Though he was born a prince, distaste for his father’s warmongering drove Hunter to abandon his birthright. Finding a mate has been the least of his concerns, but when his investigation of his sister’s disappearance brings him into contact with one of the most renowned warriors of the Zatari, a woman as fierce as she is beautiful, Hunter knows instantly that she is destined to belong to him. Taming her will not be easy, but he will enjoy every moment of it…
After her closest friend was taken captive and Mira set out to track her down and bring her home, the last thing she expected was to be claimed as a mate by not just any man, but a Delti prince on a mission of his own. Yet from the moment Mira sets eyes on Hunter, she cannot help longing for him to strip her bare, spank her until she submits, and then teach her to surrender completely to a warrior’s hard, dominant lovemaking. But even if he can master her body, will this enemy of her people truly be able to conquer Mira’s heart?
Publisher’s Note: Conquering His Mate is the second book of the Mates of Zatari series. It includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
CONQUERING HIS MATE
Mates of Zatari Book Two
BY CAIRE CONRAD
Our heroine, Mira, is a personal guard and assassin for the High Priestess of Zatari. Mira has been sent to a trader’s moon base, Lunar One, to track down a traitor and bring her home. But Mira didn’t count on finding a man she can’t resist, a man in chains, a man who obviously doesn’t belong in a cage.
Prince turned pirate, Hunter allowed himself to be captured as bait.
When Mira purchases her new “slave” from one of the traders, she has no idea what kind of trouble she has gotten into… Enjoy!
I blinked slowly, clearing my mind of the forbidden fantasy.
The slaver named a price three times higher than any I’d seen that day and I raised a brow. “No.”
His next offer was lower by a third. When I turned to walk away, Nine pulled on my cloak. “Ten thousand.”
That was still too much, but I didn’t have time to continue arguing. I wasn’t here to buy a slave, I was here on a hunt, and it was time to get back to it.
“Agreed.” I reached into my cloak and pulled two thousand credits from my pocket as a deposit. “Two thousand now. Eight when I come back. I want him bathed, dressed in new clothing, and fed. I will return for him.”
The little man took my credits and bowed low over my hand. I was tall, taller than most women, and with the holographic mask I wore, I knew I looked like a thin, severe male trader from Delti. “When will you return, Master?”
I pulled my cloak free of his grasping, clawed hands, not bothering to hide my disgust. “When my business is finished here.”
“Of course, of course.”
“Betray me, Nine, and I’ll kill you.”
“Of course, Master.”
I walked away, but I couldn’t resist the temptation to look over my shoulder one last time. The slave I’d just purchased watched me, his ice blue eyes seeing too much. A shiver raced down my spine and I barely contained my smile of anticipation. He neither looked nor acted like a slave. There was fire in his eyes.
He would be rough, angry, impossible to control.
Claire Conrad is a full time writer and chocolate enthusiast who knows just enough about a handful of topics to dabble in many and master none. She loves a good red wine, traveling just about anywhere, coffee (as long as it’s dark), romance and never met a sci-fi story she didn’t love – including comically horrible “B” movies – much to her husband’s chagrin.
Claire writes sexy alpha male aliens, fantasy lovers and anything else her muse thinks might be fun (or a little naughty). All of her books take a wee little ride on the wild side, so hold on tight. Things are about to get panty-melting hot in here. 😉
