After Felix by Lily Morton

AfterFelix-LM-f900-web

Close Proximity, Book 3

Sometimes the best love stories come in two parts.

When Felix met handsome journalist Max Travers, it was lust at first sight. It was just his luck that he then had to develop a terrible case of feelings and got his heart broken. However, two and a half years later, he’s over all of that. His job is going well, he has good friends, and he doesn’t lack for male company. Which, of course, is when Max has to come bursting back into his life.

Felix Jackson will always be the one who got away to Max. He’s spent their time apart regretting his actions and hoping for a second chance. When an accident lands him in Felix’s less than tender care, Max is determined to grab this opportunity. The only problem is that Felix is equally determined that he doesn’t.

From bestselling author, Lily Morton comes a story of missed opportunities, second chances, and two very stubborn men. This is the third book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt:

I’m halfway home when my phone beeps. Digging it out of my pocket, I look down at the text and then give a startled laugh.

Max: Hope you’re home safely. 

A smile plays on my lips as I tap on my phone.

Me: Why wouldn’t I be?

Max: Well, you were walking a bit funny. I was concerned that I’d shagged your coordination out of you.

Me: I think that only happens when people get to your advanced age.

He sends me back a one-fingered emoji, and I laugh.

Me: I cannot even begin to imagine how your number ended up on my phone?

Max: I put it in while you were in the bathroom. Thought it might come in handy.

Me: For what? If I ever happen to need my autobiography written?

Max: I’ve already got the title. ‘Sassy and Shagged Out’. It’ll be a bestseller.

Cover Reveal for this exciting debut:

The B-Side by B. Harmony

With Excerpt & Giveaway!

Releasing: August 28th

BSide Cover

Perspective Series, Book 1

Chance
When I read the roommate wanted ad, I thought my sister was encouraging me to live with an insane person. As it turns out, he isn’t insane, he’s sexy and one hundred percent my type. Living with him will be the ultimate test of my self control.

When the combination of our love of music and my overwhelming need to take care of him meets jealousy, sparks fly. His heart may be damaged, but nothing is beyond repair.

Now all I have to do is convince him that I’m in this for the long haul, not just this moment.

Tyler
I may look like the happy-go-lucky gay guy with a big smile and more punny tees than one person should probably own. But it’s just a shield to protect my heart, the one that has been torn apart by the people who were meant to love me most. The last thing I’m willing to do is risk the tattered shreds on my new – straight- roommate. Sure, he’s sexy as sin and has a love of music that rivals my own, but all that is just grounds for a new friendship. Nothing more. Right?

Yet, every moment we spend together tests a little bit more of my self control. When it turns out my roommate is not as straight as I once thought, I have to decide if this is one playlist I should listen to.

Will we have our own love song, or will this just be another broken-hearted ballad?

The B-Side is a low-angst, roommates-to-lovers, MM Romance novel. Featuring punny t-shirts for every occasion, killer playlists, meddling family and friends, and a happily-ever-after.

Special Cover Reveal Excerpt:

A quick glance down at my outfit to make sure I’m decent and . . . slim fit jeans without stains and a black tee that says Let Me Be Perfectly Queer. Yep, this will be fine. With that thought, I stand up from my table, stretch my arms above my head, and head down the stairs to open the door.

No matter how confident I am about getting a roommate, absolutely nothing would have prepared me for the sight that greeted me when I opened the door.

Holy shit. Thank you, Baby Jesus.

Chance Arden is a gorgeous male specimen. If I had to wager a guess, I’d say he’s somewhere around six three. A gorgeous mop of wavy, dark brown hair rests on top of the most beautiful face I’ve ever seen on a man. Not quite a chiseled jaw; no, he’s got a more rounded face, covered in just-past-five o’clock scruff, and the clearest sea-blue eyes. I scan my eyes down from his face to the rest of his body; he’s muscular, but lean.

Maybe he’s a swimmer, I muse.

