#Saturday Spankings, #8Sunday: From Warrior…Danger hurtles toward her

Warrior coming Oct. 21!

Warrior coming Oct. 21!

If it’s Saturday, it’s three more days until the release of Warrior, the third book of the Breeder sci-fi romance trilogy. If it’s Sunday, then TWO days! Warrior will release on Tuesday, Oct. 21. I’ll have two prize drawings: one for $25 in chocolate, one for a $75 Amazon gift card. Get the contest details here. But on with the show…

Welcome to Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors, two weekly blog hops in which authors present an eight-sentence excerpt from a work. Of course, I’m presenting a snippet from Warrior.

A quick update: Anika, our heroine, is on the run from arranged breeding.

A temblor shook the ground, and Anika whipped around to spy several large conveyances hurtling toward her. She stepped off the road to allow the caravan to pass, but the driver of the head vehicle emitted a piercing whistle and halted the convoy abreast of her. Two males—an alpha and a beta—drove each vehicle, except for the third, which was attended by a single beta. However, the cargo enclosed in portable cells drew her attention and evoked a frantic beat of fear. At least two dozen females, she estimated. About eight per conveyance.

Had her disguise failed? Had the convoy halted so she could be tossed into the cages with the others?

Wouldn’t you love to know what her “disguise” is?

Warrior blurb:

A female fighting for freedom.  A male armed with determination. Can they save their people?

As a despotic Qalin marches through Parseon intent on conquering every province, Commander Marlix pledges his sister to another Alpha to protect her. Desperate to decide her own fate, Anika flees and finds refuge with the guerilla resistance movement against Qalin. Marlix’s aide Urazi hunts her down to bring her home to fulfill her duty. But when love blossoms between them, and provinces fall to Qalin, Anika and Urazi realize home has ceased to exist, and they are all that stand between the people of Parseon and the end of the world.

Warrior, third in the Breeder series, can be read as a stand-alone.
