If You Were Mine

by Melanie Harlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Theo MacLeod wasn’t supposed to be the one.

Tall, dark and handsome suits me just fine, but the cocky grin, know-it-all attitude, and mammoth ego? No thanks. I only hired him so I wouldn’t have to sit at the singles table again. It was just pretend.

He wasn’t supposed to kiss me.

My heart wasn’t supposed to pound.

We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life.

One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.

We’re nothing alike. He’s a daredevil, and I’m a nervous Nellie. He’s a drifter, and I want to put down roots. He’s an opportunist with a checkered past, and I’m a Girl Scout volunteer.

But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.

I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could.

All he has to do is stay.

Sandra's Review

5 Stars

If You Were Mine is a standalone novel but I have already had the pleasure of meeting Claire. She was first introduced in Man Candy and then again in After We Fall as the best friend to the lovely ladies in those books. I liked her then and love her now. She is a fairy tale type of girl that hasn’t been close to finding a prince, that was until she hired one.

It all started with a wedding. Claire was tired of sitting at the singles table. Tired of all the questions about why she was single. She just was! It’s not like she was looking for love. She just wasn’t feeling it when any of the guys she went out with. She wanted the magic not just a little spark. Lately, there wasn’t even that. So…she did something nobody ever thought she would. She hired a hottie to take her to the wedding. What she didn’t expect was it to feel so real. Theo was a mystery but she wanted him. And for one night she did and it was beyond amazing.

The minute Theo saw Claire he wanted to break all of the rules. She was beautiful. Not only one the outside but he could tell but just watching her that she was just as beautiful on the inside. She was a good woman. Too good for him. That is why he needed to go on this pretend date and walk away. But he couldn’t. He couldn’t resist tasting her. It was suppose to be one night. That was all her could give but she was different. She was dangerous. She could make him want more. And that is what scared him the most. And for someone that enjoyed jumping out of planes, that tells you something.

I loved this story. Theo and Claire are opposites in almost every way but their chemistry is undeniable. He wanted to be on the open road for a lifetime and she wanted to stay in one place. He wasn’t afraid of living but he was afraid of loving. She was afraid of putting herself out there and living the life she deserved. And I am not talking about with a man. But with her art. That was something Theo didn’t understand. She was talented and he wanted her to show the world but she didn’t believe she was ready. These two might be opposites but they bring balance. I loved that Theo saw her and couldn’t believe she wasn’t being worship by someone. He couldn’t believe that he even had that chance but would he fuck it up?

Overall…it’s a beautiful, fun, and oh so sexy ride! It’s about love but it’s also about two scared people trying to get through the journey called life. Will it be together? Or will they just be two people that are together for a season to give that extra push?

P.S It was awesome to get caught up with Jaime and Quinn & Margot and Jack!

Quotes:

“God, why can’t you just rent a boyfriend for a night like you can rent a movie?” Jaime grinned over the rim of her martini glass. “Boyfriend On Demand?”
“Exactly!” I snapped my fingers. “You could just scroll through, pick the one that looks good, and he’s all yours for twenty-four hours. I’d even pay more for HD.”
“Huge Dick?”
I laughed. “Yeah.”

“Good. Because I have no limits to test, but I’ll be damn happy to test yours.”

He was an enigma—so open and generous with his body but so closed off when it came to anything personal.

Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters
Publication Date: February 28th, 2017

TWO YEARS

Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.

TWO DAYS

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.

TWO HOURS

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.

TWO MINUTES

For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.

TWO SECONDS

For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.

TWO BREATHS

For me to walk out the door.

TWO HEARTBEATS

For it all to be over.

