W.I.P. it read good with SciFi author S.B.K. Burns + giveaway

W.I.P. - FLAT SPIN (scheduled to be out Spring of 2018) 
Jayde had a rough start to life. She never knew her parents. Well, maybe she did, one time when she was younger. Now all she knew was what the shrink on the military base where she’d been captive since her teenage years, told her. She had, somehow, rendered her phony agent parents unconscious, so she wasn’t really blameless, but working for a corrupt president to use her powers to kill a pesky downed pilot in some Chinese swamp wasn’t her style. 

So, even though part of the president’s black ops, clean-up squad, she refused to “off” the big beautiful, muscular astronaut with shave cut and astronaut eagle tattoo on his upper arm. This was the first real man she’d been anywhere near, and she was breathless. Or has her heavy breathing more to do with him dragging her through the cold swamp in escaping her black ops squad?

She was in her twenties but she knew she looked like an older teenager and he considered her a kid—a freezing kid who he wanted to get to some shelter so he could get her into a sleeping bag to share his heat. Would this be a chance to have an experience she may never get another chance at? Wary, she wasn’t sure what a real man like this one would be expecting from her.

Actual dialogue from WIP Flat Spin, a space opera romance: 

“My people will arrive soon,” he said.

Jayde wanted to question him on that and lots of other things, but he’d stuffed any remaining items in his duffel, slung it over his shoulder, and trudged on. Stopped. Turned.

“The sleeves are too long.” He waited for her to catch up, approached, and attempted to fold the overly long sleeves of his sweatshirt around her arms, his fingers dwelling there, perhaps comparing her dainty wrists to his robust ones.

Her hand traveled up his arm where his warm muscles stretched the sweater lining his new flight suit from wrist to elbow.

“Stop that,” he said.

“Stop? Oh, sorry. It’s just that you’re so…” His arms are almost as big around as my thighs.

“Yes, and you’re so …” He lifted her stick of an arm. “Now let’s get going.”

She’s Hume’n, a member of the lower class, with one chance to change her life…

In an alternate, twenty-first century Boston, Dawn Jamison is a hair’s breadth away from earning her doctorate degree—a degree that would allow her entrance into the upper class, to become the unemotional and self-disciplined Cartesian she is now only pretending to be. To reach her goal, all Dawn must do is overcome her forbidden attraction to the Olympic-class weightlifter Taylor Stephenson who’s just crashed her lectures on past life regression. She must also teach her group of misfit students how to travel back into their past lives—and, oh, of course, figure out how to save the great scientists of the early eighteenth century before they’re inextricably caught up in a time loop.

He’s Cartesian, a member of the upper class, and supposed to know better…

Coerced by his politically powerful, wheelchair-bound brother into spying on Dawn’s past-life regression classes, Taylor knows better than to give into his desire to claim Dawn as his own. But his past-life entity, eighteenth-century Colin, has no such inhibitions. When Taylor and Dawn meet up in Scotland in the 1700s, all the discipline he’s forced on his twenty-first-century self disintegrates in the past, leaving only his overwhelming lust for Dawn’s past-life double, Lily. Unable to escape their sexually obsessive past, Dawn and Taylor find themselves in a race against the clock at the epicenter of a world-altering time quake of their own making.

Excerpt Entangled:
Before Dawn had finished the second suggestive sentence of her self-regression, she was here in the misty Lowlands of Scotland, not far outside Edinburgh. As on her previous trips, she was literally in Lily’s body, experiencing all the woman’s senses and emotions, but none of her thoughts. So frustrating.

Fly Like An Eagle (Ages of Invention Series Book Two)

It’s 1824 Philadelphia at the opening of the Franklin Institute of Science, and one of its founders, Samantha’s father, wants her to marry his business partner, a much older man, to keep their war industry dealings secret.

Looking for a way out of the arranged marriage, tomboy Sam finds it in Eagle, the half Native American son of the man she is to marry.

Eagle brings Samantha into his spiritual world, his bimijiwan, in order that she might stop their father’s preparations for an ironclad Civil War at sea. To do this, Sam might have to convince Benjamin Franklin to abandon his kite experiment.

Excerpt Fly Like An Eagle:
Samantha had most probably escaped to the house. Migizi (Eagle) would return her shawl, hoping by the time he caught up to her, she would have put on something a little less fetching.

Her father had been wrong about him. Leaving me alone with Ronaldson’s nubile daughter? Look at her as a sister? He’d have more success taking flight by jumping off a cliff and flapping his arms.

About the Author:
