Bobbie Rayne & Steph Marie have a new MM paranormal dragon rider book out, book three of the four-part Brotherhood of Ormarr series: Eeli.
I’ve been training my entire life for this; I need to be the best, the best fighter, the best dragon rider in the entire brotherhood. This is what I was born for. The only problem is that my bonded dragon, Bodhi, and I can’t seem to get it together. One minute I think we’re connecting properly, and the next she’s taking off, leading me to the one guy I don’t want to know: Slash. He’s basically the opposite of me in every way, and I don’t get why he’s suddenly everywhere I turn, but I can’t deny how he makes me feel when he looks at me.
Three years ago my sister and I had to come to a new town and started new schools without our parents’ unconditional love and support. My uncle’s an uncaring drunk, so I’m doing the best I can to keep us both clothed and fed with only an after school job. If I didn’t have her to live for, the loneliness would be excruciating. Now, with only a few months until graduation, I’ve suddenly made a friend because of my sister, and another guy keeps stumbling into me who I think needs help: Eeli. I don’t understand why no one else sees how oddly he’s behaving, but I can’t deny my attraction for him is growing with every mishap.
Eeli is the third book in The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. While each book focuses on a different couple, the overall story arc continues in the next instalment. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest reading in order. Eeli is a m/m NA romance, and is recommended for adults 18 years and older.

“Good morning,” he whispered.
“Morning.” I finally lifted my head to look at him, and he sent me the sweetest smile which set my nerves entirely at ease.
He lifted his hand and hesitated for a few seconds before very gently brushing my hair off my forehead. I closed my eyes at the soft touch and a smile perked up my lips of its own accord. He leaned in, knocking my nose with his, then pressed his lips against mine in a barely-there kiss that set off butterflies in my stomach. He pulled back way sooner than I wanted, so I opened my eyes to find him staring at me.
“Christian,” I whispered, and his eyes softened.
He kissed me again, harder this time, and I tasted his stale breath, but I didn’t even care because it was Christian, my mate, kissing me and making everything inside of me feel alive.
“Oomph,” we both gasped suddenly when Bo jumped on us.
“Bo!” I yelled, but then Christian laughed, and I laughed with him.
Bo scooted up in between us so her butt was on my shoulder but her head was nuzzling both our necks. Christian chuckled and pet her head and neck, saying, “She must’ve been feeling left out.”
I sighed. “She was. She gave us privacy last night, but now she wants all your attention.”
No. We can share.
Gee, thanks. I snorted.
“What?” Christian asked.
“Oh, she said we can share your attention.”
He chuckled. “That’s nice of her since I plan on stealing all your attention today anyway.” He shot me a smile that I returned as he continued petting Bo while she rubbed her cheeks and snout all over his face and neck.
“Sounds good to me. Do you have something in mind?”
He shook his head. “Not really, but maybe we could go flying again or something.”
“Sounds like a plan to me.”
He leaned over for a smiling kiss.
“We should probably get up and get seeing my brothers over with.”
He groaned. “They’re going to be relentless, aren’t they?”
I snorted, then peeled myself away from him even though I never wanted to move. We both took turns in the bathroom—I made sure to brush my teeth so I didn’t stink him out—and we headed out of the safety of my bedroom and upstairs toward the loud chatter coming from the dining room with Bo wrapped around Christian’s shoulders and his hand in mine.
As soon as we rounded the corner, Zale smiled that shit-eating grin and said, “Oh, there are the lovebirds! I didn’t think you’d make it out of the bedroom at all today.”
“Eww,” Kyla said as my brothers all laughed.
Zale looked around the table. “Who won the bet for making it to breakfast? I had them down for sneaking food in the afternoon.”
Malachite lifted his hand. “I had that one; I win.”
“Ha ha ha, you’re so hilarious, guys,” I said sarcastically with an eye roll all the while my cheeks flamed hot. One glance at Christian and I saw his face flaming, too. Fun.
Malachite stood and moved over a seat, pointing at the two chairs beside each other. “Here you go; wouldn’t wanna have to rip you apart so soon.” He smiled at me, so I punched him in the shoulder with my free hand. “Ow. What the hell, pipsqueak?”
“Stop embarrassing us on purpose.”
“I was being nice!” he said with a laugh.
Rolling my eyes again, I pulled Christian over to the two seats and reluctantly let go of his hand so I could grab plates and forks. Then I filled his plate up with pancakes, bacon, and eggs and set it in front of him.
“Thank you, Eeli.”
I sent him a smile before filling my own plate.
Zale grabbed a pancake as he sat across from me, still wearing that smile I wanted to smack off his face. “So, little bro, where’d you guys go last night? Did you have fun?” He waggled his eyebrows.
I picked up a slice of bacon and threw it at his face. He must not have been expecting it because it hit him right in the nose and everyone cracked up laughing.
When Zale picked up the bacon and cocked his arm back to throw it at me, Doc said, “Don’t you dare start a food fight. I’m not cleaning it up!”
Zale frowned and blew out a breath, setting the bacon down, but his smile turned a little evil as he leaned forward and mock-whispered, “You better watch yourself, Eeli. You’ll never see me coming.”
Davis barked out a laugh that made Zale elbow him, so I shrugged and said, “Whatever. I can take you.”
“Oh, it is on, little man. It. Is. On.”
I laughed and was relieved to see Christian laughing along with me.
I couldn’t help but lean over to kiss his lips. It was a small, chaste kiss, but we still got a bunch of whoops and whistles thrown at us that made us both laugh. I gave his smiling lips one more kiss before focusing on my food.
After we finished eating and clearing the table, I walked over to him, put my arms around his waist, and looked up at him. “I’m really, really glad I kidnapped you, Christian.”
Bobbie Rayne grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and still lives there today. She’s married to her very patient husband, and they have two amazing sons together, as well as two crazy dogs. She spends her time writing, driving her kids all over town, and helping run the PTA.

Her favorite things in life outside of her family are a huge cup of coffee, a blanket to snuggle under, and a delicious piece of cake–if you’re nice, she’ll even share.
