Blurb:

Amelia ‘Runt’ Thomas’ life revolves around a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the most ruthless criminals in the world. She follows two codes: the code of hackers and her personal code of honor to bring down anyone who thinks they’re untouchable. She was on target until one fateful night when the touch of a strange man sends an unexpected shock wave through her. Now, the faint whispers in her head are growing louder and more annoying, distracting her from her mission.

Derik ‘Tag Krell Manok’s search for the mysterious woman who changed his life nearly two years before is finally over. As a Prime warrior from another world, he knew the moment he touched Amelia that she was his bond-mate—but she disappeared before he could whisk her away to safety. He is determined not to let that happen again, but he also knows that he needs to proceed with caution because Amelia is unlike any woman he has ever known before.

As their connection grows, so does Derik’s fear that he will be unable to keep Amelia safe from a man who is just as determined to find her and use her amazing talents for his own devious purposes. Find out what happens when an alien warrior, a determined AI named RITA, and a few other surprising twists come together to save a special woman named Runt!

Teaser/Excerpt:

          Runt turned to gaze out the window again. She was silent for a few seconds, unsure whether she wanted to share what she was thinking and feeling—even with RITA. Her arms tightened around her waist.
          “Nothing’s wrong. I’m just thinking,” she finally replied.
          “About Derik?” RITA inquired.
          Runt could feel her face contort in distaste. She was not going to admit that she had been thinking about Derik ‘Tag Krell Manok! A shiver of unease ran through her. That was usually a sign that it was time to disappear.
          The problem was doing it without RITA knowing. Cosmos Raines’ AI system, RITA, which stood for Really Intelligent Technical Assistant was as close to family as she had. It was that connection that made her reluctant to hurt RITA, even if she was only a computer program.
          She’s more than binary code, Runt thought looking at the soft concern in RITA’s glowing eyes.
          “I wish…,” she started to say before she shook her head and looked down at the floor.
          “What do you wish, Amelia?” RITA asked.
          Runt shook her head. “I’m going to go out for a bit. Now that Avery has been found and we know that Markham and Wright are dead, I don’t need to be here so much,” she stated, dropping her arms to her side and turning to grab her backpack off the floor near the chair and pulled it on her back.  
          “Amelia…,” RITA started to protest.
          Runt turned and looked at the holographic figure of the woman she had come to love. Her gaze followed RITA as the holographic image glided forward and lifted her hand to caress her cheek. She pulled back when RITA’s fingers passed through her. Sorrow and a sense of loneliness enveloped Runt. It has been so long since she’d felt the touch of another human that she almost forgot what it felt like. The last hug she’d had was from her mother.
          “Oh, sweetheart,” RITA said with regret.
          Runt shook her head. “I’ll be back later,” she murmured.
          She turned away and headed for the door to her apartment. This was not her world. She belonged in the recesses of the underground world of the hackers—out on the streets where people talked and the shadows listened. A place among those that knew about the darkness—not in a castle in the sky.

Thrust into a deadly game….

Avery Lennox has been called many names, but bond mate was never one of them. Her position as Chief Security Officer for Cosmos Raines guarantees that her life will never be boring—especially after her genius boss decides to open a portal between Earth and Baade, a world filled with an annoying, male-dominated species called Prime—but after meeting one particular alien, Avery decides to pursue him through the portal.

The trip to another world was…indescribable, but it’s when she returns home that Avery is in the most danger. Someone else is as fascinated with Core as she is, and believes Avery is the perfect bait.

From the moment Core Ta’Duran met Avery, he was captivated by the human woman who shields herself with an icy demeanor and a gun. Avery knows he wants a lifetime with her, and even though she is fighting their bond, she still appears on his world with a tantalizing offer: three days together with no questions, no ties, and no regrets.

When he follows her back to Earth, instead of finding Avery, he discovers a menacing message left for him: agree to be hunted or Avery dies.

Can Avery and Core turn the tables on the ruthless killer who wants to display Core as a trophy in his private collection, or will Core lose the most crucial battle of his life?

Teaser/Excerpt:

She’d lost count of the number of dreams she’d had of him over the last few months. She always woke up tangled in her Egyptian cotton sheets, aching so badly she was ready to scream. They were making it difficult to concentrate. She would be in the middle of reading a report or in a meeting with her team, only to realize that she had been staring into space, her mind focused on the huge, sexy Prime warrior.
It was time to nip this obsession in the bud. She was the Ice Queen. She could freeze a man’s balls off from a hundred paces. Her reaction to Core was simply primal attraction. They were both predators, how could she not want him?
Regardless of her desire, she would not allow her heart to become involved. Love created a vulnerability that could one day be revealed and exploited, no matter how hard a person tried to conceal it. No, once she satisfied her physical desire for Core, she could store the experience away and move on. It wasn’t like this was the first time she had been attracted to a man, and it wouldn’t be the last.

Update on Release Dates for Dust and Core’s Attack

Happy Sunday everyone!
A quick post to keep everyone up to date on what is going on. Over the last month I’ve been extremely tired. I’m pretty sure it is the heat and allergies as I have a sore throat and a cough that I can’t quite get rid of. I’ve been pushing myself to ignore it. While I was in Spokane it hit me hard when not one, but three people mentioned that I needed to be nicer to myself and listen to what my body has been telling me. I’m one of those that will go-go-go until I drop. Well, I’m stumbling at the moment.
So, long story short Dust and Core are going to be slightly late by a couple of weeks. One of the things I will never do is short-change a story for a deadline. I write as long as the characters talk. Dust is turning out to be an amazing story and nothing like I expected which makes it even more exciting. I know Core and Runt will do the same.
At the moment, I’m looking at releasing Dust now on July 10th and releasing both Core and Runt on July 31st. That may change depending on/if the exhaustion I’m feeling doesn’t pass. This time of year the heat, humidity and every blooming thing under the sun seems to have my name written all over it.
I hope you bear with me and aren’t too disappointed. I hate being late with anything and it drives me batty that my body is not listening to my head at the moment.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and thank you for being there as I work through this.
Hugs,
Susan
