The underrealm was in turmoil with revelations of the evil that had taken root there.

It was no longer a safe haven for the Gaians.

Darius was a golden warrior dragon from an ancient clan. Evanora descended from the purple dragons of healing. They were destined to become fated mates four hundred years ago before Evanora was stolen from the heartland of the dragons.

Her dream of escape became the nightmare of reality.

Even in the light the past haunted her present.

Evanora’s soul was broken by her long years in captivity, until Darius started to fit the pieces back together again. Some fragments no long fit, some slotted into a different position, but the woman who emerged was stronger and more powerful than anyone ever imagined – the Gaian enchantress.

Was it too late for their love?

Or would Fate intervene to light their way to the future?

Sometimes love was the most powerful and dangerous magic...

Excerpt 2:
I spun, my tail knocking people across the room to snarl at my father. My wing descended to protect Evanora. There was no way anyone was taking her, they’d have to go through me first. I crouched low to pounce. Andreas studied my reaction to the threat, his eyes widening at all the revelations today.
Evanora squirmed from under my wing and stood in front of me, her hand on my chest. “I think I can handle this.” She prowled in front of me like a threatened tigress protecting her mate.
She snapped her fingers, and the elders levitated above the stage. Her right arm flung high in the air, and the emerald guards flew across the room by an invisible wind that herded them all in the corner beside Ruben.
Several of them tried to run, but the golden dragons cut off their escape route. A few emerald guards transformed into their dragons. Ruben leapt on one, his talons tearing through its protective scales as if they were nothing more than fine silk. His teeth tore the throat out of another.
A green dragon launched itself towards Evanora, and I pounced on it. My talons eviscerated it, his flesh steaming from the toxin Evanora had infused there to fight against the krakens. I’d never killed another Gaian—until recently I would have believed it was blasphemy—yet I never gave it a second thought because he had attacked my mate.
Ruben advanced on the others with murder in his amber gaze. They had attacked his mate, and I had no doubt every single emerald guard would suffer the force of his wrath for their actions. Panicked energy filled the air, and screams followed as more dragons emerged to try and fly to the doors at the top of the staircase. Some used their talons to climb the walls.
Ruben didn’t miss a beat. He rained fire on them, turning them all into heaps of steaming ash. The ferocious heat permeated the room, and every Gaian took a step back from the black death dragon.
The smell turned my stomach, and I tried not to breathe to limit my exposure to it. The cooking flesh reminded me of a dark fae party where they roasted whole pigs over open fires. Suddenly, turning vegetarian seemed like a good idea.
“You!” Evanora’s finger pointed directly at Cyrus. “Are a monster from the depths of hell.” She took slow deliberate steps towards him.
He swallowed and furtively looked to the side, taking a few steps back. The coward was searching for somewhere to escape to. He tried to lift his foot, but he seemed to be stuck where he stood. Apparently, he could only be brave if he had his women helpless due to a dragon suppressing collar.
Sensing the situation was under control, I returned to my human form. Ruben appeared at my side. He snapped his fingers, and we were both clothed in black.
With each flick of her wrist, lashes appeared on Cyrus’ body until he fell to his knees, his clothes in tatters. Evanora rubbed her hands together in a circular motion. His skin began to melt and peel down his body like a candle under the intensity of her stare.
“Even as you forgot them, I remember every one of their names, every terrified young girl you tried to impregnate with your evil spawn. Cyrus of the green dragons, I curse you from this day hence. You shall not rest in the afterlife but spend eternity in the realms of purgatory to experience the pain and suffering you have caused to others. Their agony will be yours, your body violated with their rapes, their torment only yours to bear.”
A BOOM shook the chamber, forming a crack across the ceiling. Wails sounded all around us before a black shimmering vortex appeared behind Cyrus. Shadow hands grasped his limbs and dragged him screaming into the darkness.
Stunned silence filled the room. Ruben’s hand grasped my arm, his eyes wide in alarm at what we’d just witnessed.
Evanora dusted her hands off and placed them on her hips. “Now what should I do with the elders who sanction rape, torture, and murder?”
Fuck that I was annoyed with her. I’d never seen anything more magnificent than Evanora go on a murderous spree. Her hair had a life of its own, moving around her as magic coursed through her. She took beauty into a different league.
I wanted her more now than ever before. She no longer looked frail and ready to break; her curves were accentuated in the deep purple gown that hugged every inch of her. When she released her magic, I swore I could see dark writing under her pale skin.
Evanora clicked her fingers, and the elders dropped to the ground, scrambling to get back on their feet. She chanted words from an ancient language that I didn’t understand. Energy pulsed towards the stage from the four directions of the wind, which Evanora summoned.
“Your dragons are bound inside you, unable to be released until the day you prove yourselves worthy to be a Gaian once more. You are nothing more than human, trapped in a realm that you can no longer leave,” she said. Her voice sounded remote and devoid of emotion.
Magic manifested in the air in a green mist. It twisted and swirled around the elders, stripping away their elder marks from their wrists. Evanora stalked through them, examining every single one of them until she seemed happy that they were bound by her enchantment.
“Next time you consider touching my mate, I would think again,” she hissed at them before strutting down from the stage. I’d never been more turned on in my life from her display of dominance.
“It’s time to go home.” Evanora opened a portal, indicating that Ruben and Justus leave through it.
My eyes met Andreas’. He nodded to let me know he would take care of everything.
Evanora grabbed my hand, and the world tilted off its axis for a few seconds before we re-materialised in my house.

She delved into the pages to go on an adventure with the characters, sparking a lifelong love of the literary world and story craft.

