Her Alien Masters (Captives of Pra’kir Book 3) by Renee Rose

HERALIEN_2

Blurb:

SHE SURVIVED THE CRASH…
THEY’LL MAKE HER WISH SHE HADN’T.

Mira thought the crash into an alien planet was bad. Even worse was their police chasing her through a mall and shooting at her. Imprisonment for her and her shipmates’ supposed crimes took the cake. But now they’ve sentenced her to a lifetime “fostering” with two enormous males who punish her, keep her subjugated and force her to call them “master.” And they’ve given her a job–raising their three nieces, whom she inadvertently orphaned when her ship crashed.

Twin brothers Jakk and Gav’n already have their hands full trying to manage their three unruly and grieving nieces. The last thing they need is a rebellious human. Except they find she’s more than worth the trouble. She may be unwilling, but she is beautiful, intelligent and best of all, bound to them for life.

Read USA Today Bestselling Author Renee Rose’s stand-alone contribution to the steaming dark romance sci-fi series Captives of Pra’kir!

Publisher’s Note: This MfM (no action between the males) stand-alone romance is part of a five book series with authors Maren Smith, Dinah McLeod, Megan Michaels and Kate Richards. HEA guaranteed, no cliffhangers!

May the Force be with you! And a dry pair of panties too! This book is hotter than the burning end of a flaming fireball. (I would guess the whole thing is hot, but I’m not an astronomer.) Still, this third  book in the Captives of Pra’kir series first, made me buy the other two books in the series, and second, well, that’s just private.

Renee writes on heck of a spanking and submission romance as well as sci-fi. This book, part of a multi=author series, is smoking up the charts and proof positive that Renee is one of the hottest erotica authors out there. The premise of the story, as in all 5 of them, is that the 5 person ship, manned by all women, has crash landed on Pra’kir and killed some of its citizens. The decision is made by their high council that instead of killing the ladies, they will foster them out to society to rehabilitate them. So, each of these women get sent to some rather seductive caretakers.

Mira gets herself twins, a judge and a police commissioner. Jaxx and Gav’n, who are responsible for taking care of their 3 nieces now that their mother was killed by the ship. They are difficult and have medical issues, so Mira is to be their nanny. But not before she goes through conditioning to be sure she’s a right fit. Of course, her conditioning involves lots of spankings and punishments, but I’ll let you read all of that for yourself.

I loved Jaxx and Gav’n, Jaxx just wants someone to love him, defect and all. Gav’n wants whats best for everyone. It’s another wonderful Renee Rose book.

Megan Simmons followed her entire Army unit into space as volunteers to protect Earth as members of the Coalition Fleet. Eighteen months later, on a Hive controlled planet, she is separated from her unit and trapped. She is certain death will have its day until an Atlan Warlord appears from nowhere and risks his life to save her. Lost and alone behind enemy lines, Megan will do anything to keep her sexy savior alive until one problem arises, and this one she can’t fight her way out of. Despite the danger, her Atlan Warlord’s beast takes one look at her and decides she belongs to him.

Nyko of Atlan never hesitates to charge into battle against Hive scum. When he sees a human soldier in trouble, he follows routine, ripping his enemies to shreds to save a fellow warrior. But when that warrior turns out to be a beautiful and curvy human female, the beast he’s been fighting suddenly breaks free with just one simple demand…MINE.

About Grace Goodwin

Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead.

Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of.

She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.

His Virgin Mate (Interstellar Brides: The Virgins, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

Date of Publication: March 16, 2017

One look, one touch, and there is no denying the heat…

Alexis Lopez just turned twenty-one, her parents are dead, and life isn’t exactly what she’d hoped. Her lackluster response to men is just one problem she’s eager to solve by volunteering for the Interstellar Bride Program. Sharing sensual dreams with her new mate is just the beginning. One look at the large, dominant alien who claims she belongs to him sets her body on fire. When he tells her, in explicit detail, how he’ll claim her in every way, she is eager to give her mate everything, body and soul.

