A Siren Erotic Romance
4 HEARTS: "This is book three of this series and they need to be read in order. It gives you an insight into the characters and the story itself. It is an amazing series to read. I love the fact that Lyssa gives you such wonderful characters to fall in love with. It seems like each character has a pain from the past that they are going through. In this one, Bryce had been attacked a few months prior and was scared to even let someone touch him. He had the help of his friends to ease some of the fears. However, he was afraid of even the thought of dating. So on the night he saw Daxton he ran from him. However as he was leaving he did look back to see the man with a lot of pain in his expression. He had to think of what to do. With the help of his best friend, he let Daxton in to his life. Daxton was a prince of Sanzel, warrior and protector Mohar. However, Mohar had been hurting Daxton every time Daxton went against him. When he found his mate, he was full of happiness, but it hurt him when his mate feared him. With a lot of patience, he would get his mate to understand he is loved and protected. He also needed to tell Bryce about who he is and where he is from. Now that is a funny story to hear. It had to take a healing from Daxton to prove to Bryce that he was telling the truth. Then the change came on and Bryce learned that the men of Sanzel could get pregnant. Could you imagine someone’s expression when they hear that a man can have a baby? There are many things that they have to talk about but the one thing that they will never have to question is the love that they feel. It is an amazing story and I cannot wait to read book four. I have found another series that I have fallen in love with and am glad to have them added in my library. It will catch your attention from the start and will keep it all the way to the end. I would recommend this story if you love the paranormal worlds, two very sexy men, hot sex and a bit of danger involved. It has the perfect amount of all that and more in this book. I can guarantee that you will fall in love with it and the others. Lyssa has a wonderful gift at telling a story." -- Lisa, MM Good Book Reviews
4 HEARTS: "I found this book very delicious. I had never a Lyssa Samuels novel, but I loved this one to death. Couldn’t get enough of both Bryce and Daxton. I found myself able to identify with Bryce with how shy he was. We all have our inner geeks for something and it made me love Bryce as a character that much more. I loved the solid plot as well. I cannot wait to read another novel by her. Her novels are fantastic and highly recommended." -- Eric, MM Good Book Reviews
Bryce looked at Dax’s wrist, wishing he could see what both Archie and Dax said was there. He wanted to see his name on Dax’s wrist. He wanted to belong to the man who held him so gently and spoke to him with such kindness and caring.
Bryce’s heart hurt from the loneliness he had suffered. He wanted a committed relationship and a family with someone who would honor and respect him with sincere caring. He wanted a husband to spoil and love and maybe raise a few kids with. He really believed that Dax was the man who was meant to be his. He didn’t understand how he knew it, but he did know it down to his very bones. He wanted to make a life with Dax. He somehow knew that Dax would be the one to help him, for the first time in his life, know real love and be comfortable with intimacy.
“I don’t understand any of this,” Bryce told him, pulling back just slightly to look down at Dax. “I just know that being with you feels right.”
“It is,” Dax said firmly. “Understand this, Bryce. If we make love, our bond will be permanent. If you have any question at all that we should not be together from this moment forward, do not initiate this. Once we make love, you will be mine and I will be yours. Forever.”
“Is that what you want, Dax?”
Bryce looked at Dax to judge his sincerity. What he saw in Dax’s eyes made him know that Dax was completely sincere in his words. Somehow, the intensity in Dax’s eyes made Bryce know that he was not thought of as someone who was a quick hook up to be thrown away. Dax was looking for a permanent, committed relationship. With him.
“Dax, do you promise to be faithful to me?” Bryce asked gently, needing the reassurance.
“I will want no other,” Daxton answered firmly. “I promise to bond myself to you with my heart, my soul, and my body. I will cherish you and protect you with my life, Bryce.”
Bryce was overwhelmed with the intensity of Dax’s words. They sure sounded like the words that would be spoken at a wedding ceremony. What Dax spoke so true from his heart made Bryce know that this man held him in high reverence, and Dax was sincere in his feelings.
“I believe you,” he said finally, smiling when he saw the relief in Dax’s eyes.
“Please accept my heart and my commitment to you, Bryce,” Daxton said softly. “Please agree to be my mate. I want us to begin our life together.”
