The Source – Meme #8 – They will defy a futuristic society to reclaim the freedom to love.

logo book hooksWelcome to my blog site and the Book Hooks Blog Hop Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. It’s a chance for all you great readers to check out samples of author’s WIPs or previously published books. I am Christine Murphy, romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series, The Source – A Wild Clan Saga Novel, and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

 

Here is the next meme from The Source for your enjoyment.

His Handler grabbed a crystal pyramid off her desk and threw it at Nathan’s head, but he deftly snatched it from the air and placed it back on her desktop.  Exasperated, Reena sighed heavily. “Companion, your mouth is going to get you in trouble.  You’re supposed to be a gentleman.  The building she lives in is more of a multi-building complex.  There will be plenty to do, and I’m sure with your talented mind you’ll find something to do.”

Smiling wickedly, Nathan knew exactly how to keep a woman occupied.  Because this woman was a top Gen, he was sure she was beautiful and he would just have to keep her under the covers and exhausted with his skills of passion.  If nothing else, it would keep him entertained, at least for a while, before his inner worth went down the toilet further.

Reena evidently recognized the lust-filled expression on his face because she interrupted his musings with,  “No, you won’t.  The fourth and most important rule absolutely and emphatically says you won’t have any form of contact with her.  No touching, no hugging, no kissing, no petting, and absolutely, positively no fucking.  She is to remain untouched, and you’ll abide by that rule.  Do you understand, Companion?”

Nathan shot up from the chair, not knowing what the fuck was going on, but something smelled bad with this one.  He felt like someone was standing over his grave and laughing down at him.  A set up to be sure.  “Reena, is this some kind of sick joke?  Did BioGen fuck up and release a female too soon from the incubation before she was a full grown woman?  Gens might be almost emotionless, but eventually their over-developed sex drive demands release.”

“Companion, calm down.  I asked the same questions.  BioGen indicated she is perfectly normal, although a bit eccentric it sounds like.  And yes, I tried to ask additional questions so you would have the best information to keep her entertained, but I was basically told no further information would be forthcoming other than her location.  Any further poking would cancel the transaction and…”  Reena swallowed, obviously nervous about something before she continued,  “and my license as Handler will be taken away.”

The Source Excerpt:

Right before his lips touched hers, the sound of the evening fifteen minute curfew warning went off. Crystal jumped and Nathan instantly pulled back.

“Damn it. I’m sorry, Crystal, I was so caught up in the moment I lost track of time.”

Grasping at his jacket, Crystal cried, “Nathan we have to get back. This is all my fault. If we get caught after curfew, they’ll take you away and maybe punish you. I should have never talked you into this.”

Tears streamed down her face and she swiped at them in fear for Nathan and for her. BioGen would probably punish her as well, and the things they could do terrified her. She choked, her body shaking, and her pulse rate went through the roof. Nathan seemed to try and calm her brushing the tears away but there just wasn’t any time and she fought to get a grip on her runaway emotions.

“Listen. I can get us back in plenty of time but you need to calm down. Do you trust me?” he asked while he pulled her hood back up over her face and followed up with his own to hide his.

Still gripping his jacket and feeling shaky, she nodded and whispered, “I do trust you, Nathan.”

With an encouraging look he reassured her, “Good. Just hold on tight and I’ll get us back to The Inspire. You just be ready with that magic necklace of yours to get us back into the building so no one will suspect we were ever gone. Ready?”

Crystal took a deep breath and nodded. It was the only acknowledgement Nathan appeared to need and after he grasped her hand in a firmer grip than earlier, he led her back out of the circle of bushes. Once on the path, he sped up into a fast jog and she had to push herself into a full out run to keep up with him. He was fast compared to her and she was panting before they even went a few feet but she was determined to get him back to her condo safely. Together they covered quite a bit of distance even making it to the large crack in the blacktop they had passed earlier. Nathan eased them both around the gap and Crystal began to breathe easier.

Just when she was sure they were going to make it in time, Crystal saw two Nul guards approaching with BioGen uniforms on, evidently making their last rounds. Pulling back against Nathan’s forward progression, she urgently whispered, “Nathan, BioGen guards.”

Immediately, Nathan steered both of them off the blacktop and over to one of the large trees bordering along the path. As soon as they were under the large spread of branches he spun her around and pushed her back against the trunk. The bark was rough but Nathan’s body surrounding and pressing against her was rock hard. He felt good and she felt protected but the Nul’s were getting so close and she could see them watching. She started to shake with nerves because she was sure they were going to get caught.

Nathan shifted slightly blocking her completely from the guard’s view. He leaned against his arm which he had positioned above her forming a protective cocoon around her. He leaned down just enough so he could push her hood back with his free hand and put his lips near her ear. Crystal could feel his warm breath brush against her and the sensation made her shiver for a different reason.

“Crystal, I need you to relax. You’re just a Gen with her purchased Companion enjoying an intimate moment together. The Nuls won’t know any different unless we give them a reason to,” Nathan whispered, his voice vibrating through her body as he pressed his body against hers.

