Mine: Chapter Ten by Cia Nordwell 

“I’m not a glutton for punishment, so I’ll call Uncle Radford this weekend. I don’t want to talk to him after he’s had to teach a freshman class.”

“Trust me, I get it. You wouldn’t believe the lectures he gave me about proper behavior and appreciating that this streak allowed human werekin to pursue higher education.” Kraig covered the bandage around the bad wound on his wrist. “Not that I ever got to attend a class.”

“You don’t have to talk about that right now. Do you feel up to going for a walk in the garden? Or can we

Mine: Chapter Nine by Cia Nordwell 

“Let me find out what he knows,” Park said. “He’ll talk to me.”

“Is he a danger?” That was the biggest worry I had. I didn’t like this stranger showing up right after I found Kraig again. “I won’t tolerate any risk to the streak.”

“I don’t think so, but I’ll watch him closely.”

“Come over when you know more. I’m sure Kraig would like to spend more time with you. Tomorrow, though.” I was reining in my instincts as much as possible, but I chafed at the responsibilities taking me away from Kraig’s side. We deserved time together, but

Buy One, Get Two and Three: Chapter 23 by Carol Pedroso

Daniel

Daniel walked into the club and sighed as he looked around for his master. He wasn’t sure what to expect and that put him on edge. The last few days had been very tense at home. Silas had been stuck in the middle of the Daniel and Toby, who weren’t talking to each other.

Silas had finally had enough earlier in the day when Daniel had asked Silas, to ask Toby, to please pass the salt at dinner. Okay, so maybe he was being a drama queen, but really, did Silas have to point it out so loudly?

Demon: Chapter Twenty Six by Nephy Hart

My heart breaks that my prince should doubt me so. It breaks double that he should doubt himself. His loss of trust in me is hardly surprising as I kept from him an important secret, especially as I knew it would hurt his confidence when he discovered it. His lack of faith in himself is not only entirely unfounded but might very well be disastrous for us all. This is a crucial time for relations between our peoples and strong leadership is vital. I have no idea what went on within the Counsel chamber but I have no doubt my prince showed strong leadership. I saw it still in the way he dismissed his sister.

Double Trouble:: Chapter 72 by Jon Keys
 
Josh sat on the bleachers waiting for Danny’s turn. Why did we thought this was a good idea, and how did I end up at his first competition? Somehow the bull riding had seemed better than spending a day at the mall. He did not want to be the responsible parent in the junior rodeo circuit.
The dry wind whipped between the sheetmetal buildings and cooled Josh who was already warm from the morning sunshine. A second later it stirred the powered area dust before racing out the far side of the enclosure and left a taste of southwestern Oklahoma powder in Josh’s mouth. The late fall sun was hotter than normal, but the discomfort barely registered on him as he searched the crowd of bull riders.

Moving Forward #36 (8.4) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Marshall, Lee, and Roger weren’t the only ones heading down to the main deck. Everyone had gathered, interested in seeing what there was to see beneath the sea. The whole bottom of the ship was now transparent, and people ringed the viewing port, watching the fascinating tableau below.

Being taller, Marshall and Lee stood behind the others, rather than obstruct those who were shorter. They still had a somewhat decent view of what was going on in the ocean.

 Schools of bright orange and purple fish swam in synchronized grace about the beautiful coral reef which stretched below them.

Thirteen Black Cats: Chapter 2 by Louise Lyons

“Ash. Hey.”

I opened my eyes and squinted at a bright white ceiling. Nothing that clean could be a hotel room. I shifted my gaze to the left, where a bag of fluid dangled from a pole, a tube snaking down to the inside of my elbow. Fuck.

Slowly, I glanced the other way, seeking the source of the voice. I opened my mouth, but no sound came out.

“Cat got your tongue?” The words were teasing, but his brows furrowed with concern above melting chocolate eyes.

I licked my lips and tried again. “Billy.”

“How do you feel?”

To Be Determined: Part 21 by Johayan

Caleb was quickly returned to the here and now as Shawn called out to him and asked him to sit down. As he sat down, his emotions kept swirling. He was overjoyed that things seemed to be going so well for Shawn and see Bryan so happy…yet he was also torn in his love for Bryan and his lust for Shawn.


Shawn reached out a hand and motioned him closer.  Bryan turned to Caleb and smiled, indicating that he should sit closer to Shawn. As he scooted closer, Shawn took his hand and squeezed it just as he was squeezing Bryan’s hand.

Moving Forward #32 (7.6) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Marshall watched Lee with a growing amazement as he drizzled chocolate syrup along Marshall’s body, over the mounds of whipped cream. Half expecting the chocolate to be cold, he discovered it was room temperature, and far from unpleasant.

“Want a little shot of this?” Lee asked, once he’d saturated Marshall with the stuff.

“Hell yeah,” Marshall said.

“Open up,” Lee instructed.

Demon: Chapter Twenty Two by Nephy Hart

As the door closes on Tian, I turn on Jandra.

“What’s going on?”

Jandra smirks and I hate her. The only thing that stops me slapping it from her face is the knowledge that she is stronger than I, and would overcome me easily.

“Sit down dear. Would you like to play chess? That always calm you.”

“I don’t want to calm, Mother. I’m sick of being kept in the dark all the time. No one ever tells me anything.”

“Stop being such a child, Castien. No one’s interested in your tantrums.”