Kara's Review

5 Stars

Dirty Filthy Rich Boys is the prequel to Dirty Filthy Rich Men and oh boy does this series start off with a bang! I’m a huge fan of Laurelin Paige and I’ve been waiting for this new series. She never fails to deliver the goods. The perfect writing, the hot, sexy characters, the humor and the heat. Since this is the prequel, we get to meet Sabrina, Weston King and Donovan Kincaid. Sabrina and Weston are students at Harvard and Donovan is the teacher’s assistant. Sabrina is on a scholarship and doesn’t have a well-known name like most of the students. She also has a major crush on Weston. He has no idea who she is until Donovan notices her. Then, her greatest dream is about to come true. Or is it? Donovan is a dirty filthy rich boy, but not the boy she wants. Right? I’m totally sucked in to this series and I can’t wait for more! Bring it on!

 

Jesus, I could fall inside that dimple and never crawl back out. That dimple was going to be the death of me.

Sandra's Review

5 Stars

Dirty Filthy Rich Boys is a free prequel to the Dirty Filthy Rich Men Duet. It is actually the beginning of the first book. A little tease into their world…

Sabrina was fascinated by the boys at Harvard especially Weston King. He was everything that she should hate. Cocky. Rich. Manwhore. But there was something about him that she wanted. She was obsessed. She wanted him to notice her but not only for one night. She wanted more but the way it was going, he would never notice her but somebody else did. Donovan Kinkade is Weston’s best friend and mentor. He was also one of Sabrina’s teaching assistants. He saw her. Wanted to help her. She didn’t want anything to do with the way he wants to help. Or does she? Ever since the night he talked to her she can’t stop thinking about him. Will she get dirty with a filthy boy?

I am so going to fall in love with this series. I am already feeling lusty towards one of the men. And well…I am a book whore so I am also feeling something for the other. Damn. I am so glad that Laurelin isn’t making us wait too long for the next book. Thanks Laurelin. Xoxo. This was just the beginning and the title is already living up to its name.

Quotes:

His voice sent shivers down my spine. I drank in every word, yet sentences went by without me comprehending a single phrase.

“Thanks,” he said, smiling just enough to show that wicked dimple. Jesus, I could fall inside that dimple and never crawl back out. That dimple was going to be the death of me.

He knew the secret I hid behind smiles and nods, and now I knew the agony he hid behind ice and steel.

Blog Tour, 5 Heart Reviews & Excerpt- The Do-Over, Julie Richman

32604708

February 2, 2017 By

sbpr-thedoover-bt

Synopsis

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Julie A. Richman a new, stand alone Second Chance Romance

~ Sometimes, one degree is all that separates you from the one you were meant to be with ~

Wes Bergman was sex on a stick.

We’d been circling one another our entire lives, mingling at the same clubs… attending the same events…sharing mutual acquaintances…yet we’d never actually met.

Until…we both boarded a Windjammer Cruise in the Caribbean. And it was like meeting my long, lost best friend for the first time. I hadn’t ever connected with a guy that way before.

But Wes had a girlfriend. So, when the week was over, he walked off the ship, unknowingly taking a piece of my heart with him.

Now, over a decade later, newly divorced, I’m the proverbial fish out of water. Dating has totally changed. Apps. Swipe left. Swipe right. Catfishing. Men my age want two things: twenty-five-year-olds—like my ex’s new child bride of a wife—or just a quick hook-up.

After a string of bad dates, I finally did something I never thought I’d do. I had a hot one-night stand with a really handsome guy I met online who didn’t even know my real name.

Turned out Mr. Fling is a big shot for my company’s newest client. And just my luck, that client’s CEO is none other than…Wes Bergman.

Now I’m separated by one degree again from the man who stole my heart.

And Mr. Fling could destroy my chance of what I want most – a Do-Over with Wes.