He couldn’t die without her, and he wouldn’t die with her. Not if she had anything to say about it.

The tide has turned in a centuries’ long war, and the Intergalactic Military has been tapped to step in and lend a hand. Sent to assist the Bo’Estrons, Captain Jelia Linh and her crew find themselves under immediate attack and in a fight for their own lives.

The rescue goes wrong, and ironically Kaxx must save the ones sent to aid them, but he isn’t expecting the feelings the female captain invokes.  The tingling sensation he gets when he touches her. It couldn’t be…could it? He’d missed his chance long ago.

The mission to help find the missing crewmembers is proving futile, as they’re all being picked off one bunker at a time. The battle is heating up, and it’s no longer about protecting their own. The Bo’Estron are fighting back, but with the Varnarians teaming up with the Hojinths, do they stand a chance? 

War. Betrayal. Enemies. Allies. Saviors. Mates.

Torn between duty and love, two become one.

Warning! Contains a hax and a soword, spaceships and blasters, freezing nights and blistering days, lumpy bumpy aliens and enemies with tentacles, underground bunkers, and an impossible merger that brings two species together in soul-searing passion and power.

Six on Sunday - JEXX, a Sensuous Sci-Fi Romance

Six paragraphs from JEXX, a sensuous sci-fi romance.

1.  Teelis backhanded his arm, then handed him one of the rags. “It had better be a good one, then. She and her squad came here to help us. How were they to know about the air mines? Plus…” He gestured behind him. “Her whole focus is on getting her men back. She’s not worried about saving herself, or haven’t you noticed that?”

2.  The physician nodded. After slipping the blood sample into his belt, he pulled out another instrument. “We stopped using titles like captain and general eons ago. Last test. I promise. I’m going to take a skin sample to check your DNA. I know we share a common ancestry, but we’ve had a few hundred years to adapt to this planetary system. I don’t know if you’ll be able to withstand any long exposure without the use of your safety suit.” He glanced down at where hers lay piled at her feet.

3.  It was too quiet. Unnaturally quiet. Even on the stillest nights, he should be hearing noises in the distance from the creatures that stalked in the darkness. He reached out, finding her shoulder, and gently shoved her behind him. At the same time, he pulled his hax from his belt. Looking back at her, he motioned for her to go back inside the bunker, and noticed she’d drawn her blaster. He gestured again and was answered with a vigorous shake of her head. Pressing against the wall, she took a stance that guarded his flank.

4.  Setting the skimmer down on the ground, she remained on the seat, dropping her hands to the dirt and laying her head on the gauge panel. She remained that way, barely aware of him moving toward her, until he laid a hand on her bare back. Incredibly, a surge of fresh energy went through her, like a massive second wind, and she opened her eyes to find him bent over, peering down at her.

5.  She scrambled over the broken tiles and panels to get back to where Kaxx was waiting by the back door. The Hojinth plowed through the debris as if it was tissue as it tried to come after them. The immense blob squelched and gurgled as it crossed the distance, sending out long, rope-like tendrils as it reached for her. Jelia barely managed to jump aside as the appendage slammed down on the ground where she’d been.

6.  She propped her soword against the tunnel wall and removed her clothing. Kaxx let his breeches drop to his ankles and unbuckled the straps holding his armor shoulder caps on, to allow her access to his body. Now that they knew how they were able to meld, he didn’t need to take off his mask or boots. Gazing back up into his face, she impulsively stood on her tiptoes to lift his face mask to kiss him. His mouth trembled beneath hers as he drew his arms around her. “Guess this is it,” she murmured, and bowed her head, pressing her forehead into his sternum. She felt a kiss to the top of her head. In the next instant, they were one.

A Tale of Two Covers





As any author can tell you, sometimes it’s difficult to find just the right model for the cover of your book. I was lucky to find not just the right model, but the perfect “warrior couple” for my book JEXX. But there was a small—or rather, “busty”—problem. The heroine has a belt covering the strategic areas of her breasts, but there’s still a lot left showing.

I initially placed the title on the lower right side of the cover. But after several retail sites began removing or hiding “objectionable” covers, I realized this one might cause problems. So I created an alternate version, with the title placed to where you couldn’t see much of her chest area. That second cover is the one uploaded to Amazon, B&N, etc. It will also be on the print edition.

However, fear not! If you’re wondering, the original cover can still be seen on my personal website and this blog, and in the PDF version of the ebook! Check it out at http://lindamooney.com/JEXX.htm if you’re curious. J

BEAUTY'S ALIEN BEAST Just Won a Science Fiction Romance Galaxy Award for 2018!

 

Best Out-of-Space Cop Award-Despite-the-Title

Linda Mooney has been writing a lot and for quite a while. Her newest book “Beauty’s Alien Beast” is the best one yet. 

A rough, yet honorable, female intergalactic cop with some fierce mental power, called psionic abilities, is on a break when she sees a beast-alien from a mining planet getting ambushed by vicious, little mean aliens called Kronners. Instead of being able to help him, the cop gets caught as well and knocked out. Both awake in a container. The beast can’t use his strength to get to the enemies, and she’s got an implant that sends shockwaves of pain through her brain when she tries to use her power. Worse, their prison cells are hooked up on an alien version of dark-net and they are forced to “entertain” subscribers. Of course, they escape — after all, it is a SCI-FI Rom, but that’s when it really gets interesting. What they had to do to stay alive is illegal and they are facing their own planet’s judgements, which is just as dangerous as the criminal mind behind the kidnapping who is still out to get them.

I loved everything about this book, though I think a different title would have been a better choice.
