I'm taking part in Victoria Blisse's Sunday Snog this week for the first time and thought I'd share a kiss from the first book in my Shifters' Haven Series - Luke's Surprise released with Total-E-Bound. The kiss takes place soon after Luke meets his mate Mark and things get a little heated. But first of all let me share the blurb of the book with you.
Is true love with your soul mate worth risking your life for?
When werewolf Luke Morgan runs a simple errand with his brother Kelan, the last thing he expects to find at their neighbour’s ranch is his soul mate. The incredibly sexy ranch foreman Mark Malone is every gay man’s fantasy. The only problem? Neither Luke nor Mark is gay.
Unable to deny the attraction they feel for one another, they decide to try and make things work between them. The relationship at first seems all they could hope for but trouble in the guise of Ethan Walker, a werewolf who has his sights set on Luke, threatens to destroy their newfound happiness and the future they have planned together.
When Ethan’s threats turn to physical violence, will they still think the mating bond and blossoming love between them is worth risking their lives for?
Luke stopped walking when Mark called his name but he didn’t turn around. Mark wasn’t sure but he thought he could smell tears.
“Is this what you want?” he called out.
He walked forward and put his hand on Luke’s shoulder.
“Please, Luke, I need to know.”
Luke shook his head but he didn’t answer. The sorrow radiating from Luke hit Mark hard. His mate was in turmoil. Luke didn’t need to say anything for Mark to know how he felt. He could sense his mate’s emotions with the utmost clarity, they mirrored his own.
Mark walked around to stand in front of his mate. The pain and sadness he found on Luke’s face nearly brought him to his knees. The fact that he was responsible for hurting Luke made him feel sick to his stomach. He reached up and brushed away a tear from Luke’s cheek. Even with bloodshot eyes and a snotty nose Luke was still the most beautiful creature he had ever seen.
“I’m sorry, Luke. Please forgive me. I know this is not what either of us wanted or expected but I can’t let you go, not now that I’ve found you. I’m sure, somehow that we can make this work, if you want to try.”
Mark could see Luke was still wary but some of the tension left him with Mark’s speech.
“Do you really mean that?”
“Every word. We’re mates. It’s fate, Luke. I can’t ignore that and I don’t want to.”
Mark reached out and held Luke’s face in his hands. He leaned forward and tentatively pressed his lips to Luke’s.
Luke gasped when Mark’s lips met his. He wrapped his arms around Mark’s neck and pulled him closer until their bodies were touching from head to toe. When he opened his mouth in invitation, Mark moaned, his tongue finally slipping inside Luke’s mouth.
The kiss was gentle at first but soon built in intensity until both men were groaning, their tongues duelling with one another’s for supremacy. Mark couldn’t believe how incredible Luke tasted—no kiss with a woman had ever felt this good.
“Oh god.” Luke whimpered when Mark pulled away to catch a breath.
“Wow. That was…”
“Kiss me again?”
There was nothing gentle about the second kiss. Their mouths crashed together in a frenzy. Mark ran his hands down Luke’s sides and he slid them around to his ass to hold him in place while he ground their hard cocks together. They both groaned at the contact. Mark realised that Luke’s cock rubbing against his own didn’t feel awkward in any way, just the opposite in fact. It felt perfect. Like it was meant to be, which Mark supposed, it was. He wanted, no, he needed more.
“Oh, ‘m gonna come if you don’t stop that.” Luke groaned into Mark’s mouth.
Mark wasn’t turned off by the declaration. Luke’s words only excited him further. Shit, he was close to blowing himself and Luke’s whimpers and moans were pulling him closer to the edge with every passing second.
“What the fuck is going on here?” Mark and Luke froze when Joe Walker’s enraged voice boomed out behind them.
Well there you have it, Luke and Mark's first kiss, I hope you enjoyed it as much as they did. ;)
