Welcome to another #sffsat snippet! Thanks for stopping by and your comments each week. I have great news - Terms & Conditions Apply has finally released, woo hoo! As of this week you can get it from Smashwords or Amazon - it should be on Kobo and B&N in the (hopefully) not-to-distant future. So I'm continuing with the story this week, and Marie is trying to convince herself that Soren really isn't anything other than a mechanical copy of a man...
But what a gorgeous one, with all those sleek muscles bunching under the silver skinsuit and those waves of blond hair and those eyes…
Marie twitched, stopping her traitorous thoughts dead in their tracks as she seized her kavril. The heat of it through the glass seared her palms but she didn’t care. It gave her a distraction, albeit a painful one.
Soren made a sound of disapproval and drew her hands away from the glass. “Don’t damage yourself.”
She pulled herself free and curled her fingers against the stinging in her palms. “You have no right to touch me.”
“I’m not allowed to permit harm to come to any visitor here. Unless that is what they seek.”
BTW, after questions about it, kavril is the equivalent of coffee. A universe without caffeine just gives me the shudders! :-P
