Thad moved slowly. For as much as he wanted her to tell him what was going on, the need to touch and be touched by her was driving him over the edge. Her scent, too, one he was sure didn’t come from a bottle or from soap. This time when he pulled her to him he didn’t let her pull back.
“I want to taste you. Then I want to take you upstairs and fuck you. What better way to spend a hazy afternoon than getting sweaty between the sheets.” She pushed at his chest, but he didn’t let her go. “If I’m barking up the wrong tree, Nurse Ericks—”
“I don’t bark, Mr. Galloway, I howl. And I’d appreciate it if you’d simply back the fuck up. I don’t want your attention or your speculations on what I should do with my spare time.” When she moved to walk away from him, he reached for her arm. He wasn’t used to people not doing what he wanted and she...intrigued him. But when he touched her, he hadn’t counted on her strength and found himself pinned against the wall, dangling a foot from the floor with a hand around his throat holding him there.
Thad Galloway is a self-made billionaire. He made his fortune the old fashioned way―he earned it. When Thad speaks people jump and don’t argue, so he’s accustomed to getting what he wants. When a sassy nurse barks orders at him he is impressed that she stands up to him. He’s a Dom and wants Diamond to submit in the worst way.
Diamond Erickson is the best nurse the small hospital has. She is just coming off three straight doubles and is looking forward to three days off when she let the doctor con her into working another half shift. She is beyond tired and has no patience for a bossy overbearing jerk who is going to hurt himself if he doesn’t do as he’s told. She gets a taste of his blood and realizes the handsome jerk is her mate. The last thing she wants is a mate―especially one into inflicting sexual pain…
Thad soon learns that the world isn’t what he thought it was. He’s horrified to find out that Diamond isn’t human at all, she’s a wolf, and half his staff is one form of supernatural or another.
He can bask in self-denial or pursue the best woman to ever walk into his life…
Thad and Diamond are capable of a deep passionate love. Can they get past their differences to find out? Will Diamond warm up to Thad’s games? Find out in the second installment of the Rare Gems Series―Diamond.
