I’m welcoming Brita Addams today!

Hey there, Brita! Let’s get started, shall we?

 

Me: What genres do you enjoy reading most?

Brita: I am very into gay fiction at the moment.

 

Why do you write and when did you start?

Brita: I write because it’s who I am, it’s a part of me and I couldn’t NOT do it if I tried. I’ve written most of my life, but only decided to take the publication step about two years ago. I never thought I’d ever be published and I still have to pinch myself to believe it’s all happened.

 

Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

Brita: I have the best family in the world. They are proud of my writing, though none of them will read my racy stuff. I couldn’t ask for more support.

 

Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

Brita: At Gay Lit, a reader came up to me at a book signing, and pointed at the cover flats on the table, saying, “I’ve read this one, and this one and this one.” She was one of those readers I didn’t even know, but she’s read my stuff.

 

Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

Brita: I honestly don’t sacrifice. I have my days sorted in such a way that I write during the day, when my husband is doing his own thing. At five, dinner is ready and we spend the rest of the evening together. When we have date day (usually Friday), I’m there, no doubt.

I plan to continue writing until I can’t. I don’t believe I could stop if I tried.

 

Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

Brita: I had my usual one cup of coffee and a cinnamon raisin bagel with crunchy peanut butter.

 

Me: What’s your favorite position?

Brita: Sitting up with my laptop on my lap.

Me: PERFECT!

I’m welcoming J.S. Wayne today!

Hey there, J.S.! Let’s get started, shall we?

Me: What genres do you enjoy reading most?

J.S.:  My favorite genre to read is urban fantasy. I love the mash-up of fantasy and our reality, and it makes for a nice break from erotic romance! (Not that I have anything against it, but when you write it day in and day out, sometimes you need to go in a completely different direction to relax. Which makes me wonder how OB-GYNs unwind, come to think of it…)

 

Me: Why do you write and when did you start?

J.S.:  I write for the same reason I breathe: Because I simply have no choice. Sooner or later, all the stories and snippets I have floating around in my brain HAVE to come out! I’ve been writing, one way or the other, since I was eleven; but it wasn’t until I was seventeen that I got semi-serious about my craft. When I hit thirty and realized I still had a novel sitting on my hard drive that needed to be finished, I fully committed to writing if only as a hobby. Now, almost four years later, I’m succeeding beyond my wildest expectations, and I can only hope that momentum will keep going.

 

Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

J.S.:  My family has always been very supportive of my writing, even the really, truly crappy writing. But now that they can see the rewards and how hard I have to work to achieve them, they are even more understanding of the crazy schedule I keep and the fifteen to twenty-hour days in front of the computer. My wife, in particular, is wonderful as a sounding board when I just need to take a minute and complain, gripe, and yeah, generally bitch!

 

Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

J.S.:  The best comment I’ve gotten to date came from Mr. K.B. Cutter, speaking about “Angels Would Fall” on Goodreads. Com. He said:

This ends the debate if a het male can write romance.
The answer is YES! Angels Would Fall is a heavenly tale of Soul-bearer Moradiel who suddenly comes in conflict with his angelic lineage and duty when his latest assignment captures his heart. JS Wayne deftly weaves angelic lore and sweet romance to produce a vibrant, sexy story.
My only complaint-it was too short!
More, please!

I couldn’t ask for a better (print) review than that!

 

Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

J.S.:  The sacrifices are absolutely worth it to me, but then I had at least some idea what I was getting myself into the moment I really knuckled down to my writing. There’s nothing better than reading a new review and seeing someone say that you’ve written something that touched them enough to make them want to tell others about it!

As far as continuing career goals, I want to reach the top of the New York Times Bestseller list, hone my craft to the point where people drop what they’re doing and camp out at Barnes and Noble to be the first to get my next book at midnight, and become a self-sustaining author. I knew it was a long road starting out, and I’m not going to stop until I just don’t have another word left in me. Fortunately, I don’t see that day coming anytime soon!

