Treasured by a Tiger (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 14)
Felicity Heaton
Despised by his tiger shifter pride as an abomination, Grey has ventured far from home, deep into the bowels of Hell in search of answers about the machinations of Archangel, the mortal hunter organisation who held his twin captive. With no knowledge of the realm, and little skill with the local languages, he quickly finds himself at a dead end—until he crosses paths with a beautiful hellcat female who rouses his darkest most dangerous instincts.

Lyra has been a fool, falling for the charms of a male whose only desire was to make a fast buck by selling her. Shackled and collared, her strength muted by magic, she awaits her time on the stage at a black-market auction, but before it can come, all hell breaks loose and she seizes a chance to escape—and runs straight into a majestic warrior who steals her breath away and tempts her like no other as he battles alone to free everyone.

When Lyra offers her services as a translator to repay Grey for saving her, will he be strong enough to resist the needs she awakens in him and spare himself the pain of her inevitable rejection when she discovers the truth about him? And when the powerful male in charge of the slave ring starts a bloody hunt for Lyra, can she escape another collar and find the courage to trust the tiger who is capturing her heart?

treasuredbyatiger-excerpt

Grey was beginning to think it had been a mistake to let his emotions get the better of him.

Sure, the fight to free the captives held in the procession had been satisfying, and easy.

The few demons that had been leading the slaves across the valley hadn’t been difficult to take down in his tiger form, mostly because the first two hadn’t seen him coming. The third had tried to run, and the fourth had been too dumbstruck to put up much of a fight.

When they had all breathed their last, he had shifted back and freed the captives, a sense of satisfaction rolling through him.

Until he had stood alone in the valley, and had grown aware of the lights in the distance, of the fact that others were there, locked in chains and fitted with collars.

About to be sold to the highest bidder.

A black rage had come over him, swift to consume him.

He had shifted in a heartbeat, and had been sprinting across the valley in the next, determined to reach the black market and put an end to what was happening.

The moment he had seen the stage and the bastards filling the space in front of it, waving numbers and shouting bids, the moment he had scented the fear of at least a dozen people, all of them different species, he had lost it.

Two guards had met death at his claws and fangs.

A third had hit him hard enough to drive him back out of his tiger form.

Which was never a problem.

He could fight in both forms, had honed his skills over the three centuries he had been alive, all so he could protect his charge, Maya, and his family.

So he could protect the damned pride too, he supposed, although they didn’t particularly deserve it.

Or want it.

He pushed thoughts of the pride out of his head as he grappled with a fae male of some kind. He whipped his head forwards, cracking the male’s skull with his brow, and the male grunted and staggered backwards, clutching his head. Grey didn’t give him a chance to escape, or gather himself. He launched at the male, grabbed his head in both hands, and twisted hard, snapping his neck.

The male dropped lifeless to the floor.

Most of the bastards who had been bidding on the auction had fled, but a few had remained, obviously hungry to make sure they got whatever poor soul they had purchased. One of them was frantically arguing with the demon Grey had figured was in charge, a burly male who stood on the stage, protected by three guards and showing zero inclination to join the fight.

Was he so sure that Grey would meet his end before he reached him?

There were only a handful of enemies between him and the male now.

A sudden surge of people rushing towards him had him growling and hunkering down, preparing for them to attack him. He frowned as they ran straight past him, some of them not stopping while others joined the fight.

Shackles clanked and chains jangled as they attacked the guards that had been on his to-do list.

The slaves.

Someone had freed them.

He looked off to his right, towards the cages he had spotted earlier, and his gaze caught on something as a roar sounded.

Something incredible.

Blue flames lit the darkness around the sleek black-panther-like feline as it faced off against two demons, shimmering over the entire length of its body.

A chill chased over his skin as he stared.

A hellcat.

He had read about them, but he had never seen one.

The closest he had come to seeing one was Maya, and she only had the black nails of a hellcat when she lost her temper. Their mother had told him once that he had the eyes of a hellcat, pure cerulean, like precious gems, and it was the smattering of hellcat blood that remained in him from his ancestor cross-breeding with one that had given him those eyes.

Their mother had been a bit of a romantic.

It wasn’t whatever trace of hellcat genes he had that had given him blue eyes.

It was his deformity.

The hellcat edged backwards, away from the two demons with their damned batons.

No.

The hellcat limped backwards.

Grey growled and stalked towards the males, fury boiling in his veins, a need to kill them both for sinking so low as to attack an injured hellcat.

