Sienna is lost…

With almost all of her guys missing and Artemis crippled, Sienna finds herself in a show down with Evander Corporation, fighting for all of their lives. But she wasn’t born to be a victim, she was born to lead. If saving the men she loves costs her life, it’s a price she’s willing to pay.

They’ve all been trapped in darkness…

The Super Soldiers who adore her, the pilot who is crazy for her and the doctor who won’t give up on her will be tested to their limits and push the boundaries to save Sienna not only from Evander but from the diseases threatening to ravage her body. They will take a chance to roll the dice with a little help from several familiar faces that the Artemis has been the site of miracles before. She can be again.

In the epic conclusion of Wings of Artemis, Sienna must take her life and her fate in her own hands and become the arrow that shoots through the heart of her enemies, rescues her men, and changes the future of the universe forever.

*PLEASE NOTE*
This is a 12 novel, 2 novella series for a total of 14 books. Don’t start with this one.

Not only is this the end of Sienna’s story it’s also the series conclusion.

When we left Sienna in Lost Star, her five super-soldiers were missing and with Trent and Wade she was fleeing the planet. A last message from Kellen has them ditching their tablets, as he confirms they had be taken by Evander.

When Evander manages to get a tracking beam on them to bring their ship on board, Wade thinks fast and hides Trent from their detection. Now it’s up to Sienna and Trent to free Corbin, Devil, Kellan, Blaze and Anders as well as find the cure for her.

A BOOM is the start of it all and in no time plans are being made. A journey to The Farm has us reuniting with everyone, plans that were made go totally astray, a surprise solution, and once again The Artemis plays a major roll.

An action-packed, suspenseful and very emotional conclusion to this awesome series; BRAVO!

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance.

Return to the Darkness – The Coveted Book 3 By Rebecca Royce and Ripley Proserpina


Return to the Darkness
The Coveted Book 3

And they say you can never go home again…

When the past tries to rewrite itself, Lacey has to return to the town where the darkness was born. Together with her guys, she’ll face the troubled present, and try to secure her future. But she never could have foreseen that the cost to her and the men she loves would be so impossibly high.

To save them all, Lacey will have to embrace who she is, and trust her guys—no matter how they might change.

After a decade, it’s time to come home. And this time, Lacey, Oliver, Colton, Thorn, and Aaron will destroy anything that threatens it.

If you haven’t read the other two books, stop, go read them first!

This book starts right where we left off in Alaska with Lacey and her guys, Oliver, Thorn, Colton and Aaron. They are preparing to return to New Mexico where it all began. Now settling in they need to decide where to go first. The town is very different now that the darkness is gone, more prosperous.

This is a favorite scene.

I couldn’t remember the last time I’d worn a bathing suit. I was lucky I even had one. Clad in my black bikini, I sat in the hot tub. The jets loosened my back as we all sat around like it was the most normal thing in the world.

“Do you guys do this a lot?” I looked at each of them as I asked the question.

Oliver sat with his eyes closed across from me. Thorn was next to him, a bottle of water in one hand. Aaron was next to me on my right. He stared off in the distance, maybe admiring the view. I didn’t let myself look. The last thing I wanted was to start to think things around here were pretty. I couldn’t start to like it. No matter how nice it had become.

Colton wrapped his foot around my own. He had a bead of sweat on his face that I watched, transfixed, as it ran down his cheek.

“First time. We don’t hang around in hot tubs. I swear.”

Oliver lifted his head. “I think we’re only doing this because you have that bikini on. I mean… please don’t wear that in public. I don’t mind sharing with all of them, but I will have to gouge out the eyes of anyone else who looks at you.”

Aaron laughed. “Oh no. I’m going to disagree with my brother. Wear it. Let everyone see what belongs to us.”

I supposed I should have said or thought something like ‘I wear what I want, and my choice of swimwear has nothing to do with your opinion about my body.’ But that wasn’t what I thought or said when heat hit my cheeks. I fucking loved that they were reacting to my appearance.

Colton leaned his head on mine. “I’d rather she be sitting in here naked. What do you say, Lacey? Willing to take it off and let us see you naked in the bubbles?”

I shook my head fast. “What if someone showed up? This is not a town I let my guard down in, ever. I won’t be caught naked outside. No matter the circumstances.”

Thorn nodded. “Maybe that’ll change in a couple of days. We’re fenced in back here. No one is getting in here that we don’t want here. Okay. So what do we do now, Chees? Your father is here somewhere, and he isn’t going to magically appear in front of us. Or maybe he will. Things like that happen around us.”

I thought back to the last time I saw Ray Chee. It had been a while since I’d had to lucid dream in order to kill Mara. “We closed all those doors.” What if I had locked him inside?

“I know where your mind has gone,” Aaron said, “but he physically left my mom after your dream. He’s alive and out there somewhere. The place to start would be in your old neighborhood.”

Despite the warm jets and being surrounded by the people I loved, a chill ran down my spine. “I don’t want to go back there.”

“You don’t have to,” Oliver assured me. He leaned forward and grasped my hand. With a gentle tug, he pulled me onto his lap and wrapped his arms around me.

“I should have done that,” Aaron grumbled. “Had you right next to me.”

I leaned my head on his brother’s chest, soaking in his warmth. When he spoke, his chest rumbled with the sound. “I think it’s best if Aaron and I go to check out the old riverbed and trailer park. We know how our father works, and if there’s evidence to be found, we’ll find it.”

