Zombie Wolf by Ally Thomas Emerges with Darlings of Decay

Newly released is the Zombie anthology, Darlings of Decay and I’m excited about its release because I have an excerpt included in the ebook called “Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation.”

Spin-off to The Vampire from Hell series

If you are a fan of my series, The Vampire from Hell you may want to read this short story. It is set in the year 3015 A.D. featuring a werewolf who was born with a blood virus. His mother is a vampire from Hell and his father is a hellhound turned werewolf. Sound familiar?

Meet Zachary, the Zombie Wolf.

I thought it would be fun to set a story around a child of Rayea and Blick’s. This is assuming that they actually get together, are married at some point, and live happily ever after with a son (if it occurs in that order). It’s a possibility for where the Vampire from Hell series may be headed. But it’s just a possibility.

What is the story “Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation” about?

At twenty-four Zachary has been through many zombie outbreaks and knows how to stay alive. He’s been so good at killing zombies for so many years that he makes a living at it. He claims it’s the reason he has the nickname the ‘Zombie Wolf,’ even though he knows that’s not the case.

With time and space travel being as common as the Internet and cell phones, Zachary and his team travel often to kill zombies and rid the solar system of total infestation. Now in the year 3015 A.D., more sightings of zombies are being reported on Planet Earth, but no one knows how to kill these snake-like creatures. Zachary’s destiny unfolds when he comes face to face with the next generation of zombie and an innocent bystander gets bitten. He considers killing the attractive girl because she’s as good as dead anyways. But when he sees she has a werewolf mark, same as what he has, he knows he must save her.

You can read Zombie Wolf (the short story) in Darlings of Decay. It is FREE at Smashwords | Live at Amazon

“Darlings of Decay (Zombie Stories From Your Favorite Zombie Authors)” went live this week.

From anthology coordinator and Zombie author, Kristen Middleton, “This anthology will be free on Smashwords starting Monday! It’ll be available on Amazon for a price for a few weeks but will eventually be free there, too (and most other popular eBook sites). Over twenty female authors with chilling tales of death, decay, and a diligence to survive in a world overtaken by the dead. Watch for it!!!”

Here’s an Excerpt from “Zombie Wolf”:

“Zachary, this isn’t something you need to get involved in.  Just let it go.  I’ll call Containment.  We’ll act like it didn’t happen.  We don’t need this kind of trouble.”

Instantly I reacted.  My body went rigid.  She wasn’t going to be put down.  I owed it to my werewolf heritage to try to save her.  I had heard my mom’s version of my mom and dad’s romance.  Dad had never gone into details, but I knew what he had done to save my mom because she had told me.  I wasn’t anybody’s fool.  I decided to use some of my mom’s logic on my dad.

“Did you leave Mom in Hell to rot when she was turned into a vampire?  Did you?  A daughter of Satan?  When she drank Satan’s blood, you were there.  She told me.  You were there to see her change into a vampire.  That was not by accident.  You knew then who she really was, and how important she was.  She wasn’t evil like everyone thought, and you knew that.  You never doubted her even when she did.  Her exact words.  Over the years, you’ve done everything you can to save her.  Every time she has needed saving.  Mom told me!”

“Your mother is a writer.  She exaggerates,” my dad replied, rolling his eyes toward the ceiling.  “Who is this girl to you anyways, Zach?  You don’t even know her?”

“I get that.  I’m not an idiot.”  I tried to control my rage.  “I’m not sure, Dad.  But I felt it when I saw her in the coffee shop.  I don’t want to regret later that I could have done something, you know?  I don’t want to live alone, being the only freak of nature, a werewolf zombie even if it means I can walk among them undetected.  I don’t want that!  If I don’t try to save her, I won’t know.  Now will I?  What if she too was born with the new virus?  What if that makes her unique like me?”

“That would explain the mark.  Maybe she was born with the virus.  Who is her father or mother?  Your aunt?  This may be beyond your abilities, son.  I’m sorry.  We don’t save zombies.  We destroy them.  We have to stay on top of this situation before it gets worse among the vampires and werewolves.”

“It’s gotten worse, Dad.  It’s jumped species.  I know it.”

“Do you have proof,” he challenged.

I pointed to the girl in the cage.  “She’s a werewolf, Dad.  She told me so.”

Not believing me, he grunted.

Using his same logic, I rebelled.  He had to understand what he was saying.  Rules were meant to be bent sometimes, even broken.

