A war between the Supernaturals and Humans ~ HUNTER REBORN by @KatieReus #PNR #shifter

Hunter Reborn by Katie ReusThe thrilling new Moon Shifter novel from New York Times bestselling author Katie Reus.

Losing her was the hardest thing he’d ever endured….

Warrior shifter Aiden’s investigation of the trafficking of vampire blood leads to a startling discovery: the beautiful vampire bondmate he thought was dead. Decades ago, they’d defied their powerful families to be together, but then Larissa disappeared without a trace. When their mating link broke, it nearly destroyed Aiden. Now she’s back with no memory of where she’s been. Even more shattering—Larissa claims she has no idea who Aiden is.

Now she’s back….

It’s a race against time to bring down an operation more evil than his pack ever suspected, and Aiden finds himself working side by side with a mate who no longer trusts him—and she wants out. But he lost her once, and he won’t let her go again. Unfortunately, Larissa’s blood is the key to a powerful monster’s dangerous plan—and he’ll stop at nothing to destroy her, sparking off a war between the supernaturals and humans that no one will win.

Enjoy An Excerpt

Copyright © Katie Reus 2015

As she tried to decide where to go a blur of fur hurtled through the air at her. Before she could move, the all-white wolf slammed into her, tackling her to the ground. He rolled their bodies so he took the brunt of the fall.

Surprise ricocheted through her. When he shifted to human form and she found herself pinned underneath the Adonis-looking shifter with blond hair and dark eyes she immediately struck out at him. Weak or not, if this male had killed her parents she’d gut him.

Claws and fangs descended, she slashed at his middle, ripping open his stomach.

“Damn it, Larissa!” He managed to grab her wrists in an impossibly tight grip and hold them above her head, but she didn’t stop.

It vaguely registered that he said her name in a familiar way. As if he had intimate knowledge of her. Kicking and bucking against him, she kneed him hard between the legs as she twisted around to bite his forearm.

The second his blood coated her tongue, a familiar sensation flowed through her with shocking intensity. The taste made her think of raw, earthy sex. She stilled underneath him. He remained on top of her, holding her, and when she met his gaze she could sense his wariness. But he wasn’t trying to hurt her. And he hadn’t been attacking her, just pinning her down and taking her blows.

She tensed when she heard someone nearby, their footfalls soft against the snow, barely indiscernible. The male heard it too and lifted his head, but he never took his dark gaze from hers. “Stay back, I’ve got this.”

“Why do you taste familiar?” she whispered, battling confusion. His blood was still on her tongue and it made her think of dirty, sensual things that shocked her. Even more shocking, she wanted to drink from him.

The male’s eyes bored into hers. Intense. Heated. “Because you’ve tasted every inch of my body, drank from me, defied your coven to be with me.” The longing in his eyes pierced her. He meant every word he was saying. He wasn’t lying. Or he didn’t believe he was lying.

If it was true, she didn’t remember any of it. She fought a shiver. Everything in her brain was muddled and the pain intermixed with desire she saw in that dark gaze was too much. She was so fucking confused right now and sensing his pain hurt her. Even if she didn’t understand why, she felt his agony bone deep and she desperately wanted to comfort him. She swallowed hard and resisted that urge. “Why can I feel your pain?”

He loosened his grip, freeing her wrists. But he didn’t sit back. Just placed his hands in the light layer of snow on either side of her head, that gaze locked on hers. “Because we’re bondmates.”

#SFRMonday ~ Freedom has a cost in THE KING’S MISTRESS by @RachelLeighGeek #scifirom

#SFRMondayToday for #SFRMonday, I present to you book two in Rachel Leigh Smith’s series, A’yen’s Legacy, The King’s Mistress…

The King's Mistress by Rachel Leigh SmithTHE KING’S MISTRESS

A’yen’s Legacy, Book Two

by Rachel Leigh Smith

Freedom has a cost. Can A’yen pay it without losing his soul?

