Time isn’t kind…

Waverly Sandler is nothing like her mad father. She’s a nurse. She takes care of people. She is fighting to live down her name. She’s also a sister, a friend, and someday, if the universe is kind, she hopes to be a lover and a wife.

Life at The Farm is one of constant activity, because freedom exacts a high price. When Waverly is tapped for a special assignment, she’s eager to rise to the task of being useful, but the last thing she expected was the attention of four of the strongest, most united group of men she’s ever met.

Ari, the doctor who sees things.
Jackson, the man determined to live down his past.
Rohan, the Super Soldier who longs to be a person.
Canyon, the Super Soldier who sees the possibilities of a better life.

They need her more than she could ever know, and will change her life in ways she could never anticipate.

All they have to do is survive war, disease, and time…

Winter Blog Review

Waverly Sandler believes she is unworthy of anything that comes naturally to others. In her mind she is the ugly Sandler, her hair too orange, her eyes just brown, she’s too curvy and much too tall. While that may be how some folks see her, it is not how the guys see her or Paloma or Diana or Melissa. They all see a beautiful, intelligent and talented woman.

If you have been following this series then you know a bit about the possibility of time travel. This book takes that further as Waverly is asked to help out Ari, Jackson, Rohan and Canyon.

There is a lot that goes on in this one and I am hard-pressed to choose a favorite scene as there are many. But I think I have to go with this one. Jackson joins Waverly at lunch after she and Ari deliver Paloma’s baby.

Jackson added a piece of chicken, a carton of milk, and some carrots to his plate. I was eating turkey soup. I ate it so frequently I could barely taste it anymore.

He grabbed his tray and strode into the Mess like a person who was confident in his ability to belong wherever he placed himself. I always kept my head down and walked over to my table, hoping not to trip.

It took me a second to realize he was coming straight in my direction. Gasps sounded around the table, and Tina grabbed Shannon’s arm. “Do you think he’s coming to speak to you?”

She had said she wanted to marry him. Had she somehow called him to her? Instead, he strode to the end of our table and sat down right across from me.

Technically, Carla was directly across from me. But she was tiny, and there was space next to her.

“Waverly, hello.” He glanced at the rest of the table. “Ladies.”

Hellos were said in various degrees of high-pitched glee. He ignored them. “How are you today?”

I swallowed. “Okay. How are you?”

“Just okay? I hear you were pivotal in saving Paloma and Benjamin.” He cut into his chicken, picked some up with his fork, stuck it in his mouth, and chewed. I watched, transfixed, as his mouth worked.

My cheeks heated. He was waiting for me to answer. “It was really all Ari.”

“Not what he said.” He took another bite. I could become preoccupied watching him eat. “He said you were right there, anticipated his every move, kept the patient calm, and took care of the father, uncle situation. He says he couldn’t have done it without you.”

Had he really? Jackson had talked to Ari about me? “Well, he’s being kind.”

“Not usually.” He set down his fork. “Is soup your second lunch or all you’re eating?”

What? Oh, my lunch. I looked down at my soup and then back at Jackson. “This is what I usually eat.”

“Really? How do you get through the day with so little food in your stomach?”

“This is Waverly,” Shannon called out, laughing. “She’s just sturdy. Doesn’t need a lot of food and keeps on pushing through.”

Jackson raised his eyebrows slowly and regarded Shannon. “I’m sorry. Who are you? Remind me. I do thousands of security clearances. I can’t remember everyone. Sharon, is it?”

Her face turned red. “Shannon. With Ns. Not Rs.”

“Oh, that’s right. Your brothers are great allies. What do you do? I mean, I could look it up. If I cared.”

On one hand, Shannon should be thrilled. Jackson was paying her a lot of attention. On the other, I never wanted him to look at me the way he was glaring at her. Why was he doing this?

She cleared her throat. “I work in the clothing manufacturing. You’re probably wearing socks I helped to sew.”

“That’s really important. Thank you for that. I really do appreciate everyone who works so hard for all of us.” He sighed. “Would you like to do something else? Say, off The Farm? On a ship headed for the Dark Planets?”

She paled. “No.”

“Just checking.” He rose. “I need some air. Want some air, Waverly?”

