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.

What are some other advantages of loving A SciFi Romance hero with retractable claws?

#8Sunday: Missy the Archer ~ Excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #romance #scifi #zombies

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s one last excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse. I’ve received edits back for JAGER, the second book in my Galactic Defenders series, and hope to start sharing excerpts from that next weekend.

Set-up: Last week you were grossed out by the description of Missy’s dad as a zombie. Well, her and RJ have had to leave the bunker to get food and other supplies. RJ has killed the majority of the zombies, but on the way back from the bunker, Missy proves she isn’t helpless.


RJ rushed down the stairs and set the food on the cot. Just as he reached for the last box, snarling came from the area they’d heard the bushes rustle. A cat lunged out and raced toward them. Not just any cat, but a giant white house cat with its fur knotted with blood and half of its face missing.

He sucked in a breath, stunned by the sight. Animals had been affected by the virus as well. Yet the cat didn’t reach them. It thumped to the ground five feet away, an arrow embedded in its skull.

Missy stepped over to the animal, planted a foot on its body, and pulled the arrow out. Definitely not her first time using that weapon.


IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.

#8Sunday: In the Bunker ~ Excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #romance #scifi #zombies

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse…

Set-up: Last week RJ was heading to his bunker with Missy, but her dad stopped them, along with Missy’s zombie brother and mother. Well, they made it to the bunker, but someone wasn’t so lucky…


After RJ pressed the power button, the screen took forever to come on. What started out as a little dot of light grew into live feed of his yard and the zombies in it, all of them wandering aimlessly. All except the one at the door to the bunker. Her father, now one of the undead.

She reeled back at the sight of him, the bone of his right arm exposed through a missing chunk of flesh, muscle, and whatever else used to be there. But, his face was worse. One eyeball hung from its socket while that side of his face drooped past his chin, as if his skin disintegrated and slowly fell off.

And still he banged. He knew they were in there. Instead of wanting her away from RJ, he simply wanted in, to eat their flesh, turn them into zombies as her mother and brother had done to him.

“Turn it off,” she said as her stomach turned.


IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse…

Set-up: Last week RJ finally got his kiss, but they were interrupted by Missy’s mom. The zombies arrive shortly after, and Missy and RJ make a run for it. RJ receives a text from his father (a doctor) saying that a virus has been released in the hospital turning people into zombies and that he should go to the underground bunker in their backyard. Missy is ready to go with him until her dad arrives.


“Dad, you have got to come with us. There is a viral outbreak at the hospital, and it’s spreading through town.”

No way did he want to be in a confined space with that man. But, if it meant getting Missy to safety, he’d suck up his pride.

“I know.” Missy’s father lunged forward and grabbed her hand, yanking her away from RJ. “Your mother and brother are sick. We need to get them to the hospital.”

RJ heard moaning before two figures appeared around the corner. The rest of Missy’s family had been infected all right, their faces gaunt and bodies twitching as they sauntered closer and closer.

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.
