pets2LargeI have cats. More accurately, I’m owned by cats who find me useful because I have opposable thumbs and know how to open doors and work the can opener. I’ve always thought it would be fabulous to legitimately have one of the big cats for a pet, but that’s fraught with difficulties, not the least of which is the ethics. They’re wild animals, not pets, and would be miserable, regardless of how well I cared for them.

In “Pet Trade,” my novella in the Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 anthology, I took the opportunity to explore a hidden facet of the civilization in my Central Galactic Concordance space opera-action-romance series. Whereas CGC has strict laws and harsh penalties against tinkering with human genetics and DNA, animals aren’t so lucky. Even reputable pet trade researchers, genetic designers, bio-engineers, and dealers put profit over compassion. Shadier, cut-throat companies operate in…

Whiskey With My Book

I am very excited today!  A favorite author talking about a favorite series.  Specifically, Pauline Baird Jones talking about the newest book in her Project Enterprise series – Found Girl.  I love her quirky sense of humor.  [Hmm.  That reminds me.  I hope she behaves.]

Welcome Pauline!

*******************

I’d like to thank Riley for inviting me to her blog!

[Looks around for a comfy place to sit and gets distracted by all the books…]

Oh, right, sorry. But she does have some great looking books lying around. I don’t suppose I can just read one?

No.

Okay, I’ll be good.

(Small confession here. I started writing way, way, way back in—well, that’s not relevant. I started writing books because it forced me to “read” slower when I had the write the whole book. I must say, it does really slow you down having to type ALL THE WORDS. Shouldn’t…

Breeder Trilogy by Cara Bristol – Guest Post July 18, 2017

Whiskey With My Book

I am pleased to have Cara Bristol here today to introduce us to her Breeder series, which is being released over the summer.  Having read book 1 (review here), I am happy to recommend this series!

*****************

By Cara Bristol

Breeder is a dark science fiction romance set in a world where love is viewed as weakness and ruthlessly stamped out. Culture and law (called “Protocol” in the books) enforce a caste system, decreeing men to be the natural, rightful rulers and women to be breeding slaves.

In this harsh, brutal misogynistic culture, one man and one woman violate all the rules by falling in love. Their forbidden love sets off a chain reaction that begins to unravel their world.

Each book of Breeder trilogy is a stand-alone romance between a different hero and heroine who find their HEA by the end of the book. There are no…

Newborn by Edward Hoornaert – Review July 13, 2017

Review by KJ Van Houten

Review of Newborn

And now for something completely different! For some reason, the word ‘romp’ comes to mind after I read Newborn. The dictionary defines romp as “a spell of rough, energetic play” and yeah, that sort of fits! If you’ve read any of the other books in the Alien Contact for Idiots universe, you’ll know what I mean. And if you have not read at least the first book is that series, you will find some spoilers here.

When I first picked up Newborn, I didn’t realize it was part of the Alien Contact for Idiots series. As I was reading, I kept seeing names for people and places and thinking, why do these sound familiar when I know I haven’t read this book! It finally struck me, doh! While Newborn can be read standalone, there is definitely some background that will…

Farewell_Andromeda-Final-200x300Okay, now it’s Laurie’s turn.  Sorry about the mix-up last week.

Laurie’s been a busy girl the last few years.  Here’s what she sent me-

Hi! Thanks for the opportunity to catch up from days of yore on CritiqueCircle. Let me start by backtracking about six years.   https://www.critiquecircle.com/default.asp

In 2011 and 2012, I was a three-time finalist in the RWA Golden Heart© Awards for three different unpublished science fiction romance novels. Since then, my first novel, (originally titled P2PC) was published as Inherit the Stars in 2015.

Inherit_the_Stars_Complete_Novel-200x300Inherit the Stars won the 2016 Carolyn Readers Choice Award and was named by LibraryJournal.com as one of the Best Books of 2015 in E-Originals.

But my novel wasn’t actually my first published work. That was a novelette, Farewell Andromeda, a romance between a female deep space charter pilot and a famous astronomer (…or is he)? It’s currently available at no cost via InstaFreebie as a special…

Name   Laurie A. Green

Age  Hmm. Do I have to be honest? Okay, okay. I’m 61. But in my head, I’m still in my 30s. Where has the time gone?

Where are you from

I’m originally from Michigan, but wanted to live in the Southwest from my first visit as a teen. Just felt like I belonged here. My husband and I moved to the Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1988, and my first thought was, “I’m home!”

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

It’s exciting and it just broke! I was one of the authors in the very popular Pets in Space collection, a series of stories by award-winning and bestselling science fiction romance authors that included pets…in spaaaace. It was named one of the Best Books of 2016 in Fiction E-Originals by LibraryJournal.com. This October, a second collection will be released titled: Embrace the Romance: Pets…