“I…” Shannon was glowering. There was no way I was going to avoid having to talk about the trouble with my facial features now. “Yes, I’d like some air.”

Jackson nodded. “Great. Grab your coat and your soup. We’ll eat outside. Thanks for the conversation, Sharon. See the rest of you ladies soon.”

“It’s Shannon,” she shrieked after us as we walked.

When we got outside, Jackson sat down on a bench. I didn’t know who kept decorating The Farm, but every time I came outside, someone had put in more landscaping. I was glad I wasn’t the only person who meant to make this place home. I’d never leave if I could avoid it.

I loved it here. For the first time ever, I wasn’t afraid.

“Why did you do that?” I had to ask him. Did he hate Shannon for some reason? He side-eyed me as he sipped his milk. “I don’t like mean people. That girl was mean. She wanted my attention. Okay, fine. I’m flattered. I don’t… date or anything. That’s not my style. I want to be with the one, right woman. I am really honored that there’s something about me she wanted to get to know better. But picking on you to get my attention? Screw that. Low form of communication. I just reacted.”

Oh. Well, I wasn’t really sure what to say about that. “I don’t think she was particularly picking on me. I mean, she’s not always kind or careful with what she says.”

“There would be the definition.” He grinned at me. “How are you so sweet? You shouldn’t be. You should be a raving bitch. But you’re so nice.”

I looked down at my feet. “I have a lot of things I need to work on about myself. I know… I’m sort of ridiculous.”

Jackson took my hand in his. “That was a compliment I just gave you. Not a critique.”
Royce, Rebecca. Dark Demise (Wings of Artemis Book 7) (Kindle Locations 463-506). After Glows Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Many things happen from here, as each of the four men make their unique move on Waverly. To say she is stunned is an understatement.

Time travel takes on a whole new meaning, even as there are those plotting against them. Romance and trust grows slowly as circumstances go wildly out of control.

I laughed, I cried and damn these guys are sexy, sweet and deadly too. Our heroine is put through a lot and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Saving Them – Wings Of Artemis Book 6 by Rebecca Royce


Saving Them
Wings Of Artemis Book 6
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Paloma McQueen is a woman on a mission.

Loving the Sandler brothers in the midst of a war tearing their galaxy apart never promised to be easy but Paloma swore an oath to her husbands. Their challenges are hers, their war hers, their happiness… Everything she is and will be, she plans to be with them no matter what changes the conflicts wrought on the map.

When a battle gone wrong rips her away from her loves, she will tear the galaxy apart to get them.

She made a promise to love them for better or worse and nothing—not war, cartel, or corporation will keep her from those she loves.

Nothing.

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

Paloma is a very strong, very determined woman who frequently ends up in a med machine through no fault of her own. This book opens with Paloma and her husbands leading others towards Sandler Space.

Now this book does a little back and forth with timeline, but it is necessary for the telling.

Paloma once again wakes up from a med machine and she has no recollection of how she got there. She is with two of her husbands, Melissa, Diana and their husbands, and many more on the planet where they took refuge after Garrison Sandler attacked Mars Station.

With Keith and Clay by her side she learns her other two husbands are gone, there is a tape of their execution by their father. Paloma really doesn’t believe it, she doesn’t feel them gone in her heart. Even after watching the tape twice, she is in denial.

This is a favorite scene, when Clay, Keith, and Paloma learn the truth about the video.

“Why are we here?” Clay moved slightly until he was directly on my other side. “I mean, we would like to get to know you. We might stay a while. Now that we’re not going to be in the med bay all the time, maybe we could help with things. In a bit. I think we’re adjusting to our life now. It might take some time to be okay.”

Canyon looked at Rohan. “Grief?”

“Yes.” Rohan moved to the screen and touched a button. He might as well have knocked me down. There on the screen was the hellish feed of Tommy and Quinn dying. I cried out and covered my eyes with my hand. I hadn’t been prepared for that, and since I was likely not going to kill Garrison Sandler, I didn’t see why I should ever watch it again.

I threw myself against Clay’s shoulder as though he could make the sound stop.

“Hey,” Keith and Clay said at the same time.

