“What do you need? God, you’re burning up.” He’d just noticed the sweat beading all over her body. “Hold on, I’ll get you some water.”

“No!” She tried to grab him back, but he’d already moved off the bed.

When he came back, she was struggling to sit up, her arms shaky as she pushed herself up. “Jay?” she said, her voice husky.

“I’m here. Here, drink this first.”

She gulped it all down before letting out a sigh of relief. “Thank you.”

“What’s going on, baby?”

“I don’t know.” She blinked. “The urge is a lot worse than usual. I can’t seem to get away from it. It never stops. She never stops.”

“I see.” She sure looked a lot worse than he’d expected. Her eyes were feverish, her scent stronger than ever before. She was in heat, and she was in pain.
Poor darlin’
. “Are you sure you want me to help, Alexa?” He didn’t want to leave, but he also knew he had to give her an out. She’d shot him down the day before, after all, and as the Alpha’s son, he sure as hell wasn’t used to being told no. Come to think of it, no lioness had ever told him no before.

“Please?” She sounded hesitant, but her eyes were fixed on him. “Make it go away. Please.” Her hand shot out and this time, hit pay dirt on the first touch.

Jay hissed as her fingers brushed against his denim-clad erection. “I’ll stay, but Alexa, you need to follow my orders. Do you hear?”

“Whatever you want.” She leaned down to nuzzle his neck. “I’ll do whatever you want, Jay. Please.”

His cock twitched at her words, and just like that, he knew he was a goner.





Chapter Two



Alexa was going out of her mind.

Her skin felt so tight, she wondered for a second whether it wouldn’t crack and burst open. That sure would be a sight to see!

“Relax, honey. I’ll make you feel better.”

“Hurry!” she snapped back, her control slipping. Her lioness had been appeased when she’d scented the male in the room, but the urge was still there, and it was growing by the minute.

“Okay, okay. Let’s get you off first, and we’ll go back to basics the second time around.”

She heard his voice but only realized what he’d meant by that when he forced her thighs wide open…only to slide in between them, head first. “Oh!” She looked down at his hair, so dark amidst her pale, pale skin. “Jay?”

“Shh,” he said, his thumbs already parting her folds.

Her brain shorted out. She let herself fall onto her back and decided to let him do his job. “Now!”

He chuckled, the sound echoing loudly inside the room. “Impatient much, darlin’?”

She would have told him off if she’d been herself. Turns out she didn’t even need to as his mouth found her clit only seconds later. Her hips bucked up, his right arm suddenly there to hold her down. His tongue flicked her pussy, from her clit to her entrance, back and forth. She grabbed his hair and never let go.

She’d been so aroused that it didn’t take long for her to feel the pleasure build up. And up. Until her voice broke into an unrelenting litany of moans. Until her knees locked around his head, making it impossible for him to move. She needed to come, damn it! When one of his fingers slid into her, it lit her up from the inside out. Her back arched as her climax hit, her moans turning into screams. When she finally let go of him, it was because she no longer had the energy required to, well, do anything. Her legs flopped back down onto the disturbed sheet, her eyes blinking at the ceiling as if she couldn’t quite decide what to do next.

“Okay?” he asked as he moved up the mattress, his gaze finding hers.


“Let me know when it hits again so we can move to part two.”

He lied down beside her and drew her against him. His clothes were harsh against her sensitized skin, making her break out into goose bumps. “Part two?” she heard herself ask.

Holding himself up on his elbow, he smiled down at her. “Part two is when I get naked, and we have even more fun.”


“Sounds okay?”

“Sure,” she answered almost reflexively. Probably because something was going on inside her. Something she couldn’t quite put her finger on. She frowned, wondering what the heck her lioness was doing now. She’d been purring only moments ago, happy to have such a nice male specimen close to her. Now what? “Shit!” she gasped when her walls started to pulse. “Not again!”

“Alexa?” Jay leaned over her. “What’s wrong, baby?”

She opened her mouth to answer, but the urge was so strong, she couldn’t find her words. She was staring at him when she saw it hit him. His eyes turned to gold, his lion watching her, assessing her. Alexa held herself still, not wanting to draw his attention to her. Well, her lioness had already done that, but if he could find her lacking, that’d be good.

the lioness roared inside her.
I want him. I need him. Take him!

Almost as if she no longer controlled her body, she watched her own hands rise in front of her and begin to undress him. Her fingers, usually so clumsy in similar circumstances, deftly opened his shirt and drew it down his arms. Taut biceps, strong shoulders, tanned skin. It was all revealed thanks to her greedy lioness. Alexa looked on as she pushed him down, straddling his thighs in order to pop his pants open. With his cock clearly delineated by his thin cotton boxer shorts, he looked good enough to eat.

She guessed she had said that one out loud, because his hands soon found the back of her head. He pushed her down his body until her mouth was only inches from his erection. Fingers drew the boxers down, his cock popping out and almost hitting her chin. She watched, quietly amazed, as a single pearl of semen made its way down the wide length. Unable to stop herself, she lowered her head even more and licked it in one slow gulp.

He moaned above her, his hands fisting into her hair, forcing her to take even more of him inside her mouth. “That’s it, baby. Take it all in. Oh yeah, suck me, Alexa.”

Tastes good. Eat him.

The lioness’ thoughts made her scramble to get back into control. She couldn’t,
hurt him! He’d come to her rescue even though they didn’t know each other, had only—and very briefly at that—met the day before. Or was it the day before that? God, she had no idea how long she’d been in her apartment fighting the mating urge, driving herself crazy along the way. She drew back, pursing her lips to make it a tighter fit, earning herself a happy growl.

