The Trial of Tompa Lee

The Trial of Tompa Lee

Tompa Lee, a homeless street meat, has clawed her way up the bottom rungs of the glamorous Commerce Space Navy.  When she’s framed for an act of terrorism on an alien planet, however, the Navy abandons her by turning her over to alien justice.  By herself, Tompa cannot survive the 300 to 1 odds in her trial-by-combat — but can she dare to trust not only the policeman who arrested her, but a member of the alien race that wants to slaughter her?

The Midas Rush

The Midas Rush

Gold!  Mystery!  Humans from all five colony worlds flock to Jones when an ancient village of the planet’s intelligent natives is discovered—inexplicably transformed into gold.

Tresky Buffrum wants neither gold nor mysteries, just a taste of adventure before settling into the simple life of a shepherd.  What he gets instead is an inscrutable bride, determined to remain chaste, who lures him to danger and intrigue at the Midas Crater.  Can innocent young Tresky defeat the fanatics gathering like vultures to obliterate the crater—and the future of mankind on Jones?

  1. Book Lovers Buffet Authors are welcome to post a blurb and category link to the sale.

  2. Thanks, Ed! Here’s a little about my SF romance novella, written under my pseudonym for romance:

    Captive Lover by Amber Carew

    The intensely sexy stranger was everything she wanted in a man, and everything she hated. He was intelligent, passionate, and compelling. Authoritative, domineering, and stubborn. And he would stop at nothing to convince her to surrender to him, body and soul.

    Even though she sensed he would never hurt her, his ability to bend her to his will terrified her. She vowed never to surrender control. But ultimately, would she have a choice?

    1. “intelligent, passionate, and compelling”– so far so good. “Authoritative, domineering, and stubborn” — yeah, this sounds as though your heroine has her work cut out to tame this hero!

  3. Thanks for having us!

    I’m offering LEASHED, the first book in my Going to the Dogs series for .99

    And they call it puppy love!

    When Jack falls head-over-paws for cute and cuddly Jill next door — that creamy coat, those soft brown eyes, and, yowza, those long legs, he simply cannot help himself. Bing, bang, boom, a few weeks later, Jack has some ‘splaining to do when that cute female is with puppies. Jack’s going to be a father, trouble is his lady love’s owner and his owner need a little shove into love. Being a large and in-charge Great Dane, that’s no problem for Jack. With a little cooperation and a little matchmaking, some nudging, whining and puppy dog eyes, hopefully, everyone will live happily ever after together.

    1. This sounds like exactly the sort of story my wife would love, Zoe.

      For a picture of my own little pooch look here You’ll be glad to know that Laddie is feeling fine now.

  4. Ed,

    Thanks for letting us highlight our book buffet books on your blog! I have two in the mix:

While she’s happy her sister has found love again, Maddy wonders if she’ll ever find love herself. Her college roomie keeps pressuring her to go out with her older brother, who happens to be vacationing at the same lake. Maddy doesn’t want to go on another blind date, but after blowing it with the gorgeous man she met on the beach she doesn’t have anything to lose. Or does she?
