In this scene, Pietas and his android servant and bodyguard, Uurah, have gathered what Pietas needs for a few days on the planet they're orbiting. After finagling his way out of being accompanied by the overprotective bodyguard, Pietas is reminded not to leave until he says goodbye to his cat, a huge black panther. But the cat might not be so easy to ditch...

 

A door opened and a servant android entered, the black panther at his side.

Pietas stooped and opened his arms. "My good, big kitty!"

Tiklaus trotted over to him, stuck its nose against Pietas and snuffled him. Shadow.

Their shared bond transmitted concepts and feelings, but the panther used a few words as well. Pietas petted the cat's wide head. Yes, you smell Shadow.

Even the panther tribe thought of the general that way and had given Cyken the moniker as his tribal name. A rare honor. Though Pietas hadn't seen Cyken for over twenty hours, and had bathed and changed clothes, the animal still knew they'd been together.

Tiklaus sniffed Pietas's neck. Whisper.Ring of the Dragon: Antonello Brothers - Immortal

Yes, Tik. I've been with Whisper too. Joss sends her love. You're welcome to go see her while I'm gone for the next few days.

Tik go Promise. Keep. Care. Guard.

Promise: his tribal name, earned by keeping his word. Something Cyken failed to recognize. No, Tik. I'm not taking you this time. I don't need a guard.

The panther laid back its ears, green eyes narrowed. Tik go Promise. Keep. Care. Guard.

No, my friend. Pietas pressed his face against the cat's muzzle. I'm sorry.

The panther rubbed its nose against Pietas's jaw. Thing go Promise. Keep. Care. Guard.

"Thing" being Uurah, who had no people smell. No, I'm not taking Uurah either. I'll be fine. Don't worry about me.

No worry. Much know. Much much danger. Thing go. Keep. Care. Guard.

First Uurah, and now Tiklaus. There was no dealing with these two. No, Tiklaus. I'm not taking you and I'm not taking Uurah.

Thing go. The cat wrapped its tail around its feet and stared at him, unblinking, ears forward. Take Thing. Much danger. Keep. Care. Guard. Take Thing.

What was this, a conspiracy? Pietas tucked a strand of hair behind one ear. All right. For you, I'll compromise. I'll take a female android down to the planet and then once I get where I'm going, I'll send her back. Deal?

Tik no like. The cat laid back both ears. Take Thing.

I'm not taking Uurah. I'm not taking you. Sorry. I'll take the female android. Deal? Take it or leave it.

Tik no like. Keep. Care. Guard. Take Thing.

For the last time, Tiklaus. No. I'm not taking anyone but the female android. Understand?

A low growl followed by a sneeze: a grudging yes.

Pietas stood. Some king he was, ordered about by androids and cats. "Uurah, Tiklaus wants me to take a female android. Go ahead and put one together."

"Excellent, my lord. I had one ready, just in case."

More than love. Surrender.

A little feral, a little innocent, all male, Izzorah Ceeow flees a world that denies him basic rights. Forced into a human society blind to his needs, the young Kin male lives for his music. When a freak accident throws him into the care of Luc Saint-Cyr, the most powerful human in the empire, the attention Izzorah receives is beyond anything he'd ever dreamed. But is the attraction he feels toward his rescuer gratitude, lust, or a deeper, abiding call to yield all that he is?

The prestige of Luc's power, wealth, and influence direct an empire scattered across the stars. His word shapes the foundations of business and his financial prowess is of mythic proportions. Yet beneath the myths beats the heart of a man who craves what he has never given and is certain he will always be denied -- steadfast, faithful love.

Excerpt from Surrender Love

Luc and Izzorah are sitting side by side, with Izzorah leaning against Luc's chest while Luc talks about his recent breakup with a previous lover. Izzorah is not only listening, he's also using his gift of kahlah to interpret the scents related to Luc's emotions, because he wants to understand.

---

Surrender Love: Antonello Brothers - Immortal"You didn't know what to do when he left, did you?" Izzorah played with one of Luc's buttons. "Should you forget him? Try to win him back?"

