Cosmic Bliss Release Day
By Stormie Kent
The big day is finally here! I’m happy to have you celebrate the release of my third ebook with me. Cosmic Bliss is a short novel written in the fictional setting of the United Universe. I have an excerpt below.
The buy link for Ellora’s Cave will have it first. The others will show up at each distributor’s discretion.
Earth freedom fighter Shunyuan, vows to rid Earth of its alien oppressors even as he is abducted into space to be a slave. He’s rescued by a band of female pirates, and agrees to sexually pleasure their lovely captain in return for help returning to Earth. He never expected to end up the beautiful alien’s mate—or to find bliss in her arms.
Captain Acia must use a man’s body for sex during the seven days of her fervor or suffer debilitating pain. She makes a deal with Shunyuan, never imagining he’s her mate. She finds herself bound to a captive who wants to return to his world—without her.
Their sensual bond and sizzling passion tie them together even as Shunyuan’s duty to Earth’s rebellion threatens to tear them apart.
The following excerpt is for those readers who are 18 and over only.

This warrior-man fascinated Acia. She felt the fervor, which had subsided some during the battle, flare to life. Heat and tension settled between her legs and her nipples pulled taut. Wetness soaked her panties.
“Keep the tall one, Acia. You will need him,” Cheris said.
“We don’t traffic in humanoids, Cheris.” She blew out slowly, trying to dispel the urge to go to him and rub her body against his.
“Ask him.” Cheris nodded.
The male spoke in a language she could not understand. She needed to calibrate her Language Interpreter. The LI would need to adjust to this new language.
“You want me to ask a perfect stranger, an alien slave, to keep me sexually satisfied while I go through my first fervor? He could be a murderer.”
“What other choice do you have? Go all the way to Dovia? You can’t stop staring. You want him. The fervor wants him. Tell him we will transport them to a friendly planet if he does this for you.”
The fervor flared higher, streaking through her entire body. Tendrils of heat branched out from her core. She’d waited too long to find a man to help her through her time.
Acia took a deep breath to steady herself. “Unchain them, but guard your weapons.”
Acia instructed her crew to adjust their LIs. Acia adjusted her LI as well. There was mumbling among the alien men and women as they were released. Finally she could make out words from their foreign tongue.
“You, warrior, I would speak with you.” She cursed her voice, which she knew sounded as sweet as flowers in a light breeze.
“You’ve freed us.” He stepped closer. “Or is this a trick?”
“There is no trick. But maybe I haven’t done you any favors. You are free to take this vessel and leave,” Acia replied. A new sheen of perspiration released from her pores as she tried to contain the fervor. The presence of a humanoid male made it almost impossible. “My crew and I will be appropriating the cargo.”
He grimaced. “We wouldn’t know how to fly this ship. We would be easily targeted sitting here. Can you take us to a safe place or back to Earth?”
Acia held herself rigid even though her body was demanding she display for this man signs she was ready to mate. If she bent over to let him mount her she would expire on the spot. “You aren’t even in the same galaxy as your Earth anymore, warrior. Passage on our vessel is limited and—”
“There is a way you could pay the way for your people. Of course they would still have to work to earn their keep,” Cheris said.
“No, Cheris.” It was difficult to talk through clenched teeth.
“How would I do that?” he asked. He frowned at Acia’s first officer.
Acia raised her hand to halt Cheris’s next words. “It is not something I would ask of—”
“As the first officer to your captain, you hold rank, but as the woman who raised you, I demand my right to speak.”
Acia clamped her lips together. The other woman had raised her and protected her during their enslavement. Cheris was the person who deserved parenting rights over Acia. She deserved the privilege of counseling her.
Cheris turned to the man. “What is your name, warrior?”
He blinked. Acia could imagine it had been awhile since anyone had asked him his name.
“I am Shunyuan Taylor.”
“Well, Shunyuan Taylor. We are Dovian. Our females go through a stage when they become women called the fervor. Captain Acia is entering her first fervor and needs a man to rut with her for the next seven risings,” Cheris said. Her voice was calm.
Shunyuan Taylor looked from Cheris to her. His gaze started at the top of Acia’s lcin-red hair and passed over the pearlescent whiteness of her skin. She knew he was taking in their differences. The Dovians had pale-white skin that shimmered underneath with a faint silver-and-gold sparkle tones. She glanced at the women huddled with her crew. She realized how different she must look to him from the cream, peach and brown of the Earth women with him.
She was much shorter than Shunyuan Taylor. Her figure was willowy. The females with him were more rounded than she would ever hope to be.
“You are not a woman full grown?” he asked.
Acia’s jaw tightened. “I am an adult Dovian with twenty-four summers. I only become a full woman after my first fervor.”
“If I…have sex with you will be taken to a safe place where we can make our way back to our planet?” he asked.
How could he speak with his jaw clenched so tightly? His mouth turned down at the corners. His entire body was rigid as if she were offering him the highest offense. Maybe she was. Her eyes skittered away from his. Pride wouldn’t allow her to answer him.
“Yes. You will be exhausted when she is done with you. I will even give you some credits for necessities,” Cheris said.
“Parent rights, Acia, parent rights.” The other woman still watched Shunyuan Taylor.
He stared at Acia for a long time. His eyes were intense and not in a pleasant way. “I will do as you ask.”
“Then we have a deal, Earth man. Do understand, if you hurt her, I will kill you slowly.”
Acia bowed her head.
“I understand,” he said.
“Is one of these Earth women your female, Shunyuan Taylor?” Acia asked.
“No.” He paused for a moment. The line of his mouth eased slightly. “You must call me Shunyuan.”
“Shunyuan,” Acia repeated.
“It’s settled. I will take care of our cargo and manage our new guests. Acia, take Shunyuan Taylor to your quarters. You are showing signs of full fervor and should be very uncomfortable by now. Get food and drink for him. There is no need for dehydration.” Cheris turned away to direct the bots as they came into the cargo area to secure boxes.
Acia sighed as she stared at the back of the older woman’s black hair. Acia felt her body loosen and break free from the restraints she placed on it. Her thighs had a mind of their own and slid against each other as she tightened the muscles in her woman’s core. More moisture pooled there as she turned to look at her first sexual partner.
“This way.” She noticed huskiness in her voice that hadn’t been there before. Her walk held more side-to-side sway than normal.
She didn’t know what to expect from him. Would he be as gentle as a Dovian man would? The hard lines of his face and body did not suggest he would be. All she knew was she had to have him. He would be the only being standing between her and mental and physical torture.
