    Synopsis

    Hidden within the pages of this anthology, are the impassioned journeys of four separate, erotic, urban fantasies. All are connected by the mystifying ancestry of descendants of the dragon. Two star-crossed lovers are torn apart after a single night of passion ends in tragedy, a three-way tryst that becomes a life or death ordeal, a jilted love triangle in an exotic land, a centuries old curse and ancient lineage that haunts a blood line for generations to come. 

    The Double Dragon’s Blood Series comes jam packed with tantalizing sex, riveting action and heart warming romance. Inspired by continuous requests of fans, Kali Willows has brought together her best selling stories of her delicious dragon twins and other sensational characters in one complete collection for you to indulge in. With the mysterious match making skills of Madame Evangeline and her 1Night Stand service, explore how it all began and unravelled for our dragon heroes and heroines. 

    Dragon’s Bond

    In 1952, it’s not proper for a woman to chase after a man, but Lien Long is no ordinary woman. Shattered by his abandonment after their single night of passion ends in tragedy, she travels from a life of sexual servitude in Shanghai to San Francisco to chase her career, her dreams, and her one true love. Armed with new knowledge of her dark lineage and at the encouragement of a colleague, she enlists the help of Madame Eve to arrange a 1Night Stand, in hopes to find her way into the arms of her soul mate once more. 

    Cursed with an ancient legacy he knew nothing about, Shen Li flees to San Francisco after the devastating death of his twin brother. Tormented by the guilt and shame of his indulgence in lust and his longing he cannot diminish for his beloved, he accepts the advice of his mentor and boss, to contact the 1Night Stand services. He seeks an escape of passion to release his sins of the past and move on with his life. What awaits Shen is eye-opening truth about the life he had forsaken. Will he find the night of fiery paradise he hopes for? 

    Double Dragon Seduction

    Gwen Trembley is disturbed by the upcoming wedding of her reprehensible ex, and coping with her emerging fiery talent. Gwen seeks the services of 1NS for a night where new carnal knowledge will revive her damaged soul. Madame Eve has the perfect arrangements, but perhaps twice what she bargained for. 

    Twin brothers Tatsu and Yong Li, are in desperate need of a unique woman who can accept them as inseparable. They carry not one, but two secrets. These exotic brothers can’t be with just any woman, and if Gwen is willing to try, she will face the most passionate, lust-filled night of her life, but will she survive? Will they? 1NS finds a match they never expected possible.

    Dragon Temptation 

    Cindy Dunham has become sexually emaciated, after a long dry spell and no prospect of romance in her near future. With her best friend’s upcoming wedding, loneliness is taking the lead, and she is starving for erotic rhapsody. The prospect of a blind date for the nuptials is embarrassing, but a necessary evil. The match Madame Evangeline finds for her leaves her reeling with conflict and jealousy. Will she ever get her carnal hunger gratified? 

    Yong Li, is no longer satisfied being the third wheel in his brother’s love life. Desperate to branch out and have an experience all his own, he is fraught with his ancient affliction that runs interference with the prospect of any normal relationship. Having had a life altering 1Night Stand before, he seeks the help of his old friend, Madame Eve to find a new mate just for him. 

    Dragon’s Breath 

    Eternal suffering is the fate dealt to Roark Blackwell. A fierce protector under a curse, he longs for a woman can never have. By day, a hideous stone creature, and by night, a flesh and blood immortal, starving for the touch of a single woman. After centuries of torment, he takes his destiny into his own hands and seeks the help of Madame Evangeline. For a single night, he wants to feed his carnal cravings, but what happens when morning comes? 

    Living dangerously comes second nature to Kaida Lee. Struggling with her dark sexual appetite, her fiery temper and her ancient lineage makes finding an ideal match impossible. A descendent of the dragon, she has a genetic burden that no mere mortal could withstand. Having two cousins succeed in romance with the aid of their friend Madame Eve, she seeks satisfaction through the services of 1Night Stand.

    IF YOU CAN'T STAND THE HEAT

    NOW AVAILABLE!!

    Derek Dunne is a Cordon Bleu-trained food critic for the prestigious New York Monitor, whose scathing review of a popular Italian bistro has driven away all but the most loyal neighborhood patrons.

    Lucrezia Serafina DiCicco is a clumsy business school drop-out, working as a chef and scrambling to keep her family's restaurant afloat, after her father develops diabetes and is banned from his kitchen for his own good.

    Now, with The Monitor folding, Derek is searching for his next career path and longing to get back to his first love—cooking—while Lu is desperate for an influx of cash to save the struggling restaurant…even as her father puts his foot down about non-family employees.

    Derek and Lu embark on a marriage of inconvenience to save the restaurant. But can Lu ever really trust the man who nearly destroyed her family, once noted her initials spelled “LSD,” and her food was like a “bad trip?”

    Or will it be their hearts on the chopping block?

    EXCERPT



    She brushed her hands on her apron and straightened her shoulders as she strode toward the bar. Not in the mood. So not in the mood. As if the hunky stranger had come here looking for a hook-up, rather than to send back his too-salty pasta fagiole or rubbery calamari or register some other grievance.

