#NewRelease - CONJUNCTION by @MerrynDexter #MM #ScifiRom




Once a pirate, always a pirate?
Cullen Rex, former space-pirate is now Head of Security on the transporter – Medusa. The captain of the Medusa will move anything (and anyone) if the price is right. Their latest mission is to deliver a passenger to the blighted planet of Elexon in time for the Conjunction.

Once a prince, always a prince?
Exiled ten years previously, Mycel Laast has hired one of the toughest crews in the nearby galaxy to get him home to Elexon. The Conjunction approaches, a time of myth and wonder for his people, and he longs to witness this once-in-a-decade event. At least that is what the crew of the Medusa believe…

The best kind of trouble
Getting involved with a stuck-up royal is the last thing Cullen wants, but it’s lust at first sight and their new passenger goes out of his way to make his interest clear.

What starts as a fling soon grows serious, but a relationship built on a foundation of secrets and constructed from lies is no relationship at all. Can Mycel trust his brutal, beautiful lover with the desperate truth about his mission home?






Excerpt



His feet ate up the distance. Two more turns, one more flight of stairs, and he could ignore the determined steps echoing in his wake. The “Danger! Toxic Materials” warning sign Davian had stuck on his door in jest shone brightly at the end of the corridor. Almost there.

“Cullan—”

With a roar of frustration, he spun on his heel and grabbed Mycel, pinning him against the wall beside his door. “Leave me the fuck alone!”

Sweat dampened Mycel’s chiseled features, his short blond hair lay every which way. He looked so different from the impeccable façade he presented to the world. He looked mussed up, a little grimy, and totally fuckable. His pupils dilated, eating into the icy-blue irises, but his voice remained steady and cool as he spoke. “If that’s what you really want?”

Cullan ground his teeth together so hard, he feared they’d shatter. Arrogant bastard. “I just told you so, didn’t I?”

“Fine. Message received.” Mycel wet his lower lip with the tip of his tongue and Cullan locked onto the tiny motion. “Cullan—”

“Hmm?” The dark pout of his lower lip glistened. An image came to mind. One he hadn’t thought of in years, one he’d cast aside with all the other unnecessary baggage. Dew glistening on the petals of a rose in his mother’s garden. He’d snuck out early to cut one for her, a birthday gift.

Elegant fingers curled around his nape, tangling in the thick strands of his hair. They tugged hard enough to sting, the perfect edge of pain to match the jagged rent in his heart torn open by the unexpected memory. “If you want me to leave, Cullan, you have to let me go.”

Awareness filled him on the heels of Mycel’s soft admonishment. The palms of Cullan’s hands rested on the other man’s hips; a more-perfect fit couldn’t have been sculpted by a master carver. Chest to chest, he’d leaned his full weight into the prince, trapping him against the wall. His cock pulsed and twitched in tandem with the answering thickness resting beside it. “I don’t want you,” he muttered.

Mycel smiled and yanked the fistful of hair he gripped at the base of his neck. “Liar.”

Cullan groaned. It had been too damn long since anyone had handled him with such surety. He liked to lead, to steer and direct his chosen bed-partners. This was new. Different. Dangerous. “I don’t want to want you,” he forced the confession past his lips.

“Better.” The mocking smile was too much to bear. Cullan wanted to knock it and the rest of Mycel’s sculpted features into next week. He wanted to kiss him until all that arrogance crumbled to whimpers of need and heat. He just fucking wanted.

“You’re playing with fire.” A final warning to them both. His hatred and disdain for the highborn man were no match for the desire heating his blood. Digging his thumbs into the perfect dip above Mycel’s hipbones, he tugged him closer though barely a breath separated them.

The icy lure of his eyes sank deeper into Cullan’s soul, as cold and all-consuming as deepest space. “Burn me up, Cullan.” Lips softer than those of any man he’d kissed fluttered over his, the delicate brush no more than a whisper of silk, and Cullan broke.

