"Look what I bought," women said of him #SciFi #Romance

From For Women Only

In this scene from For Women Only, Khyff awakens beside Mehfawni, the feline-humanoid Kin ambassador to the Tarthian Empire. He'd been ordered to seduce her, part of a complicated ploy by the Empress, who wants to remove Mehfawni from the Kin line of succession.
The seduction took no time on Khyff's part. The moment Mehfawni saw the gorgeous blond and blue-eyed human, she pursued him.

Khyff has always been a plaything for women to enjoy, never a person to get to know. Until he meets Fawni.

Khyff drifted off to sleep, more comfortable than he could remember being in years and woke sometime later to the feel of a hand sliding down his abs and across his belly. He opened his eyes.

"Look what I bought," women said of him #SciFi #RomanceWhen she noticed he was watching her, mild surprise widened Mehfawni's big golden eyes with their jade green flecks. "Oh, you're awake."
"Mmm."
"I hope I didn't wake you. You looked..." She sighed. "I wanted to touch you. You're so smooth."
"It's okay. You can touch me any time you like." He stretched. It felt good to be rested. No light showed at the windows. "What time is it?"
She shrugged. "I pay no attention to such things. Local time. Tradestandard time. Time zones. Time to hold council. Time to sleep." She hooked her claws into the air, a picture of frustration. "My staff open doors and pour wine and feed me. They lay out my clothes and draw my bath. All the rest of my life is work." She dragged the tips of her claws down his body.
Khyff's skin jumped, still hypersensitive after their riotous lovemaking.
"This--" she stroked his belly "--is outside time. This is my time. I will not look at clocks while I'm with you."
Warmth swept over him that had nothing to do with sex. He turned the feeling over in his mind, unsure what to make of it, and held out his arms.
She moved into his embrace, body flush against his at leg and groin, skin pressed against his. She lay half atop him, leaning a bit to one side, propped on one elbow.
"Are you hungry, Khyff?"
He hadn't noticed until she asked. "Starving. I have plenty of food in the kitchen. What would you like?"

"Besides you?"
"You can have me, too."
She tapped his nose and sat up. "I want to take you out to dinner. In Tarth City, surely there is always food ready somewhere."
"I know plenty of places." They had told him to prepare to be spoiled. Kin females were accustomed to being in charge. Khyff hadn't mentioned he was used to women paying his way. They liked to flaunt him to their friends and display him like a new charm on their wrist bracelets. Look what I bought.
"Somewhere quiet." Mehfawni folded her legs, elbows on her knees. "I don't wish women to gawk at you when you're with me."


Khyff's secret truth could devastate her family and make her an outcast. She should shun this human, return to her own people and forget him. Yet how can she let him suffer in the darkness that binds his heart?

His secret truth is her people's darkest lie...

A pre-release peek at Surrender Love

Breakfast with Luc

In this scene from Surrender Love, Izzorah is having breakfast with his human lover, Luc Saint-Cyr. This is Luc and Izzorah's first morning together as lovers.

Aware the man will be gone part of the day, Izzorah asks if there is any way he can help.

Excerpt Surrender Love

A *hot* breakfast with Luc #Excerpt Surrender Love #SciFi #MMromance #MFRWhooksA slow smile crossed Luc's face. "I may need a long, hot, sudsy shower and then help getting dry afterward."

Izzorah's throat tightened. A tender ache had him squirming in his seat. He offered a not-so-innocent smile. "We had that kind of shower before breakfast."

"Yes, we did." The man trailed a fingertip farther up Izzorah's arm, causing him to flush with heat. "But between now and then, I intend to work up a sweat. I'm going to need another one."

Izzorah squirmed again, spreading his legs farther apart.

"And then I'll need help to dress. Tuxedo affair. I'll teach you how to fasten everything. It's complicated. We may have to take everything off and put it back on a few times so you can practice."

They rose together and leaned across the table. Izzorah gripped Luc's robe to pull him close, deepening their kiss. The table dug into his thighs.

McDoth's return with milk and coffee broke them apart.

Izzorah felt his cheeks flame.

Luc reseated himself, a self-satisfied smile on his gorgeous face.

Biting into his lower lip, Izzorah resisted the urge to cast breakfast aside and feast on Luc instead.

The android poured more coffee and left.

The size of Luc's dark hands as they wrapped the white mug brought back memories of the night before. Those hands had held him, turned him, lifted him. Loved him. Izzorah had given himself over in complete trust. He'd rested in Luc's strong arms. Those loving hands had bathed him, soaped his chest and shampooed his hair. Those same hands had dried his skin and hair, lifting strands with patient fingers as he blew it dry.

Izzorah swallowed, his throat tight.

Whinbrice, Skovron Stadium and Fine Wine

Whinbrice, a bright blue world with fertile oceans and landmasses.

The Skovron stadium opened in Birit 4664, only days before it hosted Wind and Thunder's Claw Rock Tour. Over sixty-four thousand people attended. The stadium's unusual spired arches permit outdoor seating in good weather, but a weather-resistant force field can generate within four seconds of a drop of rain. The underside of the arches can also render holographic images, permitting all seats to have an unobstructed view of the stage.

