So hard to fight his inner preditor #Excerpt Jawk by Kayelle Allen #SciFi #MMRomance #MFRWhooks

Setting up the Scene

Luc has invited Jawk to come with him on trial run of a new luxury star-yacht, but Jawk refused because he had to work. When Luc tells Jawk's boss he'd like to take him on the cruise, the man gives Jawk permission to go.

But Jawk is not happy about others telling him what to do... or when to do it.

In this scene, Jawk is in Luc's hoversine on the way to the starport.

Jawk bit the inside of his cheeks, fighting his inner predator's hot-blooded demand for a piece of Luc Saint-Cyr's oh-so-cocky ass. His human father's voice rang through his head like a siren. You're not an animal, Jawk. You're a Kin. One of a civilized, honorable race.

That did not mean Jawk had never tasted human blood. He licked his lips, imagining the fierce, hot rush of it in his mouth, the scent of the man's throat beneath his fangs. The intense warmth of this man, coupled with the glimpse of his erotic taste, drove into Jawk's gut.

The man's solid black gaze refused to look away. No prey held the eyes of a predator--not one this close or for this long--unless they were stupid, drunk, or enthralled. Luc was incapable of the first, and not one whiff of alcohol clung to him.

The feral, victorious joy of a hunter rose up in Jawk.

This man took his breath.

Jawk growled, and a spark of fear scented the hoversine's oversized cabin, then faded, tamped down by the emergence of a different kind of heat. Before Luc could flinch, Jawk launched himself forward, pinned Luc against the seat and sank his claws into the butter-soft leather.

The man gasped.

Jawk gripped his throat with naked fangs, mouth open wide. He gave one stroke of his tongue, and the taste of lust flooded his mouth. Pure, raw, unshielded, savage.

The hard length and heat of Luc's body fit against his, its nearness raising steam between them. The heady scent of romtzeet filled the air. Humans called it testosterone; Kin males reeked of it.

Luc oozed it like the finest cologne.

If You're Bad in Hell... Deleted Scene from For Women Only #SciFi #Romance

This is a deleted scene from the book For Women Only, a Science Fiction Romance. Khyff is a master of pleasure with a tortured soul. Mehfawni wants to redeem the man her people destroyed. His fragile trust could be a response of love and a healing heart -- or a ruse for revenge.

Setting up the scene

Khyff is under orders to seduce Ambassador Mehfawni Ruh, or his brother will be allowed to die. If Khyff obeys, his brother will live.

All his life, Khyff has been forced into one compromising situation after another. Now, after getting to know Mehfawni, he is torn about hurting her. But what can he possibly do?

I deleted this scene because it didn't add to the overall story, but I've always liked it.

"Have you ever been to Kyrenie, Fawni?"

"No. Isn't that the firestorm planet? Have you been there?"

Khyff nodded.

"Lucky you! I've heard it's beautiful. What was it like?"

"Lucky? Do your people believe in hell?"

With a gasp, Mehfawni covered her mouth. "Yes."

"If you're bad in hell, they send you to Kyrenie."

She caught the flicker of a smile in his eyes. They both laughed.

"I'm sorry, Khyff." She slid her fingertips down his cheek and along his chin. "But I promise, you will never have to go back."

He pressed his brow against hers. "Thank you for saying that."

His relief smelled like the sweet fragrance of Vulits, clean and fresh. "No one will ever make you do anything you don't want to do again."

His scent abruptly changed and he turned his head. Why didn't he believe her? Was there some part of what she'd said that he thought was a lie? Mehfawni stroked her fingers into his hair and drew him closer for a quick kiss. "I want you to believe me, Khyffy." She pressed her cheek against his. "I want to make you feel safe."

With a sigh, Khyff took her hands and rested his brow against hers. "Please don't promise me anything. Promises only break your heart. Just love me."

Forbid My Heart by Kayelle Allen

Never forbid the heart.

When one lover tells the truth, the other must decide whether to bare his heart and be open, or to forbid it...

Izzorah's lover pledged to take him back to his homeworld, but Izzorah knows the fact they're gay could cause their death if the Kin Pride Council hears about it. His heart tells him to trust Luc, but his fear is real. He snuggles up to Luc, seeking comfort.