 

Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

J.S.:  Anyone who knows me knows this is a trick question. I don’t eat breakfast! The closest I come is pounding down a two-liter bottle of Mountain Dew and smoking two cigarettes before I’m fit to be in the company of human beings, household pets, small appliances, barnyard animals, or anything with the letter “e” in it!

 

Me: What’s your favorite position?

J.S.:  Any kind that involves a naked woman. Or two. Or three! (I’m easy to get along with J)

Seriously, though, I’ve always found doggy-style to be the most enjoyable for me and my partner. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?

Me: Appreciate the candidness, J. You’re one of a kind, for sure.

Ancient Magic by J.S. Wayne

Noble Romance Timeless Desire Collection

Blurb:

More than two decades have passed since the Hodans invaded the peaceful kingdom of Jurav. In their zeal for conquest, they have mercilessly rent the Juravian national character asunder, starting with the temples of their gods.
Varath’s uncle raised him to one day assume his father’s mantle—command warden of the Temple of Noradi, the most beloved goddess of the Juravian pantheon and the deity of heart, hearth, and the fires which burn in both.
Melody would have been High Priestess to Noradi, and her own family has groomed her with equal care against the day when the Hodan hordes will be expelled and she can assume her rightful place as the most powerful figure in the entire nation . . . and as Varath’s bride.
When Varath departed to serve in the Hodan army, Melody saw it as an unconscionable betrayal. Now Varath has returned to take his father’s place as the sole guardian of a temple where no one dares enter, and he has made overtures to claim the other half of his bequest: Melody herself. But can Melody see past the deceptions and lies his rebellion has forced and learn to love the man who seems to have turned his back on his own people?

I’m welcoming KevaD today!

Hey there, KevaD!

Hi, Bryl.

How courageous of you to allow me some time on your blog.

In celebration of my first appearance… EVER… here, I’ll be giving away a $10.00 gift certificate to a randomly selected commenter.

Now, Readers, after you’re done here, be sure to visit the next blog on the Noble Tour by clicking the tour logo in the sidebar. All commenters get entered into the drawing for a Kindle too!

But most of all, thank you for spending some time with us today, and Bryl and I both hope we leave you with a smile.

 

 

And if you happen to buy a copy of “A Dance with Bogie and Bacall” or “Desire Damned,” you’ll certainly leave me with a smile. https://www.nobleromance.com/Authors/116/KevaD

 

Me: Let’s get started, shall we?  What genres do you enjoy reading most?

KevaD: I don’t limit my reading to any one or two genres. I look for skillfully crafted characters and mesmerizing plots. There are just too many great authors for me to minimize my reading boundaries.

 

Me: Why do you write and when did you start?

KevaD: I used to sit in the yard and tell my tales, but nobody ever stopped to listen, so I decided to write them down in the hope of sharing my stories. The two cops that suggested I quit shouting at passing cars played a part in that decision.

Truth: My first story was in crayon. My mother wrote an episode for a soap opera in the hope of finding work, and I sat on the floor drawing my story while she typed. Neither of our submissions was accepted. I still don’t know why. I used different colored crayons.

 

Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

KevaD: My immediate family has been supportive since day one. They may not always understand what or why I write, but they love me and support my efforts. My mother, now deceased, was never prouder than when my first book was published. I had done what she had given up on decades before. She never read my book as it’s a gay romantic comedy and her religious beliefs couldn’t condone reading it, but she made sure to tell anyone and everyone all about the book. I miss her.

Me: That’s simply the most wonderful way to remember one’s mother. Touching, sir.

Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

KevaD: That her husband stopped the truck they were driving in out of concern for her uncontrollable laughter when she was reading “Out of the Closet.” How can you not appreciate that comment?

 

Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

KevaD: For me the sacrifices aren’t really sacrifices. I love what I do. I’m a storyteller. The only thing I won’t set aside for my craft is my family. I’m fortunate to have a wife who understands that when I’m lost in a story, the fact the house is burning down just makes for another fantastic scene I need to get down before I climb out the window.

