By the time she’d spent all her sorrow, hiccups racked her frame. Each breath shuddered out with a gasp, and still he comforted her. Trev swept her into his arms and she buried her face against him, clinging to his neck. The sound of dripping increased, the steam on her skin growing warmer. Splashing ensued, and then the velvet touch of water slightly above body temperature covered her body.

Cradled in his arms, finally back where she’d longed to be, she was tempted to close her eyes and simply forget the world of trouble around them. A soft chirp by her ear enticed her away from hiding, from continuing to ignore the reality saying it was time to move on. Melina lifted her head to stare into swirling blue eyes.

The sharysa sat on the edge of the bathing pool, its head tilting from side to side.

“She’s worried about you.” Trev adjusted them so Melina sat straddling his hips, submersed to their necks. “She wonders why you cry when you’re with your mate.”

Melina drew another shaky breath. A mate? “You can talk with them?”

“This one is more articulate than the others. She seems to like me. Usually all I get is a blurry message, but with her it’s clearer. Piata thinks you should be happy since we’re together.”

The name he gave the petite creature made Melina smile. Only Trev would name a one-foot-tall furry rodent after one of the mammoth beasts of Tarn.

“Are we together again?” Her heart ached, longing for him to acknowledge what they’d shared.

Trev scooped a handful of water and washed her tear-covered face. “We’ve never been apart, Melina, at least not in my heart. I still love you.”

The tightness eased, and she kissed him. Their lips and tongues meshed as their hands clasped beneath the waters. Happy chirps and clicking brought a laugh from them both as they glanced at the little beast who now nodded in approval.

Trev bowed his head graciously. “I agree, Piata, my partner looks very good in my arms. She belongs there.”

Snippet from Claiming Derryn

My latest sale. Unedited, but still fun. Enjoy!

———–

How many layers of deception are there in Space?

When a trade negotiation goes wrong, Melina Davenport is sure she’ll end up either a causality of war or a sex slave. Discovering one of her missing partners, Trev, is the leader of the rebellion that has captured her adds insult to injury.

But when her former lover whips her away to a reunion with their third, Davis—now Captain of the notorious outlaw vessel, the Nottingham—she has to decide if she wants to join her two lovers in their important, but less than legal activities. Time is running out. The authorities are hunting them, the rebels are bomb crazy and the local fauna is reproducing at an astonishing rate aboard their vessel.

If they don’t find a solution soon, they can kiss the universe goodbye.

————-

Trev waited for the men in the room to turn their attention elsewhere. Of all the people to arrive in the delegation, the last person he’d expected was Melina. The Trade Embassy? When did she join those bloodsucking parasites? Not that he held any strong opinions on the matter. Before he’d shipped out on this covert operation to join the rebels she was firmly ensconced on her Grandpa’s cruiser, working nice safe agricultural jobs. The crew of his ship had already made plans to go and fetch her from the Space Institute Corporation once this job was done. Davis was going to have space kittens.

The warmth of her body in his lap sidetracked him, the swells of her breasts shifting with each breath she took. Her dark nipples, as tempting as he remembered, had his cock filling again. Distraction was an unaffordable luxury.

One more day. The irony was if the SIC negotiation party had waited one more day, none of this would have been necessary. He’d gathered what he needed, and arranged his escape from the planet with enough information to stop the rebels before their next attack. Now he’d have to juggle staying alive and keeping Melina under his control. As if being controlled had ever been a possibility with her. Stubborn, bullheaded, psychotic wench.

He’d missed her.

A harsh pinch to his thigh brought his attention back to the present. Pretending to recline docilely against his torso, she’d wormed one hand between them and now tapped message after message in the old Institute code. Hell if he understood half of what she said. The key words for danger and attack he recognized, and the swear words sprinkled plentifully amidst her communication, but he’d never given a tatoshit about learning the rest. He reached to cup her breast and the hand on his thigh froze. The steam and the sticky moisture of his semen smeared together like an exotic cream as he brushed her nipple with a thumb. He chuckled when the tip beaded tight at his slight caress.

