Happy Hump Day!
I've got another teaser from Runner and we're continuing from where we left off in last week's Mid Week Tease.
Runner is published in the Dark Captive: Manlove Edition Anthology.
The story is written from Ash's POV. Enjoy ❤
His actions were without timidity or uneasiness, his motion decisive and dominant, seeking no permission.
“I'm all right.” Coming to my senses, I took the bottle off him and stepped away. How could I permit him to touch me like this? Like he had a right to. Like I belonged to him.
Rob, one of my neighbors slowed his jogging and marked time on a spot beside us.
“Ash, are you all right?” he asked, staring at me and then at the stranger.
“Yes, Rob. I’m okay,” I replied after drawing in a shaky breath. I glanced at the man in black and said. “I have to go.”
His expression remained inscrutable, but he nodded as if giving me permission to leave. A part of me felt as if he could’ve detained me. This had to be a ridiculous notion as the park lay busy with people and Rob still stood waiting.
Shaking my head to dispel the fuzzy sensation, I jogged off in the direction of home. My hands trembled, and my heart pounded. But that could’ve been just the rush of going home to grab a shower.

Story Title: Runner
Author: Kai Tyler
When my brother calls me out of the blue one day, I know trouble won’t be far behind. But I never expected to be abducted and to become the property of a cartel boss.
Sergei Petrichenko is a man who scares me as much as he fascinates me. A man whose tender touches make me burn as much as his dark soul threatens to consume me. A ruthless man no one would dare to cross.
My name is Ash Brady, and I have to dare. I’ve trained most of my life to run and when the time comes I’m going to run like hell.
