Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Here’s another snippet from JAGER, the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders.
Set-up: Last week Katrina was tortured in the dark, and Jager felt horrible for allowing it to happen. He ended up trying to help her, but got hurt in the process. Stuck in the cell together, they’ve grown closer, come to an understanding at least. And they’re talking… (edited to fit)
“Hopefully, your boyfriend and his squad can come to our rescue.”
She shoved his shoulder. “What boyfriend?”
Jager rolled his eyes. She couldn’t deny what everyone knew. “Jace. You two spend every spare moment together, and we all know what you’re doing when you sneak off to one of your rooms.
As she laughed, her hands bounced up and down on her tight stomach. “Jace; is that really what everyone thinks? Cosmos, no, we’re nothing more than friends.”
JAGER: Galactic Defenders Book Two
Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.
Katrina is a Defender, not a Princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.
But when a new enemy threatens both their lives, they must work together to survive.
