Taliz by Alana Khan
Taliz avoids people for a reason… his untamed predator. But when a stranded human arrives, can he restrain his inner beast before his monster decides she’s his prey?
I’ve traveled all the way to planet Hallion to research their winter holiday. Though I came to write a fluffy article for my editor, there’s nothing fluffy about the seven-foot-tall Khal-rah with his tail, fangs, horns, claws, and appetite for the hunt. He’s lethal and powerful and exudes sex appeal. Something deep inside me yearns to run to see if he’ll give chase.
I’ve never wanted a female more than I want Zaydie. Being stranded in a cabin and sharing a single bed means I can’t avoid her scent, her lush curves, or the way her tiny pink tongue licks her full, berry-red lips. And while I want to please the intoxicating female, it would be sheer madness because she’ll want to flee from my beast. No power in the galaxy will help the little Earther run fast enough to escape me.
