[Siren Publishing: The Stormy Glenn ManLove Collection: Erotic Alternative Fantasy Paranormal Romance, M/M, HEA]
Nothing in Zack Banning’s life makes sense. Not the head injury that ended his career, and certainly not the sexy dreams he’s been having about a mysterious, blue-eyed stranger who seems to know exactly how to send Zack straight into the flames of ecstasy with every touch. Zack can’t decide what disturbs him more—how much he longs for the dreams to be real or the fact that they feature another man. 
Eljin has spent the last several months frightened and alone. The single bright spot was the tentative connection he forged with Zack, a fellow captive with no memory of their encounter. Desperate to return across the veil but unwilling to leave Zack in danger, Eljin sets out to convince Zack of the miracle that holds them together before the forces conspiring against Eljin’s entire race pull them apart forever.

So good another great book
Nancy Henry
I was really happy thinking this was a new generation set within the Dark Court world, however I read this book when it was first released in 2010 and called Dark Side of the Veil, I was a little upset to realise it was the same book re-released but with a new name and an additional chapter (could have been expanded more, but I have not read it yet). Perhaps this was my error for not checking before buying this book, but maybe this should have been mentioned in the overview of the book.

But I must say I really enjoyed this when I first read it and as with most of my Stormy Glenn books I have re-read it since (just not in the past few years...)





The passion flaming over every inch of his body was scorching his skin, burning him alive. He needed more—more touching, more kissing, more everything. Each seductive caress made him crave the next one. Zack had never desired another person like this in his life.

When the mysterious lover above him licked at his nipple, flames licked along at his body. Zack squirmed, trying to get those luscious lips on his other nipple, groaning gratefully when the man complied.

He pressed his hard cock between silken ass cheeks as the man straddling him leaned forward. It was a place he wanted to be more than he wanted his next breath. He wanted to feel the sweet heat he knew waited for him wrapped around his aching shaft, pumping against him until he passed into oblivion.

“Please,” Zack begged when the man's mouth continued to tease him. He'd beg, plead, whimper…do whatever he needed to do to get what he needed.

The man pulled back, grinning down at him before he settled more closely over Zack's groin. A tight hand grasped Zack's cock, making him suck in his breath. He just might come from that alone.

When the man slowly lowered his body, impaling himself on Zack's cock, Zack didn't know if he would last more than a few minutes, maybe seconds. He was so close to orgasm he could almost taste it. His entire body tingled on the edge of ecstasy.

“Oh fuck!” Zack cried out when the man finally settled down all the way. His cock was so far inside the man, Zack wasn't sure where he ended and his beautiful rolled his eyes back in his head, overcome with elation unlike anything he'd ever experienced with any of his previous sexual partners.

Each thrust was like being squeezed in molten lava. Strong muscles gripped Zack's cock and he doubted he'd have to move at all. The man could just massage him to orgasm. It was exquisite.

The man leaned over him until they were nose to nose. Vivid azure-blue eyes stared down at him, brimming with tenderness and passion. Zack couldn't look away, not even when the man lowered his mouth and kissed him.

Lost in the sweetest flavor he'd ever tasted, Zack barely felt the small nip of teeth until he tasted a light, coppery flavor in his mouth. His eyes widened in shock as he heard the man's voice in his head while their mouths were still connected.

“My leannan,” the man whispered into his mind, “come for me, my beautiful leannan. Give me your life, your love, your forever, as I give you mine.”

Instantly, Zack stiffened as every nerve ending in his body exploded at the same time. Pleasure shot through him and erupted inside of him. Zack roared as he came, filling the man above him with every last drop he had to give.

He distantly heard the man cry out as hot wetness splattered across his abdomen but he was too far gone to acknowledge it. He floated in a euphoric haze of lust and desire. Zack opened his eyes and looked up at the flushed face of the man who'd just rocked his world.

Sad, azure-blue eyes stared back at him as two little words filtered into his mind right before Zack faded off...

I'm sorry.

Zack Banning jerked up on a sharp inhale of breath. He pressed his hand to his chest to calm his racing heart, and then grimaced when it came away wet. He'd had that dream again, the one with the blue eyed man, and he'd come all over himself.

He groaned as he dropped back to the mattress. His sex drive was totally non-existent except in his dreams, and he was dreaming about some guy he didn't know. He was dreaming about a guy.

Zack wasn't sure what freaked him out more.

He wasn't gay. He didn't do guys. And yet, the only time he seemed to get aroused lately was in his dreams with a guy he couldn't even remember. Not even the cute girl down at the bar had been able to get a perk out of his dick, and three months ago, he would have been all over her. Now, nada. Nothing.

On the other hand, no other guys seemed to be doing it for him either. Just the blue eyed beauty in his dreams.

