[Menage Amour ManLove: Erotic Alternative Contemporary Menage a Trois Paranormal Romance, M/M/M, shape-shifter, HEA]
Coyote shifter Elijah Pryde is leaving San Diego behind—he may have his parents there, but he has an abusive ex and a job that he hates for a boss who treats him like rubbish. Eli heads cross country to Nebraska where his human half-brother has found his mate.
Gabriel and Xander Arcadius are black bear shifters. Gabe is the clan alpha and town mayor, while Xander is the clan beta and works their ranch. They are mates who have been together for almost twenty years.
However, there are two facts that make black bear shifters different—they have two mates and alpha black bears can impregnate their male mates! They already have one son, but they’ve been searching for the final mate for as long as they’ve been together. Now, their search for their mate is finally over, but misunderstandings and a dangerous ex threaten their happily ever after.
Gabe and I scrambled to right our clothes.
Our poor mate must feel like his heart was ripped out, even if I wasn’t sure which of us he identified as his mate and which was interloper. It would have been a confounding image, I am sure, so I could not blame him for not sticking around long enough to catch the scent that we were both his mates.
“Fuck, what do we do?” Gabe paced the office. “No one will be outside. Whoever is in learned long ago to take a break when you visit me in the office.”
“Cool it, Mr. Mayor.” I chuckled. It wasn’t very often I ever saw Gabe appearing so distressed. The last time was probably when Cameron was born. “You have a police deputy down the hall. We can ask if he knows about any strange shifters and he can send a call to stop our mate from leaving town.”
Gabriel stopped pacing and smiled at me. “God, I love you, cowboy.”
“Rightly so, partner.”
I put on my best John Wayne impression. I’ve been doing that impression since I was a kid and watched every movie I could get my hands on.
We went through the doors that led to the police station component of the building. The only person on duty was a deputy who also happened to be the beta to the local wolf pack.
“Good afternoon alpha, alpha mate.” The deputy nodded. My title as alpha mate was actually higher than my rank as beta, but I answered to either.
“Hello, Dave,” I greeted the man. “We’re wondering if you know how many strange shifters we have around town at the moment.”
It was Gabe who answered. “No. It’s complicated but we know our third mate is in town and that he is a shifter. We have scented him and saw him briefly.”
The deputy was clearly confused. “Didn’t he scent you both too, alpha?”
“It’s complicated,” I reiterated. “He was upset,” I conceded.
The deputy nodded. “Sorry, sirs.” He appeared to be in deep thought at the moment. “The only strange shifter that I know of is the brother-in-law of Enforcer Leo Pard. He is the deputy over in Holbrook. Leo told his alpha that a Coyote shifter was visiting the pride. I will send out the call on the paranormals law enforcement radio to keep an eye out for your mate or find out if there are any other strange shifters.”
“Do it,” ordered Gabe. I rubbed his back in large sweeping circles, in an attempt to comfort him.
The man turned to the radio and I noticed that he switched to the station that was privately used by shifter members of local law enforcement.
“Attention, pride and clan law enforcement. Alpha Arcadius and alpha mate, Beta Arcadius, are looking for an unknown male shifter who they have identified as their mate. Stand by for a description. Over.”
Jesus. The man expected a description. Seeing our other mate was a total blur. I remembered muscular shoulders. Dark brown hair and wide brown eyes. That was really it. I could only guess at his height, knowing that the man was below six-foot tall.
Seconds later the radio crackled with someone coming on the line.
“David,” a male voice came over the line, someone who clearly knew the beta well judging from the informal address. “This is Leo. No need to search. I have my brother-in-law, Elijah, here. I have no doubt he is the mate that the clan alpha and beta are searching for. Over.”
Relief washed over me.
The deputy looked over at Gabe for instructions.
“Give me the radio,” Gabe grumbled as he swapped seats. “Enforcer Pard,” he said into the radio’s mouthpiece. “Keep Elijah safe. There was a misunderstanding. Where are you? Xander and I will come see our mate.”
“Of course, alpha, no worries, he is my brother-in-law and it’s in my best interests with my mate that I keep the man safe.” The damn lion chuckled. I did not find any of this remotely funny. “I figured out there was a misunderstanding but you can come on over to the vet surgery.”
Gabe and I rushed to leave the office and get to our mate. I followed my mate to his truck and buckled myself in.
“We need a plan here, Gabe. Elijah is upset. We don’t want to make it worse and somehow piss him off.”
Gabe paused just as he was about to twist the key in the ignition. A grin crept across his face. “We will ask him out on a date.”
I looked at my mate skeptically.
“It’s a perfect idea, Xander.” Gabe relaxed as a plan must have started to take shape in his mind. “We will ask him out on a date to the Halloween party tomorrow night.”
“If he is here to visit his brother, Elijah would probably be going anyway.”
Gabe rolled his eyes at me. “That doesn’t matter. What matters is that he will go as our date.”
