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.”

As many of you know, I am part of the upcoming Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 anthology. It is a collection of 12 brand new Sci-Fi Romance stories which feature pets. Not only that, but these pets are key to bringing the hero and heroine together. I was thrilled when I was invited to be part of this anthology, and I knew almost immediately what story I would write for it. Today, I’d like you to meet Elynyn, the pet in my story. She is a tibbar, which is similar to a baby rabbit, but with hamster-like claws and ears. Plus, she has the intelligence of a cat, which means she can and does get into all kinds of trouble. I’ve had all three of those types of pets at some point in my life, but never all at the same time. It was fun to combine their physical characteristics and personalities into one pet.

Artist Nyssa Juneau captured what a tibbar looks like wonderfully in this drawing…

In my story, Gib is a Galactic Defender sent on a mission with his squad to Hemera to guard the planet during their Alorama ceremony. One night on shift, he comes across a little creature who introduces him to an intriguing local woman.

Here’s a snippet from GIB AND THE TIBBAR (a Galactic Defenders story) when Gib first meets Elynyn then Vilarra…

A small, furry white creature scampered between the Defenders and the fire. Gib yanked his feet back and gasped. He tried to follow the path the animal took, and when it disappeared into the grassy field, he relaxed a little. Not that he was afraid, only startled by the sudden appearance of the critter.

But his watch partner reacted differently. The cowardly Defender stood on his bench, reaching for a low branch on the ropral tree as if to lift himself farther off the ground. “What in Gaspra was that? No one told me about any deadly creatures on this planet.”

Gib laughed and slapped his hand on his lap. “I wouldn’t call the fluffy little thing that raced by us a deadly creature.”

“Okay, Hemera is infested with vermin, then.” Zair examined the area around him before he dared put a foot on the ground.

A high-pitched squeak sounded, and Gib’s surveillance partner returned to reaching for the branches. The little creature stood on its hind legs below Zair’s bench, peeping as if telling him off.

Gib couldn’t hold in his laughter. Not just at the other Defender’s reaction, but also the thoughts running through Zair’s mind, thoughts he’d failed to block in his fear.

“It’s not going to eat you.” Gib shook his head, wondering how his squad mate could see the creature as dangerous. “Would you please get down from there? Defenders are supposed to be brave and fierce. Right now, you’re neither.”

“Go to Gaspra, Mingot. And stay out of my head.” He yanked his plazer from his hip holster and aimed it at the critter. “If I don’t destroy it, it will bring death to everyone on this planet.”

Stepping into the line of fire, Gib yanked the weapon from his squad mate, thankful the safety remained on. “You’re being ridiculous. Besides, if you fire your weapon, you’ll cause a panic. The Hemera will think Erebus have arrived.”

The frightened Defender shook a foot at the creature. “Fine, then. Kick it into the fire. Or you could stomp on it.”

“Don’t you dare!” A Hemera woman burst from the bushes, storming toward Zair like a mother rehn protecting her young. She shoved him off his bench and shouldered past Gib before scooping the noisy creature into her hand. “This is my tibbar, not some kind of vermin.”

“Tibbar? Try nasty rodent that tried to eat me.” Zair smoothed out his uniform but kept his distance from the creature now perched on the woman’s shoulder.

“You’re both on nehbred.” She kicked dirt at them, her pink lips pursed and her dark eyes set in a deadly stare. “You don’t know what you’re talking about when it comes to my pet or my planet.”

ABOUT GIB AND THE TIBBAR

A Novella in the Galactic Defenders Series

A dedicated Defender to the core, Gib is willing to go to any planet the Galactic Alliance sends him. That is, until he’s sent with his squad to Hemera for their Alorama ceremony, far from any threat of Erebus invasion and with no chance for promotion.

Vilarra has lived on Hemera all her life, working hard in the kitchens of the royal palace until she achieved lead hand. But learning of the universe beyond her world reveals her insignificance and shreds her sense of accomplishment and purpose.

With the help of a furry, little tibbar, Gib is determined to win the affection of Vilarra, prove to her how significant she is to him and the people who depend on her. But will his personal mission be cut short before he has the chance to win her heart?

#8Sunday: Will RJ get his kiss? Excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #romance #scifirom

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. This is a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse. It releases Monday! 🙂

Set-up: Last week RJ offered Missy $50 for a kiss on the lips. There’s a bit of playful banter between them, but here’s Missy’s reaction. (RJ speaks first.)


“One kiss, and you never know, you just might like it.”

“Really?” She placed a hand on his knee then waltzed in front of him with a confidence he’d never seen from her before. “You’re that confident of the power of those full brown lips, are you?”

Before he had the chance to think of a response, she snatched the bill from his hand, leaned between his spread legs, and kissed him. He barely had a chance to close his mouth when it was all over.

“Thank you so much for your support.” Missy curtsied then stuck the money into the collection bottle.

RJ gripped the bottom of the bench, trying to process the fact the kiss had already happened. He’d hoped for so much more.


IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.