“Before there were zombies,” I began.  “Werewolves used to kill vampires.  And yet, you didn’t kill Mom.  You were there to protect her.”  As best I could, I faced Dad head on.  I made a point to thrust my chin up and glare up at him like I had seen my mom doing on more than one occasion.  With his height, he had no problem looking down at me, but he had to know I wasn’t backing down.  I hadn’t backed down against Rex and the others, and I wasn’t backing down now.  As insane as it seemed, I wasn’t wrong about this.

Dad searched my face for many minutes.  The silence in the room thickened.  I could hear only the girl’s ragged breathing as she fought the poison.

Trying to remain calm, I refused to look away from my dad, glaring up at him.  I was ready to take on the world.  My god, I thought.  What has happened to me?  I turned my attention back to the girl.  She had slowly approached my side of the cage and stood near me, also glaring over my shoulder at my dad.  Her blonde hair was tousled amid her face, but I could see the distrust behind her eyes.  Even in her chaotic state, she looked adorable.

In typical parent fashion, my dad reached out his hand and rubbed his fingers through my black hair, somewhat shaking my entire body.  He was unbelievably strong.  He did that dismissal move on me when he wanted me to know that, for now, he was tabling the situation.  I knew it wasn’t over.

“We’ll have to address this if your experiment doesn’t work.  Okay?” he asked.

“Yes, sir,” I replied.

Finally he patted me on the shoulder.  “I forget how stubborn, like your mother, you are.”  He chuckled and walked to the door.

Realizing I had gotten my way and he was leaving me to my task, I watched as he lingered at the door.  “You know,” he said.  “You are the son of a vampire with healing blood.  Maybe that can help.”

The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4) Update

Work on the next installment in the Vampire from Hell (Part 4) continues. A late summer release is still on the calendar. The reason I’m bringing it up is because Part 4 is going to have a cliffhanger ending.  I typically do this with most of my books. Read “Coming Soon.”

Remember you can start Conquest (My Vampire Lover #1) for Free at Amazon. I included an excerpt from both novellas below.

EXCERPT from Redemption (The following excerpt is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY)
He smiled at me smugly and focused his attention on my hips.  I followed his gaze.  He wrapped both of his hands around mine as I held his cock against my naked belly.  He stroked my hands, and then opening up the palms of his large hands, he quietly encouraged me to assume the task.  When I took charge, he mumbled, “You’re stronger than you think.”
A fever of blushes covered my face.  “Oh my goodness, did I hurt you?”  I wanted to blush again, but his declaration, that he felt something quite literally when he had met me surfaced in my mind and sent me into oblivion.  True love.  I gazed up at him, marveling at the look of pleasure on his face.  True love.
He moaned and rocked his hips gently into my hands.
I rubbed the head of his cock with my thumb, feeling a sweet stickiness at the tip.
Raphael moved his hand between my thighs and rubbed my clit, his fingers pumping inside me a few times.
My hips met his movements and I groaned, feeling the warmth of his manhood slide between my legs.
“I don’t want to control these feelings I have for you.”  He gathered me up in his arms.  “I don’t know where they came from.  Maybe it was the wolf chant that did it.  I don’t know for sure, but I know I feel this.”
A slight smile crossed his lips.  He embraced me tightly and then picked me up in his arms.
I placed my hand over his heart.  “True love,” I whispered as the words expelled out of my mouth in the form of a few short breaths.  Could it be?
“This can’t be wrong, Caroline.  I don’t want to deny the possibility of the love we can have.  Say you agree?”
“I think I already love you, Raphael.  I’ve never known anyone like you.  You’re a glorious, magnificent vampire.”
When I felt his easing himself into me, my body melted.  “Oh my god, yes,” I cried out.  “Yes!  Yes!” Wanting to increase our pace, I started to ride him with a newborn intensity.  The warmth of his blood raced through my veins.  “I’m yours,” I cried out.  “I’m yours!”
“Shh,” he said.  “Don’t listen to my blood.  I don’t want you to be my servant or blood source.  Equal.” With his muscular arms, he brought me up and down a time or two, shifting the rhythm of lovemaking to a slower urgency.  “I want us to be equals.  I want to cherish this moment forever.  I want to look in your eyes as I’m inside you and know if we are never to be together again we had this one moment, out here in this wasteland.”
“By this rock,” I purred, letting him assume control.
“Not too fast, my sweet.  Savor this feeling.”
I smiled down into his striking, pale blue eyes, watching how they glowed in the low light.  His dark eyelashes fluttered now and again, but he refused to take his eyes off of me as we made love in such a desolate place.  I grew hotter by the minute witnessing the desire in his stare.  I studied him.  There was an inherent strength in his features, almost a haughtiness I could visualize him giving to others he disliked. For me, in that moment, that strength was etched across his face with a look of devotion and confidence I had never seen before.  The turquoise blue in his eyes brought out a growing passion I could see that was all for me.  This could be my destiny, being with this man forever.  If I was as bold as I had just been taking him in my hands, a future with this vampire could be in my grasp.  But it meant sacrificing everything. Just for him.
When I felt myself about to climax, my head fell backwards and I gave myself up to him completely.  I let him lead the way and delighted in the ecstasy of his deliberately slow pace.  Waves of warmth rushed through my body as I neared orgasm.  I’ll remember this moment forever.
“Slowly, my sweet.  Slowly.”
I screamed the first time I came.  His hands rhythmically worked my hips up and down on his cock, refusing to stop.  He increased the speed of his movements ever so slightly.  I was helpless to stop his lovely hastened pace.  My heart raced rapidly and I wanted to slam my body into his, feverishly, insanely, erotically like I was in control of him, like he was there to please me and only me.
“Shhh,” he said.  He gathered me close against his chest.  “That’s the blood talking.  Don’t listen to that. It’ll pass.  Focus on this.”  He pulled me upwards and let me slide down again on his massive manhood. “Come for me again, Caroline.”