This cutaway view shows the Skovron Stadium after its renovation by Meesht Tormah Construction, a subsidiary of Tyran Motors. To get an accurate picture of the stadium's size, note the human figure above the letter "N" in Skovron. (Click to view full size)

Wind and Thunder's opening number using the stadium's holosystem to create life-like clouds and lightning flashes. When the group came on stage, lightning appeared to arc over their bodies. One by one, they thrust their hands toward different parts of the stadium and the holosystem cast the "lightning" over the audience. The effect was so realistic, hundreds of attendees ran for the exits. Paramedics treated several for panic attacks. The effect was dropped for the second show.

During that program, lead singer Gelina Fasra's voice rose so high that a window in the control panel shattered. The band's security company, For Women Only, immediately shut down the show and hunted for snipers.

The crystal-based ground on one continent produces fine wines that are sold empire wide. Luc Saint-Cyr owns a large vineyard there. Skovron burgundy is among the finest in the empire.

Tyris, Tyran Homeworld

Enormous solar flares have upset the ecosystem near the equator, and within the past fifteen years, severe earthquakes have devastated parts of the southern hemisphere. In 4657 tradestandard, a massive quake displaced millions of Tyrans and inspired an empire-wide adoption of orphaned children. Even the elitist and separatist Kin took in a few hundred youngsters.

Tyris, Tyran Homeworld

The Tyran are goat-like humanoids hooves and horns

Masters of technology, the Tyrans designed their homeworld as a showcase of their brilliance. Impossibly delicate structures rise into the atmosphere. Architecture is an art form used to express their genius.

The Tyran are goat-like humanoids with hooves and horns. Most horns turn upward and/or outward, but a rare few curl backward or down.

Tyran technology has long harnessed anti-gravity. However, recent studies have hinted that its use may be affecting their sun. In the last fifteen years, it has changed from a benevolent provider of heat and light to an unpredictable tyrant.

Both genders live in clutches of fifteen to twenty centered around work. Although close bonds often form between sexual partners, relationships are far from monogamous, and cohabitation of genders purely for sexual purposes is rare in the extreme. Reproduction is neither sought nor avoided.

Sports of all types interest them, and clutches made of both genders form to enjoy them. From age two, male children live in all male clutches, females in female, until they turn seven, at which time a Tyran is considered adult. Five Tyran years equal one Tradestandard year, making the Tyran age of consent thirty-five tradestandard years. Life span is over one hundred forty tradestandard years.

Art varies from painting and sculpture to high tech; their music takes all forms. One of their religions consists merely of passing newborns through the "Gates of Life. "

Trien, Home of the FIST

The FIST, the Facility for Imperial Ships and Transports is a group of stations orbiting Trien, the nearest planet to the capitol of the empire, Tarth.

Ships are modular in construction to save time when being built and during repairs.

Trien, Home of the FIST

In wartime, a damaged section of a ship can be jettisoned. The large ship in the background is a Destroyer. Three of these accompany Her Majesty's flagship, the Imperial Armada Ship (IAS) Usurper.

The FIST, Facility for Imperial Ships and Transports

In the foreground, a carrier is near completion. As an indication of relative size of the two ships, a carrier holds twenty squadrons of fifteen to twenty fighters each, plus ship's company, and all support staff for the squadrons. The total crew complement is nearly six thousand people.

There is another station visible in the deep background on the other side of Trien and its moons. Many stations make up the FIST.

The Tarthian Tour Company reminds you it is UNLAWFUL to take holographic or flat images of the FIST. Limited quantities of Armada approved images are available in the gift shop.

Tarth, All Roads Lead Home

Tarth, the empire's capitol, is a glittering jewel in space. Its networks of shields create harmonics of varied frequencies. These alter the wavelengths of color, turning the rich forests, rivers, and cities into streams of bright greens, vibrant golds, and shining silver. Once inside the external shields around the planet, the appearance returns to normal blues, greens, and browns.

Tarth, All Roads Lead Home

Tarth without shielding(Planet shown without shielding)

Security is high on Tarth, and ships entering the guarded space are subject to boarding and destruction without proper passcodes.

Tarth City (image below, showing a view of the Nizamrak Building) numbers 40 million people divided into 153 districts averaging 260,000 residents each. A twelve-block-wide park bisects the entire city, providing greenspace and recreation. The transportation system is the most advanced in the empire, and hustles commuters on round-the-clock shifts throughout the city. Ground traffic is permitted only with special license and is granted only for specified times of the day.

Nizamrak Building, Tarth City (art by Jamin Allen)

Conqueror's Palace on Tarth

The Conqueror's Palace on Tarth is hewn from white marble imported from Sanity III. Since the planet was taken apart and used for terraforming resource material, the marble is irreplaceable. Note the size of the guards in comparison to the wall. The palace is visible from high orbit and dominates the city skyline. Only a handful of buildings are taller, including the Nizamrak Building.

For size, note the guards in the foreground.

As an example of the city's advanced transportation and public event capabilities, Destine Pietan Stadium can hold up to 65,000 people, and has a ticketing, entry and egress system which accommodates up to three shows daily. There are never lines, waiting, or crushing crowds. Tarth City is the showcase of the empire.