“What are you doing?” Clay wrapped his hand over my eyes, too. I couldn’t see the feed, but I could still hear it just fine.

“It’s a fake,” Rohan answered.

I dropped my hand from my eyes, and Clay dropped his, too. “What?”

“I am well versed in forgery. We frequently sent out fake images to places before we could invade them for Evander Corporation. That is one of the best ways to get people to not do things to make you kill them. I had no reason to watch the feed before last night. I don’t know your people. But I followed Paloma’s heartbeat. I wished to put a face to the sound I’d heard for the last month. There was a lot of pain each time she almost died,” Rohan explained.

It was so bizarre to hear him talk about my heartbeat as though it was something he could actually hear and identify. I might care to hear more about it later. He’d said the feed was fake.

“After watching it twice, I was quite certain it wasn’t real. I couldn’t have proven it to you then. That was simply… intuition. But Canyon can see things differently. I asked him to look.”

Canyon walked to the controls and paused the scene. It was right before they were about to die. “My eyes have been reworked to make me a better killer. I can spot someone who isn’t even a speck in the human eye yet, target them and kill them. Humans are shadows to me. I cannot see facial features, more like you are all heat and shadow. I can see mechanical things just fine. It’s like they removed my ability to see humans so I would not care about them. Pieces of darkness.”

He pressed another button to start the screen again. “That is not a human on the screen. Tommy and Quinn are drawings superimposed on footage from something else. I can see them. They are faked. Computer images. I can see them.”

Clay’s body shook next to me, and Keith let out a gasp. They’d lived with this for a month. For an entire month, they’d thought their brothers had been brutally killed. I’d only had one day with it and that was more than enough.

My knees threatened to give, but I stayed strong.

Keith found his voice first. “You’re sure about this. Absolutely sure?”

Canyon nodded. “Yes.”

I closed my eyes. We were going to get my other two loves back. “Thank you, Canyon, Rohan. You have given us such a gift. I will never ever be able to pay this back. If I can ever pay it forward, I will.”
Royce, Rebecca. Saving Them (Wings of Artemis Book 6) (pp. 67-69). After Glows Publishing. Kindle Edition.

This is just the beginning as we watch Paloma grow, both in determination and strength.

A fast paced page turner that will have you holding your breath more than once. Lots of love, encouragement, simmer to sizzle passion and some pretty cool revelations.

Dark Demise, the next book in this series is on my TBR pile. I think it just got pushed up the list.

My Review of Loving Them – Wings of Artemis Book 5 by Rebecca Royce


Loving Them
Wings Of Artemis Book 5
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Saved from a life of suffering, Paloma Delacroix is determined to make the best life possible for herself, and for the four men she loves. Loving them is a challenge she never dreamed she’d be up for and one she refuses to fail. Before they can kickstart the life they all dream of, Thomas, Clay, Keith and Quinn McQueen will take Paloma back to Mars Station. They have the whole of the Sandler armada to defeat.

With the help of family, friends, and lost allies, they just might make it work…if they can survive their wedding day.

Content warning: Reverse Harem. Intense.

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

With the release of Dark Demise, it dawned on me that I hadn’t reviewed the previous two Wings of Artemis books. So I thought I’d catch up before I review the latest.

After the sisterhood where Paloma had been exiled is destroyed she finds her way to Quinn and his brothers. They aren’t going to be staying there much longer, they needed to get to Mars Station and plot the takedown of their father.

Melissa welcomes Paloma back to the Station and the men start their planning.

Paloma wants a wedding and that is part of the plan, one that isn’t stopped even when a bomb goes off inside the station.

This is a favorite scene after Paloma gets out of the med machine.

The few times I had imagined getting married, a dream I’d thought ended when my parents banished me to the Sisterhood, it had never been in a bloody mess of clothing having just gotten out of a medical machine. But when it came down to it, I didn’t care a bit what I looked like. Or that a man who had just finished using the word “honeys” to refer to former lovers was actually performing the ceremony.

I’d also not imagined we could laugh so much through the ceremony.

“And do you, Paloma, take these four men—with all their many flaws and strengths—to be with you from now and always?”

