Book Spotlight: Beyond The Next Star by Melody Johnson

Beyond the Next Star

Love Beyond Book 1

by Melody Johnson

Genre: SciFi Romance

An intolerable order. A desperate charade. A deadly secret…

Before Commander Torek Renaar can return to active duty, he’s ordered to purchase an animal companion to help relieve his PTSD symptoms. But having been a caretaker for and lost a loved one, keeping even one little human alive is a challenge he feels doomed to fail. It doesn’t help that his animal companion is the newest, most exotic breed on the market, demanding constant attention, daily grooming, and delicate handling. If she doesn’t die first in his incompetent care, she’ll be the death of him.

After witnessing the murder of her domestication specialist, Delaney McCormick allows her new owner to treat her like the pet he believes her to be. If anyone suspects she’s more intelligent than a golden retriever, her murder would be next. She endures the humiliation of being washed, the tediousness of being trained to “sit” and “come”, and the intrigue of hearing private conversations. But in Torek’s care, she finds something unexpected on this Antarctic planet, something she never had in all her years on Earth while house-hopping between foster families: a home.

As companionship grows to love, must Delaney continue the charade, acting like an animal and hiding from the murderer waiting for her misstep? Or can she trust Torek with her secrets, even if the truth threatens everything he holds dear—and both their lives?

Sneak Peek of Awakening by E. J. Dawson

Silence fell on the hills.

They’d landed.

Ayla needed to come up with a plan, some method of getting her and Kabe through if Skarlatos found the camp. Slinging the gun on her back, a brief throbbing in her leg warned her not to be too stupid as she crossed to the base of the tree. The thick knotholes allowed her to climb, and she hoisted herself up. The rock top was too exposed. Anyone under its large canopy would see her, but she was otherwise well hidden.

Ayla was careful to lay her bad leg out flat along one branch, her weight on her other leg crouched under her on a wide bough. She watched below for any signs of encroachment on the camp. A nearby branch offered an excellent pivot point so that if she needed to, she could swing around the trunk of the tree and use it for cover.

With only three flares, she’d need all the help she could get.

Still working through methods of defense, she caught a rustling in the trees that wasn’t the wind. Shadows threaded their way through the shrubs on the tree’s periphery. They didn’t belong to the dark of the jungle; someone had found them.

Six lines fanned out, closer to their position.

There was no sign of Leith or Casey.

“I found a tent,” One called to the others as the shadows closed in. Six men in armor, lit dimly with the link to their weapons, visors over their faces, a bulbous comm over one ear.

Ayla had to wait until they were on top of her, then. One breath, two, three . . .

Awakening

Queen of Spades Book 1

by EJ Dawson

Genre: SciFi Action Romance

 

Ayla is a villain. With a gift that allows her to see when anyone will die, she’s remorseless in her profession as the perfect assassin. When she wakes up in a cryo-tank three thousand years in the future, and no idea how she came to be there, all that matters is survival.

Rescued by Leith and the crew of the Nuria, Ayla discovers a far evolved world of space ships and galactic colonization. But everything comes with a price, and though Ayla is no princess locked in an icy tower, she still has to pay for the rescue she didn’t know she needed.

Given over to Leith, a darkly handsome man who reads Ayla far easier than she’d like, they must work together if Ayla is to repay her debt. As the pair come to learn how dangerous one another are, so too grows a lustful bond that comes with rules of its own. Fighting to learn why she was frozen, Ayla’s dragged into Leith’s past with a criminal organization seeking to take over this sector of the galaxy. In order to survive, Leith will need Ayla’s help, but Ayla doesn’t know if she’s willing to pay what it will cost her…

EJ Dawson was born rather tardily (a fault that was to continue throughout life) in the picture perfect spring of 1983 in Canberra, Australia. Growing up on an abandoned mine next to a huge pine forest, time turned the once lovely weatherboard house and carefully kept grounds into creaky old home with rambling gardens. A wondrous place for a child to explore, accompanied by parents devoted to books and reading aloud.

From this her thirst for fiction was grown, nurtured, and has never ended.

Flitting between wanting to be a vet, biologist, meteorologist, archaeologist she settled into a double degree in history and archaeologist before moving into the working world. During school and university she never stopped writing, including taking creative writing courses and starting on her own novels, the first being finished when she was eighteen.