Liberation of the enslaved Lokmane begins with the king. A’yen and Fae agree to visit the Hidden, a group of escaped Lokmane, to protect his identity while the Shadows make their move with emancipation acts. But he’s not prepared for the prejudice rampant in the Hidden, or their lack of patience for him. And his new linked bodyguard is unstable to the point A’yen fears for the young man’s sanity.

Upon returning to Titan, A’yen is kidnapped and taken to the largest breeding farm in the galaxy. This time he’ll be himself even if it kills him. His resolve to unite his people grows as he wonders if he’ll live long enough to do it.

With A’yen kidnapped, Fae returns to the Lokmane homeworld seeking the final pieces of what happened two thousand years ago when they were conquered and enslaved. Getting as far away from her father as possible is the only way to keep her from disappearing too.

Separated by light years, A’yen and Fae have to stand alone and fight for their right to live in freedom. No matter the cost.

Fae turned by degrees to face him. She tried to glare at him, but eyes reflecting unshed tears said she’d never been more thankful to see him. More fingers of warmth moved through his body. He went to her, folded her in his arms, stared at Benai Hart. She pressed into the safety of his embrace, her trembling forcing the pain to the back of his mind.

“Do you not know who I am?”

“I do. I bow to no one.”

Hart came forward two steps. Fae let go, turned to face her father, and held her hand up. “Don’t you dare. One thing you do understand is property rights and I forbid you to touch what belongs to me.”

A’yen grit his teeth to keep his mouth shut. Being referred to as property didn’t sit well. Brought his hackles up, in fact. She was right, though. Hart understood him only as property. Never as a person. One touch from Hart and he’d be a heap on the floor, totally helpless.

“What belongs to you?” Hart laughed, a bitter sound devoid of mirth. “We both know he cost more than your yearly salary.”

“I didn’t use one cent from you. It all came out of my inheritance from Mom. Tomorrow will be thirty days since we were in the registry office signing the binding papers. Not even you can undo it.” Her voice picked up strength as she talked and the trembling dissipated.

Hart’s right arm went up, the back of his hand poised to strike. A’yen reached out, grabbed his wrist, and squeezed the pressure points. “Don’t you dare.”

He didn’t have the strength to keep the pressure even and Hart jerked his hand free. “If you ever touch me again I’ll make you wish you were dead.”

“I am not afraid of you.”

Hart stood toe-to-toe with Fae, looking past her as if she didn’t exist. “You should be.”

A’yen shook his head. “You’re the one who should be afraid. Now, if you insist on staying, you will be civil to your daughter, or you’re the one whose mind will get messed with.”

It was Hart’s turn to shake his head as he stepped back, eyes hardening. “I underestimated you.”

“Most humans do.”

“Do not underestimate me.” Hart pointed in A’yen’s face.

“Wouldn’t dream of it.” The warmth receded for a moment. He gripped Fae’s waist, leaning his chest against her back to keep from collapsing. The warmth returned and he straightened again.

Hart’s eyes widened for a moment then a mask of neutrality slid across his face. “I’ll give you some time to think about what I said, Farran.” He brushed past them. The door banged shut behind him.

A’yen let go of Fae and sank to the floor, managing to catch himself on the edge of the couch and rest his head on the cushions. Fae knelt, threaded her fingers through his, stroked the side of his face with her other hand. “How did you make it in here?”

“I have no idea.”

The door opened and shut again. A’yen lifted his head to find Pete in the doorway. “How the hell did you get all the way in here?”

He let his head fall. The warmth slipped out of him and the fire roared through exhausted muscles. A groan slid out. Fae’s lips brushed his temple. “Yet to be determined.”

The couch moved as Pete sat on it. “Na’var called as I was getting ready to leave and said to hightail it back because Hart was here. Was that him leaving?”

“Yeah. Things were calm for a couple hours, and he asked all the dutiful questions of someone feigning interest. Then he started getting mad because A’yen was here and…” She sucked in a shuddering breath.

