Fern’s fate was never his to decide, and now Wereduin Society challenges him in the most brutal way possible.

 

Blurb

The Offering is nearing the end, and Fern will become a mated beta. So far, he’s been unsuccessful at escaping his alpha, Donovan Blackfang. But in their world, where it’s dog eats dog, Don might be the key to Fern’s survival. 

Read the conclusion of the Offering in the riveting second book of the Wolves of Wereduin series.

 

Excerpt 

Hands grabbed my ankle, and I collapsed to the ground, barely time to catch myself on my forearms. How the hell had I missed that alpha lying near a quilt waiting for two challengers to end their fight? Upon seeing me, he must have decided that I was more desirable and snatched me instead. He made quick work of trying to get at my first claim mark. I growled at him before I went limp. Papa had taught me a trick that just might work with this alpha. He didn’t look too smart. He leered down at me like a hungry predator about to eat a willing meal. He leaned over me, whispering. 

“You submit so beautifully. You’re such a beautiful beta.” The moment he was near, I shoved my fingers into his eyes. He yelped back, clutching his face. Quickly I rolled out from under him and darted to my feet, running with all I had. 

Another alpha spotted me and came at me from the side. The previous alpha—now raving mad at what I had done to him—gained on me from behind. My quilt was located at the top of a cliff to the east. But I was getting closer. 

I wanted to yell for help from Don. I mouthed the words, but my voice didn’t work. 

Yet another alpha charged me. I saw a beta who had been pinned by him. Looking relieved, she dashed to her feet and made it back to her quilt. Her alpha gave her stone-cold eyes and turned away from her. While the alpha hadn’t thrown her beta out, it looked like she might. The beta got to her knees. Going over, she fell at her alpha’s feet, kissing them, rolling onto her belly. It nagged me that I might have to do that for Don as well. Either way, I had no time to watch the other beta and her alpha or think about the consequences that awaited me at my quilt. 

A fourth alpha blocked my path. Shit. I was winded and tired. He jumped, tackling me to the ground. As he took me down, the other alpha jumped on him from behind. The one attacking from the side jumped in as well. I was smashed underneath them as they bit and clawed, trying to kill each other and get to me. I could barely breathe. I saw my quilt through an opening between their bodies. 

Don was sniffing the other betas approvingly. 

No! I wasn’t going to lose to any of them, and I certainly wasn’t going to let any of these assholes claim me. I decided to use their fighting to my benefit. Crawling through the moving tangle of bodies, arms, and legs, I squeezed my way out of the mass. I was a lot smaller than any of them, so I was able to fit. Had I been taller, it would have been impossible.

One of them realized what I was doing and grabbed my ankle, sinking his claws into my skin. Yelping, I kicked as hard as I could and freed myself. I got to my feet the quickest I ever had and raced up the side of the cliff. I saw my quilt only several meters away. I could make it.

Don glanced up from the beta he sniffed. The damned thing had the gall to roll around on my quilt. If the beta won their challenge and the alpha accepted them, the quilt now belonged to the new beta. Jealousy and something else flared up inside me. Rage. I wanted that beta gone—wanted all those betas off my quilt, but particularly that one, probably because of all of them, she had the most of Don’s attention.

I met Don’s gaze as one of the alphas chasing me grabbed my ankle, and I fell into the dirt. It hurt a lot, but I wasn’t about to stop. Head-banging him—and thanking every mosh pit I had ever been in—I crawled away from the alpha. On hands and knees, I made it to my quilt. A second alpha grabbed me the moment my fingers snagged the fabric. I didn’t let go.

“Get off! Don!” Would he leave me to be claimed by one of these savages? He had the right to. I had left him of my own free will. He was under no obligation to help me. But…he’d said he loved me? 

The alpha punched my side, and I gasped, letting go of the quilt. I knew what he planned to do by instinct. Without thinking, I covered the back of my neck over the final claiming spot. Fangs tore into my fingers and the back of my hand, tearing flesh and muscles, and sinking into my bones. One of his fangs succeeded in going between my thumb and index finger, piercing my skin.

Agony tore through my body worse than any pain I had ever experienced. It hurt straight down to my soul. Was this the bond I had with Don being broken? I had heard it was the most painful thing a beta could experience, being claimed after they already had an alpha, even one who was still in the process of claiming them. Don and I had gotten further than I ever realized. I screamed as much as my trapped body allowed. Blood covered my hand. He bit, again and again, trying to pull my hand away.

“Don, please! I’m sorry, I’m sorry! Please! I’m begging you!” Words spilled from my mouth. I had no power over them. My insides, my head, my heart, every pore on my body burned. I needed my alpha. This new challenger was succeeding in removing my death grip. Was this it? Did I finally push Don too far? Would I end up with a much worse fate? This terrible werewolf most likely lived on the streets. Maybe he would even turn me into a sex slave to earn some money. “Don…please…”

A beta in an oppressive werewolf society must participate in a mating ceremony where alphas hunt their future mates.

 

Blurb 

As a beta in Wereduin society, Fern has no choice but to be mated when he comes of age. The ideal beta wereduin was subservient to their alpha, bears young, and knows their place in society.

Fern isn’t like that.

Rather than become an extension of his alpha, Fern wants to play in his band, hang out with his friends, and stay himself.

Now of age, Fern is to be placed in the Offering—an annual ceremony where alphas hunt and claim their beta mates. And whose attention does Fern attract? None other than Donovan Blackfang, a Highborne alpha who will stop at nothing but to claim Fern’s heart, body, and soul.

 

Excerpt

Someone grabbed the nape of my neck. Shit, no! Why hadn’t I paid more attention to my surroundings?