My goals? I’m that wandering spinner of tales who will always be searching for one more ear to tell my stories to.

 

Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

KevaD: A glass of chocolate milk (2% with Hershey’s syrup) and two pieces of buttered white toast. Not healthy, but it sure was good.

 

Me: What’s your favorite position?

KevaD: In my chair at the keyboard, a blanket over my legs, and one of the cats on my lap. Unfortunately, Supreme Commander of Kentucky wasn’t available, and Angelina Jolie doesn’t appear to be headed for divorce any time soon.

 

KevaD: Once more, thank you all for dropping by, and I hope we chat again soon.

Me: Thanks for being here today. You are always a pleasure to talk to!

I’m welcoming Sarah Ballance today!

Hey there, Sarah! Let’s get started, shall we?

Me: What genres do you enjoy reading most?

Sarah: Hands down, romantic suspense. I read my first one as a free Kindle download from Amazon, and it was love at first sight. I knew from that moment I had to write romantic suspense, and every time I pick one up I fall in love with the genre all over again—in fact, it’s a guaranteed way to re-energize my writing when I hit the skids. There’s something about adding elements of danger to sexual tension that gives me a delicious inner meltdown.

 

Me: Why do you write and when did you start?

Sarah: I write because it gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I homeschool my six kids. With seven of us in the house the  majority of the day, nothing is ever “done.” There’s always more laundry, more school work, a pile of dishes to wash, and a situation to diffuse. If things dare get boring, something always happens to remedy it in short order. (Two-hundred-fifty pound hog running loose in the yard, anyone?). Writing not only offers an escape from that, but it gives me a solid sense of achievement. But I never wanted to be an author—in fact, I started three years ago because I heard myself tell someone I couldn’t do it. I think I’ve soundly proven myself wrong, LOL.

 

Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

Sarah: Outside of my husband, my family doesn’t know. They know I write because I have quite a few nonfiction credits, but nary a one knows I’ve made the switch to fiction. Even though my writing doesn’t usually cross the line to graphic, I know enough about *some* of the people in my life to know they’d judge, and I don’t want them to take it out on my kids. There’s been an unfortunate trend of that kind of thing, so I’m laying low until the kids are a bit older. In the meantime, I’ve met an amazing community of readers and writers online so I’m not at all lacking in support, and my husband is my biggest fan (not to mention the best research partner EVER!).

 

Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

Sarah: Oh, gosh, it’s hard to narrow this down. Any time a reader takes the time to comment it just blows my mind, and when they go so far as to say my stories have touched them or made them cry, I feel like I’m at the pinnacle of everything I could hope to be as an author.

 

Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

Sarah: As a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom, there’s no lack of quality time with my kids. I spend a lot of one-on-one time with them on a daily basis. (Although not without fail, as some days they go to work with my husband or spend the night with grandparents). That said, the only real sacrifice is “family time” in the evenings because that’s when my husband takes over and I go hide to write. As much as I’d like to have more of those Norman Rockwell moments with the whole gang, the fact is almost everything lands in chaos when you’re dealing with six young children. In the meantime, my husband and I aren’t lacking in quality time together. We certainly know how to make every second count. *grin*

 

Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

Sarah: Aw, man, I’m busted. We baked chocolate chip cookies for breakfast. *hangs head, wipes chocolate from lip*

Me: Chin up, lady. You’ve had the best breakfast yet, imo! Hah! (psst! Pass me one of those.)

 

Me: What’s your favorite position?

Sarah: Um, what? Let’s just say I’ve yet to find out I don’t like, but I’m all about experimenting with my husband until I find one I do! LOL.

About Sarah Ballance

Sarah Ballance author bio: Sarah and her husband of over fourteen years live on the mid-Atlantic coast with their six young children, all of whom are perfectly adorable when they’re asleep.  She often jokes that she writes to be around people who will listen to her, but her characters aren’t much better than her kids.  Fortunately, her husband is quite supportive, having generously offered to help her research “the good parts.”  She’s never had to ask twice.

Seven years of longing comes down to just one night.

