Knowing Destiny by Tamsin Baker




 
 
Blurb:

 

Chase, a golden eagle shifter, is destined to be the leader of his flock, the shifters of the air. But he has a few problems. He’s not ready for the responsibility, he isn’t sure who he wants as his mate and there’s the little issue of an unsolved killing to sort out.

 

Ben is also a golden eagle shifter, Chase’s best friend and three time lover. He wants to be his best friend’s mate, but can he be honest about his feelings?

 

Ariana is a young peregrine falcon shifter who has loved Chase for years. But why would he want her when he can have anyone he wants?

 

Three shifters, three separate problems, all fighting to find out who they are and how they can love each other.

 

Excerpt:

Ben showered and dressed quickly. What was he going to say?

“You’re going to be honest, just once, and then forget about it.”

Ben closed up his house and made his way to Chase’s place. He couldn’t live like this anymore, on tenterhooks every day, wondering what Chase was thinking, how he was feeling. Wanting to tell Chase he loved him, but not knowing how.

He had never felt so impotent in his life. But it was time to end that. He would finally admit all to Chase and live with the consequences. Today was the last day he was going to feel like this.

He jogged up the stairs and knocked on the door. “Hey, Chase, you home?”

His best friend opened the door, jeans on, but nothing on his gorgeous chest or feet.

“Hey, yeah. Come on in.”

Ben’s cock swelled within his jeans. His instant attraction to this man frustrated him, and he burst into Chase’s house.

“How did last night go?”

Chase pushed the door closed and frowned as he walked forward. “It went really well. What’s up, Ben?”

Ben clenched his fists tighter then opened them by force. Calm, he needed to stay focused.

“So, Ariana is it for you? You’ll mate with her?”

He began to pace, nervous energy working through his system and turning into anger. How could he have missed his chance to be with Chase?

Chase walked closer warily, approaching him how one would move towards an injured and angry bird. Chase had almost reached him now, and his brow knitted together. “Well, we’ve only had one night together, and she’s still at Uni, but yeah. I think so.”

Pain broke through Ben’s chest, making it feel like his ribs were being split open.

He stopped and gasped, putting a hand to his heart.

“Ben, seriously, what’s wrong?”

Ben growled and began pacing again. He couldn’t stay still, and if Chase touched him, he would surely scream.

“I don’t know how to tell you this. I’ve been wanting to talk to you for months, and it looks like I’ve run out of time.”

Inevitability settled into Ben’s mind, and he knew this was it.

Chase’s face was wary, his tone of voice gentle when he spoke. “What had you been wanting to tell me, Ben?”

Ben looked at him, his belly tight with worry. “I need to tell you ... that I...”

Ben stumbled over the words. How did you tell your male best friend that you were in love with him?

Chase leaned back against the wall and crossed his arms, that smug grin firmly in place. “If you’re going to tell me you want Ariana, too, then you’re going to have a fight on your hands.”

Ben clenched his fists, anger boiling up inside him. He opened his mouth and screamed at the man he had loved for a decade.

“I don’t want Ariana! I fucking want you! Don’t you get it? I don’t want to be your best friend who you fucked when you were drunk! I want to be your mate, too!”

Chase’s mouth dropped open, and his eyes widened. Then his eyes turned yellow, and he took a step forward. His huge hands reached for Ben, cupping his face and drawing it to his mouth.

Ben groaned and grabbed Chase about the waist, hauling his huge male into his body, absorbing Chase’s moan and squeezing his arse.

He pulled back and grabbed Chase’s jean-covered arse. “I want you.”

He stared at the man he wanted above all else waiting for a sign that Chase felt the same.

“I...” Chase cleared his throat. “I want you, too,” Chase said, the words gravelly.

Ben dropped to his knees and unbuttoned Chase’s jeans in a hurry. He had never done this for his lover, their previous intimacies brief with almost no foreplay. Now, he could think of no other way to brand Chase as his own. His powerful eagle was close to the surface.

He opened up Chase’s jean placket, and his cock sprang out, pointing directly to Ben’s mouth. Thick, heavy, red, and swollen.

God, it’s beautiful.

He wrapped his hand around the base and looked up at his man.

“I want to suck you so bad.”

He waited, wanting the confirmation that Chase wanted it, too.

His mate didn’t respond with words, but slid his fingers into Ben’s short hair and pulled him closer. That was all the permission he needed.

Ben smiled as he licked the tip. Yum.

“Chase ... are you here?” Ariana’s voice shocked them both, and Ben turned his head, ready to jump up.

But he was already too late. She wasn’t coming in. She was already here.

 

Tamsin Bio:

 

Tamsin Baker is an Aussie girl who just discovered erotic romance ten months ago. Before that, she would read sexy romance, skipping the plot and looking for the all the naughty bits. Since then, she has written erotic romance and erotica novels of varying length and has had fourteen published (so far!). She absolutely loves reading and writing! She has two other jobs, including kids and a hubby too – but writing is a passion that she has to indulge for fear of insanity.

M/M is a passion of hers so even when she writes ménage, there is always an M/M story. She particularly enjoys writing female dommes, but she loves experimenting in all genres. Tamsin is learning to write and read more one step at a time. Soon, she’ll have stories published in every sub-genre of erotic romance – well that’s her aim anyway!

Excerpt:

With the phone to his ear, Cayden turned and looked at me, his sapphire gaze roaming from the hair piled in a messy bun atop my head, to my bubble-gum-pink-painted toenails before he smiled. My heart thrummed. Reaching out, he pulled me onto his lap where I willingly went, and picked up a pen from beside my laptop. Then, he crooked his head, holding the handset to the cordless in place against his shoulder to free his other hand and took a hold of mine. Curious, I wondered what he was up to. Cayden turned my hand over, palm side up. Swiped his fingers softly over my palm once. Wrote, I Love U,boldly across it. And then he curled my fingers closed, securing the words tight within the palm of my hand before he moved his hands from mine and took hol…
