The human female tried very hard not to look at him. A tendril of curiosity lifted its ugly spike and Threxin, following it, reached a finger up to catch its sharp tip beneath her chin. He held her there, threatening the fragile skin so that she could not move. Then, slowly, he pressed, tilting her face up beneath the spike of his fingertip.
Her eyes remained down even as her chin lifted, thick lashes splayed over fleshy cheek-mounds, but eventually with a confused and—amusingly—angry look she flicked them up to his.
He almost startled out of it when he saw the black of her pupils expand so suddenly. All at once, in nothing but a blink, the green-brown iris was no longer there and all that was left were two black voids, inviting him to claw inside them and see what was to be found.
Command: Secret Alien Romance is a steamy sci-fi romance and the sequel to Colossal: Dark Romance in Deep Space.
