Luc Saint-Cyr, character in books by Kayelle Allen.

Thank you!

You helped Ring of the Dragon reach #94 in the top 100 on Amazon. Considering there are millions of books on that site, this is amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Down a little ways, you'll find 2 gifts from Stormsinger and me! I hope you enjoy them.

Below, left - the product information for the book from its page on Amazon. The rankings are at the bottom. #94 is a huge impact. I'm super excited. I did a little happy dance right here in my office when I saw it.

Below right - I put Surrender Love (Dragon's prequel) up for free Apr 15-16, and it hit #2 on the free list in more than one category. Nice thing is, Wulf (which is permafree) was right there with it at #4. Having 3 books in the top 100 on Amazon at the same time is a dream come true. Thank you so much for helping me accomplish that!

Ring of the Dragon by Kayelle Allen

Luc, whose immortal name is Cyken, has just laid down the law to Pietas -- the immortal king himself. Brazen and bold, but Luc wants his freedom and he fears Pietas will never let him have it. Now he's dealing with the king's reaction.

"How dare you come in here and--"

"Please." Cyken lifted both hands. "I didn't come here to pick a fight."

"A little late for that."

"All I wanted was for you to acknowledge the truth. You know that."

Pietas laid a hand over his torn heart. "No, here's what I know. You think me unworthy. You suckered me into thinking you cared about me. You touched me when you knew I longed for you. You used my love for you to protect the one who stole you from me. You--" He turned away. "You violated every trust I ever put in you. That's what I know."

A blockade of silence between them filled the room.

Cyken came up close behind him and set one hand on Pietas's shoulder.

"No." He turned, backed away from the man's warmth. "Do not touch me. Don't you ever touch me again."

"My king." Cyken performed a Sempervian salute. "I have served you for too many centuries for you to doubt my loyalty. All I wanted was for you to admit Izzorah is immortal. One of us. You told me you created him with your own hands. I came here because I needed you to admit there's no sense in killing him. I want you to tell the whole truth about that."

Cyken wanted truth? Here was truth.

Pietas would stab a blade deep into the gut of the man who'd stolen Cyken's heart. Twist it. Tear him apart. Rip off Izzorah's head and destroy him so completely he could never resurrect.

How could Pietas have been so foolish? Why had he held onto hope he could win Cyken back? Why had he longed for Cyken to see the man Pietas truly was? The man who loved him beyond all reason. The man who was terrified of losing him.

Because facing eternity without Cyken at his side...

Pietas turned away, arms crossed, head down.

Surrender Love #1 in the Antonello Brothers: Immortal series  #PietasFans #SciFi

Surrender Love is free April 15-16, 2021

Amazon worldwide https://books2read.com/surrender-love-immortal

In this scene, Izzorah has had a short session with Nanchonta, a friend of Luc's and a doctor. Unknown to Izzorah, Chon is also immortal and has the gift of healing. Chon has focused on vision so far, which Izzorah doesn't want to admit is extremely poor to Luc.

When Izzorah gets in the shower, Luc enters, and for the first time, Izzy can see him at a distance.

 

Izzorah blinked twice, rubbed his eyes and blinked again. He could see as clearly as if he were next to the sink. Unwilling to miss anything, he studied the room.

"Rah, you're scaring me."

He could see everything. He met Luc's gaze and started laughing, struck by the irony of his situation. His heart was ready to give out and his eyes started working. How screwed up was that?

Nanchonta had sworn to keep his blindness a secret but had insisted on examining his eyes. Izzorah had spent so long looking into the man's eyes he'd gotten lost in their pale depths. Had Nanchonta done this? How long would it last? Giggles bubbled out of Izzorah and he clapped a hand over his mouth.

"Oh, Rah, you're freezing. Let's get you back into the water."

Izzorah let Luc maneuver him into the shower and kept laughing until tears ran down his cheeks.

Luc turned on other controls and soothing, warm water sprayed from three sides of the shower stall, putting them in the middle of a mist. The water sparkled in the air, catching the light and making arcs of color.

"Oh!" Water beaded on Izzorah's hands, glistened on his golden skin. It shone on Luc's dark skin like diamonds and Izzorah spread his hands across the man's chest. "Beautiful. So many colors."

"Did Nanchonta drug you?" Luc captured Izzorah's face and squinted at him. Even in the midst of so much water, Luc's worry-scent flooded the chamber.

"I'm fine. I... So many colors in the mist. Is this what rainbows look like?"

The water cut off. Luc pushed the door open. "Come on. Let's get you into bed."

"But--" Izzorah let Luc sweep him along. "It's pretty. I see rainbows."

"I'll kill Nanchonta. I told him no drugs!" Luc toweled Izzorah down, wrapped him in a bath sheet, grabbed one for himself and led him to the bed. He pulled down the covers. "Get in."