Kara's Review

5 Stars

The Do-Over is the newest gem by the absolutely, fabulous Julie Richman. I’ve been a fan of Julie’s from the very start. Searching for Moore was one of the books I read years ago that touched my soul. It was fresh and intoxicating and I loved every word of it and all of her books that followed after. The Do-Over is a second chance love story with a little twist. Tara and Wes meet and it’s perfection. Fate seems to have finally put them together after years of missed one degree of separation situations. Now, here they are on a boat, thousands of miles from home. They just click. It’s like the missing piece of a puzzle. They spend one night talking until sunrise and it’s the best night of their lives. Then Tara is told off by Wes’ sister and that’s that. Fast forward fifteen years later. Tara is divorced and finally ready to date again. She has the greatest daughter and loves her job, but she needs to get back out there. She ends up having a one night stand that ends badly, but she’s not going to let that get her down. She’s going to forget about him and move on. When she finds out her company is meeting a new client and it turns out to be Wes, she’s thrilled to finally see him again. But, when the jerky one night stand is Wes’ second in command, she’s afraid he’ll ruin anything she could possibly have with Wes. Tara and Wes get their second chance. Their do-over. But will it finally be their time? Will this be when they will get their happily ever after? I can’t even express how much I loved this story! Julie Richman is the tour guide through the memories of my heart and soul. It’s like her writing speaks to me on another level. She knows exactly what I need when I need it. Schooner and now Wes. The mature, older characters who are sexy, witty, funny and wise. Speaking of Schooner…I cried when we get to see him, Mia, Seth and Henry again. Overall, it’s more than a story of second chances. It’s a story of love, loss, pain, family, friendship and life lessons. I laughed, cried, sighed and hugged my kindle when it was over! Thank you, Julie!

 

“T, there is no better dream I could have asked for than our paths crossing again and you becoming part of my life. I feel like it was divine intervention.”

 

“You are the woman. The only woman. You got that?”

 

“You should be illegal.”

“Why?”

“Because you’re intoxicating and addictive and I crave you.”

Sandra's Review

5 Stars

The Do-Over is a standalone novel by the amazing Julie Richman. I love second chance romances and this was a great one with some twists. The synopsis explains the story perfectly so I will try to make this short and sweet. This is Tara and Wes’s story….

One week. One cruise ship. Many sparks. Tara and Wes spend one night under the stars until morning. But after the week was over, they went their separate ways. Wes goes back to his girlfriend. And Tara moves on and even gets married. And now, fifteen years later she was starting over. Recently divorced and moving on with her life once more. She started dating again but it’s on big mess of epic proportions. She even tried doing the one-night stand thing. It was hot but so not worth it. Especially when she sees him again.

Fifteen years later. One job. One CEO. Sparks are still flying. Fate has brought Wes and Tara back to each other. They never forgot about the night they stayed up all night. The night it felt like they found their best friend. Their “What If.” What if he didn’t have a girlfriend? What if his sister didn’t tell her to stay away? What if they stayed connected? And now…what if they can see where this connection brings them? They were always one step apart but is this their time to step side by side?

I loved this story!! Second chances are one of my favorites! I felt that connection between Wes and Tara from the moment they met. And when they see each other again, I still felt it and cheered them on. They are so fucking cute. They are beautiful, sexy, and fun together. But, it’s not always easy. There are obstacles. There are added bonuses. And overall…they are real.

Overall…Once I started, I didn’t want to stop. The writing hooked me in. The characters made me fall. I laughed, cried, and felt the heat. I also loved the supporting characters. They could be bitchy. They could be supportive. And so much fun!!

🔹 THERE IS NO CHEATING IN THE BOOK.

Quotes:

Ah Wes, I bet you are the king of foreplay because you certainly know how to thrill a woman with anticipation.

“You need a pool boy.” Laynie was dead serious.
“That would work much better if I had a backyard and a pool.” I lamented.
“Excuses, excuses.” She shook her head while focusing on cutting a slice of grilled eggplant.
“Bitch.”

“Accosted?” Jonathan laughed. “Ooo, Tara’s pissed. She’s using big words.”

 

Excerpt

His hand slowly stroking up and down the outside of my thigh is what roused me from my dream state. It was so soft and tender that I was getting more and more turned on with every movement. With my eyes still closed, I enjoyed the sensation.  It wasn’t until his lips started brushing my shoulder, that I was unable to stifle a moan, revealing that I was awake.

“Good morning,” his whisper was hoarse.