A female.

He caught her scent as he neared, and gods, his anger flared hotter in response, his claws emerging and his fangs growing long. A need to shift swept through him, but fear held it back, a feeling he didn’t understand as he set his sights on the smaller of the males.

The pain that had forced him out of his tiger form had ceased. He could shift. He was stronger as a tiger.

His gaze flicked to the hellcat.

Cold chased through him at the thought of her seeing him in his feline form.

Abomination.

He growled, and poured all the anger, the rage, he felt on hearing that word chanting in his head in the collective voice of his pride, into his attack. He closed the distance between him and the demon in a heartbeat, had his claws against the bastard’s throat in the next second, and had sliced it open on the third.

The male dropped hard as his life flowed out of him, revealing the hellcat.

Her eyes met his.

Bright pools of tropical ocean that he wanted to drown in.

He growled, scooped up the baton the demon had dropped, and hurled himself at the second male. The demon blocked his first blow, but the second connected, striking the male hard across his wrist.

Grey struck again, slamming the electric baton into the male’s chest point first.

The demon grunted and shuddered as the charge unleashed, pouring into him.

Out of the corner of Grey’s eye, the hellcat began inching away from him, dragging her rear left leg.

He couldn’t blame her for trying to escape when she saw the chance.

Shackles circled her front legs.

She had been a captive of these males, might have been sold if Grey’s temper hadn’t got the better of him.

Or the warlock hadn’t given him this location as a place to find mortals.

Grey had been an idiot to think the male had meant Archangel soldiers were here.

The male had presumed he wanted a mortal, and had pointed him in the direction of where to get his hands on one. A slave auction. It wouldn’t surprise him if the warlock had been on his way to buy a few poor souls for himself. He didn’t want to think about what a warlock might want with slaves.

The demon struck him across his right cheek, bringing him back to the fight and reminding him that now wasn’t the time to think about things.

It was the time to act.

Grey snarled through his fangs and brutally shoved his baton under the demon’s chin and pressed the button to unleash another blast of electricity.

It was enough to send the demon down and have him shaking uncontrollably.

Grey hit him again, a blast right into his temple, and held it there until the bastard stopped shaking and went still.

He picked up the male’s baton and twirled them both in his hands.

That left just the son of a bitch in charge of this disgusting auction.

Grey growled when he realised the male was gone.

The whole arena had emptied.

Leaving him alone with the hellcat.

He advanced towards her.

She turned and hissed at him, ears flattening against her head, fangs enormous. Her bright blue eyes warned him away, her flames growing larger, more violent as they danced over her black fur.

They stuttered a second later and she slumped, but was quick to pick herself back up and shake it off.

He dropped the batons to the black dirt, aware that it had been a mistake to keep hold of them when approaching her.

They had made her view him as a threat too.

The pain had her locked deep in her animal side, and that animal associated the batons with pain, and with her enemies, people out to hurt her.

Grey held his hands up at his sides. “I can feel you’re afraid.”

Which freaked him out a little.

He could sense Maya and Talon’s feelings, and Byron’s if he bothered to pay any attention to him, but he had always found it hard to get a bead on what others outside of his bloodline were feeling.

She was the first.

Was it just because she was broadcasting her emotions loud and clear to him because her animal was in control, her human mind suppressed by the instinct to survive and the need to shield it from the horror of what had been happening to her?

It had to be, because he didn’t want to think about it being anything other than that.

He risked a step closer.

She hissed again and swiped at him, right paw cutting through the air, leaving a trail of blue fire in its wake.

Her flames died down, covering only her paws and the tips of her twin tails, and fluttering around her mouth.

Because she was injured?

He glanced at her hind left leg, taking his eyes off hers for only a second.

In that split-second, she lunged forwards and slashed at him again, but still fell short. She wanted to fight him, feared him as much as she had feared the demons who had beaten her.

“I’m not like them,” he whispered and kept his hands held high, hoping she would see he was hardly a threat to her now. He was naked and unarmed. “I’m not going to hurt you… I just want to get you to safety. We can’t stay here.”

She growled and backed off, placing more distance between them, showing him that she wanted to escape this place as much as he did.

Probably more.

But with her injury, it was slow going. She made it barely three metres in the minute he watched her, and had to keep stopping, her flames dying down each time.

“You’re going to pass out if you keep pushing yourself.”

She looked back at him and hissed.