Colton moved his foot from mine and edged forward. “I’m an archaeologist. I know how to examine a site. I could go for you.”

Oliver’s entire body tensed. I glanced up at him, taking in the set of his jaw and the way he pressed his lips together. It hit me. He didn’t want to go either. Like me, this trip home was stirring up all kinds of issues. For me, it was what this town had done to me. But for Oliver, it was what his dad had done to him.

“Is your mom here?” I asked.

At my question, he startled and squeezed me again. “Yeah. I couldn’t make her stay away. She’s just as stubborn as the old man. I half-expected Kel to show up, too, but she’s got a bunch of big events at her vineyard, and I promised after the last time, she wouldn’t have to leave her life to rescue our parents.”

Hmm. There seemed to be a story there. Peering at Aaron, I caught the slight shake of his head. I guessed that was a story for another time.

The guys’ bravery took me down a few pegs. Here they were, facing their issues, and all I wanted to do was hide my head under my pillow. “I’ll go with you.”

“Uh-uh.” Oliver was quick to respond. His denial was echoed by the others, but tempered a little by Aaron’s, “Not yet.”

“Why not?” I asked. I hated that I was a little relieved to be given an out. Not that I wouldn’t take it, but I should probably know why I got one when no one else did. A horrible thought occurred to me. “Do you think he’s awake?” I didn’t even want to say his name, afraid that here, so close to where he slept, his name on my lips would rouse him.

“Absolutely not,” Colton answered.

Shifting, I placed myself between Oliver’s legs so I could see all of them. Thorn was shaking his head. “No, Lace. You knocked him out. He’s not getting up any time soon.”

“It’s been a decade,” I reminded him. “We don’t know how long my darkness will keep him wherever he is.”

“Can we agree not to call it your darkness?” Aaron shook his head. “It’s something in you, Lacey, but it’s more like your abilities based on a genetic heritage. Maybe you and Thorn could use his considerable talents to find information on everything and figure out what those abilities are. That could be a very useful thing for us to know going forward. Once we leave here, we can set up lives. If we get called to do other paranormal-type things, you could have a real sense of what you can do.”

I wouldn’t mind some clarity, but I was pretty sure Aaron was still dismissing the fact that for whatever the reason, I was pretty dark inside. Whether that was my upbringing, some facet of the fae an ancestor had made a baby with, or just a Lacey thing, I didn’t know. I didn’t know if it mattered.

The worst part of all of this is that Ray Chee wanted to be the one who took care of Erdig, instead he was upstaged by a teenager. Now he’s changing the past which totally screws up everything as Lacey shows up in a time where she’s dead.

Plenty of suspense and intrigue with hold your breath moments, time travel and plenty of heat.

An awesome conclusion to this trilogy! I can’t wait to see what Rebecca and Ripley will concoct next!

Lost Star – Wings of Artemis Book 11 By Rebecca Royce


Lost Star
Wings Of Artemis Book 11
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Evander wants her…

Trapped in stasis, Sienna reaches out to her caretakers with her mind. Awakened to the war, she must confront not only why the remains of the distant corporation wants her but her own chances at survival with the viruses riddling her system. The new crew of the Artemis will do anything to keep her safe though they long to defeat the overlords who have wreaked so much havoc.

They will do anything to protect her…

Super Soldiers Blaze, Anders, Corbin, and Kellan tease her with their blunt attitudes and artless charm. Human doctor Wade figured out the solution to hold the viruses at bay and wake the siren whose voice sustains him. Trenton, the wickedly talented human pilot, will use every skill he has to keep Artemis in fighting form. The ancient ship has her work cut out for her when a seventh soul inserts himself into their crew, stealing Sienna and possibly her heart.

As the Wings of Artemis races to its epic conclusion, Sienna will have to trust her heart and these men to save the galaxy or die in the attempt.

PLEASE NOTE:
This is the 11th novel in a science fiction romance series. Although every odd numbered book starts a new arc in the series, with brand new characters as the leads, the story does progress from book to book. The author strongly suggests you do not start at book 11. There will be one more book in this series and then the series will officially be completed.

Sienna has been in stasis for a long time. The viruses Evander injected with have no cure, at least none available to the people protecting her. Even more puzzling is the mystery as to why Evander wants her. Wade has taken on being her doctor as they flee Earth with Trenton and the super soldiers Blaze, Anders, Corbin, and Kellan as protection.

With the help of others, Wade is able to design a device similar to Avery’s delivering medication to keep the viruses at bay. As this book opens they are waking her, hoping to find the answers to at least some of the puzzle.

Playing hide and seek with Evander is getting them nowhere and knowing they’d need supplies they head to the reopened Mars Station. There things take quite the interesting twist with a new journey through the dark planets and plenty of action.

Sienna has some interesting powers and they can only imagine what Evander would do if they could replicate it. Stopping Evander is something everyone wants but they need someplace defendable to do it.

I loved seeing everyone again. I know the next book is the last in the series so with all the action we’ve seen so far, the laughter and tears, even the super soldiers falling in love. Plus there’s all that sizzling heat from the dynamic of reverse harem. I both look forward and dread the end.

This series is so very awesome, with strong women, strong men, the desire to live in peace and the determination to make it so.

