Welcome to Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors, two weekend blog hops in which authors present eight-sentences excerpts from their work. Mine is from Warrior, a science fiction romance, available on Amazon, BN and All Romance ebooks.
In this scene, Urazi and Anika are on the run from the bad guys. They’ve been hiking all day. Urazi speaks first:
“You have not complained nor hindered our travel. You are strong.” His words and nod of approval lit a glow within her until he spoiled it by adding, “For a female.”
“You are perceptive,” she snapped, an uncharacteristic temper rising. “For a male.”
Urazi frowned. “I have praised you, but I sense you are annoyed with me.”
Now for some important news! First, I have a NEW blurb for Warrior:
Between war and duty, they find love…
On a planet where women are chattel, Anika is to be delivered to become the mate of an Alpha Commander. Secretly in love with another, she is unable to accept the arrangement and flees. Bound by his duty, her lover Urazi intended to bring her back to fulfill her function. But war intervenes, and as their planet fights a desperate battle against a villainous despot, Anika and Urazi become united in their determination to save their people. But with their lives on the line, the love they share may become the biggest risk of all.
Warrior, the third book in the Breeder sci-fi romance series, can be read as a stand-alone.
Remember: Tuesday, November 4 is the deadline to post a review of Warrior on Amazon and enter the drawing for a $75 Amazon gift certificate. Details here.
