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 arrived at the house where the person who robbed the mine has been hiding. They expect to be able to solve the crime and turn the thief over to security. But the security team has also arrived at the house and they have other plans for everyone inside.
“What the hell?” Jonathan threw himself across her. His body protecting her as another window blew out. Stunner fire echoed across the grounds, followed by the sound of a scream.
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.

Exciting as always, Deb! OUTCAST is on my TBR list, which I'll be getting to after this term ends.

Thanks, Heidi! I'm busy working on book 2 in the series. So perhaps by the time you have the chance to read this book, book 2 will be waiting. 🙂

Wow, this is a very dramatic sequence and you've described it all so well, I could really see the action as I was reading. Terrific excerpt!

Thanks, Veronica! In the past when I wrote short stories, I didn't include many visual descriptions. But with this novel I realized I had to do more showing and much less telling. Glad to hear it worked in this scene.
