Hey, Snippetteers! Happy weekend.
Welcome to another week of Rainbow Snippets, where authors post links to 6-line teasers from LGBTQI WIPs, published works, or recommendations. Feel feel to join the group, and don’t forget to check out the other works HERE.
I have more from Regeneration, my upcoming sci-fi romance. Lots more this week too. I’ve written the “official” blurb, and release is set for January 15, 2017! PLUS… I have a cover. I’m not doing my cover reveal until mid-December, but I’m letting all you snippetteers have a sneaky-peak on my blog here. Let me know what you think. After asking general opinions, weighing up the options myself, and getting a couple of drafts done, I decided a non-face cover suits this book much better. The pictures I found of my MC, Kim, just didn’t do it for me. So I hope you like it. Read on!
In the 23rd Century in the galaxy of Sigma Kappa, Kim Fortune was the first surviving experimental enhanced human—a regenerate. Aged 15, he escaped the lab and years later, his failings as a regenerate and the suspicion of regular humans, leave him lonely and lacking in self-worth. Stranded on an abandoned planet, the arrival of a stricken ship and its crew give him hope that he may finally find what he always longed for—love.
Christian Novak is a successful regenerate with all the intended attributes—including lack of human emotion. Despite their immediate attraction to each other, Kim’s failing confidence, and Christian’s inability to empathize are a recipe for disaster. But war, imprisonment, and danger throw them together, and after each saves the other’s life, their feelings begin to change.
Can a seemingly unsuitable pair ever find love, or is a future together destined to fail?
Kim goes to the galley to get water in the middle of the night…
Suddenly, I sensed a presence behind me, and the heat coming off his body warmed my back. His hands appeared either side of me and he placed them on the edge of the sink, trapping me there, although he didn’t touch me at all. The hair on the back of my neck rose and my pulse quickened. A spark of lust shivered through me, and my dick twitched.
“We must stop meeting like this,” Novak said huskily.
“What are you doing here?” The words came out as a whisper.
“I’m hungry. I didn’t eat earlier.” Hot breath fanned my cheek as he spoke.
And there’s more…
I’m posting the first chapter of Regeneration in several parts in the Wednesday Briefs group, so if you want to read it in full, the links to the first four parts are below – one more week to go.
And finally… the cover.
