Star Strauss has always been a fighter. From the time she was born prematurely to her life on the road as a circus performer. She has never let her small stature keep her from achieving her dreams. She is one of the best aerial performers in the world. Her love of being up high and flying free has helped her overcome the challenges she faces when she is on the ground. Only her circus family, her sister, and her best friend have ever really understood her need for freedom. Her life changes when she finds herself on a distant world where every creature seems to tower over her.
Jazin Ja Kel Coradon is the third son of the ruling House of Kassis. He is known not only for his skills as a fierce warrior but for his knowledge of communication, security, and weapons systems. This knowledge has increased the effectiveness of the Kassis defenses protecting their world from attack from a new group of rebels who threaten their very existence. He will fight until his last breath to protect his people.
His life changes when he meets a tiny creature who is unlike anything he has ever seen. She is tiny, delicate, and beautiful. The problem is she is also the strongest, most stubborn female he has ever met. She refuses to do what he tells her, she defies him at every turn, and doesn’t seem to understand that all he wants to do is protect her. If he could just get her to stay in the nice safe bubble he has created for her, his life would be so much simpler!
Writing on Jaguin’s Love is going well and I’m really liking how the story is going. It is turning out different (in a good way) than I was expecting. Sara is really a unique character.
As for a release date, I am looking at an end-May release.
Jaguin’s Love book cover has had an update and here it is:
What do you think of the video component to the book cover? It really catches your eye, don’t you think?!
Who is up for a teaser? Here is an unedited one for you:
Jaguin started forward, his gaze automatically moving to where the woman lay silently on the bed. He could see the thick bands of gold on her neck and wrists. His symbiot sat on the far side of the bed, its head resting on the pristine white sheets. Small threads of gold wove outward, replacing the narrow ribbons still moving over her body.
“It is a good thing you are her mate,” Tantor replied in a quiet voice, walking past the two beds toward the office area to the left. “She would not have survived if not for your symbiot’s ability to heal her. Our medical advancements are far greater than most, but nothing can heal the body the way a symbiot can.”
“What of the other woman?” Gunner asked with a frown. “She is not mated.”
“She had a concussion, as well as other injuries,” Tantor admitted with a shake of his head. “I was able to heal most, but not even our symbiots can heal a broken mind or soul. The female was awake, but she never spoke or responded. It was as if only her body were here, nothing else. I only have the evidence of what was done to the females on a physical level and can guess what was done to them on a mental one. Time will tell if they will survive.”
“The one has to,” Jaguin retorted, glancing through the clear glass back at where his mate lay. “She… She is mine.”
Tantor’s gaze followed Jaguin’s to the peaceful face. “I know,” he murmured. “You will need to be patient, Jaguin, until she wakes, I can only guess at what damage may have been done to her mind.”
Jaguin’s gaze remained locked on the young woman’s face. He didn’t even know what to call her, just his mate. She looked like a pale statue. Her breathing so slight that he could barely see her chest rising and falling. His symbiot moved closer, nudging one slender arm. Hope and determination flared inside him when her arm slid over the golden head. He knew that it had been the movement of his symbiot that caused her arm to move, but not her fingers. Warmth flooded him when the woman’s fingers curled ever so slightly into the silky smooth body of his symbiot.
“I will wait however long it takes,” Jaguin replied, feeling the rightness of his words.
I recently started doing author videos for each of my stories as I thought it might be good to share with everyone why I write the stories and to give a little behind the scenes look of how they came about. Nothing long and drawn out, but a little insight into how the worlds came to be. Your feedback shows that it was the right decision!
Mind you, it took 17 tries before I recorded one without stumbling too badly. I was making faces and doing the blah, blah, blah thing. When I am braver and have done a few more videos, I’ll have to post all the bloopers I made! (Some of them are really good! LOL)
I think you will love Edna and Christoff’s story! I dedicated it to Dulcie and Jose (both are in their 80’s). I truly believe love can come when you least expect it and that it is just as real for older couples as it is for the younger. Perhaps more so in many ways because we can appreciate how fortunate we are when we are given another chance to find it.
I cried buckets while writing The Old Dragon of the Mountain’s Christmas, but I also laughed out loud. You will need a big box of tissues for this story, but I promise, it will leave you smiling. Christoff definitely deserves his HEA!
I loved Christoff and Edna’s story. Just think what can happen when you see a Dragon fly!
Adventure that takes you to new worlds
