“This story was fast paced with lots of action and suspense; it was funny at times and also a very sexy and erotic read. It was a compelling story from its beginning to the end; it offers readers well developed, complex characters. This book is a passionate and emotionally engaging roller coaster ride from start to finish and one you do not want to get off of too soon! If you love spankings and a bit of ménage and some exciting action then you will enjoy this book.” ~ Cocktails And Books On Undercover Obsession
“This is a wonderfully written and erotic story of three brothers, each one dealing with a ghost from their past. Although this is one book, it is written in three parts, one for each brother then seamlessly blended. Author BJ Wane did an incredible job weaving the three threads into one cohesive story. All of the main characters as well as the secondary ones are well-written with emotional depth. The sex scenes are hot, with the BDSM theme to them but not overly done. Overall, this is a great book and one I would gladly recommend.” ~ The Romance Reviews On The Mcgilley Trilogy
“It is rare to find an erotic book that actually tells an intriguing story. I absolutely loved this book. Yes, it had its saucy sex and spanking scenes, but it had a mystery that actually evolved into an exciting ending. I know I’ve read a great book when I immediately go into Amazon and start looking for additional works from the author. I can’t wait to read the next one.” ~ Amazon Reader On Pendelton Manor
Damien LaRue has spent the better part of two hundred years trying to atone for an act he was driven to commit shortly after master vampiress, Isabelle Sartre ended his life in 1815. Because he could never forgive himself, he planned to meet the dawn soon, never intending to claim his mate, but he hadn’t counted on Abrielle Chirac’s tenacity and her utter faith in him.
Jacob Carter has spent decades longing to find his mate, but when he finally does, it’s to rescue her from one of his own. Grace Larsen was shocked to discover her immediate sexual response to the vampire who rescued her from a kidnapping. Ignoring her body’s demands, she refuses to believe Jacob is any different than the vampire who tormented her. When Jacob is critically wounded from a rogue attack, Grace is left with two choices- watch the man she has grown to care for die or use her body, the one thing she has been withholding from him, to save him.
Jon and Luc Preston always assumed when they found their mate, she would fall meekly in between them, just like they liked their women. But they hadn’t counted on a feisty, independent redhead who would only accept them on her terms. It takes several erotic lessons to convince Caitlin O’Brien to their way of thinking.
Discovering that their nemesis, Isabelle, is behind the attacks on their mates, Damien, Jacob, Jon and Luc must resolve the issues keeping them from completing their mating bonds if they’re going to have any hope of ending Isabelle’s existence permanently.
Damien LaRue slowly, somewhat reluctantly, descended the wide stairway of his antebellum home. From the sounds of it, the mating ceremony between the latest of his brethren lucky enough to have found his mate had already begun. It wasn’t because he begrudged his friend and comrade his happiness that he had put off making an appearance tonight, it was simply a desire to save himself the stark reminder that he would not claim his own mate or the pleasure he knew he could find with her. Hushed voices and soft cries greeted him as he stopped at the double wide doorway that led into what used to be a grand ballroom. The huge, ornate room with its wall of French doors, glittering chandeliers and old world elegance had once hosted cotillions and balls for the wealthy and elite of Louisiana, had held election parties for political candidates whose influence and legislation still lived on even though it has been decades since their passing. The Civil War put an end to that era as assuredly as Isabelle had put an end to his life the way he remembered it.
Shoving aside his melancholy, he leaned against the doorway and watched the end of the mating ceremony between Beau and his mate, Emma, taking place on the small raised platform at the front of the room. It was only at gatherings like this that the ballroom got used anymore and right now the comfortable seating groups around the dais were taken by the members of his brethren that were mated. Having a penchant for bondage, Beau had Emma strapped down on a padded bench, her bare body glistening with oil, her nipples standing erect, her legs splayed for all to see how much Beau excited her. Her denuded labia already sported the telltale gold loop piercing that labeled her taken and off limits to any brethren who was still unmated. Of the fifteen of them who bore a crescent shaped, red birthmark on their right palm labeling them one of a chosen few who could survive the transformation from human to vampire without eventually going mad, there were only five who haven’t claimed that one woman who not only bore a similar mark somewhere on her body but whose mark responded to the nearness of her mate as only those destined to be together did.
Damien watched Beau step between Emma’s legs, stroke her soft flesh from her neck down over her quivering breasts then underneath her to cup her buttocks. Lifting her, he sank his cock into her pussy in one smooth stroke, her welcoming cry getting drowned out by the congratulatory applause that erupted in the large room.
Damien joined in, smiling at his long time friend’s pleasure and good luck. The now ten mated couples all knew first hand not only the exalted pleasure that could be found with one’s true mate, but the males finally knew the pleasure of coming into their full strength and power, enabling them to take on even more challenges against their fight against evil. He hoped Jacob, Mason and the twins, Jon and Luc, were all lucky enough to find their mates soon, thus completing their circle. Even though his own body had found and welcomed his mate years ago, Damien had no intention of claiming her. Once the remaining four come into their full power, he would seek the dawn as his final atonement for his sins. After all, if it hadn’t been for his cowardice and his lack of control, these men would not have been sought out and changed by Isabelle and the horrendous death of an innocent woman would not be on his conscience even now, almost two hundred years later.
“Damien! Quit scowling and join us,” Luc called out from where he sat at a table with his brother, Jon, and Jacob.
Damien took a seat, smiling in actual pleasure when Beau increased his thrusts, making Emma cry out in climax. “It’s a good match,” he said as he leaned back in his chair and tried to ignore the decidedly noticeable lack of strength in his body. If he didn’t pay a visit to Marie soon, he would be of no help to his brethren when out on patrol. Since their strength and power was enhanced by sex, twofold if it was with one’s mate, they fucked frequently. He, on the other hand, tended to wait until his body was almost depleted before seeking out Marie, a longtime acquaintance who has been seeing to his needs for almost thirty years. He knew some of his brethren liked variety before finding their mate, but ever since discovering three years ago that Abrielle was his mate, he has been reluctant to seek his pleasure with anyone except Marie, and he now sought her out only when he absolutely had to.
“If you’re happy for them, why don’t you show it?” Jacob eyed his best friend with worry clouding his green eyes. He noticed the signs of Damien’s depleted state, the slower movements and drawn look, and knew he was going to have to browbeat him into going to Marie again soon. They all knew Abrielle was his mate, yet none of them knew why Damien refused to bond with her.
