Surrender Love - Antonello Brothers: Immortal

More than love. Surrender.

Luc is 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 Izzorah, an adorable Kin male, a sweet yet fierce youth 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. This might be the soulmate Luc's 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. And once he does, Luc might risk losing him forever...

When Cyken falls in love with another and wants to seal the relationship in an eternal bond, Pietas takes on a quest, traveling to a dangerous world where he has no power or significance, seeking an item Cyken desires.

If he succeeds, it might bring Cyken back. Or drive him even closer to his new love.

He must pass a test designed by the immortal king to reveal gifts and weaknesses.

Pass and he's accepted into a warrior society he wants no part of. Fail and he's cast out, away from the man he loves.

As if that's not bad enough, his lover is also the king's ex, and the king refuses to part with anything--or anyone--he loves.

Fair test? Not in this immortal lifetime...

A Stolen Heart - Antonello Brothers

When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves' Guild he once led.

Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc's immortal ex--the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes. For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he'll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he's coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves' Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child's training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. He must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart...

Or will he end up at the mercy of her pleasure forever...

Just as Khyff begins a new life safe from the anguish of his past, a threat against his brother forces Khyff back into a profession he vowed never to practice again.

Hatred for the 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.

He didn't expect an alien to have such honor.

He didn't expect to trust her.

He didn't expect to fall in love.

And he didn't expect to reveal his betrayal...

Lights Out by Kayelle Allen

Origin of Pietas: Bringer of Chaos

Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You'll live forever, they said. You'll save mankind, they said. They didn't say that to do it, first he had to die.

When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps.

Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he's assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.

He's facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.

Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed "Lights Out." No, there's more to this than he can see.

To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time--somehow--find a way to keep himself alive...

Wulf Gabriel longs for freedom. A superstar in the Tarthian Empire, he is bound by an unscrupulous agent to a restrictive contract. With his career threatened and his life at risk, Wulf must trust the one man he swore would never again control him — Luc Saint-Cyr, the Harbinger.

For the Harbinger, saving Wulf is a matter of asserting his will. The enigmatic Luc’s legendary power makes him the most feared man in the empire. But to win Wulf’s heart, Luc will have to risk baring his own.

Wulf Excerpt

In this scene, Luc Saint-Cyr is working at his desk when his assistant interrupts him.

“Excuse me, sir.”

His concentration broken for the fifth time in as many minutes, Luc Saint-Cyr tossed aside his reading and leaned back in his desk chair. “Now what?”

The sixth person he’d hired this month to replace his former assistant stepped all the way inside, shut the door quietly, and approached his desk.

“I’m very sorry, sir. I know you didn’t want to be disturbed for the next hour, but–”

He held up a hand to stop further apology. “What is it, Ms. Mead?”

“The gentleman on the holophone says it’s urgent.”

“They all say that.”

“Sir, I know that. I’m a professional, but this –”

“Never mind.” He pinched the bridge of his nose. “Who is it and what’s so urgent?”

“All he would say was that his name was Wulf Gabriel and that–”

“What!” Luc shot to his feet, making the woman gasp, and sending his chair flying backward into the credenza. Books on its top tumbled to the floor. “Why didn’t you say so?” He made shooing motions at the startled woman. “Put him through immediately.”

Eyeing him as if he were some wild animal, Ms. Mead edged out the door and snapped it shut behind her.

Once alone, Luc opened a desk drawer and swept everything on his desk into it. He stepped one foot into the adjoining bathroom, grabbed a brush, and dragged it through his short hair. A quick feel of his chin told him he didn’t need a shave yet.

He slipped back into his office, seated himself at the desk, and waited for the image to glow into existence. Wonder what he’ll look like? Stupid question, old boy. You see him every day on Imperinet. He’s on half the dentist ads in the empire, and most of the clothing commercials.

Luc imagined the classic beauty of Wulf’s face, the strength of his jaw, the warm whiskey brown of his eyes. On his dresser at home was a picture of himself with Wulf and his parents, taken days before Thomas Gabriel’s death. Before all their lives had unraveled. Before he’d–
Focus.

Luc unclenched his fists and flattened his hands on the desk. Still no holo-image. The heap of untidy books on the floor drew his attention, but judging by the angle holopics usually took, Wulf wouldn’t see them. How would it appear if the call started and he was on his knees on the floor with his ass in the air? Still… Luc rolled his chair back and pushed them out of sight with his foot.

