To celebrate the release of the latest Galactic Gladiators book, Barbarian, I have a giveaway of a set of three signed gladiator paperbacks!
— Congratulations to the giveaway winner, Kylie G! She told me she startled her cats with her happy dance 🙂 —
Abducted by alien slavers, experimented on, and left blind, the last thing doctor Winter Ashworth needs is a big barbarian gladiator in her life, especially an annoying one who thinks she’s small and weak. Rescued by gladiators on the desert world of Carthago, Winter is doggedly working to embrace her new life. But two of her friends are still missing and she’ll do anything to help get them back…even if she has to work alongside Nero Krahn: hunter, barbarian, gladiator. The scowly, brooding man is too big, has too many muscles, and pushes all her buttons.
Nero is the House of Galen’s best hunter and tracker. Raised on a barbarian world, where strength and might are prized, he was bred to hunt and fight. Now the arena is his home and his loyalty is to his imperator. He knows he can use his skills to find the two lost women, even if that means protecting a small blind woman who takes every chance to misjudge his words and lash him with her sharp tongue.
But as they follow a dangerous trail to save their friends, a new enemy emerges—one who wants Winter. The pair find themselves reluctantly attracted to each other, uncovering a scorching desire that shocks them both. As Nero fights to protect Winter, the barbarian gladiator will discover the true meaning of strength from the small Earth woman he wants to claim as his.

So excited for your new book and congratulations on this release! Can’t wait to read it!
I love these series and can’t wait for more!
Nice choice 🙂
Can’t wait to read about Nero.
So excited for you, safe journeys.
Happy reading, Linda, and thanks. Luckily we aren’t moving *too* far.
Looking forward to the new book. My favorite, you ask? Love them all, but Kace is the BEST!
Yay for Kace. Happy reading, Michelle!
Congratulations on the new release! I tweeted and joined the Facebook readers squad. I had already liked your FB author Page. Thanks for the chance to win free books!
Hi KM! *waving* Thanks and good luck in the giveaway!
Congrats on the new release! Looking forward to the two new THS books ;D
Since I’m yet to read the Gladiator series, I’d have to go with Raiden – great name btw – for my sword-fighting tutor.
Thanks for the chance at winning paperbacks, I do so love holding a physical book, and I’m guessing these will be more physical than most, right? ;P
Hi Jay! I’m in the depths of editing Hale’s book…and having a blast. It is so much fun being back with the THS gang! Good luck in the giveaway…and if you win, let’s hope they take a faster plane than Cruz did 😉
Your books look really good. 🙂
Thanks, Chandra! Hope you find some you enjoy 🙂
Anna, you did it again! Barbarian was everything I expected and more!! I can’t wait for the next installment!
P. S. Good luck with your move <3
Mwah. Thank you, Mariya. So happy you enjoyed Nero and Winter. And thanks…I’ll take the moving luck!
Oh, Anna. You are really going to make me choose which Gladiator I want giving me sword lessons? If I had to just pick one (pout pout), I guess I want Galen. He is more mature, and seems to just NEED someone to let him relax a little. Heeheehee
Congrats on the new release. Looking forward to my chance to read it all in one fell swoop.
LOL — Galen is a great choice, Debra! Thanks and happy reading.
Sword fighting lesson? I’d say Harper because I think she be have more patience (and a bit closer to my size. The guys are a bit intimidating)
You’re right, Robin! I think Harper would be an excellent and patient teacher. Glad you enjoyed Barbarian 🙂
Galen can teach me anything he likes!
Snort! Well, Karen, he is very skilled with a sword 🙂
Love the new book! Move safely. Need more stories! So selfish I know.
I’m doing everything I can to make sure the move doesn’t impact my writing. I think the writing will help keep me sane!
I am new to Galactic Gladiators. I am a big Hell Squad fan and I can’t wait to read this new series!!
Thanks for sharing your imagination with us.
So many Hell Squad fans are enjoying the gladiators too, Angie! Happy reading!!
Galen of course, since it is his house and he seems to know how to get things done…
That he does. Cheers, Meleeta!
Making a difficult choice because each are totally hot but I can’t resist Kace!! ?
Kace is a popular man! Great choice, Kim 🙂
The book was awesome! I wasn’t sure how I would feel about a blind heroine, but as always, you added your special touch and Winter totally owned it! I hope all goes well with your move and thanks for the chance to win some GG hotness!
Oops! I forgot to answer the question! I don’t know about sword lessons, probably Raiden. I’m anxiously awaiting seeing more of Rillian, so I wouldn’t mind whatever he wanted to teach me!
Glad you enjoyed Winter and Nero, Christine! And Raiden it is for lessons…and don’t worry, there will be more Rillian to come 😉
Looking forward to reading barbarian!
So excited to hunker down with Barbarian hopefully tonight! Glad your move is going smoothly thus far! Squeeing in excitement for 2 THS books!
