Ten Advantages of Loving a Hero with Retractable Claws with @CynthiaSax #scifi #romance #scifirom

Top Ten Advantages of Loving a Hero with Retractable Claws

by Cynthia Sax

Batu, the hero of Dark Warlord, my contribution to the awesome Alien Alphas box set, has retractable claws. I LOVE Romance heroes with retractable claws. I think they’re extremely sexy and there are some great advantages of loving a hero like this.

  • The ability to extend them…or not

Your hero will only extend his claws when they are needed. When the claws are retracted, your hero might resemble any other male. There are no concerns about accidentally being stabbed. You can hold his hand without worrying. Sexy times are much safer.

  • Going from fully clothed to completely naked in mere moments

But sexy times CAN have an element of danger to them. (grins) There can be the stimulating ripping of cloth as your hero shreds your clothing. A tip of a claw on some delicate bits can be…interesting.

  • Control is a must

Because your hero has control. If he didn’t have control, he would have gouged out his eyeballs and cut off critical body parts years ago. You’re safe in his hands. He has claws and he knows how to use them.

  • Protection

One of these uses is protection. Not many beings will mess with a hero with claws. If they do, he knows how to defend himself and you.

  • That yummy beast vibe

While he’s defending you, he’ll exude that yummy beast vibe. The claws are a reminder that he isn’t completely civilized. There’s a savage side to him.

  • That sexy clink-clink-clink of his claws against a hard surface as he wonders what stimulating thing to do to you

He’ll make his beast side known when he’s contemplating what your sexy times will entail. Nothing builds anticipation like the clink of claws against your bed’s headboard.

  • Longer reach

Don’t try to escape him. The claws give your hero a longer reach. This can be practical around the house also. He can reach the higher shelves.

  • No knife to carve the turkey/ham? No problem!

Your hero always has a set of knives with him. He can help with anything that needs slicing. Your hero is THE guy for helping with meal prep.

  • Very handy during arts and crafts

He’s also very handy to have around during arts and crafts. Having learned control, he can slice fabric into precise squares and cut paper quickly.

  • The best back scratches

At the end of a long day, your hero gives the BEST back scratches. You can lie on your front and relax, knowing your hero is taking care of you.

Pets on Frontier Planets and Space Mining Stations #PetsinSpace #bestseller #romance

Hello everyone! Today, I’m spotlighting the last of the Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 stories. They are from authors Carol Van Natta and Alexis Glynn Latner.

Pet Trade by Carol Van Natta
A Novella in the Central Galactic Concordance Series

The vast Central Galactic Concordance strictly prohibits genetic experimentation and alteration of humans on any of its 500 member planets. Unfortunately, animals are not included in those regulations…

Veterinarian Bethnee Bakonin has made a home for herself on a frontier planet in the frozen north. Her minder talent for healing all kinds of animals would ordinarily assure her success, but her unwilling stint in the shady pet trade industry left her damaged and scared.

“Volunteered” for a black-box research project, elite forces Jumper Axur Tragon now has dangerous experimental tech in his cybernetic limbs. He escapes the project and steals a freighter, but ship damage forces him to crash-land in the northern mountains of a frontier planet. He’s surprised to discover the freighter’s cargo contains a secret shipment of designer pets. Determined to do right by them, he enlists reluctant Bethnee’s aid in caring for them—a definite challenge, considering Bethnee is terrified of him.

They will need all the help they can get from their unusual pets to save the day when ruthless mercenaries pose a threat. Can Axur and Bethnee work together to overcome their limitations, or will they lose everything they have vowed to protect – including each other?

MASCOT by Alexis Glynn Latner
A Novella in the Aeon’s Legacy Series

Daya Tattujayan is the manager of a remote and nearly derelict space mining station. She has plenty of problems to deal with even before the interstellar syndicate that owns the station sends an auditor to check up on her work.

Rik Gole is a nomadic interstellar auditor with no roots to tie him down. He is ruthless when he has to be and very good at what he does, but Rik would be the first to admit that a woman like Daya and a place like this station are way outside of his previous experience.

Before Daya and Rik can decide whether they are antagonists, allies, or something more, an unexpected enemy attacks the station. To save their lives, they must dare to trust each other. And they need help from a very unconventional defender—Daya’s mysterious alien pet, the mascot of Star Corner Station.

Birds and more birds in Embrace the Romance #PetsinSpace #books #scifirom

Hello everyone! I’m back to give you a better look at some of the stories included in the anthology. Today, I’m spotlighting the stories by Veronica Scott, Pauline Baird Jones, and Sabine Priestley.

Star Cruise: Songbird by Veronica Scott
A Novella in The Sectors SF Romance Series

Grant Barton, a Security Officer on the Nebula Zephyr, is less than thrilled with his current assignment to guard an Interstellar singing sensation while she’s on board the ship. It doesn’t help that he and his military war bird Valkyr are dealing with their recent separation from the Sectors Special Forces and uncertainty over their future, with their own planet in ruins.

Karissa Dawnstar is on top of the charts and seemingly has it all – talent, fame, fortune and devoted fans, but behind her brave smile and upbeat lyrics she hides an aching heart. When a publicity stunt goes wrong, Karissa finds herself in the arms of the security officer assigned to protect her – and discovers a mutual attraction she can’t ignore.

Trouble continues to plague the pair, driving a wedge between them and leaving Grant certain that Karissa is in more danger than she realizes, from overzealous fans and her own management. Grant is determined to protect Karissa whether she wants his help or not. Can he discover the truth behind what’s going on before he loses Karissa or is there someone else plotting to keep them apart – permanently?

Time Trap by Pauline Baird Jones
A Novella in the Project Enterprise Series

Hiding in time is not as easy as you’d think…

Madison lives by the rules of a time travel rebel – never tell anyone your real name, not if you want to remain alive. On the track of a traitor, Madison and her parrot partner, Sir Rupert, time travel into a trap. Their only way out sends them back in time and into the arms of a man that ignites a fire inside her.

USAF Master Sergeant Briggs is in trouble – not the kind he’d like to be, but still in trouble. He is bored out of his mind! Ordered to recuperate on a quiet bay away from the Garradian outpost, he’s ready to mutiny and go back to his beloved engines. When his friends send him a gift from Area 51, he figures it will relieve his boredom for an hour or so – until he turns it on and he gets his second present of the day.

Madison would love to get to know Briggs better, but it is just too dangerous. Unfortunately, she might not have much choice. With a Time Service Interdiction Force on their heels, can the three craft a plan that will save a base full of geniuses and technology and discover a happy-ever-after forged through time?

Sensate by Sabine Priestley
A Novella in the Alien Attachments Series

Marco Dar’s position as an Earth Protector means he spends an incredible amount of time alone in space. His only company is with the talkative com unit. It isn’t until he stops at the Galaxy Spinner restaurant that he discovers his com has become sentient – and it wants a physical form!

Dr. Zara Mancini hasn’t seen Marco Dar in over eleven years. As far as she is concerned, that still isn’t long enough. When Marco approaches her with an unusual request, she is torn between her fascination with the project, and wanting to leave him eating her space dust.

Marco is quickly falling all over again for Zara’s beautiful smile and gorgeous lips. Young and foolish, he sabotaged their relationship years ago. Now he has a second chance. Can he convince Zara to help his AI, and prove to her that he is a different man?
