Code Name Jack Rabbit

Code Name Jack Rabbit by Elizabeth Noble

Where Legend and Myth Meet Science and Technology

Excerpt:

Lucas decided it was his good luck—no, it was a real blessing—neither Declan nor Forge could read his mind. Right now he wanted to kill them both. Lucas could do it too. Ten minutes wolfed out was all he needed. Vampires might be faster, but werewolves were stronger.

Being in a surveillance van with three vampires wasn’t the fun and excitement one might expect it to be. Lucas liked Kai, but he was sure Ori would agree that in this circumstance, Kai would have to die too.

Forge was pacing, at least as well as a man could inside a van with three other decently sized men. Lucas was leaning against one side, gazing at a camera feed, and doing his best to stay out of the way and not strangle Forge.

Declan put both hands on Forge’s shoulders and said, “Jonas, he’ll be fine.”

“He’s never done anything like this.” Forge turned and stared at the monitor. “Damn, I wish I could see him and not just hear him.”

“Jonas, it’s a pizza parlor, and she’s a research scientist. What the hell can she do to him?” Declan asked. Forge and Kai both turned to look at him. Declan heaved a sigh and shoved Forge into the seat beside Kai. “Relax. You can hear every word they say and feel what Blair feels. If anything goes wrong, you’ll know it practically before he does. You and I muddled through information collection with far less support and lived.” Declan rolled his eyes and focused on Lucas.

“I should go out there and back him up. In case.” Forge started to stand, but Lucas helped Declan push him back down.

“In case of what? They run out of pepperoni?” Lucas asked.

“She might recognize you,” Kai said. “You’re the head detective of this town. There is no need to take the risk someone will recognize you and blow everything. Besides, when making contact with someone with the express purpose of entering some sort of relationship with them, having your bond mate hanging around a few feet away is a bad idea.”

“He speaks from experience,” Ori chimed in and chuckled.

“You all do realize I can hear you, right?” Blair’s voice was crisp and clear coming from the speaker.

“Heads up. There she is. She’s about to walk through the door,” Kai said. He pointed to the monitor. “Got to love predictable people.”

ELIZABETH NOBLE lives by the adage “I can’t not write.” She doesn’t remember a time when she didn’t make up stories and eventually she learned how to put words on a page. Those words turned into books and fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M fiction. A part of every day is spent living in worlds she created that are filled with intrigue and espionage. She has a real love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural.

When she’s not chronicling the adventures of her many characters, Elizabeth is a veterinary nurse living in her native Cleveland, Ohio. She has three grown children and now happily shares her little, brick house with a spunky Cardigan Welsh Corgi and his sidekick, tabby cat. Elizabeth is a fan of baseball, basketball (go Cavs and Cleveland Baseball) and gardening. She can often be found working in her ‘outside office’ listening to classic rock and plotter her next novel waiting for it to be dark enough to gaze at the stars.

Elizabeth has received a number of amateur writing awards. Since being published, several of her novels have received Honorable Mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Jewel Cave was a runner-up in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category in the 2015 Rainbow Awards. Ringed Love was a winner in the Gay Fantasy Romance category of the 2016 Rainbow Awards.

Hearts Repaired

Blurb:

Hearts Repaired (Professions of Love #1)

A confident doctor. A sexy mechanic. A May/December romance to fall in love with.

Lawrence Barnsdale was stunned when he woke up next to a much younger man. This wasn’t his style. This wasn’t him. He knew the relationship was doomed when he realized that Curtis was smart, funny and an accomplished doctor. Why would Curtis be interested in an over-the-hill mechanic?

Curtis knew from the night they first met that Lawrence was the kind of guy he could have a future with. If only he could convince Lawrence that the age difference didn’t matter.

Hearts Repaired is the first book in a May/December contemporary gay romance series. If you like second chances, real men, and finding a connection, then you’ll love this new series by Caraway Carter.

Buy Hearts Repaired to discover the men of Professions of Love today! This was originally published as The Doctor & The Mechanic, but has been rewritten and is now a 49k novel.

Book 2, Hearts Redesigned will be released April 13th and will be available for Pre-order soon. There is also a sneak peek at the end of Hearts Repaired.

