In honor of Susurex coming out this summer, here is a little teaser from the book. Hopefully, it makes it into the final edition. Click "Read More" to get the full snippet.
"I went to the cargo bay after first meal the next day. Seph had pulled me aside in the kitchen to let me know that Vesex would be there once he traded shifts with Hix. He also said that Seethur and Huzzar would be helping to train me. I almost groaned when he told me.
I’d caught something from that kiss. A lethal case of shame and embarrassment. What in the hell had happened yesterday?
You don’t kiss guys who are in relationships, Cecelia! You also don’t kiss one of your only allies on an alien space ship. It was a recipe for disaster.
And what in the hell was that little speech afterwards? Just thinking about it made me want to pull out my hair. It was obvious from X’s expression that he had not meant to kiss me. We’d both been caught up in an emotional moment. X was a good man- uh Susix, he worked hard to care for his nest. He was probably broken up about the kiss. Just for different reasons than I was. I’d been trying to draw a clear boundary while letting him know that we were good. Instead, I probably sounded like a wishy-washy lunatic."
That's all I'm giving you. I hope you're as excited for Susurex to come out as I am!
