Taurus – Ambitious, Honorable, Devoted

Scorched Ember by Julia Mills

The Guardians of the Zodiac are back, along with the Dragon Guard of the Sea. These mighty dragons, presumed dead for centuries, arise from watery exile to save mankind and reunite their clans.

The world is in danger…

The fabric of the Universe is unraveling…

Magic has been corrupted, tainted, polluted by a malicious force with designs on world domination…

White witches are turning to the dark arts, while the malevolent practitioners are trying to conjure Hell on Earth.

Armed with the pure Earthen magic of her mother and the throwing stars given to her by Astraea, the Star Maiden—Goddess of Innocence and Purity—Roxane, Guardian of Taurus, has answered Poseidon’s call. Crossing the Crystal Gateway and infiltrating a coven of Elemental Witches devoted to destroying the forces of evil was easy…then she met Ladon and the piece of her soul she’d thought lost to the Fates was suddenly within her grasp. But he’s a distraction she doesn’t need. Worse than that, he’s hiding something…and secrets are just as good as a knife to the back in a war where nothing is as it seems.

Hiding in plain sight, Ladon has gotten very good at playing human. He’s spent nearly two centuries protecting not only the pure white magic entrusted to him by the Elders of his clan, but also his dragon, the last of the Fire Water Clan…then came Roxane. She calls to not only the man, but also his beast. Their attraction is immediate, soul-deep, and life-changing.

She’s unlike anyone he’s ever known – beautiful, powerful…dangerous in ways he has yet to discover. There is no denying the pull she has on him, no getting away from the call of Fate that Ladon had lost all those decades ago. But Roxane has secrets, and in a world gone mad…secrets can be deadly.

With the fate of the world resting squarely on their shoulders, can this Guardian and her dragon save mankind and find their happily ever after?

Not even the gods know what will happen next…

The answer is written in the stars…

Excerpt – Spicy

Throwing caution to the wind, the demi-goddess made her way to the end of the pier and breathed a sigh of relief as the Dragon looked up and smiled. “Mind if I have a seat?” She asked, surprised to find her voice a little breathy and even lower than usual.Patting the spot next to him, Ladon nodded, “Please. Join me.”

No sooner had Roxane taken her seat than the Prince removed his leather jacket and placed it over her shoulders. “It’s pretty chilly out here tonight. I’d hate for you to catch a cold while trying to save the world.”

Floating on a cloud of Ladon’s warm, fiery scent, Roxane slowly turned her head to thank him for his thoughtfulness and explain that she was immune from sickness, only to find his lips upon hers. Gone was the calm, soft-spoken Prince, replaced by a demanding, Alpha male, who wanted the demi-goddess as much as she wanted him.

Helpless but to go where he led, Roxane gasped as Ladon’s tongue teased along the seam of her lips before sliding along hers as she completely opened to him. Unable to think, only feel, the demi-goddess moaned low in her throat as from one heartbeat to the next, she went from sitting on the dock to straddling the Prince’s muscular thighs.

He dominated her mouth like he was claiming her heart, kissing her until their desire was a roaring fire, encompassing all she’d ever known. His fingers dug into her hips as he pulled her to him, pushing his denim-covered erection against her aroused clit, making flashes of light burst behind her closed eyelids like fireworks in the night sky.

Arousal thickened in her blood, growing by leaps and bounds with each swipe of his tongue. Roxane whimpered at his bold moves as he delved into her, fanning the flames of desire with his drugging moves and fiery passion.

Her panties were soaked as he continued to rock his hips between her legs, teasing her clit with his with the tip of his cock, making it throb with the overwhelming need to come. Shoving her hands into his hair, Roxane scratched his scalp in her bid to hold Ladon to her, to deepen their connection, to be one with the only man who’d ever completed her – body, mind and soul.

Lost to their passion, the Guardian gasped as she tore her lips from her Prince’s, moaning his name as his hand slipped between their bodies, under the waistband of her jeans and teased the curls at the top of her mound. Rolling her hips, trying to force his nimble fingers where she needed them most, Roxane cried out when Ladon simultaneously slid two fingers into her grasping pussy as his thumb pressed against the tip of her throbbing clit.