He’s wearing a blue and green gingham button up with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, a pair of dark wash jeans, and navy-blue Chucks.

Wow.

Chance clears his throat. “Um. Hey. Are you Tyler?”

Apparently, my manners ended the second I opened the door. I can feel my cheeks heat slightly as I realize I’ve been standing here for a solid minute perusing this spectacular showing of the male form instead of speaking.

Get it together, Tyler. He’s probably straight. No—more importantly, he could be your new roommate. Do not hit on him.

“Yep, that’s me!” I say with way too much enthusiasm. “Come on in.”

I open the door wider and step off to the side to allow Chance to walk in further. I may or may not peruse his backside as he walks past me. I admit to nothing. But, god, it is just as spectacular as the front of him.

“I’m glad you could come by on such short notice. I’m eager to get my roommate situation squared away.”

“No problem. The weekends are typically off days for me, so this worked out fine.”

He seems nervous if his wringing hands are anything to go by. His voice, though, his voice is steady, deep, and has me fighting to control my dick’s insistence that it gets an opportunity to pop up and say hello.

Red Heir by Lisa Henry & Sarah Honey

REDHEIR_COVERFINAL_FRONTONLY

Imprisoned pickpocket Loth isn’t sure why a bunch of idiots just broke into his cell claiming they’re here to rescue the lost prince of Aguillon, and he doesn’t really care. They’re looking for a redheaded prince, and he’s more than happy to play along if it means freedom. Then his cranky cellmate Grub complicates things by claiming to be the prince as well.

Now they’re fleeing across the country and Loth’s stuck sharing a horse and a bedroll with Grub while imitating royalty, eating eel porridge, and dodging swamp monsters and bandits.

Along the way, Loth discovers that there’s more to Grub than meets the eye. Under the dirt and bad attitude, Grub’s not completely awful. He might even be attractive. In fact, Loth has a terrible suspicion that he’s developing feelings, and he’s not sure what to do about that. He’d probably have more luck figuring it out if people would just stop trying to kill them.

Still, at least they’ve got a dragon, right?

Teaser 1


Excerpt:

Loth sighed and rattled the chains of his manacles, but they remained stubbornly affixed to the cold stone wall of the cell in Delacourt castle. Delacourt castle, like the rest of Delacourt, was a total shithole. Loth had only been here a few days after stumbling off the ship from Callier, but he felt more than qualified to make that judgement call. His head throbbed, either because of how much ale he’d had to drink last night or because the guards hadn’t been gentle with him during his arrest. His memory of the events wasn’t crystal clear, but his favourite blue doublet had a tear in it, and he was fairly certain he’d never get the stains out of the knees of his pants. Which, not for the first time, but Loth preferred to be on his knees by choice, and not because he was being dragged through the muddy streets by a bunch of thugs wearing the livery of the crown. Waking up in chains wasn’t his favourite way to start the day either, that was for sure. Not unless he’d agreed to it beforehand. 

“I suppose you’re wondering how I got into this mess,” he announced loudly in the gloom. 

The pile of straw on the other side of the cell rustled, and a grubby face appeared. “I wasn’t. I don’t care.” 

“I wasn’t talking to you,” Loth said to his cellmate. 

“Then who were you talking to?” his cellmate demanded, jutting his jaw out. 

“I was soliloquising,” Loth said. “Well, I was hoping to, but somebody won’t shut their mouth.” 

“Why don’t you shut your mouth?” 

Loth snorted. “How can I soliloquise if I do that? Now, hush.” He cleared his throat. “I suppose you’re wondering how I got into this mess.” 

“I am not wondering!” his cellmate snarled. “I am trying to sleep! Shut up!” 

“Since you’re awake,” Loth said, “and apropos of nothing, you wouldn’t happen to know what the penalty is in these parts for pickpocketing, would you?” 

“I hope it involves cutting your tongue out.” 

