Blurb:

She can kill with a kiss. But can assassin Tyree also heal one man's grief, and bring peace to a galaxy threatened by war?

For Tyree of the Su, being an assassin isn’t simply something she was trained for. It's the sole reason for her existence. A genetically enhanced clone—one of many in Refuge—she's about to learn her secluded lifestyle, and that of all her kind, is under threat by a race capable of neutralizing their special talents to leave them defenseless.

For Zander D'joren, being a diplomat has not only cost him his appearance, but also the love of his life. Scarred, grieving, he must nonetheless continue in his role as co-delegate to the fearsome Tier-vane or risk a conflict that could only end one way.

Now both of them need to keep each other alive and maintain a perilous deception long enough to renegotiate the treaty with the Tier-vane, or throw their people into a war that could wipe out Terrans and Inc-Su alike. But there's more at stake than humanity, whether true or modified. Can the love growing between them save them both? Or merely hasten their destruction?

#Book Spotlight - Alien Attachments by @SabinePriestly new #scifi #romance #sfrb

Available for pre-order now!
Blurb:

Finding one’s psi-mate is something every Sandarian dreams of. Too bad Ian’s family and society would never allow him to bond with a human. And even if he could, Dani would never let some alien voodoo tell her who she was going to spend the rest of her life with. No matter how hot he is.


Link:



Excerpts:

“Earth Protector? You’re kidding right?”
“No. Pretty much what it sounds like. Cliche as it may be, we are not alone in the universe.”
Dani held Jared’s gaze. She’d heard what he said, but couldn’t process the words. They sat on her brain like little beings, patiently waiting to be let in. Knock, knock. Dani let out a nervous laugh. Maybe if I ignore them, they’ll go away. Jared didn’t blink. Or maybe not.
“So you’re not an EP?”
“Nah, I’m human, just like you. I’m what they call a Support Agent, or SA for short. I do what I can for Ian and the other EPs, but I’m based with Ian.”
“So you’re a spy.”
“Support agent, not secret agent,” Jared said. “Although, we are a secret.”
“You’re a spy for aliens.”
“Stop it. It’s not like that.”



Bio:

Sabine grew up in Phoenix, but has lived in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Texas, Massachusetts and Florida. She has a BS in Electrical Engineering Technologies and did everything but her thesis for a Masters degree in Cultural Anthropology, looking at the nexus of culture and technology. She was a Project Manager flying back and forth between Tucson and Boston when she met her very own alien. She spent a year running the QA department for a seriously cool and under appreciated computer telephony system then moved to California where she ran a small tech support group for a company making DSL routers before anyone knew what DSL was. A life long fan of Science Fiction and Romance novels, Alien Attachments naturally gelled in her imagination. Sabine lives in Florida with her husband, kids, cats and whole mess of characters in her head.

#Release Day Spotlight - In The Devil's Nebula by @AnnaHackett #scifi #romance #adventure


Action, Adventure and Romance IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA
First there was AT STAR’S END and the treasure hunt to find the last remaining fragment of the Mona Lisa. Now travel to the heart of the Devil’s Nebula on the hunt for the gun used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.

He lost it all.
His career, his woman, his sanity.
Two years ago, on a deadly mission to the lawless Devil’s Nebula, Commander Zayn Phoenix’s life imploded. Now the former Strike Wing pilot fills his days with dangerous adventures alongside his treasure hunter brothers.
But his nights are another story: haunted by nightmares of one unforgivable act.
Until an assassin lures him into a hunt. A hunt for her freedom from the Assassin’s Guild. A hunt for a derringer used in an ancient and infamous assassination—of old Earth president, Abraham Lincoln.
Zayn is compelled to join the perilous adventure with Ria Dante that will take them straight into the heart of the Devil’s Nebula, but not for money, fame or treasure.
He joins because Ria has the face of the woman he left for dead in the Nebula years before.

To read the first chapter or buy <<Click here>>

Teaser excerpt:
Ria moved her hands, her body bending like a slim tree in the wind. “Taiji isn’t so much about killing, it’s about settling the mind, balancing your energies.”
“Sounds very Old Earth.”
“It has its origins there, although they’re murky now. We don’t know exactly where it came from.”
“So, you’re feeling the need to balance your energies?”
She looked over her shoulder. “Yeah. Being hunted, stealing things, and dealing with you, it’s left me a little…out of balance.”
Zayn stepped toward her. “I came here to apologize. I didn’t kiss you because you remind me of Vik. I just…wanted to kiss senseless a hot woman who I’d just enjoyed a brilliant hunt with.”
Ria stopped and stared at him. “Jesus, Phoenix, you have no pretty words do you?”
He shrugged. “I’m just a simple pilot.”
She huffed out a breath. “There’s nothing simple about you. And for some crazy reason, it works for me.”