Now and Always. Those were huge statements. I hadn’t known them all that long. And yet, from the moment Clay had appeared at the Sisterhood, it had felt as though everything moved toward this. Quinn cracked up, rubbing his nose. “Thanks for saying ‘flaws’ first, Ari.”

“Quinn.” Ari’s eyes were filled with amusement. “This is a sacred moment. We are waiting for Paloma to answer. Do you?”

I grinned at him and then Tommy. Then Clay. Keith and then Quinn.

“I feel like everything that has happened to me in my life has happened so I could be led to you. So, yes, with all your flaws and strengths, I will marry the four of you. For now and always. Just as I hope you’ll accept all of mine, of which there are many.”

Rings were exchanged. I didn’t know where they’d gotten them—since they had thoughtfully bought four for me to give to them as well—but they were beautiful. My ring had four gemstones in it. Red, black, blue, and green gems adorned the silver band that I would wear forever on my left hand. Theirs were all the same with a capital letter P engraved into the simple silver they would also never take off.

Now and Always…

Ari said some more things, but I had lost sense of the event transpiring. There was just one world, and only Tommy, Clay, Keith, Quinn, and I lived in it. I was their wife.
Royce, Rebecca. Loving Them (Wings of Artemis Book 5) (Kindle Locations 860-877). After Glows Publishing. Kindle Edition.

There are plenty of things to overcome, one of which is actually being a Sandler. Paloma finds she is up to the challenge even as her husbands face revelation after revelation about their parents.

A fast paced read, with suspense, revenge, laughter, tears and plenty of heat!

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

The Final Episode: Persuasion Enraptured – Cascade Series Book 4 by Rebecca Royce

It’s come down to this…

Kendall sacrificed herself for everyone… but her journey isn’t over.   Alive and alone in the Shadow Dimension, Kendall has surrendered hope. But those who love her have not. Rescue is not beyond possibility. Saving Kendall is only the first battle. Can she save the world or is it already too late?

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogogoogle_play_logo_002_002

In the last book Kendall has sacrificed herself for her family and friends. Now her existence is in the Shadow Dimension. She gave up hope of Malcolm coming for her a long time ago. But surprise!

This is a favorite scene.

“Your name is Kendall Madison Fallon. You’ve also had the last name Yates. You’re my wife. You weren’t always. Once, you were married to a guy named Levi. You and he have three children together— Grayson, Dexter, and Molly. They’re waiting. We have a baby. She’s just two weeks old. You named her Abigail. She’s … beautiful.”

I put out my hand. “Stop it. Stop talking.” I couldn’t breathe. His words were daggers stabbing at my heart. “What is this pain? What is this you’re doing to me? And why would you want to? Who sent you here to do this to me?”

“I’m not here to hurt you. I’m here to bring you home. That pain? It’s probably from the memories trying to resurface. I don’t blame you for letting them go. One hundred years? They’d drive me mad. You jumped here to save us all. You did it. You plugged the hole. You sacrificed yourself. But I’m not done with you. I’ll never be. There are three choices. You take my hand, and you come home. I grab your hand, you come home, and the resistance hurts Victoria. Or I stay here with you.” He took another step closer. “If you insist on option three, we’ll make our daughter an orphan. I also don’t know what will happen with the battle. We need to kill the Master. I’m the guy to kill him. Maybe Ross can do it. I don’t know. So what’s your choice, my love? Because I will not live without you. It’s always Malcolm and Kendall. I found you here. I will not lose you. We live. We die. Together.”

I covered my eyes like I could make him go away. “Why would you do this?”

“Because I love you. Kendall, open your eyes.” I obeyed him. For one hundred years, I’d not taken a command from anyone. Yet he told me to do something, and there I was following his command. “Take my hand. The rest of it? We’ll figure it out. Your memories aren’t gone. They’re there. You’re feeling them right now. Come back with me. There are people who will help you.”

“Help me?” I stepped away from him. “That’s hope talk. That’s what makes people lose their minds. I won’t do that.” My hands shook, but I ignored them. “You have The Master up there? He was once a leader here. That’s what they tell me.”