"I tried making him jealous by having an affair with a Kin male named Jawk." A tinge of lavender and bitter nutmeg sparked, showing Luc's regret. "What a pointless attempt that was. I doubt anything I did would have kept Wulf from leaving. He was already in love and we were finished." Luc faced Izzorah. "Pardon me for rambling. I shouldn't have burdened you with that."

"No, you needed to tell it. You're glad it's over, but it still hurt."

"It did. I tried telling myself it wasn't happening. That I didn't love him anyway, but--" Luc stopped. "I did. Wulf and I lived in the same house but led separate lives. It was pitiful, the way things ended. No final conflict. No big blowup. More like air leaking from a balloon. I let him go. Gave him my blessing. Then moped because I was alone. I was pathetic."

"No. You'd never be that. Breakups are a kind of death. The loss aches. Slowness doesn't make it less painful."

"True." Luc's focus made Izzorah's mouth go dry. But then the man smiled, and it warmed Izzorah's soul. Luc leaned his head against the wall. "You have incredible insight. And you're right about the pain. With you, I'm at peace. Last thing I need is to fall in love with another heartbreaker. I'm hoping you don't turn out to be that, because it's too late."

The truth was in Luc's scent, a faint smell of sweet grass, along with fresh linen, showing respect. The mixture meant what Luc felt surprised him.

"I don't understand." Izzorah understood all right, but Luc needed to admit it to himself. That was in his scent too. And Izzorah wanted to hear the words. "Too late for what?"

"Too late for me to turn back. I've already fallen for you."

Izzorah scooted closer to Luc. "I promise."

Luc shifted a bit, allowing Izzorah to fit against him. "Tell me what you mean by that." He looked down.

Holding Luc's dark gaze, Izzorah smiled. "That I'll be what you need."

"Will you, now?" Patience and amusement eddied through Luc's scent in an appealing mixture. With one hand, Luc stroked Izzorah's hair and then he coiled a strand around one finger. "Suppose you tell me what you think that is."

Izzorah curled up against Luc's chest and wrapped one arm over Luc's waist. "A shelter for your heart."

Welcome to the circus that was his life, complete with balloons #SciFi #MMromance #MFRWauthor

Izzorah had been injured previously and is taking pain medication. Luc has made sure he's taken it, and the two of them have ventured outside towards Luc's long black hoversine.

About a thousand of Izzorah's fans are waiting. When the door opens and he and Luc appear, a cheer goes up.

Excerpt from Surrender Love

Izzorah hung back and Luc waited beside him. "They're all friends, Izzorah. This is a party. Do the wave." Luc raised his hand and Izzorah lifted his.

The cheer was deafening.

Izzorah smiled, but his chest rose and fell rapidly, his lips a faint blue.

"Relax, Izzorah. Focus on me. Deep breath in. Let it all out."

Izzorah sucked in a gulp of air, blew it out.

"Good. Now, do it again. In... out. You're doing well. Wave again."

Izzorah did so. "Wow." He rubbed his eyes. "This pain pill is making me see things. The sky is full of colors."

"You're not hallucinating. Those are balloons. Someone's handing them out."

"Someone's handing out balloons?" Izzorah sounded incredulous. "Are you sure? That's crazy."

"Don't let it rattle you. It's part of the circus that is my life, although, thankfully, there aren't usually balloons."

She's not expensive. She's outrageous #SciFi #MMromance

Izzorah has never spent money on clothing. He's a rockstar who lives in jeans and t-shirts, while Luc's ex was a fashion model. The two men could not be more different, so when Luc suggests having clothing made for Izzorah, he balks.

Excerpt from Surrender Love

Luc stroked Izzorah's face, needing to touch him. "I'll have my tailor come out. Maybe have Icia Teoh do a few designs for you. She'd like playing with you, no doubt."

"Playing with me?"

"Figure of speech. She'll treat you like a gorgeous Kin doll. Beautiful and perfect. She'll be delighted to design for you."

"You mean designer clothes made for me? But my cousin Trey says Icia Teoh's expensive."

"No, no. Icia Teoh's not expensive. She's outrageous. And worth every drak." Luc braced a hand on the wall on either side of Izzorah. "Kiss me."

Izzorah slid his arms around Luc's waist and rose on tiptoe to offer his mouth.

Having Izzorah against his body sent a shiver through Luc and he set both hands on Izzorah's shoulders. Luc nuzzled the catlike ears. "You smell good."