#Cover Reveal - Mirror Shattered by @KGStutts

Time for a cover reveal! Mirror Shattered is the second book in a sci-fi romance series by new author KG Stutts. The first book, Mirror Image, introduced us to Maddie, a brilliant scientist who finds out she's a clone. Maddie gets swept into a secret world of the Intergalactic Security Commission, an organization which works to keep Earth safe. The primary goal with the ISC is to keep the secret that we aren't alone in the galaxy and not all other planets are as friendly as we are. Maddie works with her counterpart who goes by the name Mack to keep a powerful weapon from falling in the wrong hands. Maddie goes beyond expectations of a clone, and even falls in love.
But now it's two years later. As the team struggles under the leadership of a new commander, news is uncovered which shakes Mack and Maddie to the core. Everything they believed in is shattered, including a loved one. Before they could recover, the team is on a mission to protect a planet from an ogre-like race. The world is attacked by an alien race long thought extinct, the Synth. They barely escaped with their lives, but not without some heavily losses. On the way back home, the ISC's most trusted ally, the Isgurd, delivers more bad news. They can't return home. In fact, home never existed. The Synth managed to go back in time to kill their former commander, Charlie Westlake, before he could befriend the Isgurds and for the ISC. They must go back to 1965 and stop the Synth, even if it means their lives.
Mirror Shattered is a powerful story with a lot of heart. It's a roller coaster ride with huge implications. If you had the option to change the future, would you do it? That's a question Maddie is faced with...

Excerpt:

The ship rocked as a blaster shot from the enemy ship hit but had no damage.
"Shields still holding," Seth announced.
"Someone have a brilliant idea?" John asked.
The ship fell silent. Seth had managed to maneuver the ship to avoid the second blaster charge.
"I think I have it. Fly into that star," Maddie instructed Seth.
"You've got to be kidding me," David said, exasperated.
"The shields will hold," Maddie assured Seth.
Seth looked to Jackson who nodded in agreement with Maddie.
"I hope you know what you are doing," Seth muttered, setting in the coordinates.
Me, too. Maddie thought. But she knew she couldn't lose her nerve now.
"What's your plan?" Jackson asked.
"We can actually use our shields to deflect energy toward our attackers," Maddie responded.
"That sounds dangerous," John warily said.
"It will take everything we have in shields to do this. We'll only get one shot at this. If my math is wrong, it could destroy us," Maddie admitted.
The crew looked on as Seth punched in the coordinates to the nearest star. The attacking ship began to follow suit. Maddie pulled out her data tablet and connected it to the ship.
"Maddie, please be correct," Seth prayed.
Her entire body shook as she turned on her tablet. If she was off in her calculations were off by even a fraction…
"Maddie..." John encouragingly said.
"A minute." She shook her head.
"We don't have a minute, Madison," Jackson sharply said.
"Got it!" she exclaimed, just as the ship entered the star.
The ship began to hum as the shields started pushing back against the star's energy. The enemy stopped its pursuit.

"It's waiting for us to come out," Chris said.
"On my mark, Seth," Maddie said, loading up her newly-written program into the ship's control panel.
"The temperature in the hull is rising," David alerted her.
"I'm aware. We're almost there," Maddie replied.
"I think we have it," Seth said.
"Fire!" Maddie shouted.

CD Brennan - Book Cover

BOOK SYNOPSIS

She left home to find herself...and found love along the way.

Lizzy travels to Scotland to track down her roots, hoping where she comes from will help her figure out where she needs to go. An Aussie girl through and through, tough as nuts and a bit wild, she believes there’s nothing so wonderful as a world seen through wine-tinted glasses...

...until she meets Hottie Hamish, Bridge of Allan’s most eligible bachelor.

Hamish is Lizzy’s polar opposite in every way. He’s serious, driven, and motivated, focused on becoming the youngest associate professor at the Glasgow School of Art. But he’s hiding a social phobia behind his gruff exterior that makes it almost impossible to connect with people...

