Drella tried not to let her fear show – it would be a mistake around scum like them, but it was there, tightening her throat and tasting of acid on the back of her tongue.
“Say it, Drella,” he demanded fiercely. “Tell me what you really want.”
She lifted her chin, and somehow managed to get the words out.
“I don’t want you to leave me. I want to stay with you.”

Delicate! He made a disgusted sound. This girl
was about as delicate as an axe to the forehead.

In my novella, Captured by the Hunter, Jodan is an interstellar bounty hunter, sent to collect a runaway bride. Drella turns out to be a very worthy prey – and much, much more than he bargained for. In this scene, Drella used her feminine wiles to outsmart him, and he’s giving himself a mental lecture over it…
He was slipping. He’d let himself get distracted, and he had no one to blame for that but himself. It hadn’t even occurred to him that the woman could be beautiful. Or that alluring.
He’d heard stories of Inirian women, of course, but he’d dismissed a lot of it as folklore. Being a Prim, he knew first-hand how stories of sexual exploits travelled, and only very rarely did they have a smattering of truth.
He hadn’t counted on her being that beautiful. Or on her obvious attraction to him. He was there to capture her – yet she had still become aroused at his proximity to her. He couldn’t help but react.
He should have helped it. He should have known she’d have a plan to distract him.
Across the galaxy, humanity is being selectively “seeded” onto other worlds. Three women from three different planets find themselves embroiled in a cosmic mystery that will lead them to an adventure…and teach them to redefine love as they know it.
