Roan is so far away. Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #WeWriWa #MPreg #MMromance #romance #PNR


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series. This will likely be my last snippet from this story.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Hansol was very upset because he couldn't find any trace of Roan. Well, he's back at work, but he broke down in the shower, where his friend and client, Kish, found him. They're talking when Hansol received a phone call from a Dr. Betaeus. Turns out, it was Roan on the other end.


My heart stopped. All the blood rushed away from my head. If I hadn’t been sitting already, I would have needed to. “Roan? Where are you?”

“Gitown. I’m at the clinic near the omega shelter.” His voice was shaky.

I didn’t know how to react, whether to be mad that he was so far away and demand he come home, or to try and act calm even though I was far from it. Kish rubbed my shoulder blade before standing and heading out of the changing room.

**Above is ten sentences. If you'd like to keep reading more of this snippet, you can find it below.**

“What are you doing there?” Although I wasn’t sure I really wanted to know the answer. Not if he ran all the way there to get away from me. “What happened?”

“They brought me here to question me about Tuan. Then they released me without giving me a ride back to Saramto, or even a chance to call you.” His voice was so high-pitched and quiet at the end I barely heard what he’d said.

“Oh, Roan, I’m so sorry. I didn’t know. I’ll come get you right now.” Nothing would stop me from seeing him again.

“Wait.” I heard him take a deep breath. “There’s something you need to know first. Meet me here tomorrow at Doctor Betaeus’s clinic at three p.m. I’ll tell you at that time and then you can decide if you want to have me back.”



Mink Omega in Hiding 
Shifter Towers book two

Roan is looking for a way out...
As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing, gang-ruled world I lived in. But, one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Someplace I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…
After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Will they find their way back to each other?
Then Roan shows up on my doorstep, soaking wet, and with no belongings. Of course, I take him in. But I don’t know how long I have until he leaves again. Can I trust him this time? Can I finally claim him as my mate? Or am I holding onto false hope? Because I know there is something he is keeping from me.

Mink Omega in Hiding is a super sweet with knotty heat shifter M/M mpreg romance featuring a mink shifter escaping horrific abuse, a reconnection with an alpha friend from the past who stands between him and danger, and the discovery of what really could happen between them. It is the second book in the popular Shifter Towers series and can be read as a standalone.

No sight or scent of him. Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #MPreg #romance #PNR #MMromance #Omegaverse


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Roan was in the back of a police cruiser, but realized he wasn't being taken to the police station in Saramto. Many of you hoped Hansol would be following, but, unfortunately, he was at his own home as it was searched. Here's an update from Hansol... (edited from published version to fit the ten sentence limit)


Five days; it had been five days since Roan was arrested for Tuan’s murder. Four days since I found out he was released because Pog confessed to the murder, and I still had no idea where my mate was. His phone had been in my office when he’d been arrested then the police had confiscated it for evidence, and I don’t know if he ever got it because no one answered when I called or texted. But why couldn’t he have phoned me from the police station to come and pick him up? Why didn’t he come home?

My lawyer had been no help at all. He had met me when I rushed into the station and claimed Roan wasn’t there when he’d arrived, that he’d already been released.

I spent two days looking for my mate. In my human form during the day, and as a bear at night, hoping to sniff him out. But I couldn’t find any sight or scent of him in Saramto.

An inescapable situation. Read a #WeWriWa snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #MPreg #romance #MMromance #PNR #Omegaverse


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series, is now available.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Roan was arrested for the murder of the gang leader who did some horrible things to him before Roan had managed to escape. But were they really cops? This is in Roan's POV. Enjoy!


As soon as they’d shoved me in the car, one of the officers had injected me with a shot of Fycerera so I couldn’t shift. It had been almost two weeks since my last injection of the stuff, and this time it had burned through my veins. Tears leaked down my cheeks, but I couldn’t wipe them away. I simply kept blinking until my vision finally cleared.

