The sound of the water cascading down the rocks echoed around them, nature’s serene melody embracing them in its grasp. For the first time they were alone in their secret hiding place.
“I don’t know how you found this place but I’m happy you did,” she said and wrapped her arms around him. Her fingers slowly caressed his naked back as she got lost into his magical blue eyes.
“I will go to the ends of the world if this will give me time with you.”
Marius tangled his legs around her as his powerful arms took hold of her tiny frame. Lowering his head he captured her lips. Salaya parted her mouth, letting his heated breath fill her as his tongue swiped over her hot flesh. Pressing her body against his she relinquished full control to him. Marius knew how to bring the beast from within to the surface, and he was no longer afraid to do so. But she couldn’t deny the fear she still held buried inside her. It still clawed to the surface yelling at her to stop, to push him away. Control was not easy to keep hold of and to master, even after all these centuries of learning to.
“Are you sure you want to do this?” she asked breathlessly as she tore herself away from him.
Marius gave her a calming smile, as his eyes lit up with joy.
“Yes my beautiful pussy cat. I’m ready for the beast you hold inside you.”
Raphael’s Fall By Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy
They sprawled beneath the aged oak, short of breath and sated. He cradled the beautiful blonde in his arms and she nestled against his chest. Raphael had no idea what her name might be but he knew her, body and soul. When she came to him in the clearing, eyes wide with fear, he’d taken her into his arms to offer comfort and protection. Nothing more, he vowed it. But she raised her tear-stained face to him and Raphael drank in her deep blue eyes.
His mouth came down onto hers with the fury of a gathering storm. She brought out his half-human side, his desire for flesh. Although he knew he should resist, he yielded. His mouth caressed her lips with the skill he’d learned once and his hands explored her body beneath the simple garments she wore. Heat flared between them like summer lightning and exploded into fire as he entered her, his shaft hard and her place wet for him. The first come happened swift but he loved her again and again, through the long night. Each time he tasted, he tempted and he gave the same pleasure he took.
He’d fallen from grace but Raphael would not go back, not this time, never again.

The Proposal-By Lacey Wolfe
Mia gazed up at Ben as the water fall splashed beside them, drenching them both with cool liquid. She didn’t care though. Ben had planned a whole day around her to show her that he loved her and wanted to spend the rest of his life with only her.
Leaning into his embrace, she gently pressed her lips to his. This man was everything to her and as he kissed her back, a warmth of safety swept through her entire body. Opening herself to him more, the kiss deepened. Mia caressed his biceps and then trailed her lips from his mouth, down his neck, and finally to the tender spot on his collarbone.
She then peeked up at him through her heavy lashes. “How did I ever get so lucky?”
Ben smirked. “I think the real question is; how did I get so lucky?”
“Well, since we both seem to have the luck of the Irish, maybe we should elope to Vegas and then hit the casinos. Maybe we could score big.”
Ben leaned closer to her ear and whispered, “Oh, you’re going to score big all right.”
Turning her body, she straddled him. Staring into his eyes, the world stopped, except for the waterfall beside them. The splashing was loud enough to block any loud sound that they might make. “Make love to me, right here, right now. Show me just how big and lucky I’m going to get.”
Ben cupped her ass and said, “You got it.”

