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.

His gaze felt like a long, hot, lingering sensual lick #MMromance #SciFi

Luc gripped Izzorah by the waist, backed him against the bar and held him immobile. "You're sure you want this?" Luc rocked against him.

"No. I'm sure I want you." Izzorah clutched Luc's open collar, pulling him closer. He ground himself against Luc, eliciting a soft groan. "Please."

He put his mouth next to Izzorah's. "Look at me."

When his young lover obeyed, the impact of his deep emerald gaze felt like one long... hot... lingering... sensual lick.

Surrender Love

An Immortal Alpha Male / Submissive Alien MM Science Fiction Romance Novel

With his heart freshly broken, does he dare to love again?

Luc is a 12,000-year-old immortal alpha male, and the most powerful man in an intergalactic empire of 22 planets. When his mortal lover walks away, the smart thing is to move on and forget, but how can he bear his loneliness, life after life?

When Izzorah landed on Tarth five years ago, he'd been nothing but a feline-humanoid alien from the backwoods of a distant world, but he made himself into a rock star. When Luc rescues Izzy from a terrible situation, the adorable Kin hero, who has an almost superpower ability to smell every subtle change of emotion, falls for the heartbroken leader.

This might be the soulmate Luc has hoped for. The one person to whom he can surrender his heart. But to bring his beloved closer means revealing every damning secret, every twisted truth, and every hidden lie.

Surrender Love is a heart-melting Sci-Fi Romance novel sure to induce an insatiable desire for sequels, which fortunately, are on their way.

Surrender Love sweetly addicts the senses. The book's heroes generate plenty of steam, without explicit content.
