In Pieces #15 (5.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Ryan had never heard a sound quite so glorious in his entire life.  The single note was plaintive and yet intense. As Ben’s voice began to rise in tone, the sound flowed around him and through him. It seemed to penetrate into the depths of Ryan’s soul, to places that had been untouched for a very long time. He couldn’t explain the feeling, but neither did he attempt to fight it. Rather, he embraced it.

He couldn’t keep from staring at Ben as he sang. Ben’s eyes had closed, an expression of utter serenity suffusing his face. Ryan thought he looked almost like an angelic choir boy.  Paradoxically, the single note was sensuous and enticing, producing an almost palpable ache inside of Ryan which was a far cry from angelic.

The Faery of Beacon Lake: Part 16 by Nephy Hart

Bran turned and pushed Owen gently onto his back. “I want to see your button,” he said, then proceeded to stroke his long fingers across Owen’s stomach, dipping into his belly button. “I love it.”

Owen moaned when Bran replaced his fingers with his tongue and lapped gently at the dimple. He stroked Bran’s hair, fighting the temptation to push his head a little lower.

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 9.3 By Carol Pedroso

Elder Simon watched the cat shifter bristling with amusement. There was nothing he liked better than rubbing cats up the wrong way and then sitting back to watch the show. The cat really seemed to be attached to the vampling. Although, after hearing their story a bond between two adults caring for a family in danger wasn’t so unconceivable.

He was looking forward to meeting the child, Fran. For one so Young to have such power was rare, and he hadn’t seen anything like it in centuries. The last had been…no he didn’t want to go down that particular memory lane, at least, not until the information needed.

Denied: Chapter Thirty-nine by Cia Nordwell

“What are you doing?” Captain finally looked down and seemed to realize that I was opening his uniform.

I tugged on the open edges of his jacket. “Come on.” I pulled him into the other room. The bunk was made—I had no idea when he found time to do that—but I was about to destroy the tightly tucked blankets. Gently, I pushed him down.

“Give us a minute,” I said to the crew member who looked up when the door started to whoosh shut. His eyebrows rose, but before he could say anything the door was closed.

“Kohen?”

An Offer I Could Not Refuse: Part 16 by Michael Mandrake

The moment I sensed my father’s spirit in the room, I jerked awake. I turned to the left, staring into the weary brown eyes of the man everyone had told me I’d resembled. Now, I looked nothing like Jacob Winston. Though our facial features were similar, I had fangs and claws. Traits that Jacob and the entire Winston family hated. Though they hadn’t tried to revolt recently, the spirit was still there. My clan had always had the feeling we would one day rise again.

“Not now.”

“No, I won’t allow it,” I said to him.

“How could you? My youngest child. The one I held in my arms only days before I was murdered? If anything, you should be angrier than your older brothers and sisters? Why have you betrayed me?”

Hearing his sad words, I closed my eyes tight. “Though I am sorry for hurting you, I will not apologize for what I’ve done. I fell in love…”

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 8.5 by Carol Pedroso

“Maybe the hunters were a coincidence,” Meg offered. “I mean just because if they were working for Cheryl they wouldn’t have blown up the cave. The cave in would have killed Fran and then Cheryl wouldn’t be able to use her.”

Kitryn nodded thoughtfully. “I think we need to work on the assumption they are working together until it’s proved otherwise. It wouldn’t do to discount the hunters and then have them appear out of nowhere when we least expect them.”

They all agreed and Meg said she was going to try and see what gossip she could pick up amongst the females of the den.

Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 8.4 by Carol Pedroso

Silence followed Kitryn’s explanation and everyone jumped when Elder Patrick slapped his hands down on the table.

“That woman thinks it’s okay to take other people’s powers? To help herself to more than fate decided she was capable of using? Who does she think she is? And to try and take a child? No, that will not be allowed.”

“Um, things may be worse.” The interruption came from a male further down the table.
Elder Patrick jerked his head up. “What do you mean Xander?”

“Well, I was informed on my way to this meeting that Seer Wanda is missing
