Cursed Hearts by Siren Allen is part of the Hearts Unleashed Box Set!
He’d long yearned for a mate. Instead, Fate had given him an enemy.
When Yung Yoshida caught a whiff of his mate’s scent, he thought his dreams had come true. When she smiled, he’d thanked the Fates for her. Until he saw her fangs.
That’s when he realized the Fates hadn’t given him a mate, they’d given him an enemy. Pack rules state wolves and vamps aren’t allowed to be together. But the more time he spends with his mate, the more he thinks about breaking those rules.
Will Yung choose to follow his heart, or will he follow his pack?
Meet Iris. She’s sweet and shy. But get her mad, and the last thing you see will be her fangs. She was taught to fear all wolves. But there’s one particular wolf who makes her feel something other than fear. These feelings are all new and exciting. But they’re also dangerous. Should she try to explore them, or run for the hills?
Meet Yung. The future alpha. He’s the most level-headed member of the pack. He’s a stickler for following the rules. Until he meet’s a beautiful vampire that makes him rethink everything he believes in. Should he risk it all for this mysterious woman, or should he do what rules dictate, and turn her over to the pack?
In one week, you’ll find out what choices they make!

** A Steamy Peek Into The Book!**
Rhen sat up. “I want to be the one to dress you.”
His beauty stared over her shoulder at him. “I won’t say no to that.”
Rhen rose from the bed and gathered up her discarded clothes. Clothing in his arms, he walked back over to her and knelt at her feet.
“Stand up,” he told her. She did as he asked. He couldn’t resist staring at her beautiful body. Every part of her was utter perfection. His eyes fastened on her pu**y. A low growl rumbled through his chest.
“Don’t even think about it,” she warned.
“Just one lick,” he told her.
“Rhen! Don’t think about it.” She leaned away.
He leaned forward. “Too late. I’m already thinking about it.”
“Rhen!” She leaned back so far that she fell onto the bed. He pounced and spread her thighs apart.
“Rhen, I’d planned for us to bathe at the river.”
“We can do that too. After I lick you again.”
“You told me I needed to eat so I could get stronger.”
“I was talking about blood.”
“Pu**y is more nutritious.”
“What nutrients does it have?”
“Vitamin P,” he said with a grin.
Before she could say anything else, he lowered his head. It wasn’t long before her words morphed into moans. Those moans transformed into cries of pleasure as her fingers threaded through his hair, gripping it tightly, pushing his face deeper into her pu**y. And he loved every minute of it. She could smother him in her pu**y if she wanted to and he’d die a happy vampire.

Kat Davenport had one mission: kidnap her cousin’s fiancé and bring him to their safehouse. Bashing the wrong man upside the head and causing him to have amnesia was never her intention. With time running out, Kat has no choice but to pretend her new captive is her husband and take him with her until their looming threat has passed. But as her captive’s memory returns, Kat realizes he’s not only the wrong man, he may even be the threat her family is running from. Oh, and he may not even be human!
Get ready to get wicked every Wednesday and be seduced ever Saturday as I roll out Kidnapping The Vampire! Then join me in Siren’s World on Tuesdays as we chat about the previous week’s episodes. Kidnapping The Vampire is only available on Kindle Vella.
Cursed to never speak again, Kaede Oshiro hasn’t uttered a word in decades. And then a curvy witch storms into his life and makes him moan her name.
Banished to the Frostlands by his jealous cousin and his cousin’s wife, Kaede Oshiro has spent years fighting to stay alive on a frozen tundra that’s filled with creatures straight out of nightmares. Battling day after day, killing night after night has turned him into a cold-hearted shifter. His hope of returning to the mortal realm and reclaiming his title as pack alpha seems impossible. Then one day, an opportunity for him to regain his freedom arises. All he has to do is kidnap a witch and bring her to The Deciders. He thought finding the witch, Sinclair Rose, and turning her over to The Deciders would be a simple task. She proved him wrong. The moment he touched her, he experienced pain unlike anything he’d felt before. When he finally came to, he realized six things: 1. The captor had become the captive. 2. The cottage he was being held captive in was filled with Christmas decorations. 3. The witch holding him hostage was the most beautiful creature he’d ever seen. 4. When her hands were on him, he was able to speak. 5. Her presence was awaking the dormant dragon inside him. 6. He must protect this woman at all costs. However, if he chooses protecting Sinclair over completing the task assigned to him by The Deciders, he’s putting both their lives in danger. Obey The Deciders or protect a voluptuous witch who makes his dragon roar? There’s only one answer both he and his inner animal can agree on. Protect the witch. And death to any who try to harm her.
