I am a traveller who enjoys finding new exciting places to explore. I have no real home to call my own and have never longed for a place to rest. At least until I met the woman who sets my senses on fire.

 

Lainey Mercer is stubborn, hard to get near and passionate. She is all that I never realized that I wanted. She has made this god wonder what could be possible with a woman by your side who matches you in everyway. I now long to put down roots and for us to create a home together. Live from now to the rest of eternity and beyond side by side. But my Lainey is a woman who will not give in…she will bring me to my knees and then rebuild me into a better god who has found – the woman he loves.

“Definitely.”

Lainey laughed. He hadn’t even denied it.

“Is there a reason you didn’t tell me outside who you were?”

“I was enjoying you getting all heated.” He practically purred the words.

Lainey stiffened. “You are my boss. And I will afford you the respect due to that. But make no mistake—take it beyond that and you will not like my response.”

“You’ve called me an ass a few times. And have spoken to me in what some would consider a rude manner. Yet you talk now to say you will give me respect.” Taber stared.

Lainey refused to shift under his perusal. “Some would, yes. But you don’t seem like a man who has time for people to sugar-coat things or kiss your ass. If today is anything to go by, I will be calling you ass and many other names. I’m sure you can handle it.”

“I can handle anything you dish out, Lainey Mercer. But be careful with wild things—they have a tendency to be unpredictable.”

Lainey frowned. “I know they do. That’s why you have to know how to handle them.”

“Handling isn’t a problem. It is what you do with them after you have them—that’s what you have to decide.”

Lainey was confused. She had no clue what their conversation meant. Laney decided to change the subject.

“I saw my office is next to yours.”

“Yes. There is a connecting door right here.” Taber straightened and walked over to a door facing his desk.

Lainey followed him, watching his ass move in the khakis he was wearing. She jerked her gaze up. Taber opened the door and gestured for her to enter. She passed him and went into her new office. It was as spacious as his. Her desk was to the right, with a window encompassing the whole wall behind it, like his. Lainey went closer, glancing out.

“I had her habitat built so you could see her from your office. The glass of the window is made to be two-way. You can have it so she can be able to see in, or you can block it so you can see her but she can’t see you. It’s currently set for only you to see her.” Taber stated from behind her.

Lainey watched Kali as she reclined on the ground outside. She already looked like she was at home. Lainey turned to face him. He leaned against the doorjamb. Everything about him was so tempting.

Can’t go there. He’s your boss. Even more off limits. Lainey knew she would have to keep reminding herself of that fact.

Reviews of Taber…
 

Amethyst Nymph at Literary Nymphs Reviews gives Four Nymphs and says in part: “Taber is the fifth book in the Kemet Uncovered series, and it’s left me wondering what I missed in the first four books. The passions and problems of Gods always seem more intense, especially when dealing with women who aren’t afraid to drive them to the edge. I love the fact they at the end of the day, Taber is still just a man who messed up and needs to get back in his woman’s good graces. Aliyah Burke and Taige Crenshaw are skilled at showing all the sides of a character, so readers understand them. This is another gripping story that will draw you in and keep you hoping to see the characters reappear in another story.”
