Conjunction by Merryn Dexter
Mycel Laast held himself perfectly still against the conflict raging inside him. The ugly brute bored into him with his slate gray eyes, the hard look of a competent killer. No refinement, no finesse, this man would shoot him without a moment’s pause. Dark choppy hair that hadn’t seen a brush in weeks, if ever, matched the scruff of stubble peppering his strong, stubborn jaw. He’d never kissed a man with a beard, and he suppressed a shiver at the thought of how it would feel against the smooth skin of his cheek. Stop it!
“Mister Lazarus?” The small woman sitting beside him spoke, drawing his reluctant gaze away from the bodyguard, for surely that was his role. An amused smile played at the corner of her full lips as she lounged back in her chair, with an air of relaxation as studied as it was false. She was good at masking, but nowhere near the skill level of one raised in the courts of Elexon where appearance counted above all.
“Forgive me, lady,” he murmured in apology at this inattention. The brute gave a rude snort which Mycel ignored.
“Charming and pretty. Let’s hope you’ve got the credits to back up the package.” She smiled past him, making a drinking motion toward someone behind him. “Cullan?” He assumed that was the brute’s name because the word was aimed toward the man looming above her.
“Not my type.”
It took all his bitter years of training to fight the blush threatening to enflame Mycel’s face. The mocking smile accompanying the barb sent his worst instincts into overdrive. “Could you be any more rude?” Mycel retorted in a haughty, icy voice his father would be proud of.
The brute grinned, a flash of ivory teeth shining in his dark beard. “Absolutely, but you’d need to get on your knees first.” This time there was nothing he could do against the heat rising in his face. And in his blood.
As you all can imagine, I’m hurrying up to pick up my copy, haha! Thanks so much for reading!
With love and pandas,
