Asher's mission is simple: locate the Earth woman named Raine Thompson and bring her back to his home planet.

She claimed his heart. Raine has a mission of her own: to sleep with as many men as possible before she turns thirty and forget her ex in the process. Things look pretty grim until a hot guy from outer space shows up at her favorite bar.

Asher closed the distance between them. Their lips met, and she rose on the balls of her feet to deepen the kiss. His tongue pressed hard and hot into hers like a brand. She flattened her palms against the planes of his chest and skimmed the soft fabric covering his muscles.
Her nipples chafed against the lace of her bra, and she brushed her tits against his chest to get some relief. He threaded his fingers through her hair and inched her away from his body. She felt the wall, soft and smooth, behind her. Removing his watch, he gave it a quick glance before hanging it on an open cuff to her right.
Then he found the edge of her sweater. Its softness wisped up her body, and she raised her arms to help him take it off. She reached for the front clasp of her bra to free her sore nipples. In a flash, he grabbed her wrists and secured them in the cuffs above her head. He dipped his head for a kiss, but she twisted away.
"Please tell me this isn't a repeat of before."
He grinned but didn't answer. His hand touched a button above the cuffs, and he stepped back.
Raine's jaw dropped. "You jerk!"
The wall tilted back until it hovered parallel with the floor. Asher came to her side and calmed her with a kiss as he unhooked her bra and removed everything from the waist down. He untied the thick sash at his waist. "Know what I'd do if I got the chance to fuck a Responder?"
"Besides the obvious?"
"Yeah." He chuckled. "Besides the obvious."
"No idea." The words came out in a whimper as his fingers edged over the sway of her belly.
"I'd tie her up in lanos." The silk pooled between her breasts. He stretched the length of fabric down past her belly button and snaked it across her thighs. His hand stopped at the top of her knees. He looped it around one leg and tied a knot. The remaining silk circled the other leg and got the same treatment.
"When a Responder can't move, her whole body comes alive." He nipped the meat of one thigh and finished off the love-bite with a scratch of his unshaven face. Her cunt tensed.
He tested the knot between her knees and drew it toward her chest. Then he tore his eyes away from hers to inspect her bottom half. Fingers from his free hand teased the hair around her clit with a feathery touch. Her teeth gnashed together and held back a groan.
"Sing for me, Raine." His breath warmed the back of her thighs. "I want to hear you."
