Carnal Lust, 2

The last place Simone wants is to be is in the middle of the wilderness all by herself. She's so out of her comfort zone, she's shocked she can even funtion. When she comes face to face with a bigfoot, instead of screaming her bloody head off, she’s drawn to him.

Blake can't believe it when he catches the first scent of his mate on the wind. He thought he’d finally lost what little humanity he had left, expecting to be feral for the rest of his life. After his first look at Simone, the universe that had tortured him for the last six years tilts, and he feels normal and happy—things he never thought would happen again. But good things never tend to last...

The first book in the CARNAL LUST series can be found in the ALPHA MALE anthology.

Be Warned: anal sex


Simone arched her neck to give him more room to touch her. It was the most wonderful feeling in the world, and she somehow knew she’d crave his touch for the rest of her life.

Her breasts felt heavy, and her nipples burned as he sucked on them, making her desire rise and her need for him grow.

“Blake,” she cried out, and her fingers pulled at his hair.

He lifted his head. “I know, baby. I need you, too, but I want our first time to be as special as possible.”

“It will be when you get inside of me,” she said. She wasn’t above begging because she ached more than ever, and it felt like her skin was electrified. The heat in her cunt and cervix felt like she was sitting in front of a blazing fire with her legs spread.

He must have felt her distress because he moved up between her legs, lined his cock up to her cunt, and started pressing in. If she hadn’t been so desperate for him, she would have made him stop. The size of him and the pressure she felt were starting to overwhelm her.

“Harder,” she said.

“I will, mate, just relax and let me get it in this first time. The last thing I want to do is rip you apart.”

Her nails dug into his arms, and she gritted her teeth, fighting back her need long enough for him to get in her. A scream tore from her mouth when he shoved the last few inches into her. God, yes. That’s what she needed.

“How are you doing, mate?”

She exhaled. “Good. I’d be better if you started fucking me.”

He chuckled. “You got it.” One of his hands cupped the back of her head and the other her hip to keep her in place as he glided in and out of her.

She raised her legs and crossed them behind him, opening herself up for him to go deeper.


“I’ve got you,” Blake said. “I’m close, too.”

They stared into each other’s eyes, and the connection she felt was so profound she had tears fill her eyes. Instead of freaking out, Blake licked them from her cheeks. “I feel it, too. It’s like our souls are touching.”

She hadn’t thought of that, and now that he said it, it did feel like their entire beings were meshing into one entity. He finally started to pick up his pace. She was relieved because she knew she’d get the release she needed, but the tightness in her abdomen was excruciating as it built.

“Hang onto me, mate,” Blake said.

She tightened her legs and wrapped her arms around his neck.

He was pounding into her so hard that she would have moved up the mattress if they hadn’t held onto each other.

“Come for me, mate,” he yelled.

She felt the orgasm rush over her, and then a burst of light filled her eyesight. The orgasm seemed to go on forever, and she started to see black dots in her vision, telling her she was very close to passing out. The thought didn’t terrify her like it should have because she knew Blake would take care of her and keep her safe.

Her scream mixed with his deep groan to fill every crevice in the room. He pressed some of his weight down onto her as his breathing slowed. God, she would never be able to express her feelings, and she didn’t think there were words profound enough to describe them.

Super steamy shifter romance!
Written by Ash J on 16th Apr 2023

I enjoyed this paranormal shifter romance. It was super steamy and I liked the characters, even the side characters. This was the first book in this series I've read and I will definitely check out the others. I do wish there was more of an issue or drama to the story but it was super steamy and an enjoyable read.

The only drama that really goes on is that they are learning to live together but there’s no problem with the sex it’s hot and steamy with plenty of it going on.

Simone never expected to find a mate when she got lost on her trip
Written by Rebecca G on 16th Apr 2023

Simone and her two best friends have gotten tired of living in the expensive city and dream of opening a bakery together. When circumstances cut their ties to the city, they take the chance and decide to move to a small town. The problem is Simone has to drive through the wilderness to get there. Her GPS stops working and she is lost. She stops when nature calls and before she can get back in the car, she sees a hot mountain man who looks a like a bigfoot to Simone. Blake picks her up and carries her to his cave claiming that she is his fated mate and that he is a wolf shifter. Simone is torn between the hot chemistry and pull between them and the fear that he is crazy. Blake proves that he can shift into a wolf and proceeds to spoil Simone in every way. Maybe she was fated to come here and find him.

Nice addition
Written by Diana R on 5th Mar 2023

I enjoyed the 2nd book in this series. We were left in the first wondering what happened to Simone. Here we read about her and her mate. I enjoyed the book and was happy that Blake found his fated mate. This book is very low angst and issues are based around their relationship and making it work. It was a short, sweet and to the point.

