Happy Sunday, folks.
Today is a rather special day for me, because it's our 25th wedding anniversary. Not quite sure where those years went, but I do know that I could not imagine life without my other half.
So, instead of bringing you hot snippets, I thought I would bring you emotional ones, and yes I apologise they are far longer than seven sentences, but they give an insight into Alzaar's state of mind. Both he and Bentaan lost someone very dear in their past....
“A warship is no place for a woman and a small child, no matter how capable they are. You will be safe on Drakan,” he said.
“Says who? Ben wasn’t safe on earth. Your wife wasn’t safe on your planet.” He tensed again and Sapphyre hated to be the cause of more pain. It was abundantly clear to her that Alzaar must have loved his wife deeply. Maybe so much that he would never be able to love another. After all, those had been her feelings after she lost Ben. They still were, weren’t they? Sapphyre shook her head to clear it off those confusing thoughts and continued.
“There are no guarantees in life. Don’t send Jayde and me away on some sort of misguided sense of duty. I don’t want to leave, please.”
“Listen to her, brother.”
Bentaan’s deep voice joined her own and Alzaar sighed.
“Fine, have it your way. I am still setting course for Drakan, once this mission is over. And once we’re there, you two will leave this ship.” He raised his hand and touched her hair briefly, before he dropped his hand to his side.
“And for the record, you would never be just a brood mare on Drakan. Yes, our species need females, but we would never treat them like that. Any Drakan man would be honored if you chose him for your mate.”
“Just not you?” she asked, and he frowned. Bentaan swore and Alzaar stalked from the room without answering.
A warship is no place for a human mother and her child. However, Drakan Commander Alzaar and his second in command, Bentaan, have no choice but to bring Sapphyre and Jayde on board. Not least, because their instincts scream at them, that she is the one woman who can turn them into a family again.
Sapphyre just wants to keep her daughter safe. How on earth does she do that surrounded by droolworthy Aliens, when her libido keeps leading her astray? It is abundantly clear that Alzaar doesn't want her on board ship. At least Bentaan does and the sex is out of this world. If only her heart wasn't involved, and she didn't want both of them.
When the Tamarillion is attacked, Sapphyre has to fight for her men and the ship she now calls home. Without her all would be lost, and Alzaar finally shows his emotions.
However, when regulations and their pasts collide, can they rescue each other?
Scheduled for release on 27th :-)
