towel and picking up the remnants of clothing I've tossed to the floor. My
crumpled clothes hang from her arms. Her stunning deep-brown eyes peek over the
pile. Long black curls fall against her pale face. “Perhaps it's time you found
yourself a suitor?”

Having known him only one night, he understood me and my body more than anyone
ever has, including myself.
Snow, you know there's not a man out there who can tame me.” I toss her a wink.
“But maybe someday I'll find someone I might let try.”

edge. My hand settles against my cock and it stiffens as her image refuses to

my fingers, holding onto her for dear life. Eyes so deep green they flickered
like the emeralds in my father's crown.

with pleasure. And she'll never know that she gave me more that night.

pokes into the back of my ass through my clothing. Teeth graze the length of my
neck as he nuzzles my flesh. Dipping his hands into my corset, he cups my
nipples and yanks them free of the barrier between us. Twisting them in his
fingers, he caresses them until they're stiff and swollen.

blaze. Their icy hue deepens into a softer blue the longer he stares. I almost
think he looks upon me with love, not lust. But I won't give in to those
thoughts. I know he wants only my body, because we fit together. We satisfy a
need we each have—a primal desire to be raw and untamed. Love isn't an option.
Yet the thought of this ever ending between us bores a hole into my heart. But