Laney Kent returns to Barrier Shoals hoping to reunite with her first love, Bridger. She anticipates his reception might be chilly, but what she doesn’t expect is to become the victim of a deadly obsession … or that this night with Bridger could be her last.

Bridger Jansen tangled a lot of sheets trying to forget about Laney, but his heart knew what the rest of him refused to admit: he could love no one else. He’s determined not to forgive her for leaving him without explanation, but when he fails to protect her from a viscous attack, the person he can’t forgive just might be himself.

I’m welcoming Lucy Felthouse today!

Hey there, Lucy Felthouse! Let’s get started, shall we?

Me: What genres do you enjoy reading most?

Lucy: I love to read erotica, erotic romance, urban fantasy, paranormal stuff, and the occasional chick lit.

 

Me: Why do you write and when did you start?

Lucy: I write because I love it. I’ve written on and off since I was a small child. But I only started writing for publication in 2006, and when I got that first acceptance I got the bug. Now I can’t stop!

 

Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

Lucy: Well some of them know, some of them don’t. There are also some that I suspect do know but just haven’t said anything. But those that do know are very supportive.

 

Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

Lucy: I don’t remember it word for word, but I had a lovely comment recently where someone said that my writing voice really suited my work and that they’d really enjoyed several of my pieces. I’ve always written in the way that comes naturally, and this affirmed that I’m obviously getting it right for some people!

 

Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

Lucy: I combine my writing with the business I run, dividing my time between my tasks as necessary. I work longer hours now I’m self employed than I did before, but I’m much happier. I’m doing something I thoroughly enjoy, as well as dedicating more time to my writing. Since I have done this, I’ve been getting more work published, too. So in my case, I would definitely say the sacrifices are worth it.

 

Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

Lucy: A bowl of Cheerios.

 

Me: What’s your favorite position?

Lucy: Sorry, but as I don’t use a pen name my private life remains firmly private!

Me: (Good girl. Love the classy answer.)

I’m welcoming Jess Anastasi today!

Hey there, Jess! Let’s get started, shall we?

 

What genres do you enjoy reading most? I’ll read a few different genres – sci-fi, paranormal, urban fantasy, historical, romantic suspense. Just depends on what mood I’m in when I go to pick up a book.

 

Why do you write and when did you start? I started writing straight out of high school ten years ago. At the moment I write sci-fi romance, romantic suspense and have a more straight-forward paranormal romance idea I’d like to explore in the near future.

 

Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive? I think my writing is more sensual than erotic and since most romance novels have at least one or two sex scenes per book, I guess most of my family weren’t that surprised that I’ve written my fair share of naked, hot scenes. They’re all supportive of my career being a writer.

 

What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader? I’m going to cheat and talk about the best review I’ve ever gotten instead, the reviewer had this to say:

“Ms. Anastasi has that rare ability to draw a reader to the heart of a character’s emotions and insecurities that so many authors wish they possessed. Her main characters are real, likeable, and easy to care about, and her sex scenes – better described as love scenes – are near poetry, they’re so beautifully and eloquently written.”

Needless to say, I was quite touched by that. I suppose I find it humbling that someone can be so enthusiastic and impressed by something that I’ve written. 

The full review can be read here: http://www.twolipsreviews.com/content/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=6287&Itemid=36

 

Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals? At the moment I’m in the position where most everything else in my life comes before my writing. I write only when everything else has been done. So I’ve never had to make a sacrifice for my writing. My career goal at the moment is to get an agent and have a book published with one of the “big six” New York publishers.

 

What did you eat for breakfast this morning? Same thing I have pretty much every morning – toast, black tea and fruit. I’m a creature of habit.

