A peek at Zarius

Zarius by L.A. Day
Releases December 28, 2007 from Ellora’s Cave

Zar is a Rejan male that’s come to Earth to claim his mate. Star doesn’t know she has Rejan blood and thinks she has found the perfect man.

Zar’s first thought upon feeling his mate pressed intimately against him was that she was even lovelier up close than at a distance. His second was decidedly more carnal and prompted him to take a step back before she felt his reaction.
From a distance, he had admired her. But up close, her radiant beauty caused his body to throb with desire. This he had expected. However, he had not expected what he thought was his heart turning over in his chest.

Zarius quirked a brow, unsettled by his own reaction but decidedly pleased with her response to him. This might be easier than he’d anticipated. After observing a few females of her kind, he had been concerned that she might be too independent to conform easily to Rejan ways.

As they entered the small restaurant Zar cast a suspicious gaze about, taking note of their surroundings. There were many Earthlings jammed into the small establishment. Out of habit, he scanned the occupants. Discovering nothing out of the ordinary, he led his mate to the counter.

Having partaken of a meal at several places since his arrival, he had found most of the foods he had ordered edible and some delicious even. He ordered the same as his mate—a tuna sandwich. What he received was mush on soft bread. He hoped the taste exceeded the smell.

“Oh my gosh,” Star exclaimed as she took her seat in a booth at the back of the crowded deli. “We haven’t introduced ourselves. My name is Star. Star Elliot.” Luminous eyes turned to him expectedly.

He had just taken a bite of his mush, which was not as bad as he feared. Hurriedly he chewed before responding. “I like your name.” He thought it very appropriate. “I am named Zarius. My closest friends address me as Zar.”
“Hmm, I like it. It’s different, like you. What’s your last name?” Her vivid green eyes danced as she spoke.

Her apparent innocence entranced Zarius. “El Kyr.”

Their eyes met and he observed a shiver shake her small frame. Her already rosy checks flushed. He knew his stare was making her uncomfortable but as long as their eyes met, they forged a connection. In his mind, he could see them together at his home on Reja. He could feel the warmth of her flesh beneath his. He could almost taste the sweet cream he knew gathered between her thighs.

Tearing his gaze from hers, he was not surprised to hear a small gasp escape her lips. He wondered if the connection was as strong for her. Could she feel his wants and desires, their need of each other? Did she understand their connection?
Zar watched her intently, reading the many expressions as they crossed her radiant face. Without Rejan shields, her emotions were transparent and he easily read confusion, desire and a little fear. She watched him silently as she nibbled her sandwich.

“I wish very much to see you again,” Zar whispered hoarsely. His heated gaze following her petal pink tongue as it darted out to lick her pouty lips. Reflexively, the muscles in his stomach tightened. His cock began to rise as his balls constricted at the thought of licking those ripe lips.

Excerpt: Savage

Savage releases from Ellora's Cave on November 7th.

Savage, a bounty hunter and half-Rabian shifter, needs a woman. He needs his wife, Alaya.

He’d left her alone on their wedding night three years ago after she’d screamed in fear when he’d become highly aroused and started to shapeshift. Now it is time to face his demons—to consummate his marriage or end it.

Fate steps in, sending them headlong into danger. Seeing her again ignites his desire and jealousy arouses his dominant nature. Using her passions against her, he persuades her to submit to him for all to hear. But even if Alaya can adapt to his feral lust, unseen danger lurks, waiting to rip them apart again.

Excerpt: Savage by L.A. Day
This book is part of the Hunters for Hire series. It is a stand alone book.

Savage groaned as he rolled his leggings down his thighs. He stretched hugely, feeling every one of his twenty-nine years. Stepping under the warm water, he threw his head back. It had been a long month chasing after Uber Te’lk and he was glad to be back at the Web. Of course, Ulric would chew his ass out for the D.O.A. but Uber had left him no choice. Either way, the bounty was the same. Unfortunately, dead men couldn’t talk, so they wouldn’t be getting any information on the Cintealios Nation from him.

Flexing his shoulders, Savage relaxed as the hot water streamed over his body. Water conservation be damned, he’d conserved for the last month. Facilities on The Viper were primitive at best and the remote rocks he’d scoured for Uber were even worse. If it weren’t for the substantial pay and the freedom, he’d have left this line of work long ago.

Bursting a ball of cleanser in his hand, he began to lather his chest. The fresh scent of roses wafted from the soap. “Real fuckin’ funny,” Savage muttered to himself. Someone had switched his cleanser with a perfumed variety. He’d bet his left nut it was Zeri, the newly hired cook for BHI. She seemed to take perverse pleasure in tormenting the hunters. She knew no one would retaliate or she’d spill their darkest secrets.

