This week's snog comes from an upcoming release, Until the Night. I really enjoy this story and it's a first for me. It's a menage with four partners. Talk about a lot of body parts! I hope you enjoy this taste of the story as much as I enjoyed writing the entire tale. Grin.
“Don’t be.” He stepped into her apartment and closed the door. “You’re paler than normal.” Kendall put both hands up. “I know. Vampires are pale. But this isn’t like you.” He curled his fingers under her chin. “What can I do?”
Her heart hammered. What could he do? Get naked and take her on the couch, then offer his neck, that’s what he could do. Help her slake her need for sustenance and sex then confess he liked her for more than a friend.

“I see that. When did you sleep last?”
“Or fed, either.”
“It’s been a while.”
“Then I’ve got just what you need—a hot and hunky male to share your bed.” His eyebrows bobbed. “Like someone tall, blond and handsome who has lots of blood he’s willing to part with in the name of rescue.”
She laughed despite her tears. “Don’t tell me you’re applying. That’s one of the most horrible come-on lines I’ve heard.”
Kendall cupped her jaw in both hands. Hunger shone amongst the green and blue flecks in his eyes. He worked the muscle in his jaw and the light caught the subtle colour changes of brown and gold in the scruff on his cheeks. She gulped to catch the breath she didn’t need. No heartbeat meant oxygen didn’t help her body like it had when she’d been alive. God, she wanted to be amongst the living and for things would be normal again.
“Would you rather I be blunt?” He kissed the tip of her nose. “I want you. I don’t care if you’re a vampire or if you have those two guys who hang out over here. You infiltrate my thoughts and make me think about you when you’re not in the same room.”