Excerpt:

Curtis lay watching the other man in the room gather his clothing, admiring the shape of his shoulders, remembering feeling protected when he held on to them. Lawrence bent to pick up a pair of black socks and his shoes.

Curtis grinned as Lawrence stood in the room looking for one article that was missing.

“You don’t have to rush out the door,” Curtis said.

“Don’t I?” Lawrence brushed the clothes from the chair to the floor and took a seat. “Oh Lord, you are young.” He ran his hand through short salt-and-pepper hair.

“Come back up here.” Curtis patted the sheet beside him.

Lawrence shook his head. “I don’t know what I was thinking. I bet I’m old enough to be your grandfather.”

“Hardly,” Curtis chuckled and sat up against the headboard. “I’m not as young as you think.” He winked. “Besides, what does it matter? It wasn’t an issue last night. I don’t think either of us thought about age. I seem to remember us both passing out satiated.”

“Aha!” Lawrence lifted his boxer-briefs off the floor with his toe. “I had a heart attack when you began kissing down my neck. I’m not used to men being so forward.”

Curtis bent over and grabbed the underwear away.

“Hey!” Lawrence said, reaching for them and missing.

Curtis backed up, taunting him with the underwear. “Hey, what?”

“Give me those,” Lawrence said indignantly. “Come on.”

Curtis grinned. The handsome, older man was probably used to getting his way, but it wasn’t going to happen this time.

“Nope.” Curtis shook his head to match his word. “I’m being forward again. You’ll get these when you get back up here.” He patted the spot beside him again.

Lawrence rolled his eyes. “Aren’t you going to be late for class or something?” He leaned over Curtis and grabbed at the striped boxer-briefs, then sat down empty-handed on the edge of the bed.

“Ah-ah-ah,” said Curtis, wagging his finger with a grin. “I didn’t say when you’d get them, just that you would—eventually.” Curtis glanced at the phone on the nightstand. “I don’t have to be at work until noon.” He tucked Lawrence’s shorts under his pillow and went back to revisit the neck he’d enjoyed the night before. Lawrence shivered.

“But seriously, what time is it? I’ve got an early appointment today.”

“Then you can reschedule it.” Curtis continued kissing down his shoulder, looking for the spot that had made Lawrence moan last night.

“No, I really c-can’t,” Lawrence stammered, his eyes fluttering closed in spite of himself. “Oh, God, that feels nice.”

“Well, that’s good, because it’s supposed to,” Curtis said, as his lips got to the inside of Lawrence’s elbow.

Lawrence moaned just the way Curtis was hoping.

Curtis raised an eyebrow. “If I tell you, will you stop trying to get dressed?”

Lawrence considered. “Yes,” he allowed after a long, drawn-out pause.

“It’s just now quarter-to-seven. How early is that appointment?” God, why am I up so early?

“Not that early,” Lawrence said, giving in. He pulled his legs up and lay back, outstretched. “It’s a good thing I didn’t get a stitch of clothing on.”

“Yeah, it’ll make this a lot easier.” Curtis bent over Lawrence, kissing along his neck to his chest, and slipped between Lawrence’s legs. His tongue snaked around each nipple before continuing down to Lawrence’s flat stomach. Above and under him, Lawrence drew in breath between his teeth, a long, sensuous hiss.

Pressing against the lengthening cock beneath him, Curtis licked his lips. “I want some more, old man,” he said.

“I have to know how old you are,” Lawrence said unsteadily as Curtis picked up speed. “I—I might not have done the math right. What are you, twenty-five, twenty-eight?”

“Law, you’re hilarious. I’m out of school, trust me.”

The Stark Divide

Yes, I know it’s not my usual day for a blog post, but I’m helping J. Scott Coatsworth celebrate the release of his new book.

Blurb:

Some stories are epic.

The Earth is in a state of collapse, with wars breaking out over resources and an environment pushed to the edge by human greed.

Three living generation ships have been built with a combination of genetic mastery, artificial intelligence, technology, and raw materials harvested from the asteroid belt. This is the story of one of them—43 Ariadne, or Forever, as her inhabitants call her—a living world that carries the remaining hopes of humanity, and the three generations of scientists, engineers, and explorers working to colonize her.

From her humble beginnings as a seedling saved from disaster to the start of her journey across the void of space toward a new home for the human race, The Stark Divide tells the tales of the world, the people who made her, and the few who will become something altogether beyond human.

