Adderley's Bride By Danita Minnis
Adrenaline pumping through her veins made her rigid. She held the tray out before her stiffly as she crept towards the bedroom door. The wall sconce at the center of the hall was still on. She could see clear across to the staircase landing but the opposite side of the hall leading to the other wing was in darkness. Stepping out of her room, she was hit with a blast of cold air that whistled around the empty corridors. She didn't have her slippers on and hopped from one foot to the next. It was forty degrees tonight and it felt like she was standing on an ice block. Belatedly, she realized she was making so much noise in her agitation that whoever was in the house could certainly hear her fumbling around. She returned to her room for the slippers. Back in the hall, she stood quietly listening. But it wasn't so much what she could hear as it was what she could feel. The hair on the back of her neck prickled. There was an expectant energy in the air, and she waited. ‘Beautiful Sofie…' The words wafted on the breeze, swept through the corridor and curled past her ear in an intimate caress. They were seductive, hypnotic and somehow calmed her fears. Lowering the tray, she closed her eyes and leaned toward the caress.

Dark Love Rising By Danita Minnis
Dropping his towel, he put on a pair of briefs. "I can't take you with me. I don't know where I'm going and I'll be traveling day and night. You'll need to find someplace to sleep during the day." He shook his head. He said all this as if he were some authority on vampirism and this was not the first creature he had ever encountered. Her husky laughter wafted over from where she stood in the doorway, sending another jolt of heat through his loins. "The sun does not burn one as old as I." "And how old is that?" He turned to feel her hardened nipples brushing his chest, and sucked in an involuntary breath. Her swift, soundless movements were unnerving. With fear and arousal warring in him, he stood completely still, eyeing her lips, which parted in a knowing smile. She'd meant to startle him. Glimpsing perfect, white teeth and, thankfully, no fangs on display, he tried to relax and convince himself that she wouldn't bite. She was just curious about him and he was now aroused beyond good sense.