Loth hummed. “That would be a terrible loss. My tongue would be mourned throughout the land.”

“I doubt that very much,” his snappish cellmate replied. “You haven’t said anything of import yet.” 

Loth grinned. “Oh, sweetheart, I didn’t mean for talking.”

Eyes widened in the shadows, and then the straw rustled again as his cellmate attempted to bury himself under it. “Shut up!”

About the Authors:

About Lisa:

Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters.

Lisa lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.

She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.

She shares her house with too many cats, a dog, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.

Lisa has been published since 2012, and was a LAMBDA finalist for her quirky, awkward coming-of-age romance Adulting 101, and a Rainbow Awards finalist for 2019’s Anhaga.

She also has a Facebook group where you’ll be kept in the loop with updates on releases, have a chance to win prizes, and probably see lots of lots of pictures of her dog and cats. You can find it here: Lisa Henry’s Hangout.


About Sarah:

Sarah lives in Western Australia with her partner, two cats, two dogs and a TARDIS.

A teacher once told her life’s not a joke.

She begs to differ.

Her proudest achievements include having kids who will still be seen with her in public, and knowing all the words to Bohemian Rhapsody.

Red Heir is her first published novel.

After losing his family and coven six years ago, Felix was finally happy again. He has a job he‘s good at, two boyfriends who love him, friends, and a place to call home. That is, until a mysterious stranger brings a job into the Assassins Guild where he and his lover, Ryder, work.

On paper the job is simple, take out the sorcerer who heads the most powerful dark magic church in the country. But magic is never simple, and Ryder and Felix enlist the help of a ragtag group of unlikely heroes, including Felix’s other boyfriend Luka, to complete the job before time runs out.

Will Luka and Ryder see what Felix has always suspected? And more importantly, will they be able to accept it, and each other?

*Blood Oath is Book 1 in the Legacy of the Assassins series. It is not a standalone and ends in a soft cliffhanger. The story within the book concludes at the end, however, the bigger story continues in Books 2 and 3, which are be available for preorder. This book is an urban fantasy/paranormal m/m romance story.

Teaser 3


Excerpt:

It was early, but Ryder had slept for shit, and he’d taken a chance that Felix would be up and come over.

“Morning.” Felix pulled the door all the way open as he bit into a piece of toast.

“Couldn’t sleep, figured you’d be up…” His voice trailed off when he saw the unfamiliar man leaning against Felix’s counter with a plate of eggs, sausage, and toast in front of him.

“Luka came by last night.” Felix glanced between them. “Ryder, Luka,” he introduced hastily.

“Hey.” Ryder nodded at the other man as he covertly checked him out.

Well, at least he tried to be covert about it. He wasn’t so sure he managed to pull it off.

“Hey,” Luka greeted as he shoveled some sausage and toast into his mouth.

He’d never asked Felix what Luka looked like, but the man in front of him was nothing like he’d pictured. He was handsome, devastatingly so, with his brooding aura, intense eyes, and angular features. He was also taller and broader than Ryder was, which he wasn’t sure he liked. It was childish and stupid to be jealous of Luka’s looks, but he was gorgeous, and it made him feel a little self-conscious.

He wasn’t weirded out by the thought that Felix and Luka had spent the night together, and that was strange. He’d expected to feel jealousy at the realization, but all he could picture were Luka and Felix on Felix’s bed, their naked bodies locked together as Luka slid inside Felix.

“You had breakfast yet?” Felix asked they came into the kitchen area, knocking Ryder out of his strange but not completely unwelcome thoughts.

“Half a cup of strong coffee count?” he asked, trying to keep his voice light as he leaned against the counter about a foot away from Luka.

He was no stranger to fantasizing about Felix, but the fact that he was picturing Luka and Felix together was unsettling. He must be more exhausted than he’d thought.