Izzorah purred. "T'hahr, you feel good." He rubbed himself against Luc.

Pulling Izzorah up hard against him, Luc slanted his mouth across Izzorah's lips. His Kin lover yielded to his touch, digging his claws into Luc's shirt to hold him close.

When the kiss ended, Luc pulled out his shirt and examined the claw holes on the sides.

"Uh-oh." Izzorah drooped his ears but bared his fangs in a human grimace. "Sorry. Was it expensive?"

"It doesn't matter. Getting roughed up by you is worth it." Luc tapped him on the nose and pressed his brow against Izzorah's. "I'll spend a fortune on clothes because of you. You seem to like ripping them to shreds."

"Easy fix. Stay naked. Is this shirt ruined?"

"Quite."

"Then you won't mind this." Izzorah used one claw to slice off each of the shirt's buttons, which made tink sounds as they hit the floor. The undershirt he gripped with one hand and sliced through with the claws of the other.

Bare-chested, exposed before his lover's eyes, pride mixed with a vulnerability Luc had experienced with no other lover. Not from fear, nor from Izzorah's fangs or claws, but from Luc knowing he could no longer shield his heart.

Izzorah owned it.

"There." Izzorah dusted off his hands. "Much better."

"Playing with fire."

Luc's Kin lover purred. "Ffffftt, I hope so." He drew Luc down, into another kiss. The hot, wet mouth beneath Luc's tasted of strawberries and the sweetness that was Izzorah. His rough tongue was a reminder of his nature.

A little feral, a little innocent, all male.

An excerpt from Surrender Love

Luc and Izzorah are lovers at this point, and they've wandered out into the kitchen for snacks in the middle of the night.

They kick back and talk, getting to know one another.

***

"This is the best evening I've had in months." Luc slid down in his chair and stretched, reaching both arms over his head. "I need some time off. I think I'll take you for a week of vacation. Spend some time getting to know you better."

"A vacation?" Izzorah's ears perked up. "Where?"

"Where do you want to go?"

"I-- I've traveled with Kumwhatmay, but I've never vacationed in the Empire."

"Not even the beach?"

Izzorah shook his head. "Never been."

"The beach it is. Can you swim?"

"Yes. I used to go camping back home. We had rivers. I can paddle a tsiyusdi."

Luc leaned in. "Say that again, slower."

"Chee-yoos-dee."

"Which means...?"

"It's a kind of boat. You know, a device to get water in your shoes and your butt wet."

A hand over his chest, Luc laughed aloud. Beside Izzorah's seat, Luc drew him close, kissed him and held on, kissing as if it was all he had to do.

"Are you sore?"

Izzorah's cheeks went scalding hot. He'd spent the last few hours stark naked with this man, yet here he was blushing over a question? He needed to get a grip. Drooping both ears down and back, he gave one negative shake of his head.

"Not anywhere?"

Though he squirmed, Izzorah met Luc's gaze. "Okay, a tiny little bit, but I don't mind."

Luc took Izzorah's hand. "I don't want you in pain."

"It's not pain. It's more a burn from hard exercise. You know how when you get your second wind and your muscles ache afterward, but it still feels worth it. It's like that. I'm satisfied in a way I've never been. As if all the tension I ever felt is gone from my body."

Luc held his gaze for a long time, saying nothing. Izzorah felt "studied" in a way he couldn't explain. At last, Luc's mouth curled into a slow smile and he leaned in and kissed him. Sweet, loving, gentle.

"This was your first time. I wanted to make it special." He stroked a fingertip along Izzorah's left ear. "I never want to disappoint you."

"Disappoint? Oh, Luc!" He drew his lover's hand close and kissed his palm. "It was so much better than special. Every time I imagined how my first time would be, it was never as good as what we did."

A crisp mint of gratitude sparked. Luc broke into a serene smile. "I'm glad I could be good for you. You're good for me."

Izzorah slid one claw tip along Luc's jaw. "Am I?"

"Yes. You make me laugh and you help me relax. I need that."

The scent of Luc's contentment made Izzorah's own troubles disappear. There were no deadlines, no concerts or tours. No practice sessions. No fans to please. Nothing but this man. His lover.

His hero.
