*Meet Damien, his lover/business partner Sim & Club Fantasy….. *
Damien threw the remote down and held his head in his hands. What the hell is going on tonight? I feel so damn restless and itchy for something. Standing up, he ignored the pointed look his partner, Sim gave him before he turned to the window. No one could see in but he could watch the world go by. As he spied Synnara walk with another woman to the door, he was surprised at the way his body clenched as his first sight of the woman had his body clenched tighter than a drum. What the fuck is going on? Damien thought as he closed his eyes as the lust raced through his body like a runaway train, gaining power until he almost buckled to the ground as it surged straight to his cock that ached to thrust into someone’s wetness. His hands tightened on the windowsill and he groaned softly as he tried to keep the lust at bay. As a half demon of lust, he needed sex and the sexual release daily but he never experienced this intense sort of heat before especially as he watched with hooded eyes as the two women stepped into his playground.
“Damien, what is it? I can feel your tension right across the room.” Sim asked as he walked over to where Damien was. Spying the bulge that jutted in front of the jeans, “My, my…what brought this on, love?” Stroking the hardness, he watched as Damien shivered and clenched his ass as a shudder raced through his body.
“Keep doing that, I am going to ram your ass hard and fast, Sim.” Damien growled as Sim’s stroking drove him to almost the brink of cumming. His fingers almost gouging the windowsill as the need for sex drove him to move his hips in time of the strokes.
“Oh I think someone needs a good spanking tonight if he wants to be a naughty boy. Is this all for me or should we see what caught your interest a few minutes ago?” Sim asked as he kept the light stroking, driving another shudder from his lover.
Damien took a deep breath and uncurled his hands from the windowsill. Grasping Sim’s hand, he leaned over and gave him a hard kiss, tongue diving inside to tease him as well. “Let’s go see who the new arrivals are Sim and maybe we can find someone to play with tonight. I am feeling a bit……..hungry for a pretty brunette tonight.” Grinning, his topaz eyes glowing and his cock jutted hard against the denim as it strained for release. “Let’s go play love. I think we might get a pleasant surprise tonight.”
Sneak Peek 2:
Devon Falls 5: Moonlight & Magic (Paranormal Erotic Romance/Shifter)
Dixie Sinclair was bored and just about ready to give up on love ever finding her. Her cousins all had love matches and frankly, she was tired of being the one always alone. Impulsively making a wish to find love before the dreaded Valentine’s Day, she never expects to find the one man to turn her inside out and make her believe in love all over again.
Michael Barnes is a rare white tiger shifter and with no pride of his own, he roams from place to place, trying to find the one place to call home. What he never expects is to find the one woman who is destined to be his mate. Can he find a way to win Dixie ’s heart while teaching her the delights of love…one chocolate kiss at a time?
Sneak Peek excerpt unedited so please forgive me on mistakes:
The sun shined brightly as Michael drove into Devon Falls . He looked around as he drove up Main Street and wondered if he could finally find a place to call home. “Wow…look at this place.” Michael said to the dog on the floor of the rental car. Sadie looked up and yawned before going back to sleep with a snore. Grinning, Michael took in the snow covered buildings to the people bustling around. He was charmed by the way the small town seemed to make him feel like he was welcomes. If Damien has told me the truth then I think I finally found the one place that will ease this loneliness inside, Michael thought as he spied the Dragon Inn up ahead.
Finally reaching the parking lot, the Dragon Inn looked imposing yet even he felt the magic that surrounded it. It made him wary even as he patted Sadie on the head and opened the window so she could get fresh air. “I will be back soon Sadie. Man the fort and bark if you need me.” Michael said as he stepped out of the car, shivering as the artic air seemed to have frozen the blood in his veins. Blowing into his hands, he cursed himself that he didn’t get any winter clothing before he started this trip. “Living in Miami for the summer really didn’t prepare me for winter at all”, Michael muttered to himself as he walked to the front door. Steeling himself, he hoped Damien would still welcome him and remember the invitation he made when they crossed paths in Europe a year ago.
Come to Devon Falls, Mic. Here you can be free to be yourself and you never know, you might find the one person who will love you no matter what, Michael remembered Damien saying in Prague as he pushed open the door and breathed in the warm air that had him shuddering as his body started thawing even as he shut the door behind him. Finally warmth and sniffing the air, the scents of bread baking m de his stomach growl in anticipation even as he tried to stomp the snow off his boots before venturing into what looked like the common room and courtesy desk.
He was just about to turn to walk over to the room he spied when he came in when a loud “MICHAEL” seemed to bounce of the walls. Turning around he spied Damien walking toward him, smiling broadly.
“Dang man, it’s been too long since I laid eyes on you. How have you been?” Damien asked him as he clasped hands with the one person he considered friend and smiled back, relieved to see that he was welcomed after all.
Michael grinned and said, “I decided to see what all the fuss was about in this town of yours Damien. From what I saw it looks very welcoming and intriguing.” Relief flowed in his veins as the knots in his stomach eased a bit as Damien guided him over to a private area where coffee bar was set up.
“Yeah Devon Falls is one heck of a town. How long has it been Mic, since I saw you? It must have been at least a year since Prague . Does this mean you plan to stay, at least for us to catch up?” Damien’s gaze looked hopeful and pleased while Mic felt the knots finally go away. He was welcome…finally a place to relax without fear.
