Heat Race

an M/M/M/M Reverse Harem Story

Book Cover: Heat Race

It’s been two hundred years since alphas could knot and omegas could get pregnant, since anyone has shifted. Today’s hybrids are more human than wolf, but there’s one tradition they’ve retained from their animal ancestry: the heat race. With omegas in short supply, the annual heat race is every alpha’s chance to catch and claim an omega.

Jack Henry stands at the starting line, undecided. He could conspire to be caught by his best friend and childhood sweetheart, Elias, but would Elias be alpha enough for him? Maybe he’d prefer to be claimed by Saul, the huge and handsome alpha he’s always had a crush on. Then Jasper shows up—a stranger dressed in leather who emits such strong alpha vibes Jack Henry is ready to give himself up before the race even begins. But Jasper’s an unknown entity, whose confidence might be indicative of a desire to control.

Jack Henry can’t decide, and so he runs, turning his fate over to fate itself as he’s pursued by all three of his suitors plus the one alpha he can’t abide—Lon, a violent and regressive man who won’t take no for an answer. Jack Henry is going to need more than one alpha to keep him safe. And to keep him satisfied.

During a long night of danger and triumph, the Treehouse Pack is formed. But beyond the heat race lies an uncertain future. Jack Henry, Elias, Saul, and Jasper might each face their own insecurities, fight their own fights, and find their place in the pack as they navigate uncharted waters together. Because it turns out that legendary abilities like knotting, shifting, and child bearing might be more than just relics of the past.

Heat Race is a full-length M/M/M/M reverse harem omegaverse story, separate from the Omega Reimagined world.

Excerpt:

“You really do have to make a choice,” Saul told Jack Henry as he got the rest of the way undressed. It felt good to be naked. The clothes had become too much—a civilized veneer covering something that was no longer civil. “If you don’t speak up, one of us is going to go too far. And I don’t want it to be me.”

“Me either,” Elias said. “I want to respect your right to choose, but it needs to be soon.”

Jasper rose to his feet so the three of them surrounded the omega. Jack Henry turned in the center of the triangle they made, surveying them. He looked pleased, neither scared or uncertain, the only one of them still dressed but as lost to the call of the moon as any of them.

“Make a choice,” Saul begged him. “Because this is getting…” Difficult, tense, uncomfortable. Hard. So hard. Saul massaged his cock, unable to resist its insistence any longer.

Jack Henry kept rotating. Every time he faced Saul, Saul felt the heat of his eyes. Jack Henry wanted him, had always wanted him. Saul knew it, but Jack Henry didn’t say it. What he said instead was, “I don’t wanna.”

“Don’t wanna fuck?” Jasper asked doubtfully, his voice laced with humor.

“Don’t wanna choose. I like you all.”

“But who do you like best?” Elias insisted.

Jack Henry shook his head, still revolving slowly, his eyes and teeth gleaming. “There is no best. I couldn’t decide before the race, and I can’t decide now. Jasper’s my bad boy, so ruthless and feral. Saul’s my dreamboat, big but kind. And Elias is my best friend, the one I turn to, the one I tell my dreams to. I want it all. I want all of you.”

“Then what are we going to do?” Saul asked helplessly. If the only answer was to fight, he had the strength for it, but the three of them had banded together to protect Jack Henry. It seemed a shame to turn their cooperation into a competition—a bloody and perhaps lethal one. But if Jack Henry couldn’t choose for himself, how were they supposed to choose for him?

I LOVED this book. From the very start. It was perfect. And the ending was so sweet too, ahhh! P-E-R-F-E-C-T!

Becky on Momma Says To Read Or Not To Read wrote:

Each character brings something different to the relationship as well as each having their own issues as they adjust to the arrangement. I really hadn't thought about this trope set in omegaverse, but Tanya Chris makes it work, and it's thoroughly entertaining. The characters are lovable, the romance is sexy, and the story is fast-paced and engaging. All in all, another great omegaverse read by this author.

Jean on Amazon wrote:

Oh my goodness! This is such a good book! 💗💗 Once again, Tanya has outdone herself with this book. Her unique take on mpreg and omegaverse has to be the absolute best shifter story I have ever read. This book captured me and enraptured me from the very first line to the last.