Rising Tides – Wings of Artemis Book 10 By Rebecca Royce

An embrace can offer comfort…

Amber Delacroix Chen reunited with her husbands only to have to send them off to war. Now a doctor, she works tirelessly to patch up the wounded to send them back to the front lines while protecting the people at the heart of the Chen Empire. She delivers babies, tends to the injured, the lost, and even her fellow physicians, everyone—except herself. Thankfully, she has her very own Z Warriors who will lay down their lives to protect her. After years of separation, anxiety, and pain, she is finally herself and the love she and her husbands share sustains her. In so many ways, Amber’s life is perfect, if only her husbands were with her.

An embrace can offer hope…

For their part, Amari, Shane, and Hunter are in the thick of the war with Evander. It’s a fight to save their planet, their empire, their way of life…and their wife. Time together is a precious commodity and fleeting seconds of passion must sustain them. The tide is rising and there is nothing they won’t do to win this war…but when enemies old and new come for them, there is nothing the Chens won’t do to save each other.

Their embrace can save them all…

This book opens with the men still off fighting Evander and the Chen empire being attacked regularly. Waverly is labor and Amber, now Dr. Chen, will be delivering the child. I love babies and apparently so to the Zansi ‘Z’ Warriors. Once Ari joins Waverly after the birth, Amber leaves the room to find her fifteen Z warriors waiting outside the door for news of the the mother and child.

While most of the women here have seen at least one of their husbands, Amber hasn’t seen hers since they left. With Evander blocking signals she hasn’t heard their voice or  even received a message. She’s also been neglecting her treatments as the med machines have been needed for others far more critical. It’s Wade who reminds her that she has to take care of herself to take care of others.

With that behind her she is recovering from the treatment when she gets a very nice surprise.

This is a favorite scene.

A knock sounded and I woke up, groggy and disoriented. I hadn’t slept long enough. If something was very wrong, I was going to have to medicate myself awake to replace the med machine drugs still warping my system.

The knock again.

“Yes. Come.” I pulled the blanket to my chin.

Brenden rushed in. “Dr. Chen.”

“What’s wrong? How bad is it?” I got to my knees. “I need a minute to pull myself together.”

He shook his head fast “Nothing bad. I thought you should know right away. Sorry, it’s just that Master Shane is here.”

Here? That didn’t make any sense. “Is he hurt?” I scrambled up. “I’m coming. Tell Wade I’m going to dose and be right there.”

“Dose with what? No, I’m not hurt.” Shane walked into the room. He patted Brenden on the shoulder. “I got this.”

The Z Warrior nodded before he exited the room, closing the door behind him. My breath caught in my throat, and I thought I might have squealed for a second before I covered my mouth. I wasn’t reacting to Shane being back in what probably would have been deemed a formal, correct manner. I wasn’t sure what I was doing.

I drank in his dear face. He looked good, healthy but tired. There were dark circles under his eyes, but that was true for all of us these days. His hair had gotten a little longer, a little messy looking. It was adorable. His shoulders were still broad, the shine to his hair remained the same, he hadn’t… lost any limbs.

He moved because I couldn’t, taking me in his arms so gently I couldn’t help my cry.

“Hello there, gorgeous.” His strong arms were steady. Shane smelled right. I shook. “I think you missed me.”

I lifted my head. “I’m so glad to see your face.”

He wiped the tears trailing down my cheeks with his thumbs. “I’m so glad to see your face, too. What were you going to dose yourself with?”

“Oh, doesn’t matter.” I kissed him because I could. His lips were soft—they always were with Shane—and reveled in the feeling of the slight bite of his whiskers against my face. He kissed me back, picking me up so I could wrap my arms around his neck and my legs around his waist. I kissed and kissed and kissed him. I couldn’t stop. Too many months without him, worrying he was dead whenever I let myself even think along those lines, and now the surprise of his sudden arrival undid me.

He laid me down on the bed as he finally pulled his mouth from mine. “Is this an okay time in the month for us to be doing this? I tried to keep track in my head of when your treatments should be. I thought about you every free second so that was one of the things I charted in my mind. But then we had a couple of weeks that blended into days because of the battles and I think I might have lost it. Just because I’m here doesn’t mean you have to be in pain.”

I kissed his nose. “I had a treatment about eight hours ago. I missed some, moved some. It’s not always convenient for me to have them done. Other people need help more than me.”

He scrunched up his face. “Then you should be sleeping. I wondered why Brenden took off like a bat out of hell to come down here. He must have wanted to give you a second to try to rouse. I thought you might be hurt and no one told me. I chased after him. None of it was well done.”

I sat up, so close to him that our heads almost banged. “I don’t want to sleep.”

“Okay.” He kissed me lightly on the lips and then smiled at me. “Amber, you can’t know how it feels to see you right now. Some nights I wondered if I’d dreamed that you were still alive.”

Our mouths fused together again. I pulled at his shirt, wanting to feel his skin beneath my fingers. He laughed as I got his shirt tangled over his head before I threw it aside. Applesauce ran into the corner to avoid being hit.

“Remind me I have to say hi to the cat when we’re done. He deserves a hello of his own.”

Shane was so sweet, all that kindness hidden beneath his serious exterior. I put my hand on his heart. It beat strongly beneath the pads of my fingers. I counted the beats. One. Two. Three. Four.

