Excerpt from Captivated By The Winter King:Having no choice, Kate surrendered to the sensations that bombarded her. She lost track of where she ended and her lover began and instead existed in a state where everything was floating in a cloud of ecstasy. Distantly, she was aware that Ankou pulled her body up and that he held her in his arms.
He kept his pace steady as he tilted her head to the side and lowered his mouth to her neck. Sucking and nibbling over the delicate skin of her throat, he waited until the waves of her passion crested again before sinking his elongated fangs into her neck.
Screaming, Kate struggled in Ankou's arms, but he held her fast. Keeping her body still, he sucked from her neck. For every draw of blood he took, there was an answering pull of pleasure from her groin. It felt as though he were drinking from her clitoris instead of her throat.
Not wanting to weaken his mate, the Winter king allowed himself only a few swallows of her sweet blood. Withdrawing his fangs, he licked the last few drops from her skin and closed the twin wounds with his magic. With a shudder, he released the hold he had been keeping on his body and allowed his climax to wash over him. Completely spent, Kate was only dimly aware when her mate laid her body gently on the bed and drew the covers over them both. Snuggling into his warmth, she drifted in the sea of bliss he had created within her. As she slowly settled back into reality, she cracked her eyes open and looked up at him.
Concerned about his Anamchara's reaction to being fed upon, Ankou watched her every move. His own body felt electrified, like nothing he had felt since he had fallen from godhood. The rush her blood gave him made him feel more energized than he ever had as a mortal Fae. But at what cost to his mate? When he saw her peek at him from between her eyelashes, he held his breath to see if she would speak.
"Ankou?" she croaked.
"Yes, my love, I'm here. Do you want some water?"
Licking her lips, she shook her head weakly. "No. I want you to promise me something."
Her eyes flashed as she stared up at him. "Promise me that we'll do that again. Soon."
