When Storm Wishfall is sent on an errand for his alpha, he doesn't expect to discover two young Asian men hiding on a boat in fear for their lives. He definitely isn't expecting one of them to be his mate. After encountering the young men’s captors, the alpha devises a plan to rescue the three other men who were kidnapped along with his mate, Kyoshi, and Kyoshi’s cousin, Keata, and the pack must band together to curtail a human trafficking ring before any more innocent lives are ruined. In the meantime, Kyoshi must come to terms with his new life. Storm searches for a way to convince the cynical human they’re destined to love each other, but something lurking deep inside Kyoshi is forcing its way out. Are these two as different as they believe, or can they find a way to share their lives?
Note: Each book in Lynn Hagen's Brac Pack collection focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order.
A Siren Erotic Romance
Lynn Hagen is a Siren-exclusive author.
5 LIPS: "Stormy Eyes by Lynn Hagen is a powerful read. I found the human trafficking angle to be really heart-wrenching. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be ripped from one's foreign country in the middle of the night to be sold as a human sex slave. Kyoshi and Keata are both very well done characters. They are weary and don't trust easily. I felt even though this was fiction, it really was done realistically. The pace of Ms. Hagen’s writing is not too fast or too slow, which is a credit to her writing abilities. Kyoshi is used to being the stronger of the two cousins. He has a hard time letting anyone else take that role in his life. Storm is a big bad alpha used to protecting what he considers his, so watching him tip toe around his new mate is really cute. He has a heart of gold and it shows." -- Tina, TwoLips Reviews
4.5 NYMPHS: "Stormy Eyes is book five in the Brac Pack series and tells the story of Storm and Kyoshi. While Storm is a character that readers will know well, it is Kyoshi who the readers are meeting for the first time. This is a character that not only matches his mate quite well, but also makes a terrific addition to the circle of mates. The sex between Storm and Kyoshi is, of course hot, but it is the rest of this story that makes this a great read. The interaction between the two men, as well as the rest of the pack members, will leave you laughing more than once. Just wait till you get to the mates party scene or when Kyoshi and Cecil have a tiff. I could not help laughing out loud. When this series first started, I found the first story to be good but a little weak. The author seems to be getting better and better with each new addition. While the books may not be everybody’s cup of tea, those fans of shape-shifter stories, especially the ones in which there is clearly an Alpha in the pairing, will love these stories. The characters are always engaging, whether it is the primary couple in the story or one of the many secondary characters. The author usually throws in a few minor twists to keep the reader entertained and wanting more. Stormy Eyes was no exception to this rule. Enjoy the story; it is definitely one for the keeper shelves." -- Critter Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews
4 CHERRIES: "Ms. Hagen has written another extraordinary edition to her Brac Pack series with Stormy Eyes. She dives right into human trafficking and what it has done to two young Japanese men. In the process of telling this story she also plants seeds for future stories for other members of this pack and the neighboring pack as well. Kyoshi is an extremely cautious character. He takes his responsibilities of caring for his younger cousin to heart and doesn’t want to see any harm come his way. Kyoshi reminded me of an overprotective mom but as you read you learn Keata is all the family he has and he has always looked out for his cousin. It was sweet and touching to read as Kyoshi cut the apron strings to give his cousin the space he needed. Storm, or Stormy Eyes as the mates like to call him, wasn’t expecting to find his mate and reading about these two sparring back and forth was hilarious. Storm is six foot seven with a five foot two mate. Kyoshi may be small but has the temper of a giant. The dialogue between them was well written and very funny; almost like a couple that has been married for years. Kyoshi has no fear when it comes to Storm, only love. As in all the stories so far, the alpha’s mate Cecil seems to find time to get them all into trouble. I have to admit that is always very humorous to read. When all the mates get together, trouble is bound to follow. The story definitely had its serious moments too. The Brac Pack take on the smugglers and that has an interesting outcome. Plus we find something out about Kyoshi that will surprise all readers. If you’re a fellow fan of Ms. Hagen’s Brac series, Stormy Eyes is a must read. She touches on some serious issues and introduces new aspects into this series that is only making it grow and get better with every addition." -- Coreopsis, Whipped Cream Reviews
