Scandalous Affairs

Layna Pimentel

Three sensual tales of undeniable passion.

 

Scandal at Vauxhall

When the haute ton learns of a promiscuous tryst between the Dowager Duchess of Brimley and the Marquess of Stoughton, their credibility is at stake. They soon discover that nothing in life is simple, nor private, and all is fair in love and war.

A Sinful Education

Stunned and dismayed at discovering the arrangement between her mother and the Duke of Downsbury, Lady Emily Thompson searches for a way to break the marriage pact. Will she find a way out of marrying the duke, or will she find herself in the same predicament as the previous duchess? Which is dead.

Her Deviant Lord

En-route to a hunting trip after over-indulging the night before, the Earl of Wendelhem endures a frightful, and terribly embarrassing, swoon. He has seen a ghost, and her name is Cordelia Waite, the Duchess of Downsbury. Yet, his former mistress refuses to accept her dismissal and discovers the duchess is still alive. Second chances have never been more precarious.

Cat Groove by Megan Slayer – Out Now!

He’s found his mate and his groove, but he’s got to convince her they belong together.

Watching his woman with another man just about killed Roman. His heart beat for Jessa. His ability to switch over to his human form has allowed him to show her his other side, but will he scare her away? He’s willing to work his grove in order to win the heart of the woman he loves.

 

EXCERPT:

 Copyright Megan Slayer 2014

 

“Damn it, Roman, get back here. I’m not very in love with you right now.” Jessa tossed the towel onto the floor, then raced after her black cat. “Whoever said he was calm should’ve had to bathe him.” With him speeding ahead of her, she sprinted down the hallway.

“Come back here.” Her hair flew in her eyes and her chest hurt from the scratches inflicted moments earlier when she’d first introduced him to the water.

Roman backed himself into a corner and hissed, his gold eyes blazing.

“Don’t make me have to tackle you.” Jessa crouched and took her best offensive stance. She counted to three, then lunged. An earth-shattering screech echoed in the room, but she managed to grab him. When she looked down into her curled arms, the cat struggled, but couldn’t free himself.

“You are a brat — cute, but a brat.” She kept him tight in her grasp and marched back to the bathroom. “If you weren’t one gigantic flea, this wouldn’t be necessary.”

Upon entering the bathroom, she kicked the door shut. “Now try and get away.” She glanced around for where the cat shampoo had landed. “This won’t take long.”

The cat scampered from her arms and skidded on the rug. He collided with the bathroom door. When he fell back, instead of a black cat, a man — a naked man — lay sprawled in his place.

Jessa dropped the towel she’d picked up and sat down hard on the edge of the tub. “What the hell just happened?” She knew what she’d seen… her cat had morphed into a man.

The guy shook his head, his dark hair ruffling with each shake, then glanced over his shoulder. “Now do you see why I don’t need a flea bath?”

“I don’t understand what I’m seeing.” Jessa balled her fists. What the hell was she supposed to do? Locked in a bathroom with a strange man. “What’s going on here?”

“I’ve got a knot on my head from the door.” The guy turned around and rested against the wooden door. “Remind me not to run full blast away from you.” He rubbed his forehead. “But I’m kind of glad this happened. I was tired of being a cat.”

Megan Slayer – It’s Always Fun to Squirm

Forever, a vampire series by B.J. McCall

My FOREVER series includes ETERNITY FACTOR, NIGHT SINS and NIGHTGLOW. Three books about the Cemetery vampires.

Signing off, B.J.

 

FOREVER 1: ETERNITY FACTOR

Once accepted by society, vampires are now considered unsafe to live among humans, but that doesn’t stop Azza from sneaking out of the Cemetery for a midnight party. Although the penalties are serious, nothing is better than a little intimate action with a hot-blooded human. Azza spots the hunk she wants and one sniff of his blood has her hooked.

Jak Walker is immediately attracted to the pale beauty he meets at a Vamp Rave. Things get hot and heavy, and when confronted with her true nature, Jak wants more than a one-night stand.

 The eternity factor isn’t the only problem confronted the lovers. All the fun stuff is illegal.

FOREVER 2: NIGHT SINS

Night is made for sin and vampires rule the dark.

