Dark Flight And The Cutest Critter In The Universe

By Cynthia Sax on June 22, 2017

The countdown to Dark Flight’s release is on!
Puffkers are mentioned in this story.
What are puffkers?

Well, they look very similar to this doggy.

Yes, basically, they’re puffballs with legs.
(grins)
They’re adorable and a certain giant green gatekeeper has a soft spot for them.

Here’s a snippet of a scene…

***

“She won’t be alone.” Balvan entered the chamber. “I’ll stay with your sister. She remembers me, won’t be scared to see me here. Especially as I’ll have this with me.”

He turned his wrists and opened his big fists. A white ball of fluff with dark eyes purred happily in one of his palms. One of its barely visible legs had gauze wrapped around it.

“Awww…” Rhea’s face softened. “Is that a puffker? They’re impossible to find on our home planet.” She made kissy noises at it. “Because you’re so cute and everyone wants you. Don’t they? Oh, yes, they do.”

The tiny creature had reduced Orol’s warrior female to goo.

“Her name is Sparkles.” Orol scooped his mate into his arms and stood, eager to put those lips of hers to better use.

Balvan scowled. “That’s not the creature’s name.”

His mission. His challenge. His forever.

Once he has Rhea in his talons, however, he realizes he never wants to let her go.

Orol is dominant, edged with darkness, and determined to find her sister. Rhea will do anything to prevent that, even if it means playing sensual games of submission with her powerful enemy, seducing him into forgetting everything except her.

First Scene From Dark Flight

By Cynthia Sax on June 19, 2017

Dark Flight is releasing on July 11th (it is available for pre-order today). I thought I’d share the first chapter over the next couple of weeks.

This is the first scene.

***

Chapter One

Rhea trusted no one.

She loved Paloma, would protect her sister with her life, but she couldn’t trust her. Her sister was young and gullible. She told everyone everything and believed only what she wanted to believe.

Even now, the sixteen-solar cycle old girl chattered beside her on the bridge of the merchant ship, sharing every thought passing through her brain. She didn’t care that the Humanoid Alliance was hunting them, confident her sister would safeguard her as she always had.

Rhea, having six more solar cycles, had been responsible for her sister all of Paloma’s lifespan. Their parents had been spies, busy with their larger cause, relaying information from their Humanoid Alliance neighbors to the Rebels they secretly supported. Their children, beings Rhea often suspected had been conceived as part of their parents’ cover, were an afterthought.

She had sheltered Paloma as best as she could, striving to give her the semi-normal upbringing she never had. Her sister had known nothing about their parents’ activities.
It was safer that way. Paloma couldn’t keep a secret to save her life.

When their parents were finally apprehended and executed, Paloma had refused to believe they were guilty of espionage, wouldn’t accept that they were dead.

Rhea, having seen their deaths with her own eyes, was alone in her grief and alone in her worry. Their mother, before being captured, had told Rhea to go to the Refuge, a settlement on Carinae E.

That destination was their sole hope. The Humanoid Alliance had tracked them to every stop they’d made en route. They’d been saved once during their journey by strangers. They’d been betrayed by numerous others. Luck, careful observation, and Rhea’s skills with a gun had kept them alive.

Rhea flicked her gaze between the main viewscreen of the merchant ship and the personal viewscreen embedded in the console. There were no signs of any other ships and that made her nervous.

The Humanoid Alliance wouldn’t give up so easily.

She didn’t know why warriors were pursuing them. It might have something to do with the blueprints her mother asked her to study two planet rotations before the Humanoid Alliance had knocked on their domicile’s door.

If that was the case, the Humanoid Alliance need not be concerned. She could remember very little of the vessel’s design.

“Is that our new home?” Paloma leaned forward, her beautiful face lighting up. “It’s…it’s…” Her enthusiasm immediately dimmed. “It’s very blah.”

Rhea was very blah. A slender, tanned, brown-eyed brunette, she was plain compared to her sister, a voluptuous, blue-eyed, pink-skinned blonde.

