Publisher: Ellora's Cave

Book three in the Unveiled Seduction Series,
Talathion Frostbane was tasked with saving his people and took
on the responsibility unflinchingly. Yet all it takes to throw his 
entire existence into chaos is one encounter with the wyvern-
shifter he spurned two hundred years before. The passion between
them is as strong as ever, but there's no escaping the expectations
of the clan. And giving in to the all-consuming desire for the
dragonkin would have devastating consequences.

When Herve Cinq a Sept travels to the Fey city of Leaich,
searching for answers after someone tries to kill him, what he finds
rocks his world in a variety of ways and leads him down a path of
inescapable hunger. As he finds himself on his knees, lost in desperate need and heading for heartbreak, he realizes why as a
species, the dragonkin no longer believe in love. It's so easy to
lose everything--pride, independence, control--when the one you
want to claim can never be yours.

Pulling away, he stumbled aside to lean against the wall, unable to find his footing, either physically or emotionally.
"You okay?" Herve was there, gripping his biceps, holding him up.
"Tala, are you okay?"
"Yes." By the Godess, it was the only word he could get past the
constriction in his throat, the renewed desire overtaking him. Even to his ears his voice sounded strange, deep and strong, echoing in the enclosure. "Yes."
The concern in Herve's eyes deepened. "Let's get out of here."
"No." Reaching out, he wrapped one arm around the wyvern's neck, the other around his waist so as to pull him near. "Oh no, no."
This need couldn't wait, couldn't be denied. Everything in him--
his spirit, magic, body--strained to have the wyvern as close as possible, wanting to feel his domination, be consumed by his passion. Planting his hands on the glass so they bracketed Tala's shoulders, Herve tried to keep their bodies apart, but the great frame was shivering, the harsh rush of his breath betraying his desire.
Without thought Tala loosed his magic once more, felt it wrap around Herve in an unbreakable grip.
"Closer." He tugged with hands and elven power, refusing to be denied.
"No, Tala." It was a growl, but even as it left his lips there was the
first hot brush of skin on skin.
"I need you." Goddess, how he needed, yearning beyond anything he'd known before clawing for release. "Closer."
Their mouths met, Tala opening for the hard thrust of the dragonkin's tongue, moaning at the scrape of teeth against his lip. But still Herve held his body away and Tala tightened his hold in response. He wanted to tell Herve it would be okay, that he needed his strength and force now, more than he ever had before. Needed to test his newfound freedom by surrendering it to the man he loved. But he couldn't break the kiss, didn't want to lose even a scintilla of the contact.

Interested in all things historical and hysterical, Anya describes herself as intensely curious, (although the word 'nosy' has been
bandied about) and a life-ling people watcher. Using what she's
discovered about people, places and various weird and wonderful
things, Anya has written contemporary, historical and paranormal/fantasy romance novels, novellas and short stories for Samhain Publishing, Ellora's Cave, Cleis Press and Spice Briefs.
