Storm’s Faeries

StormsFaeries

The Fates do enjoy their little amusements.

Storm O’Malley thought she’d always be a beat cop. But when she helped catch a serial murderer, she became a detective and a member of the elite Homicide squad. Now she’s got a murder to solve and a new reason to call on the gorgeous professor she met on the Dean case.

The first time Professor Tristan Lisalli met Storm, she was off limits because he couldn’t afford to get mixed up in a high-profile case. No supernatural could. Much less a noble of the Sidhe court. But after that case was solved, he’d fully intended to challenge his cousin Pierce with the seduction of a woman—with the seduction of Storm. But now Storm is involved in another high-profile case. A murder again, but with a difference. Treasure.

No fey creature can resist the legendary Medici Chalice of Eros. But if what Tristan suspects is true, then the real treasure is Storm. He thinks she just might be his forever wife—and Pierce’s as well.

Please note: A previous edition of this story was published by Ellora’s Cave.

Connected Books: Supernatural Bonds

Witches, Weres, faeries, elves, dragons, Drui and demons, there’s something for everyone as each heroine meets her perfect hero—or heroes in a world where the supernatural entities calling it home hide their existence from anyone who isn’t a mate. The stories in the Supernatural Bonds series don’t need to be read in order, though DYLAN'S WITCH, book 10, is better enjoyed after having met some of the heroines and heroes of the previous stories.

StormsFaeries

Apparently she wasn’t the only one who wanted to eat him up. Storm frowned as a couple of women stopped in front of the booth, blocking her view of the delicious university professor and causing her aggravation meter to go up a notch—the way it did when she was in uniform and had to deal with a particularly obnoxious drunk.

She shook her head, trying to clear her mind and suppress the unexpected feeling of possessiveness. Get a grip here! She had never fought over a man in her life, and she was not going to start with this one—no matter how many erotic images flitted through her thoughts, and there were plenty of them.

She’d spent more time thinking about her brief encounter with Tristan than she’d ever admit to. She’d even gone so far as to pull up the university catalog to see what classes he taught.

She had not signed up for one of them. Her self-respect demanded that she draw the line somewhere.

Besides, she had a feeling that there were no audit spots available. Hell, there was probably a waiting list—a long, long waiting list of female students who wanted to be dazzled by his…knowledge.

He stood then, saying something to the women so that they turned and glowered at Storm before moving away from the booth. Storm’s heart skipped a beat then raced when his smile reached out and stroked her from the inside out, reaching deep and brushing against every erogenous zone she possessed in the process.

“I took the liberty of ordering a glass of wine for you,” he said when she got to the table. His hand enclosed hers, not shaking it as she’d intended, but bringing it to his mouth instead and brushing his lips against her knuckles.

For a shimmering instant Storm was dazzled, unable to look away as the golden haze of lust surrounded them both. And then his mouth quirked upward in the same smile that had caused her heart to race when she’d visited him in his office, only here, now, it eased them from staring into each other’s eyes into taking their seats.

“Thanks again for being willing to help,” Storm said, retreating behind the case before she did something out of character—like suggest they walk on the beach until they found a place where they could make love.

She took a deep breath and corrected herself. Have sex. Let’s not confuse fantasy with reality here. Her cunt clenched, not caring what she called it, as long as the ache was soothed.

A waitress appeared next to the table, barely acknowledging Storm as she set their drinks down. Even after Tristan had placed several bills on her tray and told her to keep the change, she lingered, her presence like a crisp fall breeze that clears the air as it passes.

Storm blinked, grateful for the interruption. Of its own accord, her hand covered the necklace Aislinn had given her where it rested under her shirt.

It burned warm and comforting in her palm, but more importantly, the feel of the smooth male faeries holding the crystal somehow grounded her, somehow made her feel…back in control—even if she was still horny.

Tristan murmured something and the waitress finally moved away. The grin he directed at Storm shot right to her heart, and yet she had the presence of mind to joke, “I guess that happens to you all the time. At least she ignored me. I had to check my clothing for burn holes the day I came by your office. Your coeds didn’t like seeing me there. Just walking down the hallway felt like running the gauntlet.”

His smile and husky laugh made her want to lean across the table and press her lips to his. “Not my coeds. Though I count myself lucky that you were courageous enough to contact me again. I’ve thought about your visit often and followed your success in the media.”

Tristan lifted his glass and swallowed, the simple play of tanned skin over muscle enough to claim Storm’s attention while his casual admission had her nipples going tight and hard as her panties grew wetter. She lifted her wine glass and followed suit, glad to have something to moisten her suddenly dry mouth with.

Was he being honest? Had he really thought about her? Or was he merely engaged in a verbal dance of seduction?

Did it matter? Would she really pass up a chance to be intimate with him?

No.

