#8Sunday: Katrina is missing in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #scifi #romance

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders, releases March 27. The first book in the series is on sale. Details below.

Set-up: Last week Jager told Katrina that she wouldn’t be going on the squad’s first mission. Of course, she objected. She even took her objection to the Galactic Alliance leader, but could not get out of her obligation. In this snippet, Jager is in a shuttle on his way to Earth with his squad (minus Katrina) when he receives an incoming video message. The first line is Jager’s.


“How can I help you?”

Bryce leaned forward and stared into the screen. “You can tell me where my daughter is, to start.”

Had he heard the man correctly? “What do you mean? I thought she was supposed to be on Hemera by now.”

“That’s what I thought, too.” The older Kalaren rubbed the back of his neck. “But when I went to meet her, she wasn’t there. In fact, she wasn’t on the shuttle at all.”


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.

#MidWeekTease: Defender vs. the Erebus in BRYCE #scifirom #sfr #GalacticDefenders #MWTease

Get teased, titillated, and tantalized with this week's Mid Week Tease

Happy Wednesday! Thank you for visiting me for Mid Week Tease! In less than a week, the second Galactic Defenders story releases. It’s Jager’s story. Today, I’m sharing an excerpt from BRYCE, the first book in the series, when you first meet Jager.
**BRYCE is on sale for 99¢ until April 19, 2017**

Setup: Bryce has left Lalia and Katrina behind on the Galactic Alliance carrier, and is with his squad on Hoggins to stop the Erebus from eliminating the native population.

Bryce led his squad to the right, plazer at the ready. Erebus tentacles littered the ground. Creatures caught in the explosion. The stench of Erebus waste and the charring of the building burnt his nostrils. Flicking on his helmet, he tried to focus through the tears in the corners of his eyes. He preferred to keep his senses unimpeded by the helmet, but the shield sensors would help him see in the thick smoke. Readings failed to locate any life needing rescue.

Static crackled in his ear from the translator.

“Twenist, is that you?” A member of Delta squad.

More static, followed by a scream. Erebus calls pierced the night.

Cosmos! “Echo squad, move to the left side. Prepare to engage enemy.” His heart raced as he rushed ahead to lead his team into battle.

The smoke thinned on the left side. An Erebus lunged at him. Weapon at the ready, he shot the creature, sending it flying back. Two more charged from the right. Rays of light from plazer fire behind him took them out before he had the chance to shoot.

Yet, the Erebus cries continued. In a line, his squad searched for members of Delta while defending each other. They found nothing but bodies, or what remained of them. Black sludge covered the uniforms and faces of the fallen Defenders, preventing identification. Skin bubbled as it disintegrated into nothing but goop.

Bryce released a heavy breath. An entire squad taken out by adolescent versions of their enemy. While help rested steps away.

Movement in the distance caught his attention. He squinted through his visor while his brain processed the image. A Defender—likely one of Delta, since all of Echo stood around him—darted away from the burning building. Toward a moving line of blackness.

Oh Gaspra! What was the fool thinking? “Echo, out in the distance.” He pointed. “There’s a Defender out there who’s about to take on a cluster of Erebus. Let’s go help, make sure he comes back alive.”

His team dashed to protect one of their own before he’d finished the order. The lone Defender dropped to one knee and fired his weapon, taking out a large number of Erebus. But more kept coming, forming a circle around him.

Bryce fired along with his company. The circle broke as a multitude of Erebus fell. But an agonizing scream from among the creatures postponed any victory.

Two Erebus stood on either side of the Defender, their tentacles wrapped around his arms and legs, like they wanted to pull him apart. Playing. No, tormenting him.

Bryce fired, never letting up on the trigger. He’d seen the creatures kill before but not torture their prey. Absolutely unheard of.

The Erebus dropped the Defender before they slumped to the ground. Dead. But, he hoped the man in the blood-stained blue fatigues between them had survived. The rest of Echo downed any remaining enemies, plowing a path for him to retrieve the fallen Defender.

The lapel on the shredded suit read Jager. No stars, only a private. Bryce touched the kid’s neck. A pulse, thank the universe. Blood covered the private’s face, a large gash from his chin, along his cheek, across his nose, and up the other side of his head. Surface wounds, not life threatening. They had to get him back to the barracks to check for and treat any internal injuries.


BRYCE: Galactic Defenders book one

A dedicated Defender…

Bryce fell in love once, but after Lalia was ripped away from him, he locked his heart from feeling anything for anyone else. Instead, he devotes his life to the Galactic Alliance, killing every bloodthirsty Erebus he comes across.

A shunned princess…

Lalia Comosova fell in love with the wrong man. When her parents learned of her transgressions, they sent her to Earth to hide her error in judgment from the rest of the kingdom.

A second chance?

When these lovers are reunited after many years apart, they have a chance to find happiness together. But fate steps in and threatens to rip them apart as it did years ago.

#8Sunday: Delta Squad’s first mission in JAGER #GalacticDefenders #scifirom #scifi #romance

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders, releases March 27.

Set-up: Last week Jager declared how much he didn’t like Katrina and her relationship with Jace. After that, Jager learned of his squad’s first mission, but one of their members will not be going with them… (edited to fit)


“Did you hear?” Katrina raced up and slapped him on the back. “We’ve got our first mission. We’re getting sent to Earth with Zulu and Echo squad.”

Jager clenched his fists. “Yes, we are.” He turned and glared at her. “But, you’re not; Your Royal Highness is required to attend a ball on Hemera.”

Her nostrils flared. “You lie; there is no way in Gaspra I’m going to miss out on our first mission.”


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.