    She looked a fright besides. The moon might resemble a pizza pie but amore did not live anywhere in the restaurant anymore, except in its name. As that bastard Derek Dunne had pointed out in his review. Vicious…but truthful, she had to admit.

    As she approached the customer, she positioned herself with her back to the mirror over the bar, so she didn’t have to gaze at her sorry reflection. At least no one else was at the bar to gawk at her frazzled condition.

    The man swirled a pool of condensation on the burled wood with his index finger. Strong hands. No rings, she noted. Up close and personal, his looks were even more devastating, the essence of hearty masculinity radiating raw, contained power, his body taut with  muscles beneath a finely-tailored suit that stretched across broad shoulders, his blue eyes intense enough to put her in a near trance. She gazed at his long, blunt fingers playing restlessly on the bar and imagined him sliding them across her heated flesh. Making her wet. Thrusting inside her. His thumb stroking her clit until it swelled, the pleasure so unbearable he had her writhing with passion, screaming for release.

    Holy cannoli! What the heck was wrong with her? Was she that desperate? Yeah, probably. And yeah, he looked that good. Good enough to eat. With or without whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Oh, yeah. That image helped cool down her roaring libido. Not.

    Suppressing a shiver, she cleared her throat. “I’m Lu DiCicco. You wanted to see me?

    Katalina Leon's PORTRAIT OF A LOAN WOLF


    Portrait of a Lone Wolf is book 7 in Decadent Publishing’s multi-author series, Black Hills Wolves. Portrait of a Lone Wolf is my first contribution to the series. I have a second book coming soon.

    Blurb:
    A mixed-blood Native American wolf-shifter, abandoned by a teenage mother and ignored by an absentee father, Rio Waya has never fit in or felt worthy of love. But when he comes home to the Black Hills, he realizes he wants a mate of his own. 

    Recovering from a cheating ex who started a new family behind her back, Sela López seeks escape to pull her life back together. As a documentary filmmaker and wildlife photographer, she rents a cabin in the Black Hills with plans to film the beleaguered wolf population. But she’s so busy looking through a camera lens she doesn’t see trouble coming. 

    Sparks fly as mutual fears and vulnerabilities surface when Sela and Rio meet. She can’t figure out why the mysterious Mr. Waya is so anxious about having a documentary made of the Black Hills Wolves. But when his secret is exposed, all hell breaks loose. Can Rio win Sela’s trust and soothe her fears about allowing a hunky wolf-shifter into her heart? 

    Excerpt

    Excerpt #3 (WC 278)
    “Medium rare.” Gee set a steaming hamburger buried beneath heaps of fries and onion rings in front of Sela.
    Everything on the plate looked delicious. “Thank you. I thought I ordered this to go?”
    “Stay awhile. Enjoy your food.” Gee gave Rio a sickly sweet little grin. “L.A. stood up to you. I like her.”
    The crease between his brows deepened. “Gee, no one asked your opinion.”
    She gingerly picked up a fistful of scorching hot fries and ferried them over to Rio’s plate.
    He appeared puzzled. “Why?”
    “Peace offering.” She wondered what he looked like when he smiled. “I’m sure yours are cold by now.”
    Rio picked up one of the token offerings, lifting the hot french fry to his lips. He didn’t even care he was about to get burned big time. In fact, he wanted the pain. Better to take the punishment now than suffer a shitload of hurt after he did something stupid like make a play for Sela López, which absolutely, positively could not happen. To his eyes, she was knockout gorgeous with killer curves. She had plenty of sass, too. She hadn’t backed down a bit from his most withering I- just-put-you-in-your-place look.
    Something else caught him off-guard—her scent. One whiff of her subtle female aroma had brought his blood to a boil.
    Holy crap, what had he gotten himself into? By the tone of her e-mail inquiries about the cabin, he’d come to the false conclusion Miss López was a dried-up academic collecting data about the Los Lobos wolf population. Instead, a Latina temptress with an ass that made him want to bite his fist and whimper had shown up.

    Eva Lafoy's TRIO CONCERTO

    TRIO CONCERTO

    By Eva Lafoy

    A story from the "Sexy to Go" collection
     


    Give yourself a Valentine

    Every Valentine’s Day seems to arrive even faster after Christmas. Doesn’t it? Time moves so swiftly now that it’s hard to keep track of the days let alone holidays. But Valentine’s Day is still the king of romance and romantic gestures. If there’s nobody sweeping you off your feet this year, or if everyone’s just too busy, try out Sexy to Go.

    Myself and ten authors created this short story collection just for busy readers. Our stories are short enough they don’t take too much time to read, and sexy enough to make you blush. What better way to spend the ride up the elevator or standing in line at the post office than with a hot story?

    Even better, this is only volume #1. There will be a new volume released every month, so if you like us, come on back!