“Open your eyes, Roxane,” Ladon commanded, his harsh, demanding tone only excited both woman and beasts more.

Snapping her gaze to his, fighting to keep her eyes open, the demi-goddess watched as the gold flecks normally sparkling in the depths of his hypnotically hazel eyes swirled and caught fire at the precise moment that he bent the tips of his fingers buried deep within her and teased the incredibly sensitive bundle of nerves at the top of her channel. Tightening the hold she had on his hair as she rode his fingers, Roxane struggled to breathe as Ladon pushed her towards her climax with wild abandon.

Slamming his lips to hers, the Prince took her clit between his thumb and forefinger and while mimicking the in and out motion of his fingers in her pussy with his tongue in her mouth, squeezed her throbbing nub until Roxane was screaming her release into his mouth. Over and over she came, opening not only her body but also her mind completely to the Water Dragon as he wrung every last orgasm from her body.

Slowing his motion and softening his kiss, Ladon gently pulled his fingers from her still quivering pussy before ending their kiss and letting Roxane collapse against his chest. The demi-goddess listened to his pounding heart as she lay boneless and completely spent, but still enjoying the tender way he ran his fingers through her hair.

Arching her back, Roxane inhaled sharply as the tip of Ladon’s fully erect cock bumped the inside of her thigh. Sitting up, she gave her Water Dragon a sly smile as she reached between their bodies just as he had, rubbing his erection through the soft, worn denim of his jeans.

Fire once again danced in his eyes as Ladon growled, “Oh my Gods, Roxane. Don’t ever stop.”

Happy to return the favor, reveling in the feelings growing between them, the bond she felt connecting them as only True Mates can be connected, Roxane purred, “Your wish is…” A second before a very familiar voice interrupted with a chuckled, “And I thought Dad sent you here to save the world, not for a booty call with a Prince.”

Pulling her hand from Ladon’s lap, the Guardian of Taurus let her forehead fall to his chest and groaned, “Gods be damned. My sister has the worst timing.”

Taurus – Ambitious, Honorable, Devoted

The Dragon, the Witch, and the Wedding by Amy Lee Burgess

Tauria dragons possess short tempers, and their ability to hold a grudge is legendary. Tauria witches are as stubborn as they are proud. Their decades-long feud has angered the king who decrees that one witch must marry one dragon and live with him on Zodiac Mountain. Together, they must repair the broken relationship between coven and clan.

Unlike the other witches, Marley has always been able to see the dragons’ side as well as the witches’. She volunteers to be the dragon’s bride believing she can bring peace by persuading everyone to meet in the middle.

Donovan is a typical dragon – arrogant, short of temper, and gorgeous as hell. He is fiercely loyal to his clan, and his idea of peace is for the witches to admit they are totally in the wrong.

Marriage becomes a tense battleground. Neither witch nor dragon is willing to give an inch. Their weapon of choice – fiery passion that threatens to engulf them body and soul.

