Tips from Malia Valdese, the heroine of the new Sci-Fi romance novel: SILVER, on what NOT to do when a sexy stranger kidnaps you, claim he’s your mate and demands you let him cherish you.
1. Don’t make it easy for him. Fight for your right to be unmated.
Just because fate decides a being is perfect for you doesn’t mean you have to agree. Don’t give in without a fight. Fate can kiss my behind. I make my own destiny and my destiny doesn’t include a mate anytime soon. Unfortunately, Silver doesn’t like my plans. Oh well, he’ll just have to accept them because I refuse to give in to him no matter how many times he saves me. I mean, if he hadn’t kidnapped me, I wouldn’t be in danger in the first place.
2. Don’t fall for his handsome looks and charming ways. Remember, he kidnapped you.
This rule is very important. Having a sexy male cater to all of your needs seems like an ideal situation. It’s not. Remember that he kidnapped you. You didn’t ask for this. Yes, it’s kind of romantic when he hand-feeds you chocolate. And yes, it’s cute watching a big bad alpha male try to learn how to cook for you. But don’t give in. It’s all part of his diabolical plan to win your heart, which you’re not ready to give. Stand your ground. And don’t eat too much chocolate or it’ll go straight to your hips. Oh, and ignore the butterflies that form in your belly when he says he loves your curves. (P.S. That last bit is hard to do. But you can do it. I believe in you.)
3. Don’t get accustomed to having him around all the time.
Yes, he’ll treat you like a queen and threaten to kill anyone who looks at you wrong. But, that doesn’t mean you have to love him. Keep searching for ways to escape. Don’t get accustomed to being with him, if you do, you will never leave. And you must leave, if only to prove to him that he doesn’t own you. You are your own person. You make your own destiny. Fight with every fiber in your being to remain true to yourself.
Follow these tips and you’ll not only survive being kidnapped by your mate, you may even escape him and return to your regular life. Us females can do anything we put our minds to. We can even escape a pirate ship that is ran by a crew of the nicest maniacs we’ve ever met.
As for me, I didn’t follow the rules. Which is probably why I’m tied to a table on an enemy ship. Yeah, fate has a lot of explaining to do and so does my mate.
All Malia Valdese wants to do is survive in the Outlands and serve food to the patrons of her diner. She doesn’t want anything to do with the handsome silver-eyed stranger who keeps showing up after closing, asking her weird questions and making her feel something she hasn’t felt in years, desire.
She doesn’t care that he’s the sexiest male she’s ever seen or that he stares at her like she’s the main course. Steering clear of him is her plan. Well, it was the plan, before he turned her world upside down with four words…. You’re coming with me.
Apparently she has no say in the matter.
She’s not on the menu. But she’s what he hungers for.
Her scent tells him she’s his and the wanted pictures popping up all over the dark-net tells him he needs to lay low for a while. Having her next to him in bed while he tries to clear his name is the plan. Unfortunately, his enemies are closer than he thought and now they’ve found his weakness…. her. Can he shield his mate from the consequences of his dark past? Or will she flee to his enemies to escape him and the intense emotions he stirs inside of her?
No matter what she chooses, he has no intention of letting her go.
“Yeah,” Silver cleared his throat. “We can talk.” He sat down in his chair and waited for her to do the same.
Seated across from him, she sat with her back ramrod straight and her hands on her knees. “Let’s start with why you showed up at my diner a few wanings ago.”
Oh, she wanted to start from the beginning. Okay. “I was there for you.”
Here goes everything. “Because you’re my mate.”
She blinked. Her mouth opened then closed. Silver waited on her to say something, anything. Her eyes travelled up and down his form and when they returned to his gaze she didn’t seem impressed.
“You’re my mate?”
“Please, try not to sound too happy about it.” His sarcastic remark brought the anger out of her. It also brought her out of her seat.
“What the hell, Silver? You can’t just mate someone just because.”
“It wasn’t a just because kind of thing. Fate doesn’t work like that.”
“I don’t care. You have to reverse it.”
“It can’t be reversed.”
“But, but.” She placed her hand on her forehead. “I think I feel faint.”
“You should sit down.”
“No, I don’t want to sit down. I want to stand up. No, I want to throw things.” She grabbed the first item she saw and turned to him.
She stared at the item then put it back down and grabbed another item.
“That’s yours too.”
A frown took shape on her face. “What’s yours in here?”
“So you married me so you can have my stuff?”
“We’re not married.”
“Married, mated, same thing.”
“No, married people can get divorced.”
“Oh.” She sat the item down then flopped back down in her seat. He hated the defeated expression on her face. “Unlike married people, I simply have to accept this, accept you, even if I don’t want you.”
Her words struck a nerve. She was his mate. She may not be used to his customs, but all worlds had mates. She should know how this worked, know that he didn’t have a choice.
“Is that it, Silver? I have to accept you even if I don’t want you.”
Don’t want him. Like hell she didn’t want him. “When I showed up at your home you were dreaming about me.” Silver leaned forward in his seat. “I was on your mind even as you slept.”
She shook her head. “I would never dream about you.”
“You can’t deny it. I was there. I witnessed it for myself. Do you want me to tell you what I saw?” She looked away from him. That didn’t shut him up. “You had your hand under your shirt and was grinding against the air.”
“No, I wasn…”
“You even called out my name while you fingered yourself.”
“It was just a dream. Our minds…”
“Your body wants me, your mind wants me and soon your heart will want me.”
“Never. I will never give my heart to a male who took me away from everything I love.”
“I won’t. You may as well space me now. Because I’d rather die than allow you to claim me as a mate.”
“Too late. I’ve already claimed you.” Silver stood up.
“How?” Her eyes widened, mouth hung open in shock. “I didn’t give you permission.”
“It’s done. And don’t go trying to kill yourself. I’ll just bring you back and continue being your mate, the male you had on your mind while you were touching yourself in your sleep.” Silver turned to leave the room.
“Wait, you can do that? You can bring back the dead?”
He placed his fingers against the door panel and waited for it to open. He was too angry to answer her question. The answer was no. But she didn’t need to know that.
“Silver don’t ignore me.”
The door slid close behind him. He pressed the red button on the control panel so he could hear what she was saying on the other side of the door. The scanner beeped recognizing his finger print and allowed him to listen in.
“Did the door just lock?” She beat against the door. “Silver, did you just lock me in here?”
It wasn’t like he could allow her to run wild on the ship, trying to space herself.
Silver leaned closer to the speaker. “I’ll return when you’ve calmed down and are ready to talk like a civilized adult.”
“Silver,” she screamed. “I can’t believe you’ve locked me in this stupid room. Some mate you are. I wouldn’t want to be your mate if you were the last, whatever you are, in this galaxy. What are you anyway? Forget it, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know what you are. I don’t want to know you, period.”
“You’re only lying to yourself, Malia. I know you want me.”
“I don’t want you. In fact, I hate you.”
Silver banged his hand against the door. “Take that back.”
Stubborn ass female. Silver turned from the door and headed toward the flight deck. There would be no getting through to her right now. And in his current mood, he would only end up saying something he didn’t mean. Like she’d just done. At least he hoped she didn’t mean it.
“Silver? Silver did you hear me?”
He kept walking. Yeah, he’d heard her. The ache in his chest was proof of that.