Perhaps it was to distract her, or to convince the Nul’s they were enjoying an intimate moment, or just because he wanted to, but Nathan was suddenly kissing the sensitive spot just below her ear. She closed her eyes gasping at the incredible sensation, her body tingling from the point of contact all the way to her core. She fisted her hands in his jacket trying to keep her legs from buckling from the weakness he was causing. He didn’t stop there, oh no, he continued in his exploration with those wonderful tingling kisses until he reached her collarbone where he gently nipped and then kissed her again. She whimpered and her legs would have buckled if not for his strong arm around her waist supporting her.

The Source – Meme #7 – Together they will defy a futuristic society to reclaim love.

logo book hooksWelcome to my blog site and the Book Hooks Blog Hop Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. It’s a chance for all you great readers to check out samples of author’s WIPs or previously published books. I am Christine Murphy, romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series, The Source – A Wild Clan Saga Novel, and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

 

Here is the next meme from The Source for your enjoyment.

“Handler Reena, have they indicated the hours of presence required so I may tend to other clients you have me assigned to?” He had to ask the question because with the BioGen female to serve he wasn’t going to be getting much sleep at all. He wasn’t sure how he was supposed to look his best for his Handler if he wasn’t getting any sleep.
Reena leaned over the table, bracing herself on her crossed arms. “There won’t be any other clients for you. I have redistributed them to my other Companions. You’ll be at the beck and call of this special Gen twenty-four-seven, so I hope you brought enough clothes to last a few days because you’ll be living in her home.”
Shocked, Nathan leaned back in the chair. This was unprecedented. He had never heard of anything like this happening before from any of the other Companions. To be with one Gen for a whole month, twenty-four hours a day, and perhaps up to six months, was unheard of. This Gen must be an artificially birthed offspring of one of the BioGen leaders. To be able to afford him as a Companion for that long and exclusively had to mean the woman was of some importance. Swallowing roughly, he prayed she wasn’t completely without emotion; otherwise, he had a long several weeks of misery ahead of him. Yes, he could see the rest of his slowly shriveling soul perishing.
A pounding on the desk in front of him had Nathan refocusing on Reena and the information she was trying to communicate to him. Waving the silver handheld computer, his Handler glared at him. “Companion 96, are you listening? There are some important rules you must follow. First, as I said, you’ll be there twenty-four-seven. Second, you’ll abide by any security rules they may have and only escort her within the grounds of the building she lives in. Third, you’ll keep her occupied and out of trouble. Evidently, she has been restless and they can’t afford to have her unhappy and out of control. BioGen made this clear. If you fail in this mission, you’ll be immediately removed, and if you fail I’ll have your head on a platter.”
Nathan rolled his eyes at Reena’s theatrics. The thought of being beheaded actually intrigued him for a moment before his curiosity about the mystery Gen got the better of him and he asked, “Anything else?”
Tapping the top of the desk with her fingernail, his Handler answered, “Yes, she isn’t allowed outside the walls and grounds of the building she resides in unless she gets special permission from BioGen.”
Jerking up in the chair, Nathan shot back, “What!? How in the fuck do you expect me to keep her entertained if we’re trapped inside a building or restricted to limited grounds?”

Sunday Sneak Peak and The Source by Christine Murphy – Feb 9, 2014

Welcome to the next hop in the Sneak Peek Sunday Blog Hop and my blog site. I am Christine Murphy, paranormal romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series, The Source (Book 1 of The Wild Clan Sagas), and the Midnight Rider’s Series.
The Source_Version 4 Flat Med

Summary:

After a powerful influenza strain wiped out the population what remained of the World’s Nations met together to stabilize and repopulate the Earth with BioGen as the controlling government.Births were artificially engineered and the females who carried the genes became known as The Sources. When one particular Source, Crystal, begins to question her purpose in life and wants more outside the norms of society BioGen must find a way to keep her happy and willing to do their bidding. The leaders of BioGen have determined the only way to do this is to hire a Companion to keep her occupied.
The first time Nathan sees Crystal he knows there is more to her than others have led him to believe. Her kindness, her innocence, and her desire to learn the world and everything about him, when others have only used him, draws him to her more than anything else could.
Forbidden love grows between them and they must go on the run as BioGen discovers the liaison that can never be. Nathan must make the ultimate decision to save Crystal before she is forever taken away from him.With no one to help them, BioGen hot on their heels to retrieve a Source, and influential Gens determined to have her as their own, Nathan and Crystal will make a run for The Wilds and the last chance to be free to love one another.

Please enjoy the following sneak peak of The Source.

The Source – Meme #6 – Together they will defy a futuristic society to reclaim love.

logo book hooksWelcome to my blog site and the Book Hooks Blog Hop Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. It’s a chance for all you great readers to check out samples of author’s WIPs or previously published books. I am Christine Murphy, romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series, The Source – A Wild Clan Saga Novel, and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

 

Here is the next meme from The Source for your enjoyment.

Nathan could tell he was getting too close to her boiling point, and right now he couldn’t handle being sent to an unemotional Gen. He was afraid the bleak interaction might actually crush what remained of his soul this time. Lowering his feet to the ground, he sat up straighter and attempted to look contrite. He knew she wasn’t buying it, but at least she found the situation comical. Letting out a sharp laugh, Reena lowered herself back into the chair.

