At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen

Genre Science fiction romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure is a fast-paced scifi romance with an adorable, fun-loving hero who’s half-human and half-cat and a by-the-book army captain heroine. Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device. Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss. He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Know the Hero from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

He likes watching his favorite ruckball team, the Kelthian Killers. Ruckball is a mix of soccer, wrestling, and hockey. Points can be taken away for the wrong type of hold when wrestling for a ball, and parts of a professional field have lower gravity. It’s fun to watch.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

Senth likes chocolate. He’d probably go for dark chocolate muffins or cookies with milk, but he also loves chocolate ice cream.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Casual, but he is quite comfortable in dressy clothes and can easily tie the most difficult formal tie in the empire, a Tyran knot.

Does he know how to fix things?

He’s good with his hands and he has experience taking things apart. As a young child, he exasperated his father by taking apart items and being unable to remember how to put them back together. His father often didn’t know either.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

He stole money from a bigoted teenage bully and used it to buy chocolates and roses for a woman he wanted to impress. Let’s just say that stealing money to buy her a gift did not go over well at all.

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He’s marvelous with kids and tutors younger students in the Thieves’ Guild. He is the mentor for a talented youngster whose skills are off the charts.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

Adorably muddle-headed and bleary-eyed, but soon snaps out of it and is good to go.

Can he use chopsticks?

Yes, he can. They are a Tyran implement, and he’s not only familiar with their culture, he also speaks their language.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

He’s more of a hot chocolate kind of guy, but he’ll pretend-sip it if everyone else is having some. He’ll nurse that one cup all evening without ever drinking more than a spoonful.

What apps would he have on his phone?

He uses a device referred to as a mobile, which is like our smartphones on steroids. He has every app the Thieves’ Guild offers, plus ways to order food, hail a ride, or look up information. But all of his data is private and blocked because he uses the device in his work as a thief.

How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?

He doesn’t try to hide that he’s not fully human and when someone treats him with disrespect, he’ll start a fight so he can get close enough to pick their pocket.

Hide real self or be out in the open?

He is a HalfKin (half human and half feline humanoid) and he’s proud of it.

Let a worker handle it or do it himself?

He’d rather do it himself but has learned that doing it yourself can create unwanted attention. If it’s vital, he’ll do it himself.

Beard or clean-shaven?

Always clean-shaven.

Earrings/piercings or unadorned skin?

Unadorned.

Recycle or toss?

He reuses everything and only tosses what is completely useless.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground, thankfully) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home. She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it’s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories. From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things. No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She’s been married so long she’s tenured.

Today we’re reading about NarrAy Jorlan from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure by Kayelle Allen. Tell us about your book.

He’s a professional thief. She’s a by-the-book army captain. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device.
Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

Stressing NarrAy Jorlan

Every heroine has a story. She has a background, a history, and a past. This interview allows us to meet a heroine and get to know her better, by focusing on how she handles being relaxed, as well as how she handles stress.

Age: 28

Birthplace: Tarthian Empire

Profession: Captain in the All People’s Liberation Army (a rebel)

Ethnicity: Better (an addictive, enhanced human)

Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human

The Heroine’s Relaxed Side

This heroine is at a party. Considering her story, describe the party.

NarrAy’s story starts out with her wearing a hot red party dress so she can fit in at a night club. She’s there undercover to meet and hire a professional thief. The place is crowded to the max.

How does the heroine feel about being this particular party, and what body language is she displaying that gives it away?

She is not happy about being there and stands above the crowd on a hotel balcony, her arms crossed while she taps one foot.

Is she more likely to mingle or remain aloof?

NarrAy is not shy, but because her kind is addictive, they are forbidden access in society. She stays away from crowds.

If she drinks, what is her drink of choice at this party?

She’s too aware of her pheromones and how they affect others to risk getting drunk. She drinks something that looks alcoholic but isn’t.

How much drink is her usual?

She sometimes has a glass of wine with dinner. That’s it.

The heroine figures out where the hiding places are and then goes there. Is it to hide, to avoid someone, or to go drag a friend back to the party?

She’s avoiding anyone and everyone. Not only is her kind forbidden to mingle with others, they are not allowed to touch anyone either.

Is she likely to latch onto a friend and stay with him/her and ignore others, or is she the friend that others latch onto?

Others go stand beside her. She is the strong, silent type.

If someone picked a fight at this party, how is the heroine going to handle it?

Physically, she is tiny. However, all she has to do is release her pheromones and anyone in the vicinity will go glassy-eyed and slack-jawed. She’s not afraid of anyone no matter how big they are. Literally, no one can touch her if she doesn’t want them to.

Is the heroine the one most likely to get tossed out of the party, or the one who does the tossing?

She would do the tossing.

Will she know when to leave, or stay late and make a nuisance of herself?

She’s often the first to leave, unless she’s meeting someone on a covert mission or op.

Stressing NarrAy from At the Mercy of Her Pleasure #RLFblog #scifi #romance

The Heroine’s Stressed Out Side

How does the heroine handle it if the cops or some other authority figure pulls her aside when she was blameless in a situation?

She’s meek and demure and does not argue. However, she will not allow herself to be detained unjustly. It’s not something she’s proud of, but she can overpower with her pheromones and use her voice to control others. If she’s angry, the combination can kill.

How does the heroine react to hearing a scream?

She seeks backup if possible, but if she can’t, she will still investigate.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing that crosses her mind?

Protect the person. Then punish the assailant.

If she sees someone being assaulted, what is the FIRST thing she does?

Take a second to assess the situation. She does not leap blindly into anything, but she’s quick to decide and once she has, she doesn’t pull back.

This heroine attempts to rescue someone and realizes that she is in over her head. The odds are against her and there is no way out. She is going to get her butt handed to her. What does she do?

NarrAy will use her pheromones and voice to take command of the situation. She avoids that if possible.

The heroine runs into the one person from her past she wanted to avoid. She can’t get out of the situation and must interact with him/her in some way. What does she do?

She gets stiff and formal, retreats behind a wall of polite iciness and waits for the person to leave. If it looks like they aren’t, she makes excuses for leaving and gets out of there.

Someone younger than the heroine is in charge of the situation, and they are handling it badly, perhaps bungling things. How does the heroine deal with it?

She comes alongside, talks to them, and if she outranks them (she’s a captain, after all) she will direct them as to how to fix the situation and proceed.

The heroine is in physical pain but must bear up under it and keep going. What does she tell herself in order to get through the situation?

Pain is fleeting. Honor is forever.

What mentor’s words come to mind in a bad situation?

“Think, assess, and then act without regret.”

What lesson from her past gets her through a stressful situation?

When her parents were killed and their belongings confiscated by the Tarthian Empress, she considered it the worst day of her life. From the moment she heard what had happened, she knew she had to take back what was stolen and honor her parents’ legacy. She reminded herself daily, sometimes hourly, that she would make them proud.
