Excerpt – Spicy

“I wasn’t done. I haven’t been under a rock for the past decade since werewolves came out into the open. Finn may have convinced me we’d be great together, but you don’t need to convince me. I know in my heart you’ll protect me and love me.”

“Of course, I will.” He stormed up to her and lifted his mat into his arms. “I never want to see you hurt ever again. It killed me every time I had to come to your house and see bruises on your skin.” The thought of her still bruised scalp gave him pause. “Maybe we should wait till tomorrow when you’ve healed.”

“No way.” She grabbed the top of his shirt and pulled making a tear in the center. “I’m not waiting. If you’re ready, then I’m ready.” She leaned in and kissed him.

He couldn’t hold back any longer, so he carried her up the stairs and headed for his bed.

“Once your head is fully healed, I’ll take you rough like you deserve.” He carefully set her on the bed. “For now, take off your clothes.”

She grabbed the hem of her shirt and took it off then shimmed out of her pants. Her pink cotton panties slipped off her hips and fell into the pile of clothes.

“I like the no bra style.” He groaned and… find out more today!

Excerpt – Spicy

“I’m fine now.” She started to stand but fell back to the cot.
H“Apparently not. Gertie assigned another witch to me for tomorrow. She said you need to rest. Let me help you to your room.”
It shouldn’t upset her. After all Gertie was looking out for her. Yet another witch being with Grant did upset her. Why? Was it a good idea to look closely at her feelings? It was clear it was jealousy. She didn’t want another witch or any female at his side for work or especially play.
There was even more to it than that. She could protect him. That she’d proven more than once. What if he was harmed because she wasn’t there? What if he liked the other witch better than her? It would drive her crazy to lose him in any way. Inside her she felt extra energy roaming around waiting to be harnessed. All she had to do was get it before tomorrow and she’d be the one to go with Grant.
She held out her hand and he took it. A tingle ran through her starting where their hands touched. He pulled her up and held her upright lending her his strength. A few seconds later she felt stable. “Thank you.”
“I’ll keep a hold of you just to be sure.” Grant stated.
It might not be a good idea, but she let him hold her as he led her out the door. She liked being held by Grant, probably too much. Maybe she just should throw caution to the wind? It was clear he wanted something from her, and it was more than just one night.
He got her to her room, and he followed her in. The look in his eyes told her he planned to seduce her, and she was going to allow it. When the door closed, she turned to him and Grant pulled her into his embrace. He was kissing her until she gave in. “I liked that.” She whispered.
Need made him continued to kiss her mouth both taking and giving pleasure. He pulled back slightly, sliding his mouth down her neck. Her breath was going nuts as was her heart beat. “Do you want me now?” He asked. All she could do was nod.
He picked her up taking her to her bed. Standing her in front of him, he stripped his clothes off slowly. Goddess, the male was sexy as hell! Now he began to remove hers. He lifted her naked body and placed her on the bed, then he joined her there. The scent of her need nearly drove him mad with desire.
Leaning on an arm, Grant palmed one breast as his mouth sucked on the nipple of the other breast. She whimpered and it drove him wild. Goddess, she was a responsive female. He continued to suck and lightly nibble on her nipples until she asked for more. He did exactly that moving down further, so he could give her more.
The scent of needy female filled him as his tongue licked her from her gate to her clit. Her delightful flavor melted on his tongue then he found her opening impaling it. His tongue fucked her generously as his fingers circled her clit. He sensed her climax nearing. When she came, he wanted it to be on his cock. Moving up her body, he got into a good position with his cock poised at her entrance. He pushed in and she pushed back against him to speed things up.
That’s when he felt the barrier that broke and her pain as she made a sharp sound. “You should have told me.” He observed.
“Just keep going!” She demanded.
“You’re so fucking tight!” He observed. Grant pushed in again and she made a strangling sound and she felt a rush of her honey covering his cock.
He pulled back then moved in again going forward slowly as perspiration covered his forehead. Grant seemed to be controlling himself using his will power because she was just pressing him so hard. Once he was fully inside again, he rested a second enjoying the pleasure of being inside his female. He started to slide in and out, speeding up faster and faster until he was slamming into her. Her channel squeezed him so hard he struggled to pull free. A tingle slid down his back, he refused to come before she did. She came with a scream of pure pleasure.
His wolf howled and he saw flashing lights behind his eye lids. Never had that happened to him before. His body jerked and bucked even though he was sure there was nothing left to shoot. Now that she’d finally given into his sexual needs, surely that would change their relationship. He’d never felt so wonderful or full of love in his life. Finally, he was at peace with his female and ready to take life on. Pulling her on top of his chest, she was asleep right away. He followed moments later.

