Sensual Sunday is brought to you today by Seventh Circle, which is the seventh book in my popular Vampires Realm romance series. Sensual Sunday’s always feature a hot excerpt from one of my paranormal romance books. Read on for this Sunday’s sensual snippet…
She pushed Lincoln back and looked into his eyes. A flicker of confusion danced in their depths. Her hand cupped his cheek and her eyebrows furrowed. It had taken a vampire to make her feel alive and understand herself. Lincoln had never lied to her about what she was. He’d accepted her, had leant his strength to her and had faith in her.
She could feel all the love in him, raw and needy, weakening him but strengthening him at the same time. They weren’t alone anymore. They had each other.
Her hand slid around the back of his neck as he picked her up. Their eyes remained locked and she absorbed the feelings in his. No man had ever looked at her like that, ever understood who she was inside. Mark had never seen her as Lincoln had—weak, vulnerable, scared. Only with Lincoln had she opened up her heart.
He placed her down on the bed and leaned over her, his lips playing against her throat. Her eyes closed and she sighed as she leaned her head backwards into the pillow. This was what she wanted and she’d wanted it from the moment she’d set eyes on him.
Since then, she hadn’t been able to take her eyes off him.
A smile wound its way across her lips when she realised he was breathing. The fast pants matched hers, cutting the silence. Her fingers pushed into his hair and she held his mouth against her neck, relishing the way each kiss made a spark bolt through her. She wasn’t in any danger but it thrilled her all the same.
His lips found hers and chased away all sane thought. She felt it drift away and felt the rise in her desire replace it, compelling her to kiss him back. She did, her tongue tracing the gap between his lips and his teeth beyond them. He tasted metallic. Her tongue ran along his teeth and she realised they were still sharp. She probed the tip of one fang and squeaked when it suddenly changed, becoming blunt. He really didn’t want to hurt her. He didn’t want to lose control.
So small a word but with such importance.
Neither of them wanted to lose it.
Both of them were scared of this.
He rolled onto his back, taking her with him. She found herself straddling his hips, their groins against each other. Her heart sped, hammering against her chest as nerves threatened to consume her.
His fingers skimmed her stomach just below the hem of her cream baby doll t-shirt. She bit her lip, watching his hands catch the material and begin to raise it. Her arms went above her head, assisting him, before she’d even thought about what she was doing. He tossed her t-shirt to one side.
She swallowed and felt like covering herself when his gaze raked over her, dark with hunger.

Born with powers similar to a vampire’s, Lilith has spent her life hunting demons for Section Seven. On the same night as she watches a vampire kill her best friend, she is faced with her worst nightmare—a client who is not only attractive but a vampire.
Lincoln is a powerful pureblood with a problem. He’s caught up in a prophecy and has little time left to unravel the mystery of the contract between his lord and the Devil before he dies. When witches foretell that a vampire hunter will save his life, he’s prepared to work with his most hated enemy, but he isn’t prepared for the forbidden desire he feels when he meets her.
Their mutual attraction becomes difficult to deny as they work together but when Lincoln reveals the truth about her powers, will Lilith find the strength to embrace a side of herself that she wished didn’t exist? And when they discover Lilith’s role in the prophecy, how far will Lincoln go to save her?
Dark, sensual and fast-paced, Seventh Circle is a story of forbidden love so strong that it will save the world.