“Go ahead,” he urged. “Say my name as much as you like. No one but me can hear you. I want you call me by my name. Say it again.”
Sucking in my breath, I gathered my courage. “Donovan.”
He closed his eyes, as if savoring the sound.
“Do you think the king would be pissed if he knew how pleased I was at my punishment?” he asked, opening his eyes. They gleamed like dark emeralds in the firelight.
I touched the jewel between my breasts.
“Are you really pleased? You’re not just saying that?”
“When I heard I would be marrying the witch named Marley, my heart sang,” Donovan told me.
“Fate has treated me well. I can only hope you feel the same. And if you don’t,” he lowered his lids, his voice sending sultry shivers down my spine, “I hope I can make you feel the same.”
“Kiss me,” I said, wanting to feel his mouth against mine again. Only this time we were alone, not on display in the village green.
I closed my eyes as he moved close to me and pressed his lips to mine. He groaned when I opened my mouth, allowing him deepen the kiss.
“Little witch,” he said, pushing me gently onto my back so he could straddle me. “Oh, little witch. I want to make this night memorable for you.” He slid one hand beneath my skirt and pushed it up so he could run his palm along my quivering thigh.
I kissed him frantically, digging my fingers into his hair. The fire snapped behind the grate, and I gasped as he stroked my pussy.
“I want to taste you,” he whispered against my mouth. “Prove to you that this handsome man is not lazy when it comes to pleasuring his wife.”
I helped him pull up my skirts, exposing me. He settled between my thighs, darting his tongue rapidly in and out of my wet slit.
I couldn’t see him above the white froth of my wedding gown bunched up between us, but I could feel him. He rubbed his stubbly cheeks against my thighs, and I gritted my teeth as he slid two fingers inside me.
“Donovan.” I bucked beneath his mouth and fingers as he coaxed me higher and higher. “Oh, Donovan! I can’t! I can’t stand this!”
He paused for a moment to torture me even more, before returning to his sweet work.
I cried out as I came, writhing beneath his expert touch, wanting more. Wanting him.
He moved up my body, his face appearing above my gown, his eyes glowing in the firelight. At some point he’d removed his clothes, and the hot press of his cock against my wet pussy made us both groan.
“Marley,” he whispered, lowering his mouth to mine as he thrust inside me.
I wrapped my legs around his waist, allowing him deeper access, and clutched at his shoulders as he increased our pace.
“Marley,” he said again, his eyes wide. I slid my hands down his sweat-slicked back and cupped his ass as he slowed his thrusts.
The world hazed over as we moved together in unison, finding the secret pleasure spots of each other’s bodies and committing them to memory.
My orgasm rolled over my body, as I moaned his name over and over. He stiffened against me as he came, his gaze locked to mine as we thrashed out the last of our lust.
“Welcome home, little witch.” Donovan brushed a kiss across my mouth before rolling off me, and settling with a long sigh, on his back.
“Don’t get too cocky, Mr. Dragon,” I said, straddling him so I could stare him in the face. “You’re not done welcoming me home by a long shot.”
A grin spread across his face. “I love a woman who’s bossy in bed. I ever tell you that?”
“Shut up and kiss me,” I ordered.
“I think I’m going to like this marriage thing,” he said, kissing me back.

Excerpt – Spicy

“Why are these staves empty?” She stroked a fingertip over the five parallel lines over his abs. Smooth skin… ripped muscles. She slithered off his lap, knelt on the floor before him, and rested her arms on his thighs. She leaned, hyperaware of the swollen hump in the crotch of his pants, just inches below her chin, and dipped the tip of her tongue into his navel.He hissed and managed a ragged answer. “I’m still alive. The song isn’t complete yet. The bare staff over my heart is reserved for my mate… when I find her.”Hannah hesitated and pulled back a notch. She wondered why his response hit her like high-speed impact with a wall. The thought of his hypothetical mate provoked her to jealousy and anger… and she didn’t like that at all.

“That’s such a perfect answer. It has to be a line.”

Silver sat with his head bowed, his long hair obscuring his face, the only discernable motion his breathing. “I don’t need cheesy lines to score.”

No, he wouldn’t need them, would he? Unexpected envy stabbed at her for the faceless, nameless women who’d come before her. So stupid when all she sought from him was a quickie. There was no reason at all for the stabbing resentment she harbored for every paramour who’d come before her. Jealously was an irrational bitch. Hannah wanted to tease him until he went mad with sexual frustration, obliterating any thought of past lovers from his mind.

Driven by the urgency of her own need, she reached for his fly. She latched onto either side and yanked hard, forcefully separating the row of buttons. The violent action provoked a growl from Silver, a primal warning that emanated deep in his chest. It sent shivers through her already overwrought body. She wasn’t such a fool to believe that his willingness to submit to her connoted weakness. It was a sign of strength, a display of his innate security.

Silver wore snug black boxers which were promisingly tented in front. Hannah hooked both his pants and underwear with her fingers. Obligingly, he lifted his hips while she tugged both garments to mid-thigh, freeing his erection which jutted forth from the dark curls at the base.

She sank to her haunches and took a moment to appraise him. Unsurprisingly, she supposed, his uncut penis was every bit as pretty as the rest of him. He had good length and solid girth, although the end was a hammerhead, thicker than the rest of his shaft. She anticipated that going in, he’d cleave a pussy through. She creamed just thinking about it, a gush of heat and wetness between her thighs.

