Delegate Savea Blackmun lounged against the doorframe, ogling me. She swept her dark glittering eyes from my toes to my head.
“Are you supposed to be my bodyguard?”
Her overflowing breasts strained at the corseted front of her evening dress while her black hair cascaded from an intricate topknot. The sleeves of her burnished gold robe cupped her arms, half-revealing the tiny quatrefoil-shaped shoulder tattoos that signified her status and caste on her home planet.
“I am Sec Anais.” Feeling dowdy in my dun-colored jumpsuit, I offered a small bow. “Councilor Armen of the Chezeray Palace Conglomerate assigned me to you for the duration of your stay at the Levantar Los Ojos Spindle.”
She snorted. “I thought he’d send a male.”
My eye twitched. I’d been warned not to be offended by her ways and speech. Off-worlders from conservative planets like hers often had outmoded ideas. “I am female, but I assure you I am more than capable of protecting you while you conduct your business here.”
She raised an eyebrow but moved away from the doorway and spun into the room, her skirt billowing around her like a cloud. “Come in. I’m not quite ready.” Delegate Blackmun glided into the adjoining dressing room.
I hesitated but stepped over the threshold, the biometric scanner in the door confirming my identity even if the delegate had neglected to ask for it. I closed the suite door, my gaze sweeping the wide glass windows and ornately molded doors, checking entrances and weaknesses despite the fact that I knew this area well. This was my first solo assignment, but I’d been part of details around the hotel all my life.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. Security detail Anais is going solo and is protecting Delegate Savea, But Anais is more than just a bodyguard, she has a keen mind, and is very well versed on the other delegates and their trade agreements. Savea makes use of Anais' mind and her body. An attempt on Savea's life makes her take drastic measures to keep Anais. Short, so deliciously short! 41 pages, 45 minutes, but it carries a lot of weight. Often, in these short stories, a lot is missing: character development, history and the like, but I found this one to have just enough. Just enough to keep me engrossed, enough to leave me interested n these people and their world, enough to have me hunting on Goodreads and Amazon to find out if they have any more books. And enough to leave me sad because I couldn't find any! Savea makes full use of Anais' mind, and body, using Anais' invisibility to her full advantage. But equally, Anais makes use of Savea's body too, doing all manner of enjoyable things to Savea under the table! One thing stopped it from getting 5 stars, even for such a short book. Single. Person. Point. Of. View! I wanted to hear from Savae, of course I did, I always want more but Savea has a lot to say and only Anais is given a voice. I wanted to know what Savea thought of Anais on that first meeting, how she felt about being with a woman after being married, about her attraction to Anais, about how she felt at the news of her father and why she did what she did for Anais at the end. It is, in my opinion, a perfect introduction to these two women and what they have to deal with, WILL have to deal with from now on. I really hope the author will write more of them. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
