J.C. Hay Shares How He and His Story Fit into #PetsInSpace 3


Bring on the Pets In Space

Tomorrow sees the release of Embrace the Passion: Pets in Space 3, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve loved reading the previous two editions, and being invited to contribute to this year’s anthology had me literally jumping for joy around my office. Not just because I’d be writing alongside some of the luminaries in the genre (and seriously, the contributor’s list looks like my bookshelf – Ruby Lionsdrake? Veronica Scott? Anna Hackett? Tiffany Roberts?), but because it gave me a chance to be part of raising money for a great cause.

If you haven’t heard, Pets In Space donates a portion of its proceeds to Hero-Dogs.org – an organization that org improves the quality of life for veterans and first responders by raising, training, and placing service dogs and other highly skilled canines, free of charge, and then provides lifetime support of those partnerships. It’s a group I feel is doing really important work, and I’m thrilled to be part of an effort that has already raised more the $4,400 for them.

After the invite came the inevitable shock of nerves – the sense of needing to bring my A Game if I was going to be part of something so big. Picking the story was easy though – I knew I’d wanted to do a story about the commander from my TriSystems: Rangers books, and given that series’ focus on soldiers empathically bonded to their wolf partners, this anthology seemed like a perfect opportunity. My grieving, haunted CO needed someone vibrant to pull him out of his shell, and I found the perfect pair in the veterinarian Nafisi, and the wolf pup JJ. The two of them will cajole, push, and eventually drag Rafe toward his happily ever after, though as today’s excerpt shows, she’s not always happy about it:

Shadow of the Past – exclusively in Embrace the Passion: Pets in Space™ 3

By JC Hay

Loss casts a shadow you can’t outrun…

Commander Rafe Penzak is tired of jockeying a desk. With only months left before his forced retirement from the rangers, he decides to bend a few rules for one last mission: follow up on intelligence that vicious criminals have found the ranch that supplies the rangers’ umbra wolves. He’s ready to confront the reminder of his wolf’s death, but nothing in the Three Systems could prepare him for the spitfire who runs the farm.

Veterinarian Nafisi Sultana has run her wolf breeding program her way since the death of her husband. The last thing she wants is another ranger taking up space, correcting her methods, or being underfoot. But she can’t miss the pain and sorrow that haunts the greying commander, and her need to heal others pulls her into his orbit despite the agonizing memories he wakes in her.

With storms, raiders, and a renegade wolf pup driving them together, Nafisi and Rafe have to set aside their damaged past, or they’ll never be able to save something they both want more—a future.

Excerpt

Before Rafe could get any more maudlin, he followed Nafisi into the living room. She had stripped out of her survival gear, the plas-rifle leaning against the wall as she hung the heavy coat and pants in the closet. Underneath she wore simple, utilitarian clothes, and for an unvarnished second, he let his gaze skim over her.

She was about his age, maybe slightly younger, but he knew more than most what time and tragedy could do in tandem. She had a mature build to match—heavy in the hip and bust, just the way he liked. Or would have liked if he were capable of such a thing. Her shoulder-length hair had probably once been blue-black in its intensity, a perfect match for the raw umber of her complexion, but the years had leached some of the color away and left visible streaks of white.

If she noticed him staring, she gave no indication. “You can stand there if you want, but I’m not pretending like you’re a welcome guest. I’ve got shit to do, and I’m not going to change my schedule to accommodate you.” She pointed first toward the back of the room and then toward a hallway. “Kitchen’s there, and the bathroom’s down there. I’d say make yourself at home, but please don’t.”

Rosie Hobbs is in trouble. Big trouble. The kind of trouble that has her scared to leave her apartment. When she first met Aaron he was a fun guy who liked to have a good time. Just the kind of man she prefers. But when he wants more, and she tells him she’s not interested, he loses it. Continuous phone calls, showing up where she’s at, vandalizing her property… She finds herself turning to an unexpected protector, her best friend’s ridiculously sexy brother.

Conner Montgomery is a lawyer and he deals with this type of BS every day. However, something about Rosie has him crossing the professional line. Is it her gorgeous smile? Her charm? Or the fact that he can’t even look at her without imagining her body wrapped around his? Whatever the case, when Aaron shows up at a get-together and scares Rosie half to death, Conner’s determined to make sure he can’t get anywhere near her again.

When the stakes get higher, and the threats more real, will Conner be able to keep Rosie protected, or will their soaring passion cloud their judgment?

