Siren Reborn
Texas Sirens #8
By Sophie Oak
an MMF Menage BDSM Romance
**Sophie is giving away an ebook of the winner's choice from her backlist. **
 Cole Roberts and Mason Scott loved each other since childhood, but they needed something more to make them whole. A Dom and a switch, they searched for the right female submissive to settle down with, but a terrible accident tore them apart. Their perfect life shattered, they were each left angry and alone.
Kitten Taylor’s past is filled with heartache. She yearns to be part of a family with a Master to call her own. When Master Cole takes her in, she might have finally found the place she belongs. Even though something is missing, she is willing to compromise to have the life she always dreamed of, until Mason returns and shows her just how perfect a threesome can be.
When a killer puts the trio in their crosshairs, Cole and Mason will have to put aside the demons of their past in order to forge a future with the woman they love.


“Cole, we’ll leave. I’ll take Kitten home and make sure she’s fed and comfortable, but let us relax you before we go. We have to be something more to you than companions, Cole. You brought me here to help teach Kitten how to be your submissive. Let me show her how your sub takes care of the Master.”
Longing swept over his features before Cole stepped back. His shoulders squared and it was easy to see the worry slide from his body. “My submissives certainly don’t greet me like that. Undress.”
He was on his feet in an instant. He reached down to help Kitten up and suddenly it wasn’t enough to just be with Cole. He wanted to belong. Even if it only lasted for a little while. He stared at her, taking in the graceful lines of her form and the way her hair framed her face. “Cole, you told me I topped Kitten.”
“You do.”
“I need to know what that really means.”
He stared for a moment as though assessing them both. “Can we put the past behind us?”
Mason wasn’t sure he could ever let it go, but he would say anything to not end this moment. “Yes, I would like that. You have my solemn word that I will protect her. I’ll cherish and keep her comfortable. I’ll be your partner in taking care of her and I will give you what you need, Sir.”
“Call me Master, Mason. I need to hear it. And Kitten, you as well. Undress Mason and then yourself and then you will find your position in front of me. I want you to watch. I want you to learn.”
Kitten’s eyes were wide as she turned to Cole. “What do you want me to learn, Master?”
It was time to get down and dirty, and Mason’s whole being tightened. This was what he’d been waiting for. This was why he was here.
God, how long had it been since his blood heated and thrummed through his system like an out of control river? How long since his dick pulsed and thrummed and knew it was going to get well fed?
“He wants you to learn how to suck his cock,” Mason explained, his voice hard with arousal. “And I’m going to show you.”

Entering the small bar on the side of the highway, Remy didn’t harbor high expectations for the
night, not until he notices the most gorgeous man in the place checking him out from across the
room. Casual hookups in dark alleys aren’t his style, but he knows he’d be a fool to pass up such
an opportunity.

From the moment the blond beauty stepped into the room, Colt had to have him, even if just for
the night. Their parking lot tryst gets off to a sizzling start, especially when Colt realizes the barfly
enjoys a firmer hand. It’s just a one night stand, though. What does it matter if he can’t remember
the man’s name?

Unfortunately for him, it matters a lot to Remy, and Colt’s one-time fling is about to become much
more than he expected.


“The characters, even in this short story, are unforgettable and so full of life” – Redz World Reviews


Zayne Michaels is a small-town girl who grew up and ran off to the big city. She currently resides
in the Midwest where she spends her days dreaming up dark, sexy adventures in between soccer
games and the never-ending pile of laundry.

Zayne's fascination with old and discarded treasures has always been a source of inspiration for
her tales. From antique clocks to old, dilapidated houses, her imagination turns to the "what ifs"
and "what used to bes."

Maybe this love for the abandoned is why she is a firm advocate of second chances, or perhaps
she's just a little crazy. Whatever the reason, Zayne believes everyone chooses their own path,
creates their own destiny, and is the author of their own story.

When bestselling author Chester Banning requires inside information on the life of a forensic pathologist, he comes across an enticing, yet unwilling study subject in the shape of sinfully attractive Dr Nicolas Sheridan.
After a hot and slightly unsettling one-night stand, Sheridan turns out to be as inapproachable as he is intriguing and clearly not interested in intensifying their liaison. Chester, however, is already falling head over heels in love and doesn’t rest until he’s succeeded in cracking Sheridan’s icy shell. What he discovers underneath is a man well capable of love and affection but caught up in a web of lies and domestic abuse that makes him seek punishment in self-harm.
Refusing to watch Sheridan go farther down the road to self-destruction, Chester gives him all the love and support he is capable of—but then he discovers the horrifying truth about Sheridan’s past.
 Reader advisory: Suitable for adult readers only. Contains scenes of and references to domestic violence / abuse, self-harm and dubious consent in a non-erotic context.

