Marked Mate by Grace Goodwin
Elite Hunter Stark, Earth
What was the human doing here? No sane female would seek out these bastards.
Until she appeared, everything had been going to plan. Humans in a black vehicle had arrived to pick up some Quell at the odd window on the side of the building. I’d marked their vehicle so I could track them once I was done here.
Then? Chaos. Human weapons firing. The female was injured, severely.
The Siren operatives didn’t know I was here. Not yet. But I would take pleasure in ending their lives. Males of worth did not harm females of any species.
“Let her bleed out. Kill the animal. We can dump the bodies later.”
I moved closer without making a sound.
“No!” The female’s voice rang out.
I watched the Rogue 5 hybrid lift his ion blaster and point it toward the animal. I could not afford to intervene. Rokor, their leader, was dangerous. Deadly. I could not lose foc—
I felt the blast to my hip as if I were the one shot. The barrier in my mind shattered like broken glass and suddenly I was seeing through two sets of eyes.
She held up her small, blood-stained hand and begged for her pet’s life. “Don’t hurt her. Don’t. Please.”
I saw myself through her eyes, a shadow moving closer, Death himself. She was not afraid of dying, nor of me. She wanted—me. My cock twitched. Hard. Hot. My hand burned. She wanted to be in my arms. She ached for me.
She was mine.
The connection faded yet I clung to the fleeting warmth in my mind, desperate to feel it again. It had only been a few seconds, but I was out of time.
Her beast must have sensed the danger as well. The golden animal charged the male who held the ion blaster.
