I, Effing Feline, have been ripped off. Taken advantage of! Lied to!
This is 2019 — a brand new year, or so they say. Yet my broken dew claw is still broken, just like last year. What the hissy growl is up with that?!? I’m supposed to be brand new and as fit as a kitten!!!
New year, new book . . . but I tell you, starting a new book is nowhere near as important as get a new dew claw! Anyway (grumble, hiss) here’s the opening of Constellation XXI, book three in Ed’s Repelling the Invasion series. As though I care — and I’m sure you feel the same way!
She didn’t do it.
Couldn’t have. There was simply no way.
The whole thing was impossible.
Nonetheless, guilt slammed Captain Sienna Dukelsky as hard as ramming her ship nose-first into an asteroid—because at the instant the ship died, she was indulging in erotic daydreams of the glorious year she’d spent with Crispin at the Keening AstroSpace Academy.
Through him, she’d learned that happiness could transcend all boundaries. Learned her life up to them had been sepia compared to the astonishing crimsons, shimmering golds, psychedelic greens, and black velvet nights that love had revealed. He was her first lover, so she’d naively assumed passion might one day deliver another such life-changing fulfillment. But there were no second chances for undeserving women, and after Crispin, sex wasn’t even sepia, but monochrome.
Now he was here, on this very ship, trailing rainbow memories that seduced her senses and shrouded her brain as powerfully as the shielding on the ship’s reactors.
Effing Feline here again. Here’s the proof of what I said about my dew claw:
Pity me. Oh, woe is me. Lousy new year. Absolutely lousy — and my head still throbs from New Year’s Eve.
For just a few days, Escapee, book 2 in Ed’s Repelling the Invasion series is priced at 99c as part of Patty Jansen’s monthly group promotion. Don’t worry about Escapee being book 2 — it stands alone, and is just as good an entry into the series as book 1 is.
Escapee is listed under Science Fiction Romance, right next to our own Aurora Springer’s The Lady is Blue. Weekend Warrior Amy Braun’s Crimson Sky is in there too, so really, you need to check out this promotion. Think how guilty, culpable, remorseful, and blameworthy (yes, I used Word’s thesaurus) you’ll feel if you don’t. Not that I’m trying to lay a guilt trip on you or anything. 😉
