#8Sunday: From Terran…a fight with her kidnapper…

When Marlix learns the Terran female he has kidnapped used him to sneak out an SOS note, he whisks her away to a hideaway. He cannot allow her rebellion to go unpunished…

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors and my eight-sentence excerpt from Terran, the second book in the Breeder sci-fi romance series.

CB_Terran_coverlgShe balled her free hand into a fist and struck his face. He jerked his head but took the blow and the others she rained upon his shoulders, chest, and arms. She drew her fingers back and with an open palm, aimed the heel at his nose. That one could have done some damage, but he deflected it.

“Let me go, you asshole!” She flailed her arms and legs as he picked her up, sat on the bench, and laid her across his lap. Instead of lifting her shift, he ripped it from shoulder to hem. The force expended, the tearing, the sudden exposure of her nakedness—he felt triumphant satisfaction.

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.

  1. Highly descriptive, packed with tension — great stuff as ever, Cara! Looks like things are getting scrappy!

  2. S.J. Maylee says:

    These two certainly knew how to push each other’s buttons and raise the level the heat level in a room. Great snippet, Cara. It’s a great tease to what happens next.

  3. A lot of energy crackling in this snippet – great 8! Love these books!

  4. Millie Burns says:

    Oh wow! There are sparks flying.

  5. Botanist says:

    Glad she’s still fighting! One thing I’ve been thinking about as I read these snippets, and maybe you touched on this earlier in weeks I missed, it would greatly help me to know why she’s been abducted in the first place. What was his motivation? What is Marlix after? This is hugely important in understanding the stakes and buying into the premise. And if his reasons are mysterious at this point, then I would expect that fact to be playing into Tara’s thoughts.

      You could always read the book to find out his motivation. 🙂 Basically, she was attacked and severely injured, and he took to help her, but then decided he wanted her and decided to keep her. Marlix is an Alpha Commander–one of five rulers of his planet. No one challenges an Alpha. What Alpha wants, Alpha gets.

  6. An exciting snippet full of surprises and she pays for her audacity in an interesting way. Hot scene.

    exciting snippet, full of surprises

    My hands are balled into fists ready to punch him, too. Wow, alpha x a zillion.
