[Siren Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, shape-shifters]
The Gathering is called. The spell is cast. There is no escaping the Midnight Matings.
When Ifan Vashnikov is summoned to the Great Gathering and learns of the plan set up by UPAC, he decides he'd rather go feral than be forced to take a mate. Before he can voice his decision to the elders, he finds himself mated.
But his mating is not the usual mating. For one, he didn't drink the spiked champagne like everyone else, so he isn't in heat. Two, his mate is being protected for his own safety. Misha is a dreamwalker, the most powerful dreamwalker in over a thousand years. Because of that, he is being hunted. People want to use his powers for evil.
Misha just wants to settle down somewhere quiet with his dream mate. When he's rescued and taken to the UPAC headquarters, he finally meets the man he has been sharing dreams with for over a year—the man he fell in love with—but Ifan doesn't seem to know him. When danger comes, Misha doesn't know whether to turn to Ifan or run for his life.
A Siren Erotic Romance
5 CHERRIES: "Love has a strange way of finding us when we are not looking for it. Ifan and Misha's story is no exception. Misha had spent his whole life being used and abused. He is one of those characters you cannot wait to see get a happily ever after because they are just so deserving. His only salvation through of the torment was dreams of his mate. I cannot say I would have the same outlook on life he did. Even though he had every right to have a chip on his shoulder, he still managed to try to see the good in the world. It would have been completely understandable if he never trusted anyone again, yet he not only trusts Ifan, he finds it in his heart to trust a few other folks as well. Ifan is my kind of man. Ever the recluse, he thought he had everything he needed in the world, until he met Misha. Being a very private homebody myself, I could completely understand Ifan's reluctance to take a mate. While I understand his need to be on his own, I would not mind being stuck with him for a few days or weeks in a cabin because he is one attractive kitty. Even if his looks did not attract me, his solitary alpha personality would certainly do the trick. The conflict really helped move the story forward. It completely enthralled me from beginning to end and left me wanting more. As usual with Stormy Glenn books, I found myself up way past my bedtime saying to myself "just one more chapter", then picked up the story as soon as I woke up in the morning. It was over way too soon and I cannot wait for the next installment of the Midnight Mating Series." -- Peppermint, Whipped Cream Reviews
5 CUPS: "Ifan Vashnikov hates being around people and prefers his cabin in the woods. His solitary existence is enough until he is summoned to a meeting that will change his life. Misha has been mistreated his whole life by a greedy, abusive and manipulative father. He escapes to find the man of his dreams who is now his mate. The spell is cast and everyone must get on board or die. Ifan and Misha have a few hurdles to overcome, the least of which is keeping Misha safe and out of the hands of his father. I love White Paws and A Dream as well as the entire Midnight Matings series. The characters are sexy and the romance is so erotic and moves the reader to believe in the paranormal world. Ifan and Misha, separately, are interesting and well rounded characters, but together they make for an amazing duo the reader cheers for. Stormy Glenn once again writes a story to entertain the reader and to pull them into a world they will never want to leave. I highly recommend White Paws and A Dream as well as the Midnight Matings world." -- Delane, Coffee Time Romance Reviews
4 NYMPHS: "White Paws and a Dream is release eight in the Midnight Matings series and is by Stormy Glenn. It's a much darker and more serious tale than any of the other books, which took me by surprise. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it and Ms. Glenn has again wrote a well plotted, smooth flowing and entertaining story but this one had little to even smile about. Misha's life is hard. He's been emotionally and physically abused by his power-hungry father for years and then the Elders turn around and assign him a mate. It makes for a tense and painful introduction between Ifan and Misha. Misha is very interesting and vastly different from others in the series, so far. He's the first human mate and the first with an ability so out of the mainstream in the paranormal world. I loved the creativity of this selection and putting him with the protective and isolationist Ifan worked perfectly. He's a dominant guy others don't want to mess with since his white tiger is uber-protective. Secondary characters are numerous and weave in and out of the story. I liked Brodelyn, the UPAC Historican that showed up at important spots along the way and I'd like to see him again. Then there was the villain and his minion. The scenes involving these two unsavory individuals are handled well - filled with action and result in a satisfying ending." -- Dragon Minx, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"Invitee’s to this year’s Great Gathering are stunned speechless when the Elders announce they’ve cast a spell to ensure everyone there will search out a mate within 24 hours or go feral. They must also chose a mate from another group, whether it be a coven, pack, or something else. A very rare white Siberian tiger shifter, Ifan Vashnikov normally doesn’t bother with UPAC gatherings, however, a personal invitation brings him to this one. Ifan is quite content to lead a lonely life and doesn’t suffer fools well even on a good day. Standing in the ballroom listening to the Elders edict, Ifan mulls over his choices and decides he’d rather die than take a mate. It seems that the Elders have special plans in motion for Ifan. They’ve already picked out a particular mate for him because they feel that Ifan is the only person capable of keeping a uniquely gifted human safe. The human, Mikhail or Misha as Ifan insists on calling him is a dream walker. In fact, Misha is the most powerful dream walker born in over a thousand years and he needs to be protected from those who would exploit his gift. Ifan was ready to die rather than mate, yet once he meets Misha he would die to protect him from harm. A sweet and tender Midnight Matings tale with a hint of intrigue, White Paws and A Dream showcases enchanting characters and another unique storyline in this series. Ifan prefers his solitude and peaceful existence, something Misha sorely needs in his life. They balance each other out perfectly. Their romance takes a sharp turn into danger which acts as an interesting catalyst in the plot. White Paws and A Dream has hot loving, lively characters and enough drama to keep readers engaged in their story." -- Lisa, Joyfully Reviewed
Misha reached over and unbuttoned Ifan’s pants. Ifan’s hard cock popped out before Misha got the zipper all the way down. Ifan wasn’t in the least bit surprised he had gone from concerned to horny in the blink of an eye. He was pretty sure he had been more aroused in the last week than he had been in the last hundred years. Misha seemed to have the effect on him.
