NEW RELEASE: A Marine for Two Bears, Bear Mtn #14

With the werewolf issue still hanging over their heads, Bear Mountain’s alpha has tapped ex-Marine, Captain Deacon Jaquobi to come up with a plan for the valley’s protection. Deacon comes, not so willingly—but upon arrival—he comes face to face with his fated mate.

Glenn Ashland is the valley’s grocer. A single father to two twenty-somethings, he’s lived the last sixteen years mourning the deaths of his mates. Until meeting Deacon, romance wasn’t even on his radar—but he can’t ignore the attraction he feels for the mysterious shifter.

Deacon has to pull out a full-scale offensive to tempt Glenn closer, but a wrench is thrown into the mix when Deacon learns he has a second mate, Emmanuel. How can he hold on to a skittish Glenn and seduce an omega at the same time?

And then there’s the most important issue. Dragons are only supposed to get one chance at love in their immortal life… why is he getting two bears?

Glenn began ringing up the sale and watching the other male from the corner of his eye. Once the transaction was complete, he bid the male goodbye before another basket landed on his counter.

That icy blue stare met his, and Glenn felt a rush blow through his body. He drew in the male’s scent… only to come up short. Nothing? How could he have no scent?

A flicker of a smile crossed the male’s lips. “My name is Deacon. Am I to guess you are the proprietor here?”

Glenn nodded. “I am.”

“I understand you’ve been having some problems with getting supplies into your store.”

Glenn used the back of his hand to brush a bit of sweat and hair from his eyes. He’d spent all morning hauling cases of food and necessities and was sure he looked like hell. “You could say that.”

“The alpha has asked me to come up with a plan that will help with transit. I’d like to hear your concerns.”

Another customer stopped behind Deacon, basket laden. Glenn waved the male on and took the basket. “Gold or barter?”

“I brought the twelve dozen eggs and put them in your cooler,” the male said. “The rest, I’ll pay in silver, if that’s okay?”

“Sure thing.” Glenn started ringing up the order, eyeing Deacon. Any other time, he could get one of his boys to man the register, but the shelves desperately needed filling. “Mornings are always real busy for me. Maybe you can come back later.”

“What are you doing tonight?” Deacon asked.

Glenn shrugged, caught off guard by the question. “I don’t know… nothing, I suppose.”

“Then you can have dinner with me. Mountain Inn, say, seven o’clock?”

Glenn froze a moment, as did several of the customers nearby as they turned to look and be nosy.

His own mouth dropped, a little stunned.

Deacon smiled, and Glenn was sure he felt it right down to the tips of his toes. “So you can tell me your issues and concerns, of course. You seem like a busy man, but you’ve got to eat, right?”

Glenn nodded. “Yeah. I can meet you there at seven.”

“Good,” Deacon said with a wide grin before leaving his basket behind and heading for the door.

“Wait, do you need this?” Glenn said, grabbing the basket.

Deacon turned with a wicked grin. He lifted one brow. “Bring them with you. If you’d like.”

Glenn slid the basket across the counter and looked inside. There was a bottle of lube and a box of condoms. Heat flooded his face. Lifting his gaze, he watched Deacon’s back disappear through the door.

Need slammed into him like nothing he’d felt in years. Decades. His tongue moved out to wet his lips as he felt his cock thicken in his jeans. A shudder raced through him.


Turning back to the customer he was midway through ringing up, he froze. All eyes were on him. Heat filled his face once more before he tucked Deacon’s basket out of sight. Embarrassment made it hard to breathe as he continued to ring the male up, as well as the two after him.

Once the counter emptied, Henry sauntered over, a broad smile on his lips. “Got a date tonight, Pops?”

Glenn violently shook his head. Perhaps a bit too violently. “I’m a bit old for dates.”

“Old? Sure,” his twenty-year old said with a grin… a grin quickly that faded. “But you’re still alive."

Guest Author: Victoria Vallo and Shackled

Welcome Victoria Vallo back to my blog as she shares her new release, Shackled -- the first book in her Imprisoned series.

If you commit a crime on Vaharis 6, there’s more than one way to work off your sentence…

Matthew knows today is his last chance. If he doesn’t get an offer to work off his sentence outside the prison’s walls, he’ll be sent deeper into the hellish place and left at the mercy of the other prisoners.

Varan only wants someone to do his grunt work for him, but when he sees Matthew, something from his past takes hold of him again. He wants to make the man submit in every way, and the prison warden’s greed makes it possible for him to buy the chance to do exactly that.

So Matthew is saved at the last possible moment… only to find himself bound to a man who seems determined to break and possess him, body and soul.


As Varan prepared their dinner, he asked himself why he’d admitted that Matthew reminded him of someone. If Matthew was smart, he’d end up using that information against Varan. He couldn’t let Matthew do that to him. Letting this man best him would simply drive the knife of his first heartache deeper. He finished with the food—chunks of rehydrated meat and vegetables he’d bought on Vaharis 6—and carried two plates to the bedroom.

Matthew lay there with his eyes closed, but he stirred and looked up when he realized he wasn’t alone. Varan set the food down and unbound Matthew. He put the cuffs back on, again placing his hands behind his back. Varan sat on the bed beside him and reached for one plate.

“Are you allergic to anything? The fresh veggies are from Vaharis. I get fresh when I can. Everything else is rehydrated. We’ll be stopping frequently enough we won’t have to live off it.” He held up a chunk of meat.

Matthew just stared at him. “You’re going to feed me?”