*A peek into the book.*
“I’m ready,” she whispered.
He nodded, but didn’t move.
“I’m not a small dragon.” He rubbed one finger between her wet folds. “Two of my fingers barely fit. What if I don’t fit?”
She chuckled. He looked to her face.
“I was made for you,” she told him. “You’ll fit.”
He swallowed. “I don’t ever want to hurt you.”
“Sometimes a little pain isn’t a bad thing. I want to feel you inside me, Kaede. Don’t make me wait any longer.”
He didn’t want to wait any longer. He lowered himself to her body.
“You’re not heavy,” she said, before he could ask.
It was like she was reading his mind.
“I’m a thick girl,” she told him. “I can handle it.
Happy Amazon Prime Days! For those who don’t know what that is, it’s two days of great deals on Amazon. And for your reading pleasure, I’ve made two of my books FREE during this event. One for Siren and one for M’Renee. You’re getting the best of both worlds!

She knew he was trouble when he walked into her shop. Being a mechanic and part of an all-female bike club means, Antoinette ‘Toni’ Keys is used to men looking at her and saying, “Hey pretty girl, you sure you can fix that engine?” Or, “Hey doll, you sure you can handle all that bike?” So, when an outlaw biker name Dirt steps into her shop and refuses to allow a female to work on his bike, she’s determined to show him she’s the best mechanic for the job. What she doesn’t plan on, is the instant attraction she has for him. She’s not looking for love. She doesn’t have time for a tattooed bad boy and the trouble that follows him everywhere he goes. She has her own problems with a rival bike club. Yet, she’s finding it hard to resist his wicked smile and his sexy tattoos.
He knew he was in trouble the moment he laid eyes on her. Dietrich Tate, aka Dirt, is a third generation Reaper. His club is the most important thing in his life. He’s loyal to his brothers. When one of them goes rogue with the club’s money, Dirt is the one chosen to hunt him down. Instead of finding his target, he finds a sexy brown-skinned mechanic with the prettiest smile he’s ever seen. He knows his club wouldn’t approve of him seeing her. Yet, he can’t resist her. Spending time with her makes him forget his troubled past. However, it also brings trouble to her doorstep. Trouble she wants no part of. Trouble that puts her entire club and her family in danger. Trouble that makes her not want to be around him. Dirt vows to protect her from his vicious crew. Imagine his surprise when he learns she can be just as vicious as they are. That only makes him want her more.

But wait, there’s more.
Brutal Bloodline, the prequel to the Savage Bloodline Boxset, is also FREE on Amazon!

A coward had tried to make a name for himself by taking on their family. It was time for the DeLucas to show their enemies just how brutally savage their bloodline could be.
Note to readers: This is not a romance. This is the prequel to the Savage Bloodline Mafia Romance Box Set coming 3/15/2022. Enjoy this glimpse into the DeLuca family!
There’s a darkness inside Ciera Duvai that’s begging to be released. Every day, she struggles to keep the evil at bay. When a naughty encounter with a dragon causes her to lose her skirt and her control, her true identity is revealed. She’s pretty sure the dragon in question is her mate. Dragons are an unforgiving lot, but, he’s her mate, he has to forgive her for all the crimes she doesn’t even remember committing. Right? Wrong! He wants her dead and Ciera isn’t going down without a fight. It’s time to show her mate that her monster is bigger than his.
Her touch excites the monster inside him.
Edmund Dracon is losing his mind. He’s gone too long without a mate and the loneliness had taken a toll on his sanity. His inner dragon has consumed his thoughts and is slowly taking over his body. Soon, he’ll have to be put down or he’ll become a threat to everyone. There’s only one creature who can save him from himself: his mate. When he finds her sneaking out of his castle, he thinks the Fates have finally answered his prayers, that is, until he finds out who and what she really is.
