Adrift: Chapter 37 by J. Alan Veerkamp
Arad had no idea how to process his day with Roku. Most attracted strangers found it easier to get along the more time spent together, didn’t they? For Arad and Roku, each passing day tangled their lives into something far more complicated. Given the growing connection between them, it shouldn’t be so easy to drive them apart. A curious situation for two people so fond of one another.

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 20.2 by Carol Pedroso
Tristan was furious. however, it was a toss-up as to who he was more furious at, himself or his mate. How dare the fanged bloodsucker speak to him like that. Who did he think he was?

He wasn’t smart enough. He wasn’t strong enough. He was an embarrassment to the family name.