I hadn’t been in Saramto that long, but I’d lived here long enough during my college years to know the cruiser was not driving to the police station. With my hands cuffed behind my back, there wasn’t much I could do. There were no locks to pop open or handles to grab to make a daring escape. I was stuck. And I knew from previous experience that keeping my mouth shut was best in this situation. That way, I wouldn’t get hurt any more than what they planned to do to me; but what were their plans?

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Hansol finally confessed he always wanted Roan for his mate. And while things go well for a while, Roan's past isn't ready to rest yet.... Enjoy!


“Roan Lavallee, you have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in—”

“Wait!” I shoved Roan behind me before the officer could put the cuffs on him. “What are you even arresting him for? Where’s your warrant?”

“For the murder of Tuan Rawlins.” The detective pulled a collection of papers from the front pocket of his suit. “Now, please step aside so Officer Cole can do his job. Besides, I have another warrant here to search your home, as we know he has been staying with you for the past couple of weeks.”

Hansol finally confesses his feelings. Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #MPreg #romance #AOB #Omegaverse #PNR


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series, is now available.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Hansol came to Roan's rescue, saying Roan was his. As hopeful as Roan was about that statement, it took much longer for Hansol to finally confess he always wanted Roan for his mate. Enjoy! (First line is Hansol's, and it's in his point of view. Punctuation changed to fit ten sentence limit.)


“Since we were in college together.”

His bottom lip quivered, the only falter in his expression. “All this time you kept that to yourself, acted as if we were nothing more than friends? Why, Han; why didn’t you tell me then?”

I cupped his cheek. “I was so afraid to lose you, just as I am right now. We were best friends, and I didn’t want to change that, so I denied my bear’s instincts.”

“And he probably hates you for it.” Roan leaned into my palm. “Nothing would have changed; I kept hoping you would claim me; all those times we slept in the same bed, and I’d rub against you, desperately hoping you’d get the message.”

Finding love on a planet millions of miles away from Earth. FIRE BEYOND THE FROST by @TheaLanden #romance #lesfic #scifirom


FIRE BEYOND THE FROST
by Thea Landen

Following a failed relationship with her supervisor at work, Dr. Catalina Frost volunteers her services with a charitable organization providing medical aid to those in need. In her first journey away from her home planet of Earth, she travels to the opposite end of the galaxy to the icy world of Ruvuk. Dismal weather conditions and an unfamiliar species of aliens take her far outside her comfort zone, but she’s determined to fulfill her obligations.

When Sari, a human settler on Ruvuk, first heard about a doctor being assigned to lend assistance to her health clinic in a remote village, she never expected the gorgeous woman who walked through her door. She introduces her to the planet’s ways of life and is impressed by her skills and experience. Though she drops hints about her growing attraction to Catalina, she’s shocked when those feelings are reciprocated.

The pair embarks on a romantic fling, but the definitive end date of Catalina’s assignment approaches quickly. She wants to plan for the future, but Sari has been hurt by false promises before and asks that they simply enjoy the time they have left. Will they each return to their separate lives or can they find a way to reunite somewhere in the galaxy?

AVAILABLE FROM: AMAZON



The music stopped. Hundreds of heads tilted back, excited faces turned skyward in a synchronous movement threaded with palpable anticipation. Four incandescent orbs loomed overhead, shining in radiant shades of orange and gold. The spaces between them measured a similar distance, yet Catalina couldn’t understand why the lopsided figure was cause for such a tribute.

A near-imperceptible shift in the spheres’ positions removed all traces of her skepticism. Murmurs fluttered through radiating circles around her as the moons locked into place, creating a flawless square with the plateau at its center. In that instant, she was struck by the magnitude of the perfect alignment and its effect on her. While her journey to Ruvuk had been arranged due to her professional expertise, it turned out to serve many other purposes. The magnificent sight erased her doubts regarding her reasons for leaving Earth. Her decision had proved to be the right one.

Someone’s hand rested on the small of her back. Catalina looked away from the moons, her head swiveling to the side. All sets of eyes were focused on the sky, save one. Sari stood at her  shoulder, her face bathed in the lunar glow. Beneath the edge of her knit hat, her round eyes gleamed with their usual liveliness. There was a slight change, however, something darker in their depths.