Allowing her to live would be an act of treason. Yet, now that he’s touched her, killing her doesn’t seem right. Edmund has a tough decision to make: protect a mate he doesn’t trust or protect his brethren?
Welcome to the month of love. Not only is Valentine’s Day coming up, but this is Black History month! This month, my characters will be describing their idea of the perfect date night. Feel free to leave a comment on the post telling me about your perfect date night or your plans for Valentine’s Day.
Let’s get to the interview. Enjoy!
Siren: His Justin and Tahlia. Thank you guys for chatting with me today.
Tahlia: No problem, Siren. We’re excited to be here. Right, Justin?
Justin: Yeah. Excited!
Tahlia: Don’t mind him. He’s excited. He’s just not capable of showing it. They don’t call him the Ice Prince for nothing.
Siren: That’s right. He is called the Ice Prince. Now I’m curious to know what the Ice Prince considers the perfect date night.
Justin: I’ll let Tahlia go first.
Tahlia: Okay. I’ll go first. For my perfect date night, there has to be wine and chocolate. That’s a must.
Siren: Of course!
Tahlia: We don’t have to go out. But, if we did go out, I’d want to go somewhere that wasn’t crowded. I’d like an intimate setting. Dim lights, low music playing in the background. For dinner, I’d like seafood. I love seafood. At the end of the night, maybe we can take a walk around the park. You know, to help digest the food we’d just ate. After that, we can go home and maybe have another glass of wine. You can never have too much wine.
Tahlia: Then we’d take a bubble bath. After we get out of the tub, we’d dry each other off and then lotion each other down. And, uh, after all of that touching, we’d see where the mood takes us from there.
Siren: That’s sound great. Um, are you blushing?
Tahlia: Me? No.
Siren: *Laughing* I think you are blushing. Me thinks there’s more to your idea of the perfect date night, but you’re not sharing it with us.
Tahlia: Nope. That’s it. Dry off then go to bed. Your turn, Justin.
Siren: Keep your secrets then, Tahlia. *Winks at her.* Okay, Justin, you’re up. Let the readers know your idea of the perfect date night.
Justin: Everything Tahlia said is perfect. If she wants that, I’ll give it to her. But, I don’t need any of that.
Siren: Oh, okay. What do you need for your date night to be perfect?
Justin: *Stares intently at Tahlia.* All I need is her. I don’t need any wine. I don’t need food. And when it comes to chocolate, I don’t need that either. Because there’s nothing sweeter than her.
Siren quietly fans herself. Is it getting hot in here or is it just me? Even Tahlia is looking a little flushed. And the way he’s looking at her… oh my! I think they may need some time alone.
Justin: Tahlia’s bubble bath idea sounds good. But there’s other ways to get wet. Ways that don’t involve water at all.
Siren: What do they involve?
Justin: My fingers. My tongue. My…
Tahlia: Okay! Thanks for having us Siren. Justin and I…. we need to go on a date. Right now!
Siren: Right now?
Tahlia: Yep. We’re leaving.
Siren: But…. *Watches them rush from the room.*
Well, I guess that’s the end of that interview. With the way they ran up out of here, they’ve probably already made it home and Tahlia is probably already getting wet…. No water needed. I hope you enjoyed this short interview with the characters from, Just In Time For Love. If you want to know more about them, check out their novella on Amazon.

Happy Thursday and welcome to another edition of Siren Chat. This month, we’re focusing on New Year’s Resolutions. I’m interviewing characters from my books to find out what their resolutions are. Today, we have the Killer Crew from Garrett’s Temptation joining us. But, before we get to them, I’ll share another one of my resolutions.
This year, I hope to read more. Lately, I haven’t had much time to read. And instead of waiting on me to find time, my favorite authors keep dropping amazing books. From Shani Greene-Dowdell, to L. Loren, Posey Parks, C.D Samuda and so many more, I have a lot of catching up to do. I still need to read all of the books in the Once Upon A Villain series and the A Very Alpha Christmas series. This year, I plan to carve out some time to read more. I shared 2 books from my To-Read list today in my newsletter. I’ll share them and more on my blog soon. Feel free to leave me recommendations in the comments.
Now, for what you all really came here for. Let’s chat with the Killer Crew. Not all of the guys could make it. Garrett is keeping them very busy. But, Nik, Liam, and Kris showed up.