“Are you taking my pulse?” He nuzzled my neck. “Here’s a hint. Right now it’s racing. After I make love to my wife, it will regulate again and then probably slow when I take you in my arms to sleep for the night.”

I pushed back to grin at him. “I’m a doctor now. Officially.”

“Really?” The smile that lit his face would forever be in my memory. “That is such great news. I missed it. Fuck. Congratulations.”

I wanted to hear all his stories, all the things happening to him, but I also wanted to make love to him, and he wanted me, too.

Shane’s visit wouldn’t be a long one, but it was enough to brighten Amber’s mood even in these trying times.

Let me say here, I cried a lot, you will need plenty of tissues for this book. I also laughed, enjoyed the babies born and I really can’t say anything else without giving away the story.

As much as I love all of the characters in these books, Amber, Amari, Hunter and Shane have a special place in my heart. This book is full of surprises and some trials for all of them.

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Prison Princess – Paranormal Prison By CoraLee June & Rebecca Royce


The Paranormal Prison Series is a Multi-Author experience within the same prison, Nightmare Penitentiary aka NP. The characters are different but the venue is the same. A wonderful way to discover new Authors.

Imprisoned, tormented and forgotten…

I’ve never seen the outside of these four walls. I was born in Nightmare Penitentiary, and I’ll probably die here too.

Or so I thought.

When an assassin captures me, I realize I’m far more powerful than anyone knows. I’m a princess. A Druid. The last of my kind. I command the earth and the moon speaks to me. There is royal blood running through these veins.

Tasked with bringing me back to my family, my captor is stuck by my side. The more time we spend together, the more I learn about the birthright stolen from me and the enemy who stole it. And the longer I’m with my assassin, the more my heart softens.

I never imagined that a harsh, lonely man would bring help. I never thought that leaving Nightmare would put me on a much different path. A path full of hope. Of freedom. Of love. A path that leads to accepting my birthright, with an assassin by my side.

But the future is blurry. There are two roads. One leads to happiness—to love. The other leads to demise. And even I can’t see which one wins.

Layne grew up in Nightmare Penitentiary, she doesn’t know her mother and had several woman play that role as she grew up. Inmates that received a reduced sentence for that care.

Her routine was the same every day and she marked her days by meals and her years by visits from the warden. Never allowed out, bathing was during daylight, she was denied the moon except for once and now she craves it again.

Hired by her parents Cypress shows up just as she’s trying to stand in the moonlight, then all the fun begins.

A treacherous journey as Layne learns a bit about her heritage, but even scarier, her powers, which now that she is free are ramping up.

Plenty of intrigue, combined with battles, and an interesting reunion with her parents, to her love for Cypress.

I loved the build up of everything in this book, from the powers to the romance a delightful read.

I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into developing real, raw, and relatable characters.

I like flawed and beautiful things.

I’m a Texas State University English Major, and my wild affair with literature began at a young age. I’ve always stayed up past my bedtime to read the stories your mother wouldn’t approve of.

I love angst. I love to crack open a book and borrow the character’s emotions for a bit. It’s how I approach writing, too.

I live in Dallas, Tx with my husband and two beautiful, headstrong daughters. I enjoy long walks through the ice cream aisle at my local grocery store and listening to gangster rap in my minivan.

Voices in the Darkness – The Coveted Book 2 by Rebecca Royce & Ripley Proserpina


Voices in the Darkness
The Coveted Book 2
By
Rebecca Royce
&
Ripley Proserpina

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

There’s a darkness within her
and its voice taunts her…

It’s been ten years since Lacey Madison fled New Mexico and everyone she cared about to keep them safe. She’s built a new life with a new name in the frozen north, putting her investigative skills and intuitive senses to work. But when an accident lands her in the hospital, she admits all the things she’s kept buried down deep—like her real name, and wanting four boys who’d probably forgotten her…

And suddenly, everything changes. Thorn, Colton, Aaron, and Oliver come looking for her just as the voices in the darkness begin to cry out.

And it turns out—it doesn’t matter how far Lacey runs, evil will always find her.

It’s been ten years since Lacey fled New Mexico and landed in Alaska. She quite literally fell into a man who fast became a friend, father figure and her boss.

As a PI she knew things could get a bit dangerous but sliding off an ice covered road fleeing from an adulterer certainly wasn’t in her plans. Neither was telling the hospital where she landed her real name.

The biggest surprise comes when her past catches up with her present in the form of Oliver Chee. He’s alone for the moment, he’s confirming it’s really her. Now the others are on their way.

It’s shortly after Oliver arrives that a ghost show up IN Lacey’s home, that’s never happened before and she’s freaking out a bit. It’s while they’re setting a circle of protection with lavender and salt that Colton and Aaron arrive.

This is a favorite scene.

Shaking my head, I hurried through the snow back to the front of the house. If one circle of protection was good, a double layer would be better.

It was slippery on the driveway, so I kept my head down, watching where I placed my feet.

Oomph.” I bounced off of something and flew backward, but before I could hit the ground, two gloved hands caught me.

Bright blue met my gaze. “Holy fuck.”

Colton.

His face was clean-shaven, but it was him. Older, with the sort of frame that came from, I didn’t know, building fences and hammering railroad ties. He watched me.

“Hey,” Oliver said from behind me.

