PreOrder VAEWOLF: Damn The Darkness, April 30th

Caitlin fought back her frustration with both men, waiting for Jackson to admit he'd been in Dylan's thoughts.

"What did you glean from Dylan’s open mental pathways?" 

Once he told her, he added,  “Now do you want to hear my idea?”

"Why not?" She was out of ideas. “Only if it’s going to get Dylan to agree to the mate bond and bind me to him."

"Once he agrees, you know I'm in." Jackson grunted. “At least, it’s a step in the right direction.” He pulled the towel from around his waist, showing he was naked and aroused, as always. 

“If his feeling are anything like mine, he can’t stand the idea of not pleasing you. It’s part of the mate bond. We can’t deny you no matter what you ask. I got that tidbit from his mind while we were in the bar--" 

Jackson's serious expression rearranged into a grimace  "I probably shouldn’t have told you--”

“I promise I won’t take advantage.” 

He sat next to her, and Caitlin patted him on the knee. “Go on. Tell me your plan.”

“Anyway... I figure we’re going to have to play on that aspect of the relationship if we’re going to get him to consider the ménage bond.” Jackson's jaw tightened. He wasn't giving up on them. “Scoot over closer to him, so he gets your scent and we can get started.” 

When she did as he asked, she winced. The alcohol leached from his pores. 
"Ew! Speaking of scents..." Caitlin moved away to the far edge of the bed. "He smells ripe." 

Jackson stood next to Dylan and began undressing him from his boots up. “You want to help?”

“Help? Okay... What exactly are we doing?”

“We’re going to seduce him into agreeing to this, until he can’t deny it’s the right thing.”

Caitlin’s eyes went wide. “'We’re'?”

“Sort of. Not 'we' exactly. 'You'. You’re going to have the biggest role, but I’ll play along.”

When she got closer to Dylan, she pinched her nose . “Ugh. I love the man, but  he smells like a cross between swamp gas and a brewery. If you want me to take part in his seduction, you’re going to have to get back in the shower with him and clean him up.”

Jackson laughed. “Really? Not exactly what I was thinking.”

“I’ll turn on the water. Good luck with the naked man.” Caitlin gave him a don't-mess-with-me  look and went into the bathroom. 

“Thanks, but no thanks. Why don’t you join us?" Jackson hadn’t meant it as a question. It was a weighted alpha suggestion. But when he added, "You can finish him off with a little of what we shared before,” she decided his idea had merit.

“O-oh.” Caitlin admired Dylan’s ripped abs and suddenly couldn't wait to get her hands on him. “I don’t suppose you’re looking forward to soaping him up." 

“Not really. I was counting on you for that.” Jackson snarled while pulling off Dylan’s pants. "This is sacrifice enough."

She knew the answer before she asked. Trying to keep the enthusiasm out of her voice was not easy. "I guess I get the honors. 

Suddenly, Caitlin couldn’t wait to run her hands all over Dylan again. If only he were more aware. She sighed thinking she’d settle for the pleasure of just touching him again. Maybe he’d respond. 

Oh, yes. She smiled. He'd respond. Then all bets were off.

Jackson half walked, half carried the big naked vampire into the shower, supporting and holding Dylan until the water roused him enough to stand on his own. The man must have consumed an ungodly amount of liquor. 

"Scented body wash will help."

"Argh!" Jackson growled when he came face to face with Dylan. "Get the tooth brush and paste. Start with his mouth so his breath doesn’t asphyxiate me." 

After convincing Dylan to rinse his mouth with mouthwash without swallowing, she was ready to forget the plan. But while Jackson braced Dylan, Caitlin started at the top.

She washed his hair, and after a few minutes of running her hands over his shoulders, back, and chest, she started on his abs. Heat began to consume her, and then she smelled the bonding scent--Jackson's, hers, and Dylan's. Her hands moved right below his navel, and... 

Well, no worries. Dylan couldn't claim he was completely out of it. Caitlin grinned. The best part of the highlander was wide awake.
