The Hunger

It’s not that Onyx feels sorry for himself. He just doesn’t know where he fits into their unconventional relationship. Everyone has someone who complements them—everyone except him. He’d hoped Echo would be his saving grace, but he’ll have to reveal more of himself than he’s ready to if he hopes to win his mate’s trust.

Every day Echo watches Onyx struggle, and it breaks his heart. He wants to be everything the warrior needs, but when he discovers Onyx’s secret, it won’t be easy to overcome his fears and place himself at the demon’s mercy. If he hopes to fully commit to his men, though, it’s time to let go of the past.

When the new moon brings with it their fiercest enemy yet, Onyx isn’t worried. His love for Echo far outweighs his fear. Echo is his miracle, and he’d do anything to protect his mate. Anything.

Release date is Saturday, August 13th available for pre-order at

Story Excerpt
Onyx stepped into the living room from the kitchen just as Syx and Myst entered from the hallway. “Hey, have you guys seen Jet or Pax?”

Myst and Syx shared a look that Onyx couldn’t decipher, but it didn’t look good. “Uh, when’s the last time you saw them?” Myst asked. Onyx could tell he was trying for nonchalant, but he didn’t quite pull it off.

“The night of the new moon. We came home, they went to their rooms, and I don’t think I’ve seen them since. I thought they might be hiding out because they were ashamed of what happened. By the looks on your faces, I’d say that’s not the case.”

“We were just coming to find them,” Syx admitted. He pulled at his blond hair and sighed. “This is bad.”

“You think they left?” Onyx ground his teeth together to keep from growling. “How could they just slip out without any of us knowing about it?”

“It’s not like we exactly keep tabs on them like we do Echo,” Myst answered indignantly.

“Keep tabs on who?” Fiero strolled into the room, shoving a chocolate cupcake into his mouth. “Wha’ goin’ on?”

Without looking Fiero’s way, Onyx reached out and smacked the warrior in the back of the head. “Don’t talk with your mouth full.”

Fiero opened his mouth and stuck his tongue out to show off the gooey glob in his mouth. Then he shut his lips and swallowed before smiling roguishly at Onyx. “Yes, Mother.”

Onyx cuffed him in the back of the head again. “Have you seen the shifters?”

Shrugging, Fiero sauntered over to the sofa and plopped down on the cushions, sprawling out as though it was no concern to him. “Nope.”

“What about the bloodsuckers and Craze?” Myst asked slowly. “Have they been around?”

“Haven’t seen ’em in a couple of days,” Fiero answered distractedly while he flipped through the channels on the television.

Onyx tensed. “Gage, Mac, or Sony?”

“Saw Mac this morning,” Syx said immediately. “I haven’t seen Gage or Sony, though. Mac looked like shit, and he didn’t say too much.”

“Son of a bitch,” Onyx growled. “Split up and check the house. We’ll meet back here in five minutes.”

Five minutes later, everyone was back, Syx dragging Mac along behind him. Mac knew something, but he wasn’t talking. He wouldn’t meet Onyx’s eyes either. “Call Craze.”

Syx pulled his cell phone from his pocket and began dialing.

“I’ll get Hex,” Myst offered and turned to jog back up the stairs.

“I’ll go find the others.” Then Fiero disappeared as well.

“Straight to voice mail.” Syx flipped his phone closed and stuffed it back in his pocket. “I really do not have the patience for this shit right now.”

That was saying something considering Syx had to be the most patient and easygoing of them all. “Do you think they left on their own?”

“Well, I sure as hell don’t think someone walked in here and took them without any of us knowing,” Eyce said, following Fiero down the staircase. “I can’t believe Craze wouldn’t tell us, though. He knows how dangerous it is.”

As one, they all turned their eyes to Mac. “You need to tell us what you know,” Onyx said. “Why would you just let Gage go like that?”

“He didn’t tell me he was leaving,” Mac whispered, finally lifting his head to meet Onyx’s gaze. “I woke up, and they were gone.”

“Then why didn’t you tell someone?” Syx asked gently.

“Gage left a note. He said for me to stay in our room, that he’d be back soon, and not to tell anyone.”

“Did it say anything about where he was going?” Hex asked as he and Echo followed Myst into the room.

Mac shook his head. His eyes were red and puffy, glittering with unshed tears. “No. I’m sorry.”

“When did they leave?”

“The night after the new moon. I woke up the next morning, and they were gone.”

That had been the night Onyx and his lovers had gone down to the kappa pound to have a little time alone. It had been a nice night, warmer than usual. They’d fed cucumbers to the kappas, made love under the stars, and just enjoyed spending some uninterrupted time together.

“What about the others?” Syx asked. “They’re all missing.”

Mac shook his head again. “I don’t know. Someone please tell me what’s going on. Are they okay?”

