All roads lead home when that’s where you’ve left your heart.

Compass Brothers, Book 1

Silas Compton always had his eye on Lucy, the veterinarian’s daughter. He was even content to wait for the girl of his dreams to grow up before getting anywhere near her with his family’s double-edged legacy.

Waiting around led to fooling around with his best friend—and an impulsive eruption of desire that Lucy’s innocent eyes weren’t meant to see. Figuring Compton Pass wasn’t big enough for either the three of them or the pain he’d caused, Silas let loose his tightly reined wanderlust and headed for Alaska.

Ten years later, when an oil rig accident sends him home, he braces himself for the reopening of old wounds. Instead he finds himself in the care—and welcoming arms—of Lucy and Colby, whose marriage has plenty of room for the man they both still love. And forgive with all their hearts.

As things start to unravel at Compass Ranch, Silas must dig deep for the strength to assume his rightful place in the Compton family…and lay the foundation for a future with his lovers. If he can forgive himself.

Nightkeepers - Book 1 of the Final Prophecy

According to the Mayan doomsday prophecy, time ends on December 21, 2012. In Nightkeepers, the last king of an ancient race of magi must team up with a sexy Miami-Dade narcotics detective in order to reunite his scattered warriors and fight the gods of the Mayan underworld. Wielding ancestral blood magic, the king must choose between his duty to avert the 2012 apocalypse and his love for the woman who is the gods' destined sacrifice. 

---

The first thrilling novel in Jessica Andersen's debut series about the mythical Nightkeepers a race of magic wielding humans that existed well before the start of recorded history, and were almost completly decimated by the demons of the underworld in the previous Great Conjuction. The Mayans believed that the center of the galaxy was the direct portal to the underworld of Xibalba where the Mayan demon gods the Banal-Kax resided. Which opened up when the Great Conjuction aligned the planet directly in the path of the center of the galaxy.

The survivors of the cataclysm banded together and drove the demon lords back behind the metaphysical barrier seperating the three planes of Xibalba, Earth plane and the Skyroad the path leading to the realm of the sky gods. Their duty is to ride out the span of time from the great cataclysm to the next Great Conjuction 21,000 years into the future.

Three times genocide threatened to wipe them out entirely, the Akhaenaton religious cleansing where only a small amount of their people survived. The purging conducted by the Spanish conquistadors of the Incan conquest. And the solstice massacre where their king lead all the adults into a battle that was supposed to ensure the safety of the world but turned out to be a false vision and ended up getting all the adults and most of the children killed. 

The focus of this first book is on their king Striking-Jaguar, or his shortened name Strike and police officer Leah who is caught up in a nasty Xibalan ritual intended to fully reawaken the dormant barrier between the planes in attempt to bring the cataclym date forward a few years. They quickly gather the other Nightkeepers that had been raised in secret and on stories of their people's heritage.

The action of this book comes fast and furious as they try and prevent the summoning of a demon demi-god that would accelerate the plans for the Banal-Kax's re-entry into the Earth plane for another attempt at an assault at the Skyroad and the home of gods. What caught my attention was the fact that this well known Mayan doomsday prophecy was such expertly crafted into such an amazing series of books.

Dawnkeepers - Book 2 of the Final Prophecy

The end-time battle begun in Nightkeepers heats up with Dawnkeepers, a new sensual paranormal thriller from bestselling author and multiple RITA® and RT® Reviewers' Choice Award nominee, Jessica Andersen.

The final four-year countdown to the end of days has begun. According to ancient Maya prophecy, demons from the underworld will arise on December 21, 2012. Only the Nightkeepers, mortal descendants of an ancient race of magic-wielding warrior-priests, can prevent the apocalypse by stopping the demons from bringing the old legends to life.

Unlike his fellow Nightkeepers, Nate Blackhawk isn’t about to let the gods determine his destiny- especially when it comes to his feelings for Alexis Gray, his ex-lover and nemesis. But when they’re forced to work together, racing to recover seven antiquities before the demons get their claws on the vital artifacts, Nate and Alexis will have to face their feelings- and their past- in order to defeat a dire and ancient enemy.

---

The Nightkeepers predecessors were extremely poor people living off the land and sold a great bulk of their artifacts and treasures, due to the fact that Nightkeeper relics were very similar to Mayan ones they were taken for archaeological treasures and were paid vast sums of money for the collections. The money was put into the Nightkeeper Fund so they could train and prepare the warriors which would face down the Banal-Kax at the end time.

Though just now they are realizing that they need these artifacts to call on their summoning powers to aid them in their efforts of fighting the makol demons and their Xibalban mages. Destined mates Nate Blackhawk and Alexis Gray are sent off with the royal mandate to retrieve, steal, barter or buy these artifacts before the Xibalban mages can get their hands on them and summon more powerful demons then the makol to aid them.

This second book is even better then the first as the action shifts into focus very quickly into the book, with the static charge of the sexual tension flowing between them, they hate feeling like their emotions are being dictated by the power flowing through them and fight their intense feelings for each other.

Skykeepers - Book 3 of the Final Prophecy


Ancient prophecy holds that 12/21/2012 will bring a global cataclysm. Mankind’s only hope lies with the Nightkeepers, modern magic-wielding warriors who must find their destined mates and fulfill the legends to defeat the rise of terrible Mayan demons.

In the third of the Novels of the Final Prophecy, Skykeepers, Michael Stone is a man with a dark secret that has skewed his magical abilities dangerously toward the underworld. Seeking redemption, he sets out on a perilous mission to save the daughter of Ambrose Ledbetter, a renowned Mayanist who died before he could reveal the location of a hidden library. The Nightkeepers must find the library before their enemies gain access to its valuable cache of spells and prophecies.

