So my brilliant artist, Sammi Griffin, was at it again and created yet another incredible commission for my characters. This time, she brought Nemon and Joanie to life visually with one of the most beautiful scenes I’ve ever had the privilege to see, and I’m so stoked! If it seems like I’m exaggerating, I’m not! Just take a look!
If you’re wondering what book this scene came from, it’s The Kraken’s Mate
A desperate escape from a prison cell inside an alien research facility leaves Joanie in the clutches of an alien with a handsome face, a great body, and tentacles that could have come out of a horror movie. Her life back on Earth is a mess, but nowhere near as complicated as her new situation becomes when the alien test subject named Nemon decides that she’s his mate.
Nemon knows that Joanie is the mate he’s hoping for as soon as Thrax hands her to him, but he can also see that she’s frightened and traumatized. He must win a battle against his own body—which has a mind of its own—to maintain control so he can win her trust and avoid frightening her further. His newfound friends warn him that Joanie will need time to accept him, and Nemon is willing to wait, but they all may have underestimated Joanie.
They have escaped their fate as Iriduan test subjects, but Nemon and Joanie can’t escape the legacy left behind by their captors. A legacy that brings them together—a legacy that also threatens to tear them apart.
