Six on Sunday - LOVIN' LARGE, Erotic Sci-Fi/Paranormal/Futuristic Romance

 Six on Sunday

Six paragraphs from LOVIN' LARGE, an erotic sci-fi, paranormal, futuristic romance by Linda Mooney writing as Carolyn Gregg.

1. When you wake up, you’ll have no idea how you got here, or why, he silently told the creature. But trust me when I say, you’ll be instrumental in bringing your species back from the brink of total extinction. Welcome to the twenty-second century, young lady. Welcome to a world that shouldn’t exist, but does.

2. “But we’re looking at bigger and maybe badder animals. We could be looking at apex predators. Hell, there’s all kinds of big-ass critters we’ve yet to receive, just because of the weight restriction.”

3. “Wait!” Holden Crow waved an arm. Everyone looked over at the man responsible for shipping the specimens to their new homes. The guy glared at Westfall. “The way it was explained to us how the Grabber worked was that it literally set a trap on the ground in a time prior to when the planet passed through that comet’s tail.” He held out his hand parallel to the ground with the palm up. “Any animal that walked onto the trap was then captured.” He curled his fingers, as if holding a ball. “And sent the animal to the Receiving Room. The amount of power given to the Grabber determined how big an animal it was able to transmit. That was proven back when they first upped the percentage, and they began bringing in deer and goats instead of rabbits, and cats, and lizards. Are you telling us now that the increase in power also determined how far back in time it was able to grab things?”

4. The dinosaur was melting into the floor. No, not melting. Changing. Reforming. Reshaping. Until the figure of a naked woman lay on the cold tiles where a raptor had been moments before.

5. Asa moved up close to the older man, nearly getting into his face. “Listen to me for damn minute, will you? What I’m telling you is the truth. The videos will back me. The Grabber brought back a dinosaur. Some kind of raptor, from what I could tell. But as soon as it keeled over, it turned into a woman.” He slowly shook his head. “I sound like I’ve lost it, but I’m dead serious, Derris. That naked woman was brought back from the past, and she’s a fucking dinosaur.

6. “Saw-ree,” she parroted. Her face grew stern. His answer didn’t satisfy her. With a suddenness that shocked him, she transformed into her raptor persona and slammed her body into the wall. Asa instinctively jumped back, but the inner barrier held firm. She bared her teeth at him in a clear threat display, but she didn’t try to breach the wall a second time. She morphed back into her human form. It took all of a handful of seconds.  “Eesoo maydraw!”
