Exclusive Excerpt from Talos

by A.G. Carothers

Bayne sat on the surprisingly comfortable padded wooden bench in one of the holding rooms below the Colosseum. His two days in the Colosseum were nothing like he had been prepared for. The city wasn’t like he had been told either. He hadn’t seen much of the human slums when they were smuggled in by fellow THRUST members who lived in the city, so he couldn’t attest to the validity of how run down and filthy he was told they were.

The first sight of the Colosseum had taken his breath. It was larger than he had imagined and shone brightly against the modern buildings around it. Bayne had had to crane his neck back to take in the whole structure. Stone statues decorated arches in the upper levels. Bayne had touched an outside column unbelieving that such a structure could exist amongst the steel and glass world around it.

When he’d entered the Colosseum with the other humans who sought out a chance to be transformed into a monster, he expected to be thrown into a cell and wait until they threw them all in the pit for the vamps’ entertainment. Nothing like that happened. They had been screened one by one, and Bayne thought his mission would end there if they discovered what laid in wait in his blood, but they passed him through.

He was then measured and outfitted in leather and iron armor. It wasn’t scale armor or anything fancy like a Roman soldier would wear but he wasn’t half-naked either. He had been told the king—even thinking of him with that title filled Bayne with disgust—was very particular about the authenticity shown in his games. The armor was high quality. He didn’t want to think about the amount of money wasted in just armor and weapons for this place. The armor he wore wasn’t new, but it was in excellent shape. They only had to make some minor adjustments to fit it to his muscular body. Next, he’d chosen his weapons. He’d been trained in several kinds of melee weapons over the years just for this mission.

Bayne went with the classic gladius and round shield. If needed, he could pick up others on the field. After he’d been given his armor and weapons, they showed him to a barracks building next to the Colosseum. He had been surprised it wasn’t under it, but it seemed they didn’t want their prospective new vampires to be shunned from the sun just yet. Like all the buildings in the city he had seen so far, except the Colosseum, it had numerous large windows.

All the cities were built like this, the windows served two main purposes besides looking out of. The first was to protect against UV rays, which the bloodsuckers were vulnerable to, and the second more important reason was to collect energy. After The Fall, a mass infrastructure change took place and over a decade, cities were transformed, small towns were destroyed, and the bulk of humanity was forced to live like cattle awaiting slaughter. Or so he was taught.

What little Bayne had seen of the human slums didn’t look very destitute. So far, he had been treated with respect and, dare he even say—courtesy. He wasn’t pampered by any means, but he had imagined far worse. They had fed them more than one meal and the foods were unlike anything he’d ever had. He was careful not to eat too much of the rich unfamiliar foods. A few had gotten sick the night before from overindulging. Maybe it was the vamp’s way of giving them all a last meal since most would not survive the games.

Tread by A.G. Carothers: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Exclusive Excerpt from Tread

by A.G. Carothers

Thursdays had quickly become my favorite day of the week. I spent the rest of the week looking forward to today. Last week, Gavin had said something that got me thinking. It’d been many years since I’d given any thought to submitting to someone again. I hadn’t met anyone who’s presence brought that out in me. Gavin had made fun of me from time to time about how I assessed people, but I think me and Gavin’s new sub have that in common.

Everyone, whether they realize it or not, presents themselves in different but discernible ways. It’s in their posture and the energy they send out. It’s not foolproof by any means. Excellent liars and manipulators can change that about themselves, or people trained for espionage or that kind of thing. Still, your everyday person usually isn’t aware of how they project themselves.

Darius screamed nurturer, Daddy Dom, and maybe a little Service Dom. There’s a part of me that yearned for that connection and wanted to be taken care of.  But I had given up on that notion ages ago because who would want to put up with my routines and compulsions? I stopped training service subs a few years ago because most couldn’t handle my demands.

Darius was demanding in a stern-yet-not-assholish way that was super-hot. He was accepting—so far—of my ways and didn’t seem offended. Once he understood I needed to be the one to do things in a certain way, he let me do them without argument or scorn. That was rare in this age of impatience. He was observant and attentive. The way he catered to me could be perceived as submissive in some light, but the commanding way in which he did them crossed the action over that line. There was a difference in asking someone to do something for you and then having something done for you without you asking.

I liked that he didn’t ask.

I walked into the café at eight sharp and headed to my booth. I wiped everything down, took off my jacket, and put my stuff down then went to order. I ordered the same thing every Thursday. Once, in the beginning, when I made this my Thursday routine, the employee had tried to be helpful and preempt my order and had everything ready for me. It was kind of them, and I appreciated the attention to detail and forethought. I had explained to them I’d rather they wait until I made my order. What if I had wanted to be wild that day and have a blueberry muffin instead? It was more polite to wait than assume.

I taught that there was a fine line between knowing what your dominant wanted and assuming what your dominant wanted. It was also far more important to remember how something should be done when it was needed than trying to read minds.