But things aren’t that easy. Von of Everis is a Hunter. After years fighting the Hive wars, he’s home, and one of the top ranking military police in his region. But his bed, and his life, are empty until Alexis arrives. One look at his innocent little bride and he knows she belongs to him, but that claim is challenged by one of the most feared warriors on the planet.

Stolen kisses and mind-numbing pleasure won’t save Von from a deadly duel. Falling in love with his new mate drives a tenderness he didn’t believe he would ever feel. But Von is a Hunter, a warrior, a protector, and someone is trying to take what belongs to him. Someone is using his mate to set a trap…

reviewfbknotty1

Hey Grace Goodwin fans! Grace has come out with a new series in the Interstellar Brides Coalition, and this time, it’s all about the virgins! I’ll be honest, virgin books can be a real hit or miss for me, usually because of the way the heroine behaves for one, and then there’s the hero and how he behaves towards said virginity. But this one was a good one!

In the first book of the series, we have our heroine, Alexis Lopez, or Alex for short. She’s 21 and she’s held on to her virginity because no one has interested her enough to want to give it up to. But when she goes to the testing center, she quickly matches and has erotic dreams about her new mate. She also finds out that the birthmark she has is significant to her mate and his race on Everis as well.

Alex quickly makes friends with two other women who match and have marks as well.When she gets to Everis, before her mate, Von has a chance to claim her, a Major named Cosmo decides that Alex is his. He hates Von, and will do anything to cause trouble.

Will Alex find out what it’s like to have the Everis “Claiming Sequence” fully fulfilled, or will someone take her from Von forever?

This was a truly enjoyable read from Grace, as are all of the Interstellar Bride books. I do admit, I have a bunch to catch-up on in the whole series, but I’m going to have a blast doing it! I just LOVE this series!

This book gets 5 Super Stellar Stars

Surrender to the Cyborgs: (Interstellar Brides: The Colony, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

Surrender to the Cyborgs: (Interstellar Brides: The Colony, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

Date of Publication: February 9, 2017

Blurb

Wrongly imprisoned whistle-blower Rachel Pierce would rather take her chances with her court appeal than accept her place as the first Interstellar Bride destined for the Colony. She’s stubborn and determined to seek justice—and her freedom—on Earth…but her mates are not willing to risk her life or her future on a system they believe to be both primitive and corrupt.

Maxim of Prillon Prime fought ten long years in the Hive wars. Captured and tortured with his second, Ryston, they escaped only to be rejected by their own people and condemned to life on the Colony with the other “contaminated” cyborg warriors. As leader of Sector 3, it’s Maxim’s duty to set an example for his warriors and summon a bride. When she refuses transport, he can’t allow her rejection to demoralize an entire planet of battle hardened but jaded warriors. Maxim and Ryston transport to Earth where they decide she’s theirs and a maximum security human prison will not keep them apart.
Getting Rachel to the Colony is only the first challenge they will face. Convincing their beautiful mate to surrender to not one, but two dominant warriors is another. Even if they can win her love, a new evil is rising on the Colony and someone close to Maxim will be its first victim. Maxim will be its second, unless Rachel’s love and relentless pursuit of the truth proves strong enough to save him.
reviewfbknotty1
There once was a day where I didn’t even think to entertain reading sci fi romance, but now it’s such a huge genre, I gave up the fight and gave in. Besides, with a lot of great writers taking up the mantle, I just had to give in.
I’m glad I did with Grace Goodwin.
While The Interstellar Brides Series isn’t new, this spinoff of it, The Colony is. The Colony is a planet where all of the warriors who were taken by the Hive and “infected” by being given their body parts, are sent to.
Rachel Pierce is a scientist who’s been wrongly convicted of multiple crimes because she was a whistleblower on a cancer drug that was dangerous.While she waits for a retrial that the owners do not want. So she becomes a bride. While on board with her two sexy mates, Rachel discovers something sinister is going on, so she sets about to try figuring it out before lives are lost, including one a little closer to home.
I greatly enjoyed this book, though the mating rituals are a bit off for my tastes with the whole rush to get pregnant. The storyline and the characters, however get a solid 4 Stars for being so enjoyable!

