THE CAT'S MEOW
Assassin's Pride #1
Coming November 20th
Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is not always a bad thing…
Noah Anderson is odd and he knows it. He has a strong obsessive compulsive disorder that keeps him organized but distances him from the world around him. He doesn't have any friends, family, or even a lover. He's never had a lover.
When he finds himself in the wrong place at the right time, Noah discovers that the dangers posed by having sex for the first time pale in comparison to having sex with the assassin that comes to kill him, even if it means his life.
Gage Tynan is a killer. It's what he's always been. And he excelled at his job until he jumped into the car of a passing motorist when his latest mission goes wrong. The man driving is so odd that Gage suspects he might have been sent to harm him. Gage has no idea that the little man that asks him to take his cat will change his life in ways he has no clue of.
Gage is dragged into a world of shifters and exiled kings, one where his strength will be called upon to keep Noah safe from the pride soldiers sent to keep him from taking the throne.

"Drive!" the dark haired man growled as he jumped into Noah's car. Noah stared. He didn't know this man. He'd like to know this man. He smelled wonderful. But Noah didn't know this man.
"Are you fucking deaf?" the man shouted as he pounded on the dashboard. He kept looking over his shoulder to the rear window as if he were searching for something. "I said drive."
Noah blinked in confusion, still staring. "Do I know you?" He had to ask. It wasn't like his memory of people was that good. He forgot he met people all the time. Maybe he did know this guy and he just forgot. It wouldn't be the first time.
"Drive, damn it."
"Where to?" Noah asked curiously, still feeling a little bewildered as to why some stranger was sitting in his car. Things like this just didn't happen to him. They happened to other people. They happened on TV. They happened in the books Noah read. They didn't happen to him.
"I don't care, just drive."
Noah blinked again before turning to put the car into drive. He started to leave the parking spot he was in when he noticed the man wasn't wearing his seatbelt. Noah pressed on the brake and turned back to the man.
"Could you put your seatbelt on please?"
The man looked shocked by Noah's words, his dark eyebrows shooting up nearly to his hairline, and Noah didn't understand that. It seemed like a perfectly reasonable request to him. It was illegal to ride in car without a seatbelt. Everyone knew that. Besides, it was dangerous.
"Please put on your seatbelt."
"You're not serious."
"I wouldn't have said it if I wasn't serious," Noah explained carefully in case the man didn't understand his words. Maybe he didn't understand English? "It's illegal to ride in a vehicle without a seatbelt on. Its state law and I do not want a ticket."
The man gave Noah a peculiar look then reached back and grabbed his seatbelt, pulling it around his body and clicking it into place. "Happy?" he asked, one eyebrow cocked.
"Yes, thank you." Noah started driving again, checking the speedometer to insure he was driving the proper speed limit, then looked both ways to see if there was any oncoming traffic. "Where can I drive you, Mr… uh…"
"Tynan, Gage Tynan."
Noah nodded. "It's very nice to meet you, Mr. Tynan. My name is Noah Andrews."
"Uh, yeah, it's nice to meet you too but call me Gage."
Noah glanced over at the man, curious as to why he seemed so puzzled by being introduced. It was polite to introduce yourself when you met someone for the first time. Noah's mother taught him that.
"Where can I take you, Gage?"
"Can you drive any faster?"
"Of course not," Noah said, shaking his head. He wanted to laugh at the silly man but even he knew that wouldn't have been polite. "The speed limit is only 35 here. It is a business district, after all."
"Are you daft?"
"Daft?" Noah glanced over just in time to see Gage roll his eyes. Noah's eyebrows drew together as he frowned, looking back out the front window. He got the distinct feeling that Gage was making fun of him. He got that feeling a lot.
Maybe that was one of the reasons he didn't like being around a lot of people. They always seemed to think he was odd or weird, or whatever else they wanted to call him. Noah didn't fit in. "I am not daft, Mr. Tynan," Noah said after taking a deep controlled breath. It wouldn't do to let Gage know how much his words rankled."I would be happy to take you wherever you want to go but you need to give me a destination."
Gage sighed deeply. "Just drop me off a few blocks from here."
There was a small part of Noah that was disappointed but he understood. Most people didn't want to stick around him after spending any amount of time in his company. Noah was used to it.
Still, there was something compelling about the strange man that drew Noah to him. Maybe that alone was reason enough for Noah to drop Gage off at the first opportunity. He didn't need to get involved with anyone.
Noah hummed softly to himself as he drove a few blocks then pulled over into a small minimart marking lot and put the car into park. He rested his hands on the steering wheel as he turned to look at Gage.
"Will this do, Mr. Tynan?"
Gage looked around then nodded as he reached for the door handle. "Yeah, this will do fine. Thanks for the lift."
"You're very welcome." Noah barely got the words out before Gage was out of the car, slamming the door behind him. Noah watched Gage walk away. He felt a well of disappointment again as Gage disappeared into the night.
It took all of his well honed control not to call Gage back and offer to take the man wherever he wanted to go, and maybe offer to go with him. Noah was lonely and Gage was the first person in a long time that he felt drawn to.
Noah just knew the futility of wanting something he couldn't have. It was better if he just went home and forgot all about Gage Tynan. Nothing good could come of their association. Experience taught Noah that.
