Love Struck

by Casey Lea

Haze is a man on a mission. It was never his plan to be a gladiator, but plans change. When Harvesters steal his wife he tracks them down. It takes a year, all the money he has and most of his soul, but Silk is worth it. When he finds her she’s a slave, fighting for her life in the worst arena in space. His search is over, but his problems are just beginning. Haze has to face gigantic killers hardened by battle, feral beasts trained to stalk gladiators, weaponized weather and the most dangerous enemy of all – his wife.

Silk is a deadly fighter, so it’s too bad she doesn’t remember himâ?¦

Memory stripped and struggling to survive she has no interest in Haze. The idiot claiming to be her husband is just another target. One more body standing between her and freedom, but not for long. She’ll take down anything and anyone she has to.

Can Haze live long enough to win Silk’s love? Unlikely. It’s the end of the season and this is their last day in the arena. They’re about to enter the Carnival of Death, which leaves a single survivor. One of them has to die.

One Love. One Arena. One Day.

Alien Contact for Idiots

by Edward Hoornaert

WHAT’S A WOMAN GONNA DO …

When American Indians from the future move their entire island nation to our Earth, Ell Harmon makes the first alien contact. The take-charge Seattle biologist has yearned to find intelligent aliens, and her dream comes true when she meets Prince Tro Eaglesbrood.

Ell and Tro are quarantined together, while the fearful world wonders whether the newcomers are friends or foes, neighbors or conquerors. Ell knows Tro is honorable and Kwadrans are peaceful â?¦ but how to convince the world?

… WHEN SHE’S QUARANTINED WITH AN
OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD ALIEN?

They broadcast a show, which she flippantly titles Alien Contact for Idiots. Every day, Ell interviews Tro and tries to humanize Kwadrans. The show is wildly popular, and the romance developing on-screen between Ell and Tro reassures the world. If a smart woman like her can fall for a Kwadran, they must not be monsters, right?

But Tro’s duty lies with his people, and soon that duty threatens not only the show but Ell’s heart — as well as the peace and survival of our world.
