Here’s an excerpt from ACCIDENTAL ROMANCE:

“So, how are you feeling, LA?” Jake sauntered into the room, his worried expression replaced with a cocky grin.

God, she hated that look. It meant he was planning something, ready with another prank. And using his nickname for her, LA, another sign he was up to no good. Things were different now though. She wouldn’t be working with him every day, and the thought made her stomach twist.
“Oh, fine, Jake-a-roo. I’m missing a hand, but otherwise, just peachy.”

“Great, then get the hell out of bed.”

She drew in a quick breath. How dare he talk to her like that. She was in the hospital. “Did you not hear me? My hand is gone.” How could anyone forget? She never would.

“Yes, your hand, not your legs.” He shucked the blankets off her. “So, get off your ass, and let’s go for a walk.”

“I only have a hospital gown on. I can’t go wandering around.” Reaching for the sheets, she tried to cover herself, but he refused to give them back. “C’mon Jake, this is embarrassing.” She didn’t need him or anyone else in shock from an accidental flash.

He finally let go, only to march over to her small closet and grab her robe. “Put this on.” He tossed it at her. “Otherwise, I’m going to carry you out into the hall and plop you down on the floor.”

“You’re such an ass.”

His shit-eating grin returned. “I know, but I refuse to let you sit around and throw a pity party.” He gripped her arms and stared into her eyes, as serious as when he’d arrived. “You’re not dead.”

The intensity radiating from him stole her breath. She was seeing a side of Jake he’d never revealed before. Why? She gasped, struggling for air. What was she supposed to say? He didn’t understand. She had to thank him, yes, thank her hero. “Jake, thank you. You…you saved me.”

“Yes, I did.” His gaze traveled down her body, leaving a trail of goose bumps. Then he glanced at the door. “Let’s go, LA.”

Shit, he wasn’t going to give up. Might as well placate him. Pressing her hand onto the mattress, she swung her legs off the side. She slipped her feet into her fuzzy slippers and stood up, immediately feeling a cool breeze across her back. Most days, she welcomed air conditioning, but not today. “I, um, need some help with the robe.”

When Jake returned his focus to her, his cheeks flushed. “Yeah, I guess you do.”

He held it open while she slipped her arms into the sleeves, the first with ease, the second, not so much. The dressing around the end of her nub caught in the fleece. Pain sliced through her arm, and she yelped.

“Sorry.” His face drained of all color. He yanked the robe off her bandages and draped it over her right shoulder then secured the tie at her waist. “I guess it’s going to take us all some time to get used to this.”

“Yeah.” Except he didn’t have to get used to anything. Leanne wouldn’t return to the fields or the barn. The only time she’d see him was the occasional night her parents invited him to stay for dinner. And even then, he wouldn’t have anything to do with her except friendly conversation.

“Since there’s no longer a chance of you showing off your sexy pink hearts to everyone….” He winked at her. “Let’s go for our walk.”

#WeWriWa: Will they kiss in ALWAYS HER WINGMAN? #scifi #romance #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week! Here’s another (unedited) snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN.

Set-up: After their unwise decision to race to the door, Colin pulled Hannah down on top of him. While she still has a boyfriend, this is what happens…


She gazed into his eyes, only there was nothing peaceful about them. They lit up with blue flames, igniting her too long dormant desires.

Her heart thumped against her rib cage. She couldn’t move, didn’t know if she wanted to. Every nerve ending tingled, those in contact with him on fire.

He lifted his head up, and she sank deeper into his heated gaze. His lips brushed against hers, sweeping across the open wound, lingering until he kissed her. Slow, sweet, and oh so magical. Her skin sizzled from his touch.

Wrapping his hands under her thighs, he pulled her closer.

ALWAYS HER WINGMAN blurb…

Staff Sergeant Hannah Coriveau dedicated the last five years to the Space Military Command. Heading back to Earth, she’s ready to begin civilian life and reunite with her parents and the boyfriend she left behind. The person she’ll miss most is Garish—her wingman, best friend, and the one who made her regret not being single.

Senior Airman Colin Garish wants his squadron leader. Bad. After spending so much time by her side—both in the Martian skies and on the red planet—being her friend isn’t enough. When Hannah learns of her boyfriend’s infidelity, Colin is there to comfort her.

Before Colin has the chance to confess his feelings, Hannah receives worse news from home. Her father is dying. Seeing her devastation, Colin remains the friend she desperately needs. But in her grief, she pushes him away. Will Hannah let him back in her life when they land on Earth? Or will Colin never get the chance to win her heart?