“Mmm, good morning.” I stretched my body against his and turned my head to see his face hovering over mine, before our lips met.

“Sleep good?”

“Surprisingly, I did. I was so exhausted. Sorry for passing out on you last night,” I apologized.

“I think we both passed out the moment our heads hit the pillows.” Wes’ hand had migrated from my thigh to my stomach, where he softly drew circles with his fingertips.

Rolling over to face him, I pushed my hair out of the way, silently praying my humidity enhanced curls didn’t make me look like a deranged housewife, scaring the erection right out of the man. Slinging a leg over his thigh, I instantly got my answer. The crazy morning coif was not a cock killer. Thank God!

“You’re a morning person, I see.” Hiding my smile was not a possibility.

“Yeah, I am,” Wes laughed, moving closer to me, his eyes filled with the unmistakable desire to become lovers, something I’d dreamed about on the deck of a windjammer long ago.

“You can wake me up like this anytime.” I needed to let him know it was okay. He’d said he’d take it as slow as I wanted it and what I wanted right now was a slow rhythm of him plowing into me. Hard.

“Are you hard to wake up?” He was pressed up against me.

“I think you’ll figure out the secrets to rousing me.”

“You’ve already figured out the secrets to arousing me.” His voice still had that sexy edge of morning roughness to it, making me want to skip all foreplay and have him inside me.

“I’ll bet you have a few more secrets I can discover,” I said against his lips, as I shifted the leg I had slung over him, pressing my heat and wetness against his already throbbing cock.

Wes groaned and I could feel his smile against my lips. “You know you’re going to make it impossible to make slow, sweet love to you.”

“Good, because I don’t want it slow and sweet.”

Wes flipped me onto my back, “I can easily accommodate your wishes. Are you on anything or do I need to…”

“We’re good,” I assured him.

“Yes, we are.” He kissed my neck, then swiftly pulled my tank top over my head tossing it to the floor. “We’re going to be really good together. Of that, I have no doubt.”

And I knew he was right. Being with this man had been so perfect from the night we met. We meshed with ease and the result was pure joy.

The warmth in his eyes and smile made my breath catch, and in that moment, I was flooded with overwhelming emotion at how much I wanted him. How much I’d always wanted him. It was more than lust, beyond the heat of the moment. Wes Bergman was the man I had always wanted, from the night we met. That was clear to me now.

“I vote we skip the foreplay.” I wriggled out of my underwear.

“You’re on.” His smile told me he was taking on the challenge.

“You’re in,” I gasped, my breath catching in my throat, surprised at the swiftness with which he filled my request.

Theo MacLeod wasn’t supposed to be the one.

Tall, dark and handsome suits me just fine, but the cocky grin, know-it-all attitude, and mammoth ego? No thanks. I only hired him so I wouldn’t have to sit at the singles table again. It was just pretend.

He wasn’t supposed to kiss me.

My heart wasn’t supposed to pound.

We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life.

One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.

We’re nothing alike. He’s a daredevil, and I’m a nervous Nellie. He’s a drifter, and I want to put down roots. He’s an opportunist with a checkered past, and I’m a Girl Scout volunteer.

But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.

I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could.

All he has to do is stay.

Synopsis

 

CHARMED FOR LIFE?
 
Thanos Agapiou has always been a charmer. For over two millennia, the
vampire had no problem acquiring whom and what he wanted with a flash of his
handsome smile. He took for granted the boyish good looks he presumed he’d
possess for the rest of eternity.
 
How very wrong he was.
 
A nearly fatal attack distorted his entire existence. With his
appearance now matching the title many have bestowed their kind—monster—he
hides away from the world and all of those who know him, including his Ancient,
Eton.
Until one night when a stranger draws him out from the shadows.
 
OR CURSED FOR ETERNITY?
 
Ever since Paris Antoniou was thrust into a world of vampires, his
reality has become stranger than the history and the myths he’s studied for the
past decade.
 
