Character Interview with Mekai from BEYOND REACH by Jessica E. Subject

Character Interview with Mekai from BEYOND REACH by Jessica E. Subject

Most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?

Mekai: That would be the time I tried to impress a girl down in the caves of Carbae, the moon I live on, and slipped. I fell into the water, and the girl took off. But, my best friend stayed behind. Not to help me, but to lean against the cave walls and laugh. After I changed into dry clothes, he wouldn’t let me forget about it. He still brings the occasion up every chance he gets.

What would be the best gift someone could get for you?

Mekai: A ticket off this damn moon. I may not be able to go to Ubetron, but there are plenty of other planets in this galaxy and universe I could go to.

Do you have any pets? If no why not?

Mekai: Pets? I’ve heard that term before. It is some kind of animal that is tamed and lives indoors. No, we don’t. My father would never allow an animal of any kind in the castle. And there are no animals dumb enough to live on Carbae anyway.

Did you play as a child? If so what did you do and did you find yourself in trouble?

Mekai: I played every day after I finished my chores. Usually in the caves, which always got me into trouble. No one is supposed to go into them, but we always do. Now that I’m older, my father doesn’t follow me around as much.

What are your favourite:

Food: Anything that is not cold. Food has to be cooked in a fireplace, and wood has to be imported. Most of it is used to heat the castle, the rest going to making meals for the community.

Drink: Mead. Though it isn’t imported to our planet very often.

Music: Any time sweet voices come together. We don’t have instruments on Carbae, but that doesn’t stop the people from singing and making music with their bodies.

Books: These are banned on Carbae.

Movies: I don’t even know what these are.

Sports: Some of us race to see who can get our chores completed the fastest. There are no organized sports on Carbae though.

Recreation: Besides exploring the caves, we like to go rock climbing, or see how close we can get to the bright side of Carbae before it becomes too hot.

What is the best way to spend the weekend?

Mekai: There are no weekends on Carbae. We do chores every day and then have free time to do whatever we want. Though, that’s not much time at all. Can you see why I want to leave Carbae? I have a plan to leave though, and I’m just about to put it into place. Wish me luck.

Abandoned by her parents…

Born on Earth, Nixie was left on the planet Schedar when her parents returned home. Growing up on the pleasure planet, she follows in the footsteps of the woman who raised her, and learns the art of erotic massage. But Nixie yearns for a different life, one where she receives as much pleasure as she gives.

A runaway prince…

In an attempt to escape his arranged marriage, Prince Mekai flees to Schedar. For, he could never love his betrothed when he already loves another, a fantasy woman who invades his dreams every night. When the woman he seeks carnal pleasure from turns out to be the same one in his fantasies, he believes fate brought them together.

Fated lovers or forever enemies?

Just when Nixie and Mekai believe they have a chance at happiness with each other, they find out why their races are at war, and why they can never be together.

Please note: Beyond Reach was previously published with another publisher. It has been revised into a darker story than the original, and expanded to give the hero and heroine a harder, but much more satisfying happily ever after.

Walking into the silky rear-end of an uidiss, she came to an abrupt halt. The creature had been walking at a steady pace and then stopped. She’d failed to notice in time. Wiping fluff off her face, she turned around and walked into another hard body. “I’m so sorry.”

Hands clamped down on her arms. “Are you all right?”

She stared up into deep brown eyes. Chewing her bottom lip, she nodded. If this man hadn’t been holding on to her, she would have fallen to the ground. The word swoon held no meaning for her until now.

Am I only like this because of the ipsum I inhaled back home? Or was there something more she found heart-racing about the blue-skinned, well-muscled hunk of an Ubetron who held her up?

No, she couldn’t feel anything for him. Their races had been sworn enemies for years. Everyone across the galaxy knew that. Yet here she was, standing face to face, gazing intently at him, with no will to move.

He smiled at her, drawing her attention from his eyes to his lips. How would they taste? She’d never kissed anyone intimately before.

“You look familiar. What’s your name?”

Name? Gods, what was her name? “Ni…Nixie.” Had she told him, or only thought the word?

He released her arms to brush his fingers along her jaw line. How she remained standing, she had no idea.

“Nixie. A beautiful name belonging to a beautiful woman. Have we met before?”

Moisture pooled between her thighs. Her cheeks warmed. “Thank you, but no.” She’d definitely remember meeting him.

As he trailed a hand down her arm, she sighed. Her entire body tingled from his gentle touch.

“Okay, weird. You must remind me of someone else. Now tell me, why were you in such a rush that you walked into the rear end of that slow-moving beast? We’re supposed to be on vacation, enjoying all this planet has to offer.”

Laughing at his description of the uidiss, she leaned against his arm. Never before had she enjoyed a man’s attention like this. “I’m not visiting. I live here. Have my whole life.”

He raised his eyebrows. “Really? So, what was it like growing up on the pleasure planet?”