EXCERPT from Conquest (This excerpt is also for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY)

I felt his warm, wet tongue dart in my mouth, sucklingly my bottom lip. A sting of pain surfaced.

I shrieked, quickly pulling away from him.

He held me fast in his arms. Our eyes locked.

Again I tasted the sweetness of blood, but this time it was my own. Carefully, I licked my bottom lip where he had bitten me.

Another gleam from the moon shone upon his face, his bright eyes sparkled with a savage knowledge beyond lust and desire, one of sheer hunger. He would be mine.

Before I could stop him, he slashed at his well-toned chest with his nails. Lines of blood formed across his muscles.

“Drink of me.”

Then he resumed fucking me fiercely, refusing to stop.

I stared at the streams of blood rolling down his chest as I rode him. The wolf in me instantly awoke. Warm rushes of power and hunger rose up in me. The wolf was coming for me and I wouldn’t be able to deny him.

“Let it go,” my vampire lover whispered into the night. “Drink of me. I’ll make you queen when Father dies and we’ll rule this kingdom together despite them.”

The moon bathed him in its lush glow and I couldn’t resist marveling at his naked form. He was exquisite. His thick, muscular chest glistened with blood and sweat and I held on to his shoulders as I drove my hips down upon his, feeling his magnificent cock serge deep inside me. Each stride I took sent me ever closer to him forever. I took his mouth with a savage intensity I had never known and then I lavished my kisses upon his chest, licking his blood and sweat in long, broad laps.

We will be together.

I leaned my head back, exposing my neck completely. “Do it. Do it now. He’s here!”

Answering my request, he pulled me into his embrace and sank his teeth into my neck.

I cried out, instantly thrusting myself upwards to meet his fanged kiss. A flood of raw, electrifying sensations exploded inside me and multiple orgasms rocketed through me.

He lifted me slightly off the bed and he drank from me, holding me gently in his arms the whole time.

I pressed my back into his firm hands and focused on meeting his tempo as I rode him. The room began to spin. Blood trickled down my chest, running past my belly button and along the inside of my thighs. A delightful shiver of fear passed through me as my vampire shuddered and came inside me. I will be his.

 

Friday Freebie: Free ebook, Giveaway, & Confession by Ally Thomas

Ally Thomas, an Amazon Bestseller author in Fantasy and writer of the paranormal fantasy series, the Vampire from Hell sent me a text the other day and said she was coming out. I stopped for a moment because Ally is straight and married. I texted her back and asked her what she meant exactly. “About the pen name stuff,” she replied.

Many of Ally’s fans have been wondering why Ally stopped writing on her popular series, the Vampire from Hell last summer. After she released “A Vampire on Vacation (The Vampire from Hell – Part 3)”, Ally seemed to take an extended vacation herself. Oddly enough she has been busy writing in between everything else, but not on what we’d expect her to be writing. Continue the interview below.

Interview with Ally Thomas

Randi: I’ve gotta ask you straight up. What happened? You pushed the deadline for Part 4 of the Vampire from Hell series several times last year. People now wonder if you are coming back with anymore in the series. Are you?

