Sharing now from my newest, just released scifi romance  Darik (A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel): Sectors New Allies Series Book 4.

Punctuation may be wonky to comply with our guidelines here. May be edited a bit from published version.

Last week we left Nicolle facing off against the giant predator. Today we continue from there.

The excerpt:

A roar sounded from behind her, across the water, maybe even from outside the force barrier. Startled, she screamed and slipped on the mossy rocks, barely keeping her footing. The animal in front of her rose to its full height again, bellowing and displaying an impressive array of sharp teeth, as well as yellowed claws on its massive front paws. Nicolle cowered, but the beast wasn’t paying any attention to her now. All its attention was on whatever was beyond the stream.

The next roar from behind her was even more impressive. It sounded almost…human?

Ears flattened, the beast pivoted, dropped to all fours, and scrambled away from Nicolle as fast as it could go, bushy tail tucked away between its legs.

Breathing shakily, she steeled herself to turn, hoping this new threat was outside the force barrier and couldn’t get in.

Having wheeled to face the other direction, at first she couldn’t believe her eyes. Nothing but one man stood across the force barrier from her.

VS Note: And of course the guy is Darik…

darik_Veronica_ScottThe blurb: 

Nicolle James is far from her home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments.  Her only hope might be a mysterious soldier she’d glimpsed outside the laboratory fence. She’d managed to sneak a few words of conversation with him when her captors weren’t watching but now the aliens were taking her inside the lab to begin the experiments.

Darik, a warrior of the genetically engineered Badari pack, is on a solo recon mission to check out a mysterious new lab high in the mountains. His orders are strict – do not engage. But when he has a chance meeting with the woman who might be his mate, he vows not to abandon her, orders or no orders.

Can he get inside an underground lab, find Nicolle and rescue her without getting captured himself? And when he learns the lab’s deadly secrets, can he get word to his pack about the new dangers?

Because the ruthless alien scientist running the experiments wants to get her hands on him too and will stop at nothing to achieve her goals.

  1. Thank goodness for Darik! I wonder how he learned to scare the beast like that. Great snippet!

  2. Thanks for the comments! Always much appreciated 🙂 Just for context, since Darik is a genetically engineered being in this scifi world, he’s 7′ tall, with muscles to match his height, and has retractable claws and fangs. So, yup, he can be scary! (But very handsome…)

  3. He sounds like a worthy friend, lover, or ally, but he’s on the other side of the barrier. Can he breach it?

  4. This reminded me of Obi Wan in the first Star Wars movie scaring away the… whatever it was that Third Shift Brain can’t put a name to at the moment when he first met Luke.