BLURB:

All Marisol Lewis had ever wanted was a family, but her ex-husband back on Earth made sure that would never happen while they were together.

Now? After waking up on an alien planet, she has a plan and she’s more determined than ever to see it through on her own. When the contract comes up that will give her exactly what she’s always dreamed of, she’s eager to sign on the dotted line and begin the journey to her new home planet of Dolovia.

But when things go horribly wrong, she ends up surrounded by mad doctors and Frankenstein space pirates. Luca and Baelion are dragon shifters with a troubled past, shunned by their own people, they now work for the Coalition Council taking rescue jobs that no one else can do.

They manage to find Marisol—but their rescue plans take a wrong turn and they all end up stranded on a dangerous quarantined planet.

Mari finds out the hard way that life often gets in the way of best-laid plans…and dragon shifters most definitely do get in the way of hers.

Good thing for her that dragons are naturally quite stubborn once they decide they want something—and they’ve decided she’s theirs.

reviewfbknotty1

Ok, I’ll admit it, I’m a big time Sarah Marsh fan. So when I saw this book was up for review, I jumped on it faster than fleas on a dog. I actually have the whole series, but I haven’t had the chance to read all of them yet, life, and blogdom has gotten crazy. They are all scheduled now I am very happy to say.

I love this series, it’s a bit sci-fi, some shifter action, and a bunch of menage, mixed with some uber-dominant males. That’s a great recipe for a book in my world. In this book, Marisol makes a decision that leads to her being kidnapped, yet again. Things aren’t looking too good for her, but the Coalition decides to send out two of it’s best search and rescue team members to get her.

Baelion and Luca are not only dragon shifters, but they are mates. (makes all of you mm lovers out there happy.) They have their demons they are contending with, especially Luka. They rescue Mari, but they still have to make it home off of an unforgiving planet. It also gives them time to get to know each other, but someone still has it out for their human.

This was a wonderful book by Sarah, and hopefully we get to see the series continue on for a long time! The book flowed along, the sex scenes were hot with great three-dimensional characters that you wanted to see together. Just loved it!

I give this book 5 Fire Breathing Orgasms

EXCERPT:

Mari stared at the sheer beauty of the male in front of her. His chest was a sculpture of rippling golden muscles. Fine beads of sweat made their way down his toned stomach, drawing her gaze ever lower. She watched as his hips swayed back and forth to the seductive music, his low, loose pants barely clinging to his lean body. She wasn’t sure if she’d even seen a more beautiful man before; it had certainly been long enough since she’d had her hands on any man at all. The sighs of the woman next to her finally broke the trance of his delectable gyrations and allowed her to turn her eyes away. No point in torturing herself any further with things that she couldn’t have.

“God, Mari, how can you even look away from a sight that divine?” Devyn fanned herself with both hands. “I mean, I love Benic like a brother, but when that boy dances, even I can’t keep my thoughts platonic.”

“Well, I’m almost old enough to be his mother, so I shouldn’t be gawking at him at all,” Marisol answered as she stood up from the stone bench where they’d been watching the dance performance. The gardens of the Courtesan Guild building were created for showcasing and practicing all sorts of exotic performance arts, and most of those who attended the classes or worked in the building loved to enjoy the shows.

“You’re leaving right in the middle of his routine?” Devyn asked, looking back at her as if she were crazy.

“I’ve got an appointment with the Guild Matron in twenty minutes. Sally says she’s found the perfect contract for me.”

“Oh,” Devyn answered with a frown. “This soon? I thought it would take longer, that we’d have at least until I’m done with classes before you shipped off to planets unknown.”

Mari reached over and gave her friend a tight hug. For some reason, little Devyn’s perky, outrageous personality had meshed perfectly with her own—surprisingly, since she’d been told on more than one occasion that she was too serious, too much of a control freak. So the tiny tornado of happiness had become her best friend here, and if she was sent off world, she would miss her something fierce.

