Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. Shewill be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.
The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.
Inside Scoop: This book has a small taste of female/female fun—as well as scenes of abuse that are decidedly not fun.
A Romantica®sci-fi erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
The sound of someone calling her name pulled Saia from her dream. Opening her eyes, she scanned the empty room.
“Saia, are you up?”
She squinted through the darkness. The suns were still down. The night was quiet and still.
Who’s in my room? “Who’s there?” she called out.
“Saia. Saia! Wake up.”
JB? Is he here?
“Saia,” he called again.
She followed the noise to her com-link sitting on the small table by her bed. She held down the button so JB could hear her when she spoke. “Hello?”
She heard him let out a long sigh. “Hi.”
“Are you up?”
“I am now.”
“Oh, sorry. You were probably asleep. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Nice going, JB.”
She lay back and cradled the com-link in her hand. “No harm done. Why aren’t you asleep?”
“I tried, but I can’t.”
“Why not? If you’re having trouble sleeping you should try shikor. It has calming properties in it.”
“It’s not that. I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I don’t want to take anything that would make me stop thinking about you—ever.” His voice slurred with his words.
He was drunk, but she didn’t care. She couldn’t control the grin that stretched across her face. Or the way her heart fluttered at the very thought of him thinking about her. “You were thinking of me?”
“I was. I mean, I am. Were you thinking of me?”
“Really? I thought you would have been thinking about the females who were hanging on you at dinner.”
She remembered seeing the two humans fawning all over him. To his credit, she did see him trying to push them away. But as determined as they were, they didn’t seem to want to budge. She tried not to pay attention but couldn’t pull her eyes away.
“Those weren’t…I mean…I used to hang out with them, but that was before I met you.”
“And then what?”
“And then I haven’t been able to think about anyone else since.”
“I admit that I was thinking of you before I fell asleep.” She chewed on her bottom lip. Why had she confessed that?
“You were?” His voice was filled with hope and joy.
That’s why. “Yes.” She pulled a pillow over her face to muffle the happy yell that erupted from her.
“Meet me in the common room.”
She pulled the pillow away. “No! I can’t do that.”
“My brother might find out.”
“Oh yeah, right. Let me come to your room then.”
“Absolutely not. That would be even worse.”
“I’ll be like a stealth ninja. No one would even know that I’m there.”
“I don’t know what a ninja is, but I highly doubt that even that would elude the detection of Ship.”
“I forgot about him. How about the royal gardens? Meet me there.”
“He can go outside as well, although he really doesn’t like to.”
JB hiccupped. “But I want—I have to see you.”
“Well…he doesn’t go outdoors unless he has a reason. I’m sure he has better things to do than follow me around. If he does show up, you’d be able to see him.”
Although Ship’s species was thought to be invisible to the naked eye, it was discovered when Eva came to Sonis that humans could see him. He appeared as a purple haze to Eva. At first she’d thought there was something wrong with her eyesight. It had taken a while for her to realize it was Ship she was looking at and not some anomaly.
“Why do you want to meet with me so badly?”
“I just want to talk with you.”
“We are talking.”
“Okay, I admit. I want to feel you again.”
“JB!” Heat crept across her cheeks as she said his name.
“No, not that way. Your skin felt so soft, so perfect. I want to see if it was real or if I dreamt it.”
Saia sighed. “I can’t meet you anywhere this late. It’s not proper.”
“I understand. I’m drunk and I’m being too forward.”
She put a hand over her eyes. “But I can meet with you tomorrow after I visit Jess and Rasha’s new dwelling.” Oh Ancients.
“Yes!” She heard his yell peal through the link.
She grabbed and held the pillow tight to her chest. “Bye, JB. I’ll see you tomorrow.”
“Goodnight, beautiful Saia.”
