About The Book:

A demon waiting to die…

An outcast reviled for his discolored skin and rumors of black magic, Keirlan de
Corizi sees no hope for redemption. Imprisoned beneath the palace that was once
his home, the legendary ‘Blue Demon of Adalucian’ waits for death to finally
free him of his curse. But salvation comes in an unexpected guise.

A woman determined to save him.

Able to cross space and time with a wave of her hand, Tarquin Secker has spent
eternity on a hopeless quest. Drawn by a compulsion she can’t explain, she
risks her apparent immortality to save Keir, and offers him sanctuary on her
home-world, Lyagnius. But Quin has secrets of her own.

When Keir mistakenly unleashes the dormant alien powers within him and earns exile
from Lyagnius, Quin chooses to stand by him. Can he master his newfound
abilities in time to save Quin from the darkness that seeks to possess her?

Spotlight: Unbound Instinct (Sci-Fi Romance)


January 19, 2015,

Unbound Instinct is a side-story in the Corwint Central Agent Files series. Although it takes place on the Corwint timeline between Book 2: Whispers From Exile and Book 3: Tracing The Stars, it can be read as a stand-alone science fiction romance story.

amaznButton

Side-Story-Vex-smallVex was born into servitude, just one of the thousands of Trexen who had been collared and trained into submission by the Xen’dari Empire. An unexpected turn of events offers him the chance for freedom, but freedom comes with its own challenges. Trexen were taught to fear it and fear themselves. Without the Xen’dari collar around his neck or a Master to tell him what to do and how to do it, Vex is faced with having to make his own choices while fighting against the instinctual carnal nature of his Trexen heritage.

Crissadra is the last of her kind, enslaved by a man who uses her charms to subdue the crowds of his tavern and heal the wounds of his gang who attack the territories surrounding their outpost. When Vex steps into her world and kidnaps her into freedom, she must decide if she will accept it or if she will run from it and him.

Together, they will search for a grasp of freedom, an acceptance of themselves and an understanding of each other.

Excerpt:

An insistent beep from the lift’s navigation system brought Vex’s thoughts back to the present. Moving his gaze away from the cargo pod in the back seat, he turned his chair around to face front and disabled the beeping alert informing him that he had arrived at his destination. Desolate, rocky fields gave way to a rugged outcropping of sharply cut peaks and the dusty path his lift traveled became cluttered with rounded boulders that jutted against the electro-magnetic stabilizers. The lift jostled hard and a compressed whimper sounded through the air vent of the cargo pod. Continue reading

Rating: I loved it  (?)

Review

Spark Rising is a post-apocalyptic Earth, dystopian tale with a few unique elements that made for a great story. Well written, well edited and all around an enjoyable read, the book has many aspects that made me love it. I think this book would be a good read for any fan of science fiction, dystopian, post-apocalyptic or science fiction romance stories, so it has a wide range of appeal. There were only a few, mostly minor, issues that I ran into which kept me, personally, from reaching the coveted ‘OMG More!’ moment.
