#SaturdayStory with the lovely Doris O'Connor and her (hot and yummy) Bad Alpha's

I'm so lucky today, therefore so are you if you're reading this.

Doris is visiting and sharing some Man Love.

Happy Saturday, all, and a big thanks to Raven for letting me ramble on about my newest release. The Alpha’s Assassin released yesterday as part of Evernight Publishing’s Bad Alpha Anthology, and it’s my second foray into M/M.
From the minute I read the anthology submission call, I knew I had to write a story for it, because bad ass shifters—hell, yeah—I’m all over that, for sure. I love writing bad boys, and it wasn’t long before bear shifter Zayden made his presence known. Like I so often do, I woke up with the start of the story in my head one morning, and once I sat down to write, my fingers flew.
Well, writing one bad ass shifter is fun, but writing two? Just as dominant and downright dangerous as each other? Oh, yes, oodles of fun, I tell you, especially as Zayden told me he was sent to kill Quinton.
Bear against wolf… who would have won do you think?
In Quinton’s words:
“I’m glad, because I don’t think I would have won against you. You’re fucking huge, man, and I bet your bear is massive.”
Zayden’s bear might be massive and he might be a killer, but from the minute Zayden scents his mate, he knows Quin is his and he’ll do everything to protect his mate. And besides, Quin can hold his own.
In Zayden’s words:
“Quinton Thorn might only be in his mid-twenties and have the angelic look of a choir boy with his shoulder-length blond curls and baby-blue eyes, but he was also deadly in his own way. So far, every attempt at challenging him had been thwarted by the Alpha. He was known for his kindness, but if he couldn’t kill folks with that, he had no qualms ripping their throats out.”
I think you get the idea, don’t you. These two bad boys meet and they know instantly they’re mates, which proves something of a dilemma for Zayden. He can’t kill his mate, that’s for sure. And how will Quin react when he finds out that Zayden is a hired killer? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out, I’m afraid ;-)
Here’s the blurb:
Love is for fools…
Bear shifter Zayden Reid makes his living doing what he does best—killing people. The sought after assassin doesn’t have to think twice when he’s offered a lot of money to kill the Alpha of a wolf pack, until he scents his mate.
As the Alpha of his pack Quinton Thorn is used to giving orders. He may be gay, but that doesn’t mean he’s weak, and he’ll squash any challenge to his leadership with ruthless efficiency. When the threat comes from a source he trusts, however, can he afford to give into his feelings for his mate, knowing that he’ll endanger everyone under his protection?
The mating bond cannot be denied, no matter what the consequences, and they might well kill.

Ready for a HAWT excerpt?

Spinning the other man around, he pinned him against the wall. He slammed his lips over Quinton’s and at the other man’s sharp exhale, slipped his tongue past the firm lips. His mate’s flavor exploded on his taste buds. Groaning, he took the kiss deeper, pleased to note that Quin seemed to be as much in thrall of this thing between them as he was.
The growl of Quinton’s wolf joined the incessant rumble of his bear, and he grunted when Quin’s hands grasped his ass cheeks and pushed their groins together. Even with the rough denim between them, Zayden could feel the heat and length of his mate’s cock. He drank in the needy little moans Quin made as Zayden’s dick grew bigger still.
With a loud growl, he wrenched his lips off Quinton’s, and pulled the man’s hands off his ass. Quinton groaned and tried to close the distance between them, but Zayden grasped his wrists and pinned his hands high above his head. He glared at him and growled.
Quinton’s eyes widened and bled to the softly glowing yellow of his wolf’s as he snarled at Zayden.
It was the vulnerability Zayden sensed in him though that stopped his bear from reacting. Instead he let him go and stepped away with a muttered, “Fuck, I need another drink.”
Quinton’s humorless laugh made his chest feel tight. He closed his eyes and fisted his hands when the other man grasped his dick in a firm hold.
“We should have stayed at the bar for that. There’s only one thing I want to do, and that’s taste my big… bad… bear.”
Zayden’s cock jumped at the heated words delivered into his neck, and awareness of the other man seeped through his veins like molten lava. Quinton suckled on his skin, then bit down slightly before he dropped to his knees. With a wicked grin up at him, he nuzzled into Zayden’s groin.
Seeing his mate kneeling on the floor, making short work of freeing Zayden’s cock out of his jeans, made all coherent thought flee his brain. He hissed through his teeth as Quinton freed his dick, wrapped his fist around the base of his shaft, then ran his thumb through the drop of pre-cum already escaping his slit. He then wrapped his lips around the tip and sucked hard.
Pleasure erupted along his sensitive skin, and with his fists by his side, Zayden shut his eyes, let his head fall back, and simply gave himself over to the skilled tongue of his lover. In no time at all he felt his release building, and he yanked Quin off his dick with a hoarse shout. The other man’s teeth scraped along his shaft as he let go and the sharp pain dulled his arousal somewhat, only to flare anew when he pulled Quinton up and kissed him.
He could taste his own saltiness on the other man’s lips, and it drove his bear wild. Marching him backward until Quinton’s back hit the wall, he took the kiss deeper, then ran his nose along the rapidly beating pulse point in Quin’s beard-roughened neck. He inhaled deeply, drinking in the scent of his man.
“You’re mine, wolf boy.”
He growled the words into his mate’s collar bone as he continued his journey south. Quinton grunted and swore under his breath as Zayden used his claws to tear the other man’s shirt off.
But it was his own turn to groan when he caught sight of his mate’s nipple rings.
Bending lower, he tucked at first one and then the other with his teeth, and Quin’s claws ran out and dug into his scalp as he pulled Zayden in closer.
“Fuck yes.”
Zayden grinned as he pushed his hand under the waistband of Quinton’s jeans. His mate wasn’t wearing any underwear, and Zayden groaned anew when he encountered the piercing adorning his mate’s cock. He ran his thumb over the weeping slit, tugged on the ring attached to Quin’s hood, and caught the other man’s lustful groan in his mouth as he scooted back up to kiss him.
Heat scorched his fingers as the cock in his hand lengthened and thickened further under his none-too-gentle ministrations. They were both gasping for air, their respective animals’ growls filling the space between them. Zayden wasn’t at all surprised to see the other man’s canines appear. His, too, stung his lips, and he licked the resulting drop of blood away.
“You’re pierced.” He ground the words out through gritted teeth as he struggled with the intense need to sink his teeth into the beefy shoulder in front of him and cement this bond between them.
“It’s a sign of the Alpha in my pack.” Quin’s grunted reply should have cooled Zayden’s ardor. Quin was the Alpha, and marking him as his would cause him no end of trouble, but his bear wasn’t listening. This man was his, and no one and nothing was going to take him away from him. Fuck the consequences. He would deal with the inevitable fallout later. If he had any decency left in him at all he would put a stop to this before they were both too far gone. But Zayden was consumed with the need for this man, and instead of pulling away, he tightened his hold on the other man’s shaft.
Perspiration broke out on Quinton’s forehead and he howled when Zayden pulled on his piercing again. He then ran his canines along the other man’s neck—not hard enough to break the skin, just to leave a red trail and to warn Quin of his intentions.
“Yes, fuck yes, bite me already. I want to be yours.”
