Fear gripped his chest and he rolled to his side, burying his face into the crook of his elbow while his other hand rubbed his pained stomach. The merman breathed and groaned, grunted and cried out the pain returned every few minutes, assaulting his pregnant stomach. It was unlike anything he’d felt before.
I freakin loved this story. Tobias and Mal are true mates, but due to blockers they dont know this. I adired the way the author made this one a slow burn true mates story, normally they meet and its insta love, but these two took there ever lovin time and it was awesome. A wonderfully well written story with characters you will just love…Hazel is a hoot….and a storyline that was a page turner. Aslo the fact that it is set in the world of the Moores is a truly awesome added bonus.
She’d gotten dressed and waddled down to the kitchen to begin her baking. At least now, she knew she could have breakfast ready before the children woke up. She knew she was in for a long labour because of her body’s physical shape so she didn’t want to waste any time. Clive ran in before she was done, “Oh, did I wake you?” Alexis asked her eldest son, of almost 11. He nodded and sat down groggily. “Well, breakfast will be ready soon. Why don’t you go wake up your brothers and sisters?” He groaned and got back up again slumping back down the hall to go get them. It was about 20 minutes late before all 7 of her children that were able to walk had sat down at the table. “I didn’t want to wake up Tommy.” Clive told
Jerricho, Jerry, is a librarian and he’s also an Anzuni Demon Prince.

Jerry loves his parents and knows he must obey the laws of the Anzuni clan, but he would love to keep the hard-won freedom he’s had for the last few years. After meeting his ‘fiancée’ for the first time, he also desperately wants just one night with the human man he’s fallen in love with, Rex. Thanks to his friend Keith, he gets that chance. Jerry must leave after their one night and return home to his parents, and it breaks his heart and also Rex’s, but more importantly he later finds out he’s pregnant, and of course, Rex is the father.
Naruto, a young omega that is now an ANBU invites two males, Kakashi and Akatora, to chase him down and ‘play’ with him during his heat, but he ends up with more then he asked for; he gets a whole ninja harem in need of attention.
“I’m sorry…I’m so sorry…I couldn’t protect you from yourself…” Lance cried, muttering out apologies one after the other and just overall feeling like the shittiest person in the world for what he had just done to Keith. He felt his hair being played with and just let Keith do whatever he wanted to try and comfort him.
Karter Jenks is younger than I expected (23), but is ready for a mate, especially seeing fellow constable Bloom so happy. He does not expect to find his mate when searching for a burglary suspect, or for him to have a kid.
“Just push.” Joel instructed, letting his large hands move over the man’s heavily pregnant belly as he felt the man push with each strong contraction. The egg started to crown and the man was starting to make progress when yet another gush of fluids came out, startling the laboring man.
Ryker is poised to become Prime Alpha of the Staynton Valley Pack, taking over from his father. But Ryker’s sexuality concerned his pack. Because he preferred mating with men his pack questioned whether he could take a female mate and perpetuate his line. Ryker thought this was ridiculous and didn’t feel the need to procreate just to satisfy some old tradition. After an argument with his father about this issue, he takes off to clear his head and finds himself at a shifter bar where he finds something, or rather someone, a rare male Omega.
Sitting in an overly expensive sofa, a pregnant young man was currently watching over several toddlers play on the floor before him. His hand came up to rest on the mound that was his swollen stomach, his womb full with overdue twins. He sighed and rubbed at the stretched skin, his swollen belly exposed. Honestly, I knew mob families were big but this is getting out of hand… He blushed at the thought.
This novella isn’t groundbreaking writing or anything, but the writing is proficient and consistent, the story well crafted despite the cliche plot, and the book overall engaging and enjoyable to read. Despite being rough around the edges, this author has actual talent, and I would really like to see what they could do with a full-length book and a good editor.
Hearing the banter between the two of them, I look over and smile before turning my attention back to cooking Tom’s sandwich. Nearly a decade ago, I never would have thought of getting married, much less having children. But now here I am; a loving husband, two beautiful children, and he’s giving me a third… Didn’t think I’d ever be this lucky.
~Keith hugs her and gives her a big kiss on the cheek. Lance woke up to the sound of laughter from his four year old daughter. “Merry Christmas sweethearts.”, Lance said to his husband and daughter before placing a kiss on both of their foreheads. “Wait! We forgot Rosie!”, Kim said, running to Rosie’s little nursery.