Grey sighed. “I get it. You’re angry, afraid… but I swear… I am not going to hurt you. I saved you, didn’t I? Why would I do that if I was going to hurt you?”

The look she gave him somehow answered him loud and clear.

Because he wanted to put another collar on her.

“Look… I’m not into that sort of thing. I came here to free everyone, not enslave them. I’m not like that.” He slowly kept pace with her as she began inching forwards again, stopping every time she did, keeping the distance between them steady. Voices sounded in the distance. She lifted her head and growled, and there was so much pain in it, so much fear in her, that he snapped. “I tried doing this the nice way.”

She growled as he closed the gap between them and he ignored her, let her smack him in the legs and try to drive him away.

He felt like a bastard as her fear increased, panic mingling with it in her scent.

She honestly viewed him as a threat.

He bent, grabbed her around her waist, and scooped her up into his arms. She hissed and wriggled, and he grunted as he tried to keep hold of her, which was a damned feat given her size. She was far larger than a tiger, and heavy with muscle that she was doing her damnedest to use against him.

“I can’t leave you to fend for yourself and you know people are coming… so you can bite and scratch me all you want, but I’m getting you out of here before they arrive.”

She could clearly understand him, but she took the invitation he had issued and raked claws over his shoulders as he twisted her in his arms. He slung her over his shoulder and held her hard over her back, but gently around her hips, aware of her injuries. As much as she obviously wanted to hurt him judging by the war she waged on his back with her claws, leaving fiery trails across his skin and filling the air with the scent of his own blood, he didn’t want to hurt her.

He swiftly carried her away from the battleground, heading back towards the mountain range in a direct line. She finally stopped trying to fight him when he reached its base and began to ascend, going still in his arms as he picked his way around boulders and up steep inclines.

For a moment, he feared she had passed out, but her low growls and occasional hisses, and the feelings he could sense in her said that she was still lucid.

Still angry.

He skirted the base of the mountain, his senses fixed as far and wide as he could manage, charting everything.

The people he had sensed drifted into the distance.

Good.

He dropped back down into the valley when he smelled his own scent, and found his backpack and clothes. The moment he put the hellcat down, she growled and tried to get away.

He sighed.

“Really?” He donned his trousers, boots and t-shirt, and then slipped his backpack on over his shoulders.

She got all of a couple of metres from him before he had her back in his arms.

She didn’t fight him this time.

He carefully carried her in his arms, which should have been the weirdest thing, cradling a huge feline like a baby, but he had done it once or twice with Maya when she had been younger.

Only this cat was infinitely more dangerous than Maya had ever been.

Blue eyes steadily watched him, pinned to his face as he carried her.

If she wanted, she could easily bite his head off in this position.

He just hoped she got the message that he trusted her.

And she started to trust him in return.

He looked down at her, strange warmth flooding his chest.

That sense of connection returned.

Deeper than before.

He dragged his eyes away from her, fixed them ahead and crushed the feelings she had brought to life inside him.

Whatever she was to him, it wasn’t going to happen.

If life had taught him anything, it had taught him this.

No one could ever love him.

Blog Tour ~ Diversity ~ by ~ Faith Starr

Title: Diversity
Series: Hilltops #3
Author: Faith Starr
Genre: Contemporary, Lite-BDSM, Suspense
Release Date: July 17, 2017 
Publisher: Loose ID
Purchase: Loose ID

Mitch Dorian and his two brothers successfully run Hilltops–a club catering to individuals who enjoy exploring their sexuality–but his brothers must now focus their attention on running Dorian Publishing, the family business. This leaves Mitch with the sole responsibility of operating the club. He feels an overwhelming need to prove his capability.

Allie Emerson is an English teacher and dance instructor who’s adjusting to riding solo after ending a long-term relationship. Mitch is her longtime secret crush but because her best friend Emily is dating Derek Dorian, Mitch’s brother, she needs to keep her passion to herself. When Allie discovers Mitch shares her affections, the sparks fly.

They keep their relationship under wraps for fear of causing animosity in the family. Mitch questions his relationship with Allie, concerned the distraction will adversely affect his ability to successfully manage the club. Allie does not want her heart broken again.

With tough love and helpful insight from friends and family, Mitch learns a valuable lesson–sharing his heart not only enhances his potential, but it actually improves it. Because love has a way of doing that to a person.


I’ll be right out. Don’t get into trouble.” He pointed at me for added emphasis before strutting off to another room, leaving me all by my lonesome.

