Bloodbath

(Guns N’ Boys 06)
by

K.A. Merikan

“I don’t even know who I am anymore.”

“All you need to know is that you’re mine.”

Seth would follow Domenico to the depths of hell. He promised to always be at Domenico’s side. But hell becomes all too real when they infiltrate the world of Toro – a notoriously security-obsessed arms dealer, who has eyes and ears everywhere.

Seth becomes unable to steal even a moment of intimacy with Domenico, and the tension grinds them down each day. Beyond the deceptive paradise of Toro’s villa, violence is an everyday occurrence, and the swimming pool could just as well be filled with blood. To survive, Seth has to become the man Domenico needs him to be, but in the process, he might lose who he truly is.

With Seth trained up, and Mark as backup, victory is so close Domenico can taste it. They just need to prove themselves to Toro as valuable assets. With each day though, Seth seems to be drifting away from Domenico, hidden behind a mask of cruelty and indifference. It is exactly what Domenico asked of him, so why is it so difficult to see Seth become his mirror image?

The ugliest truths blossom into the prettiest lies. 

A year into the relationship with Domenico, Seth still wants him as desperately as ever. Nothing is better than being intoxicated with lust for his deadly man and feeling his steady hands all over.

Guns n’ Boys series

by

K.A. Merikan

‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a twisted, dark erotic romance mixed with a crime thriller. It’s a long, turbulent journey of one couple deeply entrenched in the dealings of their mafia family. Behind the morbid humor and extreme violence hides the intense love affair of Domenico Acerbi, the mafia’s best hitman, and Seth Villani, the Don’s son.

Together, they have to deal with their blooming affection for each other, their family’s homophobia, their own prejudice, lust, jealousy, and violence. In true anti-hero fashion, they do so in most morally ambiguous ways.

Blurb: — Faking their own death was the easy part. —

After months of recovering from his injuries, Seth struggles with who he has become. Afloat in a reality he never planned, he tries to find the lost pieces of himself again. Find the purpose, motivation, and strength to get back into shape. He is sick and tired of being a burden for Domenico, who seems to have it all together.

When Domenico’s jealousy pushes them into the spotlight of a biker gang with connections to their former mafia family, Seth decides to step up, and make his own decisions, no matter what risks they might entail.

Domenico Acerbi can’t trust anyone. Nightmares of Seth’s torture are still haunting his dreams, and if he and Seth are to leave the country quietly and disappear off the mafia’s radar, he needs to stay in charge and keep everyone under control. What he doesn’t need is Seth giving him attitude, keeping secrets, and distancing himself for no reason. And as if Domenico didn’t have enough on his plate already, Seth forces him to help some hooker.

Being stuck in the swamp with a kid hunted by a bunch of bikers is not Domenico’s idea of lying low.

WARNING: Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.

‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the third book in the Guns n’ Boys series. Seth is recovering from his ordeal he went through in the last book. Dominique is still a badass with violent tendencies when the need arises. There is violence in this book so if you’re not interested in that I would advise you not to read this book.

There are some hot sex scenes throughout and I’m sure readers would love them but I still have mixed emotions about this series considering the main characters are related. I liked everything in this book except the intimacy between Seth and Dominique so I skipped those parts after reading the first scene.

All in all it was an o.k. read.

Heat Level: Explicit
Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥4.5 Hearts
Blurb: Théoden: Tonight, I have to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. I have to choose which two on my children to send off with my Sire, my King, Ara. As you know, I don’t like to share what belongs to me, but I can’t deny my King what he’s commanded of me. The highlight of my evening, however, will be my ascension to Prince of the City. I’m expected to announce my own decree at tonight’s ceremony and I can’t wait. The citizen of the Kingdom of Ara WILL respect my rule… or else.

Noel: I got a break last night when Théoden allowed his sons some free time. But tonight is going to be no walk in the park for me. Marco is all business and he doesn’t take his job of training me lightly. I’m still trying to figure out what I can and can’t do around him, the cruel, sadistic bastard is so unpredictable. One thing is for certain, I want to learn what it means to be a vampire. I don’t want to be ruled by my nature… I want to control it.

Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy, and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 24,800 words in this novelette.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: For those of us enraptured with Nicholas Bella’s paranormal series, Season 2, Book 2 titled Ascension picks up where we left off in Commanded. This installment is about Théoden and his coronation making him Prince of the city. As we learned in the last book, Ara the King will be leaving to take over more properties and will appoint Théoden to rule in his place.

The night is going to be busy with many changes taking place. After the brothers wake and everyone enjoys their share of cream of wheat for breakfast, or better known as cum in the vampire world, Théoden advises them of the new changes taking place. Noel is a little confused as to, how and if, any of these new changes will be affecting him.
Marco is in charge of training Noel and shopping for new clothes. Noel is under the assumption (and we know what happens when you assume) that now that he is embraced he would be an equal brother.

Marco is shredding that theory to pieces. He continues to be the bastard we all know and love except, I don’t think Noel is loving him too much right now. He is quickly learning the ways of the vampires with fighting and feeding since their time for training has been cut short. Marco is going to be a brutal teacher and Noel will have to learn to curb his attitude or pay, dearly.

As midnight rolls around, all the vampires in the kingdom Fanart Ascension Nicholas Bellahave gathered at the King’s command. As the coronation gets underway Théoden takes his rightful place at the throne. As the Prince of the city he has a few decrees of his own he expects everyone to follow. And…if they don’t, there will be hell to pay. But priorities come first…feast and fuck. 

If you love this series for the wild, no holds barred sex, you will get it. If you love this series for the plot, the take no prisoners dialogue, you will get that, too. Nicholas, cleverly, gives us a little of everything including throwing in a little bit of mystery and suspense as they search for Dante, the wolf hybrid. I am really looking forward to see what he brings to the story and especially the House of Théoden. Will the Prince get his wolf-man? My money is on Théoden.

Each installment shows the author’s originality and imagination. Nicholas doesn’t hold back and continues to break the mold with his storytelling. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Noel and Théoden and my curiosity is really peaked for Dante. Up next is Negotiation. Could that mean what I think that means? Heh, I guess I have to wait and see.

Blurb: — Love is sour like a Sicilian lemon. —

The Family is always right.

The Family doesn’t forget.

The Family pays for blood in blood.

Domenico Acerbi grew up in the shade of Sicilian lemon trees ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.
When Seth, the younger son of the Don is kidnapped, it’s Domenico who is sent to get him back. The man he finds though, is not the boy he knew all those years ago. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer.
Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when the Family pulls him right back into its fold after his mother’s death. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate in the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, the venom changes into an aphrodisiac that courses through Seth’s veins.

Domenico knows his life is about to change when he gets the order to train Seth up to the role of future Don. Seth isn’t made for it. He isn’t even made. But a man Domenico knows he would never have to fear might just be someone he’s always needed.

If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself—with the most intoxicating man, he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I was excited to read this book after reading the blurb. Very well written, action packed in some scenes, and intense. After being kidnapped by the Chinese and tortured, Seth is traded for another man and taken home. While there, he learns that, he is to become the next Don.

After tailing Vera one time it seemed that page after page was nothing but Domenico trying teach Seth about being a don. I didn’t see it myself as I didn’t understand how raping(If someone says no and the other person keeps going that’s rape and there were rape scenes several times in this book) him several times, degrading him, continuously putting him down, mocking him and hitting Seth.

From what I could tell, Domenico was jealous of Seth as he felt he would’ve made a better don and it mentions that in the book and he abused the trust that was given to him to hurt Seth because of that. Domenico and Seth are actually half-brothers.

While this story was good, I had problems with some of the so-called intimate scenes. But the rest of the story is quite good. Full of action, drama, mystery, and intense fight scenes. I can’t wait to read what else happens in the next book considering Seth is ordered to marry a woman so that should be interesting to see if he follows through or if something else happens.

Good read.

