was getting tired. Since he and his men had come to Maddox three
weeks ago, they had been very busy getting this town up to code. Soon
as they arrived they jumped right in and started going building to
building, making sure every structure was sound, and they were still
only about a third of the way through. They had a long road ahead of
them, but at least the work kept them busy.
per King Destrain, this town hadn’t been truly taken care of in
years, which was one of the reasons Destrain, Illan, and Justice were
able to buy it up so cheap. Well, cheap considering they had
purchased a whole town. But with the paranormal world becoming
unstable they all needed to band together.
vision was coming true, and with that a great threat was coming
toward them. Illan, Justice, and Destrain were moving them all in the
right direction by owning Maddox and Crystal, and buying up all the
land in between. The paranormal race needed each other now more than
ever if they were all going to survive.
was their last stop of the day before they could head back home and
get some rest before they started all over again in the morning. The
gay club he now stood in was scheduled to open in a few days and Rhys
had made sure they would have no problem checking the place from top
to bottom. So far everything was perfect. Nick was very impressed
with the work that had been done here and all the safety measures
Rhys had taken to ensure the patrons who visited would be protected.
small smile came to his face when he thought of the small pixie. Rhys
was a stunningly beautiful man who was very feminine, and sexy as
hell. Too bad Rhys was already mated to his good friend Illan’s
son, Daytona, and his other mate, Ethan. If the pixie were single,
Nick would definitely try to get to know the man better. Rhys was a
little too twinkish for his taste, but he sure wouldn’t have minded
cozying up to the cutie on a few cold nights.
was just about done checking the sprinklers in the vestibule of the
club when he heard the door open behind him, but he paid it no
attention. Since they had started working, a few people had come in
with deliveries, so he ignored it.
of a sudden, a light, flowery scent wafted up to him and Nick closed
his eyes for a moment, enjoying the delicious smell. His bear reared
up and pounded its fists against his chest, wanting to get out and
roll around in the scent. Nick’s eyes snapped open from the
realization of what this meant. Mate. His mate had just walked in.
turned to look over his shoulder and his breath caught from the site
of the gorgeous man standing just inside the door, looking back at
him in wonder. The gorgeous man walked closer as their gazes stayed
must be Chief Holt. Rhys said you and your men would be here this
evening to check on the place. I’m sorry I wasn’t here earlier
when you arrived, but I had a meeting at Town Hall to sign the final
business permits,” the man explained anxiously.
moved down and stepped off the ladder, his gaze never leaving the
other man's face. The man before him, his mate, was the most
beautiful thing he had ever seen. Now that Nick was on level ground
with the man, he could see that he was a few inches shorter than
Nick’s own six foot six, and weighed a lot less than his own two
hundred and fifty pounds. This stunning creature had to be about six
feet tall and maybe a hundred and eighty pounds, sleek, with a
swimmer’s build, and the most amazing deep blue eyes Nick had ever
seen. It went perfectly with his straight, shoulder-length, jet-black
hair, that looked so soft and silky. Nick’s fingers itched to run
through those strands to see if they would feel as delightful as they
appeared. And those lips, damn they were sexy. Plump and
heart-shaped, with a blush of pink coloring. Nick wondered what those
lips would look like wrapped around his cock. Which, at the moment,
was lengthening in approval.
are you, handsome?” Nick asked, flashing the man a bright smile.
Jagger Valentine. I’m the new manager here, and your mate,”
Jagger answered breathlessly.
Onyx blurted out with a laugh from beside him, bringing Nick out of
his lust-filled haze.
done here. Why don’t you go round up the boys, Onyx. I’ll meet
everyone back at the station once I’m done with the paperwork
here,” Nick said.
right. The paperwork,” Onyx snickered and turned to leave. “Have
fun with that, Chief.”
growled at Onyx’s back as the man disappeared inside the club, then
he turned his attention back to his mate. He held out his hand in
invitation to shake in greeting. Jagger stepped closer, reaching out
his hand, and clasping Nick’s larger, meatier hand. “Nick Holt.
