Pink Triangle by Lea Bronsen (@leabronsen) #WWII #WW2 #Historical #Manlove #MM #Gay #Erotic #Romance

Pink TriangleBlurb:

Fearing and desiring the enemy… Sometimes you can’t choose who you love.

Oslo, April 1945

Paul is a handsome, free-spirited Norwegian in the prime of his life, but he doesn’t fit the German occupant ideology simply because he’s gay. And so, when the Gestapo catches him for producing illegal propaganda, he’s tortured and threatened to be sent to a German concentration camp with a pink triangle sewn on his shirt, the symbol for homosexuals.

It will take great courage and mind-blowing circumstances of luck, as the Führer commits suicide and the end of the war seems nearer by the day, for Paul to avoid his death transport to Germany.

And it will take the growing attraction of the Gestapo commander himself to regain his full freedom—and capture his heart.

Excerpt

A couple hours later, when the sun stood high and bright in the sky, the sound of horseshoes came from the garden. Paul had dozed in the hay, enveloped by the soft jacket lining and lulled by happy bird songs and the rustling of leaves outside, but the commander’s return had him sit up against the wall.

The horse’s hairy muzzle appeared in the crack before the big animal pushed the door open and stepped into the shed.

Heimlich sat straight in the saddle, bare-chested, slim but muscular in all the right places, his uniform folded across his lap. Paul tried not to gape at the sight. With ease and grace, the commander dismounted and hung his clothes on hooks on the wall. Drops of sweat pearled on his forehead and temple and rolled down his firm chest and abdomen, making his skin shine. So, so very sexy. He took off his hat, uncovering his dark blond hair slick with sweat—but it only accentuated the sexiness.

He turned to Paul and caught him staring. “What are you smiling at?”

Oops.

Paul straightened and regretted having let himself be carried away. “I wasn’t smiling.”

“Yes, you were. You think I’m not aware I look like an office rat? You need to rub it in?”

“What are you talking about?”

“I know very well I could use more muscle, and that I need to strengthen my stomach.” He tapped his six-pack, which was perfect in Paul’s world.

“Well, that hasn’t crossed my mind.”

An understatement.

“Really?” The commander raised a brow. “Do you honestly like what you see?”

Holy fuck, what a question…

Uncertain whether the man realized what he’d just said, Paul waited a bit before he asked, voice low, “Are you honestly asking a homosexual if he likes your body?”

The commander blinked slowly. “When you put it like that…” With a goofy smile, he turned to gaze out of the shed and shook his head.

Paul allowed him a moment to recoup. He was tempted to tease, but didn’t.

When the commander returned to Paul, he pointed at him. “Forget I said that. I didn’t mean it like that.”

Yeah, I’m likely to forget…

They held each other’s looks for a while, the commander inscrutable.

“Listen,” Paul said, emboldened by the awkward situation. “I’m going to be very frank with you. I hate you with all of my heart—”

No reaction.

“—But when you parade around me like that,” he pointed at the man’s naked torso, “you make it difficult for me to…”

“To what?”

To not like you.

Eileen Griffin’s Inspiration for Claiming Ayden

Thanks for hosting me on your blog today 🙂

I’ve been asked what my inspiration was when I was writing “Claiming Ayden”. I have a weakness for Alpha males and absolutely love the wolf sub-culture. They’re fascinating animals that are extremely territorial about their packs, travel vast distances to find food and shelter to ensure the health of their packs, but are also one of the few animals that mate for life. When I was developing my story and characters, I kept envisioning the scene from Last of the Mohicans when Hawkeye (played by Daniel Day-Lewis) was racing to rescue his love, Cora. The intensity with which he traverses the distance and landscape to save her has stuck with me all these years – for me, it was a pivotal scene in the movie. It made me wonder how a wolf/human shifter would react to his beloved, in this case Ayden, was captured by his Alpha’s enemy. The story basically wrote itself from there. It was such an awesome and novel experience to create a world and story for them, that I hope to one day continue Ayden and Thane’s story in future novellas 🙂

“Claiming Ayden” by Eileen Griffin

Genre: Erotic Romance, M/M, Paranormal, Shifter

Length: Anthology Length Short Story

Release Date: January 24, 2014

Publisher: Evernight Publishing

Anthology Title: Alpha’s Claim: Manlove Edition

Strength. Power. Domination. 

