Hell Squad: Hemi Cover Reveal
Release Date: May 30th
Excerpt from Hell Squad: Theron featuring Hemi
Hemi Rahia fired his carbine, his focus on taking down the aliens.
Fucking Gizzida. The bastards had invaded the world, and killed and destroyed millions. He had zero issues mowing them down.
He yanked a grenade off his belt and lobbed it into a group of approaching raptors. He grinned. As flames erupted, his squad fanned out around him, firing at the aliens.
They were the toughest sons of bitches he’d ever fought with, and he was proud to stand with them.
“Think I’m going to have this year’s quota for the most kills,” Levi called out. The former biker, aimed his carbine, taking down two raptors in quick succession.
Hemi snorted and yanked his shotgun off his back. “You wish, King.” A raptor charged at Hemi with a roar, and Hemi pumped the weapon, then shot the alien in the gut.
“Incoming!” Tane yelled.
A raptor grenade bounced between them—an ugly, black device covered in spikes. Hemi and his squad mates dived out of the way.
He hit the ground and rolled, just as flames exploded behind him. He came to his feet and realized he’d been separated from the other guys.
Several raptors were moving in to surround him.
He pumped the shotgun. “Bring it on, assholes.” He shot the nearest raptor, the boom echoing around him.
A huge-ass creeper skittered closer and let out a screech. Damn thing was so ugly. He pumped the shotgun again.
Suddenly, laser fire sprayed the beast, cutting it down.
Hemi looked up and saw the Darkswift shoot past.
“Looked like you needed some help.” The smug female voice came through his earpiece.
“Baby, I was doing just fine, but I know you can’t stay away from me.”
He easily pictured Cam’s long, lean body settled in the Darkswift, and he easily pictured her nose scrunching from his comment. He waited for her snarky response.
A half snort, half laugh crossed the comm line and he realized Cam’s partner, Taylor, was on the line as well.
“Keep dreaming, Rahia.” Cam’s tone was sharp.
Ah, there it was. It was really sick, he knew, but he loved when she tossed that attitude his way.
He paused to shoot another raptor, and headed back toward his squad. “I’ve got plenty of dreams, Cam.” He lowered his voice. “And you star in all of them.” And it was about damn time she quit running and he made them more than just dreams.
A humming silence.
He grinned. Yeah, he loved poking at her and seeing her flares of passion and temper.
“Rahia, if you think—”
He cut her off. “It’s New Year’s Eve soon.” He kicked a dying raptor out of his way. “There’s a big party planned and at the stroke of twelve, I’ll find you.”
“Oh?” A slow, unconcerned drawl.
“The kiss at midnight is all mine.” You’re all mine. It was a promise.
“Keep dreaming, Rahia,” she snapped.
As more raptors converged, he swung his weapon around. Oh, he would. And he had every intention of making his dreams come true.
I am also squeeing with excitement to announce that the first two books of Galactic Gladiators are now available as audiobooks. The oh-so-brilliant narrator, Vivienne Leheny, has done an amazing job with not just the voices of the characters but also giving us the emotion of the series. Come take a listen to the alien world of Carthago.

Nice cover, Anna. Love the ink!!!
Thanks, Anne! Thought it suited our Hemi.
Oh my, now I don’t know if I am more excited about “Hem”i or that you’re working on another “Galactic Gladiators”. Good thing I don’t have to choose. Can’t wait for both. I hope you can keep them coming Love ’em all!!!!!
You can look forward to Hemi and then a new gladiator coming after him, Lyda. Plenty more of both series to come!
Love the cover! Hemi is so alpha…
Thanks, Meleeta! Hemi is alpha…but with a side of funny and charming underneath 🙂
Wow…I’m out of breath! I simply adore the cover of Hemi! Can’t wait for the beserkers. Theron was a great book to read.
So pleased you enjoyed Theron, Diarra! And not you get Hemi is the same month! Glad you love his cover.
My God I love your novels Anna! It’s been a gift to get to read about Hell Squad and the Gladiators while I go through some trying times. Thank you for all that you do! Love me some berserkers! Wahoo!
So, so happy to hear that, Sally. One of the reasons I write is in the hope that it helps my readers escape the real life stuff for a little while, and if my stories help people through tough times in any way, I am so incredibly happy. Stay tuned for more berserkers!
The cover is gorgeous! I can’t wait for Hemi’s story! He has been “romancing” Cam for so long, poor guy! lol
Yes, poor Hemi. She’s been running fast but he’s about to catch her 😉
OMG!! I love love love this cover!! Its not my Finn or Shaw but its amazing!! Definitely up there at the top of my list 😉 Can’t wait to read it!
Glad you like him, Kyrene 😀
Hemi! Hemi! Hemi! I cannot wait to get my hands on you!!!!! ?
He’ll be in your hands very, very soon, Katie!
Woo hoo It’s almost Hemi time!!!
Getting soooo close, Melissa!
Can’t wait for Hemi and more Hell Squad!
Yay, Jas! Hemi will be heading your way very soon.

