He wants her and so does the beast inside of him. But she is so sexy, he's losing his ability to resist.
Callum panted as his heart pounded in his chest. The change was happening again. He whimpered as he tried to stop it. He clawed the wall as his fingers extended, turning into long claws, leaving their human side behind. Sweat formed on his brow as he pushed the beast back.
“Hey, you’re up,” Samantha said, walking toward him. “Are you hungry?”
He turned to look at her.
“What’s wrong?” She rushed to him. “You’re covered in sweat.”
She led him out of the hall to the living room. She brushed the moisture off his brow and looking at him sweetly. He smiled weakly. He thought about how she’d rescued him and was able to bring him back to her house single-handedly. Strong and courageous, she bore the will of a Paladin. She was such a good woman, she didn’t deserved to be dragged into this mess between him and Eryx. I need to warn her. She has to get as far away from me as possible.
“You need to run. Get as far away from me as you can.”
“Shhhhh…” she said, stroking his hair. “No, you don’t understand. Eryx, he’s—”
He grabbed his chest, feeling the beast arise again.
“He ain’t coming in here,” she said, soothing him. “I told you I can protect us.”
“It’s not just him, it’s me. I may harm you.”
She shook her head. “You are a good man, I see it in your eyes. I know you won’t harm me. You’re just upset, that’s all.”
He wanted to believe her. He tried to believe her. But he couldn't trust himself since the mating heat started to consume him.
“It’s going to be all right. I promise," she said.
Her words comforted him, bathing his soul in a balm of deliverance from the beast within him. In her eyes, he saw light and trust while her body exhibited a hot sexuality.
“What’s going on? You want to talk about it?”
He leaned in close and wrapped his arms around her. The base of his spine thrummed to life, butterflies took flight in his stomach, and his breathing kicked up a notch the instant he touched her. With his hand placed low on her back again, he drew her into a searing kiss. Savoring her scent and loving the feel of her body. Her soft curves teased his cock, which was already rigid, fighting to be released from his pants. His mate was the epitome of femininity, and he could spend every moment of his life admiring every inch of her skin.
