Hey there, lovelies!
Just wanted to let you all know that FORTUNE’S RISK will be out some time next week! I’m so excited, this novella was such fun to write. Hopefully seeing Finn and Viktis work together will be fun for you guys to read too!
I also want to remind you to sign up for my newsletter if you haven’t already, which will also be going out next week. There might even be some extra freebies included 🙂
Hope all my American friends have a Happy 4th of July!
I’m so pleased to be taking part in the Science Fiction Romance Brigade’s Midsummer Blog hop! The theme this year is Starry Nights, which I thought was particularly apt – considering my latest book is called The Star Thief!
To celebrate, I’m sharing the reunion kiss between Renna my heroine, and Captain Finn from my upcoming book – Athena’s Ashes – which will be out in August. They’ve been apart for a few weeks, and weren’t sure if they’d ever see each other again. Enjoy!
At the end I’m offering a prize – a digital copy of my scifi romance The Star Thief. All you need to do is leave a comment telling me what book you’re most looking forward to reading this summer. Please make sure you leave your email addy (in the format name at email dot com if you prefer) for your chance to win here.
For the Grand Prizes, just into the Rafflecopter at the end and enter your information – details on that at the end of the post. Good luck and enjoy!
Finn’s voice deepened and he leaned forward to rest his hands on the table across from her, his gaze at her eye level. “I’ve been thinking about what comes next since you left.” He looked like he wanted to devour her for lunch.
Renna swallowed. “You know what I mean.”
“I hate that you left as we were getting to know each other again. I missed you, Renna.” He smiled wolfishly. “Obviously you missed me too, if you took control of the Athena to get us back here.”
Heat blossomed in her face. “That had nothing to do with you,” she protested, getting to her feet. “I was unconscious. I didn’t even know what I was doing.”
Finn circled the table, and Renna backed away from him until she hit the wall. The expression on his face made heat pool between her legs and her mouth go dry. He stopped, just far enough away that he wasn’t touching her, but close enough she could feel the heat from his body.
His blue eyes bore into hers. “Look at that. The Star Thief’s afraid,” he said softly.
She shook her head, her tongue darting out to lick her suddenly dry lips. Finn’s gaze dropped to watch. Once upon a time, she would have used that to her advantage, to seduce him, and turn the tables. To take control of the situation. What the hell had happened to her?
She inhaled Finn’s scent – citrus and sandalwood. Damn him, he was right. She had missed him. But how did she even start to wrap her brain around that? She’d spent her whole life not letting herself care about other people, and the moment she opened herself up, something bad had happened. Talk about shitty timing. With everything going on now, she couldn’t afford to let him distract her.
She couldn’t think about the future. There was only the present.
But damn did she want him. Now. On the freaking mess hall table.
Finn’s gaze trapped hers as he caressed her jaw with one of his long fingers, let it drift lower down her neck to brush butterfly-light against her collarbone.
Renna’s skin tingled with fear and desire and lust until she could barely see straight.
And then he lowered his lips to hers. Just a soft brush of skin at first, but heat zapped through her at his touch and she sucked in a breath.
THE STAR THIEF – currently available at:

I am SO happy that so many of you liked it – thank you all for the kind words! I’m really excited about sharing this book with all of you. But, I know that it’s still a few more months before the planned release date at the end of August which can be frustrating when you’re waiting for a sequel. (If you still haven’t picked up a copy of The Star Thief, I’ll be putting it on sale for one day only – June 14th! So keep an eye out for the announcement!)
So for those Star Thief fans who need something to tide them over, I’m happy to announce that I’ll be releasing a novella in early July that bridges the gap between the two books (though it’s mostly standalone). And today I wanted to share the cover with you. I’m in love with it. My designer did another amazing job! We went back and forth for a while on the concept, but I think what we came up with works really well!
What do you guys think?
Captain Nick Finn has spent the last seven years trying to escape his drug-running past and become the perfect MYTH soldier. At the peak of his military career, he should be leading missions to capture the galaxy’s most wanted criminals. Instead, he’s stranded on a stolen MYTH ship with Viktis, a notorious pirate and an unlikely ally.
Being on the run from MYTH and trying to keep a low profile is nothing new for Viktis, so he’s happy to set course for bustling Forever Station – the perfect place to restock supplies and squeeze in a little entertainment on the side. But for Viktis, this visit is less about fun and games and more about revenge. Kitty Cordoza, a notorious mob boss and his sister’s killer, has gone all-in on a high-stakes poker game.
Only Finn can help him plant the evidence that the Station’s security needs to put her away for life. But the Queen of Crime has a few tricks up her sleeve, and as they’re about to find out, she’s not going to show her hand until it may be too late to fold.

This week was awesome. The amazing Hafsah at Icey Books unveiled the cover of my next Star Thief Novel – Athena’s Ashes. Stop by and check it out and you can enter to win an ARC! You can also add it to your Goodreads list here.
My amazing cover designer Christa and I finalized the final cover for Fortune’s Risk – the bridge novella between Star Thief and Athena’s Ashes. It follows Finn and Viktis while they’re on the run from MYTH. It’s got adventure, suspense, and even a little unexpected romance! I plan on sharing the cover soon. But in the mean time, you can add it to Goodreads.
(Also – if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, you may want to. There will be a special treat for my subscribers just before Fortune’s Risk comes out! And I promise I’ll never spam you.)
I’m also going to be taking part in the SFR Brigade’s Starry Night Blog hop in June. Stay tuned for more details, there are some amazing giveaway items!
Ok, I think that’s it. Now back to the revision cave! Hope you’re all doing well and for my US friends, have a Happy Memorial Day weekend!