Jay on Joyfully Jay wrote:

Overall, I found this a fun omegaverse story with some unique world building. Tanya Chris does a nice job creating four interesting and distinct characters and taking their story beyond the initial rush of mating to some thing more developed. I enjoyed this a lot and can definitely recommend it to omegaverse fans.


Omega Reimagined volume 2

Omegas… reimagined

Owen’s dreams are crushed when Prince Devin, the alpha he gave his virginity and—he thought—his life to, severs their betrothal and sends him back to the Western Pack where he was born.

Donovan isn’t an omega. He’s an alpha—a big, competent, ferocious one. So why does he have an irresistible and shameful urge to submit to another alpha in the most painful and degrading ways possible?

Daisy has come to North Leland to pursue his calling as a sex worker. He’s a feisty, independent, and intentionally delectable piece of omega eye candy. The last thing he needs is an interfering sheriff.

North Leland’s fight for equality and against Prince Devin comes to a satisfy end in Omega Reimagined volume 2.

Omega Returned: Best friends Alpha Fortis and Beta Keesh have been charged with getting Owen safely back home, but as they travel through the woods together, the lust they feel for each other and for Owen ignites, forcing them to figure out which two of them belong together and who ends up alone.

Omega Replaced: Alpha Tarek isn’t ashamed of his taste for dominating other alphas. Now if only he and the rest of North Leland could teach the strong, stubborn, and submissive Alpha Donovan that it’s okay for him to be who he is.

Omega Redeemed: Sheriff Quoitrel is only trying to do his job, which is to enforce North Leland’s anti-prostitution laws. Why does Daisy have to be the most tempting morsel he’s ever tasted? And why does watching Daisy service other men make his own desires skyrocket?

Volume 2 of Omega Reimagined includes Omega Returned, Omega Replaced, and Omega Redeemed, all of which have been published separately. This is a non-MPREG universe.

All three stories in this volume are original, amazing omegaverse romances. They have everything I love in the genre: well-rounded main characters, a strong attraction between the potential mates, an important enough conflict to make things difficult for them, intriguing secondary characters, and good storylines. I especially liked the world-building and thought it was fascinating how the author played around with stereotypes and societal conventions based on gender and sexual orientation.

Susie on Amazon wrote:

I read and reviewed the first collected volume quite some time ago, but I was amazed when this second volume came out how much I remembered about that earlier volume. Tanya Chris has a way of writing about the alpha/omega/beta shifter world that doesn't just give you great characters but puts them in a complicated world where they are called upon repeatedly to make ethical decisions that are never black and white. The villains in the stories range from those who are completely evil to those who have not had the courage to challenge the status quo and have been morally compromised by this failure. There are always heros, however, who are willing to stand up and fight for their own rights and relationships and to change the system for the benefit of others. These stories will linger in your memory and make you think about the choices you would make in these stories.

Alias1 on Amazon wrote:

I so love this series. These three books complete the series, and the struggle against Devin and his followers to ensure Omega rights comes to a conclusion. I loved the various alpha and omega characters and the way the author wrote them with twists that ran contrary to usual stereotypes. I loved the way they were true to themselves, or learned to be, and ended happy and content with their lives. The final conclusion with Devin was very satisfactory, although I felt sad for Marta and the position she was in. She was a strong leader to the end.


Omega Returned

When Owen’s dreams of being claimed by a prince go wrong, he doesn’t know what he’ll do. Being returned to the Western Pack is shameful enough. Just wait until his father hears what he let the prince do to him.

Fortis is happy to escort Owen home because it means spending time in the woods with his beta buddy, Keesh. Keesh will help keep his urges in check with respect to the omega, but who’s going to rein in what Fortis feels for his friend? His inner alpha wants an omega, but his everything else wants Keesh.

Owen is adorable and Fortis is hot, but Keesh can never have either one of them. He’s not the omega Fortis dreams of, and he doesn’t have the knot Owen craves. It might be time to give up on these unrequited crushes and crawl home to the Central Pack.

