I’d like to thank the birthday girl for having me as her guest today. Thank you Amber! Also, I’d like to thank all her wonderful readers for being so awesome every time I’ve been a guest on here. It is a blast to meet you all.
So, the short I have today comes from my Paranormal Dentistry for the Fanged and Friendly series. There is a poison dart frog named, Jude. This is a taste of his future HEA Paul. I hope you enjoy.
I’ll be giving away a PDF book of choice and a $10 Amazon Card to the winner.
A Paranormal Turkey
Paul blew out a breath as he realized that someone somewhere was fucking with him. There were so many strikes against him that day, he couldn’t believe it. He was alone on his birthday, it was Thanksgiving, and he was a turkey shifter.
Add to all that a bare fridge, and he had to take a grand trip to the grocery store. The store full of turkey murdering assholes! Yeah, the turkey in a store was different than being a shifter. However, Paul couldn’t help but grab his neck, waiting for the butcher to come and make him the next Thanksgiving meal.
I’ll avoid the meat section. Produce and then I’m getting the fuck out of here.
Paul puffed out his chest and glared at the store with determination as he charged in…and immediately suppressed a scream. There right in the front of the store was his beheaded brethren. Horror struck him, and he ran past them while cover his eyes.
“Monsters!” Paul gasped. Blindly he ran until he hit a hard wall and fell back, flat on his ass.
Paul glanced up to see a pair of jean-clad legs. So it wasn’t a wall, but his body sure felt like he’d hit one. Paul looked up farther to see an incredibly handsome man holding out his hand to help him up. The man had beautiful dark eyes and bright red hair that set him apart from all the rest. Add the knock-out smile and Paul forgot all about the victims he’d just seen in the grocery store and focused on the dimple in the guy’s chin. He recognized the guy—Jude, the owner of Everything Tastes Better Covered in Chocolate. Paul never went in that store, but word got around how good Jude was at working with chocolate, both in and out of his shop.
“Are you all right?” Jude asked.
“Fine.” Paul reached out, grabbed the man’s hand, and was pulled up. They were the same height at just a hair over five and half feet, but Jude was solid with muscle, while Paul was…well not so much.
Paul wanted to mold himself to the delectable looking cutie.
“Did you hear what I said?” Jude waved a hand in front of Paul’s face.
“Huh?” Paul brushed off his sweatshirt.
“I said the name’s Jude. What’s yours?” Jude smirked at him, and Paul shook himself. Sheesh, what the hell was wrong with him?
“Uh, Paul.” Smooth Paul, real smooth.
“What did you forget?” Jude pointed toward the produce section.
“Well, everything.” Paul pulled at his neck as he saw signs for an extra ten cents off a pound for turkeys. The bastards.
“You don’t have to break a sweat over it.” Jude chuckled.
“Am I?” Paul felt his forehead with his hand. It was indeed beaded in sweat.
“It’s nothing but pumpkin pie and dead turkeys in here. Nothing to harm you.” Jude laughed.
Paul gasped, and Jude’s eyes widened.
“Wait you’re not…” Jude began.
“I am.” Paul gritted his teeth.
“Well hell, they have frog’s legs in here too. It doesn’t mean Sergei is going to come out from behind his counter and butcher me. We’re human too.” Jude came closer to Paul, a little too close for simply running into each other for the first time.
“Say that next time you walk by a bunch a decapitated frogs and see how you feel.” Paul flexed his fists at his sides. He had to eat but going any farther in the store on this day seemed to be more than he could bear. “This birthday sucks.”
Jude raised a brow. “A turkey shifter having a birthday on Thanksgiving? Damn, that’s a tough break.”
“Tell me about it.” Paul scratched the back of his head and frowned.
A devilish smirk suddenly spread across Jude’s face. An incredibly hot smile. “Tell you what, I’ll go in there, get what I forgot, and you and me can have a night together. And I guarantee you’ll forget all about this fucked up day.”
Paul didn’t even hesitate, throwing caution to the wind, “I’m in.” He didn’t want to be alone on his birthday. Paul was getting a chance to have one hell of a time with Jude, the guy he thought was incredibly handsome from the distance, and Paul was going to take his fantasies and bring them to life.
Jude’s smile appeared wicked as he closed the distance and sucked on Paul’s lower lip. “Awesome. You like chocolate, Paul?”
“Love it.” Paul brushed his lips against Jude, thinking how this day was suddenly turning around.
“That’s good. Real good,” Jude said before he kissed Paul again.

Short, sexy and sweet— where a little love goes a long way.
That’s the best way to describe Jackie Nacht’s stories. She was introduced to M/M Romance through her sister, Stephani, and read it for years. Then, she thought it was time to put her own stories on paper. Jackie began writing short and sweet stories that ended with a happily ever after.
Thinking back to her own book addiction, where there were many nights Jackie stayed up way too late so she could read just one more chapter— yeah, right— Jackie decided to write short romances for young adults as well as adults. Hopefully, they will give high school and college students, or working men and women something they can read during their lunch hour, in between classes or just when they want to briefly get away from the daily stresses of everyday life.