Blurb: My worst nightmare has come true. I’m one of them now, a monster… the very thing I fought against. If that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve been sired by one of the most powerful, sadistic and calculating vampire Lords in the city, Theoden. It’s just the beginning of my new life, hell, I’m not even one night old as a vampire and already I wish they had decided to kill me instead of turn me. I guess this was my punishment for rebelling against them. They’re clever that way. Theoden has promised to punish me for every offense I’ve made against him and I have no idea what’s in store for me. I do know that it won’t be pleasant. My night of pain and torment is just beginning.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Punishment, Book 2, Chained in Darkness series, by Nicholas Bella, is exactly as the title says. Please read the warning above from the author before you start reading this series. Book 2 starts off where Embraced finished and with Noel recognizing he is in way over his head. The author doesn’t pull any punches with Théoden’s displeasure of Noel when he constantly seems to defy him. I don’t think Noel is doing it on purpose, well…most of the time, I think he is having a hard time grasping the situation he is in. Noel, as a human, was straight with no sexual interest toward another male. Now, as a vampire, he is getting turned on by Theoden, and his handling of him. All of this is new to him and he doesn’t understand why it is happening.

Theoden laid the rules out and went over his dislikes, what he would not tolerate, and his expectations with Noel. He is firm and does not waiver when Noel displeases him. So, what is a Master to do when his pet doesn’t listen? He is punished and quite severely.

Theoden is a sadistic vampire and has no compassion whatsoever. Your heart really breaks for Noel because he has no choice in what is happening. He is whipped, tortured, and humiliated in the worst way. He will face off with Jonah, the backstabbing weasel and the reason Noel is in this situation.nicholas bella fanart 4

Noel’s punishment seems never ending. Theoden promised to punish him for every offense against him and he more than delivers. He puts him through many different forms of torture. The more that is handed out, the more Theoden flourishes. He brandishes the crop with force and speed and does not let up until the air is gone from Noel’s lungs and his throat is raw from screaming.

Will Noel resign to his fate and relinquish all control over to Theoden? I don’t know, but I think the prospect of accepting what is now his new life is coming closer and closer. His punishment is extreme even for the smallest offences. He is having a hard time conforming to the demands and expectations that is required of him but with each new punishment he is quickly learning that giving in is looking better and better.

Honesty and trust are two things Theoden expects and in any normal situation that is not too much to ask. But for Noel, right now – at this moment, giving those two things freely is incomprehensible.

“Excellent. Honesty really is one of the main foundations for building a relationship. Trust is another. You can trust me to take care of you, but also, you can trust me to punish you when you disobey me. You will most likely be in pain from that solution until tomorrow night, deal with it. We have one more punishment to administer.” Theoden walked over to me, stepping over my putrid mess and caressed the top of my head as if he were petting a dog. “I would much rather enjoy the flesh of my boys, my children than torture it. Oh, make no mistake, my little Bitch. I do enjoy torturing, but there is a difference. You see, there’s pain like what you’re experiencing now, and that is necessary…and then there is pain that you will come to enjoy.”

Through his pain and punishment Noel is slowing conforming to the ways of his Master. This form of punishment is something he does not want to live through again. Learning to think before he speaks will certainly work in his favor. However, one of the few things Theoden likes about him is his spirit and smart mouth. And…No, Theoden doesn’t like him at all. If he does, which at this point I’m not sure, he hides it well.

Nicholas Bella fanart 2The more Noel reigns in his attitude, you see small fragments of concern and possibly understanding from Theoden. It makes you think that in time they could be real lovers with pleasure and desire. At the same time, I keep thinking maybe that is what I want to happen so I’m picking up things not really there. Time will tell for sure and I am definitely going to keep reading to see. I must admit that not knowing where this is heading or the direction it will take it just as addictive as the words the author has written. The situation is turbulent at best but that’s part of what makes it so enticing.

Nicolas Bella continues to hold me captive with his words just as Theoden holds Noel with chains. The dialogue is brutal at times to read, yet necessary. The author holds nothing back and makes it quite clear what to expect. The punishment is horrific but now that Noel is a vampire, healing happens immediately. A small consolation that you can’t help but hang onto.

The story line continues to flow seamlessly and the author has outlined this series with each novella. If you take the time to check out the author’s Amazon page or his website, he gives us a glimpse of things to come. Lessons, Book 3, is up next and I can’t help but think that Noel will have many to learn.

