Emma’s doctor stood framed in the doorway, a half-smile arrested on his face, his light brown eyes wide as he stared at me in shock.

The smell of him filled the room—almost spicy, and utterly terrifying. I froze, but the muscles under my skin rippled. Sucking in air, I flicked my tongue out across my lips. His scent flowed through my mouth. He tasted like heat, but not like prey.


He smelled like danger, and I was about to shift.

Oh, hell.

The room swung into shades of gray and I blinked quickly to keep him from seeing the slitted pupils of my partially shifted eyes.

I closed my mouth and breathed deeply through my nose, focusing on my mammal senses, the human part of me. I glanced down at the floor and waited for the colors to come flooding back. Once I was in control of my senses, I looked back up at him.

With a shudder that trembled through his entire body, he shook himself out of his immobility.

The whole thing couldn’t have lasted for more than a few seconds, but I was drenched in sweat.
