The Devil’s Bargain by Rian Fox

An Explicit M/M Taboo Demon Erotic Short Story

heat linebreak

The last thing Silas Cromwell expected was for a book to change his life. When a rare first edition book from a famous 19th-century Occultist ends up in Silas’s lap at an auction, life as he knows it suddenly changes. Pressured into performing one of the rituals from the book by a friend, Silas gets a tease of regret. Now Silas can’t sleep, is having nightmares that end with him waking up terrified. Something obscene, dark and deadly wants Silas and he isn’t human.

Bazaduil lusts for Silas and won’t take no for an answer, even if it means tricking and seducing him. In a life where being told ‘there are no monsters,’ it will be one lie Silas will have to face. Will Silas be able to ignore Bazaduil advances or will he submit to this demon’s twisted agenda?

An M/M Black Monster erotic short story that has dubious consent, a tad bit of bondage, informal dominant/submissive play, implied mpreg, breeding kink, tail kink, and monster sex.

Silas shrieked as he crashed out of the dream into harsh reality. The room was dark, lit only by the moonlight streaming through the crack between his bedroom curtains. The dim light was enough to show the outline of a large, hulking presence crouched at the end of his bed.

Just like the fantasy he had earlier down in his basement, the creature had crimson-colored skin, a pair of pitch-black horns twice as thick as Silas’s arms. They
curled slightly inward, it’s long black claws piercing through the duvet. Time seemed to slow down as the creature finally raised its head.

Its face was a nightmare made real, all hard ridges, with sharp fangs peeking from full black lips. But it was the creature’s eyes that stilled his blood; a gold that burned into his very soul like hellfire, spelling his doom.

“Silas Andreas Cromwell,” the monster intoned. “You have called me and I have come.”