Males preferred Paloma. Rhea wasn’t emotional about that. It was simply a fact, like the universe being large and stars being bright. She was shocked when Marowit claimed Rhea was his preference.

But that had been yet another lie, a trick to gain her trust.

“Carinae E is a desert planet.” Rhea tapped on the personal viewscreen, refreshing the image. The monitoring system indicated no vessels. “This is the Refuge.” She marked the location on the main viewscreen with an X.

“Why are we deviating so far to the left?” Paloma wrinkled her nose.

“The wind currents around the settlement make it impossible to approach from above.” The wind currents weren’t natural, beings had told her. Kralj, the Ruler of the settlement, had special powers.

Was that why her mother had sent them here? Would those special powers protect them?

Rhea didn’t know.
The main viewscreen flashed red. An unfamiliar ship had entered the monitored space.

“Strap yourself in,” Rhea advised, her voice flat. A lifespan spent hiding her parents’ activities had taught her to conceal all emotion.

“They could be friends.” Paloma’s bottom lip curled but she did as she was told.

Her sister thought everyone was a friend. Rhea fastened her harness. “It’s a Humanoid Alliance warship.” She increased the merchant ship’s speed, heading for the planet.

The engines groaned and the panels rattled.

“Captain Lethe and Officer Ghost flew a Humanoid Alliance warship.” Paloma pointed out.

“That’s not their warship.” The human captain and her cyborg had been the strangers who helped Rhea and Paloma at the beginning of their journey, saving them from a Humanoid Alliance attack.

Theirs had been the last friendly faces Rhea and Paloma had seen. The two of them were on their own.

“We could hail the beings in the warship and explain.” Paloma continued to fuss. “Father and Mother aren’t spies. This is all a big misunderstanding.”

“We’re not hailing them.” And it hadn’t been a misunderstanding. Their parents had been spies. But even if it had been a mistake, the Humanoid Alliance wasn’t known for open-mindedness. When in doubt, they killed all the beings in question.

The ship shook as they entered Carinae E’s atmosphere.

“This is why you don’t have any close friends.” Paloma pouted. “You don’t trust anyone.”

Rhea gritted her teeth as she steered their ship. She didn’t have any close friends because her entire life was a lie. It was better not to talk to anyone than to fabricate stories she would have to remember.

And she had trusted someone—Marowit. Guilt coiled low in her gut. Flattered by his attentions, she’d allowed the handsome, charismatic male to woo her, spend time with her, fuck her.

Rhea hadn’t completely let down her guard. She’d been hiding her true self for too long. She didn’t know if total honesty was possible with anyone. But she had shared what she’d thought had been small, unimportant details about her planet rotations.

That mistake led to her parents being captured and executed. She’d killed their mother and father by trusting the wrong being.

Talking Dark Flight Dark Flight and the Thrill of the Chase with Kate Hill

By Cynthia Sax on June 14, 2017

I’m talking about Dark Flight and the Thrill of the Chase with Kate Hill today.

http://kate-hill.com/blog/?p=7006

Here’s a snippet…

Then there are the chases that start as the life and death kind and end as the sexy kind. I consider those the best of both worlds. The hero is chasing the heroine but she doesn’t yet know he’s her hero. He might be the enemy. He might kill her when he catches her. She fears him, perhaps hates him. He grabs her, turns her to face him and…. Bam, super steamy gazes, perhaps a scorching hot kiss.

THAT is the type of chase Orol and Rhea, the hero and heroine of Dark Flight, have when they first meet. She is being hunted by the Humanoid Alliance, the bad guys, and she believes he is one of them. She thinks he plans to kill her. But she is his destined mate. He has very different plans for her.

Talking Dark Flight and Heroines In Peril with Liza O’Connor

By Cynthia Sax on June 13, 2017

I’m talking about Dark Flight and heroines requiring a rescue on the always awesome Liza O’Connor’s blog today.

https://multiuniversesoflizao.blogspot.ca/2017/06/dark-flight-heroine-requiring-rescueby.html

Here’s a snippet…

“Romance writers are often told to create strong heroines, heroines who could rescue themselves. Mary and Rhea are definitely heroines like that. But even the strongest of beings require help from time to time.

