A double day post as it’s My Sexy Saturday too, and the theme is Sexy Space. Here’s 7 paragraphs from Taken As Payment, my out of this world Sci-Fi bestseller from last year. Xane has taken responsibility for Iona, who was taken from her home to his city. She’s supposed to hate him, but things haven’t gone quite as expected.
Xane swayed slightly, then steadied. He nodded slowly as if to acknowledge what she had said. “I will be as gentle as I can be. I know you are not like our women.”
“You don’t have to treat me differently.”
“I think I do and that is why you are here.”
She stepped closer to him. “Yes,” she confessed. “I want this to be different. That being said, I don’t know how to behave, what to do.”
“Be yourself, Iona.”
The gap between them shrank and she reached up with a tentative finger and touched his breastbone. Slowly, she traced the outline of his muscular chest, using her digit to explore his firm pectorals and sculptured collarbones. She mapped out every contour, dipping into the valleys where his ribs drew in and along his abdominal muscles, which flattened his stomach into rigidity. Bringing up her other hand, she followed the line of his arm, up from his wrist, feeling the bulk of his bicep and the squareness of his shoulder. Her little tactile exploration created waves of tingles out from her core. Those delightful sensations assaulted her nipples and clitoris. As she caressed him, she clenched her channel and sensed a wetness like nothing before.
Xane didn’t stop her. A wry smile appeared on his face when she stroked the bristles on his chin. If his hands itched to be on her, he held them at bay by his side, but there was no hiding the bulge behind the towel. It tented, pushing itself forward, making its presence increasingly visible.
A spanking romance story set on an imaginary island where forfeits must be paid when the crops fail.
When she is taken from her home and forced to work in the powerful city of Chandros to pay the debts of her small farming community, twenty-year-old Iona Meers is furious. After an intimate, humiliating medical examination conducted in full view of Chief Inspector Xane—the man she considers responsible for her predicament—her seething anger turns into outright defiance.
Having noted both Iona’s rebelliousness and her helpless arousal during her examination, Xane decides to bring her home with him as his personal servant. Iona’s disobedience quickly results in her being pulled over Xane’s knee for a long, hard spanking on her bare bottom, yet despite her best efforts to ignore her body’s response to his dominance, she soon realizes that there is a reason Xane is known among his people for his skill as a virgin claimer.
Iona’s longing for Xane’s touch grows stronger with each passing day, and yielding to his dominant lovemaking arouses her beyond anything she could have ever imagined. But when a long-buried secret from her past comes to light and calls everything Iona thought she knew about herself into question, will it strengthen her bond with Xane or tear them apart forever?

TAKEN AS PAYMENT by Jaye Peaches is the story of Iona, a resident of Mesos, who is chosen as one of the ten Conscripti and taken to Chandros to pay her commune’s debt through servitude. To me, the story is fashioned very much like feudal societies of old with a blend of the various communities from the Hunger Games.
When Iona goes to Chandros, rather than being placed in a house as a servant, she becomes the property of the tax collector, Xane, who is taken with her.
The story is well told and entertaining. Iona has several misconceptions about life in Chandros, some are accurate, and she’s in for a trying time until she comes to understand and accept how things are.
She’s both afraid of and attracted to Xane and eventually, her desire wins out and the two enter into a relationship. One of the areas where they are at odds is that people of Chandros do not marry (it’s forbidden) and are polyamorous whereas the people of Mesos (and the other communes) believe in marriage and monogamy.
The world that the author has created is well thought out, the characters were believable, and the relationship between Xane and Iona was one that you wanted to cheer on. I loved how she expanded sexually and grew to enjoy everything that Xane introduced to her. And yes, the sex scenes were marvelous.
