Thirteen Lines from "Touch Not The Ungloved Cat"

Here are thirteen consecutive paragraphs from my contribution to a FREE erotic short story collection coming Oct. 31 on the Beyond the Veil blog. Enjoy!


His admission did nothing to calm her, and she began pacing the cage, whacking the flats of her hands against the bars, wild eyes searching the steel for any weakness.

“William.” Her tone went strangely flat. “I have to get out of here.”
She paced in ever decreasing circles until she ended up frozen in place in the center.

He cautiously approached the cage, eyes narrowing as he watched her breasts rise and fall, rise and fall. Then stop.

“You have to breathe, love.”

After an agonizing few seconds, her chest heaved.

“It’s a natural reaction. It will pass.”

She wrapped her arms around her smooth, flat belly and turned her light silver eyes on him. “What would you know about my reactions to anything?”

“Because you and I…we are the same kind.”

Eyebrows slammed together. “We are nothing alike. I would have sensed it.”

“No. You wouldn’t. You were raised outside the enclave and never taught the finer skills.”

Suddenly she was at the bars of the cage, lifting her arms to grab a handhold high above her head. “I’ll show you skills. Just let me out.”

Her nipples were tight little buds, and he couldn’t keep his hungry gaze from caressing them. Her warm scent washed over him. Sweet mother of Camma, she was ripe and ready. He wasn’t sure if he’d be able to get her back to the enclave without mating with her.

OK, now you have me hooked. I suppose I'll have to wait until this is out to read the rest. *sigh*

Happy TT!

I'm stealing this idea for next week or the week after for Bloodsprite. I've been trying to figure out how to share some bits of it beyond just another excerpt and this is perfect!

Thanks Carolan :)

P.S. I plan to have my second half up in the files section by Sunday if not sooner. I just need enough sleep to work on it.

Thanks, sweetie. Feel better soon! I know it's no fun trying to work when you're feeling icky.
