Posts about Luc Saint-Cyr and Izzorah Ceeow when they are together.  Both are characters in books by Kayelle Allen.

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.

Do you love chocolate and cherries? So do Luc and Izzorah!

Surrender Forever Dessert Contest

In Surrender Love, Luc and Izzorah share a dessert made with chocolate and cherries. I decided to look for real world recipes and include them in a giveaway booklet for readers when the book is released.

You can enter your recipe! Details and how to enter below.

Excerpt: the dessert scene from Surrender Love

Luc and Izzorah have finished dinner alone and have polished off a delicious dessert with chocolate and cherries. In the final edition, the dessert will be chosen from the Surrender Forever Dessert Contest. Here, it's cheesecake.

 

After dinner, they enjoyed a light wine while they each tore into massive slices of cheesecake topped with a thick sauce of fresh cherries in brandy.

"Oh, stars that was good." Izzorah put down his fork. "If my father hadn't raised me to be polite, I swear I'd lick my plate. That was the best dessert ever. McDoth is an amazing cook."

"That was straight from Batchelor's."

"They make cheesecake?"

"Yes. Yvan's famous for it. That one had all the creaminess I've learned to expect from their kitchen."

"I never thought they'd be famous for food. No wonder everyone wants to go there." Izzorah leaned back in his chair. "I probably ate way too much, but I was hungry."

"Same here. No worry. I'm sure we'll work it off." Luc's plate still held crumbles of crust from the cheesecake, along with a smear of cherries. "You know, since you and I are alone..." On impulse, he lifted the dessert plate and while holding Izzorah's gaze, gave it a long, slow lick.

Izzorah giggled, biting his lip. He picked up his plate as well and gave the plate a quick lick with the tip of his tongue.

Luc stroked his tongue across the plate, taking his time, letting his gaze tell Izzorah how delicious it tasted -- and felt.

Color rose in Izzorah's cheeks. His lashes lowered. He performed a far more thorough lick. He gave Luc a slow, sultry smile and then stroked his tongue along the edge of the plate. The soft wet barbs on his tongue glistened in the light.

Stifling an oath, Luc struggled for composure. The tightness in his throat had nothing to do with the surfeit of sugar.

More than love. Surrender.

He's the most powerful man in the Empire, and he's immortal. When his mortal lover walks away, the smart thing is to move on and forget. But how can he bear this loneliness, life after life?

Until he meets a young Kin male, a feline humanoid with perky cat's ears and eyes, an intense curiosity about the world, and the almost superpower ability to smell every subtle change of emotion, who loves him unconditionally. Might this be the lover he's hoped for? The one person to whom he can finally surrender his heart? But to bring this lover closer means revealing every damning secret, every twisted truth, every hidden lie. And the risk of losing him forever...

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

Tarthian Empire Companion #NonFiction #SciFi #AmWriting

Genre: Non-fiction, writer's guidebook

For Tarthian Fans

The Companion is a World Building Bible and Guide to Writing a Science Fiction Series.

Before writing the first book in the Tarthian Empire, I wrote ten thousand years of future history.

This book features that history, and spans Earth and its colonization of the galaxy, focusing on the big picture.

The Tarthian Empire Companion also provides advice and suggestions for creating a Science Fiction series and building worlds.

The companion provides organizational tips, links to marketing sites, groups supporting writers, science fiction groups, and more.

Illustrated in full color with original art created by Jamin Allen and Kayelle Allen.

What is a Story Bible?

A "story bible" is the book an author uses to keep all the details straight when writing a story or book. Different from a synopsis or outline, a story bible is a collection of details that bring a story to life. Is your hero left handed? What year did your king assume the throne? What is the name of your heroine's pet? What type of money does your character have in his pocket? All these details and more are kept in a story bible. This book includes my story bible -- and shows you how to create your own.

Qualified to Write a How-To

I have studied the craft and read classic Scifi since I was a child. In 2008 I won an honorary mention for the EPIC eBook Award for Fantasy, and in 2010 won the EPIC eBook Award for Science Fiction Romance. My books have won reviewer's awards and received multiple four- and five-star reviews. I have published numerous Science Fiction books, Science Fiction Romances, and have written within the genre since 2003.

Writing a History

Writers must understand the culture of the people about whom they write. What events drove their wars? Who won them? What made the peace so short, and the fighting so dire? The Tarthian Empire Companion suggests other questions to consider when writing a history for your world.