When he learns the truth about his origins and the power he wields, his
confusion and fear have him running for his life. What he doesn’t expect is to
run into the arms of Thanos—a vampire who doesn’t intimidate him as much as he
intrigues him.
 
WHAT HAS THE POWER TO MAKE YOU WANT TO SURVIVE?
 
As their worlds collide under extraordinary circumstances, an attraction
neither can deny takes hold. But will that be enough to save Thanos from his
demons, or will he condemn Paris to his fate?
 
Destinies have been changed. Lines have been crossed. And, with tales of
the vampire race coming to an end, who will make the ultimate sacrifice?
After all, in a world run by vampires and gods, only one can be the true
Master among the Monsters.

5 Stars

Thanos is the third novel in the Masters among Monsters series. You must read the first two books to fully understand the book. It is the conclusion to an awesome series about vampires, Gods, and Demigods. I am not usually a paranormal reader but I am an Ella fan so I gave it a chance and she hooked me into their world. Plus, it’s M/M M/M/M, and M/F! This story is more about Thanos but it covers all of the characters’ relationships from the previous books.

Thanos is forever changed. He was once a charmer with a wicked sexy grin that could bring anyone to their knees. After being attacked his once gorgeous face is now disfigured beyond repair. He didn’t want to leave the confides of his chambers to see anyone even his Eton. His Ancient. The one he is bonded to until death. He doesn’t think he is worth it. Not anymore. The only one he seems to want to communicate with is a complete stranger named Paris. He doesn’t even know where the man came from but he feels some kind of connection to him. Thanos isn’t comfortable enough to show him who he really is but Paris is determined to know Thanos. He is surprisingly intrigued by this man hiding behind a mask.

Paris was thrown into a world that he didn’t understand. Why was he here? Why was he so attracted to a man that could kill him in an instant? He needs answers. And when he meets with the others, he is met with confusion, anger, and compassion. The vampires, their first sired, and their new yielding are determined to put all of the pieces together. For all of their sakes, throughout the process Paris will learn more about Thanos and his demons. Will he still feel the attraction and connection to him after he finds out about his past? And what about Eton? How will he handle a new man coming into his first sired’s life?

I can’t really explain what the hell is going on in this world of Vampires, Gods, and Demigods. It’s clearly understood while reading it but to explain. You have to read it! I was hooked in from the very beginning until the very end. I have also been binge watching The Vampire Diaries and was up until 3:30am last night watching it. I am actually surprised I didn’t have dreams of vampires. Anyway, it’s a complex world involving complicated characters that don’t even know if they can feel. They want to believe they feel love. They know they feel attraction but love?

I love this series because I feel like I am transported into another world. A dangerous one. One full of mind-reading vampires. And damn if they aren’t sexy! They are demanding but do show other sides of themselves. Thanos might not feel worthy but he is wanted and needed. Will Paris be the one to show him that he is worthy even without his beautiful face?

Overall…it’s so addicting!! It has twists. It has beauty. It has intrigued. And it has evil. It wasn’t what I expected but it was just as amazing.

Quotes:

“You are far too curious, Paris Antoniou.”
“And you are far too interesting to hide away in a room full of darkness and shadows.”

“Bad enough that you will not be able to walk after I do what needs to be done to you.”

“I swear, Leo. You have the libido of a teenager.”

5 Stars

Thanos by Ella Frank is the last book in the Masters among Monsters series. I’m sad to see these very complex, sexy and deep characters go. I read the series because I love Ella, but I also love vampires. Thanos isn’t just about him. All of the characters are in it and I loved that! I’ve missed them. Thanos has been a vampire for a very long time. He was recently attacked and is disfigured so he wears a mask and hood. He doesn’t let anyone see him. Paris, a college and friend of Leo’s somehow ends up with Thanos and he’s welcome there. Paris is scared and has no idea what’s going on, but he’s attracted to Thanos. He wants to know him. He wants to see him. He wants to touch him. We learn how Thanos became a vampire. We get to see what he was thinking, where he came from and we get to see his Ancient, Eton. Leo, Vasilios and Alastair are still a trio and they again made me laugh and swoon. Isadora and Elias are seeing where things are taking them…and her Ancient. The story is complex, but not hard to follow. It’s intriguing and kept my attention. I love this odd family of Demigods and vampires and I’m sorry to see their story come to an end, BUT I absolutely love the way Ella wrapped it all up. I couldn’t stop smiling at the end. Thank you, Ella!