Sasha Ledbetter grew up hearing heroic tales of an ancient group of powerful magi who were destined to save the world from destruction. She never expected that her bedtime stories would come to life in the form of Nightkeeper Michael Stone, or that she’d hold the key to the warrior’s survival. As Sasha and Michael join forces to prevent the imminent battle, sparks of attraction ignite between them, and they’re forced to confront the unexpected passion that brings them together … and also tears them apart.

---

The attraction between Michael and Sasha sizzles just as ferociously as the raw primal magic running through his body. Sasha holds the only key to protecting his mind and spirit from its intense pulse, it is neither good or evil power, but the intensity of it fills the bearer with such energy it can cause madness.

The fight against the makol and Xibalbans heats up as they rush to beat them to finding the entrance of the library. How Michael and Sasha connect and overcome the rampaging forces inside of them is how they will end up surviving the sheer horror of facing down one of the worst possible ajaw-makols, demi-gods pulled straight from the bowels of the underworld.

Whiteout

Sometimes people just meant to meet...


Chapter 1


"All units return to station, there is an incoming blizzard that is set to cut services," said the voice from the radio.

Hunter groaned, he was far from the station, the blizzards around these parts sometimes hit with ferious intensity and little warning. He quickly turned the car around and hoped to make the forty minute trip before the blizzard cut off visibility and he wouldn't be able to see anything in front of him.

Ten minutes later he knew he wasn't going to make it, the wind and the snow had picked up quickly the night was already cold, but the chill fogging the windows showed him just how much colder it had become outside. He hoped to find some place that he could ride out the storm in, his car was not practical.

Even though it was one of the station's few four wheel drive patrol units, this amount of snow would soon make the road too hazardous to continue on. Red lights gleamed out in front of him, he slowed his pace further as the lights gleamed like red halos. It was a car, the wheels were lodged in the already deepening snow as the howling wind dumped large curtains of snow down in front of them.

He slowed to a stop and adjusted his thermal gloves and parka hood and stepped out. He grimaced at the biting slash of cold as he shut the door. He walked through the powdery snow that seemed to just sink under his boots. He reached the car and knocked on the window.

He shouted out, hoping to be heard over the howling wind, "Are you ok in there?"

Helena was pissed, her stupid powers were screwing up again. She really hated being a chaos demon, and she also really hated the cold. Even though it wasn't going to physically hurt her, it still sucked.

She was stuck here for now, she had hoped to get back to her apartment and make the journey back underneath but her stupid powers screwed up and spawned a monster blizzard. The thought of having to walk several hours in the freezing blizzard pissed her off. A loud thudding knock echoed from her window as a muffled voice called out. Lucky for her she had better then mortal hearing and could pick it up.

Maybe now she'd make it home, she tugged her gloves on tighter and pulled the door open and then stepped out and walked around to the other side. Even with her enhanced eyesight, it was difficult to make out the dark form of the man standing there. "No, my stupid car is stuck, blizzard came out of nowhere."

Hunter walked up to the lithe woman that had stepped out of the car and shouted to her, "These blizzards tend to do that around here, lets get you out of here." He motioned her to follow him.

Helena grinned and followed him, the bright beams from the headlights shining off him. She finally got to see who was rescuing her, he was a police officer. A damn fine one too from what she could see.

He opened the passenger door and gestured for her to get into the car, then he walked around to the other side of the car and opened the door and slipped back into his seat. Helena finally got a good look at the man who had rescued her from hours of cold torment. His short tawny brown hair had streaks of dark blonde running through it, ruffled from the hood of his parka that he had pushed back.

He tried to start the car again and cursed as the motor didn't even utter even a sound of distress. Helena thudded back into the chair with a sigh, her magnificently crappy powers strike again. Why couldn't she have gotten cooler powers? But it was just her luck her demon sire was a chaos demon.

Her former rescuer looked at her and said, "Sorry, doesn't look like we're going anywhere. I don't think we could have made much progress anyway." He pointed out the window to the sheer blanketing wall of whiteness. "Have you seen anything close by that we could use for shelter? This storm looks like its going to continue for quite sometimes. We'll end up buried in here if we don't find a better place."

Helena looked around carefully catching the faint glint of light off to the side of the road. "There is a place I know of around here, I don't know what it is exactly but I do know of a few buildings around here."

"Good, we're getting snowed in here, its best we moved now, do you know the direction?" he asked.

"Yes, lets go, its already starting to get chilly in here," said Helena as she secured her gloves again.

Hunter unclipped the radio from the the car and pulled his hood back on before stepping out of the car and shutting the door. The snow was coming down so fast and hard he could barely see Helena's outline. She came towards him slowly and grasped his hand and tugged him down the slight slope on the edge of the road.

They pushed through the snow as the wind battered against them, the howling too loud for them to speak. Bright shimmering halos appeared not far from them, soon they were up to a door. Grasping the handle Helena pushed it open and stepped inside a sudden warm blast of heat surrounded them.

"That blizzard out there is something fierce, you two are lucky that you got here when you did, I was about to lock up the doors, can't see squat out there. The internet just went down here, can't service so you won't be able to pay for the room until the service is restored so don't worry about anything until its time to leave," said the old man behind the counter. He looked at Helena with a subtle wink, he loved being a storm demon. And he had the perfect disguise, he would recognize Helena anywhere.

No doubt she thought she caused the storm he thought with an inward chuckle. She needed a strong man beside her to help her control of powers, her sire never did teach her proper control. He hung out a key to them and said, "Luckily Room 1 is free, its right next door so you shouldn't be getting lost in the snow."

"Thanks, the blizzard is certainly a killer, lucky we got stranded here," said Hunter as he grabbed the key.

He took Helena's hand and walked towards the back exit of the reception room and stepped out in the howling blizzard again. A weakening glow gleamed close by, the wind making it hard to walk as they pushed through it towards the cabin.

