This week I’m sharing some hump day, sexy goodness from The Gathering.
The Gathering is a story that I’ve recently contracted through Evernight Publishing for a new series of mine called, The Glorious Guild of Lady Windsurfer. It’s a futuristic, gay, erotic romance with elements of science fiction and steampunk and contains male male scenes, anal sex, frottage, mild violence. Please keep in mind the following has not gone through the company’s editing process yet.

He loved this twenty second century city, the one the humans called Las Vegas. At the traders he could exchange jewels for the currency of the people’s country. In the casinos, he could change out the money for chips, play some games and obtain even more of what they called cash. The ingenious process made him smile, and from what he understood, the practice had been occurring for at least two or three centuries. If he ever decided to stay home and succeed his father as governor, he’d implement the entertainment in his own world. He’d also change the marriage laws and get hitched to a wonderful man. Alexander grinned to himself.
“Your chips, sir.” The dealer slid three orange chips in his direction.
Alexander swept up what would be three thousand dollars once he made a trade for real currency again. Not bad for an hour’s worth of play. Made twenty-five hundred. He pulled from his pocket a black chip he still had left over and tossed it to the man behind the table. “That is for you.”
The dealer’s eyes lit up. He bobbed his head once, tapped it on the edge of the table then dropped it in a box hanging on the side. “Thank you, sir. Come play again soon.”
With a nod, Alexander turned. Miss Goodheart no longer sat at the bar.
He scanned the area for the woman. The throng of people in the low ceiling casino inhibited him from seeing where she could have gone off to or to pick up on her scent.
Alexander wondered what it would be like to not have to inhale the malodor redolence of the humans’ world. That was another tidbit he’d learned—humans’ sense of smell had been bred away during the past couple of centuries, starting not long before the war of twenty-twenty. Perhaps their loss was a blessing.
Striding over to the cashier’s cage, he calmed, realizing he’d see her again. Miss Goodheart didn’t strike him as one who’d walk away from a challenge. He bet she would return to the construction site and pester everyone there until she gained the answers she sought. And when she came back, he’d be waiting. There were quotas to fill after all.
