Hello everyone! Welcome to day four of the Christmas Party at The Romance Studio. I hope you’re enjoying yourself and finding lots of great books to read! I finally have presents wrapped, and today I’m focusing on making sure I have everything I need for Christmas dinner, and baking goodies. This year I’m making peanut butter cups, marshmallow squares, and candy cane sprinkled chocolate cupcakes, all by request. What do you usually bake for the holidays? Any family favorites?
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jessica E. Subject, and I write sci-fi romance that ranges from sweet to super sexy. I write about aliens, clones, androids, futuristic and dystopian worlds, and most recently, zombies. To find out more about me and my books, visit my website at http://jessicasubject.com.
Today I’m going to share an excerpt from Beyond Reach, one of my releases from this year.
Abandoned by her parents…
Born on Earth, Nixie was left on the planet Schedar when her parents returned home. Growing up on the pleasure planet, she follows in the footsteps of the woman who raised her, and learns the art of erotic massage. But Nixie yearns for a different life, one where she receives as much pleasure as she gives.
A runaway prince…
In an attempt to escape his arranged marriage, Prince Mekai flees to Schedar. For, he could never love his betrothed when he already loves another, a fantasy woman who invades his dreams every night. When the woman he seeks carnal pleasure from turns out to be the same one in his fantasies, he believes fate brought them together.
Fated lovers or forever enemies?
Just when Nixie and Mekai believe they have a chance at happiness with each other, they find out why their races are at war, and why they can never be together.
Mekai sighed heavily, waiting on the bed. He couldn’t get the young Terran woman he’d met on the street out of his mind. Nixie. Not only was she absolutely stunning, she also reminded him of the woman he’d dreamed about for years.
But she shouldn’t be in his thoughts; Terrans and Ubetrons did not mingle. They didn’t even speak from distances. Their planets were positioned far from each other, across the universe. Bad blood had been spilled many star cycles ago, causing a rift between the two societies. And yet, he would bridge the gap, if given the opportunity, just to experience Nixie.
He closed his eyes, envisioning her beautiful face, her long, raven-colored hair flowing down her back, her almond-shaped, violet eyes. Oh, he craved her, a feeling he’d only felt for an imaginary woman until now.
A knock on the door startled him from his thoughts.
Shit! His Suavita had arrived. He’d been lucky to get an appointment so soon after his quarantine period. The bronze-skinned Schedarn man at the desk wanted him to take tomorrow night, but a few gems he’d managed to collect from the caves of Carbae had persuaded the man to rearrange the schedule. How would the woman sent to him feel if he turned her away? He’d never get his money back, but could he enjoy the pleasures the Suavitas were known for if he had another woman on his mind? Perhaps that would further heighten the experience. And how would he find the Terran woman anyway? He knew nothing but her name and the sight of her shapely body.
Might as well enjoy the planet while I’m here. “Come in.”
The door to his suite slid open and the woman slipped into his darkened room. “Sir, I’ll be your Suavita for the evening. Would you like me to turn the lights up?”
“No, leave the room dim.” He planned to picture Nixie bringing him pleasure instead.
The woman gasped. He opened his eyes to get a better look, but couldn’t see her facial expressions. Somehow, though, he could sense something familiar about her.
“Mekai. Your name is Mekai?”
Yes, he knew that voice, had heard it earlier in the day. “Nixie? You’re my Suavita?” Could he get any luckier? His heart hammered in his chest. He didn’t have to imagine anything. The woman he’d planned to fantasize about, had always fantasized about, stood in front of him.
“Yes, I am.” She kept her tone curt, distanced. “Now, if you don’t mind, I’d like to get started. Please get up on the table, sir.”
Her accentuated last word stung. What had he done to piss her off?
“I haven’t stopped thinking about you since I saw you this afternoon.” Gods, could he sound any more immature?
But his words seemed to soften Nixie’s glare, and she tilted her head to the side. “I’m surprised, considering you couldn’t wait to get here and have fun with your Suavita.”
What in Tenebrae? “Yes, Terran, but you are my Suavita.”
If her eyes held lasers, he’d be ashes on the floor.
“I can easily find a replacement if I’m not to your liking.”
Quite the opposite. He slid off the bed. Stepping forward, he brushed a hand down her tanned arm. She belonged with him on Carbae, not here to provide pleasure for others. Where had that thought come from?
She wouldn’t be accepted in his kingdom. She was Terran. Right now, he didn’t care. “I don’t want anyone else. I want you.” And he’d give her as much pleasure as she gave him, more even.
She didn’t shy away, but calmed down against him. Cupping her cheek in his hand, he ran his thumb along her full pink lips. He couldn’t wait to taste them, have them around his cock. Gods, she drove him wild.
He leaned forward to savor her luscious lips, but she pulled away with a whimper. “I can’t do this.”
“But you’re a Suavita. This is what you’re paid to do.” He wanted the experience to be more than an obligation. Having the night end before it began didn’t work for him.
She gazed down at her feet. “This is my first overnight appointment. I…I’m not used to kissing and all that. Only a massage followed by your pleasure.”
A beautiful woman like her had never been kissed before, and on Schedar of all places? How was that possible? “You can take the lead then. But join me on the bed.”
She stiffened, as if becoming distant. “We’ll start on the massage table for the standard rubdown, sir. We’ll move to the bed later in the night.”
Oh yes they would, and there he’d turn the tides, take control of the night and escort her into the land of oblivion. He need only wait for her to let her guard down.
At the table, he dropped his robe to the ground, ensuring she had a full-frontal view.
What would she think of him? Was she disgusted by his Ubetron form?
His abnormal self-consciousness helped to calm his raging hard-on, but his mind kept returning to Nixie. He needed to touch her again, taste her, be in her. Finally, he’d found a woman he hungered for. But was the feeling mutual? Could he make love to her the way he did in his fantasies? He lay down, cringing in the process. This was going to be a long night.
“Are you ready, sir?”
Sir, again? “Yes, miss, I’m ready.”
She unzipped her appointment bag. “You may call me Suavita.”
“And you may call me Mekai.” I plan to have you screaming my name by the end of the night.
“I prefer sir. Please lie still and relax.”
He sighed. One way or another, he would break down her walls.
Oil sloshed onto his back, the strong scent of ipsum encapsulating the room. As Nixie’s hands met his bare skin, he tensed then melted into a puddle. Her hands worked to loosen every muscle throughout his back, down his legs, and along his arms. No touch had ever made him so rested, yet raring to go at the same time. She’d learned well, digging deep into his body. He couldn’t wait to turn over and experience her knowledge of his other erogenous zones.
Trailing a finger down his spine, she whispered, “It’s time to move to the bed, sir. Please lie on your back.”
With his legs flimsy like rubber, he wobbled over to the bed, his mind set on how to seduce her, make her want him the way he wanted her.
