I’m offering a copy of Captured, my sci fi romance with Siren.
So…follow along here…Have your read or seen The Princess Bride? The heroine and hero, Buttercup and Wesley are star-crossed lovers. They dislike each other, fight a growing attraction, and when they finally admit their true feelings, Wesley goes off to earn his fortune so he’ll be worthy of his true love. Unfortunately, he vanishes and Buttercup believes him to be dead, killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts. Apathetic, knowing she will never again experience true love, she agrees to marry the evil Prince Humerdinck. And then Wesley returns and the passion between Wesley and Buttercup reignite.
My husband and I lived through a similar story. We fell in love at a young age, were separated by time and distance, and had no contact whatsoever for six years. In the meantime, I married the evil Prince Humperdinck. The man who is my husband, the new Dread Pirate Roberts, returned and saved me. Our true story is every bit as romantic and harrowing as The Princess Bride. I’ll post it sometime!

Mari never expects to find herself caged in a cargo hold on a spaceship. She quickly learns from her captors she’s headed to the meat market. When they try to return her to hypersleep, she resists. After allowing her to stay awake, Mari realizes her survival depends on connecting with the male in charge, Ekkatt. She must make him see her as a sentient being or she will end up as dinner.
Ekkatt has never spoken to any human. They are valued for one thing, the money they bring at auction. The Attun race are vegetarians, but other species prize human flesh and bring in good money. Then the female with red hair speaks to him and forces him to admit she has a name. Mari throws Ekkatt’s entire life into question, the biggest question…can he watch her sold to the highest bidder?
Happy Valentine’s Week!
