Lauren awakens to find a naked man in her bedroom. Prince Demerran is the answer to any woman's fantasy, but not for Lauren! She reluctantly agrees to aid him in his quest to free himself from the spell-Binding that has trapped him on earth for over 1,000 years. There's only one problem-the sex-magic that Demerran must use is dangerous and if they fail, they could both die, or worse... become forever trapped in the spell-prison.

The Excerpt
Pride's Passion:
"We call it Schahor: the sex-magic," Demerran whispered. "And we of N'Uran know all there is to know of it!"

Lauren ran her hands down his back, tracing her nails over his spine, up and down. His skin goosepimpled and beneath her caress, he shivered. She had studied the acupuncture meridian points and the chakras in anticipation of this moment. 'Do you like this?' she asked him.

''Do that again. Oh, yes. Again, please. Ah, lower. Oh.great.stars!'

Encouraged by his response, Lauren dared more and more and she had him trembling uncontrollably within minutes.

"Now, my lady, it is your turn. Lie down. Splay your legs. Mnn. Wider, Lauren. Let me feast upon you."

He teased open her lower lips with the tip of his penis, then he used his prick to scroll back and forth, up and down across her cleft. His hands meanwhile roamed over her body, seeking and locating her sex meridians. She was trembling uncontrollably within moments.

Their breathing heightened, their heart rates quickened.

He licked the hollow between her breasts. "You taste different than before." He lifted his gaze to her. "No need to use this false unguent, your perfume is unique.all I need to smell and taste." He licked her greedily.

She tongued his neck and bit him gently. "You taste good, too."

"What do I taste like?"


"Please try."

"Ok. Exotic. Of a world far away. I like it very much."

"I am pleased."

He lifted the negligee up her body, the whisper soft scrape of silk against her aroused skin made her moan. He took one nipple into his mouth, his tongue tormenting it to a tight peak, then traced his mouth across to the other breast and brought its nipple erect. He gently nibbled, as his hands slid up and down her body, his nails scraping over her skin.

She shivered. She locked her legs around his waist and that brought his penis tip to the periphery of her slit. She drew in a breath, for he was a big man and.

"Not yet, Lauren. Too soon. Have you learnt nothing of me that you think I will attempt this without proper, and adequate preparation?" He laughed as he lowered her to the rug and knelt between her knees, again opening her wide.

She reached down and took his erection, thumbing the tip, opening him. His gasp made her pause. "Did I hurt you?"

"The best pain, Lauren. You give me the best pain. Do it again."

More stories are planned for the 'hunter/hunted' universe.

The Reviews:
Romance Reviews Today: Rating: bonfire.
PRIDE'S PASSION is a story of seduction, curses, and yep, you guessed it...pride. Demerran is arrogant and bull-headed which gets him into deep trouble. Thus the curse. The old saying, "Pride goeth before a fall" is certainly true for Demerran. Lauren is a woman who needs to let loose and have fun. I chuckled when she took the rug outside and gave it a good beating. Poor Demerran! Astrid Cooper writes an interesting and most enjoyable tale. (Reviewed by: Sinclair Reid).