Bryce looked at Dax silently and searched his heart. That moment of connection that had healed him had also given him an insight into Dax’s thoughts and feelings. The healing power that Dax had filled him with had also instilled the knowledge of the honesty of the man and the bonding. He could feel the emotions that filled this unique man. He could feel the desire, the need, and the commitment that made up Dax’s nature.
Bryce smiled as he leaned forward to kiss Dax’s lips lightly. “I don’t know how or why, but I feel the same way even though this is happening so fast.”
“I understand, my love,” Daxton said softly. “I will wait for you to be ready to accept this.”
“Tell me what we have to do to bond ourselves to each other,” Bryce whispered.
“Is that what you want, Bryce?”
“Yeah. I don’t know why I feel so sure about it, but I guess I do,” he admitted softly. “Archie told me that he felt the connection to Magnus right away. He told me that I would feel the same quick connection to you, and that I should trust the feeling because you were the man who would love me.”
“Archer is correct, Bryce,” Daxton told him, his voice deep with sincerity. “When we meet the person meant for us, the need to bond with our destined mate is very strong. I must be honest with you and tell you that I want to complete our mating very much, my love. I promise I will always treat you with respect and kindness.” He smiled slowly, leaning forward and kissing Bryce’s forehead lightly. “And I will want to touch and make love to you all the time. You are tempting me beyond my control with your body.”
Bryce laughed softly. “Yeah, right. My scrawny body is driving you crazy.”
Daxton pulled back and looked down at Bryce in surprise before anger filled him. “Do you not realize how much you affect me?” he asked, reaching out and taking Bryce’s hand in his and pulling it firmly toward his groin. He pressed his mate’s palm against his erection. “Do you feel how much I want you? Do you doubt that you make me ache for you?”
Bryce’s breath caught in his throat as he felt the hard ridge of Dax’s cock as it pressed against his palm. He couldn’t help but cup him and squeeze lightly, loving the soft moan that left Dax’s lips as he caressed him.
“Dax, I want to bond with you,” Bryce whispered.
“In order to complete the bonding, you must fill me with your seed, and I must fill you with mine,” Daxton explained gently, pulling Bryce’s hand from his groin and kissing it lightly. “Once we have filled each other with our life’s essence, the markings on our wrists will be visible to you, and you will know that we are mates—for all time.” His eyes were filled with hope as he looked at his aheri.
“Is that what you want, Dax?” Bryce asked him, his voice barely audible. “I need to know that you want this. I don’t want this to be something you think we should do just because my name is on your wrist. It could be some kind of fluke.”
“What is a fluke, Bryce?” Daxton asked, his forehead furrowed in confusion.
“An accident. A coincidence,” Bryce explained. “There could be other reasons why this has happened. There might be someone else out there for you. I just happened to be here. I may just be convenient.”
“No,” Daxton growled, grabbing for Bryce’s face and holding it firmly within his grip. “You are not convenient, an accident, or a coincidence, aheri. What you are is mine.”
Daxton smiled as he slowly stood and helped Bryce to his feet. He waited while his mate settled himself on his back in the center of his bed. Looking down at the man, he nearly forgot to breathe as he took in the incredible sexiness of his mate. He climbed onto the bed and settled himself between his aheri’s legs. Leaning forward, he placed his hands on either side of Bryce’s shoulders to keep the bulk of his weight off of him then smiled at the incredible man.
“Hi,” Bryce whispered, reaching up to slide his fingers through Dax’s dark hair.
“Hello,” Daxton whispered back. “I am going to bury myself deep inside of you, my love. You must tell me if you feel any sense of panic. I will not allow you to feel anything but joy and pleasure. Do you promise to tell me what you are feeling, Bryce? You must tell me if I do anything that is displeasing to you.”
Daxton’s eyes flashed amber as he looked down at his man. When he saw the way Bryce was looking up at him, he felt like the most powerful man in existence. He had always hoped for a mate who would look at him the way Bryce was looking at him at that moment.
Bryce lifted his legs and held the backs of his knees, spreading himself open for Dax. He watched silently as Dax’s eyes flashed amber once again and a soft growl fell from his lips.