 An officer for the Dead Souls Agency, Harper Croix’s job is vampire enforcement. One night her job takes a lethal turn, and Harper has a showdown with an old one. He’s nothing like the rabid bloodsuckers she burns, arrests and destroys. He’s handsome, strong, disciplined and he wants revenge.

Egan wants Agent Croix to suffer for her sins against his kind. Revenge is a dish best served cold, but Croix is hot and tasty. One encounter leads to another. Enemies become lovers.

 Harper has sworn to enforce the vampire laws, not break them. An affair with a vampire is reckless. Falling in love is crazy stupid. Egan is irresistible.

FOREVER 3: NIGHTGLOW

Cate wants what Nightglow prevents, up close and personal with a vampire.

Nightglow is about to be introduced to the world. Dunn wants freedom for his kind and he’s willing to walk the runway once again, wearing the heat sensitive, ultraviolet jewelry that makes physical contact with humans too hot to handle.

The mayor wants Nightglow to put the city back on the map. Acting as the city’s liaison, it’s Cate Auburn’s job to make the premiere of Nightglow a success. There’s only one hitch. Drop-undead-gorgeous Dunn is drawing her to the dark side. She’s never had a vampire lover, but her life is about to take a dramatic turn.

Cate is lush, hot and pulsing with everything Dunn wants. Loving her comes easy. Forever is difficult.

DungeonCrawl by Mychael Black

Hey, y’all! Thanks for letting us Changeling folks take over for the day. :D

Gaming is in my blood. My first system was an Atari 800. My all-time favorite games were Pole Position (a racing game) and Miner 2049er (hard to really explain that one… but here’s a link to a vid of level one: http://youtu.be/1dK22LzWDVU ). After the Atari, we had an Apple IIGS, and my favorite game was Defender of the Crown ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N19AFQEmTpE ). From there, we had a Nintendo and a Super NES. Now, I do my gaming on a laptop and a desktop PC. Oh, and a tablet and a Smartphone and a Kindle and… Well, you get the idea.

So it was only a matter of time before I got the notion to write a story about gaming. Thus… the DungeonCrawl series was born! There are six books, and the first two are out now:

DungeonCrawl1CoverDungeonCrawl 1: Loading, Please Wait

Gamer Elijah Burrows is a self-professed loner. Disowned by his parents for being gay, he takes solace in his video games. Out of all his favorites, his newest one — DungeonCrawl — is swiftly rising to take the number one spot for him. When a lightning strike hits his house, knocking out the power, Elijah is anything but happy.

Lack of electricity is the last thing Elijah is worried about the second he steps foot out his front door.

What happens when a gamer finds himself stuck in the world of his fantasies? And how the hell does he survive without the aid of a mouse and keyboard?

DungeonCrawl2DungeonCrawl 2: Patch Day

Gamer Elijah Burrows has rather seamlessly taken over the life of his game character, Elian Surgis, in the world of Timiria. Alongside his lover, the lupine mage Sarin Eckhert, Elijah leads survivors of Sarin’s mystical order through the wilds of the province of Tasmorum. They manage to stay just one step ahead of Timiria’s monarch, King Mirov, who seeks to destroy every magic-wielding soul connected to the Labyrinthine Order.

From encounters with a mysterious group of traders on the road, to a revelation of epic proportions, it’s a miracle Elijah has any time to explore his relationship with Sarin. Then Fate throws a wrench into the mix: the appearance of another “traveler” — another gamer stuck in the game world Elijah now calls home. But this particular gamer has ulterior motives that have nothing to do with the Order’s survival.

Excerpt from DungeonCrawl 1: Loading, Please Wait

Thunder shook the windows and startled the ever-loving hell out of Elijah Burrows. He paused the game and went to look outside. The rain hadn’t even started and lightning already flashed nearby, lighting up the night sky. He sighed. He loved storms, but this area was notorious for power grid issues during heavy lightning.

He wandered back over to his desk, saved his game and exited the program. At least he wouldn’t lose his progress. The quest he’d been on was annoying, to say the least, but it was a necessary step along the main story line.

