Excerpt from For Women Only

The Antonello Brothers Science Fiction Romance series is Sci Fi from the sweeter side of the galaxy.
He didn't expect an alien to have such honor. He didn't expect to trust her. And he didn't expect to fall in love...


He didn't expect an alien to have such honor. He didn't expect to trust her. And he didn't expect to fall in love...Khyff snuggled deeper into the pillows. The slick coolness of the sheets soothed his skin. The quiet lulled him. "So nice to be home."

A steady thrumming sound vibrated through the pillows.

Khyff frowned, not opening his eyes. "What the--"

Something fuzzy laid itself across his mouth. He grabbed it with one hand, felt its length. Furry. Long. Skinny. This feels like a tail.

"Tail?" He opened his eyes.

A gray tabby cat meowed in his face.

"Aaack!" Khyff tumbled off the bed in the opposite direction and got to his feet.

The cat arched its back and hissed.

Khyff scrambled away backward. "Shoo! Go away! Shoo!" He made motions with both hands.

The cat jumped off the bed and padded, tail high and twitching, toward the partially open door. It paused and looked back before exiting.

Khyff rubbed his face. How'd a cat get in here? He went into the bathroom. The items on the shelf over the toilet looked out of place. Is this Senth and NarrAy's bathroom? Since when does mine have bath oil, perfume, and--he leaned closer--feminine hygiene products?

"This room's pink. I don't have a pink room in my apartment." Or a round shower stall and twin sinks. Or pink soaps shaped like cats. Cats? I hate cats. He gulped. "Where am I?"

His nudity suddenly became an issue. He grabbed a fluffy pink towel off the bar and wrapped it around his waist before peeking into the bedroom. Still alone. Good.

His denim pants lay folded on a chair with his slip-on shoes beneath it. No socks or underwear. He dressed. No shirt in sight. Which one was I wearing?

Pink flowers decorated the covers on the bed. The dresser top held a silver brush and mirror set.

"I went home with some woman last night?" He shoved a hand through his hair. "Smackers, I must have been sotted. How'd I even let her touch me?"

For Women Only is available exclusively on Amazon and is free on Kindle Unlimited.

Just as he begins a new life safe from the anguish of his past, a young security chief must return to a profession he vowed never to practice again. To save his brother's life and appease the all-powerful Empress, Khyff must seduce and then betray an alien ambassador. Her people devastated his family. Hatred for the feline aliens burns within him, but unless Khyff can learn to embrace the past, face the demons he swore he'd forget, and find a way to forgive, his brother will die. Khyff will lose the honorable and gentle alien female he has come to love and trust -- and the Empress will see to it that no one in his family will ever be safe again.
He didn't expect an alien to have such honor. He didn't expect to trust her. And he didn't expect to fall in love...

On the verge of freeing his brother from a cruel master, Senth, an all party-fun-and-games thief, must take on the hardest assignment of his life: stealing from the Empress.

To make matters worse, he has no choice about working with a by-the-book rebel captain, a genetically advanced woman whose addictive pheromones could enhance his mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

When the unthinkable happens and the Empress kidnaps his brother, Senth must put aside his love of play and buckle down or his brother will end up with a far worse master, Senth will be guilty of treason, and he'll lose the love of his life -- forever.

When a playful half-cat thief meets an enhanced-human by-the-book captain, do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Excerpt from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure

A hovercar and driver met them at the curb, and the smooth trip along Conqueror's March Boulevard brought them down through Tarth City Park, past the massive Destine Pietan Stadium, and into the Imperial Business District. They drove into the shadow of the Nizamrak Building, which rose above the city like a dark sentinel.

Senth craned his neck looking up as they passed it, and then sat back, scowling.

Broxus put down his reader. "Problem?"

Brushing off his cloak, Senth shook his head.

NarrAy observed the interchange without comment, recalling that Senth's daddy dearest owned the building.

Once they reached the Royal District, the car pulled up to the front of the luxurious Royal Arms Hotel. Shaped like a giant arrow being driven into the ground, it displayed Tyran engineering at its finest. Like their suite on the ship, the empire-class suite at the top sported a common living area and four bedrooms with private baths.