I’m honestly looking forward to the time when Noel relinquishes all control over to Theoden, if he does. Will they flourish together or am I just wishful thinking? I can’t answer that yet but I still haven’t given up on Theoden. For some reason, I still feel as though I’m going to love this evil, sadistic bastard. 😛

Blurb: I’ve been betrayed by someone I trusted. Because of him, I was captured by my loathed enemy: The vampires. Right now, the sun is still high in the sky, but I know when it sets, I’m as good as dead. They can’t wait to get their fangs into me. I guess some would say I have it coming. I did raise a lot of hell with my Resistance crew, and I was planning on raising a hell of a lot more at dawn before I was sold out by Jonah. The vampires, werewolves and dragons, have been trying to track me down for months and I’d always been two steps ahead of them.

*Laughs* I guess my number is up. I just hope they make it quick. You see, the vampires in my reality aren’t the romantic lot you read about in books. They don’t sparkle or hang out at high schools with their teenage girlfriends. Hell no, vampires are brutal, calculating, sadistic and bloodthirsty. As a matter of fact, all of the monsters are! That’s how they were able to take over the world so easily and change an entire civilization to suit their needs. Whatever happens, I know it’s not going to be pretty, so I’m preparing myself for the worst. May God help me.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Do you like paranormal? Vampires? Monsters and dragons? What about chains and dungeons? What about putting them together? HOT is what I think. If you like this combination together, you are gonna love Nicholas Bella’s, Chained in Darkness, series. Embraced, Book 1 starts this no/holds/barred series and you know you are going to be in for a thrill.

I had not read the blurb beforehand so I didn’t know what the storyline entailed. The cover is what pulled me in and made me want to read the book. That may appear shallow but a hot, sexy, cover gets me every time. There are going to be several books in this series and each one looks enticing and addicting.
Embraced introduces us to Noel, a human, working with a Resistance crew to extinguish vampires, werewolves, and other monsters of the same. Being double-crossed by one of his own lands him in the clutches of a very evil, sinister, vampire known as Theoden.

Noel tries to stand strong and hang onto his convictions that Vampires are the lowest form of society. The only thing he has in his favor right now is his courage and his mouth that doesn’t know when to shut-up. Unfortunately, for Noel, Theoden is not impressed with him or his attitude.

He laughed and nodded. You’ve got spirit; I like that. It’s so much more fun when I break it. Make no mistake, little boy, you are about to enter a world of pain. I am going to make you suffer for every offense you’ve given me.” His cold gray eyes scanned over my naked body and I began to really feel uncomfortable. They lingered on my dick a little longer than I’d have liked then he gave me eye contact again. “I plan to enjoy your body from sundown to sunrise. You will submit to me. Your place is kneeling at my feet; you’ll soon learn that.”

When the worst thing to happen to Noel, in his mind…happens, he is pissed. Theodon, however, has no regrets with the abuse and treatment Noel is getting. In fact, he is just getting started. He puts Noel through horrendous torment, as well as, making him do unspeakable things to his best friend.

Theodon demands respect. He demands to be called Sir, Master, or My Lord. Any of the three will do but he WILL make Noel OBEY. If he doesn’t, well…I fear Noel will be truly fucked. I don’t think he realizes the danger and the horrifying predicament he has gotten into. At an alarming speed, he is beginning to accept the blood-curdling, chilling, reality of his fate. Whether he accepts defeat or not will be up to Noel. Whether his pain will eventually turn to pleasure, I’m not sure.

What I do know is I will continue reading this series to find out. Nicholas has written an infectious first book in the Chain of Darkness series. The novelette consists of approx. 36 pages but within those pages is a lot of information. I can’t tell yet how bad the situation is going to get. I have a feeling things are just starting to get interesting.

I’m already hooked and can’t wait to start on Punishment, Book 2, to see what lies ahead for Noel. Even though Theodon is a very evil vampire and thrives on handing out pain, I can’t help but feel like I’m going to love him before this over, lol. We’ll see if my prediction holds true. This is not a love story, yet anyway. I don’t know if it will be one as the series continues, but I am more than interested to find out. I thought the author executed the plot perfectly and it flowed seamlessly giving us the introduction to the context and the characters.

If you enjoy this type of reading, don’t get turned off by cringe-worthy dialogue, go over and one-click your copy, and let’s see what happens. I think you will be just as hooked as I am. Congratulations Nicholas, I believe you have created a very addicting series. Punishment, book 2, I have a feeling is going to be quite the trip. I can’t wait.

