Is it Sunday again? Yes, it is, and it’s time for another eight sentences from Terran, the second book in the Breeder sci-fi romance series. Thank goodness for semi colons and dashes. I was able to squeeze 12 sentences into eight! This scene is between Tara and her kidnapper following a little row…
“You said you did.”
“I didn’t mean it; I was mad.”
“I was too, but I do not say things I do not mean when I am angry.”
She twisted her mouth in disbelief.
He shook his head. “I cannot afford the luxury of inconsistency –my word is law. If I said something I did not mean, my false words would be obeyed.
Terran blurb – Buy Link
After fleeing heartache on Terra, Tara Diehl has adjusted to male-dominated Parseon better than most vendors until she is kidnapped by Alpha Marlix, a ruling commander. At first her tall, muscled abductor terrifies her, especially when he doesn’t hesitate to quell her struggle for freedom with some force. When her attempts to escape fail, she decides to seduce her way to freedom.
But out of seduction and subterfuge grow a true intimacy that cause Marlix and Tara to take action that drives Parseon to the brink of civil war, threatening not only their relationship, but also their lives.
Terran, the second book in the Breeder sci-fi series, is a “capture” romance involving a domineering but hunky alien, a female with a bad dye job and an even worse attitude. All Breeder books can be read as stand-alones.