...until he meets Lost Lizzy, all sunshine and lightness, an Australian beauty with the proverbial heart of gold.

Where they come from may be worlds apart, but atop a Scottish Munro, they begin to realize where they’re going is best traveled side by side.

EXCERPT

Hamish squeezed the steering wheel repeatedly as if it was a soother ball. At least he refrained from grinding his teeth. He turned to Lizzy. “And how do you find this funny?”

“I don’t find it funny, ha ha,” Lizzy stressed. “More funny as in fun.”

“This is fun to you?”

“Sure! Why not? It’s an adventure! Out here on the side of a beautiful mountain under the stars. So we sleep in the car. Sounds good to me. There can only be a few hours until light, anyhoo, right? Not to mention, my adventure is with a fine and handsome Scotsman.” She playfully punched Hamish in the arm, an exaggerated smile on her face. “That’s you, Hamish.”

Luckily the darkness hid the blush that rose from his neck. Even now, he found it hard to believe women found him attractive. Too many embarrassing and awkward moments with girls when he was younger made him think otherwise.

He cleared his throat. He could tell her now about his interview tomorrow, but it wouldn’t help the situation. “I’m worried about Rennie.”

Barely the words were out when Lizzy had hopped over the center console of the front seat and launched herself into the backseat. The jacket she wore caught on his travel coffee mug, spilling the contents onto Lizzy as she landed with a hmph.

“No worries,” she said, smearing the cold coffee into her jeans.

Lizzy peered over the seats, then reached over to stroke each dog’s head.

“Both are sound asleep. Charlie is even snoring--” Lizzy broke off suddenly, turning around to face front. She pulled her knees to her chest. Her teeth were chattering.

“Lizzy, get in with the dogs.”

“Wh-wh-what?” She looked at him as if he was a complete tosser.

Her body had begun to convulse to counterbalance her heat loss.

He drew in a deep breath through his nose and tried again. “Please, get in the back.”

“You wa-wa-want me to go sit with the dogs?”

“Aye.”

“You’re a real shit, ya know. I don’t deserve this. Sure, I know I was out with them all day, but it was ba-ba-better than waiting on your girlfriend.”

“Eh? What are you talking about?” Maybe she had already reached delirium. He needed to get her body temperature up as quickly as possible.

“That princess Marie at your house this morning, she said you said I would cook her breakfast. And there I was serving her food like a ser-ser-servant girl. It wasn’t gourmet cuisine or anything, but I still cooked it for her!”

“Marie?”

“You’re telling me you don’t even remember her name? And here you came across as such a refined gentleman on Sunday. I should have listened to the rumors. They are obviously all true.”

Hamish hadn’t the slightest idea what Lizzy was going on about. Unless she meant his colleague’s daughter who had spent the night. He had barely said two words to her before he excused himself to prepare for his interview. His brother Alasdair had taken her to the Crooked Arm for the pub quiz night.

“I was hired to clean your house and cook some tea for you, not to wait on your shags. You never said anything about cooking for the girls you brought home--”

“I’m going to fold down the seats.” Hamish interrupted her before she got herself worked up any further.

“What the bloody hell for?”

“Lizzy, please! You’re having a delayed hypothermic reaction.”

A confused look passed over Lizzy’s face. “From the cold coffee?”

AUTHOR BIO

Having traveled and lived all over the world, Cd Brennan now talks with a strange accent, a mix of distant terminology, a blend of culturally cute but confusing euphemisms that leaves everyone looking at her with a blank stare. Luckily, her Australian husband (who she met in Ireland) and her two Aussie/Yankee sons have no problem understanding her – well, except for the word NO.

Now settled back “home” in Michigan, she enjoys reliving her glory days by writing about them. She considers the last fifteen years abroad the perfect research for her Love Where You Roam series; matchmaking women and men from different cultures, even different hemispheres, helping them find their true one across oceans of difference.

As destiny plays a hand in all the stories, Cd Brennan truly believes that what is for you, won’t pass you by. She hopes to inspire others to get out there: “Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” [Mark Twain] And of course, fall in love.

