[Siren Publishing: The Stormy Glenn ManLove Collection: Erotic Romance, Alternative, Romantic Suspense, Science Fiction, MM, HEA]
Someone is out to kill Jynx K'Vada and the only way he can protect himself is to buy a guardian beast, something he is loath to do. When he visits a lab and discovers a man being horribly abused, he buys him on the spot. He has no idea that he's just changed the entire course of his life.
Bay doesn't remember anything of his life past the last few weeks, and those had been filled with nothing but pain and rage. When a sweet smelling man rescues him from his horror, Bay knows protecting Jynx is more important than his life. The man was meant to be his.
With the continued attempts on Jynx's life, and someone hunting them, they have to figure out who is after them before it's too late, but doing so means solving a mystery neither of them are prepared for. It reaches beyond them and into the stars.

Jynx shook his head as yet another pet was brought before him. This one at least looked like he had been given a decent meal recently. He might be able to defend Jynx as well as himself.
In the last few days he had seen pet after pet. Most of them seemed to be pleasure slaves, which was definitely not what Jynx was looking for. He needed someone that could protect him, not give him a good time between the sheets.
"Do you have anything a little sturdier?" Jynx asked as he turned to look at the lab agent standing next to him. "I'm looking for someone to keep me safe, not warm my bed. The commander said you might have a guardian beast I could purchase."
Just saying the words made Jynx's stomach roll. He was beginning to wonder if this was such a good idea. Maybe he should rethink his idea of hiring another bodyguard. At least with a bodyguard, they could think for themselves. Jynx didn't want some mindless slave.
"I'm certain we can find something that meets your requirements, Seer K'Vada," the smarmy little man replied. "If you will just come this way?"
Jynx rolled his eyes and followed the lab agent down the hallway to another wing of the laboratory. All those white walls were starting to give him a headache.
"I'm sure I can find you something to meet your needs," the man began saying as if it was an everyday occurrence to be discussing the purchase of another human being. "We have a thirty day guarantee on all of our products. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with your purchase you can bring it back and exchange it for another."
The man flashed Jynx a smile.
Jynx barely stopped from shuddering. He didn't like the lewd way the man looked at him. It was even creepier than the idea of buying someone.
"Are you sure you wouldn't rather purchase a pet? They can be very useful in relieving stress. Our training program has the highest rating."
I'll bet. Jynx plastered a smile on his face. "Positive."
"Very well." The man led Jynx to a large metal locked door. He typed in a code on the keypad and the door swung open. The man walked in, hit a button near the door causing a red light to flash and then gestured to the long hallway. "All of the specimens in this wing have been micro-chipped and are ready for purchase."
Jynx glanced where the man pointed, grimacing. Lining each side of the long hallway were small cells. Each cell held one person. The moment the red light flashed the men and women stood at attention in front of the large glass doors keeping them in their cells.
They looked like perfect little automatons.
Jynx walked down the hallway looking into each cell as he passed. The agent was right, everyone here seemed to be hardy, healthy, and in some cases, downright huge. Still, Jynx wasn't feeling a connection with any of them.
He knew that wasn't the point. Whichever one he chose would have their microchip adjusted to match his biorhythms, making them basically answerable to only him. Until Jynx either sold them or died, they would belong to him.
"Do any of these specimens fit your requirements, Seer K'Vada?"
"Just K'Vada, please," Jynx said. "Seer is my designation, not my name."
"As you wish, Mr. K'Vada," the man said, bowing his head slightly.
Jynx ignored the man and continued down the hallway. He hated it when people referred to him as Seer K'Vada. Just because he could read thoughts and emotions didn't mean that was all he could do. He was more than his ability.
Jynx turned sharply when he heard a commotion at the end of the hallway. There seemed to be a lot of yelling and banging. His jaw dropped open when a man flew through the air, hit the far wall, and slid to the floor. There was blood on his face.
"Oh, my," the agent beside him whispered.
"What's going on down there?" Jynx asked.
"I'm sure it's nothing," the agent said quickly, placing his hand on Jynx's arm. "Why don't we go back down here and look at some of these specimens? I'm sure we can find you what you're looking for."
Jynx shook the man's hand off his arm and started down the hallway. The farther he went, the more anxiousness welled up inside of him. He couldn't tell where it was coming from. He was shocked that he was feeling it at all. The gold band he wore around his head was designed to suppress the thoughts and emotions of others.
It wasn't helping. The thoughts and emotions that bled through were jumbled, incoherent, but their meaning was clear in all of its intensity. Their desperation clawed at me. Someone was terrified, screaming out for freedom.
They were also angry and hurt.
The noise grew louder the further Jynx walked. He could hear men laughing, prodding and teasing someone or something. Whoever it was roared in outrage, sending a spike of apprehension shooting down Jynx's spine.
Jynx rounded a corner and felt more shocked than he could ever remember being. He looked into a small square room. Three rather large men in uniforms stood between him and the creature crouched in the corner on the far side of the room.
He was pretty sure it was a man, a very large man, but it was hard to tell. Besides the numerous electrical burn marks on his body, the lacerations and abrasions, the man was totally naked except for a long curtain of matted blue-black hair.