“Don’t worry, Devyn. It might not even be one that I want,” Mari said with a shrug. “No point in worrying over nothing. I’ll see you after.”

As Marisol walked back through the education center and into the Courtesan admin wing, she had to admire the sensuous beauty of the building. If she had been ten years younger and perhaps a little bit braver, she would have loved to apply to the Courtesan Guild. It sounded so glamorous and fascinating, and Sally certainly couldn’t look any happier than she was in her new role as Guild Matron. Of course, it didn’t hurt that it was a role that just happened to come with a smoking-hot husband, Guild Master Arkenon Quinn. A more devastating alpha male Mari had never met, and she couldn’t help but be a little jealous of her friend.

She walked into Sally’s new office and was not surprised to see the intimidating Kalista Dax standing at the secretary’s desk, going over some paperwork. When the former Tokka assassin turned her unsettling solid blue eyes toward Mari, it was all she could do not to book it back out the damned door. Kali had always been very nice to the rest of the rescued Earthers and actively went out of her way to make friends, but the rumors of the kind of violence she was capable of left Mari just a bit freaked out.

“Hello, Marisol. Are you here for your appointment with the Guild Matron?” Kali asked, an almost smile trying to form on her beautiful, pale white face.

Mari knew that Kali liked to spend so much time with the Earth females because they were so expressive emotionally. She was only half Tokka and had been forced to suppress her physical expressions at an early age. Since Kali had defected from a society where it was unacceptable to show emotions of any kind, she was trying to learn by observing them, and sometimes the results could be…unsettling.

“Yes, Sally said that she may have found a placement for me,” Mari answered, trying to maintain eye contact with the much taller woman.

“Mari, come on in!” Sally bellowed from her desk, which made both Mari and Kali smile at how outrageous their new Guild Matron could be.

Sally was up to her elbows in material swatches when Marisol sat down in front of the large desk. The office was beautiful, with an incredible view of the mountains through the floor-to-ceiling windows on one side. The furniture was all made in a black wood that looked exotic and expensive. But then again, Sally’s new position as Guild Matron was one of the most important on the entire planet of Sirus. It was just strange because Sally really didn’t seem to care about the prestige at all. She had really grown into herself since that day they had all walked out of their rooms for the first time and realized they were now on an alien planet, but she was still just Sally to the rest of her friends.

“Argh, I’m supposed to decide on material for new dresses for the council meetings, and I seriously couldn’t care less. I wonder if I can hire someone to do all of this clothing crap for me?” the Guild Matron said, shoving the material to the other side of the desk with a look of disgust. “So how are you, Mari? How are the classes going?”

“Good, Sal. I’m almost done with the EMT equivalent, so I’m sure that will be handy to have on top of my nursing experience. You said you had a possible match for me for placement?” She squirmed in her chair, trying not to look too excited.

 

Author Bio:

Sarah Marsh was born in British Columbia where she still lives, she has only recently began her writing career finding it the perfect outlet for taking the edge off a nine to five office job. She’s been a science fiction and romance junkie for years and when her imagination started to take the characters she’d read about even further in their adventures she decided to try writing something of her own.

Sarah’s also a former pastry chef and spends a lot of time cooking and baking for friends and family as well as painting and knitting. Her biggest weaknesses are animals of any kind…she even loves the ones that wake you up at four in the morning because they can almost see the bottom of their food dish.

When it comes to life in general she’s a big believer that laughter is the best medicine and that there’s no such thing as too much love, which is why she’s such a sucker for a happy ending.

The Weathermen, 2

On her first day working for Emmett Radcliffe, President of Radcliffe Software and Web Design, Liane Peyton learns that Emmett hired her not only for her design skills, but for her coding abilities. Liane finds herself building a secret database for Emmett and his friends, but saving the planet isn’t Emmett’s only obsession. He has his sights set on Liane, and he will stop at nothing to have her. 

Emmett is part of a group of friends financing the efforts to put a stop to The Madeline Project. The program now has a mind of its own, thanks to a virus called Tommy Twister. These men have power, resources, and money, but they’re as ruthless and possessive as the storms ravaging Earth. 

