When a flitter-craft crash lands near Gregory's lair, the Imperial were-panther doesn't expect to find an unconscious female dangling from the captain's harness. Danika is stubborn, feisty and in her first heat cycle.
Claiming Danika as his bond-mate is complicated by the reptilian cyborg who's been sent to return her to her father's estate, and an ex-fiancé who just won't take no for an answer.
Gregory's life is about to get interesting...

She knew what he wanted, but she resisted. She didn't want to shift back to her human form and give up the amazing freedom she felt as a panther. He lowered his head to within inches of her muzzle and snarled again. Danika hissed and spit, but he didn't budge. Every line of his magnificent body radiated steely determination. He wanted her to shift.

She considered ignoring him, forcing him to mate with her panther. The scent of his arousal hung heavy in the air, and although unusual, she knew Imperial Were-Panthers sometimes mated in their shifted forms.

Gregory butted her with his head, and she bared her fangs, snarling her annoyance even as she prepared to do what he demanded. Calling her magic, she felt the change sweeping over her, returning her to her vulnerable human form.

Gregory stepped back to give her room, and she grudgingly acknowledged his tact. Usually, she returned to human form in the same clothing that she'd had on when she shifted. Unfortunately, this time it meant she was stark naked.

She lay still for a moment, regaining her breath. A brilliant flash of light lit up the clearing to her left as Gregory called his own magic. For a brief second, she considered making a run for it while he changed, but common sense prevailed. Alone and naked, where would she go? And besides, every fiber in her body, every nerve, was on fire at the thought of coupling with him.

Gregory stepped out of the cloud of magic, and he looked pissed. Pissed and aroused. "What the hell were you thinking, running off like that?" He stalked toward her, two hundred pounds of naked rippling muscle and attitude. His engorged cock left little doubt that he wanted her. "There's nothing for ten days march in any direction, and without supplies you wouldn't last the first five."

Danika raised her brows, refusing to cower. "I'm an Imperial Were-Panther. I think I could live off the land for a dozen solar cycles."

"Not on this planet." He stopped, towering over her. "The local predators would have you for breakfast." He exuded raw sexuality, an animal hunger visible in his stark expression.

"What predators?" The question came out a husky whisper, and Danika could feel the fiery heat flickering along her nerves. The wildness she'd kept caged inside her all these years threatened to break free, to take over the practical young woman who'd taken a calculated risk and fled in a flitter craft to claim her freedom.

"Me." He grabbed her wrist and jerked her toward him, crushing her against his chest while he brought his lips down to claim hers. The kiss was pure alpha male, dominant and demanding. He invaded her mouth, tasting, exploring, and leaving her in no doubt as to his intentions. Growling low in his throat, he dragged her up hard against him, his hands moving on her ass. The thick bulge of his cock pressed into her belly while his hands roamed her body, exploring every last inch of her naked skin.

She sighed, melting against him as she realized just how aroused he was. Angry and aroused, a very dangerous combination in an Imperial Were-Panther. She should be scared, but the heat radiating up from her loins left little room for anything but lust. She'd had lovers over the past few years, but none had left her feeling this raw hunger.

She moved against him, shaping her body to his as she returned his kiss with an intense passion. Rubbing her naked body against him, she played a dangerous game, taunting him when she knew his wild nature was already stretching his control to the limits.

She didn't care. She wanted him, wanted to feel his hard cock inside her, wanted to feel his hands moving over her burning flesh. She moaned and squirmed against him, long past worrying about the consequences.

He pulled his mouth away from her lips, moving down to nibble on the tender flesh of her neck. His teeth left tiny stinging marks everywhere they went, marking her as his. Marking her as his mate.

The significance of that gesture didn't register in Danika's lust-fogged mind. The only things that mattered right now were the darts of liquid desire dancing down her spine. She'd never felt this urgent need before, this intense desire to join with a male.

With an impatient growl, Gregory picked her up as if she weighed less than a nano-bot. Holding her tight against his warm body, he strode across the clearing to a bed of soft moss under one of the big trees and dropped to his knees. Laying her down in the cool foliage, he straddled her body. His eyes darkening, he slid his hands to her breasts.

Danika closed her eyes and arched her back, pushing herself against his hands. The feel of his palms on her nipples sent a stream of erotic heat straight to her groin, and she could feel the moisture gathering in her sex.

Gregory's nostrils flared wide, and she knew he could smell her readiness, but he continued to worship her breasts with his hands and lips, trapping the aching nipples between his thumbs and forefingers and grazing them with his teeth, his gaze fixed on her face as she whimpered and squirmed beneath him.

"You're so responsive. You were born for this. What were your guardians thinking, letting you fly around on your own?" He snapped his teeth together, irritation showing in his frown. "Especially considering you're in heat. You could be in so much danger."

And now for Anne's Halloween Contribution: Easy Spiderweb Cheesecake!

Easy Spider Web Cheesecake


1 pkg unflavored gelatin (about 24 ox)
¼-cup cold water
2 – 8 ounce pkgs of cream cheese – (I use low fat)
½-cup sugar
½ cup whipping cream (makes up for the low fat cheese!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 9 inch chocolate graham wafer crumb crust
2 squares semisweet bakers chocolate or ¼ cup chocolate chips
1 table spoon butter or margarine

In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over the water and let stand for a minute, then heat and stir until dissolved. Remove from stove and cool slightly. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in the cream, vanilla and gelatin until smooth. Pour into crust.

Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave, and stir until smooth. Put in a Ziploc bag and cut a small hole in one corner. Pipe a circle of chocolate about an inch wide int he centre of the cake. Then pipe increasingly large circles around it about half an inch apart until you have six or seven circles. Take a toothpick and draw it through the circles from the centre to the outer edge. Wipe it clean, and repeat until you have a web pattern on the top. Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or until firm.
