New from Toni Griffin, author of the Amber Allure best-seller Frankie’s Vamp…..
(Book 2 of the Hot Encounters series)… The last thing centuries-old vampire Bryce Denahli expects during a routine night at Hot Encounters is to get arrested. He’s even more surprised when the sexy, straight police detective turns out to be his mate. Bryce has been alone for a long time, and he doesn’t care what the law says about stalking…the man is his!
In all his life, Lucas Ford has never had romantic feelings towards a man. But after one meeting with a certain vampire, he can’t get the man out of his head. It doesn’t help that Bryce keeps showing up everywhere Lucas goes. Unable to fight the feelings, Lucas tracks down Bryce and puts the man’s life in danger with his actions. With bodies piling up around the city due to rogue vampires moving in, the last thing Lucas needs is a complicated love life. Can Lucas reconcile his thoughts and feelings towards another man before it’s too late?
The vampire seemed almost crazed, and Luc knew if he didn’t get the damn thing off him soon, the creature would happily drain him dry. Luc didn’t plan on dying today. He had work waiting for him on his desk at the precinct. His captain would be royally pissed off at him if Luc decided to die and the man was forced to find a replacement for him.
Thankful it was his left arm the vamp had attached itself to, Luc cocked back his right fist and let fly into the side of the vampire’s head. Luc wasn’t a small man. Standing over six and a half feet, he weighed in at over a hundred kilos. He had put all the power he could behind his punch. The one thing he had completely forgotten though was the fact that the vampire was attached to his arm.
Luc felt his flesh tearing as the teeth that were imbedded in his arm were ripped out with the momentum of the vampire flying backward at the force of Luc’s hit. Luc cursed up a blue streak as he quickly ripped his shredded shirt off over his head and wrapped it tightly around his arm.
He looked up in time to see the vampire getting to his feet once again, Luc’s blood smeared across his face. The man seemed to hesitate for a second and weigh his options. As if he was deciding if he would survive if he attacked Luc again.
Luc wasn’t going to wait around all day for the man to make up his mind. He was bleeding profusely from far too many places on his body, and he needed to get to the hospital.
Standing tall, he gestured to the rogue vampire in the classic “come on” signal. “I don’t have all day. Let’s finish this.” Luc planted his feet in case the vamp rushed him again. He didn’t want to end up on his ass. After several seconds, the vampire must have decided his chances of surviving, if he attacked again, were too slim, and turned to flee.
