Happy Friday the 13th. Today’s date is historically one with negative connotations. Last year I believe I blogged something positive in hopes of adding an upbeat note amidst the gloom and doom. LOL. Today, I’m happy to share and continue that path with AWESOME news for Friday the 13th. SE Smith has a new release from her Alliance series. Hot stuff and fantastic cover 🙂
Razor’s Traitorous Heart by S.E. Smith
Kali Parks is a shadow in the war between two factions that are fighting to gain control of Chicago. Born and raised on the streets, she stands as a silent sentinel at her brother’s side as he battles to gain control. She will do whatever it takes to bring peace to those she has pledged her life to protect, including fighting against the creatures that came to their world almost six years before. Razor, a councilman for the Alliance, has been sent to oversee the remaining Trivator troops on Earth and make sure the transition for the induction of Earth into the Alliance goes smoothly. He is the one the Alliance calls when they have a situation that needs to be resolved once and for all. His reputation for dealing with difficult rebels is renowned. He asks no questions and takes no prisoners. His job is to eliminate all threats to the Alliance. He finds himself torn between duty and something he is unfamiliar with, his heart. When a shadow warrior saves his life and disappears, he discovers his world is no longer as cut and dry as he thought. The more he learns, the more he discovers he is not immune to the warrior’s passionate desire to fight to protect her people. Forced by duty to settle the conflict, he must decide between the Alliance and his own desire to claim the unwilling warrior. When the conflict escalates, he does the only thing he can; he makes a pact with one of the factions in exchange for a prize that will surely cause a battle of a different kind – the one for his traitorous heart. Will he be able to claim her before she escapes from him again? Or worse, will she sacrifice her life to protect those she loves before he can?
S.E. Smith is a USA Today Best Selling author and prolific writer of science fiction romance.
“As a child, I loved laying out under the stars and imagining what it would be like to travel to far off worlds. The one beautiful thing about having such a vivid imagination is seeing it as if I am really there. Now I get to let those images in my mind burst forth into words drawing a vivid picture that takes you away on a journey that would otherwise be impossible.
One thing I believe in is there is a heroine out there in all of us. One who is strong, compassionate, a little afraid to step out of her comfort zone but willing to take the chance, especially for something or someone she really believes in. My heroes, of course, learn they have met their partner. A strong hero knows how to feel emotions and is not afraid or ashamed of them. He might not always understand them but he is willing to live and learn.
Besides writing, I enjoy camping, traveling, and spending time with my family. I believe it is important to have balance in life although finding the balance is harder than it would seem especially when I disappear into the worlds of my characters. Luckily my own hero reminds me when it’s time to come back to Earth.”