“Oh fuck!” Ifan groaned when Misha leaned over and started licking the tip of his cock. He spread his arms out along the back of the bench seat and gripped the soft leather in his hands. “No one sucks cock like you do, Misha.”
Misha’s moan vibrated down Ifan’s cock. Damn, that was just…damn. Misha’s lips were soft and plush and wrapped around his cock with just the right amount of pressure to give Ifan the most pleasure possible. That Misha could swallow him down to the root was just an added bonus—a huge, mind-numbing bonus.
When Misha crawled up to kneel on the bench seat, Ifan’s eyes moved along the man’s lithe body until they landed on his tight, rounded ass. Misha really had a fantastic ass. Ifan liked looking at it even when he wasn’t balls deep inside of it. It was just the perfect ass.
It also begged to be caressed. Ifan leaned sideways and reached out to run his hand over the softly rounded curves. Misha shuddered. Ifan chuckled when Misha pushed his ass up into the air and spread his legs. He knew an invitation when he saw one.
Ifan followed the seam in Misha’s pants down to the crack of his ass. The harder he pressed against the seam, the harder Misha sucked on his cock. When Ifan’s hand moved farther down and gently squeezed the man’s balls through the soft fabric of his pants, Misha started moaning.
Ifan felt Misha fumbling around for a moment and then suddenly, the man’s pants loosened and slid down, bunching around his thighs. Ifan chuckled and started stroking the naked flesh revealed to him.
“You have a very nice ass, Misha.” Ifan quickly licked his fingers then stroked them down the crack of Misha’s ass again until he reached a small, quivering circle of muscles. He just circled the small hole with his fingers. “Do you like that, Misha?”
Misha started moaning and didn’t stop. The more Ifan touched him, the louder Misha became. Ifan groaned and closed his eyes, letting his head drop back against the seat again. Misha was going wild on his cock—licking and sucking and swallowing.
Ifan felt like the top of his head was going to blow off, both of them. He needed a minute to breathe, or the show was going to be over in a matter of seconds. He gently patted Misha’s rounded ass cheek.
“Baby, I need the lube out of the glove box.” Ifan almost passed out when Misha shook his head, refusing to let go of the cock in his mouth. The pleasure was exquisite, but he wanted Misha to feel the same pleasure he was. “I can’t put my fingers in your ass without lube.”
Misha’s moan of protest almost undid Ifan. Only by biting his lip did he keep from groaning when Misha suddenly sat up and turned toward the glove box. When Misha bent over to get the lube, Ifan got as good look at the man’s sexy ass.
Ifan grabbed Misha by the hips before he could turn around. He held him in place and scooted over. When he couldn’t get any further over, he pushed Misha’s pants down his legs until one was free. Then he moved over until he was between the man’s legs, Misha kneeling on the seat over the top of him.
“Lube,” Ifan said, holding his hand out. He chuckled when it was quickly slapped into his hand. Ifan popped the top and slicked up his fingers. He wiped a generous amount on his cock then dribbled more down the crack of Misha’s ass.
“Should we be doing this?” Misha whispered.
“Oh, hell yes!” Ifan pushed a lubed finger into Misha’s ass. He dropped the lube on the seat and grabbed Misha’s hip with the other hand when the man’s legs began to shake. “Stay on your knees, baby. Lean against the dashboard if you have to.”
Misha leaned forward, giving Ifan a better view and more room to work. He could actually see his finger move in and out of Misha’s tight hole. He couldn’t wait to feel his cock slide into the same hole.
Ifan carefully inserted a second finger, watching with delight as Misha’s ass just sucked him right in. He curved his fingers, searching. His fingers grazed the small walnut-sized gland he was looking for, and Misha’s hips shot forward as the man cried out.
Misha started rocking back and forth. Ifan waited several moments until he felt the man’s tight circle of muscles start to loosen, and then he added a third finger. Misha’s cries grew louder, filling the small cab of the truck. Ifan continued to push his fingers in and out of Misha’s ass until he couldn’t take the wait any longer. He needed to be inside of his mate.
Ifan pulled his fingers free and grabbed Misha’s hips. He pulled his mate back and slowly lowered him down until the head of his cock popped into Misha’s ass. Ifan squeezed his eyes closed and savored every inch that slid into Misha. There just wasn’t anything in the world that felt so damn good.
When Misha’s body rested fully down on him and his cock wouldn’t slide in any more, Ifan opened his eyes. He pulled Misha back until the man’s head rested on his shoulder. He reached around and grabbed Misha’s cock in his hand and started stroking him.
