Story Inspiration
This is my second “Sass and Kel-Paten” novella. The characters are from GAMES OF COMMAND, my 2007 release from Bantam Books. It’s funny—or maybe not so funny—that the book has generated two novellas because the book was “born” from a series of email adventures to a good friend. And here it is in “short form” again.

For those who’ve not read GAMES OF COMMAND, I hope the story still works for you. But honestly, it will make more sense if you read the book first—or else you also venture into spoiler land with the short stories.

Here’s some BSP on GAMES OF COMMAND:

"Games of Command is a wonderful book. Linnea Sinclair has written a unique and utterly intriguing hero in Kel-Paten. Sexy, complex and devoted, he's a man to fall in love with."
- Nalini Singh, author of Visions Of Heat

“Games of Command… features not one but two sexy, dangerous heroes, along with two strong, capable women and two fabulous furry furzels. Sinclair whips her characters through a story that is as exciting and action packed as it is passionate. Games of Command is not to be missed.”
- Mary Jo Putney, author of Stolen Magic
