What will Hayden do when he sees Envi for the 1st time in 15 years? Read an excerpt from MEMORIES OF US #Romance #MMRomance #PNR #MPreg #8Sunday

Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last weekend! Just a couple more excerpts from MEMORIES OF US, an MPreg MM Shifter Romance that is part of my Shifter Towers series. It is available as part of a limited-time MPreg collection called SPECIAL DELIVERY: SUMMER. Then I'll switch back to VAWN, which is now available for pre-order.

Set-up: Last weekend, I introduced you to Hayden, Envi's first love.

This weekend, I'm skipping ahead again to where Hayden sees Envi for the first time in fifteen years. It is important to note that Hayden is in his dragonfly form when he sees him. Also, Envi's real name is Enrique Viani. Enjoy!

Switching direction, I headed to the cottage. From what I remembered, the place had five bedrooms, a long galley kitchen, and a huge deck. The last time I was there, the place was packed for one of many family get-togethers I’d attended. Shortly after that, a lot of family stopped coming for various reasons, including Enrique.

I wasn’t able to attend Salvatore’s funeral in the city and had no idea who’d inherited the property, but I kept buzzing forward.

The green Mercedes SUV parked out front made me a little confident that whoever had arrived was supposed to be there. If someone was looking to steal furniture left behind, they’d likely have something bigger to take more, or a vehicle that didn’t stand out so much.

Zooming around the perimeter, I didn’t see anyone outside. But as I reached the front of the house, I noticed the screen door opening. Out walked Enrique.

**That's ten, and here are a few more...**

I flew straight up, feeling my heart beat hard in my thorax. It had been so long, and he looked as good as ever. I much preferred him in the faded jeans and cream button-down he wore than the flashy outfits he donned when he was Envi, showing so much bare skin to the world.

I couldn’t stay. He’d recognize this form as soon as he spotted me. And I didn’t want to talk to him. Not when he’d only leave again. What did I have to offer anyway? I wasn’t young anymore, and was carrying another man’s baby. Yet another alpha who’d left me.

Shifter Towers book six


Envi gave up on the idea of claiming a mate long ago. Once upon a time he'd believed he'd found his perfect other half, but their dreams took them in different directions. Now, Envi dedicates his life to making music.

When his uncle passes away, and he is willed the man's cottage, Envi must return to the wetland park where he vacationed for much of his teenage years. The place where he crushed on the same omega for several summers before he became Envi's first love. But there's no way the omega he'd loved and lost still lives there. Or, maybe he does....

Memories of Us features an alpha jaguar shifter who never got over his first love, and a pregnant omega dragonfly shifter with no money and no one to turn to. It is the sixth book in the MPreg MM Shifter Popstar Romance series by USA Today Bestselling Author Jessica E. Subject, and contains her sweetest happily ever after yet.

  1. My first thought was "Being a dragonfly shifter must be dangerous. Anything could take you out!" I hope that is not the case here. I'm also wondering if both forms (dragonfly and man) are pregnant and how that works. Fascinating concept!

    1. Thank you, Jenna! In the story, I talk about both of those things. Hayden is very aware of what could eat him when he's a dragonfly. And he is pregnant in both forms, but shifting is difficult the further along he is.

  2. Awww, kind of sad but I can't wait to see what happens next! Great snippet...

  3. I'm curious to know more. I feel for him. So sad with his past relationships.

  4. Life hasn't been easy for him, it seems. I hope he soon realizes he can't give up on love!

    1. No, it hasn't. He'll quickly learn about love with Envi back at the park.

  5. He hasn't had much luck with relationships. Maybe this time things will work out.

  6. Being a dragonfly shifter would be so cool, and so dangerous! I don't think I'll ever look at a dragonfly the same again. :-) I feel bad for him. Sounds like he's endured many broken hearts before.

  7. If someone knows you're a dragonfly shifter and is really mad at you, it seems like you'd be incredibly vulnerable.

    1. Yes, extremely vulnerable. You'd have to avoid that person.
