About the Book: What if you suddenly found yourself in a Dragon’s Lair? What would you do? Mmmm. Enjoy it, of course. Especially when the dragon is so yummy!
Ryuu had spend his life having to explain why he likes dressing in woman’s clothes and resenting that he was different. Travelling the country with his boyfriend and working as a drag queen entertainer had been fun. Until it got old. The moving around and the boyfriend. Finding a new stable job in Boston is a godsend. He doesn’t know yet just how true that statement is.
Troy lives in his caves. He hardly goes out, unless his somewhat friend, Hermes, makes him. Yes, that Hermes. And Troy’s that old. And weary. He’s a naga dragon and has no time or patience for humans’ bullshit. Then he hits a human with his car and takes him home to heal. His life will never be the same.
Will the stubborn dragon realize in time what treasure he had stumbled upon, with a bit of friendly help? The sex is great but is that the only thing that is special about Ryuu? Even if he does open his eyes in time , Ryuu may not survive the sudden immerse in a world where dragons are venomous snake-like hunky guys and mythological gods own clubs. Especially if you mix in all the craziness an impulsive competitive brother and a scary as hell future mother-in-law.
Excerpt: “Spread your legs.”
“Oh, god! Say that again, I think I just came in my pants.”
“Not yet, not without me. Now, spread them.”
He moans and complies. The change comes with the added bonus of feeling Troy’s hardness press down on his swollen dick and this time he does almost come from the friction. Letting the rest of his weight down, Troy starts to slowly circle his hips and push down.
“Gawd! What are you doing to me?”
“Mmmm. Trojan. Say my name. Scream it.”
Um. Okay. But, then again, the guy has the technique to make Ryuu scream it, so…still. Trojan? He starts to laugh uncontrollably and sadly all movement in the southern hemisphere comes to a halt.
“Why are you laughing?”
“Not”—hiccup—“your fault”—another snort of laughter—“big guy.”
Somehow, Troy isn’t buying it.
“Okay.” Ryuu takes a calming breath, by now wanting nothing more than to beat his own ass for interrupting their session of heavy petting.
“Your name. Trojan? It seemed funny. Especially when you wanted me to scream it instead of god.” He snorts again, then gives up and lets loose another bout of laughter.
“Don’t get me wrong. You’re a terrific guy, really nice from what I’ve seen so far. And really nice to look at. You also seem to have the moves to back up all that “modest” ego you got going there but, really, dude? And Trojan? What were your parents smoking when they named you Trojan and your brother Python? Or thinking off? Condoms and sex toys?”
Troy’s face is an interesting study of mixed emotions. For a moment, Ryuu fears he has gone too far, as he usually does when he lets his mouth get the better of him. Then the most miraculous thing of all night—well, almost morning by now—happens. More incredulous than almost freezing and being saved by a beefy macho man who proves to be a gentle giant in disguise—with few words to speak but louder actions. More than having that same guy respond to Ryuu’s stupid impulse of kissing his sensual lips which have been driving him crazy from first sight. Troy doesn’t get offended by his bad-timed sense of humour. Nope. The guy’s aquamarine eyes slowly light up as his, reddened from their kisses, lips quirk up and slowly two twin dimples make their appearance on the chiselled cheeks. Ryuu feels faint and weak in the knees. Luckily, he’s still on the table. Under Troy.
“You’re a peculiar human. Damn be Hermes and his plans!”
The ‘peculiar human’ doesn’t get the change to wonder about that as Troy gets right back to it, starting, of course, with Ryuu’s sensitive neck. His hips begin their gyratory move again, the friction harsher than before but still not enough. He opens his mouth to suggest they get some of their clothes out of the way but it proves unnecessary when a cool hand travels up his abdomen and pinches harshly on his pebbled right nipple. Another, slightly cold, hand makes short work of Ryuu’s zipper and pulls him out. He moans and gasps for air.
“Not laughing anymore, are you? Ready to scream my name yet?”
Dare? Ryuu likes a good dare.
“You wish… TROJAN!” Ryuu bellows as Troy wraps his mouth around Ryuu’s throbbing dick.
Troy doesn’t even mind the muffled laugh, it only adds to the vibrations traveling up his cock to settle in his ball sack. Ryuu’s back arches off the table, pushing his dick further in Troy’s peculiarly cool mouth. The contrast between that chilliness and the way Ryuu’s skin is practically boiling, makes Ryuu trash and whimper. He needs…he wants…
Troy leaves his dick pulsing and Ryuu growling with frustration.
“Hmm, I think I like the taste of you. Maybe I’ll think about keeping you for a while.”
The guy could still talk? Ryuu wasn’t having that! He pulled Troy up by his ears, more because he surprises the guy than overpower him. Feeling all parts align nicely, he gets his hands down and dirty. Oh, yeah! That’s the sound he wants to hear.
About the Author: Aeryn Jaden loves to read. Loves it so much that some days she doesn’t know what reality is anymore. Her friends and family usually have to yell a bit and remind her. Must be why she’s twenty eight and still searching for a special person of her own. The second best thing in the world for Aeryn is writing. Writing keeps her relatively sane and clears the voices in her head clamouring for her attention (meaning the characters’ voices, she’s not that crazy to randomly hear voices! Yet.). She was born in Romania but cannot stay put. One year you’ll find her in England, the next in Greece or Belgium. Who knows where her restless feet will carry her next… One thing remains constant and that is her totally healthy Internet addiction. So you can find her on Facebook or better yet at her website and blog. She’ll love to hear from you, so please stop by!
