A Standalone Novel in the Planet Alpha Series
Thank you for inviting my sexy aliens, Ciro and Luc over to your site. These guys are big tough Alphan males with golden skin, horns and a primitive desire to keep the woman in their life safe and satisfied at all times. However, they’ve been enjoying keeping each other content in the needs of the flesh as they’ve waited for Aurora to arrive into their lives – not that they could ever have imagined how she’d get there!
I hope you’ll check out RECKLESS which is just one of several ménage a trois Planet Alpha erotic romances available. It’s perfectly fine as a standalone read so go ahead, immerse yourself in a sexy new world where giving into love and lust is the order of the day, after you’ve fought off the bad guys of the Universe that is!
Aurora Zenith is battling to survive in poisonous London. Working at a docking station to Planet Alpha is not helping. Why? Because each day she witnesses lucky humans rocketing to a better life in the stars. With a surname last on the list to escape and a lung condition making her first on the list for death she’s getting desperate … and reckless.
Seeing an opportunity to stow away on sexy Captain Ciro’s shuttle to Alpha, Aurora acts first and thinks later. Trouble is, without a plan she’s flailing in space and lost on an alien world.
A string of rash decisions and a hasty retreat make for a perfect storm of danger, deceit, and lust. Will Aurora escape the evil Xyran who has her in his sights? Will Captain Ciro ever tear his attention from his gorgeous copilot and notice her? And what do the Alphans mean when they say a woman will complete them?
The only thing to do is fly with them and see where she lands.
Tentatively, Aurora approached the club. The smell of food grew stronger, as did the sound of voices. Before her was a set of steps leading downward. A polished wooden handrail was attached to the wall.
She took hold of it and allowed her palm to slide down as she descended. Warmth wrapped around her, and the sound of voices competed with the music. Passing several doorways, some closed, some ajar, she arrived at a large wooden double doorway. It was only open a few inches so she paused and looked inside.
Her heart sank. There didn’t appear to be any females. She’d stand out way too much if she just wandered in.
Several small animals were on spits being roasted over a fire, and she guessed they were the source of the heavenly smell. Alphans stood and sat around the fire, drinking from stout glasses and apparently immersed in conversation. It was clearly a place to eat and drink, and discuss the events of their planet.
The music came from a large speaker at the far end of the room. Manned by an Alphan, he sat with a surly expression next to a control deck, his eyebrows low and his mouth in a tight straight line.
Looking around, Aurora saw that most of the Alphans wore serious expressions. Unlike when humans got together with food and music and friends, Alphans weren’t jovial. The ambiance was solemn, though not threatening.
She licked her lips, saliva pooling in her mouth. When had she last eaten freshly roasted meat? She couldn’t remember. But there was no point getting her hopes up. There was no way she’d get any of the food being prepared.
A sound behind her startled Aurora. Turning, she realized it was coming from one of the rooms she’d walked past. She heard it again. A low rumble of an Alphan’s voice, then the scrape of metal on the hard floor, a chair perhaps.
Being sure to keep her footsteps silent, she walked up to the doorway. She didn’t know why. Something was drawing her to it— curiosity, fascination, a need for connection.
Peering through the inch wide crack between door and frame, Aurora could hardly believe what she saw. Captain Ciro and his copilot, Luc, were in the room.
Luc was sitting on a low chair with his hands flat on his thighs, fingers spread. He had his eyes closed and his head tipped back, his hair was tousled around his shiny horns and hung down his back. It was much longer than she’d thought it was. His throat was extended and vulnerable and his golden chest exposed as his pilot’s jacket was undone to his navel.
Beside him stood Captain Ciro. He was looking down with an expression of affection and lust.
Aurora pressed her lips together and clenched her fists. Were Ciro and Luc an item? It certainly seemed as if they were.
Ciro stroked the tip of his index finger over Luc’s mouth.
Luc dragged in a deep breath, his chest rising and his jacket slipping a little wider.
“Shh … be patient,” Ciro whispered. “I need it as much as you do.” He ran his finger over Luc’s chin, then the protrusion of his throat and down to his chest.
“It’s been a long day,” Luc said, tipping his head back further as a tremble attacked him. “That was a close call with those Xyrans.”
“It’s always a risk when we pass that close to the Partin System.”
“I know, but—”
“Shh, there’s no buts.” Ciro stooped and placed his lips a whisper from Luc’s. “The ucrium radiation deflected their attention.”
Ciro slanted his head kissed Luc. A hard, sure kiss that spoke of passion and support, love and a shared history.
Aurora pressed her fingers to her lips. She should leave. This was clearly a private moment in one of the club’s private rooms. No place for a human female to be hanging out.
But she couldn’t. The scene held her captivated. It was as if a magnet was holding her feet to the ground.
Praying no one would find her, she continued to watch as the kiss deepened.
Ciro was busy with his hands, stroking Luc’s chest and belly, but Luc remained still. Almost as if he’d been ordered to sit that way.
By who? Ciro? But Luc was a mighty Alphan warrior. He could refuse to do anything he didn’t want to.
He wants this.
Ciro rested his hand over Luc’s groin and squeezed.
Luc groaned, a vibrating rumble that mixed with the music.
Ciro broke the kiss. “You’re hard.”
“I need to mate,” Luc said, “with you … now.”
Ciro straightened and began to undo the golden buckle on his belt, his movements swift and efficient. He stared down at Luc as he did so, and it was evident, due to the large bulge in his groin area, that he was erect.
Aurora’s head spun. She had to go. She had to stay.
Ciro and Luc were homosexual. Seeing them together, doing the deed, would be a fantasy come true—a fantasy she hadn’t known she’d had until moments ago.
But why were they here? In a room in a club?
Clearly they weren’t too worried about being seen by other Alphans. But what would they make of her watching?
They wouldn’t find out. She’d stay just another minute and…