Warning: I am not responsible for what they do or say. And please forgive them for everything they do and say.
P.S. This interview contains spoilers. Be sure you’ve read my FREEBIE, The Fallout, before reading this interview.
Siren: Hey guys, could you sit down, please? Liam, is that a bomb? Why did you bring that in here?
Liam: It’s not a bomb. It used to be a bomb. I’ve taken it apart to study it.
Siren – Why? Never mind. Guys, let’s get started. What are you huddled up in the corner doing? Oh, wow. Is that a birthday gift for me?
Nik – We heard your birthday is today. So, we got you a little something.
Siren – Feeling special.Opens the box. It’s a set of daggers. Smiles. I LOVE IT!
Nik: I told you she’d like it. You owe me $20, Kris. Pay up. You lost the bet.
Kris: Whatever! Siren, I voted to get you jewelry. Why are you happy about daggers? You’re no killer.
Siren: You’re right. I’m not. But they’re shiny and cute. And look, they’re even pointy….
Nik: Careful. They’re not toys.
Siren: I love them. I’m going to put these in my office as decoration.
Nik: What? Daggers are not decoration.
Siren: They’re mine and I can do whatever I want with them. Now, let’s get to those resolutions.
Nik: Wait, those daggers weren’t cheap and…
Siren: Would you rather have me get them dirty with blood or keep them clean and on display?
Nik, Liam, and Kris: Dirty with blood.
Siren: Of course, you’d all say that. They’re mine and I can do what I want with them. Now, let’s get to these resolutions. Which one of you guys would like to go first?
Liam: The youngest should go first.
Nik: The most handsome should go first. That means me.
Siren: You’re a twin.
Nik: Grins. But, I’m the handsome twin.
Kris: The one with the most kills should go first.
Nik: That’s still me.
Kris: That’s me.
Siren: How about we let Liam go first.
Nik: Why Liam?
Siren: Because, he’s holding a bomb that I want him to get out of here.
Nik: Makes sense.
Siren: Okay, Liam, tell me three of your resolutions.
Liam places his broken down bomb on the couch next to him. Nik and Kris scoots away from him. Siren leans back.
Liam: It’s not going to go off, guys. You know what? That’s one of my resolutions. I wish everyone wouldn’t be so afraid of my devices.
Nik: Last month, you rigged the washer machine. Now, everyone is scared to use it. And Oni is asking Garrett to buy a new one.
Liam: I’m not done with it. Once I’m finished, we’ll be able to remote-activate it. So, if we ever have to evacuate and blow up the safehouse to get rid of evidence, I can detonate the washing machine and it will take the entire place down, leaving no evidence behind.
Siren: You turned the washing machine into a bomb?
Liam: It’s not a bomb. It’s an exothermic reactor with….
Nik: It’s a bomb. It goes boom and it kills people.
Liam: *Sighs.* It’s kind of a bomb. But, forget about that. I’ve got two more resolutions. My second resolution is, I hope we can find a bigger safehouse.
Nik: That’s not a resolution.
Liam: Right. I should word it differently. I plan to go check out the other safehouses and see if they have more room.
Kris: You’re still complaining about the twins being in everything?
Liam: They own the house. Everything is baby proofed. I’m not allowed….
Nik: You’re not allowed to build sh*t that explodes in the house. Because of that, you want a bigger house?
Kris: If we had a bigger house, you still wouldn’t be allowed to build sh*t that explodes in the house. That’s what your shed is for.
Liam: Whatever. My third resolution is, I hope Scar returns soon. We need him.
Nik and Kris nods.
Siren: Oh, y’all nodding?
Nik: Yeah. Why wouldn’t we want our boy back?
Siren: Really? Because how I heard it was, you told him to leave.
Nik: Fake news, Siren. I never told him to leave. I did tell him to, you know, not be so close to Oni.
Siren: Which pretty much means leaving.
Nik: I never said those words.
Siren: Kris, how do you feel about this?
Kris: I think Scar leaving was a good thing.
Siren: This motherfu…. Why, Kris?
Kris: I haven’t spoken to him. But, I know he’s alive. If he wasn’t, I’m sure we’d know and then we’d have to kill whoever was responsible and…
Siren: We don’t have all day.