This alpha male was stout and gray. His jagged claws dug into my shoulder, and it ripped a cry from my throat. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw another beta. This alpha must have been cornering her before I showed up. She didn’t look back at me as she made her escape. The alpha who had me could have come from my worst nightmares. He had a large scar across his eye. His thick, weather-worn hide told me he’d been at this game for a while. He could be my papa’s age, not that age mattered for werewolves, but his face was truly menacing. The glee I found in his glowing red eyes terrified me. Veins riddled his muscular physique. One of his ears had been chewed off. He gripped my shoulder, tearing my skin. I clawed at his hands, face, biting wherever I could as he forced me onto the ground.

I felt sure I was a goner when he was knocked off of me. Growling surrounded us. It was the large, black alpha that had taken on the slaver. He snarled at the alpha who had been about to rape me. Slowly, I crawled away on my hands and knees. That was when he turned his fangs on me, growling. He didn’t want me to leave, as if he already felt some ownership of me. Something in his eyes halted me and trapped my breath in my throat. I shook my head rapidly.

No!

There was no way I would be claimed tonight. And certainly not by a male. I took off running, leaving them to their fight.

It was over shockingly quick. The dark alpha won. My alpha. It confused me when I momentarily thought of him as mine. My body wanted to submit. Arousal grew heavy in my groin, heating up my body.

Hell, no!

Instincts be damned, I was not born so I could have some male alpha’s pups.

The black alpha picked up speed.

Just then, two alpha males sprang from either side of the woods. I ducked low, and they collided into each other. I dodged around them. The left one snatched me back before the alpha on the right knocked him to the ground.

Both alphas were beautiful—if I allowed myself to think something like that about the same sex. One was a scarlet red, while the other a golden bronze. Hopefully, the two would also stop the black alpha who still followed me, and I could make a getaway.

Both tried, not wanting to let a challenger slip by.

I dragged out a relieved sigh. Part of me was disappointed, and that part scared me. The rest of me was thankful. I didn’t want any of them to win—especially the strong dark alpha.

It was apparent by their beauty that all three alphas fighting over me were from the upper-class. But my eye was drawn to the dark one—jet black with those piercing neon-blue eyes and riddled, muscular physique. Of the three, he was the most handsome. Shaking my head and trying to remove those unwanted thoughts about the beautiful alphas fighting for me, I left them to battle.

 When I heard them following me, I stole a glance over my shoulder. My heart stopped. Both the scarlet and golden-bronze alphas chased behind me. The dark werewolf must have been beaten. My heart sank. I wanted to slap myself. Why did I feel so let down?

I ran blindly through the forest and over the rocks until I backed myself against a cliff. Both werewolves approached me, snarling. I retreated as far as I could go before I drew my fangs. There was no way I was going down without a fight.

Perhaps they formed an alliance because they no longer fought each other. Instead, they homed in on me.  Was I about to be claimed by two males?

How would they take me? I only had one opening. Would they both try to fit? My body trembled, but my beta brain started to submit. It craved having the alphas’ cocks inside me.

Backing away, I shook my head and crouched low. They sprang at me, but before they could touch me, a black shadow leaped from the cliff over my head. He landed in front of me.

There he is again!

The black alpha.

Gratitude overwhelmed me, and I could do nothing but stare at him. I wanted this alpha. I ached inside. Precum dripped from my hard cock. I wanted him inside of me.

Violently, I shook my head. No. I did not want to be claimed by anyone tonight. I found a small opening created by their fighting and snuck out. The black alpha growled at me, and I couldn’t stop my shiver. He wanted me to wait for him. He wanted me to let him claim me. Already, it felt like he had his claws around my heart.

When the lines blur

Blurb

Surprise, it’s a boy!

I never wanted to know him.

Never even suspected his existence. But once I knew, I had to see him. Had to see if it was true.

He has your eyes, your hair, your dimples.

Timothee is everything I used to be, full of life, full of joy. He’s also a sassy little sh*t.

He has me wrapped around his fingers, so damn easily.

My son? He’s trouble.

What we share is all kinds of wrong, even if it feels oh so right.

***LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON is a forbidden love romance, full of snark and k*nk. Please heed warning at the beginning of the book.

 

Excerpt 

When he bent over the pool table, cue perched between his fingers, I positioned myself right next to Tim, my cue resting between my feet, tip pointing up. “You gotta go a little to the left,” I said and nudged him there. Tim shifted willingly, chest to the table, arms outstretched. “Aim for the ball in the middle, then touch it softly,” I added while I tried to keep my eyes from making a detour down his back to where his pants stretched tightly over his ass.

He made his move, which made the ball jump in the right direction but missed its aim completely. “You didn’t do it softly like I said.” Tim straightened up and smirked impishly.

“Next time I tell you to go softly, will you?” he asked.

I scoffed and, in a few, quick strides, rounded the table. Tim kept his smirk in place, gliding his hand up and down the cue so slowly it looked like he was stroking something else. God, this kid…

I bent over, hit the ball exactly how I’d showed him, and watched it pluck into the far right pocket. “That’s how it’s done,” I told him. Tim mimicked me childishly, waiting for me to continue. Someone approached him.

“Ohh, Dev, who’s this pretty little thing? Are you picking up whores from schools now?” Jason. I clenched my jaw as Tim whipped around and faced the man. Heavily tattooed, even more than me, blond hair pulled into a bun, and just as tall as Tim.

“Mind your fucking business,” I snapped while Jason studied my son’s face intently. Tim didn’t move. He just stood there staring at the man as Jason drew a thumb over his jaw. “Don’t touch him,” I snarled.

“Or what?” Jason lilted, his tone dripping with innocence. His father was Steven, the man who’d bailed me out of prison nearly two decades ago. Jason was younger than me, in his late twenties, and he had that bad boy charm that always had us on edge around each other. I hated him; he hated me. For various reasons. But for one in particular: his I-am-everything-and-you-are-nothing attitude.