Meet the #Author Monday - Sonya Clark

Tell us about Witchlight:

Witchlight is the second book in the Magic Born trilogy, which is a sort of magic-meets-cyberpunk, dystopian, romance mish-mash of genres. In this book, the stakes are raised considerably in this world as conditions worsen for the oppressed Magic Born. Along with that, I explored the life of a secondary character from the first book, Trancehack - Vadim Bazarov. Vadim is a nightclub owner, leader in the witch underground, and all-around shady guy. He needs access to information and materials that will help the underground, and to get it he finds someone in a powerful position in Normal society who is secretly a witch - city councilwoman Lizzie Marsden. Blackmail has always worked for Vadim in the past, but this time he gets more than he bargained for.

What inspired you to write this particular story?:

I gave Trancehack an ending that would allow it to be a standalone in case there was no interest in taking the series further, but my editor Jeff Seymour and Carina Press wanted more. That gave me the chance to write a trilogy and take this world where I wanted it to go.

Probably the other biggest inspiration for Witchlight was Vadim. With each new scene of his in the first book, I wanted the chance to make him the hero of his own story. Though he’d no doubt prefer the term anti-hero.

Please share a favourite snippet from your book:

This short excerpt features Vadim trancehacking, a kind of magic that allows a witch to use astral projection to enter cyberspace.

Trancehacking while high on nightshade always turned the internet into a Kandinsky abstract. The blue-and-white lines of cyberspace widened and stretched like rubber bands, bubbles of random color popping up all over. His consciousness sank deep into trance and even deeper into the greens and purples of the drug, wisps of it wrapping around his perception like fog on a rainy night. Realspace crackled at the edge of his vision as he lifted his glass, draining the drink in one swallow. He blinked away reality and dove fully into cyberspace, hopscotching through hidden links to reach the darknet. Wide lanes of glossy black opened up. Muddy swatches of red haze marked various sites, most of which he ignored out of habit, since he liked his porn live and in person. Password-protected chat rooms glowed in muted shades of blue. He searched for one with ribbons of yellow, red and green woven into the code, so faint the colors were easily missed. There. It pulsed with magic. Vadim opened it with a spell and entered to find he was once again late for the meeting.


Which comes first for you – a character's looks, personality or name?:

The very first thing that comes to me is a character’s goal - what do they want, and why do they want it? Next comes personality, because the character’s personality will largely determine how they go about reaching their goal. What they’re willing to do, what their limits are, that kind of thing. Then I start trying to form an image of them. Names are hard, and with the help of “find and replace” are frequently changed before I finally settle on something.

Any tips for aspiring authors?:

Before you can think about anything else, finish a book. It doesn’t have to be good. It can go in a drawer or a dark corner of your hard drive, never to be read by the public. First novels usually suck, and that’s fine. But you have to know you can finish what you start. Then you can work on the finer points of craft, and learning about publishing.


Questions for fun:
If you had the power of time travel, is there anything you would go back and change?

I would prevent the cancellation of Firefly.

Sorry to give what might seem to be a flippant answer, but time travel is a trope that doesn’t work for me. But I do totally think Firefly was worth saving. J

What super-power would you choose?:

Would the power of never needing to sleep be considered a super-power? It should be, and that’s what I’d choose. Oh, I'd totally bid for that one too. >.<

If you could have three wishes, what would they be?:

To write the tenth season of Supernatural, because DemonDean! Beyond that, I have no idea.

Coffee, tea or wine?:

Coffee.

What is your favourite book? (aside from one of your own!):

Death Is A Lonely Business by Ray Bradbury. It’s a valentine to noir, and to Bradbury’s early days as a writer, trying to get by selling a few stories here and there to pulp magazines. I read it for the first time when I was thirteen years old. I’d already been writing and telling stories, was a voracious reader. But reading this book for the first time was the moment I recognized - this is what I am. I’m a writer.

Favourite genre and why?:

Paranormal, because you can do just about anything with it. Make it funny, make it serious, make it a romance, make it a road trip. There’s an endless amount of lore and mythology to explore. Every aspect of life can be explored through paranormal metaphors. The only limits to how creative a writer can be is their imagination.

Favourite colour?:

Blue.

Upcoming news and plans for the future?:

Firewall, the last book in the Magic Born trilogy, will be released in December. I’ve got a short story in an upcoming anthology called Guns and Romances. For fun I have my free online paranormal serial The Bradbury Institute. And right now I’m in the very early stages of planning my next book.

Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us!

Thank you for inviting me, Pippa!





