Welcome to the Hot for Friday Book Boyfriends blog hop! If you’ve popped in here from somewhere else, this is one of the posts in the Book Boyfriends blog hop. You can find more here. Today’s story idea is the first kiss between a couple.
In this scene from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, Senth and NarrAy go dancing. Senth is HalfKin, a half feline-humanoid and half human. He’s also a professional thief who’s been hired to retrieve an item from the imperial armada. Tonight, it’s a pre-mission party, and although Senth has been warned by his master that NarrAy is an enhanced human and her touch is addictive, Senth dances with her anyway. This scene is told from NarrAy’s point of view.
The next two songs were fast, and NarrAy enjoyed watching Senth move. Whatever schedule they kept him on, it was clear he’d found time for fun. When he laughed, the bright dazzle of his light blue eyes and bouncing dark curls worked its own magic on her. She feasted her gaze on his sensual mouth, the way his fangs glimmered, so wet and sharp and ready to bite.
She sidled up to him, remembering the body she’d glimpsed that afternoon. Smooth chest, unlike a Kin. The moment she’d seen him half-naked, she’d had the urge to touch him. Feel his smooth chest. Smell his skin. Taste him. See his naked body in her bed the next morning.
She danced behind him, rubbing her back against his, sliding up, and then easing down with a shake of her hips. Aware that desire would force a release of pheromones, she reined in her thoughts.
The rhythm changed to a slower one. NarrAy knew better than to put herself in Senth’s arms in public. Unless she wanted a riot. His body against hers meant passion, and passion meant pheromones. A crowd would react in frenzy.
She grabbed his hand and pulled him off the floor. Not that it took a lot of effort. As they passed the table, she plucked up his jacket, hurried out the door and slipped into an elevator.
He didn’t question her, allowing her to lead without protest. Against her will, her pheromones released their first wave. NarrAy’s body calmed itself, and her temperature changed, as if her skin had ceased being a barrier to the air. A softness flowed through her. Peace swept over her like a drug.
At this level, she wasn’t addictive, but only the strongest-willed humans could resist any suggestion she made. Full-blooded Kin would cave without protest. What would a HalfKin do?
NarrAy rubbed up against Senth, and he wrapped his arms around her waist, fitting her along his length.
She danced her fingers up the front of his shirt, and slid them into his curly hair. NarrAy wrapped a strand around one finger and smiled into his catlike eyes. Standing on tiptoe to kiss him, she drew him down.
At the Mercy of Her Pleasure
Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device.
Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.
He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!