He put his hand out in front of me. “He’s a very bad opponent. He did this. We need to kill him, and I’m not sure I can without you.”
Rebecca Royce. Persuasion Enraptured (Kindle Locations 127-145). After Glows Publishing.

Kendall has changed and the lengths they go to help her regain herself leave her conflicted.

She finds out a lot about herself and the others as they prepare for the final battle.

A page turning, emotional, conclusion to this fabulous tale!

Zane is not a good man, but who said he has to be to fulfill his Outsider destiny? The battle has come to a head and, with everything on the line, it’s time the Outsiders stopped playing it so easy. At least as far as Zane is concerned.

Raquel exists to handle flames. Her soul mate needs to be a man who can handle her heat. Zane is just the man for the job. But with the world exploding around them, it may be too late for love. The battle has just begun and yet it’s already too late.

Unless they can still win the day.

KindleLogo ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo smashwords_logo

I was so happy to see this one! I’ve been waiting what seems like forever for this saga to continue. That said, I don’t think I’ve felt bad for any of these couples except maybe Leonardo and Alexa who really have some stuff to overcome.

In every story the attraction has been pretty instantaneous and hotter than hell. However, Zane and Raquel have a hard time just being together for more than a couple of minutes before some sort of hell breaks loose, let alone make love.

So here’s where we are, Alexa is in a sorry state, covered in demon that the healers can’t seem to clear. Zombies are everywhere. We still don’t know where Gia is. Sebastian is still causing havoc and his father gets pissed.

Zane and Rachel are together and trying to connect further but things are intense and interruptions are rampant. The first right at the beginning has Zane and Rachel in a future they need to get the others to help prevent.

This is a favorite scene that ultimately sets up the rest of the book.

“This is pretty bad, isn’t it?” Zane whirled around at the sound of Kal’s voice. But… that was impossible. He was dead. The other Outsider, one of the most powerful SOBs Zane could ever imagine, glistened in front of him, looking a phantom rather than the flesh and blood man Zane had seen only that morning.

“Kal?”

His friend shimmered forward. “I brought you here. This glimpse of the future is courtesy of me. And Gabriel. And Jason helped too. Don’t tell Isabelle. Only you can see me and it’ll hurt her tremendously to know I can’t talk to her. It’s the Fates. They have their rules.”

“What can I do to see to it this never happens?” Because if Zane had any say in it, the future he found himself in would never take place.

“That’s the million dollar question.” Kal looked away. “There were a million small decisions which led to this. But the biggest was Leonardo and Alexa. Our leader is stubborn and where I was back then, I didn’t feel I had the right to challenge him on his love life or lack thereof. Eventually, Alexa gave up. She let go and died. In no world should a power as strong as Alexa Lane give up hope. That’s on all of us. But mostly on him. I don’t know anyone who challenges Leonardo like you do. Or like you will do. He has to be made to see. This is where we are headed if we don’t win the war. And Sebastian wasn’t wrong. He can keep this dimension as long as he wants it. If he never gets bored, we don’t have another battle. It’s all over. We lose.”

Zane didn’t have as much of a relationship with Leonardo as Kal suggested. Maybe he would but they weren’t there yet. Although to avoid the future around him, he’d fucking play matchmaker if he had to and force their leader into compliance. If such a thing was possible…

Between the zombies, trying to help Alexa, finding a way to open the safe of their memories and so much more, you won’t be able to put this book down.

My Review of Rebecca Royce’s Fragility Unearthed – Cascade Series Book 3


Fragility Unearthed
Cascade Series Book 3
By
Rebecca Royce

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Malcolm is missing. Levi is taken. And all the light from the world has gone with them.

Kendall Malcolm thought the world ended when her marriage ended and her life fell apart. She was wrong. Things could be a lot darker. She stands at the precipice—leader, mother, warrior—placing herself between the world and darkness.

But does she have to do it alone? It’s looking that way.

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo

So much happens in this book, Malcolm and Chase find Troy and go to see if they can enlist his help. Meanwhile Levi is taken by ‘Top Hat’ and almost dies in the process. He is left however with an inability to tell them what he’s done.

They can’t find Malcolm or Chase and Mary keeps showing up when Victoria and Kendall are in the same room. She’s shouting but they can’t understand what she’s saying.