Luc is immortal. He has the perspective to understand his lover's concerns, and not worry. Izzorah's unreserved trust and respect make Luc long to wipe out any shadow of trouble or sorrow.

Luc would turn the Kin homeworld upside down to protect him, but without revealing what he is, how can he convince Izzorah he can?

Available only to readers of Surrender Love (link inside the book)
Surrender Love on Amazon

In this scene from Forbid My Heart, Izzorah has just had a "discussion" with Luc, that Luc supposes is over. But he hasn't counted on his lover's wily ways.

As a reminder, Izzorah is a Kin, a feline humanoid with catlike ears and eyes, fangs, and claws beneath human nails. Otherwise, he looks quite human.

 

Izzorah sat opposite Luc, hand on Luc's heart, and breathed in the varying scents of his lover. Luc's will stood between them like a living creature, solid as the walls around them. He might mean every word he said. He might be able to kill the Falehla tzesar. But keeping them safe on Felidae?

How could anyone do that?

Izzorah remained silent. He would not dishonor his lover by arguing the point. He hadn't won agreement about not going home, but he could deal with that later. He would have to approach the subject from a different angle.

He leaned back, lowered his ears, and set them outward, showing submission instead of willfulness.

Luc smiled, and his scent showed he thought he'd won.

Springing forward, Izzorah grabbed him and then flattened Luc against the bed. He clamped his fangs on the tip of his lover's chin.

A tart spark of unease scented the air. "Um...Rah?"

Purring in response, Izzorah kept his teeth against Luc's skin.

"This bite's good?" Luc's mixed scent revealed curiosity.

Izzorah released him and sat astride Luc's waist. He tossed his head to move hair out of his eyes. "Ehh nim shree."

"A love bite. You're being playful."

His gaze locked with Luc's, Izzorah bent forward and lightly nipped Luc's lower lip, nibbled the upper one, and then scraped his fangs across the tip of Luc's nose. He kissed it, then moved back to hover above his mouth, their gazes still linked. "I was bite-thanking you."

Oh no. This is going to be trouble. Excerpt from Lights Out #SciFi #MFRWhooks #FreeBook

 

Uh oh...

In this scene, Tornahdo is having a quiet drink at the bar when another member of the Ghost Corps shows up and tells him to go home.

From across the bar, Ravenstongue sauntered toward him. "Why you here?"

Tornahdo kicked back in his chair. After stretching out his legs, he crossed his ankles. "Why do you care?"

"Big ops tomorrow. Lights out in ten. Time for you to go home and go to bed."

Behind the bar, the keeper closed up shelves and battened down doors.

"Yeah?" Tornahdo flicked a hand toward the door. "I'll follow you out."

"I'm not leavin'. Didn't you hear? We passed inspection with the highest scores. Got a free night out." Ravenstongue jabbed a finger toward Tornahdo. "But you gotta go home like a good boy."

In no kingdom in the galaxy would that happen.

Ravenstongue lifted two fingers, signaling his cohorts.

The keeper ducked behind the bar while the goons flanked their wannabe boss, imbecilic grins in place.

A pair of demons usually sat on Tornahdo's shoulders. The bad demon laid out strategy while the good demon discouraged action. Tonight, the good demon flipped a middle finger toward Ravenstongue with a not-so-subtle suggestion to kick his ass.

Tornahdo took his time rising, slid his chair under the table. "What did you say?"

"I said, 'You gotta go home like a good boy.'"

Hanging his thumbs in his belt, Tornahdo gave him a slow smile. "Go back to the bar, finish your drink and we'll pretend we're all friends and leave together. This is your last chance for a peaceful end."

"Peaceful." With a scoff, Ravenstongue jerked his head toward Short Goon. "You hear that?"

"Yeah. Maybe we oughta do what--"

Ravenstongue jabbed him with an elbow.

"I mean, yeah! I heard that." He leaned closer to his boss. "We gonna?"

"No, you idiot. Shut your face and back me up."

How did these hotheads enlist? Ghost Corps must have been desperate for bodies. Literally. A fighter's corpse they could reanimate. Which was a sobering thought.

Was that what the corps thought of him?

