Dare Me Once
Dirty Rotten Vampires 4
Have you met Vald Gerlach?
Dared once, it’s game on—let’s play.
Vald Gerlach is the oldest vampire alive and the power encompassed in his body can only exist in one monster at a time. Today, he’s that monster.
With thousands of years to devise ways to make a creature beg, Vald will test some on Drecara, whose hot, curvaceous body he desires. And because he must, he plans to experience the charms of Mictain, her protector, just to feel his burn.
The game’s on, and Vald hopes the extraordinary demons are up for the challenge.

Vald witnessed wonder blaze in Vigier’s violet eyes, followed shortly with red swirls of anger. “Why is a volcano threatening southern California?”
“It will be my new home for a short time.”
“You can’t be serious!”
Vigier happened to be the vampire Vald had chosen to share his powers with because the man was damn near as pious as the godly creature standing before them. Vampire, yes, but full of compassion paired with constant worry about right and wrong, Vig would provide the necessary balance in the world between vampires and demons springing from hell. He was also eternally mated to Kiwi, his youngest granddaughter, a demon and vampire mix sired by Vald’s oldest son. If what he wanted reached fruition, Vald had to see to it that Vigier received even more powers than he currently held to protect his kind.
“I’m serious.” He smiled at Vig. “My new demon friends will feel right at home.”
“Vald, have you lost your mind? They will use this to gain a stronger toehold.”
“Shit, they’ll be so busy with me they won’t even remember vampires exist.”
Vald observed Adam pick an apple and bite into it. Such innocence. “I was the first satanic creature placed here in the form of a serpent.”
Vig’s eyebrow lifted, his lip curled into a sneer. “You’re responsible for the hell we live in on Earth?”
“I’m responsible for you being what you are.”
“You dirty, rotten…”
“Vampire?” Vald chuckled. “What are you? Never mind, Eve was going to find this fucking tree eventually. I helped her do it sooner.” He shrugged. “God allowed it, and as for Lilith, she already held lust in her heart.”
“You are evil personified.”
“Hmm, maybe, but heavenly blood coursing through his veins will soon be racing through yours.”
“You’ve already had a bit through Kiwi.” Vald tugged Adam in front of him, facing Vigier.
“Do you wish to protect Kiwi and your people?”
“Not like this.”
“You have another plan?” Vigier raised his hand. “Do you really want to come against me?” Crooking one finger, Vald drew Vig closer and closer. “Think of it as a precious gift from God.”
Vigier stopped only when he and Adam’s toes bumped. “Drink.” Vald rubbed fingers together and used the appearing talon to penetrate the beautiful man’s heart. “He won’t mind.” He used his mental path to coerce Vig.
Vigier’s head soon fell forward, unable to resist the delicious aroma of blood infused with heaven’s scent. Having his fill, he straightened and stared at Vald. “Why?”
“Do you really want to know?”
“Yes.” Vig licked his lips clean of every trace of Adam’s life force.
“Because I want to fuck the devil’s favorite demon.” Vald felt fire and lust swirl in his cold heart just thinking about it. He allowed Vig a brief glimpse of what he had done to Adam. “Each is so very different.”
Vigier narrowed his violet eyes. “You truly do not fear their masters?”
Vald threw his head back and laughed with glee. “I am their best collaboration.
