Book Description:

Finding one’s psi-mate is something every Sandarian hopes for, but when Ian Cavacent accidentally starts the bonding process with the Earthling, Dani, he has to fight his desire with every ounce of his being. If the process is completed, it would be both political and financial suicide for Ian and his family.

A natural klutz, Dani somehow always manages to land on her feet and win those mixed martial arts matches she’s so fond of. At home on Cat Island her balance is thrown when bazillionaire Ian takes notice.

Unfortunately some butt-ugly Torog aliens also take notice sending her life spiraling out of control and into Ian’s arms. But Dani isn’t the type of woman to let some alien voodoo decide her future or her mate…no matter how gorgeous the man is or how much pleasure he gives her.

For centuries the Cavacents have mined Earth for a precious element, carnium, while protecting the planet from other alien species.

Thanks to the Torogs, Dani and Ian must flee to Sandaria. As Dani learns to use her newfound psi powers, the empire crumbles around them.

Will their love be strong enough to keep them alive and get them back to Earth?

Excerpt Alien Attachments:

“Earth Protector? You’re kidding right?”
“No. Pretty much what it sounds like. Cliche as it may be, we are not alone in the universe.”
Dani held Jared’s gaze. She’d heard what he said, but couldn’t process the words. They sat on her brain like little beings, patiently waiting to be let in. Knock, knock. Dani let out a nervous laugh. Maybe if I ignore them, they’ll go away. Jared didn’t blink. Or maybe not.
“So you’re not an EP?”
“Nah, I’m human, just like you. I’m what they call a Support Agent, or SA for short. I do what I can for Ian and the other EPs, but I’m based with Ian.”
“So you’re a spy.”                    
“Support agent, not secret agent,” Jared said. “Although, we are a secret.”
“You’re a spy for aliens.”
“Stop it. It’s not like that.”

Ria Montori is no stranger to kicking a*s. Though petite in size, she packs a punch as a former Sandarian military officer who currently serves the Cavacent clan on a strange planet called Earth. She has no interest in seeking her one psi-mate who could bring her unparalleled pleasure through a sensual, otherworldly bond. She has no time for a lover of any kind. So why is she lured in by the beguiling Curzan native who just killed a government official?

Ty Sordina hates Ria’s kind. The Sandarians murdered his parents while he watched and enslaved his people. Driven by revenge, he vows that nothing and no one will stand in his way. Especially not a feisty redhead who challenges his every instinct and calls to his psi like no other.

But war is coming. And the two must succumb to temptation for only the power of their completed bond can defeat and destroy the enemy. But only if they surrender…

Excerpt 1 Rebellion :
“Have any interesting dreams, Red?”
   “Don’t call me Red. I’m just here to find out what this means.” She lied. She knew the second she entered the room what it meant. He was the one. Her psi-mate. A cold blooded killer.

Cover Artist: Nathalie Gray of Kanaxa Designs  

Book Description:

Following the signal of foreign psi to an old abandoned building on Florin 5, Balastar Alder literally stumbles across the pugnacious raven-haired beauty, Kit Athorika.

He’s not the only one who’s looking for the mysterious portal making devices in her possession. When Torogs attack, she ports them to safety. Without the help of a single Portal Master.

Balastar offers to repay the favor by getting her off-planet and back to her own ship. Their escape is complicated when the Torog’s pursue. Forced to go silent and lay-low in an asteroid field, they have little to do. Fortunately, the chemistry between them ignites and they find endless ways to occupy their time.

Balastar convinces her to come and meet his boss, Lord Cavacent. Recently relocated to Earth, the Sandarian clan included a handful of rogue Portal Masters. Kit has her own reasons for hating and fearing the Portal Masters, but she needs all the help she can get to save her planet. She reluctantly agrees to seek out Lord Cavacent’s help, and his connections to the Galactic Trade Organization and its powerful military.