Ally: I am coming back with the series. My heroine, Rayea is my favorite subject, hands down. I know it’s upsetting to my fans that I have taken so long to get the next installment out.  And I apologize for making them wait, but it’ll be worth it. I can tell now it’s going to be a much better installment than the one I accidentally deleted in October 2012. I’ve got my confidence back writing as Rayea.

Randi: Excuse me, did you say deleted?!

Ally: Yes. I probably shouldn’t admit this. I really nose-dived into self doubt or writer’s block last year. Deleting a book certainly didn’t help. I always thought that writer’s block was a lame excuse for a writer to use until I experienced it first hand. I’m not sure what happened after Part 3 was released last July. Maybe I burned myself out.  Getting laid off at Christmas only added more to my situation. I’m happy to say I’m writing again and that’s all that matters. I’m working on Part 4, but I’d be lying to you if I said I’ve been working on it all this time.

Randi: So you haven’t then?

Ally: I’ve been exploring new ideas and contemplating writing under pseudonyms.  While Rayea’s stories are my first love, I realized late last year that I had hit a brick wall with my writing. I needed a break and wanted a new challenge. When I accidentally deleted the old version of Part 4, I flipped out. Later I realized it was a sign. I needed to re-evaluate things. I started playing around with the idea of a paranormal romance after Christmas.

Randi: Okay, so what did you do? You’re being very vague still, Ally. Come on. Spill it!

Ally: I have several author friends who write exclusively in paranormal romance and erotica. I create covers for them and format their paperbacks so I got curious after skimming sections of their books. I wanted to see if I too could write something ‘romancy’ as I put it. My focus has been fantasy and sci-fi and that’s what I wanted to write with the Vampire from Hell series. Romance, even erotic romance is so different. My strengths are dialogue while writing description is a challenge for me. I had to write lots of description in romance so I read some ‘How To’ books and got to work. I’m not sure I’m any good at it yet, but I’m exploring. I like how different it is and I love to hear from readers. Finding out what they like about your romance ebook is very informative. Reader feedback has always been fun! I think I needed the distraction of challenging myself to write something  out of my comfort zone in order to find my way back to the Vampire from Hell series.

Randi: I thought you wrote Young Adult. You don’t consider the Vampire from Hell a YA series?

Ally: No, I don’t consider the Vampire from Hell series YA. I don’t market any of my books in that series as YA. Rayea curses a lot and talks about all of her boyfriends she has sex with. She may not go into details, but someday she might. Rayea has a complicated sex life, remember? I think of it as paranormal fantasy, not Young Adult.

Randi: So how did you approach this idea of writing a paranormal romance?

Ally: Being a movie buff, I watched a lot of romantic movies. I talked with a few romance author friends of mine a lot, so much so I probably annoyed them. Finally I figured out a story I liked, the language I wanted to use, and went with it. I did a test run (releasing a story in February) that seemed to go over nicely and now I’m back at it with another installment of the story for a release later this summer.

Randi: A test run? What do you mean?

Ally: I released the first novella under an unknown pen name., not related to my name.

Randi: Okay, I’m lost. Not Eva Thomas?

Ally: Under a different pseudonym. Different person, social networking sites, blog, website, everything. No, not Eva J. Thomas.

Randi: You are seriously sneaky. Two pen names instead of one. Wow, you have been a busy girl. What’s this other pen name?

Ally: Some people know, but I’m not telling publicly just yet. Some of my friends and street team members know. I’m only sharing the Eva J. Thomas pen name today because several of my author friends thought my story had been stolen. And they guessed the Virgin Moon cover was one I’d do. That was the sinker. I realized I needed to tell everyone what I had been up to since last summer.

Randi: So let me get this straight. You released the same story under two pen names? Eva and this secretive one?

Ally: Something like that. Two stories by two pen names. Everything is copyrighted under my name. The stories start off similar, but end up going in other directions. I played around with the plot and the sex scenes in Eva’s version are way hotter in my opinion. I will have to say that if you have read the other story (written under the unknown pen name) and you read Eva’s Virgin Moon you will see some similarity. I’ve been practicing and working up the nerve to write more explicit. That was a tough hurdle for me to jump creatively let’s say. Writing in the Romance genre has been a lot of fun and I think it’s improved my writing too. I’m more patient with description now. At least I hope I am.

Randi: Okay so we should ask our readers then if you are a reader of Ally Thomas and know this other pen name she writes under, please don’t share it online.

Ally: Yes, please. Ask them not to share it. The Eva one I’m attaching my name to so people will see that both of us are collaborating on some books. I’m sure I’ll talk about the other pen name at some point. Right now, I’m asking those who know to not share that info.

