Also in this series:
Her defiant words appealed to him on a primal level, but her precarious position made his blood turn to ice. Thorn had been so enraged, so incensed that he had one thought – save Lexi.
It wasn’t until it was over that Thorn realized what he had done. She had seen him shift. Lexi now knew the secret that everyone at Dreagan worked so tirelessly to protect.
“You’re the other beings killing the Dark,” she said.
He closed his eyes. “Aye.”
“You’re a dragon.”
His chin dropped to his chest. There were many reasons he hadn’t intended to tell her what he was, but the biggest was the way she was handling things now. She was in shock at all she had seen. When that shock gave way, she would be too frightened of him to even be in the same city.
“You’re a damn dragon!” she yelled.
Thorn was going to have to have Guy come and wipe Lexi’s memories of anything to do with him. It might even be better if she didn’t remember the Dark either.
“Look at me,” she demanded.
He whirled around and held out his arms. “What do you want me to say? Yes. I’m a dragon!”
“How?” She gave a small shake of her head, her voice breaking on the word.
“We’ve been here since the beginning of time.”
“Impossible. We’d have found something.”
Thorn lifted one shoulder. “We have some human allies who have helped to keep us hidden.”
“This makes no sense.” She looked around at the warehouse as if seeing it for the first time.
“None of this would be an issue if you’d remained in the flat as I told you.”
Her gaze narrowed on him. “Told me? I’m not some dog to be ordered around.”
“Nay, you’re a human who has stepped in a war she has no business knowing about!”
“Maybe if more of us humans did know we wouldn’t be dying by the dozens every day because of the Dark!”
Thorn took a step toward her. “You really think knowing of the Dark would stop the deaths?”
“It certainly couldn’t hurt,” she replied, moving toward him.
“That simple thinking is why the Fae came for you to begin with. You think in the entire universe that you’re the only beings? Do you really think there aren’t other planets with life on them?”
“I don’t care about them, I-”
“Well you should care,” he interrupted. He took another step. “Use your brain, Lexi. You’re smart. Look around at your world. Do you really think cancer can’t be cured when your doctors have cured almost everything else? The Dark keep preventing it. They want you weak and stupid.”
“I’m not stupid”
“I told you how dangerous it was out on the streets. I told you to remain inside the flat.”
She rolled her eyes. “I had every intention of doing just that except I saw you jump off a six-story roof. Humans can’t do that.”
“That still doesna mean you should’ve followed us!”
They were so close he could see the black circle around her irises. Her gray eyes were stormy with anger, fear, and anxiety.
“I used my head,” she retorted.
Thorn looked down at her and nearly groaned when he felt her breasts rub against his chest. To his horror, the fury in her gray eyes turned to desire.
No matter how hard he tried he couldn’t stop himself from yanking Lexi against him as he took her lips in a savage kiss.
He spun her around and pressed her up against a wall. Her hands delved into his hair as she answered his kiss with one just as fierce and violent as his.
Thorn came to his senses and lifted his head. He looked down at her swollen lips and his hard cock begged him to continue. Whatever thought he had vanished with his craving of her.
He touched her cheek before he slid his hand around to the back of her neck and held her head as he slowly kissed her, tasting the passion and need.
