A Chosen Mate

Chapter 1

From the moment Aaron Hotchner met Doctor Spencer Reid, he knew he was in trouble. His whole world was turned upside down.

He had been sitting in his office working on some paper work when the most incredible, amazing scent drifted into his office. Like spring time, coffee, and sex all rolled up into one delectable package. What the hell was causing that smell?

Color fled as his eyes changed. His gums itched as if his canines were about to drop, and his cock stood at attention, full mast. What is going on? I haven't lost control like this in years. I can't do this here.

Hotch closed his eyes and took a deep breath trying to calm himself, but that was a mistake. It just brought more of the amazing scent into him making him have even less control.

He concentrated on seeing the red on his striped tie and opened his eyes seeing the bright red color. He had succeeded in changing his eyes back to human.

He looked up at the knock on the door. It was Gideon and behind him, the source of the wonderful scent.

"Aaron Hotchner, meet Dr. Spencer Reid. He's the new agent I mentioned."

Aaron tried desperately to think of what he was supposed to say, to do. Why does he smell so good? Hotch just wanted to surround himself in that scent and never let go.

"Nice to meet you, welcome to the BAU," he said, shaking the young man's hand. When their skin touched, another shock of desire spiked through him. He wanted this man naked - now.

"Thanks, it's good to be here," Reid answered, barely making eye contact.

"Gideon, will you finish the tour? I'll join you shortly."

Aaron watched the two men leave, trying to make sense of what had just happened. But part of him knew exactly what happened. He just needed to face it. Even though Aaron was married. Even though he and Haley were trying to have a child. The truth was Spencer Reid was Aaron Hotchner's mate. And there was nothing he could do about it.
