Paradise Bound by Deanna Wadsworth Blog Tour

Blog Tour. Deanna Wadsworth’s Paradise Bound.

Sailing aboard the Pride of the Caribbean for yet another wedding, still-single tattoo artist Marcus Rodriguez is determined to enjoy himself, his friends, and spend some overdue time sketching and drawing for himself, rather than creating awesome flash for his clients. He certainly isn’t going to spend all his spare time searching for an elusive man named Dane who he can’t seem to get out of his mind.

Dane has had a rough life since the fall of the Royal Fae Court, but at least he’s finally free from the clutches of his evil captors. He’s living with his king and other paras aboard a magical sanctuary ship in the Caribbean. But just when this fairy thinks he could finally be safe and happy, the Goddess drops another bombshell.

The missing piece of his soul and the key to fixing his broken magic is human.

The Pride might be paradise bound, but there won’t be any smooth sailing on this cruise! Between conniving gargoyles, mysterious drawings, missing paras, and evil warlocks, if Marcus and Dane don’t work hard to make their bond one of love, they’ll be bound in a relationship they can’t escape.

They arrived at the cabin, but as much as he wanted to jump on his mate’s cock and ride it like he stole it, as the saying went, he didn’t want Marcus to mistake his passion for incubus magic again, though the lingering effect had left Dane more than a little hot to trot.

Then again, maybe the gorgeous hunk standing next to him caused it all.

Either way, he intended to be honest, always.

“When the incu—Nathan kissed his... Josh, you should know it had a small effect on me,” Dane said casually. “No doubt on the M—Theron as well.”

He needed to remember to use their names.

Marcus gave him the side eye as he withdrew his keycard from his wallet. “What kind of effect?”

Dane shrugged. “Like a small aphrodisiac, or a shot of tequila to some. Like cacao or oysters.”

“Why are you telling me this?”

As Marcus used the keycard to open the door, Dane explained, “Because I intended to make love to you tonight, but since it happened, I thought you deserved to know. Do you still wish to make love?”

Just as Dane asked, two women walked by dressed as Wilma and Betty from The Flintstones for the Howl at the Moon party. The caveman/sasquatch/werewolf theme allowed shifters to let their fur down while a shifter rock band provided live entertainment. The women had obviously overheard Dane because they giggled.

Cheeks warming, Marcus looked at the retreating women then smiled at Dane and hesitated, the door half open. “But you wanted me before that... right?”

He hated how he’d caused doubts for his mate. Wanting to reassure him, he placed a hand on his chest. “I cannot lie to you, heart of mine. I always want you. I want to make love.” That was something Dane had never done before. “The passing whiff of incubi pheromones just made the want more... urgent, if you will. I’ve been half-hard ever since and with our bed so close, the urgency has only increased.”

Dane ran both hands over Marcus’s chest, the soft white linen of their funeral attire scratching his palms as he deliberately teased his mate’s sensitive nipples. “I will not lie to you, Marcus. I cannot. Being in Nathan’s presence always runs the risk of affecting me. If he feels or senses desire, his demon side responds, and therefore I will feel it, sometimes even when he has a shield up, like tonight. But know this, it is you that I want. It has only been you since I first laid eyes on you. Only you, Marcus. Do you understand?”

“I do.” And his entire body seemed to uncoil, right before Dane’s eyes.

“Now let us retire to our cabin, darling.”

“Where you’ll make love to me?”

“I will.”

As he slipped into the cabin, Marcus smiled so wide his eyes creased and almost disappeared.

But something he’d said dawned on Dane. “I enjoy bottoming and I know you let me take you our first time, but is it something you enjoy?”

Chewing his lower lip, Marcus nodded, then he hastily pulled Dane all the way into the cabin and shut the door before anyone else could walk by and overhear their intimate conversation. A small desk lamp provided the only light besides the stars and moon in the porthole window, but Dane could see the sudden fire in Marcus’s dark gaze.

“Yeah, I do like bottoming,” Marcus whispered, as if they weren’t alone. “But I had a question first.”

“What’s that?” Dane queried, toeing off his shoes and kicking them out of the way.

“Can you...?” Marcus hesitated, cheeks darkening. “In your... true form. Can you, I mean, do you have... um, you know?”

Dane grinned. “Is everything in proper working order in my true form?”

Gaze hungry, Marcus chewed his lower lip again, nodding.

“I assure you everything works, though it is much larger. Why? Would you like me to fuck you while I am in my true form?”

The lip chewing intensified along with his mate’s hungry blush. “I’ve um, never...”

“Never what?” Feeling predatory, he stepped closer to his mate. The man’s erection, like his own, made a rather obvious display in the linen pants. “Speak freely. There can be no embarrassment or any more secrets between us.”

Marcus swallowed hard and released his lip, now swollen and red. “I’m a big guy.”

“I know.” Dane ran his hand over said big chest again, slipping a hand beneath the hem of his white tunic to caress those warm muscles. Dane could practically feel Marcus’s submission like a heady drug, amping up his own arousal.

“I’ve always been the bigger guy when I have sex, and I usually top.”

Though Dane despised hearing about his previous sexual experiences, he listened intently, wanting to give his mate everything he’d ever wanted. “Go on.”

“I’ve bottomed enough to know I like that too. And I have a few toys.”

“I want to see you use them.” Dane effortlessly found one of his mate’s hot buttons—he intended to have them all memorized one day—and began to twist the bar piercing through his nipple.

Marcus shuddered. “Fuck yes,” he groaned, wrapping his arms around Dane and drawing his smaller body flush with his own. Dane pushed the linen all the way above his pecs and went to work on both nipples with his thumbs and fingers. Though he longed to suck on them until they were soaked and red, he kept his gaze on his mate’s face.

“What are you telling me, my sweet?” Dane whispered, trying on different endearments and liking every one more than the last.

“I’ve never been with a man big enough to... well?” He let out a breathless chuckle that ended on a whimper when Dane pinched both nipples and tugged on the piercings. Marcus’s hard cock pulsed hot against his stomach and Dane pinched again, harder.

“Tell me, my sweet.”

“I like that,” Marcus whispered.

Whether he meant the pet names or the rough play, Dane hoped it was both.

“I’ve never been smaller,” Marcus finally said. “I’d like to feel... safe and small.” His face reddened and scrunched up, gaze unsure. “Is that strange?”

The fear in his rich dark eyes made Dane run his hands up the rest of his broad chest until he cupped his face, craning his neck to make full eye contact. “Not at all. I love that you’re so much bigger than me, how you can wrap me up and hold me close. I’d love to make you feel that way. I want to please you, always.”

The words themselves were so honest, so pure Dane felt the magic in them. A vow of protection and care.

Of love.

Marcus grinned. “I also, um... don’t want you to take it easy. Manhandle me a little bit, okay?”

“Manhandle you, eh?” Dane grinned in return. “You’re about to get Faehandled.”



If something was meant to be, they would meet. If not, he’d have to find a way to move one.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the fourth book in the series. While I have enjoyed this series, I'm starting to lose interest for some reason and I honestly don't know why. I liked Marcus but I didn't really like Dane – he refused his mate, who does that? And he was kind of a jerk and hard to like. Dane finally gets his head out of his butt. They do figure things out after facing danger and all the twist and turns of their journey, and finally get their happily ever after.



“Dare, is that you? Where have you been?” Marcus’s soul must have been able to recognize him even in his true form, but Dane recognized two other things in that instant.
