Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Okay, this really is the last snippet from JAGER, the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders. I hope you have enjoyed them all. There are more Galactic Defenders coming, including GIB AND THE TIBBAR, which will be part of the upcoming Pets in Space 2 anthology: Embrace the Romance. Also, Jace will get his own story soon. And I have plans for Scrym, Pollux, Naf, Oflaria, and many more.

Set-up: Last week Jager learned that Jace and Katrina weren’t romantically involved. Well, that left Katrina available, and while locked up and naked, two consenting adults who already shared an attraction to each other became physically intimate. Well, their captor arrived to ruin the afterglow, removing Jager from the cell and shoving in a new cell mate for Katrina. I’m introducing this character, because she is important in JACE. (edited to fit)


Katrina eyed the sleeping green heap on the floor. As much as she wanted to kick the girl, smash her head in until she was dead, she couldn’t. Faith hadn’t asked to be created, hadn’t chosen to be a cross between the most vile creature in the universe and Katrina’s own ancestors. No, Katrina’s anger was with the woman who had created the girl, produced other Erebus-like creatures, then let them loose on the world.

Could the girl be related, though? If the crazy woman had fused Katrina’s DNA with that of an Erebus, Faith was some type of clone. Her sister from the crazy bitch.

How could she look so normal, yet like the enemy at the same time? The girl didn’t have completely red eyes ready to burn a hole through her, or any poison dripping from her mouth, had no body hair, only the fuzzy leaves on the top of her head. She could easily pass as just another race if brought to the attention of the Alliance, but not on Earth; she didn’t belong on this planet.


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.

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.”

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 Jager reprimanded Katrina for going off on her own. He’s still mad at her, and they’re sitting in opposite corners of their cage. Then this happens… (edited to fit)


Her nostrils flared and a tear slid down her cheek.

Then the lights went out—total darkness—he couldn’t see a thing.

Maybe it was better that way; she couldn’t make him feel guilty with her tears or turn her glare on him. Some time in the dark would do them both good, give her a moment to contemplate his words as he had hers. When they got out, somehow, they’d finally work as a team.

A scream pierced his eardrums. “Katrina?” Cosmos, so much for working as a team. He should have been by her side instead of at the opposite end of their cell; whatever happened to her, it was his fault. He crawled forward, dreading what he’d find when he reached her.

New lips at the kissing booth. #MWTease from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #scifi #romance #sfr

Happy Wednesday! Thank you for visiting me for another Mid Week Tease! This week, I’m sharing another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Romance that takes place during a zombie apocalypse. It released earlier in 2017. Enjoy!

Setup: Last week we met RJ at the local fun fair. We know he’s looking for someone. Now, let’s switch over to Missy, the heroine of the story…

“Melissa Ruth Smith, I insist you come back here at once.”

Missy rolled her eyes as she stormed away from her father. The man had helped her celebrate her twenty-first birthday yesterday—with a simple birthday cake and a glass of wine—yet still treated her like a child. “It’s to help Billy and the band, remember?” she shouted over her shoulder. “That’s why I came home.” Though she wished she hadn’t. Not with only two weeks off between her summer classes and fall term.

“But, the kissing booth?” Her father rushed to keep up with her. “Jesus wouldn’t approve.”

The religion card. What a surprise. “Jesus wouldn’t approve of half the shit that goes on in this town, especially how you treated that family next door.” She spun around and faced her father with her hands on her hips. “And you certainly haven’t been struck down yet.”

“Missy, please don’t talk to your father like that.” Her mother hooked an arm through hers and paraded her closer to the booth she was scheduled to volunteer at. “It’s just, aren’t you concerned about the germs? The diseases you could catch?”

“C’mon, Mom. I’m just kissing them on the cheek.” She glanced over at Sidney who tapped her watch before kissing Old Man Samson on the small patch of cheek not covered by his fluffy white beard. “Besides, you asked me to come home and help with this fundraiser.”

“I know, but there are other things you could—”

“I’ve gotta go, Mom. Sidney’s waiting for me to take over.” Jogging over to the booth, Missy took her place beside the bench.

Sidney grabbed her purse and left without a word, no different than when they’d attended high school together. Hence, why Missy had fled West Vitula right after graduating high school. No one who stuck around seemed to change.

The line thinned out with the departure of her former classmate, but there were still plenty of cheeks to kiss and a plethora of greenbacks deposited into the jar, money that would help her brother and the rest of the band get to Nationals. And maybe they would see there was life beyond this backward town.

After numerous kisses, her lips burned. She reached into her pocket for her lip balm and took a break to apply it and let it soak in. When she glanced back at the line, everyone had disappeared. All the males except the one her parents would blow a gasket if she kissed. Which made her want to lay her lips on him even 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.