"For Kyoshi Kia and his cousin Keata life is a daily struggle to keep their heads above water, yet they are basically happy with life in Japan. Happy until the night they are kidnapped, thrown onto a container ship with three other victims and weeks later discover themselves in America about to become sex slaves. Taking a trip to the nearby docks on the orders of Alpha Maverick, though he wishes to be elsewhere, Timber wolf shifter Storm Wishfalls is stunned to find, after years of searching, his mate in a small, distrustful Asian. Everything is stacked against Storm and Kyoshi going through a smooth mating since Storm can’t say that he’s a werewolf and Kyoshi speaks little English. Then there’s the matter of Keata, naïve, innocent and Kyoshi’s responsibility. Storm is determined to overcome any obstacles put in his path to mate with Kyoshi, but does his future mate feel the same? A few simple hurdles, no problem. Fall in love with the Brac Pack in Stormy Eyes, the fifth book in this hot and steamy series. Young and playful humans are paired with wolves over a hundred years old. However, each human has issues to deal with, from drugs to abuse and it is up to their lovers to help them overcome their problems. Author Lynn Hagen manages to skirt the age differences with clever storytelling while dealing with social issues in a positive, loving manner. Stormy Eyes brings a lonely, honorable wolf together with a prickly, cynical victim, and the results are satisfying. Very sexy moments, lighthearted loving, and engaging characters are all hallmarks of the Brac Pack series." -- Lisa, Joyfully Reviewed
Storm smiled and laid his mate down gently, tugging Kyoshi out of the ball he was in. He began at his feet, licking a path between each toe and circling around his ankle. Storm’s tongue licked the back of Kyoshi’s calf and around to his shin. He nipped behind his knee, pulling a moan from Kyoshi. Storm pulled back and started on the other side. When he reached Kyoshi’s thighs, his mate started to spread his legs a little further open. Storm kissed both thighs as he slowly pulled Kyoshi’s underwear off. Kyoshi tensed for a moment, but Storm continued to lick his way around his mate’s legs. Kyoshi relaxed again.
Storm flicked his tongue on Kyoshi’s balls, and his mate’s hips bucked. His tongue explored Kyoshi’s sac, perineum, and his crease. Kyoshi was mewling softly, his hands clenching the sheets. When Storm kissed the head of Kyoshi’s cock, his mate cried out and seed splashed onto his body. “Damn, you’re so responsive.” Storm licked Kyoshi’s come from his belly and chest. He tasted better than the finest wine.
“That was an orgasm, wasn’t it?” Kyoshi panted.
Storm smiled at his mate. “Yes, Kyoshi. You want to feel another one?”
Storm engulfed his cock, swallowing to the root as Kyoshi bucked and pulled at his braid. He fucked Storm’s mouth in a passionate frenzy. Kyoshi came again, crying Storm’s name.
“I want to give you more, mate.” Storm leaned over and grabbed the lube from the side drawer. He stood and pulled his underwear off as he lubed Kyoshi’s hole, trying to decide what position would be the gentlest for the claiming. He decided to lay Kyoshi on his side. Although he wanted to look his mate in his eyes as he accepted him, he had to put Kyoshi’s needs first.
“Push out as I push my finger in, dragonfly.” Kyoshi nodded and Storm slowly breached him. He knew the only way to get Kyoshi through this in as much of a painless way as possible was to find his prostate quickly. He found the gland and stroked it. Kyoshi pushed his hips up as semen shot out again.
“You are the sexiest man I have ever seen.” Storm stretched him for a little while longer before adding a second finger.
“Storm.” Kyoshi called his name in rush of breath.
Storm nodded, adding a third finger very carefully. He crooked his wrist and moved his fingers in a scissor-like motion. Once he felt he’d stretched his mate to his fullest, he removed his hand and lubed his cock.
“I’m going to make love to you now, Kyoshi.”
“Lay on your side, baby.” Kyoshi rolled to his side and waited.
Storm crawled behind him and pulled Kyoshi’s right leg up, laying it over his thigh. “Ready?”
Kyoshi shook his head then nodded it.
“Is that a yes or no?” Storm teased.
“Again, push out as I push in.” Storm pushed the head of his cock past the ring of muscles and stopped, waiting for Kyoshi to adjust.
“Can I move?” Storm was dying, but he locked all his muscles in place. He wasn’t moving an inch until Kyoshi was ready. When Kyoshi nodded, Storm pushed further in.
“Gets much better, dragonfly.” Storm pulled back until only the head of his cock remained then pushed back in further than before. He began a slow rocking with his mate.
“I can take more, Storm.”
Storm quickened his pace, still being gentle. He pulled out and turned Kyoshi to his back. “Wrap your legs around my waist.”
Kyoshi did and Storm slid back in as he pulled Kyoshi’s hips up his thighs. He pulled his mate up into his arms as he grabbed his hips and impaled Kyoshi up and down on his cock. His canines dropped, and his eyes shifted.
“My wolf.” Kyoshi leaned back, baring his neck for Storm.
“Do you accept me as your mate, Kyoshi?”
“Yes, Storm, always.”
Storm sank his teeth into Kyoshi’s neck as his mate cried out once again, hot seed painting Storm’s stomach. He pumped faster as he drank from his mate, tasting a piece of heaven. He felt the ribbons of their life force unwind separately and entwine together, their hearts synchronizing to bind them.