This is a favorite scene, as an emotional Kendall goes to clear a house of ghosts.

The door was unlocked, as promised, and I walked right in, flicking on the light. Not that I needed the illumination. I could see the ghosts as much in the dark as I could in the light.

Normal people didn’t stalk around in dark houses. Small gestures toward not becoming totally antisocial …

If I’d even momentarily forgotten about the Cascade, I would have remembered the second I walked into the house. What would I have told Malcolm about this job? Well, it was a busy ghost house. Were there always that many ghosts or had they shown up simply to deal with me?

I maneuvered through them. Some of them darted toward me; others scurried out of my way. I counted and stopped when I got upstairs and had reached fifty. Anything over fifty was all the same to me.

Not too long ago, I’d watched Grayson clear a ghost Malcolm had been carting around for years—the ghost of the man who killed us—doing a strange movement with his arms. It had been amusing. Still, it had started me thinking—maybe there was a more efficient way to manage things in here. Or maybe I could just amuse myself trying.

Malcolm dragged ghosts around with him. I could make them do things too. No one waited for me at home. I could take as long as I wanted giving this a try.

I waved my hand and could feel it burn as I took all the ghosts in the room under my control. There were ten there for me to play with. I itched to send them on.

Instead, I spun them in a circle. Centrifugal motion would be my best friend. “Look at you, look at all of you. I can make you dance.”

I tipped my finger and they danced up and down. “Oh, look at you. Like my own puppets.”

Imitating Grayson’s movements I ended up spinning the ghosts again until they were a ghostly tornado in the room. Over and over they spun while I watched. It transfixed me, and I couldn’t look away.

I had done this. I could make them do whatever the hell I wanted whenever I wanted it.

A boom sounded in the house. All of my ghosts were ripped from fingers, my hand tingling as they were ripped away. I jolted. Who had done that? Who had taken my ghosts? Malcolm? I whirled around and stopped in my tracks.
Standing in front of me was a person I had not seen since I I’d come back to life at twelve years old. Ross Taylor—one of our missing teammates.

Ross stood close to six feet five inches. He dwarfed me and even made Malcolm look small. Out of all of us, Ross had always been the most strikingly handsome. He had dark skin, a muscular body to match his height, brown, almost black eyes, and his head shaven to where he appeared bald. He wore a white collared shirt which accentuated the dark umber of his skin. He paired the white short sleeved top with a pair of blue jeans and brown boots which poked out of his jeans.

I swallowed before I could speak. He was powerful. Hugely, so. He could clear ghosts, and yet his psychic ability dwarfed that talent. If Dex and my mother could “see” things, Ross experienced them as though he lived the moment. Chase had tried to locate him, complicated by the fact that like Chelsea, Mary John, Chase and myself, Ross had chosen to not remember his life with the Others. Yet, here he stood.

“Tell me you’re not a sicko now, Kendall. Tormenting the ghosts?”  He raised his eyebrows.

His words undid me. He was right. I had been fucking with the ghosts in completely inappropriate ways. They’d been alive once. Living, breathing, sentient creatures. It was my privilege to send them on. My honor, my duty. I had no business being callous.

Ross is a welcome addition and Peter and Logan show up too.

Just when things appear to settle a bit, all hell breaks loose again.

Many surprises in this one, I laughed, held my breath more than once, and cried a few times as well. I am very glad the next book is coming out in May.

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. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!

Cheers!!

She assumes she’ll never see them again. But, Damian, Sterling, Cash, Lewis and Judge are on their way to her. When they find her they won’t let war, allegiance, or time differentials keep them from reclaiming their love.

Please note—this book contains the ending to Diana’s story, five hot men who love her, and a race through space you’ll never forget.

As Diana makes her way to the ship to join her family at their secret hideaway. She thinks she sees a familiar face. Now this is nothing new to her as she thinks she sees her husbands all the time. This time however it is different.

Oh how I sniffled, this is a favorite scene.

It was … him. It … was Damian.

How was he here? My heart rate kicked up till it pounded so loudly it drowned out all other sounds. I ran. I couldn’t speak, couldn’t call his name. My boots struck loudly on the floor with every move I made. I slammed into someone, couldn’t even apologize, and grabbed Damian’s arm.

