“You could have been hurt.”
“As could you.”
“I don’t give a damn about me.” His grip tightened, but his gaze shifted away. “I won’t have you endangered. And...and you shouldn’t have had to witness that.”
“Witness what?” His words surprised her. “You were unbelievably courageous. You saved us.”
He stiffened. “Most élithe don’t like Martian savagery.”
Her heart turned over. There was more to his reaction than just annoyance over her refusal to listen to him. More even than just fear for her well-being. She might have felt it through their bond if both of them weren’t so riled up, a swirling storm of emotion that only stoked the other’s temper higher.
“I’m not most élithe.” Tossing the letter opener aside, she reached up and dragged her nails down his chest. “I thought we liked that fierceness about each other?”
The tension leaked away as he realized she was far from disgusted by his display. His fangs and body shrinking back to their normal size, which meant he was still three times her size and a thousand times stronger—and still fairly riled up. Her nipples went rock hard.
“We do.” His expression turned arrogant once more. “But as Warlord I’m used to my men following orders.”
Goddess help her, his arrogance turned her on. Her gaze locked with his. “I can follow orders.”
“Can you?” His voice had deepened to a rasped challenge.
The lust between them crashed like surging waves along the golden soul ties, charging the air and sending dark, seething energy crackling against her skin.
“Yes.” She wanted him to understand she accepted him exactly as he was. “If I respect the man giving them, I can be very obedient.”
He leaned in, dropping to his knees while his big hands slammed into the leather seats by her sides, caging her so there was nowhere to run. “Even if those orders have nothing to do with the investigation and everything to do with us?”
Her eyes locked with his. “Even then.”