New fire chief of Maddox, and your mate,” Nick introduced himself
and gave Jagger another sexy smile.
nice to meet you. Now what do we do?” Jagger asked with a smirk.
stepped in closer without releasing Jagger’s hand, and forced
Jagger to stumble backward. Nick wrapped an arm around his mate’s
waist to steady him as he advanced further, not stopping until
Jagger’s back was pressed against the wall with Nick’s larger
frame trapping him. “Now this,” Nick said, cupping Jagger’s
cheek, as he leaned down and captured Jagger’s luscious lips.
felt his mate’s body tense for a moment, then quickly comply with
his dominance, and Jagger relaxed, submitting to him as Jagger opened
those lips, allowing Nick’s tongue to invade and taste his mate for
the first time.
senses were on overload. Jagger’s slightly earthy scent wrapped
around him and his mate’s taste was like hot chocolate on a cold
winter's night, sweet, sensual, comforting, and inviting. A deep
growl rose inside Nick’s chest and he wanted more. He held Jagger
tighter as his tongue invaded his mate’s mouth, exploring every
inch. Jagger returned his passion and held onto Nick’s hips,
pulling him closer, their hard shafts pressing together, and a moan
escaped Jagger’s lips. Nick’s bear reared up in approval,
scratching to get at their mate. Nick pulled back from the kiss and
nibbled a line across Jagger’s cheek to his neck.
that’s nice,” Jagger said breathlessly.
feel so right in my arms, mate. I need to feel more of you,” Nick
yes,” Jagger answered and pushed Nick’s shoulders gently.
straightened, giving his mate a confused look, until he saw the
desire in the man’s eyes. For a moment, he was a little nervous
that it was the deep scar that ran down his cheek that had his mate
pushing him away. He knew it made some people look at him with
caution. It actually made him look meaner than he was. It was
something that never bothered him before, but now, even with the
small thought of it affecting his mate, it caused Nick’s stomach to
twist. But then he recognized the desire in Jagger’s eyes and all
thoughts of his scar faded.
grabbed his hand and slid from the wall. Pulling Nick behind him,
Jagger led him to the private elevator on the far side of the
vestibule, and keyed in a code. The doors slid open and Jagger
dragged him inside, the doors closing behind them.
pushed him against the wall this time and attacked Nick’s lips, as
his hands roamed over Nick’s chest. Nick returned the fevered kiss.
After a minute, he heard the doors open again and pulled back from
the kiss. Jagger panted and licked his lips. “Damn, you taste
fucking fantastic. Come on, lover,” Jagger purred and grabbed
Nick’s hand again, pulling him out of the elevator and right into a
spacious studio apartment.
floors were covered in a honey colored hardwood, with large floor to
ceiling windows making up the two outside walls, giving a beautiful
view of Main Street, Maddox. The place had to be at least two
thousand square feet of open space. To the left was a top of the line
kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances, a marble top counter
separating the kitchen from the rest of the space, with high-end
artfully crafted lights hanging above. To the right of that was a
glass table with four white chairs. Swinging his gaze around the
room, Nick saw two wooden stairs about fifteen feet long, that came
to a corner, then continued around another fifteen feet, connecting
with the far glass wall. On top of the steps was an opening leading
to a raised room that was surrounded by smoked glass panels that now
sat open to show the large platform bed on the other side, pushed
against the windows, with the same stunning view. There were boxes
piled all around the room, but the bed was nicely made with
masculine, chocolate brown sheets and a dark blue comforter.
place,” Nick commented.
It comes with the job. Excuse the boxes, they just arrived today. The
rest of my furniture should be arriving tomorrow night,” Jagger
replied as he stood there watching Nick.
I see you’re living out of boxes, too, right now,” Nick said.
I’ll have everything set up and put away within the next week. With
the grand opening this weekend, well, if the gorgeous fire chief
signs off on the papers that is, this may take me a few days,”
Jagger said, flashing Nick a sexy, flirtatious smile.
I think I can put in a good word with the chief to get those papers
moving right away,” Nick replied, flirting back as he stepped
closer, slipping an arm around Jagger’s waist again.
yeah? Well then, I must find a way to thank him for his fastidious
work,” Jagger answered and ran his hands up Nick’s chest.
was easy with Rhys taking charge. That man knows what he’s doing.
