CROSSFIRE

[Siren Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, shape-shifters, HEA]

Casey is visiting a rival pack with orders to kill the Alpha and take control. Falling for Alex was not part of the plan, but Casey can't deny the attraction between them.

Alex comes with a lot of baggage. Years ago when he lost his mate, he erected an impenetrable wall of stone around his heart. He always believed he'd be alone the rest of his life but something about his visitor intrigues him and he opens his heart to Casey.

As Casey's desire for Alex grows, he knows there's no way he can go through with his mission, and he puts it off. But his Alpha is getting impatient, and finally Greyson shows up threatening to take matters into his own hands. Can Casey save the man he loves?

Story Excerpt

“Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…”

Casey ignored the woman lying beside him and zoned out. Small talk bored him. Anything other than dirty talking their way to great sex was a waste of time. He’d gotten so used to Dana’s endless chatter. If he could adjust the volume, he’d be able to fall asleep to it like white noise. If asked to describe Dana, he’d say bubbly, slightly ditzy, and talkative. At first her flirty playfulness was quirky and cute, but it got old real fast. It was almost as if she had a built-in motion detector. As soon as anyone got near her, she’d start talking. It was usually pointless high-speed drivel, and if Casey tried to speak, she’d interrupt him before he could finish a sentence.

“We took the van to the mall at Lake Placid, blah, blah, blah…”

Casey concentrated on how he planned to upgrade security at the Lodge, and Dana’s voice faded away to a muffled and distant drone like buzzing honeybees. 

“Keene Jewelers, it’s absolutely the largest jewelry store in Upstate New York, and the owner is so friendly. I swear he showed me every engagement ring in the store, and he didn’t rush me at all.”

Engagement. That one word broke through the blockade Casey had set up against Dana’s non-stop chatter. A light sheen of sweat broke out over his skin, shining like a clear coat of varnish in the early-morning sunlight that filtered through the blinds.

“Take your time. That’s what Mr. Keene told me. It’s a symbol of your love that you’ll wear for a lifetime. Those were his exact words. Wait until you see it, Casey. It’s a platinum band with a solitaire style setting. I know it’s old-fashioned, but Mr. Keene says it will show off the diamond without any distractions. And he has the perfect stone, a five-carat emerald cut diamond.”

Fuck! What is it about pack bitches that makes them all so damn anxious to marry and mate? Forcing himself to lie still in the tangle of damp sheets, he pretended to be asleep.

 “You’re awful quiet, baby.” Dana snuggled up to Casey and reached down to stroke his flaccid penis.

His cock twitched in a spiritless attempt to wake up, but the response lacked any ardor or energy. Dana’s shapely body and silky skin begged to be touched, but Casey felt only indifference. All this engagement talk drained him and interfered with his performance.

 “But I wouldn’t care if the ring came off a cigar.” Dana shook him, obviously not about to give up. “You know that, don’t you, baby?”

Casey sighed and opened one eye. “Yeah, yeah, course I do.”


Happy Reading
