A Sneak Peek at Runner’s Hub and the Cover for Shane
The cover for Shane should soon be available. It’s going to be yummy! As soon as I have the image in hand, I’ll be posting it everywhere I can.
Update: Now that I’ve chosen to publish through Loose Id, I know for certain these are not Shane’s eyes. The cover should be available in the next few days (May 20ish, 2016). The excerpt below is from the Loose Id edited version.
Meanwhile, here’s a quick peek at level ten on Runner’s Hub. The Hub is a dangerous place, so keep your weapons close and don’t let the sensual surroundings distract you…maybe a little.
Excerpt from Shane: Marshal of Tallav by Cailin Briste
The quiet of the corridor became the churning noise and thumping beat of what passed for dance music on level ten. A mash of people writhed, grinding to the music while professional dancers did the same on a higher platform running along the inner curve of the room. Colored beams of light whipped across the dance floor, agitating an already frenetic mass of undulating limbs and torsos. The only steady but dim light came in splashes around the outer arc of the room where sleek bars serving expensive drinks alternated with seating areas with tall tables and stools. The dancing thrashed its way past where the club swerved out of sight. A short distance to the left, another set of ornate doors exited the area. Shane led her there.
If the dance club had been an overpowering chaos of sound, lights, and bodies, this next area was different but just as intense. Quiet music with a sensual throb floated in the air. Soft, plush rugs led to sumptuous sofas, chairs, and lounges. Pillows dotted the floor in easy reach. Once the doors closed behind them, the ambience in this space crept over Adrianna.
“This room is called the Salon. See anything you like?” Shane subvocalized.
Adrianna didn’t respond while she scanned the groups of guests in various stages of undress, many engaging in sexual pleasures while others watched. The scene was decadent. Arousal vibrated at her core. There was no straight path. This room, too, stretched its way along the curve of the Hub. Shane took his time meandering, stopping to watch while three men came to completion, spurting cum across the chest and stomach of a small blonde woman. The lust and erotic sensations filling the room washed over Adrianna, and her hips swayed. The sounds of moans, groans, and cries of ecstasy slunk along her spine. If Shane didn’t do something soon, she’d be on her knees, begging him to make her come. She managed to follow until he came to a new set of double doors.
Mm mm mm, what’s behind those double doors?
