My Sexy Saturday - Pure

My Sexy Saturday

Happy Saturday and welcome to My Sexy Saturday! For this hop you post 7 paragraphs or 7 sentences or 7 words. It can be from a WIP or something published.
For this week, I thought I’d do something from my Dreamspinner release, Pure. It’s book three in The Gods series.

Zygi Wyatt is an intimidating dom, but he yearns for love just like the next man. However, finding a partner who isn’t scared of his size is no easy task. The easygoing Mo seems like the answer to his prayers.
Love is the stuff of dreams. Ask the god Morpheus—he knows all about it. Mo wants Zygi in a forever kind of way, but he has to be sure of Zygi’s love before he claims him for his mate and reveals his true self.
Unfortunately, Zeus is growing increasingly unhappy with Morpheus, and Ares is determined to throw a monkey wrench into everything. Zygi and Mo will have to brave the wrath of the gods to make their dreams come true.

“Maybe we all have a bit of that green-eyed monster in us. I never approached Morpheus because I knew I wasn’t what he needed. He’s right, you know. I would have played with him for a while, then moved on. He wants a mate—you. He chose you, and yes, it pissed me off. He chose a human over me, the god of all gods. What a blow to my pride. You’d know about blows to the pride, wouldn’t you, Zygi?”
“Look, if you came here…. Wait a minute. You were listening to what Cam and I talked about, weren’t you?”
“Yes, I was. It’s why I’m here. Mo has a cave at Mt. Olympus. He dreams there, on a bed covered in dark silken sheets surrounded by poppy flowers. Not a good place, Zygi. He goes there when he retreats from the world. He sleeps nearly all the time.”
Zygi felt the blood drain out of his face. “Tell me he’s protected. Everyone has hinted about Ares and his fixation on Mo, so tell me he wasn’t left without protection.”
“No one but Cam or I can enter. And now you. I want you to claim Morpheus and mate with him. As much as I would have enjoyed having Morpheus as a plaything, I want him happy more. You are the right one for him.” Zeus brushed his hair over his shoulder. “That isn’t easy for me to admit.”
“Well, I have to say, I’m shocked. It takes a big man to admit he fucked up. Thank you. I’ll do my best to convince him that I’m an ass, but I’m an ass who loves him.”

“I believe you do. I also have something for you. So, here.” Zeus handed a pair of cuffs to Zygi.
