He's a shape-shifting wolf, she's a psychic and his other half. In order to catch a killer he has to rely on his Seeing Eye Mate.
"Get away from the window, my mate."
"You know, we really need to talk about that," she muttered, ignoring his softly issued command. "This is the weirdest thing. There are these two dogs-"
Her feet flew out from under her, making her tummy flip as she went down beneath Caelan's crushing weight. His arms wrapped around her, protecting her from what should have been a rough landing and she fought to catch her breath through her squished lungs.
"They're just dogs, Cael, it's fine," Eli announced.
Tieran blinked slowly, trying to refocus on her upside-down world. Eli was staring out the window and Caelan's chest vibrated along her arm with his fierce growling. He nuzzled her throat to a more open position and his sharp teeth rasped along her neck.
She jerked her head away, suddenly very aware of her surroundings. Who wouldn't be when their lover was planting more than a love bite at a very vulnerable spot?
"Ouch, get off me." She squirmed and tried to dislodge him but instead the action caused him to bite down harder. When she stilled, his jaws loosened. Her pulse beat a wild tattoo just below where his tongue lapped at her neck.
"Caelan!" Tieran wiggled again, he bit her again. Any harder and he'd puncture her jugular, she thought wildly. She submitted, giving him what he obviously wanted.
Submission? Bullshit. She'd turn into the tooth fairy before she submitted to him.
"Yet there you are, laying so still beneath your wolf-man, Tulla."
Ah hell. Her gramama was right.
Her lungs deflated on her huge sigh. Above them, Eli chuckled. Finally the razor sharp teeth were removed from her skin.
"The next time I tell you to fucking do something, by God, you better do it." Caelan's growl was laced with deadly menace in her ear, but she detected something else too. Nervousness? Anxiousness?
His tongue flicked out, lapping at the wound he'd inflicted, making her forget everything. He smelled so good. Like sweat and man and sex from their earlier romp. She looped an ankle around his calf and pulled his leg between hers, fitting his thigh snugly against her pussy. Finally! Maybe she could relieve some of the tension that throbbed at her clit.
"Mmm." She wrapped her free around the back of his scalp and angled her head to give him better access. Not that he needed it. He was doing just fine on his own.
His mouth moved to her earlobe and sucked it deep. She imagined it was her nipple he had embedded in that wet heat. She wanted his hands on her. Wanted to feel him tugging and pinching the sensitive beads. She lifted her hips and rubbed herself on his thigh. It wasn't enough! There were too many clothes in the way. She needed his fingers, his tongue, or better yet his cock, inside her, filling her. Not where it was, poking into her side.
"Man, you guys are hot."
"Oh shit." Tieran yanked herself free from Caelan and raised up on her elbows, her chest heaving with each breath. What in the hell was happening to her? She'd certainly liked having sex before, but until now, having it wasn't a requirement. Not a need that festered like an infected wound. She'd never craved it like she did with Caelan. And she'd never lost control in a way that everything around her disappeared.
Her cheeks flamed. Eli stood above them, watching as she and his brother went at it on her living room floor like two randy teenagers.
Caelan couldn't resist smiling as he rolled more firmly on his side and propped his head on his hand. He reached out and palmed the small cotton covered breast furthest from him, flicking at the nipple. If Eli hadn't interrupted-for Tieran's sake, 'cause it damned well wasn't for his-Caelan would have fucked her right here on the hardwood floor.
"Stop it." Tieran slapped at his hand. "Your brother is watching."
He shrugged. "So?"
Her eyes widened, her face drained of color, and she gulped. "Please don't tell me you guys do that.that.sharing stuff," she hissed.
Caelan snarled; Eli burst out laughing.
"Nobody but me will ever touch you," Caelan growled.
"Sweetheart, I'm not ready to die." Eli reached a hand down and pulled Caelan to his feet.
"What does that mean?"
"Wolves mate for life." Caelan winced at his gruff attitude, but goddamn, share her? Never. He helped her off the floor and guided her to the sofa. He needed to sit and have a drink after nearly having his heart ripped out. When she'd said dogs, he immediately assumed she wasn't looking at dogs, but wolves. Rogue wolves on the prowl and looking for another kill.
Eli scratched his head and sat down across from them. "What it really means is that as a Prime's mate, you are the alpha bitch. The only way I'll ever get to touch you, is for me to fight Caelan to the death and take over the pack. I'm really not all that intrigued by the prospect."
Tieran turned away from Eli. "Did he just call me a bitch? 'Cause I really don't think he's known me long enough to make that kind of presumption."
Caelan choked on his mouthful of beer, spitting it across the room. "Only you," he said when he could breathe again, "could make that kind of statement and totally ignore the part about him killing me." He threaded his fingers through hers and gathered her closer until she was tucked under his arm.
Seeing Eye Mate is a thrilling page-turner that will keep you glued to your chair with its edge-of-your seat suspense. From the opening until the spectacular, dramatic conclusion, there is never a dull moment within the superb mystery novel. Author Annmarie McKenna successfully weaves so many twists and turns within this storyline that even I at one time totally understood and agreed with Tieran's assessment of the killer's distinctiveness. Just when I thought I had figured out the plot, the author threw me for a loop. Ms. McKenna did such a magnificent job of withholding the identity of the killer until the very end. In addition to the great murder mystery, this novel also contains countless, blazing hot and sinfully naughty sexual encounters. Tieran and Caelan create an explosive volcanic reaction that simply melts the pages and left me breathless with enormous desire. Readers, you will without doubt need a fire extinguisher to put out your internal flame upon completion of this one. This is my first time experiencing the writings with Ms. McKenna and without a question will not be my last. I eagerly and patiently wait on her next exciting installment, which hopefully will involve Caelan's twin brother, Eli. I am proud to bestow Seeing Eye Mate as a Recommended Read!