“Or I’ll make you regret it,” I threatened, placing the cue on the table and stepping closer to them. Tim slowly emerged out of his trance, his eyes hooded when Jason flicked his thumb across his chin. Two men stood behind him, sipping beers, guns attached to their belts. The usual.

Jason dropped his hand, the chains around his wrist jingling, and hooked one finger in a belt loop of Tim’s jeans. “How much did you pay for him?”

I drew forward, grabbed Tim by his arm, and yanked him in my direction. “Don’t touch what isn’t yours,” I growled from between my teeth, fingers clenching around Tim’s biceps.

“Oh, so I was right?” Jason asked cheerfully. His lips curled into a smirk. The scar—from a fight I’d witnessed years ago—running from his right eye over his cheek turned his expression even more sinister, and it drove me crazy. It always did. I eased my hand off Tim’s arm and narrowed my eyes. “He looks delicious. Wanna play? Winner gets all.” That smirk broadened into a full-on grin. Jason was a good player, but this wasn’t like him. If he played, he played with guns, and death was on the table. Not some boy. Not my son.

“I wanna play.” A voice piped up from beside me, and I flicked my eyes in Tim’s direction. His eyes were dark and determined. “Winner gets all.”

“No way—”

“Oh.” Jason grinned, turning to Tim. “Why don’t we save everyone a lot of time and you just come home with me right now, huh?”

Tim smiled—fucking smiled. “You win, I go home with you, no charge. We win, you’ll leave us the hell alone and get out of the bar.”

“I’ve been a good boy, Daddy.”

He shouldn’t be attracted to me, and I shouldn’t be attracted to him. It’s that simple.

There is just one question to ask.

One question to answer.

Am I all in?

Excerpt 

I’d never been so turned on, and Jackson knew that. I could tell. He was making me go slow when I didn’t want to. Making me hold out. Driving me crazy. I didn’t want to listen to him, but I did. Because if he was supposed to be my Daddy, I was going to be a good boy for him. Do what he asked of me. For now, at least. This was all new to me, and I knew that I needed his guidance. Plus I wanted to make sure that he liked me before I did anything too out there. Before I didn’t listen to him and tried to test my limits.

So I listened. Always a good boy. I stripped down to my underwear and socks—knee-high pink-and-purple-striped ones—and then gathered my pile of clothes from the floor and folded them. As carefully as I could. They weren’t particularly neat when I stacked them on the coffee table as he’d told me, but it would have to do. I’d never been that good when it came to laundry. I took care of my stuff and kept it put away, but I wasn’t necessarily an expert at it.

“Underwear too?” I asked him, looking over. It was hard to stand still, and I kept shifting from foot to foot. I wanted to be back in his lap as soon as possible, and I was sure that he could see my growing impatience. My cock was straining against the fabric, and a rapidly growing damp spot was spreading across the front.

“Underwear too.” He nodded. He’d gotten his shirt off and was folding it up with deliberate care before setting it on the coffee table.

“Yes, Daddy,” I cooed, hooking my fingers into the waistband and pulling them off. Jackson stopped to watch me, hands on his belt as my cock bobbed free instantly. “Like this?”

He swallowed. “Yeah. Like that,” he breathed quietly.

Biting on my lower lip, I dropped my eyes to his hands, which were working on his leather belt, undoing it, pulling it out of the loops. Slowly, I sunk to my knees on the spot and looked up at him. “Daddy, please,” I begged, voice soft. “Please. I want it.” 

______

After relaxing in the bath for a little while longer, we scrubbed quickly and slipped out. Jackson dried my hair carefully before wrapping a soft white towel around my shoulders. He pressed a kiss to my forehead, hands on my shoulders for a moment as I clutched the towel around me like a blanket. He pulled back and grabbed his towel, wrapped it around his waist, and tucked it into place. It did absolutely nothing to hide his cock, so tantalizingly close to me. I wanted it again, and we both knew that. My body had betrayed me on that long ago.

I tried to look as sweet as possible in the hope that Jackson would decide dinner could wait, but he just smiled and placed his hand on my back, leading me to the living room. “Sit,” he ordered. “I’ll find us something to eat.”

I perched myself on the edge of the cushion and stared up at him. “Do you want any help, Daddy?” I asked, eager to please.

He ruffled my hair and shook his head. “Let Daddy take care of you,” he murmured, touch lingering for just a second.

I watched him turn from me and head to the kitchen, eyes half-lidded as I settled back on the couch. I curled my legs up underneath me, resting against the arm and closing my eyes as I listened to him move around the kitchen. It didn’t take long for him to come back with food or maybe I’d dozed off for a bit, but he was soon settling two plates of scrambled eggs and toast in front of me, wearing a pair of black sweatpants. He’d also brought a glass of orange juice for me and a bottle of beer for him.

Smiling, I pushed myself into a seated position and rubbed at my eyes. “Does beer go with eggs?” I asked him with interest.

“No.” He laughed, pulling the coffee table closer to us. “But I wanted it.”

“Can I have a sip, Daddy?” I asked, cocking my head to the side.

“No,” he scolded. “You know that you cannot.”

“But, Daddy,” I bypassed the food and grabbing at his thigh. “I wanna taste.” I wasn’t talking about the beer anymore, eyes going toward his lap.

“Eat your food like a good boy,” he warned. “And then maybe we can play. But if you keep pouting, you’ll get punished.”

“Maybe I want to be punished,” I purred, squeezing his knee.

Forbidden lust. Forbidden love.

Blurb

My name is Nathaniel Preston. Second son of the Preston estate.

I’ve been raised to be perfect, to be ahead of every game, not to do wrong. Sem, my crass and vain older half-brother, is the complete opposite of me. All he seeks is his next high. To get there, he cheats, blackmails, and seduces.