Randi: So what genre do you like writing in most then? Fantasy or Romance? Or Erotica?

Ally: That’s a great question because I’ve been wondering that myself. Possibly Fantasy and Horror are my favorite genres, but I think I’m going to say that I love the variety of writing in several genres and having the courage to do it. As an Indie Author, I can decide what I want to do and how to market my books. Somewhere along the way I lost my confidence as an author. I don’t mean I forgot how to write, but I struggled to write what I wanted to write. I thought I should write what others wanted me to do. It dawned on me a few days ago when I managed to sneak in writing on the upcoming Part 4 of the Vampire from Hell series in between a training delivery for a client just how much I love the first series I ever wrote. Looking back, it brings so many memories to mind when I published that first short story called “The Vampire from Hell (Part 1) – The Beginning” January 2011. Seven thousand words. It was an absolutely insane idea to release such a short book. Had I put that story in romance, they would have killed me over the short length and I would have crumbled under any negative reviews. But I have never regretted that move. It’s been free all this time and it’s the best move I ever made. I know that now. As an Indie Author, I can explore new avenues and ways to write every day. Also I’ve been fascinated to see that the ebook market is changing. New Indie Authors are publishing stories, novels, novellas every day defining the length. To some, 100,000 words is a novel. To another, 30,000 words is a novella. If readers are open to the experience, they get to enjoy that author’s contribution. Amazon even has this new thing called Kindle Serials where authors publish an ongoing serialization of a story idea.

Randi: Is that where the serial romance idea came from then? Your first Eva story is an ‘episode’.

Ally: Possibly. I liked the idea of a romance in episodes. As you know, I write parts of the Vampire from Hell series. Installments. I can’t write long works. Beginning/Middle/End. The traditional way. That is another confession or realization I made over these long months. I’d love to be able to sit down and write 100,000 word novel. Maybe some day I will. For now my length is anywhere from 25,000 to 55,000 words per ebook. I’ve been wrestling with trying to fit in more as an author, trying to do approaches that work for others. But it’s not me. I’m not going to write massively long books and I need to own up to that, privately and officially. I want to find that courage I had in late 2011 and approach my writing (whether it is as Ally Thomas or some other name) and than means me standing up to some personal demons I’ve been fighting with. I never realized how much it would take daily to promote myself as an author when I first started out. Now I know and I have to be ready for it so it doesn’t consume me again. I’ve gotta approach writing the way I want to or I won’t last at it.

Randi: That makes sense. It sounds like you have been figuring out a lot of things so are you ready to tell us more about Virgin Moon?

Ally: Absolutely and I included an excerpt too.

About Virgin Moon

Let’s learn what “Virgin Moon” is about…

Vincent, the rebel vampire son of the dark lord Alichino, receives Emily, a virgin werewolf as a playmate. He wants no part of his father’s latest toy until he looks into the virgin’s eyes and feels his heart respond. Vincent realizes he must escape with the werewolf beauty who has awakened his heart before she’s found or dies at the hands of his evil father. (Word count 28,500)

Virgin Moon is the first episode in an erotic werewolf/vampire romance by Ally Thomas, author of the paranormal fantasy series, the Vampire from Hell series. As a sideline writing project, Ally Thomas decided in 2013 to write a paranormal erotica novella series under the pen name Eva J. Thomas in between her other paranormal series. More episodes will follow.

Randi: I like Vincent. He sounds very delicious. Tall, dark, and handsome with blue eyes.

Ally: Lol! I suppose so. I had to write my vampire hero, the man Emily falls in love with as a dark and mysterious vampire with a compassionate heart.

Randi: What was it like writing in a werewolf heroine?

Ally: I enjoyed it actually. I know that’s hard to imagine since we are vampire fans, but I’m starting to embrace the ‘fur’ *wink* and I had fun with Emily’s character and the transformation ideas. I’m excited to see where it takes me for this story.

Excerpt from “Virgin Moon” (A Werewolf/Vampire Serial Romance, Episode #1) – ADULT CONTENT WARNING
“Are you a virgin?” Vincent ran his hands through his shortly cropped wavy black hair and scratched his scruffy beard, obviously waiting for me to respond in some fashion. I noticed he stared for a few moments at my opened thighs. His shirt was the only clothing I had on. Finally he crisscrossed his hands behind his head and simply watched me.
I wanted to lie and say that I wasn’t a virgin, but drinking in his handsome presence, I couldn’t deny him the truth. I wouldn’t be able to deny him anything I realized. My inner core surged with hot desire for him. I swallowed down my fears. “Yes,” I finally said. “But I’m experienced.” With that utterance, I hoped Vincent would understand what I meant.