“We have to tell Cam about him too. Cam will be at the party for trick or treating. Elijah will have to meet him. That’s like throwing the poor man into the deep end.” I put on a falsely chirpy voice. “Hi, Elijah. We are your two mates and now here is your fourteen-year-old son, too.”
Gabe sighed heavily. “It can’t be that bad. He is our fated mate. Besides, Kit has probably told him about Cam since he was the vet that looked at the damn ferret this morning.”
I conceded that my mate was probably right about the latter point.
“Fine. Let’s go to meet our second mate properly. And we will ask him to be our date at the big clan Halloween party.”
We left the dance floor to get more drinks when Gabriel whispered to Xander and me, standing between us from behind. “What do you think about finding somewhere private?” To make sure we understood him, Gabriel, who had told me to call him Gabe, pressed his very aroused crotch against our asses in turn.
Xander groaned and shuddered. “Where should we go?”
I let out a small moan. “Yes,” I hissed.
Gabe must have had it all figured out because he said without hesitation, “We’ll go to my office.” For my benefit he added, “It’s right across the road.”
“Oh God, yes,” I gasped. Xander palmed my groin.
It seemed like everyone was staring at us as we made our hasty exit.
Both Gabe and Xander took my hands and rushed me across the road. Gabe led us to a side entrance which went to Gabe’s office and thankfully not through the police station part of the building. I knew what was going to happen and I didn’t want to run into any on-duty cops and get embarrassed by being caught in the act, you could say.
Gabe closed the door, locking it firmly behind him and Xander led me to the office.
“God, Eli, I need you now,” Xander groaned. “I need...”
A wicked smile crossed my lips because I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I pushed Xander down onto the couch along the side of the wall. I grabbed Gabe and pushed him down as well.
“Eli...” Gabe reached up for me, but I shook my head.
I made quick work of Gabe’s work jeans. Gabe hissed and lifted his hips to help me. His long, thick and quite frankly, amazing cock sprang from its confines when I yanked down his jeans and underwear.
I looked up to see Xander biting his lower lip.
I grinned at him. “What about you, cowboy? You gonna let me help you there?”
I didn’t wait. I quickly had my mayor and my cowboy sitting there with their hard cocks out. Just seeing them both made my mouth water. I love giving blow jobs and Xander and Gabe looked completely delectable.
“Oh, my mate,” Xander groaned.
“You two, kiss now,” I ordered my mates. I had jerked off the night before thinking about my mates kissing.
As I watched them kiss, I went down on my knees in front of them. I grinned. They hadn’t stopped kissing, so to get their attention I used both hands at the same time and stroked their cocks from root to tip. I applied an extra bit of pressure when I made it to the spongy head. Their cocks were already leaking pre-cum and I was salivating even more.
Gabe and Xander looked at me. The pleasure was written clear on their faces.
And goddamn, everything felt perfect. These magnificent men were my mates.
“You are so fucking hot in that wig and costume,” Gabe growled.
“I see a couple of hot cowboys myself,” I replied sweetly. I then stroked their cocks again, pumping down and then up.
I didn’t wait for any more conversation. There was no need for talk.
First, I took Gabe’s cock in my mouth. I licked at the head and slit of his erection before taking him down my throat. Gabe rocked his hips, thrusting into my mouth. He triggered my gag reflex, but I was able to keep it in check.
Vaguely, I heard my mates’ exclamations of pleasure.
Not wanting to leave Xander out, I paid his cock the same attention. They were different but at the same time equally as awesome as the other. I gave Xander a few extra pumps, just so I could hear his moans. He had his eyes squeezed tightly closed and his head tilted towards the ceiling.
I’d like to think that I had the finesse of a porn star. But I know that that was as far from the truth as possible. I was sloppy, I can admit that, and there was probably saliva everywhere, the same with my mates’ pre-cum. I tried to go between my men, sucking on their cocks. I’m certain they were enjoying it but I was not giving the mind-blowing blow jobs I had imagined in my mind.
“Don’t come, Xander,” I told him.
Xander let out a garbled reply about trying his best. I turned my attention back to Gabe. I played with his balls and began to get down to the serious business of sucking his cock. Gabe tangled his fingers through my wig. He yanked it off and threw it aside, threading his fingers through my hair. I bobbed my head up and down, taking Gabe’s member down my throat. I used my throat muscles to drive him crazy.
Gabe didn’t last much longer. I felt his balls tighten against his body and his cock twitched in my mouth. Knowing that Gabe was so close to coming, I used my tongue to lick the thick vein on the underside of his shaft. I swirled and teased the head of his penis once more. I then sucked him again and moments later, Gabe roared out his orgasm and I felt his hot cum hit the back of my throat. Gabe tasted like a combination of musk, salt and truffle oil.
I allowed his now semi-hard cock to pop out of my mouth. While Gabe was panting, his fingers loosened from my head and I moved to suck Xander’s cock. Xander was holding his cock, gripping the base with lust burning in his eyes.
“Your turn, handsome.”
