A Sanguine Flashfic from Lou Harper

“Angel, you’re doing it wrong.” Harvey stretched sleepily and the sheets slipped to his waist.

Gabe looked down at his lover still in bed. “Doing what wrong?”

“Your jeans—you’re putting them on. They’re supposed to stay off.”

“The sun’s setting. It’s time for you to rise and shine.”

“Oh, I’m rising all right.” Harvey slipped a hand under the sheets. “But don’t expect me to shine. I’m not that kind of vampire.” His lips parted in a wicked smile and he swept the tip of his tongue along his teeth, from one exposed eyetooth to the other.

Anticipation stirred inside Gabe—Harvey’s frisky mood was pulling him in. He sat at the edge of the bed. “What sharp teeth you have.” The words came from old memories and Gabe recognized their familiarity only as he spoke them.

Harvey picked on them right away. “The better to bite you with, my scrumptious.”

Harvey loved role-playing and Gabe was always happy to go along, but now he was confused. “Wait, are we doing Little Red Riding Hood? Who’s who? Don’t tell me you’re grandma.”

“Grandma moved to Florida. I’m a very hungry and horny Little Red and you’re the Big Bad…Naughty Wolf here to eat me out.” Harvey’s nostrils flared and he reached for Gabe. “Now, about those jeans…”
Hee, that picture inspired Lou Harper to give us a little taste of Harvey and Gabe from her Sanguine books. Temper Sanguine is available for preorder at Samhain now, and will be available at all retailers in early June. It's the second novel in the series. I reviewed the first book, Spirit Sanguine, a story I enjoyed. And because Lou loves us, there's a free Sanguine story to get you all excited for more Gabe and Harvey. (Barnes & Noble +++ Smashwords +++ All Romance Ebooks +++ Amazon +++ Amazon UK)

Gabe Vadas’s slayer ancestors would be spinning in their graves if they knew that not only is his boss a vampire, so is his lover. But that lover, Harvey Feng, is cooking something up in his lab that he seems reluctant to disclose.

The secrets they keep from each other and the nightmares they share are driving a wedge between them.

Harvey fell off the vegetarian wagon with one taste of his lover’s blood. Except recently it’s been having some unusual—and disturbing—side effects. And he fears their connection has awakened something dark and dangerous.

Sent to New York City to help the new top vamp clean up the mess the old one left behind, Gabe finds more than a few stray feral vampires. A doctor with a dubious history is hell-bent on creating a new race of unkillable bloodsuckers. 

The investigation takes Gabe and Harvey across an ocean, and deep into the past. Where they discover demons that have the power to reach across the centuries to destroy them both.
Product Warnings
Contains a tasty Hungarian goulash of dirty boys doing dirty things, bilingual dirty talk, evil scientists, shifty-eyed lab assistants, fun with lab rats, and smexy times in romantic Old Europe. Jó étvágyat!
