Now let’s hear more about the book!
ABOUT REGE’S RESCUE: Rege Rovnitov battled his way out of the darkest hell hole in the charted universe to become the best tracker in four galaxies. Fighting injustice, he and his brotherhood have spent their lives with one foot on the shady side of the law. When the daughter of one of his allies is abducted by slavers, he offers his skills to bring her home. On such a dark and dangerous mission, he never expected to find a woman full of goodness and light.
After years in the spotlight as an interstellar songbird, Amethe Madigan only wants to regain a normal life. Her plans are upended when a band of slavers take her captive and drag her to the galactic port known as Sin City. With Rege’s help, she narrowly escapes being sold to the highest bidder, or worse, turned over to whoever ordered her kidnapping. As they race across galaxies evading her mysterious abductor’s attempts to possess her, she makes the mistake of falling in love with a man whose idea of a normal life is anything but safe….Rege promised to rescue Amethe but she could be his salvation from a dark and lonely existence. In the end it won’t matter who saved whom. Where love is concerned, it’s winner takes all.
Now, let’s hear from Dena—and help her settle down from a major family milestone!
ON THE ROAD
by Dena Garson
My oldest son passed the driving test two weeks ago and now has his license. *sigh*
I’ve been preparing myself for this for over a year. Not only for the expense of adding a teenage boy to my insurance (*gasp*) but also the fact that he would be out in the world far more often than I want to think about. It was hard enough letting him go in the car when his best friend started driving. Not so much because I don’t think either of them will deliberately do something stupid. But I’ve seen the crazy people out on the road. I’m out there every day. People who think stop signs don’t apply to them. And even worse, distracted drivers.
Every time I see a wreck I think to myself, “That could be him next time.” The reality is it could be me next time. But for some reason, that thought doesn’t scare me nearly as much.
I know I have to let my little birdie go, that I should be encouraging him to leave the nest, but seesh! It sure is hard on a mother’s heart!
I guess I should be thankful he’s Earthbound and not piloting spacecraft into the next galaxy!
If any of you have suggestions about how to calm my anxiety, leave me a comment.