“I don’t think so, Mac.” Onyx wished he had better news for the little man. If Gage had thought to be back before anyone noticed, and he’d yet to return, that could only mean things had not gone as planned.

“You haven’t seen anything?” Fiero asked. He tapped his temple to punctuate how he thought Mac would have seen.

“I’m not a fucking transistor radio!” Mac shouted. His chest heaved, rising and falling in rapid succession. “I can’t just tune into whatever channel I want to see. It doesn’t work that way!”

Fiero licked Eyce clean then stood and lifted the rope from the hook in the ceiling, letting Eyce’s arms fall to rest in front of him. “What now?” he asked Echo. “This is your show, baby. Whatever you want. Just tell us, and we’ll do it.”

His eyes flickered to Hex, and Echo smiled lecherously. “Make him come.”

Two minutes later, Fiero had the spreader removed from Eyce’s ankles, but didn’t remove the binds from his wrist. Eyce moved fluidly, dropping to his knees and encircling Hex’s prick with his lips. Fiero stood behind Hex, running his hands up the demon’s chest and pinching at his nipples. “Gonna fuck you until you scream,” he rumbled to Hex, but loud enough that everyone could hear.

Echo’s sac tightened, his heart hammered, sweat beaded across his skin, and he struggled to drag in air to his lungs. When his lower belly cramped and his dick swelled in his hand, he released the hard flesh, snatched the lube up from the foot of the bed, and moved behind Syx.

“Gotta get you ready, love.” He helped Syx move toward the bed, then pressed between his massive shoulder blades until his mate’s chest rested flat against the mattress. Slicking his fingers, he slid the trembling digits between Syx’s parted cheeks and rubbed circles over the fluttering starburst.

“Just hurry,” Syx panted, rolling his forehead against the comforter on the bed.

Taking him at his word, Echo pushed inside Syx’s silky channel with two fingers, working them in and out quickly until he could add a third. Looking up the bed, Echo smiled at Vapre, his balls tingling at the heated look in the man’s eyes.

When he had Syx’s hole slicked and loosened, he urged the warrior to his feet and nodded in Vapre’s direction. “Ride him, Syx.”

His mate licked his lips and nodded, the sinews of his arms flexing as he pulled against the restraints. Echo touched his lover’s hands where they were bound together just over Syx’s lower back and shook his head. “Just like this. Please.”

“Whatever you want,” Syx whispered and bent to crush his mouth to Echo’s in a toe-curling kiss. They worked together to get Syx on the bed and straddling Vapre’s hips. Echo took Vapre’s weeping cock in hand, stroked the demon a few times, then held him at attention while Syx hovered over the swollen crown.

So slowly, Echo just knew Syx was trying to torture him, the warrior lowered himself over Vapre’s cock, impaling himself until his firm ass nestled against Vapre’s groin. They all three moaned and shuddered, and Echo grabbed the base of his dick to keep from blowing his load right then and there.

“What about you?” Vapre asked seductively when Syx began to rise and lower over him.

“I want to watch.” With that said, Echo rolled off the mattress and backed away, his eyes never leaving the erotic show on the bed. Easing into Fiero’s recently vacated chair, Echo planted his heels on the seat beside his ass and spread his legs wide.

His hand moved over his pulsing length in a blur, and he pushed two still-oiled fingers into his needy hole. His eyes traveled to Hex, eating up the smooth, glistening skin, the rolling of his muscles, and the mingled look of pleasure, pain, and love on his ridiculously handsome face.

Though the biggest and toughest of them all, Hex surrendered beautifully to Fiero and Eyce. There was no pride, no fear, no indication that he didn’t trust them fully with every part of his body.

Fiero’s arms kept a tight hold on Hex’s hips, his fingers digging into the supple flesh as he pounded into Hex’s upturned ass in lightning fast strokes. Every punishing thrust sent Hex’s hips jerking forward, pushing his cock deeper and deeper into Eyce’s willing mouth.

Inserting a third finger into his clenching opening, Echo pumped his fingers, his other hand jerking furiously at his cock as it swelled almost painfully in his tight grip.

His eyes wandered to Onyx next, drinking in the delicious sight of the demon’s long length plunging into Myst’s hot hole. Again, Onyx held the power, but Myst looked more than happy to give it to him. The warrior’s fingers curled around the slats in the back of the chair, and he rocked with Onyx, pushing back against him and groaning loudly.

Finally turning his attention to Syx and Vapre, Echo’s body tensed, while electricity raced down his spine to pool and burn in his aching balls. Syx’s head fell back on his shoulders, his wrists still tied behind his back, and he lifted up on his knees before dropping back down quickly. Vapre moved as much as he could with his ankles secured to the bedposts, arching his back, and pushing his cock further into Syx’s ass.