Kris: Glares at Siren.
Siren: Smiles. Please tell me why you think it’s a good idea, please?
Kris: He needs to be out on his own for awhile. And Garrett needs to no longer have his right hand man for a while. And they both need to see that they’re stronger together.
Nik: Yeah. That’s why I told him to take some time off and….
Siren: Lies. Don’t try to jump on Kris’ answer.
Nik: I’m serious.
Liam: No, he’s not.
Siren: We’re getting off track again. So, Liam, you’ve said your resolutions. Now, I want to hear Kris’.
Nik: Why Kris?
Siren: Because I think yours will take longer than his.
Kris: You’re right, Siren. I only have one.
Siren: We agreed on three.
Kris: I only have one.
Nik: Let me tell you a joke, Siren. What’s on the menu at the restaurant called Karma?
Siren: I don’t know. Um, chicken?
Nik: No. There’s no menu at Karma. You get what you deserve.
Siren: Bursts out laughing.
Liam and Kris:*Crickets*
Nik: That’s why I like you, Siren. You laugh at my jokes.
Siren: You’re a funny guy, Nik. But, we’ve got to move on. Kris, share your ONE resolution.
Kris: Peace on Earth.
Siren, Liam, Nik: What the hell?
Siren: That’s such a generic answer.
Nik: Forget generic. If there was peace on Earth, we wouldn’t have dispatch cases to work.
Kris: *Nods* I know.
Liam: And you’re okay with that?
Kris: I am.
Nik: *Appears shocked* Who are you and what have you done with my brother?
Kris: Hear me out. We have so many open cases right now. We have twins in the house. Dean and Garrett are always concerned about Oni and Rain’s safety. Nik, you’ve even been concerned with the safety of L….
Nik: Heyyyy. Shut the F*ck up. Just say your resolutions. Don’t go volunteering information.
Siren: Wait, I want to hear this. Whose safety has Nik been concerned with?
Nik: Siren, mind your business.
Siren: Is it a woman?
Nik: Nope, it’s a penguin. My New Year’s resolution is to save the penguins. Okay, guys, lets wrap this up. We’ve got somewhere to be in an hour.
Siren: Wait. You didn’t tell me your resolution, Nik.
Nik: I just did. I want to save the penguins.
Siren: No, you don’t.
Nik: Seriously, I do. Ever since I was forced to wear a bow tie to the wedding, I’ve felt a special bond with penguins.
Liam and Kris starts to laugh. Siren rolls her eyes. Liam’s ‘not a bomb’ starts to beep.
Siren: Liam, get that out of here.
Liam: It’s not going to explode.
Siren: Now, Liam.
Kris: Come on, Kid. Let’s go before we blow up the neighborhood.
Liam: Seriously, it’s not going to explode.
Kris: Come on, Kid. Happy Birthday, Siren. How old are you?
Nik: It’s not polite to ask a woman her age.
Kris: Siren isn’t a woman, she’s family. How old are you?
Siren: I’m For… Fo… Fort…. Sorry, I can’t even say the number.
Kris: There’s nothing wrong with forty. Try to say it again.
Siren: For…. Fort…
Nik: You’re a fort?
Siren: Shut up, Nik. Today, I am Forty! There, I said it.
Nik: Good, girl.
Siren rolls her eyes. Nik laughs. That ‘not a bomb’ is still ticking.
Liam: I’m leaving. Come on, guys.
Liam and Kris head out.
Siren: Nik, wait.
Nik: I really want to save the penguins.
Siren: Forget that. Do you feel any guilt about Scar?
Nik: Guilt? Why would I feel guilt? I saved a relationship.
Siren: How? They won’t even talk.
Nik: Yeah, but they haven’t killed each other. That’s what would’ve happened if I hadn’t stepped in and talked to Scar.
Siren: But you made him feel like an outsider.
Nik: I know.
Siren: That’s wrong.
Nik: At least he’s not dead.
Siren: You made Garrett feel like he was right.
Nik: I know.
Siren: He’s not right.
Nik: At least he’s not dead.
Siren: Why do you keep saying that?