They call themselves the Weathermen…

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, spanking, rimming, flogging, public exhibition, sex toys, forced seduction

reviewfbknotty1

The Weathermen series moves to book two and the next hot, dominant, rich, business man. Did I say dominant? Just checking. I’m already loving this series, and there are plenty more books to go. As you may or may not know, we are well into the future, 2124. A group of hackers have invented a virus called the Tommy Twister which has invaded the Madeline Project and has forced people to live underground due to the severe weather. (The beginning of every book explains what happened.)

In this book, Liane is hired by Emmett Radcliffe to work on a top secret project because of her coding abilities. But soon she realizes he wants her for a lot more than her talent in coding. Just from the description of Emmett in the pages alone, he sounds absolutely hot! And the books in this series just keep getting better and better. But that’s not a surprise, after all, we are talking about Ravenna Tate here. Her Alpha males and their sassy, confident females always manage to entice this reader and leave me wanting more! Thank goodness there IS more!

This book gets 5 Twisted Orgasms

Excerpt:

She pushed her hips against his erection and moved her tongue over his, imitating his movements. She needed this man inside her right now or she was going to die from desire. Was that possible? It had to be, because she’d never felt such intense longing.

His mouth still on hers, he backed her up against the sideboard and then released the kiss. “Turn around.”

Once again, she obeyed without hesitation. Emmett leaned her over the furniture, next to her laptop. Her bra and panties stared her in the face as he tugged her hair until her head was back, and then he licked her neck. “I’m going to fuck you, Liane. And you’re going to take it.”

She cried out in pleasure as he moved his other hand over her ass, giving each cheek a couple of hard smacks. The dress wasn’t thick, and it stung, but she absolutely adored it. He let go of her hair and pushed the dress up, revealing her ass. “Oh yes. I knew you had a nice one.” His hands caressed her cheeks, moving down the backs of her thighs and up her lower back. “You are exquisite.”

Liane didn’t answer him. She couldn’t. All she could do was close her eyes and absorb the sensations. Never had she been taken like this. This was heady and raw. It sent her emotions spiraling out of control and her arousal to places it had never gone.

He told her to spread her legs a bit, and then he slipped a finger into her ass crack and underneath to her throbbing clit, over and over, until she pushed back against him and writhed against his touch. “Please…” she whispered.

His lips grazed her neck. “Please what?”

“Oh…”

Emmett slid a finger between her moist folds, and Liane cried out again as fresh desire raced through her. “You are soaking wet.”

“I can’t help it. You did that to me.”

“Mmmm … I can’t wait to taste it.”

Her exhale came out in a shudder, and when he pushed his other hand into the opening at the front of the dress and placed it over her left breast, she began to whimper. He rolled her nipple between his thumb and forefinger while she shook her head back and forth, silently begging for release.

“I wonder how these taste.”

“Please.”

“Tell me what you want, Liane. In detail. Or I won’t do anything more than I’m doing right now for the entire night.”

How the hell did he have this kind of control? Was he human?

“I want you to make love to me.”

He chuckled, and shivers ran up and down her spine. Emmett gave her nipple a squeeze, and the tiny jolt of electricity it sent straight to her clit forced a loud moan from her. “You’re going to have to do better than that, gorgeous. Come on. Use your imagination.”

Shit. He was going to torture her with sex. “Okay. I want you to lick that.”

Another squeeze, this one tighter. She cried out again. “That what? Use real names. Come on, Liane. You’re a grown woman with a lush body. Own it. Tell me what you want me to do to every square inch of it.”

“Spank me more. I loved that. And lick my nipples. And suck them. Please.”

“Good girl.” He moved his hand to the other breast, where he proceeded to tease it in the same way. Then he slipped a long finger into her pussy, slowly, while she let out a long moan. “Don’t stop. Tell me more. What else do you want me to do to you?”

“Fuck me. With your tongue, your fingers, and your dick.”

