Sins of the past have been resurrected, predetermining their path to love.  Can they overcome the treacherous obstacles set before them?

Jax Christensen likes his life just the way it is.  He has his work, his club, and the occasional naked submissive to take his mind off everything else.  He doesn’t talk about the past, as there is no point in reminiscing about things that cannot be altered. His chest has an empty hole where his heart used to be, but he’s grown accustomed to the constant pain.   It’s become the only thing that reminds Jax that he’s alive.

Emily Weiss has never forgotten the one and only man she’s ever loved.  She’s hidden for two long years in an attempt to protect Jax and herself, desperate to try and stay one step ahead of those who want her dead.  She has information that could destroy the United Nations.  Unfortunately, they want to eliminate her first.  Emily’s exhausted and wants more than anything to feel safe once more.  That was how she felt in Jax’s strong arms and she longs to be there again.

When Jax sees that Emily has risen from the grave, his heart and soul are full of anger and regret.  He’ll never forgive her lies and deception.  He will, however, keep her safe.  He hates her for what she’s done, but he doesn’t want her death on his conscience.   He’ll protect her and then walk away.

Secrets are revealed and the danger is more sinister and deadly than anyone could have guessed.  Jax and Emily are forced on the run and the passion they once felt for one another burns even hotter and brighter the second time around.  Jax doesn’t know how he’ll walk away this time or if he even wants to.  Emily is determined to expose a high-level official within the United Nations and walk away unscathed.  She wants a second chance with her first love — even if it kills her.

Their Lusty Little Valentine Release!

Their Lusty Little Valentine (MFMM) 
The Lusty, Texas Collection

By: Cara Covington | Other books by Cara Covington 
Word Count: 73,517
Heat Level: SEXTREME
Published By: Siren-BookStrand, Inc.

[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Historical Ménage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, light consensual BDSM, spanking, HEA]

Samantha Kincaid knows what she wants in life. Since she was a teenager, she has planned to be a lawyer, a judge, and one day, maybe, the first woman Justice of the Supreme Court. Knowing that no one will credit her accomplishments locally because her father wields significant influence, she decides to head to Austin, Texas, to accomplish her goals. All is going well until she takes a wrong turn and ends up stranded in a town called Lusty when her car dies.

Preston, Taylor, and Charles Kendall recognize Samantha as the woman that was meant to be theirs when they come to her aid.

She always knew she had to choose between having a career and a family. It was never a difficult choice because she had never met a man who appealed to her enough to marry. Now she’s met three. The only real question is, can the men convince Samantha that she can indeed have it all, with them?


She didn’t answer him in words. Instead she walked over and gazed down at car’s engine.

“Did you name her Sally?”

Samantha tilted her head and spared Preston a quick look.

He must have taken her blank stare for confusion. “After the song by Mark Rice, since it came out the same year your car was born,” he said.

Not many people knew that Wilson Pickett hadn’t recorded that song first. Preston’s intelligence and the sincere expression in his eyes were a dangerous combination. She didn’t think she could ever maintain a “mad” against this man.

Good thing it won’t ever be an issue since I won’t be here longer than it takes to call a tow truck and find a motel.

“No. I call her Baby, as she’s likely the only one I’ll ever have.”

“Now that is a shame, sweetheart,” the unnamed man said. “I’m Charles, by the way. I realize you’re smart enough to know he’s Preston and this one’s Taylor. We’re brothers, and our last name is Kendall. And you are?”

“Samantha Kincaid.”

“You had to know with all that red hair she’d be Irish,” Preston said. He edged just slightly closer and looked down with her at the engine.

Samantha caught the way Preston was looking from the motor to her. He’s likely trying to see if I even know what I’m looking at. “It’s a 289 4.7 liter 2 barrel.” Her father had taught her how to do her own oil changes and how to perform simple maintenance procedures required of any car owner. She could change a flat and check all the fluid levels, and had even installed a new set of spark plugs once.

“No,” Charles said. “It’s a 289 4.7 liter 2 barrel with a thrown piston.”