Nik: You’re thinking from a person on the outside looking in. All you see is wrong or right. There’s no wrong or right here. They’re both wrong. And they’re both right. Siren, we’re not like regular men. And when it comes to love, we’re more emotional than regular men.
Nik: Hell yeah. For men like us, all we see is death and destruction everyday. We become jaded. Life becomes a nuisance. We no longer fear death. We know that in our line of work, we can be killed at any time. However, when a ray of light appears in our life in the form of love, all of that changes. The fearless become the fearful. We no longer think with our trigger finger, we start to think with our heart. Like I said before, we’re not like regular men. We don’t understand wooing and all that. All we know is one word, MINE. Our women, our love, our ray of life, belongs to us and us only. If anyone, friend or foe, looks like they pose a threat to that, they become the enemy. Scar was very close to becoming Garrett’s enemy.
Siren: But, he already is…
Nik: No, he left before that could happen. Right now, Garrett is just mad because a part of him feels like an idiot for doubting Scar’s loyalty. However, his pride won’t let him reach out to Scar, not yet. He needs time. He needs to work through his own issues. But he needs to do it without Scar around.
Siren: What about poor, Scar?
Nik: Scar isn’t poor. He got big money. He’s a money hoarder.
Siren: I didn’t mean poor that way. But, a money hoarder? Really? I wish I was a money hoarder.
Nik: You need some money, Siren? Does your husband not provide for you?
Siren: First of all, he does. Second of all, I don’t need him to. I make my own money, thank you.
Nik: Oh, right. You’re an independent woman.
Siren: Damn straight.
Nik: Mumbles under his breath – I’m so sick of independent women who won’t let you take care of them.
Siren: What was that? Are you talking about someone specific?
Nik: I said, you don’t have to worry much about poor Scar. Scar needs to find himself. He needs to find what he wants out of life. Hell, who knows, he may even find love while he’s out on his own.
Siren: What if he doesn’t come back?
Nik: He will.
Siren: How do you know?
Nik: Because men like us never turn our backs on our brothers. We fight. We fall out. We separate. But when needed, we always show up. If Scar calls, we will drop everything and come running. If Garrett calls, Scar will drop everything and come running. That’s true loyalty. It may bend. But it never breaks.
Siren: But what if…
Nik: Siren, have faith in us. In the end, everything will be okay. And their relationship will be stronger than before.
Siren: *Sigh* If you say so. Before you go, who is it that you’ve been trying to protect?
Nik: Looks down at his wrist. Look at the time.
Siren: You’re not wearing a watch.
Nik: Uh, I am. It’s invisible.
Siren: An invisible watch? Right?
Nik: Yeah. Liam made it. You know that Kid is a genius.
Siren: Have you found a woman that you like, Nik?
Nik: Me? No. I, uh, don’t have time for that. So, I’ve got to go. It’s my turn to watch the twins while Garrett and Oni have a date night. Let’s do this again. It was fun. I’ll bring the penguins next time. Happy Birthday. Bye.
Nik rushes from the room, leaving Siren staring after him.
Siren: So, readers, that’s that. I’m pretty sure Nik has a crush on someone. I’ll find out who it is and let you know later. But, what do you think about the things he said? Do you agree with Nik’s method of trying to resolve things? Let me know in the comments. I’m torn. I kind of understand what he’s saying. He’s thinking that Scar and Garrett need to be apart to realize just how much they need each other. But, I feel like he could’ve gotten them to that point with a less aggressive plan. *Sigh* Let me know how you feel about all this. Should Nik have just stayed out of it? Or was he right to have gotten involved before things escalated between Scar and Garrett?
Also, next week is the final week of New Year’s Resolutions. And I’ll be interviewing our boy, Vlad. I didn’t plan to interview him. He asked to be interviewed. He has something he wants to say about all of this. Find out his thoughts next week! Until then, be safe and always read past your bedtime! Smooches!

They say all good things must come to an end.
But that wasn’t supposed to happen to them. They were supposed to be brothers for life. But if blood relatives can fallout, why couldn’t they? Chaos brought them together. Loyalty bound them together. But love would tear them apart. And jealousy would be the reason for their fallout.
Note: This ends on a cliffhanger! This is not a romance. This is a glimpse into the past and bridges the gap between book 2, Garrett’s Temptation, and book 4, Scar’s Obsession. Enjoy!
