Lycan King

Forbidden Love--Lycans and Vampires do not mate.

When Eve, a beautiful vampire, journeys to King Drago's castle, she doesn't expect the contempt and dislike the king shows her. He wants her off his royal grounds because he doesn't want to place his people in harm's way with her vile thirst. Vampires are evil, he says, ruled by the devil, feeding off innocents to survive. Eve doesn't care what he thinks. She has arrived at his castle for one reason. She wants her daughter.

Drago, a two-hundred-year-old Lycan King, cannot explain the lust heating his loins for this undead beauty. She has the face of an angel, yet she splays her sword like a warrior and fights like his best royal guard. In time, it is more than her beauty and fighting skills that interests him. It is her courage and bravery, her compassion and honour that makes him realise he may have done her a great injustice calling her evil. He soon discovers he is lusting after her like no other because she is his one, his soul mate. How can that be? He knows of no Lycan in existence who has ever claimed a vampire.

Chapter One

The royal guard's face darkened with annoyance. 'Wait here,' he said and pushed the massive door in her face.

Eve released an impatient breath and stared at the ornate knocker. It was made entirely of gold and fashioned into the shape of a wolf baring its jaws. She grimaced beneath her covering.

The sun was strong and she kept her face down, lifting her gloved hands to secure the hood around her head. She prayed she didn't have to wait long. Her stomach clenched with hunger at the sweet, intoxicating scent of blood around her.

Focus, she told herself. Don't do anything stupid. She gritted her teeth and tried to block the scents around her, but it was so hard. After four hundred years, it wasn't any easier fighting the urge to feed off innocent humans, but she would rather die than give in to her vile thirst.

'Momma, why is that woman dressed like that? Isn't she hot?' a child a few paces behind her asked.

Eve knew she stood out like a sore thumb wearing her black cloak, covering her from head to toe, but it was either that, or burn to a crisp, another hellish side effect to immortality.

'Hush. Stop staring at her,' a woman said.

She pursed her lips. If the King didn't come soon, she was going to knock down the massive, brass door and find him herself. For a split second, she was tempted to do just that, but common sense prevailed. She didn't want to start a war.

Grimacing, she tried blocking the scents pummelling her senses.

After she accomplished what she came for, she would feed.

King Drago narrowed his gaze on his two royal guards, Nolan and Falk, entering the Great Hall. 'Well, what do you have to report?' he asked Falk, not bothering to hide his impatience. 'Does she remember?'

'Nay, Your Highness, she does not.'

He swore roughly under his breath. 'We need to know where Balkathan is hiding his pack. Tell Hesta I need results--now!' he growled.

'The healer said she is doing everything she can,' Falk said.

'Tell her she's not doing enough! Go! And don't return unless you have good news.'

Drago stared at his guard's retreating and clenched his jaw. For three weeks they couldn't get anything out of Katya. Three weeks! She was the only person who knew where Balkathan's lair was
