[Siren LoveXtreme Forever ManLove: Erotic Alternative Fantasy Ménage Romance, M/M/M/M/M/M/M/M, demons]

Hex and his six demon warriors escaped the depths of Tartarus under Hades's watchful eye to live among the mortals in the Top World. The Oracle has prophesized an epic battle to come—a war between good and evil that will test the warriors as never before. When Echo arrives on their doorstep, cold, naked, and hungry, they immediately realize he is their mate, and the prophesized “heart” that beats between them. Echo may be the ultimate weapon in the war, but he’s also a spitfire, and he instantly turns their world upside down. If fighting an angry god weren’t enough, the warriors learn Echo has escaped from a secret lab hidden away in the mountains, and it isn’t long before trouble comes looking for them. Can the demons keep their new mate safe when it seems the entire world—and the Underworld—is against them?

This was a great start to the series. Initially I thought a half dozen other men would be all about sex. I was so wrong! You fall in love with each man for different reasons and the way Echo was treated was perfect. Can't wait to read the next one.

4 DELIGHTFUL DIVAS: "At first I wasn’t sure how things were going to be between all eight characters, but I was pleasantly surprised with Dark Devotion, book one of the Fatefully Yours series by Gabrielle Evans. Hex and the other six demon warriors have been together forever as not only companions but also lovers. Each of the men have their own special ability and place within the group. They also share a dream from the Oracle who speaks to them in riddles of the war to come. Echo has escaped from a life in a secret lab. It was all he knew until he started having his own dreams from the Oracle. She helps him to escape and leads him to his seven sexy protectors. Finding out these men are demons is a little hard to accept, at first. Finding out he’s mated to all of them is easier. The road to love is never easy but throw together eight men who are destined to be part of an epic battle and it’s an uphill climb through the depths of Tartarus itself. Ms. Evans has created an intriguing mythos pulled from the depths of Greek mythology. Dark Devotion is definitely a book I would recommend and hope the remainder of the series lives up to this introduction." -- Samhain Queene, Dark Divas Reviews

4 STARS: "In the debut novel for the Fatefully Yours series, Gabrielle Evans introduces us to Hex and his six lovers. These men, or demons, escaped from Tartarus over a thousand years ago and have been living together topside ever since. The Oracle has prophesized that a great war is coming and they will each be tested, if they should fail they will be sent back to Tartarus. When they find a man lying on their doorstep close to death, they realize that he is their mate and "the heart" the Oracle mentioned in her prophesy. Echo, as they name him, has escaped from a government testing facility where he has been held since birth because of certain abilities that he possesses. I have to be honest, when I first saw that it was going to be 8 men in a relationship I thought it would be all sex and no substance. Well shame on me because I have read enough of Ms. Evans books that I should have known it would be so much more than that. That's not to say there isn't sex because let's face it, with 8 men there is going to be sex! But with it you get a unique story with well thought out characters and a story line that is fast paced and well written. I found myself falling for these characters quickly and understood their personality traits, which for the length of the book and the number of players could have been lacking. Ms. Evans does a great job of giving each of the men their own voice and it never felt overwhelming. I love when the big alpha male can kick ass and then turn into a total marshmallow when it comes to their mate. The respect that all of the men have for each other comes across very strong and while they may not admit how they feel towards one another, you can feel it in the way they treat each other. DARK DEVOTION is a strong first novel for this series and I find myself ready to see what happens next with Echo and his band of merry men!" -- Tyra, The Romance Reviews

"Long ago the seven escaped from the brutal depths of Tartarus. Hex and his six demon warriors hide in plain sight amongst the humans on Earth, hiding their individual powers and their demon selves from everyone else. Through their dreams they are visited by The Oracle who tells them of a coming battle and of the arrival of their mate. For three days and nights he ran for his life. Cold during the day, freezing at night, and starving, all the time he knows that he’s being chased, hunted down. There is no way that he will let them take him back to the facility to live as a prisoner, never able to live his own life. He doesn’t even have a name. The warriors are stunned when a small nude, practically frozen human scratches at their door begging to be let in. They name him Echo after healing his injuries, comforting him, and introducing themselves. It seems that The Oracle has also been in contact with Echo though his dreams with her are vastly different. The clock is ticking down on her prophecy for the demon warriors and Echo. They will need to spill all their secrets and bond before they can be strong enough to conquer what is coming. Defeat is not an option because failure will mean an eternity in Hell for them all… Stunning and unique, Dark Devotion will thrill readers. This is an exciting new series with complex characters, sinfully hot sexual situations and an intriguing plotline that will run throughout all the Fatefully Yours books. Dark Devotion offers a slick story filled with drama, suspense, and seemingly strong characters whose dark sides explode with emotional intensity. Echo is the catalyst and pulls the tale into the realm of believable with gutsy results. Definitely the start of something special, Dark Devotion isn’t to be missed." -- Lisa, Joyfully Reviewed

Excerpt

ADULT EXCERPT

 

“I want you to claim me,” Echo blurted. There. That was as close as he could come to proclaiming his feelings for the time being.

