Excerpt: Mace #Scifi #Manlove



In a secret military complex, a scientist uses genetic engineering to spawn a new breed of humans who can shape-shift into animals. One-nineteen, a bat hybrid, longs for his freedom, but when he finally gets a chance to try his wings, he's afraid of getting caught and hides in an underground cave.

Brad Walsh is an experienced caver, but an accident leaves him trapped underground. Rescue comes in the form of a shy stranger, who calls himself Mace. Brad invites Mace into his home—and his bed. But he has no idea that his virgin lover is a shape-shifter who's on the government's most wanted list. 

For the first time in his life, Mace knows what it feels like to have someone care about him, but staying with Brad is out of the question. 


Never in a million years could Brad have predicted what happened that night. He rarely went to bars. Too much noise, too many people… …Besides, he sucked at striking up conversations.

“Don’t be antisocial,” the guys had told him. “Just relax.” Someone bought him a gin and tonic. One drink turned into two, then three, then four……. Brad could barely keep his ass on the bar stool. When he spilled his drink, the curly-haired bartender came right over to mop it up. Their eyes locked and Brad did a double take. 

Am I seeing things, or did the bartender really wink at me?

“I’m Lewis,” curly -hair said. 

Brad felt his face heat as he stammered out his own name.

“You look a little green around the gills, Brad, but I have just the thing for you.” Lewis adjusted his jeans, and there was no mistaking the wink this time.


“Leave it to me. You won’t be sorry.” Lewis turned away, and a very flustered Brad couldn’t help admiring the man’s fine ass. Heat curled low in his belly. It had been a long time since he’d been with anyone—or drank so much liquor. Maybe I’m reading too much into this. God, he hoped not. 

By the time the bartender came back with his drink, Brad felt like he had a fever. He stared at the tall glass of amber-colored liquid and sniffed at it. “I don’t know… …What is it?”

“Hair of the dog. Fernet, lemon, and ginger beer. Guaranteed to get you on the road to recovery.” Lewis’s sexy lips turned up in a devastating grin. And if it doesn’t, I’ll take you home myself.”