Which wouldn’t be a problem, if one day he didn’t decide to tape me in a very compromising position…

 

Excerpt

PART 1

With a last drag on my cigarette, I pushed the door to the kitchen open. And once I did, silence broke. I could hear something. Sounds that sparked flames inside my gut, twitching to life. The kitchen’s old chimney was connected to the one on the upper level, the one in father’s bedroom.

I heard moans, grunts; I heard furniture move, scrape across the hardwood floor. Goosebumps spread across my skin, making me forget what I was here for. I put out my cigarette and tossed the rest of it into the sink. Someone was fucking in his house, in our father’s bedroom. I just had to find out who.

With a grin in place, I took off, back down the hallway, up the stairs. I used the railing to pull myself up faster. I felt like a child, so fucking excited that my mind raced to all kinds of options. Perhaps it was one of our maids or the gardener. But Jesus, in my father’s bed? That was quite bold. I loved it. So forbidden. So taboo. My favorite kind. I couldn’t stop grinning as I headed down the hallway to his bedroom. My heart thundered in my chest as my hand closed around the door handle. I counted to three, listening in on the lewd noises that were so much clearer now. So much louder. Unhinged. Like in a really dirty dream. Or a porno.

In one quick move, I yanked the tall door open, and my heart almost stopped. Jesus Fucking Christ. There were three men in the middle of the bed. Two blonds, lean, tanned, on either side of…Nate.

 

PART 2

I needed Nate, and he needed me.

To breathe, to stay somewhat sane. Which was funny because before we began seeing each other, we’d both been running around like headless chickens. Or cocks? Roosters. Anyway. Now, almost two years later, we’d settled into a routine. Something I thought I would hate. Routine. But with him, it was never predictable. Never boring. Nate kept me on my toes. Ever the brat I left behind. And while he’d begged me not to go and called me crazy for telling him to fuck other guys, I knew better. Nate was a cockslut. My cockslut, but one nonetheless. He would venture out eventually, most likely when we were fighting, which happened rather frequently. Then he’d fuck around and crawl back on his hands and knees when he was done — begging for forgiveness.

It was how he worked. How he functioned.

He loved sex, but he craved the control he could gain from it.

To hurt me. To make me mad. To be the hunter, not the prey.

So, I figured, I’d best give him rules, make it less taboo, a game we both played, before he could act out and destroy both of us in the process.

Blurb

Adam and Luc used to be close. At least they were before Luc distanced himself from Adam at fourteen, then eventually left home. Adam never got over the sting of betrayal, or the loss of his one-time best friend.

When Luc is invited back home to help get his parents’ failing dance school back on track, Adam isn’t sure he can cope with having his stepbrother back in his life. Especially when he discovers Luc’s decade old secret.

Luc left home because he was sure no one would understand that he had fallen in love with his stepbrother.

Convinced that the years of distance he has put between them will have erased his desire, Luc doesn’t hesitate to return home to help the business that means everything to his parents. Confronted by Adam once more, Luc’s past feelings re-awaken. But will revealing his true feelings to Adam heal the rift between them, or drive them even further apart?

***This novel contains explicit language and sex scenes between step-brothers***

Jackson has never felt anything from his mother. All his life she treated him badly and he thought he would never have anything good in his life. That is until Cole came on the scene. Cole was in his early forties, and he was kind, handsome and built from pure muscle. The only problem was he was about to marry Jackson’s mum, but he was all that Jackson could think about.

It was on the night of his eighteenth birthday when the only gift Jackson got was a pendant from Cole that he knew meant that there was something between them. Jackson’s innocence was something that he wanted to offer Cole, but he never knew if that chance would ever appear. For now, he would have to watch from afar and hope that his fantasies would be enough.

Maybe one day he would get a chance at a night with Cole, but a sexual relationship with his stepfather was surely off limits and taboo. Or was it?

Excerpt

On the night of my eighteenth, my mum had gone out partying with her friends and I was alone in my room. I was wearing nothing but my boxers as I stood in front of the mirror lifting my free-weights in an attempt to exercise out my anger. As I watched myself, my green eyes looked back at me from my reflection with determination. I was determined to not let this get me down, and I would go on and eventually make something of myself. There was a knock on my door, and I carried on working out as I shouted.

“Come in.”

The door was already ajar and I watched as it opened and Cole came in and stood awkwardly by the door. He was tall and muscular, and as I watched him in the reflection of my mirror I could see his pecs tense, and his nipples were erect through his tight t-shirt. He was pretty fucking hot.

“Sorry to bother you Jackson, I just wanted to come and see how you were doing.’ He stepped forward and sat on my bed behind me.

I crouched and put my weights on the floor next to my mirror and stood up. I tried to wipe the sweat that was dripping from my blonde hair as I turned to face my future step-father. He looked me up and down and his eyes landed on my toned stomach as he quickly averted his eyes. I smiled at him then.

“It’s OK Cole, you’re not bothering me at all.” Our eyes met, and I swear I felt something spark between us. I licked my dry lips and Cole caught the action. He shifted where he sat as he signalled for me to sit beside him. As I did his weight on the bed made me feel a little flustered, I turned to face him and he was looking at me intensely. His eyes bore into me and my breath hitched in my chest. He was ridiculously sexy and I suddenly felt very exposed sat here in just my tight boxers.

Cover Reveal ~ Separation by Louise Lyons

 

 

Title: Separation

Author: Louise Lyons

Release date: March 31, 2017

Length: 45,000 words

Cover design: Simon Searle

 

 

Matthew Langford is told on his twenty-first birthday that he has a twin. After the initial shock, he quickly realizes this is why he always felt part of him was missing. His search takes him 200 miles to Devon, UK, where he meets fraternal twin, Tremaine Wheal.