Colton blinked, like Oliver’s voice had shocked him back to life. One second, I was an arm’s length away, and the next I was pressed against his chest. “Jesus Christ, Lacey. I can’t believe it’s you.”

“Take a moment!” Oliver called out. “I’m going inside. I’m freezing my ass off.”

I blinked. We had to get the man proper winter gear if he was going to stay here. But the truth was, Colton didn’t have a coat either. Wow. I was really not thinking clearly. He was here, shivering in my arms.

His smile was huge. “Lacey, I have so many things to say to you. I…”

A car door opened and closed, catching my attention. Coming out of the passenger side was Aaron. His hair was still long, like it had been when we were younger, but tied back neatly to keep it away from his face.

With some part of my mind, I registered the suitcases in the snow and the car backing away. But I was transfixed by Aaron’s face. He didn’t smile when he saw me, but there wasn’t anger on his face either. More like disbelief. His dark gaze asked a million questions.

“Lacey.” His voice shook a little bit. “You aren’t a figment of our imagination, right?”

I shook my head. “Not unless we’re all having the same delusion where you guys are made up in my head.” A gust of wind reminded me of what was happening. A decade earlier, I’d been freezing in Anchorage without the right clothing. I knew what that cold felt like. “Come on inside. Grab whatever you brought with you. Nothing stays in the car in this kind of chill.”

“Right.” But Colton didn’t move. “If I let you go, are you going to vanish?” His voice was low. “Because I really like this moment. Even though it’s freezing. You’re here. Ten years older and beautiful. Alive. And in my arms. I don’t want to move an inch.”

He had always been able to make me blush, and none of that had changed apparently. “I’m only going to head in the house. Hopefully, you’ll come with me.”

He let go with one hand. “I will. Thank you for inviting us in.”

Aaron took my hand, pulling me from Colton. “Get your stuff, Colt. Lacey, how do you do this kind of freezing on a regular basis?”

“Alaska is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.”
Ripley Proserpina; Rebecca Royce. Voices in the Darkness: The Coveted Book 2 (Kindle Locations 648-672).

Now it’s not until Thorn arrives that they get a look at Lacey’s latest case. The wife of a patient who recently visited the new Sleep Clinic, is claiming he is raving about demons, possession and ghosts. Although he is getting some inpatient help elsewhere.

Lacey is very glad the guys are there as things heat up with her hearing voices in her head and the definite possibility of a demon. There’s also the relationship that although it’s been ten years, is still very much there and the love just oozes through the pages.

I love all the characters in these books and the story has me wanting more. Lacey and the guys deserve their happily ever after so very much!

I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

I warned you and you didn’t listen to me. You liked me. I told you not to do it but you did.

Now here we are. In so much trouble I can’t see a path where all of us aren’t dead before the end of the year.

I’m not just dragging myself down to hell, I’m taking four incredible men–who had the unfortunate luck to run into me–with me. I targeted them, took them down. And now I might just get them killed.

They were stupid boys to fall in love with me, but I’m a dumb girl because I’m going to try to save them. It won’t work. But I’m going to try anyway.

Nothing could have surprised Holland more than the guys who broke her, finding her. More than that she couldn’t let them die at the hands of her Uncle’s minions, so she killed them. Now she has to face the consequences of that action.

Her Politician, Graham Kempner, is the one who searches for her and finds the others. First he found Steve Wolf, her Quarterback, he wasn’t pleased to be reminded of what he lost, but comes around to wanting answers too.

Next he finds Jamie Rawlings, her Artist, the man who is as lost as she is, and still loves her.

Finally he finds her Surgeon, Charles Dorfman, all of them have reason to hate Holly, none of them can stop loving her.

In this book they will get answers, but first they have to leave her to face her punishment for the men she killed to save them.

Jamie is the one who picks her up when she leaves her Uncle’s with injuries from the beating she took. The men are all staying at a seedy little motel and once Jamie has her settled he gets Charles to help with her injuries.

Holland has never shared anything of her past but in order to save them and herself she has to complete an impossible task.

I couldn’t put this book down as it journals how Graham finds the others and her, and also follows Holly through her horrible initiation into her Uncle’s world.

Some laughter, lots of tears, sizzling heat and an ending that had me wanting more.

Purgatory City – Through The Gates Book 1 by Rebecca Royce & Skye MacKinnon


Purgatory City 
Through the Gates Book 1
By

Rebecca Royce
&
Skye Mac Kinnon

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Play the Game or die.

Alone in a desolate world ravaged by war and alien invasion, Eileen Paine offers herself to indentured servitude in Purgatory City—a chance at a different life.

No one knows what happens beyond the gates, but it has to be better than the peril in the Blastlands. Nothing could have prepared her for the darkness, the tests, the changes, or the people she meets. Least of all being changed and controlled by the aliens in power.

With no guarantee of success, eliminations happening frequently, and the threat of potential allies becoming enemies, does Eileen have what it takes to survive? And when her heart gets involved, can she live with what she has to do to escape Purgatory?

When I started reading this I wasn’t sure what to expect. I sure didn’t expect cages and voices. The terrain Eileen was to navigate was foreign and she is given very little direction. On that first challenge she meets Clay, X and Y, and Kenny who was on the cage next to her joins as well. What ensues is an initiation of sorts, one where she believes she’s going to die.

This is a favorite scene.

