Pre-Order for September 20th or Kindle Unlimited on Release
Max Steele, a former cyborg marine ranger, returned to Earth with his team to restore law and order to the North American West. He is on his way to Northern California to take over securing order in the San Francisco megalopolis. Although he preferred his rural territory, he knew he wasn’t needed.
Max considered himself socially repressed and was not looking forward to dealing with people in the urban ruins. He even worried he would put off his genetic mate if he ever found her.
Falyn Wayne is running for her life from four men on her horse Argus. Max sees them from the air and decides to intervene, putting himself between the men and the fleeing woman. Sending them on their way, he finds Falyn standing over her downed horse with a pistol sobbing because it has broken its leg, and she needs to end his suffering. Max stops her, but as he approaches, Falyn shoots him…
Arantxa thought her best friend was crazy to even think
about applying to an alien matchmaking agency to find a husband. Samantha
thinks it’s a great opportunity for them to escape their mundane lives and get
husbands. She will even pay Arantxa fee. She finally gets Arantxa to agree with
plans for them to only look for mates on the same planet.
When Samantha finds her mate first, Arantxa convinces her
she should go ahead and meet him. With Samantha gone, Arantxa decides to take a
chance on a man named Biurk from
the same planet. Things start to go haywire from there.
Instead of letting her use the agency transport, he
convinces her to let him send a ship for her. Arantxa has her suspicions that
things aren’t quite right but she tamps down her doubts.
The ship is seized by pirates who kidnap her to sell as a
sex slave. But before they arrange to sell her they take her back to their
planet and amuse themselves by torturing her and the ship’s crew.
So Biurk hires a mercenary to rescue. Arantxa. She feels an
unexpected attraction to Korben who is sent to rescue her. A wrong turn and a
missing communicator leave them lost in the forest alone together.
Feeling dutybound to give Biurk a chance to court her,
Arantxa fights the growing attraction to Korben. Only vaguely humanoid compared
to Biurk, Arantxa doesn’t understand this illogical fascination with this alien
who no one would mistake for human.
Nothing is quite as it seems nor do all the pieces fall together until almost the very end.
Note: Arantxa is expected to release in November, and I can tell you it’s a great story.
