A – Z | Judgment

Judgment (Time Is Eternity) by Mary Calmes

A J! We’re nearing the end of this A – Z Title Challenge. Now, I’m not a fan of time-travel stories, but I do enjoy some Mary Calmes when nothing else fits the bill, so I figured I’d be safe.

Thing is, I’m just not smart enough for time travel. Here we have Jeritt Troy and his husband Frost Ramsey, both are time-travelling cops, sort of. It’s your usual Clames pairing, the I-CAN’T-LIVE-WITHOUT-YOU-EVEN-FOR-A-SECOND connection between the two, and one of them will be growling. Now, don’t misunderstand me, I like growling.

Before Jeritt was partnered up with Frost, he was working with another man who also is/was his best friend. And here is where I start getting lost. The best friend is either a good, nice best friend or a villain, and he’s in 2012, and 2006, while Jeritt is in 4510, and later in the other years too, at the same time as his old self/current self/future self…or something.

One version of him is separated from his husband, the other is not, and I love the longing the poor version who ends up husband-less goes through, but for the most part, I was confused LOL.

Judgment - Mary CalmesJeritt Troy is a Scourge, a guardian tasked with patrolling cracks in time and righting the unspoken wrongs in history. His next task is a killer-not just for him, but for his husband and partner, Frost Ramsey, because Jeritt’s not just tracking a bad guy; he’s tracking his previous partner-his best friend. Brekin Creed is as deadly as he’s ever been, and when Jeritt finds himself both abandoned and stranded in time, he has only a handful of years to figure out what went wrong with Brekin and, in doing so, save Frost’s life. Is there time enough for Jeritt to save Frost, or will he be locked in the judgment of his mistakes for eternity?

A – Z | Roaming Canisters

Roaming Canisters by Adrian Fridge

An R! Not many letters left now before I’m done with my A-Z Title Challenge. And this time I made sure I needed an R before I started reading LOL.

I was in the mood for some sci-fi, but I wanted something short, so I took a chance.  I actually read the blurb this time, I usually don’t, but I ended up with a story I didn’t see coming anyway.

We have a guy on his way to mars. He’s suddenly hijacked by aliens and is put through some medical exams. He learns the aliens have been around us for a long time, but have blocked us from seeing them.

It’s not too bad, they might look a bit like lizards, but Dr. Waters still has the hots for his captor.

I liked it! We have humans and aliens and the difference between them, and then there is a war looming. A nice, short sci-fi story.

Roaming CanistersDr. Eugene Waters is the engineer on board the first trip to settle Mars. The success of the mission is jeopardized when his ship is hijacked by an alien station. Thus the future of mankind is questioned, as is the future of Water’s sex life.

Sci-Fi and Fantasy for the Great Pause

The Great Pause

For the Great Pause – it has a certain ring to it, does it not?

To help us all get through this time, J. Scott Coatsworth put together a Sci-Fi and Fantasy Giveaway over at Prolific Works. It’s a giveaway with everything from Hard Sci-Fi to Romance, with all colours and orientations and genders (or lack thereof) – in other words, there should be something for everyone.

It Doesn’t Translate is my contribution.  It’s a little Sci-Fi since it takes place in space, but mostly it’s romance. You’ll find an excerpt here.

The giveaway runs from May 15th to June 15th, so it’s already started, and you can grab all the books here!


It Doesn't Translate

Noir Kioko had only ever seen one human before his undercover work brought him to the diner at the Luna Terminal, and that was at a distance. Humans are rare, most of them disappear without a trace, and he hopes hanging around the restaurant will give him a lead on the smuggling ring he’s investigating. There was no way he could’ve known the human would turn out to be his mate, and no way he can let it show without putting his mate in danger and possibly jeopardising his mission.

Max Welch is the proud owner of the only restaurant within a light year’s distance. He left Earth four years ago to create a better life for himself, but he hadn’t considered the possibility of scary alien pirates making his restaurant their favourite hangout spot. As a measly human there isn’t much he can do about it, but as one of the pirates starts coming by almost every day he has to come up with something before he loses all his customers. That the giant cat man is rather nice to look at changes nothing.

When rumours of another human arriving at the space station start to circulate, Noir’s species trafficking infiltrate and observe only mission may need a revamp. But will Noir be able to protect his mate and another one of his rare species?