Her gaze snapped up to his. “Why would you say that?”

“We heard the bang of it, and saw the way your car came to a very jerky stop. That wasn’t you jumping on the brakes, I’ll bet, but your engine seizing. Your car is going to need a new engine, Miss Kincaid.”

Charles was right. She hadn’t been the one to make the car jerk to such a sudden stop. “Well, hells bells.” She looked around the town. “Is there a phone booth somewhere? I guess I’ll need to call for a tow, and a mechanic.”

“There’re no phone booths in town,” Preston said. “As well, not a single business is open today. Sorry.”

He certainly didn’t look sorry. “You don’t have to look so happy about that.” It was pretty hard not to smile at the man. Considering the state of her poor car, and the crisis she now faced, the fact she could smile was a remarkable thing, indeed.

“What can I say?” he spread his hands, palms up, as if stating the obvious. “I’m a happy man.”

Samantha exhaled, her breath ruffling her bangs. The heat had built so that she felt as if she was in an oven. Taking a moment to scan the town, she used her wrist to blot at the perspiration on her forehead. It really was incredibly hot—and there really wasn’t a single business open. That fact shouldn’t have surprised her at all. It was, after all, Sunday, and this was a small town.

New York City never closed, but then that city was in a class by itself.

“Miss Kincaid, do you see that rather large house just over there?” Taylor pointed to the south. There were actually two large houses that she could see. They appeared to be standing nearly across from each other but about a quarter of a mile apart. She imagined there were streets or fields between them. The downtown core didn’t stretch that far, and one of the two houses put her in mind of an antebellum plantation home.

“That’s our home. Our parents and our grandparents are in residence, and I know they would be delighted for you to come over and use our telephone. Even if you have to call long distance to have someone come to your aid, that would be perfectly fine.”

“In fact,” Charles said, “if we don’t bring you home and Mother finds out about it, there’ll be hell to pay.”

The mention of family in residence eased her concern about propriety—and at the same time, ridiculously, disappointed her.

She’d eschewed much of her generation’s worship of “free love.” Not that she was a prude, but she did believe that intimacy should only be shared after a man and woman got to know each other.

It completely embarrassed her that the tiny mental fantasy that arose when she thought the word “intimacy” featured her with not one, but all three of these sexy Texan men.

It has to be the heat. Push that thought away right now!

“Oh, dear. You’re looking very flushed. Mother will be annoyed if we let you get heat stroke. You best come along.” Preston took her hand and began to lead her away from her car. “It’ll only take us about ten minutes to walk to the house. I apologize, the three of us were just over visiting some friends. We often leave our cars at home, because our town isn’t very big.”

“If we’d had any inkling we’d be rescuing a damsel in distress today, we’d have driven one of them,” Charles said.

“Although if we had, we may not have been on hand when you needed us, so there you have it.” Taylor seemed quite certain of that.

“Wait. I need to lock my car and grab my purse.”

“I’ll grab your bag for you, but there’s no need to lock your car.” Charles spun on his heal and jogged back to Baby.

“This is Lusty. No one will touch it.” Preston had hold of her hand, and tossed that nugget back to her without breaking his stride.

Her mother had told her, before she’d left home, that for the most part, Texan men were gentlemen in the finest Southern tradition, and would treat a lady with the utmost respect. Samantha made a note that the next time she spoke to her mother, she would have to deliver the news that times—and Texan men—certainly had changed.


They were, all three of them naked, and with the flick of her wrists, and a subtle kicking aside of a silken triangle, she was, too.

It took every bit of her resolve not to cover her breasts or her pussy. She’d been nude before, and even had been seen in the nude a couple of times, but this was the first time in her life she felt totally naked.

“I thought Preston told you to stop thinking.” Taylor quirked one eyebrow and Samantha met his gaze.

“Under the circumstances, it’s hard not to.”

“That’s on us, then. We haven’t sufficiently distracted you.” Charlie stepped forward and scooped her into his arms. He’d moved so quickly and decisively she gasped.