The Devil's Ride by K.A. Merikan Spotlight, Excerpt & Review!

K.A. Meriken - The Devil's Ride Banner1

Hop on the bitch seat and ride with Tooth, the feared vice president of the Coffin Nails motorcycle club. No one wants to end up in his dentist’s chair, deep underneath the club compound, but his bed? That might be another matter. Lucifer, the bastard son of Tooth’s friend, is used to doing things his way, and being under supervision of the most intimidating man he ever met is the last thing he wants. At least until he understands that there’s no place safer than the mattress at the feet of Tooth’s bed.

I enjoy stories with plenty sexual tension that for one reason or another can’t be resolved right away. That’s the case with The Devil’s Ride. Tooth and Luci can’t, or rather may not be together for a variety of reasons, and with danger lurking right behind the corner, the stakes are getting higher with every chapter. The book will is out December 5th, and if you want to know more, here’s the blurb and an excerpt 🙂 There’s also a pinterest with some inspiration for the book: http://www.pinterest.com/KAMerikan/sex-mayhem-2/

— You don’t fuck with the club president’s son. —

Tooth. Vice President of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club. On a neverending quest for vengeance. The last thing he needs is becoming a permanent babysitter for a male hooker.

Lucifer. Fallen. Lost. Alone.

After a childhood filled with neglect and abuse, followed by his mother’s suicide, Lucifer set out into the world alone. There was nothing for him out there other than taking it one day at a time. As the bastard son of the Coffin Nails club president, Lucifer never got much fatherly love. So when the Nails show up at the strip joint Lucifer works in, the last thing he expects is to be put in the custody of Tooth, the Nails Vice President famous for his gruesome interrogation techniques. The man proves to be the sexiest beast Lucifer has ever met. He’s also older, straight, and an itch Luci can’t ever scratch.

Tooth’s life came to a halt twelve years ago. His lover got brutally murdered, police never found the perpetrators, and all leads were dead ends. To find peace and his own justice, Tooth joined the Coffin Nails, but years on, he’s gotten nowhere with the case, yet still lives on with the burning fire for revenge.

Babysitting a deeply scarred teenager with a talent for disappearing is the last thing on his bucket list. He promised himself to never get attached to someone like him again. To make sure the openly gay boy is safe in the clubhouse, Tooth is stuck keeping an eye on him. The big, blue, attention seeking gaze is drawing Tooth in, but fucking the president’s son is a complete no-go, even when both their feelings go beyond lust.

What Tooth doesn’t know is that Lucifer might hold the key to the closure Tooth so desperately needs.

They’re always happy.

Rory James has worked hard all his life to become a citizen of the idyllic city-state of Beulah. Like every other kid born in the neighboring country of Tophet, he’s heard the stories: No crime or pollution. A house and food for everyone. It’s perfect, and Rory is finally getting a piece of it.

So is Tate Patterson. He’s from Tophet, too, but he’s not a legal immigrant; he snuck in as a thief. A city without crime seems like an easy score, until he crashes into Rory during a getaway and is arrested for assaulting a citizen. Instead of jail, Tate is enrolled in Beulah’s Rehabilitation through Restitution program. By living with and serving his victim for seven years, Tate will learn the human face of his crimes.

If it seems too good to be true, that’s because it is. Tate is fitted with a behavior-modifying chip that leaves him unable to disobey orders—any orders, no matter how dehumanizing. Worse, the chip prevents him from telling Rory, the one man in all of Beulah who might care about him, the truth: in a country without prisons, Tate is locked inside his own mind.

Blurb

Though mortals have been convinced that God cares about their souls, nothing could be further from the truth. He created the world as a gift for his lover, Satan. But when Satan left him, he decided to end what he saw as his most grotesque creation.

Satan and his army of demons are man’s only hope…

The demon Kinzer and his lover, Janka, have been sent by Satan to spy on The Raze, a gang of rogue demons who are working with God to bring about Armageddon. When someone exposes their true allegiances, The Raze clips Kinzer’s wings and murders Janka. Kinzer manages to escape. He tracks down Satan’s allies to warn them about a mole in their midst when he learns that they’ve located the Antichrist—a powerful weapon that could prevent the apocalypse. Now, he’s on a mission to protect the Antichrist and avenge his lover’s death.

