Moving Forward #59 (14.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes
When they returned to their room, Lee called Room Service and ordered a bottle of Prosecco. “Want anything to eat with that?” he asked Marshall.
Marshall considered for a moment. He wasn’t really hungry now, but he might be later.
“Maybe some of that lava cake we had before?” Something sweet would hit the spot after making love.
“Sounds good to me.” Lee relayed the order, then hung up.
“What’s Prosecco?” Marshall asked.
“It’s like champagne, but sweeter,” Lee replied. “A little something special for our last night here.”
Lee pulled Marshall closer to him, circling his waist. “A special night for a special guy.”
Marshall warmed at Lee’s words. “Being with you is what makes everything special,” he said sincerely.
Buy One, Get Two and Three: Chapter 35 by Carol Pedroso
Silas slowed his pace as he approached Oliver’s office. What if Oliver had changed his mind? What if the Dom no longer wanted to put up with a damaged sub like him? What if…?

“Don’t be afraid. You’re safe.”
The soft voice doesn’t startle me, but I spin because, at last, there’s…something.
The woman is small and delicate. Long hair, flowing over narrow shoulders, is woven with bright flowers as is the girdle of a robe that is so sheer it conceals nothing of what lies beneath. She holds out her hand and I take it. What else can I do?
I paced back and forth across the living room floor, but it wasn’t enough. My mind raced, being trapped inside four walls was only making it worse. I picked up my phone and sent Park a text. That way if he and Kraig came back they would know where I was. It also reminded me that I needed to get Kraig a phone. We may not be parted that often, or very far, but he needed a way to get in touch with me if he needed me.
Once I hit the grass in the backyard, I removed my shoes.
Regeneration: Chapter 1, part 2 by Louise Lyons
I exercised until I was exhausted, then showered and dressed in fresh clothes. I’d just finished when another sound drew my attention. The whine of a ship passed overhead, and I grabbed my pistol again and raced to the door, my heart pounding. I opened the door carefully and gazed in all directions before I decided it was safe to step outside. The creatures didn’t like the sun and it currently blazed down onto the dusty plain surrounding the facility, hellishly bright and painful to the eyes. I walked a few steps from the building, holding onto the cable attached
