Here's another cool story from one of my lovely and talented author friends, S.E Gilchrist! If you're into sci-fi romance, I'm sure you'll love this story.
third full-length novel in SE Gilchrist’s bestselling erotic SF series
mixes one sexy spy, a soldier looking for salvation and an unlikely
mission to save the world.
contortionist bubble dancer and part-time spy, has one goal – a safe
haven and independent life far from the war. But her plans go awry and
her future becomes dangerously uncertain when she is falsely accused of
the murders of her friend and a Darkon traitor. Now her new list of
goals includes payback.
her way is Ulrac, a banished Darkon patroller responsible for
incarcerating females for barbaric ‘treatments’ and ‘research’ on the
planet Isla. He's determined to use the capture of the spy and her intel
to win the approval of his father – a hard-line Traditionalist with his
own agenda – and help him overthrow the current ruler of Darkos.
the war of the Seven Galaxies has reached a critical stage, and
personal plans and goals suddenly hold very little meaning. The enemy is
poised to unleash a terrible weapon and no one stands between him and
total domination of all the universes.
So the next three books of the ES Siren series are out now for pre-order! Check out Mine to Serve on Amazon. We're hoping to see the covers VERY soon! I'll post the moment I know =)) So after Yours to Uncover, Yours to Command and Yours to Desire, the next books are: Mine to Hold, Mine to Keep and Mine to Serve. Here's the blurb for Mine to Serve - book six of the ES Siren series:
A man with a secret past and a woman with an uncertain future. When
Lucinda Farrell is found guilty of a crime she didn't commit, she's
resigned to her fate. It's either stay on a dying Earth or travel
through the galaxy to the new world of Solitaire to complete her
three-year sentence. Many claim the space bucket, Earth Ship Siren,
won't make the long twelve-month journey and are almost proven right
when a micro-meteor shower hits and cripples one of the three ships
heading to Solitaire. As pilot of the ES Siren, Jarred
Cooper has never been short of female admirers. But he's got a secret he
holds close to his chest—literally. Letting go of his past has never
been so difficult when he's yet to find a woman who makes his breath
catch and his heart beat fast. He knows love at first sight doesn't
exist. Then he glimpses the beautiful prisoner, Lucinda. But
when overcrowding and rationing of food become serious issues, getting
her to understand they can make things work, despite his past and their
huge social divide, just might be the biggest hurdle of them all.
Isn't this a gorgeous cover!! This is the wonderful, Maggie Mundy's latest release, available from Amazon and all great e-tailers. Check out the blurb and excerpt below =)
BLURB: Two things have helped Nicole cope since the murder of her husband.
One is running her detective agency, and the other is her guardian angel Mira.
When Mira is killed by a demon, Nicole accepts the help of a Ridge, a long
haired, cigar smoking diamond in the rough with wings. Things go from bad to
worse when a replacement guardian cannot be found. She has to trust Ridge,
which is tricky when she realizes there are no demons or angels, just parasitic
aliens that humans have built the myths of these celestial beings around. Ridge
isn’t an angel or a devil, but an alien half breed known as a Midworlder. He is
also way too sexy for his own good, or is it her own good.
“Please don’t drop me, please don’t drop
me,” Nicole repeated as she closed her eyes. She didn’t like flying in planes,
let alone being dragged through the night sky by an oversexed scruffy angel who
was too hot for his own good. Or was it her own good.
“I won’t let you fall. Look around
before we go over. I reckon you’ve guessed the events of tonight aren’t the way
we normally do things. Humans aren’t meant to be aware of our flying through
the night sky which means I can’t let you remember any of this.”
She took a deep breath and opened her
eyes. His face was close to hers as he gripped her tight around her waist. It
was too dark to read what he might be thinking from his expression. His lips
were so close and her own were parting at the thought he might kiss her. She
trembled, but not from fear anymore and hoped he couldn’t read her mind. They
were being hunted and she wanted a kiss, no she longed for it. He had to be putting
the thoughts in her head.
She needed to get her mind off him so
she gazed down at San Francisco. Her adopted city stretched out below with
steep streets reaching down to the harbor, while the lights on the Golden Gate
Bridge shone in the distance, reflecting on the water below. She smiled as a
tear flowed down her cheek. She had never seen it this way before. For a moment
she forgot others were after them or after her in particular. She peeked over
Ridge’s shoulder and glanced back over his wings as they glided through the
sky. Three dark, winged shapes were following and could be seen against the
light of the full moon. Maybe the full moon could explain why strange things
were happening, because this was like staring at a scene from a horror movie,
except it was real.