In Rhea’s case, she’s injured. She’s alone on a strange planet, not knowing the customs or the geography. Humanoid Alliance baddies are after her. She has to find and protect her sister, the one being in the universe she cares about, and she’s running out of time.

Accepting help wouldn’t make her weak. It would make her smart.”

Interview With Regine Abel

By Cynthia Sax on June 9, 2017

I sat down (virtually) with Regine Abel for a short interview. Today is the release day for Regine Abel’s Anton’s Grace, a Dark SciFi Romance!


Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for Anton’s Grace?

Regine Abel: Anton’s Grace is part of my Dark Tales series. All the books are inspired by a fairy tale, folktale or in this instance, a fable: The Ant and the Grasshopper by Jean de la Fontaine (or Aesop). In the fable, the Grasshopper spends the whole summer singing while the Ant slaves away preparing for winter. When the cold comes and the Grasshopper finds no food, she begs the Ant for some scraps. Depending on which version of the story you read, the Ant either tells her off or shows mercy. In my story, it takes on a darker twist where Grace begs Anton for help not realizing he has a serious vendetta against her.

Cynthia Sax: That is so cool! Where is Anton’s Grace set?

Regine Abel: The story takes place on the Venus Hive pleasure barge. It’s a space station devoted entirely to entertainment in all its forms. Imagine Las Vegas in space, with fine dining, casinos, gladiator rings, cabaret, strippers, fetish clubs and everything else in-between. You can walk past masters with their leashed human pets while on your way to the museum or a tribal dance recital. Anton owns Venus Hive. He makes the law. He is the law. And Grace just gave herself over to his every whim for six months. By getting her to sign an indentured sex slave contract, Anton now has the right to do whatever he pleases to her short of killing her. Question is, does he want her pain? Her pleasure? Both?


Cynthia Sax: That DOES sound dark and delicious. What makes Grace and Anton right for each other?

Regine Abel: Both are desperate to belong, to be accepted. Grace never got over her parents abandoning her to an orphanage where she was abused. She grows into a woman plagued with a Dependent Personality Disorder. Anton was persecuted for being a half-breed. He devoted his life trying to make himself worthy of his bigoted people, despite knowing it was a lost cause. For these reasons, they do things against their conscience in the hope of earning the approval of others who only end up using them. Through hardship, they come to realize happiness lies within their own hands. They are exactly what the other needs but only if they are true to themselves and follow their own hearts, not other people’s expectations or demands.


Cynthia Sax: Beautiful. What do you love about writing in Dark SciFi Romance?


Regine Abel:
The beauty of sci-fi romance is the absence of boundaries. I’m not constrained by the rules of modern day world. Sure, I can’t go too wild and crazy or I’ll spend more time explaining the world than actually telling a story, but it allows me to push the limits in a way contemporary prevents. I love creating new societies and cultures. Anton’s Grace is a perfect example where everything that drives him and pushes him to make some pretty bad decisions are due to the crazy society he grew up in. I also love being able to tie in real world problems to my alien societies and present them in a new light or with a different twist.

Cynthia Sax: This sounds fascinating. Thank you for joining us today, Regine Abel!

Regine Abel’s Website: https://www.facebook.com/regine.abel.author/

*****************************************************************************

Grace is in trouble. Her agent and ex-boyfriend, Marcus, has fled, leaving her stranded on the Venus Hive pleasure barge. His creditors want compensation and with Marcus nowhere to be found, they’ve decided Grace will do nicely. Desperate for help, she turns to Anton Myers, the wealthy and ruthless owner of the Hive Network. He agrees to help her. The terms: anything he wants for six months.

Anton has waited a long time for this moment. Grace may not remember him, but he hasn’t forgotten her. Signing herself over to his every command will not keep her safe. A Braxian never forgets a slight to his honor. And Grace will pay… with interests.