"When I return to the sea this time," Mikayla whispered against his lips. "I will not come back here again."
He laced his hands in her hair to stare into her turquoise eyes. Brayden saw the love she would not profess, the desire they shared which only grew each time she left her mermaid form and became human. "I will not lose you. I can not let you go." Panic rose and nearly choked him.
Her shaking fingers touched his cheek. "If I stay, I will only have another week before I fade to nothing."
"Not if you read the words." He glanced at the markings on his arms and chest.
"I can not take your immortality from you." She pushed away from him but he held tight.
"You can." He smiled without humor. "What is everlasting life if I can not share it with you?" She owned his heart and possessed his soul.
Dropping her head to his chest, she drew a breath that shuddered through her body. "But then I will be in this world for eternity, alone after you…"
"Fade to nothing?" Brayden tipped her chin to meet his gaze. "That's the genius of my plan. Once you take these words unto your body, we need only find another who wishes immortality."
"Someone to read the words from my flesh." Her eyes lightened with excitement. "And then you and I would both be mortal."
"Read them, Mikayla, so that we will make each day of our lives like an eternity."
Waterfall by Nikki Prince
Master Jae had told me that he wanted my collaring to be special. That he knew just the place to take me. I’d chuckled when I heard those words because I knew that there was a double meaning.
The waterfall in the background besides just being plain gorgeous was romantic and the perfect backdrop to have him collar me. I wanted to please him and I’d found the way to do it. Everything he asked of me, no matter how big or small I did it without argument and with complete trust.
Leaning in he kisses me softly. “You’re the only one I want to wear my collar.”
I realized then that I’d been holding my breath. “I’m honored Master.’
“You seem shocked.” He chuckled softly.
“Only because I didn’t expect to be the only one to wear your collar, there are other girls at the house who want that honor.”
“The other girls are in training for other Masters and Mistresses. You I’ve been saving for myself.” I felt the flush that covered my skin at his high praise and turned my face up to kiss him softly. What an honor to know I was his alone and no one else would be able to take my place. He stroked his thumb across my neck and said the words I wanted to hear.
“Mine.” He said.
Then I felt the coolness of leather and I was his.
“Yours,” I said and I knew it to be true.
He looked away-Cassandre Dayne
There was something so incredible about the rain falling across their heated bodies. Jasmine couldn’t believe she was nestled in his arms, arms she thought she’d never be in again. Tears mixed with the warm beads of water, creating a stream down her face and yet she knew she couldn’t understand or even tell him why she was distraught. How could she? Justin hadn’t known how close to death he’d really been. Those long days of waiting and praying had taken their toll, not only in her beliefs but in her very soul. She was a shell of the woman before the accident.
“What are you thinking?” Justin asked as he kissed her forehead.
“That I love you.”
“There’s more. I can tell when there’s more. You know that, you...” Inhaling deeply, he looked away. “You can’t hide from me.” While he laugh was genuine, the sound was strangled, husky from the tubes remaining in his neck for over a solid month, breathing for him -- trying to keep him alive. The sound silenced by the real truth.
Jasmine swallowed hard as she tipped her head back, her eyes darting back and forth across his. For a second she could swear she reached deep inside, to the man she’d fallen in love with and then the fleeting moment was gone. She palmed his chest, gripping the drenched fabric. “I love you.”
“I know you do and I love you to.”
But she knew differently. Justin didn’t remember who she was.
The Dragon's Keep by Michel Prince
There was only one thing Geirr feared and that was sharing his keep. Dragon’s open themselves to attack once men know of their wealth, but Gwendolyn had found his closed off heart. Having never wanted to share his cursed existence he looked at the long golden tresses circling her porcelain skin.
“My love,” Geirr growled against her throat. “I wish you to leave your home and be with me.”
“Oh Geirr,” she giggled then pounced away on the wet rocks beneath the waterfall.
The tiny lagoon under the spray held more than just a secluded place to play with a lover. It held everything he owned in the world and Gwendolyn would be his crowning jewel.
She still did not understand the ink that covered his chest and back. Or the reason he became exhausted to the point of a useless man. All were side effects to his service to Odin as one of his dragons protecting the world.
“Don’t make me chase you love,” he said as he too bounded from rock to rock with quite a bit more grace than she. “I mean it. I’ll share everything I have.’
“What could you possibly have to share with me? I’m a Duchess of the highest rank.”
“Betrothed to Prince, yet bedded by a man you think is a pauper.”
“Urgh, you’re a monster Geirr.”
“No,” he said sweeping her into his arms and holding her soft frame to his firm one. “Not with you I’m not. With you I’m a man.”

The Lagoon By ER Pierce
Every lagoon featured something different. My personal habitat was unique, and I wanted to share it with Ceithin. I flipped my favorite switch and the roof opened, leaving us basking under the glow of the real stars and moon. The stars twinkled mischievously, inviting wishes and laughter. I closed my eyes for a moment and wished with all my heart that love would find me
I turned to my mate and yes, Ceithin's my mate, my heart recognized him, but we were not true-mated yet. I hoped we would be someday, but for now, I was content to share this one small piece of myself with him, and hope he didn't flatten me in the process. I'm afraid of giving away too much of myself to any one person, but Ceithin made me re-think my reservations. He made me want to be better, to laugh and sing. He made me want to love and believe. I wanted Ceithin to be part of my family.
I just couldn't tell him any of this. I didn't want to scare him away before we even had a chance to start.
I closed my feelings and stretched out my arm, reaching for him in the low light. We could see each other perfectly. I pulled him closer and kissed the hollow of his throat, across his collarbone and tilted my head back, straining upwards to plant one right on his kisser. "Thanks for trusting me and coming here, I wanted to share this with you."
