Wes300

Sometimes the secrets we keep aren’t as unacceptable as we thought they were.

 Wes has been on his own since he was sixteen, and he’s had to do what he needed to do to survive, even if it meant being a prostitute. He’s never known love, but that starts to change when he meets Taylor. Wes feels wanted as a person for the first time, but he knows Taylor could never accept him, so he flees.

Taylor hadn’t expected to wake up alone on the day after he claimed his mate. He doesn’t even know Wes’ full name or phone number, so he has no way to find him. Just when he thinks he’s lost Wes forever, Wes is attacked and calls a pride member for help. Taylor knows he has to tell Wes about his furry half, but after Wes ran once already, Taylor is scared of his mate’s reaction.

Wes accepts staying with the pride, but can Taylor really accept him and his past? And can Wes get used to living with people—with shifters—when he’s been alone for three years?

And in the meantime, here’s an excerpt featuring our two favorite trouble makers 🙂

 

Wes wasn’t hurting as much as he had when he’d fallen asleep. He liked that, and he wondered if he could get away with sleeping some more, but someone poked his cheek. Realizing that was what had woken him in the first place, he opened his eyes.

He’d thought it might be a kid, because who else would poke you awake, right? But nope, no kids, unless you counted the two guys standing by his bed as overgrown ones. One certainly looked like it, with his pink hair, electric blue sweater, and orange jeans.

The other had Wes blink, then cringe. He reached for the sheet, hoping that hiding under it would make Keenan and his friend go away. Someone poked his foot instead, then pulled on the sheet.

“Doesn’t look like a guy who goes dancing to me.”

“Why, guys who like to dance have a particular face or something? Like, you can tell what someone likes just by looking at them? Is that a Nix thing?”

“No it’s not. He just doesn’t look fun.”

“Might be because he was beaten, what do you think?”

Another poke. “No need to be sarcastic, Kee. I was just pointing out that you said this guy tried to pick up Joshua, but he doesn’t look like much to me.”

“Again, might be the bruises.”

Wes huffed and pushed the sheet away, because Keenan and his friend clearly weren’t going away. “What do you want?”

Keenan gasped. “It speaks!”

The other guy poked Wes’ cheek and Wes batted his hand away. At least doing it didn’t hurt—much. “Go away,” he groused. He didn’t want to look at Keenan.

Keenan hopped on the bed instead, and settled next to Wes’ hip. Wes groaned and contemplated smothering the man with his pillow, but he didn’t think he was up to that just yet.

“This is Nysys. Nysys, Wes.”

Nysys sat on Wes’ other side and Wes felt suddenly overwhelmed and like he should run away before things went bad. “Pleasure to meet you, bye.”

Wes closed his eyes and settled back against his pillow, but a finger poked his cheek again. He sighed and opened his eyes to see Nysys prodding at him. “What?”

“What happened to you?”

“I was beaten by some guys.”

“Why?”

Wes shrugged, pleased when his ribs hurt only a bit. “They didn’t like my haircut?”

“Or the fact you were close to a gay club,” Keenan pointed out.

“Or that,” Wes conceded.

“Joshua said you hurt one of the guys.” Nysys looked far too cheerful for this type of conversation.

“Yeah, well, I wasn’t going down without fighting.”

“Where did you learn to fight? Why did you have a knife? Do you always have one, like one of the bad guys in the movies? Or is it only when you go dancing? Did you have one when you met Joshua? Why did you hit on him?”

“Jeesh, let the man answer,” Keenan told his friend. “He can’t if you don’t shut your flap for at least a few seconds.”

Nysys snapped his mouth shut so fast and hard that Wes heard his teeth clang together. Nysys winced and touched his lips, but he clearly was more worried about obtaining answers, because once he was sure there was no blood or open wounds, he stared at Wes. Wes stared back without saying anything, and Nysys widened his eyes and tilted his head. He did it again, and again, trying to push Wes to talk to him.

“What the fuck are you doing here anyway?” Wes asked instead. “Where’s Taylor?”

Keenan’s eyes lit up. “Taylor? Why’d you want Taylor? Are you already over Joshua? Is it because Joshua’s with Adrian? How’d you meet Taylor? Are you two together? Is he good in bed?”

Nysys reached over Wes and smacked Keenan’s forehead. “And I’m the one who should shut up and let him talk?”

“You weren’t asking important questions!” Keenan protested.

“I so was! Asking about knifes is important.”

“Not more than knowing if Taylor’s good in bed. I bet he is, and even if he isn’t, with an ass like that I’d forgive everything else.”

Release Day!

Benoit’s Surprise Christmas is finally out! You can find it on the Dreamspinner website,
on Amazon, and on the other usual websites.

Belgium expat Benoit Girault has only worked in the administrative department of Toys for All in Milwaukee for a few short months, but it’s long enough for him to miss everyone back home and to fall for coworker Jake Manning—not that Jake ever notices him. Or so Benoit thinks.

Jake notices Benoit all right, but he doesn’t want to risk mixing business with pleasure, not when it could create problems in the office. So when Jake’s friend and boss, Randall, tells him to team up with Benoit to organize a Saint Nicholas party, he’s less than thrilled. But as they work together and Jake nurses Benoit through an illness, he realizes some people might be worth risking it all for.