The pair discover many things in common, and quickly become as close as if they’d never been separated. But when they share a moment in a nightclub, each realizes there is more between them than having shared a womb. Panic sets in and they part. Once again their separation brings loneliness and pain.

Eventually, unable to stay away from each other, they tentatively move forward together as lovers. But secrets don’t stay secret for long, and discovery and questions threaten their happiness.

Note: This is a taboo story featuring twins.

 

 

Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy.

Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered FanFiction in her late twenties. Posting stories based on some of her favourite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing “hobby” more seriously.

Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad dog called Casper, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long-distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races home afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.

Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and job, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.

Review

This is certainly the stuff of nightmares: an abusive, uncaring father who pimps out his virgin son for booze money, a so-called friend who gives Jake drugs in exchange for blowjobs, plus an evil boss-man who claims this beautiful boy for his very own, but needs to destroy him first.

Gah! No wonder Jake takes drugs and wants to die. And yet he needs to protect his younger brother from their father.

Trey provides the only ray of light in Jake’s hellish life when he frees him from Zach’s clutches and saves his virginity. I’m wondering whether Trey will be the hero in the end and somehow come to Jake’s rescue again. After all, his cuddle was enough to aid him after an overdose. “Maybe because he was vulnerable and that made me want to protect him. He triggered something in me, something primal and instinctual.”

Yet at the same time, I’m also considering whether he and Weldon are the same person as there are hints to Trey being messed up and trying to restrain himself with Jake. Just wondering which dark path Kol is heading on with these guys…

Indeed Weldon is a mystery. Who is he and why does he want Jake so much? More importantly what’s going through his mind? He obviously gets turned on by seeing and hearing Jake suffer. He’s a scary man who has power and authority over his men. He gives the impression he can do anything he wants and can control others to do his bidding. At first, he appears to be rescuing Jake from his obnoxious father, only for us to find out Weldon’s intentions are even more despicable. As Trey says right at the beginning, “The world is always falling apart.” I was surprised by his last act considering Weldon wanted the boy so much. Jake wished to die before this, but now… I’m amazed he survived the violation.

As you read, you’re wondering what dark thing is going to happen next. The situation seems pretty hopeless towards the end of this instalment. And seeing the incest tag to the series, will Weldon force Jake and his brother/father into some non-con acts and use them to inflict more pain and suffering?

Kol writes suspense well. His characters and storyline are all engaging. There are some beautiful lines I especially like in the beginning of Trey’s chapter. “I wanted to be inside him, and I wanted him to be so captivated by me he forgot whatever it was that made his eyes sad, or gave him that cut right above his brow.”

Kol Anderson fans will love it!

Yes, there.

Not a tree or a bush.

A man. Definitely the build and outline of a man.

A tramp, perhaps.

Neither of us moved or made a sound.

I blinked again. The woods smelled earthy, dank, and airless.

I caught a flicker of light out of the corner of my eye and turned my head.

Something swooped towards me. I instinctively ducked, a shriek escaped my throat, and my glasses slipped down my nose.

An owl screeched and flapped its wings above my head.

I stood, straightening my glasses with a shaky hand. My heart pounded as I waited, not daring to move.

I peered into the more distant shadows again. Was that someone standing there staring at me? I blinked. Was I imagining the whites of someone’s eyes?

Reaching the wall, I placed my hands on the damp stone and gripped it hard. I drew in a calming breath, prepared to leap back, frightened that something or someone would jump up and scare the life out of me. I peered into the gloom, giving my sight the chance to adjust to the darkness. Tree trunks and branches, undergrowth and smaller bushes came into view—nothing untoward.

I removed my suddenly cold hands from the wall.

A soft rustling drew my attention downward. A mouse or rabbit, I hoped, although I tensed again anyway. That eerie, uneasy feeling persisted.

I had the distinct impression I was being watched. A shiver rippled along my arms and the hairs prickled from my skin as a chill swept over me.

Man up, Rhys. There’s no one out there.

And just to prove to myself—and my ex—that I could man up, I’d pull up my big-boy pants and check it out all on my own.

Goddammit, why am I even thinking about Myles tonight?

I’d successfully shut him out of my mind for most of the day and all of the past few weeks.

Leaves rustled on the ground on the other side of the stone wall.

Yet there was no breeze on this calm evening. The branches remained still.

Yes, there it was again—definitely movement. Perhaps a cat or some other animal scurrying around.

I sat up in the chair, alert, my back erect. Not that I was the nervous type. Myles would have laughed and called me a fucking wuss. I huffed. He’d have probably been right.

Reviews for Let Your Heart Decide

10649941_367336086748010_2585277046155140172_n

 

I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has purchased Let Your Heart Decide and to those wonderful friends and followers who shared posts and links via Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. It was greatly appreciated.

I’ve been overwhelmed by some of the fabulous comments readers have made about my taboo story via their blogs and reviews. I’m going to share some of the highlights with you in this post.

I would like to make a comment about the ending of the story without giving away any spoilers as several people have commented on it. I wanted to give my boys a HEA and to some extent I have done that, although I have left the future for them open. I debated over this issue long and hard as I was writing the story, but in the end I wanted the reader to be part of the experience.  Your reaction to the story is the reaction Rhys and Jake might face in the future from friends, family and colleagues.

I hope you ‘Let Your Heart Decide’.

So, here are snippets of reviews and the links so you can read the full reviews of the story.

Amazon and Goodreads

5*

“I have never read anything quite like this book; WOW.”

“Hmmm. I usually have no trouble starting a review. But with this book…I just don’t know where to begin. My head is spinning.

I bought this book on June 21. I finished this book on June 21. I could not put this book down. Strong writing, strong characters, fully developed plot and subplots. There was some angst but not the kind that makes you want to pull your hair out and cuss the characters out. There were some scary, gut clenching moments. There were sweet, honest, romantic moments and there were some sexy times. This book has it all.”