Izzorah slid into the bed, reached up and probed the skin on Luc's arm. "You're so many colors. You're darker here, on your elbow. And light up here." He skimmed his fingers across Luc's shoulder.

Luc fumbled with a device on the nightstand. "McDoth! Get hold of Nanchonta and get him back here on the double! And hurry!"

Izzorah gripped his arm. "Stay with me, Luc."

"I'm not leaving you for a second." Luc swore in the Kin language, then switched to vaguely Tyran-sounding words and then a language Izzorah hadn't heard before.

"Luc?"

"Yes?" Luc drew Izzorah's hand up to his mouth and kissed his palm.

"Are you making up cuss words? I haven't heard any of the words you're saying before, but I can tell you're mad."

Luc laid Izzorah's hand against his own cheek and kissed the palm. Tears sparkled on his lashes. "I'm worried about you. Did Nanchonta give you drugs?"

"No, he laid his hands on my shoulders and chest. The way he did Soli. It was amazing. I wish you'd been there. Nanchonta picked Soli up and held him, little head in his palm and his body along one arm. They stared at one another for a long time. Soli didn't cry even once. It was like he knew we were there to help him. After a bit, Soli closed his eyes and went to sleep and when we held him, he felt normal. No fever. Nanchonta gave them some drops and said Soli'd be fine in a day or two. He's magic, Luc. He made it--"

The door burst open and Nanchonta charged into the room. "What's wrong?"

He was skittish as a horse with a new saddle #Excerpt Ring of the Dragon #PNR #Dragons #SciFi

This scene from Ring of the Dragon features Pietas and Dark Hair, the Kin female who is helping him hunt for a specific horse (hynder). They have traipsed across a huge portion of the world, and have finally found a human who knows where the horse is. In addition, the human has invited them to hitch a ride on his transport and promised to give them a lift as far north as the Ruh River the next morning. Pietas has a moment alone with Dark Hair, who understands his claustrophobia and the reason for it. All in all, things are starting to look up. For Pietas, that usually means they are about to fall apart.

Dark Hair patted Pietas on the shoulder. "You come. I scrub back."

The head had white walls but no windows. Not dark, but so closed Pietas could not force himself to enter. The shower stall also housed the toilet and sink. The floor sloped toward a central drain. A vertical life-pod. Worse than prison. In prison, you could pace.

Dark Hair edged around him and turned on the water. "Look. Big towel. You like this, I know. Soft." She stuck one hand under the water. "See? Is hot water. You come." She beckoned. "I help you. Stay with you."

Pietas took a step back.

"I stay here." She held out her hands. "You come. Feel better, you get clean."

With his gaze locked on hers, taking one halting step after the other, Pietas crossed to her.

Dark Hair took his hands and smiled up at him. "You like hynder get new saddle. Is okay. Saddle not bad. I promise." She stood on tiptoe and kissed him.

With her aid, he stripped and she placed their clothes outside the door for Mase to collect.

Pietas stepped under the steaming water. Closing his eyes, he let the water pour over his head and down onto his shoulders. The tension of the day eased. With his eyes closed, he could picture himself aboard his ship, in his bathing chamber. Safe. Not locked in. Free.

He let out a long sigh. "I needed this. Thanks."

"Will like clean clothes."

"Mmm."

"He very nice."

"Maybe."

Dark Hair moved Pietas's hair over one shoulder. She ran both hands across his back, making circles as she bathed him. "You not like Mase?"

"I don't know him. I've been lied to, fired upon, stolen from, and otherwise abused too many times to trust without proof."

"Face me."

"Hmm?" He turned to find Dark Hair standing on a stool. He had to tilt back his head to meet her gaze. "Why?"

"Close eyes. I wash face."

When he had, she washed from his brow to his chin. "You rinse."

He stuck his face under the water, wiped it with one hand. "Thank you."

"Turn around again, I wash hair." She poured shampoo into one hand.

Pietas turned his back, and angled the spray away from his face. "If you're trying to make up for robbing me, it's working."

She gave a low purr. "Good." Her claws on his scalp sent shivers down his arms.

After the shampoo, she soaped his chest, and when he'd rinsed, curled her fingers into his hair. With her standing above him, he had to tip back his head to accept her kiss. How he'd love to lift her into his arms, press her against the wall and have her heat surround him.

Dark Hair pulled back. "Have idea."

She directed him to sit atop the closed toilet seat, and faced him. "You hold here." She placed his hands on her waist. With the water cascading over them, she lowered herself onto his lap.

Pietas gasped.

She halted. "This cause pain?"

"Pain?" He pressed his brow against hers. "What pain?" He pulled her down to him and parted his lips for her kiss.
