Greetings weekend hoppers! I’m continuing with excerpts from Warrior, the third Breeder sci-fi romance. It’s been submitted to Loose Id, and I am waiting to hear back.
A little background on the snippet: Anika’s brother, who holds authority over her, intends for her to become another Alpha’s breeder. He does not know that Anika has been involved in a clandestine relationship with Urazi, his beta (former partner). Distraught over the turn of events, Anika runs to Urazi, hoping he will save her. This is Urazi’s reaction (and POV):
“Alpha Marlix has made a wise decision. Commander Ilian is kind. To become his—” he broke off, unable to force breeder and its connotation` past his lips—” to serve in his household is a great honor for a female.”
Anika worked her mouth. “That is all you have to say?” She stared at him, her eyes huge in her face.
Urazi blinked to avoid embarrassing himself. “I wish you many sons.”
Unofficial Warrior blurb
A female fighting for freedom. A male armed with determination. Can they save their people?
As a despotic Qalin marches through Parseon intent on conquering every province, Commander Marlix pledges his sister to another Alpha to protect her. Desperate to decide her own fate, Anika flees and finds refuge with the guerilla resistance movement against Qalin. Marlix’s beta Urazi, a male of lesser status, tracks her intending to bring her home to fulfill her duty. But when love blossoms between them, and provinces fall to Qalin, Anika and Urazi realize home has ceased to exist and they alone are all that stand between the people of Parseon and the end of the world.
