The fierce warriors of the Eon Empire want nothing to do with Earth…but when ravenous insectoid aliens threaten to invade, the humans of Earth need to get the Eon warriors’ attention.
It all started with one kickass woman abducting a powerful Eon war commander. Now, the Eon Empire and Earth have a tenuous and budding alliance, but when fierce Space Corps marine, Lieutenant Jamie Park, is stationed aboard the Eon warship, the Desteron, she finds herself butting heads with the ship’s arrogant, hard-headed medical commander Aydin Kann-Ath.
Watch the sparks fly!
I am thrilled to be showing you the cover for the next Eon Warriors book, Mark of Eon and to celebrate both Mark of Eon and the holiday season, I have my BIG Christmas Giveaway! So don’t miss out.
Mark of Eon
Eon Warriors #5
Release Date: Tuesday December 31st
Cover art by Melody Simmons
Excerpt from Kiss of Eon featuring Jamie and Aydin
“Stevens!” Jamie Park yelled into her comm. “Taro!”
“I see them, Lieutenant,” her space marine answered.
“As do I,” the warrior responded.
Terran and Eon soldiers shot forward, engaging the bugs.
Jamie swung her sword, slicing into one of the aliens. Damn, she loved a good fight. With controlled slashes, she sliced up the bug.
Another arrowed toward her and she raised her weapon. Using her suit’s propulsion system, she flew forward, skewering the Kantos alien.
When she wrenched her sword back, she saw that her team had fully engaged the enemy.
Sorry, bug brains, no snacks for you today. She swiveled and flew closer to the injured couple. She slid her sword back over her shoulder.
Allie looked up. The woman looked like she’d had a rough day.
“Damn glad to see you, Jamie. Brack’s hurt.”
Jamie could see from the warrior’s sluggish movements that he wasn’t doing well. “We’ll get you both back to the Desteron, and you can get poked, prodded, and healed.”
Taking a second, Jamie studied Allie—who was wearing Eon black-scale armor just like the second commander. Interesting.
Under their helmets, the pair looked like they’d been through hell.
Then Allie jerked. “Jamie, look out!”
Spinning, Jamie moved fluidly into a combat stance. She and her marines practiced space combat daily.
One of the bugs was coming straight at them. This one was bigger than the others, moving more aggressively. The alpha bug. Throwing her arms out, she let her combat knives slide down her forearms and into her hands.
Then she attacked.
Jamie used the propulsion from her suit to spin around the bug. It tried to match her movements, but her knives were already flashing. She sliced one of the bug’s legs off with two well-aimed slashes.
Oh, yeah. Jamie spent hours honing the edges on her blades.
Injured, the alien drew back, remaining legs flailing. She spotted another bug coming up from the side to attack Allie and Brack.
Fuck. Jamie shot forward. “Allie, move!”
The captain jerked, trying to spin the second commander around. But they were too slow.
And Jamie wasn’t going to be quick enough.
She threw one knife, but it missed by an inch, sailing past the bug’s head.
The bug’s focus was on Allie.
Jamie hit the control for max propulsion, pressing her arms to her sides. She exploded forward, ramming a shoulder into Allie to knock her out of the way.
The bug’s sharp pincers rammed into Jamie’s gut.
Oh, damn. That hurt like a motherfucker.
“Jamie!” Allie’s cry.
Jamie swung her knife around, cutting into the bug’s head. Its pincers were moving, tearing up her belly. She yanked her knife back, and then stabbed the alien in the eye. She twisted the blade.
The bug released her, floating away. Its ugly mouth opened, and there was no sound, but she could easily imagine the screech it would have made.
But then her knife slipped from nerveless fingers.
She felt blood oozing out of her. As her body floated backward in space, she saw the Desteron and the Divergent in the distance, flying close, working together.
She drifted, her mind floating. There was no pain now.
Alone. She’d been alone most of her life. Even when she’d lived with the assholes who’d contributed to her DNA, she’d been alone. Then through all the foster homes.
