I would love to reveal some of my favorite parts of the book–but I’m saving those for the book! So, for this week’s Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors, I’m sharing this snippet.
Anika is on the run from an arranged breeding. Urazi has tracked her down. It is the dead of winter, and they are bedded down outdoors. They were freezing until Urazi put their sleep mats together, and they’re now cuddled up for warmth (we’re in Urazi’s POV).
She purred like a feleen. “Mm. This is better.”
“I missed you.” She curled her fingertips into his chest, splayed the other hand against his back and rubbed.
He hadn’t missed her. He’d ached for her, hungered for her, yearned for her, feared with near desperation she might have fallen victim to some tragedy.
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.