Tightly gripping the key Hunter slid the key against the lock until it slid in, he turned the lock until it clicked open. He pushed the door open and stepped in, the room surprisingly warm. He looked around and saw a fire crackling in the fireplace and a large pile of logs sitting against the wall nearby.

Helena shut the door, cutting out the cold and muffling the howl of the wind. "Very cosy in here, what might I call my rescuer?" she asked.

"Sergeant Hunter Barnet, but just Hunter is fine. What might I call you, lovely lady?" he asked with a smile.

"Helena Cervantes, but Helena is just fine," she said. 'Or Hel, like my friends call me,' she thought to herself with a grin.

He finally got his first good look at her as she took off her parka and walked towards the sofa and past him. The shimmering cascade of brown hair with shimmering streaks of auburn red, she had features and a body that would tempt a saint to sin. He snapped out of his daze as his radio crackled.

He picked it up and informed the station of his situation, he grimaced with dismay as a response came through shot with static. "The highway has been closed Sergeant, the weather forecast predicts the blizzard to last through the night. It's estimated you'll be there for two days, hopefully the room is stocked up because everything is going to be snowed out."

Hunter registered his response and then went to find Helena who had made herself comfortable on the sofa with a wine glass filled with a dark red wine. "I poured you a glass of wine too, so I hear, two days. I wonder what we can do with that time," she said with a grin.

For once the disaster that is her powers gave her something good, she had an excuse to not use her teleporting powers, can't around a human. And spending the time to explore this cop's delicious looking body would be an excellent treat. She licked her lips as he shead his coat revealing the hidden shape of his muscles. Getting him a little tipsy would help her planned seduction along a little.

"Yes, my commander just informed me that the highway is blocked and the plows will be unable to make it until sometime in the morning two days from now. He sat down next to her with the glass she had poured letting the warmth settle into his body.

Here I'll only be posting the correct choice, but on the site here at -> Marooned You will get the full experience


Planet Telemachus IV has just been approved for survey on possible colony sites for the Imperalists, primary scans of the planet detect large deposits of raw metals and minerals that would be of great use in their century old conflict with the Colonialists. 12 Imperial Troopers have been dispatched from the command carrier ISS Liberty to retrieve plant and soil samples from the planet and to observe any present wildlife to determine the safety of the planet.
What they don’t know is that the planet has multiple different species of sentient plant life that have certain... hungers...
A race of warrior males crashed on the planet months earlier, they are intensely dominant and have spent most of the time battling the various plants and curious animals while they fix their ship.
Another race is also stranded on the planet, dominating aggressive females, the males of their species are smaller in size and are mostly only good for breeding. When they encounter the soldiers, they’re amazed they’ve never seen such tall and muscular males before.
Once the transport shuttle passes through the natural EM barrier blocking communications with the ship something strikes the shuttle, turning their controlled descent into an uncontrolled burnout, the pods are shot out of the ship in different directions as it breaks apart from the heat and stress of the uncontrolled atmospheric entry.
Major Craig Myers, 36, Brown hair, vibrant green eyes, Captain Bastien Blake, 32, Black hair, dark blue eyes (women)
Lieutenant Maria Marquez, 29, long honey brown hair, dark brown eyes (Vines, men)
Corporal Jared Callahan, 24, Dark Blonde hair, deep green eyes (women)
Sergeant Kane Evans, 25, Light Brown hair, grey eyes, Corporal Ana Ellis, 24, Dark Brown hair, light blue eyes (Onyx, Men)
Captain Aaron Campbell, 31, Black Hair, vibrant blue eyes, Private Lisa Fuller, 22, shoulder length brown hair (Vines, Women)

Lieutenant Elizabeth Ramsey, 26, Long Auburn hair, hazel eyes  Corporal Michael Edwards, 23, blonde hair, brown eyes (Onyx)
Sergeant Greg Donovan, 25, Brown hair, green eyes (Women)
How will the soldiers survive? They’re scattered across a large valley in all directions from their designated landing zone.
Your job is to rescue the soldiers from sexually voracious and intelligent plant life, aggressive warrior males and dominating females.
Scegoia – home planet of the Scegoi Legion, an advance scout ship sent to scan the planet crashed after a major collision disabled their main engines. They have been on the planet for nine lunar cycles (Telemachus IV’s sole moon orbits the planet in roughly 13 days)

Build: Most males are heavily muscled with thick pecs and occasionally set with eight packs but not often.

Sexuality: Most are heterosexual, some are bi-sexual

Appearance: Most males keep their hair short but some have hair brushing their shoulders, they have a bony protrusion running across their forehead which runs around behind their ears which are similar in shape to humans. The protrusion joins up in a ridge set into the spine column of their neck which is incredibly sensitive to light touches. Females of their species use their soft, small tender fingers to arouse and attempt to seduce the man they want. Their skin is an olive, bronze tone and reflects the planet’s sunlight making them seem on occasion to shine.

Weaknesses: While engaged in copulation, if they are enjoying themself their minds close off to much of what is around them, leaving them vulnerable to assault, a sharp kick to the back of their knees will disable them for a short time as the crippling pain from such a blow shuts down their nerves in their legs until they can recover from the shock giving a potential victim to escape.
Ocusylenia – Home planet of the Sylenia Enclave, a research vessel carrying their studies back to their home planet was struck by an asteroid prompting them to attempt a landing on the Class 4 hazard planet Telemachus IV. With their shields disrupted by the asteroid impact a secondary collision with debris in the upper atmosphere tore a hole in the outer hole forcing the crew to set an emergency landing in a dangerous section of the planet.
[Class 1 Bio-Hazard – Occasional hazardous storm systems with pockets of poisonous gasses.]
[Class 2 Bio-Hazard – Frequent damaging storm systems, with occasional dangerous wildlife, pockets of poisonous gasses.]