“Good girl. Very good.” He moved his finger in and out gently, and the movement sent shock waves straight to her clit. She was going to come. No doubt about it.

“I can’t think anymore.”

He kissed her neck. “Yes, you can.”

“You mentioned tying me to your bed.”

“Yes, I did.” That voice! It washed over her until no other sound existed. “Tell me about that. What do you picture when you think about it?”

“I’ve always had fantasies.”

He moaned softly as he continued playing with her nipple and her pussy. “Is that true? Tell me about them. Please, Liane.”

The realization this was turning him on just as much sent her excitement level through the roof. “I want you to tie me down and spank me, and then fuck me silly. Fuck me until neither one of us can breathe.”

“Oh my God. You shall have your wish, beautiful lady. But first, if I don’t get inside that hot, wet pussy I’m going to come in my pants.”

Book Blurb:

The moment Sophia met him, she knew life would never be the same. She’s seen him in her dreams for years and knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that somehow, across space and time, they’re fated for one another. But when their lives collide, he can’t get away from her fast enough.

Gunslinger James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok has always lived by how fast he can draw his weapon. He understands things like statistics, odds, and where the sun sits in the sky. But the pull of one woman on his heart gives him more fear than a bullet with his name on it.

They have only one shot at forever. Danger is coming their way, and James is running out of time to make the right call or risk losing Sophia forever.

reviewfbknotty1

Shadowed is the fourth book in April Zyon’s Warriors Of Light series, and my how time does fly! This has been an utterly fantastic series and I will be very sad to see it end. The good news, is that I know April will come up with more incredible stories and series ideas to keep us all entertained.

Sophia Ann Duffy was abused by her own father until she was 14, then went to live in the foster system. She, like the other Vestal Virgins, has her own abilities, and one of hers, is that she’s dreamed all about the man who would be hers.

But, James Hickcock avoids Sophia like the plague for the first couple of weeks. But when he works through his big issue, sparks fly!

Loved the connection between these two. As always, it’s fast, and it’s deep. The length of the book doesn’t give us a whole lot of time to draw things out, but it’s still a great story. I’ll always vote for longer, but the concept just makes up for it all!

Five Otherworldly Orgasms

5knottyo

Excerpt:

Two weeks after returning to the Mountain, James saw her again. Sophia Ann Duffy.

Pausing in the corridor, he watched her walking and talking with her sister. They were such opposites. Vivian was a bold woman, not just with her red hair and take-charge attitude, but she had a presence about her that said she wouldn’t take crap from anyone.

When they’d found Vivian, she’d been on a story that had quickly led them to hunting down Vivian’s sister on the job. The monsters had targeted Sophia because she was one of the thirteen rarest women alive, a vestal virgin, destined to bond with a guardian.

There was something about the dark-haired beauty that called to him. Unfortunately, if he focused on her too long, he ended up with a headache. One the medics were stumped by, since there was absolutely no medical evidence to support it.

The doctors might be clueless, but the other guardians knew something. At least that was his guess, given the looks he’d been getting from Gaius, Hector, Jason, and Mercury. Even Alexander, who pretty much hated James’s guts, was giving him that same knowing stare. They knew something and they weren’t telling him, which was seriously pissing him off.

Sighing, he watched as Sophia disappeared around the corner of a corridor intersection, and his headache let up.

Giving his head a shake, he continued on his way to the base’s main hub. He couldn’t keep thinking about Sophia, no matter how often his mind went to her. She didn’t seem to want to see him, so it really didn’t matter if he wanted to talk to her. She avoided him all too well in a place he knew better than she ever could.

“James, about time,” Mercury said.

Acknowledging their leader, James then nodded to Helen, their tech guru, and took a chair near her. “So, what’s the news?”

“Eric updated me early this morning. He’s found our guy again and is tracking him now. He needs backup out there,” Mercury answered.

“So, you’re shipping me back out to Miami?”

“No, Alexander’s already departed to assist him. Gaius is having fits again, understandable of course, but still, we need to keep an eye on him. He wants to go out there, but we all know how that would end up.”