“God, you’re good at this.” His hands relaxed in her hair, as if he’d realized he could trust her.

Damn, he is so wrong
, she told herself even as she continued pleasuring him. Her fingers found his sac, weighing it and teasing it and caressing it with light touches. He seemed to like that even more.

“Fuck, you’re gonna make me come!”

She looked up then, frowning. Wasn’t that the point? She wasn’t too sure whether he saw her confused face or heard her on a deeper level, but he pulled her away from her a moment later. She licked her lips, her jaw feeling sore. “Why did you stop me?”

“Time to get to part three.” Before she could question him again, he contracted his abs and sat up, his face suddenly eerily close to hers. “What d’ya say?”

His lips brushed hers. It was a sweet kiss, so sweet after what they’d done, it sent her thoughts spinning. It didn’t take much more for her lioness to raise her head and fight for control once again.


With all that animal lust pouring into their bodies, the kiss turned lethal fast. Tongues clashing, teeth biting, fingers scraping. It became a duel no one could be the victor of.








Chapter Three



“More. More!” Alexa rocked her hips, trying to get him to speed up his movements. “Fuck me, damn it!” She banged on his shoulders with her fists.

He reared back and grabbed her hands in his, forcing her arms over her head. His weight bore down on her, pressing her even more into the mattress. She could have complained, but she didn’t have the energy left. She just wanted to come so this would end.

“Look at me, Alexa.” Jay’s voice flitted over her. “Please, baby, look at me.”

She opened eyes she couldn’t even remember closing and blinked. He looked somber. Why? He was inside her. She could feel his cock pulse; she knew he wanted this. The mating scent was all around them, her lioness purring for more, wanting to push him. And push him. And push him.


She blinked once more. “Ye-yes?” She licked her lips, finding them so dry, they ached a little.

“Stay with me, darlin’. If you don’t focus on me, what we’re doing will be for nothing.”

“Just fuck me, Jay. Please. I need to come.”

“I know, baby, I know. Try to ignore her, okay? Focus on me. You feel this?” he asked just before sliding nearly out of her.

She locked her inner muscles around him, terrified he would slip out of her and leave her wanting. “No!”

“Shh. I won’t stop. Don’t worry. Just feel…”

What the hell was he going on about? The thought slashed through her brain, but then he did it again, forcing her to concentrate on the movements of his body. On the way her breasts brushed his chest at every thrust. Or how the head of his cock pressed against that one spot inside her that made her light up. “Oh.”

“That’s right, sweetheart. You’re doing great.”

She shivered at the affection lacing his words.
Such a perfect mate
, the lioness purred, but she quickly shut her up. No, he wasn’t her mate and never would be. She was a mixie. He was a pure. The two just weren’t compatible.

But feel how compatible you are…

“Shut up!”


She looked up and spotted the indecision in his eyes. “Sorry. I was talking to her, not you. She…”

“It’s okay.” He smiled, as if trying to reassure her.

* * * *

It wasn’t getting any better, Jay acknowledged inwardly, even as he picked up speed. They’d been making love for hours. In every position he could think of. With every caress he could invent. On every damn inch of her lush body. And yet, she was still in pain, her eyes too bright as she looked up at him and begged for more.

Something was wrong. He could feel it. His lion felt it too and paced anxiously inside him. For the first time ever, he couldn’t help one of his kind. It was inconceivable. Unacceptable even, that he, son and successor of the Pride’s Alpha, couldn’t get her mating urges under control. After all, he’d been doing it ever since he’d hit puberty. God, he could still remember the first time he’d smelt the mating call, the first time his body had reacted to that pheromone-laced scent. He’d grown hard, the show of virility instantly praised by his father and various uncles. He’d gone to the woman in heat and had offered his services, her eyes widening with pleasure at the thought of being his first. She’d taught him well too, and since then he’d always loved that time of the year. Except now…

He stared down at the woman who’d called for his help, only a few hours after rejecting him, walking away without even a backward glance. He’d been intrigued, still was for that matter, wondering which Pride she belonged to, wondering whether she was single or not. She was so his type, too. Round in all the right places, golden hair cascading down her back, light eyes that sparkled. She was perfect… If only he could help her.

“More!” Her groan rang above his head.

He realized he hadn’t been paying attention to her and swore. Letting go of her hands, he pushed on his knees and, still embedded within her, stilled long enough to caress her. She jerked up the second his thumb pressed against the side of her clit. “Like that?” he asked, his voice low, his focus once more all on her.

“Jay!” she gasped.

“Do you like that, Alexa?” He let the Alpha inside him come to the forefront, the tone of his voice becoming a lot harsher. “Answer me. Do you like me fucking you like this? Do you like having my cock so hard inside you? My fingers on your pussy?”

Her gaze locked with his. “Yes. Oh yes. Please.”

He blinked. He could swear he’d seen her lioness in her eyes. But that wasn’t possible! If what she’d told him was true, if she was really a mixie and couldn’t shift—something she wouldn’t have any control over with the mating urge so bad—then he shouldn’t be able to see the animal in her.

She bucked under him, his cock pressing against her womb, her cries sharpening. He pushed the thoughts away and worked on getting her to climax once more, hoping that one would do the trick. Doubt niggled at him, however.

* * * *

Help her.

Jay had been drowsing, his arm around her waist, holding her to him in case she woke up while he was still asleep. He didn’t want her to be alone, not even for a second. “Alexa? You awake, baby?” He leaned above her and frowned when he noticed her closed eyes. “Baby?”
