Forged in Fire…

Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire by Kayelle Allen

Exiled to a barren world with only a human for company, the immortal Pietas demands the mortal serve him.

When Six refuses and insists they are equals, Pietas is outraged.

How dare a mortal refuse anything he requests?

But when he needs Six’s support to find and join his people, Pietas must learn to humble himself and ask for help–politely– and even more outrageous–request forgiveness. From a human.

For without aid, the immortal king might spend an eternity alone, never finding the people he has already died over a thousand times to save…

Forged in Fire Excerpt

In this scene from Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire, the not-quite-human Six offers water to the immortal king, Pietas.

Six slid their canteen off over his head and held it out to Pietas.

Accepting anything from a human, an altered one at that, had violated every instinct at first. To take from an enemy, yes. Always. Let one give you something as if you needed it? Admit a weakness before an enemy?

Never.

But this was Six.

Pietas took it.

Ultras could go days without water, but they consumed it when they had it. He wiped one dusty hand across his mouth. The satisfaction of assuaged thirst never failed to please. What simple things in life brought pleasure! In captivity, he’d dreamed of even a drop to cool his tongue. He’d sworn he’d never take water for granted again.

Six had offered it to their companions during the climb, but the entire lot refused anything a mortal’s lips had touched. Yes, Six was a quasi-immortal. A dead human soldier who’d been resurrected and enhanced with Ultra blood. A “ghost.” But to the others, that gave him even less status.

Pietas wavered on few things, but on this? Should he call the man human, mortal, quasi-immortal, or ghost? He’d elected to choose as the mood struck. But one in particular annoyed Six.

“Thanks, ghost.” He thrust the canteen against Six’s chest.

Staggering, he swore in Spanish. “Find another name for me.”

“Tell me your mortal name then.”

“You know I can’t.” Six scratched his cheek. “Gotta protect my family. If your kind knew who they were, they’d slaughter them. You wouldn’t, but them?”

Now they were getting somewhere. “So you do trust me?”

“Pi, there’s more honor in your left big toe than your entire race combined.” He tipped up the canteen but then paused. “No offense.”

“None taken. But we’re stranded, my friend. Unless a miracle happens, by the time we get off this world, your family will be long dead.” He added, “No offense.”

Six finished his drink and plugged the canteen. “None taken. Sorry. Can’t do it.” He lifted the strap back over his head and settled it onto his shoulder, the canteen at his back. “Seriously, Pi, your people hear you call me you-know-what, it’ll give away I was Ghost Corps. We both know what they’ll do to me.”

Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas

Universal book link (find it anywhere) https://books2read.com/u/4DovO7

On the day of impending peace talks with humans, Pietas, narcissistic leader of the immortal Ultras, must bow to the will of the mighty Council or face impeachment.

As he suspected, the peace talks devolve into an inescapable trap. Faced with the perma-death of his beloved mother and the destruction of his people, Pietas surrenders.

Once imprisoned aboard a vessel bound for the edge of the galaxy, he finds an unlikely ally in the human to whom he surrendered.

How low has he fallen!

He now has no choice. Either he will doom his people to exile and face the end of his own immortality, or place his faith in that which he most hates. A human.

Origin of Pietas Excerpt

In this scene, Pietas experiences an unfamiliar situation — a friend who has his back. It begins with Pietas speaking.

“My father would get so angry with me, Six. He’d say it under his breath, but I heard. He’d call me useless. I say that about myself.”

“How can you think of yourself as useless? You’re the most powerful Ultra ever created. Everybody knows that.”

With a twitch of his fingers, Pietas dismissed the praise. “It is not how I feel. If I were telepathic, I could have found my people by now. If I were telepathic, I wouldn’t have gotten us marooned on an alien world. No, my father was right. When it comes to telepathy, I am useless.”

“Wow.” Six tossed part of a small branch onto the fire, sending sparks spiraling upward. “Biggest pity party I’ve ever been to.”

Pietas leaned on one hand to face Six. “What is a pity party?

“When you feel sorry for yourself and expect others to do the same thing ‘Poor me. Look how I’m suffering.’ That’s a pity party.”

“Excuse me for sharing how I felt.”

“You were doing fine, until you said you were useless. I don’t care who told you that. It’s a pure out-and-out lie and you know it. To let anybody else’s opinion of you keep you from being your best…” Six threw down the stick. “Look, Ultra. That’s not you, okay? Listen to me. I sat with you while you were nothing but two big blue eyes, and blackened skin stretched over bones. You couldn’t lift your head, you were so weak. You tried not to show how much pain you were in, but I could see it. I could hear it in the way you panted, trying to breathe. The way you hobbled about as if all your bones were broken. But you fought like a caged animal to get your strength back. I will never accept any lie about you being useless. You’re one of– No, you are the strongest person I’ve ever known.”

The pride at those words from so dear a friend–a human friend–brought tears to his eyes. Pietas turned his head, and blinked them away.

Here’s a quick excerpt from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, my sweet science fiction romance, book one of the Antonello Brothers series.

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure

In this scene from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen, Captain NarrAy Jorlan has just met professional thief Senth Antonello for the first time. She’s taking it slow, sizing him up for the job at hand. Usually, men are distracted by her pheromones, but on this occasion, she finds herself on the distracted side.

NarrAy crossed her legs, exposing a good portion of her skin under the short dress. If she’d been sitting opposite Senth, the length might have been welcome. But his father lounged in that chair and Senth sat beside her on the couch. Her position put her a little closer to him.

“Empress Destoiya murdered my parents,” NarrAy continued her story, “as surely as if she’d been the one who shot them in the back. They were scientists working on secret technology. When rumors got oHe's at the mercy of this lovely captain |#Romance #Veterans Hop #SciFiut that they were planning to give their findings to the rebellion, the Conqueror had them killed and then confiscated everything, including their personal belongings. There was a locket my mother inherited from my grandmother, which my grandmother inherited from her grandmother. It’s mine and I want it back.”

She met Senth’s penetrating gaze and held it. She heard rather than saw Encie enter the room and take up a place near the door. Broxus moved to stand beside her. NarrAy couldn’t take her gaze off Senth. How did I ever see him as a boy?

He had a man’s hands, well-groomed nails and sinewy forearms that revealed power and strength. His biceps bulged. Angular jaw, a firm mouth with lips made for kissing. A hot flutter rose within her and she tamped it down at once, refusing to let her pheromones get the upper hand.

Senth watched her, gaze narrowed, head tilted. He gave a sniff and then eased into a smile. His proximity heightened her desire. He smelled clean, fresh and ruggedly male. A tingle signaled the imminent letdown of her pheromones and she clenched her hands into fists, fighting to calm the spike of lust flickering through her like a torch about to combust.

Senth’s faint smile revealed nothing, but he lifted his head, sniffing the air. Kin could smell emotion and desire. Could HalfKin?

He asked me something. Pay attention to business and not your body. She sat up straighter. “I’m sorry. Would you repeat that, please?”

“What I said was no one hires a level-nineteen thief, transports him to another world to break into a government building and then wants him to steal back a locket with sentimental value. Especially one in the custody of the Conqueror. What’s it really worth?”

“It’s a priceless heirloom.” She set a hand against her bosom.

Senth didn’t follow her hand’s movement. Instead he tilted his head as he leaned back against the couch. “I’m more skilled at this job than you are beautiful, NarrAy and that’s saying something. Tell me the truth.”

Her cheeks warmed. When had she ever blushed over such an offhand compliment?