Happy reading, Danielle. Pretty sure I’ll reach packing panic levels this weekend…we’ll see 🙂 And yes, I am loving being back with THS!
I can’t wait to read about Nero and Winter. Your books rock!!
Thanks a bunch, JB 😀
Sign me up for a lesson from Galen, please!
Best wishes for a successful move!
Nice choice, Kareni! And thanks — fingers crossed the move goes smoothly.
Awesome. I really like this series, and the covers are great. The content is even better off course, but that goes without saying for all your books. Good luck in Perth with your move.
Big hugs, Suze. Thank you! And thanks for the moving luck — I’ll need it 🙂
Nero is a barbarian with a soft and squishy centre! Winter may be at a disadvantage with the loss of her sight but she is still deadly with a blade due to her history as a surgeon. Intergalactic Awesomesauce!
Love your descriptions of Nero and Winter, Nikki! Awesomesauce 😀
Best one yet!
Thanks, Lisa <3
These gladiators are hot and wild. I love these books. They are awesome. Thanks for writing them.
My pleasure, Chris! More hot, wild gladiators to come.
Congrats on your release! Not sure which I would choose… let them all show me their style! 😉
LOL — excellent decision, Colleen 😀
I just recently was introduced to your work . I am still on book 1.. so I can not pick yet but I am working my way through quickly ?
Happy reading, Joy. Look forward to hearing who your favorite gladiator is 🙂
Happy Release Day! <3
Enjoying Nero & Winter so far.
Thanks, Karen <3
I would have Raiden from the Gladiator to teach me sword fighting because that was his weapon of choice. Thorin, the hero of Warrior, used an axe. And Kace of the Hero book used a staff. So for sword fighting you need a sword wearing hero.
Yes, Raiden knows how to swing that sword, Susan 🙂
Happy Release Day – WOW – Such a fantastic story – relished it – and so glad I read your books
Thrilled you loved it, Sherill! Thank you!
*Sigh* If I must choose, I pick Raiden Tiago. (For now) 😉
Okay, I won’t really make you just pick one, Elizabeth 😉
I’d like a lesson with Kace! Maybe not swords but staff instead. Or any lesson we can think up 😉
Loved the new book, putting up my review later today!
LOL — yes, I’m sure Kace can show you a thing or two, Kyrene. So happy you loved Nero and Winter.
I just discovered your Treasure Hunter series and love them all….starting the free box series..Thank you..can’t wait for new Treasure Hunter books..thanks for a wonderful way to pass the time!
Hi Carmen! So glad you’re enjoying the Treasure Hunter Security books! Enjoy the free books and I’m busy working on my THS right now…won’t be long.
I think Galen. Although I wouldn’t say no to any of them lol..
I like your thinking, Emily!
I just bought book 1, I am new to this series. Sounds very interesting and Winter sounds like a feisty character and Nero. Look forward to read this book.
Happy reading, Gerrie! I hope you enjoy the action-packed adventure in Gladiator.
I’m so far behind on reading this series! Lucky I have the school holidays shortly to catch up! Really looking forward to reading Nero and Winter’s story – love the idea of a blind heroine. 🙂
Hi Kylie! School holidays usually means less free time for me. I envy you your reading time. Enjoy!
Thanks for the giveaway! I just love this series!
Cheers, Melissa 🙂
Woo hoo! I get so damn excited when I get an email from you, especially when it is a new release email!! Love all the gladiators, but I think thorin teaching me some more axe skills would be awesome( but I am holding on to nero, too). Why axe, you say?? My motto “why kill them with kindness when you can use an axe”!!
I love hearing people love my emails, Christy! I am sure Thorin would be happy to show you some axe skills 🙂
Love your books. So excited for Barbarian!
Thanks, Rebecca! Happy reading.
I think I’d pick Raiden.
Good choice, Vanessa!
I love your books and I my favorite is still Kace and Harper’s story! I pick Harper, she’s so strong and I loved that she already had great “moves!”
Favorites! Can’t type today. My daughter’s name is Rory (short for Aurora) too!
I think Harper would be an excellent sword fighting teacher, Flora 🙂
I’m not sure yet.
Take your time, Mary 😀
Oh, I would love to win these books! I’ve been wanting to read this series but have not had the opportunity to do so as I know that once I start I won’t be able to stop! 🙂
Good luck, Michelle!
At this stage, I’d say Raiden, however I am waiting on Galen to show more of his moves.
I wish you the Gladiator series was available via KOBO. Would definitely love to win 3 paperback copies.
All the best for the new release
Thanks, Cherry! We’ll see more of Galen before too long, and the Galactic Gladiators will eventually make their way to Kobo!
OMG I live this series it just keeps getting better and better. Every book keeps me wanting to read more about these characters, even the supporting cast is interesting ?, an should prolly get they’re own books too
Darn secondary characters all want their own stories 😀
– I just downloaded Barbarian and can’t wait to start reading it because I know it will be awesome!