He whirled around, facing me. Recognition flooded his expression. I knew this man— love, wonder, awe, disbelief— they all played in his gaze until utter joy took their place. “Di-Diana.” His voice shook, and then his arms were around me.

“Diana.” He said again, tugging me close, so tightly I could hardly breathe. “We thought… when we docked today, everyone was leaving. We thought you were gone. Judge was working on some plans … but I told them I had to give it a last look. You’re here. You’re here.

I breathed him in. He smelled … right. One of my guys. My love. Two years without him and we’d almost missed each other. “Damian. Damian. Damian.” I kept saying his name, almost unable to utter anything else. There were things … I had to think, I had to say. “I’d just thought— literally seconds ago— that I’d never see you again, not ever.” A sob threatened, and I shoved it away. I had to think, I had to make myself function through the most elation I’d ever experienced. “We-we have to get out of here now. It’s not safe. Where are the others? I don’t know what to do. I think I’m in shock.”

He nodded, his eyes narrowing. “The others are on Artemis. Come on. I’ve got you, Diana. I’ve got you.”

I grabbed my communicator and sent my mom a message. It was brief, unclear, but I hoped she got the gist that I had found one of my husbands and was getting on Artemis. I’d meet her on the planet. Or maybe I said nothing coherent. I didn’t know. Things were somehow both fast and slow; had the Station tilted?

Damian took my hand. His strong fingers held me tight, anchored me when things spun around us. “How did you get here?” I shouted to be heard over the crowd.

“Later.” He yelled back. “I-I can’t think. If you’re not safe, I’ll get you safe. Please.”

His words told me that I wasn’t alone in my brain shutting down to basic functions. Would it come back? I really didn’t know. I never could deny his please. We walked for what felt like forever but eventually made into the docking station. Artemis was three-quarters of the way down. Like they suddenly popped into existence, Sterling and Cash were talking outside of the ship, and I could hardly trust my own eyes. There they were. They were … there. I…

Sterling saw me first, or maybe he heard my heartbeat— I didn’t know which. He leapt into a run and had his arms around me in seconds. I hung on. What was he saying? Sorry? What was he sorry for? I pressed my forehead to his chest. His heart beat and beat and beat. I could hear it. Didn’t that make it real? And then I was being passed into Cash’s waiting hug. He said some things too. Love. Yes, I loved him, too. But I couldn’t think.

“Cash.” I touched his face. He felt real, not a hallucination.

I’d dreamed this moment a million times. I wanted to be in it. I shook my head. Why couldn’t I focus?

Lewis and Judge were suddenly there too. They were all hugging me, all touching me. There was so much noise.

I breathed out. “Hi.”

“She’s going to faint.” Lewis’ voice pushed through. “Let’s give her some air.” His arm was around my waist. “Come inside. Sit down. Someone go get her water.”

I was soon on one of the couches from Orion. It didn’t belong on Artemis. It was supposed to be on the other side of the universe. But then again, so were my husbands. They must have brought furniture onto Artemis. Strange, small details made their way into my mind while large, important things couldn’t get through. A blanket was around me, water in my hand, and they were all snuggled near me, either on the couch or the floor next to it.

I held out my hand. “We have to get off this station. I need to think. I keep saying that because it’s true. Um, I’m so happy you’re here. You can’t know.” My voice shook.

“I…”

Sterling kissed my cheek. He sat to my left. I leaned on Cash, who stroked my arm. Damian was right in front of me, kneeling down. Lewis and Judge were each touching my knees. They were so beautiful.

“Where do you want to go?” Sterling kissed my cheek again. “I’ll put in the coordinates.”

I had them memorized. My mother had insisted. Either I told him or Sterling had learned to read minds. He disappeared into the cockpit, likely to enter the designated coordinates and get us launched. Lewis took his place.

So begins a race across space, a race to be safe. Away from Mars Station and Sandler.

A sexy and hot reunion, as they learn each other again. Fun with family and more stress as yet more threats make themselves known.

A wonderful conclusion for Diana’s story, but I know there are more books ahead in this world of Artemis.