Excerpt:

Conner yanked off his shirt, then made haste removing his shoes, socks, and jeans. He walked toward Rosie but stopped when he got directly in front of her. He’d fantasized about this nonstop, and it was going to go his way. Rosie liked to feel in charge, and that was fine with him, but not when she was in his damn bed. “Take off my boxers.”

Rosie swallowed and then did as she was told. She had to drop down to her knees to get them all the way off, and he fought the urge to feel himself in her mouth again. When she was done, she stood and looked at him expectantly. Yeah, something told him she loved being told what to do.

“Get on the bed and take off your dress.” Conner instructed through clenched teeth.

Rosie turned and walked to the bed, then bent over and crawled to the center on her hands and knees. Her ass swayed side to side in the air, her panty-clad pussy peeking out from beneath her dress. When she’d made it to the center, she turned to face him, still on her knees. She grabbed the hem of her dress and pulled it over her head, discarding it on the floor. She looked like a fucking goddess, her face flushed, lips swollen from her killer blowjob, wearing a provocative lacy black bra and panty set that perfectly hugged her voluptuous body.

“Now the bra.” Conner fisted his erection and began to stroke it as he watched her hastily rid herself of the garment. He smiled and walked toward her. “It would seem someone is in a hurry.”

“Yes,” she panted.

“Why are your legs shaking, baby?”

“Because I want you. I need you.”

“Soon, baby; but first, lie down.”

She paused for a second, then did as he instructed.

“Spread your legs for me.” He hissed under his breath when her legs fell to the side. Her panties were wet in the center from her arousal, and he had to grip the base of his dick hard to keep from coming. “Show me how you touched yourself.”

Rosie squirmed against the bed, no doubt in as much agony as he was, if not more. She trembled as she slid her fingers underneath the elastic of her panties, then cried out when they came in contact with her clit.

He watched as she pleasured herself, her fingers dipping in and out of the fabric. When he couldn’t take another second of the exquisite torture, he bent down in front of her and sucked on her sex through her panties.

When Lynette Montgomery’s older sister dies from breast cancer, she quickly steps in to take care of her two young nephews. The boys are sweet, caring, and Lynette has no idea what she’s doing. Terrified of failing her sister, she does everything she can to present herself as the parental figure she feels the boys need, even swearing off the sexy-as-can-be cop she just so happened to have a one-night stand with outside of her best friend’s house.

Robert Barletta is a decorated and respected cop with the San Antonio PD. After having just played a key role in bringing down Houston and San Antonio’s largest drug operation, he should be on top of the world. Unfortunately for him, he can’t get that one night with a smoking hot blonde temptress out of his head.

When he’s forced to take some time off, and the two come face to face, will they be able to keep their attraction on the back burner? Or has this game of cat and mouse just started?

Excerpt:

“Why did you need a vibrator in the first place?” he asked, tongue slowly gliding up and down her neck. “If you need help with something, all you have to do is ask.” He looked up and gave her a smile that she suspected incinerated every woman’s panties in a fifty-mile radius, and hers were no exception. Well, she wouldn’t have been an exception if she were wearing any, a realization that she was suddenly all too aware of as she felt her warm arousal beginning to coat her upper thighs.

“I didn’t know if you’d be interested in another, you know.” She was such an idiot. After what they’d done last time and the things they’d said, she was still shy?

“Another what, angel? Another fuck?” He dropped his hands to her breasts and fondled her nipples through her robe. “You should know by now that I can’t turn down anything you want. All you have to do is give the command.”

Could she be with him again? She’d said no relationships for a while after she got the boys, but this wasn’t a relationship. It just so happened that fate had dropped her a deliciously decadent present in the form of Robert Barletta on this weekend away; was she supposed to ignore that? Who was she to say “Eff you” to fate? That was plain bad manners.

Decision made, she summoned up every ounce of courage she had. With shaking fingers, she reached for the belt on her robe and slowly untied it so that it fell open, revealing herself to him. She felt him grow harder as he looked down at her body.

“Yes, please. I’d like another fuck.”

She thought he’d kiss her, but instead he moved back and then pushed her into his bedroom. He quietly shut and locked the door behind him, then turned back to her with a determined look in his eyes. She moaned as she felt his large hands rip the robe from her body. Her hands shook as she hastily tugged his pants until they were down to his ankles, his erection huge and for her alone. She had a sudden urge to have him in her mouth, and she wasn’t going to let this go any further until she did.

But first, she wanted what she’d been thinking about nonstop since their night together. She looked into his eyes and smashed her mouth to his in a searing kiss, then pulled away and dropped to her knees.