“Me? Never,” I said to myself with a giggle.

I took the opportunity to be nosy and strolled around the apartment, except for the room he went into because I’d almost bet it was his bedroom; therefore, restricted for my own benefit. At least for now.

I found a closed door and paused briefly in front of it. I debated whether to open it or not.

“What the hell?” I asked myself and went for it, pushing it open.

My gut instinct told me he had his own version of the Red Room of Pain, causing me to take a deep breath before flicking on the light, hesitantly peeking inside.

Holy crap, I couldn’t have been more wrong. A huge drum set rested in the middle of the insulated room. Posters of rock bands covered the walls, good bands too, classic Tom Petty, Phil Collins, and Aerosmith.

“I thought I told you not to get into trouble,” his deep voice somewhat reprimanded.

Shit! Shit! Shit!

I swung around, holding my hands up in surrender. “I swear I didn’t touch anything.”

He chuckled and entered the room. “Do you always walk around people’s apartments and open closed doors?”

He stopped in front of me, and my breath picked up speed. He had changed out of his suit, instead sporting gray joggers with an Abercrombie T-shirt. Gosh, he killed me. I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to turn my head away from him, the sight too powerful and glorious for the human eye.

“Not usually, but tonight the notion kind of grabbed me, and I went with it.” I moved away from him, studying the room with my eyes, not my hands.

“Are there any other kinds of notions you have going on in that mind of yours you want to go with?”

I turned to face him. “Wouldn’t you like to know?” I teased, placing my hands on my hips. “So Mitch Dorian plays the drums. That’s fucking hot.” The heat in my words matched my sentiments exactly, my eyes opening wide with desire.

“Really?” He took two steps in my direction. “Do you like drummers?”

“Let me think about it for a minute.” I scratched my head while taking in his drum kit. “Hmm, let me see; you sporting a tank top with those big guns of yours slamming the shit out of these drums? Nah, not interested.” I waved him off with a look of disinterest, my superb acting skills on full display.

“That’s too bad.” He took another two steps my way. “You’d be impressed by what I can do with those sticks.”

I nodded in interest, trying not to reveal too much excitement, when impressed by him and what he could do with those sticks put it mildly. “Perhaps you could show me sometime.”

“Anytime, babe, as long as you promise to dance while I play. You didn’t tell me you were a regular on Dancing with the Stars.”

Aw, he had gone and made me blush. “And you conveniently left out the part about you being a rock god.”

Two small steps forward and now he stood within touching distance, our eyes fixed on one another the entire time.

“Tell me to stop and I will, Allie. All you have to do is say the word.”

I had no coherent thought. There were only three things filling up the space inside my brain—me, him, and him being naked.

“The word,” I mumbled, too dazed and blown away to ask the specifics about the word in question.

“You’re quite the comedian.”

And with that, his lips were on mine.

I always figured Mitch to be the type to come in aggressively, but instead, he came in slow and deliberate, the kiss soft and sweet. I had to remind myself to breathe.

His tongue eased its way inside my mouth without a tinge of hesitation. I certainly wasn’t going to argue.

Yummy, he had the Whole Mouth Clean Listerine taste going on too. Cheater. So unfair.

I reached my hands up, my fingers running through his dirty-blond, wavy hair. And what hair he had! Like hair from an old Pert commercial, whereas in my version it had Mitch pumping in and out of me instead of him jumping up and down on a trampoline with his sexy bouncin’ and behavin’ hair. He could be a walking billboard for commercial products.

I moaned into his mouth, lost in his touch and in my thoughts about him.

He one-upped my gesture by snaking his arms around my back, lowering his hands down to my ass, cupping it so they could get personally acquainted.

Fuck. I hadn’t been touched by a man in months. My body literally begged for more, even though my mind told me to stop. Besides, in all the time Jonathan and I were together, he had never once touched me with the kind of craving and raw passion Mitch possessed. Our kiss was one of longing, almost as if Mitch was the Jack to my Rose, both of us alone with only the great expanse of blue sea out in front of us and warm, salty air filling our lungs.

I moaned again. Where was Celine Dion when I so desperately needed her? That would’ve been the icing on the cake to the fantasy playing in my mind.

I felt a sudden sensation of weightlessness in my head and body, almost dizzying. This man had me delirious, almost disoriented. No man had ever caused such an overwhelming reaction from a simple kiss. My body broke out into a cold sweat.

I pulled myself away from him in a panic, breaking the connection between our tongues. “Oh my God! I think I’m going to be sick! Where’s the bathroom?”

