Excerpt from “Redemption: My Vampire Lover (Part 2)” – FOR MATURE AUDIENCES, 18+

“Do you feel that?” he asked.

I nodded up at him, seeing his eyes rage with passion.  “I feel that and more,” I teased.

“No, listen to me.  Do you feel that?”

Wondering what he meant exactly, I closed my eyes for a moment.  The sounds of his heart slammed into my hand.  He kept my hand cradled in his against his chest while he covered his other hand around mine holding his divine manhood.  His heart was beating, wildly beating like my own.  My eyes flew open.  “Do vampires, does your heart?  I mean,” I tripped over my words as I almost stumbled out of his grasp.

He didn’t let me move.  “You’re right.  I don’t know about other vampires, but I know the minute I laid eyes on you, my heart came to life.  It beats now and it beats for you alone, Caroline.  That spark between us.  Do you remember?  I almost fell down when we touched?  I rushed to the table to collect my thoughts.  I sat there realizing my heart was working, for the first time in my life, I felt alive.  Quite literally.  You did that.  I was dead inside, but your touch, your gaze into my eyes brought me to life.  I can feel your energy running through my veins.  I want you to be mine.  Forever.  If you’ll have me.”  His voice trailed off as he leaned closer and brushed a kiss across my cheeks.

“You’re telling me you didn’t have a heartbeat before?”

He smiled at me smugly and focused his attention on my hips.  I followed his gaze.  He wrapped both of his hands around mine as I held his cock against my naked belly.  He stroked my hands, and then opening up the palms of his large hands, he quietly encouraged me to assume the task.  When I took charge, he mumbled, “You’re stronger than you think.”

A fever of blushes covered my face.  “Oh my goodness, did I hurt you?”  I wanted to blush again, but his declaration, that he felt something quite literally when he had met me surfaced in my mind and sent me into oblivion.  True love.  I gazed up at him, marveling at the look of pleasure on his face.  True love.

He moaned and rocked his hips gently into my hands.

I rubbed the head of his cock with my thumb, feeling a sweet stickiness at the tip.

Raphael moved his hand between my thighs and rubbed my clit, his fingers pumping inside me a few times.

My hips met his movements and I groaned, feeling the warmth of his manhood slide between my legs.
