An Unholy Alliance #4 (2.1) by Julie Lynn Hayes

“Where exactly are we going?” I was struggling to remain fully alert, fighting against the blood-induced haze of overindulgence. That’s not usually a problem vampires have… unless they’ve had too much to drink. Much like myself. For lack of a better analogy, think of all the humans who stuff themselves silly at one particular meal every November and then nod off after the consumption of the pumpkin pie. Except this was stronger, a force I couldn’t fight.

I can’t even swear my words were intelligible. They sounded like they were coming from far away, even to me. I’d wedged

Ancalagon: Chapter Forty-three by Cia Nordwell
 

The concept that four arms came in handy had occurred to me before, but being knocked off my feet when the ship lurched through the air hammered that home. Without the extra hand grabbing the bunk, I would have slammed my right temple right into the corner. I flopped over onto the mattress.  

“Are you all right?” Garjah stood with his leg spread, riding out the ship’s shudders.  

“You should sit down!”  

“I am fine. I’m sorry I forgot to tell you to brace yourself. You have changed so much I forget you don’t quite have the same bone and

An Unholy Alliance #2 (1.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Before I could respond, the stranger had scrambled out of the car and discreetly closed the door behind him(thank goodness for small favors, didn’t need the inhabitants of the farmhouse to make an unexpected appearance of their own), making his way as far as the hood, where he had the common sense to stop.

Mesmerized by the sight of the intruder, I suddenly realized I’d become so distracted that I hadn’t reined myself in nearly enough to avoid causing irreparable damage to my dinner, which was made obvious to me by the way he now hung limply

Ancalagon: Chapter Forty-one by Cia Nordwell
 

Garjah was still tense. He was still frowning even though he had me wrapped in his arms. As possessive as I was of him, he was of me. That was all it was.  

At least I hoped that was all it was. “What about what you need?”  

“You’re what I need.” Garjah stroked my face. “You’re changing everything; I want to make you comfortable.”  

I pushed into his caress. He leaned down, nuzzling my cheek and then kissing the corner of my lips. I turned, needing more, hungry for the taste of him more than the food he’d brought. On

Ancalagon: Chapter Forty by Cia Nordwell
 

“And you are mine,” he said.  

“Hmm?” I looked up at him, too blissed out to move. “What?”  

“You said mine.” He blinked lazy eyes at me. “We belong to each other now.”  

I hadn’t meant to say it out loud, but I was glad I did. For days I’d been on edge, like the skin I was in was too tight, my muscles quivering on the verge of an explosion. Inside I’d been just as big of a mess, emotionally and mentally. Now all I wanted to do was sleep. “Rest.” I stroked his chest and one thigh.  

The

Ancalagon: Chapter Thirty-nine by Cia Nordwell

I climbed up and slotted between his legs, gasping when his shaft stroked along mine before I could wrap my hands around them. How did he do that? My eyes threatened to roll back in my head. “You are so soft everywhere,” he rasped. “But this is so hard.”

“Uh-huh.” I ached to come already. I wouldn’t let him take me over like he had last time though. This time I was scenting him. I captured our shafts in two of my hands. His fluids and my clearer precome mingled already, easing the glide of my palms.

I hissed. “So

Ancalagon: Chapter Thirty-eight by Cia Nordwell
 

Bouncer was up and snarling, his rumble a deeper counterpoint to my pissed off hissing anger. I only wished I sounded that intimidating. It didn’t matter, I had a cerops to back me up, and once I figured out who had touched Garjah, I would hunt them down and together we’d rip off all four of their arms so they couldn’t go around touching other people who shouldn’t be touched by anyone but—  

The ramble in my brain didn’t end as I circled Garjah who stood very, very still. No, it only got more violent when I realized the scent

“You don’t need to be scared,” Garjah said. He hurried over to the bed and sat next to me. The bunk edge sank under his weight. I leaned against him. The scent was even better straight from the source.  

Timok stepped closer, and I snapped my head up. He eased back, raising his hands. “Okay, so I’m going to say the bonding is not yet complete.”  

“You think?” I wanted to snap, and I was probably shorter than I even thought that came out considering I couldn’t stop glaring at him.

Super Trooper #66 (15.3) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Everything had gone perfectly today, just as Evan hoped it would. It had been difficult to send Chan off to work looking like a wounded puppy because no one had acknowledged his birthday. But that would have given everything away, and he was sure his lover forgave him for that now.

Laksha had begun to bake as soon as Chan was out of sight. The result was the most beautiful carrot cake Evan had ever seen, completely with traditional fondant decorations. She seemed pleased with the praised he heaped on her, and helped him to prep for the food he was going to make for Chan’s birthday lunch. He couldn’t even pronounce the name of the main dish when he started, but with

Super Trooper #65 (15.2) by Julie Lynn Hayes

Chan’s unhappiness over the day’s events—or rather the lack thereof—grew even greater when he arrived at work to find it was just another ordinary day on the job. Not one happy birthday in the bunch, just business as usual. He tried hard not to be grumpy or morose, but he found that difficult to do when everyone else was just so full of smiles and sunshine.

He hadn’t brought a lunch, thinking someone would treat him for his birthday, as was the usual custom among his fellow employees. But when an offer wasn’t forthcoming, he finally decided what the heck, he’d just do something for himself. Why not? Even if no one else realized what day it was, he did.