A’yen ignored the pain as best he could, and pulled her into his arms again. “I don’t think he was feigning interest. He really wants to know how much we found.”

Pete nodded. “You didn’t say anything to tip your hand, did you?”

“I don’t think so. He’s not stupid though. Eventually they will figure it out.”

Fae shuddered in his arms and he pillowed his cheek on the top of her head. “If he does, he’ll kill you.”

Made For Her by Jessica E. Subject

Set-up: Mikayla and Dare are having a secret relationship. Not only is she his superior officer, but Dare is a clone. On this evening, they are celebrating Dare receiving his pilot wings.

Pulling her against him, he gently kissed her lips, but she felt his hunger grow. His tongue sought entrance, sweeping inside her until the kiss consumed her every thought.

Then he let her go. “The food smells delicious. Let’s eat.”

In an attempt to uncurl her toes, she breathed deep. He always managed to rev her engines with a single kiss. “Yes, but don’t eat too much. We’ll be having dessert after.”

He grabbed her ass as she stood at the oven, placing lasagna onto their plates. “Dessert is looking mighty fine right now.”

His teeth and tongue grazed the side of her neck, making her shiver in anticipation.

“Sorry, I had to take a taste.”

Moisture pooled between her legs. Maybe dessert before dinner isn’t such a bad idea.

Is the astronomer a cure for the space pilot’s broken heart? FAREWELL ANDROMEDA by @SFRLaurie A. Green #scifirom

Farewell Andromeda by Laurie A. Green

FAREWELL ANDROMEDA

by Laurie A. Green

Fresh off a painful jilting, the last thing deep space pilot Tiharra Bell needs is another romantic entanglement. Certainly not with the galaxy’s most famous astronomer—who also happens to be single, inconveniently handsome, and a resident of the remote Andromeda Station. But Tiharra soon discovers two terrible truths about Dr. Dante “Donner” Dane 1) he’s not the man he appears to be and 2) he doesn’t have long to live. Before her fourteen day layover is complete, she’ll put her life and career on the line to protect his heartbreaking secret.

blog space excerpt

I met the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with ten days before he died. Someday, I’ll look back at that time on Andromeda Station and laugh.

I crash landed into Dr. Dante Dane six steps inside the hatch of Trajectory Virtual Pub 7. I knew his name and a good chunk of his bio before he even spoke. I had the advantage.

But he had the element of surprise. “Dance with me, boonie.”

He had me pegged at a glance. Boonie. Independent deep space charter pilot. Good guess on his part, but an easy one with his IQ. You didn’t get much deeper in space than Andromeda Station—perched on the extreme outer fringes of the Milky Way—and I was still sporting my non-standard issue flight jacket and independent star wings. I’d been making my way to the Station Berthing Office when the Pied Piper of a stiff drink called to me.

Running into Tall, Dark, and Smiling hadn’t really been in my game plan.

He settled his warm hand low on the small of my back, inviting me to accompany him to the packed cydosonic dance floor. A heavy bass thumped beneath the trill of a wild counter-melody. My instincts shouted Abort launch! but my curiosity overrode my internal warning system. I was too flattered by his crafty smile and seeking eyes.

On the dance floor, he turned to face me. “What’s your name, boonie?”

“Captain Bell.”

“Captain.” He made a slight bow. “Less formally known as?”

“Tiharra.”

“Tiara?” That smile again. “Like a princess wears?”

“Tee-hara. Like the Egponna tree.”

“Ah, the Tiharra tree. Egponna Maximus heraldi angelus. Also called the Angel Willow. Known for graceful, weeping foliage that resembles feathered wings.”

“That’s the one.”

“Angel fits you better.” He gave me another generous smile. Nice, even white teeth.

I threw him my patented lopsided smirk. It wasn’t love at first sight, but it was definitely intrigue at first contact.
