JB looked toward the door as everyone else did. Taio stood at the entrance, with Eva on one arm and a taller female who looked just like him on the other. He waited as everyone rose to their feet.
“That’s his mother, Queen Fainia Xochis of Drazlan,” Lo’Ren said from the seat next to him. “It’s customary for you to stand when she enters the room.”
“I’ve already pissed him off today, no need to do it again if it’s not totally necessary.” JB stood.
Taio proceeded through the door, followed by three other females. JB immediately found himself staring at one in particular.
Her head was cast down slightly, her face obscured by waves and waves of jet-black hair that brushed the swell of her round butt. She wore a pale-purple form-fitting dress. The floor-length gown had designs made of colored crystals. Her skin was the same color as Taio’s, but different. It seemed to glow. Her build was tall and slender with a hint of curves where they were needed most.
She turned her head.
He caught his breath.
As her lavender eyes locked on Lo’Ren, he willed her to look his way. Her features were sharp and foreign, but beautiful in every way. Her cheekbones were high and defined. Her lips were full and pink. She had a look of longing in her eyes and he wanted to know why.
No, he needed to know why.
Was she upset?
Who had taken the joy away from such a perfect female?
Look at me. I want to know you.
“Uh, unless you’re inviting Taio to kill you, I would sit down,” Lo’Ren said, tugging on his sleeve.
He glanced around to find he was the only one still standing. JB sat but kept his eyes on the female across the room. “Why would he kill me? She’s not human.”
“She’s his younger sister, Princess Saia.” Lo’Ren popped a piece of meat in her mouth and chewed. “Look the other way, human.”
That information alone should have been enough to make him turn his head and focus his attention on something else, but he couldn’t.
Rasha grabbed Saia in a bear hug and lifted her from her feet. JB watched, waiting for her to turn his way. His heart thumped. He wanted to go to her, meet her.
She was his.
He shook his head, trying to dislodge the misplaced thought.
Where the hell did that come from?
Then she turned toward him. Their eyes met.
And there it was.
His heart felt as though it was seized in a tight fist then dropped to the pit of his stomach.
“This is where you take my advice before you get into trouble.”
“She’s looking at me,” he whispered.
Every nerve in his body sprang to life. Her eyes were framed in the heaviest lashes he’d ever seen. And when she blinked, they looked like wings of butterflies.
He sighed and felt as if his body had melted into the chair.
Lo’Ren groaned. “Taio will kill you.”
“I don’t care.” He couldn’t drag his gaze away. A small smile graced beautiful full lips. Lips he wanted to claim for his own. From the side, her face had appeared long, but no, it was round and soft. Her nose was perky and petite. “Princess Saia,” JB said breathlessly.
Lo’Ren shook her head. “I shouldn’t have told you her name. I don’t want any part of this.”
“I would have found out anyway.” Nothing could have stopped him from knowing her name.
Lo’Ren blew out a heavy breath. “Did I mention that she’s Taio’s only sister?”
