#8Sunday, #SaturdaySpankings: From Warrior…so crazy it might work

Welcome to the weekly installment of Saturday Spankings (Saturday) and Weekend Writing Warriors (Sunday), two weekend blog hops in which authors post eight-sentences excerpt.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00014]In this snippet from my newly released sci-fi romance Warrior, heroine Anika is wanted for murder by a despotic Qalin. There is a big bounty on her head. On the run and in male disguise, she is asked to assist with transporting a load of breeders to Qalin himself.

Marlix wanted her home; Ilian wanted to breed with her. Qalin wanted her…dead. Alone and on foot, she could not elude capture for much longer anyway. Marlix, one of the most strategic and astute males she’d ever met, often had counseled the best place to hide was under the searcher’s nose. Hadn’t he abducted Tara from the Terran Bazaar within Dak’s province and hidden at Dak’s Enclave? Qalin would never think to search for her within his own abode.

Hiding in an enemy’s stronghold seemed crazy.

So crazy it might work.

Warrior blurb 

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.

Though Warrior is third in the Breeder series, it is written to be read as a stand-alone.

  1. Oooh, what a good idea! I want more than 8 sentences though! Great snippet Cara 🙂

  2. Hiding right under your enemy’s nose is good – except if he finds you. Tantalising excerpt and I’m left wondering… whether he does. Where’s Marlix when you need him? ~grin~

  3. S.J. Maylee says:

    Anika is as smart as she is brave. Gosh, I was crazy nervous for her. Such a fabulous read.

  4. The whole time during this part I kept telling her no, not to do it. She was going to get caught! You kind of stressed me out!!!

  5. Very smart! But I have a feeling it’s not going to work the way she wants it to.

  6. PK Corey says:

    Anika is brilliant, especially for a ‘woman’ – ha! This woman has what it takes, beauty, courage, skill – she is a wonderful heroine and definitely someone I would want on my side in a fight. You did it again Cara, should you want to continue the series, I’ll be reading.

  7. Rayanna Jamison says:

    The cover for this is stunning!

  8. Leigh Smith says:

    It’s on my Kindle, I just have to find time to read. Congrats – gorgeous cover and I know the story is going to be great.

  9. Holla Dean says:

    Another one sitting on my Kindle waiting its turn. Every snippet makes me want to read it out of turn.

  10. Helen Karol says:

    I want to read this but need to finish my own writing that’s the trouble with these blogs so distracting. I loved the others in the series.

  11. Susan Clement says:

    Great book! Everyone should read it! Loved the story. My only problem is wanting more in this world!

  12. Those 8 sentences kill me! I wanted to hear more!

  13. I agree the cover of this book is amazing!!

  14. Tara Finnegan says:

    Hiding under the enemy’s nose takes great courage.
    Anika is equal to it I think.

    intriguing! love these lines!

    Great premise and I love the hook you used for this snippet. It should be another great story.

  19. Crazy good snippet, Cara!

  20. Renee Rose says:

    I love a smart, strong woman! I need to bump this up the tbr list and read it!

  21. Gem Sivad says:

    She is tough, smart, and beautiful. The perfect heroine. 🙂

  22. Gemma Parkes says:

    It just might work, goodness knows she’s desperate enough to try anything!

  23. Tina Christopher says:

    Wow, hide just under the beast’s nose? Scary place to be, but probably a good one. Great snippet.

  24. Eleri Stone says:

    That’s a pretty daring plan. I like her!

  25. Clever idea, that just might backfire! I love this series….terrific excerpt!

  26. Siobhan Muir says:

    Oh boy. It might work and it might not, but it’ll be a helluva adventure. Great snippet, Cara. 🙂

  27. Good strategy–hiding in plain sight. I wonder if it’ll work? It’ll be entertaining either way. 🙂

  28. Meka James says:

    hiding in plain sight. It’s either an ingenious move or will get her killed. Either way great tension and suspense.