BEYOND REACH

by Jessica E. Subject

Chapter One

Benignus eyed him, as if confident he would change his mind. “Mekai, are you certain you want to go through with this?”

Grinning at his fair-haired friend, Mekai had no doubt. He’d made his decision long ago. “Yes, go in there and enjoy the woman you have craved for more than two star cycles. I have no use for her.”

“And when the king comes in?” Benignus scanned the tapestry-rich corridors of the castle’s west wing. “I know he’s going to send me to Tenebrae.”

“He’s not going to send you to the prison colony.” No one had been sent there from Carbae, ever. The planet was simply used as an idle threat to misbehaving children. Mekai placed his hands on his friend’s shoulders. “I give you permission to deflower my betrothed. She will be yours, as it should have always been. Just be sure she is on top when we come into the room.”

He slid open the door to his grand suite, a place he would not return to any time soon, not before experiencing what the universe had to offer. “She waits for you. Now, go in there and take her.”

His friend and gentleman of the bedchamber patted him on the back. “Thank you, Mekai, and star’s speed.”

After shoving Benignus through the door, Mekai waited in the hollow silence—usual for this part of the castle—for some indication his plan had worked before leaving to search for his father. Through the darkness engulfing his room, he couldn’t see a thing, but the sounds of wet lips in action caught his attention.

His cock stirred. Almost there.

Rubbing his hands down his arms, he tried to escape the chill common to the kingdom. The sun didn’t shine underground and fires only burned in the kitchen and the north wing, where his parents slept.

“Oh, Mekai, I’m so glad you decided to deflower me before our wedding night. Take me this instant.”

Don’t fail me now, Ben.

“No, Madelia. It’s me, Ben. Don’t worry. No one will know.”

“Oh, even better. Will Mekai be joining us?”

A threesome? Oh, gods. Could he get any harder? He and Ben often discussed sex, what their first time would be like, and whom they wanted to lose their virginity to. He’d had plenty of offers from fair maidens, those he could never have any affection for. Not with the strange woman invading his dreams every night. A woman he cherished and had made love to in the fantasia world for as long as he knew the definition of sex. Though, he had yet to meet her, and never would if he didn’t leave Carbae.

Ben, though, had always been fond of Madelia. She had never shown any interest in him before tonight, but Mekai, betrothed or not, refused to betray his best friend.

He’d plotted this night ever since his wedding date had been set, for no matter how hard he tried, he could never care for Madelia. Watching his parents pretend to love each other over the years had been enough for him. No way in Tenebrae did he want the same kind of relationship for himself. And then, he’d heard rumors from the bajulus who brought supplies to the kingdom about a planet in the Wopavian system where visitors paid to receive sexual pleasure from the revered Suavitas. That was where he planned to travel. He wanted to experience every sensation before he settled down with anyone. And maybe, if he proved lucky, he could forget about the fantasy woman. Once his marriage was called off, he planned to sneak away from Carbae and get busy living.

A whimper broke the silence. “Oh, Benignus, how you fill me so.”

His cock jumped, demanding attention. He’d love no more than to watch them fuck, stroking himself while thinking of the woman of his dreams. But then he’d never get a chance to leave.

Rushing down the corridor, he ignored the lavish silks of purple and gold hanging on the walls, for the extravagance did not suit him. He wanted to rule his father’s kingdom on Carbae, the moon of Ubetron, no more than he wanted Madelia as his queen. Not until he was ready to settle down. The excessiveness of this lifestyle had never held any appeal to him anyway. Even as a child, he’d preferred to explore the caves of Carbae with the common children, or stow away on a supply ship to visit other planets, only to be dragged back home by his guard.

Reaching his father’s study, he burst through the door. The warmth hit him like a brick wall. He drew in a quick breath. “Father, I need your help. Benignus is very ill. He’s been in the lavatory with the sickness. I believe he ate some tainted food.”

The king peered up, examining him. “No one else has shown any signs of the sickness. Seriously, at twenty-one star cycles, I would expect the two of you to have outgrown your antics. What kind of trouble have you gotten into this time?”

“No trouble at all, sir. Please help him. I have him resting in my bed now, but he is too ill to move to his own quarters.”

“Thornton!”

The stout man—and the only Terran friendly with his father—entered the room as soon as the king beckoned. “Yes, Your Majesty?”

“Fetch the doctor and bring him up to the prince’s quarters.” The king stood up, his purple robe billowing behind him. “Let’s go.”