Appearance: Most Sylena have long hair running down to their tailbones, their eyebrows are set slightly higher up on their forehead, their ears are slightly smaller than humans, their facial appearances are deceptively docile and submissive, but most of the Sylena females are dominants. Sylena males are on average 5’10” and generally less muscular. Only the strongest of the males are given a chance at breeding with their females, their society is a matriarchal one, with the strongest males being picked as the ones to mate with the rulers to ensure the royal bloodlines stay as strong as possible. They have differing skin tones, some have a pale bluish tint, others have a greenish tint and others have a golden tint.

Weaknesses: Their dominant nature on occasion makes them blind to critical weaknesses that are sometimes overlooked as they view themselves dominant enough to overcome any obstacle. Most of their males and some of their females do not approach things with subtlety, any stealthy approaches are likely to take them by surprise giving their opponents the advantage.
Siren’s Breath – An intelligent and sexually voracious vine plant, it lures its victims in with a sweet fragrance it releases through the pores of the skin on its vines.

Siren's Breath

A loud impact and the sound of shrieking metal sounded around them as the emergency lights switched on and the escape pod capsules slammed shut sealing the soldiers inside a protective bubble as more metallic shrieking occurred with flares of orange light edging from all sides. Then the egg like capsules were catapulted away from the burning wreckage of their shuttle as it burned up on its uncontrolled decent into the atmosphere.
Lieutenant Dominic Durham knew one thing, and that was he was on his own as he climbed out of the escape pod. His radio crackled in his ear, it was only short range as the natural EM field enveloping the planet blocked any form of electronic driven communications. He needed to get to the rally point and rejoin with his unit, their mission tenure was for two weeks. They needed to survive on this planet for that long before they would send another shuttle to come and rescue them.
He did a check of his gear to ensure he had everything, he had enough food and water with him to last two weeks on this planet, but he didn’t have any shelter, once they had regrouped they would need to find some place to shelter from this planet’s strong storm cells. The humidity was intense as sweat dripped off his brow.
The initial scans of the planet showed that it was mostly covered in dense rainforest, but in places there were stretches of grasslands that would be perfect for building colonies. They were supposed to have been landing near one of the grassland areas. He pulled out his compass that had been specifically calibrated to adjust for the planet’s EM levels, from the descent angle he was pretty certain that he needed to head north as he looked up at the sky.
It was an unusual colour, slightly between blue and green with pearl white cloud masses moving around. A trail of smoke curled up in the distance, off on a right angle from the rally point. One or more of his unit could be over there, if the escape pods had been damaged during ejection there could be injuries.
He set forward with the soft luminescent green grass bowing under his feet then springing back into shape as he stepped off it. Some of the foliage was so painfully green that Dominic needed to shield his eyes from the glare as the hot piercing sunlight gleamed down upon them. Telemachaus IV’s star was much larger and hotter than their own star, which would account for the great distance from the star and extreme heat and humidity of the planet.
The average temperature of the planet was 28C not allowing for any amount of ice on the planet as large grasslands with sparse forests covered the polar caps. He trudged on through the grass as he reached the edge of the treeline, the trees seemed to sway without any contact from the slight breeze whispering around.
As he stepped into the trees, the humidity increased slightly again as his short hair plastered to his forehead and skull. His uniform clung to his body, drenched with his sweat, somehow he didn’t think the water they brought, especially with half of their supplies being destroyed in the shuttle explosion. That they would have enough to last, once they re-grouped they would need to find a water source and hope they could something edible.
A sweet lingering scent curled through the trees as if it was following him as he pushed through the soft almost silky feeling plants. Some of the leaves felt like they pulsed and trembled with a life of their own as he brushed past them.
He looked down at his compass again as the sweet seductive scent curled around him again, beckoning him. He pushed his compass back into his belt and then grabbed a zip locked packet from his pockets. They were here on a survey mission after all, it wouldn’t hurt to go and investigate the scent. The alluring scent would make a fortune on the perfume market.
With his machete out in front of him he pushed through the dense foliage, it was almost as if the trees were parting for him and letting him through. The fragrant scent got stronger and more seductive the closer he moved in the direction of the scent. Considering he was the one to discover whatever plant it is, he’d make a lot of money from it.
He reached up and wiped his brow, the heat was relentless, he needed to stop and take a rest soon, the heat seemed to get more and more intense the further he walked into the forest. He stepped into an odd looking clearing, an irregular shaped oval in the middle of the dense forest was strange. He needed a break now and recharge from the sapping humidity. He walked into the clearing, the humidity suddenly dropped sharply as he leaned against a rock in the centre.
