When love is forbidden, the whole world’s a prison.

BLURB

Dylan Moore will do anything for freedom. Seven years ago, a gay plague spread to heterosexuals, killing millions and sparking brutal anti-gay riots. The Guardians rounded up men who tested positive for the homogene and imprisoned them in remote quarantine centers like desolate Camp Malheur. Since then, Dylan has hacked the camp’s security systems and hoarded spare bits of electronics, seeking some way to escape. He has concluded the human guards are the only weakness in the facility’s defenses.

Camp guard Rafe Cowell is H-negative. He figures the lust he feels watching prisoner 3218 masturbate on the surveillance cameras must be due to his loneliness and isolation. When he finally meets the young queer, he discovers that Dylan is brilliant, brave, sexy as hell — and claims to be in love with Rafe. Despite his qualms, Rafe finds he can’t resist the other man’s charm. By the time Dylan asks for his help in escaping, Rafe cares too much for Dylan to refuse.

Dylan’s plan goes awry and Rafe comes to his rescue. Soon they’re both fugitives, fleeing from militant survivalists, murderous androids, homophobic ideologues and a powerful man who wants Dylan as his sexual toy. Hiding in the Plague-ravaged city of Sanfran, Dylan and Rafe learn there’s far more than their own safety at stake. Can they help prevent the deaths of millions more people? And can Rafe trust the love of a man who deliberately seduced him in order to escape from quarantine?

Note: This novel was previously released by Pride Publishing under the title Quarantine. It has been revised and re-edited for this release.

EXCERPT

Rafe read the conflict in Dylan’s face. Pleasure versus responsibility. Instant gratification balanced against long-term risk. Lust versus love.

The ex-guard held his breath. His pulse pounded in his temples. If Dylan chose this anonymous fuck, that was the end for the two of them. He couldn’t share—he didn’t have it in him. Anger leached away, replaced by fear and a vision of future sorrow—a life on the run, an empty existence, without the one thing that he cared about…

“I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to lead you on.” Dylan sidled up to Rafe and slipped his arm around the black man’s waist. “We don’t play outside our relationship. I hope you can understand.”

Rafe relaxed slightly. Relief flooded through him. He hugged Dylan to his side, noticing the damp heat of the other man’s skin even in the midst of the drama.

Something flickered in the stranger’s eyes, some strong emotion Rafe couldn’t identify. “Are you certain?” His rampant prick swayed back and forth, tempting them both. “I guarantee I’ll give you a fuck you’ll remember for the rest of your life.” He peered at Rafe, obviously judging him. “I’ll do you both, if you like.”

“Sounds fabulous, but I’m afraid I have to refuse.” Dylan favored the man with one of his winning smiles. “I’m sure you’ll find someone else here to take you up on your offer.”

“You’re the one I want.” He stabbed at the air with one finger. “And I’m used to getting what I want.”

“Sorry, not this time,” said Rafe, letting some smugness into his voice.

The stranger ignored him. He reached out to stroke Dylan’s cheek. “If you change your mind, gorgeous, I’ll be in the steam room.” He turned on his heel and strode out, not waiting for a response.

Rafe released a long, slow breath. His muscles were in knots. “What a bastard!” he muttered.

“Oh, I don’t know. He struck me as very civilized. Quite attractive, too.” Dylan grinned up at him. “I’m teasing, silly! I’d never choose him over you.” He pulled Rafe’s mouth to his and gave his a solid kiss.

“Oh, yeah? You looked tempted.” Rafe was still on edge.

“Only a little. Honestly, when he started rimming me, I was so confused and horny I didn’t know what to do. It wasn’t a decision. It just happened.”

“Don’t let it happen again.” Rafe realized he sounded like a bastard himself. He softened his tone. “Please, Dylan. The thought of you with somebody else—I can’t take it. I’m sorry, that’s just the way I feel.”

“No, I’m the one who’s sorry. I should have warned you about the rules and conventions here. I could see you were nervous. We should have found a private room.” They seated themselves on the tiled shelf. Dylan rubbed his cheek against Rafe’s shoulder like a cat marking his territory, then licked his way across Rafe’s chest to his nipple.

An Immortal King in Exile Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire by @kayelleallen #SciFi #SpaceOpera

We’re thrilled Kayelle Allen has stopped by today for an interview! For readers who don’t know, Kayelle founded and shepherds Marketing for Romance Writers, a source of superb information, support and opportunities for authors. She’s also the artist who designed the marvelous header and logo at the top of this page!

INTERVIEW

Adriana, thank you for inviting me to share my immortal king and his story with your readers. I’ll jump right in to a short interview about the hero of this series. I have an excerpt also and at the end, a giveaway for everyone.

Why did you call this series Bringer of Chaos?

Pietas is an Ultra, a scientist and warrior who was genetically designed. He’s immortal and believes himself to be unbreakable, yet he has the most vulnerable, tender heart. He thinks he’s grown immune to love. In this book, he discovers he isn’t. Every Ultra has specific psychic and physical gifts. Pietas commands thought processes and can cast confusion, disarray, and fear. The gift is called Chaos, and he’s a master. His own people gave him the nickname Bringer of Chaos.

