Sunday Excerpt — March 16, 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, Gregor is explaining to Kaen why he is different than the “Blood Slaves” that Kaen has had before, and shedding a bit of light on why the two of them lose control when Kaen feeds from him:

“Of course not,” Gregor replied, smiling. “They were not true Blood Slaves.  Let me guess… he — or she – was only in it for the pleasure of your blood-taking.”

“Yes.”

“We call them Blood Whores.  They are as different from what I am as…” He shook his head, at a loss for a comparison.  “The simple explanation is that my blood yearns for a Master:  my family was bred to serve you, and it has been generations since we have had a Master to serve.”  His fingers continued playing with Kaen’s hair and he pulled him down for a long slow kiss.  “In short, I want to give you everything, and you want to take everything.  It is in our natures, Master.”
