About the Book:

Title: FORBIDDEN DESIRE (Planet of Desire #4)
Author: Robin Lovett
Pub. Date: July 13, 2020
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC (Scorched)
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Pages: 150
Find it: GoodreadsAmazonB&NiBooks, Kobo

Being a sex goddess should be my dream come true—as much sex as I want, with magic powers to heal people, too. Until I realize the enormously strong human I desire most is completely off-limits. My people will put me in prison if I’m caught with a human.

But one encounter together leaves me panting for more. So I kidnap him and take him to an alien sex retreat. I soon discover not only is my big strong human a virgin, his bio-engineering might have made him the largest person I’ve ever seen, but also it made him unable to feel any sensation on his skin.

We’ve got three days to try to heal him with my sex powers before I risk someone discovering us. Then I find out his biggest secret…


Excerpt:
The Fellamana judges handing me my winner’s trophy stare at me like I’ve asked for a moon. They look at my finger as I point to Graven and then back at me and shake their heads in panic.

“No, Niva. He’s human. You can’t—”

“He’s my prize. I claim him,” I declare in Fellamana loud enough for everyone in the stadium to hear. It became so clear to me when I realized all the other acts of the sex games had humans in them, how odd it was that of my seven, I had only Fellamana.

It had to be obvious to the audience as well—the humans and the Fellamana.

The judges look toward the council members sitting in the stands as though for help, and the council members sit stunned and staring at me.

As their sex goddess, I outrank them in every other way. They answer to me. I may be young and less than a month into my power, but as the sole possessor of the power on this planet, I am the goddess, the supreme being, the divine made manifest, according to the beliefs of our people.

My wishes are to be obeyed.

I turn to the stagehands, the ones who’ve been orchestrating the event tonight. I point to Graven once more. “Please bring him up to the stage.” They hesitate, but as I stare at them with authority, they do as I say.   

Graven’s expression is severe, and his already tangled aura becomes a mess of anxiety. I worry for a moment he’ll refuse, that he’ll put up a fight. He’s so large, no one could possibly move him anywhere he didn’t want to go.

But he appears unable to disobey my request. He lets them lead him up the stairs, and he comes to the edge of the stage. He pauses there and comes no closer. We all wait to see what he’ll do.

The hush in the audience, at least from the Fellamana, has also to do with what they see.

Graven’s aura looks painful. It’s hard to see it and not feel his pain. His emotions, if healthy, would visibly flow freely all around him in waves of orange and red—fear and desire. But instead, there are small flickers of orange and red; it’s clear fear and desire are what he would like to experience, but they don’t flow freely. They stop and start in fits and spurts, as though his aura is broken. As though his heart is broken. As though he’s forgotten how to have feelings purely, uninhibited. As though he is blocked by numbness—depression.


I turn my eyes to the crowd. “This is the only prize I want. To heal this human.” With my sex powers.



About Robin:

ROBIN LOVETT enjoys trips to alien worlds to avoid earthly things, like day jobs and housework. When not reading romance with her cat, she’s busy writing sexy books, which may or may not involve anti-heroes, aliens, or both, but almost always enemies-to-lovers. She’s a big fan of her husband who regards writing romance as far more important than practical things, like paychecks. Her favorite surprise in the world, or the universe, was finding out by some miracle other people want to read the same kind stories she loves to write.

In a past life, Robin worked as a professional opera singer who grew tired of playing dying heroines and took up writing Happily-Ever-After instead.

Her ultra hot sci-fi erotic series  releases through Entangled Publishing’s Scorched line in 2018. Her first contemporary dark thriller series released summer 2017 through St. Martin’s Press Swerve, Stranger: A Dark Stalker Romance, Deceiver: A Dark Revenge Romance and Keeper: A Dark Captive Romance.

She can be happily reached on Twitter @LovettRomance and on Facebook. You can also follow her on Pinterest or Instagram or at her author pages on AmazonGoodreads, or BookBub.


For the writers, check out her weekly posts on #RWChat, a Twitter chat for romance writers every Sunday evening. She also writes a monthly romance writing column on diyMFA.com and was a contributor to the former Heroes & Heartbreakers blog. She is represented by Rachel Brooks of BookEnds Literary Agency.

Excerpt:
I watch her make love to them—because that’s what it is. Every kiss of her mouth, caress of her body, and undulation of her hips is an expression of affection. I watch from behind a pillar, like the voyeur that I am. No one knows I’m here. Not that they’d care if they did know. She lifts her head and winks at me.

