Release Tour | A Mate to Sacrifice by Laylah Roberts




“Why would you attempt to escape us?” Sangel scowled down at her. He was at least half a head taller than Caden, who held her easily in his arms.



“Um, I was thinking that I don’t know the two of you, and you’re talking about beaming me up to your alien spaceship so some other alien dude can use some sort of experimental instrument on me.”



“She is frightened,” Sangel said with a frown.



“Do you always scowl like that?” she asked him. “Aren’t you worried about wrinkles?”



“Why would I worry about wrinkles?”



“Why indeed? Wrinkles make a man look distinguished. They just make a woman look old.”



“Why do we speak of wrinkles?” he asked.



Caden sighed. “Female humans are confusing. This is why I watched those vids. To learn how to communicate with females.”



“So communicate that we do not plan to allow any harm to come to her.”



“Female,” Caden cleared his throat. “We—”



Suddenly both men froze. It was kind of eerie the way they did that at the exact same moment.



“We must go,” the big guy looked down at her. “We cannot run with her in this condition.”



Run? No, she couldn’t run in this condition. Walk, probably not. Crawl? Maybe.



“I will fix a brace around her neck as Alam suggested. You need to find us a way out of here.”



“Ah, can’t we just use the door?” she asked.



There was a sense of extreme urgency about them now. Caden set her down on the bed and reached for his pack. He drew out some sort of brace.



“Look, you can just let me go now. I’ll be fine. I’m sure you’re needed elsewhere.”



“We are not going anywhere without you. We did not go all these years without you only to lose you the minute we found you.”



What the fuck did that mean? All right, she was seriously starting to worry about their sanity.



“I don’t know you. Why would you care about me?”



“Because you are ours,” he told her fiercely, securing the brace around her neck. “But I am sorry that we cannot be gentler, knowing how scared you are of males.”



“I’m not scared of males,” she muttered. She wasn’t a frightened little mouse. She just thought men were big fat lying jerks. Although she had to admit that while these two might be weird in the extreme they seemed very concerned about her health.



“Who are you guys?”



“I am Caden. My bonded is Sangel.”



“Right.” That wasn’t really what she’d meant, and what did bonded mean? Did that mean they were in a relationship? Together? Well, that kind of made sense considering her dream. She blushed a little. “Well, nice to meet you. Thanks for saving me. Will you please let me go?”








A mistake she deeply regrets… Growing up the daughter of a gang member, Peyton didn’t exactly have a life filled with cupcakes, family holidays and daddy-daughter dances. Not unless you counted a trip to the prison to visit your daddy a family holiday. So what does she do? She stupidly accepts a proposal from the first man offering an escape. He was supposed to be her savior. He turned into her nightmare.



A female of their dreams… On the hunt for a murderer, no one is more surprised than Caden and Sangel when they come across a fragile, tiny, human female — with a backbone of steel and a mouth like razorblades. She is everything they ever wanted. But when she sacrifices herself to save Sangel, will they lose it all?





Laylah Roberts grew up in rural New Zealand. She worked her way through several libraries, devouring romance books. She finally worked up the courage to write her own story and she's never looked back. She loves dominant, Alpha men who meet their match in her strong heroines. When she's not writing, she's busy running after her young daughter and trying to tame her never-ending pile of laundry.