He laughed, low and seductive. A smile swept across his face and his eyes brightened. Slowly he raised an eyebrow at me. “Indeed?” he whispered. “You find me attractive, don’t you?”

“Yes,” I replied feeling a bulge in his pants meet the curve of my buttocks as I rested upon him.

Vincent gently ran his fingers across the side of my face. He had amazing blue eyes, angular features, a perfectly shaped nose and square jaw. He was breathtaking.
When he touched me, I froze, unable to resist his sexual magnetism as he stared up at me. His eyes surely held the secrets to worlds beyond my comprehension. No one told me vampires would be so tempting. It was more than I could handle. Or was it? I pushed the naughty thought to the back of my mind.

“I promise to be gentle. I only want a taste. Will you allow me that, Emily?”

My heart again shattered when he said my name. I moaned as his large hands found my neck. He tugged lightly on my hair as he plunged his hands into the cascades of my long curly blond hair. My neck extended upwards and I was forced to look away from him. I was held captive in his embrace. His hands held me powerless as he gripped the back of my neck and the small of my back. The safety of the shirt I wore failed me and the front of my body was clearly exposed to this man, this vampire. My face reddened with shame and I forced my eyes open, looking upward. The lighted design of the warrior with his wolf returned my gaze. It was the most beautiful artwork I had ever seen. An offering of harmony between the two supernatural beings. Was such a thing possible? Instantly I felt my body relax under the vampire’s touch.

Did You Know?

The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. The three-leaf clover or shamrock had been used by St. four-leaf-cloverPatrick as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.

It has been estimated that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover; however, this probability has not deterred collectors who have reached records as high as 160,000 four-leaf clovers.

Clovers can have more than four leaves: the most ever recorded is 56, discovered by Shigeo Obara of Hanamaki, Iwate, Japan, on 10 May 2009. Five-leaf clovers are less commonly found naturally than four-leaf clovers; however, they, too, have been successfully cultivated. Children are traditionally told that a five-leaved clover is even luckier than a four-leaved one. Some four-leaf clover collectors, particularly in Ireland, regard the five-leaf clover, known as a rose clover as a particular prize. Source.

EXCERPT from Redemption (The following excerpt is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY)

He smiled at me smugly and focused his attention on my hips. I followed his gaze. He wrapped both of his hands around mine as I held his cock against my naked belly. He stroked my hands, and then opening up the palms of his large hands, he quietly encouraged me to assume the task. When I took charge, he mumbled, “You’re stronger than you think.”

A fever of blushes covered my face. “Oh my goodness, did I hurt you?” I wanted to blush again, but his declaration, that he felt something quite literally when he had met me surfaced in my mind and sent me into oblivion. True love. I gazed up at him, marveling at the look of pleasure on his face. True love.

He moaned and rocked his hips gently into my hands.

I rubbed the head of his cock with my thumb, feeling a sweet stickiness at the tip.

Raphael moved his hand between my thighs and rubbed my clit, his fingers pumping inside me a few times.

My hips met his movements and I groaned, feeling the warmth of his manhood slide between my legs.

“I don’t want to control these feelings I have for you.” He gathered me up in his arms. “I don’t know where they came from. Maybe it was the wolf chant that did it. I don’t know for sure, but I know I feel this.”

A slight smile crossed his lips. He embraced me tightly and then picked me up in his arms.

I placed my hand over his heart. “True love,” I whispered as the words expelled out of my mouth in the form of a few short breaths. Could it be?

“This can’t be wrong, Caroline. I don’t want to deny the possibility of the love we can have. Say you agree?”

“I think I already love you, Raphael. I’ve never known anyone like you. You’re a glorious, magnificent vampire.”

When I felt his easing himself into me, my body melted. “Oh my god, yes,” I cried out. “Yes! Yes!” Wanting to increase our pace, I started to ride him with a newborn intensity. The warmth of his blood raced through my veins. “I’m yours,” I cried out. “I’m yours!”

“Shh,” he said. “Don’t listen to my blood. I don’t want you to be my servant or blood source. Equal.” With his muscular arms, he brought me up and down a time or two, shifting the rhythm of lovemaking to a slower urgency. “I want us to be equals. I want to cherish this moment forever. I want to look in your eyes as I’m inside you and know if we are never to be together again we had this one moment, out here in this wasteland.”