Wolves run on instincts, and the closer Owen, Fortis, and Keesh get to Western Pack territory, the louder theirs insist they’re heading the wrong way. Will their human minds catch up to what their wolfy hearts already know before Owen gets returned?

Omega Returned is an M/M/M novella in the Omega Reimagined series. It can be read as part of the series or as a standalone. Omega Reimagined is a non-MPREG omegaverse.

Excerpt:

Prince Angel introduced him to the wolves who were going to be his companions for the next three weeks. The alpha was named Fortis. He nodded in response to Owen’s timid greeting, holding himself aloof with his arms crossed in front of him. The beta’s name was Keesh, and the warmth of his smile made up for the menacing air the patch gave him.

“Excited?” Keesh asked.

“Excited?” Owen repeated. He’d been excited on the way out. Not now.

“Yeah, excited. We’re going to have fun. Rabbits, campfires, fresh air. I made Fortis bring marshmallows.” Keesh nudged the alpha, who gave a little growl in response. Owen didn’t know what marshmallows were, but they seemed to make Fortis angry. Maybe they were heavy.

“I could carry them,” he offered. He was dependent on this alpha for the next three thousand miles and wanted to keep him happy, but Keesh laughed.

“I think Fortis can manage. That pack’s not too big for you?”

“It’s fine.” When he hitched it up higher on his shoulders, Keesh came around behind him and fiddled with the straps until it sat more firmly over his hip bones.

Betas were so nice. Maybe when Owen got back to Pertha, his father could find him a beta to mate with. A beta might not mind that he’d foolishly squandered the only thing that made him worth having.

Omega Returned is the fourth book in Tanya Chris’ Omega Reimagined series, an engaging, non-mpreg, omegaverse series. One of the hallmarks of this series for me is the interesting way Chris explores different “caste” dynamics and relationship structures.

Becca on Love Bytes Reviews wrote:

The only thing missing in this series, is I’m waiting for a certain alpha to get what’s coming to him. You’ll see when you read. Pompous punk. But this book is my favorite because it’s just so special between the three of them.

Well written, sweet and sexy, some drama and angst – but not much, a little adventure, some pheromones, and a dash of longing. Loved it!


Three Times As Good

Cover for Three Times As Good shows three identical young men

Jared may only be older than his brothers by a few minutes, but he’s always been the leader, the one to make sure Jim and Johnny get everything they need. That’s why it’s so hard to say no when Johnny asks Jared to initiate him into the pleasures of the flesh. But giving in would be wrong, wouldn’t it?

Of course Jim thinks he should help Johnny out. Jim can never deny his baby brother anything. The three of them have always been there for each other, and Jared can’t seem to explain why this should be any different.

Johnny needs what he needs. Jim wants to see him get it. And since Jared can’t bear the thought of random strangers fulfilling either of their dirty fantasies, it looks like he’ll have to do the job himself. Can he teach his brothers to be good little bottoms without revealing the lust he’s been hiding in his heart?

Excerpt:

Jared woke up at the bottom of the puppy pile. As the oldest—by one whole minute—he was accustomed to being the rock his brothers leaned on, but right at the moment he had a serious piss hard-on that needed addressing.

Jim rolled off when Jared pressed on his shoulder, but Johnny, as usual, was harder to pry loose. Johnny was the youngest by a whopping fifteen minutes and they always joked that his late arrival was because he hadn’t wanted to get out of bed even then.

“Off,” Jared mumbled at the tousled head. The morning shadow of Johnny’s beard against his neck had his nerve endings firing. “I need to get up.”

“I can tell.” The grin in Johnny’s voice suggested he was more awake than he’d been pretending. He shifted his leg so his thigh rubbed over Jared’s throbbing cock, then, apparently not satisfied with hinting at what he meant, he reached down and grabbed it through the flannel pajama bottoms. “Got a little problem?”

“Johnny.”

“Come on, baby.” Jim, always the peacemaker, rolled Johnny off Jared’s body to tuck him into his own side. “You know it makes Jared uncomfortable when you get handsy.”

It was true, though probably not for the reason Jim imagined. The three of them were practically one body, the boundaries between them always a little hazy, but in the six months since they’d turned eighteen and moved away from home, Jared had started to become aware of certain non-brotherly feelings he knew he couldn’t act on.

