Excerpt PG 13
“You said you studied to save lives. What do you study?” Isaac asked.
“I’m studying to be a nurse. I also have a job and friends. Things I plan to do. Things I need to do. You know, a life.” She folded her arms across her chest. The thought of losing progress on her career made her angry.
Isaac chuckled, but sobered. “There’s no need to point that out. We know that you have dreams and goals. You’ll have almost everything that you had there, here. It might take us a little time to fix everything.”
“I don’t want it here. I want my life with my friends as I choose it.” She shook her head.
She inhaled and drew in a spicy musk. She didn’t know which one that alluring fragrance belonged to, or if it somehow mixed. That scent went straight to her head. She’d known that talking wouldn’t last long, but she thought she’d last more than a couple sentences. When she’d imagined it, she’d pictured them kissing her and distracting her, not her losing control sitting beside them.
“But mating isn’t something any of us choose. No one knows who’s right for them until we feel that pull.” Isaac put his hand on her leg.
The heat of his hand seared through the thin fabric of her dress. She’d have wear something a lot thicker than this lightweight cloth to blunt the feel. He wasn’t trying to generate heat. His body ran hotter than a human. Damn, that drew her almost as much as his scent. She wanted to snuggle right up to him and feel that warmth seeping into her.
“But I don’t think you two are right for me.” She shook her head.
“Aren’t we?” Neil reached over and touched her arm. “Has your body ever burned for anyone else the way it burns for ours?”
Not even close. She didn’t like them right now and she could feel her body softening toward them. A frown pulled at her lips as frustration built inside her. The two men sat one on each side. She couldn’t decide which to snuggle against.
“We’re not denying what we want. If you’d like, you can touch a little,” Isaac said.
“That’s what got me into trouble before the Appari bitch slapped me and tried to kill me.” Naomi looked at him and shook her head. She wouldn’t fall for the same thing all over again.
Isaac grinned. “It was such an enjoyable trouble aside from the Appari. I loved the way you tasted and how your breasts felt pressed against my chest. The only thing that would have been better would be to have you completely naked, and in a place where we could enjoy you.”