 

“You just joined your life with two -“

“Of the sexiest beings to walk to earth?”

“I was going to say the most powerful. But I suppose we can go with your version.”

“How gracious of you.”

Talk Dirty to Me, an all-new second chance STANDALONE from Lulu Wright is now Live!!!

talkdirtytomecover

Mark Carrington already broke my heart once.

This sexy, temperamental playboy might dominate the major leagues, but there’s no way in hell I’m letting him play ball with my heart again.

Until I find myself facing him down every morning on our new radio show, and his undeniable hotness starts to break down my resistance–and almost erase all the memories of how he dumped me back in high school.

We’ve both grown up since then, and now Mark is even more gorgeous and infuriating than ever. But I can’t get away from him–not when my beloved alternative rock station depends on his sexy ass to avoid getting bought out by a greedy corporation.

But when he corners me in the production room to compliment my sexy radio voice and admire my David Bowie T-shirt, it’s all I can do to keep my clothes on and my hands off of him. So I don’t.

And the more I get to know him, the more I realize he’s hiding a big heart behind all that swagger. And the deeper we get, the deeper I fall.

Screwmates, an all-new standalone, laugh out loud romantic comedy from Kayti McGee is now LIVE!

I knew from the first time I saw Marc Kirby that I was screwed.

Big eyes, scruffy face, brown curls – yes, yes, and yes. The man is wicked hot.

He’s also my roommate, and since I work nights and he’s at class all day – it’s like living alone at half the rent.

Then an unexpected night off turns into an unexpected morning in Marc’s bed, but it turns out we can’t even figure out the screwing.

This is not great news for Marc who’s going on a “bangcation” at the end of the summer – a whole month in France that he’s planned to spend getting busy with the women of Paris.

It’s also not great news for me for obvious reasons.

With both of us needing work on our skills, there’s only one logical solution to our predicament.

Told you I was screwed.

Synopsis:

CHARMED FOR LIFE?

Thanos Agapiou has always been a charmer. For over two millennia, the vampire had no problem acquiring whom and what he wanted with a flash of his handsome smile. He took for granted the boyish good looks he presumed he’d possess for the rest of eternity.

How very wrong he was.

Until one night when a stranger draws him out from the shadows.

OR CURSED FOR ETERNITY?

Ever since Paris Antoniou was thrust into a world of vampires, his reality has become stranger than the history and the myths he’s studied for the past decade.

When he learns the truth about his origins and the power he wields, his confusion and fear have him running for his life. What he doesn’t expect is to run into the arms of Thanos—a vampire who doesn’t intimidate him as much as he intrigues him.

WHAT HAS THE POWER TO MAKE YOU WANT TO SURVIVE?

As their worlds collide under extraordinary circumstances, an attraction neither can deny takes hold. But will that be enough to save Thanos from his demons, or will he condemn Paris to his fate?

Destinies have been changed. Lines have been crossed. And, with tales of the vampire race coming to an end, who will make the ultimate sacrifice?

After all, in a world run by vampires and gods, only one can be the true Master among the Monsters.

Excerpt

And The Blood Shall Run…

LONG AGO, THE Ancients of the vampire race searched for, and created, the one they wished to walk alongside for all eternity—their first-sired. They shared with them their blood, knowledge, and power. Thus creating a complex relationship where the first-sired’s existence integrated and tangled with the very being who made them, solidifying them as one.

Only three such connections exist within the vampiric hierarchy.

One born out of lust.

One born out of loneliness.

And the final born out of need.