Mekai hurried to follow his father, hoping Benignus had stuck to the plan and would last long enough to get caught.

“Were you in those caves again? You know the black magic there causes the sickness.”

He sighed. The humid caves were filled with bacteria, occasionally causing visitors to become sick if they didn’t wash after returning from them. His father, though, preferred to live in his own fantasy world. “No, Father, we went directly to my quarters after dinner.”

“Honestly, you two cause more trouble than any common child.”

His father reached his suite first. The lights flashed on and in an instant, they were treated to a view of Madelia, who sat on top of Benignus, speared by his cock.

“What is the meaning of this?” The king’s face turned from its usual shade of blue to bright red, heat radiating from his body even in the cooler part of the castle.

Benignus scrambled out from under Madelia. He held his stomach. “I was there lying on the bed and she climbed on top of me. I was too weak to push her off.”

Smirking behind his father, Mekai winked at his friend.

Madelia chose that moment to turn around and glare at him.

“And you, woman?” the king asked.

She cowered under his father’s glare. “I thought he was…. Oh, fuck. I was set up.”

“No one talks like that to me or anyone while on my land.”

Everyone cringed. His father hadn’t been born into a kingdom, but had given himself the title after settling on Carbae. He’d been the president of Ubetron, and when he and his followers left for the moon, he’d changed his title to king, and declared the state a monarchy. Though Mekai had never understood why his father left in the first place. Every picture he’d seen of his birth planet, the luscious forests and open sky, had left him with an ache to flee from Carbae.

But oh gods, his childhood had been hell, growing up in the cold-climate underworld. He’d been a toddler when his father moved him there. He grew up speaking in the “proper manner,” yet his schoolmates spoke in the old world way. He’d learned the rough dialect and every curse word, yet he took care to revert back to the royal tongue when at home in the castle. He couldn’t wait to leave.

“Mekai.” His father pulled him forward. “Since she is your betrothed, you must decide her fate.”

Just as he’d hoped.

He stuck out his chest, attempting to appear noble while his insides jumped for joy. “Since Madelia deflowered herself with my gentleman of the bedchamber, she shall be bound to him for the rest of her life.”

“Then let it be so,” the king proclaimed.

Benignus grinned. He finally had the woman he’d always wanted. Mekai yearned to find an ounce of his friend’s happiness.

“Gentleman of the bedchamber, my ass. More like jack-off partner,” Madelia muttered. “At least he knows how to fuck,” she said, tossing her comment in Mekai’s direction.

Thornton and the doctor appeared at the door, panting like Terran dogs. “Is everything all right, Your Majesty?”

Time to go. Mekai refused to stick around for Ben’s betrothal ceremony, for surely they would have another woman for him by then, too.

“Prince Mekai, where are you going?”

Shit! He refused to turn around and acknowledge his father’s question, for the king would never chase after him. And the two men who would still had to catch their breath.

Mekai rushed to the south wing and down a flight of stairs, toward his waiting Personal Space Transport Vehicle. He’d already packed clothing appropriate for Schedar’s warmer climate and enough nourishment to last his entire journey inside the PSTV.

He climbed in. After starting the engines, Mekai steered the ship up the narrow rock tunnel and out into space. The fold that would take him to the Wopavian system lay straight ahead.

So long, Carbae. I’m off to live my life.

#WeWriWa: Plummeting to the ground in ALWAYS HER WINGMAN #scifi #romance #scifirom

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to everyone who commented last week! Here’s another (unedited) snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN.

Set-up: Hannah has challenged Colin to a race to the door. Remember, they haven’t experienced full gravity for five years, and still have to go through physical therapy on the moon base before they can return to Earth. Here is how the race goes…


He fell backward, his eyes widening and jaw dropping open as he plummeted closer and closer to the ground.

She didn’t realize he’d grabbed her hips until she tumbled toward him with no chance to stop herself. She crashed onto his chest, the air forced from her lungs. Her chin smacked the top of his rib cage, snapping her jaw and making her eyes water. Sucking in air, she tasted blood.

“Shit, Sergeant, are you all right?”

She licked her lip, finding the source of the blood. “I think so, just bit my lip. You?”

“Um…, he groaned, shifting underneath her.


ALWAYS HER WINGMAN blurb…

Staff Sergeant Hannah Coriveau dedicated the last five years to the Space Military Command. Heading back to Earth, she’s ready to begin civilian life and reunite with her parents and the boyfriend she left behind.
