Excerpt Day - A Creatures Of Sin Novel Bk 3: Sins Of Affection © India Harper

Excerpt

...The next few days passed in a fog of pain and drugs. Lucas was vaguely aware of Carver and David coming in and out, applying fresh ice packs or forcing soup down his throat, but beyond that, he slept, unaware of the passing time.

When he came to at last, it was morning three days later, according to his smartphone, and his bladder was screaming for relief.

He forced himself out of bed on weak legs and staggered into the adjoining bathroom. He didn’t bother to try standing to relieve himself, sinking down on the toilet to do his business. When he finished, he staggered over to the sink to examine the damage.

It must have been a lot worse. The bruises were already shifting to a sickly greenish-yellow and thick, blackened scabs now protected the abrasions. He flexed his arm gingerly. He still had basic mobility, unless he overextended it. No bondage clients for the next few weeks until he got in a little physical therapy.

“Fuck, David!”

Lucas hadn’t paid attention to the sliding door on the other side of the bathroom, presuming it to be a closet of some kind. He was noticing it now.

A hard slap sang through the room on the other side. “Not the right thing to say, Carver.” David’s voice was low and insistent, but Lucas could hear the need in it as well.

“Fuck me, David! Christ, just do it!” Carver didn’t bother to keep his voice down, although it was muffled, as though his cheek were pressed against a pillow.

“Much better.”

Lucas smiled as he edged closer to the partition, grateful that the simple act no longer hurt like hell. His cock stirred to full attention with the next resounding slap from the other room.

“I said don’t move, Carver.”

A derisive snort, then a breathless, “I’d like to see you not move—ow! Watch the hair!”

“That includes your mouth.”

“You like it when I move my mouth. Especially when it’s wrapped around you— Oh, Jesus, fuck!”

Lucas could hear David’s answering grunt over Carver’s curses, and suddenly Lucas had a clear image in his mind of David kneeling behind Carver, shoving his lover’s face into the bedding as he penetrated his ass, now rosy with handprints. Lucas reached down to cup himself, but the pressure did nothing to alleviate the aching arousal.

“What were you say— Christ!” Lucas could almost feel David’s control cracking. “Do that again.” Or not. Buried balls’ deep in Carver, how the man could manage any coherent thought was beyond Lucas. There was nothing better than topping a top, taking that control and making them beg for more.

Lucas’ groan echoed those coming from the other room as he wrapped his fingers around his cock and began stroking in time with the rhythm set by David and Carver. He felt no small amount of relief that everything was working fine. The thugs had neglected to take the chance to do some damage where it counted, but you never knew.

“Goddamn it, Carver, not yet!”

“Machine.” Slap. “Robot.” Slap. “Fuck…harder.”

The smack of skin on skin Lucas heard now wasn’t the impact of a hand, but the collision of two bodies fucking hard and fast. “Never hard enough for you,” David accused, voice tight and harsh. “Maybe you do need a machine. Maybe that would be hard enough.”

“Don’t need a machine. Just need you.”

The raw honesty in that statement... Lucas never would have thought Carver capable...

Lucas McAndrews is handsome, charming and smart, all of which make his job as a sought-after gigolo that much easier. But when he and a friend are assaulted out of nowhere, Lucas calls the one man from whom he has no reason to expect help...Carver Eliot.

Two years ago, Lucas almost destroyed Carver’s career, but Carver has a hard time holding a grudge. Lucas had been a great lay, and in the end had brought Carver to David Logan, his current lover and partner. So when Lucas calls, Carver’s only hesitation is in telling David. To his surprise, it’s David who invites Lucas into their home, challenging Carver’s restraint and the fundamentals of their relationship.

But Carver isn’t the only one tempted, as David must also face the limits of his experience and the needs of his body and heart. Ghosts of the past and threats of the present are soon the least of Carver and David’s worries as Lucas wins his way into their bed.

Now, the only questions remaining are who will end up with whom...and who will end up dead...

I read the first book, skipped the 2nd book, and read a short that was published via ARe. I liked the first book, but the blurb I saw on the 2nd one didn't inspire me to pick it up.

Erotic Horizon on 20 August 2010 at 22:36 said...

Thanks for that Chris..

I am liking stories that do not have the expected HEA at the end of every books..

So I am going to give this one a shot and the last book seems to be a menage - so right up my street...
