Find what you need at the Store Front. Blood, sex…we have it all just for you.
The supernaturals have taken over the earth, leaving the humans to serve them. The Store Front is one place for the supernaturals to find partners for feeding and sexual needs. Vic, a wolf shifter, and Gale, a vampire, have a special human female they love to visit. They know the bond between them goes far beyond the bedroom, but convincing Kitty the triad should happen might not be so easy.
Kitty longs to leave the Store Front and the total darkness of the earth. The one bright spot in her day is a visit from Gale and Vic. She loves the two supernatural men, even if she can’t voice the words. Do they return her affections on a deeper level or is she just a pawn to them? She’s not sure, but she’s willing to risk her heart and get wild after dark in order to find out.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal sex.
Publisher's Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Wild After Dark anthology by Totally Bound Publishing.

“The Earth will never be safe again.” Kitty Davis peered out of the picture window of the Store Front. “Not until the balance is restored.”
The street lamps glowed above the sidewalks and a few cloaked figures made their way up and down the main drag of Clarke. She didn’t recognize anyone on the street, but then she wouldn’t know many of them. Humans no longer owned the world. The Vampires and Shifters now ran things. The humans had become little more than slaves to the supernatural beings and were locked in perpetual darkness.
“I don’t want to live in the darkness and bear children,” she muttered. “I want the chance to be free and find a person who loves me—not this.”
Couples paired off around her and disappeared into the various rooms of the building. The law had come down from the Governor stating the humans existed for the sole means of creating children with the shifters and as a blood source for the vampires. She pulled her robe over her shoulders to stave off the chill. The darkness depressed her. She had no future beyond the Store Front.
“You’re safe inside,” her friend Maddox said. She hiked up her bra top again. “We could be out there trying to fend for ourselves. I’m not saying this is great, but it’s better than starving.”
Kitty respected Maddox’s tendency to see the bright side of the situation, but she couldn’t see the bright side of being a blood slave.
“What if there’s more to our lives than being what we are? I want a life, not a virtual death sentence.” Yes, being at the Store Front meant protection. The women were there as courtesans for the supernaturals, and were kept safe in order for them to provide those services. The rules didn’t forbid her from leaving if she chose to go, but why bother? If she did leave, she’d be subjected to the law of the supernaturals. Too many bad things could happen—being killed, being attacked or dying of starvation. She refused to risk her chances of staying alive.
Maybe her men would come in today. She hadn’t seen Vic or Gale in what seemed like forever. They always treated her with respect and care. Her blood warmed just thinking about them.
“Girl,” a male voice shouted. “Kitty.”
Kitty shuddered. The command from the owner, William, meant one thing. She was being requested as a blood slave. She shrugged out of her robe and handed the garment to Maddox. “Wish me luck,” she murmured, then strode over to the vampire at the counter. The guy didn’t look familiar. Maybe he wouldn’t come back.
