About Rescuing Prince Charming

Dusty Johnson, a self-styled ordinary, everyday woman, responds with extraordinary heroism when saboteurs try to bomb the prototype of Earth’s first starship. Although she yearns to return to anonymity, that moment of courage propels her ever deeper into dangers that tear the scabs off her dark secrets—and thrust her into the arms of the unattainable man of her dreams.

Reese Eaglesbrood, an alien prince, yearns to restore his tattered reputation by guiding the starship project to completion, but his fascination with the unassuming heroine threatens to undermine his fragile authority. Shunning Dusty is necessary, yet unthinkable—and when the saboteurs strike again, she is his only ally against Earth’s most elusive enemies.

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

Excerpt from Rescuing Prince Charming

Dusty headed toward the engine’s far end, where unexpectedly large equipment had turned a passage into a tunnel just big enough to crawl through. The tunnel led to a…

Review by Riley.

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

About Perfect Gravity

Second in a snarky, sexy sci-fi romance series with the perfect balance of humor, heart, and heat. When someone tries to kill powerful continental senator Angela Neko, Texan outlaw and old flame Kellen Hockley is the only man who can keep her safe…and help her save the world.

Kellen Hockley usually keeps quiet about his past, but once upon a time he loved a girl named Angela. He hasn’t seen her in a decade, but now he has to break the news to her that his team of rogue treasure hunters accidentally killed her husband. He’s had better days…

It’s not the news that’s delivered to Angela Neko that breaks her apart—it’s the rumbly, Texas drawl delivering it. She can’t believe she’s hearing Kellen’s voice again. But there’s no time for distractions. When Angela’s own life is threatened, yielding up all of her…

*******************
About Star Hero

An imperfect hero battles his inner demons in a race against time to save the woman he loves…

First he had to rescue her. Then he’d try to win her back.

A Marine serving in the galactic frontier, Lieutenant Lukas Frank has a lot in common with a street dog named Bang-Bang; they both started off as scrappy orphans fighting to survive–and beat the odds. Things change when Bang-Bang leads Lukas to starpilot Captain Carlynn Riga. The tough war hero learns what it means to surrender–his heart. Lukas’s struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, threaten to tear the three of them apart, but nothing threatens them more than when Carlynn goes missing in action. Now the rugged, emotionally scarred Marine and his K-9 partner must find Carlynn and bring her home, or risk losing everything he has finally found worth fighting for.

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…

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…

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…