The next thing she knew, the shower had come on. Taylor tested the water, nodded, and then Charlie carried her in, and under the downpour.

Charlie set her down, and as she closed her eyes under the spray, she felt the three men move in close to her, surround her.

And then, oh, God, there were hands on her, so many hands slicked with soap and set on seduction.

“Keep your eyes closed.”

Preston Kendall is a bossy man. At the moment, though, since water was showering down on her and the scent of shampoo filled the glass enclosure, she did as he commanded.

Someone took hold of her hands and raised her arms above her head, and then she felt a tug on her hair. Following the silent directive, she tilted her head back.

“Mmm.” The sensation of having her breasts, belly, and hair all washed at the same time overwhelmed her senses. She shivered, and her pussy clenched, as if looking for a cock to grasp onto. Not one to mince words, she said, “This feels so good.”

“It gets better.” Preston’s whispered words brushed her face. He covered her mouth with his own, his kiss carnal as he plunged his tongue into her mouth.

His hand slid down her stomach in a straight line to her cunt. Fingers delved, and Samantha moaned into his mouth. She couldn’t prevent her hips from rolling toward him, wordlessly begging for more of his touch.

Preston tapered his kiss, then used his lips to caress her throat. Behind her, someone stood flush, and the press of a hot, fully aroused cock rubbed against her ass, nestling at the top of her crack.

“Your cunt is hot and wet. Is it hungry, kitten? Is your cunt hungry for us?”

Arousal soared high and fast. Samantha moaned and nodded, simple words now beyond her. Hungry? No, her body was starving for the touch of these men, nearly desperate to be filled by them.

“I think that’s a yes.” Taylor’s words sounded in her right ear, and then his lips kissed her, nuzzled her, and Samantha shivered.

“I want to feel her pussy.” Charlie’s voice had deepened and taken on a guttural edge. She felt movement and understood he was the one holding her arms aloft, as he maneuvered on her right side and then slid his hand down to join his brother’s.

Fingers stroked and then delved and, oh God, she had two fingers inside her pussy, and it felt so good.

The sounds that emerged from her seemed to thrill the men.

“You are hungry. All right, then, kitten, we’re going to take care of you right now. Come for us, baby.”

I should tell them that’s something I’ve never been very good at…the thought evaporated, fizzing out under the onslaught of their mouths and hands and fingers. Someone pinched and then tugged on her clitoris.

Samantha came, her orgasm exploding out of her, unexpected and completely overwhelming. The sound of her scream echoed against the glass shower enclosure. Arms supported her as her knees lost all strength, and she whimpered as wave after thrilling wave of life-altering energy sizzled through her.

“Hot holy hell, woman, you’re responsive.” Charlie took her left nipple into his mouth and suckled strongly.

“Let’s see how you fly, now that we’ve taken the edge off for you. Now we can love you properly.” Taylor nuzzled her neck and shoulder.

Her arms went lax. She didn’t recall Charlie releasing her hands. Then Taylor’s words penetrated, and she shivered. “Taken the edge off?” There were other words he’d spoken, too. One word in particular, that she didn’t want to hear or even think about.

He probably just said “love you” to be a gentleman, choosing not to use the crasser “have sex with you” or the even baser “fuck you.”

Samantha’s heart raced, her lungs fought for air, and she felt as if every single bone in her body had turned to rubber. Needing to distract herself from her own recent thoughts, she said, “Any more excitement and I may not survive.”

Preston chuckled. “We’ll just have to see about that, won’t we?”

Cupid Inc Giveaway: The Angel Wears Prada by Cheryl Dragon

Cupid Inc: The Angel Wears Prada
M/M Light Paranormal Erotic Romance
By Cheryl Dragon

It’s hard to find a soul mate when you have no soul. Kaden may have to settle for a Valentine’s Day date instead. Born human and forced to go evil, he has turned his back on the demonic ways. Despite demons trying to lure him back, he wants to make up for what he’s done and find love. But who will believe in him?