 

 

 

 

SAVIOR by Jess Anastasi

Noble Romance Publishing Timeless Desire Collection

BLURB:

Cadmiel, the Angel of Destiny, knows better than anyone what a bitch fate can be. Five hundred years ago, the only woman he ever loved was killed, shredding his soul and leaving a void in place of his heart. Now Archangel Michael comes to him with a shocking and forbidden proposal. He wants Cadmiel to travel back in time and save Emilyn. Though Cadmiel wishes beyond all reasoning to do as the archangel asks, messing with time goes against his own beliefs and the very foundations of angel lore. But Michael doesn’t give Cadmiel a choice and thrusts him through time and space, back to 2012.

The first time Emilyn saw the gorgeous man, she was affected on a level she couldn’t comprehend. Cadmiel isn’t like any other guy she’s ever met, and he makes her wish love at first sight were true. But there are forces at work she never dreamed real. In the space of a day, she goes from normal, every-day college student, to a pawn in an apocalyptic war between angels and demons.

Emilyn’s very life is in Cadmiel’s hands. Will he risk the future of the entire universe to save her, or let her die and destroy himself in the process?

I’m welcoming H.C. Brown today!

Hey there, H.C.! Let’s get started, shall we?

Me: I see you’ve written another hot BDSM tale. What genres do you enjoy reading most?

HC: I enjoy audio books. I buy mostly Historical Romance and thrillers. I listen to books because I’m too tired to turn a page by the time I’ve finished writing.

 

Me: Why do you write and when did you start?

HC: Writing is a compulsion; it is something I need to do every day. I have stories lining up, my Muse supplies two or more before the last chapter of the previous story hits paper. I started writing stories—no I told stories from the time I could speak. I had an imaginary monkey at two years old so I guess the stories started around that time. Writing for publication started in 2006

 

Me: Much of your writing is rather erotic, though not all. I’m curious, what your family feels about your writing? Are they supportive?

HC: I write a broad spectrum of genres. All are erotic apart from my YA, which I write under the pen name Pia Moonglow. My daughter will not read any of my books—not one line and she is not supportive of my work at all, in fact, she is the opposite. My sons, daughter-in laws, my in-laws ALL support me fully. So do my friends, which is great.

One of my daughter in–laws, Veronica, is one of my readers. This girl is not afraid to tell me if I am falling off the path of storytelling. You must remember I write M/F, M/F/M and M/M erotic romance some of which also incorporates BDSM.

My husband—my rock—is very secure in his sexuality, and I can and do read every line to him. He keeps me on schedule, makes sure I eat and won’t allow me to work until I drop. He tells me he is proud of me and as any author will tell you, we all need support and a few kind words go a very long way.

 

Me: What’s the most interesting comment you’ve received from a reader?

HC: I quote: I downloaded your latest book from the internet—you know one of those free sites. When are you going to write the next in the series and will it be available for free as well?

Me: Wow. (Sorry to interrupt, but that’s just… Wow.) On one hand it’s great someone likes your writing. On the other, though, it’s a shame sites like that exist and that potential buyers are being drawn to them.

 

Me: Writing can be a lonely venture. Sometimes, sacrifices are required in our lives. Are the sacrifices worth it? What are your continuing career goals?

HC: Lonely? Not for me, I LOVE to be in the story—hell, I dream the story. For me it is escapism at the highest degree. I think having a great critique partner helps a lot too; I need a good kick in the butt sometimes to keep me in the zone.

I continue to be optimistic about my writing career, I think we all want to reach the pinnacle of our chosen career and yes the brass ring looks good from here —reaching it? Well I guess time will tell.

 

Me: What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

HC: Yoghurt

 

Me: And how could I let you go without asking you at least ONE raunchy question? Hmm… What’s your favorite position?

HC: LOL . . . for what Bryl? Let me see . . . ah yes, I sit down on the toilet— oh yeah, and I play left right out in basketball . . . or was that netball?

Sefton’s left with a choice: power or love. Which is the greater desire?

 

(unedited) Excerpt:

At the edge of the great forest, wild fields stretched to the south and to the east, ending as they tapered into a great sea. Though I could see only long grasses to the horizon, rumor spoke of such a place, the place where the Nevsky hunters had found me as a child of four seasons, with not a stitch of clothing or clan to lay claim and the letters IVIS scored across the point where my left collarbone met my shoulder. Few from the nearby village had dared venture out that far since, and those with a will to try had never returned. I dreamt of returning there someday. Though to what, or to whom, or precisely where, I had yet to learn.