As Eton, Ancient of Thanos Agapiou, walked away from where his progeny had sequestered himself with another, the steel-like binding of calm that his first-sired’s presence had once afforded unraveled and snapped like a chain severed. His permanent absence was now the only thing he had left to offer his Thanos to counter his ultimate betrayal. And he knew by giving it exactly what fate he had just sealed for himself.

After all this time, and Thanos’s strict control throughout the centuries, Eton had almost forgotten the allure of that which now stirred to life inside of him. But as the desperate, soul-searing need for destruction clawed for freedom, he recalled the reason for the desperate measures he’d taken the last time this transformation had occurred. Because without Thanos by his side, the infection that afflicted him threatened the very existence of his kind.

It was bound to happen. Just as it had once before. Tonight had been the final cut, but the distance, the separation, that had begun nights before when Thanos had demanded his absence…

“STAY WHERE YOU are. Do not come any closer.”

“Thanos—”

“I said do not come any closer.”

Eton stopped where he was, obeying Thanos’s words, as he always did. “Let me talk to you.”

“I do not want to talk,” Thanos spat. “Especially not with you.”

The venom in those words stung.

“Thanos—”

“I said no. You will at least grant me the simple courtesy of your absence, since I am already to endure an eternity of torment you have inflicted.”

Determined to get through to the angry male across from him, Eton pushed on. “It won’t ail you forever. You will soon heal—”

“Heal?” Thanos thundered as he rounded on Eton.

Eton schooled his earnest features, but he was a millisecond too late.

“You cannot even look at me without flinching. Do not talk to me of healing. This”—Thanos pointed to his scarred face—“this will never heal.”

He was right. Eton knew that, though his appearance didn’t matter to him. When he looked at Thanos, all he saw was his first-sired.

The private lives of the Ancients were rarely discussed. To Vasilios and Diomêdês, their first-sired represented the ones they’d chosen to take under their wing. Someone to share their eternal existence with and ones who would follow them, be loyal to them, and obey.

His and Thanos’s relationship was not that way at all. They kept their bond hidden, and for him, Thanos was the one who owned him—the one who calmed everything that ran riot inside him. O kýriós tou. His master.

“Get out.”

“You don’t mean—”

“I said. Get. Out.”

 

ETON STAGGERED TO a halt halfway down the hall, and raised a hand to steady himself against the wall. The memory of that night was as vivid now as it was back then, and it had brought with it something far more dangerous than a disconnect between an Ancient and his first-sired.

His teeth tingled, wanting to punch free, and the skin around his lips drew painfully taut. It had been so many centuries since he’d sensed the dark presence within that the force in which it begun to resurface was overwhelming. He needed to get back to the sanctuary of his bedchambers. Back to the one place where he could lock himself inside and use magic to ensure his captivity—if only he could focus long enough to get there. He was grateful that no one was there to witness his undoing.

Eton’s hand shook as he dug his fingertips into the stone until they bled. He needed that bite of pain, since Thanos wasn’t there to offer it, that sting to distract himself from the other, more pressing needs rising up inside of him. As it was, there was no way he’d be able to concentrate long enough to fade while this ugliness was fighting for dominance. His body trembled under his effort to control himself, and just when he thought he had a chance in hell of grasping its leash, Kronos, one of Alasdair’s newlings, came around the far end of the hall.

Eton’s nostrils flared as he scented the male who’d come to a standstill like a deer in the brightest of headlights. As if he sensed the immediate peril he’d unknowingly stumbled upon, Kronos looked around, trying to locate anyone else as he swallowed. Eton heard the reaction as if it were his own, and lowered his eyes to the ground before digging his fingers deeper into the shale under his palm.

“Eton, my Lord,” Kronos said. “I was just coming to—”

“Run,” Eton interrupted, and the low pitch of his voice was not only a warning to this young vampire, but a fucked-up request from the other side of him. The monstrous side.

“Run? But—”

Eton raised his head, and when his eyes, which he knew now would be blood red, met Kronos’s, the vampire took a step back, as if realizing just how much danger he was in.