The shifters in our Alpha’s Claim: Manlove Edition anthology have one thing in common—they won’t take “no” for an answer. Whether they lead packs of their own, or whether they walk a solitary path, these alphas won’t let anyone stop them from claiming their men.

Lose yourself in these ten sinfully delicious love stories. After all, who could deny an Alpha’s claim?

 

Blurb:

Thane, Alpha of his pack of shifter wolves, is running out of time. Drake, Alpha of a rival pack and Thane’s enemy, has stolen into Thane’s camp to capture three of his youngest members, including his intended mate Ayden.

Drake needs numbers to increase the size of his pack and he does not care how he accomplishes that feat. Will Drake succeed and not only increase the number of his pack but eliminate Thane as a rival Alpha and enemy to his pack? Or will Thane’s need for his mate and desire to have him at any cost be the tipping point that will help him overthrow Drake and claim Ayden once and for all?

 

Excerpt from “Claiming Ayden”

Thane looked down at Ayden’s white blond hair and felt his chest tighten. He lifted his hand and settled it in the pup’s hair. He had to hold back a moan when he felt a tremor go through the pup’s body the moment his fingers brushed along Ayden’s scalp. Thane tightened his fingers in Ayden’s hair and pulled the younger man’s face to his. Crystal blue eyes stared back at him. Nowhere in them was there any fear or pain. Instead, Thane saw the same expression of surety and desire Ayden had worn when he’d wandered into their camp almost two and a half years ago.

“Thank you for the food, pup. But that’s not the sustenance I need tonight.”

The tremor Thane had felt turned into a shudder as Ayden placed the food and water on the ground. Then in a show of true submission he gently leaned his head into the grasp Thane had on his hair, leaving his neck exposed.

Thane’s cock filled with blood and hardened against his body. His eyes roamed over the battered body of his true mate to check for damage that would prevent him from taking the action he should have completed before they had begun their journey to the winter lands. Roane approached Thane’s side and slid the leather thong from his neck, pressing it into his leader’s free hand before backing away.

Love’s Rescue from Morgan King (@EroticWritings)

I’m delighted to welcome Morgan King, a fellow contributor to the Alpha’s Claim: Manlove Edition anthology. She’s here to dish a little dirt on her story, Love’s Rescue.

 

Love’s Rescue Blurb: One night while attending a party hosted by Jon Liselle, newly appointed second in command of the Human Alliance Party, Jakob hears a song that no one else can. With stealth and cunning Jakob makes his way into the hidden depths of Jon’s home, only to discover a creature being kept captive. She is a mermaid and he is her song mate. Together they must both utilise their shifter powers to escape, but will Nerissa stay with him or will she want to go home once she is free? Jakob wants to claim Nerissa forever but fears rescuing her from one cage only to trap her with his love. Nerissa must choose between complete freedom and going home, or love and the destiny of having a mate.

It all began with a piece of flash fiction, the word was opulent, the word limit two hundred and this flew straight into my head:

The tank was disgustingly opulent. It consumed one wall, floor to ceiling and was decorated with swirling images of shells, coral and sea life all gilded in pearl. The vast array of shimmering colors distracted his eyes momentarily, but nothing could disguise the purpose of the chamber, it was a cage and its captive swam towards the reinforced glass wall, her eyes open wide reciprocating his stare. Her tail swished angrily back and forth, the color of those moving scales so obviously matching the delicate pigment staining the glass barrier.

One word originating from somewhere outside of himself burst through his head “Help!”

He was looking at a mermaid and he could hear her voice as if she had spoken to him.

It resonated right to the depths of his heart.

Other Info about me:

Well I like to see myself as an infinitely patient single mother and charity manager by day and reader and writer of erotic romance by night. I love all genres of romance, but have a special tendre for historical stories having been seduced by Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer at a young age. I even named my dog Darcy.

My son is a very imaginative five year old, so when the characters aren’t having conversations in my head I’m voicing the character of a witch, dragon, pirate or possibly knight. Yes, I always get to be the bad guy for some reason! We live in the rural East of England not far from the forest so there are always plenty of opportunities for adventure.

