Commander's Slave - new release!

 
Today is release day for Commander's Slave (Alien Warriors, book 2)! It's a science fiction erotic romance with plenty o' spanking, and it's the sequel to Surrender, although the books can be read in any order. The following excerpt takes place shortly after the first time Betsy meets her new master, Commander Edek:
 
 
A little human woman with flowing auburn hair. Heslla was indeed an apt name. Edek stared at her, trying to decide his next move. He hadn’t expected to find a human in his brother’s house. He’d expected to find quiet and solitude, a time to rest before his warriors returned for training. Lanzo’s gift might have been well intentioned, but it certainly wasn’t welcome.
 
He remained near the door, studying his acquisition. That hair. His fingers tingled with the desire to run his hands through her auburn locks. As much as he liked her hair, her eyes were her best feature by far. Large and brilliantly blue, they seemed to sparkle even in the dimly lit room. She wore a long, plain ivory dress that hugged her form perfectly, accentuating her ample hips and full bosom.
 
A small measure of guilt crept through him. He’d lost control downstairs and frightened the poor girl. Perhaps she hadn’t deserved to be sold as a slave. The Kall justice system wasn’t without its flaws. The fact that slaves were sold anonymously only proved that.
 
The hatred he’d felt initially in her presence faded in small measure as he continued to stare at her. His heart rate slowed and his reason returned. Having never seen a human woman up close, he hadn’t realized they were so little. Or maybe it was just this one.
 
“Come here.” He pointed to his feet.
She paled and stepped backward, tendrils of hair flipping about her face as she shook her head.
 
Edek softened his stance. “Obey me and you won’t have reason to fear me, little human. Now come to me.” He reached out a hand in encouragement.
 
Hope shimmered in her eyes and she took a tentative step in his direction. A few more steps and she reached him, peering up from under thick, dark eyelashes.
 
“Go on.” He waved his hand, urging her to take it.
 
She inhaled a shaky breath and put her little hand in his much larger one. A jolt of energy shot through him at the physical contact and shook him to his core. He was supposed to hate her. He was supposed to want to kill her. Her people had ruined his life. They’d ruined the lives of many he’d loved, and they’d taken away his precious family. Yet her hand felt perfect and silky in his, and a surge of protectiveness for the little human sped through him.
 
He pushed the unwanted feelings down. She was his property. Nothing more.
 
“I need to know your name and the crimes you committed, little human. I’m tired of asking. Tell me now.”
 
“No.”
 
“No?” Edek wasn’t accustomed to being refused anything. His warriors obeyed his every command without question, and now a mere slave dared tell him no. It was unfathomable.
 
“I can’t tell you my real name, but I will tell you that the charges brought against me were false. I didn’t do what the Kall court on Earth convicted me of. I swear it.”
 
He wanted to believe her. He wanted to trust her. Her name though…he had to know her name. Calling her Heslla, as Lanzo did, wasn’t an option. Heslla sounded like an endearment, and endearments wouldn’t do because she needed to remember her place.
 
Taking a deep breath, Edek tightened his grip on her hand and led her to a chair near the bed. He sank down on it and opened his legs, forcing her to stand between his parted thighs as she gazed fearfully into his eyes. He cupped her face with one hand, and she trembled at his light touch. Holy Fires, she was a tiny thing. Even when he was seated on the chair, the top of her head barely reached his chin.
 
“I’ve given you several chances to answer my questions and you still refuse. I have no choice but to punish you now, little human.”
 
 
blurb:
 
Only the fiercest alien warrior can tame her human heart…

After the destruction of the peace treaty between Earth and the invading Kall, First Daughter of the United States Betsy Carson is convicted for crimes she did not commit in an act of political revenge. Sentenced to a lifetime of slavery on the Kall homeworld, she expects the rest of her days to be a constant struggle for survival, and when she finds herself naked on the auction block, staring into the eyes of a disgusting Kall who’s made the opening bid, she prays for anything but the misery and despair of being his. Fortunately, he’s outbid by a gentle, older man, who brings her to his mountain home as a gift for his brother, a fierce Kall warrior who loathes humans and blames them for the deaths of his wife and sons in the war with Earth. Her hopes to be left alone by her new master are dashed when he orders her to sleep in his bed, and she soon discovers disobedience will earn her a firm, bare-bottom spanking from the strong warrior.

Commander Edek enjoys disciplining the spirited Betsy, who grows more eager to submit to his dominance and obey his demands. And he finds owning a petite human slave has other benefits as well. Her silken red hair, sparkling blue eyes, and soft curves entice him to forget the past, and her sweet presence calms the storm of grief raging in his heart. But his new world is shattered when he arrives home one day to find her missing, and Edek’s skills as a Kall warrior are put to the ultimate test…