Why Ulric hired the witch to work at Bounty Hunters, Inc., nobody knew. Maybe, she had something on their illustrious leader too. She wasn’t bad to look at but few dared to look too close. She made everyone uncomfortable. For the most part, the hunters stayed to themselves. They all had pasts that were better left alone. Zeri was a telepath and before Savage realized her abilities, she’s discovered some of his secrets. Ever since, she’d found little ways of tormenting him.

The soap was a prime example. She knew the scent of roses reminded him of his wife, Alaya. Savage’s hand lowered to his cock, lathering the lengthening flesh.


It was a bitch that just the scent of roses made him hard. He couldn’t continue like this. It was time he did something about the problem. It was time he got the situation in hand.

A low groan escaped his lips as his fist pumped his turgid rod. He growled. The witch probably knew what he was doing right now.

However, it wasn’t Zeri’s face that filled his mind as he stroked his shaft. Long, red-gold tresses and laughing, green eyes tormented him. Ruby red lips parted and his ache became more than physical.

Closing his eyes, his mind turned three years back in time.

“Make love to me, Dean.”

He raked his thumb across Alaya’s full, bottom lip. Heat engulfed him as her green eyes shimmered with unshed tears. “You’re too young.”

“I’m not.” Her full breasts pressed up against his naked chest. The thin material of her gown did little to hide the tightening of her nipples. “You’re my husband. It’s your right to take me.”

Excerpt: Dancing For The Wolf

Dancing for the Wolf by L.A. Day
Available at Cobblestone Press on October 26th.

A secretary learns to belly dance to impress her Greek boss. She doesn’t realize she’s dancing for a wolf.

Sighing, Jenny stretched on the luxurious, heated seat. She’d never been more appreciative of Damon’s taste in cars. The engine purred as he merged into the heavy downtown traffic. “I’m glad the windows are tinted.”

“So am I. Take off your top,” he demanded.


“You have no idea what you’ve done. Offering yourself as my sex slave, complete with a whip.” His eyes flashed from the traffic to her.

“It was a joke.” She wiggled in the seat seeking a position that would ease the ache in her pussy.

“I’m not laughing and neither were any of the other men in that room.” Damon whipped the car into a nearly empty parking lot and killed the engine.


“You called me Master, earlier.”


“It’s too late, you let the beast out and he wants to play.”

The coins on her halter jingled as he pulled her into his lap. The steering wheel at her back trapped her close against him. His strong arms engulfed her sliding her sensuously against his firm chest. Jenny struggled to breath, the heady scent of arousal hung heavy in the air. “Damon,” she groaned.

Burrowing under his jacket, her hands skimmed his heavily muscled chest. He was hairy. She could feel it through his silk shirt. Shifting, she tried to get closer. “The whip is digging into my side.”

A husky chuckle erupted from his lips. He brushed the tail of the whip against her arm. “That’s not the whip.”

“Oh!” She felt heat rise in her cheeks as her pussy gushed with need.

He shifted beneath her. “Damn it, I wish we were anywhere but in this car,” he groaned. Wrapping a hand in her hair, he tugged her head back and took her mouth in a kiss that was almost brutal with intensity.

There wasn’t an ounce of protest in her as she spared with his tongue. A growl rumbled in his chest as he devoured her mouth. Turning her on his lap, he rubbed his erection against her bare stomach. His other hand cradled her left breast as his thumb dipped under her halter-top. Grasping his shoulders, she groaned under his lips as undiluted heat roared through her veins settling between her rapidly dampening thighs.

Jerking her mouth from his, she gasped for breath.

Damon rested his forehead against hers as his chest rose and fell rapidly. “I knew you’d be amazing,” he groaned.

“We’re amazing, together.”

Tilting her head, his hungry gaze pored into hers. “It’s only going to get better.”

“I can’t imagine,” she panted.

“I want you to dance the thifteteli just for me. I want you to dance it naked and let me see these breasts bounce and jiggle as you move.” Both of his hands moved to cradle her breasts.

Jenny groaned. Her body melted under his touch.

“Then, when you bow and offer yourself, I’ll take you as never before. I will make you irreversibly mine.” Sharp teeth nipped her neck.

Out of touch!

Do you ever feel like you are out of touch? That's how I've felt the last week or so. I've been sick and working on a sci-fi project. The sci-fi has been fun. It's always great to create new worlds but it's not so fun when you're sick. I've had zero creative energy. Feeling better today though so I'm off to work on my latest WIP, Feral Intensity, it's the third book of my feral series.

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
4. You should not confuse your career with your life.
5. A dog wants only to please its owner. A cat wants you to please it.
7. Never lick a steak knife.

13. There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2030, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Excerpt of Dancing for the Wolf!

Dancing for the Wolf by L.A. Day
Available at Cobblestone Press on October 26th.
This is a shape shifting erotic tale.

A secretary learns to belly dance to impress her Greek boss. She doesn’t realize she’s dancing for a wolf.


