"Lovelorn" by Nicholas Bella (Episode 6 Demon Gate Series)
I’ve had one successful mission that I managed to complete by the skin of my… well, let’s just say that I wouldn’t have been able to do it without Raphael’s help. He’s become a huge part of my life now and after learning even more about myself and what my role is in our relationship, let’s just say that I think I’m adjusting rather well, considering the circumstances. On top of my personal issues—and I have plenty—the Society has tasked me with another mission. No rest for the wicked, and I do find that I’m enjoying my wickedness even more now that I’m a demon. Nonetheless, I’ve been assigned to a case where a demon is killing and feeding on a bunch of innocent people who seemed to just be a little down on their luck in the love department. Well, that just doesn’t sit well with me and I’m making it my business to bring this demon to my dinner table.

"The Manny," by Susan Ward
I never understood when people said someday you would love someone enough to want it all. All? I didn’t even know what they meant by “all.” I’d spent most of my life in the military in the Special Forces. My life worked for me. But the minute I saw him, it all changed.

I thought this kind of love was something I was incapable of feeling, but then Leland Jensen wasn't my usual type of hook-up. And I found myself drawn to him like a moth to the flame...