Reaching across her desk, she picked up a small handheld computer and tapped the screen several times with her dark red painted nails before she evidently found what she was looking for. In her now calm, even voice she informed him, “I have a new assignment for you, Companion 96. This is an important one, and you will be on your best behavior, or so help me I will have you taken back to BioGen for more mind adjustment.”

Stiffening in his chair, Nathan couldn’t believe his Handler had just threatened him with another mind-fuck. When she had gotten him back from the one and only punishment he had ever earned since being in her service for crossing the line, she had actually apologized to him after seeing the condition he was in. The fact that she was actually threatening him with that kind of treatment now meant this loan purchase was truly significant.
Evidently satisfied she had made her point, Reena went on. “You have been purchased for loan for a trial of one month. If successful, you’ll be kept on retainer for another six months. I’m not sure myself who the Gen is you were purchased for, but she must be a relative to those in BioGen. BioGen actually paid for you, and I can tell you the amount was substantial.” She clasped her hands in front of her on the finely ingrained wood of her desk and smacked her lip-glossed lips. “I could actually retire if I wanted to.”

Nathan doubted Reena would ever retire. She enjoyed the game of ownership and loaning too much. She would grow old and die before she would ever retire. Knowing this, he leaned forward and absently touched the diamond stud in his ear, one of the few things he refused to give up because it was a symbol of his youth when he was wild and free. He knew his Handler hated it, but on some level she liked the additional level of roguishness so had allowed him to retain the style.

If you enjoyed the meme, please enjoy another excerpt from The Source. Enjoy!The Source_Version 4 Flat Med

The Source Excerpt:

Right before his lips touched hers, the sound of the evening fifteen minute curfew warning went off. Crystal jumped and Nathan instantly pulled back.

“Damn it. I’m sorry, Crystal, I was so caught up in the moment I lost track of time.”

Grasping at his jacket, Crystal cried, “Nathan we have to get back. This is all my fault. If we get caught after curfew, they’ll take you away and maybe punish you. I should have never talked you into this.”

Tears streamed down her face and she swiped at them in fear for Nathan and for her. BioGen would probably punish her as well, and the things they could do terrified her. She choked, her body shaking, and her pulse rate went through the roof. Nathan seemed to try and calm her brushing the tears away but there just wasn’t any time and she fought to get a grip on her runaway emotions.

“Listen. I can get us back in plenty of time but you need to calm down. Do you trust me?” he asked while he pulled her hood back up over her face and followed up with his own to hide his.

Still gripping his jacket and feeling shaky, she nodded and whispered, “I do trust you, Nathan.”

With an encouraging look he reassured her, “Good. Just hold on tight and I’ll get us back to The Inspire. You just be ready with that magic necklace of yours to get us back into the building so no one will suspect we were ever gone. Ready?”

Crystal took a deep breath and nodded. It was the only acknowledgement Nathan appeared to need and after he grasped her hand in a firmer grip than earlier, he led her back out of the circle of bushes. Once on the path, he sped up into a fast jog and she had to push herself into a full out run to keep up with him. He was fast compared to her and she was panting before they even went a few feet but she was determined to get him back to her condo safely. Together they covered quite a bit of distance even making it to the large crack in the blacktop they had passed earlier. Nathan eased them both around the gap and Crystal began to breathe easier.

Just when she was sure they were going to make it in time, Crystal saw two Nul guards approaching with BioGen uniforms on, evidently making their last rounds. Pulling back against Nathan’s forward progression, she urgently whispered, “Nathan, BioGen guards.”

Immediately, Nathan steered both of them off the blacktop and over to one of the large trees bordering along the path. As soon as they were under the large spread of branches he spun her around and pushed her back against the trunk. The bark was rough but Nathan’s body surrounding and pressing against her was rock hard. He felt good and she felt protected but the Nul’s were getting so close and she could see them watching. She started to shake with nerves because she was sure they were going to get caught.

Nathan shifted slightly blocking her completely from the guard’s view. He leaned against his arm which he had positioned above her forming a protective cocoon around her. He leaned down just enough so he could push her hood back with his free hand and put his lips near her ear. Crystal could feel his warm breath brush against her and the sensation made her shiver for a different reason.

“Crystal, I need you to relax. You’re just a Gen with her purchased Companion enjoying an intimate moment together. The Nuls won’t know any different unless we give them a reason to,” Nathan whispered, his voice vibrating through her body as he pressed his body against hers.

Perhaps it was to distract her, or to convince the Nul’s they were enjoying an intimate moment, or just because he wanted to, but Nathan was suddenly kissing the sensitive spot just below her ear. She closed her eyes gasping at the incredible sensation, her body tingling from the point of contact all the way to her core. She fisted her hands in his jacket trying to keep her legs from buckling from the weakness he was causing. He didn’t stop there, oh no, he continued in his exploration with those wonderful tingling kisses until he reached her collarbone where he gently nipped and then kissed her again. She whimpered and her legs would have buckled if not for his strong arm around her waist supporting her.