“Again, I fear I am losing you, Ivis.” Sefton’s breaths cut cold and hard across the dampness between my shoulders.

Tepid skin graced my lips as I kissed the back of his hand. “Unfortunately, glimpses of my past remain with me to this day, as they should. Should they not?” I asked but got no reply at my back. “I can no more forget them than the sight of my own face in the water.”

But no matter how often I uttered those words, in truth, my past reached no farther than the tip of my nose, for how was it possible a child, no taller than waist high, should remember such places or events . . . or names? It was vain for me to try, but even now, as a young man, I continued to do so. More so, the closer Sefton drew to me for the power, though I knew not this power he claimed to seek . . . but his seeking me out for yet another romp in the forests happened more often than not of late.

“When I am with you, I am alive as never before.” Sefton tugged me against his chest, as he had done each night and many a carefree afternoon for as far back as I could recall. His lips found the juncture at my neck and shoulder, while he fondled me with the most skilled of touches. “You are the very air I breathe.” His words danced across my skin, graceful and confident. With his other hand, he found and teased my entrance, and pushed into me with a whisper, “You are mine, now and for always.”

“Yes.” I barely recognized my own voice under his assault. Yet, I wanted him as totally as he claimed to want me. “Always.”

He stroked my manhood and plowed into me relentlessly, over and again. “Tell me you are mine.”

By the goddess, I wanted to. I wanted nothing more than to accept his invitation to stay forever. But to do so would be a lie.

“Do not speak, my love,” he said, entering me again and again, working himself, faster and faster, until I could not tell where his body ended and mine began. “My love is enough to carry us both.” And he sank his sharp bite into my neck, took from me as much as he gave me elsewhere, and sending me into the bright abyss that only a lover can do.

“Sefton . . . .”

He withdrew his fangs, sealed the tiny wounds with a loving touch of his tongue. My body quivered in his embrace as he brought me back to earth with his sure caress. Yet, I lay there in his arms, fully aware of my plans to leave. How could I tell him that I could not stay, no matter how promising, how tempting . . . how pleasurable his touch.

“I am troubled, not understanding how each time can be better than the last, yet it is a truth I cannot deny,” he said and kissed the top of my head, then my shoulder; his hips pressed firmly to my backside. “Ivis? Promise me. Tell me that every day will be like today only better. Promise to never leave my side.”

His words were at once as a thick plume of smoke, suffocating, no matter how quickly I maneuvered through them. How could he promise me what was not his to give? I removed his less than reassuring arm and pulled myself up to stand. The rocky ground outside our grassy circle of body-warmed foliage stung the soles of my feet. “For the Lady’s sake, I am no Nevsky, and I belong to no one in your villages. To this day, I know not even my family name.” I leaned, one hand clinging, toying with a low-hanging branch. “Until I know who I am, I cannot make such promises. You know that I would die for you if I could.”

I turned and found the ever-present doubt his gaze increasingly held.

“I love you, Sefton Nevsky, like no other. Is knowing that not enough for you?”

For the briefest of seconds, his eyes flashed the color of fresh-spilled blood, and I looked away. He shot to his feet and with a firm grip, carried my face nose to nose with his own in a move that left me panting with fright. Yet I did not retreat, nor show the fear he had instigated and likely craved. Instead, I met his sternness with my own. “You are neither my keeper nor my brother.”

“I am a Nevsky and you—a bastard son found amongst the reeds. Do not push me, lower than low.” He pounded his chest with a knuckled fist. “You will not defy my wishes.”

Against my knotted gut, I stepped around him and retrieved my tunic and breeches. Oxen more stubborn, I had never witnessed in my supposed twenty-some years—I kept that knowledge loosely, also, for I had as much recollection of my true age as I had of the day I was born. Despite Sefton’s stance and his curses to the contrary, I dressed, slipping my tunic over my head. “Your proclaimed ‘two years’ on me makes you no wiser than I, though, with each passing day, you do resemble more and more a donkey’s behind.”