Written by KMH Romancessessed Reviews on 5th Mar 2023

I'll admit before reading this I went back to the anthology mentioned in the blurb and re read the first story again, not that it needed it but I found it made me enjoy it as it felt more apart of the growing series. I really loved the paranormal mates element and how intense and well paced it was between the main characters which also gave me chance to just dig in and devour this one! This book had it all, giving you want you needed in a paranormal romance and I cannot wait to read more from this series!

Not bigfoot
Written by RahiaLeight on 5th Mar 2023

I really liked this story. It followed book 1 nicely and I loved that it had a twist that made Blake different from the Alpha. Simone matched him nicely and wasn't a withering, weeping mess. Fun read. Fast read.

Written by booknotez on 5th Mar 2023

A short cute HOT story!!!! Loved all the friendships. All characters are very well written. And I loved flow of the book.

Fun fast read
Written by LBing on 5th Mar 2023

This was a fast read that takes Simone and shows her that there is way more to the world than she ever thought. Blake, a wolf shifter, knows right away that she's his fated mate but he's so bullish in his dealings with her that he risked losing her... She appreciated the connection between them but really needed to also be her own person. It was quite the struggle for them but, thankfully, they found ways to compromise ;P Expect a fair bit of steam in this fast paced story. Good fun!

Written by Amanda1444 on 5th Mar 2023

Simone is on her way meeting her friends and has car trouble. When she stops on the side of the rode, she doesn't expect a huge mountain man to kidnap her and take her to his cave. Blake thought he would go feral because he never thought that he would meet his mate, but when he saw Simone on the side of the road, he knew that she was the one. Simone thought that she should protest more about being kidnapped but feels the mating heat

Fast and furious!
Written by Laura S. on 5th Mar 2023

This is a fun, not too long story to read when you have a couple of hours to kick back and relax! Simone is on her way from the city to visit with her friends, and of course her car breaks down in the middle of the country! Blake, on the verge of becoming feral from not having a mate; smells her and recognizes that she is his long awaited mate! The steam starts almost immediately as the mating heat kicks in for both of them! But mating heat doesn't necessarily mean an HEA; Blake needs to curb his possessiveness and give Simone some of the freedoms that she is used to. Will he be able to let Simone be apart from him? Will Simone be able to put up with Blake's possessiveness? Can they find the love and affection they need to move forward or will Blake turn feral? This is a steamy, well written story that will pull you in and keep you turning the pages to the end.

Simone is miles from her destination when her car breaks down, leaving her stranded on a deserted stretch of road. Even worse? She’s pretty sure she’s just come face-to-face with Bigfoot. Only Bigfoot turns out to be a wolf shifter who is her fated mate -- and he’s not about to let her go. Fun, sweet story.

Super fast and super hot-Great read

This book was non stop steam from start to finish. Author delivers intense storyline with a couple of additional stories entwined in the book. I really enjoy these type of books. Sometimes it is nice to just read a book and finish fast.

Claiming My Mate
Written by Karen99 on 12th Feb 2023

Great Read! WOW Steam level HOT! HOT! HOT! What a fast paced fun read. Blake scented his mate, captured her and took her to his man cave, explained she was his mate and proceeded to have the most amazing continuous sex with her. Simone was shocked, one minute she had stopped for a toilet break on her way to meet her two best friends and the next moment being thrown over the shoulder of one huge man who told her she was his mate and proceeded to demonstrate. Enjoy this super steamy shifter read with wonderful characters.

Short shifter romance
Written by Michelle E on 12th Feb 2023

This was a short and sweet shifter romance. Instalove/lust is a big theme throughout the book. Blake finds his mate Simone with her car stranded by the road, and he tells her she is his mate and takes her home. Simone does not put up much of a fight, and most of the drama in the book is about them learning to live and grow together and mesh their plans for the future. Overall I liked the book and am interested to see if there is another book about her friend and the pack alpha.

Paranormal romance
Written by Michele77 on 12th Feb 2023

Simone has car trouble as she is heading to meet her friends. What follows is a hot shifter romance. Loved the characters and the storyline was intense.

Shirt and sweet!
Written by Kimmijane on 12th Feb 2023

This was insta-love (lust) at its finest. Some of us not so modern women would love some hunk to pick us up and take care of us and “mate all the time”. This was a fun read!

Enjoy reading this too much!
Written by Diana A on 12th Feb 2023

This new series are really nice. I enjoy this short stories and can not wait for the next book. I also like how the stories are standalone but also joined.

A nice fresh take on shifters and their mates
Written by Sarah ES on 12th Feb 2023

A great book about shifters finding their mates. The characters and world building were done pretty good, but my favorite thing about this book was what happened after a mate was found. The fact that the newly mated couple shacked up and stayed together nonstop for quite awhile was interesting and came with several spicy and steamy love scenes!! The foreshadowing at the end of the book is great because we know there are more books to come.

Good book
Written by Jamee h on 12th Feb 2023
