Parseon physicians ought to receive hazard pay when dealing with an Alpha. 🙂 Welcome to my weekly excerpt. I unable to visit other blogs this weekend, so I am not participating in the Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors hops, but that allows me to present a snippet longer than eight sentences!
In this scene, Tara Diehl, the heroine of Terran, has been injured and then kidnapped by Alpha Marlix, one of the rulers of the alien planet. He first summons a Terran physician to treat her, but not liking what he hears, calls for a Parseon one. Note: on Parseon, physicians have little status, they are considered to be mere technicians. We’re in Marlix’s POV & the first line is the physician’s:
“I meant because genetics and biology differ, I cannot guarantee treatments will work on a Terran.”
“That would be a shame—for you,” Marlix threatened, aware he was being unfair to the physician whose assumptions were most likely correct. But after kidnapping Tara from another Alpha’s province, Marlix could not allow her to perish from her injuries. Her death could cause an intergalactic crisis and a domestic one as well. It would not be long before Commander Dak demanded answers and recompense, and Marlix had not abducted her only to let her expire.
The technician gulped. “I will do everything I can.” He knelt beside Tara, opened his medical case, and extracted a bioscanner. He ran it over Tara from head to toe, and then peered at the screen. He frowned.
“What’s wrong?” Marlix demanded.
“N-nothing, Commander. I am trying to translate and apply the readings to Terran physiology. She has lost some blood, but other than her injuries, she appears to be a healthy, robust female—for a Terran.”
The physician extracted a propellant device from his case, snapped a small vial of liquid into the chamber, placed the apparatus against Tara’s neck and pulled the trigger. Her body jerked, and a cry of pain erupted from her throat.
“You are hurting her!” Marlix would have grabbed the physician by the throat, but Urazi forestalled him with a hand on his arm.
Loose Id will release Terran early in May 2014!
Unofficial Terran blurb:
After fleeing loneliness and heartache on Terra, Tara Diehl has adjusted to male-dominated Parseon better than most vendors until she is kidnapped by Alpha Marlix, one of the five rulers of the planet. At first she’s terrified of her tall, muscled abductor, especially when he doesn’t hesitate to quell her struggles for freedom with some force of his own. After all her methods and ploys to escape fail, she decides to seduce her way to freedom.
But out seduction and subterfuge grow a true intimacy that cause Marlix and Tara to take action that drives Parseon to the brink of civil war, and threaten 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, graphic sex, and spanking
Tara and Marlix appeared as secondary characters in Breeder.
To secure his legacy, Commander Dak, a ruling Alpha of planet Parseon, purchases Omra, a breeder slave. He intends to impregnate her, produce a son, and hand her off to his anointed beta partner. As Dak and Omra discover a sexual bliss banned by law, he begins to question the traditions and ways of his people, causing him to jeopardize his command and endanger the life of the woman he has come to love.