Excerpt - Chapter 1

Chester Banning was in a good mood. He loved it when things went according to plan and, so far, everything had gone exactly as planned. Travelling had, as usual, left him with lots of new impressions and a few ideas and the hotel he’d booked himself into was just the way he liked it. Now all he needed to make the day perfect was a decent drink or two and some less decent company.
He dressed in his favourite jeans and shirt, left the hotel and the day started going downhill. It took him half an eternity to find a promising location and, when he finally did, the place was far from his usual venue. It was dodgy and run-down, with a clientele to match. Chester went to the bar anyway, ignoring the curious glances of the people who checked him out, and ordered a vodka martini. He met the bartender’s smirk with a smile and a shrug. Such a cliché, but his favourite. Leaning on the bar, he took some time to scan the crowd. He wasn’t too impressed with what he saw and was already halfway through his drink and two-thirds on the way to just calling it a night and leaving when he spotted exactly what he was looking for. Tall, dark-haired and dressed in clothes that had probably cost more than the average weekly income of any of the other guys present, the man was as much out of place as Chester himself. A perfect match. With his most charming smile fixed to his face, Chester leisurely walked to the quiet corner of the bar where the man sat, brooding over his drink. He took a moment to study the profile in close-up and found he still liked what he saw.
“Hi, there,” he said when he had waited long enough to be sure that the other man was aware of his presence and must be expecting him to say something. “You had me wondering, you know.”
A sharp inhalation of air was the only sign he got that the man had even heard him. Not the reaction he’d hoped for but he decided not to let that stop him.
“I couldn’t help but notice you. Seems we’re both in the wrong place.”
At last the man turned his head and glared at him, making Chester flinch with the indignant annoyance he displayed. Chester was pretty sure his gaydar had picked up the signals correctly, so maybe the guy was just a bit weary of being hit on. Looking like he did, he could have had men queuing for a chance to chat him up if he’d made a little more of an effort. His hair was a bit past the right time for a cut and he hadn’t bothered shaving but he was undeniably handsome. A delicate bone structure with high, well-defined cheekbones set the perfect frame for a pair of the most striking, silver-grey eyes Chester had ever seen. The man rested those amazing eyes on Chester with an expression of stony amusement and a hint of curiosity before he finally said, “You are definitely in the wrong place, mate. A couple of hundred miles if your accent is anything to go by.”
Chester smiled and nodded. “Yeah, I know. I’m here because of my job. I’m a writer, you see, and I’m doing some research for my new book.” Chester didn’t usually brag and found it a bit cheap to rely on the I’m-a-writer line, but it had got him laid more than once before.
“Must be a brilliant book if it’s anything to do with this place,” the man grumbled under his breath, his words dripping with sarcasm.
“Well, I hope it will be.” Chester held out his hand. “I’m Chester, by the way, and you are…?”
“Not interested.”
“Oh, I’m sorry. My mistake. I didn’t realise you were bored. Maybe I can help you change that.”
Surprised, the man blinked and then, to Chester’s relief, his mouth curved into a reluctant smile. He gave a tight, appreciative nod. “Nice one.”
“I really hope you’re talking about me.”
The man’s smile widened just a fraction as he gave Chester a quick once-over. He was clearly trying not to let on what he thought but there was a giveaway glitter in his eyes. Just a moment later, he shook his head. “You’re wasting your time.” He picked up his drink again.
“Too bad. I could’ve made it worth your while.” About to turn away, Chester hesitated. He just couldn’t resist. “If your accent is anything to go by, you got misplaced by about four hundred miles yourself. What is it? London, right? Somewhere in Norf London unless I’m very much mistaken.” Probably followed by a rather expensive university.
Something flared up in those grey eyes. It might have been regret or even hurt, but it was gone too fast for a definite identification. “Not bad.”
“Oh, come on, I deserve more than that. You didn’t say much.”
“Finchley.” There was a trace of gloom in the sigh that made up these two syllables.
“Nice place,” Chester smiled. “I used to have a boyfriend up there.” No squirming at the word. So I did have you right. Maybe we’re getting somewhere, after all. “Sure you don’t want to change your mind, Mr Finchley?” Chester asked eventually.
The man took a sip of his drink before he focused on Chester again. “You still wanna know if I’m interested in you.”
“Well, it would brighten my prospects for the rest of the evening considerably if you were.” Chester shrugged.
After a long, thoughtful pause, the man admitted defeat with a long, weary sigh. “Depends on what you’ve got planned, I suppose,” he said.
Trying to figure out his preference, Chester wondered which answer would score highest with this handsome, fickle stranger. His assumption wasn’t really what he himself was in the mood for, but he was happy to settle for second best if it meant a few hours of fun. He decided on an answer that might give him another clue and yet leave options open. “Planned? Nothing so far, to be honest. I prefer to…” Chester paused briefly for emphasis, “…take it as it comes.”
One black eyebrow went up and Chester knew he had misjudged the guy’s inclination. He grinned. “That is, take it as in I’m the one who gets to take what he wants,” he clarified.
A spark of amusement glittered in Mr Finchley’s eyes as he drained his glass and set it down. He reached into the pocket of his leather jacket and took out a packet of cigarettes and a lighter. “Cigarette?”
“No, thanks.” Chester was confused. Had he misunderstood after all?
The man shrugged and stood up. He turned out to be even taller than Chester had estimated. “I’m going outside for a cigarette now. When you’ve decided what you want you can follow me and we’ll see if what we want is compatible.”

Van Pierre is on the hunt for his missing date. He doesn’t need some nosy wolf shifter getting in his way, but that’s just where Fang seems to be. When Van sets out to find Sy Wren, his every move is hampered by the pesky werewolf. It doesn’t help that Fang is the sexiest man Van has ever met, one that sets his blood to boiling every time they lock eyes.

Fangor Strigori is a man on a mission, a secret mission. When a handsome vampire gets in his way, Fang decides to wrinkle the by-the-book man’s world. But what started out as a bit of fun quickly turns into a burning inferno when Van rocks Fang’s world every time they touch. Fighting his attraction to the handsome vampire might be more dangerous than completing his mission.

Vampire and werewolves don’t mix. Everyone knows that. But the desire that burns between them might be stronger than old prejudices and the danger they face when the Ministry starts to hunt them down. If the Ministry doesn’t get them, the heat of the night just might.