Release Blitz & Excerpt:

Stacking the Deck by Charlie Cochet

StackingTheDeck-600x900

The Kings: Wild Cards, Book 1

Ex-Special Forces Communications Sergeant Jacopo “Jack” Constantino heads the cybersecurity department at Four Kings Security, working with his tech-savvy team to provide clients with state-of-the-art security systems. But life for Jack is pretty uneventful—despite the exploits with his brothers-in-arms—and he finds himself longing for a little more excitement.

Be careful what you wish for.

Two years ago, Fitz Harlow captured Jack’s heart and walked away with it. Now he’s back.

Fitz spent the last two years picking up the pieces of his life after a disastrous relationship. After much therapy, and ice cream, Fitz leaves the fashion world behind and returns home to St. Augustine to open his own high-end salon, Hair Comes Trouble. Now Fitz finally has the quiet, peaceful life he’s wanted for so long. There’s only one thing missing, or rather, one man missing, but Fitz has his doubts. With Jack, he’s not just gaining a boyfriend—he’s gaining a boyfriend, his family of mischief-magnet ex-Green Berets, and one highly opinionated Belgian Malinois.

Fitz and Jack discover their connection has only grown stronger over time, thanks in part to meddling friends, but just as they start to pick up where they left off, someone takes exception to their reunion. Danger hides in the shadows, a stalker determined to keep Fitz out of Jack’s life, no matter the cost. With the odds stacked against them, can Jack and Fitz win a battle against an unknown enemy, or will Jack lose Fitz forever?

The Kings: Wild Cards series is a spin-off of the Four Kings Security series.

Excerpt:

Oh God. Jack covered his face with his hands. Just what he didn’t need.

“What is it?” Ace asked, no doubt peeking over Joker’s shoulder, because although Joker was nosy, no one beat him in the meddling department like Ace. Anston Sharpe was worse than the granny living next door who knew more about you than your family did.

“A text from Fitz.”

Jack ignored the smile in Joker’s voice. He moved his hands and sighed. The two were grinning like idiots.

“It’s nothing. Just a reminder about my upcoming hair appointment.” Why the hell had he agreed to get his hair cut at Hair Comes Trouble? Right, because Fitz’s best friend, Laz, had given Jack the puppy eyes and Jack was too much of a sucker to say no. Sometimes friends sucked.

“There’s a kissy-face emoji after it, though,” Ace pointed out.

“I’m sure he adds that to all his texts.”

“No, he doesn’t,” Ace said, removing his phone from his pocket. He tapped away at it before showing Jack his text from Fitz. “My emoji is looking at me with suspicion. Like, what is that? Why do I get the suspicion emoji? Is he expecting me to make off with his hair dryer? Give him a bad review on Yelp? Why do you get a kissy face and I get apprehension?”

“Because you’re shady as fuck,” Joker said with a snort.

“Screw you. What emoji did you get?”

“I got a happy face and a little service dog emoji for Chip.”

“What the hell? I mean, Chip I get. Everyone loves him, but why do you get a happy face? No one likes you.”

Joker grinned smugly. “My emoji and my dog’s emoji say otherwise.”

“Whatever.” Ace rolled his eyes before turning that intense gold-green gaze on Jack. “So… you gonna call him?”

Jack shook his head. “Nope. It was a confirmation appointment. From his salon, I might add. Not a personal text.”

“But it had a kissy-face emoji,” Ace said, waggling his eyebrows.

“It was probably a mistake. Everyone, get out of my van.”

Forces of Nature, Book 1

The life of Tony-winning musician Reese Matheson resembles a natural disaster, and caregiver Jude De La Torre is caught in the eye of the storm. But can the love of two opposites survive caring for an ornery octogenarian with wayward balls and a meddling family insistent upon tradition?