5*

“I totally fell in love with Rhys from the first moment I ‘met’ him and was instantly drawn into his story as he let it unfold, the loss of his mother was still fresh but couple that with losing his brother from his life and the pain felt real. It is he way that Lily shows you rather than tells which draws me into her books, and this one was no exception.

Rhys is trying to start over his life, make a fresh start and finally face his past,but it’s never quite that easy is it? Well, obviously not, but this a delicate and sensitive subject and process which is very, very well handled. Rhys is clearly shell shocked at the breakdown of his relationship with his now ex, Myles, and it sends him running home after a two year absence. Returning home and meeting up with his estranged brother is a big step for both of them. There are clearly more than the feelings of brotherly love bubbling beneath the surface still.

Then you add in a bit of a mystery, a story of loss and love and stories of ghosts and mysteries and you have me well and truly hooked, to the point where read over half of the book in one sitting. I literally couldn’t put it down.

The characters were well thought out, the emotions and interactions were almost lyrical in their feel. Nothing was left to chance, or missed out.

This was a brave and difficult subject matter to handle, and was the first taboo story I have read. It would’ve been easy to go for the easy option with this, but I always find that Lily will take the other route, and this shone through. It never once felt wrong to read about the love and connection that Rhys and Jake shared, in fact, it felt like I was intruding at times due to the level of intimacy which wasn’t always purely of a sexual nature between Myles and Jake.

Add in a love affair which almost mirrors theirs, but one set many years before. Two lovers who loved, and lost each other. There are ghosts of more than their love haunting the large country estate which backs onto Myles’ house

The scenes of intimacy were hot, but also tender. The love and emotional connection between these two men felt so right, it was meant to be. There is no way that a love so tender and consuming could ever be wrong.

It goes to show that the love you feel isn’t something you choose, your heart picks a soul rather than a person based on their looks etc, and you cannot argue with what your heart decides it wants.

I was left wanting more, to know that these two made it in the future, that fate wasn’t cruel enough to rip them apart and they got the HEA they were leaving me with and so badly deserved.

The book left me feeling warm and fuzzy inside, and goes to show, love IS love.”

5*

“So many tears. I can’t stop crying. I just can’t. The dual love stories of the brothers separated by a century and the ghosts just wrecked me. Rhys and Jake, and Samuel and Thomas were heartbreaking and poignant. Jet was adorable and the ghosts creepy and mournful. The taboo angst was sexy but not overdone at all. Very pleased. I need more from this author.”

5*

“Every so often, a book comes along that restores and redefines your faith in the m/m romance genre. This was such a book for me. It was sweet, hot, sensual, and suspenseful–everything that I need in a really great read. Yes, Rhys and Jake were brothers as well as lovers, but this very much takes a back seat to their relationship. The author does a marvelous job of not painting the situation with a sensationalist brush; not focusing on the taboo nature of it while not dismissing it entirely. I need more…”

4*

“I really enjoyed reading Jake and Rhys’s story it was beautifully written, dealing not just with the taboo relationship but also the consequences and the guilt. The side characters of Thomas and Samuel was intriguing and I really wanted to see the mystery solved and how it was interwoven with Jake and Rhys’s relationship. It pulled me in from the start and i didn’t want to put it down. It was heartwarming and funny…”

5*

“The love of a soul mate will stay with you forever…and the forever after. Two love stories intertwined, in the present and from beyond time, both helping the other to find their way back to the person they can’t be whole without. A story of acceptance, finding peace, and above all else, love. Mystery and intrigue drew me in, and the loving of souls kept me there.”

Reviews from Bloggers

5*

Wine Between the Lines

“The writing is very subtle in the book. There is no sensationalism, no tantalizing, cheap use of the incest theme to drive the plot. This was a very beautifully written book that tells not one but two love stories. It’s important to note that, unlike a lot of books in this taboo genre, this is not a story told for shock value. It is, first and foremost, a love story, not erotica, not porn on paper. So a reader going into this looking for taboo sex may find the story slow and unsatisfying. Don’t get me wrong, there’s sex. Hot sex. But it comes later in the story, after Rhys and Jake reconnect and fall in love again.”

~O~

Diverse Reader

Heat Rating: Off the charts!

“This is a love with a HEA but one that we know will always have obstacles to overcome. I loved that it was a slow build it made them finally coming together so much hotter and sweeter. The addition of all the secondary characters was just as perfectly woven into the story as the rest of the pieces. Each bringing a part that was needed into the story from the neighbors to the ghosts they all worked to bring Rhys and Jake to their HEA.”

~O~

5*

MM Book Escape

“A very powerful and gripping story where I was consumed by every word the author penned. Some will consider this taboo and not give it the credit it deserves, but in my opinion, this is a perfect reflection of love is love. A bond that is so strong that regardless to where you are you feel the pull and the need to be as close as humanly possible. Your sexual desires cannot be extinguished by any other until the two come together clashing teeth and tongues, pulling and pushing, biting and scratching to get every single piece of each other. I was completely absorbed with these moments and had to say to myself…breathe.”

~O~

5*

Rian’s Randomness

“Ordinary everyday moments like taking a walk through the field are followed by heart-wrenching thoughts of forbidden love, by sweet memories and then by sightings of ghosts. I’ve never read such a fine mix between contemporary or supernatural. The setting the writer chose helps for it – the English country with its history which you can practically breathe in the air.”

~O~

5*

GGR Reviews

“The setting of this story, in rural Britain, is gorgeous and I would love to visit the Hall and the woods, especially the little church and the grounds.

The plot is solid and not all that far-fetched and the pace of the story is quick enough to keep you interested, yet not so fast that your head’s spinning.

