Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, in which authors present eight sentences from a work. I’ve been more or less working chronolocially through Terran, book 2 of the Breeder sci-fi romance series, but I’m going back up. This scene occurs after Tara has seduced Marlix in the hope of gaining her freedom (he has kidnapped her). She is reflecting on the coitus that has just occurred and is trying to work the angles…
For such a domineering control-freak Neanderthal, he’d been accommodating. It appeared one could teach new tricks to an old Alpha. Not that he was ancient. How Parseon ages and Terran ones compared, she did not know, but he appeared to be about midthirties.
“You were good.” She stroked his ego but realized she spoke the truth. After a little tutoring, Marlix had turned into a decent lover. And he had a rockin’ bod.
“Good at what?” he asked.
Okay, work remained to be done.
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.
