Never trust a pirate–SFFS for July 27

Whew.

After a summer that’s been plagued with some serious personal issues, I think I’m finally back on track. Life goes on, as they say, and it’s time to get back to my book babies, making sure they’re all warm and loved.

I’m so proud to have had my books featured on this blog over the last few months–thank you, my friends! Now it feels like coming home. 🙂

cvr200x300triadToday’s snippet is from TRIAD. The Solarii have launched a daring, two-pronged rescue attempt of their man Monty Winston, who’s been captured by the space pirates. While the intrepid team goes through the sewer to break into the dungeon and get him, Stefan and Catava, posing as a slaver and his merchandise, try to distract the pirate leader and his men on the main level of the stolen Dragonfleet base. But somehow things just don’t go as they expect…

Weapon in hand, Stefan spun to face Marcand. He couldn’t figure out why the pirate hadn’t summoned his guards, but he suspected it was a matter of pride—he wouldn’t let a woman and a skinny trader beat him. “Let her go, Marcand.”

“She’s mine.” Marcand caught Catava’s neck again and turned her back to him, wrapping his sinewy arm across her throat, holding her between him and Stefan. “Back off, Philean, or she’s meat.”

The pirate sucked in deep draughts of air, still trying to catch his breath from her assault. “I knew something reeked of duplicity in this. Who is she, an assassin? Out to kill me for her DragonFleet revenge?”

Love it when a plan comes together, right? Ooops.

    “Back off, Philean, or she’s meat.”

    Great line! Cool characters.

  3. Oh, exciting!! Looks like I’m gonna have to introduce this to my TBR list….

  4. Looks like some confusion as to just who’s attacking.

  5. I agree…never trust a pirate. Hopefully things turn out for the best in the story. On the personal issues, life definitely seems to toss in a hand grenade now and then…

  6. Things never do go as planned, do they? Looks like there’s some action coming up…