“Run,” Eton said once again, and this time his voice sounded as though it had been grated over the sharpest, most jagged of edges. It was hoarse, torn, and so foreign that Eton was as stunned as Kronos that it had come from him.

“I…I was coming to check on Thanos,” Kronos said, and then stopped talking when he noted the change that had begun. Eton knew exactly what the young male was seeing. It was a sight only three others had ever borne witness to—and survived.

Kronos’s fangs dropped down in an automatic response to the threat metamorphosing before him. There was shock stamped over his pale features, his entire body trembled, and as he inched away, Eton caught the movement and flashed over in front of the male. His hand jerked out and his bloodied fingertips gripped Kronos’s throat in a punishing hold as he hauled him up and in line with what was a distorted version of the face he wore as Eton. “I told you to run.”

Kronos opened his mouth to respond, but his protestation was never heard. Eton’s fist slammed through the male’s breastbone, and a harsh wheeze expelled from between Kronos’s lips. The cracking and splintering of his ribs only heightened the pleasure Eton’s monster thrived on as he took a hold of the heart within the vampire’s chest cavity and squeezed. As Eton’s fingers sank into the cold organ, Kronos’s eyes widened.

“Yes,” Eton hissed. “You are finally seeing why… Why I told you to flee. Aren’t you, neare?”

“But…” Kronos gasped. “But…why? What are you?”

Eton’s nails extended from each finger with painful precision. But where vampire’s nails were known to extend to pointed tips, his curled into sharp, talon-like claws that scraped the delicate membrane surrounding Kronos’s heart.

“I am daimon, Kronos. A hellish monster that should have been eliminated many years ago. I am a reminder of what dwells within us all.”

Kronos shook his head, and Eton could hear his frenzied thoughts. What’s wrong with him? This isn’t Eton. He’s the calm one. He won’t kill me…

He was right in one sense—Eton wouldn’t kill him. He had made it his mission to be as genteel and accommodating as could be over the years between the last time this happened and now. But…he was no longer thinking as Eton.

As the turmoil inside Eton swirled to a frenzied height of consciousness, he twisted his gnarled hand and then tore it from Kronos’s chest, ripping the vampire’s heart from his body. When the male went limp in his grasp, Eton dropped him to the floor and brought the heart to his nose, where he took a deep inhale.

The demon reveled in its victory as it slowly slithered back to the cracks within his soul, and then he let the organ roll from his palm and land by its lifeless owner at his feet.

His claws retracted and his body twitched as he came back to himself, and as he stood in the silent catacomb of the hall, the realization of what he’d just done slammed into him. Eton turned his hands over to see the scarlet liquid staining his pale skin, and reveled in the thrill it gave him.

Ever so slowly, he raised his hand to his mouth and licked a path along his bloodied fingers, and the red haze of the creature roared to life, threatening to take full control once more.

The metallic thunk of a lock sounded, catching his attention, and when his name was called, Eton realized he must’ve let that roar free. He pivoted on the balls of his feet and was stunned to see that Thanos had come out into the hall.

Ever since his disfigurement, Thanos had refused to leave his chambers. But even with the dark hood on and the half-face skull mask he’d asked for, Eton would know the set of those broad shoulders anywhere. Not to mention the sheer height of him.

Thanos’s blue eyes shifted to the lifeless body by Eton’s feet, and when he raised them once again, Eton knew the vampire understood what had just happened out there.

“Eton—”

Before Thanos could say anything more, though, Eton snarled and took delight in the way Thanos backed up. Oh yes, as one of the few who remotely understood the hideous thing inside of him, Thanos knew exactly the kind of danger he was in, and the flare of his irises was a dead giveaway that he knew he was the cause of it.

That’s right, kyrie mou, Eton shoved into Thanos’s mind. You wanted your freedom. You wanted Eton to leave. And we both know that is the only way this can now end.

And with that, the Ancient who was once Eton faded from the hall.