Excerpt


Aware of his eyes on her, she wiggled out of her jeans. Next she stripped off her shirt and let it fall to the floor.

He stood before her in his shorts. Her gaze locked in on his ribbed, muscular chest. She wanted to photograph him. Up close and very personal. Know every inch of him. Rub herself against all that hot, hard flesh and lick her way down his chest.

His throat cleared. “What are you thinking?”

“Huh?”

His arrogant smile ticked her off.

“What were you thinking about? Your eyes got this faraway look and you were rubbing your fingers together.”

“That is none of your business.” Heat crept down her skin.

He took her hand in his and pulled her against him. “If you were thinking about me, then it’s entirely my business.”

His chest muscles rippled beneath her touch and his heart thumped to a wild beat. She inhaled the masculine scent of the wild outdoors. Found herself drawn closer to him. Yearning for so much more.

He tilted his head down and kissed her. Like a man drowning and only she could save his life.

She moaned and pressed against him, wanting so much more.

He lifted her in his arms, carried her to the couch and laid her down. His weight settled against her, and his hard cock nested between her legs. It was torture not having him inside her.

His blue eyes glittered with need as he stared at her. “Do you want this?”

“Yes.” Her breath caught in her throat. More than she imagined, she wanted to be his. Even if it was only this one night.

He leaned down and kissed the side of her neck. Her eyes fluttered closed as his stubble rubbed against her skin. Her body softened while she wrapped her arms around him, drawing him closer.

He lifted her shirt up, exposed her breasts to his gaze. He undid the clasp in the front of her bra. She was thankful for finding a supplier for that particular style. His lips locked around her nipple. Heat pulsed throughout with each suckle he made.

Her hands slid under his shorts to glide over his taut buttocks. She grasped them and pulled him closer. There was a strength within his body that she wanted to explore. To engage with in pleasurable battle.

He lifted his head, and their eyes locked. His normally light blue eyes blazed a dark sapphire. “You’re beautiful. All mine to enjoy.”

The intensity of his gaze inspired a well of feminine desire to soften her hunger. Their passion was more than just sex. She wanted to be his, to surrender to the ferocity of the need to mate with him.

Outside, lightning flashed and the loud thunder boomed so close that the cabin shook. The storm reminded them of its presence.

She pulled his head down and bit his lower lip. He growled and hungrily took her mouth in a frenzied kiss. His tongue swept in, tangled with hers in tempestuous kiss. Nothing existed but the fevered rush of his touch.

Needing to breathe, she wrenched her mouth from his, gulped in air, and tried to regain her thoughts. “You’re dangerous to my peace of mind.”

#NewRelease ~ Dark & Dirty featuring Lea Bronsen

 

Four dangerously dark and delicious stories that will awaken your dirtiest fantasies.

  Introduction by USA Today bestselling author Jenika Snow.  

NOT ONE NIGHT by D.C. Stone: One night of pleasure isn’t worth losing a lifetime of friendship. Or a reputation. Or a career. A spot in the social standing. That irritating innocence. Or the always-so-present pride. ... But it is worth losing her heart.  

REDEEMER by Kastil Eavenshade: His family has the wealth and power to give him anything … except approval. Gianni Bencivenni marks his time in lines of cocaine. One lover is the same as the next within the walls of addiction—until his family puts a contract out on his life. On the run with the last man he wants to be in close quarters with, Gianni has to decide whether his yearning for acceptance and love can overpower his need for a drug-filled haze. Johnny “Butcher” Mascagni marks the black sins he commits. Death is his profession and ghosts of the dead haunt his waking moments. His penance for the dark life he’s led. Through all the men who have shared his bed, love is a promise that eludes him. When a former lover becomes his last assignment, Butcher must decide if he can set his demons free and open his heart again.  

