Happy New Year, everyone! May 2017 be a wonderful year for you all.
So, who’s ready for some snippets? You will find mine below, of course, but don’t forget to check out the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook HERE for lots more great teasers. Authors post links to 6-line excerpts from WIPs, published works, or recommendations and I can tell you, I have found some wonderful books through Snippetting.
It’s now only just over 2 weeks until the release of my sci-fi romance, Regeneration, so there will be a couple more snippets from that before I find something else to (hopefully) entertain you with. Read on.
In the 23rd Century in the galaxy of Sigma Kappa, Kim Fortune was the first surviving experimental enhanced human—a regenerate. Aged fifteen, 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?
Last week’s snippet was a hot one, as Kim “relieved the tension” in his bunk room. Shortly after he wakes up, he goes to the galley for a drink of water, and guess who finds him there? A little more than 6 lines this time, just to tease you a bit extra.

“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.”
I put the cup down before I spilled the contents. Part of me wanted to free myself from the cage of his arms and hurry back to my room, but my longing for contact was stronger. Slowly I pushed my body away from the sink without moving my feet, until my back rested against Novak’s chest. His warmth soaked through my T-shirt, and the slow thud of his heart against my back quickened in time with mine. A glance over my shoulder showed me his upper body was uncovered, and when I felt his erection push against the base of my spine, I guessed it was restrained only by underwear. I smelled him, musky and aroused, and blood rushed to my groin. My dick filled, tenting my boxer briefs.
