"You think I don't want you?" He snarled, his bulky arms creating a cage around me, preventing me from moving an inch. His chest pressed tightly to mine and I could feel it move with his rabid breathing. "Darling, you could never be more wrong."
A cool hand worked it's way up to my neck and with gentle insistence, had me tilt it so he had a clear view of my throat. "Do you know how hard it is not to sink my fangs into you right here, right now and stake my claim?" He murmered, cool breath hitting the tender flesh as he ran his nose along the column of my throat, breathing in my scent. "Make sure no one takes what's mine."
Pet: The bonded human companion to a vampire and their main source of blood.
It's a title Eden Hemmings knows she shouldn't want. Vampires may look human and act human but they aren't. Possessing a dual nature and ungodly good looks, they are the definition of dangerous. Not to mention gifted with abilities humans could only imagine. Predators wrapped up in pretty packaging.
But with her brother away from home and stuck dealing with their over controlling mother, Eden just wants to escape. To be free to do her own thing. When a letter to the elusive Rigryce Academy comes in the mail, it has to be fate. Right?
Being a pet isn't that easy, however. They are a reflection of their master and as such, must have an extensive knowledge of politics and social etiquette. Anything less than perfect is unacceptable. A challenge for a girl that has trouble just looking her vampire classmates in the eyes.
She'll have to get over it if she wants to impress them in the hopes of getting chosen. Being weak won't work and the last thing she needs is to be sent home. Maybe the intimidating vampire she keeps finding will help?
