PET’S PLEASURE by Zenobia Renquist
Starling envied the easy life of pets…until she became one. Kidnapped from Earth and sold to the highest bidder, she now belongs to an alien king. But she doesn’t want to be his pampered possession. She wants Bekion to see her as an independent woman with needs and desires of her own.
Only deviants break the laws barring sexual relations between owners and their pets, and King Bekion has no intention of succumbing to simple lust. But the long nights with Starling’s lush body pressed tight against his take a toll. Her strength and intelligence make it difficult for Bekion to remember Starling is human—and forbidden. He knows it isn’t right but he can’t stop thinking of his pet and all the pleasure he could give her, even if it costs him his crown.
Bekion wrapped his arm around her waist and pulled her onto the bed. He situated her with her back pressed against his stomach and her head tucked under his chin. “We’ll talk about this later.”
She heaved a sigh and decided to relax. Bored in bed or bored in the outer chamber was still bored. But bored in bed meant she wasn’t alone. She closed her eyes. Sleep would come eventually.
Her eyes snapped open again when she felt Bekion’s hand roaming over her breasts. He cupped one, gave it a squeeze and then held it. She pulled at his wrist but he didn’t release her. She turned as much as she could with him holding her to tell him off. He was sleeping.
Her anger at his actions waned. Bekion probably slept with women he could grope. So long as he didn’t get any friskier, there was no point getting pissed about it. She settled down again.
The groping aside, Bekion hadn’t turned evil. But they’d only known each other for days. Time would tell if his good-guy routine was an act or real.
Despite not being tired, she slept thanks to Bekion’s warmth. No nightmares plagued her while wrapped in his arms.
Crossfire of Love by Ella Jade
Can an arranged marriage lead to love?
Recent college graduate Gabriella has finally married the man of her dreams, the older, charismatic attorney Lorenzo Martinez. She's had a crush on him for as long as she can remember and always imagined they'd one day find their happily ever after. Unfortunately, they enter into a union arranged by their fathers.
Lorenzo is charming, protective and loyal to his crime lord father Carlo. When Carlo asks Lorenzo to marry Gabriella he jumps at the opportunity. He's been drawn to her for many years and knows by marrying her, he's helping to protect her father.
Gabby is resentful and won't be Lorenzo's charity case. Sparks fly and the couple soon gives into their desire realizing they were meant to be together. What happens when Carlo's enemies threaten their future? Will someone get caught in the crossfire?
Lorenzo pulled his jacket off, poured himself a scotch, and then loosened his tie. "Would you like a drink?"
"No, thank you," Gabby said.
Most brides would be dancing the night away and drinking champagne by this point in their wedding night. She didn't think that was part of Lorenzo's plan.
"I didn't think you'd go through with it." He sipped the amber colored liquid as he looked her over."I said I would."
"I know, but when push actually came to shove, I thought you'd run.""You don't know me that well," she said. "I don't run."
"Good." He smirked as he put the glass to his lips.Gabby couldn't take her eyes away from those lips. She'd never had the pleasure of having them on her own. Judge Cartwright hadn't asked him to kiss his bride. She hated herself for thinking about him that way.
"You could've stopped this. Why didn't you?" she asked.As they stood in front of the judge, she kept hoping he'd put an end to the charade and stop the wedding. It didn't make sense to her why he had agreed to marry her. She didn't have a choice. Her father's gambling debts made sure of that. But she didn't understand why he'd allowed things to get as far as they had.
"I was just as trapped as you were." He downed the rest of his scotch.
“Dragon’s Bond” by Berengaria Brown
Mallory is fascinated by three life-size stone dragon statues. Then one night they come to life and she learns they’re shape-shifters. One of the museum’s directors, Teivel, plans to use the shape-shifting dragons as art thieves by placing them in exhibitions in other museums, and Mallory, Angus, William, and Mark now have to find out which statues are shape-shifters and how they can prevent Teivel from implementing his plan. That makes their days very busy, but the nights are for their own pleasure.
Can they outwit Teivel? What will happen if Mallory loses her job or the statues have to leave their home in the museum? And can a relationship built on a crisis and unbridled lust develop into lasting love and enduring passion?
The men moved around a little more, seeming to know exactly how to position themselves so they all shared her, yet each was where he needed to be. Angus moved the last few inches up to place his cock at her entry then slid inside. He waited with the head of his cock just inside her, until her walls stretched to accommodate him, and then he thrust deep, filling her to perfection. No man had ever stretched her in such a delicious way before. He was huge, but he fitted inside her delightfully.