Zack closed his eyes and tried to go back to sleep, but the second he started to fade off, those damned blue eyes slid into his mind. His cock perked up. His heart did not. In fact, it actually kind of hurt, and he didn't understand that at all.

Zack sighed as he rolled out of bed and headed for the shower. If he wasn't going to be able to go back to sleep, he was going to find the closest bar and drown himself in something cheap. Unfortunately, nowadays, that meant something cheap from a bottle, and not a girl.




As Zack held Eljin he began to notice the softness of the man's curves, the sweet smell of his silky skin. Each inhale brought more of Eljin's sweet scent into his body until his cock ached with a need to have the man's naked body pressed against his.


When Eljin tilted his head back, they were nearly nose-to-nose. Zack stared at Eljin's lush mouth. His cock jerked when Eljin licked his lips. He looked up into Eljin's eyes then back down to his lips again. His heart beat faster.

“Eljin,” he murmured again, not sure if he wanted to warn the man off or plead with him to come closer.

Eljin took the decision out of his hands by leaning up and kissing him. Zack lay there stunned until Eljin pulled away, sadness making his face pale. Zack couldn't have that. He cupped his hand around the nape of Eljin's neck and pulled the man back into the kiss.

He tasted so sweet, so soft. Zack groaned. He never felt such desire before, at least not that he could remember. His hands trembled as he moved them, one caressing Eljin's cheek, the other running up and down Eljin's back as he pulled the man closer.

Eljin's body pressed against his was heaven on earth. He stroked his hand down Eljin's back to his hip then around the perfect curve of his ass. He gently grabbed his thigh and pulled it up over his hip until their cocks met, mashing together.

A sense of urgency drove him. He needed more. Grabbing the hem of Eljin's shirt, he worked it up the man's lean chest then over his head. Eljin's groan of protest turned into a cry of ecstasy when he started nibbling along his jaw line then down to his neck.

When Eljin started yanking on his shirt, Zack leaned up far enough to whip it over his head. He tossed it across the room before lying back down. He immediately pressed his hands against Eljin's skin.

Every time his gaze met Eljin's, his heart turned over in response. His body was inflamed, burning. He stroked his hand over Eljin's back again, moving down until he encountered the waistband of Eljin's pants.

Zack leaned back and took a moment to look into Eljin's eyes before pushing his hand under the material, instantly cupping a softly rounded butt cheek in his hand. Eljin's eyes widened, growing darker, but he didn't protest. Instead, he pressed into the caress.

Eljin brought his leg back over Zack's hip, opening himself up to Zack's questing fingers. Zack watched Eljin's passion-flushed face carefully as he moved his fingers down between the two cheeks, grazing the man's puckered flesh. Eljin's body stiffened before humping wildly against Zack's seeking fingers.

“Zack.” Eljin moaned, his hand digging into the flesh of Zack's shoulder. When his head dropped back against the pillow, his throat muscles arched. Eljin was the most beautiful thing he'd ever seen.

He leaned forward and licked from Eljin's collarbone up to his chin and then across his plush lips. Eljin's tongue came out to war with his. It was a battle for dominance until Eljin finally surrendered with a deep sigh and allowed Zack into his mouth. Zack delved in, licking and sucking as he claimed Eljin's mouth for himself.

As he brushed his finger across Eljin's tight hole again, Zack realized he needed some sort of lube. He might not remember having sex with Eljin, but he'd had watched enough videos to know he needed something to smooth the way.

He broke away from Eljin and scanned the room, his gaze finally settling on a small bottle of body lotion sitting on the nightstand next to the brush Eljin had been using. He reached over and grabbed the bottle, squirted a fair amount out onto his fingers then dropped the bottle on the bed.

Eljin was panting when Zack turned back to him, the knowledge of what was coming clear in his eyes. Zack moved his hand back beneath the waistband of Eljin's jogging pants and down toward the tight little hole he wanted into.

As he started pushing his finger in, he claimed Eljin's lips once again, swallowing the man's deep cry as his ass was breached. Zack paused, afraid he'd hurt him, until the man pushed back against him. Tight heat enveloped his finger.

Zack took Eljin's reaction as permission to continue and began thrusting his finger in and out. He was a little surprised at how much Eljin seemed to want this, how much his body seemed to want it.

Every time he pushed his finger in, it was swallowed right up as if Eljin's body craved his touch. It made Zack's breathe hitch, his cock throb. He wanted Eljin's body to swallow his cock in just the same manner.

Zack added a second finger to the first, amazed when Eljin's body readily accepted it. After a few thrusts, he added another. This one was also sucked right in. Zack started to tremble as he fought for control.

He wanted to pin Eljin to the mattress and fuck him until they both passed out but he knew he needed to be gentle. Eljin was very fine-boned and delicate. Zack could seriously hurt him if he gave in to the deep passion burning through his body. He also needed to consider the baby Eljin carried. They both needed his gentle care, not a lust-filled beast.