Finally, I have to commend the editor; they have done a great job.”

~O~

5*

Louise Lyons

“This story grabbed hold of my heart from the first few pages. Lily G Blunt writes with feeling and sensuality, making your heart ache for the main characters, brother Rhys and Jake, and for the parallel history of Thomas and Samuel, brothers painfully torn apart.”

~O~

4.5*

The Way She Reads

“The attraction between Rhys and Jake is palatable just as Rhys’s doubts and hesitations make perfect sense. Their reunion after two years apart and their journey back towards each other had me on the edge of my seat even more than the ghostly part of the story had. While the mystery certainly captivated me I couldn’t wait to see when and how Rhys and Jake would find a way to be all they were destined to become.”

~O~

4.5*

Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews

“This was a beautifully written and thoughtful story. The relationship between the brothers takes center stage, with the ghost story complementing it. I didn’t feel the romance was played for shock value, but it felt organic and pure as any other two men falling for each other. The brothers reminisce about growing up together and through that the reader is given good insight into the closeness the two always shared, their sexual explorations as teens sharing a bedroom and how it continued into adulthood.”

~O~

Two Men are Better Than One

“I loved the way the story was a contemporary story but hinted at paranormal elements. The historical components were also fascinating, weaved through the story as Rhys finds about the area he has moved in to. So as you read the book you learn about Rhys and his relationship with his brother and about him forging new friendships as he moves back to town after a two year absence. Alongside this is the story of the family who used to live in the Hall, a grand house nearby.”

Excerpt

(From Chapter One – Rhys meets his new neighbour)

The outline of a solitary figure appeared through the frosted glass of the front door. Male, I’d say, and short. Could be a kid.

I opened the stiff door with a deliberate jerk. “Yes?”

A man, probably in his mid-to-late thirties, stood before me. Short and slim, wearing long khaki shorts, sandals—no socks, thank God. His tanned hairy legs drew my attention for a few seconds too long. He held a plastic-wrapped plate in his hands with what seemed like cake on it. He looked pleasant enough, good-looking in an old-fashioned sort of way, and smiling a toothy grin not far from my face.

“Hello, I’m from next door.”

He inclined his head to the left. There was only one house next to mine, as my house was situated at the end of the cul-de-sac on a corner plot, so I gathered he was my neighbour.

“I’ve baked you a cake as a welcome gift.” He offered me the plate. “Hope you like lemon drizzle cake.” He smiled again and his eyes twinkled. Beads of perspiration dotted along his forehead. I took the plate from him before the moisture had a chance to run down his face and drip onto my cake. It was a warm and sunny June day, the first we’d seen in the UK for over a week. Typical! The day I moved house the temperature skyrocketed. Sweat dampened my pits and trickled down my back. I’d been shifting heavy boxes and stuff around for hours.

“Mmm… looks great. Thanks.” I breathed in and got a strong whiff of sweet citrus—from the cake rather than him, I hoped. “That’s very kind of you.”

“I’m Philip,” he said, edging closer. “And you’re very welcome.”

“Hi, I’m Rhys,” I said, standing firm. As nice as he appeared, I was reluctant to budge and let a stranger enter my personal domain.

“How are you settling in?” Philip peered around my shoulder and upper arm, a tricky task since I was a good six inches taller than him. “I would have offered to help you unload your car earlier, but I was mixing the cake at the time.”

I made the mistake of turning and glancing at my cluttered hallway.

Fabulous 5* Review from Kathy Mac Reviews/MM Book Escape

stars-five

“Let Your Heart Decide is a beautifully written story of love that is so strong it, literally, consumes your every thought. You try to deny it, you try to run from it, you are hoping that something or a new someone will help you forget, and when that doesn’t work, you realize it may be time to face it and ultimately accept it for what you’ve always known. But, will everyone else accept it? And… does it matter if they don’t?

Rhys and his brother Jake have always had a close relationship. Separated by two years, with Jake being the oldest, Rhys always looked up to his brother. Jake was protective of Rhys but it was more than just big brother looking out for the younger, smaller version of himself. They had a strong bond that pulled them together, and inside their closed bedroom they began to explore and share more of themselves with each other.

It felt right and natural, and to them, it felt normal. For years, the boys touched and shared kisses, but they yearned for so much more. Their need for the other was all-consuming but Rhys was heavily encumbered by guilt, due to outside forces taking notice, that would eventually send him running, and in turn, destroy what was once a powerful and binding bond.

The story opens up two years later with Rhys back and hoping to make amends with his brother. It’s time to face his past and admit, not only to himself but to Jake, why he ran from the one person he loved/loves more than any other human being.

13308361_1719526068321961_2775663581975512042_o

The author sets the scene perfectly alternating between present and past giving the reader a full glimpse into the brother’s childhood, and now as adults. Rhys is constantly visiting his memories of pastimes with Jake and he knows in his heart there will never be another to take his place. Will he be strong enough to lay his burdens down and love his brother as a lover? And, then there is Phillip, his new neighbor, who is definitely flirting, but does he want to fake another relationship?

As Rhys works on welding his life back together the author has spun a supernatural world around Rhys that he tries desperately to figure out, and at the same time, plays with the idea that he is pretty certain he is seeing ghosts. Ghosts? You may wonder if this story just fell off into la-la land, but let me say that the author had me believing and hanging onto every detail.

13320961_1719499664991268_6758261991110597220_o

A very powerful and gripping story where I was consumed by every word the author penned. Some will consider this taboo and not give it the credit it deserves, but in my opinion, this is a perfect reflection of love is love. A bond that is so strong that regardless to where you are you feel the pull and the need to be as close as humanly possible. Your sexual desires cannot be extinguished by any other until the two come together clashing teeth and tongues, pulling and pushing, biting and scratching to get every single piece of each other . I was completely absorbed with these moments and had to say to myself…breathe.

