The beast inside roared to life, begging for just a small taste. His fingertips traced the outline of my sex through my thong. It had been so long since I had had the pleasures of a man, and his gestures were quite tempting. I lingered too long. I should have stopped myself, but his smell, his touch, his heartbeat, his warmth—it was all too tempting. I wanted so badly to taste him.
I needed to taste him. My thirst, my hunger, the nagging sensation won. I concentrated on my desire to have Erick. I needed to have him, a taste of him. I left his hot mouth and moved my kisses down towards his neck.

His succulent vein thumped against my lips; blood pulsed below the surface of his skin, just begging me to take it. I tried one last time to fight the urge. I lost control, giving in to my desire. Opening my mouth wide, I sank my teeth into his neck, severing the vein. My reward was a satisfying rush of hot blood, flooding my mouth. He moaned, a pleasurable sound. I hoped he was caught in the moment and had not realized what I had done.
I willed my desires on him as I drank in his blood. I wanted him, all of him.
Every drop of his blood was ecstasy. I pulled away and rested my head on his chest, trying to regain composure.
I listened for the sound of his heart. The soft, fading beat told me I was too late. I had taken too much blood. His heart struggled as it slowly came to a stop. Darkness surrounded me. A voice spoke softly in my head. Do not die, young one. Be strong. Do not die. I became painfully aware of liquid pouring down on me, each drop like an icy hammer hitting my sore skin. Slowly, I opened my eyes.
Harsh light blinded me. My mind was fuzzy.

I struggled to recall any small detail that might clue me in to what had happened and where I was. I reached up to wipe the splattering water from my face. I chanced opening my eyes again. As I looked up, I spotted the source of the water, a showerhead on the opposite wall. Confused by this odd location, I struggled to penetrate the blackness of my memory and figure out how I had ended up in a bathtub.
My vision, it seemed, had become remarkably sharp while I was unconscious. Cream-colored tiles covered the walls, each rippled with tiny imperfections. Each held an individual pattern, making them unique and special. Yellowing, porous grout, framing the tiles, appeared to be littered with dots from small air bubbles that had come to the surface, creating different patterns and shapes.

Even the plain white curtain that separated me from the rest of the room seemed unusually detailed and perfectly woven. I saw each tiny strand that had been tightly bound together to form this heavy, durable cloth. Freezing water still poured down on me. I needed to reach the handle and end the cold assault, but it seemed so far out of my reach.
I eased myself up to a sitting position, my muscles aching with each small movement. Looking down, I saw my beaten body. The water had washed away some of the grime, but what was left of my shredded clothes was stained and clinging to my skin.
Review: Immortalis Carpe Noctem by Katie Salidas | book'd out
The voice seemed strange and yet somehow familiar. I searched my fuzzy memories to place the voice with a face. A wave of fear came over me as I remembered the attack. Had I been kidnapped? Was I a hostage of some kind?
I struggled to recall the events of the evening. And if you can believe all of those lies, there is some beautiful swamp land in Florida for sale… Katie Salidas resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. My mouth hung open. Oh, my God, it was true.
I drank his blood. And now, Alyssa, you are one of us. Is that how I look now? Edmond took another small step closer, reaching a hand out to me. I flinched. What do I have to do with anything? A chill ran down my spine. I wanted to get out of there. I needed to escape. His lips parted on my skin, sending a shiver down my spine. I wanted him.
I wanted to share myself with him.
I wanted to be close to him. I want you, I want all of you. Willing Lysander to feel my need, I leaned in, pressing my lips to his. I want you, Lysander. I willed my feelings on him, hoping they were strong enough for him to want me as I wanted him.