Both men stared at me, not saying a word. I felt a little uncomfortable under their intense gaze, but I kept looking straight ahead, taking both of them in. Their bodies were athletic and lithe, perfect for surviving in whatever cruel game we were playing. I bet they could outrun me without even breaking a sweat.

Suddenly, the guy on the left shot forward, wrapping his hands around my throat. We tumbled to the ground, my back hitting a sharp stone. I would have screamed if his hands hadn’t prevented me from breathing. I struggled against his grip, but he shifted around until he was sitting on top of me, using his body weight to subdue me. I tried to pry his hands off, but he was too strong. No matter how much I scratched him, he didn’t let go.

Black spots began to shimmer in front of my eyes. Now would have been a really good moment for Tim to resurface. There were sounds in the background, but my eyes started to buzz, droning out the voices. I was becoming too weak to struggle.

I was dying.

He was killing me.

“Oh no, he’s not.”

Tim’s voice rang through my brain, loud and clear. A moment later, pain filled my skull and my vision disappeared, followed by a loud bang. The hands around my throat vanished, and I drew in a ragged breath, almost too weak to breathe.

Then there was silence. I still couldn’t see, but nobody spoke to tell me what was happening. Time seemed to pass quickly but there was nothing I could do about it. My throat hurt like hell, and my lungs were burning. Why had that bastard tried to kill me? Had it been their plan all along?

Slowly, the darkness receded a little.

“Can you stand up?” Tim asked in my head after what felt like forever.

I doubted it. I couldn’t even blink my eyes open. I was weak as a baby, unable to move, unable to speak.

“Seems I need to work on this defense tech,” he muttered, almost as if to himself, which was kind of ironic seeing that it was him in my brain and not the other way round. “If it leaves you unable to run after deployment, it’s of no use.”

None of what he said made sense. I wish I could have asked him, but even swallowing was almost impossible. I wrenched my eyes open and groaned. Okay. I wasn’t being attacked anymore. The one who had been doing it was across the space, holding his head, and I clearly had done something to him, even if I couldn’t remember what that was.

“Interesting,” Kenny chuckled, his voice crazed once again. “I didn’t expect that. You were out for an entire hour.“

Clay groaned. “Neither did I. Nice trick, Eileen.”

Sounds of footsteps were followed by someone putting a hand on my forehead. “Wow, you’re burning up.

What did those bastards do to you?”

“She’s a new generation,” a new voice said. It had to be X or Y. “Sorry, lass. I had to know if they’d modified you. Only major threats reveal the tech they’ve implanted in you. Guess this is our lucky day.”

My throat hurt, and Tim wasn’t commenting. For all the tech that was apparently installed inside of me, healing me was clearly not a priority. They didn’t want me dead yet? Great. I was on board with that, but he could have thrown in a throat lozenge, and I’d have been thrilled with that, too.

Not that we’d had any for years. I rubbed my throat, and Clay bent over to hand me some hot tea. They must have brought supplies with them. I gladly took the mug.

The man grimaced. “Sorry about your throat. He wouldn’t have killed you. I mean, you would have passed out, but unless he was instructed to kill, X wasn’t going to do that.”

I leaned forward. “It was a dick move. Coming in here like you’re friendly, like you want to be some kind of big instructor and friend in this hellhole, and going for my throat? That is really low. Although, maybe I should be thanking you because your little test did teach me more than anything else could have.”

The fire they’d lit outside the cabin crackled as Y threw a stick into it. After X’s apology, those two had gone back to being silent. Clay had been right about them. They didn’t talk much. I preferred it that way.

Ken laughed, sitting back on his elbows. “No heroes in here, Eileen. I don’t like your name. I’m going to come up with something else. I’ll let you know when I decide what it is.”

I’d never cared for nicknames. “Don’t hurt yourself trying.”
Rebecca Royce; Skye MacKinnon. Purgatory City: Through The Gates Book One (Kindle Locations 274-309). Peryton Press.

These guys are all controlled by different voices, and her ‘Tim’ was a bit more helpful than theirs.

Eileen is snarky, efficient and sexy. The guys are handsome and protective even when they shouldn’t be.

An interesting, thrill packed tale with the beginnings of a reverse harem as Eileen finds she doesn’t want to be without any of them.

I can’t wait to read the next step in their journey!

Throne Taker – Heart of the Nebula Book 3 by Heather Long and Rebecca Royce


Throne Taker
Heart of the Nebula Book 3

Rebecca Royce

Everything has come down to this…

Everything in Khloe with a K’s life changed when she crashed into the side of a food truck. Now with Earth in the rearview mirror, her future lies with Briggs, Goran, Reese, and Dalton. Forging their bonds was only the first step, but will it be enough to sustain them in the face of new challenges?

A new world.

A new life.

A new choice.

The stunning conclusion to the Heart of the Nebula trilogy.

*Please note*
This is a reverse harem and the authors suggest you always read the forwards in their books. This is the third and final in a trilogy.

Nothing like thwarting everything other people plan for you. Khloe is Queen and she’s not going to be bossed around. One of the first places she want’s to see is the waterfall. First though she has to meet a couple of people she missed the day before.

Having been up all night listening to her family history, she knows a lot more about these folks than they think she does. After the initial pleasantries she invites them to join her on her excursion to the falls.