Lights Out by Kayelle Allen

He can save mankind. After he does one important thing. Die.
Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You'll live forever, they said. You'll save mankind, they said. They didn't say that to do it, first he had to die.
When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he's assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.
He's facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.
Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed "Lights Out." No, there's more to this than he can see.
To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time--somehow--find a way to keep himself alive...

Wulf, Tales of the Chosen by Kayelle Allen

With his career threatened and his life at risk, Wulf must seek help from the one man he swore he would never trust again, Luc Saint-Cyr, a.k.a. the Harbinger. An enigmatic man whose legendary power makes him the most feared person in the empire.

For the Harbinger, saving Wulf is a simple matter of asserting his will. Luc's ties to the Thieves' Guild grant him access anywhere. He can protect Wulf without difficulty.

Until Luc brings Wulf home for safekeeping, and discovers the real reason for the threats. Protecting Wulf has not only put his and Wulf's lives at risk, it's also risked the life of Luc's teenaged son. This is beyond protection, now. To the Harbinger, this is personal...

In this scene from Wulf - Tales of the Chosen, Luc has brought Wulf with him on a flight between two planets.

Excerpt

Luc introduced Wulf to the captain, ordered dinner for the two of them, and then took Wulf to his private stateroom. It held a desk with a built-in bench seat and an oversized bed with a pull down mesh covering that protected sleepers during low gravity.

Finally alone with the man he'd craved all day, Luc shut and locked the door, and leaned against it.

Wulf ambled around, trailing his fingers across the built-in dresser. Dressed in conservative business clothes, he fit in the room as if he'd been born to be there. He sat on the end of the bed and gazed back at Luc with an appealing mix of shyness and come-hither seduction.

Luc shrugged out of his jacket. "Is the room cool enough for you?"

"Mmm hmm."

"Good." He started opening his shirt. "We'll begin with a shower."

Wulf blushed, as Luc expected he would.

"Time for you to tell me all about that fantasy you confessed to having."

He cleared his throat. "Nothing much to tell."

Luc chuckled. "Oh no. You're not getting out of it. I want every delicious detail."

Wulf crossed to him, and rested both hands on his chest. "We can do what you want first."

"Absolutely not." Bracing his feet wider apart, he drew Wulf between them and up against his body. "I want to hear what turns you on." He unfastened the top button of Wulf's white shirt. "I'm going to do everything to you that you dreamed about."

A small sound of pleasure left Wulf's mouth as he leaned up and kissed him. Luc drew him close, sliding down the planes of Wulf's firm body to his hard ass. He lifted his hands and held Wulf's face between them as he took his mouth in a drugging kiss. Lips still connected, he traded places with him and pushed Wulf up against the door.

Luc licked Wulf's mouth, sweeping his tongue inside to taste every part. He ripped open his lover's shirt, shoved it back off his shoulders and down his arms.

Wulf let it fall to the floor and reached over his head and pulled off the T-shirt.

"Don't move, Wulf. Let me look at you." All that tawny bared skin, his chest rising and falling... "You are luscious. Masculine. I love that about you." Luc ran his hands across Wulf's chest. His skin felt cool, the texture perfect, his muscles hard. "I never visualized you as smooth. In most of your modeling shots, you're not."

Wulf lifted his whiskey-colored gaze. "I shaved it the other night when I got drunk." He gave a half-hearted laugh. "I have no idea what possessed me to do such a thing."

"I'm glad you did. I like you this way. Keep it, love." He bent and ran his tongue across one brown nipple, smiling when Wulf shivered and tossed back his head. "You like that. Good. So do I." He swirled his tongue across it again.

Ordered by the Empress to find out if the lover of a friend is having an affair, Alitus investigates. As Minister of Imperial Intelligence, Alitus has access to every camera and remote in the empire. Which is a problem, because Wulf's affair is with Alitus.

As a Better, an enhanced human, Alitus can touch no one -- his pheromones are addictive.

When the man asks the empress to investigate, Wulf's relationship with Alitus could be exposed. Complicating matters, the empress reveals her immortality, and requires Alitus to prove his loyalty. Her test throws him straight into Wulf's arms, right in front of the empress and Wulf's lover. Hiding what he and Wulf are to each other has taken discipline and denial.