When Angus was tucked up tight against her body, William straddled her, his back hard against Angus’s front. William rubbed a little of the lube in the valley between her breasts then leaned forward, cupping her globes around his cock, leaving the head just peeking out level with her mouth.
But if she was going to suck Mark, she wouldn’t be able to lick William as well. Now that was unfortunate. Oh well, maybe next time.
The Second Time Around by Remmy Duchene
Ash Archibald wakes up one morning to find his best friend gone. This sends his heart into a spiral of confusion, pain, and an overwhelming sense of betrayal. A year later, Ash allows his sister to talk him into going after Keith, not as a lover but to get some closure.
Keith Hudson is Jamaican and in his family he can be anything he wants--a drug dealer, a university drop-out--anything but the biggest taboo--gay. In the time he all but ran away from Canada to his own little paradise on the island of Jamaica, Keith became a shadow of his former self, a recluse, living on a private estate on the small island. When Ash shows up at his door, Keith now has to face the anger of a best friend scorned and the possibility that he could lose his family forever.
Ash arched a brow, turned his head and fought to stare at Keith’s face rather than downward. “Yes, yes you do have something I’ve never seen before.” Ash turned away again.
“You’re joking right? Please tell me you’re not a virgin.”
“I am so not a virgin!” Ash swung around, his eyes dipped to Keith’s cock then flew up again. “I just—I…never seen anything so…damn it why am I tongue tied?”
Keith burst out laughing and Ash frowned. He turned away again, tried storming out but only succeeded in tripping over himself and hitting the ground hard.
“Damn it to hell!” Ash yelled.
“Are you alright?”
“Perfect,” Ash replied. “I should go.” The next time Ash looked up it was to what he was running away from in the first place. Keith’s cock was right there, before him, tempting him.
He is not gay. He is not gay!
Ash scrambled to his feet and turned once more for the door. This time he was stopped when Keith reached out and grabbed his hand. The lightning that shimmered through Ash’s body then sent shame after it. He bowed his head but no matter how loudly his head told him to yank his hand away, Ash’s heart and penis just wouldn’t let him. Biting on his lower lips, he fought to steady his breathing—but to his horror, his chest heaved harder, faster and more painful.
“Keith, please. Let me go.”
“Why? Are you turned on? Is that why?”
“Just let me go—I can’t-- not with you.”
When You’re With Me, Wendi Zwaduk
A topless dancer plus a cynical cop doesn’t equal a lifetime love...or does it?
There’s more to Jude Nelson than just a sequined thong. She has big dreams of becoming an artist. There’s one tiny wrinkle in her plan-she’ll never forget the bloody image of her friend’s battered body in the dumpster.
Who can a nude dancer turn to for help? Certainly not a hardened undercover cop...
Detective Drew Alwyn is on the case to find out who murdered his good friend and fellow officer. But the moment he sees Jude, he can’t look away. He has to decide which is more important-his dedication to his job or the girl who holds his bruised and battered heart.
Will these two opposites come together to solve the case or will their desire consume them?
Reader Advisory: This story contains scenes of bondage, mentions of drug use by secondary characters, silk, sequins and art supplies used in foreplay, voyeurism and a little spanking for good measure.
Instead of running, she sat back down on his lap, straddling his heat. Her fingers laced with his. “You’ve got me, Ramon,” she whispered, “for now.”
Ramon grinned but felt a strange sensation beneath his ribs. He didn’t want her for only right now. He wanted her for… No, he couldn’t say it. He didn’t want to ruin it like everything else, especially not with the severity of the undercover operation gaining steam. “Then I’ll count the minutes until I can kiss you, sweet girl.”
Her eyes widened and her lips parted. There was a definite catch in her breath before she leaned into him. He loved that he could make her melt so easily and wondered if she would for anyone. Her eyes closed and a tiny sigh escaped her luscious lips. “Kiss me, Ramon.”
Ramon cupped her face in his hands and brought her lips to his. She had to know how he needed her—wanted her. It was a quick kiss, but it seared his lips instantaneously. The combination of lipstick, mouthwash and Jude nearly knocked him out. Her tongue grazed his lips and he sucked her into his mouth—tasting…enjoying her.
“Woman, you’re perfect for me,” he murmured.