DungeonCrawl had only been out for a week, and Elijah couldn’t tear himself away from it. The dynamic world reminded him of games like Skyrim and several massive multiplayer games he’d played over the years. He’d often wondered what life would be like in one of those games. It had to be better than his life right now, in this world.

He opened up a browser and checked his email. Most of it was junk, with the occasional digest from one gaming group or another mixed in. He scanned the messages, clicking the checkbox to delete each one as he went. He stopped and stared at one message from an address he never expected to see again. Almost dreading to read it, he opened it up anyway.

Elijah,

I received word that you were spotted in one of… those places. As per our arrangement, you were to never show your face in such a way. It reflects poorly on me and Delilah. If you expect to continue receiving financial assistance, then you will refrain from drawing attention to yourself. My reputation is of paramount importance, and Delilah will be ostracized from her social circle should anyone discover our connection to you. Cease and desist immediately.

– Edmond Burrows, Esq.

Elijah couldn’t hit delete fast enough.

He’d been so careful to avoid cameras and anyone who he thought might know the Burrows. He’d stopped calling them his parents two years ago when they’d announced his lifestyle did not suit theirs or their expectations. The pain of them paying him to become a recluse had worn off, but no amount of money helped the loneliness.

Being the only child of the city’s most prominent politician had once held perks beyond imagining. Now Elijah wished he’d been adopted. How the fuck could he be related to such cretins?

He closed the browser and sighed. No point in thinking about it now. The “financial assistance” paid for everything: food, clothing, bills. He was still surprised they’d put him in a house they owned. What would the neighbors say if they knew he was a dirty, disgusting, sinning homosexual?

Oh, and celibate. Hell, at this rate, Elijah figured he’d reverted to being a virgin all over again.

Another boom of thunder shook the house, and lightning struck swiftly after. Elijah started shutting down the computer. The last thing he needed was to fry the damn thing. It was his only solace.

Just as soon as the screen went black, the rest of the house did, too.

“Damn it!”

Elijah grabbed his cell phone and turned on the flashlight app. He made his way carefully through the pitch black living room, praying the light from his phone found the furniture before his bare feet did.

When he reached the kitchen, he rummaged for matches and a candle in one of the junk drawers. He’d been raised to always be prepared — probably the only good thing to come out of his childhood. He found a candle and nestled the short taper in one of the empty silver candlesticks on the dining room table. After lighting it, he turned off the phone app.

Rain pounded the windows. It looked like the Biblical Flood outside as water turned the normally pristine yard into a swamp. More thunder rumbled and lightning lit up the sky. Elijah went to the front door and opened it.

He nearly dropped the candle. “What… the… fuck?”

Elijah stared at the world beyond his front door. Last he checked, he lived in a cul-de-sac in a glitzy neighborhood.

This was not a neighborhood.

Trees surrounded the house and moonlight shone through the canopy, casting pockets of silvery light on the forest floor. Nocturnal animals moved around, unseen but heard, going about their usual night routines. Elijah wandered a few feet from the house, onto a well-worn footpath wet from rain. The trail led deeper into the woods. When he turned, the candle hit the ground, snuffed out by damp leaves.

The house he’d lived in for two years was gone.

Free Read – Fae Romance – The Dangers of Fairy Compacts by Katey Hawthorne

Hey all, and good afternoon! I’ve got a couple of books to blab about today, but I’m gonna start with a free read, because who doesn’t need some fairy erotic romance on a holiday weekend (if you’re in the US–if you’re not, just a weekend)?

Exactly. It’s unthinkable.

Fairy Compacts #1: The Dangers of Fairy Compacts

When Aeron heard the summons from the mortal realm, he couldn’t resist. The voice, the one that had been echoing through his dreams since he was just a boy, the one everyone thought meant he was going mad just like his mother, was real. And it was mortal.
Aeron stepped through the tear in the worldfabric to meet his destiny. Instead, he found a shy young forest-priest with halting speech and a ridiculous smile–who claimed to know absolutely nothing about why his voice had been stuck in Aeron’s head for decades. Not to mention why they both have the strange feeling they’ve been bound, somehow, for a very long time.
Fairy Compacts is the story of two men, one fae, one mortal, who share a terrible history of which neither is aware. Whether or not their budding affection for one another can overcome the shock of finding out the truth, only time will tell. But this is for certain: one should never make fairy compacts.

