Catching Carter by Delaney Rain

I’ve written another short story from within the universe of The Sea Monster’s Mate!

Inspired by the requests from my mailing list members and stuck on writing The Incubus’s Mate, I turned to writing Catching Cater. In this story, you’ll learn more about Lyohasius, Ty’s parent, and how they came to arrive at Eric’s island at the end of The Sea Monster’s Mate. You’ll also get to know Hessan, Carter, Angelica, Steve, Holly, and the twins, Jonah and Kevin.

Here’s the official description:

Separated from their sibling Hessan during a hurricane, Lyohasius is desperate to find them. Being alone is not a state Lyohasius can bear, and finding other Cecaelia in the oceans of the world is never easy. They cannot give up on reuniting with Hessan.

When they do find each other, Hessan tells Lyohasius of their love for the human who rescued them from certain death after they were washed ashore. And now Hessan wishes for Lyohasius to meet his human’s sibling and possibly find love for themself. Skeptical to their core about love and humans, Lyohasius follows Hessan anyway.

Acting on instinct when they arrive in the Gulf, Lyohasius finds themself catching a human named Carter to save him from an angry alligator. The impact of Carter on Lyohasius’s life will change everything for this lonely Cecaelia, finally giving them the connections they’ve longed for.

This 16,000-word/64-page short story is a sweet and sexy instalove tale with tentacles in naughty places, low angst, and an HFN ending. It is best read after The Sea Monster’s Mate and is not a standalone story.

This story is available FREE to my mailing list subscribers, though I may bundle it and any other short stories from this universe for sale later on.
