Lieutenant Commander Ashton ‘Ash’ Haze has always embraced two things in his life: adventure and women. He gets more than he expects when he wakes on an alien planet after the experimental spaceship he and his companions are on is pulled through an ancient gateway they have been sent to explore. Now, his priorities have changed – or so he thought.

Kella Ta’Qui is a Turbinta – a race known for their skills as an assassin. Taken from her home as a child, she is trained in the deadly skills as a silent killer. Her first mission is to find and kill whatever was inside the unusual capsule that landed on the small planet of Tesla Terra. Her mission soon turns from one of predator to prey when she finds herself wounded after an encounter with her would-be target. Dazed and confused, she stumbles onto others that would sell her to the highest bidder. Despair turns to hope when an unexpected male suddenly appears and carries her to safety.

Ash’s skills from his wayward youth and his training in the Navy come in handy when he discovers a desert city, but nothing prepares him for the impact on his emotions when he comes across a wounded alien woman. His discovery that she knows where a fellow crew member might be, unwittingly thrusts them both into the middle of a civil war between two rival causes.

The fight has begun and the race is on to find the other members before the Legion does. Can an easy-going Navy pilot and an alien assassin work together to reach the location of one of the capsules in the cutthroat Turbintan planet, or will Ash find himself served up to the Legion for the highest number of credits? Whatever happens, the war has begun with the first awakening of the resistance – a resistance that Ash has volunteered to fight with.

Capturing Cara: Dragon Lords of Valdier Book 2

Cara Truman is a pint-size pistol whose inquisitive nature has gotten her into trouble on more than one occasion. Her next adventure takes her further than she even expected when she ends up on a journey out of this world.

Trelon Reykill thought he had his hands full. A militant group of Curizans had captured his brother Zoran, he was busy trying to fortify the Valdier defenses against the Sarafin Warriors, and his dragon was roaring for him to find a mate. He was furious about the first, excited about the second, and pissed about the last. The last thing he expects to find on the primitive planet his brother has taken refuge on is his true mate.

Now, he has a whole new set of problems…capturing Cara long enough to make her his. His symbiosis loves her, his dragon wants her, and he can’t catch her. On top of all that, someone is trying to kill her.

His solution: Capture Cara and love her so well she will never want to escape him – if he can.

That is, until he meets a stubborn human female from the primitive planet his older brother sought refuge on. Now, all he can think about is how to get the female into his bed and under his control while staying in one piece.

When she is taken from him, Kelan will track Trisha to the ends of the universe and further because he knows one thing – she is his true mate and he will do anything; kill anyone, who tries to harm her.

A Day in Kassis

We are back with our travel series, “24-Hours On, In and Around Series”. This week, Narelle spent 24-hours on Kassis and gives you her quick visit guide to this extraordinary planet.

Planet: Kassis

Time: 1 day and night

Best Time To Go: April – August

Our Reporter: Narelle

Kassis is the major planet in the galaxy and is home to many fine Kassian warriors. The second the sun comes out, you’ll relish your time exploring the crystalline city of Kassis. The non-stop spectacle of crystals, evergreens and purple water will make it a struggle to continue onto the next planet on your Kassian Galaxy tour.

The palace is the starting point for many first time visitors to Kassis particularly since the Ladies have settled. There have been significant changes in Kassian culture since the prophesized warriors arrived. The common areas of the palace are now open to locals and tourists and a very popular place to visit, with many hoping to capture a glimpse of the Ladies of Kassis.

Rumor has that on on occasion you can see the three Ladies climbing over the balcony so they can mingle amongst the crowds. If you hear roaring, don’t panic, that will just be their husbands discovering that it’s hard to keep a good woman down.

The palace or House of Kassis, is home to the Royal family, and consists of four main buildings. It is built on a hill overlooking the city below and the entrance gates to the House of Kassis is a photographers dream. Huge and elaborate, these gates are carved with the history of Kassis. Remember to look up as there are quite a few surprises on the ceilings of the buildings and overhangs.

The South House or Common House is made up of conference rooms, dining rooms, a medical wing, additional guest rooms for dignitaries, and rooms for entertaining guests.