Hi Anna, congratulations on another fantastic cover!
*whispers* JM would love it ;P
Can’t wait to read more of Hell Squad. x
Thanks so much, Jay 😀

Cheers, Kathryn 🙂
Love the covers. They get better and better with each book.
Aww, thank you, Kai!
I love, love, love this cover!! Hemi looks sooo sexy with all those gorgeous tats! Of course I can’t wait to read the book too… I already know it’s going to be great!
So, so glad you love him, Shannon! Can’t wait for you to read him!
Nice cover!! But then, I’ve never found one I didn’t appreciate. I’m back to Shaw for a couple days, waiting for 5/30.
Thanks 🙂 Happy re-reading, Sheila! You’ll be all ready when Hemi arrives.
Omg omg omg!!! I don’t think I could wait 2 weeks!!! Good thing I’m on the launch team or I’d be quite upset I think. Lol. Congrats Anna on what I’d guess will be another awesome book!!! ?
Thanks a bunch, Carly 😀 Lucky for you, you’ll have Hemi very soon!
Oooh yes!!! Can’t wait for Hemi! Thank you for this bonus!
My pleasure, Karen. Glad you enjoyed Hemi and the bonus 🙂
Hemmmmiiiii!!!! I love the cover ,now only to see a front view.
Yay!!!! Super glad you love him, Dawn!
I love the cover ! I think that it is very unique !
I absolutely love this series! The thought process behind it is amazing! I cant wait to read more and see Hemi and Cam together. This cover may be the hottest one yet (although I may just be biased on the beard and tattoos part). Hemi’s maori styled tattoos remind me of the ‘kraken’ they discovered. Either way this cover and series is hot.
Thanks so much, Shannah!! I think Hemi’s cover is pretty hot 🙂 So glad you are a Hell Squad fan <3
I think this is my favourite cover yet – that bod and those tattoos! Sigh … can’t wait to read this one
Glad you like him, Cate. And don’t worry…he’ll be here before you know it.
Loved every book in this series. I think all the covers look cool!
So happy to hear that, Brenda!
That cover is all kind of gorgeous and I can’t wait to read it!
Glad you like him, Shawn 😀
Awesome give away as always and love Hell Squad they rock 🙂 Can’t wait to read more!!!
Cheers, Terri! <3
Can’t wait to read Hemi’s story. Love every book in this series (as well as every one of your other series). Each one is a must buy. Keep up the great writing!!
Thank you so much, Lizabeth! I am so fortunate to have wonderful readers like you who love Hell Squad 🙂
I love the cover! I am not, however, to keen on the full beard he has going on though. 5 o`clock shadow? heck ya! But not a full beard. Never the less, he is still hot, and I love the tattoos. The rest of the cover is great too of course ;b
Huh, I guess this thing is keyed into a different time zone, because it was 10:12 when I first posted, so I am not yet in the 20th…Hope I still qualify.
Thanks, Cassia! And I just checked and your entries are in there. Good luck!
Yaaayyyy!!! Hemi is finally here (almost)! Can’t wait to read his and Cam’s story. The short story featuring Marcus and Elle was sweet. A reminder to take time for each other no matter what crazy is going on. Thank you Anna!
Thanks, Amy! I am so excited to share Hemi and Cam with everyone. And so glad you enjoyed a glimpse of Marcus and Elle 🙂
What an amazing cover…gorgeous ink, sexy backside, and with that dark beard I am imagining Hemi has piercing, blue eyes…YUMMY!!! You really have outdone yourself with this cover Anna. It would make a fantastic poster that I could *drool* over all day & night. Lord, it just got warm in here…LOL!! I am sooo looking forward to reading this story.
LOL, Sheri. I am super pleased you’re enjoying Hemi…I mean Hemi’s cover so much 😉