I freeze in my boots. Staring at her in astonishment, I wonder how she knows I’m here. The corner of her mouth lifts in a licentious smile, and she licks long and languorously up the center of the male’s back who lies beneath her. But she watches me while she does it, waiting for my reaction as though mine is as important as one of her lover’s—or I guess one might call them patients rather than lovers.
When I asked someone her profession a few days ago, her occupation was translated to me as “sex doctor.”

Who knows with these aliens? The Fellamana, they call themselves. Their skin tones change colors with their emotions. Hers is a sensuous, calming sky blue, weaving in swirling patterns across her back and voluptuous curving hips. She isn’t human, that’s for certain.

Gods, I could watch her all day.   

She is. A sex goddess. At least, she is to me. This is my cue to leave.

But she looks at me again, as though she saw me move. She gives a subtle shake of her head, and her eyes send me a soft invitation, as if to say, Don’t go.

I stay, as though commanded. I am so under her spell. I couldn’t disobey her if she ordered me to jump in front of a blaster.

I back away, hoping maybe she will have forgotten about me, but she puts on a sheer robe of glistening material that does nothing to hide her nakedness and is merely a decorative garment, then steps outside the door and beckons me with her hand.

“Come,” she says with her singsong Fellamana accent.

My brows go up, and I don’t know how to respond. “I—um—”

She walks to me, and I watch her finger stroke my bare arm. Though I see it, I can’t feel it. I’m incapable of feeling her touch. My body doesn’t function right, not since the Ten Systems military experimented on me. I haven’t had any sensation on my skin in years. But still, she’s touching me. I gape at her like a teenager enamored with his first woman. It’s embarrassing, but I can’t help myself.

She’s smaller than me; everyone is smaller than me. I’m bioengineered to be large, a colossal weapon, but she holds the power over me. Her lush body is a dream, with full large breasts that flow into her broad hourglass hips. I’ve stared at her rounded, beautiful ass so many times in the last few days, I have to clench my hands against the desire to reach around her and cup it.  
  
She leans close to me, her robe swirling around my legs, ensnaring me, drawing me toward her. “You are male, yes?” she asks with a lowered, seductive tone.

Many of the Fellamana have taken the time to learn some of our human language since we landed here on their planet a few weeks ago. I’m grateful she has, so I can speak to her. “Yes,” I manage.

“What is your name?”

“Graven,” I murmur, staring into her bright green eyes, mesmerized and memorizing them, certain this is my one and only chance to ever be this close to her.

Book Trailer:

Excerpt

A strong breeze shot across the sky as Sarah and Tom followed the pack of balloons over Oxfordshire. Known as the Thames Valley, this lush countryside was a multicolored patchwork of square farmlands crisscrossed by hedgerows and rock walls. The Thames River gracefully snaked through the open fields covered with extravagant mansions built centuries ago. Although most of the balloons headed toward Canterbury, some floated off in opposite directions. By mid-afternoon, most of them had vanished. Tom and Sarah followed behind a few but soon lost them in the hazy clouds. Every so often, Tom gave the balloon a long blast of hot air to maintain its altitude. While they drifted southeast toward London, their main concern was Gowerstone. Peering through the binoculars,

Tom searched for the helicopter.

“I don’t see him.”

“Do you think he gave up?”

“No,” he replied quickly. “He’ll never give up.”

“We seem safe for now.”

“For the moment,” he added with caution.

As Sarah admired the scenery, Tom reached into his pocket to retrieve her locket.

“This really does bring me luck,” he concluded, handing it to her. “Thanks for letting me borrow it.”

“It’s yours, silly,” she smiled, pushing it back. “Just promise you’ll always keep it with you.”

“But

“Promise.”

“All right . . . it’s a deal.” Stuffing it back in his pocket, he felt the piece of paper Patrick gave him and removed it.

“What’s that?” she inquired curiously.

“Before we left, Patrick broke into the Grievouses’ office and looked through my file. He wrote something down.”

“Let’s see.”

Tom opened it. Scribbled across the page was just one word.

“Hmm,” he grunted, expecting detailed information.

“What does it say?” she demanded.

“Britfield.”

“Britfield? What the heck does that mean?”

“How am I supposed to know?”

“There must be more.” She snatched the paper from his hand and thoroughly examined both sides. Dissatisfied, she shook her head. “So Patrick breaks into the office, sneaks your file out, and writes only one word on it is he mad?

“I’m sure he was in a hurry,” his voice deepened, “given that we were planning to rescue you and everything.”

“Then it’s a clue?”

“It’s a name.”

“Maybe it’s your last name,” she suggested encouragingly.

This comment caught Tom off guard. After all these years of having only a first name, it was a lot to digest and felt rather strange.


“Maybe,” he shrugged, not sure what to think
