An Excerpt from Electric Candle
by Elizabeth Noble
Once he had the door safely shut, Forge captured Blair’s mouth in another kiss, running his hands along Blair’s sides and murmuring, “I want you, all of you.” Nudging Blair’s head back, Forge dragged his tongue along Blair’s neck, over his jaw, and circled his ear until they were both panting.
“Your powers of seduction are—” Blair tugged at Forge’s shirt while he undid the buttons and pushed it open.
Forge smiled and nipped Blair’s neck. “I’ve had more practice.” He groaned when Blair’s tongue blazed a trail from his collarbone to his navel and back up.
“I have a surprise for you.” Blair kicked his shoes off.
Lifting his eyebrows, Forge asked, “Does it involve the spreader bar, ’cause I’ve never—”
Blair barked out a laugh. “Maybe next time, but I heard what Boggs said about the rope.” Blair indicated the table Forge kept his keys on.
Forge turned and looked. There were several lengths of rope next to a larger amount coiled loosely in a pile. “Huh. I… you really are a kinky little bastard.”
Blair smiled. “Still not a problem?”
“No. No, not at all. Get moving.” Forge took Blair’s hand again and spun him around so he was firmly in Forge’s grasp. Then he walked them to the bedroom, stopping only long enough to grab the rope.
Forge laid Blair on the bed and took his time removing Blair’s clothes, running his hands and mouth along Blair’s body. He was assaulted by images from Blair’s past: his loneliness since being turned, bits of his life since childhood. The information was stored in the back of Forge’s mind to deal with later.
Blair stretched his arms over his head and moaned. Forge knew his eyes glazed over to a solid blue, the heat and hunger coiling up from his groin almost unbearable. Slowly, he wound the rope around Blair’s wrists, securing them to the headboard. He dipped his head now and again as he slipped his tongue over the tender inside of Blair’s arms, making him gasp. Tightening the last knot, Forge pulled his shirt over his head and straddled Blair. Curling forward, he ran his tongue across Blair’s lips, slipping his tongue between them. Blair groaned into their kiss, shoving his hips up against Forge. When Forge couldn’t tolerate the confines of his jeans any longer, he moved away only long enough to shed the rest of his clothing, then swung his leg over Blair’s pelvis again. Maneuvering so their cocks slid against one another, Forge jerked in a sharp breath from the sheer delight that shot through him. Blair must have felt it too; his back arched, kiss broken. He threw his head back, exhaling a loud, long groan, body shuddering.
Leaning down so his hands were on the bed to either side of Blair, Forge licked along the line of his pecs, rocking his hips to feel the smooth, velvet soft skin and delightful sensation of their cocks brushing together. Blair’s heels dug into the bedding, and he tried pushing his hips up, but Forge’s weight held him down, leaving him squirming and thrashing.
Forge nipped Blair’s ear, then just under it, following the small, light nips with his tongue. His fangs slid down, and he grazed a line along the length of Blair’s neck from his jaw to his collarbone. Blair trembled, writhing and gasping Forge’s name.
“You understand that by doing this, we’ll be bound forever. Never anyone else for either of us.” Forge spoke the words between kisses to Blair’s nipples. “Are you sure this is what you want?” He had to be certain Blair really understood.
Blair gave him a jerky nod and gasped, “Yes. God… I’m sure. I want it. Shut up, and fuck me.”
Forge pulled Blair’s nipple into his mouth, sucking and brushing over it with his tongue. He scraped the tightening skin of Blair’s pecs with his fangs, pinching at first, then applying gentle pressure. Blair squirmed and moaned desperate pleas for more.
About Electric Candle
When a vampire finds his soul mate, the bond is forever. It’s love at first sight. Or is it?
Flint, Ohio, Homicide Detective Jonas Forge has been a vampire for nearly two hundred years. He’s fought wars, seen life go from the simple but hard colonial days to the modern, high-tech world. He’s evolved with the times, adapting with each new era, blending into each new life. The one constant is his best friend and lover, Declan.
Until Forge’s soul mate tumbles, literally, into his life.
Even though they’re not fated to be together forever, Forge and Declan are perfectly happy. Despite the pheromone attracting him to his soul mate, Forge isn’t thrilled with the guy, and the feeling seems mutual. While trying to adjust to his clumsy soul mate and equally awkward feelings, Forge is on the hunt for the serial killer who’s leaving a trail of bodies, and who witnesses can’t identify. But Forge better watch out. When his work collides with his love life, things really heat up.
