I don’t usually do sexy snippet Sunday, mostly because I don’t have regular releases. But I actually have a release on the 16th. I’m still in a daze to be honest.
Henri sat next to the unconscious body of the pale cleaner and carefully sat her up, removing her top to make it easier to check out the cuts. “She was attacked by a shifter, we need to stop the bleeding.” A noise of pain escaped his girl as the top stuck to the drying blood. Jo ran out of the room as Tessa’s eyes flicked open. “It’s okay, you’re going to be okay.” He brushed stray strands of hair away from her eyes. Something tugged at the centre of his chest, it didn’t have words, at least none he understood. It wasn’t the time or place to wonder why, not with her bleeding in his arms.
“Where am I?”
“At mine. I’ve got someone here who can help.”
She frowned. “I’m in your bed? Why didn’t you take me to a hospital?”
“This was closer,” he lied. If she was infected with the shifter virus, a human hospital wouldn’t help her. Shifter blood was infectious and as soon as they realised she was healing at a faster rate than normal, they would call people in to collect her. Then she would vanish. He reached out and cupped her cheek. She shivered against him. “She’s a nurse, Tessa, and I trust her to help you.”
