A beast must claim his mate.
After watching over this world for millennia, a woman wandering in the woods should have been of no interest to me. But the moment I saw her bathing in a stream, only raw instinct mattered.
I was able to keep my lust at bay for a little while… until the scent of her helpless arousal as I reddened her bare bottom for putting herself in danger told me she was ready to be claimed.
But even if she’d been less reckless it would have made no difference in the end.
Sooner or later, she was always going to be mine.