He groaned, it was so much cooler. He pulled his water bottle out from his belt and took a sip from it, the cold water cooling and soothing his throat as the waves of coolness swept over him. He pushed the bottle back into his belt and leaned against the rock. He needed five minutes of rest before he pressed on. He knew he couldn’t have landed too far from the rally point so it wouldn’t be much longer until he was just waiting for his unit to show up.
He noticed that suddenly the seductive scent had disappeared, a tug at his ankle made him look down. He cursed as he saw a thick green vine moving forwards through the grass like a snake as it snared his ankles. He grunted as they dragged him forward, more vines snaked forward then leapt up and grabbed hold of his wrists.
He struggled against the bonds of the vines unable to move, he struggled against the vines as more snaked towards him. He cursed and mutter, “This is so not good at all, is the damn thing going to eat me?”
This planet was a crazy place, and extremely dangerous, a burst of fragrance hit him in the face then he realized, it was the same scent. The damned vine lured him here, he was so dead. He struggled harder as four more thick vines reached up, they had circular openings at the ends of the vines glistening in the light.
His breathing increased sharply as they reached up and tugged at the collar of his damp shirt then with a sharp tug ripped his shirt open and proceeded to tear the fabric from his heaving chest while the remaining two vines latched on to the front of his pants and with a vicious yank broke his belt and tore open his pants, shredding them from his hips.
Once they had finished shredding his pants they reached up and tore away his boxers, cooler air assaulted him making him groan as the vines held him tightly in their grasp.  Slick coolness soon rolled over him as the vines rubbed up his legs and over his chest then down over his abs. He jerked as one of the vines rubbed against his ass, stroking the cool film against him.
He groaned as it teased his entrance while another vine rubbed up against his quickly stiffening cock. The plant didn’t seem like it intended to eat him, he groaned as the thought passed through him, it intended to fuck him.
He clenched his ass together tightly as it continued to prod and rub him, the vines didn’t seem to like his reaction. He cursed as a vine slipped the cool opening right over the head of his cock, making the tightest hottest fist ever imaginable. As a response his muscles relaxed, the vines took the opportunity and pressed inside of him, wedging inside of his ass spreading the cool film inside of him.
He cried out as it pushed inside of him, heat and cold travelled up his spine as pain and pleasure pricked him. He gasped as more vines reached up and started pulling on his balls covering them with the film while the vine around his cock seemed to convulse tightening then loosening against him in a milking fashion.
His unit would never let him live it down, fucked by a horny plant. He groaned as the vine shoved its way all the way inside of him, a sharp shout and a full body shudder passed over him as it rubbed his nerve bundle. Fire burning all of his body as the vines kneaded and prodded his cock and balls. He almost lost it as he felt something like a tongue rubbing and licking his balls.
Dominic pulled out a burst of energy from inside of him and struggled against their hold harder than he had before, but he was assaulted by the powerful sensations of the vines prodding, licking and sucking him. Slender vines stretching from the thick stalks brushed up his abs, tongues flicked over him licking up his sweat as they slid up his body to his nipples.
He leaned back and moaned as they rubbed and sucked him, he was a goner as soon as the vine embedded in his ass slid out and slid back in and sucked and flicked his prostate, it kept it up as he shuddered and convulsed as the most powerful orgasm he had ever experienced tore through him. He groaned as he felt the vine around his cock greedily swallowing his essence.
Just when he thought it was over, the vine in his ass picked up pace, thrusting then sucking him over and over as the vine engulfing his cock pulsed rhymically faster and faster. He cried out hoarsely as another orgasm ripped from him, he spilled into the greedy vine again as it pulsed on him.
As its grip loosened on him as it seemed content, he panted harshly as his body tremored with the aftershocks he looked to the ground and saw his plasma gun and machete near his feet, he could only make a play for one of them so he had to make it count. He reached down and grasped the machete and took a wild swing at the vines that were loosely restraining his wrists.
An unholy shriek came from the plant as the machete sliced through the vines, thick viscous green fluid pumped out of the severed ends. Before he could hack away at the vines restraining his ankles it sucked his cock hard and thrust roughly into his ass hard and fast burning pleasure blistered over his body as his nipples and balls were sucked and teased.
The pleasure made his body seize his fingers loosened their grip as the blade dropped out of his hand, he groaned and panted as the savage thrusts in his ass and the sucking power made him howl as he was soon ready to burst again. One more sharp thrust and suck inside of him was all what was needed as he erupted emptying into the vine again.
The vines then quickly and harshly slid out of him and slid back through the forest, Dominic shuddered and collapsed to the ground. His whole body was numb, the pleasure had ravaged his senses he couldn’t move.
Sometime later once the sensation had returned to his arms and legs he got up and tied his shredded shirt around his waist and collected his supplies then used his shredded pants to wrap up the severed limbs. They still needed samples.