The North House is the Lead House and it belongs to Torak, the eldest son of the Leader of Kassis, and his wife, River. The East House belongs to Manota and is known as the Second House of Kassis. Manota and Jo reside here. The West House belongs to Jazin and Star and is known as the Third House of Kassis.

In the center between the houses is a large garden area with fountains and paths leading to each of the three private Houses and the Common House. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the three Ladies as they practice their high wire work on the beams and wire in the garden whilst Ajaska and his grandchildren look on.

Guided tours of the palace run daily and bookings are recommended.

If you like bling with your history, then make sure you head north along the Avenue Australis to the Statue of Ajaska, Leader of Kassis. This twenty foot high statue is made entirely of crystal and shoots out thousands of sparkles, almost as if it is alive.

Space travel is vital to the economic and cultural health of Kassis and its space port is high up on the must see places in Kassis. Pride of place in the space port is the Galaxy Quest which brought the Earthers to Kassis. The Galaxy Quest is now a museum and you can walk where the Prophesized Warriors first walked. There is even a side tour through the vents for those of an Earth size. This side tour books out very quickly so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment. It is restricted to height and width so check that you are small enough to go on the tour.

Be sure to allow plenty of time to be early for a good seat for the twice daily Prophesized Warriors show on the shuttle bay. This is quite the spectacle with actors re-enacting the great battle cry scene when Lady River claimed Torak and saved the alliance between the Kassians and Tearnats.

The Seeker, which brought the circus to Kassis, is also in the port although it is under refurbishment at the time this guide went to press.

Afternoons and evenings is the perfect time to walk along the boardwalk which borders the rippling purple River on one side and thriving markets, shops and restaurants on the other. This bustling area of Kassis is a must visit. The restauants offer a wide variety of fresh dishes from around the galaxy including Earth. At the markets you will find organic fruit, breads, jams, clothing, and shoes.

A must have is the fruity ice drink name Star’s Surprise in honor of Lady Star. It packs quite a punch so steady as she goes when you try Star’s Surprise lol.

If you are staying longer than 24-hours,  add these locations to your itinerary:

  • Council’s Assembly
  • Circus campus for Cirque de Magik, the most spectacular Circus to the Stars
  • Karazdin, the ancient city of knowledge
  • Geylur Prime II

Interview with Deborah Cooke

Author Spotlight – Deborah Cooke

Deborah Cooke

Deborah is one of my favorite authors. I love her Dragonfire series. If you haven’t read any of them, you don’t know what you are missing! I was having a major fangirl moment when I first met her at RTC in Ottawa this past spring. She is an incredibly talented authors. My sister first introduced me to her books and I couldn’t get enough of them.

Bestselling and award-winning author Deborah Cooke has published over fifty novels and novellas, including historical romances, fantasy romances, fantasy novels with romantic elements, paranormal romances, contemporary romances, urban fantasy romances, time travel romances and paranormal young adult novels.

She writes as herself, Deborah Cooke, as Claire Delacroix, and has written as Claire Cross. She is nationally bestselling, #1 Kindle Bestselling, KOBO Bestselling, as well as a USA Today and New York Times’ Bestselling Author. Her Claire Delacroix medieval romance, The Beauty, was her first book to land on the New York Times List of Bestselling Books.

The Beauty

She’s a member of Romance Writers of America and of Novelists Inc. Deborah thinks a lot about publishing and writing, and also knits too much.

Kiss of Fire

One kiss can change the course of destiny… When ace accountant Sara Keegan decides to settle down and run her quirky aunt’s New Age bookstore, she’s not looking for adventure. She doesn’t believe in fate or the magic of tarot cards, but when she’s saved from a vicious attack by a man who has the ability to turn into a fire-breathing dragon, she questions whether she’s losing her mind – or about to lose her heart.

Self-reliant loner Quinn Tyrrell has long been distrustful of his fellow Pyr. When he feels the firestorm that signals his destined mate, he’s determined to protect and possess Sara, regardless of the cost. Then Sara’s true destiny is revealed and Quinn realizes he must risk everything – even Sara’s love – to fulfill their entwined fates.
