Betrothed to a Prince, In Love With My Bodyguard
“You…” He can barely speak. “You smell…”
I know what he smells. I take a step toward him, eyes bright. “Yes?” I ask coyly.
I take another step. “Yes?”
He suddenly explodes, closing the gap beeen us in half a second and pressing me agat the wall behind me so aggressively, my breath catches in my throat. He p my arms agat the wall on either side of me and presses himself into me, digging his hardened bulge agat me with a motion that nearly sends my legs buckling out from under me in dazed pleasure.
His lips find my neck, and for an tant, I think he means to mark me. I should think about what it would mean for my future, what it would mean for my pack, but in that moment, I don’t care. I want him to mark me. I want to be his, and I want him to be mine.
