“Fear isn’t in my nature.” His lips lifted in a smirk while his green eyes challenged her.
She placed her hand on the table palm up. One touch, and she’d know if this man was her mate.
“Don’t you want my name first?” he asked.
“Aribelle, and if we imprint, then you can tell me yours. If not, then we can go in my truck, have our fun anyways, and never bother looking back.” Her wolf growled at the idea of letting him go, but if they weren’t mates, she couldn’t keep him close.
“Which one do you want more? A hot one-night stand where I ruin you for everyone else or a mate?” His eyes twinkled with delight as he finished his beer. He set the bottle down next to Aribelle’s hand.
“My wolf is saying one thing, but I know mates change everything.” Her mind hummed with the buzz of alcohol.
“You didn’t exactly answer the question.” He leaned in toward her but still kept his hands to himself.
“Stop stalling.” She moved her hand closer to him but didn’t grab his arm like she wanted to.
A low growl vibrated through his lungs seconds before his hand grabbed hers. A current of electricity zipped up her arm, signaling the imprint. They had three days to complete the bond by mating or lose their wolves.
Those were the magical rules, and no one had ever found a way to break the magic.