Jynx quickly realized that the three men torturing him didn't know he stood behind them. They were laughing and pointing at the man in the corner, making all sorts of rude and derogatory comments.
When one man stepped forward and started stabbing at the crouching man with what looked like a cattle prod, Jynx clenched his hands as rage flared through him. He used his strongest, most intimidating voice. "What the hell is going on in here?"
"My name is Jynx K'Vada. Most of my friends just call me Jynx. You may also."
"Well, go ahead, say it," Jynx directed.
Bay shook his head. He felt his panic rise right along with the dark eyebrow on the man's face. He shook his head frantically and sat on the floor at Jynx's feet, bending his head forward and pointing to the small incision in the back of his neck.
Jynx's hands were like a flutter across his skin, so soft that he couldn't keep from closing his eyes at the pleasure that filled him. It seemed like an eternity since someone had touched him with gentleness.
"Hmm, I see. Well, we'll just have to take care of that when we get home."
Relief flooded Bay. He opened his eyes to somehow let Jynx know how grateful he felt for everything the man had done when he realized that his face was just above the man's more than impressive groin.
And the man was aroused.
Bay's breathe quickened in his chest. He licked his suddenly dry lips. He might have forgotten everything in his past but he knew exactly what that was. He also knew how to thank this mysterious savior of his.
Bay peeked at Jynx from between the locks of his hair as he reached for the closure on his bodysuit. Jynx's eyes widened, but he did nothing to stop him until Bay had his suit open and his hand pushed inside.
"Wait, wait," Jynx said as he grabbed Bay's hand and stopped him. "I didn't buy you for sex. Someone is trying to kill me. I need protection."
Bay tilted his head to one side. Of course he would protect Jynx. He had to. Bay didn't know why he had to. He just knew he did. The man's safety and well being were more important than anything, even Bay's life.
He nodded his head hoping Jynx would know he understood and then he reached his hand back inside the opening of the man's bodysuit again, massaging his fingers over the bulbous head, smoothing the pre-cum at the same time. His thumb nail pressed into the tiny slit at the top of the head.
Jynx gasped. His entire body shuddered. His hands gripped the long hair on Bay's head. "You—you don't have to do this," he whispered even as he pulled Bay closer to his body.
It didn't matter what Jynx said. Bay knew he had to. He knew it like he knew he needed to protect him.
It just was.
The heady scent of Jynx's arousal, along with the clear liquid seeping from his cock filled Bay's lungs, making his mouth water for just one taste. With a feral smile, Bay swallowed Jynx's straining cock. The taste of pre-come exploded on his tongue and he knew he wanted more. He wanted it all.
Bay heard a swift intake of breath and then Jynx shuddered when he wrapped his lips around the flared head of the man's cock. Encouraged by Jynx's response, Bay began to suck, his tongue tracing the veins, his cheeks hallowed as he moved Jynx's thick erection further into his mouth, bobbing his head up and down.
Jynx's fingers glided through Bay's hair, holding his head in place as Bay sucked and licked, swallowing it down the man's pre-cum. Using his tongue, Bay laved the tender depression beneath the swollen crown and then tongue-fucked the tiny slit, licking away the salty taste of Jynx's desires.
Another groan rumbled through Jynx.
Jynx's hips thrust hard, driving his cock deep into Bay's mouth. Bay's body screamed with pleasure, with an overload of sensations that made him whimper around the man's cock. Jynx's body was so hard, so hot against Bay that it nearly scorched him.
Jynx tightened in Bay's hair, his hips pumping faster. Pre-cum was leaking from the head of his cock like a river and Bay knew the man was close. Jynx's moans were becoming more frequent, his body was trembling. Hearing the sultry groans that spilled from Jynx's mouth caused Bay's own cock to ache and leak.
Bay thrust his head down, taking Jynx's cock as far as he could into his mouth. He used his teeth as he scraped them along Jynx's shaft, giving the man just a little more added pleasure.
Jynx's hips moved faster, and Bay created stronger suction, driving Jynx's desire higher. He recognized the signs of Jynx's approaching orgasm and was more than ready to swallow whatever Jynx had to give him. He worked the hard flesh in his mercilessly, using everything he could think of to ruthlessly take the gorgeous man to the brink of climax.
As his throat massaged Jynx's length, Jynx came hard, screaming Bay's name. His hot seed spurted down Bay's throat in hot ribbons of release. Bay swallowed greedily, savoring the salty taste of his of the cream filling his mouth in great spurts.
When Jynx slumped back into his seat, Bay regrettably eased back. He let the man's softening cock slip from his mouth and then sat back, tucking Jynx back into his bodysuit. Bay felt the need to cuddle into the man, but he wasn't sure if he should. He wasn't even sure if that was allowed.
Jynx wrapped his delicate hand around Bay's neck and pulled him close. "Thank you," he whispered into Bay's ear.
Bay grinned as he dropped his head down to Jynx's thigh, resting it there as he breathed the man's spicy scent into his lungs.
That was enough for now.