I was enamored with this story and read it from start to finish and then I went back and reread parts that I highlighted as I went along. I was not ready to say goodbye and leave these two behind. The author includes secondary characters that are just as vibrant and funny, adding another level of enjoyment that complemented this beautiful tale.

13323508_1719784358296132_8962545956217457220_o

Read this story that, at its core, is about true love, soul-mates, and a love so powerful that until the two are joined they will not know peace and happiness. Past and present lives merge in this captivating story leaving you with a smile on your face, joy in your heart, and breathless with the intensity.”

This week’s Rainbow Snippet is taken from my forthcoming taboo story

 

Let Your Heart Decide

 

Let Your Heart Decide

 

THAT NIGHT my thoughts blurred into dreams as I drifted to sleep, filling my head with memories of when I was a boy. I pictured Jake running with me down grass-topped sand dunes, flying our kites on wispy tufted downs, and rambling over the ruins of some ramshackle old castle. My heart soared in my dreams. I recalled the many nights we told each other ghost stories under the tents we’d constructed from blankets in our bedroom, times we snuggled under our duvets and shone torches under our chins, making scary faces.

In that haze of half-sleep, not sure if I’d slept yet or not, I jerked awake. Yes, wide awake now, not an interrupted dream.

And there it was again.

A cry.

Martin is a guy’s guy, one who enjoys the simple things in life: baseball games with his son, family days, barbecues, and date nights with his lovely wife.

Once a year for two weeks, Martin takes his son, Marty, to Quillon’s Covert, a rustic family cabin secluded in the beautiful California mountains. Since before those long days of learning to play ball, Marty has loved his dad, but as Marty matures, Martin starts to see something else settle in his son’s uncertain gaze. What’s there lingers a little more than it should, and it seems far more appraising than it once was.

As Marty shows every sign of taking the lead, Martin is faced with the tough choices most parents never see: lose his son by being a father, or try to balance what’s best for their relationship by being something… more.

But with another trip to Quillon’s Covert on the horizon, has the point of no return already begun?

Note: This book contains incest.

five-stars

Quillon’s Covert is a family-owned cabin set in the mountains, well away from the city and the rest of the civilised world. This tranquil place nestles among mature trees beside a lake, providing an idyllic retreat for the father and son’s annual male bonding trip. During this uninterrupted quality time they enjoy fishing, swimming, reading, listening to music, as well as cooking on the barbecue. Tradition has it they shed their clothing from the start, so neither man is embarrassed by their nakedness.
Marty is an only child and comes from a loving and supportive family. He enjoys a trusting relationship with his father, who is somewhat overprotective of his son because of an incident when Marty was a toddler. They have always been close, with plenty of affectionate contact. Marty is not a spoilt brat. He has been disciplined and taught to be respectful. As a result, he is developing into a mature and level-headed young man. He is confident enough to hug his father and tell him he loves him. Martin provides the calm and comfort his son needs. His special terms of endearment and cute nicknames are heart-warming and made me smile.

Each chapter provides a snapshot of their time at Quillon’s Covert and a glimpse into their changing connection as the years pass. We get to see both characters’ point of view and the closeness between the two men and their affection immediately becomes apparent. Throughout the story their overwhelming love shines through their actions and dialogue.

When Marty reaches puberty he starts to see Martin in a different light. He wants to be and look like his father. He crushes on his Dad’s hot body and his uncut cock. Marty is gay and Martin is straight. The men are candid about their thoughts and desires as their relationship moves to another level. They are both virgins with regard to gay sex and use their time at Quillon’s Covert to explore each other’s bodies and delve into their fantasies.

This beautiful story has an almost dreamlike quality, as if it is set in another world. What the two men did together at Quillon’s Covert didn’t extend to the real world or interfere with their other relationships when they returned home. Martin’s love for his wife was never seriously challenged. I assume she never discovered or suspected anything untoward between her husband and son. It’s almost as if these two weeks each year were a different life, set apart from reality. They provided something for each other they didn’t receive elsewhere. Both men experienced the best times of their lives here and admitted they loved each other more than anyone else. As much as they loved their other halves, nothing compared to the time they spent at Quillon’s Covert. But that’s where it stayed.

This devoted love is delightfully expressed from their first tentative touches to the hot and explicit sexual acts. Throughout the story the sex is consensual. Marty constantly receives reassurance about his father’s care and concern for him.

Quillon’s Covert was co-written by two talented male authors. Each presented one character’s point of view. Joseph portrayed Martin, while Louis wrote Marty’s sections of the story. Their writing styles are similar and complement each other perfectly, giving a slightly different voice to the two personalities.

Please heed the warnings tagged in this story and give it a wide berth if you are likely to be upset by any of them. It’s a taboo story involving biological father/son incest, age difference, cheating, explicit sex, kinks, spanking, and light bondage. Don’t be like the reviewer on Goodreads who gave the story 1* even before it was released. If it’s not for you, please move on.

If taboo is your thing or you’re open-minded, give it a read and enjoy. I can guarantee you will love this fabulous piece of writing and the heart-warming story.

**The authors provided me with a copy of this title in exchange for my honest opinion**

Louis Stevens

LOUIS is a gay romance author born and raised in South Africa. He was a shy outcast who had few friends in school; generally feeling excluded and on the fringe of society. However, when he discovered gay romance and erotica in 2007, at the age of seventeen, his mind and world opened up.

He wrote his first story, A Better Life, longhand in a 197 page spiral notebook, on his bed every night with a pillow curled under his chin. Although the book wouldn’t be published until 2011, with the now defunct Silver Publishing, he found the experience entirely liberating. He’s considered himself a writer ever since.
