It’s plodding it’s way through Amazon’s system – what you might ask? Book 6 in the Bound and Bonded series – Undesirable Mate. And for those of you who are interested – here’s a sneak peak.
There were times when Phillip wished the voice in his head had a mute button. As he was walking with Kellen down to the cells, he decided this was one of those times. They were headed down the long hallway in the basement; their footsteps were the only sound in the empty space – well that, and his inner voice.
He’s gonna want that ferret as soon as he sees him, you know that, don’t you?
That guy’s got everything going for him that you ain’t.
How could you tie a man like Kellen to you for life – you know you’re just gonna disappoint him.
When are you going to get it through your head that you ain’t worth anything. You should let Kellen go, let him have his ferret, let him…
“Phillip. Phillip!” Strong hands gripped his biceps and Phillip found himself with his back to the wall, a worried Kellen in front of him.
“Why are you stopping? Would you rather see your old fuck-buddy alone?” The wince on Kellen’s face made Phillip feel guilty and he wished he’d censored the words before they came out. His inner voice kept bitching.
Of course he would – he ain’t gonna get blown if you’re pathetic ass is there, is he.
“Knock it off! You’re thinking too hard. It’s not doing you a bit of good,” Kellen said firmly.
“Well what do you…” Okay. He got it. The conversation was apparently over, and joy of joys it turned out that Kellen’s mouth was a mute switch, at least for his addled brain. As soon as their lips touched, every thought Phillip had went right out of his head. The harsh way Kellen devoured his mouth, the force of the man’s tongue checking out his gums, the hardness and heat of his mate’s body all combined to render Phillip mindless, and so freaking horny it hurt.
“Don’t think I don’t know how hard this’ll be for you when we go in there. But not being there’ll fuck with your mind even more,” Kellen said when he finally finished his lip assault and seemed satisfied with what could only be a blissed-out expression on Phillip’s face. “You’re a fucking strong wolf shifter, with a possessive nature that rivals my own. But know this. No matter what I had with that little fuck, it was exactly that – a fuck-fest and nothing more. You, you are the best thing to ever happen to me and believe me, you’re worth far more to me than anyone I’ve ever been with.”
Phillip felt his brain come online again and he half-wished it hadn’t. His inner voice could be a nasty bitch. But he needed to be sensible about this. Neither one of them were virgins. Phillip had screwed more than a few of the subs in the club and Kellen would have to handle that if it ever came up in conversation. And from what was said in Pearson’s office, Kellen had been played by the little shit, and he could imagine his mate wasn’t too happy about that.
“All I’ll ever want from now on is you,” Kellen said, his voice a lot softer this time. “You don’t know me well enough to trust me yet, and only time will take care of that, but know this. The moment I took one whiff of your scent, Tristan was dead to me, as was anyone else that I’ve had my cock in before.”
“Is that supposed to be romantic?” If so, Kellen could probably do with a few tips; although it was kinda sweet.
“Did it work?” It wasn’t so much the words but the hopeful expression on Kellen’s face that had Phillip smiling.
“We’ll work on it,” Phillip promised, giving Kellen’s chest a little push. It was like trying to shift a tank. “Let’s go sort out your little ferret friend, because Pearson is waiting on our report, and then I’ll show you the suite I use when I stay at the club.”
“And a meal?” Kellen said as he moved back, but he put his arm across Phillip’s shoulder as they headed for Tristan’s cell. “I plan on needing energy later.”
