For Briony

Well, Rico went down in the first round of the Ultimate Shifter competition, but that's okay. *sigh* He's a more peaceful sort anyway.

But part of participating in the challenge was to have our hero write a plan of seduction. Not a love letter, but an invitation...something to sway the heroine to his will. Anyhow, I don't really excel at writing over-the-top alpha males. And I don't do dirty talk very well. So Rico wrote Briony a poem. I think that's kinda in character for him. :)

Anyhow, I'm not a poet, it just started as a note and came out this way. 

For Briony

You will come with me, Briony.

Up into the mountains where the summer wind whispers through the pines
 and carries their perfume to us in the star-kissed night.
In the darkness we’ll run, new grass like velvet under our feet, and the moon our gentle companion. We’ll fall together and make love, our bodies heated and needy and so very willing.
We’ll listen to the Raven as he shares his secrets and we’ll laugh with Coyote when he tells his stories to all who will listen. We’ll drink from an icy stream and dine on berries that are so sweet and fine. Sated and weary, we’ll lay down in a bed of leaves and sleep, dreaming of each other and the days and years to come. 

Come to me, Briony.

I want you to touch me as I really am: both man, and beast. I want to feel your hands on my fur and taste your sweet skin beneath the gentle pressure of my fangs. Will you let me do that? Will you lay still and fearless as I taste your very life? Can I trust you to trust me? 

Lay with me, Briony,

We’ll look into the clear waters so you can see the woman I need so badly. Sometimes you are blind to her, but you’ll watch as I touch you, running my hands over your curves. You’ll see my eyes heat with desire. And I will watch as you

Come with me, Briony.

Its The Ultimate Alpha Challenge!

All Romance E-books has chosen Rico from Toxic to participate in the Ultimate Alpha Challenge! We're up against a majorly kick-ass dragon shifter, so go show Rico a little love...after all, you do want us to stay around long enough to read Rico's poem to Briony...don't you? heheheh...

Did you love Educating Evangeline and Hunting Holly in the Doms of Dark Haven series? Here's the book that first introduced the Truckee Wolves!

Toxic by Belinda McBride
Truckee Wolves Series
Loose Id
Paranormal Romance (M/F)
Buy at Publisher

There are three things that Dr. Briony Theale loves. Her job as a veterinarian, a good bar of rich, dark chocolate, and Rico, the ranger in charge of the Wildlife Rescue center. When a casual dinner with Rico turns surprisingly intimate, Briony realizes that she might just have a chance with him after all, if only she could lose a few pounds. It’s the ultimate sacrifice, but Briony goes cold turkey, and swears off chocolate forever. 
Rico Montgomery fell hard for Briony the first time he set eyes on the curvy little doctor. Her rich brown hair and cocoa skin trigger cravings that he can barely control, and her fragrance is like the sweetest, richest chocolate he’s ever scented in his life. That’s a bad thing for Rico, because to a werewolf like him, chocolate is literally a toxin. After his pack warns him off the very human doctor, Rico finds himself even more drawn to Briony. 
Rico can’t live with it, and Briony can’t live without it. And when a certain wandering wolf finds a bag of chocolate in the trash near Briony’s clinic, these two will find out just how toxic love can be.

What reviewers are saying about TOXIC...

"...Ms. McBride is a cock tease as she keeps hinting with more D/s scenes yet stops right before it is realized.  She saucily builds up her secondary characters too.  This little taste makes the readers hunger for more.."~ Spanking Romance

"...I love the Truckee wolves and this story does not disappoint. Once I started this book I could not put it down. Fast paced and intriguing, it had me right from the start..." ~ Long & Short Reviews