No image yet.

Luc started to press the button on his desk to call Ms. Mead, but hovered one finger above it. What if she was putting Wulf through and mangled the connection because he distracted her?

He folded his hands again, and waited. On the floor by the right front leg of the credenza lay another book. He scooted his chair over and pushed at it with his foot, but it wedged itself between the legs and wouldn’t budge.

The indicator on his desk still showed no sign of a call.

He loosened his collar, flicked at a speck of dust on the desk, and folded his hands once more. He rolled his thumbs around and around each other. He tightened his collar back up. Muttering curses, he got down on the floor and straightened the damned books, dusted himself off and sat back down.

The door opened and Ms. Mead crept far enough inside to shut it behind her. Head down, hands clutched in front of her, she wet her lips.

Luc stood and went around the desk. “You lost him! Don’t tell me you lost him!”

“No, sir.” Ms. Mead peeked up as he approached. “He told me to forget it. He said he’d changed his mind and it wasn’t important.”

Wasn’t important… Brought up short by those words, Luc went so still the motes of dust in the air came into perfect clarity. As if the universe had suffered as harsh a blow as his heart. The first contact he’d had with Wulf in twenty years and it wasn’t important.

He turned his back, shoulders rigid, jaw tight. “Did he say he’d call back?”

Um, he…”

His breath felt shallow and too, too fast. He stopped himself from turning his head. “Go on, Ms. Mead.”

She cleared her throat. “No, sir. The call came in on a private channel. I couldn’t get a number to return it. I asked, but he wouldn’t give me one. I was trying to track it when I realized I should let you know what happened. I’m sorry, sir.”

He jammed his tongue against his teeth. Hands clenched at his sides, Luc turned his face enough to show he listened.

“Sir, I’ll make sure he goes straight through if–I mean, when he calls back. Is there anyone else I should know about?”

You mean is there anyone else who could tear apart my life just by dropping a call? Not trusting his voice, he shook his head.

Behind him, the door opened, clicked shut. Footsteps receded. No outside noise intruded. The lonely silence of the oversized room rang in his ears like a death scream.

Luc staggered the ten steps to the windows overlooking Tarth City Park. Sunlight’s radiant caress warmed and soothed his skin.

If only it could reach his heart.

Focus, Luc. Dwell here, not in the past. Let it go. Let it go.

Forty-one stories below lay the verdant trees of the park, the blue and silver flash of Typhin River ribboning its way through open grass in the center. Destine Pietan Stadium’s dome shone holy-white in the glaring sun. Columns of soaring buildings wrapped along the curved route of the Stadium Loop edging the park.

That’s it. Root yourself in the here and now. Yesterday’s gone. Tomorrow never comes. Not for you.

Pietas ap Lorectic was introduced in the book For Women Only. He’s a physically beautiful immortal male who appears young, despite being over twelve thousand years old. He and his twin sister were the only naturally conceived and born Ultras.

The name Pietas comes from the word “pieta“, meaning “representation.” A famous statue by Michelangelo called “The Pieta” represents a dramatic event in Christendom. Another word for “pieta” is “creation.” Pietas was considered (at his birth to two supposedly infertile immortals) to be the highest creation, the epitome of success. His mother, Helia hid her pregnancy from all but a close circle of others, fearful of what might happen if humans discovered she was fertile.

Unknown to Helia, she carried twins. A female child was delivered only minutes after Pietas, and she was considered a delight, and a good omen. She was named Dessy from the root word decet (dess-say) meaning good or proper. We know her today as Empress Rheyn Destoiya, or the Conqueror. She detests being called Dessy. Pietas makes a point of calling her that to irritate her.

Pietas and Dessy’s father is Mahikos. Those who’ve read Surrender Love had an opportunity to meet him. Helia will appear in an upcoming book.

Other names for Pietas in human history are Marauder, Impaler, Hammer of God, Soul Ripper, Destroyer of Worlds, Slayer of Innocents, and Hound of Hell. He is mentioned in the Tales of the Chosen series, and Surrender Love. There is a love-hate relationship between Pietas and Luc Saint-Cyr, whom Pietas insists on calling by his Sempervian name, Cyken.
