Happy Wednesday! Thank you for visiting me for another Mid Week Tease! Sorry I missed you last week. It was a hectic week, and I came down with a yucky cold. I’m still battling it, but it’s definitely not as bad as it was. Today I’m sharing another excerpt from BRYCE, the first book in my Galactic Defenders scifi adventure romance series.
**Today is the LAST DAY to get BRYCE on sale for 99¢**
Setup: Last time Bryce had returned from Niesgoo and had just learned there were survivors on Hemera after the Erebus attack. But, he still doesn’t know if Lalia and Katrina survived…
Bryce hurried off the platform ahead of his squad and weaved a path through Defenders and traumatized Hemera. The survivors walked around in a state of shock and mourning loved ones common to those who’d witnessed so much destruction. But, he was in no frame of mind to help them. Not until he found Lalia and Katrina alive. He searched faces, none of them familiar, the Defenders already on the planet all new, squads he had never worked with before. Likely their first mission.
In the middle of them all, he spotted Pollux interviewing a survivor and receiving reports from Defenders. He had to know if they’d located the princess.
The Warwa noticed Bryce and nodded. “Excuse me a moment,” he said to the Hemera in front of him.
Bryce tensed as he rushed to the other man, hoping he held good news. “Please tell me you’ve found them.”
“No.” Pollux grabbed his arm. “But someone reported seeing them in the forest, running from an Erebus.”
“Fornax!” The news slammed his heart harder.
“There’s more.” Pollux moved his fingers across the tablet with great speed. “They had a little girl with them. And the princess was limping.”
Bryce looked to the sky and screamed. He should have listened to Lalia when she said she didn’t want to go back to Hemera; his fault for not admitting his relationship to the Alliance. He could have refused the assignment, insisted on staying with Lalia and Katrina on the planet. Then he wouldn’t be wondering if they were still alive, unharmed.
“Please tell me there are Defenders out looking for them.” If not, he’d roll the head of the major in charge of this mission.
“Yes, Zulu is out there.” He showed Bryce coordinates on his screen. “That’s where they are now.”
“Thanks.” Bryce pulled out his WHM and plugged in the position.
The hole had barely opened when he leaped through. On the other side, he searched for the first Defender he saw, a Mingot, and grabbed him by the front of his uniform. “Where are they?” He would not rest until he found them.
