Hello and welcome!
Read on and find out about the surprise visit I got lat night.
Ah, a Thursday night to myself, I speak to myself, as I make plans to curl up on the couch and watch a movie munching on some chocolates left behind by MA and maybe some popcorn too..
I get close to my front door and I notice a man standing next to it. He is tall, around six foot two, with medium brown hair he keeps in a tiny ponytail at the back of his head. He sees me coming towards him and a hopeful look enters his eyes. I have a feeling I am going to like this, the heck with the movie. Then again, what is there not to like about him? He is dressed in leather from the top of his wide shoulders to his boots. We all know how I feel about men in leather, especially when it hugs their body like a lover and … OH MY!!! He is built to please!
Eni? The man enquires in a deep husky baritone that cause goosebumps over every inch of my body.
I stifle an appreciative sigh as I look into stormy blue eyes and answer, Can I do something for you?
I have something to show you, as well as a favor to ask, he begins.
I hate to do this, but a woman can’t be too sure of strangers waiting outside of her door, Who are you? And who sent you?
Well, he blushes, to be honest, I stole your records from MA’s computer files and hightailed it to your address. She is being unreasonable and I figured you might be able to help me reason with her.
Why should I? I decide to give this man a difficult time. You haven’t even told me your name yet, you just confessed to hacking into my friend’s computer, and I have never seen you before in my life. How do I know you aren’t hiding a weapon somewhere on you and waiting for me to let down my guard before you attack me or something.
My name is Luce and, I give you my word of honor as a Four Star General from the Hampton Planetoid that I am not a convict or pervert. I have only come with a small request, he insists.
The weapon? I ask pointedly.
Luce slowly turns, as he raises his hand into the air to show he isn’t hiding anything, Do you see any signs of a weapon?
I can’t help myself as my eyes head south and latch on to the curve of his behind. I have to admit, I don’t see signs of a weapon either. Perhaps, I should frisk him, then again, that would be a bad idea… for me.
It is then that I notice the tube he is carrying and wonder where that came from, What is in there?
It is what I came to show you, Luce admits.
Alright, I’ll bite, I comment, as I open the door, please come in and show me what you have.
Luce enters the room ahead of me and I softly sigh, I really like the view. He looks great in those leathers, especially from behind. Well, now you know… I like a well-defined tush on a man, so sue me 😛
As I hang up my coat, Luce opens the tube and unfurls a poster. I immediately gasp as I note it is a picture of one of MA’s upcoming releases and he is on it. I haven’t seen this before. I love it, but how did you get your hands on it?
I told you, I hacked into her computer, Luce doesn’t sound the least bit ashamed or repentant.
For this? Why? It is only a matter of time before she shows it off, she can’t keep secrets when it comes to her books, I tell him.
She intended to keep this one a secret, even worse, she wasn’t going to release the book until 2020, and late in the year at that. I am not happy about having to wait that long for my bride. I want her now, Luce sounds fierce.
I can’t help you, I state. Cute tush or not.
Why not? Luce asks.
Her schedule is committed for the next year. There is nothing I can do to change that, I state.
How about next year? I am begging, Luce pleads. Teyla could change her mind and I can’t give her that chance.
Is she that fickle? I am tempted to believe she isn’t worth the effort you are going through for her, if that is the case, I reply.
She isn’t fickle, Luce defends his love.
That is so sweet. I give a sigh as his eyes plead his case. I can’t say no. Alright, I will talk her into it, but I want the poster.
It is yours, Luce all but pushes it at me, as he moves to give me a hug.
Wait! I quickly order him to stop, then I put the poster aside and hold out my arms. Now you can hug me. We will do a press release and she will have no choice but to fall in with our demands.
Luce gives me a hug and smile as he comments, I owe you, but for now, I better get back to my ship. I have a long way to go to get back.
I watch him leave and sigh, I really do love a man in leather.
I hope you enjoyed the visit too 😉 well… maybe not as much as I did, but …
Teyla Sherman is a military genius that has climbed the ranks quickly on the planetoid known as New York in a cluster that was seeded centuries before by Earthships. She is known for her tactical mind, as well as her beauty and, although she is often sent into areas of the cluster to plan out strategies, she will not like the mission she is about to be sent out on. She is to shadow an equally talented General to develop plans for an attack on his planet, should they be needed. To do this, she is ordered to use every asset she has to accomplish her goal.
Luce Renfrew is known as a ladies man, a handsome devil that attracts women like a magnet. He is used to getting what he wants and he wants Teyla. He is prepared to use every dirty trick in the book to get his way, especially when he discovers that the attraction is mutual.
General Roberts is Teyla’s commanding officer and he hates her with a passion that is not to be denied. He will do anything to destroy her, but up to this point, his efforts have only elevated her career. When he finds out she is in love with a General from another Planetoid, he declares war of a different kind. If he can’t win one way, he will another.
When Generals from opposing sides of the cluster fall in love and the stakes are high, what will it take for those around them to let them come together?
Equals is scheduled to release October 2020. I am editing the manuscript now and I have to tell you, I understand why Luce wants his story released to the world earlier than scheduled.
Here is a taste 😉
“You feel so right in my arms,” Luce groaned, as he wrapped his arms around Teyla to pull her closer. He then feathered her lips with his, coaxing them apart to receive his kiss.
Teyla’s reaction was spontaneous, as she stretched up towards Luce and parted her lips to meet his. Her body strained to get closer, even as her mind screamed no.
Do you think I should help him and convince Mary Ann to release ‘Equals’ earlier than the scheduled date? Let me know in the comments and could win a $5 Amazon GC. Sexy Mr. Random will let me know who the winner is on Monday, November 12, 2018.
Until next time, happy book reading / listening and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