When she’s not managing her husband’s medical practice or taking care of her three kids, Faith Starr loves writing erotic romance fiction.

Faith is passionate about putting herself into the minds of her characters, giving them a life of their own with all of the emotions that go along with it. She is head over heels in love with each and every alpha male she creates and the confident women who steal their hearts.

Rock Me
by Carly Phillips
Publication Date: September 19th

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Bodyguard Bad Boys … Sexy, Hot, and oh so protective!

A pop star in danger.

Her reluctant bodyguard.

A past they can’t deny.

Summer Michelle is on the verge of ultimate fame.

Ben Hollander has sworn off mixing business with pleasure.

But keeping his hands off of the sexy songstress is easier said than done and once the threat is neutralized, will she choose fame over love?

Excerpt:

Her heart was pounding hard in her chest, the thunderous live applause still echoing around her and the rush of success and pride in overcoming what could have been a disaster, had her soaring.

“Did you see that?” she asked Ben. “My earpiece went dead and I nailed it anyway!”

“You totally did,” he said, a huge grin on his face that let her know he understood what a huge moment this was.

She squealed in excitement and threw her arms around his neck, needing to share her exhilaration. Their gazes met and locked, the air around them suddenly crackling with tension and sexual need even Ben couldn’t deny.

She knew what she wanted, knew there was no better time to go about it. Her gaze fell to his mouth and she pressed her lips against his. He jerked in surprise then groaned, thrust his hand beneath her hair, holding her against him as he slid his tongue past the seam of her lips and kissed her back.

He might think he wanted to keep his distance but his body was demanding they get close, his mouth gliding back and forth over hers, razor stubble bristling her cheeks in a sweet burn and his tongue delved deep. Against her stomach, she felt the hard press of his erection, causing desire to sweep over her in waves.

No wonder she hadn’t found a guy she wanted to keep in her life. No one could live up to Ben.

He kissed like he wanted to possess her.

Own her.

Keep her.

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years.

I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.

Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work.

He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart.

It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.

Excerpt

“Neither of us has been in a serious relationship in years.”

“That doesn’t mean anything.” I stand and slide my feet into the Jimmy Choos. “You haven’t exactly been waiting around, have you?”

“Damn right I haven’t been waiting around.” He doesn’t get up, but his firm hold on my wrist stops me from walking away. “I’m not Rhyson.”

I look down at him, frowning my confusion.

“What do you mean?”

“Remember when Kai put Rhyson in the friend zone?”
Of course I do. For a long time, my sister-in-law Kai denied the attraction between her and Rhyson.

“Yeah, so?”

“When Kai wasn’t checking for Rhys, I assumed he had to be sleeping with other girls.” Grip shrugs. “I mean, he and Kai were just friends. But, nope. He said he only wanted Kai and didn’t sleep with anyone else.”

“Then you’re right.” I tug at my wrist, but he holds on tight. “You’re definitely not Rhyson.”

“It was months, Bristol. She shut him out for months. Not years.”

“I’m not shutting you out.” I release a tired breath. “I’m living my life, and you’re living yours.”

“Right.” He nods and turns his mouth down at the corners. “So, if you won’t be with me, then I’ll fuck whoever the hell I want. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do about it.”

For a moment, our eyes tangle in the dimness. His words sink into my flesh like briars. Every word out of his mouth only proves that I’m right to get out of here. That I’m right not to give in. If I ever gave him a chance and he fucked around on me . . . I’ve seen what that looks like. It looks like a woman as strong as my mother reduced to pathetic, teary drunkenness.

“It’s none of my business.” I shift my eyes away from him and to the glittering city skyline just beyond the rooftop.

“It’s none of your business until you say it is.”

I force myself to look back.

“Don’t hold your breath, Grip.” I say my next words with deliberation. “I mean, it’s not like I’m sitting around saving it, either.”

He pulls me forward, and I press my hand to the hardness of his chest so I don’t fall into him. My knee supports me, pressed against his on the couch.

“Are you poking me?” One strong hand wraps around the back of my thigh, anger marking his expression. “Do you want to know if it bothers me when you fuck other guys?”

I just stare at him unblinkingly. He presses my leg, urging me forward until I’m fully on the couch, fully on him, one knee on either side of his legs, facing him. Straddling him.

“It makes me want to set the world on fire.” His words come softly, but the truth roars in his eyes. “To think of you with them.”
