Wow, it's that time again. Time to stop for a brief while and enjoy some sexiness. Which is what this bloghop is all about. This week we're supposed to be thinking about how it feels to be sexy again. You know that sudden a-ha moment when a tired worn out mom catches her husband devouring her with his eyes, and before she knows it, she finds herself locked in the bathroom having her clothes ripped off?
But what do you think would happen if your passion for life was bound tightly, just waiting for the bite of your lovers? That you had never experienced lust quite as strong as with the man, or the men in this case than any before them. Would you run and hide and leave the men plotting ways to seduce you? Well that's exactly what Colleen does, when the two men destined to be her mates mistaken her as male. But one would think a the daughter of two Alphas, that she'd know better than to run....silly girl. In the end she'll only be caught.
Anyway enjoy this unedited snippet from my upcoming freshman release with Loose ID, Wolfen Bonds.
(in this snippet Andy and Matthias are still under the impression their third-bond is a male...don't ask...silly men.)
Andy snuggled closer to his side before throwing his leg over Matthias’s. “I know, Matt. Give him time. I’d be freaking out if I was him and I had two men partially mate me before I even met them.” He snuggled closer, unconcerned about the spent seed covering Matthias’s stomach. “I can feel him there each and every time we join. Surely we’re wearing him down. It’s only going to be a matter of time before he ends up pounding on our doors to kick our asses for tormenting him, or he slips enough to give us a clue to where he’s at. Then he’s ours.”
Draping an arm over Andy’s hip, he pressed a kiss to the top of his mate’s head. “I wish I had the confidence you have, baby. Each time we use our link he tries to retreat. I swear he’s only being a brat to piss me off.”
Matthias felt the smile, which Andy tried to hide against his chest. “Did you ever think perhaps he might be as much an Alpha as you are and doesn’t appreciate the way you keep demanding him to come to us? Not everyone loves to be ordered around.” Andy lifted his head. “There is some truth to honey attracting more bees than vinegar, my Alpha. Next time we need to seduce him. Tease him until he tips his hand and gives a clue.”
Trailing his fingers over his mate’s arm, Matthias sighed. “That’s a great idea. I’ll try to remember that the next time he refuses to answer. It’s infuriates me. We can feel him there. His passion seeps through the bond, but he holds everything else back. It pisses me off.”
Laying his head back down on Matt’s chest, Andy pressed a kiss to his sternum “I know it does. I think perhaps he’s uncertain of how we will come together. Ternions are only common in the packs of the North Western Province. If he’s from another area, he may have even been taught that we only mate in pairs, not threesomes. He might have be leery of the consequences of joining us. His own pack may turn on him or even attack him. Either way he could end up in a world of hurt. ”
Confusion raced through Matthias as he tightened one arm around Andy. “He’d have our pack. We’d never hurt him.”
Desperate to bring the once prosperous Taghte Pack back into the fold, the Council of Elders has tasked Matthias Galloway, a Chief Enforcer, with the job of returning balance to the foundering pack. In love, Matthias strikes up a deal, one which will allow him to claim his long time lover and friend, Andrew, in exchange for his services as the acting Alpha.
As the nephew of one of the most powerful Alphas in all of southern Scotland, Andrew Gilchrist has long been a coveted commodity that the Gairge Pack has been reluctant to relinquish. Not only for his position, but his services as a healer as well. But once the Council has agreed to Matthias's terms, he's more than eager to start their new journey together. Too bad neither men expected a the presence of a third-bond to appear during their mating.
Colleen Donghall, the granddaughter of the fallen Taghte Alpha was whisked away at birth with her twin brother, Carrick to prevent an inter-species war with the humans. She and Carrick have remained hidden in Ireland since. She never expected to be drawn into a bond with two men from across the Isle. A bond she is determined to forget once she believes they want a male. But when her Alpha demands she go to them, nobody is prepared for chaos Colleen's very presence in Scotland will bring.
Now poised on the brink of war, Matthias and Andy will have to fight to not only claim their mate, but to keep peace between the shifters and humans.
And don't forget to stop by the rest of the blogs. Lots of smexiness to go around!
