Excerpt-a-Ganza: Shifter Madness - MacRieve by Kresley Cole

Today we continue our dive into my favorite shifter worlds with Kresley Cole's brilliant Immortals After Dark series.  The latest book in the series is MacRieve and... yeah... *fans self*...

A Beast in Torment

Uilleam MacRieve believed he’d laid to rest the ghosts of his boyhood. But when a brutal torture revives those ancient agonies and destroys his Lykae instinct, the proud Scot craves the oblivion of death. Until he finds her—a young human so full of spirit and courage that she pulls him back from the brink.

A Beauty in Chains

Seized for the auction block, Chloe Todd is forced to enter a terrifying new world of monsters and lore as a bound slave. When offered up to creatures of the dark, she fears she won’t last the night. Until she’s claimed by him—a wicked immortal with heartbreaking eyes, whose touch sets her blood on fire.

A Full Moon on the Rise

With enemies circling, MacRieve spirits Chloe away to the isolated Highland keep of his youth. But once he takes her to his bed, his sensual mate becomes something more than human, evoking his savage past and testing his sanity. On the cusp of the full moon, can he conquer his worst nightmare to save Chloe . . . from himself?


This was probably a bad idea, but at that moment, Chloe couldn’t recall a single reason why. If MacRieve stopped this, she was fairly certain she’d slide-tackle him.
He didn’t stop. His lips were hot on her, scorching a line up her neck.
Excitement drummed through her, her dread completely absent, her senses overloaded. She smelled the rain, the blossoms, his heady scent. How could he possibly smell so good?
When his clever tongue flicked rain from her damp skin, she wondered, Why fight this?
She was as eager as she’d been during her first pro soccer game. She hadn’t let anything stand in her way that day, just surrendered completely to the thrill, the adrenaline, the driving need to experience everything.
She would do the same with this. Don’t be a coward. See where this path leads you.
So far this path was making her question how she’d been living without MacRieve her entire life.