Yeah, Gaius on a rampage to get the man responsible for Emily, his soul mate, being hurt wouldn’t go well. Godzilla had nothing on Gaius when he got his back up about something and went looking to kill someone.

“So, I’m here why?” James asked. He didn’t get why he’d been summoned, especially since he’d been off training. Mercury didn’t interrupt training for any reason.

“You and I need to talk.” Mercury moved to the door and shot James an expectant look.

Groaning, James rolled his eyes and followed the man. They strode through the halls to Mercury’s office, where James took the chair he was pointed to. “What do we need to talk about?”

“About you getting your head out of your ass and seeing what’s right in front of you.”

“Huh?”

“It’s been two weeks since you got back, and while I agreed at the time with the others to keep my nose out of it, enough is enough.”

“Again, I’m going to have to go with ‘huh’?”

Mercury raised a brow. “You and Sophia. Deal with it, sooner rather than later.”

“There’s nothing to deal with, Merc. She’s a great girl and all, but she wants nothing to do with me. Given how my head practically explodes with pain any time I’m near her, it’s probably a good thing she’s avoiding me like she is.”

Mercury scraped a hand through his hair. “I can’t believe you have no clue,” he muttered. “Do you remember what I told you about the medallion when I brought you back?”

“Yeah, don’t let anyone shatter it, as it’s as effective as having my head removed. Which, in my case, is pretty much the same thing.” James was obviously missing a key point, though, because Mercury was giving him a look that called him an idiot nine ways of Sunday.

“There was more to it than that. It wasn’t that long ago, and even with the brain damage you suffered, you should remember it.”

Frowning, James thought back. The medallion would give him life as long as it wasn’t shattered or he didn’t lose his head. It would help to guide him to stay in the light, but it couldn’t override his own needs and wants. If he gave in to the darkness that surrounded them, then he’d become one of the evil ones.

Then it hit him. The medallion would direct him to the one woman in all the world that was his—his heart, his light, his soul mate. “Shit,” he breathed out. Sophia Duffy was his soul mate. It all made sense now. He could recall the way Jason would rub at his chest as if he were in pain when he met Vivian. Now that he was thinking about it he could feel the ache each time he had seen the disappointment in Sophia’s eyes when he’d first met her.

And he’d pretty much done everything in his power to drive her away because of the headaches. The headaches! He let out a groan and pressed a hand to his eyes. No other guardian had a medallion in their head. He was getting the headaches because the medallion was trying to draw him to her. What had he done? Just thinking of how he’d treated her made his head hurt and his soul scream in pain.

“There we go,” Mercury said. “I knew all you’d need was a nudge.”

“Fucking hell, Merc. Why didn’t someone point it out sooner? She hates my guts right now. I did everything I could to push her away, and I succeeded. She won’t get within thirty feet of me anymore.”

“Well, then, you have a hell of a lot of work to do. I’d watch out for Vivian, though. She’s a very protective older sister, and Jason’s been teaching her hand-to-hand combat tactics. You might beat her on the draw, but I figure she’ll take you down out of sheer determination and whatever women have that makes them stronger than we men could ever hope to be.”

Mercury got to his feet and came around the desk. “Now get out of my office and figure out how to win your woman back. Soon, too, or she might just be handed off to another guardian by whatever power lays within the medallion.”

“Can that happen?” James asked in sudden horror.

“Hell if I know, but it’s a power beyond anything I understand. It might just decide you’re not worthy of her and give her to someone that will actually treasure her for the gift she is. And that may very well mean you’re out of luck, permanently.”

“Shit,” James whispered. Popping up to his feet, he got out of there quickly. No way in hell am I losing my only hope at staying in the light to another guardian. The thought of Sophia being touched by another man made his stomach turn.

Stopping, he looked around. Now he had one major problem and a minor obstacle—getting Sophia to speak to him again so he could apologize and avoiding being gutted by her sister. He’d seen the looks Vivian had been shooting his way, and now he understood them.