Devon McCormack - Clipped _Cover

Excerpt

Dedrus scanned Kinzer’s body, admiring his massive biceps, his brown eyes, and his black waves of hair. Even with the wounds and tears that still tainted his face, he was beautiful. Dedrus wanted to press him back against the cushion, rip off his clothes, and provide him with the ease he deserved. But no! He was just wanting it for himself, and he was pretending that it was to serve Kinzer’s pain.

“I loved him so much.” The words cracked through Kinzer’s lips. His cheeks and forehead shivered. Tears filled his eyes. “I know we had so much time, but it wasn’t enough.”

The sting in Dedrus’s chest intensified. His cheeks flashed red as anger washed over him—anger that he loathed because it made him feel like a terrible, selfish creature.

He set his hand on Kinzer’s back, his palm stroking softly across the blue fabric of his polo. He wanted to say, “You’ll find love again.” He couldn’t, because he knew he’d really be saying, “Please find love in me.” He thought of saying, “Everything will be alright.” No. He couldn’t make that kind of promise. “It’ll take time,” felt appropriate, and yet, as an immortal, Dedrus never perceived time as a generous gift as much as a twisted, agonizing punishment.

“I wish I could think of something right to say about this,” Dedrus said, “but I can’t. I know how much you loved him, and I know how much he loved you, and I can’t imagine how hard this is going to be for you. But I’m here. As your friend. I don’t know if that means much, but I know the feeling of having something so perfect and wonderful torn from you.”

Kinzer’s gaze met his. His eyes were sad.

Does he know what I’m talking about?

“Tell me you’ve found someone,” Kinzer said.

“Of course,” he lied. “I’m just being overdramatic.”

“I figured as much. Considering where you work, I’m sure you get a lot of offers.”

It was true, but not the way Kinzer was suggesting. There were nights when Treycore dragged some pathetic mortal back to ease Dedrus’s pain. Those nights were the loneliest. Though he could bring himself to climax, it was an empty relief that just stirred the cruel memories of those moments filled with so much more.

Dedrus hugged him again. “Let’s get to bed,” he said. “You need some sleep.”

Kinzer nodded.

“We have plenty to sort through tomorrow. You can have my room. I’ll just sleep here.”

Dedrus released him.

Kinzer picked the sword up off his lap and stood. He reached his hand out. “Come on. It won’t be the first time we’ve shared a bed.”

The upward curl of his lip let Dedrus know that Kinzer was more than interested.

Dedrus’s dick swelled. “I don’t think I can.” He wanted Kinzer so bad, and if he put himself in that position, he was sure that he wouldn’t be able to resist making a move—especially if Kinzer initiated something.

“I’d rather not disrespect you like that,” Dedrus said.

Kinzer’s hand fell, bouncing against his jeans. His head drooped.

“Then I guess I’ll see you tomorrow.”

Dedrus smiled. “‘Night, Kinzer.”

Kinzer knelt, offering a light peck on Dedrus’s lips.

Don’t tease me with a taste!

“Up the stairs, first room on the right.”

Kinzer walked up the stairs, headed down the hall, and slipped into Dedrus’s bedroom.

Dedrus had hoped that Kinzer’s exit would provide some relief.

It didn’t.

He ached for him. His thoughts dwelled on Kinzer’s lips tickling his nipples, his gaze appreciating his body, his tongue delighting in his body’s grooves. He wanted to run upstairs and throw his arms around him, to hold him for the night, and tell him that no matter what happened he’d be there for him. He wanted more than that, but he wouldn’t press his friend. He wouldn’t dare cross that line…even if Kinzer insisted.

Spreading his limbs across the couch, he rested his head on a lace pillow at the end and rolled so that he was facing the cushions.

He closed his eyes.

A few moments passed before something pressed against his ass.

He flipped over and hopped to his feet, ready for a fight.

Kinzer stood before him, holding his hands out, as if showing a cop that he was unarmed. “Whoa, cowboy. Chill the fuck out.”

“Sorry.” Every hair on Dedrus’s immortal body stood on end. “You freaked the shit out of me. Did you need something? Another cover? Pillows?”

Kinzer wiggled his thumb behind the waistband in Dedrus’s khakis.

