Kane is nearly as big as Grim is, and at first I wasn’t expecting him to volunteer, but now it kind of makes sense. Kane spent most of his time as a vampire as a recluse. His mate has brought warmth to his life, and I think for the first time Kane sees his solitude and pain reflected in someone else. Maybe all of us see a piece of ourselves in Grim.
“I think I might stay for a short while,” he says, reaching out his hand and shaking Kane’s. “Thank you for the offer.”
“I’ll leave you to sort out the details,” I say, looking around to the family. “I’m going to stay here for a few more days with my mate.” I pull Loren to my side and smile at her. “We’ll meet you back at home and we can talk further.”
Grim nods to me and I shake his hand before we walk out of the room. When we make our way up the stairs, Loren leans in and whispers to me.
“Do you think it will be okay that he’s here?”
“There’s no need to fear him, love. Death is a part of life for some people, but not for us anymore. You and I are going to live until the end of time, so think of him as a new friend that might be a little shy for a while.”
“I can’t imagine someone so big being shy.”
I smile at her as I open our bedroom door and close it behind us. “Can’t you? Imagine being alone in the world and not having any family.” I touch her chin and smile at her when I see the realization dawn on her. “He’s not unlike any of us at one point. I’ve heard legends about what he’s capable of, but humans have all kinds of ideas about our kind. Isn’t it better to welcome him to our family than to create an enemy? Look at the way Gordon lived his life and how he chose to rule. I won’t ever tolerate that for our city.”
“I’m still so new to all of this, but I know that beyond anything else, I’m so proud of you and proud that you’re my mate.” I see the look of love in her eyes, along with the stirrings of desire.
“You have all the time in the world to learn what it is I do and what your new role will be.” I run my hands down her body and to her hips as I walk her back towards the bed.
Her eyebrows draw together and the backs of her legs hit the mattress. “My new role?”
“You’re going to be a mother,” I say as I grab the edge of her shirt and yank it off of her in one quick motion. “I’ve found out that humans and vampires can breed together.” She falls back on the bed, and I knee her legs open as I unbutton my pants and pull out my cock. I’m hard and dripping, thinking about making her round and ripe. “You want a family, love, and I’m going to make sure you get it.”
Laying my lower half down on top of her, I slide my cock between her wet lips and thrust all the way in. Her pussy grips me tight. I feel her wet folds wrap around me and I begin to move. I grab her wrists and hold them above her head as I go deeper with every glide of my steel-hard length.
“I need to taste you,” I say as I kiss her lips softly and then trail my lips down her neck. “It’s been too long.” It’s only been hours, but my body already craves the taste of her.
She moans as she spreads her legs wider and tilts her hips up. I suck on her nipple before I kiss the tender skin under her breast and gently graze my teeth along it until I make a small cut. When I taste her, my cock swells inside her and she cries out as her pussy drips.
“Bishop, don’t tease me,” she begs as her legs shake. I know she’s right on the edge of her orgasm, but I want her to say what she wants out loud.
“What do you need, love?” Her sweet taste runs through me and it’s like I’ve been injected with pleasure and strength. I’ve never felt more alive than when I’m inside of her.
“I want to taste you, too,” she cries out as I slow down just enough to keep her on the edge.
“You’ll have everything your heart desires, Loren,” I say. I bite my wrist and bring it to her mouth.
She licks the wound and immediately our connection is sharper and more powerful. It electrifies my body with lust and love at the same time and there’s no more holding back.
