She was young and vulnerable, and he should want only to protect her.
His mouth touched her skin gently, tenderly, a small caress. At once need slammed into him, hard and imperative. He could heat her heart beating to the rhythm of his. He could hear her blood run in her veins, an enticing heat that beckoned to him, that triggered a tremendous physical hunger.
He closed his eyes, and his tongue found her pulse, bathing the area once, twice. His teeth scraped gently over the vein . . . then sank deeply . . .
