Winner of the Romance Writers of Australia 2015 Romantic Novella of the Year: A woman hiding a powerful secret and the tenacious marshal out to protect her.
Fortune teller Relda Dela-Cruz is a woman with a secret. One she'll do anything to conceal. She hides in plain sight on the market world of Souk, content with running her profitable fortune-telling business and never letting anyone too close. But when assailants attack her in pursuit of a powerful artifact, Relda collides with the city's handsome, new marshal. A man who leaves no stone unturned and no secret covered.
War has left former Galactic Special Forces Captain Hunt Calder tired and empty, but one look at sexy Relda--with her wild curls and lush curves--brings him back to life. When she's threatened over the mysterious Trojan Moon, Hunt will let nothing stop him from protecting her. Even Relda herself.
As they face alien attackers and killer droids, Relda can't resist her burning attraction to Hunt. But she knows he's the most dangerous threat of all, because he doesn't just want her body, he wants her trust and her secret, too. A secret with the power to destroy Hunt and Relda, the city, even the planet itself.Note to readers:
This novella contains a lot of action (think kidnapping aliens, killer droids and starship crashes), one valuable treasure (yes, diamonds are involved) and a hot romance (lots of sexy times between a beautiful fortune teller and a hard-bodied marshal). If you like it fast, fun and sexy, this is for you!
Includes preview of Book 5 of the Phoenix Adventures series, Beyond Galaxy's Edge.Q & A with the AuthorQ - How would you describe the Phoenix Adventures series?
A - Treasure hunters in space! A few readers have said it's like Indiana Jones set far into the future. All the books in the series are fast, fun thrill-ride treasure hunts for old Earth artifacts. There is lots of action, adventure, space opera, and of course, romance. I'm thrilled the books in the series have won so many awards from a SFR Galaxy Award for Most Fun New Series to a Prism Award for Best Futuristic Romance (On a Rogue Planet) to the Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Novella of the Year (Beneath A Trojan Moon).Q - Why did you want to write the series?
A - I love action, adventure and romance. And I love science fiction romance and all the endless possibilities. Combine all that with a fascination with ancient artifacts and the Phoenix Adventures were born. I really wanted to capture what the expeditions of old must have felt like - trekking through jungles or desert sands and stumbling across crumbling ruins. Since all the good stuff has been found nowadays, I looked to the future and jetted off into space.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - All the Phoenix Adventures books are stand-alone adventures - many readers have entered the series with later books in the series. However, characters from the early stories do appear in later books, so I think it adds something to the reading experience to read them in order. Here's the order I suggest:
- Among Galactic Ruins (prequel)
- At Star's End
- In the Devil's Nebula
- On a Rogue Planet
- Beneath a Trojan Moon (novella)
- Beyond Galaxy's Edge
- On a Cyborg Planet (novella)
- Return to Dark Earth
- On a Barbarian World
- Lost in Barbarian Space
- Through Uncharted Space
- Beyond Distant Stars (coming soon)
