Every time she closes her eyes he’s there…waiting for her.
Brandi Connelly is too embarrassed to tell anyone about the strange dreams she’s having. Partly because she’s afraid they will think she’s crazy…mostly because the things that go on while she’s sleeping make her blush. As the nightly visions become all too real she’s afraid they’re not dreams at all. If that’s true, then she’s been having some wild nights with one very hot demon doing things she never thought she would.
Draken Barrand is determined to claim his mate. There’s just one problem – he’s trapped behind the walls of a mental institution. The only way he can reach her is through her dreams, where he claims her and marks her as his own. But his mate’s life is threatened when the Leader of his Legion finds out about his unlawful mating.
Will Drake be able to break free of his cell in time to save his woman? If he does will she finally accept him as the man of her dreams and her reality?
“Do you ever sleep?”
His smile grew bigger at her question. “Yes, I do sleep.”
“During the day?”
“Why?” She was being nosy but she wanted to know more about him.
“So I can have more time with you…at night.”
His answer shocked her. But hadn’t she suspected that all along. Smile gone, he stared at her like she was the only woman on earth. It was the kind of stare she saw on movies right before the hero kissed his damsel. There would no kissing between her and Draken. That thought didn’t distress her a bit… well maybe it did, just a little.
“Why would you want more time with me? She asked. “And why do you always stare at me like that?”
“You’ve asked two questions. Which one would you like for me to answer?”
Was he serious? Brandi ran her hands through her tangled curls. Why must he be so difficult? “Answer the second one, please.”
“I don’t recall the second question.”
“Yes you do. I just asked it.”
He grinned and Brandi realized he was only joking. She smiled back at him unable to resist his subtle charm. “You like upsetting me, don’t you?”
His grin disappeared. “Have I done so, upset you? That was never my intention.”
“No, no. You haven’t really upset me. Not this time. It’s just an expression I use.”
“So you are not upset with me?”
“No, I’m not.”
“Good,” his devilish grinned returned and her heart did a somersault. This conversation was getting off track.
“Since your old age prevents you from remembering the question, I will ask you again. Why do you stare at me like that – all of the time?”
“Like that. The way you’re staring at me now, why do you do that?” She needed to know. He didn’t answer right away. He just stood there, continuing to stare at her; continuing to cause her to wonder how it would feel to wrap her arms around his broad shoulders and press her body closer to his. Stop thinking like that Brandi. She had no right to fantasize over a patient. There had to be some kind of law against that.
Could she go to jail if anyone found out? She could definitely get fired if word got out that she often had inappropriate thoughts about a patient. But how could she not? Look at him. He was a tall glass of ‘damn I wish I could spend a couple of nights in your arms.’ Brandi sighed.
“Why are you staring at me like that?”
His question snapped her back to reality. “T-this is how I always stare at you. Like you’re my patient and like I’m your ward clerk.” Brandi swallowed nervously. She knew exactly how she’d been staring at him, like she wanted to touch him…taste him. Get it together Brandi. You can only ogle your patient from afar.
“You don’t lie well,” he told her. “So why do you choose to do so?”
“I’m not lying.” How was he able to see right through her? “I have to get back to work.”
“Don’t you want me to answer your question?”
“Not really.” She’d already been down here too long. Brandi walked over to the door and gripped the door knob.
“I stare at you because you’re beautiful.”
She paused, her hand still wrapped around the handle in a death grip. He couldn’t have possibly said what she thought he did.
“Sometimes your beauty overwhelms me and I can’t force my eyes away from your face and form. That is why I stare at you like that, because you captivate me.”
She’d heard him correctly. Wow! How was she supposed to respond to that? What was she supposed to say? Thanks, oh and um, I stare at you for the very same reason. She couldn’t say that to her patient. There was nothing for her to say? Everything that she wished she could say was inappropriate. This whole conversation was inappropriate. Brandi twisted the door knob.
“Please don’t go yet,” he whispered.
The fact that she didn’t want to go was the reason why Brandi opened the door and ran from his cell. The words he’d uttered replayed themselves over and over in her head as she walked swiftly to her desk.
He thought she was beautiful.
She tried to keep her expression stoic, not wanting to smile at his comment. His thoughts didn’t flatter her at all. Yep, that was her story and she was sticking to it. So what if her beauty overwhelmed him? Brandi sat down at her desk and folded her hands in her lap. His opinion of her didn’t matter. He was a patient at a mental institution.