Fresh off the successful London run of his musical, the last thing Reese expects when he comes home is a house surrounded by paparazzi and his girlfriend throwing his stuff into the pool. All he wants to do is spend time with his beloved grandfather and musical mentor who suffers from Alzheimer’s. Reese knows he doesn’t have much time left before the elder Matheson forgets who he is. In classic “Hurricane Reese” form, he moves into the cottage by the sea and displaces Jude, the intriguing caregiver he hired two years before. When Grandpa proves too much for Reese to handle on his own, Jude comes to his rescue, taming Grandpa… and the Hurricane as well.

But beneath that glittering exterior, Toby suffers the lasting effects of abuse. To keep his tempestuous past where it belongs, he insists on anonymity with lovers—no names, no personal information.

Therapist Spencer Hart left Bali with a bad case of pneumonia and a broken heart. Although he’s recovering, he’s shocked to find his secretive partner on TV, and he’s determined to see him again. Spencer arranges to attend one of Toby’s fundraising galas, and their reunion is tense.

Toby tries to stick to his rules… until a New Year’s kiss with Spencer washes away the last of his resistance.

Excerpt:

They’d been snuggling on the couch for what seemed like hours, kissing and cooing at each other, when the sound of a key in the lock heralded Sandy’s arrival. They moved a fraction apart.

“Hi, guys.” Sandy’s perpetual smile widened. “What have you been up to?”

“Exactly as it looks,” Phineas said crisply, deciding an offense was the best defense.

“Yeah? Cool!”

Cody chuckled. “How was The Roxy?”

“Yum. Well, I’m gonna hit the sack. I’m getting up early for Ultimate Frisbee. Night, Uncle Phinney. Night, Cody.” He gave them one more blinding grin and loped off to his room.

Phineas looked at Cody, who was regarding him with a wry smile. “He knows.”

“He so knows,” Cody agreed. “But I think now that he’s home, I should go.”

“Yes, I guess so. I’m regretting our decision to not visit my bedroom.”

“Yet, remember?” Cody pecked him on the lips. “How about I come over tomorrow and make you dinner?”

“You’re sweet. And yes, I would love for you to make me dinner.” And then make sweet love to me.

At the door Cody turned to Phineas with an earnest expression. “You know I really want to stay. But I think we owe it to Sandy to talk to him about it first.”

“Hmm.” Phineas pretended to consider. “He might be a bit miffed.”

Cody drew his eyebrows together. He was such a cute worrier. “You think?”

“Only because I haven’t let Dare sleep over.”

“Ohhh.” Cody broke into a smile. “No more moral high ground for you, Mr. MacDonald.”

“You’ve corrupted me thoroughly, Mr. Bellstrom. Thank God.”

One more tight hug, one more sweet kiss, and Cody was out the door.

Phineas leaned against it with a dreamy smile, then floated into his bedroom and opened his closet door. “Aha, there you are.”

He pulled out his sparkly red Phanny Hill gown and hugged it to his chest.

It’s A Steal by Arden O’Keefe

ItsASteal_AOKeefe

Edric Wilcher has realized growing up that there are simply two things in this world he can never imagine his life without—music and coffee. This is the reason why he chooses the life of a famous rock star—at least, famous in his own small town, and then, goes ahead and opens up Rockstar’s Hideout Café. Every morning he serves his regulars and has a nice, long chat with them before they go back to their daily routine. His charms work wonders on them. Thanks to the good genes bestowed upon him, he doesn’t look half bad. So, it strikes him as odd that this new customer who walks in that morning carrying a heap of books doesn’t seem to even spare him a second glance.

“Coffee” is what he orders and Ed goes out of his way to make him feel special. But the redheaded nerd—okay, a cute nerd, probably cutest he’s seen in his life—just leaves with his books, leaving even the muffin-on-the-house completely untouched. The mystery surrounding this guy gets the best of Ed and when he finds a book left behind by this customer, he can’t help follow the trail to see him just one more time. Even if it is to get a name.

