He didn’t expect an alien
to have such honor.
He didn’t expect
to trust her.
And he didn’t expect
to fall in love…
Excerpt from For Women Only
The Antonello Brothers Science Fiction Romance series is Sci Fi from the sweeter side of the galaxy.
He didn’t expect an alien to have such honor. He didn’t expect to trust her. And he didn’t expect to fall in love…
Khyff snuggled deeper into the pillows. The slick coolness of the sheets soothed his skin. The quiet lulled him. “So nice to be home.”
A steady thrumming sound vibrated through the pillows.
Khyff frowned, not opening his eyes. “What the–“
Whap! Something fuzzy laid itself across his mouth. He grabbed it with one hand, felt its length. Furry. Long. Skinny. This feels like a tail.
A gray tabby cat meowed in his face.
“Aaack!” Khyff tumbled off the bed in the opposite direction and got to his feet.
The cat arched its back and hissed.
Khyff scrambled away backward. “Shoo! Go away! Shoo!” He made motions with both hands.
The cat jumped off the bed and padded, tail high and twitching, toward the partially open door. It paused and looked back before exiting.
Khyff rubbed his face with both hands. How’d a cat get in here? He went into the bathroom. The items on the shelf over the toilet looked out of place. Is this Senth and NarrAy’s bathroom? Since when does mine have bath oil, perfume, and–he leaned closer–feminine hygiene products?
“This room’s pink. I don’t have a pink room in my apartment.” Or a round shower stall and twin sinks. Or pink soaps shaped like cats. Cats? I hate cats. He gulped. “Where am I?”
His nudity suddenly became an issue. He grabbed a fluffy pink towel off the bar and wrapped it around his waist before peeking into the bedroom. Still alone. Good.
His denim pants lay folded on a chair with his slip-on shoes beneath it. No socks or underwear. He dressed. No shirt in sight. Which one was I wearing?
Pink flowers decorated the covers on the bed. The dresser top held a silver brush and mirror set.
“I went home with some woman last night?” He shoved a hand through his hair. “Smackers, I must have been sotted. How’d I even let her touch me?”

Just as he begins a new life safe from the anguish of his past, a young security chief must return to a profession he vowed never to practice again. To save his brother’s life and appease the all-powerful Empress, Khyff must seduce and then betray an alien ambassador. Her people devastated his family. Hatred for the feline aliens burns within him, but unless Khyff can learn to embrace the past, face the demons he swore he’d forget, and find a way to forgive, his brother will die. Khyff will lose the honorable and gentle alien female he has come to love and trust — and the Empress will see to it that no one in his family will ever be safe again.
He didn’t expect an alien to have such honor. He didn’t expect to trust her. He didn’t expect to fall in love. And he didn’t expect to reveal his betrayal…
