The Stormlords part 27 by Ravon Silvius

The ocean was huge.

The water lapped at Rowen’s toes, pricks of cold that multiplied and rushed up his legs as the water burbled up the sandy beach. The sand reminded him of his village after a windstorm, where sand from the south would blow up into the village and nearly bury the brush. The women would always complain as they swept it from the streets.

The only thing that swept this sand was the sea, ebbing and flowing. It reflected the morning sun, a riot of color and an alternation of cold and warmth. It reminded him of Kristoff.

Kristoff, who today would discover what the villagers believed he had done.

Moving Forward #29 (7.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

They took the elevator down to the next level, and followed Roger’s lead to the bar. It was filled with a less boisterous crowd than Partners. The slow smoky music seemed more conducive  than country tunes to the art of seduction. Marshall had little doubt there was a whole lot of that going on all around them in the rather sensual atmosphere.

“What’s your pleasure?” Roger asked, and he wouldn’t take no for an answer, so Lee said he’d stand the next round, and they all decided on boilermakers.

Marshall had never had one of those before. He watched Lee as he dropped

Innocence & Carnality: Part 39 by Mann Ramblings

Double Trouble: Chapter 68 by Jon Keys
Josh grabbed the halter’s lead rope just under the bulls chin and held it tight. Both this bull, and the one he’d put in the forward trailer compartment a few minutes earlier, seemed to be as tame as a family dog. Well, not exactly. The border collie they had was much more frantic. The pup raced back and forth beside the trailer as if she could help.
He reached the point where the bull had to step into the trailer, and he wasn’t budging. Josh braced his heals against the wooden floor, leaned backward, and heaved with all he had. Nothing like a ton of beef that doesn’t want to be moved. I’ll be damned.

Buy One – Get Two and Three, Chapter 12 By Carol Pedroso


Oliver watched the brothers exit the private room and saw how Toby slipped back onto his role as the Dom by separating himself from his brothers and walking slightly in front of them while Daniel kept an arm around Silas.

When Oliver met Toby’s eyes the other man nodded and headed for him.

“Sir, here is your sub back. With your permission I will pick him up from you at the end of the evening.” When Oliver nodded Toby turned to Daniel. “Come on I should return you to Master Carlos.”

Not for Me: Chapter 3 by Louise Lyons

No Flash: Chapter Twenty-four: by Cia Nordwell 

“Why don’t we go out? The three of us?”

 “Why don’t we stay in?” Evin was on the floor next to Micah who was sitting in just a diaper, his blocks and a ring stack in front of him. “I’ll make stew.”

Ben sat on the couch and worried about Evin, but he didn’t say anything else. He’d seen more and more signs of Evin’s unwillingness to leave the house. The last time he needed groceries, he did an online order. He said it was because Micah was running a low-grade fever and it was too wet and cold to

Evans Woodworking: Chapter 29 by Jim Dunaway

“Well, Ethan, you’re a bit of a medical mystery. We’re really confused as to what is happening with you. For some reason we can’t explain, there’s no sign of any disease whatsoever. There are no HIV antibodies in your bloodstream. For all intents and purposes, you’re completely, one-hundred percent healthy.”

Ethan looked at the doctor in shock. With an incredulous expression on his face, he said to the doctor, “Can you repeat that?”

“To put it simply, there’s not a thing wrong with you.”

Ethan was basically in shock as he tried to understand the significance of his words.

Selfish by Elyzabeth M. VaLey

 “You just don’t understand, do you?”

“What are you talking about?” He crossed his arms over his chest and cocked his head.

She fought the urge to roll her eyes by narrowing them instead. 

“I told you already. It’s over between us. I’ve had enough of this thing going on between us. You don’t want to label it as a relationship but it feels like one.”

“What? What are you talking about, Natalie?” He dropped his arms to his side, palms out. “I thought we were having fun. We talked about this when we started fooling around, a relationship between us is impossible.”

To Be Determined: Part 16 by Johayan

The plow had been a god-send for the trip, but even with the plow’s assistance, they were having difficulty. Caleb was starting to get highway hypnosis from following the backend of the plow and the constant swirl of snow. Brian was doing his best to keep Caleb on the road, but it was obvious when they were drifting out of the path that had been cleared as they started into 18 inches of snow that was more than four feet deep in drifts.
