FORBIDDEN LOVE Releases Early!

Hello Romantics!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here, and today I have a special reason. I’m here to share my new book with you, actually, FORBIDDEN LOVE is a short science fiction romance (SFR) novella, and it released at Red Rose Publishing Thursday, May 13. That's a week early! It was one of those hard to explain feelings, exhilarating and stressful at the same time. I planned for a May 20 release and had no idea until That morning that Red Rose bumped FORBIDDEN LOVE up a week. I found out through my editor who emailed to tell me. I have to say I jumped around in a frenzy screaming, OMG! Several times. Then I Settled in and got to work. We are authors. We adapt. FORBIDDEN LOVE is now number five on the main Red Rose Publishing bestseller’s list. Sometimes it all works out. Besides the cover art, I have a a blurb and excerpt too. I hope you enjoy it!

Here's the Forbidden Love Blurb:

T’Kon and Maya are galaxies apart, so different yet so much alike…

Exploring the galaxies at faster than light speed (FTL) is routine for the inhabitants of Asconage. T’Kon’s cool-blood culture exists on a planet in the scorch of binary suns. Yet there are governing archaic rules to prohibit interspecies mating with those from different worlds and evolutionary paths.

When T’Kon crashes his spacecraft on Terrain, a seasonal planet barely on the cusp of space travel, he cannot resist Maya, the warm-blooded audacious female who gives him aid. Their desire for each other entices T’Kon to abandon his species moral code.

There is little time to linger inside this illicit passion. The warring factions of her world are closing in. A quick fix of his spacecraft and a fast exit is his best choice. Can T’Kon leave Maya behind and forsake their emerging Forbidden Love?

And for the Forbidden Love Excerpt:

...She was upon him so near he could feel her breath, sense her warmth. She reached out and ran a hand through the air, searching the length of him.

“Maya,” he blew her name on a sigh.

“Take me with you," she implored, as water filled her astounding tawny eyes. "I want to be with you, T'Kon.” She melded her body against his invisible one.

“You know nothing of me or my world."

“Teach me, show me everything.”

He felt her heat burning inside him, yet the absurdity of her request burned brighter. “What you ask is not possible.”

“Will you please become visible so I can look at you?” She asked. “We need to talk about this before you go flying off into the universe.”

He unshielded his body so she could see him. “I cannot take you.”

“Why not? You can’t say it was coincidence that you happened to crash land in my back yard.”

No, an unfortunate accident. The truthful certainty traced across his mind. Yet his arms enclosed her and he lifted her up. Her legs straddled his waist, and he held her close against his body. A fit so right he could not deny it.

“I wish it were not so, but it is,” he whispered, breathing in her pungent scent. “You would not survive on my world.” He dropped his head to taste her lips before she had a chance to counter his words. “Just one last kiss.” Her mouth opened to allow his tongue entry and he explored the soft moistness, losing himself in her tang.

The stars help him. He did not want to leave her.

Without warning, a sudden and dangerous noise yanked T’Kon from his sexual stupor. He sensed peril approaching. In a rapid-fire move, he raised his palm. A copper arch flashed and shimmered before them revealing the entryway to his concealed spacecraft. He dragged her inside. Tapping a pad the opening closed leaving them hidden behind an undetectable shield..

As a romance author, I lean toward the adventuresome in my writing. I love science fiction and all the enticing quantum theories surrounding it. Where characters rush through outer space at Faster than Light speed, (called FTL in Sci-Fi terms) or teleport into another time, and even slipstream into an alternate reality. I like creating sizzling love scenes too with sexy heroes, and captivating heroines. It just seemed natural to combine all these elements together in my stories and write (SFR) Science Fiction Romance.

I hope you enjoy reading FORBIDDEN LOVE as much as I enjoyed writing it!
