Because I Want a Vampire's Kiss! (Book 3)

Chapter 9

Leo pulled out of the kiss when they were both breathless. Leaning his forehead against hers, he stared into her beautiful eyes. “Camilla, I want you to repeat what I say in your own words. This will basically be the vampire version of wedding vows, which is as binding to us as the human’s piece of paper. Although, if you wish, we can have a wedding later.”

“This is part of the bonding then?”

Ja and blood will be exchanged also.”

Camilla nodded in agreement and he kissed her again. Soon they were once more breathless.

Leo left her lips to kiss down her neck. The smell of peaches and her arousal, along with the sound of her heartbeat, began to arouse both sides of him. The human and the beast. His fangs descended, and he ran his nose along her neck, breathing in the sweet smell of a woman.

Unable to resist her any longer he asked, “Just a taste, Geliebte, may I have just a taste?”

Camilla moaned as her head tipped to the side. Softly she said, “Yes.”

He quickly licked along the pulsing vein in her neck, using his saliva to numb it. That way, his bite wouldn’t hurt. He bit down with a moan as the full flavor of her essence burst over his tongue. He only took what was needed for the bonding, though he wanted more before he pulled back.

Licking her wound shut, he unbuttoned his shirt quickly. He used a lengthened fingernail to make a gash on his neck. “Drink, little one.”

Leaning in, she sucked at his skin as if creating a love bite.

He hissed again as her sucking aroused him further. When he knew she’d had enough, he pulled her away, kissing her again. It wasn’t long before he was needing more than kisses. So, he began unbuttoning the shirt she had on and groaned when he found her naked underneath.

She pulled back and winked. “Like me naked, do you?”

He quickly moved her off him, and onto her back on the bed. Then he stood and began to strip himself. Once he was back on the bed, hovering over her, he agreed, “Ja, I do, so very much and I need you, Camilla. I need all of you, heart, body, and blood. I want us to be together for as long as we both walk this earth. You can become as I am, or I can begin aging as you do. Either way when you no longer walk this earth, neither will I.”

His hands began to roam over her, feeling her soft womanly skin.

“Ah… Leo…” she whispered breathlessly as her body bucked under his.

As he reigned kisses across her shoulder, his hand slowly moved up the inside of her thigh as she whimpered and bucked. His fingers found her warm wetness and he whimpered with her. He slowly moved his fingers, arousing her more as he readied her body to accept his. He was a big man, and his beloved was a little bit of nothing. For nothing in this world did he want to hurt her.

“Leo, please,” she cried out as her hips once more pushed upward.

Reaching over, he grabbed one of the condoms he’d purchased while out. He made short work of rolling it on, before moving over her. Gently, he nipped her ear before asking, “Are you ready for me, Geliebte?”

Her eyes fluttered open and connected with his as she begged, “Yes! Yes, please, Leo. I want you now.”

Speaking softly, he said, “Camilla Smythe, my Geliebte. I will be your first, your last, your everything if you will let me. I will love you until we are no more.”

He moved his hips, sliding the tip of his cock into her wet folds.

“Leo, my love, you will be my first, my last, my forever love of whom I have dreamed of so often. I will love you until we are no more.”

He gave a hissing groan, his willpower completely gone. He pushed into her, taking her innocence even as his fangs once more sank deep into her neck.

She screamed his name as pleasure consumed her and she begged, “More.”

As they topped the mountain of pleasure, he retracted his fangs to kiss her. His hand gripped her thigh, bringing her leg up as he thrust deeper in. Once, twice, just one more thrust had her screaming his name. Her pleasure was complete as she tightened her thighs around him.

One thrust, a second thrust, then a third as her tight walls squeezed him hard, bringing his release. He groaned out her name as he lay, propped on his elbows for a moment. He waited for her body to release him and once it had, he moved off the top of her. Throwing away the condom, he lay down and pulled her into his arms. Giving her one more kiss, he felt her relax and drift off to sleep.

Leo lay there for a few moments, running his hand up and down her thigh she had thrown over his hip. His body was most satisfied, yet as he ran his hand over her leg, he couldn’t help but think about the main artery that ran through it. He couldn’t help but think how good it would feel to bite down on it as his fingers burrowed deep in her feminine folds. He gave a slight groan, as he pushed the thought away. He then went to sleep, hungering for what he hadn’t gotten.


Leo woke up the next morning with Camilla almost on top of him. Her head lay on his ribcage, her arm draped over his thighs while her left leg lay between his.

Reaching down, he ran his fingers through her hair, and she twitched a bit. He felt his hunger rise as it always did first thing in the morning, and he knew he needed to get up.

So, reaching down, he carefully moved Camilla over and got up. Walking to the kitchen, he grabbed a bottle from the fridge, heating it before quickly drinking it down as he wrinkled his nose.

Oh, how I miss the taste of warm blood straight from the vein. Even after almost a hundred years, I still miss it.

He sighed as he headed back to his bedroom. Drinking from his Geliebte had reminded him just how good it was, but he had never in his 196 years tasted blood as good as hers. Glancing over at her, he saw her snuggled into his pillow with a smile on her face.

Seeing her happy makes me so happy.

With one last look, he made his way to the bathroom for a shower. When his shower was over, he quickly dressed before sitting down on the edge of his bed.

He carefully brushed Camilla’s hair away from her face as he studied her small features. Her ears were small, and she wore two tiny studs in them, one diamond and one sapphire. He wondered if one was her birthstone. She had mentioned she had been given nine months to find her soulmate.

He nodded thoughtfully, Ja, six months would make it September, since it was July now and she said she had been searching for four months.

His gaze moved over the light sprinkling of freckles over her nose and cheeks before moving moved on to her lips. So kissable in their plump, pink state.

“Mm… Leo?” Camilla hummed as her eyes fluttered open.

Ja, little one?”

She blinked up at him with a frown. “Where are you going?”

“I’m going to work. I wasn’t going to wake you because I figured you needed the rest. I was just going to leave you a note.”

She licked her lips as she slowly sat up. Once upright, she pushed her nose into his chest as she wrapped her arms around him. He chuckled and wrapped his around her also.

“I don’t know why I’m still so sleepy,” she said after yawning.

“Mm… maybe because of all the fun we engaged in last night, and the fact that I took blood from you,” he suggested as he tilted her head up. A light flush covered it and he smiled.

“Um… yes… maybe,” she agreed. “Anyway, I think I’ll sleep a bit longer. I can maybe meet you for lunch later?”

“That would be great,” he agreed. “Come at about eleven, and I’ll take you to my favorite place to eat.”

“Where is that?” She lay her head back on his chest, closing her eyes on a yawn.

“Jimbo’s. Many years ago, when I lived in New Orleans, I found I loved Cajun food. So, when we moved here, I found Jimbo’s. It’s almost as good as New Orleans fare,” he told her as he began to run his nose up and down her neck.

Mm … she smells so good. He licked his lips and felt his fangs descend. I need a taste of her, just enough to tide me over.

“Little one, I need a drink. I promise not to take too much,” he murmured as he licked along with the pulse in her neck.

She gave a sleepy-sounding sigh as her eyes fluttered open slightly. Then she moved her head to the side, baring her neck to him and silently saying, “yes” to his request.

With a slight groan, he bit down and enjoyed the burst of warm blood on his tongue. His hand moved down to rub her thigh as he drank deeply. He couldn’t help but think about how good it would feel to sink his fangs deep into her thigh though.

Pulling back, he saw her eyes had dropped back shut. So, he lay her back down and pulled the sheet up over her bare chest.

“Thank you, little one, and sleep well,” he whispered. Placing a kiss on her cheek, he stood and left for work.
