Familiar Desires
Blurb:
Alana returns to her hometown to investigate a series of disappearances, but coming home means facing the men who are her wizards and mates. A spell forces her to work alongside the sexy-as-sin brothers and the heat of their ménage flares to life. Her inner shifter wants to emerge and claim her men, but there’s so much unsaid between them.
Kane and Michael have waited years for Alana. Their Familiar fled without explanation and this time she’s not going to slip away. Their shared magic grows more intense with each passing day, but they mean to show her that there’s more than a mystical bond between them. Michael and Kane will use the sizzling desire to lure her closer until she realizes she belongs with them.
Even as Michael, Kane and Alana savor the passion, they must discover who’s behind the kidnappings, before their chance at forever is taken away.

Kane and Michael have waited years for Alana. Their Familiar fled without explanation and this time she’s not going to slip away. Their shared magic grows more intense with each passing day, but they mean to show her that there’s more than a mystical bond between them. Michael and Kane will use the sizzling desire to lure her closer until she realizes she belongs with them.

Even as Michael, Kane and Alana savor the passion, they must discover who’s behind the kidnappings, before their chance at forever is taken away.

 

Excerpt 1:

As they walked out the door, Michael smiled at her. It was a little too smug for her liking. She stopped in the center of the sidewalk and frowned up at him.

“Why do you look so satisfied?” She tilted her head and waited for an answer.

“I was thinking that it wasn’t so bad for a first meal considering that you barely spoke to us the day before. We managed to talk some and get a few of the facts out in the open and now you seem a little more relaxed.” Michael shrugged.

“I’m resigned, I guess you could say, to working with you.” She didn’t try to sweeten the words. One meal with them hadn’t changed her mind even if it had given her plenty to think about. “I’m still leaving once we discover who’s doing this and stop the idiot.”

Alana didn’t know enough about what they wanted to talk with them about her plans to come back. Every time she thought about them as her mates mixed feelings swept over her. Caution warred with desire to be with them, drawing her attention away from everything but her two mates. Part of her wanted nothing more than to claim her mates, but doing that while she was on a mission didn’t seem to be the wisest thing. It would probably be best to wait until they could focus on their relationship. If she was here for any length of time, she would claim them and after that, she wouldn’t walk away from them. They hadn’t sent that letter and what she’d seen was almost definitely a mistaken impression, but still, she had some doubts that they could get along for a week, much less for life, as mates.  She wanted to keep a little distance between them. Now wasn’t the time to discover if they could get along or build a life together. They needed to focus.

“You’re not leaving, Alana. Not without us, not again. We’ve learned from our mistakes.” Michael frowned, but sounded utterly confident.

She glared at him. “I’m not sure it was a mistake to leave even if what I knew at the time was wrong.”

“Alana, the only thing you’re going to be doing in a few weeks is settling into life here. You’ll be curling up with us in front of our fireplace not running away again.” Kane cupped the side of her cheek and his eyes locked with hers in open challenge.

She shook her head. “They’ve made sure that I can’t leave the mountain without you while we’re supposed to work together, but we will discover who is behind it at some point. I don’t think the Council is going to keep me here after we solve these kidnappings.”

Michael grinned. “I don’t think it will be necessary, but don’t place any bets on your assumption. They don’t like things interfering with matings and now that you’re back, getting you settled is one of their highest priorities.”

Alana growled low in her throat. She hadn’t exactly forgotten about the Council’s remarks about the mating, but she had put it out of her mind. It should be her choice.

“Don’t get too upset about it right now. I really don’t think it’s going to come to that.” Kane drew his hand down her back in a long slow sweep that she knew was meant to comfort her.

All it did was make her aware of how much she’d missed being here and how much she loved their touch. She wanted to crawl all over them and explore their bodies. Kane’s proposal of curling up in front of a fire sounded much too good. The only problem was that she knew it wouldn’t stop at cuddles and kisses.

“I may not be raising hell, but I’m still furious.  I haven’t accepted anything.” Alana had to point it out. Everyone seemed to be taking it for granted that their relationship as mates would be sealed. As far as she was concerned, it was still up in the air.

“We know that.” Michael turned and stepped in front of her. “I hope you realize we’ve accepted the connection and all that it entails.”

She looked at him with a frown, wondering what he meant by “all it entails”. They couldn’t have feelings for her. In spite of the intensity of Familiar link, they barely had time learn anything about her during their very short relationship. She didn’t think they even knew of her before she walked up to them that night and it had been years since they saw her.

“Do you really think that only shifters are joined by mating ties? The witch-mate bond might not have solidified for us yet, but it will. The intensity of the desire I feel for you is proof of that, even on top of the strength of the Familiar connection. I’ve never been more tempted into a public display of sex before this. Even standing here, I want to haul you into my arms.” His hands brushed up and down her arms.

She leaned into him. She couldn’t stop herself and noticed that he moved closer as well. His hands tightened and his head lowered. She tilted her head for his kiss. His lips brushed hers softly back and forth. Longing and desire twisted through her.

Alana had been alone for so long. It wasn’t the loneliness that had bothered her so much. She’d missed the connection and thought she’d never feel it again. Her fingers fisted on the sleeves of his shirt and she darted her tongue over his wanting a deeper kiss. The heat of his body lured her closer. Everywhere they touched tingled and sensitized.

His hand cupped the back of her neck. The kiss became claiming and she could feel the hunger in the glide of his other hand down her back. A third hand slid under her shirt and the streak of arousal that shot through her tore her from the haze of desire. It was too intense and felt too right. She drew back, pushing at Michael’s shoulders to gain a little more distance when he was slow to release her.

His hands loosened enough that she could step back. Kane stood to the side, an arrogant smirk curving his lips, but she didn’t miss the arousal in his eyes or scent. The man wanted her just as much as his brother. She’d like to say she backed off because the kinkiness freaked her out, but she was honest enough with herself to admit that it had only been shock.