Her sly remarks and pointed comments had always been couched in a tone of flirtatious teasing. Tonight, there was no denying the hunger revealed in her sensual expression. Berry-red lips parted, silently asking the remaining question. The harmonious combination of the symbolic moment and her alluring charm made the plea impossible to refuse.

Catalina turned her body to allow Sari’s arm to circle her waist as she leaned forward. She hesitated, letting the proximate warmth of the other woman’s mouth dispel the cold air between them. Another hand settled on her hip. Its blazing intentions were clear, even through the thick padding of heavy outerwear.

Their lips met in a soft kiss. All the restless nights spent wondering about Sari’s true feelings toward her felt insignificant. Now that she experienced the searing imprint of her companion’s touch, she didn’t want to leave it.

She allowed Sari passage to her mouth, their tongues mingling in a delicate spiral. Without breaking their contact, Catalina rested her gloved hands on Sari’s shoulders. The grip on her waist tightened, drawing their bodies closer. Her fingers entwined behind Sari’s back as their lips melded together, soothing and stimulating the ache in her core. The sweet taste of the kiss ignited hidden desires. She wanted more.

Who will rescue Roan? Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #WeWriWa #8Sunday #romance #MMromance #MPreg #PNR


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series, is now available.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Roan's past caught up with him, and he was in a very bad situation. I'm skipping a few sentences where Pog threatens him even more. And now, what you've all been waiting for...


Then I heard a door slam. Had someone else arrived to have their turn, finish me completely?

“Get off him!” I thought I recognized the new voice, but it sounded deeper than normal.

I was jerked forward, Pog clutching me as someone yanked him back. I fell to the floor then scrambled over to cower in a corner.

Bodies slammed against lockers and benches, but I was too frightened to look up to see what was going on. I’d learned long ago to stay small and out of the way when fights break out or risk getting beaten myself.

“He’s mine, asshole,” a voice growled. Hansol’s voice.



Mink Omega in Hiding

Roan is looking for a way out...
As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing, gang-ruled world I lived in. But, one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Someplace I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…
After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Roan can't escape his past. Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #WeWriWa #romance #PNR #MPreg #MMromance


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series, is now available.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Roan opened up a little more, and they were starting to feel comfortable with each other again. I'm skipping ahead quite a bit. Hansol has given Roan his own room, and a job at his gym. It's not glamorous, but Roan is still thankful to be contributing somehow. Unfortunately, it's there that Roan's past catches up with him. (Awkward punctuation to make it fit the 10 line limit.)


“Wow, I thought I recognized that ass.” He pushed me against the wall, pressing his groin against my stomach. “How did you get all the way here? I know you don’t belong to Tuan anymore, since he was murdered, but I thought Stone would have laid his claim on you by now.”

I gasped. Murdered; that’s what happened; that’s why the police were there? I wanted to be happy, thankful he could never come looking for me, that he’d never hurt me again. Somehow that past life had still found me.

“No, I don’t belong to anyone.” I tried to duck away from him, escape as I already had once, but he maintained his hold, pressing his forearm to my neck.

All for the hope of a better future. SPACE RACE by Laurel Richards @Laurel_R_books #scifirom #romance #books




Space Race by Laurel Richards 

Space Race is a fast-paced sci-fi novel with a sweet romance between the hero and heroine, Max and Clara. The main characters are people without a lot of money or connections, but all they want is a chance to succeed. The land rush on planet Caerus is exactly the opportunity they need.

Inspired by the real-life Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889, this futuristic race is a competition for free land on a terraformed planet. Thousands upon thousands of teams are entered to win as much property as they can claim. Cities will form within half a day, transforming Caerus in a matter of hours. And like The Amazing Race, the competition is big entertainment.

First, though, Max and his team have to reach Caerus. Their secondhand ship keeps springing leaks and suffering electrical shorts, making space travel a dangerous endeavor. They take a big risk, all for the hope of a better future.


