He spotted her in club Nightshade, a beautiful goddess among the mortals, and from that moment on she was his everything. She tempted him. She intrigued him. He wanted her.

“So what do you have in mind for tonight?” Sabrina couldn’t believe that sultry purr of suggestion and invitation was her voice. Maybe he’d been thinking along the same lines as she and would suggest exactly the thing she’d just been fantasizing about; a girl could always hope. She grabbed her little black clutch purse and closed the door of her apartment and leaned back against it as Roman leaned close, caging her as he placed a hand against the door on either side of her head.
“Oh,” he murmured, trailing his lips along her jaw to her ear, “a little of this, perhaps a little of that.” His warm breath over her ear caused her skin to erupt into goose bumps, and she gave a little gasp as he caught her ear lobe in his teeth to give it a gentle tug. Her eyes drifted shut as his lips continued their foray down her neck, and she arched her head back to give him freer access. Her hands came up to clasp his head, and as his lips made a return foray up her neck, she was able to angle herself until his lips settled over hers, and she was once again drowning in the heat and taste of his kiss. She arched into his body with a murmur of supplication and when she felt him press into her, felt the heat of him branding her so deliciously, she groaned in need.
On and on the kiss went, spinning out of control. Tongues dueled, breaths gasped, hands wandered and touched; voices broke, and needs rose. Once again, Roman’s mouth traveled the long line of her neck, coming to rest on the wild pulse point of her throat. She felt the warm, wet heat of his tongue as it swept across the throbbing point, and just as she would have melted further into him, she felt him pause, almost as if he were trying to decide something important.
And just for a moment- for a brief, insane moment- she felt the impulse to urge him on, to tell him to bite, to taste. An odd, frightening, thrilling, and dark desire swept through her to feel his teeth against her skin, to feel his bite against her flesh, and she fell still as confusion crowded aside the lust she’d just luxuriated in.
Roman felt the change fall over Sabrina, and with a rueful chuckle against her throat and one last sweep of his tongue against her slowing pulse, he managed to take a step back from the warmth of her body. He hadn’t fallen ill, as he had expected to after taking that small taste of her blood earlier in the afternoon, and the temptation to indulge in a long, leisurely tasting of her pounded through him, making his canine teeth ache and grow longer in his mouth, even as his body longed to be buried deep inside her, driving them both to complete surrender as he did so. “Soon” he murmured against her ear, his breath making shivers of fire shoot through her blood as desire rekindled, “Very, very soon.”
Sabrina shivered at the promise in his husky whisper…
