Happy Sexy New Year! Welcome to the first My Sexy Saturday blog hop of 2016. The theme is Our Sexy New Year and guess what? I got nothin’! So in honor of our seven word, seven sentence, seven paragraph guideline, I went to page 77 of my new release, Curse of Salar, and this is what I found:
Even during his time as first officer in the minister’s personal guard, Rayn had never experienced such luxury. While the prince’s quarters were not exactly opulent or dripping with riches, every small detail within them was the rarest, most exotic and exquisite of its kind, much like the prince himself.
Rayn stretched out on silk sheets woven by the finest craftswomen along the sea of Kush. The natural coolness of the fiber was a delight against his overheated skin.
He should leave before the palace began to stir. He ached to be inside Dezra again, but he enjoyed watching the prince sleep. Without the twin dogs of worry and suspicion harrying him, Dezra’s beauty shone through.
Blurb for Masters and Mages 3: Curse of Salar
In the desert kingdom of Jahar, the rule of mages has been overthrown and the ancient lineage of sorcerer kings wiped out. Prince Dezra and his sister are the last living members of the royal family and are held prisoners in their ancestral palace.
Prince Dezra lives a life of lies and deceit. In order to stay alive, he must pretend to be a drug-addicted wastrel, trusting no one, isolated from even his sister who has chosen to cooperate with the government that executed their parents.
Into his lonely existence comes a man who should be his sworn enemy; Captain Rayn Nevar. Dezra is irresistibly drawn to the rough soldier and his longing for a simple sexual encounter quickly morphs into a dangerous obsession.
Captain Rayn Nevar knows he should stay far away from Prince Dezra, but his desire for the beautiful young man overrides all common sense. Despite the fact that Dezra’s ancestors destroyed Rayn’s family, the captain finds himself in a position of protecting the prince from the many schemers who believe the last of the mages should be annihilated.
When treachery leads to Dezra’s escape, he is at last free to bond with the serpent god Ka’alar and develop his long repressed powers. Only the arrival of a mysterious monk with powers greater than Dezra’s stops the prince from using black sorcery to destroy all who stand in his way, including Rayn.
As Jahar edges toward another war between masters and mages, Rayn must question his devotion to his increasingly deadly lover while Dezra must decide if ultimate power is worth the ultimate sacrifice.
