Next week is my first release!
I feel like a virgin all over again! Well, without worrying about Mom and Dad finding out. (My sister accidentally "outed" me as a writer of naughty bits a few months ago. But that's a story for another day...)
Chella's Quest is a space romp about a chemist and a government agent. Sounds exciting, right? Doesn't everyone love an erotic romance about a nerdy chemist who searches the galaxy to find the stolen formula of a powerful new narcotic? No? Well, here's more...
After years of experimentation, Dr. Chella Ter-Berron developed a powerful new drug that will make pain a thing of the past. She'll do anything to find the thief who stole her research -- even sleep with the prime suspect. But when the man in question is a hot Cruthian male, her task quickly becomes more about pleasure and less about work.
Kain Suvan might be a thief, but Chella's research has since been stolen from him. Kain needs the brilliant scientist he's been lusting after to help him track down the missing file and return it to the High Council for safekeeping. Together, they journey to the edge of the galaxy in a search that yields more questions than answers. And some of those questions can only be answered by the heart.
Still not convinced? Here's an excerpt:
Chella gulped. The door closed behind them, and his hands and lips launched a sensual assault that left her heady with desire. The effects of the Ardorex began to fade. Her real reaction to him merged with the drug's waning simulation of lust; it left her breathless. Pure, unadulterated need pounded between her legs, and the intensity of her response brought a flicker of panic to her stomach. Chella ignored the feeling and untangled herself from his embrace.
She needed another pill. Something that would keep her confident, aggressive and horny for the next hour or so. Well, maybe not horny - that she could do on her own. "Be right back."
"Forget the pills." It wasn't a suggestion.
Her jaw dropped. "How did you know?"
"I created Ardorex. Your pupils are huge, and your mouth tastes like sugar." He grinned when her eyes went wide and added, "You must be human."
She felt like an idiot. She had expected a thief, not a chemist. Of course he knew about pharmaceuticals-he was the number one suspect for the theft of the T-56.
He pulled her back to him. "You'll do just fine without it." His teeth nipped her shoulder. Something wicked and hot unfurled in her womb. The purse slid from her hands, and her nipples burned into the silky bodice, chafing against the soft fabric with every move she made.
The dress was history. It spilled to the floor in a stream of red. His finger looped around the elastic of her panties and yanked them down. With as much restraint as she could muster, she unzipped his shirt and added it to the pile of clothes.
He walked backwards and lowered himself to the pillows of his bed. She watched, enthralled at the muscles that shimmered with sweat in the dimly lit berth. Kain untied the knot at the top of his pants and placed his hands behind his head.
"You can do the rest," he whispered. "That is what I'm paying you for."
Chella stepped out of her panties. "Shoes on or off?"
His eyes traveled down her unclad legs and stopped at the black stilettos. "On."
She leaned over him. His fingers caught a plump nipple, tugging and teasing it until her knees became water. She loosened the laces at his crotch with shaky hands. His cock pressed against the leather and warmed the heel of her palm while she worked.
He must have sensed her hesitation. "Nervous?"
"No," she lied. "Just impatient."

And if you're very, very good, I'll give you some more later this week ;)
