Coming to Siren-Bookstrand!




“Do it.” His guttural voice was demanding as hell.

“Then what, Kellan? What happens next?”

“Are you naked underneath?” His lips twitched. “Are you bare, sweetheart?”

She was dressed in a short chemise. Of course she was naked, a fact she found disturbing then. She typically wore panties to bed. Had she subconsciously planned for something like this? Had she hoped for opportunity, anticipated it right from the start?

“Yes,” she finally replied.

“Let me see, Jade.” There was no play in his voice. He expected her to strip and if she followed his request, she’d soon find out what else he had in mind. On the flipside, if she didn’t remove the gown, then she’d never know.

The not knowing was more than she could stand.

His curiosity was enough to kill a damn mountain lion.

Jade’s timid ways, the way she’d moved against him, trying to find a comfortable—if not safe position, had spoken volumes and while he now wanted to do the right thing, they were long past the point of turning back.

Maybe she was innocent. Perhaps she was indeed untouched. And while he wanted to be respectful, he was also an interested man.

He longed to see what was underneath her gown. He wanted to touch and hold her, caress her until he knew the softness of her skin and she easily recognized his careful touch.

Kellan wanted to feel her hot breath at his ear, the way she moaned in delight as he brought her pleasure. And by damn, he would indeed bring her pleasure.

She disposed of her chemise. And in that very instant, Kellan’s future unfolded before him.

A lifeline was unnecessary. A man, even one who wanted to be saved, couldn’t be pulled from these dangerous waters.

Kellan had never seen anything more beautiful. And he’d never seen anyone so frightened. One look and he knew everything he needed to know about her intimate past.

She didn’t have one.

Reaching out to her, he tried not to act like an ass and just eat up the sight of her. While it was difficult, he somehow survived, pulling her back to the sofa without yanking her on top of him.

He even allowed her to cover up, which wasn’t an allowable act in his bed under normal circumstances. Then again, these circumstances were very different.

This young woman wasn’t experienced. As much as he’d tried to convince himself that she wanted him to look, he wasn’t so sure now. In fact, he would’ve staked a lot on one notion. If he’d suggested it, she would’ve gladly grabbed that gown and dressed much quicker than she’d stripped.

Nuzzling her hair, Kellan waited for her to settle down and curl up in his arms before he said, “You’re beautiful.”

She gripped the top of the blanket as if she were afraid to respond. This was one time when Kellan wished Reason would’ve beaten him to the punch.

Kellan didn’t know how to do virgins. He didn’t sleep with them. He didn’t wreck their worlds. He left them alone because—well, he was apparently as frightened of them as they were of him.

Cursing his prick for dancing in his jeans, he flipped to his back. Bringing her against him, he appreciated the softness of her rounded cheek against his prickly chest as she seemingly relaxed. It took more than a minute for Jade to act comfortable and he was certain of the theatrics in play then. She could bolt at any given time.

“Are you comfortable?”


“Are you lying to me?” He peered down his nose, grinning at the gorgeous woman in his arms. The light in the hall was a treat. Even if nothing happened between them, he would enjoy watching her sleep. He looked forward to the morning possibilities as well.

God, he was losing his mind.

“Do you want me to lie to you, Kellan?”

“I don’t recommend it. Besides, I could make you tell me the truth.”

She shuddered and he grinned. His voice already affected her in some ways.

“Do you make yourother submissives tell you the truth?”

“I don’t have ‘other’ submissives.”

“But that’s what you like. Right?”

“What’s that?”

“Submissive women,” she replied, curving her arm around his waist.

He stilled then, questioning every action and every question. “What do you know about submissive women?”

“Not much,” she admitted. “But I’d be submissive to you.” Her honesty was enough to cripple the best of Doms, at least those who were bent on having a woman, and this woman might as well be collared or branded as his.

“A confession like that could get you in all sorts of trouble.”

“I’m not ready,” she said frankly.

“That’s a fact.” He tucked his fingers under her chin and lifted her lips to his. “But I’m not going anywhere.” He gave her a quick kiss. “And I’m not taking advantage of you.”

“I believe you.”

Today, my guest is fellow Siren-Bookstrand author, Gale Stanley. Gale stopped by to tell us about her latest Siren-Bookstrand release, Symbiotic Mates 4: Damian and the Doctor. While Gale was here, I put her in the hot seat. Scroll on down and take a look!




Welcome Gale! I’m glad you’re here today.

 I want to thank Natalie for putting me on the hot seat… er, I mean inviting me to post. You ask some great questions!

 Let’s start with the easy stuff. Tell us something about yourself, Gale

Gale: I’m a hopeless romantic who grew up reading fairy tales and love stories. I think the world needs more romance and happy endings and that’s what I portray in my stories. 

 Where did your initial interest in writing m/m romance begin?

Gale: My first novels were MFM ménage stories and I discovered I liked writing from the male POV more than the female. I wrote a MM contemporary romance and then added paranormal characters to the mix.

So how did you come up with the idea for Symbiotic Mates?

Gale: I read an article on symbiosis. It was about animals that can’t get by on their own and they form a close partnership with other species—symbiotic relationships. There was a part about ticks who guzzle blood to live. So immediately my head went to vampires and wolf-shifters.

Now that’s what I call interesting! Which couple in the series is your favorite?
Gale: Tough question. I love them all. Today is release day for Symbiotic Mates 4: Damian and the Doctor, and I love the chemistry between them. Tortured characters always capture my sympathy. Damian might be a vampire, but his flaws make him more human, and more relatable. Doc is the perfect alpha wolf. You know the type. The shifter is a lethal predator one minute and a possessive, protective lover the next.

Do you have any other new books coming soon?

Gale: Symbiotic Mates 5: Kade and the Captives and Symbiotic Mates 6: Lane and the Lycans will be re-released soon and book 7, a brand new story, is in the works. Look for them all at Bookstrand:


 Here’s a peek at today’s release – Symbiotic Mates 4: Damian and the Doctor.

 Damian Starling, a scarred and reclusive vampire, believes no man will ever be able to look past his damaged face and love him. When Damian is put in charge of a captured wolf, he enjoys the growing friendship between him and an animal that doesn’t care what he looks like. Damian is ordered to get the wolf to shift, but he’s torn. He wants to know the man inside the animal, but Damian fears if the lycan sheds his fur, he’ll turn away in disgust.

Doc Alder, a lycan physician, knows the vampires have some sinister plan for him, but he intends to go down fighting—as a wolf. Nothing can persuade him to shift to human form until a scarred vampire gains his trust.

Doc shifts, and what started as friendship turns to blazing passion. The men fight their growing feelings, but soon learn that some bonds can never be broken.

Happy Reading!
