A Siren Erotic Romance
4 ANGELS: "I can't image hiding and living in fear like Devon and his pack, but Devon did everything he could to keep them safe. If was understandable how he would move heaven and earth to get Erik back and it was kind of funny that if the hunters had not taken Erik, neither he or Devon would have found their mates. It must have been unreal for Brandon, a hunter, to find he was mated to Eric, but the lengths he went through to keep him safe were incredible. The idea of individuals secretly looking for and killing wolves for no other reason than they felt they were just animals was very sad. This just proves that prejudice under any circumstances is unacceptable. It was inspiring how Devon and Aiden could look beyond the situation at hand to the instinctive feelings they were experiencing." -- Teresa, Fallen Angel Reviews
Aiden jolted up in bed when he heard a loud crash. He looked over to the clock and saw that it was only a little past midnight. His dad had said Peter would be coming by to check on him, and Aiden assumed the older man stopped by to make sure everything was safe and sound and that Aiden had arrived home all right.
Most people might be frightened by this, but over the years his father had his friends check in on him and his mother if he were out of town at a veterinarian seminar. So Peter coming by late at night wasn’t that unusual.
Aiden pushed aside his blankets and sat up. He figured it best to go and check on Peter. A slight shiver rolled down his spine as the cool air hit his bed-warmed body.
Turning the knob on his door he stepped into the hallway. He heard another sound but was uncertain of what it had been. It almost sounded like a growl. Aiden gave his head a good shake. His family didn’t have a dog and neither did Peter. Sleepiness must be causing him to be hearing things.
As Aiden made his way down the stairs, he flipped on the entryway light. Not paying attention, he walked past his father’s office and tripped on something. Aiden lost his balance and fell to the floor. He braced the impact on his palms. The jolt sent a stinging pain up his arms. Pushing himself up and onto his knees, he looked behind him to see what caused his fall.
“What the hell?” Aiden scooted back on his butt until he hit the far wall. Peter lay on the floor with a gash above his left eyebrow. If it wasn’t for the rise and fall of his chest, Aiden would have thought the other man dead.
The sound of footsteps caused his stomach to roll. Panic caused his palms to sweat and his hands to shake. Bile rose in his throat, and he thought he would be sick right there on the soft taupe carpet. His mother would be so pissed at him if he ruined it.
“Aw, look what we have here.”
Aiden jumped at the sound of an unfamiliar voice and bumped his head against the wall. Two very large men came into view. One had long blond hair, and the other had short black hair. The blond one eyed him with malice, and Aiden could feel his body tremble.
The blond man’s eyes jumped to Aiden’s face then to the wall then back again. “You’ve got to be fucking kidding me.” He let out a whoop. “Talk about hitting the motherfucking lottery.”
They strode slowly over to Aiden. He tried get away, but the hard wall at his back wouldn’t allow it. He was trapped.
“What are you talking about, Viktor?” the man with the black hair asked.
Viktor knelt down in front of Aiden. His thick legs looked like tree trunks this close up. Stubble shaded Viktor’s jaw, and his cold blue eyes looked at Aiden menacingly.
Without looking away from Aiden, Viktor pointed to his father’s office.
Aiden didn’t have to look to know what the man was referring to. This past summer before he left for school his mother insisted on doing a family portrait. And the large photo hung over the fireplace in his father’s office.
“It looks like we got some leverage now.” Viktor looked over his shoulder. “Don’t you think, Josef?”
Aiden looked over Viktor’s shoulder and watched as Josef looked from the picture then back to him. “Well, Devon did say do what we had to do.” He shrugged his shoulders. “Maybe pretty boy here knows where they’re keeping Erik.”
Aiden’s head darted between the two men. “I…I…” His jaw worked up and down, and his throat tried to form words, but his terror blocked their path out of his mouth. He tried his best to swallow around the dry lump in his throat. “I don’t know what you are talking about. Who’s Erik?”
Viktor laughed harshly and bent down until he was nose to nose with Aiden. “Like you don’t know.” He grabbed Aiden around the neck and stood up, taking Aiden with him.
His feet dangled in the air as the man held him in a death grip. Aiden clawed at the man’s hand. He couldn’t breathe. Viktor’s fingers clamped down tight on his windpipe, and the lack of oxygen caused Aiden’s vision to become blurred.
Who’s Erik? And who are these men? Aiden’s analytical mind tried to comprehend the situation, but he kept drawing a blank. Probably from fear and the lack of air reaching Aiden’s lungs.
“Hey, take it easy there, Viktor.” Josef stepped up beside his friend. “If you kill him we lose what little chance we have of finding Erik. Plus Devon will kill you.”
The grip on Aiden’s neck loosened, and his feet dropped back to the floor. Gulp after gulp of air filled his lungs, pushing out the fuzziness from lack of oxygen. Spots danced in his line of vision. Aiden rubbed at his neck as he glanced out of the corner of his eyes, letting his hair shield his face. He lived in this house for years, but for the life of him he couldn’t think of the best escape route.
“Good point. But we need to get him out of here without drawing any attention.”
