This is an excerpt from my new book, “Hathor Legacy: Outcast” which is the first in a series.

In this snippet, Jonathan and Nadira have been pursuing a criminal who stole from a nearby mine and who might be responsible for killing Jon’s father, the mine CEO. While they were in pursuit, Jon accused Nadira of withholding important information about his father, and he abruptly left the inn where they were staying. Nadira followed him and now they’re meeting up. However, Nadira had to create a psychic connection with Jon in order to protect him, and that connection is creating a few issues for him.

Jon dashed over onto the sand-covered shoulder, getting out of the way before the cycle whizzed past. But instead of continuing down the road, it came to an abrupt stop, the metal wheels sending sparks flying.

Who the hell was driving that thing? The idiot could’ve run him over. He ran over to the vehicle just as the top lifted up and revealed who it was. Nadira stepped out, brushing herself off as she glared at him.

“Can’t you drive?” he demanded, as he slammed the top down. “You could’ve hit me.”

“If you were in the medi-evac, at least I’d know where the hell you were!” She smoothed her hair back.  “Why did you take off like that?”

“You know why!” he roared. “You should’ve trusted me. I had a right to know what happened to my father.” Damn, she was exasperating. Even now, he was having trouble resisting her. Pings of energy hit him like sparks, firing up his desire for her. 

“Stop that. You’re doing that Guardian thing again.” He took a step back, retreating as she moved closer. 

“Jon, you kept saying we were connected. Well, now we are. Do you think you can just walk away from that?”

About the book…

On the planet, Hathor, a powerful group called the Guardians serves as the security force for Novacorp, the corporation that runs Hathor with its ruthless monopoly. Nadira, as one of the most powerful Guardians, is expected to use her intuition and telekinetic powers to keep the capital city safe from thieves and intruders.
Jonathan Keel, son of a mine CEO on the nearby planet, Astarte, is wealthy, privileged and used to getting what he wants. When his father goes missing after a robbery and explosion at the mine, he defies the authorities and heads to Hathor to search for him and for the robbers.

Security is on high alert and Nadira is charged with protecting Jon. She rescues him from an vicious attack and discovers that the Guardians have another agenda that has nothing to do with solving the crime.

Jonathan finds evidence of his father’s possible involvement, while his attraction to Nadira forces her to confront all she has known about being a Guardian, especially the rule to put duty before her personal feelings.

Struggling with their growing desires, and chased by company security, Jon and Nadira flee the city. But solving the crime leads them to endure betrayals from the people closest to them, as secrets are revealed that not only link their pasts but also threaten to destroy Jon’s family and separate him from Nadira forever.

    Loved the "pings of energy" turn of phrase. A very dramatic scene, tense, clearly much is at stake, excellent excerpt!

    I was looking for a way to describe the energy between them that was both irritating and exciting. "Pings" seemed to have the right sound. 🙂 Thanks for your feedback!

    What a fun snippet! I like how she exasperates him and that's what gets him going.

    Yes, that describes it perfectly! He likes it and it makes him crazy at the same time. Thanks for your comments!