***


After another two hours of hiking through the thick forest he was glad that he hadn’t lost his boots to those vines. Its scent still lingered around his head, he needed to bathe and get rid of the scent but he had to get to the rally point first. He hoped that he would find some of his unit there.
After checking his compass again he picked up his pace, the humidity didn’t trouble him as much anymore now that he had lost his shirt and pants, soon enough he broke through the trees and came across the clearing they discovered in their scans. He looked around and was disappointed to see that none of his unit had made it here yet. It looked like he was waiting.

Men in Blue, Book 2

A rookie mistake in the line of duty earned Razor months of rehab and a healthy distrust of innocent-looking women. Determined to prove to his fellow men in blue his green has worn off, he goes undercover as Isabella’s dance partner to investigate her possible involvement in a sex-slavery ring. But as he attempts to cozy up for information, their instant chemistry challenges his detached composure.

Firefighter's Charity Auction

Enjoy this first chapter to what I hope will be a three part series.


Evelyn’s Knight
Chapter 1
“Natalie are you sure about this?”
“You worry way too much Evelyn, this will be fun! Don’t forget to bring your cards in-case you want to bid on one of the hunks, not to mention the fact that this is going to be all for charity.”
“Well if anything goes wrong I’m blaming you.”
“Nothing is going to go wrong, in fact I would think that you’re going to be glad you came with me. Now let’s go before I drag you out the door with me,” said Natalie grinning.
“Ok, fine, let’s go,” grumbled Evelyn.
Soon after they arrived at the busy entrance of the club and looked around and read the big sign standing out in the lobby.
Annual Bachelor Firefighter’s Charity Auction
All proceeds will go to the Burns Research and
Treatment facility.
Tonight at 7pm
“Ok we’re here now, you can’t back out like I know you want to,” said Natalie.
“Like I’ve had any choice... let’s just enjoy it then,” said Evelyn.
“That’s the spirit, even if nothing comes of it, we’re going to be spending the next two hours drooling over hunky firefighters.”
“You got that right,” said Evelyn distractedly as she watched a tall muscular man walk past her carrying a large bag.
“Mmm, I like your taste girl, he’s scrumptious. Why don’t you bid on him?”
“How do you even know he’s a firefighter?”
“Look at his boots, it’s pretty obvious to me and that bag he’s carrying would have his uniform in it.”
“If it makes you happy I will, bid on him, then you can stop nagging me,” said Evelyn.
“Yay, we’re going to have a lot of fun tonight girl, just you wait and see. I read up on this earlier, if you win you get taken for a private dinner date with your firefighter at a high class restaurant nearby. And I am certainly planning on snagging one of these hunks tonight for some fun,” said Natalie.
Evelyn grinned, she knew her friend was a wild one, she hardly ever took risks and now it was even more restricted after she dumped her cheating boyfriend. Tonight would certainly be an adventure, that was one thing for certain.
An hour later and after six hot and hard bodied hunks had been auctioned off to the screaming gaggle of women surrounding them, she felt a lot more relaxed. She was determined to break her funk and do this, Natalie had already bid on three of the previous guys, she knew she needed to put a bit of effort in here. She did after all say she was going to bid on one of them.
“Introducing our next bachelor, Christian Cardenas, he’s 26, and been a firefighter for four years. He enjoys surfing and sailing and also on occasion enjoys para-gliding. His favoured date location is a pumping club. Please give him a warm welcome!” called the announcer as the next man stepped forward.
She could just about feel the drool building as he peeled off his tight shirt revealing a rock solid set of abs and firm pecs. She looked over at Natalie and she decided that she would have to bid on the next guy, her eyes were glued to his solid chest and the bulge pressing against his exposed boxers. She licked her lips as Christian moved to the back of the stage as the announcer stepped forward.
Soon she was looking at her friend mouth agape at what she was hearing, “$500!” she called. There was no way she’d be able to afford that much, it looked like it would have to just be a bid to please her. Then she couldn’t nag once it was over with.
“One final call for $700,” called the announcer.
“$720!” called Natalie.
Once the announcer declared it done Evelyn with a pointed look directed at her friend said, “Girl are you crazy? You spent that much?”
“It felt like he was watching me the whole time, I just had to win this time,” she said,
“Ok then, I obviously won’t be able to afford a date with one of them then.”
“Let’s just see, if you like any of the remaining guys enough,” she said.
Christian walked over light glimmering over his chest as he jumped off the stage and jogged over to them. “What’s your name gorgeous?” he asked as he grinned at Natalie.
“Nat...Natalie,” she stammered.
“I’ll come and collect you at 9pm for our date, don’t go anywhere,” he said and walked away, she was glad she didn’t bid on him. He seemed a bit too cocky for her tastes, but he was perfect for Natalie.
“What a killer body, and oh god that grin of his, I think I might be in love,” said Natalie.
Evelyn grinned and said, “No, that’s lust, looks like you’re going to get what you want out of this night.”
“Oh I certainly hope so, I don’t know how I’m going to survive a dinner with him, without wanting to rip off his clothes and do him there on the table.”
“You naughty woman, but at least he seems to be as wild as you,” said Evelyn.
The announcer’s voice cut their conversation, “Introducing our next bachelor, Nick Donovan, he’s 27 and has been a firefighter for three years, he enjoys horse riding and hiking through bushland and exploring caves, his favoured date location is a nice quiet restaurant. Please give him a warm welcome.”
Nick stepped out onto the stage and her eyes nearly rolled out of their sockets, it was him, the sexy hot man she spotted in the lobby. But now he was dressed in his turnout gear that he was slowly stripping off. His piercing gaze roved the room, just the way he commanded the stage promoted hot flushes to bloom all over her.
Her breathing picked up as sweat dripped down her forehead and splashed on her chest, as with a masculine display of strength. He tore the wifebeater off his chest displaying his powerful, perfectly defined abs and flat hard pecs. Drool almost escaped her as he pulled a bottle out of his pants and uncapped it, he splashed water all over his broad chest the stage lights glimmering off the water on him, her jaw gaped open as he slid the zipper on his pants down, the sizeable bulge encased in his tight black boxers was revealed.
She think she might have groaned, she wasn’t sure when he pushed his pants down to pool around his ankles. Her eyes were locked onto his glimmering chest and the thick bulge in his boxers. His powerful muscles flexed as he showed off his tight hard physique. Then he was looking directly at her, her breath caught in her throat as his eyes bored into her with hot searing intensity. She knew what she had to do, she had to win. He was going to be all hers tonight.