This is a good place to give us the blurb for this book.

When the immortal Pietas is marooned on a barren world with no food and few survival tools, he knows it could be worse. He could be alone. But that’s the problem. He’s not.

Half a million of his people sleep in cryostasis, trapped inside their pods and it’s up to Pietas to free them. He can’t release one at a time. It’s all or nothing. He’s facing over five hundred thousand hungry, thirsty, homeless immortals will call on him for rescue and he has no way to answer.

It’s not all bad. The beautiful telepathic warrior he’s loved for lifetimes is at his side. He’s bonded with a sentient panther. He hates humans but the one dumped on this planet with him has become a trusted friend.

Before Pietas can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, he must take back command from a ruthless enemy he’s fought for centuries. His brutal, merciless father.

Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever…

What inspired you to create the series?

I’ve had the idea rattling around since I was a teenager. The Bringer of Chaos series steps back in time from my current story universe by several thousand years. I wanted to understand Pietas and I figured the best way to do that was to write his story. Once I finish the next book in this series I will jump back into the Tarthian Empire and write more books there.

Describe the main character.

Pietas has platinum blond hair and teal blue eyes. He’s seven feet tall, slender but incredibly resilient and strong. He has a twin sister who looks nothing like him. Dessy has black hair and eyes the color of a stormy sky. She is his opposite in attitude as well. The motto of Pietas is “Honor. Always.” Dessy’s is “Winning is everything.”

Is there anything unusual about your hero?

His personal code of honor requires Pietas to always tell the truth, no matter how uncomfortable. He makes no attempt to be cruel about it, but he will not bend the truth. At times, he omits details rather than lead a person to a conclusion he could have covered up with a lie. He will find a way to rephrase an answer or outright change the subject. His honor means more to him than life. If there is one force that drives Pietas, it is honor. He does the right thing, even if no one else will ever know.

Does he have any quirks?

Pietas does not use vulgar language. He’s a soldier and hears swearing in the trenches, but to him, such language is a mark of the uneducated. For that reason, there is no profanity in this book.

What was his childhood like?

I don’t think he had one. Although he was born like a human, his parents were not. Like all Ultras (other than Pietas and Dessy), they were created fully grown. They had no idea how children should be treated. I won’t say they did their best. The twins’ father reared them more like a science experiment than people and his mother, while she loved them, did little to protect her children from their abusive father. From the time they could hold a weapon, they were taught to kill. The topic at dinner was often, “Tell us a new way to kill humans.” Small wonder Pietas grew up hating humans. It was as natural as breathing.

How does he view himself?

Pietas is powerful and beautiful and he knows it. He acts conceited, but that is a front for his enemies. In reality, he could not care less what he looks like. He chops his hair with a dagger and takes no credit for his appearance, other than his uniform. His father created Pietas to be as perfect as possible, including his looks. He lets his father take the credit for that. It was nothing he earned.

Would you like a peek at the immortal king’s vulnerable heart? In this scene, Pietas has been playing with a sentient panther, a huge animal he calls Tiklaus. The name means “Loyal Warrior.”

EXCERPT

Tiklaus batted at him, knocked Pietas onto his back and then flipped itself down beside him. The panther wrapped its front legs around his arm and gnawed at it in gentle play while the hind feet kicked him without injury. Claws flashed, but did no harm.

Now I know how a chew toy feels. Pietas blew out a breath.

When the panther draped itself over his chest, he struggled to slide out from under but could not get up. The animal weighed less than he did, but with no visible effort, it kept Pietas from rising.

“I concede, my friend. You win.”

The panther ignored him.

“Tiklaus, off.”

Nothing.

“Off, please.”

The panther yawned, opening a huge maw. Fangs flashed.

Pietas tried a signal that worked with sparring partners and asked for release by double-tapping the panther’s side.

The cat stood at once and stepped over him. It shook from nose to tail, then sat and groomed itself.

He stood and brushed himself off. Standing beside Tiklaus, who reached him mid-thigh, Pietas took pride in knowing this sweet, playful cat was also the snarling ball of animal rage that had nailed his father to the ground. Mahikos had not seen it coming.

Pietas should have let the cat eat him when he had the chance.

After ensuring no one was on the path in either direction, he knelt and scratched the cat’s ears. “Who’s a good kitty?”

The animal sneaked in a lick of his hand and face and flopped down on its back.

“My Tiklaus, that’s who. Tiklaus is a good kitty.” He rubbed the smooth belly. “Yes, you are! Such a good, big kitty. You’re my kitty, aren’t you? Good, good kitty.”

The panther accepted the attention, one paw twitching. After a moment, it stood and shook itself. A purring sound rumbled from its chest. It sat, licked one paw and added a lick of Pietas’s face as well.

He chuckled. “Thank you for the bath.” He hugged the panther’s neck. “You have as soft a heart as I do but you don’t show it either. Pact, my friend. I won’t tell if you won’t.” He kissed Tiklaus on the nose.

The panther bumped its head against Pietas, then bounded to a tree and up it.