His reaction came swift and sure as he backed me against the nearest stone birch; Sefton tightened his grasp on my tunic with a shove surely meant to meld his fist to my chest. My still-naked buttocks encountered rough bark. His gaze remained locked with mine. “One day”—he wiped the spittle from his bottom lip—”one day I will make you know how infuriating a man you can be, Ivis Bogdanov.”

Sefton’s mouth covered mine, leaving me forgotten moments better used for breathing, but I could no more deny his needs for all the talk in the forest. He pulled away, as breathless as I. “Curse our lives,” he said, grimacing in obvious disgust. “Were I not born the ass that I am—were you . . . had we met under different circumstances—”

“But we have not. That is the hand the Fates have dealt us.”

Sefton pulled me into his arms. “Do not do this. No good can come of your curiosity. Are you so unhappy that I cannot expect you to share this life we have?”

“Life?” I wrenched free, backed out of his embrace. “You call this a life? I roam your fathers’ countryside by day and your castle by night as if in search of something, though I know not what.”

The look Sefton bore frustrated me further.

“You do not understand. I am a man. Do you not see that I have no need to be by your side both day and night? Can you not see your constant concern is smothering? I turn a corner; you are there. I close my eyes only to open them to your face. Is it I you do not trust, or is it yourself?”

Sefton’s steely eyes flared to deep crimson, and in that flash of color, he stood a hair’s breadth before me. “Rue the day I found you among the marshes bordering the eastern fields.” His nostrils flared as he turned away. “I need you beside me, or you would not remain . . . .” His stance turned aloof, and his stare grew cold. “You are no one special. No one would have you but I; no man is as accoutered as I to keep a—a man, such as yourself.”

Heat pooled in my chest, and a chill, the likes of which I had never experienced, consumed my shaking limbs. “A burden you claim, then I fear a burden I shall become.”

“Do not speak the words, Bogdanov”—he bore his elongated teeth in anger, a rarity in my presence—”or feel my wrath!”

In a move unseen, he was upon me, the sting of his bite upon my flesh, and I hardened instantly, despite my struggle.

“Damn you, son of Nevsky.”

But my words came on a fleeting breath, for my body could not mask my desire, and I pressed into his touch, his bite . . . his embrace, wanting him near with the same ferocity I wanted him to stay away, the same longing I had felt the first time we had coupled. And he reciprocated, penetrating my flesh deeper as he rolled his hips, revealing his desire, even as he assuaged his anger with the blood drawn from my shoulder.

“Damn you.”

He pulled away, withdrawing his fangs. His gaze, obscured by a haze of lust, met mine, and it was my blood that trickled from his lips as he said, “Too late.”

His expression told of his pain—decades, centuries, an eternity—for how long, I had no knowledge. So much had passed between us, years of growing—more, I’d grown from boy to man; Sefton had remained as youthful and handsome as ever—still, I knew few details of his life or circumstance. Uneasiness swallowed me whole with one look into his eyes. In spite of his protests to the contrary, I could never be what he desired. It hurt to love him as I did, but it hurt more to know not who I was, where I had come from, to whom I might belong.

“You belong with me, Ivis.” His voice was but a whisper as he wiped the blood from his chin.

“Get out of my head.”

“Your own thoughts betray you, for freely they gave themselves to me. I had no need to pry my way in.”

“You are an insatiable and arrogant man.”

“I’m no more a man than you—” He stopped abruptly and turned his back to me.

“What is this you once again allude to?” He removed himself from my reach. No man could keep one such as me . . . . Had he not meant riches, for admittedly, I had wants, and Sefton seemed always to have the need to fulfill each and every one of them? Before my next breath, Sefton had dressed.

“Son of Nevsky, what are you hiding from—?” But before I could finish my question, he was gone. And hence, so was I.
