Isn’t it funny how you can plan something down to the second and the moment it’s time to execute the plan, everything falls apart? Okay, so maybe it’s not funny. This is what happens to Anika. She only had one job: capture the most wanted male on her planet.

She was so close to accomplishing that goal when something unfortunate happened. He ended up capturing her. Talk about the worst day ever! Enjoy this excerpt from, Falling For The Succubus.

I can’t believe he tied me up. I try to move. The rope bites into my wrists. The pain is minimal thanks to the Neptocaran. The fact that I’m feeling any pain at all lets me know the drug is wearing off.

The syringe and vial is in my backpack. I doubt my big moody captor will be willing to inject me with it. I move my arms again, hoping to loosen the rope. When I get out of here, I am going to Taser his ass so good his teeth will rattle. The Taser is in my backpack also.

“If you sit still you’ll be more comfortable.”

I follow his voice. He’s standing on top of the loft, staring down at me. He’s removed his dark jacket and is now clad in a black T-shirt and black pants.

“Be still Anika. I want you to be comfortable.”

“Shut the hell up.” If he was truly worried about me, he would free me.

“I’m only trying to make you more comfortable.”

“If you want me to be comfortable, let me go.”

“Never.”

“Never?” As in never ever forever. My kind lives a long time, so does his. Surely, he’s not going to keep me forever. “What do you mean never?”

“Never means…”

“I know what never means.” If I could kick him, I would. “What I don’t know is why you won’t let me go.”

“The last time we met, I told you if you kept searching for me, trying to arrest me, that I would take you and never let you go.”

“But…”

“You kept searching.”

“I know, but I didn’t think you would…”

“You now belong to me.”

“As your prisoner, your slave?”

He stares down at the ladder next to him. Oh stars, is he really going to hold me forever as his prisoner? I’m not prisoner material. I don’t like being tied up. I have to feed on a regular basis. I’d rather die than be held captive for the rest of my life. I’m starting to panic.

“You cannot keep me here as a prisoner.”

“I have no intention of doing that.”

Good. “So, you’re going to let me go?” I know I sound like a weak damsel in distress. That’s exactly how I feel right now and I hate it.

“No, Anika. I am never letting you go.”

“You just said you wouldn’t keep me here as your prisoner.”

“I will not.”

“Then what…”

“I will keep you here as my… as mine.”

“What the hell does that mean?”

“It means you’re mine.”

“Your what?”

“Mine. That is all. I am done discussing it.”

“But…” I am so lost. I have no idea what he’s talking about. I don’t even think he does. How am I his? His what? He said I’m not his slave. He said I am not a prisoner. What the hell am I then? “Are you going to ransom me to my father?”

“No.”

“Why not? He’ll pay whatever you ask for.”

“There’s no amount of currency he could give me that would make me give you up.”

Uh, wow.

Her name is Anika Kaleen. She’s a galactic bounty hunter.
My enemies call me Death. I’m her target.

Falling for her should be the last thing on my mind. Yet, she’s all I think about. It’s ironic that the only female I want, wants me dead. She’s no match for me. Her pride drives her to continue searching for me. My feelings for her keep me from ending her life and putting a stop to this madness.

I’ve tried warning her away. I’ve tried scaring her away. Nothing is working. The only thing her determination is doing is making me want her more. I told her to stop hunting me. I told her if our paths crossed again, I would take her. She didn’t listen. She never listens. But I always keep my promises.

She wants me dead.
I want her… period.
Let’s see which one of us completes our mission.

  1. Your story prompted a fun little flashback to when I was teaching computer skills to a bounty hunter. Very friendly guy: short, skinny, no tattoos. After class one day he took me to a biker bar, where we met his sister and partner: short, skinny, barely of age (if indeed she was). Their MO: She seduced their marks, and while they were ‘indisposed’ he swooped in and arrested them.

    As a guy who in his youth spent a couple years as a fugitive from the law before charges were dropped, I’m glad I never had this pair on my tail. Although it might’ve been interesting…
