Stray is a steamy MM
romance featuring a cranky panther shifter, a freshly-made vampire, & lamb-on-a-stick.
A grumpy/sunshine, age gap, opposites attract, reluctant-fated-mates pairing that must
overcome the odds to win their HEA!
Leonas is a cranky panther shifter set in his ways. He
handles security for an exclusive brothel and takes the safety of the staff at The Twig and
Berries seriously, to the extent of sacrificing his love life for work.
When a young vampire called Jeno shows up with heart
eyes and disturbing news, Leonas is taken aback. Who is this curious youth and why is he
hitting on Leonas of all people? More importantly, when is he leaving? Because Leonas has
no time for romance.
Though Jeno is running from a dark past, he can’t help but
to stop in his tracks for Leonas. The grumpy cat shifter might be prickly on the outside, but
inside? Well, Leonas is prickly there too. He needs someone like Jeno to escape the lonely
trap of his own making.
Can Jeno evade the snare of Hungary’s notorious opium
slingers? Will Leonas break the chains of his past? Together, they stand a chance, but
suffering alone is all they’ve ever known.
Stray is a steamy MM Paranormal Romance featuring
lusty incubi, greedy goblins, and mouthwatering lamb-on-a-stick. A grumpy/sunshine, age
gap, opposites attract, reluctant fated mates pairing that must overcome the odds to win
their forever HEA!
He takes the stairs two at a time in a bounding, clumsy sort
of fashion unlike most vampires I’ve encountered. A wide grin stretches across his youthful
face, but you never know with a vampire. He could be older than me, though for some
reason I doubt it. He doesn’t just look young, he acts it too, flopping into the small room,
into my space without so much as a by your
leave, and dropping his pack on the little table
next to me. The urge to bat it right off again strikes, but I resist.
“Wow. You must be Leonas. You’re even scarier looking
than Ivaz warned. But he also said not to worry. That you would act mean but that you
weren’t really mean. ‘Just a kitten,’ he said. That true? I’ve never met a panther
Irritation crawls beneath my skin and settles at the back of
my neck and the tip of my tongue. I’ll have a few words for Ivaz when next I see him. “And
“Jeno!” He says his name like it’s a prize rather than a basic
introduction and thrusts his hand toward my center, dopey grin still intact.
I stare at it through lowered lids. No. Will not be touching
him. He’s already acting too familiar for my comfort. I don’t plan to encourage it. “What’s
your business here?”
His brows crumple as he withdraws his hand. “Letters.” He
regains a modicum of his former exuberance. “I’m the new messenger.”
Since when do the vampires allow messengers to be this
young? I study him. His tanned skin still retains human pores. His mouth, a rosy shade of
pink with slight protrusions where fangs lay hidden beneath, trembles as if he’s finally
realizing he stands before a true threat and not the harmless kitten Ivaz so erroneously
made me out to be.
My own lips part as I take in his wide eyes, hazel jewels
sparkling with questions, staring at mine as if it’s I who hold the answers. They spell me with
their beauty. A rush of warmth fills my chest.
I shake myself out of it with an irritated huff. “And so? Hand
over the letters, then.”
He squints. It’s cute. I hate him.