I opened my laptop and logged into the HPD remote desktop. After the first month, Darius had made me my own log-in for his other network, which wasn’t attached to the public café one. I was pleased with his thoughtfulness. My case files were stored on the remote desktop, not my local machine, for security, so I appreciated the extra security layer. I had clicked on the case folder I was currently working on when I saw Darius approach in the corner of my eye. He normally didn’t bring my breakfast; it piqued my curiosity

The wide, almost excited, smile on his face demanded that I return it. I was happy to see him, so it was easy to do.

“Good morning, Abel.” Darius set the coffee and juice down and did something he’s never done before. He slid into the booth on the other side of the table.

“Good morning, Darius. How are you?”

“I’m doin vera well this fine mornin. An’ ye’self?” His accent thickened just enough for it to send tingles through my body.

“Fine,” I unexpectedly squeaked. I cleared my throat and tried again. “Fine. Just fine.” I smiled sheepishly, hoping the blush on my face wasn’t too bright.

“What are you doing tomorrow night?”

“Tomorrow is Friday night.”

“Yes.” He leaned on the table, putting his forearms on the edge. “What are you doing?”

“Cleaning the pantry and the refrigerator out, ordering Italian, and watching Kitchen Nightmares.” I ran down my short mental list.

“Kitchen Nightmares, huh?”

I nodded.

“After you clean out your pantry and refrigerator?”

I nodded again.

“Is that so you don’t feel shame about your own kitchen when Gordon is yelling at the restaurant owners about how filthy they are?”

Laughter barked out of me. “Yes. That’s it exactly.”

Teeth flashed at me, and I lowered my head.

“May I cook you Italian instead of you ordering it?”

I raised my head again and arched an eyebrow. What was he asking?

He continued, “I can make it at my place and bring it over, or if it’s okay with you, I can cook at your place.”

“You don’t want me to go over to your place?”

“No, I’d love for you to come to my place. I just didn’t want to interrupt your routine too much.”

“That’s…that’s very thoughtful of you. No one has done that before.” I was at a loss for words.

“So, is that a yes?” He beamed at me, not acknowledging my nervousness.

“Yes, I would like it very much if you came to my house and cooked for me.”

“Excellent. I’ll be back later, and you can give me your number.”

He seemed pleased as he scooted out and headed back to the busy counter. There was a sway to his step as the pleats of his kilt brushed back and forth across his toned thighs.

I immediately pulled out my phone and texted Gavin. I had no idea what to do. I hadn’t had a date in years, and the only person who’d been in my house since I stopped training was Gavin. I quickly typed out what had just happened. I put my phone down and took a deep breath.

The reality that Darius MacLeod was coming to my house and cooking me dinner sunk in. I picked up my phone again.

Me: Darius is coming over to my house tomorrow night and cooking dinner. My house is a disaster zone! There’s no way that it is fit for company!!!!!

I quickly logged out of everything, including my forgotten laptop, packed up, and rushed home.

T.A.G. You’re Seen by A.G. Carothers: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Exclusive Excerpt from T.A.G. You’re Seen

by A.G. Carothers

Conny was cute if you went for that sort of guy, the small impish build perfect for holding up against a wall. He wore wire frame glasses that made him look far too innocent, which he wasn’t. Where I had held back in exploring my sexual desires Conny had not. Dad thought for sure we were going to get together when we were teenagers since we were both gay and really close, but that was just never going to happen. We really were like brothers. We’d cuddle and watch movies, but my dick wouldn’t even twitch when looking at him naked and neither would his. It was better that way. We both had at least one person in our lives we could tell absolutely everything to without judgment or recrimination. We could both talk to Dad about anything too, but there were some things you just didn’t want to talk to your parental figure about. 

In this case, it was jacking off while spying on a mark. “I can’t believe you did that, Yoshi.” Conny shook his head with a half-smile.

“I couldn’t help it. The words had me at their mercy and his voice. God, it was so growly and sexy.” I leaned back into the couch with the phone in my lap not really caring where the camera was pointed.

“I guess it now makes sense why Ms. Ne handed me your contract file and told me to call you with her findings.”

“Oh yeah?” I sat up again and looked down into the phone. I was like an excited puppy. I wanted to roll my eyes at myself for acting like such a little kid. I’d never felt this way. I’d never been excited about a guy before. I didn’t know what to do with this energy or these feelings, but I did need to get a grip on myself before I had my talk with the mark.

“Yeah, she didn’t find anything else significant. There were some contracts done at the same time as the mark was in some of these places, but we have so many contracts that’s not really a sign of anything. She says everything looks like it’s on the up and up.” Conny turned over the papers he was looking at and shrugged. “I don’t know what to tell you brother, but you can’t let this infatuation get in the way. Just do the assignment and come home.”

I shook my head. “I can’t, Conny. I’m going to talk to him.”

“Don’t. You know that’s a bad idea.”

“Yeah, but you’re not going to tell me who or why there’s a contract out on him.”

“No, you know I can’t do that.”

“See so my only option to find out more is to talk to him.”

“No, you could just do the assignment.”

