Sunday Excerpt — March 2, 2014

More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.

(I am done with beta readers, and Sanguine is in next-to-final-edit stage, so this is still a work in progress and the following lines may or may not have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)

Picking up from last week’s snippet:

“I want you, Master.  I want you to take me, to make me fully yours…”  Gregor drew him close for a soft kiss then stared into his eyes for a long moment, watching for his reaction. “Fuck me, Master.”  He couldn’t keep the plea out of his voice.

“No,” Kaen said, pulling away.  “I will not fuck you, Gregor… But when you are stronger, I will make love with you.”

Gregor smiled, his eyes closing again. “Love,” he murmured.  “That word does not normally come easily to one of your kind.”

  1. Sweet snippet! Gregor’s dreamy, i’m glad Kaen realizes what he’s got.
    And now i can’t help wondering exactly what’s involved in that ‘fully yours’ deal. 🙂

  2. Great 8! Gregor is very brave to be so up front like that. He really knows what he wants. I like how Kaen makes that counter offer, too.

  3. Gregor doesn’t fully understand Kaen yet, that’s so refreshing!

    • No, Gregor doesn’t fully understand Kaen yet. There are times when he’s not sure he’s reading him right, in part because Kaen doesn’t fully understand himself, either.

  4. Nice snippet…ah. the f word. As long as it’s not my least favorite f word…furlough.

    I do love Kaen! Great response to Gregor’s request. 🙂

  6. Interesting snippet. Makes me want to more about the two of them.

  7. This may seem easy now, but I’m betting they’ll have a few troubles along the way? Then again, they’ll have each other to lean on . . . >heaves a dreamy sigh<

  8. I so like the distinction made between fucking and making love. Another great snippet.

  9. There’s more to love than sex.

  10. Very sweet, and I love that the distinction between sex and love is made. Well done!