He’d missed her a lot.

It was lucky she’d been the woman in the negotiating party, because there was no way he would have been able to make a public spectacle of himself without her sweet scent driving him. As it stood, Dax remained suspicious of the fact no blood had been shed.

When he judged enough time had passed for them to leave safely, he stood and gestured to his remaining guard. The man escorted them down a side passage to the private quarters Trev had assumed with the leadership of the rebels. Killing someone to get better sleeping arrangements was an age-old custom honored throughout the universe, and Trev was grateful for the previous owner’s lavish tastes. The bathing pool alone might get him a little grace for the crap he’d just pulled to save Melina’s life. At least he hoped she would see it that way.

One of the sharysa appeared at their feet, running beside them, cutting across their path until they stopped. It wandered around Melina’s feet, sniffing enthusiastically then leapt into his arms to chatter with excitement.

Once again, foggy images filled his brain. The creatures tried to communicate, but rarely did more than random emotions and pictures come through. It was as bad as the academy codes—you knew something was being said, but not the true message. Licking his cheek, it jumped to Melina, kissed her as well, then raced down the corridor squealing with delight.

The door closed with a solid clang behind them and Melina whirled to face him, the darkness in her eyes blacker than any starless sky. She stepped closer, grabbed him by the front of his vest and hauled their bodies together.

Hell yeah.

Instantly hard, instantly ready, he swallowed her kisses, ate greedily at her mouth, their tongues tangling for domination. Over a year wasted since they’d last touched, but it was like coming home, familiar and exciting all at the same time. He guided them blindly toward the bed with his body as he stripped off his vest and tore open his pants while she shrugged out of the tatters of her light robe. He refused to let their mouths part, growling with the base need to get closer, to consume her. Her taste exploded through his system, the sweet spicy flavor of her lips, her skin, her being—sliding back through him like high-test shots.

Oh shit, he’d missed her a fucking lot.

I’m pleased to annouce that I’ve signed my first contract with Ellora’s Cave!! They will be publishing my Space Opera, Claiming Derryn this coming year.

I am very excited to be joining some of the other members of International Heat at Ellora’s, especially in light of Rhian Cahill’s announcement last week that she too has sold to EC.

(Other’s of IH that are now published at EC are Mari Carr, Lexxie Couper and Jayne Rylon.)

Oh, did I mention the story is a tad hot? This was the cover that the talented Valerie Tibbs made for inspiration for me while I was writing it.

Taking a deep breath

It’s been almost a year since I started this blog. I had only recently signed the contract for Wolf Signs, and over the first months I shared about the process I was experiencing for the first time. Filling in art forms, creating drafts of blurbs and warnings–gotta love the warnings they include at Samhain!The first edits. Removing a million extraneous words from the story…oh my did I use a lot of ‘that, begin, just, simply…’ in that first story.

Now that I’m working on the the sixth (!) set of these papers, I have to tell you the thrill is still there, but it’s …different. The joy is more like a steady buzz and less like an electric shock.

Both, equally addictive. Really.

There’s sad moments too, but I’m also learning that part has changed in tone as well. I submitted Claiming Derryn for the Space Opera anthology, and just found out that while I made it to the very end selection, my story was not one of the three chosen. I’m disappointed, but there’s still this amazing sense of accomplishment that rings through me. I wrote a Space Opera! And a damn good one. In one month’s time I wrote and polished a 30K work that I really enjoy reading.

Wow.

The story is now with my regular editor at Samhain. We’ll see what she has to say. I trust these people–the editors. They’re not rejecting me. They’re saying that in some cases the work needs a little more polish, or in the case of the anthology, there were simply better stories to fit together.

I’m still anticipating being able to share my Space Opera with you at some point. The sharysa will continue to breed prolifically until they are brought into the light of day to enjoy! In the meantime, I’m working on Book three in the Granite Lake wolves. Daily Progress is shown on the bar at the right–

And it’s still magical to see the words appear under my fingers. I can hardly wait to see what happens next…