The Portal Masters’ Guild on Sandaria has controlled intergalactic portals throughout the galaxy for centuries, and jealously guard their secrets. One of those secrets has kept Kit’s home world under quarantine for nearly thirty years.  But portals across the galaxy are failing and the guild is getting desperate.

Finding themselves bonded wasn’t expected, but having a psi-mate had its advantages. Can they free an entire planet and take down a guild as old as the  Masters without losing their lives?

Excerpt 1 Liberation:

It's going to be tight."
"I like it tight." Balastar rode an adrenalin high. He hit the thrusters and dove for it. They had one shot. She was either crazy or brilliant, he didn't know which, but their lives depended on her being right and his ability to control this ship.

About the Author:

A lifelong lover of books, Sabine grew up on Science Fiction, Fantasy and Romance novels. As a child she wanted to be an astronaut and travel the stars looking for aliens. As an adult she’s seriously disappointed we’ve yet to establish so much as a moon base (although she gives a hearty nod to the ISS) and is pretty sure Humans aren’t ready to meet ET.

An Electrical Engineer and Cultural Anthropologist by training, she's a geek with heart. She’s lived in more states than she cares to admit and loves to travel. When not in far off lands, you can frequently find her walking the local beaches and plotting her next adventure.   

Sabine lives in Florida with her husband, kids, cats and an increasingly large mess of characters in her head.

Hi and thanks for having me today!
Where are you from?
You’d think this would be an easy one, right? Ha. I was born in St. Louis, MO but never lived there. Anchored in Phoenix AZ till I was 10 or 11 so I feel like that’s where I grew up. It was about then that my recently divorced mom started working for the VA Hospitals and we moved. CA, CO, UT, ID, TX. Back to Phoenix for college, back to CA after for first real job at Pyramid Technologies, then to Tucson for a number of years working my way up at Artisoft. Met future (and current) hubs there and we moved to Boston. Have since lived in CA, FL, back to MA and finally back in FL… We’re very bouncy people.
Tell us your latest news?
I’ve wrapped up the Alien Attachments series (for now…Supreme Commander Torill Macon won’t stop yakking at me. He wants me to tell the story of how Earth ended up surrounded by the massive Sandarian fleet and all those refugees. Makes sense since his son is the MMC in my short story, Alien Bond…).
Now I’m back in world-building mode. Humans share a planet with the Sensari and shape-shifting Dragons. The Sensari don’t shift, but they have wings and they fly. Hot dudes with wings. Yummy. I’ll have at least the first two books out this year, maybe three.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I came late to the party. On a flight home from London back in October of ’03 I had a dream. Spent the rest of the flight furiously fleshing it out in a notebook. That turned into a contemporary romance. I next wrote a middle grade fantasy (so my kids could read something I wrote, ha ha). I then attended my first writers con and realized I didn’t know squat about writing. Ten years, dozens of cons and workshops and even more craft books and critique groups later I got my first contract for Alien Attachments. Since March of 2014 I’ve published Rebellion, Liberation, and a short story, Alien Bond. Writing isn’t something you learn how to do and are done with. Not for me anyway. I’m always reading a craft book and going to workshops. So, to answer your question (that took forever, didn’t it?) probably when I went to Florida Writers Association’s annual conference and found a home. Writing wasn’t a hobby anymore it was an obsession.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Kind of. Everything I’ve written has what I call a dream seed in it. I remember way too much of my dreams. I think, for the most part, it’s a good thing, but some dreams…
Anyway, for Alien Attachments it was the pool scene in the beginning with Dani and Ian. I was Dani, I felt that connection and it was awesome.
In Rebellion, it was the scene where Ria visits Ty in jail and realizes her psi-mate is a murderer. That really sucked. The pool was much more fun.
In Liberation it was the very opening scene. We’re in a building, five, six floors up and aliens are outside in their craft trying to blow us to pieces. I don’t know why this hot guy is here, but he appears to be trying to help. Until he stuffs me down the laundry chute. I’m claustrophobic. That sucker scared me awake.
I hope every one is having a great start to the new year, Cheers!