It was impossible when sharing such a small apartment to not be there for every intimate moment of each other’s lives, but lately it wasn’t just a matter of Johnny and Jim being nearby when Jared pleasured himself. It was that he wished they were even closer.

TM Chris' erotica is so hot and so well written, she's always a one-click author for me. However, her new triplecest tale is so far beyond hot I find it difficult to find words to describe it! The triplets are 18 and of age, but Ms. Chris does an amazing job of juxtaposing innocent childhood memories with erotic activities to heighten the heat level. It's a story of the three brothers living together in a small apartment in New York and sharing a bed while one of them is trying to fight his desire for the other two. But what about what the other two want? So good!

Anne Shure on Smashwords wrote:

This was delicious! And some of Jared’s thoughts were hilarious, so there was humor, too. But more sweetness and tenderness than you might expect. (Of course, if you’ve read this author’s other works, you know that it’s never just about the sex.) While it’s a fairly short read, heavy on the erotica, it still had enough of a plot to be fully engaging. I know I’ll re-read it at least once, so it was definitely worth buying. I only wish there could be a sequel, maybe from Johnny’s or Jim’s point of view...how about a triplecest trilogy, so each guy gets a book? That’s only fair....

Denise on Smashwords wrote:

This is what I wanted. It had all the things I was looking for. I like how it was told through Jared’s point of view and we got all his thoughts every step of the way. Satisfied my need for the mix of emotions and kinky sexiness I could ask for. I love everything I’ve read by this author.

Jared, Jim, and Johnny form an acrobatic stack of brotherly love as they get up to some triplecestuous shenanigans in a recliner.

 

You, Me & Her

Cover for You, Me & her features a man superimposed over a theater stage
Part of the My Guys series:

Nate wasn’t made to be monogamous, a fact he never fails to disclose to his partners. No matter how much he loves the women he’s with, he sees potential in others. Does that make him a horrible person? His on-again, off-again lover and current co-star, Deb, certainly thinks so.
But his other co-star, Joshua, understands. Joshua, who’s fast becoming the best friend Nate ever had, doesn’t even mind when Nate hooks up with his wife, Sherry. Well, he does mind a little, but only because he has the hots for Nate himself.

Nate’s always known he’s polyamorous, but is he also bi? He loves being with Joshua. He loves being with Sherry. He definitely loves being with Joshua and Sherry together. Can he make the transition from loves-being-with to just-plain-loves? And even if he can, how does he fit into another couple’s relationship?

Meanwhile, the situation with Deb is growing ever more toxic, the future of their show is at stake, and not all of Nate’s friends are on board with the whole poly/bi thing. It’s a minefield Nate can only navigate with the help of one very special man.

Excerpt:

Having collided, we couldn’t unpart so easily. We stood together in the downspot of light that guarded the theater entrance from wandering vagrants and exchanged soothing banalities. It was a gentle wrapping up of a harsh evening and I was in no hurry to end it, despite the dragging pull of weariness and the unavoidably early dawn that waited for me.

The yellow light brought out every shade of brown in Joshua’s eyes and I found myself voicing something I’d only thought before: “It should be your name that’s Sherry.”

He tilted his head, perplexed, a smile nonetheless coming to his lips, a smile that simply said, Whatever you’re going on about, I want to hear it.

“Your eyes have this depth to them, all these swirls of amber and mahogany. It’s like looking into the bottom of a glass before you drink from it.”

I stroked a hand across his cheek. Intoxicating, that was what I meant. His eyes were as heady as strong liquor. They drew me in where I might, clear-headed, never go.

“Nate?” Joshua stepped into me. His hand reached for my hip.

I bent my elbow, persuading his face closer, and tilted my head that fraction upwards that was necessary to compensate for his height. This was it then. Kiss the man. I wanted to, I wanted to, but those last few inches were so hard to cross.

The door to the theater flew open at my back and Pete, Repeat and Mikaela spilled out of it onto the sidewalk, too loud and occupying too much space. I dropped my hand, stepping backwards into Repeat who pushed against me, sending me forwards into Joshua again. Joshua put up his hands to catch me, a frown forming on his face, his hands not quite closing around me. It was suddenly and immensely quiet.

