Excerpt from Cravings by Brenda Huber
Kate O'Rourke extended her hand and turned a heart-stopping smile on him.
The floor slipped out from under his feet, and he fell head first into eyes the color of spring-fresh grass. Time spun out while every thought in his head deserted him.
Hers was a classical beauty, timeless and graceful. Pixie-like. Almost Faerie in quality. The top of her head barely came to his shoulders. Her hand was tiny in his. But she was all woman. The touch of her skin on his, warm silk, jolted through him like an electrical charge, nearly bringing him to his knees.
Awareness flickered in her stunning eyes.

She'd felt the connection too. The darker, primitive side of his nature began to take over as he stared deep into her unblinking eyes. Images began to form in his mind...images of hot, sweat-misted, naked bodies writhing and straining on a tangle of red silk sheets. Hungry mouths. Greedy hands. Racing pulses. Skin on skin. He blinked, perspiration beading on his brow.
Judging by her dazed expression, those images had been unintentionally transferred to her mind. The fact that she'd been so quick to intercept those images only attested to the fact that the attraction was mutual. That realization fueled his hunger...and his thirst.
Her blood would taste so sweet...
