Once again it's time to do our blog hop....and this week, I'm going to give you a glimpse of how persuasive Lucero can be when it comes to negotiating what he wants from Ivan. This scene is from after Ivan agrees. Lucero has left him alone to bathe, and now our hero is having second thoughts. After all he just made a deal that will require him to be sexually submissive to Lucero for 72 hours - in exchange Lucero will return to the royal clutch with Ivan. (this is just before what happens in my previous post.) Enjoy and be sure to visit the rest of the stops!
Standing naked in the middle of the main room with nothing more than a small swatch of cloth wrapped around his lean hips, Ivan couldn’t help but wonder if he hadn’t made a mistake by agreeing to this. What man in his right mind trades his body in exchange for something a human would give willingly? A desperate one who was dealing with a being that was no longer human – if it ever had been.
He shivered as the air flow through the room was disrupted. He was no longer alone, but he didn’t turn. There was only one being that would be in this remote location with him. Lucero had returned from where ever he’d gone. Ivan didn’t know if he should be relieved or angry about it. Although one thing was certain, he didn’t trust himself to not chicken out at the last second. Would Lucero, as the machine insisted upon being called, force him?
Ivan jumped when hands that should’ve been cold but weren’t, settled on his shoulders. The heated brush of what felt like lips across the back of his neck sent a jolt of awareness down his spine. He stifled the moan that tried to break free. How had Lucero known his neck was sensitive?
