dropped at his brazen audacity. Dear god, he was blunt. Did people really act this way? “For heaven's sake, lower your voice and please scoot away.”
    Dante did neither. He folded his massive arms and challenged her with his belligerent stare.
    “Do you really think behaving like a barbarian will get you anywhere with me?” she asked.
    His countenance mocked her, eyes laughing at her. “You're still here, aren't you?”
    She stood defiantly.
    “Sit down.”
    His stern tone willed Sonya's bottom back into her chair. Her pulse accelerated at the sound of the gravel-toned voice giving her orders her body didn't seem capable of disobeying.
    “My name is Dante Ribaldi. Now it's your turn.”
    “Sonya Foster.” Sonya had no last name since she'd been created as an angel, so she simply chose one.
    “I'm just going to be really honest with you. I'm a werewolf.”
    Her eyes widened. “Oh.”
    “Does that scare you?”
    She snickered. “Trust me, Dante, I've seen much scarier in my lifetime.”
    “Is that a fact? Enlighten me.”
    Uh-oh. Don't give away your identity, you idiot! You don't even know him.
    “It's not important. I appreciate your honesty, though.”
    Dante smiled and nodded. “Now it's your turn. What are you?”
    Her heart pounded like a sledgehammer inside of her. How did he know she wasn't human? Her black angel wings were tucked away in her body. “I'm a woman.”
    He smirked. “Well, I should hope so. What else are you?”
    “A human being.”
    His eyebrow arched in challenge. “Is that what you're sticking with?”
    An element of danger hung in the air. Sonya wasn't sure if it was the storm of chemistry brewing between them, or if the edge stemmed from a genuine risk. “Yes.”
    A knowing look passed through his eyes and he motioned with his head for her to glance around the room. “I have the ability to detect paranormal beings wherever I am. Moreover, I'm able to pinpoint it down to the precise species. For instance, I can tell you that most of the people in this coffeehouse right now are human, with four exceptions. One is a werewolf – that would be me. Then we've got an owl shifter, a warlock and a crusnik.”
    His intense, accusing stare called her on her deception. Sonya's head dropped, unable to conceal the truth from his searching gaze.
    “Hey.” Dante angled her chin until she looked at him. “I'm not going to tell anybody what you are. I just want to get to know you.”
    “Why?”
    “Because you're hot and interesting and that vision the other day when I touched you absolutely fascinates the hell out of me.” His eyes were onyx today and they shimmered with blatant carnality. “You can't tell me you aren't the slightest bit intrigued by what you saw.”
    Sonya blushed as her lips pulled upward into an infatuated smile that she tried to hide behind the rim of her coffee cup. “I confess I'm curious, but that doesn't mean we should pursue it.”
    Dante took her hand in his and held it there. “I think we should. What if the fates are speaking to us and we let our destinies pass us by?”
    “I believe people choose their own fate.” She tried to pull her hand away, but his palm closed around hers and wouldn't let her go.
    “Shh,” he cooed as his finger traced delicate circles on her sensitive wrist.
    The stimulation combined with his hushed command made her blood simmer just beneath her skin.
    “You don't believe in a divine plan?”
    “Well, yes, but I believe in freewill.”
    “And what is your freewill telling you?” His soft, supple lips imprinted on her wrist before moving to her open palm and leaving the tiniest bit of moisture in its wake. The way his eyes hooded as he whispered provocatively against her skin was overwhelming.
    “It tells me you might not be so bad after all.”
    His grin made her pulse skitter with arousal. “I'm glad to hear it. I'd like to take you to dinner tonight.”
    The invitation excited her. Sonya hadn't been on a date in a while.
