Crazy Canuck Canada Day Blog Hop Summer 2016

Thank you so much to author Lisa Emme for organizing this hop!

Canada Day Blog Hop

When I think of Canada Day, I think of so many things. Lately, with all the turmoil around the world, I think of how glad I am to live in this great country. I also think of spending time with family, a barbeque, fireworks, Celestial Seduction, and how many years I’ve been published. You see, on July 1st, 2011, my first story was published. So, today is the book birthday for Celestial Seduction and my five-years published anniversary. Plus, I just released the first book in a new series.

If the weather cooperates, I’ll be at a barbeque this evening and watching fireworks tonight, but I’ll also be celebrating all month long. Stay tuned to my posts on this blog all month long for more information on giveaways, sales, and more!

#MidWeekTease: She grew up believing she belonged in BRYCE #sfr #romance #books

Get teased, titillated, and tantalized with this week's Mid Week Tease

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for Mid Week Tease. Today, I’m sharing an excerpt from BRYCE, which released yesterday. Enjoy!

New Release! Bryce, book one of Jessica E. Subject's new sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders

Setup: I’ve been sharing excerpts from the first scene in BRYCE as part of Weekend Writing Warriors. This excerpt is still part of the first scene, but in Lindsay’s (or Lalia’s) point of view…

Lindsay shivered as the Kalaren Galactic Defender eyed her, his brow ridge prominent in his look of disdain. Glancing away from his stare, she pressed her temples. She never should have escaped to this planet. Her fate was to die like everyone else back home, not to pretend to be a Terran, to have a life when none of her kind survived the Erebus attacks on Hemera. They had to have followed her to Earth somehow, and now they would destroy those she knew, and eventually all of Earth.

The Kalaren slammed Katrina’s knife on the table. “Where did you get a zuranium blade?”

“It is an heirloom belonging to my family for generations.” Turning her back to him, she pulled her hair aside, exposing the back of her neck. “I’m the only Hemera to survive the Erebus attack.”

Her daughter gasped beside her. “What the hell does that mean? Mom, you said those spots were just a bunch of birthmarks we shared. What’s going on?”

“Give me a minute, and I’ll explain everything.” The truth wouldn’t be easy for her daughter to hear. Not after growing up believing she belonged on the planet.

“Impossible.” The Defender moved behind Lindsay and ran his fingers along the back of her neck, over her people’s markings, a bold move for a stranger, especially one not from Earth. His touch sent a thrill through her body, one she hadn’t experienced for a long time. Not since Quinn had last made love to her, a year before he’d presented her with divorce papers. Though her ex-husband—visiting to celebrate Katrina’s eighteenth birthday and now dead on the deck outside the patio window—had never been able to penetrate the part of her heart belonging to a man from her past, and from the same planet as the Kalaren touching her.

“You are a Comosova. You’re royalty.” The Kalaren moved in front of her and bent down on one knee with a quick bow of his head. “Lalia, I am very sorry I failed to save your partner. I should have been there to defend him, and I failed.”

Comosova? Lalia? How did he know her former identity? Lindsay hooked a finger under the Kalaren’s chin and lifted until his gaze met hers. She stared into his eyes, looking for something familiar. A long time ago, she’d fallen in love with a Kalaren Defender, but her parents had convinced her she provided a diversion for him, believed Kalarens stole the innocence of women all over the universe before moving on to the next pretty face. Had the man she’d given her virginity to, the one who’d stolen her heart, found her again on this planet?

“Mom, what’s going on?” Katrina slapped her hands on the table. “What were those ugly things in the backyard? What did they do to Dad?”

Lindsay tucked memories of her first love away. She turned in her chair and gazed across the table to her daughter who had been adopted by Quinn the day of her birth. After the divorce, her ex-husband only showed up on Katrina’s birthdays. And, over all those years, Lindsay had tried to keep her heritage from Katrina. What child wanted to know her mother came from another planet? Or could keep the fact a secret? She refused to have her daughter taken by children’s services because they believed her an unfit mother. But, after today, her daughter needed to know the truth. “The Erebus invaded my home planet of Hemera. I saw my parents murdered, and then, before I could comprehend the loss, the attack on the planet, my handler whisked me away to Earth. She didn’t survive the flight, so I am the last of my kind.”

“Not so.” The Kalaren rested his hands on her shoulders and began to lightly massage. Another bold move. Could he possibly be the Defender she remembered?

NEW RELEASE THANK YOUS…

Galactic Defenders, a sci-fi romance series by Jessica E. Subject ~ Coming in 2016!As with any new release, there are many people to thank who helped me along the way. With this story, I must first and foremost thank author Deborah Cooke. Her guidance and prodding to get this story written the way it should have been all along, I am immensely grateful for. Thank you to my fabulous cover artist at Fantasia Frog Designs, who started this series off with a spectacular cover. I cannot wait to see the next ones! And thank you to my wonderful editor, Kate Richards, who helped me to make this story shine.

Thank you to Alisha Robinson for beta reading this story and to Michelle Willms, Abe Ocfemia, Kacey Hammell, and Taryn Kincaid from my reader group who helped me to name one of the bad guys in the story. (I still have a list of the names, and one of them may be the title of a future Galactic Defenders book.) Thank you, as always, to my amazing family, for your patience and understanding, especially when I’m lost in the worlds I like to create. And THANK YOU, dear reader, for taking a chance on a new series. I hope you love my Defenders!

blog excerpt 2016

Bryce kicked a stray Erebus tentacle as he passed the creature. Immediately after he’d sent Lalia and her daughter through the wormhole, three of the aliens had busted down the front door and barged inside. Without the two women to worry about, he’d downed every one of the Erebus and established a perimeter at the front of the house.

“Here’s my report.” He tapped his tablet to the one belonging to Pollux, a Warwa who’d recently joined the cleanup crew and quickly risen to the top field position.

Pollux nodded. “I heard the lost princess of Hemera lived here. Who would have guessed she’d fled to Earth?”

Bryce’s thought, too. He’d searched for her a long time after the Erebus attack on Hemera, refused to believe she’d been killed along with her parents. Without anyone finding any trace of what might have once been her body, he continued to listen for rumors of her whereabouts with every mission. But the trail had remained cold no matter which planet he visited.

“Yeah, I’ve gotta get to her and her daughter.” Bryce jerked a thumb over his shoulder. “Sent them through a wormhole to the safe house. You’re okay if I leave you?”

“Yes.” Pollux pulled his tablet to his chest. “You secured the perimeter, and we haven’t seen anything for hours anyway.”

“Great, thanks.” He pulled out his wormhole maker, WHM, ready to press the button to go to Lalia.

“Major, wait!” Pollux nodded toward the back of the house. “What do you want me to do about the deceased?”

Glancing out the patio doors, Bryce sighed at the sight of the thick black puddle formerly a man named Quinn. “The only thing you can do. Clean him up and create a cover story to explain the disappearance of the family.”

“Got it.” Pollux nodded then waved.

Bryce clicked the WHM and launched himself into the wormhole. He’d left Lalia too long, had so many questions for her. Yet, he dreaded having to face her. Over the years, he’d forgotten the feelings he’d had for her, what it felt like to run his hands over her soft curves, savor her quiet moans as they made love. Seeing her again brought everything rushing back, distracting him from his purpose. And because he hadn’t been fully alert, an Erebus had gotten past him and killed the man who had made Lalia happy, had given her a family. Something he’d never had the chance to do.
