New releases: Painted Promise and Touch of a Dragon

Painted Promise

Releases 18 August from Ellora’s Cave

You can read an excerpt here

Thirza Girard is a clone.  Her mirror image founded a thousand year dynasty that spans the quadrant.  The Girard family power is no accident.  The original Thirza did a deal with an alien, a Tashen-Dar, who could manipulate probability.  He changed reality so that Thirza and her descendants are favoured with opportunity, the chance, if they grab it, of achieving great wealth and power. However, it comes at a cost.
Paint – an organic technology – binds the alien, Zaid, in the bowels of the planet. Paint has captured him as an image for a thousand years.  The time of binding is almost at an end and Thirza Girard’s clone must pay the price for the power her family has enjoyed.  She must rebind him, capture him again in paint, or pay another, more carnal price.

I’ve been working on edits on this one this week.  Perfecting Naia should be out with Ellora’s Cave some time in October 🙂

Dasyra stepped down from the podium and crossed the short stretch of cobbles toward her. Sunlight lit him and his alien beauty caught her. She broke off her stare but his fingers lifted her chin. He dipped his head to hers and placed the briefest of kisses against her mouth. Her heart skipped.

“For the journey,” he murmured.

Six Sentence Sunday: Aramaea

Another snippet from Aramaea. I do like these two 😀

“You should share me.”  She turned to the wall that bisected the room, its narrow archway revealing the soft wash of light and their bags sat on wooden shelves.  “I’d enjoy watching Wolfenden fall to civil war.”

Jarek’s laughter followed her.  “I wouldn’t fight over you, Rheda, much less start a war.”

“That’s because you haven’t slept with me yet.”
