EXCERPT FROM REDEMPTION BY BONNIE VANAK


When she returned with the beverages, Robert was busy talking with Guy, while Helen and Melanie chatted. She noticed Melanie had moved closer to Robert, as if staking a claim. Such a cozy foursome. The sight made her feel lonely, and more of an outsider than ever. She set Robert’s coffee down before him, along with a container of cinnamon sticks. As he glanced up, she managed a smile.

“Susan told me you like cinnamon with your coffee.”

“Thanks. As I said, you’re a quick study.”

“I’m ready to order,” Melanie cut in. “Must we wait forever?”

The woman clearly did not like her. Was it because Melanie wished to become Robert’s mate and she’d heard Robert’s plans to mate with Aurora?

Aurora jotted down their orders, and murmured that they would be ready soon. She could feel Robert’s gaze burning into her back as she scurried off.

The table next to them needed coffee, so she hurried back with the full pot. Melanie, sitting at the booth’s end, stuck out a foot. Aurora noticed too late and tripped.

She fell hard, the coffee pot shattering and spilling hot liquid over her arm. Lupines throughout the cafe gasped and Aurora lay for a long, awful moment on the floor, wishing it would swallow her.

Cursing, Robert leapt up and crouched down by her, barking out an order for cold towels and the First Aid kit. Melanie looked at her with false concern. “I’m so sorry, Aurora. I was just stretching at the wrong time, and didn’t see you.”

“Shut up, Mel,” Robert snapped. “Aurora, let me see your arm.”

“It’s okay.” Aurora sat up. “I’m fine.”

A-okay, just fine, please don’t look, go away…

“Let me see. I know it must hurt like hell.” He gently took her arm and turned it over. His concern turned to sharp surprise.

“You’re not burned. “

Aurora pulled away, feeling her cheeks heat. “The coffee wasn’t that hot.”

“That coffee was scalding. Susan always keeps it that way.” Robert gave her an assessing look. “Why aren’t you burned?”

“I have to clean up this mess.” She knelt and began picked up the shards of glass, but Robert stayed her hand. He gave a hard glance around the room and suddenly a horde of Lupines were picking up the glass, while others rushed over with a mop and broom.

She had seldom seen such quiet, efficient obedience to a non-verbal command. It testified to Robert’s power as an alpha. He might joke about the pack not listening to him, but clearly he was in charge.

He guided her to a quiet, empty table on the café’s other side. “Sit.”

Aurora refused to meet his gaze, but he sat next to her, clasped her chin and lifted her face upward. His dark green gaze was both intrigued and troubled. A Lupine hurried over with a wet towel. Robert thanked and dismissed him, turning back to Aurora as he gently placed it over her arm. It was cold and she shivered.

She hated the cold.

“Why aren’t you burned?” he repeated. “What are you?”

“Mage. You know this.” She wished for the millionth time that she was normal.

“Mages burn like most Others. Not you.”

She thought quickly. “I’m a slave. Cadeyrn… endowed me with special talents to ensure his investment wouldn’t be harmed if I had an industrial accident.”

“Liar,” he said softly. “The Shadow Wizard isn’t that generous with his protective powers.”

“Maybe I’m just different.” She removed the towel from her arm and placed it on the table.

His mouth twisted in a wry smile. “You are different, Aurora.” Releasing her chin, he stroked a single finger over her unblemished arm. “Quite different. Such soft skin, so smooth.”

Then he dropped his hand and something sparked in his gaze, something deep and bonding, as if he saw beyond her uniform, through her flesh to her very soul. It thrilled and disturbed her because it spoke of a deeper connection, one she did not want.

Sex was one thing. If she must breed this alpha’s heir, then so be it. But she didn’t want to bond with him, or grow close. After her experience with the two-faced witch, Aurora didn’t trust anyone. Her mission to free Emily was her driving force behind surviving slavery. She would open her legs and let him do what men liked to do to women.

But trust him? Never. Fall for him and open her heart? Never.

Robert’s lips parted as he stared at her mouth. Her body tightened and the space between her legs felt tender, open with yearning.

“You’ve got the most amazing mouth,” he murmured.

She moistened her lips.

“Don’t do that. It makes me want to kiss you.”

“Is that such a bad thing?”

Shut up, Aurora. Gods, was this her talking? The woman who shunned all male contact, determined to stay the course and do whatever she must to save her sister?

“No. But we’re in a very public place, and if I kiss you, I’ll want more than a kiss. It could be quite dangerous.” He leaned close, his powerful cedar and sandalwood scent enveloping her.

Noise from the café’s chatter suddenly faded away, as if they were alone. She became aware of him as more than a wolf. He was suddenly all man, with the sexy bristles covering his strong jaw and chin, the penetrating green of his eyes, the sensual curve of his mouth. Kissing him would be more than flirting with danger.

It could lead to other things, and she must remain focused until the time came for him to bed her and conceive his longed-for heir.

But part of her longed for a kiss.