– I know that moving sucks…so I hope everything goes smoothly.
– As for sword fighting lessons, I think I’ll go with Raiden. He seems to know how to use/swing his really big sword! But…if Galen can handle his sword better, I may have to switch teachers. *hehehe*
LOL, Shannon! I’m sure both Raiden and Galen would both do a great job…with sword fighting lessons 😉 Happy Barbarian reading.
My favourite? That’s a bit like asking which is my favourite chocolate … but if I was pushed I’d have to say Raiden. I’m not going to make any ‘ooooh matron’ comments about swords … snigger … thinking them though!
Naughty, naughty, Cate! 😀
Congrats on the new book. I will catch up, only a little behind now. Not enough hours for all the reading I’d like to do. Seeing all the comments, I’m pretty excited to get to this Barbarian!
I know that feeling very well, Sheila! I’m always wishing for more reading time.
love all your books so no way can ever pick just one as favorite lol way to go on so many wonderful books can’t wait for more and ty very much for giveaway very awesome 🙂
Thanks, Terri and I won’t really make you pick!
I Love #GalacticGladiators series so much !! \O/ *fangirl flail*
BARBARIAN is brilliant and I love the grumpy, resistant gladiator Nero and resilient doctor, Winter.
Aww, thank you, Cubbie!
I can’t wait to read this next story in the journey!
More to come, Julia 🙂
Love love love Barbarian! The arguing between those two is fun! This series just keeps getting better and better!
Thanks so much, Rachelle! <3
loved Barbarian reminded me of Conan the JM version 😉
A girl can never have enough barbarian in her life 😉
Lore hands down!! He’s my favorite Gladiator! Love everything you put out.. So as long as you keep writing, I will continue hiding in my room from the kids and husband to read!
Well, prepare for more hiding, Amanda! More books on the way 😀
Love these books, Anna! It must be time for a reread…again, because I can’t decide who I’d want as a trainer during sword practice – I mean they are all so skilled knowing how to handle their sword with ease.
Thanks, Karen! And yes, these boys know how to handle their swords 😉
Loved this book
It’s hard to choose between Raiden and Kace for lessons!
Loved Nero’s book! Can’t wait for more!
Can’t go wrong with either Raiden or Kace, Ashley. More gladiator goodness on the way soon.
I love love love all of your series! I cant ever get enough of them. I also really love and appreciate how connected you are with your fans. I love being part of Book Readers club and all our little family. The fact that you’re willing to respond and have conversations with us means a lot.
Thanks, Shaye! I always say the best author perk is getting to chat with people who love to read what I love to read and write! I <3 the reader squad -- such a great group.
I love this series and the covers! I would be so excited if I won this prize. Fingers crossed….
Thanks, Shannon and good luck!!
Good question. Galen seems like a great choice or Kace, but I also have a soft spot for Thorin. Could be the shifter thing 🙂
They would all be good choices, Denise! And I know a few readers with a soft spot for Thorin!
Anna, you’re awesome, LOVED Barbarian and am looking forward to Blue’s story – it’ll take me some time to call him by his proper name though!
I completely agree! Barbarian was amazing but I don’t think I’ll ever get round to calling Blue anything other than Blue! Vek is an amazing name though- perfect for him! It took me about 3 sentences into his chapter in Barbarian to realise it was talking about him ??
Thrilled you loved it, Amy! You’ll get used to calling him Vek 😀
Glad you liked Blue/Vek’s name, Connie. Just came out as I was writing and I knew it was right for him!
Do I have to choose?! Id like ALL of them to give me a training lesson! If I had to pick though if have to go with Raiden ? Harper is one lucky girl ??
I won’t really make you pick just one, Connie 😉
Love those gladiators and can’t get enough of the series. They truly do care for those humans.
They certainly do, Julie! Stay tuned for more gladiators!
Lore, he fascinates me.
Very nice choice, Kathryn 🙂
Mmmm, I’m going with Raiden, myself!
I think he’d be an excellent teacher 😉
I would like Kace.
Nice, Jana! He’d be the most patient, I think 🙂
Holy smoldering bysepts I almost missed this!!!! Anna, I am so happy to have found your books, but I am even happier and more grateful for the community you foster between your readers and yourself. Thank you for taking the time to engage with us and encourage our silly antics. We truly do love your books as the Squad of readers you have brought together. I am thankful for you all.
Thank you, Emily! I love the fun I have with my awesomesauce readers!! <3
Oh, I forgot to say but if totally go for Raiden… I like them Alpha work a tender side..
Quite a few peeps are tempted to spend some time with Raiden 😀
Give me a few lessons with Lore please. He’s absolutely fascinating and I love a man with some magic and humor.
Wonderful (and fiery) choice, Davinia!
I’d love Raiden to be my teacher. Can’t wait for the next book!
More gladiators on the way, Melissa!
