Chigaru is captain of the guard and he loves his queen more than he should. He is loyal to the royal family but knows his desire for one he cannot have is an issue. He needs a woman who will distract him before he commits treason.
Kitty is a classically trained dancer turned stripper. Her life is perfect except for the shadows of her past catching up with her. She needs to get away before she becomes a prisoner of her destiny.
Five years ago, Silny enacted a plan to regain her lost memories. The last piece of the puzzle is Kitty, and Chigaru is the only one who can cross dimensions to retrieve her. Kitty is not right for his world. Chigaru is not what she expected. They are soul mates, but knowing that might not be enough to overlook their pasts for a future together.

Chigaru rolled on the bed so he spooned her. His arousal, which hadn’t diminished while she showered, rubbed against her behind. “I do desire you, Kristar.”
“Could have fooled me.”
“My desire isn’t enough. I plan to return to my world.”
“How? We haven’t found that scroll.”
“A way will reveal itself. I am not meant to be in this world. I cannot stay.”
“What if you have no choice in the matter?” She shifted so she could look over her shoulder at him. “You act like it’s only a matter of time before you leave, but without that scroll you’re not going anywhere. You know that, right?”
“But you’re still going to act like you have a chance of getting home?”
She sighed before settling on her side with a pillow cushioning her head.
“I won’t give up on returning home. Such a goal means I will not start a physical relationship with you, Kristar. I would want to take you with me when I leave. My world is not right for you.”
And here was this argument again. “You keep saying that. You don’t know if your world is right for me or not.”
“Our worlds are as different as night is from day. None of the technological advances you have exists there. It is similar to your medieval era in many ways. Living there would be hard for you.”
“And you won’t even think of letting me try.”
“This isn’t a matter of try. I came here only because I knew I could return home. The one who gave me the spell made no mention of being able to return someone if they came back with me.”
“So, if I went, I would be stuck.”
“That is a possibility.”
“You’d be there.”
“I doubt you will find my presence enough once you discover there are no microwaves.”
She laughed and swatted at him over her shoulder. “I am not that bad.”
“I have yet to see you cook anything that didn’t come with microwave instructions. Do you know how to work your stove?”
“Okay, maybe I am that bad.” She snuggled against him, smiling at the groan that left Chigaru when her behind rubbed his hard shaft. “But you’re overestimating how much I would miss this world if I left it. Maybe I want a simpler life with less convenience. Did you ever think of that?”
“Several times.” He placed a soft kiss on her shoulder. “Every time I imagine you in my world, I can only see you unhappy.”
“So let’s recap. You won’t have sex with me because that’ll make you want to take me home with you, which is bad because your world is different. Did I get all that?”
“Yes. There is one other thing.”
He kissed her shoulder again and then her neck. “If I were to engage you, the time I would need to pleasure your body would take hours.”
Her breathing turned shallow.
“Hours you need to rest for your work tonight.” He flicked his tongue against her ear. “I do not want you to be tired.”
“That’s…uh…I have tomorrow night off.”
He gave a soft chuckle, blowing his warm breath over her ear. “I said if, Kristar.” After one more kiss, he rolled to his back and settled against the pillows.
Kitty sat up so she could glare down at him. “Oh now that’s totally unfair. You can’t kiss me and say all that and then not do anything. You’re a big bully, you know that?”
“Evil. That’s what you are. Pure evil.”
“The humans of my world do call my kind demons.”
“For good damn reason, I’m betting.” She flopped against his side, settling her head on his shoulder. “I’m jumping you after work tomorrow. Just so you know.”
He made a non-committal noise.
“I mean it, Chi. You got me all hot and bothered. You’re going to do something about it.”
“Go to sleep.”
“Fine.” Kitty moved closer so she could drape her leg over him with her knee pressed against his manhood. She had the satisfaction of hearing Chigaru’s soft groan. She said in a sweet voice, “Goodnight.”
“Move your leg.”
She snuggled closer, making sure she rubbed the wet heat between her legs over his hip.
She placed her hand over his heart so her fingers were near his nipple and rubbed it.
“Kristar,” he said in a harsh, strained tone.
Mimicking the tone he used earlier, she said, “Go to sleep. We have work tonight.” She nudged him with her knee.
Chigaru groaned but didn’t move away or try to make her stop.
Kitty smiled. With all her teasing, neither of them would be rested for work. But if that led to fun in the bedroom afterwards, she would put up with the exhaustion for a second night in a row.
Thoughts of sex with Chigaru filled her mind and kept her nightmare away. Kitty fell asleep with a smile on her face and Chigaru’s hand cupping her behind.
