‘Your brass is ballsy, Kage Sable.’ – Harlow Meridien.
Running from her past, Harlow lives for the present. She’s sassy-smart-strong. A genius, generous, confident scientist developing a groundbreaking propulsion technology that’s attracted the attention of The Sable Group, and Kage Sable, to be exact.
He’s a master builder, an ex-warrior, a kick-ass engineer with sexy nerd energy and her new ‘boss’. His shop is responsible for an enviable fleet of high-tech corvettes, luxury flyers and racing pinnaces – helping to cement the Sable Riders’ dominance across Pegasi.
Convinced she’s the woman for him, Kage is determined to make Harlow his. He strongly believes every superwoman needs a superman. Problem is, she’s not so sure. She’s got a bad history with men. All she wants to do is focus on her work that could shift the balance of power in the Pegasi System.
She’s wary of Kage’s moxie and full-on thrust at life and love and doesn’t think she’s ready for that much intensity yet. But he slowly draws her in, one delicious moment at a time.
From subterranean speakeasies, sunken casinos and ancient ruins to fighting dens and exquisite eateries, Kage takes Harlow on dizzying flights of pure bliss across Eden II to convince her he’s light years from the ‘lame, always running game’ losers of her past. Instead, he’s a real man with strong convictions and the best intentions, who believes in an impossible love.
Together, they’ll fight for the relationship they want while keeping their top-secret breakthrough from a swarm of greedy, ruthless galactic hustlers. Together, they’ll fall into a twilight dusk of heady love and impossible starlight.
If you’re in the mood for:
- A strong, smart heroine AND a sexy, badass anti-hero
- Unrequited love and personal growth sagas that span a universe
- Steamy, hot epic jolts!
- Paranormal action
- All the feels AND heartfelt escapism
Then take to the Skies Above Eden II. A whole new world awaits you.
‘You know Shadow, Kage or whatever they call you -,’ she started.
‘Feels like I’m about to get a beating,’ he drawled. ‘Out with it, Harlow.’
‘Fine. I’m still pissed off that you didn’t announce yourself earlier. I find it rude that you were hanging around while I was on my date.’
‘Excuse my efforts in keeping you safe from unknown threats,’ Kage rumbled with a glimmer in his eye. ‘Why so peeved? Was he your boyfriend?’
She narrowed her eyes at him, neither denying nor confirming his speculation.
‘You don’t need a boyfriend,’ he drawled on, unconcerned. ‘Specially one who’s such a controlling toxic asshole. What you need is a man. Who’s secure enough to appreciate your beauty as it is and let you eat in peace.’
Harlow’s head swivelled, and she nailed him with a long, unsettling look. ‘Is that right?’
‘Tis, and you know it,’ the man muttered smartly.
Harlow stopped what she was doing and pointed her finger at Kage. ‘Yet another man telling me who I should be and how I should think.’
‘Cept he was wrong, and I’m right.’
Suddenly Harlow felt the same emotion that had consumed her at the restaurant wash over her again. She was unable to stop the rush of words out of her mouth. ‘Why do you men always claim to be arrogantly right? That’s why I’m done with you all.’
Kage paused mid-beer pull. He cocked an eyebrow in disbelief. ‘All men?’
‘All! I made myself a promise tonight, no men for a very long time.’
‘How long?’ he taunted, his eyes narrowing.
‘As long as it bloody takes. Forever if necessary.’
He gave her a speculative look. ‘You won’t last long,’ he drawled.
‘And how would you know?’
‘Because you’re one hella beautiful woman. You deserve the best loving.’
‘There you go. Judging me and my happiness by my looks.’
‘I wouldn’t dare.’
‘You just did, though. You said I’m -,’ Harlow paused, suddenly nonplussed as she realised the full force of his unexpected compliment. ‘- Beautiful.’
‘That’s coz you are. And smart from the looks of things.’ He settled deeper into the couch, a smirk playing on his lips.
I’m a lover of words, and consequently an author, writer and consumer of all things delicious, fun and courageously life affirming.
