The bad guys are behind bars, so why does psychic Jynx K'Vada feel like his life is one big whirlwind? He's found his mate. He should be happy. He just can't seem the shake the feeling that nothing will ever be the same again. When trouble comes looking, Jynx will have to dig deep and find a strength he never knew he had if he wants to survive.
All Bay wants to do is protect his mate and protect his king. That's not so easy when people seem to be coming out of the woodwork to kill them. Bombings, assassination attempts, kidnappings. Bay doesn't know who he can trust.
When a ghost from the past comes for them, Bay and Jynx will have to work together to keep their king and themselves alive long enough to solve a mystery decades in the making. And if they are lucky, they might fall in love somewhere along the way.

Bay walked out into the living room and headed straight for the communication panel on the wall by the front door. He'd been here long enough to figure out who he needed to call to find out what in the hell was going on.
"This is Commander Baylor of the King's Royal Guard," he said as soon as the call connected. "What can you tell me about these explosions? Is the city under attack or is this an isolated incident?"
"It seems to be centered at the detention facility, sir," the commander of the security forces replied. He was the same man who had helped Jynx when people were trying to kill him. "I have men headed there now."
"Let me guess, someone is trying to break the prince out of prison?"
Commander Torak frowned. "It looks that way, but how did you know?"
"I just had a feeling that this wasn't over." It had been too easy to arrest the prince and prove his involvement with the attempt on the king's life. Granted, Bay was pretty sure the guy was guilty, but he wasn't the mastermind of that mess.
"Do you have adequate security personnel to deal with this or should I call a unit of guards down from my ship?"
"I have it handled, Commander."
"Fine." Bay disconnected before the commander could say another word. He had seen the commander bristle at the question and wished this wasn't a penis measuring contest. He just wanted to offer help if it was needed. He didn't care whose dick was bigger, although he was pretty sure it was his.
Bay brought up the galactic weblink and waited for the call to connect. When it did, he crossed his arm over his chest and gave a small bow. "Sire, may I speak with your consort?"
King Nicolas sighed. "If you must."
Bay almost smiled, but the situation was too dire.
"Baylor," Cooper said when he appeared on the screen.
"Sire, there's been an attack on the detention facility where the prince is housed. I offered the assistant of our guards. At the moment, the security commander believes he has it handled so, with your permission, I will place a unit of guards on standby."
Cooper's jaw clenched before he nodded. "I want a full report as soon as you can get one. If Ruk is involved in his, it might lead us to him."
"You believe Ruk is behind this?"
"Honestly, no. He had his chance with the prince and lost. I think he's moved on to another plan to get Nicky."
"What would you like me to do?" Bay asked.
"You go down there and make sure the prince doesn't escape. If the commander gives you any shit, plant your fist in his face."
Bay grinned. "Yes, sire."
He liked this side of Cooper. The human had become downright bloodthirsty ever since his Marsovian genetics had been activated and he'd transformed into the man he was today.
"Report to me as soon as you know anything."
"I will, sire."
Cooper disconnected the interweb link. Bay turned to look at Jynx. "I don't suppose I could convince you to stay here?"
"I didn't think so."
Jynx was wonderful in just about every aspect of his personality. He was sweet, caring, smart, and so damn sexy, he made Bay's teeth ache. Unfortunately, he was also stubborn. Bay didn't even need to see the man's jutted jaw to know he would argue if Bay tried to make him stay behind.
"Well, come on if you coming. Cooper wants me to get down to the detention facility and see if I can figure out what is going on. He wants to know if Ruk is behind this, and if not, who is."
Jynx paled. "You think Ruk is behind this?"
"No and neither does to King's consort, but I'm not ruling anything out. Until I know for sure, everyone is suspect."
A little color came back to Jynx's cheeks as he raised an eyebrow. "Even me?"
Bay grinned as he grabbed Jynx and pulled him close. "You're at the top of the list."
Jynx laughed as he leaned into Bay.
Bay pressed a kiss to his lips before turning them toward the door. "You'll stay by my side at all times, understand?"
"If anyone tries to separate us, no matter who they are, use our link to alert me. Things are going to be pretty crazy and I don't want you getting lost in all of this."
"Consider me carbon bonded to your side."
Bay still had misgivings about Jynx going with him, but he also didn't want to leave the man behind. He really didn't like it when Jynx was out of eyesight. It was very hard to protect the man when he didn't know if he was in danger.
Once they got outside and hailed a hovercraft, it didn't take them very long to get to the detention facility. They had to get out of the hovercraft a couple of blocks away due to security barricades and there were a lot of people moving away from the area, but it was still closer than the apartment.
Bay kept a firm hold of Jynx's arm as they walked down the sidewalk toward the facility. He didn't trust that there wouldn't be someone dangerous in the throng of people trying to escape the fallout from the attack.
When they reached the security checkpoint, Bay looked around for someone who looked as if they might have some level of seniority. No one specifically stood out, but he knew there had to be someone in charge.
He spotted a man in a security uniform standing off to one side, his arms crossed as he looked out over the crowd. Bay would have dismissed him except there was something in the way he was looking at the crowd, almost as if he was scanning the people milling about for signs of danger.