A broad grin stretched over his face as he broke contact with her, a whole body tremor washed over her. That man was hers, he walked to the back of the stage after pulling his pants back up and refastening them, “Can we start the bidding at $200?” called the announcer.
A flurry of fast and hard bidding passed over her as the totals quickly reached $600, “Do I hear $700?” asked the announcer, the woman that had been furiously battling the others shot her hand up. She needed to dig deep and win here.
“$900!” she screamed, Nock turned and looked at her with an eyebrow raised he was just as surprised as she was. She certainly hadn’t intended to spend quite so much, well it was noodles and rice for the next two weeks while she paid back what she owed. The woman that had been battling the others glared at her with such malice she thought the woman was going to combust. It was a silly thought, but Nick was certainly worth it.
“Do I hear anymore bids?” called the announcer. “Going, once, twice, three times, Sold!”
“Oh My God! I can’t believe you just did that Evelyn! Way to break your shell in a big way! Have fun with him,” said Natalie. As Nick approached her like a panther on the prowl.
“I’ll pick you up here at 9pm for our date, I look forward to it,” he said, he grinned at her broadly showing her a big white smile with dimples creasing his cheeks. Then he turned and walked away, her eyes locked on the powerful flex of the muscles of his back.
“Damn, that guy makes Christian look like a scrawny kid in comparison, looks like you won big girl,” said Natalie.
“It’s his confidence and commanding presence that makes him so much sexier, I think I might have the same problem. I’ll probably be hard pressed to keep my jaw shut. It must be our lucky night, we’ve scored the hunkiest of the hunks,” said Evelyn.
“Damn straight, damn still forty minutes to go!” sighed Natalie.
“And you’re the one that wanted to come and watch the hunks,” chuckled Evelyn.
“I know but I’m so hot right now I feel like I could burst,” she said over the announcer’s voice.
“Just enjoy the view and we’ll be done soon enough, I’m anxious too, I just hope Nick is worth the $900 I forked out.”
“Eve, the man has a perfect body, his voice gives you goosebumps as I can see your arm... he likes horse riding, of course he’s going to be worth it.”
“I suppose, and don’t doubt Christian I saw the way he was looking at you, I can predict that after dinner you’ll end up getting hot and sweaty with him in a club then you’ll end up in bed,” said Evelyn smirking deviously.
“Thanks, now that I have my hunk it doesn’t seem like these guys are even that hot,” said Natalie.
“That’s because they’ve probably already gone through the hottest guys, this guy loves himself.”
Natalie snorted and said, “I can see, it’s such a turn off.”
The last half an hour passed as they giggled over the remaining bachelors taking their turn on stage.
“God, that last guy was so cocky,” said Natalie.
“He’s bitten off more than he can chew there, the winner is going to eat him for dinner. She’s a dom, she’ll have him handcuffed to her bed if he doesn’t watch out.
“How do you know that?” asked Natalie.
“I’m a massage therapist, I know people so, I can tell a few things about people, for example I know Christian is just right for you. You’re gonna have a lot of fun and here he comes like sex on legs,” she said.
Christian approached with a broad grin, his short brown hair combed back and gelled with a dark blue silk dress shirt and a tight form fitting pair of dark coloured jeans. “Ready to go?” he asked extending his hand to Natalie.
“Go have some fun girl, I’ll talk to you tomorrow when we go out for lunch,” she said.
They quickly left making haste for the exit, she looked around watching the firefighters all dressed up escorting their dates away from their tables. She just about fainted as she spotted Nick approaching her, his short dark brown hair had been straightened and stiffened with gel. A big white smile on his face making his dimples crease.
A grey suit jacket accompanied his steel grey and black dress shirt with tight almost painted on black jeans, he really was swoon worthy. As he approached her, he reached into his jacket and extracted something, her eyes widened as the fattest looking rose she had ever seen made an appearance. The multi-layered petals and the beautiful fragrant scent reached her. She loved the strong scent of roses, they were so expensive.
“A beautiful rose, for a beautiful lady,” he said as he reached her. He had no idea why it felt necessary to romance her, but it felt right somehow.
“Nick you didn’t have to do that, it’s lovely, thanks,” she said.
“We’re going to an Italian restaurant, I hope you like pasta,” said Nick.
“My favourite food, especially creamy pasta,” she said grinning.
“Perfect, it’s my favourite restaurant too,” he said.
She walked behind him as he lead her outside, she licked her lips as she watched the flex of his ass and thighs while he walked towards the exit.
“It’s not far from here, I know the owner, so we can get seated quickly,” said Nick as they reached his car. A sudden hot thought of her shoving him against the door and yanking his pants and shorts down and then devouring his cock sent hot flushes all over her body.
He unlocked her door and opened it for her, he was a real gentleman too, it was way more then she had ever gotten with her pig of an ex. She sat down on the seat and clipped her belt into place.
Nick took the time she used to situate herself in the seat to take a deep calming breath, he needed to control himself before sitting down, good thing he had his jacket or he’d be feeling more embarrassed then he already was. With just a look she had him hard as a pole.
He opened his door and slid into his seat careful to drape the edges of his jacket over the bulge in his pants and shut the door. “What’s your name?” he asked.
“Evelyn, let’s have a nice time,” she said as he pulled out of the parking lot.
They drove towards the restaurant in tense silence, the heat simmered between them, normally she would have been talking about everything and anything with the hunk next to her. But the heated tension between them stayed her tongue, she didn’t want to do anything to risk her chances with the man.
With the stiffness of his shoulders and the way his hands clenched the steering wheel she knew he was feeling exactly the same, she grinned. She looked down at the jacket covering the bulge in his tight pants and had a naughty thought of reaching over him and unzipping him and pulling his thick cock out to stroke and tease.
A hot flush passed over her at the naughty thought, the car rolled to a stop as Nick pulled the car into a parking space out the front of the restaurant. He quickly got out of the car and walked around to her side and opened the door for her, she grinned at him and said, “It’s nice to see chivalry isn’t dead.”
He grinned at her and took her hand escorting her to the entrance of the restaurant, “Hey Nick! Regular table?” greeted the usher.
“Not tonight Paul, I got a beautiful woman with me,” he said with a grin.
“Come right this way, I have the perfect seats for you,” said the usher. He directed them through the relatively busy restaurant, until they came across a section of the restaurant with a few tables, only one of them being occupied with a couple.
“We just set up this area a few nights ago, it’s our private couples dining area, the menus are on the table, a waiter will be with you shortly to get your orders. Have a pleasant evening,” said Paul as he left the room.
