Earth in the year 2275 is a playground for the rich while the rest of the population is scattered throughout the colonies in the system.  Engineered humans called Boxies are the labor force.  Their lives are bound by a set grid of allowed travel where they work and reside in each of the major cities.  To add empathy to the Boxies they were assigned a variety of small AI pets but the experiment failed.  The Boxies began to show concern for others, to think beyond their training so their pets were recalled to be shut off.  The government was obviously perplexed by the rash of Boxie suicides and other disruptive behaviors.

 

A Boxie in the Australian tower, Dex742A-GR23 who designed and worked on deep space starships was assigned a generic AI house cat as his pet.  Dex named the cat Manx and hid his best friend when the recall was announced.  He quietly gathered every credit he had coming and fled the city with Manx hidden inside his jacket.  Paying for passage aboard a pirate ship Dex and Manx planned to take refuge on one of the far colony planets.

 

Dex was soon to learn that fate had different plans for the gentle human and his cat.  Plans that would take them across the system and back with the most wanted people in the galaxy.  The Boxie would discover what love truly meant and why hatred was pointless.  Earth would be changed…by a Boxie and the man he loved.

 

Readers are treated to a high octane, sweeping adventure in Song of Song.  The disparity between the wealthy and everyone else is never more evident than in this riveting space drama. Can’t help falling in love with Dex and the rest of the characters are just as interesting in their own way.  Fascinating twists will keep everyone guessing as Song of Song unfolds and tells its tale.  This futuristic story has it all.

BROKEN ALPHA by DC JurisBroken Alpha by DC Juris
Series: An Alpha Omega Story
Published by Torquere Press Genres: MM, Science Fiction

One year ago Presidian ship’s captain Korden Encarit received word his brother Rennett was missing and presumed dead after a classified engagement.  The two Alpha brothers had been closer than anyone except their best friends had known.  When the mental link they shared was severed Korden knew his beloved Rennett was gone.

 

Out of the blue Rennett is suddenly found, a prisoner to their enemies.  The Presidian is no longer the strong man he once was and Korden is faced with a broken Alpha.  His brother has become an omega who doesn’t know how to act, desperate for someone to guide him as an omega.

 

Brotherly love takes on new meaning for Korden and Rennett.  Mating with the omega will mean the end of his career, his position as captain of the North Star.  Sibling lovers are frowned upon though not forbidden in their culture.  Besides, what choice does Korden have?  Rennett won’t last long without an Alpa of his own.  New meaning indeed.

 

Broken Alpha explores a unique situation and manages to rise above the ashes.  Korden and Rennett deliver a surprisingly adult romance considering the subject matter.  And though the brothers eventually become lovers the ‘ick’ factor doesn’t really come into play.  Intense emotions drive Broken Alpha and keep the reader thoroughly involved.  The unsettling plotline evolves into a thought provoking story that, in the end, actually succeeds.

Agnor is the newest Starlord and also a captain of the newest starship, and as such, he was able to hand-pick his crew.  Agnor was very exacting when picking out just who would man his ship with him during their first voyage.  He is well aware that a few of his picks shocked, but Agnor knew what he was looking for.  One of his most shocking picks was for his Loadmaster, a very shy and young girl named Betsua.

 

Betsua was as amazed as everyone else when she was offered the job, but she jumped for the chance to leave her aunt’s house and her boring job.  Betsua has used her telekinesis to help her do her job, but she has been hiding just how strong that talent is, and that isn’t the only thing she has been hiding.  Betsua is worried what will happen to her life if her secrets become known.  She has always been on the outside of life looking in, and she isn’t sure she can handle being even more of an outsider.

 

Agnor knew that Betsua was shy, but he was not about to let that keep her from making friends with her shipmates or to stop him from exploring the attraction he has felt towards his newest shipmate.  Betsua allows herself to become involved with her captain, and soon learns just what she was missing both in friendship and passion, and how it affected her already strong talents.  Agnor knew there was something very special about Betsua, and he learned just how correct he was when the ship’s real secret mission was revealed.  By the time they are heading back home, Betsua and Agnor will have begun to break the back of the enemy, and their entire world will know just how extraordinary Betsua really is—something Agnor knew even before her talents came out in the open.