Moving closer, Daxton took hold of his shaft, poured a generous amount of the lube over its length, and lined it up to Bryce’s slick, stretched hole. He placed the head at the puckered opening and pressed forward slowly until he felt the give of the muscle and his shaft slid inside of his mate in one smooth glide.
The tightness and heat that surrounded his cock made him groan as pleasure swamped him. He looked down at Bryce and saw the expression of incredible pleasure that covered his mate’s face. He held himself still, taking short, shallow breaths to keep himself under control.
“Are you all right, my love?” Daxton asked, reaching forward and grabbing for Bryce’s wrist as he extended his hand toward him. The way Bryce turned his wrist so that he could hold his hand and entwine his fingers within his hold made him smile at the beautiful connection.
“Dax,” Bryce groaned, gasping as he felt the rubbing of the head of Dax’s cock against his prostate. “You feel so good inside of me.”
Daxton smiled and pressed his hips forward, drawing another groan of pleasure from both of them. Dragging across Bryce’s prostate as he pulled out, he looked down to see the amazing site of their bodies so intimately connected. His chest filled with emotion as he realized he had finally found a home within his destined mate.
Pressing back inside Bryce’s body, Daxton started a more intense rhythm, his sounds of pleasure matching his mate’s with each plunge and retreat. He watched as Bryce’s cock bobbed with each movement of his body. Daxton’s eyes dilated with passion as he saw Bryce take hold of his shaft and start pumping in tandem with Daxton’s plunges.
Daxton felt a sense of panic as he realized that Bryce was chasing his orgasm. He couldn’t allow that just yet. He froze all movement despite the way his body screamed at him to continue loving his mate.
“Bryce, you need to stay your orgasm,” he told him through clenched teeth.
“Are you kidding me?” Bryce snapped, his eyes wide as he looked up at Dax. “Your cock is driving me insane. Did you know you have some sort of a ridge on it that is pegging my gland every time you move? And you want me to hold off coming? Not gonna happen, Dax.”
Daxton pressed deep into his mate’s body, leaning forward and lying against Bryce’s body, trapping his mate’s cock between them. He kissed his aheri’s neck and chuckled softly against his ear.
“You’re laughing?” Bryce asked, astonished. “You’re freaking laughing?”
Daxton pulled back slightly to look down at Bryce. He kissed his lips lightly and nuzzled against his mate’s temple. “You must not come, Bryce,” he told him firmly.
“Why the hell not?” Bryce snapped, his cock throbbing as it was trapped between their bodies.
“Bryce, my love, look at me,” Daxton whispered, waiting until the frustration in Bryce’s eyes eased somewhat. “I need you to come when you are deep inside of me so that our bond can be completed.” He leaned forward and kissed Bryce’s lips lightly. “I need your seed inside of me.” He kissed him one more time, licking at the seam of his mate’s lips before biting down on his lower lip with just the right amount of pressure to draw a groan of desire from his aheri. “It must be that way, my love, so you can claim me as yours.”
Bryce blushed brightly, closing his eyes to try to center himself as Dax’s explicit words make him revert to his shyness. When he opened his eyes, he saw the beautiful color of his warrior’s eyes looking down at him.
“You are beautiful when you blush, my love,” Daxton whispered. “Why are you suddenly so shy?”
“Because you’re talking about my seed filling you,” Bryce explained quietly.
Daxton smiled, leaning forward and taking a sweet kiss from his beloved. “Are you embarrassed by the thought of filling me with your seed?” he asked, chuckling as Bryce covered his mouth to prevent him from talking further.
“Stop, Dax,” Bryce whispered.
Daxton carefully pulled Bryce’s hand away from his mouth. “You are absolutely adorable,” he said finally. “Tell me how I am embarrassing you, my love. I promise not to do it again.”
“I’m embarrassed by you talking about what I’m going to do,” Bryce explained. “But, Dax, I don’t want you to stop talking like that. I’m embarrassed, but I like it.”
Daxton’s smile was instant. His mate was so sweet. He especially liked that he wanted something so intimate with him. Bryce was absolutely perfect for him. He had a secret love of talking explicitly when they were intimate, and he enjoyed doing so and making his mate blush. It was something he was looking forward to doing for the rest of their lives together.