SLICK by Lea Bronsen: Ex-convict Luke has been fortunate enough to land a small job as a kitchen assistant, but he’s lonely and crippled by baggage from the past. CEO Roman Spencer also has his share of problems. It doesn’t help that a tough and hot-headed kitchen worker begins to plague his mind…and body. The more Luke runs into Roman, the more his dark fantasy turns into attraction. If he surrenders, his thug pride will effectively go down the drain.  

ADDICTIONS by R. Brennan: Alexis Harrison is a mess. She’s managed to blow out her knee, lose her scholarship, and get hooked on pain killers. Now she’s playing mule to her dealer, who is her only friend, to support her ever increasing habit. If something doesn’t change soon, her addiction is going to cost Lexi more than just everything.

Blurb:


She’s caught between the para and human world…he’s always been an outcast.
At the Wiccan Haus, they’ll find each other and paradise.

As a crossbreed good fairy, Bliss is tired of goodness, light, and everything that’s right. Talk about boring. Her human half demands a bad boy. Someone who’ll curl her hair and toes, while also cherishing her. In other words, the whole enchilada.

Enter Fallon. Tall, dark, handsome, and seriously dangerous. No, seriously. He’s a reaper. Trouble is he’s started to covet human emotions. Longing. Lust. Love. He needs healing fast to get his head screwed on right and go back to the way he was.

Bliss doesn’t agree and is determined to show him another way. Sometimes you have to break all the rules to find your destiny.




Excerpt


Of all the places Fallon wanted to be, the Wiccan Haus wasn’t one of them. Of course, innumerable problems awaited him off the island he couldn’t escape any longer. His superior ordered him here to heal or else.
Fallon couldn’t imagine what new stuff he’d get stuck with that’d be worse than what he’d known his entire existence.
Dread dogged him, but he slung his knapsack over his shoulder. Time to get this show on the road. Then again, maybe not.
Bliss loitered in the doorway, gaze hopeful, lips parted, her fragrance lingering as she did. She smelled of the first warm breeze in spring. Air wrapped in sunshine. Yet her musk conjured visions of decadent nights lost in her carnal embrace. An enticing paradox.
No one had to tell him she was a good fairy with a darker, human side. Sin flared in her gray eyes. Oatmeal-colored freckles sprinkled her small nose and rosy cheeks. For a fae, her height amazed, but her hair color was the ultimate giveaway as to her true ancestry, being a crossbreed. The top part was startling white, the bottom half that grazed her shoulders was pure black. Two toned like Myron’s, but naturally so.
Bliss couldn’t hide what she was any more than Fallon could with himself. Beneath his T-shirt, he bore a mark that revealed his heritage. The seer didn’t have to see it to know what Fallon was. Humans didn’t either. Eventually and instinctively, they caught onto the danger he posed for them or their loved ones.
Bliss hadn’t noticed. Yet.
Her smile invited—a come-on no sane man could resist. Sugar and spice with loads of vice. By all the gods in the universe, she was something. Rather than walk, she glided and wore clothes once popular in the nineteen-sixties: a sheer white blouse with puffy sleeves and faded blue jeans. She was and wasn’t barefoot, having tied strings around her slender toes and ankles then decorated them with silver and crystal hearts. Wickedly cute.
She should leave.
She had no business being around him. For her to believe he could deliver anything but grief, as he had to countless others, was seriously nuts. His outer appearance and persona attracted her, not the monster inside. The reaper he was and would always be.
Contrary to what humans or many paras believed, reapers weren’t skeletal, decked out in funeral attire, their hair oily and slicked back, skin icy, breath fetid.
Even the bravest fool would run from someone like that, which made reaping far too difficult.

TGR, or The Grim Reaper, Fallon’s boss, came up with a solution. He made his male and female soldiers attractive so they could easily seduce those whose souls they sought. Like a moth drawn to a flame or a fly stuck in a spider’s web, the poor suckers didn’t see anything but good looks and forgot to protect themselves until it was too late. That’s when Fallon and his fellow reapers pounced. The mortals still fought, pleaded, and wailed, but by then they didn’t have a prayer.