Chapter 2

Tola/Aly
Two weeks earlier
After checking in at the lobby, I went upstairs to the apartment. A motherly looking lady, possibly in her fifties, opened the door with a bright smile.
“Hello, I’m Mrs. Romana, but everyone calls me Mrs. R.”
“Hi, I’m Aly, the nurse’s assistant.” I showed her the laminated badge Leah had made for me.
“Yes, please come in. Mr. Ellis is sleeping right now.”
She welcomed me in. I walked into the modernly decorated room definitely a bachelor space, no doubt. I looked around the wide living room with large windows and fantastic view.
“Come with me. I’ll show you your room and around the house.”
I nodded and followed her. She led me into a simple-style bedroom, and as I placed my bag on the bed, she showed me the connecting bathroom. I followed her around the house as she showed me the other bedrooms and Mr. Ellis’s office.
“Please don’t go in his office unless he calls you or sends you there. He’s very particular about that.”
I nodded my understanding.
Once back in the kitchen, she showed me his medications and instructions. He’d just come home from the hospital earlier that day from an outpatient surgery of his knee. He was going to need someone in the house with him.
I listened carefully as she explained his routine. She’d be here for a few hours during the day to clean and prepare his food. My job, as she explained, was to care for him when she wasn’t there.
“Since you are here during the day, why does he need me here full-time?” I asked.
“Well, I may need to go out during my hours here to complete errands, and I also cannot spend the night. Besides, I agree with his mother that we’ll all feel better knowing someone is here all day to help him without having to worry about hours.”
I nodded my understanding.
Mrs. R. was very pleasant, and she made me feel at home for the first time since my mom had died. I hadn’t realized how I had missed the motherly attention.
She was starting to talk about simple stuff. It was nice talking to her about school and everyday life. She made me lunch, and we laughed together at funny stuff. We had just cleaned up our plates when I heard a deep voice interrupt our conversation.
“Mrs. R, I need my meds, please.”
“Coming” she responded. She turned to me after grabbing the pain meds and bottle of juice. “He’s a big baby. Can’t take medicine with water unless it is flavored. Come with me so you can meet him.”
I followed her, heading to his room. She knocked gently; then entered. I had no expectation of him—after all, there wasn’t a picture of him in the living room, and I hadn’t stepped into his office. All I knew was he was young and fresh out of knee surgery. Nothing could have prepared me for the earth knocking me off my axis when I laid eyes on him.
I was no virgin. That part had gone out the door in my eighteenth year on Earth. Even with my dad’s overbearing love, I had kissed a few frogs in college. Not a relationship; just a few un-princess worthy moments in the sack.
But this one with his left leg resting on pillows and his knee wrapped in bandage, leaning his upper body on the headboard in a crinkled white undershirt and board shorts, his muscular, sculptured arm revealing some of the toned body and tan hidden by the shirt, his short black hair roughened from sleep… As my eyes fixated on his masculine face, the sexy gray eyes with full lashes that shouldn’t be on a man-captured my eyes. Clean-shaved face with lips that looked like they were begging me for a kiss. Time stood still as I gazed at him.
Mrs. R spoke, making us break our gaze of each other. “Kyle, here is your Motrin.”
Only then did I notice she had moved around while my eyes had been fixated on him. He accepted the meds, swallowed them, then returned his eyes to me.
“Meet Aly, your nurse’s aide. She will be helping you when I’m not around,” Mrs. R said.
My three easy weeks had just gotten downright messy. Three weeks with him was going to be very dangerous for my mind and body. I would have introduced myself, but I stood, tongue-tied, not sure what to say to him.
“Ms. Aly,” he expressed in an icy tone.
“Hi, Mr. Ellis pleased to meet you,” I responded.
His tone snapped me out any crazy fantasy of us I might have had.
“Aly, make sure I get my next set of Motrin in four hours. If I’m sleeping, wake me. I can’t stand this pain, and I hope Mrs. R has filled you in on my expectations.”
“Yes, she has.”
“Would you like to eat now, Kyle?” asked Mrs. R.
“No,” he replied.
Mrs. R began adjusting his pillows as she spoke. “You know, not eating isn’t an option for me. Unless you want me to start feeding a grown man like you,” she said in that motherly tone that gave one no option.
“Fine. Bring me what you have,” he grumbled.
“Now that is more like it.” She turned to me. “Come on, Aly.”

Words like unnatural and impure started the whispers.

From the very beginning, Ivy Blackwood was different. She was only a child when she was accused of setting the fire, one she passively watched engulf the small house she had called home. Her fingertips burned and her hair singed. Some who watched her crossed themselves, convinced she was soulless for she showed no emotion at all. Calm and dispassionate, even when the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into nothing but the roaring of the fire.

She was locked away where she couldn’t bring harm to herself or others. To all involved, they had protected the world from a monster, but sometimes things are not what they seem.
