Vampire Edmond Chancellor and cat shifter Tobias Crawford have had a not-so-secret affair for over three hundred years. Edmond wants to bond with Tobias permanently, but Tobias has reasons for keeping his distance.
On a chilly December night, both men turn to past memories for guidance, but it's a present danger that makes them realize that time is precious, even to men who are practically immortal.
The following excerpt from Black Cat is for readers 18 and over.
It was dark outside and although Edmond was a night person, there was nowhere else he'd rather be at the moment than here in bed with Tobias. His lover's head rested against his shoulder and Edmond caressed his sable hair.
"Thank you," Tobias said, pressing a tender kiss to Edmond's chest. "For joining the rescue."
Edmond's brow furrowed. Cupping Tobias' chin, he stared into his eyes. "You doubted I'd come for you?"
"I'm not your responsibility."
"I wasn't yours, but how many times have you watched my back?"
For the first time Edmond could remember, the cat shifter was speechless. Edmond took the opportunity to kiss him.
When it broke, Tobias had regained his voice enough to whisper, "Make love to me."
"You're sure you're ready?"
"I've never been more ready in my life." Tobias straddled Edmond and kissed him.
