Chicago 1982 is a goldmine for the construction industry, and Eric and his two business partners are thriving. Once nothing more than orphans in a Catholic boys’ home, they’ve overcome poverty and abuse to obtain success. Now living the lives they once only dreamed of, they’re sure of one thing: they will never look back.

Then the past returns, by way of a cheap polyester suit and a smile Eric has never forgotten—and all the dark memories come crashing back. Lucky for him, Jimmy has no idea who Eric is, or who Eric used to be…

For Gemma Green’s first time, things should have been straightforward. Find your subject, hold their gaze and push a thought into their head to save them from future disaster – Aversion complete. A pretty simple process given that the subject was to have no recollection of the experience. But Russ Tanner doesn’t seem to want to forget. In fact the more she tries to avoid him, the more he pushes to get to know her. Gemma knows she has a problem but is she facing the side effects of a failed Aversion or has the school’s tennis champ really fallen for her?

Haunted by the screams of the men he murdered, ex-Marine medic Riff Khora is serving a life sentence on board a prison ship. Seeking more punishment for his crime, he strikes a deal with the corrupt Captain Vidal—an exchange of pleasure and pain—and forges a new life leading the team that surveys space wreckage for salvage.

Ship engineer Zed Jakobsen’s psychometric abilities make prison a sentence worse than death, and the barrage of emotional stimuli is an unending torment. His only regret is that he didn’t kill the monster who sent him to prison, and only a glimmer of hope to escape a judgment he doesn’t deserve keeps him clinging to a brutal existence.

When they board derelict ship Pandora and discover a lone survivor, the hell of prison life plunges into abject horror. An epidemic of violence and insanity consumes their ship, driving the crew to murder and destruction. … [Read More ...]

I spent the week at Romantic Times convention, RT, and all I can say is, that was crazy. Time works differently at conferences and at RT, time is really warped.

There is so much to do at RT. The first day, Monday, there aren’t a lot of people there. There are people and there are activities and tours, but it’s not packed. On Tuesday it gets a little bit busier. Tuesday evening features two parties, Cinema Craptastic and the YA Spooky Slumber party. Both are awesome. Even if they change events on Tuesday night, they will put something awesome in the spots.

On Wednesday the track of classes and events starts. There are book signings, popup signings, promo lane, and much much more. Choosing what session you want to go to is nearly impossible.

Thursday has more of the same. There are so many wonderful event throughout the day. There … [Read More ...]
