"E-excuse me?"<br /><br />His teeth sank into her lower lip, making her yelp. "Focus."<br /><br /><i>On what? The demon club? The humans dying downstairs? The fact that you're a f*cking vampire? Where should I begin?</i><br /><br />He sighed, his forehead falling to hers. "Astasiya, we have very little time to sort this before the Conclave. I need you to work with me. Both our lives depend on it. What are you wearing?"<br /><br />She cleared her throat, her hold on his neck tightening as if needing his support to respond. And maybe she did. This was all a lot to take in. "A, uh, thong," she managed to say. "And a strapless bra." Both black and lacy, but she didn't add that part.<br /><br />One of his hands drifted from her hair to her waist, then down to her ass. His palm flattened and forced her to arch up into him. A breath hitched in her throat at the feel of his growing arousal.<br /><br /><i>He's turned on... here... now?</i><br /><br />She trembled, the heat of his body seeping into her cool skin, warming her blood. They were standing rather close. And he smelled amazing, as always.<br /><br />Anywhere else, in the dark, she'd have kissed him.<br /><br />But here...<br /><br />"The dress will have to stay, then," he said, the disappointment evident in his voice.<br /><br />She frowned. "What's wrong with my dress?" It hit her midthigh and clung to her curves. She looked good in it.<br />He ignored her, his mouth brushing hers in a chaste kiss as his hips pressed firmly into hers.<br /><br />Definitely aroused.<br /><br />"You're going to see things tonight that will make you want to scream, but you must remain calm and quiet. Mortals who overreact die, and they die badly."
