A Word or Two from Deja to You~
Life, that busy little word that has me rushing to and fro. Sometimes it’s nice just to have a chance to slow down and breathe.
This week read an excerpt from a piece I’m editing. I’m cutting left and right, bringing out the best in it. Along with my WIP, there’s an audible suggestion, blog hopping and pictures.
Thank you for reading!
Love to you all,
Peter paused before he placed his booted foot inside the car. Of course, as Korol, if he stopped, his second had no choice but to do so as well.
"Peter," Caleb growled. There was a bit of fire hidden in those blues. "We don't have time for this."
"Silence, Caleb." Immediately, Caleb submitted. It was there in the arch of his graceful tanned neck, the downward shift of his immense shoulders, the appealing scent that wafted from him, tangy and sweet. "He said I was pretty. How can I resist?"
And really, how could he? The man he wanted so badly to sink his fingers into called him pretty. Why not at least hear what more he had to say?
Peter watched as his pursuer closed in, his size formidable.
"Remi.” Peter enjoyed the silkiness of the voice, the way the sounds, the undulations teased along his cockhead awakening not just his libido but the creatures that hibernated within his soul.
His wolf listened a little more closely, a little more hungrily, almost whimpering for more. His nelapsi's eyeteeth lowered, eager to take a bite, a nibble, a sip.
The feeling played along the nerve endings of his flesh, made his blood thrum, the pulse causing his veins to quiver in anticipation. Peter's breath quickened as both entities within gathered strength, their awareness a tangible thing.
Kristoff's warnings in the past echoed in the background, but he chose to ignore them more in favor of savoring the racing heartbeat of the man before him, immersing himself in the heady scent of arousal that rose in the air.
"Peter," Caleb whispered, loud enough for only Peter to hear.
"Stand down, Caleb," Peter commanded softly. Stepping away from his second, he drew closer to Remi. He was delightful, this one. The color of his skin was rich, dark and held an appeal that Peter couldn't quite ignore.
He was warm and pulsed with an energy Peter imagined sampling. His blood. Would it be spicy? Would all of that spirit, that vitality flavor it, make him ache for more? The thought nearly made Peter stagger with a foreign excitement he rarely faced.
He wanted more.
Audiobook Fave for the Week!
One of the suggestions for a person who wants to read but simply lacks the time? Audiobooks! And, I have the perfect one for you!
My absolute favorite this week is:
Alien ‘n’ Outlaw by KC Burn
Narrated by Chad Maxwell
R'kos, son of the Ankylos Emperor, is expected to settle down. But he's much more attracted to human males than to his own species. Eager to explore his forbidden longings, he steals a ship and heads to Elora Ki to see if he can find the right human guy.
Darien robs the corrupt to give to those in need, but now he needs a ride off Elora Ki, stat. Pursued by drug lords, he accepts help from the amorous stranger who calls himself Ricky. As they fly together along Darien's route, their friendship quickly turns into passion.
But when Ricky is injured, Darien must contact the embassy to get his alien lover the medical care he needs. As Darien finds himself accused of kidnapping, and Ricky fears his family's disappointment, can the two protect their growing relationship? Or are their differences just too great?
KC Burn and Chad Maxwell make an awesome team. Loved this book for its narration, for the adventure, and the heat between R’kos and Darien. It’s certainly one of my go to re-listens and will be one of yours, too!