Blurb:

The race is on! Maxton and his family are entered to compete in the big land rush on planet Caerus. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. The problem? Everything seems to go wrong. Their secondhand ship keeps breaking down, their cousin goes missing, and someone steals half their funds. They have to turn to a staffing agency to get somebody to take a look at their shipboard computers.

When Clara accepts a temp job aboard the Merit, she figures she’ll only be on the ship for about an hour. That’s all the time she needs to run a diagnostic on the computers, but then Max shocks her with an invitation to join his team. The man is handsome and single, and participating in the competition could change her whole life. But can they win?

Although this ragtag group may not look impressive from the outside, they have strength, determination, and smarts. They’ll need all those qualities if they want to win this amazing space race.

Content: This book contains a sweet romance, a dilapidated space ship, and a great deal of running.

Available from: 





Excerpt:

After ten years employed as a temp, Clara had experienced countless first days at various jobs. She usually didn’t get nervous anymore, but she took a deep breath before she got closer to the ship. All her agency had told her was that Captain Quade wanted a Tech Support Specialist to run a diagnostic on his computer system. Clara had no education in computers and was by no means an expert. However, she had picked up a trick or two during some of her assignments, and she could certainly follow a troubleshooting manual. She only hoped the captain didn’t expect some kind of software engineer. 

Pasting on her professional smile again, she closed the distance to the ship. She was about to shout up to one of the crew members silhouetted on top of the hull when a man walked around the nose of the Merit. He wasn’t wearing a shirt, and her gaze drifted over his broad shoulders and bare, muscular chest. Either he was tan from the sun, or his skin was naturally golden. She conducted a thorough topographical survey of his physique before she forced her stare back upward. The view higher up was no less striking. His strong jaw, currently shadowed by stubble, was balanced by a straight nose and sharply arched eyebrows. The hair on top of his head was dark brown and tied back into a short tail. The rest was cut close to his scalp and dyed a rich green the same hue as his eyes. He came to an abrupt stop and stared right back at her. 

“Pardon me,” he said. 

Although Clara wasn’t much of a blusher, her cheeks felt distinctly warm. She was certain he was chastising her for ogling him. Then he picked up a shirt that was hanging on the stairs leading up to the ship’s entry door. He slipped the garment over his head, and she realized he was actually apologizing to her for his state of undress. 

“You must be from Forseti.” She had never left Attis, but she had always enjoyed learning about other cultures. The colorful hair, coupled with his Old World manners, gave him away. He also spoke the universal language with a slight accent. “Are you Captain Quade?” 

“Yes, I’m from Forseti, but no, I’m not the captain. He’s inside.” The man reached out to shake her hand with a firm grip. “I’m Maxton Celestino. Most people call me Max.” 

“What do the rest call you?” she teased him. 

His green eyes twinkled when he grinned. “My relatives have been known to use more inventive names when they’re annoyed with me.” 

“Ah, well, family members get special dispensation.” She held his gaze for a moment before she reminded herself why she was here. “I’m Clara Vale with Stellar Staffers. The agency sent me to take a look at your computers.” 

Max’s expression darkened, as sure as if a cloud had passed overhead. “Right this way.” 

He indicated the stairs and stepped back for her to precede him. Then he looked her over and appeared to change his mind. He led the way onto the ship. She was halfway up the stairs behind him before she realized he was being polite again. If she had gone ahead of him, he would have had a clear view up her skirt. Max Celestino really was a gentleman. 

Once aboard, she followed her well-mannered guide to the flight deck. A larger man was double-checking some wiring in the cockpit. His hair was uncolored and long enough to form a large bun high on the back of his head, with a fishtail braid hanging to one side. 

“Korin,” Max said, “Clara Vale is here from the temp agency. Clara, this is our captain.” 

“Nice to meet you.” She met those brown eyes dead-on and reached out to shake his hand. A good first impression was critical on any assignment. “Thank you for choosing Stellar Staffers.” 

“I appreciate you coming so quickly. I know this was short notice.” Captain Quade motioned for her to enter the cockpit. “We had some issues during the flight. I need you to run a full diagnostic on our primary computers and backup processors.” 

