Entering the living room, Mia saw Korum sitting on the couch with his eyes closed. Surprised, she stopped and stared at him. Was he sleeping? Hesitant to disturb him, she just stood there, using this rare opportunity to study her alien lover with his guard down.

With his eyes closed, the bronzed perfection of his face was even more striking. High cheekbones blended synergistically with a strong nose and a firm jaw, forming a face that was as masculine as it was beautiful. His eyebrows were dark and thick, slanting straight above his eyes, and his eyelashes looked incredibly long, spread out like dark fans above his cheeks. His hair had grown in the month that she’d known him – he’d probably been too busy chasing after the Keiths to get a haircut, Mia thought wryly – and it was starting to brush against his ears.

As though sensing her gaze on him, he opened his eyes and smiled when he saw her standing there. “Come here,” he murmured, patting the couch next to him. “How are you feeling?”

Mia blushed slightly. “I’m fine,” she told him.

He just continued looking at her with a mysterious expression on his face, almost as if studying her for some reason. Feeling a little uncertain about where they stood after yesterday’s conversation, Mia cautiously approached him. Even though she’d spent most of last night writhing in pleasure in his arms, there was still so much unresolved between them. Pausing a couple of feet away, she asked, “Were you sleeping just now? I’m sorry to interrupt if you were . . .”

“Sleeping? No.” He looked surprised by her assumption. “I was just taking care of some business.”

“Virtually?” Mia guessed, and Korum nodded, patting the couch again.

Mia came closer, and he reached out with his hand, pulling her onto his lap. Burying his hand in the dark mass of curls, he tilted her head toward him and kissed her, his mouth hot and demanding, his tongue stroking hers until she forgot everything but the incredible sensations he was provoking in her. Barely able to breathe, Mia moaned, melting helplessly against him, her loins filling with liquid heat despite the fact that she should be wrung out after the excesses of last night.

Apparently satisfied with her response, Korum raised his head and looked down at her with a half-smile, releasing her hair but still holding her tightly in his arms. “You see, Mia,” he said softly, “it really doesn’t matter what labels are placed on our relationship. It doesn’t change anything between us.”

That would be the position of the keepers of the consensus reality that often dominates science. Would ESP be taught if it made huge fortunes.

Does anyone else seem to recognize a bunch of these eyes? I think one or two are Johnny Depp, there's a Megan Fox, a Nicole Kidman, and a few others.

I felt like that too. I sometimes skipped one I had spent too much time on and returned to it later.

Acting? Did the person who put the quiz together decide that the people appeared to be experiencing the emotion in question?

09/28/2014 12:44pm

I would consider this finding interesting, but seeing as I'm a woman and there were no "Flirtatious" or "Interested" males, maybe something is up with quiz.

I think you read her right; that is what I got out of it.

Thank you, Maya! I'll post more tidbits soon while I'm finishing up the book.

More please!!! I just read the first book. Loved it. Liked the fact that Korum didn't fly off the handle with what Mia did. But I guess living over 2000 years can give you a little perspective.

01/03/2013 10:00am

Thanks, Katie! Yes, he can be very patient (sometimes, at least :)).