Dean Harrett has somehow misplaced the one thing that was supposed to help him out of his current problems—and that thing is not a cheesy, romance novel. What matters to him the most is what he’s kept in the book—the perfect plan that can make or break his future. And that book has gone now. Only if he can remember where he’s last seen that book…

Of course! The café, where that annoying barista just wouldn’t leave him alone so he had to leave.

But now Dean has to get back there and look for himself before anyone can lay their hands on it. He doesn’t even want to think about the worst-case scenario of someone finding out what he is up to. But this only means he will have to face the annoying, but handsome barista again. Ugh!

Excerpt:

Early mornings were usually the time for his frequent customers, who’d hop in, grab their usual coffees and hop out to rush to whatever daily chores or work duties were calling for them. As the good barista that he was, Ed knew the personal preferences of each one of his customers.

This visitor, however, was someone new.

Not that he could see the person’s face, but he knew every customer of his who frequented his café, Ed was just that good. This was not someone he had seen before, but he was curious to know as hell.

He first saw the huge pile of books being pushed in, before hearing someone’s tiny voice that asked, “Are you open?” All he could see were the arms, jean-clad legs and a mess of a ginger hair.

Dumbfounded by the scene, Ed simply nodded.

Realizing that the guy couldn’t see any of his gestures from behind the books, he quickly said, “Uh… yeah, come on in.”

How on Earth can he walk without seeing where he’s going? Ed mused to himself.

From what he was able to observe, the pile of books hid a short-looking guy in his early twenties. Honestly though, every other guy out there was shorter than Ed’s six foot four build. This guy was probably somewhere around five eleven. His scrawny fingers held onto those books for dear life, but the guy definitely had the strength to carry a pile of bricks, even with those muscles built on him. Ed had initially considered offering some help, but quickly dismissed the thought.

The guy looked around, or looked only so far he could travel his gaze around, and must have quickly realized he was first to the party. Ed heard him sigh before he headed toward the table in the nook furthest away from the door.

Of course, he’d choose that table.

Taking a quick look at all those books that served as a curtain right now, Ed perused these titles closely. It was a strange selection, to say the least, because the genres were all over. If one had to look at them in order to analyze the person’s taste and preferences, they’d be as stumped as Ed was at that moment. From cheesy, romantic novels to crime series, the collection had everything, and even an encyclopedia of the greatest money-heist crimes that had gone down in the history.

If nothing else, this mysterious stranger had already sparked interest in Ed. He was now intrigued to see who was hiding behind those old, dusty books.

The Midnight Gardener by R.G. Thomas

The Midnight Gardener for Amazon 1867-x-2800

The Town of Superstition, Book 1

Thaddeus Cane and his father have moved thirty-two times in all of Thaddeus’ fifteen years. Every time his father uproots them without a reason, it leaves Thaddeus friendless once again. Superstition is the town they’ve settled in this time, and despite its name, it seems like every other little town, except for one thing.

From the window of his bedroom, Thaddeus can look into their neighbor’s back yard. And every night, after dark, he sees a guy his own age putter around in the immaculately maintained garden. When Thaddeus visits his neighbor the crush already blooming underneath surfaces, and Teofil, the midnight gardener, reveals he’s actually a garden gnome. When Thaddeus’ father finds out, more secrets are exposed, and Thaddeus embarks on the adventure of a lifetime.

Excerpt:

Teofil leaned slowly toward him. Thaddeus’ heart pounded faster the closer Teofil approached. Had he brushed his teeth before coming over? Had he even run a comb through his hair?

Teofil moved at a glacier’s pace. Thaddeus could hear the fairies giggling and see the bright yellow trails they left in the night air as they zipped fast behind Teofil’s head.

He took a breath and closed his eyes as Teofil’s lips touched his. The brush of Teofil’s whiskers was soft and not at all scratchy, and the feel of it along with the firm press of his lips sent Thaddeus’ heart racing even faster. Blood pounded in his ears, and the wounds in his leg pulsed in time. The voices of the fairies circling them blended together into one gentle, sweet song that floated away on the night breeze. Heat prickled across Thaddeus’ skin in waves, and his scalp tingled.