CZS – Treasure by CJ Matthew

Welcome to Celtic Zodiac Shifters

A series of books with a mystic astrological spin on love. From Birch to Elder… discover all-new tales of paranormal romance and urban fantasy.Celtic Zodiac Shifters features New York Times, USA Today, and other bestselling authors. Each month expect new releases based upon the thirteen Irish astrology signs.


Treasure by CJ Matthew

Sea Dragon shifter Liam Rudraige was up to his eyeballs managing Muirdris’s shipping business at the Port of Dublin, plus the Port of Cork expansion, and all the while dodging stalker salesmen.

Until the boss called…and Liam was forced to swim the fastest undersea route to the Druid’s magical island sanctuary.

NY public relations guru, Heather Daniels, despises belligerent sales reps. Seriously, what could be worse?

Transferring to Ireland to discover she’s expected to clean up after her stalker-zilla predecessor. The aggressive jerk left a real mess. And the first executive listed on her make-amends-inventory, Liam Rudraige, has disappeared.

Heather rose to her feet, straightening the stack of slick Wells & Hancock PR folders on the conference table in front of her. “No,” she said in her quiet, firm voice. “That’s unacceptable. I can’t believe you want me to follow in my predecessor’s footsteps. I was told fixing Lester’s mess is the reason you brought me on. Moved me all the way here to Cork from New York.”

“You come highly recommended,” her new supervisor, Jeff, murmured.

“Not as a sledgehammer. My specialty is building long-term relationships with our clients. The shipping company executives you’ve been targeting are disgusted by Lester’s take-no-prisoners-attitude and his pitbull behavior. You have to understand each shipping executive sees their role in developing the port in Cork differently. They do want to participate, but at varying levels. Most of them already have ongoing obligations to their ancillary businesses in Dublin.”

“What makes you such an expert?” Jeff asked. When he raised his chin like that, he looked just like his namesake uncle and half owner of the Manhattan based firm, Mr. Jeffrey Wells. She’d also carefully considered that complication before accepting this assignment.

“You’ve only been here a few days,” Jeff pointed out the obvious.

I did all my homework before I accepted this promotion,” she said. “We need to—”

“Your first assignment,” Jeff-the-jerk spoke over her, “is to figure out which contracts with W&H are missing signatures and follow up immediately on those.”

She stayed calm. “There wasn’t much in Lester’s desk and his office PC was wiped clean. Do you have his business phone, or a diary or any of his call records?”

“No. But as I just said, we need to identify the unsigned contracts to know who to go after.”

The nephew was a nightmare. Instead of listening, he was mansplaining her job priorities to her? “Before we go after anyone, we need to figure out how badly Lester harassed these people already.”

“It doesn’t matter,” Jeff insisted. “Most of the contracts are coming up on their due dates. The one that jumps out is with Muirdris Shipping.” Jeff waved a sheaf of legal-length papers in the air. ” Nothing has been signed by Mr. Rudraige and several are about to expire. You need to track him down. Get his signature now. Today.”

Not without a current assessment of Mr. Rudraige’s attitude toward W&H. “Do you know how the Muirdris manager feels—”

“Mr. Liam Rudraige doesn’t have feelings.” The way Jeff said the word made it sound dirty. “He’s a Director of Muirdris Shipping. And one of the very first and most vocal supporters of the Port of Cork expansion. Unless he recently had a complete change of heart, he should have signed all of these contracts with our company a year ago and be ready and willing to renew today.”

Trying to reason with Jeff was futile. The man wasn’t listening. His default response was to argue with her. Better appear to go along until she could figure out Rudraige’s state of mind toward their PR firm on her own. “I’ll do my best to contact the Muirdris director today and—”

“Your best? Like hell, just get his damn signature,” Jeff finished her sentence on his own terms.
