fear of insanity.

learning to write and read more, one step at a time. Soon, she’ll
have stories published in every sub-genre of erotic romance – well
that’s her aim anyway

Here you are my friend.
Marie is a secondary
character in the story First Bite, First Glance. She demanded her
own happily ever after and I had to write it. But if you would like
to read the story of how Lina, Benedict and Antony fell in love, it
can be found in Edible Delights Vol. 3.
Marie lifted her hand and
knocked on the door to Lina’s private room. The men had started to
arrive and the women needed Lina there to make sure everyone
followed the rules. She tried the handle and realized it wasn’t
locked, so she took a deep breath and opened the door reluctantly,
whispering down the dark stairway.

There was a time when

Despite her occupation,

free to come and speak to me.”
Four of the men moved
immediately to one woman, who smiled and left with them.
Marie smiled and circled
the room. A high-pitched cry sounded from a room down the hall and
she jerked her head towards Mason, their guard. He nodded and set
off at a run.
Marie sighed and went to
stand at head of the room. An occupational hazard unfortunately.
Some men were rough, more than rough. Some women could handle a
little bit more than others. The reason they’d had three new girls
start with them in the past month.
Well, if it
isn’t the Mistress’ favourite little lady.” The nasty voice and
threatening tone could only belong to one man. Lord
Marie clenched her fists
at her sides, remembering far too well the last time this man had
been in the brothel. He’d found her alone in her room and tried to
force himself on her. Only Lina’s speed and strength had saved

He leered at her, his
eyes on her covered body making her shudder with

Lina isn’t here, is she?”
Marie trembled with fear
but bit down on her lip to stop any whimpering sounds from
escaping. The older, clearly intoxicated man stepped closer and
grabbed at her arm.
He squeezed tightly and
she gasped as he hauled her against his body.

struggled against his arms. He held her harder.
Her heart thumped
erratically, her instincts screaming at her to run, but she

Marie cried out, her fear
of finally being taken against her will making her legs shake so
she dropped harder against her captor. He moaned and pressed his
hardened cock against her. The already dim light within the parlour
faded as Marie swooned with fear.
Her abuser relaxed his
grip on her arms and turned towards the voice. Marie looked up at
her saviour, a man with long flowing white hair and calm blue eyes.
Lord Sommerton released her so quickly she fell forward.
The new man, now in
control of the situation, placed an arm around her and tucked her
in beside him.
He stiffened as she
touched his side. She looked up to see long, white fangs extending
down across his bottom lip.
Like Lina and Antony, of
course! She needed to protect him from discovery.
She stepped a little away
from him, but his hand stayed on her waist. The pressure of his
touch gave her the confidence to do what needed to be done. She
lifted her arm and pointed to the front door, feeling strong and
If you leave
now, I won’t tell Madame Lina you were here.”
Lord Sommerton glared at
her for a moment then slunk away. Marie turned to the vampire,
tears of gratitude springing to her eyes as curiosity stirred her
mind. He had turned his head away whilst she dealt with the other
man, but when he looked back at her, his fangs were still

The vampire assessed her,
his deep blue eyes flickering over her face while she focused on
the white gleam of his fangs.
Marie swallowed and
bobbed a curtsey in acceptance.
Yes, Sir. I
need to wait for Lina to arrive and then I can take you to my

rose to her cheeks again. She should be over such silly responses,
but born a lady, always a lady. Or so it would seem.

The vampire closed his
ancient eyes and spoke Lina’s name.
Not two moments later,
Lina walked into the room, her warm brown hair dishevelled. Her
gown was not yet laced up, but she was there.

The vampire tilted his
head towards Marie but didn’t apologise for disturbing Lina. Maker?
He was Lina’s maker?
I want her
and she said you must come first.”
Shock didn’t cover the
look on Lina’s face. She looked between Marie and the old
amenable to this?”
Marie nodded. Lina was
very protective of her which she would always be very grateful for.
Lina had taken her in when she was thrown out of her home and would
otherwise have starved on the streets. Her mistress never gave her
to anyone whom she believed to be dangerous.
However, as she gazed
upon the vampire who had protected her tonight, lust and gratitude
beat through her. Lina’s eyes widened but she smiled as she began
to tidy her appearance.
This was it. She would go
with him. Marie indicated the stairs and turned to walk that way.
“This way please, Sir.”
Her voice trembled as she
spoke and her breath hitched in her throat. She picked up her
skirts, her heart beating harder and faster as she took each step
up to the first floor.
She pushed open the door
to her bedroom, moved close to the bed and turned back to the
entrance. The vampire followed her into the room and closed the
door. He sat, fully clothed, on the chair against the

A shiver vibrated down
Marie’s spine at the sound of his voice. She loosened her dress and
smiled at him. An action she had done so many time before, yet
tonight felt special.
Her body had heated in a
way foreign to her, responding to her need to please the man in
front of her. The place between her legs ached, throbbing with
want. She glanced across at the bottle of oil next to her bed that
kept her from being damaged. Perhaps this would be the only night
she would not have to use it? Marie dropped her dress and stood in
her chemise and bloomers.

Sil smiled at her, his
face crinkling and his eyes alight with pleasure while he looked at
her. His fangs had retracted and he looked to the world like any
have no wish to force sex on you but I would like to feed on you,
if you will allow me.”
Marie’s belly fluttered.
Lina and Benedict’s relationship intrigued her. She knew Lina fed
on Benedict, and he often floated about the house, looking like he
was on a constant blissful high. That look had inspired a yearning
in Marie, and now she had the chance to experience it
Yes, Sil, I
would love that. How would you like me?”

as she moved closer, his fangs extending again in a way that made
Marie hurry. She felt special that he had chosen her and she didn’t
want him changing his mind.
She lifted her legs and
slowly straddled him, keeping her pelvis away from his and resting
her hands on his cool, hard chest.
Marie wasn’t sure which
he’d prefer, so decided to ask. “Wrist or neck Sil?”
Sil wrapped his strong
hands around her hips and pulled her closer. She gasped and watched
his full lips as he moved closer and tilted his head.
His calm voice and slow movements were at odds
with the hardness swelling between her legs. He leaned closer and
Marie pressed her breasts against his chest, exposing her

causing Marie’s nipples to peak beneath her dress. She couldn’t

Sil broke off from her

healing and sweet.
