Author's Note: This is the remastered version of the original novella titled Krinar Covenant published in 2018. Due to unforeseen hiccups, I had to unpublish the expanded version's title, The Krinar Covenant, released on April 9th 2022, and republish with the new title, The Krinar Rake. If you already purchased the expanded version titled The Krinar Covenant, published April 9th 2022, you do not need to buy and read this one, as they are the same book.
X-Club owner Jerik realizes in the middle of a hot encounter with two humans that he's bored beyond belief and ready for a change of pace. In the past, a change of pace meant new partners in a different location in different positions. But his restless ennui cannot be extinguished, and in a sea of lusting bodies, he's adrift in unaccustomed loneliness. It's in this unusual state of mind he accidentally knocks over the stunning yet aloof heiress. Her disinterest in him as a Krinar or a man stirs a primeval need to pursue until she is his, if not in soul, in body. Unfortunately, she's firm with her boundary, and that boundary is marriage--to someone she loves.
Medora Rothchild lost another client. It's the nature of her life's work, but it never gets easier. She's in the post-death haze when some huge guy bowls her over, completely ruining her Dolce & Gabbana coat, not to mention her Gucci leggings and Blahnik boots. She doesn't actually care about the clothes; she's still mulling over the passing of the most recent child her foundation, Humans with Heart, served. When the huge guy turns out to be a Krinar, she can't exit his penthouse fast enough. But the relentless Krinar won't leave her alone, and she finds his ego endearing if misguided. Because while she might enjoy spending time in the unapologetic lothlario's company, he isn't marriage material. Because she could never love a Krinar. Especially a Krinar Rake.
