Alpha Male Diner: Josh Conway (human) by Nancy Corrigan

Josh Conway (Hot Human in a Royal Shifter world)
Recipe created by: Nancy Corrigan
Favorite Obsession, Royal Pride 3

Start with One Black Irish bar owner. 
Then add:
· A bit of stubble
· Wavy, unkempt black hair
· Blue eyes that ensnare
· A wicked claw mark on his cheek
· A smile guaranteed to cause instant arousal
· A body a Greek God would envy with tattoos and scars from a wild youth

Now to make him alpha enough to tame and love a predator mix in:
· A little obsession for his woman
· Determination
· Faith in their love
· Possessiveness
· Patience 
· A willingness to take on all the shifters to claim his mate

Mold him into the role of friend, lover and guardian, but to make him into the man destined to change the shifter world, don’t forget the secret ingredient of… Well, it wouldn’t be a secret if I told you, but I can say that it smells like apple pie. ;-)

Finally, put him within five feet of Mira and stand back…way back. Oh and you might want to sit down. Things will get SCORCHING but oh, so sweet.

Are you sitting? Good then read on…

Taste Test

“Do you trust me, kitten?”

Not once had he demanded such a thing from her. Trust to a shifter was not lightly given, even to a mate. Just because her breeding partner couldn’t kill her, it didn’t mean time spent in his company was pleasant. She’d known too many females who’d suffered at their mates’ hands to know not to blindly give her trust. But…but this was Josh, the man she loved more than anyone in the world.

She nodded, the scope of her acceptance too much to manage more.

A pleased grin spread over his familiar and beloved features. Seeing it satisfied her on a primal level she was sure few humans would understand, Josh included. She’d made her male happy and that…well, that tightened their bond and tugged them closer, spiritually and physically. It was the mystical tether many shifters who’d mated for breeding purposes only refused to admit existed.

She felt it growing between them, but it was the smile on his face and the emotions she saw reflected in his blue eyes that sealed her fate. It was unstoppable, like the sun rising each day. Fears threatened to surface and ruin the moment. She shoved them aside. Tomorrow. She’d deal with them tomorrow and figure out a way to sever what she cultivated today. She’d have an eternity for regrets, but her happiness might only comprise of this one night.

“Good, my kitten. Then let me take care of you.”

She licked her lips. “Okay.”

He tugged on her hand. “Up, babe.”

She swung her legs to the side, moved to stand but he stopped her with his hands on her thighs. He pushed his body between her legs so she was spread wide for him.

“And Mira?”


The wicked lift to his lip stopped her heart. She held her breath and waited for him to speak.

“You will do everything I tell you. If you think to disobey me, I’ll leave you with only your fingers to ease your hunger.” He pressed a chaste kiss to her lips. “Understand, my female?”

Right in that moment, she realized her mistake. She’d fallen in love with a human, but he was as much a predator as any shifter.

And tonight…tonight, he was going to tame her.

Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.

One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.
