Despite her initial dislike, Cess feels strangely drawn to the mysterious, handsome Draken, but she soon learns that Draken has dark secrets.
Draken Draglen is in town to get the family business in order. He lives by one rule: only sleep with women of his own kind. When Cess walks down the street to introduce herself, Draken fears he is going to break his rule. He is determined to stay away from her, fearing his dark secret may be revealed, but his need for Cess is too strong. Draken makes a decision that could change not only his life, but that of his family as well.
“I was invited,” I say, finding my voice.
“Oh, well I like entertainment also, Cess, besides, remember, you owe me something,” Draken says, coming closer. I feel the need to kiss him, like in my dream. I want him.
“I, I, umm, don’t owe you,” I say, feeling really hot now. I should go.
“You owe me, Cess, and I want a dance. I hear from my brothers you can dance. Now I want a private viewing of your… skills,” he says, not stopping the eye contact.
“Draken, I’m sorry for coming to your home, I will leave now,” I say, trying to get past him, but instantly I feel his hands on my waist, holding me in place.
“You will dance with my brothers, and not dance with me? Why? I’m not as handsome as they are?” he asks, looking into my eyes, searching. I see the other brothers are not leaving this time. It’s as if they are waiting for the answer to a question, more than just a dance.
“I thought you didn’t want me at your house, now you want a dance?” I say, frowning a little.
“You have such bravery about you, Cess. Yes, I want you to dance for me, and then I will dance for you; if you don’t like it, then you may leave,” Draken says, with a small smile. Yikes, I could climax with that look he just gave me. Please don’t let me go back on my promise.
“So, what’s it going to be?” Showken says. I turn and see all eyes are on me. What are they waiting for?
“Fine, I’ll do one dance,” I say. Draken turns me around to face me, placing a very slow, tender kiss on my lips. Shit! I’m in freaking trouble.
