Repelling the Invasion

A science fiction romance by Edward Hoornaert

Not one paragraph is wasted in this Sci-fi thriller full of action and sexual magnetism. — InDt’ale Magazine


A Disillusioned Soldier

Hector Dukelsky is a career soldier and the son of generals … but he yearns to fight a righteous war, not quell riots by downtrodden peasants or defend corporate interests. He loses all hope of fulfilling his dream when his entire command is slaughtered while he’s away, leaving him stranded alone in smoldering rubble on Banff, an isolated, uninhabitable mining moon, where he has no possibility of even reaching the enemy.

 A Pilot with a Chip on Her Shoulder

Catt Sayer, an escapee from a harsh peasant life, ekes out a living by flying supplies on a decrepit airship … but when invaders destroy all army bases, her hard-won career is destroyed. Searching for survivors, she finds Hector and flies him to safety—but safety is not what he wants. Captain A-Hole, as she calls him, wants her to risk her ship and her life on an impossible trip to the other side of the moon to attack the enemy headquarters.Travel Escapee

A Dying Moon

Catt knows Banff. She knows the moon will kill them long before they reach the enemy. She agrees to Hector’s scheme, certain he’ll give up after experiencing the terror of a volcanic eruption. But he refuses to quit, and slowly his noble, self-sacrificing dream—and his love—fills her empty life. Now she risks love, as well as life, while trying to survive Banff’s unconquerable environment … and the only reward for success is a battle against ten thousand enemy warriors.

The chemistry is magnetic. Do yourself a favour? Read it! — Amazon reader