Blurb:

Councilwoman Elizabeth Marsden is a powerful player in New Corinth politics, but a closely guarded secret could destroy her life—she’s a hidden Magic Born. Her family has gone to great lengths to erase all her magic-related records, until a trancehacking outlaw discovers the last remaining one…

Vadim Bazarov smuggles Magic Borns through the underground railroad and threatens to reveal Elizabeth’s secret unless she helps him access blank ID cards. Elizabeth wants to hate him for having a stranglehold on her life, but can’t help being attracted to someone so sure of who and what he is.

Vadim initially sees her as a political ice queen, but is intrigued by her suppressed magical abilities. He trains Elizabeth to use her magic, and before long finds himself falling for her. But their newfound love may be shortlived; an anti-magic ordinance forces one of them to make a choice that will change both their lives for good.

She can kill with a kiss. But can assassin Tyree also heal one man's grief, and bring peace to a galaxy threatened by war?

For Tyree of the Su, being an assassin isn't simply something she was trained for. It's the sole reason for her existence. A genetically enhanced clone—one of many in Refuge—she's about to learn her secluded lifestyle, and that of all her kind, is under threat by a race capable of neutralizing their special talents to leave them defenseless.

For Zander D'joren, being a diplomat has not only cost him his appearance, but also the love of his life. Scarred, grieving, he must nonetheless continue in his role as co-delegate to the fearsome Tier-vane or risk a conflict that could only end one way.

Now both of them need to keep each other alive and maintain a perilous deception long enough to renegotiate the treaty with the Tier-vane, or throw their people into a war that could wipe out Terrans and Inc-Su alike. But there's more at stake than humanity, whether true or modified. Can the love growing between them save them both? Or merely hasten their destruction?

Going ZIPLESS! Guest post by @DianeDooley #rocker #romance #giveaway

Hiya, everyone! Diane Dooley here to tell you a little about my latest release.

Despite the several careers I’ve already had and despite being in my forties, what I really, really want to be when I grow up is a rock star. It may be a little too late for me, but being that one of my careers is ‘writer,’ I have the privilege of being able to live vicariously through my characters.

The result of my dashed dreams of rockstarism is ZIPLESS, a rock ‘n roll romance--Scottish style.

Wanna meet some of the crew?

Lou: is the manager. More comfortable in Doc Martens than stiletto heels, she’s a bossy, controlling, loving, hard-working, ambitious little Scots-Italian from Glasgow. She named the band Guyville, much to the horror of the guys, who think that makes them sound like a boy band. She also makes them perform the songs she writes. They’re still horribly traumatized from their lone performance of ‘The Bloody Rag,’ Lou’s anguished condemnation of period pain and the price of tampons. Still, they can’t help but love her.

Paolo: is the pretty boy lead guitarist and Lou’s adored baby brother. He fell in love with a little Aussie groupie called Banshee after the Scunthorpe gig and he hasn’t been the same since. A little Goth Yoko Ono in black eye makeup, she insists on accompanying the band on their trip to New York City, where they’ve been booked for a performance on a hugely influential network TV show. Her influence on Paolo is putting stress on the band.

Bluto: is a big lovable drunken lug of a man and the band’s lead singer and rhythm guitarist. It’s his first time out of the UK and he’s gone and fallen head over heels in love with all of New York City’s pretty ladies. Yes, every single one of them.  He’s the peacemaker in the band, and with his attention distracted by all the American beauty on display, things are starting to fall apart.

Zippy: is formerly known as Crash Burns, flamboyant lead guitarist of seminal L.A. glampunk band, Snakebite. They disbanded years ago and, unrecognizable without his trademark makeup and leather thong, Lou taps the tattooed aging hipster for a stress-relieving one night stand. Before they know it, they’re writing impassioned songs about each other, Lou can’t stop thinking about him, and the Zipster decides he ain’t any woman’s one night stand. 

There’s also the reggae-obsessed bassist, Alasdair, master of the incredible sulk, and the perennially intoxicated drummer, Chiz, whose love of women in uniforms might prove to be his undoing. Each will meet very different fates in New York City.

Will Lou be able to pull it all together and get the band ready for their shot at the bigtime? Will she ever tell Zippy her real name? Will Banshee steal Paolo from the band? Just how much do Glaswegian rockers drink, anyway? The answer to these questions and more are in ZIPLESS,  a raunchy, liquored-up comedy of errors.



I’m giving away an e-copy to one of Pippa’s readers. To enter, just tell me the name of your favorite band. 

Thanks for having me Pippa!