The room went silent but for the voices on the television. Everyone stared at him, frozen in place. “Someone please say something,” Echo whispered.

“Mine,” Hex growled.

“Ours,” Myst echoed in the same guttural tone as he hugged Echo close.

“So, how does this work? You just bite me, or what?”

“Yes and no.” Hex looked a little uncomfortable. “We bite you during sex.”

Electricity raced through Echo’s body, pooling in his balls and causing his cock to swell rapidly. “Please,” he begged. It had been weeks since anyone had touched him sexually. He couldn’t even count the number of cold showers taken or marathon jack-off sessions alone in his room. Another thought occurred to him, and he arched his back, panting at the idea. “Can I watch, too?”

Groans went around the circle, and clothes began flying as the warriors stripped quickly. Bottles of lube were pulled from the strangest places—couch cushions, behind the television, and even one from beneath the coffee table.

Hex and Myst worked together, quickly removing Echo’s pajama pants before Hex lifted him into his lap so that Echo’s back pressed against his chest. Myst moved to the floor between Hex’s legs, spreading Echo’s thighs so that his knees rested on the outside of Hex’s.

“How many times can you come, baby?” Hex whispered in his ear as his hand roamed over Echo’s chest.

Echo gulped audibly. “I–I don’t know.”

“Let’s go with four. Can you come four times for us?”

Echo didn’t know, but he’d sure as hell try. In answer, he lifted his arm over his head, tangling his fingers in Hex’s hair as he turned to pull the man into a devouring kiss. He heard the snick of a bottle cap, and then slick fingers found his hungry opening, caressing the fluttering muscles before one thick finger pushed inside.

Moaning into Hex’s mouth, Echo rocked against the digit, loving the slight burn and the fullness inside his ass. “More,” he mumbled around Hex’s lips.

Myst complied, slipping another finger into his eager hole, pumping in and out as he worked quickly to stretch him. “How much experience do you have?”

“I’m not a virgin,” Echo answered. That’s as far as he was willing to travel into the conversation just then.

Myst seemed to get it because he nodded once and pushed another finger into Echo’s ass, rising up on his knees to claim Echo’s mouth. Hex growled, his chest vibrating beneath Echo’s back. “Need you now.”

“Yes,” Echo breathed as Hex lifted him, lining up the head of his thick cock, then slowly lowered him over it. Echo breathed through the slight pinch of pain, relaxing his body until he was fully seated.

“Fuck,” Hex hissed. “Damn, you’re tight, baby.”

“Been a while,” Echo mumbled distractedly. Myst nibbled up the inside of his thigh as his long fingers massaged Echo’s tight sac.

Hex palmed his aching cock, stroking him firmly as his teeth grazed along the side of Echo’s neck. “Watch them, baby. See how beautiful they are together.” His other hand gripped Echo’s hip, encouraging him to rock back and forth on the huge prick buried inside his ass.

From the corner of his eye, he saw Syx and Vapre move to the floor to join the others, all five kissing, touching, licking, and biting.

Myst’s mouth replaced his fingers, and he laved and sucked at Echo’s balls, rolling them around in his mouth and moaning. Echo groaned and panted, the sensations overwhelming him as he watched the five men move together on the floor.

Fiero had Onyx on his knees, driving into him from behind as his fingers dug into the man’s hips. Syx kneeled in front of them, thrusting his cock into Onyx’s mouth as Eyce bent Vapre over the arm of the love seat and pounded into his ass with wild abandon.

Grunts, groans, growls, and moans filled the room, and Echo couldn’t hold back any longer. Hex was right. They were gorgeous together. He’d never seen anything so erotic in his life. Hex gave a hard thrust just as Myst wrapped his lips around Echo’s pulsing shaft, pushing his prick to the back of Myst’s throat.
