Here's the next snippet from the third book in the Destiny Trilogy. Thanks so much to everyone who has been following this series, and stayed with me xx


You can read the previous snippet of  Beloved Enemy LINK
(The story so far - Cat Kincaid has crashlanded on an unknown and seemingly hostile planet, apparently in the middle of a gun battle in the not-too-far distance. Cat, being Cat has to investigate...(some creative punctuation to comply with sentence count


No one could call Cat Kincaid a coward, but she wasn’t a fool either, nor about to commit suicide. However, allying herself with them might be her best hope of escape from this planet. A slight movement in the bushes just below her, to her right, and a low humming noise, warned her of another weapon firing up. A flash of light cut the air, and the shortest of the three figures gave a strangled cry, crumpling to the ground.

One of the men swung round and fired in their assailants’ direction, while the other bent to tend to their companion.Casting a quick look to her left, she took advantage of the confusion to check her surroundings - no sign of Shifter. She hoped he’d just merged into the landscape, but she couldn’t risk checking, and could only trust he would find cover. The injury, or perhaps death, of one of the combatants lengthened the odds against them even further, making the decision for her, she couldn’t just walk away from the situation. One of the antagonists fired again, raising his head above the rock as he took aim. Cat fired back, rewarded by a shrill cry as the figure fell.


BLURB

Cat Kincaid is obsessed with killing the man she believes is responsible for the torture and death of her sister, but when she eventually catches up with him, survival becomes a greater priority than revenge.

Kerry Marchant, haunted by memories, regret, and self-blame, shields himself from the pain of the past by committing himself totally to the starship, Destiny, of which he is part owner. However, the beautiful, red-haired woman who reminds him of his lost love, and who he suspects is working for a corrupt regime, represents a possible threat not only to the ship, but to his heart.

Marooned on an inhospitable planet, they need to work together to stay alive, fighting not only unknown assailants, but their growing attraction. But how can they learn to trust each other when he has vowed never to get close to a woman again, and she made a solemn pledge to destroy him?

  2. She's already helped to even the odds. I wonder if the group she's trying to save realize what she's doing yet.

    1. Thank you Nancy - yes, she's at the point of no return now, I reckon!

  5. But, she still doesn't know anything about these people. They might be escaping criminals. Of course our heroines have to take chances or they'd never have an adventure.

    1. Absolutely - and you're right. But she's not being completely altruistic - she's hoping she'll be her means of escaping from this planet.

    1. Yes - she's had some practice, and at least she's managed to even up the odds a little.

  7. My reaction to her decision shows I’m a coward. I was thinking, “oh, they’re toast- better run!” :-)

    1. LOL, I tend to agree, Christina, I'd be thinking the same. Luckily my heroines tend to be a lot braver than I am!

  8. She seems like a good fighter, taking her time, assessing the situation, then taking her best shot. Of course, I hope she ends up fighting for the right side. Nice snippet!

  12. Nothing wrong with a little self interest. I wonder if she'll find something about these people that makes her less detached, though.