Anton’s Grace is a twisted tale of unlikely second chances that will leave you squirming in your seat. Can you stomach the darkness?

Can love redeem a monster?

The Refuge is home to some of the most violent beings in the universe. Kralj, its leader, reigns over the remote outpost with terrifying ease, ruthlessly squashing any rumors of rebellion, killing anyone who breaks his rules. Primitive, deadly, powerful, he’s a monster, scarred both on his face and his soul. He has never met a being he couldn’t control.

Until he meets her.

Dita has one mission—to kill the three targets claiming sanctuary within the Refuge. Or so she claims. For the first time in his long lifespan, Kralj isn’t certain of another being’s intentions. The tiny assassin is immune to his powers, her thoughts unreadable. He can’t predict her movements, can’t control her, can’t stop wanting her.

Dita is rare, as unique as he is, and, to keep the residents of the Refuge safe, Kralj will have to kill her. But first, he’ll touch her, taste her, show her how passionate the beast inside him can be.

Dark Thoughts is a STAND-ALONE SciFi Romance.
The hero might be tall, dark, and scarred but don’t be fooled by his appearance.
He’s truly a monster.

Interview With TL Reeve

By Cynthia Sax on April 25, 2017

I sat down (virtually) with TL Reeve for a short interview. Today is the release day for TL Reeve’s Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne! Yes, CYBORGS and this is a menage. I don’t really have to say more than that. (grins)


Cynthia Sax: The entire premise of Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne is awesome but what did you find especially thrilling?

TL Reeve: I think what drew me to the story was that, it was different. Sometimes, every story has the same plot. Boy meets girl (or boy) they fall in love throw in some strife and then happy ending. But, with Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne, I could tell it from a different angle. I knew the ending before I wrote the book. Saw it and Lincoln clear as day. So, I knew filling it in would be the fun part. (FYI: Plot twist, but you have to figure it out.)

Cynthia Sax: I do love plot twists! What is your favorite line from Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne?

TL Reeve: “As you wish, temptress.” It’s my favorite line, because throughout the story, Conner would do anything for Flora, and I think this represents their relationship quite well.


Cynthia Sax: Awww… that’s sweet. Where did you get the idea for Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne?

TL Reeve: It’s a submission call for my publisher, and when I stared at the prompt for a minute, Lincoln (my cyborg) jumped into my mind first. I saw him at a bar, drinking, and people watching. He whispered (to me of course) I want to feel human for a night, can you help me? So, I built the story around him, but not just around him. Then when I gave him two humans. It kind of took off from there. However the ending really complements the book. (And you’ll never see it coming.)


Cynthia Sax: (grins) You’re such a tease. How does Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne start?


TL Reeve:
The story opens as a married couple Conner and Flora Mann, are ready to start their swinger cruise near the tropical islands of the planet Vega. It’s their anniversary and they’re doing the one thing Flora has always wanted to do. Be shared. As they’re standing on the small transport ship waiting to dock, you get a glimpse of how prim and proper Flora really is.

Cynthia Sax: This sounds so intriguing. Thank you for joining us today, TL Reeve!

We can help with that.

Conner Mann is on a mission. For his tenth anniversary, he wants to give his wife, Flora, a present she’ll never forget. When he sees an ad for Vega Space Vacations, he knows exactly what to do.

Flora Mann, grew up in a strict home with conservative parents. Expressing her sexual desires never came easy to her due to her prim upbringing, and because of it, she’d never been able to tell her husband what she wants most—a threesome.

Vincent Carver is the man with the plan.

Unit L-2817 or Lincoln to his friends, is ready to experience life through human eyes. As a reformed government mercenary, he’s free to finally experience everything others take for granted—including creating emotional connections. He isn’t sure what love is, but the instant attraction he feels between Conner and Flora, can’t be denied.

Their emotions run high as they contemplate their next moves. Can a cyborg assimilate to their hectic routine? Conner, Flora and Lincoln, are willing to find out. But, what if all they are left with are distant memories?
