Mixed Signals (Off the Grid) by Alyssa Cole 

mixedsignalsPrice: $3.49

Length: 179 pages

Pub Date: October 19, 2015

The Blurb

Four years after the Flare, the world is finally starting to rebuild.

For Maggie Seong, that means leaving the safety of her family’s cabin for college. She won’t be alone, though—hunky former military cadet Edwin Hernandez, family friend and self-appointed Protector of Maggie’s Virtue, will be there. Maggie would much prefer that Edwin himself dispose of her “innocence,” but he’s already rejected her advances once, and a girl has her pride.

Things look pretty bleak romance-wise until Maggie discovers that Devon, the pre-Flare internet boyfriend she’d assumed was dead, is not only alive but on campus. Despite the passage of time, their bond is strong, and they quickly pick up where they left off. Even as Devon aims for a chance at love IRL—everything Maggie thought she’d wanted—Edwin’s desire to protect her makes her question her heart.

Maggie’s torn between the future she didn’t dare to hope for and the past she can’t let go of. And when a group of neo-Luddite terrorists threaten the campus, everyone’s loyalties will be tested. To ensure that the world doesn’t go back to the dark days following the Flare, Maggie might have to sacrifice it all.

Book three of Off the Grid.  Read Radio Silence and Signal Boost, available now!

Beyond Regeneration by Jenny Schwartz

beyondregenerKindle Price: $0.99 KU

Available on Amazon

Length: 207 pgs
Pub date: October 6, 2015

About

Intrigue, heartbreak and love. What does it mean to be human when you’re bio-enhanced? Includes non-outer space alien.

Excerpt

“Jack met Charley at Sydney airport Sunday morning. He looked as quietly self-possessed as ever, although his tiredness showed in the bruised appearance of the skin under his eyes. Beige gloves hid his hands. He hesitated, then hugged Charley, surprising her.
Although she didn’t return the embrace, just for an instant she enjoyed the feeling of solid bone and muscle, and the faint scent of soap. She stepped back. “You look tired.”

He smiled. “People in glasses houses…”

“Point taken.” She hadn’t bothered with make-up for the plane flight, and she knew the long hours of the conference, of interviews and of writing showed on her face.

“Charley, I was sorry to hear of Eric’s death. I was overseas at the time or I’d have come to the funeral.”

“Thanks.” She fidgeted with the strap of her shoulder bag. Even after two years she found it hard to deal with sympathy, and even harder to think of Eric’s death. To have worked safely for six years in Nigeria, only to die in a road accident on a Christmas visit home, was an irony Charley couldn’t accept.”

About

In space, you can’t hide from temptation…

Nick-named Hardass by the new recruits, Leigh Alphin is captain of the Fighter Force of the battleship Valiant Knox. He’s honorable, straightforward, and hard as nails – except for the soft spot he has for a young woman he rescued off a transport under attack. Now that she’s one of his new recruits, it’s imperative he stop thinking about her in that way.

Especially now that the Knox has been secretly infiltrated by the enemy.

Mia Wolf’s new commanding officer is icy, no-BS, and completely gorgeous. His glances send heat searing through her. Neither of them can afford to make this mistake, yet desire takes hold, consuming them. For the first time, Leigh’s iron sense of honor falters as his heart fights for love… and against an enemy trying to destroy everything they hold dear.

Defying the Alliance by Bobbie Ross

defyingallianceSALE PRICE: $.99 until October 23
List Price: $2.99

Available on Amazon

Print Length: 128 pages
Pub Date: October 7, 2015

About:

Nowhere in Captain Caspia Jones agenda did it say free the slaves, fight the Novokin Imperial guards or bring home a ferocious, smoldering hot alien dipped in delicious muscles and cooked to a golden perfection.

One spitfire captain, one deliciously sexy alien warrior and one ship…to save the galaxy!

Quote from the book:

Yet my unconscious mind, unrelenting and always vigilant shouted at me – It’s ridiculous, you’ve only known this alien for a day and a half. You’re the Captain. You can’t fraternize with people under your command. These people depend on you. To keep them safe. Safety requires focus and protocol. Romantic entanglements are only a distraction, a distraction you can’t afford – I knew I had to put a stop to this before my body’s rebellion got out of hand.
