Here Kitty Kitty: Chapter 14.1, by Carol Pedroso

Simon froze, he couldn’t have heard right.

He went to pull away, but Kitryn held on to the back of his head and made him still again.

“No, please, don’t move just, feed and listen.”

Simon settled down and tried to relax as Kitryn kept talking, his soft breath brushing Simon’s ear.

“I know you don’t understand, but I promise I will try to explain. As O’Connor said, different shifters recognize their mates in different ways.

“My breed recognizes our mates by scent. Your scent was all over that cave in the mountains. My cat was tired and in pain

Denied: Chapter Fifty-four by Cia Nordwell

The Captain’s quarters also became his war room. I had nowhere to retreat to be alone, and the stress of it was wearing on me. I went from being alone and desperately wishing for the touch, sound, and scent of other beings to freedom that was bearable only because of my small quarters, to the bliss of sharing a room with Captain for a short time.

Now, as I tried to find some small way to handle the crowd by curling into the corner of the room so two walls surrounded me and my back was safely covered, Captain, Deke,

Denied: Chapter Fifty-one by Cia Nordwell

Mackinack was going to be dangerous. Deke wasn’t happy Captain didn’t take more people with him, but their argument seemed like something they said before and were saying again just to say it. I watched them but tried to make it subtle, so they wouldn’t know I was watching them.

“At least you’re going,” Deke grumbled. “He won’t let me go after last time.”

“What happened last time?” I asked. I took the new knife Deke handed over.

“This one doesn’t have a paralytic, by the way. It wasn’t a big deal. I just broke a few appendages off this

In Pieces #21 (7.1) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Ryan had meant to stay awake until Ben returned from his tête-à-tête with Cameron. There were so many things he wanted to say, things he wanted to hear.  Things he wanted to do. His libido was racing a mile a minute just thinking about Ben. About finishing what they’d begun so long ago. Ten years was a whole lot of anticipation.

Opening his eyes to find sunlight bouncing into the bedroom told him he’d failed at staying awake rather miserably. The question was would he find himself alone again, or if he looked across the room, would he see Ben asleep in the other bed?

The answer to that question was both familiar and warm. And it was pressed up against him.

Tales of the Cabin – Part 1 by Johayan

It was another mindless day in the cube farm. At most other companies, I’d have an office.  Not a corner suite, but an office none the less.  As I looked at my schedule for the rest of the week, all I saw was meeting after meeting.  I was glad I was going on vacation in a couple of weeks.

While I enjoy my job, it’s not the most intellectually stimulating job.  The only excitement was the breaking news that someone had purchased a winning lottery ticket at the convenience store in the lobby.

Sweet Betrayal Part Two by Michael Mandrake

After three human months of staying out of human sight, I felt it time to introduce my new lover to the world. I’d made a spot for him as CFO of the company and found a new position for the current one elsewhere. Aaron knew everything about this job and would be able to perform it affectively. It was time for a change anyway because his predecessor and I hadn’t seen things eye to eye as of late.

“Lover.” As I walked out of my office after sending notice to all my other presidents about the change in my company, I called Aaron.

“Yes, Ravi?”

Hearing the new alto tone in his voice brought a smile to my face. Not that it hadn’t before, but becoming a vampire made Aaron even a hundred times more attractive.

I ambled into our bedroom, watching my lover dress in a three-piece blue suit with matching tie. His lighter eyes met my gaze and he flashed a toothy grin. “How do I look?”

“Amazing.” I strode over to him, wrapping both arms around his waist. I pressed a light kiss to his cheek. “This blue is a good contrast to your eyes. The suit fits you so well, I wish to tear it off you.”