As she absorbs not only the beauty but also the sad history, someone approaches Dalton thinks she should hear. This results in another excursion, this one to the part of the city called ‘The Below’. What they find there appalls her.

This is a favorite scene.

Instead, I turned to the brave young man who’d come all the way to bring me here. He’d been silent the whole trip over. “Can you show me?”

He nodded, fast. “I can, Majesty. Yes.”

“Great.” I motioned forward. “Lead the way.”

We were quite a parade making our way through The Below, and people came out to stare at us. Most of the population was just hanging around the streets, playing cards or simply sitting idly.

Briggs scowled. My visiting this crowded location probably wasn’t his favorite thing at the moment. But I imagined he’d never be thrilled when I risked unexpected exposure to elements he couldn’t control.

We should do this more often. Kieran didn’t rush, though the crowd seemed to thicken the deeper we went, and it impeded his progress until two of the guards moved ahead to help clear the way. Words fluttered after me.

“The queen!”

“Make way for the royal guard!”

“She’s here?!?”

“Is that the queen?”

“I thought she’d be…”

“She’s so pretty!”

Other voices floated down, and I realized The Below wasn’t just on the ground, but stacked above were these precarious walkways between the upper levels of the buildings. It was like someone had built apartments into the massive stacks of containers on a container ship.

We were deep into the shadows now, and there was almost no sunlight. Artificial lamps glowed dimly along the walls, and the one nearest us sputtered. The hum and buzz reminded me of a bad fixture in the kitchen at the bar. Gradually, I realized everyone around me had stopped, and even the whispers quieted.

“Your Majesty?” Briggs was at my elbow, his voice low but urgent.

“One second,” I said, touching his arm gently and then moving toward the flickering light. The shadows danced around it, but worse, the constant buzzing was irritating as hell.

How did they sleep with it malfunctioning?

guards went to remove people in my path. “Stop. I just want to get to the light, no one has to be shoved.”

The pair hesitated, but they looked from me to Briggs, then back to the people facing us.

“Do you mind?” I asked an older man dressed in stained work clothing, or what I assumed had to be work clothing. His shirt had tattered edges, and the threading on his jacket was frayed. His eyebrows climbed at my question, and then, slowly, he shook his head and took a step back.

“Thank you,” I told him briskly. The crawling was worse down here; it was like that along most of the buildings, just sluggish little jerks. Pressing a hand to the wall, I ignored the cold, rough feeling of the metal. It was like touching something that had died.

Was the energy sluggish because it couldn’t move? Or was there just not enough?

“Are the lights always like this, Kieran?”

“Um…” The young man edged closer to me. “Mostly always like this. Some are just out. No one replaces them anymore. Some of us have torches.”

Torches? Like actual fire-burning torches?

No, the nanos were clear. Not fire. Flashlights.

Okay.

Not much better, but definitely better.

“We’re used to it,” Kieran said, then cleared his throat. “I mean we endure, Your Majesty. This is not so bad.”

No, it was never so bad. The little things. You got used to it. Light bulb goes out and you can’t afford to replace it, or you only have a dimmer one, you make do. It becomes normal. Then you don’t realize what you’re missing anymore, because you endure.

I knew all about that.

I could feel energy, and I was practically full to bursting with it. The channels in the wall that carried power was a system of wiring, but I could touch this energy. It was as cold as the wall and barely able to kindle itself.

The buzzing needed to stop, and the only way to do that was break the light or fix it. It needed more power, so I reached. The energy fountained up within me, and I sent it right into the wall, into the wires and the channels. I pushed, shuttling through the channels. It fought me, resisted, but bit by bit, it gave way, and the light above me steadied and then began to brighten.

Beyond it, there were more clogged channels and shadows to chase. The clusters on my skin tightened and exploded outward in a shower of tingles against my flesh, and I pushed the energy through.

Maybe I couldn’t fix all their problems in a day, but they could damn well have light.

There were gasps all around me. Crowds walked toward us as the lights came on everywhere. Suddenly, The Below was as bright as anywhere I’d been.

“Look what she did.”

“The Queen made it light.”

“Miracle.”

“Khloe, the bringer of light.”

A boom sounded behind us, and we all whirled around. In under two seconds, Briggs was in front of me and so were the guards. I could see enough to know a group of men all wearing black stormed toward us.

“What do you think you’re doing here?”

I let the guys into my head. Whoever these people were, I needed to know.

Zylots. Briggs told me without ever looking at me. And they’re pissed.

I just bet they were. Briggs, let me through. I won’t hide from them, not in a first meeting.
Heather Long; Rebecca Royce. Throne Taker: Heart of the Nebula Book 3 (Kindle Locations 867-912).

The first encounter with the Zylots is enough to start Khloe thinking of another path for her reign.

Many decisions, a lofty goal, friends and enemies, and romance that doesn’t quit. I really hated to see this book end, I’d really love more of these characters.

The Men of Elite Metal: Platinum, Zinc, & Francium By Rebecca Royce


The Men of Elite Metal
Platinum, Zinc, & Francium
By
Award Winning Author
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Meet the Men of Elite Metal…

Platinum…

When they try to take what belongs to him, they’ll discover just how deadly Platinum can be.

Zinc…

Zinc has nothing to prove–and everything to lose.

Francium…

Just because he’s on the right side of the fight doesn’t mean she can trust him.