He spared no expense on the safety features in this building.”
that’s comforting to know, seeing that I will be working and living
here. As well as giving me peace of mind for our patrons,” Jagger
replied and leaned in, kissing Nick’s throat.
lifted his chin, giving Jagger more room as a low growl rumbled in
his chest. His hands tightened around Jagger’s waist as his eyes
closed from the pleasure. He couldn’t take much more of this
flirting and teasing, he needed more. Nick held Jagger tight, picking
him up and Jagger wrapped his legs around Nick’s waist. Nick walked
them across the room and climbed the two steps to the raised loft.
placed Jagger on his feet beside the bed, then slid his hands to the
hem of Jagger’s untucked button down and pushed beneath the fabric
making contact with his mate’s smooth skin. Jagger met his gaze as
his hands went to the buttons on his shirt and began unbuttoning
them. Nick’s gaze stayed glued to what Jagger was doing, his need
rising with each inch of flesh being exposed.
twinkle entered Jagger’s eyes and he licked his lips again. That
was it for Nick, his need skyrocketed and he needed to feel their
bodies intertwined. He grabbed the front of Jagger’s black shirt
and tore it the rest of the way open, causing a few buttons to pop
and clink against the hardwood floor. Jagger gasped from the action
and his eyes filled with heat.
grabbed the hem of his own shirt and quickly pulled it up over his
head and tossed it aside, then undid the buckle on his belt, popped
the button, and drew the zipper down. He pushed his jeans down his
hips, taking his boxer briefs with them and toed off his shoes, then
stepped out of his clothes. Nick looked up and met his mate’s lust
filled gaze and he straightened to his full height, allowing his mate
to look his fill.
gaze roamed over his body, and with each second, it felt as if his
mate were caressing him with his eyes. His ego soared with the
knowledge that his mate appreciated his naked form. Not only was he a
bear shifter, but being a firefighter, Nick worked out daily to keep
his physique in top working condition. From the look in his mate’s
eyes, every minute had been worth it.
you’re big. And I’m not just talking about your size. Fuck if
that ain’t the biggest, most beautiful cock I have ever seen,”
Jagger stated with a whimper.
quickly divested himself of his slacks and shoes, as Nick let his
gaze roam freely, appreciating his mate’s toned form as well. Nick
licked his lips as his gaze fell on the hard, leaking shaft, jutting
out from a patch of dark wiry curls between Jagger’s legs. It had
been almost a year since Nick had been with a lover and he needed the
pretty big there yourself, mate. I can’t wait to taste you,” Nick
growled, then moved closer, pressing against Jagger, making the man
lose his balance so he fell back down onto the bed behind him with a
chuckle. Nick loved the sound of his mate’s happiness and wanted to
hear it every day for the rest of their lives. Jagger pushed back,
sliding up the bed as Nick climbed on, crawling over his body. Once
Jagger’s head laid on the pillow, Nick claimed his mate’s lips
again, needing another taste.
pressed down against Jagger, pushing the man into the mattress with
his weight, and groaned at the deep pleasure the move gave him.
Feeling his mate’s naked flesh against his and their hard, leaking
cocks pressed together was a delicious sensation
back from the kiss, Nick worked his way down Jagger’s body,
stopping to nip his collarbone and pay attention to the pink discs on
his chest. Nick played with the small, hard nubs for a moment, then
continued down to Jagger’s hip bone, nipping him there as well.
Nick took great joy in all the small grunts, groans, and whimpers
that came from his mate under his ministrations. And the way Jagger’s
body arched and writhed against the bed was very erotic.
tip of Jagger’s cock brushed against his chin, and Jagger
whimpered. “You okay, sweetness?”
yeah. The brush of your five o’clock shadow against my cock felt
great,” Jagger answered, panting.
chuckled and gently ran his bristled cheek against the underside of
Jagger’s cock, making the man cry out his name like a plea. Nick
licked around the bulbous head, taking in the tangy taste of his mate
and loving it. He wrapped his lips around the helmet and sucked,
trying to get more of that delicious goodness. Slowly he lowered his
head, taking more of Jagger inside him, then stopped as the tip hit
the back of his throat. Nick sucked on the shaft as he pulsed his
tongue against the thick vein on the underside and Jagger went crazy.
fucking hell, mate! Oh, yes! Damn, that’s so fucking good!”
pulled off Jagger’s shaft long enough to ask for lube, then
returned to giving his mate a blow job he would never forget. A soft
thud sounded next to his head and without stopping his attention to
his mate’s cock, Nick turned slightly and saw the tube. He snatched
it up and blindly poured some on his fingers, then drizzled a little
down Jagger’s crack. He tossed the bottle aside and slid a slick
finger between Jagger’s cheeks, slicking the seam, then pressed a
finger against his hole.