Peeking out from her spot behind the potted plant, Jenny Lad saw him as he entered the room. He would be hard to miss even in the room full of a hundred people or so. At six-four, dark and gorgeous, Damianos Alexander, Damon to those who knew him, stood out in any crowd. As president of Alexander Marketing, he didn’t dress up for the company Halloween party. Still, he looked completely comfortable, at least on the surface.

Alexander Marketing Inc. had recently landed the long sought after account of Just Novelties and what better way to celebrate than with a Halloween party. Halloween was Just Novelties bread and butter and the new advertising scheme opened last week. So far, it had passed with flying colors. Halloween was two days away and Just Novelties was already showing a boost in sales over last year. It was the perfect time to celebrate.

Jenny had been planning this event for the last two months and she was determined it would be a success. She had just thrown her resignation on Damon’s desk but that didn’t matter. This party would be the talk of the town.

Nervous tension wired Jenny as a buxom vampiress approached Damon. “Silicon on display,” she muttered. She glanced at her own cleavage. At least hers were real. She tugged on the small halter. It wouldn’t do to have a nipple pop out during the performance.

Looking back toward the door, her eyes roamed her previous employers form hungrily. She gasped as he turned in her direction. The deerskin flogger she’d left for him hung from his belt. She wished she could have seen his face when he opened the box. The enclosed note told him it was part of his costume as master of the harem girl. With his Greek god looks, he looked the part but could he play it too?

If tonight’s stunt didn’t work, she might never see him again but she couldn’t live off crumbs forever. At thirty-one, she wasn’t over the hill but she’d taken a few steps up it. After tonight, he’d either see her as a woman or he’d see her no more. Last week she’d received a job offer from a prestigious marketing firm. Initially, she’d refused but she’d been asked to think about it a few days, and she had. Things couldn’t go on as they had been. Her feelings for Damon made it impossible for her to continue working for him. She wasn’t naive or stupid. She knew Damon was attracted to her but how deep the attraction went, she was unsure. By quitting her job, she hoped to give them both a chance to explore their feelings, if Damon was interested. Either way she’d know before the night was over. Whatever the outcome, she would go on from there.

The slow rhythmic drumbeat began, and Jenny’s knees began to quake. She took a deep breath and exhaled. She could do this. The past six months of lessons wouldn’t go to waste. Damn good! That was what her instructor called her. Not perfect but good enough to impress most. She intended to impress Damianos Alexander tonight in more ways than one.

Running a hand over her bare stomach, she felt the abdominal muscles she’d worked so hard to acquire. Squaring her shoulders, she stepped into the room swaying to the beat of drums. Clicking her cymbals in unison to the movement of her hips, she managed her first graceful turn on her three-inch stiletto heels.

Concentrating on the music, she barely heard the gasp of appreciation. However, there was no missing the zing of adrenaline as the heat of Damon’s gaze landed full force upon her. She felt more than saw him move closer, until he stood at the edge of the gathering crowd.

Fueled by an overdose of untapped lust Jenny managed to stay in perfect rhythm as the tempo increased. Panting slightly behind her thin veil, she spun around presenting Damon with a perfect view of her ass as the music reached crescendo. She didn’t focus on anyone in particular. Instead, she allowed the room to be a blur of costumed people. Spinning once more, Jenny bowed at Damon’s feet as the music came to a finale.

Standing up, Jenny kept her head bowed and her gaze lowered in the demure pose of a harem girl as she asked, “Did I please you, Master?” Her voice was husky from exertion.

Damon was ready to go up in flames. If they weren’t in a room full of people, he would tell her exactly how to please him. After finding her resignation on his desk, he almost didn’t come to the party. After opening his costume, he had no choice. The flogger had intrigued him, as she knew it would. The little vixen thought she knew him well. She was about to find out, he had a few secrets. Little did she know, she’d just solved a huge problem for him and he couldn’t be happier.

He’d been at a loss at how to handle his developing feelings for his secretary. Now, he didn’t have to worry. She’d resigned. In his book that made her fair game. She’d just put herself on the endangered species list. She might not realize exactly what she was getting herself into but she would adjust. She had no choice. She was his ellinitha, his woman. She didn’t know the consequences of offering herself publicly but he did, and so did many of the guests. If he didn’t take her up on the offer, other males would fight to have her. The only reason she’d remained safe among them was that no one dared to cross him. He’d marked her as his the first day she walked into his office over two years ago. It was a claim he was unwilling to give up.

The room was deadly silent. During her dance, he’d removed the flogger from his belt. It crackled as he slapped it on his palm. It pleased him to see her start at the controlled violence of the action. He allowed the feathered tail of the whip to caress her check. He slid it lower across her breasts and abs. Her stomach muscles quivered. “I found it quite pleasing. Later, you may perform for me in private, and I will give you your reward, my ellinitha.”

Jenny demurely muttered, “Yes, Master.”