She’d made a family for herself at Space Corps. Her squad of marines both loved and cursed her, which she took as a sign that she was doing a decent job as their leader.
But Jamie wondered if any of them would mourn her death for long. She’d be replaced, their work would go on, and she’d fade from their memories.
She felt wetness on her cheek and realized that it was a tear.
She hadn’t cried since she was a terrified child, hiding from her drunken, abusive parents.
Sound crashed back in on her…and so did the pain. She groaned.
Hands gripped her arms. Then Allie’s helmeted face was in front of her.
“Stay with me, Lieutenant.”
Her captain, her friend. Jamie tried to nod, but her muscles wouldn’t respond.
“A shuttle is on the way to pick us up,” Allie said.
Jamie turned her head, blinking. The bright-blue lights of the Eon shuttle were blinding. It zoomed toward them.
She drifted off again, her thoughts scattering. Suddenly, hands were on her, and then she was being lifted.
More lights. Pain. Fuck, the pain was frigging horrible.
Then blackness. The next thing she knew, she was lying on a firm bed. Then there was a deep, male voice.
“Let’s see those eyes open, marine.”
Jamie blinked. The face of a handsome Eon warrior came into view. His brow was creased in concentration, his neat brown hair fell over his forehead, calling attention to his rugged face.
“I’m alive?” Her voice was barely more than a croak.
“Yes.” He arched a brow. “And I’m planning to keep it that way. I had to use our healing havv to patch you up.”
She knew the Eon havv was similar to the helian. A red fluid of bio-organisms that could heal up wounds spectacularly.
Her gaze snagged on his hands. He had big ones, with long, well-shaped fingers. They had a few nicks and scars. Not a man who sat at a desk all day.
“You’re in Medical,” the warrior said. “Aboard the Desteron. I’m Medical Commander Aydin Kann-Ath.”
“Alive, thanks to you. Captain Borden is all healed up, and hovering over the ever-stubborn, but healing, Second Commander.”
“I heard that,” came the rumble of Brack’s voice from nearby.
Jamie didn’t have the energy to turn her head and look. Damn, she hurt so much. She was damn glad Allie and her warrior were alive.
“You’re in pain.” The medical commander shifted, and she saw him lift a pressure injector.
Jamie stiffened. “No drugs.”
He frowned at her. “It’s a painkiller—”
“I don’t like them.” She tried to grab his arm and missed by a mile. Her parents used to dope her up when she was a kid.
“I’m not allowing you to be in agony,” he said firmly.
“Do it and I’ll break your kneecaps.”
He made a scoffing sound. “I might be a doctor, but I’m also a fully-trained Eon warrior.”
She glared at him. “I could take you.”
Then he smiled. God, it was a damn nice one.
“I look forward to you trying, when you can actually stand.” Before she could stop him, he touched the pressure injector to her neck.
She growled, but the pain instantly started to dull. “Bastard.”
His lips quirked. “I think you’re feeling better already.”
Then he leaned closer, and she felt him touching her neck. He smelled good. Really, really good. She stiffened. The drugs must be affecting her brain.
“I like your face,” she murmured.
He stilled, surprise a quick ripple on his features. “I like yours too.”
“And you smell nice.”
His lips quirked. “You suffer adverse effects from the drugs.”
“Told you I didn’t want them.” She felt the unfamiliar urge to pout.
“I thought you space marines were tough?”
The medical commander shifted, turning to move away, and her belly clenched. Jamie’s hand shot out, and this time, she managed to grab his wrist.
Her fingers brushed over the thick band that she knew housed his helian symbiont. She felt warmth pulse up her arm.
He turned back to her, frowning.
“Don’t…” Jamie swallowed, could barely force the words out. “Don’t leave me alone.”
Something moved across his handsome face. Then his warm fingers closed over hers.
“I’m not going anywhere, Jamie. I’m right here.”
God, it was so weak to need someone else. “Don’t tell anyone.” Her words were a whisper.
He seemed to understand her. “Your warrior reputation is safe with me.”
And that was all she needed.
With his warm presence beside her, she closed her eyes and let sleep take her.