He was the one Bay wanted to talk to.
He was going nuts. His shirt was making him crazy. He wanted to rip it off, but he didn’t want to spoil the surprise he had for Bay. Problem was, he wasn’t sure who was going to play with them more, him or Bay?
Speaking of Bay, where was his mate?
He got up from his desk and started to look for the man. Now that he was going to be able to spend some time with just him, he wanted to be able to do just that. But his surprise for his mate was making him horny, so now all he wanted was to get the man naked.
Moving into the bedroom, he could hear Bay in the shower, so Jynx decided to get undressed and wait for him in bed. Knowing he wasn’t going to last long, he grabbed the lube and began to slowly finger fuck himself while he waited for Bay to finish, all while giving his mate little moans through their link.
"What are you doing?"
Jynx didn’t bother to answer Bay in words; he just let Bay know what he was doing by feeling how good it felt to be putting something in his ass, slowly working it open.
The answering growl made him grin.
"I have a present for you," he whispered.
He didn’t think it would take long before Bay got out of the shower, and he was right. In moments, his mate was standing in the doorway, dripping wet, golden eyes watching him with laser focus as he got himself ready for Bay’s hard cock.
That had been the other things that had changed; one Jynx was still getting used to. When he was healed and his memories came back, Bay's eyes turned to the normal golden color of a Marsovian.
"Would you like to see what I got you?" Jynx teased, slowly moving his other hand over his stomach, up towards his chest.
"What?" Bay rumbled, prowling towards the bed. Once he stood beside it, he looked Jynx up and down, his gaze stopped on Jynx’s chest.
"Do you like them?" Jynx slowly began to play with the rings that were in his nipples. They both knew how sensitive Jynx's nipples were, and how playing with them was going to drive him out of his mind.
"Mine," Bay snarled at him and then pounced, knocking Jynx's hand away so he could proceed to lick at the rings, letting his tongue snag on them, one at a time and pulling on them, driving Jynx out of his mind, but what a way to go.
This was one beast he wasn't going to let get away.
Jynx's eyebrow arched when Bay grabbed his hand, but the air whooshed out of his lungs when the man pulled his hand down and pressed it against his hard cock
"See what you do to me, mate?" Bay asked in a husky voice. "See how much you turn me on?"
Heat flushed Jynx's skin when something possessive and scorching ignited in Bay's golden eyes. The man's touch was feather-light, worshiping, as his fingers moved gently across Jynx's skin. The awe in Bay's expression as he watched what he was doing took Jynx's breath away.
Bay let out a small whimper when arms of steel wrapped around his waist. Before Jynx could draw in a breath, Bay's lips covered his, the man's tongue pressing in to explore and conquer. Jynx melted into Bay's embrace, his body tingling with need.
Bay's hand trailed down Jynx's side before moving around to grab his ass. "Need you, mate. Need to feel you." He drew Jynx over to bed. His dark eyes were heated, inflamed, as he sat back and just stared. "Goddess, you are beautiful."
Jynx trembled when Bay reached out and grabbed his cock, giving it a good stroke from root to tip. "Bay."
"Spread your legs, baby."
Was he serious?
Jynx blinked in surprise when Bay pushed his legs apart. Apparently, he was serious. Jynx's fingers dug into Bay's shoulders, holding on just a bit tighter. His legs shook even more every time Bay touched him.
"Bay!" Jynx cried out when a thick finger breached his ass. The finger stretching his ass began to move. He had the insane urge to squat down on top of that finger so it could move in and out of him more easily, except that he couldn't. It was physically impossible.
"Roll over onto your side."
Jynx had no idea why Bay wanted him to roll to his side, but he trusted the man. He wasn't going to argue. He scooted around until he was on his stomach. The order became instantly clear when Bay's finger pushed into his ass again, the man grabbing his cock at the very same time.
Jynx cried out and bucked, unsure if he wanted to push back against the invasion thrusting into his ass or thrust his cock through the fist slowly driving him out of his mind. Bay pushed a second finger deep inside of Jynx's ass, and then a third, thrusting them in and out, spreading them, rubbing against Jynx's sweet spot.
Jynx's head fell back, the intense burning warring with the pleasure shooting through his body at lightning speed. He almost couldn't keep up with the exquisite sensations flooding his system, one right after the other.
"Look at you," Bay whispered hoarsely, "Look how sexy you are."
Looking deep up into Bay's golden eyes, Jynx could believe what the man was saying to him. There was no way a man could look at him with such burning intensity without there being some truth behind his words.
Jynx reached up and cupped the side of Bay's face, drawing the man's lips down to his. Bay's hot breath blew across his face as their lips met. The kiss was surprisingly sweet considering how erotic every other touch between them was.
"I need to be yours," Jynx whispered against Bay's lips.
"You're mine," Bay replied as his black eyes bored into his. "You will always be mine."
Jynx inhaled sharply when Bay's fingers pulled out of his ass. He felt hollow, empty. He almost cried out in protest until he was lifted and turned, and then settled on his hands and knees. Bay's large hand grabbed the nape of his neck, pressing him down toward the mattress. His other hand lifted Jynx's ass up into the air.
It was not a dignified position.
