Gethyon by Pippa Jay #CoverReveal #SciFi

Today I’m happy to be part of the cover reveal party for Pippa Jay’s new novel, Gethyon. The cover is gorgeous and I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as I do. Drum roll please…….

Told you it was gorgeous. The cover combined with the synopsis has me anxious to get my hands on her latest work.

synopsis

Abandoned. Hunted. Out of control.

Gethyon Rees had always felt at odds with the universe, and hoped for an escape among the stars. But discovering he has the ability to cross time and space with just a thought brings more problems than it solves: a deadly bounty hunter who can follow him anywhere, the unwelcome return of Tarquin Secker—the mother who abandoned him—and an ancient darkness that seeks him and all those with his talents.

When an unforgivable act sets him on the run, it’ll take more than his unearthly powers to save his skin and the lives of those he cares about. It’ll take a sacrifice he never expected to have to make.

A science fiction adventure novel previously published by BURST (Champagne Books), and part of the Travellers Universe. A 2014 SFR Galaxy Award Winner for Most Awesome Psychic Talent and a 2015 EPIC eBook Awards finalist in the Science Fiction category. Also now includes the SF short story The Bones of the Sea.

“With colorful worlds full of nuance and dimension, characters that walk off the page, and themes that anyone who has been either parent or child can relate to.” J.C. Cassels, author of The Black Wing Chronicles series

“This fast-paced, gripping ride zips through time and space, love and loss, rebellion and acceptance.” Anna McLain, SFR Galaxy Award judge

excerpt

“Hello, there.” The bright voice snapped Gethyon from his brooding, and he glanced up. A girl with silver skin and black tiger-stripe markings smiled down at him, her crop of red hair almost blood-colored in the twilight.

He lifted a hand in silent greeting.

“You’re Gethyon, aren’t you? Gethyon Rees?” Despite the blandness of his welcome, she hunkered down into the sand, wiggling her backside in an effort to get comfy, with a crooked grin on her lips. Unease coursed down his spine at her expression. It reminded him all too closely of another face, one with hair a paler shade of auburn and sapphire eyes.

He nodded confirmation.

“I’m Jinxuri Chei-har of the Veen,” she said.

This time Gethyon couldn’t restrain a smile. “That’s some name.”
The girl shrugged. “I didn’t choose it. But you can call me Jinx, if you like.” At that, she thrust out a hand, and after a moment, he took it.

Sudden pain splintered through his arm into his chest, and he yanked his hand free to massage the feeling away. He stared at Jinx, but she just continued to grin at him.

“Are you a friend of Dephon’s?” he asked, with a trace of suspicion. Was this something his old rival had set up to keep him occupied?

“Not really. I heard there was a party, so I stopped by.”

“You’re a gatecrasher?”

Jinx leaned forward and whispered in conspiratorial tones, “Not going to give me away, are you?”

Gethyon shook his head. Why should he care? It wasn’t his party.
She leaned back and eyed him carefully. “You don’t seem very happy.
Aren’t you enjoying yourself?”

Gethyon shrugged.

“Not your kind of thing, huh? I’ve been told you’re a bit of a genius with technology.”

“Who told you that?”

“Oh, I hear things. I’m good at it.” She smiled. “You live with Professor Rees, don’t you? Heard a lot about him. Well-respected man. Your grandfather, yes?”

“Yes.”

“What about your parents, what do they do?”

He stiffened and drew back. “Why do you want to know about my parents?”

Jinx held up her hands. “I’m just trying to make conversation.”

A fragment of guilt squirmed in his stomach. Give her a break. Not everyone is out to get you. After all, living with a grandparent was going to make new people curious. It wasn’t the norm. “My father was killed in an explosion. My mother…travels. A lot.”

“I’m sorry about your father. That’s kinda harsh. But your mother sounds fun! Don’t you get to go with her?”

“No.”

Jinx gave him a sympathetic look. “Bad choice of subject?”

“Yes.”

She chuckled. “You’re really making me work for this conversation, Geth. What would you like to talk about?”

“Where are you from?”

She paused as if she hadn’t expected such a question. “No one place,” she murmured. “I travel a lot too.”

Let’s Play #ThisorThat with Lark and Raynor From #HerAlienProtector #Scifi

logo2

Welcome to This or That Saturday!

Today I’m asking the duo from my Sci-Fi novel, Her Alien Protector, three This or That questions. Their answers may surprise you… then again, if you’ve read the book, maybe they won’t. 🙂

Things are about to get a little steamy, so be sure to turn your fans on. Enjoy!

13130861_528413443997892_273991005791159222_o

This or That #1: Let’s start with something simple. Coffee or tea?

Lark: Coffee.

Raynor: I don’t know what those are.

Lark: They’re beverages imported from Earth. Tea is soothing. But I enjoy coffee.

Raynor: Why? What does it do for you?

Lark: It keeps me sane.

Raynor: Then I don’t need coffee.

Lark: Why not? It’s not like you’re Mr. Sanity. Sometimes you lose it and when you do, things get chaotic. Coffee would help keep you sane.

Raynor: That is why I have you. You keep me sane.

Lark: Oh. Ahh, that’s so sweet babe.

This or That #2: Moving on to number two. Boxers or Briefs?

Lark: I’ll let him answer first.

