After refusing the proposal of a jealous and vengeful god Aretha, goddess of soul is banished to Earth. Cursed with never being able to be touched by a male, human or otherwise. And if that's not enough she's condemned to living as a Pegasus by day, human by night. In order to survive she must fight off human hunters seeking to destroy her. One night she crosses paths with one of the damned and evil.
Could he be her savior, or will he lead her into making a decision that will cost her what little she had left?
Alaois, birth born vampire, existing in the hidden caverns off the Seas of Marmara encounters a female the likes of which his kind rarely come in contact. The female triggers something inside he’d never thought possible, thus he could not stay away from her. Discovering she was being hunted by human hunters, he risks everything to save her.
Would he be in time or would his actions cost both their lives?
Bolting past thick green branches and tree trunks at a vampire’s supernatural speed, Alaois swatted leaves and stems with his hands, determined on clearing the obstructions which kept him from pursuing the female’s scent. Hearing something off in the distance, he stopped and targeted its location. It was near. Without warning, a twig snapped, causing him to whip around in a flash of a second. His throat closed, ears instantly pounded as if any second blood would burst from within. There she stood before him. MINE!
Dressed in a flowing platinum gown, she was an exquisite creature. Her long strands of pale hair, sparkled like diamonds, and fell in fluid waves well past her waistline. Some were even teased by winds from the approaching storm causing them to cover her succulent breasts. Alaois growled at the locks disrespectful placement shielding all of her perky mounds of flesh straining against the thin fabric of clothing. His hands suddenly craved to reach out, remove all that hid the beauty underneath and cup within his palms that which he achingly desired. With a lustful gaze, his drifted to meet hers and Holy Fuck, how crystal clear her eyes were. Their bodies froze as they stared at one another. Trying to find his voice, all while, his mind screamed inside his head.
MINE…Take her…she is yours…why do you hesitate? Then his cock, damn it to hell, throbbed violently against the inside of his jeans from being concealed. It pleaded to be released from its confinement and introduced to her core and as quickly as possible. Swallowing hard, Alaois tried to regain his self-control and find some kind of inner gallantry, being rusty on the treatment of a beautiful female who shockingly provoked something tenderer from within. A feeling unusual and most unexpected, for no female in his lifetime had affected him in such a way.
WTF? Moving his gaze toward the drug scent, he spotted the reddish liquid of his one true survival dripping down the inside of the females arm and his whole body quivered. The bloodlust rose within him to take what flat out invited him over into temptation. Grinding his teeth, Alaois had to hold his breath, for any moment his body and mouth could easily seize upon this female prey, fully consuming that which was now being graciously offered before him. While this female would be nothing but food to others, his instincts told him so, yet all his senses shouted Mine. Protect!
An internal battle to hold himself back raged, fearing he would hurt her; Alaois collapsed on his knees at her feet. He brought his hands up covering his face, shielding his exposed fangs and barked out for her to run. Perceiving her feet moving closer toward his frame, he did the only thing he could do. Alaois removed his hands from his face, glared up at her locking his pained eyes with her innocent ones and bared his fangs shouting out in a hiss of hunger. “I. SAID. RUN!”