"Please," Noah begged, which just added to the delight Gage took in the man's body. Not only did he like small delicate men, he liked small delicate submissive men. This time it was Gage who shuddered.
"I don't suppose you have any lube, do you?" Gage asked as he tilted his head back to look down into Noah's face.
"Lube, slick, something to make things easier on you when I fuck you?"
When Noah just stared up at him, looking confused and dazed, Gage decided to take things into his own hands, so to speak. He looked around the shower until his eyes settled on a bottle of body wash. He popped the lid and poured some on his fingers before putting the bottle back on the little shelf.
Reaching down behind Noah, Gage pushed his lubed fingers back between the man's ass cheeks. A soft gasp fell from Noah's lips when Gage pressed his finger against the man's tight hole. Gage grinned and stroked the small bit of puckered flesh for several moments before he felt it loosen up enough to push one finger inside.
Damn, he liked them like this. Noah was tight, eager, and begging to be filled. And Gage was just the man to do it. He thrust his finger into Noah's ass then slowly pulled it out before thrusting it in again.
Noah fairly came apart in his arms when he added a second finger. The man's body trembled. Small moans fell from his lips. His skin was flushed with desire. Well, at least Gage hoped it was desire. If the hard cock leaking against his leg was anything to go by, Noah was in heaven.
"Do you like that, baby?"
Noah nodded vigorously.
"Do you want another one?" Gage asked as he thrust his two fingers in and out of Noah's ass. The man had a tight grip on Gage's fingers, almost as if he didn't want to let them go. Gage had a harder time pulling them out than he did pushing them in.
When Gage pressed a third finger into the group and thrust them into Noah's snug opening, Noah's entire body went taut. Noah cried out as hot liquid splashed against Gage's leg.
Gage looked down at Noah, shocked that the man had come from so little stimulation. Gage hadn't even touched Noah's cock. He guest he shouldn't be too surprised. Noah was a virgin. Didn't mean he wasn't going to fuck him, though.
Gage pulled his fingers from Noah's ass and grabbed for the bottle of lube again. He poured some more into the palm of his hand and set the bottle back on the shelf. Reaching between him and Noah, Gage rubbed the body wash over his cock until he was nice and slick.
"Legs around my waist, Noah," Gage said as he easily lifted the man up by his butt. Noah's legs immediately wrapped around his waist. Gage grunted as Noah's legs tightened around him in a vice grip. Despite all appearances to the contrary, Noah was a strong little twink.
Gage stepped forward and pushed Noah up against the shower stall wall. He lifted the man enough to wiggle his cock into place at the entrance to the man's tight ass then slowly lowered Noah's body down until he felt himself bottom out.
Looking at Noah, Gage wondered if the man was even breathing. His eyes were as big as saucers, his mouth hung open as small pants fell from his lips. Noah looked dazed but Gage could see no signs of pain in his face.
"Are you ready, baby?"
Noah nodded but he didn't stop panting. Gage didn't know if Noah even knew what was about to take place. He had no clue how much experience the man might have beyond being a virgin. But Noah was about to find out.
Gage pulled his hips back, feeling his cock slowly withdraw from the tight grip Noah's body had on him then thrust forward. Noah's eyes widened and his panting increased. Gage could feel the man's cock start to harden again as it pressed between them.
Hooking his arms under Noah's legs, he let the man slide down the wall just a bit then started pounding into him with no warning. Noah's hand dug into Gage's shoulders. Gage knew he'd have fingernail marks in the morning. He didn't care. The hot silk enveloping his cock every time he moved seemed so much more important right at the moment.
Noah's body seemed to meet Gage's every thrust almost as if it welcomed him in. The harder he thrust, the deeper he could go and the tighter the grip around his cock. Gage couldn't remember ever feeling anything like it.
Soft mewling noises started coming from Noah. The sound, unlike a moan or groan that Gage would have expected, seemed to spur him on. Every time Noah mewled, Gage felt the need to be deep inside the man, as if he would miss something if he wasn't.
Gage gripped Noah's hips and held them stationary as he thrust harder, pounding his cock into Noah's virgin hole. His whole world narrowed down to the body pressed between him and the wall.
He didn't even protest when Noah leaned forward and started licking his neck, even if Noah's tongue felt kind of rough, like sandpaper, even if the man nipped at him. Each caress just seemed to arouse Gage more.
"Fuck, Noah, you were made for sex," Gage groaned as he felt his cock start to swell. His balls were rock hard against his body and he knew he was only seconds away from spilling his load.
Despite every rule he'd ever been taught about leaving no evidence behind while on a mission, Gage couldn't prevent himself from turning his head and biting into the soft skin of Noah's neck as his orgasm exploded over him.
He thrust once, twice, then three times, the last time shoving his cock as far into Noah's ass as he could go. A long shudder shook Gage's body as he felt the head of his cock throb and expand, seed spurting from him to fill Noah.
He distantly heard Noah cry out and the space between them filled with hot liquid. Noah's inner muscles gripped Gage's cock in a vice grip, dragging his orgasm out for so long that Gage tasted blood in his mouth before he realized he had broken the man's skin with his enthusiasm.
Gage panted heavily as his orgasm slowly started to subside. He closed his eyes and leaned his head against the shower wall behind Noah's head, wondering how in the world he was going to kill a man that just gave him the best fuck of his life.