“Yeah. I need something.” He pulled their pelvises together.

His hot breath rushed across Dedrus’s lips, settling in the bristles across his cheeks. The warmth combined with a rush of blood that surged to his face and made him feel like his cheeks were about to catch on fire.

Kinzer pressed his lips against Dedrus’s.

Amidst the creases in Kinzer’s lips, Dedrus felt the smooth, subtle dip where Kinzer’s cut was healing.

He trailed his palm over the rough fabric of Kinzer’s polo. As he reached the smooth flesh of his neck, curly black hairs pricked his fingertips.

Kinzer opened his mouth wide. Dedrus eagerly reciprocated, tilting his head and allowing their lips to seal together. A swirling sensation gathered at the back of his spine and rushed to the crown of his skull.

Guilt nagged at his thoughts. He couldn’t do this. Kinzer didn’t really want him. He was just vulnerable and ached for a physical distraction from his grief. It would be wrong to take advantage while he was still recovering from Janka’s death.

Kinzer’s tongue flicked his.

He wanted Kinzer so bad, but not like that. Pressing his hand against the dip between the bulbous, jagged pecs before him, he broke their sealed kiss.

“What?” Kinzer rested his hands on either of Dedrus’s hips.

“This wouldn’t be right. I don’t want to disrespect you.”

“I know. But I want you to.”

Kinzer wrapped both arms around Dedrus. Spinning them around, he pushed Dedrus back against a painting that hung from the wall.

Kinzer’s eyes glistened with that gleam—the one that was so familiar to Dedrus.

Dedrus couldn’t control himself. His lips returned to their passionate embrace. His fingers found their way under Kinzer’s shirt, feeling about fervently, savoring the dips in his torso.

Review: Kinzer awakes to find himself chained in the mortal world, his wings removed and his lover dead and his only hope is to escape and warn Satan’s allies that a mole has leaked their location to The Raze. Kid lived on the street after running away from an abusive home life and then was taken off the streets and plunged into the world of sex trafficking, the only thing he dreams of now is freedom. The two are thrown together as they make an escape and Kid is thrown into a war between God and Satan.

This is a very dark erotic story that throws good and evil on its head. God wants to destroy the world, a world he created for his lover Satan, because Satan left him and now it is up to Satan and his followers to stop the destruction of humanity. The Raze is a group of Fallen angels who are trying to get back into God’s good graces and to do that they are planning the destruction of humanity. Kinzer is one of the Fallen sent in to spy on the Raze for Satan, but when he and his lover are discovered Kinzer has to turn to the angel who once broke his heart.

This is a great storyline that has good and evil, danger and escapes, blood and violence and pain filled sex, and terrible betrayal. It is darkly erotic and weaves a tale that is dark from the onset. We meet many characters in this story, some good, some evil and some innocent but all of them know pain in one form or the other whether it is physical pain or emotional pain. This isn’t the story to read if you want happy ever afters or a sweet romance, it’s the story to read when you want dark and dangerous, pain and pleasure jumbled together so it teases the dark reaches of your soul.

Following along after Kinzer or Kid we are plunged into a world where they both have tortured souls, the story pulls around both of them leading you into darker territory and you can’t see any happiness on the horizon. This is a really good storyline that is far from finished, there is nothing that has been resolved except Kinzer discovers the truth of his capture and we are plunged further into the depths of evil that The Raze flourish in.  

If you are looking for a blossoming relationship then there are hints of one but it is far from pretty. There was a slight hope of a rekindling romance that started in punishment and violence but the muses deemed it too easy and leave us feeling sore, now there is a glimmer of vengeance on the horizon but stopping The Raze isn’t going to be easy. Now while I did like this story and thought the storyline was good I really did find all the sex to be a bit too violent for my taste, and I mean all the sex, there isn’t one touch that doesn’t lead to pain being mixed in and while I do like a bit of pain tinged sex there was just a bit too much for me to truly enjoy.

I recommend this to those who love dark sex, dark erotica, dark fantasy and violence, betrayal and hopes dashed, a story that pulls you in even as you want to hit the breaks for a bit and a great storyline that is far from over.

