My Sexy Saturday: One Sexy Year

This week, all we want you to do is to share a sexy tidbit about anything your heart desires. And you all know what we mean…don’t you?

This week's Sexy Snippet is from "Sacrifice" by Gabriel Belthir in Dominant Tendencies.

His slave faced him, and there was no anger left in him. Matteius suspected it had burned itself out. This was a warrior lost and hopeless, and he shook in his arms as Matteius drew him once again into an embrace.

They stayed there for a long moment until Ta’kari spoke again. “I don’t know what to do,” he managed in a choking voice. “I’ve always fought.”

Matteius pushed some of his hair back from his face. “Now it’s time to stop fighting. It’s time to let go. I won’t let you fall. But you have to trust me.”

Ta’kari wrapped arms around Matteius’ neck and melted a little. “I’m sorry. Please…”

Matteius reached down and pulled Ta’kari’s chin up. He gave in to the impulse he’d had for over a week and kissed him. It was a question more than anything else. Ta’kari’s lips, closed at first, opened to him and relaxed as Matteius possessed him with a kiss. Something inside him latched into place as he could feel his slave’s body language change. Hands that had just panicked to get away from him grasped his hair behind his neck.

He broke the kiss to look at Ta’kari. “Is the boy safe?”

Ta’kari nodded. “He’s gone. He’ll get home.”

Don't forget, The Mad Dogs and Englishmen Summer Spectacular is coming August 1!

My Sexy Saturday: One Sexy Lady

Share with us this week those women aren’t afraid to show that they love someone. Pepper their existence with a clandestine rendezvous or a weekly event, show us why we love, love, love them. Share those scenes with us this week. From the moment our sexy lady meets their significant other, their first hot kiss, to the fulfillment of a dream, show us the wonders of finding, falling in love and loving your significant other.

Our sexy lady this week is Tala Neil from Fated Bonds.

Burb: Tala Neil sets out to be nothing more than an excellent cop, but she can't escape her Mage lineage. When she meets Alexander Kygnios, a Lycan Guardian, her life takes an unexpected turn. Buried secrets are discovered, sparking hope for a life she never thought to have, but she must fight an old enemy and even older laws to protect those she loves.

Seven Sexy Paragraphs: 

He assessed her with warm brown eyes that caused her heart to flutter. Half a week had passed, and she still knew very little about him. Once he could walk without aid, he followed her about the house, watching her clean and do chores which tended to pile up when she worked.

“You are different. Kind.”

Flustered, she focused on folding the towel. “Thanks. Then again, you only think I'm nice because you haven't pissed me off. I've made grown men cry.” She looked up, startled, as Alexander stood right beside her. He moved with such silence that one
minute he was in one spot, she turned and he was gone.

Despite her offer, he rarely touched her, so when he reached out and pulled her to him, she stared at him in shock. He claimed her lips in a kiss that demanded she respond. The towel fell forgotten to the floor. He broke the kiss when she wrapped her arms around him and pressed against his body. He stepped back.

Considering the myriad oddities he displayed, she'd learned not to assume anything. 

“What's wrong, Alexander?”

“You are beautiful…and forbidden.”