“I can’t. I just can’t. Something isn’t right, and I’d never forgive myself if I didn’t at least try to get to the bottom of it.”

Conny huffed out a breath. “Fine. How are you going to talk to him?”

“I’m already working on that part. I’m building a nice comfy room for him to stay in while I break down his mental defenses and question him.”

Conny burst out laughing. I looked at him confused. He laughed some more. I furrowed my brow. “You’re building a torture room to talk to him in?”

“Well, yeah. How else am I supposed to talk to him?”

Conny finally calmed down and composed himself. “Why not just ask him out?”

“How is that supposed to get me the information I need in a timely manner?”

“Yes, it may take longer, but at least then you could get some.”

I looked disgusted at him. “You want me to seduce him, get information out of him, fuck him, and then kill him?”

Conny shrugged. “Yeah, sure why not?”

“And they say you’re the cute and cuddly one.” I laughed a little bit at him and shook my head again. “No, that’s just cruel, and if I don’t want to give up my ass to some guy I pick up at a club, what makes you think I’m going to give up my ass to some guy I’m going to kill right after?”

Conny raised a hand in front of him in surrender. “Sorry, sorry. I forget your ass is the most precious thing in the world to you. God forbid you actually let anyone near it.” He stuck his tongue out at me, and I snorted out a huff.

Conny sobered. “Just don’t get attached, Yosh.”

My face fell, and I became serious. “I won’t. I know what I have to do.”

Conny nodded. “I’ll keep looking just in case I can find anything else. When are you going to grab him?”

“Next Monday. I finished pouring the concrete for the walls last night. It’s going to take all week for them to cure especially in this cold even with the blankets and stuff I put up to help keep out the cold. Then I’ll need a few days to put in the finishing touches.”

“Camera feeds going to our servers?”

“Of course.”

“Good. I’ll make sure to watch them when you get him.”

I smiled at my brother. “I know you have my back.”

Secrets Revealed by A.G. Carothers: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Exclusive Excerpt from Secrets Revealed

by A.G. Carothers

Xander nearly lost control of his pending climax when Matt’s emotions hit him full force. His heart swelled with the love he felt from Matt. Elation coursed through Matt as his body spasmed against Xander and throbbed inside of him.

Instincts took over Xander as soon as Matt released his bite on his neck. He stood up, Matt’s cock just barely softened enough to not tear Xander. He turned around and pulled Matt up with a cupped hand on the back of his neck. Xander kissed him, licking his own blood off Matt’s lips and then flipped him around. Matt bent over, grabbed the lower bar, and spread his legs, looking over his shoulder with a giddy smile. Barely conscious of grabbing the lube bottle and dripping some down over Matt, Xander ran a hand between his ass cheeks. Fisting his cock with his lubed hand, he wrapped his other arm around Matt’s waist and guided himself in. As soon as the head of Xander’s cock was all the way in, he slammed in the rest. Matt roared, his cock back to full mast despite the burning pain Xander knew he was inflicting.

“Fuck,” Xander moaned out as Matt’s squeezed around him. Taking a deep breath to pull himself away from the edge of orgasming right there, Xander slowly pulled out before thrusting hard and fast back in. He repeated pulling out slowly and thrusting forward hard several times torturing himself with its inconsistency, but he did it anyway loving every second of it. He tried to hold back, the need to claim Matt and complete their bond pushed him to make Matt feel every thrust thoroughly.

Xander leaned over and pulled Matt up flush to his chest, licking the back of his neck and head as he did so. The lines between where he ended and Matt begun blurred. He increased his pace, pumping hard and fast. A deep roar came out of Xander’s throat as he sunk his fangs into the curve of Matt’s neck and shoulder. Blood hit his tongue, and he could feel their magic joining together again, solidifying the bond that was started.

SYN: Consulting by A.G. Carothers: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Exclusive Excerpt from SYN: Consulting

by A.G. Carothers

Matt couldn’t get enough of the way Xander tasted on his tongue. The mixture of his own musk with Xander’s natural taste was heady and intoxicating. Matt writhed under him, rubbing his whole body against Xander, letting their smells and tastes mix and merge into a fog that he wanted to drown in.

Xander seemed to forget his search for the lube as he held onto Matt tightly, sweat built between them merging them closer together. Matt needed more, needed to get closer, needed to have Xander inside of him. Taking up the search for the lube, he plunged his hand under the pillow and found it right away.

Matt stilled and pulled back slightly, handing the bottle over to Xander. Xander stopped and looked down into his eyes as he took it. Matt reached up and caressed Xander’s cheek as he suddenly grew serious. “No matter what happens, make sure you come back to me, yeah?” Matt’s voice was hushed, and he smiled to try to cover up the roughness his emotions created in it.

Xander lowered his head and kissed him so very softly that he almost didn’t feel it. “I love you, you know, and I wouldn’t even imagine not coming home to you.” Xander kissed his nose lightly and grinned at the huff Matt made when he swiped his tongue across it. “Don’t worry, Mathieu.” Xander continued, placing light kisses across his face and down his neck.