They live in a world where omegas are treated as less than everyone else, where they are considered dumb and are only seen as wombs. We see them fighting for their love and against the system that has been imposed by society. In the surface, this seems as another mpreg story, but it goes deeper than that.
I’ve never watched these reality shows, they’re not my thing tbh, but they’re undeniably and awesome premise for a fic, and this one really does the concept justice by putting meat on the bones and taking enough time over it to make it feel like a proper story, not just a precursor to Sterek getting together. I followed this as a WIP and read each part as soon as it came in because I was enjoying it so much. Good stuff.
“G-Get it out then!” Francis shouted, writhing in the water. “I don’t care..haa…reach in and pull the fucker out if you have to!” He swore loudly, feeling his opening start to split and bleed as the baby forced itself out.
All logic told Spy no, it would not be a good idea due to their jobs and current living situations. But… looking down at her, having had her in him for nine months (even if he had hated the whole experience) then finally getting to see her… he just did not want to give her up. He couldn’t. Was it selfish? Probably. Most likely. A war zone was certainly no place for children. Spy knew that from personal experience. If he really loved this child, then shouldn’t he want her to be safe? There had to be a way to have it both ways. To send her away somewhere while he and Sniper fought, then bring her back when the fighting was over. Of course, Miss Pauling! She could organise babysitters to come and take care of her during working hours away from 2Fort. Forge documents so no one would know he was her father. He finally knew the answer.
A surge of power unlike anything he’d ever experienced went through the mage’s body. It was like a flicker of lightning, and then it was gone. He put a human hand on his stomach. A strange warmth had run through him like he had swallowed heated sand.
Fed up with the world and the lies he’s been fed. Cat shifter Loris decides to forgo the human life for life on the street as a stray. But when mother nature and a rival species known as canines strike, Loris ends up making rash decisions. Decisions that might make him run into his death.

Review: Fated and “instant” mate stories are often drafted with too much of a trope that seems incredibly artificial and unbelievable. For a short story, this author handles the “insta-mate” phenomenon with some fineness and more credulity than many novels. While the pairing was a central theme, surrounding setting and plot devices nicely brought out and reinforced the hesitant yet strong connection between the two, yielding for a pretty decent, quick, and enjoyable read.
Next up I have a re-release of Guarding My Heart. It’s about a rich kid who has had his heart broken and the bodyguard who comes to watch over him when there are some threats against him. It’s fascinating to me how differently I write now. I’ve added a ton of new words and completely changed the ending of the book to give the readers MORE!!! That was one criticism of the book originally, that it ended too abruptly. I did that a lot more when I was a new author.
Jamie said. Jamie went into the room with the pool. He sat on the birthing ball until he felt another contraction, they were about 2 minutes apart and lasted about a minute long. When he felt one coming he decided to get down in a squat position, leaning agents the couch. He moaned, trying to not push. Jess came into the room with some towels. Jess checked Jamie again.
They went on with their day, Jamie walked around the house trying to get the baby to drop. Jess cleaned the house because she knew the baby would be coming soon, after what she saw earlier that morning.

“Does that answer your question?” He asked. Lance weighed the answer choices. One the one hand, yes, yes it did, completely, but on the other hand, no, no it did not, not at all. But honestly, what was the point in thinking hard about it? It wasn’t like Keith was going to give him time to decide anyways.
Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It’s the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.
Joel watched the man squirm against the contraction as a small egg suddenly slipped out and he caught it, cleaning it and putting it on the bed beside the man. Another huge gush of fluids exited the man and he saw blood trickling out of his hole.
Pregnancy and childbirth is an experience like no other. In fact it is nothing short of a miracle. Thousands of babies are born every day but every experience is different. It is often portrayed as easy or taken for granted that it will all be plain sailing but as a mother myself I know this is not always the case.