Elias cover and excerpt

Book 8 in the Gillham Pack Series will be out tomorrow on http://www.extasybooks.com/Elias/

Remember Elias? He’s Thomas’ son, and in his book he finds out his mate is his father’s oldest friend. I’ll let you imagine how that goes down with Thomas 🙂

Life certainly likes to throw curve balls, but they can lead to unexpected pleasures.

 Elias has a nice life now that Kameron is alpha. He’s in his senior year, his father is happily mated with a man, and Elias can finally be himself without fearing someone might hurt him. What could go wrong?

Blake fled Gillham six years earlier, when he realized his best friend’s son, Elias, was his mate. Elias was only twelve at the time, and their alpha was homophobic. But now Blake is an enforcer, and the council sends him back to Gillham, where he knows he’ll have to face both his best friend, Thomas, and Elias.

Elias realizes Blake is his mate as soon as they meet again. He’s happy about it, even though his father certainly isn’t. Blake and Elias decide to wait until Elias graduates to mate, but between creatures that lurk in the dark and new questionable friends, will they make it to June in one piece?

“Grab your coat.”

Eli didn’t know what Corbin had in mind, but he went to get his coat anyway. He also put on his boots, then he went back to Corbin’s room. The door was open and Corbin was on the phone. He hung up, took a picture of his room, and typed something on the phone.

A few seconds later, two men appeared in Corbin’s bedroom.

Eli didn’t yell, because he knew of Nix and how they shimmered, even though he’d never actually seen anyone do it. It was still weird, although not as weird as one of the guys was. He had pink hair, lots of piercings, and the ugliest orange coat Eli had ever seen. Eli knew his dad wouldn’t want him to hang around anyone with so much metal in his skin.

Eli loved it.

“Corbin!” the other guy yelled. He tried to hug Corbin, but Corbin stepped away and held his hands up. The guy pouted but didn’t insist. He looked around the room instead. “Nice room. It’s still a pity you couldn’t stay with us.”

“No one said I couldn’t,” Corbin replied.

Pink-haired man scoffed. “All Morin’s fault. Sometimes I wish I could dump his ass.”

“No you don’t,” normal-looking guy answered. “You luuurve him. You can’t be without him.”

“Shut up. He’s still an ass.”

“Well, he does have a nice ass. If I wasn’t mated to Jonah and you weren’t my best friend, I might want to tap that.”

“Morin’s ass is mine!”

“I know, I know. I’d never do something like that.”

“Thanks, Poodle.”

“Poodle?”

“I’m trying new pet names for Morin.”

“And you’re trying them on me?”

“Why not? At least you won’t yell at me because I use pet names for you.”

“Aww, he didn’t mean it. And you got your revenge.”

Pink-haired guy snickered. “He promised he wouldn’t cross me ever again.”

“I wouldn’t either.”

Corbin cleared his throat and they both looked at him. Eli felt a bit overwhelmed by their chatter, and he couldn’t look away from the pink-orange combination, even though it hurt his eyes.

“This is Eli. Eli, these are Keenan and Nysys,” Corbin said.” Nysys is the colorblind one.”

Nysys’ eyes went round. “Did you just make a joke?” He turned to Keenan. “Did he just make a joke?”

“I think he did,” Keenan replied.

“Maybe it was a good idea to have him move here, then.”

“Can’t be bad anyway, not with Dominic being an ass about Corbin not being an enforcer.”

Nysys snorted. “As if he didn’t have enough of those already.”

“I told him, and he said it was a waste of useful resources.”

“I hate when he’s an ass.”

“Me, too. And he doesn’t like it when I point it out to him, so I told him that if he’d just stop being one, I wouldn’t bug him.”

“What did he say?”

“He threatened to fire me. So I told him that if he did, I’d move here and I’d become Kameron’s PA.”

“You didn’t!”

“I did.”

“What did he say?”

 “He growled and gave me a raise.”

“Guys,” Corbin said with a sigh.

Nysys looked at him. “What did you call us for anyway?”

“Eli needs help.”

Nysys and Keenan turned to look at him, and Eli had the terrifying feeling that he was their prey. He stepped backward and his back hit the wall.

“What do you need us to help you with?” Keenan asked.

“We helped a lot of people. You came to the right place,” Nysys added.

“Technically, he didn’t come anywhere. We did,” Keenan pointed out.

Eli gave Corbin a help me glance, but Corbin shook his head and crossed his arms on his chest.

“I, well, I know who my mate is, but I’m only eighteen and he’s a few years older than my dad, and I think he still sees me as the kid he used to play with years ago.”

“Oooh, kinky,” Keenan exclaimed. “Not that I like daddy play, but to each its own.”

“I don’t like daddy play. I just like him, and I don’t care if he’s older than me.”

“Or than your dad,” Nysys not-so-helpfully added.

“Or than my dad.”

“So what, you want us to help you do what?”

“I want to have sex with him.”

“Of course you do. You’re eighteen.”

“Yeah. Anyway, we’ve been interrupted every time we kissed, so we haven’t done anything yet.”

“And your right hand is tiring.”

Eli blushed. He wasn’t exactly used to talking about sex this freely. Jarrett was his best friend, but he was straight and he didn’t want to know about Eli’s almost non-existent sex life. “Yeah,” he muttered.

Nysys rubbed his hands together, looking positively evil. “Oh, baby. You called the right men for the job.”

“Yeah,” Keenan added. “We’re going to take care of you and your mate, you’ll see.”

Suddenly Eli was scared. Very, very scared.