FOREVER 3 by B.J. McCall (adult excerpt)

FOREVER is my urban fantasy vampire series. The premise of the series is – FOR VAMPIRES, EVERYTHING THAT IS FUN IS ILLEGAL. The books in the series are Eternity Factor, Night Sins and the soon to be released Nightglow. I wish I had the cover to share, but the artwork is still in progress.

My third excerpt is a sneak peek of Nightglow.

 

FOREVER 3 – NIGHTGLOW

Nightglow is about to be introduced to the world. Dunn wants freedom for his kind and he’s willing to walk the runway once again, wearing the heat sensitive, ultraviolet jewelry that makes physical contact with humans too hot too handle.

 The mayor wants Nightglow to put the city back on the map. Acting as the city’s liaison, it’s Cate Auburn’s job to make the premier of Nightglow a success. Only one hitch, drop-undead-gorgeous Dunn is drawing her to the dark side. She’s never had a vampire lover, but her life is about to take a dramatic turn.

 Cate is lush, hot and pulsing with everything Dunn wants. Loving her comes easy. Forever is difficult.

 

 

SNEAK PEEK

 

“A vampire? Here, tonight in city hall?” Cate Auburn shot out of her chair “Without a Dead Souls agent present? Forgive me, Mr. Mayor, but isn’t that risky?” Foolish was a better description, but Cate held her tongue. “Perhaps you should call the DSA?”

“Calm down, Cate. An armed agent isn’t necessary. Nick Marcus has vouched for the vampire.”

Cate had worked for Edwin Lynch for three years. Just shy of sixty, Lynch was good at his job. His gray hair, silver tongue and distinguished appearance made him very popular with the residents of Bright Center. As his senior assistant, Cate was accustomed to long hours and midnight meetings, but if Nick Marcus was bringing a vampire to city hall something unusual was afoot.

Nick Marcus was the grandson of the legendary Orvin Marcus and the sole heir of Marcus Designs. One of a small group of city residents that had managed to hold onto their fortunes despite the decades of economic depression, Marcus had supported Lynch’s bid for mayor. Lynch owed Marcus, but vampires were dangerous.

“If you’re frightened, I won’t force to you to stay.”

Cate stiffened her spine. Good paying jobs were rare and Cate wanted the mayor to see her as indispensible. If meeting a vampire increased her value she’d have to tough it out.

“We’ll need another chair.” Cate crossed the room and picked up one of the armless chairs bracketing a console table. She placed it slightly to one side of the mayor’s desk. Meeting a vampire up close and personal was exciting, but one had to remember the threat they posed to the living.

“Thank you, Cate.”

“What’s this meeting about?”

“Marcus has a new project. He wouldn’t tell me the details, but Nick swears his newest design will be a smash and will put Bright Center back on the map.”

Before the worldwide economic crash, Bright Center was a thriving, robust city. Once Bright Center was dubbed the city of lights, but now the locals called it Blight. The city’s skyscrapers were mostly vacant and at night the windows were dark. Business was stagnant and unemployment was at fifty percent. The mayor had promised jobs and an economic turnaround. Perhaps Marcus’ new project would help. But why was Marcus bringing a vampire?

The mayor glanced at his watch. “Our guests should be arriving momentarily at my private entrance. I’d like you to meet them.”

“I’d be honored. It’s not everyday I get to escort a vampire through city hall.”

“Nick assures me that Dunn is a gentleman, but keep your phone in your pocket.”

“A gentleman vampire.” She patted the pocket of her suit jacket. “I guess I don’t need to have the Dead Souls Agency on speed dial.”

Cate exited through a side door and entered a hallway. She passed the executive washroom and the mayor’s private lounge, continuing another thirty feet to a stairwell door. City hall was an architectural masterpiece and Cate loved working in the building. How ironic was it that the place was designed and built by vampires who now were imprisoned in the windowless cement structure called the Cemetery.

Two flights down, she reached the mayor’s private street entrance.

