Mine! Part Two: Chapter Eleven by Cia Nordwell

“You have to know how much I want you around,” I said. I snagged Ritch’s arm and turned him to face me. “Ritch….”

He looked at me with so much trust in his eyes. Maybe I had done something right. He didn’t look away, and there was no need to fight for dominance because he wasn’t a bonded werekin. My tiger had nothing but a need to curl around him and purr.

“I want to be clear.” I ran my hand up his shoulder and then cupped the back of his neck. Ritch’s eyes flared wide and his mouth dropped

Evans Woodworking: Chapter 36 by Jim Dunaway

“I have something to tell you, and you’re probably going to think I’ve completely lost my mind. You can’t say anything to anyone about what I’m going to tell you.”


“Let’s get back to my house and get into some dry clothes first. I suspect you’re going to need a drink when I tell you.”


It’s about my dreams. They’re…” Ethan broke off as Ryan suddenly appeared out of thin air.

“What the…” “Oh shit!” Jordan and Ryan exclaimed simultaneously before Ryan disappeared again.

Jordan sat there open-mouthed as Ethan handed him a glass of water. “What the hell was that?”

Double Trouble: Chapter 103 by Jon Keys
Danny sat at the dinner table with Trent and Josh flanking him. He also looked about as unhappy as it was possible for a person to look. His face was a toxic mix of righteous anger and teenage angst. Josh wished Trent had already taken care of it before he got home, but as it seemed to go too often recently, Trent had decided to wait until all of them were home. Apparently, Samantha had showed up from school, saw the situation and ran. She’d apparently used some excuse of going to a study session, but Josh knew what happened. One look at the family meeting expression and she’d ran.

The Sheriff #4 (2.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Dustin cleared his throat. He must have misheard what the man said. His luck didn’t run that way, and he sure as hell didn’t need any more misunderstandings with hot men. He’d had enough of those to last a while. “I’m sorry, what game system were you interested in?”

The man addressed as Jordy cocked his head and regarded Dustin with what could only be regarded as a smoldering look. “What kind of games do you play?”

That wasn’t helping any, depending on what this guy meant by games.

The longer Dustin stared at his customer’s lips, the more he wished he could taste them—at least once.

Buy One, Get Two and Three, Chapter 49, by Carol Pedroso


Daniel felt like he was floating. He was comfortable and could feel Silas curled up behind him, gently snoring into his neck. He stiffened at the sound of the door opening, only relaxing when he recognized Oliver’s whispering voice.

“They look cute, don’t they?” Oliver was saying.

“Yeah, so innocent too. Like butter wouldn’t melt.” Carlos’ voice agreed. “Let’s let them sleep. I’m sure they’re exhausted.”

The door shut and Daniel closed his eyes.

“They’re sweet. But, did they really think they could sneak in and us not realize.” Silas’ voice sounded amused.

The Waterlord Prequel part 14 by Ravon Silvius

“Shut up, I’m fine. A…splinter.” Nathan looked at his finger for a moment before returning his hands to his pockets. He glared at Tom again as if daring him to say anything, and when the younger boy didn’t, he turned back down the hall. “C’mon, we’re almost at the end of this place. I think there’s a door up ahead.”

 The Secret Sanctuary: Part 6 by Johayan

Half way through the session, I was getting tired but I was also very glad that Kate hadn’t gotten him. Chris was too young to be as knotted up and tense as he was today.

Knowing the hamstring was a problem, I changed up my usual routine and started with Chris face down on the table. There were a couple of times I thought I heard a couple of light snores but given how tense he was, I didn’t think he’d actually fallen to sleep.

As I finished up with his feet, I quietly said “Chris?”.