NarrAy's corner room had a breathtaking view of vast Tarth City, showcase of the empire. Impossibly tall spires drove through the clouds. Steady shuttle traffic climbed into the sky to the west, near the starport. The wide swath of Tarth City Park divided the metropolis in half all the way to the horizon, and the Cyr de Typhin River meandered through the center, its bright blue water glinting in the sun.

She directed her bagbot to its place against the wall. While it deployed into closet mode, she went back to the common area and waited in a wingback chair for the others.

A few minutes later, a sock-footed Senth went sliding past her on the dark wood floor. Arms out for balance and holding a shoe in each hand, he slammed up against the wall and laughed.

He tossed the shoes on the floor and shoved his feet into them before launching himself across the back of the burgundy leather sofa. And kept going, sliding right off its slick surface and onto the floor.

Senth jumped to his feet and dusted himself off, noticed her, and turned bright red. "I...um...I was getting..." He gestured toward his room and hit the large glass lamp next to him. Senth made a grab for it, righted the shade, and set the lamp back on the table. He stepped back and stumbled over a potted palm. He danced sideways, tripping over his own feet.

Brox entered, and Senth ran right into him. Brox steadied him.

"Sorry!" Senth jerked back.

NarrAy chewed the inside of her cheek, fighting not to laugh.

Her security lieutenant brushed himself off. "You don't have much Kin blood, do you?"

"What?" Senth flipped back his long hair. "I'm half Kin."

Brox rubbed his chin. "Most Kin are more -- graceful."

A flush of color darkened Senth's cheeks.

NarrAy covered her mouth, all but choking.

Encie popped into the room, a weapon out as she checked it. "Everybody ready?"

"I'll get my cloak." Senth fled toward his room.

You robots can keep your shopping pleasure, thank you #SciFi #MFRWhooks

 

In this scene from For Women Only, Khyff and Mehfawni have arrived at the largest shopping mall in the empire.

Mehfawni is a Kin female and a warrior, and it's natural for her to take charge. When they are greeted by a robotic directory system, she makes a quick decision.

 But then reveals something she had not intended...


 

"Thank you for visiting Tarth City Mall," the robot crooned. "Your shopping pleasure is our only business. How may I increase your shopping pleasure?"

"I think we'll walk around." Mehfawni slipped her hand into Khyff's and turned away. "If we get lost, we'll come back."

Just past the directory was a kiosk labeled "Honey And Leather." Two human males, an Androg, two human females, and a young Tyran male were fastened to it by thin leashes attached to their wrists.

They must be slakes. She couldn't help but stare. None of them looked like whores, but the kiosk signs clearly stated their prices. A male turned and ogled Mehfawni, and the females stared at Khyff in frank appreciation. So did the Androg.

Her mind balked at the idea of Khyff being sold like that. His records said he'd "worked the streets" when he was fifteen, but by the time he'd been sixteen, he'd been "on call". They'd called it "marketing" him--selling his services to private individuals who could afford the finest.

Talk about shopping pleasure... She shuddered.

The thought of other females using Khyff made her jaws clamp tighter. How can I be jealous of something that happened to him years ago? Yet there the emotion was, in all its raw and angry power. If he'd been Kin, he'd have smelled it on her by now.

She slid the tips of her fingers into one of Khyff's rear pockets in a possessive gesture meant to discourage the slakes, who were still eyeing him. It didn't work.

"Let's go over there." She pointed off in another direction.

"Sure, Fawni. What do you want to see?"

She didn't want him thinking she was trying to buy him the way his clients had, but she still wanted to show others he was hers. An idea came to her, and she slid her tongue across her fangs. "What kind of jewelry shops do they have, t'hahr?"

His eyes crinkled at the corners. "What does t'hahr mean?"

"Oh, um..." The words had slipped out, but they were true. She rose on tiptoe and kissed him on the cheek. "T'hahr is a love word in my language. It's Felis for my heart."

He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy #SciFi #Romance #MFRWauthor

In this scene from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, NarrAy Jorlan has just met 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.

Do Opposites Attract?

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 out 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 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 an offhand compliment?
