Due to a cock-up… Blood Ties is now live!!!
I know, it was my mistake. I uploaded a new document for pre order today but forgot to put the date in!! lmao!!!
Keagen sauntered into the first bar he came across. It was dark and dingy and only two other people took up space at the bar. Scanning thoroughly before pulling out a stool, there was a sudden rush of blood to his cock when the pretty bartender greeted him with a smile.
“Hey, stranger, what can I get you?”
“Now you’re asking.” Keagen grinned. “Coffee, please.” He couldn’t help notice her scent and smiled. She had to be the girlfriend. If he dropped in, that would make for an interesting meeting.
Lyssa poured the tall, dark, and extremely handsome punter a mug of coffee.
“Are you new in town, or just passing through?” Furnishing him with a cheery smile and wide eyes, she couldn’t resist a flirt. Aside from Gabriel, he was the only other good-looking man she’d set eyes on.
“Oh, I’m here to check on family.” He sipped his coffee while glowering over the rim at Lyssa. Noticing pert breasts with peaked nipples, his cock thickened under the restraints of his jeans.
“You have family? Here?” Raising both brows, Lyssa wondered who in Dewburn Falls had relatives this hot. “What’s your name?”
Keagen breathed deeply before pursing his lips. He wasn’t up for sharing right now, although he was sure he could fob her off with a line. “I’m adopted, so my name wouldn’t be familiar to you, but you can call me Keagen.” He leaned against the counter. “What’s your name, princess?”
“Lyssa.” She beamed. She liked the way he smiled. He was utterly delicious in a wicked ‘I’ll rip out your heart’ kind of way.
“That’s a pretty name for a pretty lady.” He flashed another dazzling smile. “Are you spoken for, or may I ask you out to dinner?”
Blushing, and suddenly feeling cornered, Lyssa grimaced. “Yeah, I’m kind of involved with someone, but thanks for asking.”
“Well I guess I’ll have to eat alone, then.” Keagen thought for a moment. She had to be involved with his prey. He snapped his head toward the door and watched another young and attractive female move closer. His brow arched. Dewburn Falls had much to offer. His nostrils flared as the scent drifted his way. Wolf. Another one. There’s no wonder he’d moved here; there’s wall-to-wall pussy. Well, sort of.
Lyssa smiled. “Hi, Sally. How’s it going?”
“Don’t ask.” Sally sidled behind the bar and grabbed a beer from the freezer. “I know it’s your night off, but I have a problem at home, and I wondered if you’d come back and work the last couple of hours for me? I’ll work your full shift tomorrow night. Would you do that, hon?”
Lyssa sighed. She hated working two shifts in one day. However, Sally had swapped with her in the past last minute. “Yeah, sure.”
“Thanks, doll. I’ll square it with the boss.” Sally glanced at the customer and sighed. Noticing his eyes focusing on her larger than average breasts, she smirked. “You need a refill hon?” She sauntered closer and gave him a better view as she leaned across to fill his mug. “Not seen you in town before. You planning on staying long?”
“Depends.” Keagen slowly licked his lips.
“Whether there’s anything interesting enough to keep me.” He smoothed the flat of his hand over his hair. He’d tied it up in a man-bun, but a few stragglers had broken free.
Lyssa rolled her eyes as he flirted with Sally. Only two minutes earlier, she was a princess. Shaking her head, she should have known. Hot men like him don’t wait around, and if someone’s unavailable, they move on fast. No harm done. She was only flirting anyway, but it still annoyed her that she’d fallen for his charms.
The unmistakable honk of Gabriel’s horn outside made her squeal. He never let her down and always kept his promises. He restored her faith in hot men; they weren’t all cut from the same cloth.
“Okay, hon. I’m outta here.” She winked at Sally, then bolted for the door and yelled over her shoulder. “Have fun.”
Keagen’s eyes narrowed. Interested to know who the hottie was dating and if his suspicions were correct, he jumped off the stool and made for the door after throwing $10 on the counter.
A beaten-up truck pulled away and headed off down the street before turning right on a road leading out of town. That had to be him. Keagen ran to his car and followed the direction of the truck, keeping a safe distance. He didn’t want him spooked.
