Question of the Week with Stormie Kent

Thanks for having me on your blog, Paloma! Here is my question for your readers:
Are some emotional wounds too deep for even love to heal? 

In my new EC release, Battling Rapture, I have taken two people who were betrayed by the most important people in their lives and thrown them together. They have each learned negative behaviors to cope with their shattered beliefs about love. Yet, neither Niki nor Rhine is what the other expected. Their attraction to each other is undeniable from the start. Will it help them each overcome the scars of their past? Take a peek at the sparks between my heroine and hero, Niki and Rhine. Can tenderness grow out of their volatility or are there some emotional wounds too deep for even love to heal?

Niki is captured by hostile aliens after Earth is invaded. Once a soldier, she is now a slave. She is sold to the highest bidder, and then lost in a game of cards to a tall Ordanian spaceship captain, who claims to have been sent to rescue her. They work together to survive the dangers of the United Universe, while Niki battles her desire for the only man to ever enflame her mind, body and soul.

Captain Rhine’s mission is to reunite the Earth woman with her family. Outmaneuvering beast shifters and a crazed stalker are the very least he is willing to do to keep her by his side. Her touch ignites his passion. Her scent drives his lust. Her strength eases his soul even as she challenges him every step of the way. In the end, Rhine understands, the biggest battle is for her heart.

He pushed a button on the captain chair controls and turned to Niki. He stood. He observed her tense body and intense expression. She gazed back at him. Hostile was too mild for this woman.

“What?” she asked.

His next move wasn’t going to make her any more docile. Before he could think too much about it, he snatched her from her seat and cradled her in his arms. He ran his hands over her back as he made sure to slide her along his front.

“What the hell are you doing? There isn’t time for you to feel me up, you perv.”

She pushed against his chest. Her struggles to free herself helped accomplish his goal and enflame his senses at the same time. Her full breasts pressed and jiggled against him as he clutched her ample ass. It was enough to make him forget his true purpose.

He caught her wrist before her palm connected with his nose.

He spun her away quickly. “I needed my scent to be fresh on you.”

She watched him through slit lids. He forced his eyes from her heaving breasts and focused on what was important. Her wide leg stance and fisted hands. He knew how fast she was. She wasn’t as quick as him, but she could do a lot of damage if he happened to be distracted, which he was. He sidestepped her first pass, moving away from the fist that almost struck his jaw. His right hand deflected her side kick and he used his left hand to grab her arm and jerk her around so that her back was flush against his front.

He crushed both her arms to her sides and jerked her away from anything she could gain leverage from with her feet. He couldn’t resist pressing his face to the crook of her neck and inhaling. Somehow their little sparring session was arousing him more than it angered him. He jerked his face back quickly as she turned her head to bite him.

“Calm down. You will be among strong hyper-sensitives who won’t believe I own a level one exotic and haven’t touched her.”

“Warn me next time, asshole. I don’t like surprises and I definitely don’t want to be manhandled.”

He leaned close to her ear and spoke softly. “You lie.” Her nipples were hard against his arms and the sweet spice of her pussy clouded his judgment. His cock pressed against her back. Her struggles stroked him nicely. “You call me Sir in alien company.”

  1. Thanks for having me as a guest today, Paloma!

  2. Hi Stormie and Paloma! I love the characters in this book, and for me, I have to say that some emotional wounds are too deep to love heal. I have seen it in someone very close to me. I think that person becomes afraid to love. These characters and myself are not afraid. But for Niki, it took a very strong, determined, HAWT, man (Captain Rhine) for her to open herself, not only for him, but for her (spoiler alert) sister. (evil grin) heh, heh, heh.

  3. Thanks Phae! I think people can become afraid to love and also begin to become weary of opening their heart to love over and over after they have been hurt. They can begin to think it isn't worth it. Are they wrong? Should we keep searching no matter what?
