By request, this week’s six picks up where I left off last week. Oh, and the hero isn’t a vampire. He’s something I’ve never seen featured as a hero in a romance novel. 😉
His fangs grazed my throat before he bit down, and my skin punctured on a crisp pop. I cried out as my eyes watered. This was no gentle claiming. This hurt. Rhys’s venom was fire in my veins, his poison a brand that threatened to render me to soot beneath his ravaging mouth.
When at last he withdrew, he pressed a chaste kiss to the stinging wound.

Wow! I love “venom was fire in my veins.” Great six! I wonder what he is. The only thing I thought was a snake.
Rhys isn’t a snake. 🙂 I’ve actually read a really good snake shifter hero–Joey in Erica Hayes’s Poison Kissed.