None of these seemed to be quite right, and so the writing never stopped.

Losing several novels over the years, in 2014 during a spontaneous moment a book involving airship chases and things that crept in the dark leapt to mind, and the first 50 thousand words written in the course of several weeks over a hot summer. Still reeling from the initial idea, the world she had created came into bloom, one novel idea at a time, until an intricate web had formed.

The Last Prophecy.

A steampunk flavoured suspenseful fantasy series has been likened to the Mummy crossed with Star Trek by reviewers.

EJ Dawson currently resides in rural Victoria with her loving husband, demanding felines, and very relaxed python. Still working full time, when she isn’t writing, she’s playing RPG games, computer games, and, of course, reading.

Sneak Peek of Bionic Passion by L. C. Owens

“Eureka!” he said.
He peeled the mask from his head, setting it to the side, then jumped inside the pink goop. His arms and legs slowed in the gel atmosphere. He held his breath as he sank, trying to pull her from the trenches of no return. He pulled her heavy arms toward him, but Amelia’s body made little movement in the goop. He pulled a bit harder, kicking his legs to propel them to the top. Taking her around the chest, he held her in his strong arms. Finally, they made it to the top where Avery took in a big gasp for air. Their hair wet and matted to their heads, they gave each an intense gaze. Amelia remembered how to use her lungs, taking in a heap of fresh air. The pair of them sat on the top of the stairs, out of breath from the exchange.
“Avery, you came back for me,” she said.
His hand gave her cheek a gentle cradle, pulling her eyes to catch his. Although they were both covered in a slimy goop, the attraction was palpable. He leaned in, giving her a gentle kiss. He pulled her back, seeing that she was naked. His body reacted to her round hips and large breasts, but knew he couldn’t think of that now.
“We have to get you out of here,” he said. Amelia nodded.
They stood up, hand-in-hand as he led her down the staircase. Once at the bottom, she wrapped her arms around his neck. His hands slipping around her waist, he indulged in the feel of soft skin beneath the sliding goop. Her face angled toward his earlobe, she let her breath graze his skin.
“Thank you,” she whispered.
“I know where we can find some showers. Let’s go,” he said, pulling her out of the room.
Amelia’s reluctant feet stepped on the cold tile,but she was overcome with a bad feeling.
“I have to go back, Avery.”
“What? Go back? Why?”
“They said you’d be in a lot of trouble for stealing me. Maybe I am just a dumb robot. I don’t want anything bad to happen to you,” she cried, a small tear escaping down her cheek.
Astonished, Avery took his finger to wipe it away, then observed it.
“You can cry?”
“I guess so,” she shrugged.
“Come on. I’ve come too far to turn around and leave you here.”
“But where will we go? What will we do? They’ll come after you, Ave,”
His heart fluttered when she called him that. Only his close friends and family every called him that, and Amelia just knew to say it instinctively. He squeezed her hand, then pulled it up to his lips to kiss it.

Author Breanna Hayse shares Lost and Found

Lost and Found
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: SciFi Romance
Lance Callahan, MD, is known to his hospital staff as a man with a heart of
gold. When a young woman is brought in with a gunshot wound and
severe post-traumatic amnesia, Lance is just the man to care for her.
No one knows who she is, where she’s from, or why she was left to
perish in the unforgiving desert. Even her name, Noelle, is known to
Lance only from an inscription on a necklace found in her pocket.
In his effort to help Noelle, Lance determines that due to the trauma
she has suffered, the young woman requires retraining to become
age-appropriate in all of her activities. Her little girl persona
further shocks him when she suddenly claims him as her “Daddy.”
With nowhere else for her to go, Lance turns to his close-knit family for
help, and Noelle suddenly finds herself with a new aunt and two new
uncles, along with more love than she can handle. She quickly learns
that there are some very specific rules in the Callahan home, for
both Daddy’s little girl and Lance’s big girl, and that the
consequences for breaking the rules include a very red and sore bottom!
Questions remain about Noelle’s past, and as the mystery of her origins slowly
unravels, it becomes clear that Noelle has a very special secret of
her own… a secret that could tear apart everything she’s learned to
love, including the joy of being lost and then found by a man who’s
given his heart to her.
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