NOTE:
These books were previously published in 3 different anthologies. The author has received her rights back and is publishing them herself now. These stories are hot romances with jealous and possessive heroes. You have been warned.

Platinum

This one tugged at my heartstrings in so many ways. We do some now and then with this one giving insight to the thoughts and feelings of both Platinum and Rose.

Platinum has a son no one on the team knows about. He has been supporting him anonymously since he learned of his existence.

He accidentally met his teacher while watching his class in the playground from a bench across the way. Rose was everything he wanted in a partner. Then he was torn away from that life, back to his team and the quest to find and destroy Red Wolf.

Rose was angry, he vanished without a word. Now she’s afraid for Kent, his grandmother killed and the two of them being shot at. She took him to the safest place she could think of, her parents cabin.

This is a favorite scene.

“Ms. Rose.”She jumped at the sound of his voice. So intent on listening for noises outside, she hadn’t noticed Kent awakened.

“Sweetheart. Come here.” She extended her arms and he walked into them. He needed to stay close where she could grab him if necessary. If he moved around too much or she was out of range and something happened, she’d never forgive herself.

“It happened, really? My Maw Maw, she’s dead.” He hadn’t quite gotten rid of the lisp sound when he made his s sounds, although it was much better than when he’d been in her class. The act left the impression of his being much younger than his actual age.

She saw children two years younger than him every day. Still, Kent seemed very small to her.

“It did.”

“The woman police officer, she came through the door. Shot my Maw Maw and then she wanted me. I ran. I hid. And then you came.”

Exactly the way he told the story earlier. Starts and stops, not much detail to hold onto. His Maw Maw started medicating him earlier in the year to help with his focus, which would have to be wearing off soon. The fact he’d slept at all surprised her. Trauma could trump anything going on in the body, it seemed. She’d never needed him to take medication when he’d been in her class. Since he was older, and the work was more taxing, the teachers complained more. Who was she to judge? She liked Kent focused or inattentive. Either way, he was a great kid.

“We’re going to be okay.” Lying to him seemed the kindest thing she could do.

“You always told us not to fib.”

She squeezed his arm. “Smarty-pants. Don’t you think I can figure out what to do?”

He was silent for a while and when he spoke again, his words surprised her. “Maybe we can call my dad.”
Royce, Rebecca. Platinum. Royce, Rebecca. Kindle Edition.

The past hurtles into the present, the sniper’s thoughts, the heartbreak, and more. There is much to explain and so much to lose. I loved every word and every tear I shed.

5 Contented Purrs for Rebecca!

Zinc

Zinc wanted one thing from Steele when he took off his mask, the answer to a question. The question – Why did you leave me behind? Like all the other Zinc lost much when he became a Ghost. Only he didn’t have the years of freedom the others had in between.What happens when it wasn’t answered immediately was painful for both of them. Steele with a broken face literally, that required surgery and Zinc with no relief from the physical and emotional pain.

This book takes off quickly and Zinc’s mission is to get Steele’s sister Sarah out of the clutches of one of Red Wolf’s minions. Walter David. David is, among other things, a stop on the human trafficking pathway.

Sarah a CIA agent was taken for asking the wrong kind of questions about her brother Steele and Zinc’s deaths. Questions that led her to Red Wolf.

Zinc had always been attracted to Sarah, but she was off limits because of being his best friends sister. Now she was being held a sexual captive. His mission is to get her out. A mission that rapidly goes to hell.

Forced to bail on the plane after discovering Titanium’s pilot was working with Red Wolf. Then not able to return to headquarters because of possible infiltration. Sarah and Zinc/Zach are on the run until it’s safe to go in.

Zinc has migraines and issues with wrong words after one due to his healing brain.

A favorite passage is from the first stop on their journey.

“Do you know what I meant although I said the wrong thing? Probably if I try to self correct over the next few minutes I will continue to misspeak. So, I’m hoping you know what I…”As an answer, she placed the keycard in his outstretched hand. “Don’t worry, I speak Zach.”

He laughed at her response, the reaction catching him by surprise. “Then you’d be the only one. I’m not sure I speak me anymore.”
Rebecca Royce. Zinc. Royce, Rebecca. Kindle Edition.

Sarah has always fantasized about Zach, she figured she wasn’t his type. She couldn’t have been more wrong. These guys fall hard and fast, Zach is no exception.The action is intense and the sex is hotter than hot. And all that’s before her brother finds out.

Francium

A big step in taking down any organization is finances. That is Russell “Francium” Burke’s Mission. While they had already been manipulating things so money was being heavily lost. The position they now had Remington Reagan, Red Wolf’s CFO, in was becoming critical and Russell was positioning himself to be his replacement.

Lara London-Reagan was trapped in a loveless marriage, held captive by actions she confessed to her husband before they were married. She’d about reached the end of her rope when she caught their new neighbor watching them having sex.

One thing about all these books is the strength of the women, Lara is no exception and she puts herself at great risk.

A favorite quote.

“I’m not a wilting flower. I mean, I have been, but before that I wasn’t. I was the kind of woman who knew how to get things done.”
Rebecca Royce. Francium. Royce, Rebecca. Kindle Edition.

I do love the ways the Elite crew persuade co-operation. Again this will cause a change in the initial plans but hey, whatever works.More surprises and hold your breath moments as Lara and Russell explore their relationship. This one with a little kink.