It was tentative and sweet, almost questioning, as if he sought permission even though Thaddeus had been willing. Teofil pulled back much too soon, and Thaddeus couldn’t help the resulting smile. It had been his first kiss, and it had been perfect.

“You taste like magic,” Teofil said.

Thaddeus knew, at that moment, that he had fallen in love with Teofil. Whether he actually was a gnome or was insane and thought he was a gnome, Thaddeus didn’t care. He had finally met someone who made him feel special, someone who made him feel welcomed and loved and funny. He had met someone who made him laugh and want to ask questions of and listen for hours to his answers. This was the man—the gnome—he had been destined to meet.

RG Thomas

About the Author:

R. G. Thomas has been reading books from an early age. As a young gay man, however, he found very few characters with whom he could truly identify. Now that he’s an adult—or at least older than he used to be—he likes to write stories that revolve around gay characters. The Town of Superstition is his YA fantasy gay romance series which includes wizards, witches, and other magical creatures.

When he’s not writing, R. G. Thomas loves to read, go to movies, watch some TV, and putter around in the small suburban patch of ground he calls a yard. He visits his mother once a week, not just for the free cookies, and enjoys spending time with close friends drinking wine and making up ridiculous things that sometimes show up in his books. Although he hates the process of travel, he does enjoy experiencing new places. His dream trip is to one day visit the country of Greece, and he is currently saving his nickels and dimes to make that a reality.

Twenty years ago he met a man who understood and encouraged his strange, creative mind, who made him laugh more often and more freely than anyone else. They were officially married in November of 2015 and today they still laugh often as they live in a suburb just north of Detroit with their two cats who act as both muse and distraction to him while he writes.

Teaser 1

Excerpt:

Callum O’Rourke

I attempted to apologize for my rudeness, but I couldn’t make a sound as I got lost in the ocean of his eyes. They were an icy blue, but full of a fire that beckoned for me to come closer. The intense connection from before returned in a rush, making it harder to breathe. How was it possible that even his long eyelashes were captivating?

“You must be Callum.”

The deep timbre of his voice saying my name made heat pool in my belly, while it raised chills on my skin. Too stunned to reply, I nodded in response.

He held out his free hand. “I’m Rune. Nice to meet you.”

My reflexes reacted before my brain did, so I reached out to him. The instant our palms touched, my arousal sparked into a roaring blaze that made me inhale in surprise. In doing so, I smelled his cologne. It was dark and inviting, spiced with a hint of something unknown that had me biting my lower lip to hold in a moan. Fuck me.

It became even more difficult to restrain myself when his long, slender fingers wrapped around me as we shook hands. His touch was electric, making every nerve inside me come to life. An image flashed in my mind of him caressing my naked body, shocking me with the graphic thought of us entwined in a sensual embrace as we fucked. The fires of desire raged in me like never before, scaring me with how intensely I experienced the pull of instant attraction to him.

My voice sounded as if it belonged to somebody else as I replied, “The pleasure’s mine.”

His knowing smirk caused my heart to stutter in my chest as I struggled against my hormones that had never gone so haywire over someone before. I mourned the loss of contact when he pulled away to sit down across from me. The experience disoriented me. What the hell just happened?

Emboldened by my lust, my first response had been full of a confident innuendo that was completely foreign to me. With the slight distance between us, I was back to stumbling over what to say next. “Um, hi? Hello. Hi.”

His amused smile at my sudden turn into awkwardness melted me into a quivering puddle. “Hi.”

The single-syllable word sent shivers racing down my spine. What was it about this man that every little thing he did was sexual? Especially how he slid his fingers through the hole of his mug grip, giving me ideas I wasn’t equipped to handle. Christ Almighty, save me from myself. I’m not going to make it.