His cock seemed to stretch toward her like an offered hand. “Hello,” said Mr. Dick, “I’m eager to make your acquaintance.”

A spontaneous giggle escaped Hannah. She sank to her knees and bent her head so the loose strands of her hair teased his skin. She puckered her lips and blew a warm gust of breath over his cockhead. In response, his member twitched. His male scent was rich and earthy, a wild woodland that summoned her home.

“Having a woman laugh at the first sight of your dick is unnerving as all fuck,” Silver said in a hoarse voice. Restless, he stirred and lifted one of his legs just enough to brush the underside of her chin in a not-so-subtle hint.

Excerpt

“Aramond, please, remove your coat…and your shirt, so I can tend to your injuries.” Her words were tight, strained.

He did as she asked and slid the coat from his shoulders.

Her gaze flicked from his face to his chest as he gripped the edge of his T-shirt between his hands.

Primal and raw, his cat wanted to preen for her, and he forced himself to maintain his composure. With a quick tug, he ripped the material over his head. His skin screamed in protest, pain flickering over the open wounds, but it was worth it to see the look of appreciation in her eyes.

The shirt slipped to the floor. She motioned for him to sit.

He wrapped his fingers around the back of a chair and yanked. The feet scraped across the wood, echoing around the room. With a quick snap of his wrist, he flipped the chair around and straddled the seat, placing his arms along the chair’s back.

A quick intake of breath.

He peered over his shoulder.

Her brow furrowed with a worried crease. A rawness coated the back of his throat. If only she would care for him, but he was as unworthy of her now and he was then.

She took clipped strides, rushing to place her assortment of tools on the table. The tray clanked against the wood. She stood so close he could reach out and touch her.

His fingers twitched again, and he curled them into a fist.

“These are much worse than I imagined. How are you…” She pursed her lips, and he had the sudden urge to kiss them, feel the plump flesh, warm and inviting against his.

His gaze flicked to the mark on her throat. Faded, the twin scars were barely visible. He couldn’t stop the words as they tumbled from his mouth. “What happened to Dradon?”

She stiffened and her fingers tracked to the spot. “He’s dead.” She didn’t elaborate, but grabbed several cotton balls and a plastic bottle filled with a white liquid.

“That much I can discern on my own. How did he die—” He inhaled.

Gently, she pressed the wet cotton ball against his back. The astringent stung, burning along the wounds.

“The medicine will work quickly. Along with your Lemurian blood, you’ll be fine.” Her fingers, deft and nimble, worked their magic, stroking the cotton over his skin in long strokes. Despite the pain, her touch burned like fire, lighting him up on a whole different level. His inner cat purred, and he couldn’t stop the rumble in his chest.

She stilled, her hand on the small of his back. Before he could think about his actions, he flipped around in the chair, pulling her on top of him, her legs straddling his.

She squealed, and her hands landed on his chest.

The plastic bottle crashed against the floor, the fluid spilling from the spout.

He wrapped one arm around her waist. With his free hand, he brushed a few stray strands of hair away from her ear and toyed with the studs along her lobe. “Time away from you seems like an eternity, but I remember your touch like it was yesterday.”

“This person we’re looking for is dangerous.” He rubbed his thumb against his bottom lip.

He did have fantastic lips.

“Someone besides the murderer?” Jessica asked.

His shirt collar was bent slightly. She curled her fingers into her palms to stop herself from smoothing it out.

“Could be a different person. Or the two could be the same. I doubt the two investigations are unrelated.”

“How can I help?” Jessica tilted her head up, up, up to meet his gaze.

“You are to do absolutely nothing with this investigation. You are to do exactly as I tell you so you can say safe.”

“And out of the way.” Jessica fumed. How typical of him.

“This is not the time to play detective. I’m running the investigation with the vamp. Someone will accompany you to breakfast then you may go to your lab until you’re retrieved for dinner.”

She’d forgotten how Carson could be such an arrogant ass.

“So you’re not my jailor?” Jessica headed for the door. Part of her wanted to flee the room.

Part of her wanted to climb that shifter like a monkey tree.

“It’s a sacrifice believe me.” Carson’s voice followed her. “I remember your preference for handcuffs.”