When the outside buzzer rang, Cate touched the security code into a keypad. She opened the door and Nick Marcus stepped into the lighted stairwell. Thirty something, Marcus was good looking with wavy brown hair and brown eyes. She’d met him before, but had no idea if he’d remember her. “Welcome, Mr. Marcus. I’m Cate Auburn, Mayor’s Lynch assistant.”

Nick shook her extended hand. “Miss Auburn, it’s good to see you again. This is my friend, Dunn.”

For the first time in her life she was face-to-face with a vampire. Her pulse leaped and her underarms dampened. “Nice to meet you, Mr. Dunn.”

“Just Dunn,” he said, stepping inside.

Cate gasped. She’d expected an evil face and black soulless eyes, not drop undead gorgeous. He stood about six feet and wore a black tailored suit that fit his athletic build. His black hair was cropped short on the sides and swept up in a contemporary style that looked effortless. His face was classic, his white skin flawless and his cheekbones high. Dark brows were slashed above a pair of glinting midnight blue eyes that sucked her in and held her fast.

 

NIGHTGLOW will be available from Changeling Press on May 29, 2014

FOREVER 2 by B.J. McCall (adult excerpt)

FOREVER is my urban fantasy vampire series. The premise of the series is – FOR VAMPIRES, EVERYTHING THAT IS FUN IS ILLEGAL. The books in the series are Eternity Factor, Night Sins and the soon to be released Nightglow.

My second excerpt is from Night Sins.

 

 

Night is made for sin and vampires rule the dark.

 An officer for the Dead Souls Agency, Harper Croix’s job is vampire enforcement. One night her job takes a lethal turn, and Harper has a showdown with an old one. He’s nothing like the rabid bloodsuckers she burns, arrests and destroys. He’s handsome, strong, disciplined and he wants revenge.

Egan wants Agent Croix to suffer for her sins against his kind. Revenge is a dish best served cold, but Croix is hot and tasty. One encounter leads to another. Enemies become lovers.

Harper has sworn to enforce the vampire laws, not break them. An affair with a vampire is reckless. Falling in love is crazy stupid. Egan is irresistible.

PRAISE FOR NIGHTS SINS

“I enjoyed the story, it’s very well written and with pretty deep characters. The relationship between the main characters seems natural and I like how both Egan and Harper find love in a world filled with misery.”

Dolce Amore Reviews by Tash,

5 couples/Excellent

EXCERPT

Seeing the vampires, the DSA agent lit up her UV wand and took a defensive stance. The cameraman turned the lens toward the puddle of blood.

“Noah, stop!” Egan scrambled down the fire escape. “Stop, it’s a setup.”

The bangers hissed and instead of stopping. Noah ran at the agent.

Egan leaped to the street and raced after the teenager. Before he caught up with the kid, the DSA agent hit Noah right in the face with a beam of UV light. The kid screamed, a horrible wail of pain that tore at Egan’s heart. Noah fell to the asphalt. The bangers went for the blood, falling to their knees to slurp the nourishment off the street.

The agent spun around to attack the bangers, turning her back on Egan. Running full out, Egan slammed into the agent and sent her flying. She hit the asphalt hard, losing her burner. The weapon slid along the asphalt out of her reach.

The blond newsman was speaking excitedly as the cameraman filmed the event.

The DSA agent rolled to her knees and pulled a weapon. The bangers, blood running down their chins, sprang to their feet. The agent fired, hitting the young vampires in the chest. As they dropped, she pumped two more shots into each of them. Six shots. Instead of using a weapon that fired thin silver bullets that debilitated a vampire, she’d used wooden bullets. This agent was out for the instant kill.

The agent turned and fired, hitting Noah in the chest, twice. His screams ceased and his body convulsed, then stilled.

The newsman was talking into the microphone, giving a verbal blow-by-blow of the action. “Fearless Agent Harper Croix has destroyed three vampires. Only one remains. Her weapon is trained on the tall, fanged creature.”

Creature?

Egan wanted to fly at the newsman and snap off his pretty head. Instead, he scooped up Noah and locked gazes with Agent Croix. Egan knew her weapon had a nine-bullet clip. An excellent shot, the agent had one bullet left.