The shapes of their pursuer’s bodies
blurred. She turned back to the city but the lights of San Francisco were
disappearing. In the moonlight she focused on the face next to her. Ridge
smiled and touched her cheek with his.
“It’s okay. I’m gonna get you a new
guardian and all of this will go away. I won’t let anyone hurt you.”
She didn’t want a new guardian, she
wanted Mira back. It went dark and reminded her of when she went adventure-caving
in Australia. The absolute darkness of underground where not even a trickle of
light breaks through, no matter how hard you look. She couldn’t see Ridge
anymore, but the closeness of him and the darkness amplified the sound of his
wings. For a moment they were all that existed in the universe. His lips
touched hers and her mouth opened to him only to have him pull away. Did he
mean to do that?
“I suggest you close your eyes and give
your mind over to me,” he whispered.
Nicole shook her head and tried to get
herself back to reality, whatever that was. “I’m not going anywhere with my
eyes shut after tonight, and from what I’m picking up at times your mind seems
a bit murky to let you in again.”
“Suit yourself darling, but don’t blame
me if you pass out.”
Pain sliced through her temple. She
squeezed her eyes shut and instinctively hugged Ridge tighter. His thoughts
were in her head again telling her to relax, but this time it wasn’t working. She
tried to hold down the rising alarm of what would happen next. Somehow she had
an inkling it wasn’t going to be good.
Mundy lives in Adelaide, Australia and is a member of Romance Writers of
Australia, and the local chapter SARA (South Australian Romance Authors). She
recently completed a Bachelor of Arts in Drama and English at Flinders University.
She had a short story published in the Romance Writers of Australia Topaz
Anthology Little Gems in 2010 called Sea and Vines. She has three books out
with Rogue Phoenix Press. Two erotic novellas called Blood Scent and Blood Oath
and a paranormal romance called World Change. She also has a supernatural
thriller out with Soul Mate Publishing called Hidden Mortality and paranormal
romance called Unknown Protector.
She has also performed for many years in
corporate entertainment for which she wrote her own sketches, which probably
explains why her head is so full of characters. She loves writing romance but
thinks falling in love can be scary, especially in her stories where creatures
of the night really exist.

My Alien Hunger series have far and away been my best sellers. Lately though Galactic Burn, Galactic Inferno and Galactic Flame have died off in sales, due to my not releasing another book. Why haven't I? I've actually written almost half of book 4, Galactic Blaze, but I've decided not to do any more work on it until 'issues' at EC are sorted out or I get my rights back. The same goes with book 4 in my gargoyle stories - Winged & Dangerous. In the meantime I'm writing my butt off getting some more stories out there. Books 4,5 and 6 of the sci-fi continuity I'm doing with Shona Husk and Denise Rossetti are coming out late November and it looks like we'll be doing another book each in that world, which is really exciting. Wait until you meet my hero and his two lovers hehe!!
Last but definitely not least, I'm working on "Hostage to the Sheikh" which is book 1 of a three book bundle called "Taken by the Sheikh" (sounds yummy doesn't it!?) with Cathleen Ross and Christina Phillips. The cover is - wow!! Just wait until you see it! And the stories are brilliant and interlinked with three sheikh brothers. Release date isn't too far off but will let you all know when I know! =)
Yours to Uncover is available at Amazon and now also Barnes & Noble. Or go to the Momentum page to purchase and for links to other great e-tailer sites. This is book 1 of a six book series continuity with Shona Husk and Denise Rossetti. We've had some brilliant reviews for this sci-fi erotic romance, where each of us pens characters set aboard the ES Siren heading to a new world. Books 4,5 and 6 will be released in November.
And don't forget to visit the ES Siren Blog where our characters have each kept a journal of their pre-flight to Solitaire.
So excited to be part of the Harlequin Escape, Secret Confessions continuity, with ten other fantastic authors including: Rhian Cahill, Cate Ellink, Cathleen Ross, Tamsin Baker, Lexxie Couper, Shona Husk, Keziah Hill, Viveka Portman, Christina Phillips and Tracey O'Hara!
I'm book 10 in the continuity, which focuses of my young housewife, Camilla.