She tried to live each day to the fullest, to enjoy herself. It was her nature, and an acknowledgement of the danger inherent in her job, the gut-level understanding that the next car she pulled over or the next suspect she tried to bring in could be the one who ended her life.

So no. If spending time with him led to further intimacy, well…

As if sensing the direction of her thoughts, Tristan reached over and took her free hand in his. “Would you care to dance?”

Other couples were already moving to the dance floor as the band transitioned to a slow, moody melody. Storm set her wine glass down on the table and let him ease her from the booth and into his arms.

They were a perfect fit.

Storm closed her eyes and savored the brush of his chest against her tight nipples, the rub of his erection against her swollen, needy clit as he held her against his body, surrounding her with his masculine scent. Her breath caught when his lips touched her neck, pressing hungry kisses along sensitive skin, moving upward to her earlobe. She almost cried out when he teased it with his teeth before tracing the rim of her ear with his wet, sensuous tongue. And all the while, his hands stroked along her back, her shoulders, her sides, the top of her buttocks.

Her hands moved in tandem with his, discovering the contours of his body as he discovered hers, the firm muscles of his back, his sides, his shoulders. She luxuriated in the warmth radiating off his body, surrounding and caressing her like a perfect spring breeze, the pleasure of being held by him somehow making her heart feel light, her spirit carefree.

Tristan breathed in the scent of her, rejoiced in the feel of her soft skin. She was the one. His forever wife. She had to be for her to take over his thoughts so thoroughly. For her to command his body so easily.

His cock throbbed and yet he savored this closeness, this harmony of movement as the music surrounded them like a heavy fog, encasing them in a world that wasn’t spoken, only felt. It was sweet agony and painful need.

He parted from her only when the music ended and the band moved into an upbeat, catchy tune meant for energetic steps and swirls. But rather than return to their table, he took her hand and led her outside. “Walk on the beach with me,” he coaxed. Dance with me underneath the stars as the fey have always done.

That was how it played out in my head as I read this.”

Their love story is truly a fairy tale that appeals to our senses and deepest wishes for happy ever afters! With all the eroticism, Ms Strong also weaves in the allure of elemental magic and engaging dialogue.

“STORM’S FAERIES the second book in the SUPERNATURAL BONDS series and a superb continuation to the evolving world of supernatural and mortal pairings. The story picks up not long after TRACE’S PSYCHIC ends and picks up speed almost from the beginning. Hold to your seats, ladies, you are in for a heck of a ride! There is loving aplenty and mystery galore that is advanced by great characterization and a winning plot.”

— Cynthia, A Romance Review

“SUPERNATURAL BONDS: STORM’S FAERIES is definitely not your everyday love story. It’s also a detective story with murders happening and missing artifacts so you get to work a little bit to solve it. Throw in some hot sex and two very handsome men and you’ve got a great book that you just can’t put down, or at least I couldn’t. I stayed up way to late on this one!”

— Julie Brown, The Road to Romance

“Jory Strong has written another hot, yet intriguing story. She blends the supernatural into the real world so smoothly that it’s hard to tell what is fact and what is fiction so you’ll believe in the faeries, elves, witches, etc. too before it’s all over! Tristan and Pierce are like two halves of a whole, one with blue eyes and one with green who will both make you melt with faerie fantasies of your own. Storm sure does and you won’t question why! I highly recommend you read TRACE’S PSYCHIC before reading STORM’S FAERIES to follow the flow of these interwoven stories. You won’t be disappointed in that one either. Ms. Strong is definitely at the top of her game and I look forward to reading her next paranormal romantica.”

— Holly, Euro-Reviews

STORM’S FAERIES: SUPERNATURAL BOND SERIES BOOK 2 by Jory Strong has all the mystery, suspicious suspects, magical spells, faeries, sexual tension, and eroticism that any book could have in it… STORM’S FAERIES does offer a ménage a trois between her characters Tristan, Pierce, and Storm that will leave you begging to trades places! I am recommending that you read TRACE’S PSYCHIC first because the two books interact with each other. I loved Ms. Strong’s book and cannot wait for the third and fourth installment the series!

— Connie Spears, Romance Junkies

“Jory Strong has created an intriguing and enticing world in her SUPERNATURAL BONDS series that is sure to tempt readers again and again as more of her sexy and magical bonds are created in future installments. STORM’S FAERIES is one supernatural ménage a trios that should not be overlooked.”

— Ann Lee, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

“The storyline kept me reading and reading and I couldn’t put this hot story down.”

— Blanche, Cupid’s Library Reviews

“Since I adore the paranormal realm, this is quickly becoming a favorite series. The women are strong, yet feminine, while the men are adorable in their slightly befuddled obsession with their women. The sex is frequent, hot enough to melt rock, and makes me wish I could find my own ‘supernatural bond’.”