Raynor: I know what those are. I choose neither. They are too constricting. Lark purchased me a few of the boxers. I ripped them all in half.

Lark: It was an accident. He didn’t mean to.

Raynor: I did mean to. You were naked and they were a barrier…

Lark: What he means to say is that sometimes, when things get heated, he gets a little wild.

Raynor: No, I was saying I wanted to be inside of you and the boxers were in the way.

Lark: Let’s go with my reason, babe. We don’t want to frighten the readers. Okay?

Raynor: The readers understand that when it comes to sex between mates, there must be no barriers.

Lark: Let’s move on to the last question. Please.

This or That #3: Shower or bath?

Lark: Shower. Definitely shower.

Raynor: Shower. It’s more logical. Why would anyone want to sit in their own filth? Plus, I like to watch Lark’s body while we are in the shower together.

Lark: Babe, you don’t have to explain why you like showers.

Raynor: I was simply explaining that I love watching the water roll off your breasts and…

Lark: But that wasn’t part of the question.

Raynor: Understood. But is it wrong that I enjoy making love to you from behind while the water rains down on us?

Lark: Okay, I think we’re done here. My mate and I both have to get back to work.

Raynor: Or perhaps we could go take a shower.

Lark: One shower, then it’s back to work for us.

I hope you enjoyed This or That with Lark and Raynor. I know I did. Return next Saturday to see who else joins us to answer three random questions. Until then, be safe, be happy and read past your bedtime.

synopsis

Falling in love with a prisoner was against the rules.

So why was Lark allowing herself to get close to Raynor? He was domineering, cocky and much too handsome for his own good. Though her mind found him unbearable, her body was ready to endure anything he could deliver. However, inside of him lived a darkness unlike anything she’d ever witnessed. If the rumors were true, that darkness would consume any and everyone in its path. Lark was going to try her best to stay out of his way.

They called him The Destroyer.

Raynor Batiste was many things: a monster, a killer, one of the most feared creatures in the galaxy. He was a beast whose name sent shudders through his enemies. However, a prisoner he was not. He’d only allowed himself to be captured so he could get close to his mate, Lark Valdese.

That task was proving harder than he’d anticipated. Lark is afraid of what lives inside of him, and she should be. Yet, when her planet comes under attack, the evil lurking within him may be the only thing that can save her and her people. He’s willing to protect her planet, but his aid comes at a price, a price only Lark can pay.

Will Beauty give in to the Beast in order to save her world?
Or is he a greater threat than her enemies?

Happy 4th of July weekend and welcome to my stop on the 4th of July romance blog hop. Today I’m sharing an excerpt from my latest Sci-Fi novel, Her Alien Protector.

raynorlarksss2

“Shut the door behind you when you leave,” he told her as he slid the glass stall door closed. She really needed to get a see through door placed on that stall. Once again, he was shutting her out.

Yeah, not happening. She might seem desperate, but to hell with it.
Lark slid the stall door open. “So you’re going to shower with your pants on?”

He was covered in water. His pants soaked. It was really kind of humorous and she would’ve laughed if his chest didn’t look so sexy with water dripping down it.

“I would’ve undressed completely but you’re in the room.”

“I’ve seen you naked before Raynor, remember the bathing pool?”

“How can I forget,” he mumbled as he picked up his bar of cleanser and rubbed it over his chest.

“This is ridiculous. You can’t shower with pants on.” Before he could reply, she reached for the button on his slacks, ignoring the shocked expression on his face.

“What are…?”

Button undone, she quickly pulled his pants down. What sprang forward made her mouth water and it wasn’t just because the spray from the shower was dripping on her head and running down her face.

“Step out of them so I can wring them out and put them in the hamper.” Thank the stars her voice sounded normal because she wasn’t feeling very normal right now. She could feel his eyes on her, hear him breathing and she wondered if his heart was thundering in his chest the way hers was.

He slowly stepped out of the slacks. She picked them up and then walked over to the sink, leaving the stall door open. As she wrung the pants out their gazes once again met in the glass. He was still confused, but his eyes were swirling faster.

Stars, he was the sexiest being she’d ever seen in her life. Nervous, she stared down at the pants. She’d already wrung out every drop of water that she could, but still she twisted, unsure of what to do next.

In the shower, Raynor stood still, water cascading over him as he watched her. Done stalling, she took the wet pants over to the hamper chute and tossed them inside. Now what? With nothing to do with her hands she rubbed them through her hair. The nervous energy coursing through her was making it impossible for her to be still or quiet.

“Now you’re free to shower without getting your clothes wet,” she pointed out the obvious.

A jerk of his head was all she received as a response. He made no move to start showering. Naked they just stood there, both too nervous to make the first move. Lark knew her actions were confusing the hell out of him, especially after what he heard her say on his brethrens’ spacecraft that day.

“Do you need me to wash your back?” She didn’t wait on him to answer, she simply entered the stall and closed the door behind her, shutting them into the small space. Steam rose around them.

Instead of turning his back to her, he turned to face her. “Are you trying to destroy me,” his deep voice rumbled.

Lark shook her head.

“Then why are you doing this?”

“I only want to wash your…”

“Not just this, all of this. Why are you tempting me, reminding me of what I will never have?”

“It’s already yours. All you have to do is accept my apology and claim me.”
