Never Give You Up
by Megan Slayer
GENRE: GLBT, Paranormal, Contemporary
Through time, distance and confusion, we will always find each other.
Galen Collins knows who he loves, but the vampire of his dreams, Anders Von, isn’t interested. What’s a vampire to do when he’s been rejected? Go to the clubs for sex. He’ll get Anders out of his mind one way or another. But there’s something wicked on the horizon in the form of a virus meant to wipe out supernatural beings. Forces who hardly know Galen are out to keep him and Anders apart. Will he allow the demons to win, or will he chase Anders to the ends of the earth?
Anders has always had a crush on Galen, but thingsneverworked out right time-wise. Galen is the one vampire to make his emotional heart race. He wants to strip Galen to his core and explore every inch of him. Will Anders take the chance to be with Galen and discover how well they fit together or will the virus take Galen before Anders makes his move?
Galen grunted. He stretched his feet and legs but didn’t speak.
“Well, alive as much as you can be.” Steele poked at the wound again. “Can you tell me what happened?”
Kynan waved to Anders. “A moment?”
Anders hesitated. He didn’t want to leave Galen’s side. For all he knew, Galen could be the next to die.
“We’ll stay in the room. I have some questions.” Kynan steered him to the edge of the space and lowered his voice. “Are you and Galen mates? Have you bonded?”
“No.” He hadn’t considered Galen as his mate. But after what had happened, he wasn’t convinced he didn’t love Galen as more than a friend. “We’re roommates. He’s my wingman and my best friend.”
“Uh-huh.” Kynan met Anders’s gaze. “Here’s the thing. If he’s been infected by something, then he should be dead. He’s not—not yet. If the rogues are involved in this, then they’d want him completely dead. Did you do anything to him? Feed him? Have sex with before he knew he was sick?”
He could lie, but why bother? “Vita told me he was probably in need of blood. I gave him some of mine. Just a few drops. I pushed it on him.”
Kynan nodded once. “Well, you might have saved him. The blood of the super’s pasha works wonders.”
“I’m not his pasha.” He wasn’t even sure there was a mate out there for him. He knew damn well there was one for Galen, but he couldn’t be.
“You could be surprised.” Kynan elbowed Anders. “We’ll figure out what’s wrong with him. We will. Trust me.”
“I’m trying to.”
“Right,” Kynan said. “Don’t think about it. I know when I see supers in love. Call it a crossover from Lexa’s gift, but you’re meant for each other.”
He could argue but didn’t. Kynan’s radar was off. He loved Galen and needed him, but they weren’t pashas. He knew better. Galen wasn’t interested in him. He’d never said, yes, let’s fuck. Galen was the solid friend. His other half. He glanced over at Galen. His body warmed and blood rushed to his cock. He longed to sink his dick into Galen and lose himself. He scrubbed his hand across his mouth. What would it feel like to kiss Galen? Not a drunken kiss or a dare but a real one?
Maybe he did have a crush on Galen. Maybe…