For some couples, it was love at first sight. For Rhen Fujisaki and his mate, the love hasn’t happened yet. But the hate is strong.
He’s the leader of the vampire clan. His mate is the Goddess of War. They’ve both been banished to a frozen tundra called the Frostlands, where danger lurks around every corner. To survive, they’ll have to work together. But his mate would rather end his life than help save it. Rhen knows he’s to blame for the hatred she feels for him. Yet, every attempt to prove that he loves her usually ends with her trying to kill him. Apologies don’t work on his mate. Neither do gifts. Since his love tactics aren’t swaying her, he’s going to focus on something he’s good at – war tactics. This Christmas, he’s going to win the heart of his Goddess or die trying. *WARNING: This book ends with a cliffhanger! Book 4 coming in July 2021!
“I’m not the same vampire I was that night, Winter,” Rhen said, voice low.
“And I’m not the same Winter I was that night. I know better than to put my faith in anyone other than myself. If you need help coming up with a plan, I’ll help…”
“No, thank you. I got this.” He would show her that he could handle sh*t like this on his own.
“Rhen, I can…”
“I don’t need your help, Winter. I’ve told you what I came to say. I’ll leave now.”
“Hey, Rhen,” She called after him.
Ignoring her, he headed over to his bike. He’d just climbed on and was getting ready to shove his helmet on when he heard her open her front door.
“Get in here.”
He froze. Surely, he hadn’t heard her correctly. Not once had she ever invited him into her cabin. Moving slowly, afraid that if he moved too fast, he’d wake up from this dream, Rhen lowered his helmet and fastened it back into its place on his snow-bike. He wanted to ask her to repeat herself, but was afraid the response would be different.
Instead, he climbed off his bike. He felt like he was moving in slow motion as he walked over to her fence. He stood close to the fence and stared down at it, expecting it to spark. It didn’t. The lock on the gate clicked open. She’d let down her defenses for him. His gaze rose to the cabin, to her.
He couldn’t stop a tremble from creeping over him. She was letting him inside. His gums ached as his fangs dropped. He balled his hands into fists, not wanting her to see his nails changing into claws. Standing at her gate, staring at her, Rhen took a deep breath and released it slowly.
We will not hurt her, he told the darkness inside of him. That can never happen again. I’d rather hurt myself than hurt her. The bloodlust inside of him was rising. But it wasn’t trying to take over. It wasn’t craving her to the point of obsession. Well, it was, but it knew the consequences.
It knew that hurting her was akin to hurting himself. It knew that hurting her would send him spiraling into an abyss of depression that would lead to him going on a killing spree. It would lead to him killing any and everyone who looked at him wrong. It had damn near led to him losing his title as ruler of the vampires.
Most importantly, it would lead to his mate staring at him with fear, disgust and hatred in her pretty brown eyes. And tears. Tears, those were the worst. Seeing his mate cry was already hard. Knowing he was the reason behind her crying felt like he’d been having his skin ripped from him body.
At that thought, his dark companion, bloodlust, retreated, slithering back down into its hole. Yes, he was a vampire. Yes, he craved blood, Yes, he needed it to survive. But he’d rather die than feed off his mate again. Even just a little bit of her blood could send him over the edge. For that reason, he had to resist it.
But he didn’t have to resist her. As long as he resisted her blood, he could allow himself to be near her. And now, she was allowing him inside. Asking him to come inside. She was standing at the door, holding it open, for him. Him! His mate leaned her hip against the door and cocked her head to the side.
“Are you coming or what?”
Rhen smiled a wicked smile. I’m coming. I’m coming for you, Winter Warren. He pulled the gate open and stepped inside. For the first time since being cursed to the Frostlands, Rhen felt like was going home.
Now he just had to give his mate a reason to let him stay home.
I’ve done it. I’m TikToking. I’m pretty sure that’s not a word or a thing. What I mean is, I’ve joined the TikTok community and I have no idea what I’m doing. But, if you want to follow me while I figure it out, feel free. I must warn you again, I don’t know what I’m doing. That’s what makes it fun though. See you on the Tok! (I’m pretty sure the kids are not saying that. I’m so not hip. Do they still say hip? Maybe it’s lit. IDK.)