Reviewer: Pixie

 

Blurb: A mental illness, a source of weakness, a sign of cowardice… that is how Dante defines love after almost losing his life because of it. And for years, he forcibly taught this lesson to the people he was hired to seduce as a love assassin, a destroyer of relationships. But it seems that even a man with a broken soul is not immune to emotions he has no control over.

 

Dante does not believe in love.

 

Having been betrayed, abandoned, and almost losing everything because of it, he realized that love is merely an illusion, a pathetic excuse cling upon by those too weak and cowardly to live. In the outside, he is a brilliant and successful businessman… but unknown to many, Dante has systematically and professionally destroyed numerous relationships as Agent 13, a love assassin for hire. Young or old, men or women… Dante does everything he can to seduce, deceive, and manipulate his targets to make them accept the cruel truths they are ignoring to see.

 

Yet his newest target, a young man named Vincent, proves to be Dante’s most challenging and dangerous assignment. Because as he tries to accomplish his mission, Dante faces the possibility that his goal of making Vincent fall for him may no longer be motivated by his philosophy as the Love Assassin… but by an emotion he has vowed to never feel again.

Purchase Link: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/415936

Review: Dante was nearly destroyed by love in the past and now he systematically destroys love. Under the guise of Agent13, Love Assassin, he accepts paid assignments to destroy relationships and is proud of his achievements, but his latest assignment might be more than even he can handle because as he gets to know his target, Vincent, the hard shell he has encased his heart in begins to crack.

 

Right, well this is going to be a hard review to write because while I liked the premise of the story and the plot I freaking hated Dante, I mean really hated him, I wanted the ending to be completely different so his mean little heart was ground into dust because the bastard really deserved it and doesn’t deserve a glimpse of happiness. Now let me explain… Dante had his heart broken once, now he makes sure other people feel the same misery he did by destroying relationships for money. Vincent is a delightful college kid who has met the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with, but a jealous friend wants Vincent’s girlfriend and calls the Love Assassin to destroy their relationship. Dante manipulates, deceives and seduces his way into Vincent’s life but falls for Vincent.

 

Now most of you would think that Dante would change his ways and go about romancing Vincent, but oh no not our Dante, no our Dante ups his game and nearly destroys Vincent in his bid to get Vincent all to himself. What a Bastard. Now while I thought Vincent (the sweetheart) deserved true love, Dante deserves to be tossed into the pits of Hell. Poor, poor Vincent has no clue as to what Dante has done and right up till the last sentence I was praying that he would find the weasel out and save himself. I really wanted for Dante to find redemption in his newfound love but he completely ballsed it up by his actions.

 

I did enjoy the story, it was entertaining and really did make me keep reading (in the hopes of Dante getting his comeuppance) and there is some really hot sex and it isn’t all with Vincent either. Yes, I am unhappy that Dante couldn’t change his tune but it was still a good story…. But the editing really needed work, a lot of work, words inserted in the wrong places, words missing and incorrect spellings really pulled me out of my enjoyment of hating Dante and praying Vincent could escape from his web.

 

So in truth I would recommend this to those who love a villainous self-centered MC, a MC who falls into a carefully laid trap, finding love when you least expect it, an MC who doesn’t change for love, and, maybe the beginning of a happy ending?

Reviewer: Eric

Blurb: Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mitzi Szereto’s Wilde Passions of Dorian Gray continues where Wilde left off with the Faustian tale of a man of eternal youth and great physical beauty who lives a life of corruption, decadence and hedonism. The story begins in the bordellos of Jazz-Age Paris, moving to the opium dens of Marrakesh and the alluring anonymity of South America. In his pursuit of sensation and carnal thrills, Dorian’s desires turn increasingly extreme and he leaves behind yet more devastation and death. He ultimately settles in present-day New Orleans, joining with a group of like-minded beings known as The Night People. They inadvertently return to Dorian his humanity when he falls in love with a young woman he rescues from becoming their victim. She will be his redemption, but she will also be his final curse.

Review: This novel is downright amazing. It shows that there is someone out there that will write just like a classic author and show what they can do for the world.

The characters are downright fantastic. And I am sure there will be more to come from her. She writes the erotic versions of said books or at least the erotic continuations. I found the characters three-dimensional. The plot was thick and fantastic.

I know I will certainly be keeping an eye out for more of her novels. Well worth it.