“Screw your job. You’re with me now. You don’t need a job. But if you really want one, you need to find one that means you come home to me every night. Either that, or you can just work for me. I’ll pay you a decent wage. Now, let’s stop talking, eh?”

“Okay.”

Kane rolled off Paul and got to his feet, quickly pulling off his clothes again and discarding them on the floor. A glance across the room assured him that Paul was doing the same. He waited, watched, as the other man’s delectable body was revealed once more. Broad shoulders, muscles to die for, a torso so lickable it should have been illegal. This time he didn’t try to hide that he was watching, or resist the lure. He simply stared, transfixed at Paul, his own cock lurching as he saw just how engorged Paul’s was. Their need for each other was completely and utterly mutual and apparent, and it was time to give in to it.

“Back on the bed,” Kane ordered, crossing to his bedside table and retrieving some lube. A condom was unnecessary—shifters couldn’t contract human diseases—but the lube was definitely needed. He was going to be more than a little hard on Paul, and he didn’t want to hurt him. Not badly, anyway. He was sure the other man could take a little discomfort.

Hopping onto the mattress, he tossed the little bottle down beside him, then reached for Paul, slipping his hand behind his neck once more, closing the gap between them fast. Their mouths were already open when their lips contacted, tongues seeking entry, seeking each other. Their respective moans mingled in the still air of the bedroom as their hands wandered, grasping, groping, stroking. Hungry, needy.

Palming Paul’s cock, Kane reveled in how hot and hard it was beneath his touch, like the softest velvet wrapped around the most rigid steel, and he wondered if he could make the other man climax just by fucking his arse—with no stimulation on his cock whatsoever. It was time to find out.

“On your back.” He wanted to watch Paul’s face as they screwed, especially if Paul climaxed—it would be amazing.

Nodding, Paul rolled onto his back and bent his knees, spreading his legs and presenting Kane with easy access to his arsehole. “Delicious,” Kane said, grabbing the bottle of lube and moving between Paul’s thighs. Flipping open the cap of lube, he spread a liberal amount over his fingers, then circled Paul’s hole. The other man gasped, flinched slightly, but didn’t try to move away. In fact, he seemed to welcome the action, jerking his hips, encouraging Kane. It was fucking hot.

After squirting more liquid onto his digits, he began to work them inside Paul, stretching him and making the passage slippery. Finally, he smeared some of the stuff onto his own shaft, making sure there was plenty on his bell end. Once he started, he didn’t want to stop, not for anything. So he had to get it right first time, to ease the passage so he could sink inside the man in one fell swoop, possess him, fuck him.

Flinging the bottle aside, he wiped his sticky hand on the duvet and crawled up so his and Paul’s torsos were aligned, and his cock was in position. Kane rocked his hips, sliding his shaft against Paul’s balls and cock, tantalizing them both, for a few seconds. Then he reached down and grasped the base of his dick, lined up so the head pressed against Paul’s ring. Then, glancing up at Paul’s face for confirmation, he pushed inside. The other man bore down, making the initial resistance much less, entry much easier. Kane soon popped past the tight circle of muscle and was inside.

Continuing to push inside, Kane’s eyes rolled back in his head as he was enveloped by an impossibly tight grip and a powerful sense of completion. He was sure it was something to do with the bite, with his animal side, but as he couldn’t answer any of the questions that arose, he concentrated instead on the sensation, and losing himself in it.

Once he was balls-deep inside his lover, it didn’t take long to lose himself. For as long as he could manage without driving himself insane, he pumped slowly in and out of Paul’s back passage, each dragging motion pushing him closer to climax. Leaning down, he captured the other man’s lips in a heated kiss, one that made their already short breaths even more ragged, even more halting. They moved together, lips and cock and arse, in unison, as though they’d been doing this for years, as though they knew each other inside out and back to front. Paul reached up and tangled his hands in his lover’s hair, pulling Kane harder onto his mouth, forcing their tongues deeper.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post, as I’m snowed under here. My computer died this morning, and anyone that knows me, knows how inconvenient that was.