Pointing the microphone at Egan, the newsman stepped in front of the agent, blocking her shot. “Speak to the people, vampire. Tell the public how you feel. Tell us your name.”

Egan ignored the newsman and retreated, walking backward and keeping an eye on Agent Harper Croix. He’d remember that name.

The agent scrambled to her feet and pushed the newsman aside. “Surrender, bloodsucker! Or face the same fate as your friends.”

The cameraman swung his lens back and forth to film the showdown.

Egan had to admire her. She wasn’t drenched in sweat like the men, and she wasn’t backing down. He let Noah’s head drop back, exposing his burned face to the camera. “His name is Noah, Agent Croix. I don’t want you to forget.”

Tossing Noah’s dead body over his shoulder, Egan leapt toward the fire escape and grabbed the metal ladder. He climbed, moving fast. A bullet zinged past his head. Drawing on his strength and power, he jumped from platform to platform, without touching a stair.

He was in a race for his life. He had to reach the roof before the agent lit up the fire escape with the ultraviolet floodlights mounted on the roof of her vehicle. The fear of being burned spurred him upward.

Reaching the top, Egan jumped onto the roof and dropped. Like a shot, UV light lit up the building and the area above him. On his knees, Egan dragged Noah across the rooftop as far away from the lights as possible.

He laid out Noah, said goodbye to the boy and left the area. Sunrise would cremate the remains. Sunset would bring Egan back to the streets for revenge.

FOREVER 1 by B.J. McCall (adult excerpt)

FOREVER is my urban fantasy vampire series. The premise of the series is – FOR VAMPIRES, EVERYTHING THAT IS FUN IS ILLEGAL. The books in the series are Eternity Factor, Night Sins and the soon to be released Nightglow.

My first excerpt is from Eternity Factor.

Once accepted by society, vampires are now considered unsafe to live among humans, but that doesn’t stop Azza from sneaking out of the Cemetery for a midnight party. Although the penalties are serious, nothing is better than a little intimate action with a hot-blooded human. Azza spots the hunk she wants and one sniff of his blood has her hooked.

Jak Walker is immediately attracted to the pale beauty he meets at a Vamp Rave. Things get hot and heavy, and when confronted with her true nature, Jak wants more than a one-night stand.

The eternity factor isn’t the only problem confronted the lovers. All the fun stuff is illegal.

EXCERPT

“Why do we have to dress up?”

Azza glanced at her friend, Reeni. The black leather lace-up bodice emphasized the vamp’s cleavage. Shiny black skin-pants and high-heeled boots displayed Reeni’s long legs. Azza was dressed in a similar costume, but her bodice was blood red and she wore four-inch, red stiletto heels. “We need to blend in with the crowd. Thanks to the movie, Vamp Party, humans are having these raves. The downside is these costumes. They think we actually run around in leather and capes.”

Reeni tugged at the black laces crisscrossing her generous breasts. “They would be wrong.”

They hurried along the narrow sidewalk, heading toward a warehouse, the site of tonight’s event. A man in a black, red-lined cape swept past them.

“At least we don’t have to look like that,” Azza said.

“These boots are killing my feet.”

Reeni preferred pink flip-flops to high-heels.

“Be patient,” Azza said. “We’re almost there. This party is loaded with horny humans and fortunately for us illegal sex with vampires is the current rage.”

“Yeah, they get fined and we’re thrown in jail.”

They had already broken the law by leaving the Cemetery, one of three designated urban vampire zones, after nightfall. The government had passed a slew of restrictive laws to protect the human population. Breaking the law had serious consequences.

“That’s why we can’t get caught, Reeni. Don’t bite anyone.”

“Yeah. Yeah. Getting caught outside will get you restricted. Having sex will get you incarcerated. Taking blood will get you executed. I know the rules.”

Stepping inside the warehouse, Azza took in the scene. Rock music blasted from huge speakers, a band called Red Death played on multi-level scaffolding and gyrating bodies filled the dance floor. Humans were clustered in small groups, some standing at a long bar constructed of planks and others sitting in plastic chairs around folding tables. The raves moved from warehouse to rooftop to private parking lots, set up and break down only taking minutes to prevent the DSA from busting the event. The Dead Souls Agency enforced the vampire laws.

