In The Devil's Nebula



 If you've never read any of Anna Hackett's stories, give them a go. She's a fantastic writer who throws her characters into loads of angst and action. (I LOVED Time Thief). Can't wait to get my hands on her latest work =)


Action, Adventure and Romance IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA
First there was AT STAR’S END and the treasure hunt to find the last remaining fragment of the Mona Lisa. Now travel to the heart of the Devil’s Nebula on the hunt for the gun used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.

He lost it all.
His career, his woman, his sanity.
Two years ago, on a deadly mission to the lawless Devil’s Nebula, Commander Zayn Phoenix’s life imploded. Now the former Strike Wing pilot fills his days with dangerous adventures alongside his treasure hunter brothers.
But his nights are another story: haunted by nightmares of one unforgivable act.
Until an assassin lures him into a hunt. A hunt for her freedom from the Assassin’s Guild. A hunt for a derringer used in an ancient and infamous assassination—of old Earth president, Abraham Lincoln.
Zayn is compelled to join the perilous adventure with Ria Dante that will take them straight into the heart of the Devil’s Nebula, but not for money, fame or treasure.
He joins because Ria has the face of the woman he left for dead in the Nebula years before.

SCRATCH

http://www.amazon.com/Scratch-Mel-Teshco-ebook/dp/B00L91AYVO/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403674978&sr=1-1&keywords=scratch%2C+mel+teshco

Had a lovely 4 star review, thanks to Stormy Vixen at Jeep Diva Reviews. Here's what she had to say:

Proving the existence of shape-shifters could prove to be a deadly proposition for Alexia in this riveting shape-shifter novella.  Her determination to honor her father’s memory leads her Blake and puts them both in sight of those who want to exterminate all shifters. As danger closes in, Alexia’s going to have to choose what’s more important, honoring the father she adored and or protecting the man she loves.
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the reader on their toes with lots of action, suspense, drama and passion.  The author paints vivid scenes with well written details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated action and suspense draw the reader deeper into this short romance filled with strong compelling characters that are easily related to.
The attraction between Alexia and Blake blazes red hot from first meeting and the frequent sex scenes are an inferno of fiery passion. The reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement and drama as the couple run for their lives and the author surprises the reader with a few twists to keep them guessing.
While short and sweet, this action filled novella is enjoyable and entertaining and while I couldn’t determine if there is to be another story involving these shifters, I really hope to read Shad’s story one day soon.

The SFR Brigade Presents...


I'd love to share a snippet from my upcoming sci-fi release (which is a 2 book each continuity with Denise Rossetti and Shona Husk). You can pre-purchase your copy on Amazon but don't forget to buy all three books, which are coming out the same day, August 28th, and followed  by our next three books in the series in early November.

Here's my snippet:


An alarm sounded as a section of the barrier thudded to the floor. She turned to watch, almost numbly, as a prisoner king-hit a soldier, knocking him out cold. Another soldier’s whip snaked out, unleashing high-voltage currents onto the prisoner, cutting him off mid-scream, his throat convulsing and blood gushing from his nostrils. His body jerked spasmodically before he, too, fell to the floor.

Then a hand encircled her forearm, steering her away from the carnage. “You need to leave,” Tristan whispered urgently.

Rita choked back hysterical laughter. How perverse that a prisoner—and one in whites—turned out to be a better guardian than the lieutenant. She managed a nod, mouth drying when she said, “We’d best get you out of here too, before they lock-down the magna-cuffs.”

Any one of the guards could activate the cuffs. Prisoners within a ten-foot radius would then be magnetically pinned to the floor or walls. The ‘all whites’ prisoners—those deemed murderers or mentally unstable—suffered a far worse fate, the lock-down setting off intermittent electric bolts that coursed through their body, incapacitating them in the worst way possible.

Blurb:

Is she willing to sacrifice everything to keep her secret and her lover safe?

It's the year 2202. Earth is grossly overpopulated and seriously polluted. Rita Songworth has spent half her twenty-two years trying to escape the dying planet. It's taken the last five of those years to realize making it in the hard-ass infantry is her only way out, via space transporter Earth Ship Siren.


But the journey to Unity, the new colony, isn't easy. Rita has to resist an attraction to hard, brutish prisoner, Tristan MacFallan, whose masterful hands create more than the beautiful art he's been assigned to make. His forbidden touch affects her profoundly and he sees things in her no man ever has before. But obeying Kane, her ex-lover and malicious lieutenant, who is appointed to keeping the prisoners under guard, comes at a high price. Is she willing to sacrifice everything to keep her secret and her lover safe?