Humankind has just taken its first step toward the stars.

Book One of Liminal Sky

Excerpt:

DRESSLER, SCHEMATIC,” Colin McAvery, ship’s captain and a third of the crew, called out to the ship-mind.

A three-dimensional image of the ship appeared above the smooth console. Her five living arms, reaching out from her central core, were lit with a golden glow, and the mechanical bits of instrumentation shone in red. In real life, she was almost two hundred meters from tip to tip.

Between those arms stretched her solar wings, a ghostly green film like the sails of the Flying Dutchman.

“You’re a pretty thing,” he said softly. He loved these ships, their delicate beauty as they floated through the starry void.

“Thank you, Captain.” The ship-mind sounded happy with the compliment—his imagination running wild. Minds didn’t have real emotions, though they sometimes approximated them.

He cross-checked the heading to be sure they remained on course to deliver their payload, the man-sized seed that was being dragged on a tether behind the ship. Humanity’s ticket to the stars at a time when life on Earth was getting rapidly worse.

All of space was spread out before him, seen through the clear expanse of plasform set into the ship’s living walls. His own face, trimmed blond hair, and deep brown eyes, stared back at him, superimposed over the vivid starscape.

At thirty, Colin was in the prime of his career. He was a starship captain, and yet sometimes he felt like little more than a bus driver. After this run… well, he’d have to see what other opportunities might be awaiting him. Maybe the doc was right, and this was the start of a whole new chapter for mankind. They might need a guy like him.

The walls of the bridge emitted a faint but healthy golden glow, providing light for his work at the curved mechanical console that filled half the room. He traced out the T-Line to their destination. “Dressler, we’re looking a little wobbly.” Colin frowned. Some irregularity in the course was common—the ship was constantly adjusting its trajectory—but she usually corrected it before he noticed.

“Affirmative, Captain.” The ship-mind’s miniature chosen likeness appeared above the touch board. She was all professional today, dressed in a standard AmSplor uniform, dark hair pulled back in a bun, and about a third life-sized.

The image was nothing more than a projection of the ship-mind, a fairy tale, but Colin appreciated the effort she took to humanize her appearance. Artificial mind or not, he always treated minds with respect.

“There’s a blockage in arm four. I’ve sent out a scout to correct it.”

The Dressler was well into slowdown now, her pre-arrival phase as she bled off her speed, and they expected to reach 43 Ariadne in another fifteen hours.

Pity no one had yet cracked the whole hyperspace thing. Colin chuckled. Asimov would be disappointed. “Dressler, show me Earth, please.”

A small blue dot appeared in the middle of his screen.

Dressler, three dimensions, a bit larger, please.” The beautiful blue-green world spun before him in all its glory.

Appearances could be deceiving. Even with scrubbers working tirelessly night and day to clean the excess carbon dioxide from the air, the home world was still running dangerously warm.

He watched the image in front of him as the East Coast of the North American Union spun slowly into view. Florida was a sliver of its former self, and where New York City’s lights had once shone, there was now only blue. If it had been night, Fargo, the capital of the Northern States, would have outshone most of the other cities below. The floods that had wiped out many of the world’s coastal cities had also knocked down Earth’s population, which was only now reaching the levels it had seen in the early twenty-first century.

All those new souls had been born into a warm, arid world.

We did it to ourselves. Colin, who had known nothing besides the hot planet he called home, wondered what it had been like those many years before the Heat.

Author Bio:

Scott spends his time between the here and now and the what could be. Enticed into fantasy and sci fi by his mom at the tender age of nine, he devoured her Science Fiction Book Club library. But as he grew up, he wondered where all the people like him were in the books he was reading.

He decided that it was time to create the kinds of stories he couldn’t find at his local bookstore. If there weren’t gay characters in his favorite genres, he would remake them to his own ends.

His friends say Scott’s mind works a little differently – he sees relationships between things that others miss, and gets more done in a day than most folks manage in a week. He loves to transform traditional sci fi, fantasy, and contemporary worlds into something unexpected.

Starting in 2014, Scott has published more than 15 works, including two novels and a number of novellas and short stories.

He runs both Queer Sci Fi and QueeRomance Ink with his husband Mark, sites that bring queer people together to promote and celebrate fiction that reflects their own lives.
