last two weeks. Thankfully his mate was as insatiable as he was.

‚Are you going to tell them?‛

‚I gave them a price. I don’t think they liked it.‛ A trace of a smile

curled at the corner of Barrick's lips.

‚Two million credits?‛ Timbal laughed, throwing out an

outrageous number.

‚No.‛ Barrick looked up from the handheld computer link in front

of him to catch his brother’s gaze. ‚I think it’s about time we had a land

base.‛

‚You didn’t.‛

‚If I give them the information, then it’s the only way our line will

With the deposit came land and a measure of security.

Timbal broke out in laughter.

Author Bio

Leila has been an avid reader since the fifth grade. As she got older,

she read everything she could get her hands on from horror, to mystery

and finally stopping in romance.

After college, she finally realized what she wanted to do when she

grew up—write those stories that entertained her through more nights

than she could remember. Of course her first attempts were less than

remarkable and have been destroyed to protect the innocent. :D

Currently, she works a normal 9 to 5 in the IT world. She writes

during her lunch hour and at home after 9pm when everyone in her house

is asleep.

Is it easy? Yes and no. Coming up with the stories is easy. Getting

the words out of her head and onto paper is HARD! But she couldn't live

without it!