    My story in Volume #1 is a ménage. A woman arrives for a concert a day early and spies on a couple having sex in the woods. She’s really enjoying herself thinking she’s a super spy - until she gets caught…

    Excerpt
      
    Another twenty yards or so and she’d be able to see them. All she had to do was get close enough to peek around a tree trunk if she couldn’t see through the bush. Stealthily, she skulked toward them, her feet not making a sound.

     “Please, Liam. Oh God.”

    “No. You must learn to wait. Maybe this will satisfy you in the meantime.”

    She squealed, then let out a harsh breath.

    Casi could only imagine what Liam had done to her. Maybe inserted a finger or two, which had made her cry out. But why was Liam not letting her have his cock? Why was he such a tease? She felt sorry for the woman, and angry at Liam for not satisfying her.

    Her tightly wound body felt teased by their lovemaking, too. Her nerves thrummed in time with the woman’s soft grunts. Every step she took swelled a pulsing need inside her. If she was smart, she’d go back to her car, slip her hands down her jeans and get her own release. The idea certainly held merit, but didn’t promise as much excitement as watching Liam and what’s-her-name fuck. Even if it was wrong to snoop on people. Oh hell’s bells, it’s a public area. I’m a member of the general public, aren’t I? After driving all the way up here I might as well get something out of it.

    A few minutes later, she reached the bush. Peering through it, she saw a scene that shook lust through her. A woman with long dark hair and an Eva Mendes build clung to the shoulders of the man beneath her as he laved and suckled her breasts. His cock was hard and pointed at her entrance, but no matter how she tried to lower herself onto him, he held her suspended too high to reach satisfaction. Moisture left over from his mouth glistened on her dark olive skin. Her brick red nipples were budded tight and flushed with color from his attention. Each time Liam drew one into his mouth, Casi’s pussy clenched. Oh my God. This is so hot.

    Wanting to see more, she brought her hand up to part the branches. As she pushed the foliage out of the way, a hidden weak twig snapped. Liam’s gaze immediately locked onto her hiding place.


    So, what happens next? Does Casi run away? Does Liam capture her? And if he does, what do the three of them do together in the woods?

    Find out in Sexy to Go, Volume 1 and have a happy Valentine’s Day!

    Deena Remiel's FINDING LOST

    Deena Remiel's FINDING LOST, from Fated Desires Publishing's new special line, "On the Run."


    BLURB
    How could anyone be miserable in paradise? Carrie Samuels could write a book about it. Far away from her family and friends, she’s fled to Isla Mujéres hoping to escape a relentless stalker who knew how to torment and leave no calling card. What started out as a short-term solution has turned into a long-term jail sentence on a tropical island.
    Painfully handsome, with a killer smile and well-hewn body, Dillon McMahon left his past behind and plans to spend the rest of his life off the grid on Isla Mujéres, the perfect place to dig in. Living next door to a sexy, quirky, and mysterious woman makes it all the sweeter.
    When Carrie and Dillon’s pasts collide with the present, it threatens their budding relationship and sends them into a maelstrom of danger, abduction, and attempted murder. Sometimes, no matter how far you run, you just can’t hide.

     EXCERPT

              “Change your name, and your hair color. Then move far away from here and lay low. I’m sorry, but at this point, that’s the best advice I can offer you.”

    Laura slumped in the rickety wooden seat next to the detective’s desk and pounded her sweaty palms against the armrests. He couldn’t be giving up on her case! But the truth of the situation mocked her with every hopeless word the defeated man spoke. Just like all the others, he’d been bested. One psychopath had managed to render New York’s finest and a host of private detectives impotent.
    “I don’t understand. How can this monster make my life a living hell day after day and not get caught? How can he continue to terrorize me like this and not leave any trace of who he is?”
                Detective Roberts gnawed on a sunflower seed and spit the remnants into a paper cup. Had he gotten a little grayer around the temples since the last time she’d been to the station? “He knows what he’s doing, how to play the game. I’m thinking he could be one of us, or someone who’s been in law enforcement. It’s uncanny the way he can do so much and not slip up. It’s pissing me off.”

    You’re pissed?” she scoffed. “What about me? According to you, my life is about to be over as I know it.” She grabbed a tattered tissue from her purse and blew her nose. As she took a quick look in the makeup mirror, her complexion told a sorry story of incessant stress and sleep deprivation. What a mess. She plunged the mirror back into her bag and noticed paper clips strewn across his desk. One by one she gathered them into rows and columns. Then she gathered each row and deposited them back into the paper clip holder.
                “Listen, I’m not giving up on you or on trying to find the sick bastard. I just think it would be best for you to disappear into a whole new life. As long as your stalker remains a mystery, it’s not safe for you to be… you. I could suggest what I’m sure all the others have— change your routines, move to another part of the city, or hire security…”
    “I’ve done all that already, and he’s still around.”
    “The last, most severe response is to skip town and start fresh somewhere else. Keep a low profile in some invisible job where nobody knows who you really are.”
    “Do you realize what you’re asking me to do? I own a thriving book store. I have family and friends. I can’t just give it all up. Then he wins.”
    “Isn’t he winning now?”
               She raised a brow and turned away, preferring to straighten the various piles of paper on his desk and align each container to another rather than face the truth.
