Welcome lovelies! Today I have author J.J. Lore and a native inhabitant of Planet Alpha stopping by. His name is Prince Edem of Xyran and his story, Ruled.
Introducing Mallet, the bondmate of Prince Edem of Xyran.
Welcome, Mallet. Would you care to tell us about yourself?
Why do you want to know about me?
So the readers out there can get to know you a bit and become interested in reading your story.
Ah. It’s more accurately our story. I don’t tend to think of myself without including my bondmates Edem and Corrine.
Well, in the interest of keeping this interview on point, let’s try to focus on you. Where are you from and what do you do?
I am from Planet Alpha, which is quite far from Earth, in a distant quadrant of the galaxy. We are a proud race of warriors who happened upon your world, which confuses us with your many ruling factions and environmental problems. I serve as bodyguard and majordomo to Prince Edem.
On Alpha you don’t have those issues?
Of course not. We have a king who rules us with the good of our people ever paramount in his mind. My bondmate is in line to inherit the title and all the responsibility that accompanies it. My role is to support and defend him in all things. We bonded as teens and have been in accord ever since. Well, to be honest, we do have disagreements, but that is to be expected when dealing with one of the royal blood, accustomed to doing as he likes.
So who is Corrine?
She is now our bondmate and is perfection itself. With her by our sides, we can best any adversity the galaxy might throw at us.
Is she human?
Yes, a beauty in form and character. We met on Earth and it took much courting and charm to win her heart. Prince Edem has a way with words and compliments I lack, so I was grateful he could make inroads with her. I fear I would have simply thrown her over my shoulder and taken her to our cabin if left to my own devices.
What does the future hold for you?
Unknown. We are travelling back to Alpha now and hope the King is receptive to a human daughter-in-law. Relations between our people are still so new, it is difficult to predict what our reception will be.
While on a clandestine visit to Earth, Prince Edem of Alpha and his bondmate Mallet by chance meet a humble cook who intrigues them. The impulsive prince feels a brief fling with an exotic human female sounds like the perfect way to conclude their travels, while his more pragmatic bondmate urges caution.
Despite all the reasons to avoid her, the Alphans seek her out, intrigued by her prickly pride and defiant disposition. For her part, Corrine is intimidated by these imposing and mysterious alien men, but finds herself overwhelmed by their determined courtship.
Edem and Mallet convince themselves their deepening feelings for Corrine do not have to include bonding, since such a commitment is forbidden by the King and subjects of Alpha, determined to keep the bloodline pure. But when danger threatens, the three are forced to choose between having the galaxy at their feet or losing each other forever.

~~ Ruled excerpt ~~
They made her shake. She’d thought it was first with anger, then fear, but as Mal eased his mouth against hers while Edem circled his fingers down her back, she knew she was shaking with lust. How had she gotten here? She’d been so insulted by the gift she’d rushed to them thoughtlessly and had somehow admitted to them she was frightened of sex, but now was barely able to keep on her feet for the heat blooming in her pussy.
Someone’s hands were pulling at the hem of her shirt, and she drew away from Mal to glance down and discover Edem had insinuated his fingertips underneath the material and was now rubbing along her bare waist. Her skin tingled. Mal reached for her buttons and had the front of her shirt open before she realized what was happening. When the cool air reached her nearly exposed breasts, she automatically reached to bring the edges back together, her breath rushing in and out with a mix of desire and caution.
“Let us see and touch. Justhere,” Edem said softly as he caressed her lower back. Mal stared at her, his eyes darkening as he gave a slight nod. It was stupid to even consider it, but she seemed to be doing lots of stupid things lately. This could be the test. She could say no and hope they would stop. Would they let her control this? She didn’t want to say no yet, though. She sucked in a breath and urged her stiff fingers to cooperate as she released her grip on the shirt. She was wearing a bra, so she could say no when then tried to remove that final layer and expose her.
Edem let out a sigh and tugged at her sleeves, her blouse falling from her shoulders. She couldn’t stop her shiver as the cool air trickled across her back and stomach. Mal tightened his grip on her waist, and with a start she realized he had a sizeable erection and it was pressed into her belly. Normally, she’d shy away, but somehow knowing how aroused he was pleased her rather than made her anxious.
Mal trailed his fingers along her collarbones. “You’re lovely.”
“So delicate,” Edem chimed in, and she glanced at him, wondering what he thought of her faded, repaired bra. He was a powerful man on his planet and was probably used to women who were perfumed, groomed, and attired in beautiful chiffons and laces. She failed on all counts.
Sliding his hand along her side, Edem cupped one of her breasts, pushing her flesh slightly up. Her nipple contracted in a painful nub, and she inhaled deeply. He ran his thumb over the sensitized bit of flesh, and the material of her bra bit into her.
Mal dipped his head her way, long strands of his dark hair trailing along her bare shoulders. He pressed a kiss to the top swell of the breast Edem was holding, and she shook at the sensation of both of them caressing her in synchronicity. She clenched her hands in confusion. She wanted to touch them but wasn’t sure how. She’d always been confused and tense with the few men she’d been with, which had undoubtedly contributed to her discomfort with the act.
Soft lips nibbled at her neck, and she leaned away from him, not to avoid the touch as she should, but to allow him more room. The ticklish sensations crept over her nerves, and she compulsively reached up to clutch at Edem’s head, her fingers sinking into his surprisingly silky hair. He bit her throat gently in response, and a surprised moan burst from her. Before she could think further, Mal had fastened his mouth over her nipple and pressed his teeth to the sensitized flesh. Her whole body jolted uncontrollably, and she cried out, unable to hold back the sound of surprise and excitement.
“It would be better without this,” Edem whispered in her ear as he ran his fingers under the shoulder strap of her bra. Mal rumbled against her breast, and she reached her other hand out to trace into his hair, careful to avoid those curving horns. “May I?”