The party was in full swing and the delicious scent of hot blood hung in the air.

“Take a deep breath.”

Reeni hissed and licked her fangs. “Hot human blood on a warm summer night. Smells like satisfaction.”

Azza grabbed Reeni’s forearm. “Remember the rules. No taking of blood. No fucking them to death.”

“I got the message the last two times you told me.”

“As tempting as it is to bite them, control yourself and choose one who has a strong heart.”

Reeni tried to pull her arm away, but Azza held on. “We meet here in four hours. We have to sneak back into the Cemetery before dawn.”

The vampires had modified and reinforced an old rail tunnel beneath the Cemetery, gaining secret access to the human zone.

“Got it.”

“Don’t fuck up.”

“Can I go now?”

Azza released Reeni’s arm. “Have fun.”

Dragonfire Moments by B.J. McCall (adult moment five)

Thanks for coming to the Staying At Home party. Today, I’m posting special moments from my Dragonfire series. This hot moment is from Dragonfire5: Caught.

A quest has fallen upon Trynt Andrak’s shoulders, tearing him away from everything he loves, but it’s a matter of clan honor.

For Adatha Krytt there is only one dragon, but he has vanished leaving her to pursue her dream of becoming a dragon warrior. Duty is everything until the day comes when Trynt’s quest becomes Adatha’s mission.

His honorable quest has made him a thief. To catch a thief, she must track down the dragon she loves.

Can she fulfill her mission without breaking her heart?

 

HOT MOMENT from CAUGHT

“When are you coming back?”

“I can’t return until I have fulfilled the quest.”

“The head’s been missing for two hundred years, and no one has fulfilled the stupid quest!”

He squared his shoulders. “I can’t dishonor my clan. The task is now mine. I must find the dragon’s head.”

She didn’t think about the consequences but reacted to the fire that had been burning in her heart for two long years. Adatha shifted, shrinking in size. Horns, scales, wings and tail disappeared. Cool wind caressed her bare skin and lifted the strands of her long, blonde hair.

Trynt gasped. “Adatha?”

Forgetting her natural state, she ran across the roof to the edge of the statue’s wing and reached out. “Help me up.”

He grasped her hands and lifted her onto the statue’s wing.

“You can’t leave me.”

He hesitated for a heartbeat, then pulled her into his arms. He held her fast and sure, yet his calloused hands were gentle upon her flesh. Trynt buried his face in her neck, and an anguished groan tore from his throat.

“Promise me you’ll come back for me,” she whispered.

Shoulders shaking, he lifted his head and looked into her eyes. “Say goodbye, Adatha, and get on with your life.”

She gripped his shoulders. “I have no life without you.”

“You have your family, your clan and the warriors. You don’t need me.”

She reached up and threaded her fingers through his hair. “I need you.” She pressed her lips to his, willing him to feel her need.

Trynt raised his head. “Don’t tempt me, Adatha. Not today.”

She fisted his hair. “Kiss me. Just once, kiss me before you go.”

Trynt cupped her face and caressed her cheeks with his thumbs. His lips touched hers, softly, then deeply.

She kissed him back, opening her heart. Passion flared, burning red hot. Dragonfire hot. Smoke poured from their nostrils. When the kiss ended, billowing smoke surrounded them.

He ran his thumb over her mouth. “You’re so very beautiful.”

Her breath caught and her heart pounded. “Beautiful? You think I’m beautiful?”

“You take my breath away. I was hoping, once we were both warriors we might, but that’s impossible now.”

“We might?”

“Be together.”

Adatha dug her fingers into his shoulder. “Don’t leave. Don’t go on the quest.”

“I have to go. What’s a dragon without honor?”

She saw the set of his jaw and heard the determination in his voice. Nothing she would say or do would stop him. “When are you leaving?”

“Daybreak.”

So soon! The sun had already fallen behind the high peaks. Soon darkness would blanket the mountains. “Grant me one wish before you go?”

“I’d give you the world if I could.”

“One wish, Trynt.”

His gaze searched hers. “Okay.”

“I want you. Give me tonight?”
