3013: FATED by Susan Hayes
Pub Date: 11/17/2015
Length: 175 pages
Rebel medic Ciara Fanning has called the badlands home for more than a decade. Raised in the Alliance, she spent the first half of her life defined by what she wasn’t—fertile, valued, deserving of her family’s love. Now, she lives beyond the Alliance’s reach and defines her worth by the lives she’s saved and the people she’s healed.
Alliance Elites Dr. Vance Sterling and Dane Foster live for the joys of raising their daughter, Annie. It’s been more than two years since they buried Annie’s mother, but neither man has been ready to move on… until they meet a redheaded rebel with no place to stay and a heart as battered as their own.
Dane and Vance have dedicated their lives to defending the Alliance way of life while Ciara has dedicated hers to helping those who live outside Alliance lands. Can they heal old wounds and forge a new life together, or will the dark ghosts of the past steal their future before it’s even begun?

Pub Date: 11/17/2015
Length: 186 pgs
Vapor is the most advanced cyborg the Humanoid Alliance has ever developed. He’s a finely honed weapon, a warrior without parallel, half man and half machine. No lock can contain him. No being can stop him. Whatever he wants, he takes.
He wants Mira Breazeal, the Designer’s daughter.
“I want more. I want your honesty and your lies, your submission and your rebellion, your unbreakable spirit and your unending softness. I want to be your now and your future, the male you wake up with and the warrior you fight beside.”
Alien Invasion, 1954 by Melisse Aires
List Price 2.99 KU
Pub Date: 11/15/2015
Length: 63 pgs
Think 1950’s B Movie!
Highly Advanced Aliens invade Earth and Earthlings have no defense. Somehow Debbie Sue and her one year old nephew survive the invasion. Later, forced to forage for food, she is captured by an alien, Akarak of the Vinshal. Akarak wants to help humans. He also says sex will keep him healthy.
Debbie Sue wonders if that is a line.
Warning: This sci-fi romance novella contains sexy times, a non-human alien hero, small dogs, children, and a heroine who wears skirts, bakes bread and mimeographs.
The alien slapped himself with both arms and all his other appendages—his long spiked tail and the greenish tentacles that grew on the end. “Akarak.”
He slapped his chest and Debbie Sue realized that was his name. “No harm. Harm bad.”
Harm bad. Debbie Sue nodded, a rush of relief mixing with her fear, making her legs weak. She slapped herself on the chest with one hand since she still held Bobby. “Debbie Sue. No harm, harm bad.” She patted the baby. “Bobby no harm, harm bad.”
The alien stared at her with his faceted eyes. “Debbie SSuue. Bobbeee.” He repeated. Then he pointed at the dog.
“Dog.” She waved a hand at the dog cowering at her feet. “Scamper. No harm. Harm bad.”
“Dog Sssscamperr. Harm bad.”
The alien brought the grocery cart into the foyer. He didn’t roll it but carried it like a basket.
“Live. Eat. Sleep.” Akarak turned and left.

Keir by Pippa Jay
Sale price: $0.99 until the end of 2015
List Price: 4.99
Pub Date: 5/7/2015
Length: 326 pgs
A scifi-fantasy along the lines of Doctor Who, but where the heroine is the time-traveller and the romance is out of this world.
The kiss burned through her body, a slow whisper of flame that told her how much he wanted her.
Keir is an absolutely stunning work of science fiction romance.

Sometimes it takes losing the one thing closest to a warrior’s heart to wake the beast that lives inside him…
Saber, a wounded Trivator, believes he is no longer a fit warrior, much less strong enough to claim a mate. Scarred, he does everything in his power to push away the delicate human female he has fallen in love with. He knows that she deserves a warrior who can protect her, not one that will need her constant help.
Taylor Sampson may be human, but that doesn’t make her weak. She and her two older sisters survived living on Earth for four years after their world went crazy. She is all grown up now and has her eye on the one stubborn Trivator that captured her heart seven years before.
Taylor has one last requirement in order to complete her schooling. Once she finishes, she plans to show Saber that he is the man she wants, but when the planet she is on erupts into a civil war, she is trapped behind enemy lines. When Saber discovers that Taylor has been left behind, the warrior inside him refuses to think of her as collateral damage in a savage battle for power.
Journey to a lawless, alien world and discover what happens when the beast awakens inside a damaged Trivator warrior when the woman he loves is threatened
