Overview

“I need to feel every inch of your skin against mine.”

She rushed him and, with a burst of lycan strength, took him down onto the floor.

For a few seconds, she sat motionless, her gaze not once wavering from his. He’d never even imagined a more exquisite woman. From the moment he’d first taken her hand at the cemetery six months ago, she’d become as essential to him as the air he breathed. For many years he thought he would never find a love as strong and as pure as her love. Now, he couldn’t fathom a life without her. He never wanted to try.

Too afraid to move, to touch her, to do anything that might stop her, he kept his fists clenched as his sides. He watched. He waited. He hoped for more. The sight of her on top of him, looking down at him with so much love and lust in her eyes, stole his breath away. It was his perfect fantasy made reality. He’d never experienced anything nearly as glorious until she reached down to touch him.

Her fingers never stopped touching his body, moving over him, exploring him with such obvious fascination and hunger that he was trembling with pleasure, with anticipation for more. “I really want to hate you right now, Joseph. I can’t believe I’m burning up for you like this. I’m going crazy. I’m not even sure of what to do with you.” Moving slowly, she leaned down, stretching her body over his. “I’ve never needed anything more than I need you right now. I have to touch you.”

Her breath was deliciously hot against his skin as her lips moved from the base of his throat to his jaw. “Oh, damn, Mia.” Closing his eyes, he savored the sensation of her mouth and tongue playing over his skin. He knew he needed to stop her. “Mia.” Her name came out sounding like a strangled groan. Her teeth gently teased his chin, jaw, neck, and ear. “Wait.” His pulse thundered in his ears. Nothing inside him wanted to detour her from touching him. How the hell was he going to regain control of his body’s demand for her?

“I feel alive when I’m with you.” Her fingers worked on unknotting his tie until she’d pulled it off. She framed his face with her hands. “Look at me, Joseph.” He opened his eyes. “Stop holding back. I need you to touch my body, every part of my body. Lose control with me. I need to feel every inch of your skin against mine. Need me, burn for me like I’m burning up for you.” Her mouth felt heavenly in the most sinful of ways feeding on him as her fingers worked to undo his shirt buttons. “Touch me, Joseph.”

Meet the Author

I live in Zeeland, Michigan where half of the year is winter and other, much shorter half, is summer. Yippy summer! It’s a wonderful place to live as long as you own a four wheel drive vehicle and you happen to get a kick out of measuring the snow fall in feet rather than inches. I write paranormal romance because I love to explore and manipulate the limitless possibilities of the genre. To be completely honest, I’m also very fond of taking a totally hot, powerful immortal hero and using a strong, confident, beautiful heroine to turn his world upside down and make him fight like hell for a victory that seems impossible to achieve. Some might call it torture. I call it entertainment and character building. Regardless, it’s great fun!I have a strong aversion for helpless heroines. Though she’s afraid, a heroine must always be willing to fight like hell. And yes, even if the fighting is against the hero. I’m not sure why, but I tend to really enjoy it when the heroine fights against the hero. Hmm…maybe that deserves a little thought. Nah. Putting a hero through the wringer builds personality, right? How else could anyone empathize with a powerful, wickedly sexy immortal male that possesses the wherewithal to stand against and conquer the most dangerous forces of darkness and seduce the most beautiful women in existence? My thoughts are always wandering from one world to the next. I love to frequently visit my imagination, I’m happy to be me. I appreciate complicated. For me, entertaining those little voices and wickedly hot delusions in the middle of the night are an imperative part of the writing process. How else would I know what comes before the end?I’m often accused of being a little bit naughtier than nice and slightly rough around the edges. Okay. I lied. Very rough around the edges. Life has been a challenge. But I’m grateful for every challenge I’ve faced. Through them, I’ve learned to focus on the goal rather than the walls surrounding it. Basically, I figure that as long as I enjoy life and do all that I can to encourage and help the people around me enjoy life, it’s all good.

    Exciting Paranormal

    Exquisite Breath of Darkness by Candice Stauffer
    Joseph Payne is a two thousand year old warrior. One of his favorite pastimes is facebook. Not his own mind you, he likes messing with profiles of his friends. Six months ago he met Mia Harte. He’s been around her ever since….even though she does all she can to keep him away. He knows she is lycan and can’t be his mate but that don’t stop him from loving and protecting her. Not even though she’s dying and not even when Eli Thomas and his pack come to claim her.

    Mia knows her time is running out on earth and decides to enjoy what is left with Joseph.
    Together they have vampires and ghouls to fight and a lycan who says she belongs to him. She even discovers that there is such a thing as a good vampire, unbelievable!

    This is not listed as a series but I highly recommend reading them in order. The first book is Eternal Breath of Darkness and we first meet Joseph and Mia. The author brings him to life with his good natured jokes and humor and Mia with her tough exterior yet she would die protecting those she loves. We get a glimpse of them again in the second book; Sweet, Decadent Fire. In each book other characters are brought to life. Nikolas who refuses to accept his mate, Brianna but also can't let her go. Demetri a ten thousand year old demon gone bad. Dragons, vampires and lycons together; fighting, loving and plotting. At the end of this book you can also read the preview for the fourth book; Hot, Decadent Rising.

    Action Packed

    This is the second book in the series I loved it so much I was hooked from the start and could not put it down.
    The characters in this story were amazing Hayden and Caylee, Mia and Joseph. Brianna and Nikola's they were so connected though out the book.
    The minor characters were good also Eli, Caleb to name a few.
    This story was filled with Love, Lust Passion and a lot of action.
    I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