continued to suck his mate as he added more fingers, stretching
Jagger open to accept his large cock, as he listened to Jagger’s
cries of passion and felt his body moving against the bed. Nick
couldn’t wait any longer. He needed to be inside his mate and see
the sexy man with his own eyes as he took pleasure from what Nick did
to him. And he would give his mate only pleasure.
felt Jagger’s sac pull up tight against his body and knew his mate
was on the edge, but he didn’t want the man coming now. He wanted
his mate to come around him, squeezing his cock tight as he was balls
deep inside him. Nick released the suction and slid off Jagger’s
shaft, as he pulled his fingers from within him. Jagger whimpered
from the loss, but Nick quickly got into position between Jagger’s
spread thighs and grabbed the base of his cock. He placed the tip
against Jagger’s hot hole and pushed forward, thrusting just enough
for the tip to breach the outer ring, and causing his mate to cry out
closed his eyes against the pure bliss he felt at having his mate
wrapped around him, and Nick wasn’t sure he would make it
completely inside his mate. Only the head was buried within him and
the pleasure was so great that he was already about to explode.
a deep breath, he slowly released it and pressed forward, sinking
deeper. The feel of Jagger’s body stretching around him, opening
just for him, was euphoric and Nick didn’t stop until his balls
tapped Jagger’s ass and he was fully seated inside his mate.
bear rolled over onto his back, exposing his belly, as he growled
low, telling Nick of his own pleasure from what Nick was doing.
“Move, mate. Take me now,” Jagger begged.
was he to deny his mate? Especially when he begged so nicely. Nick
grasped Jagger legs and threw them over his shoulders, then grabbed
his mate's hips and began a steady pace, thrusting in and out. Nick
watched in fascination as his mate twisted and writhed against the
bed below him. His fingers clutching at the comforter, and his
knuckles turning white. Nick thrust in harder and Jagger arched up
off the bed, head pressing back into the pillow, eyes closed, and
mouth open as a sexy keening sound escaped his lips.
wanted to hear that sound again and keep his mate looking exactly as
he looked right now. The man was stunning lost in the throes of
passion. Nick could watch this vision forever and never get tired of
it. Two gleaming white fangs dropped from Jagger’s gums, the tips
pushing past his lips and Nick immediately knew what his mate was. A
vampire. He had no problem with whoever fate had granted him as a
mate, for he knew mates were a great gift, and made perfect for one
another. And his bear was in complete agreement. He growled low,
demanding Nick claim what was theirs.
slid Jagger’s legs from his shoulders and lay above him, placing
his arms on either side of Jagger’s head, holding most of his
hulking form off his mate, their faces only an inch apart. “Look at
me, mate,” Nick growled through clenched teeth as his hips
continued a steady rhythm.
opened his eyes and their gazes met. Jagger’s eyes were glazed over
and Nick’s heart filled with pride knowing he put that look on his
mate’s face. But he also saw the raw need and desire within his
mate’s beautiful deep blue orbs. “I want you, mate. I want to
claim you and make you mine forever. Is that what you want, too?”
Nick asked, then held his breath, nervous his mate would reject him.
You are my mate and we were made to be joined. Claim me, my big,
strong bear,” Jagger panted, then turned his head to the side and
lifted his chin, exposing his throat in submission. Nick’s bear
went crazy with need, and Nick struck, sinking his teeth into the
soft flesh where shoulder met neck, then closed his eyes and moaned
in bliss as Jagger’s delicious blood bathed his tongue. It was like
nothing he had ever tasted before. Ambrosia came to mind, but even
that word paled as the definition of the taste of his mate. He
couldn’t think of anything that would describe this feeling of pure
bliss, or the taste of his mate. His bear stood on hind legs and
roared out his pleasure, the sound echoing through his mind and
multiplying his desire.
hips began to snap at a punishing pace as he took his mate harder and
faster, while still drawing his life-giving essence. A foggy thought
was niggling the back of his mind, but he was so enraptured in the
moment, that he couldn’t comprehend what it was telling him. His
mate’s blood was like liquid Viagra, a jolt of lightning, and
everything delicious in the world all wrapped in one package, and he
was the lucky bastard that got to experience it.
he heard a small whimper from his mate, but this one was not from
pleasure. Nick could hear and feel the distress coming from his mate,
and shook the fog from his brain.
taken too much, mate. Please stop,” Jagger whispered his plea, and
Nick immediately released his neck, pulling back and licking across
his mating mark.
