Touch Me Gently E-Book Contest #2

September 3, 2010

The second contest:

I am going to list out three quotes from three different DSP authors’ novels. The rules are simple. Name the author and the title of each book. The first person to answer correctly will receive a free e-book from me. If you need a hint, post a comment and I will provide one for all. I tried to pull out enough information from the stories to make it slightly easier. Just checking to see how much of a fan you all are of Dreamspinner Press novels! :D

First Quote:

The cave was deep and twisted until they reached the end, where there was a small fire in a pit and a mound of animal pelts, prey animals taken during past hunts. It was warm, dry, and cozy. This was his secret place, the place that only he and his mate would ever see or know about. As I wheeled around to face him, I saw him walking slowly toward me on two legs, having shifted back to his human form before entering the cave. The man was beautiful, absolutely mouthwatering, and just seeing him, all that gorgeous gold skin over his sleek muscular frame, made my resolve falter. He simply annihilated me.

“I’m sorry,” he said softly, walking to the furs and kneeling down slowly. “All I wanted to do was protect you. I had no idea you were such a capable fighter or that you could do all the things you can do. I will never again underestimate you, and if you tell me you want to stand beside me, whenever, wherever, I promise I won’t second guess you.”

I just stared at him.

“That’s not to say that I will ever allow you to be harmed, because I can’t. I’m not strong enough to take anything happening to you.”

I moved a step closer.

“You saved me, and by doing that, you saved us all. I’m semel-re because of you. People will come to us, and there will be challenges, and now that everyone knows… there’s never going to be a dull moment, I can tell. But, Jin… I know you need time to think, but I can’t even rest without you, and I need to rest. I need my mate.” His eyes pleaded with me. “Come home.”

Second Quote:

 As Jonah watched, the man slid the jacket off broad shoulders to reveal a crisp white shirt and suspenders. Actual suspenders! Jonah suspected he would laugh at anyone who actually wore suspenders—he associated them with pocket protectors and clown shoes—but this guy actually made it work. More than made it work, in fact. He made it look… well, classy. When the man looked up at him, a smirk tugging at his lips, Jonah nearly stumbled back in shock. He caught himself on the window sash just in time to avoid putting weight down on the leg, but his heart pounded triple-time. His pulse was jumping as hard and quick as it had while he’d been lying in the stairwell the week before, leg screaming in pain and head throbbing.

 The man was looking right at him. Long, elegant fingers went to the buttons of his shirt, starting at the top and slowly unfastening them one at a time.

 Jonah was astounded. The man must have brass balls to be able to stand there and calmly initiate a strip show across an alley for a complete stranger. Of the same sex, no less. Jonah was pretty sure he hadn’t had a bright rainbow G-for-Gay stamped on his forehead, so he could only assume the man was brave enough to take a chance on him not minding the come-on. Or maybe his neighbor was more observant than Jonah was and actually noticed his neighbor’s activities. He might have seen Sean coming and going… and then going. Anybody who’d seen that fight would know Sean hadn’t been a casual roommate and that he wasn’t coming back.

Third Quote:

“Lucas? Look, I know you’re there and you know why I’m calling. I got a call from that DA in Atlanta and he told me what’s going on. He said Miller is getting out on some damn technicality and they wanted the local law enforcement to know the deal.”

 Pausing for a brief second, Sheriff Nicholas Demetris mentally cursed, because he knew Lucas was sitting in his living room, listening to the message as he left it, but the stubborn bastard wouldn’t pick up the phone.

As much as he loved the man, and there was no denying that he did love the man with all his fool heart, there were times when he desperately wanted to strangle him and now was indeed one of those times.

 Damn it, Luc; let me be there. Let me help you and love you.
