So today I got some pretty awesome news. For those of you who don't know, I finally finished Don't Call Me Iron (my submission for the Beyond Fairytales line) and submitted it to Decadent Publishing. And with that being the case, I awoke this morning to a wonderful email from them. They loved the story and offered me a contract for it. I was absolutely ecstatic about it. This will be the first book that will be published by a royalty paying publisher. *does snoopy dance*
Anyway with that being said, I thought I'd give you a glimpse inside of Lucero's world in just words this week but pictures as well. Isn't it beautiful?
|Lucero's home world of Sisera|
Okay and now on to the lovely snippet. How the devilish Lucero can multi-task while claiming his mate is totally beyond me.
“Look at me, amans. Before we finish this, we have one last thing to do.”
Focusing on Lucero took some doing, but Ivan finally managed. And was glad he had. Nothing was sexier than his Sir with flushed cheeks and determination stamped on face. In his palm, Lucero cupped several small pieces of what looked like silver rods and even a disk. Ivan’s lust-dazed mind tried to wrap around what his lover was holding.
“It is customary for the praesul to mark his mate. It’s a sign of honor and lets everyone know that you are taken. Will you allow me to place this shield…” He held out a silver disk with the center cut out of it. “…around your nipple and close to your chest?”
Blinking, Ivan glanced between the shield and Lucero. “I’d love to wear it, but I don’t know if it will stay…”
An amused grin crossed Lucero’s face. “True…which is what these are for.” He pinched two slender rods between his fingers. “I will have to insert these through your nipple.”
Shock warred with surprise. He’d toyed more than once with getting his nipples pierced at home but had never gotten around to it. “You want to pierce me? While you’re balls deep in me?”
Okay now that I'm done teasing you, be sure to stop by the rest of the hops. You'll be glad you did!