Her Vengeful Scot

To avenge his sister’s honor, he must destroy the woman he wants most in the world…

Ordered to remain in Pictland, Cameron MacNeil fights the lust that consumes him whenever he encounters the aloof princess, Elise. Not only is she a cursed Pict, she belongs to the man he has vowed vengeance upon.

Despite her reputation, Elise has no interest in men until she meets Cameron. Lacking the famed Scots charm, his blunt ways enchant her and he ignites a passion she long thought dead. When she is freed from her difficult marriage, Elise places her trust in the tough Scot warrior who has stolen her heart.

Bound by blood oaths, the only way Cam can protect Elise from political schemes is to make her his bride. When Elise discovers the truth, she fears everything she knew about her husband was a lie. All she can do is trust her goddess was right and Cameron is her one true love.

A Romantica® historical erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

TAKING EVE

by Tina Donahue


Blurb:

A willing slave to possession, punishment, pleasure…

Dreams of a manor where submission and dominance once ruled draws Faith to hypnotherapist Colin Danes. Potently virile, he looks remarkably like her most cherished master from a past life. Desire smolders in his eyes, proving he’s never forgotten her.
Their carnal dance continues in the present and leads to their past when she was known as Eve. Through hypnotherapy, Colin brings her back to the Victorian era, a hidden estate where she eagerly submits to whatever he and her other noble masters crave. The exquisite discipline of the strap. Being bid on and mounted each night. Displayed and used for the enjoyment of all.
Most will take her. One will try to imprison her. Only he will be her true master in that life and this.


lust.


Excerpt

Eve was still bathing when he came for her. A man whose presence she’d frequently felt. A stranger she’d often seen riding past this cottage, his steed magnificent, a sorrel with a startling white mane and tail.
At those times, she’d noted the man’s well-defined features, noble bearing, the way his attention had focused on her alone. How his gaze had lingered and possessed, warming her skin, calling to everything female within her, demanding her submission. She’d given it, not moving, scarcely drawing a breath, her work forgotten.
Nothing except him had mattered.
Not once had he spoken or made a demand. During his increasingly prolonged observations of her, he’d been content—or obliged—to do no more than look.
Now, she saw the rope he held in one gloved hand.
Eve’s belly fluttered.
The ends of the rope jumped as he moved past the doorway, his height requiring him to stoop to avoid striking his head. He wore no top hat. Snow dusted his dark hair and shoulders. His ankle-length cloak was of fine black wool, lined with fur, his eveningwear consisting of a dark coat cinched at the waist and trousers of the same color. Fresh milk couldn’t compete with the flawless white of his vest and cravat, tied perfectly about his throat.
He closed the door, bolting it against interruption of what he was about to do.
The thought of it—and the metal’s sharp clack—caused Eve to start. Her pulse pounded fiercely. The candles Mrs. Trumble had lit stopped flickering at the wind’s departure. A few stray snowflakes floated in the air.
Eve felt none of the chill that he’d brought inside, only intense heat, spreading from her chest to her belly and cunt, then to her neck. Her throat tightened, not allowing her to make any sound as he stopped just short of the tub. Close enough for her to see his lushly lashed eyes, of the purest blue, more glorious than any sky.
He regarded her naked breasts to the exclusion of every other part of her and spoke for the first time. “Pull back your arms and arch your back. Present yourself to me.”
His voice was quiet yet commanding, smooth yet rough with arousal.
Unsteady with desire, Eve did as he wanted. She had no other choice. She wanted none. With her back arched and her arms drawn back, she lifted her breasts in offering.
He studied the ripe globes and her tightened nipples at a leisurely pace, moving from one side of the tub to the other to get his fill.
Eve remained a silent, obedient witness to his brazen perusal. Craving and enjoying it, desire pulsing through her.
A small smile touched his lips as her breasts quivered with her quick breaths. At length, his attention moved lower, to the part of her the bath continued to hide. Its violet-scented water reflected the candles’ flames, which tinted it gold and orange. Warm colors that hardly matched the heat blazing within Eve.
“You know what to expect?” he asked.
She nodded.
“All of it?”
Eve thought not, so she shook her head.
He seemed pleased by that and began, “From this moment forward, you’re never to cover yourself in any of your Masters’ presence. Your breasts, nipples, mouth, cunt, ass and anus are ours to use as we please. Whatever we require of you, no matter how demanding or indecent, you’re to obey with the greatest haste. You belong to us now. We have your agreement. Did you make it willingly?”
Eve had.