Nick pulled out the chair from the table and gestured that she sit, he was certainly a real gentleman. A keeper that was for sure, she chastised herself then for having such a thought. Such a refined man wouldn’t be looking at somebody like her as a long-term partner especially not after she paid practically a fortune just to be here on this dinner with him.
As Nick took his seat she said, “He was exceptionally friendly with you.”
“Yeah, it pays to be friendly to the boss’s son, my father owns this restaurant,” said Nick.
“So this is you ‘knowing’ the owner,” said Evelyn. He certainly wouldn’t want her permanently, not with his charming personality and his good looks. His parents probably expected him to marry somebody a lot more high class then her.
He grinned and said, “Yeah, my father was a waiter here when he first started he worked his way up to manager then he bought the place when the old owner retired, the food here is the best.”
The thick sexual tension that had been vibrating through them had lessened slightly, but every time he flashed that gorgeous smile at her a hot flush passed through her. She was a sexy confidant woman, she would do this without embarrassing herself. She would compose herself and act normal as she possibly could.
She picked up her menu and looked through it, the pricy figures next to all of the dishes made her want to collapse into a heap. She was already so far in it, why not indulge in it. “So what do you do for a living?”
“I’m a massage therapist, sometimes a psych therapist too, some clients bring in all their baggage as well. There’s nothing for them to do really but to talk, sometimes it gets frustrating though.”
“How is that?”
“Like do I really need to know that your boyfriend dumped you? Or that your neighbour irritates you? I’m a masseuse not a quack, I have no idea what gives people the impression that I can help them with those sorts of issues,” she said then clamped her mouth shut. He was probably thinking she was a chatterbox now with her rambling on the way she was doing.
She almost sighed again as he flashed his killer grin with his gorgeous dimples and said, “Sounds pretty challenging at times, its similar to some of my job situations. You have to deal with sometimes hysterical people. Some of the time, the victims themselves are more dangerous than the fire you’re rescuing them from.”
Before she could answer the waiter stepped up to them and said, “Are you both ready to order?”
“Yes, I’d like the chicken pasta,” said Evelyn.
“I’ll have my usual.”
“Ok, Creamy pasta with chicken strips and pasta with meatballs, they should be ready in 15 to 20 minutes,” said the waiter as he stepped back away from the table.
“You’ll love it, I’ve tried it a few times. But I like the meatballs best,”
“How often do you come here?” she asked.
“Every week, I also do it to visit my father, he needs a bit of company every now and then. My mother passed away a few years ago, she developed a brain tumour, doctors said that it was in-operable.” If he could have he would have kicked himself, he had only ever shared his private pain with his fire unit and only after a few months of them prodding him with questions.
“That’s sad, though I’m glad you have such a close relationship with your father.”
“Thanks, so what made you go into massage therapy?”
“I like helping people, most of my clients seem to be construction workers or emergency personnel, but there’s also the patients that have chronic pain issues. It’s the sense of helping people feel better from daily tension and stress. What made you decide to become a firefighter?”
“One thing is that you get this wicked adrenaline rush when you’re heading into intense situations, rescuing people that would have been killed without your assistance generates this peaceful feeling that settles inside of you. Knowing that you’ve saved some people’s lives, life is precious it can’t be regained if it’s lost unlike most possessions.”
She smiled at him as she listened to his passionate declarations about the job he clearly loved doing. “It’s also just about being there, supporting the victims. Especially if they’re in a vehicle smash and you can’t get them out until a way is cut into them, just holding their hand giving them that life line is a special feeling.”
If she didn’t watch out she could see herself falling in love with this man, which would be highly impractical. He lived for the thrill and excitement of his job, her relatively tame and mundane existence couldn’t possibly hope to hold his interest. She would have to make every single bit of their time together last.
They made some small talk and discussed their hobbies until the waiter came back with their dinner plates and silently devoured their meals. After she had finished, Evelyn dropped the fork on the plate with a clatter and leaned back into her chair. “That was certainly the best pasta I’ve ever had before.”
Nick grinned and looked at her, his eyes searing her. “I’ll have to tell Dad that, that was his recipe.”
She stifled a groan, again she pictured ripping off his clothes and riding him on the table. Nick picked up the napkin and wiped the sauce from his lips and dropped it back on the table. “Do you want to leave?” he asked with a slight hint of huskiness in his voice.
She was going to have this man tonight, she didn’t care she was for once taking the risk. She hoped she didn’t end up regretting it. “Sure, where do you want to go?” This was it, it was up to him now.
Heat crawled over his body at her words, she was leaving the decision up to him, butterflies fluttered in his stomach he had to take her offering or he’d be kicking himself in the morning. “I was thinking your place, we could have a drink.”
“Sounds nice, lead the way,” she said.
“Did you drive here tonight?” he asked.
“No, my friend did, so you have nothing to worry about on that count.”
As they passed the front counter Nick leaned over it and said, “Paul, add the dinner to my tab, I’ll pay next time I come to visit Dad.”
“Sure thing Nick, have a nice night,” he said.
He took her hand in his and led her outside to the car and opened her door for her, I wonder where he picked up all his charming manners from, she thought as she slipped inside the car and buckled up.
Once Nick sat down in his seat, the sexual tension between them snapped and bubbled, almost reaching boiling point. She resisted the urge to reach over and kiss him, if she did that now she knew what would happen.
Nick stifled a groan as the fiery hot look from Evelyn as she looked over him set him hard as a post again. He pushed his jacket over the thick bulge and started the car. They drove towards her apartment in tense silence. Only broken by her directions, he was crawling out of his skin, he didn’t know what he’d do if she rejected him now. She was a classy lady, someone who he didn’t think he’d meet tonight.
Soon they were pulling into the apartment garage, the sexual heat simmering around them, beginning to reach boiling point. He opened the door and stepped out walking around to her side and opening the door for her. He took her hand and shoved the door shut, tension strained his body as he resisted the urge to throw her against the car hood and ravish her.
She would have laughed at his tense poise if she wasn’t feeling exactly the same thing, somehow she doubted that, they would even get to her bedroom before they were all over each other. She opened the door and let Nick lead her inside. “Which room?”
“107,” she had always thought her apartment number was a sign of good luck. And in many ways to had been, once they reached the door she unlocked it and pushed it open.