“Didn’t realize you and your boyfriend were having a moment,” Pete said.

“We were just leaving.” I turned my back on Joshua.

Reviews:Andrea on Love in Panels wrote:

Is there an award for Best Written Blowjob? because... THIS BOOK. But what really made it an unforgettable read is the ongoing conversation around inclusivity, and the unconditional support the group of friends in You, Me & Her have for each other. The story's a true representation of friendship at an age of discovering what's possible with what we want from relationships. -Be that monogamy, chains dangling from the bedroom ceiling, or someone to chase your dreams with.

Erryn on Rainbow Gold Reviews wrote:

This is, at its heart, a story about love in its many forms. Nate has left behind more than a few broken hearts – women who believed they could ‘change’ him. He has a moment of reckoning with his ex-girlfriend right in the middle of the production, so he doesn’t come out unscathed. But he does come out a stronger person.

The sex scenes in this book are especially well-done. Some authors write the scenes clinically while others write so esoterically that you lose track of body parts. Ms. Chris provides her readers with all the sensuality while still giving them a very good picture in their minds of what is going on. Did I mention the scenes are hot?

This book works. On so many levels. Polyamorous relationships depend on honesty and jealousy can easily destroy them, but Nate, Sherry, and Joshua make it work. But not without problems. Because that’s real life – messy and emotion-packed and full of ups and downs.


High Lonesome

Cover for High Lonesome by Tanya Chris features three men and a snowy mountain scene

Joe doesn’t live on top of a mountain because he loves people. A late summer snowstorm is the perfect chance to send his customers down to lower altitude and enjoy a few days of solo strolls and fireside naps.

Tanner’s not staying at a high-altitude hut to admire the scenery. He’s got a date to keep with the sort of person you don’t want to disappoint, a date that’ll result in him earning some much-needed cash in exchange for what’s left of his self-respect. But that’s OK. He gave up on self-respect when he picked up the needle anyway.

Pyotr didn’t drop into a blizzard to rescue Tanner or to drag Joe back down to the real world. His mission is a lot colder than that. People are only pawns, and spies are only heroes to those who don’t know them.

Hermit, addict, spy. Three men, one snowstorm, zero reason to trust. And someone’s coming …

“We getting drunk tonight?” Pyotr asked as he watched Joe fill their shot glasses.

“We’re playing a game. You’ve heard of Truth or Dare? Well, tonight we’re going to play a game called Truth and Also Truth. Drink up.”

Pyotr knocked back his vodka while Joe did the same with the tequila. Tanner took a tentative sip from his glass like it was a tea cup, but he followed the first sip with another.

“What are we telling the truth about?” Pyotr asked.

“Good question. So far, I’d say not much. You’ve both been lying to me. I don’t know why you two are here, but you do. Both of you. You want to fill me in on what I’m missing?” He refilled their glasses.

Pyotr spun his shot glass around, sloshing some of the liquid over the rim. Joe was his kind of bartender, filling to the top, not to the line. Joe nodded at him and he went ahead and slammed the shot back, feeling it burn down his throat and warm his stomach. If Joe’s plan was to get him drunk enough to spill state secrets, it might just work. He was tired—tired of lying to everyone about everything, tired of being lied to back.

“You know why I’m here,” he said. “It was bunk here or freeze to death out there.”

“Or you could’ve stayed in the helicopter you rode in on.”

I was pleasantly surprised by its intrigue, as well as by each of the characters. It turned out to be a much deeper book than I’d anticipated, which delighted the hell out of me. I grew to care about these guys, about their very real struggles and weaknesses, so it was especially sweet when they got their HEA.

Erryn Barratt on Amazon wrote:

Wow, what a book. I think the tagline summarizes it perfectly: Three men. One snowstorm. Zero trust. There are certainly elements of a thriller – espionage, isolated location, questionable loyalties, treason, etc. But this book is so much more than that. This book is about relationships. Familial, authoritative, obligatory, and romantic.

There are tough scenes but the way Tanya Chris deftly uses and addresses the pains and realities of hard drug addictions, shows compassion and care with each of the characters that gutted me in the best way.
