Felix and Casey: Their First Meet

My Sexy Saturday

This week’s theme for My Sexy Saturday is “You’re So Sexy”. It’s all about the sexiness of characters, how they relate to each other and how they relate to us as readers. We all love those characters, and this week we’re aiming to put them front and center.

Favored by Felix is a new sci-fi romance, which is due out on 13 Feb.

The man walked—no, prowled was a better description for his gait—closer and came to a halt a few feet from her. He flashed a grin full of white teeth, and she found herself returning the expression. A natural smile instead of the conscious ones she forced for her best friend while she pretended everything in her world was perfect.

“Let me see.” He pretended to ponder while his gaze slid over her in a way that made her feel like a woman instead of a soldier. “I’ve heard there is a race of aliens who have a shortage of women. They’re out to steal themselves mates.”

“I’m all a-shiver,” she said, returning his gaze of interest.

There was much to be admired. His black hair hit his shoulders and was three—phrullfour or five times longer than her own black locks. Even in the dim light cast by the astral moon and the resort’s artificial illumination, she could see his gorgeous green eyes. Just a few shades darker than the color of the jade sea that surrounded Ione. His broad shoulders were garbed in a loose white shirt, his lower half in tight black trews and black boots, and he was taller than her six feet by a few inches.

“And what if I’m one of these alien males?” His voice held a smoky tone that reminded her of late nights and smooth aged liquor on ice. He stood close enough now for her to feel the heat coming off his solid body.

“I should start running?” Gods, was that flirtation? She’d thought she’d forgotten how, since one didn’t fraternize romantically with fellow soldiers. She cocked her head a fraction. “Scream for help?”

“You’re lucky, sweetheart. Tonight, all I’m after is a kiss.”

BLURB:

A new resort specializing in capture fantasies—the perfect place for Captain Casey Seonaid to blow off steam. To embrace her feminine side, possibly for the last time. And just as she’d hoped, it’s not long before she finds herself “kidnapped”. Let the sexual hijinks begin.

Attractive yet with an air of sadness, Casey snares Felix Mitchell’s attention at first sight. As feelings deepen, he comes to realize Casey just may be his perfect mate. But despite their shared passion, something is amiss with his intriguing lover, something that keeps her from giving herself fully…something she won’t share.

Unexpected troubles plague the resort, drawing the couple ever closer. But the biggest danger comes when Casey finally shares her secret, revealing a familial enemy—and his shocking plans for Casey’s future.

Inside Scoop: Felix may look big and bad, but Casey knows her shifter mate is just a big pussycat.

Goes on sale on 13 Feb 2015

    Why are the names from Middlemarch Mates (Saber Mitchell, Felix Mitchell) used for the heroes in Middlemarch Capture?

    • Shelley Munro

      Hi Sandra,

      Middlemarch Capture is set in the future, after a virus wipes out many feline shifters. The Mitchell family, (descendants of the Mitchells in the Middlemarch Mates series) leave Earth to find a new, safe base.

      Our Mitchell family includes mother, five sons and one daughter. The mother is the record keeper for the family and a keen genealogist. She names her children after the original Mitchell brothers and her daughter is called Scarlett. This name is taken from Emily’s surname before she became Emily Mitchell. (Saber’s mate in Scarlet Woman)

      I hope that clears things up :)