 

A newly minted Starlord and a young Loadmaster will discover love and the secret that lets their enemy control talents in Shy Talent.  I already knew that Agnor was both intelligent and caring, so I wasn’t surprised by how he picked his new crew.  Nor was I surprised when he took Betsua, not only under his wing, but also to his bed when he learned the attraction was mutual.  I enjoyed watching as Betsua bloomed as her relationship with Agnor grew and also with her shipmates.  I really loved how Agnor’s confidence and support gave Betsua the confidence to use all of her talents to help destroy their enemy and bring a new and safer future to their universe.  Shy Talent brings the end of an arc in which Council worlds end their enemy, the Collective, while giving two very special people a love to last the ages.  I found it full of passion, the making of lasting friendships, and the perfect amount of suspense.

TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER by Caitlin RicciTo the Highest Bidder by Caitlin Ricci
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Science Fiction

Becoming a Star Pilot was the sky high wish of Thierry Leroux.  Of course it was a complete pipe dream because there’s no way he could afford to go even though he’d passed all the exams and gained admittance.  Thierry and his older brother were orphans surviving on Corbin’s talent as an aspasian or high priced companion and certainly didn’t have the credits to pay for the Intergalactic Star Pilot Academy.

 

When Corbin comes up with an outrageous way to make the necessary funds Thierry agrees.  He’s going to sell his virginity to the highest bidder.  The auction and the actual deflowering can all be done on the planet Wish with Corbin’s boss Monroe handling the whole thing.

 

Who knew Thierry’s virginity would be so popular and profitable because he makes enough to pay for everything at the Academy.  The only stipulation is that his benefactor remain masked and anonymous.  Thierry’s mystery man treats the virgin gently and makes the evening a night he’ll never forget.  Their time together was so special that when Thierry’s benefactor asks to meet again weeks later the Star Pilot student jumps at the opportunity.  Each time they meet he falls a little further.  If only he knew who was behind the mask.

 

One young man’s life is irrevocably changed after being sold To the Highest Bidder.  This futuristic tale begins with a hope and a dream and evolves into a risky relationship.  The truth however doesn’t set Thierry free.  And he’s the only one who hasn’t figured out who the masked man is.  Nevertheless the emotional drama builds well throughout and gives the reader a satisfying end.  To the Highest Bidder offers a unique relationship story that works, and works well for Thierry and his man.

Series: The Master and Servant #3
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: BDSM, Futuristic, MM

In his last year as a college student Brand figured his chances to be called upon as a Servant go unanswered.  Soon to reach the cut off age Brand is stunned to be told that he’s finally been chosen.  With little time to get his affairs in order Brand receives his instructions and travels to an unknown location where he will spend the next few years as a twenty-four/seven submissive to an unknown Master.

 

Arriving at his destination Brand deduces he’s in New Orleans.  Taken inside a dark mansion he undergoes an intense sexual game with four unknown strangers at the command of his mysterious Master. Lucky for Brand the stranger he enjoys most is the man who has bound them together as Servant and Master, action adventure big screen star Zane Wooding.

 

The Dominant actor has particular sexual tastes and wants someone who can’t ruin him in the press.  Zane is also looking for a real D/s relationship rather than a fawning fan pretending.   Master and Servant begin to explore and enjoy what they have between them.   Certainly there will be some bumps along the way, but neither expects another to pervert their relationship.  The stakes have been raised.  Winner takes all.

 

Celluloid Cage is a down and dirty in your face carnal story.  The third installment in the Master and Servant series takes a look at the relationship between a submissive college student and a well known popular Dominant actor.  A plausible storyline links from one heavily erotic scene to the next.  Looking for a hot and heavy story? Celluloid Cage is the answer.  The downside is that the whole Master and Servant plot point is never really explained, no helpful back story either.  Never gross – definitely raw.