Cupid Inc will do its best to find him a match!

A fallen angel who adores the finer things in the human world is also looking for a Valentine’s date. Lonal longed for romance and human sexuality so much that he fell to earth to experience love. He just can’t find it. Sex and lust are easy to enjoy, but he wants a soul mate. It’s a good thing Lonal has a few tricks up his wings!


“I think I found your date, Kaden.” The bartender nodded in Lonal’s direction.
He turned and saw a sexy, tall and very muscular man with brown hair and brown eyes. He was dressed in a dark gray suit. Lust churned inside of Lonal, but he sensed something more. His date was a demon?
“Kaden?” Lonal extended his hand.
“Yes, I’m Kaden, and you are?” He shook Lonal’s hand firmly.
“Lonal.” The sparks flew and Lonal wondered how bad of a boy he’d gotten.
“Want a drink?” the vampire asked Kaden.
“Sure. Just water with lime.” Kaden slid onto an elegant barstool next to Lonal. “So you don’t feel like a fairy or a pixie. You’re definitely not a witch.”
Lonal looked around. “There are a lot of humans here. Do you want to talk about this so openly?”
“Don’t worry. It’s a mixed place, but there’s a spell on the doors. Humans forget all the paranormal information when they leave. I’m a chef here. Some of the human staff knows and some get confused by the spell. As long as McKenna is our bartender, we’re totally safe.” Kaden sipped the water the vampire served.
Lonal cleared his throat. “Good to know. I’m actually a fallen angel. I work as an interior decorator.”
“I’d have thought fashion. Nice jacket.” Kaden nodded to the leather.
“Thanks. My budget isn’t big, but I have few nice pieces. Fashion changes too much to work in it. I like creating a homey feeling that fits the people who’ll live there. It lasts longer.” Lonal took a sip of coffee and tried to read the energy coming off his date. The man was attractive but not dangerous. Well, he had power. Kaden didn’t feel evil, but there was no soul, which left the angel uneasy. “You’re a chef here and a demon?”
“Ex-demon. I don’t do that anymore. I never really wanted to.” He looked at McKenna. “I knew that might be an issue so I wanted you to meet McKenna here. It’s important that you know I work with innocent humans, and they’re perfectly safe.”
Lonal had to admit that made him feel better except for the vampire. “Vampires aren’t quite the character reference I’m used to. I’ve never heard of an ex-demon.”
“I don’t drink from humans anymore. There is a large group of vampires in New York who are trying to change the image. There’s plenty of butcher blood to live on.” McKenna refilled Lonal’s coffee.
He nodded. “That I’ve heard of, and I admire the strength it must take to change.”
Kaden took a deep breath. “I chose not to do that demon work anymore. The other demons don’t like it, of course. I never thought I’d be matched with an angel.”
“Ditto on a demon. I’m not sure this has any potential. We’re pretty different on essentials.” Lonal was in too deep with the bad boy element. A one night stand might be fine, but Lonal picked up his red ticket and debated tearing it right then.
“He was born human,” McKenna whispered to the men.
Lonal sat back and pocketed the ticket. “You were? I’d like to hear that story. With a frozen banana daiquiri, please.”
McKenna nodded and headed off to make the drink.
“Sorry about her. She can be chilly and harsh, but I didn’t pick the place.” Kaden looked around and shrugged. “I was born in 1790 in England to parents in service for a British peer. I grew up there and liked men. That part was illegal. I became a groom for the large estate.”
“England?” Lonal was engrossed. This man had lived for centuries but wasn’t some cold vampire. “Please, go on.”
“I developed a relationship with the eldest son of the family, we were about the same age and he had no interest in ladies. He loved to ride.”
Lonal stifled a laugh. “You?”
Kaden actually smiled and Lonal swore he saw a bit of a blush. “And horses. We cared for each other deeply. But one of his brothers caught us and told his father. I thought I’d be turned out without a reference, but I was turned in to the authorities.”
“Oh God,” Lonal whispered.
