With Alien Contact for Runaway Moms now live, I’m switching to my next project. I recently got the rights back to The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station. It’s perhaps my favorite book, and the heroine is definitely my favorite, so I revisited the book, expanding on three scenes that had more emotion in them. The second edition up for pre-order.
Among the changes I made are a new cover and a new blurb. Since you can’t get more hook-like than a blurb, I’m posting it for you today.
Three Strangers Facing an Enemy Invasion
The space pirates think they’ve conquered Farflung Space Station — but they didn’t count on Duke. The station’s Head of Security wants to prove to his army-officer parents he’s outgrown his youthful rebelliousness. Defeating a small army of pirates single-handedly is the perfect opportunity.
And they didn’t count on Lockey. This kick-ass princess knows every weapon and martial arts system in the galaxy. She fell in love with Duke at first sight, so winning his heart — and destroying the pirates are her greatest desires.
And most importantly, the pirates didn’t count on Sandrina. After loving Duke from afar, she now yearns to fight with—and for — him. The attractive waif has discovered so many of Farflung’s secrets that she’s the most powerful person on the station, though nobody knows it yet.
They’re about to find out.
As I imagine you can tell, this is science fiction adventure laced liberally with romance. I usually aim for a 50/50 split, but this book is probably more like 60/40. The question I pose in the title is legitimate, in that after I’d written most of it, I wasn’t sure who was going to get the girl — it could’ve been any combination of the three main characters!
