When Chase Manning wakes up on the first morning of PrideFest, the last thing he expects to find is his lover and life partner, Rhys Sayer, on bended knee. But the news that marriage has been legalized in the state is a game changer for both of them.

After a mad dash to the courts, all they want is to find their friends at PrideFest to celebrate. However, what happens when they arrive will bond them together forever—if their friends don’t have a collective meltdown about their sudden disappearance first.


“Rhys? What’s got you so wound up?” Chase asked as he perched on the stool in the kitchen.

They’d eaten already, though Rhys’s appetite hadn’t been worth much. Chase’s cooking was, as always, wonderful, but the knot in Rhys’s stomach was about to kill him. How he’d let himself get into such a state was beyond him right then, but he didn’t want to worry Chase.

“Nothing, Cariadon. I’m just a little fried tonight is all.”

“Uh-huh. Nope, not buyin’ it, hon. Try again.”

Dammit, why did Chase always have to push when Rhys needed him to be oblivious? “I’m just worried about one of the projects I have going. That’s all.”

There, that sounded innocuous enough, right?

The sigh Chase let out said otherwise.

“Fine, don’t tell me. How about I help take your mind off things for a little, then we can get some sleep. Tomorrow is going to be busy and we’ll be out really late, and I don’t want to miss anything, so no staying up long for me.”

Oh, if Chase only knew. The rumors that the decision would come down the next day were all but verified, they were so prevalent. “How would you distract me?”

Chase flashed a heated smirk at Rhys. “By reminding you who you belong to and how much I love to love you.”

The purr in Chase’s voice had Rhys hard before the words were fully out. “Please.”

When Chase pulled his head down, Rhys smelled Chase’s cinnamon-scented breath as it ghosted across his face in faint puffs. He’d never had a thing for cinnamon until Chase. Along with the Antaeus that Chase always wore, it short-circuited his brain, as usual.

Chase slid one hand up Rhys’s neck to tangle with his shoulder length hair. He pulled sharply, eliciting a gasp from Rhys. “Your body is mine. Your pleasure is mine. You are mine.”

The dominance and strength Chase always showed at times like this had Rhys’s cock diamond-hard and throbbing where it sat trapped in his jeans. “Yours, baby. Always yours,” he managed to grind out. Even after all this time, he couldn’t get enough of Chase.

Chase touched his lips against Rhys’s, but the hold he had on Rhys’s hair kept him from moving into the touch. “I want to hear your noises, Rhys,” Chase murmured against his lips.

A whimper was all Rhys managed in response aloud, though inside he screamed please and yes over and over.

Chase took Rhys’s mouth hard and fast, demanding his submission, starting from his lips and tongue and traveling down his jaw and neck, nipping and licking the skin there, before returning to Rhys’s kiss swollen lips. They licked and nibbled, tangled and tasted, Rhys moaning nonstop. Chase released his lips only to grab Rhys and spin him around before shoving him toward their bedroom. Rhys didn’t waste a moment or thought; he simply bolted for their room.