Clara tried to appear confident as she took a seat in front of the control panel. In truth, she had no idea if this was the pilot’s chair or the copilot’s chair. This was her first time on the flight deck of a big ship. Her previous experiences were with smaller gliders and planet-based computers. 

She got everything booted up and breathed a sigh of relief when she saw a familiar screen. “Nexus 2000. Nice.” 

These computers were more complicated than what she was used to, but they were several years old. She could muddle her way through. If they’d had the newer models, she would have been in trouble. 

“Nice?” Max asked. “We were told our system is outdated and should be upgraded.” 

She shook her head. “What you have is much more reliable. The Millennium 10 OS is awful. It mostly enhanced the security features of the Nexus 2000, with a DNA scan in addition to the retinal and palm scans.” She sniffed. “Half the computers that were upgraded with it crashed during the first boot-up. I’ve heard the manufacturer has put out at least a dozen software patches to try to fix the problems. This older system? I bet you haven’t had one glitch.” 

“Oh, we’ve had glitches,” Korin said. 

“With the operating system?” She was surprised. 

“A short circuit,” Korin admitted. 

“That’s an electrical problem, then. The computers are good. If you’ll log me in, I’ll run a full diagnostic to prove it. I don’t think you have to worry.” 

The captain logged her in with a palm scan and an old-fashioned alphanumeric password. 

“I’ll need you or someone else with the password and security clearance to remain close,” she told him. “I may need to reboot the computers more than once.” 

“Very well,” Korin agreed. 

She worried that he and Max were going to stand right behind her, looking over her shoulder the whole time. Fortunately, they wandered a short distance out of the cockpit. 

“Okay,” Clara whispered to herself. “You can do this.”

Always the charmer. Read a snippet from MINK OMEGA IN HIDING #MPreg #romance #LGBTQ #PNR #WeWriWa


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited me last weekend! MINK OMEGA IN HIDING is an MM paranormal romance, the second book in my Shifter Towers series, is now available.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet. Hansol tried to get more information from Roan. In this weekend's snippet, I've skipped a few sentences to where Roan feels comfortable enough to share how he met Tuan, the leader of the Tanks. This is in Hansol's POV and the first line of dialogue is Roan's. (Next weekend, I'm going to move on from this scene to a new chapter.)


“He came in with a gunshot wound. Refused to talk to anyone. Even the doctors.” He moved on to the sweet potatoes. “Somehow, simply by stopping by, I got him talking.”

“You always were a charmer.” I held my breath, chastising myself for saying anything. I was supposed to simply listen.

But instead of clamming up like I expected, he turned to face me with a shy and embarrassed smile. A look I fell for many years ago and couldn’t get enough of.



Mink Omega in Hiding 
Shifter Towers book two

Roan is looking for a way out...
As a mink shifter omega, I never thought I’d escape the soul-crushing, gang-ruled world I lived in. But, one night on my way home from working at the strip club, the opportunity arose. I needed to find a place to hide, somewhere I could go where no one from this life would ever find me. Someplace I could start over. With my parents deceased, I only had one person from my past I could ask for help. But would he want to see me again?

Hansol has everything in his life, except his mate…
After two years of running a successful fitness center with celebrities as my personal clients and friends, one would think I had everything I’ve ever wanted. But I don’t. The one thing I still desire is to have my mate by my side. Something my sun bear keeps reminding me of every day. Sure, I’ve had plenty of omegas and other alphas in my bed, but no one I want to wake up with each morning. That person left my life years ago with no explanation and no goodbye.

Will they find their way back to each other?
Then Roan shows up on my doorstep, soaking wet, and with no belongings. Of course, I take him in. But I don’t know how long I have until he leaves again. Can I trust him this time? Can I finally claim him as my mate? Or am I holding onto false hope? Because I know there is something he is keeping from me.

Mink Omega in Hiding is a super sweet with knotty heat shifter M/M mpreg romance featuring a mink shifter escaping horrific abuse, a reconnection with an alpha friend from the past who stands between him and danger, and the discovery of what really could happen between them. It is the second book in the popular Shifter Towers series and can be read as a standalone.
