It’s been a while since I’ve had a regular visitor. Today, I’d like to welcome fellow author, Kenzie Michaels and her latest release an erotic sci-fi novel. Kenzie is on tour at the moment, and it’s a pleasure to join her as she promotes her new book.
Still mourning the tragic death of his beautiful mate, could another Chosen one already be waiting for NiKoh SiLah? To avoid what he’s not ready to accept, he throws himself into his work at Planet Security.
Leaving the Academy behind to follow her dream of working with animals, GiNae SoJae returns home. Preoccupied with work and not ready to take a mate, she’s horrified when her body enters Maturity. GiNae fights the changes occurring within her. But during nightly dreams she cannot control, an unknown man teaches her the secrets of her body.
Will NiKoh and GiNae succumb to the paths they think have been chosen for them or will they discover the true Chosen life that awaits them?
“I cannot do this. I am not ready, NiKoh. Please leave.” BeSai clutched the folds of her yellow robe over her breasts and burst into tears.
NiKoh reached for her, but she pulled away and threw herself on the bed, her sobs ripping at his heart. Helpless, he slid his arms into his black tunic and exited his mate’s bedchamber. He paused as BeSai’s nurse appeared in the corridor.
“Again?” She reached for NiKoh’s arm and squeezed it. “Your brother’s Bonding must have been too much for her.”
Anguish welled up in his chest. “I was hoping—it has been months, AnKie. When will she truly be my mate again?” NiKoh heard his voice tremor and break.
AnKie’s silvery face reflected compassion. “We do not know. Let me console her, then we will talk later.” She moved into the room and NiKoh heard her call out to his despondent mate.
He wandered downstairs to the eating area and poured himself a goblet of his favorite fermented beverage. He took the cup into the living area and sank onto a golden brown chair in front of the fireplace, contemplating his life.
It has been three seasons since BeSai lost the child, and OkVae is nearing the completion of his studies. Three seasons—no, four, since BeSai and I last made love. How much longer will it be? OkVei, their only son, was at the military academy, following in his father’s footsteps. Soon he will be ready to find his Chosen, while I wither away in sexual agony. NiKoh’s left hand adjusted the swollen bulge between his legs and willed his body to relax. According to the law, I am perfectly within my rights to seek relief with another, but it has been so long since I even looked at another female in that manner. For the thousandth time, he wished his father were still alive. I do not feel comfortable discussing this with Mother or even one of the Elders. He shook his head and a stray lock of hair tickled his eye. NiKoh released his purple hair from the leather thong and felt the shoulder length mass cascade past his neck. Ever since participating in his brother’s Bond Test, he’d discovered a certain freedom in wearing his hair long. BeSai had taken delight in grooming him and combing his thick locks….
Kenzie Michaels resides in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and various household pets. Her fifth-grade teacher showed this avid reader how to write the stories swirling in her head, successfully unleashing her imagination upon the written word.
Kenzie is the ‘wild child’ of author Molly Daniels. They cohabitate nicely inside the brain of a woman in Indiana who’s the mother of three and ‘Aunt Molly’ to the entire neighborhood. A devout chocoholic, her hubby has learned to watch out when the characters in her head take over and not get too upset when the words are flowing and all concept of time is lost. (LOL)