Aiden was just about to ask what he meant when a meaty fist barreled toward his face. The last thing he remembered was praying his blood wouldn’t stain his mother’s carpet.
Aiden pulled one hand free and placed a finger under Devon’s chin lifting up until the man met his eyes. “I don’t blame you.” Aiden’s voice trailed off. Devon was a wolf and his father a hunter, and apparently he hunted these beings and kidnapped them, but for what? Devon wasn’t some ravenous beast when in wolf form, so why would his dad waste his time?
“Thank you.” Devon brushed a kiss across his lips, and Aiden sighed into the moistness of Devon’s mouth. With his hands free, Aiden was finally able to wrap his arms around Devon’s shoulders. The kiss deepened, and Devon tugged him closer. Aiden dug his fingers into the hard muscle lining Devon’s shoulder, trying to climb the man. Devon worked his thigh between Aiden’s, and he started to rub his hardness on the firm muscle.
His orgasm played right beneath the surface of his skin. Sweat broke out across his face, and he pushed harder against Devon’s leg. The rough, dry grind just added to his enjoyment. A bolt of electricity shot through his body and out his dick. Gooey warmth wetted the front of his pants, and he panted for breath as his body trembled out of control.
Aiden took several deep breaths. He buried his head into Devon’s chest, too embarrassed to look at the man who just made him come so hard he saw stars.
“Hey what’s wrong, hon?” Devon took a step back, trying to get Aiden to look at him.
“I’m mortified,” Aiden mumbled. “I’ve never done anything like this before, and it was over before it even began.” He pouted, but he couldn’t help it. He’d kissed a few guys but that was it.
“You’ve never done this or anything before?” Devon asked, his fingers tightening on Aiden’s arms.
“Nothing.” Aiden peeked up at Devon through his bangs. “I’ve just never got around to you know.” He gestured with his hands, unable to vocalize his thoughts.
“Sex.” A smile lit up Devon’s face like a firecracker.
“It’s not funny.” Aiden smacked at Devon’s bare chest. “It’s a big deal to me. I wanted to wait until I met someone special.”
Devon placed both hands on his face, urging Aiden to look at him. “I’m glad you waited for me.”
Devon dropped a kiss to Aiden’s lips. Any protest that he should have been making fell silent. Devon walked him backward until the back of Aiden’s legs hit the mattress. They stumbled back and fell onto the soft bed. Aiden could feel his cock starting to stir again as Devon’s heated body moved over his.
One more searing kiss to his mouth then Devon moved lower, stopping to tease Aiden’s pebbled nipples. Aiden gasped and squirmed at the contact. He never realized how sensitive his nipples were before. It was as if a direct line ran from his nipples to his cock, causing it to fill and lie hard against his stomach.
Aiden fisted his hands in the blanket by his head, unsure what to do. His body wanted Devon to take that luscious mouth lower until it wrapped around his dick. Aiden had never gotten this far before, but he’d seen enough porn to know what would happened next, and he wanted Devon to kiss his throbbing shaft.
“Dear God, Devon,” Aiden cried out.
Devon chuckled against his stomach as he worked his way down. “For a virgin, you’re awfully loud.”
Aiden didn’t respond, he just thrust his hips upward to rub his cock against any part of Devon’s body he could find. Devon’s tongue trailed a wet line down his stomach and traced around his navel. He placed openmouthed kisses along the waist of Aiden’s pants then sat back on his haunches. Aiden’s abdomen quivered as Devon ran his fingertips across his stomach before he worked his fingers underneath the material and pulled Aiden’s pants down. Devon stared at him with an evil grin on his lips as he yanked his pants the rest of the way off.
He felt exposed and moved to cover his erect cock. Devon pushed his hands away and moved to hover over him. “Don’t hide from me.” He kissed Aiden’s neck. “You have the most stunning body I’ve ever seen.”
“You’re just saying that.” Aiden gasped as Devon sucked a mark on his neck. All the air in his lungs rushed out when Devon lowered his body to lie on top of his. The heavy, hot length of his cock burned against his own.
“Do you still think I’m just trying to be nice?” Devon circled his hips for good measure, smearing his pre-cum along Aiden’s length.
“Devon,” Aiden moaned as he grabbed for purchase on Devon’s shoulders. “Make love to me.”
Aiden’s body tensed as Devon ran the back of his fingers down the length of his cock then began to tease the skin behind his balls. This was it. For the first time in his life he was about to let another man enter his body. He was excited, but doubt started to plague his mind. Aiden wanted Devon in the worst way but he didn’t want to be tossed aside afterwards or once Devon got his brother back.
“Where did you go?” Devon asked.
“I…I…” Aiden couldn’t find the words to explain. He didn’t want to insult Devon by assuming what they were about to do meant more than it really did. “I’m fine. Let’s just do this.” He ran his fingers through Devon’s hair and tugged him down, kissing him long and hard. Aiden threw caution to the wind and turned himself completely over to Devon, heart and soul. He could always pick the pieces of his broken heart up after Devon left him because eventually he would. Devon never promised him anything beyond tonight.
