Blood Ties "A Claimed Story" by Cathryn Fox (originally published 11-01-08 in e-book format)
Her survival depends on the man—and the erotic sex—of her dreams.

Dari Blake has spent her life sheltered from the world, believing she has a rare, genetic blood disorder that prevents her from aging. Her overprotective guardians are her only company, except for the mysterious man who enters her nightmares, soothing them into erotic dreams. Only he seems to have the power to help her shut out the cacophony of voices in her head.

Alone in his English castle, Mikel Sare has one mission in life: to protect Dari, his soul mate. Unbeknownst to her, she isn't suffering from a rare disorder, she is a rare creature herself. She, like Mikel, is a Nallie. Part human, part vampire, one of only two left in the world. Her womb, and her psychic ability, are more powerful—and more dangerous—than she could ever imagine.

Now the alien vampires who created their kind are back, killing everyone in their path as they seek to take control of her child-bearing body. To defeat them, Mikel and Dari must join together—mind, body, blood and soul—in a ritual that will exponentially increase their power.

Future Found "A Claimed Story" by Mima (originally published 11-01-08 in e-book format)
Tending the Spirit has never been so sexy.

As a tree singer, it is Shay-non's duty—and pleasure—to tend the chi of the few remaining trees left after the Cataclysm. Even if it means enduring the life-sucking presence of the greedy cybernetic elites who own them.

But the moment she steps into Elite Sandor's compound, he throws her world into disarray. Instantly, she finds herself tricked into twenty-four hours as his sexual "guest", an infuriating prospect. Then he lets her see, but not touch, the magnificent oak in his possession. An oak that shouldn't exist. For one moment with the tree, she'll do anything—even submit to Sandor's attentions.

Sand has waited years for Shay's unmet sexual needs to weaken her defenses enough to make his move. The time is ripe to begin a spiritual revolution, plus convince the lovely singer he has always loved her from afar—all in one day's time. A daunting task, especially since her earthy sexuality has him making all sorts of deviations from his plan.

Now that he has her captive, he can only pray. That she'll agree to help him defy the Council and raise an illegal forest temple.

And that she'll see past his sensual blackmail into his heart.