Varan smiled. It was part of his plan to force a bond, to make Matthew depend on him for everything. “I want to.” That was true, actually. He found it erotic in a way.

Matthew hesitated and chewed his lower lip. “No,” he said after a long time. “I’m not allergic to anything.”

“Good.” Varan put the meat to Matthew’s lips.

Matthew opened his mouth, and he actually moaned as he chewed. Then he looked down as if embarrassed.

“Don’t be ashamed. I know the prison food was awful,” Varan said. “My last charge was suffering severe malnutrition. I had to put him on fluids the first few days.”

“Did you treat him this way, too?” Matthew asked.

Varan fed him another piece of meat. “No. I’ve been a keeper twice. It was purely business.” He shrugged one shoulder. “They both seemed willing enough, but…” He didn’t know what he wished to say.


Varan dipped the fork into the veggies. “I didn’t want them.”

“They weren’t attractive?”

“No. They were very handsome. Nice bodies.”

Matthew looked at the plate of food. “But I remind you of someone.” His gaze held a little fear, as if he worried Varan would be angry.


Matthew hesitated to take the next bite, but eventually he opened his mouth. After he’d swallowed, he said, “You don’t want me to ask, but the best way to prevent that would’ve been not telling me at all.”

“I’m very aware of my mistake.”

“It’s hard not to be curious.”

Matthew stopped asking questions and focused on eating, obviously very hungry. Varan smiled as he spooned up the last of the food. “Perhaps it’s a test. Or maybe I want you to ask so I can punish you.” 

“Punish me how?” Matthew asked, shrinking back a little.

Varan set the plate aside and leaned in close. “It would be a very sensual experience, though there might be a little pain. It would lead to pleasure by the time I was done.”

“You said I shouldn’t be afraid.”

Kissing Matthew’s neck, Varan said, “And you shouldn’t be. I won’t truly harm you.”

After giving Matthew some water, he unbound him so he could relieve himself. He left Matthew alone in the bathroom and ate his food. Matthew took a long time, and Varan wondered what the younger man was thinking. When Matthew finally came out, he got some insight into that.

“Do I have to do anything but suck your cock tonight?” Matthew asked.

“Blunt. I like that.”

Matthew rubbed his wrists. “I was wondering what I could do in exchange for not being bound all the time.”

“It will only be when we’re alone. Out in public, I’ll have a collar and leash for you.” He leaned back on his elbows on the bed, waiting for Matthew’s reaction.


Varan nodded slowly. “I won’t make you crawl, but yes, a leash. You’ve seen them before, on slaves and submissives. Pets, too.”

“I’m not any of those things.”

Varan stood up and went over to him. “But you are mine to do with as I please. If you displease me, I can send you back.”

“Naked and bound and scared of being punished. That’s what you want in a lover?” Matthew’s eyes hardened now, the fire in them exciting Varan.

“Naked and bound, yes. Not so much scared as submissive. You’ve done well so far.” He snaked one arm around Matthew. “Don’t spoil it, little one.”

“Don’t spoil my six months of sexual slavery? Are you kidding?”

Varan tightened his grip. “I said I won’t fuck you until you truly want me.”

“But you’re gonna make me suck your cock tonight, right?”

“You didn’t protest when I pleasured you earlier. You even thanked me after I got you off and swallowed your load.”

Matthew looked away. “I don’t know why I did that.”

Varan dragged Matthew with him and threw him down on the bed. “Because you meant it. You’re grateful you ended up in the hands of a man who didn’t rape you the moment you came into his possession.” He climbed on top of Matthew. “A man who gets you hard the way I do.”

NEW RELEASE -- Hungry for His Wolf

Alpha of the Eastern Wolves, owner of McManus Security, and confidant to the king, Julian has his hands full. He doesn’t have time for love, but he’s not above enjoying a little lust from time to time, especially after meeting the new Coywolf senator he can’t seem to stop thinking about.

Jared feels an instant attraction to the alpha and willingly falls into bed with him—before misfortune threatens to change both of their lives.

When Julian stands up and takes responsibility for his actions, Jared is stripped of everything he is. Handed over to Julian as mere chattel, Jared can’t help but rebel at every turn.

But he can’t fight the growing feelings he has for the alpha…


“Your black and white view of this world needs some gray added to it. There are ten sides to consider when making an impactful decision. Your youth only allows you to see two.”

“Perhaps you are simply overcomplicating a simple issue,” Jared said.

Julian growled. “Are you always this much of a pain in the ass?”

“Yes,” Jared said with a grin.

Julian couldn’t hold back. He grabbed the male’s head and planted his lips on Jared’s. Julian pressed Jared into the stone wall behind them and slanted his head, deepening the kiss. Jared melted against him and opened to Julian.

Julian grazed the back of his hand against Jared’s robe and felt the impression of a hard cock behind it. The coywolf wanted him as much as he wanted the male.

He broke the kiss, already hungry for more. “Do not lie and tell me you don’t want me,” Julian said. “You want me no less than I want you.”

“There are always ten sides to a decision—”

Julian forced his lips down on Jared’s, stopping the parroted response. He wouldn’t allow Jared’s stubbornness to get in the way of what they both wanted.

When he finally lifted his head, Jared’s stare was lit with lust. “Why do you have to make me burn?”
Julian chuckled, loving the tone of need in Jared’s voice.

Jared pushed from Julian’s arms and walked toward the door to the room they occupied. He stopped at the frame and looked over his shoulder, casting Julian a wanton stare. Heat flooded Julian.
