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.

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?
