What Did He Say? Weekend Writing Warriors

Sharing now from my newly released scifi romance Mateer (A Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Novel): Sectors New Allies Series Book 2. Yup, a mouthful LOL!

I’ve jumped ahead again to right after the moment when Mateer and Megan first met, as prisoners in the Khagrish lab, and he said her sister’s name. I’ve skipped a bit where he tried to escape, was paralyzed by the guards ands taken away. Punctuation a bit wonky to meet our rules – sorry!

The excerpt: 

The guard who’d struck her earlier grabbed Megan by the shoulder, “What did the Badari say to you?”

“The who? The wounded man?” She shook her head, “I don’t know—nonsense syllables – maybe his own language?”

The guard stared at her for a moment longer before releasing her with a shove. Gesturing to the entire group with his weapon, he said, “Move out, prisoners – I don’t have all night to waste escorting you to your new home.”

As they walked, Megan’s head whirled with speculation about the prisoner she’d seen and how or when he’d met Lily. Was his knowledge of her twin a good thing or a bad thing? Megan wished she could have a chance to talk to him. Even wounded and in the obvious grip of battle rage, he’d been compelling, his astonished expression when he looked at her intriguing…but she’d probably never see him again, not in this chamber of horrors.

mateerThe Blurb:

Megan Garrison, a doctor at the Sectors Amarcae 7 colony, goes to sleep one night as usual only to wake up in her nightgown, strapped to a table in an alien lab, destined to be the subject of terrifying experiments. Granted a brief reprieve, Megan and the other kidnapped humans are released in the middle of a forestlike enclosure on this unknown world and told to survive as best they can for now.

Her only hope is Mateer, the genetically engineered alien warrior imprisoned with the humans. He knows more than he’s sharing about this planet, their captors and the fate of other humans, including perhaps her own sisters. Turns out everyone from her colony has been kidnapped by the Khagrish, a ruthless race of alien scientists. Working for enemies of the human-led Sectors, the Khagrish have created the Badari to be super soldiers.

Mateer, a tough Badari enforcer, now a rebel, is captured while infiltrating the lab to help his pack bring it down. He’s also been ordered by his leaders to search for Megan and save her life at all costs. Tortured by the enemy, he’s offered one chance at survival – convince Megan to become his mate and assist the Khagrish with further experiments.

As the situation at the lab grows worse, Megan struggles against her deep attraction to Mateer, while she does her best to shield the other humans from the terrible Khagrish experiments. For his part, Mateer knows she really is his fated mate and despairs of being able to keep her safe, as the rebel attack is delayed and she fights the truth of their bond.

Will they be able to work together to defeat Khagrish plans and preserve human lives until the promised rescue happens? And what of their future together – will Megan accept Mateer as her true mate, or walk away if she’s freed?

  1. I admire her courage, not just in this scene but through the book. She isn’t a victim. Neither is Mateer. Great snippet.

  2. She covered for him well. I hope she survives and gets a chance to get the answers she wants. A great snippet!

  3. Heroine… “I’ll never see him again.” Hero… “I’ll do everything in my power to save her.” Oh yeah, they’ll meet up again. 😉

  4. I checked out the previous excerpt that I missed last week to see what he said. Her reaction makes sense now 🙂 She must have been shaken by that, and good she was quick-witted enough to conceal it.

  5. Great snippet, yes she’s got to meet him again – ahsn’t she! I like the way she managed to cover for him and how strong she is in such a strange and perilous posiition.

  6. Great snippet, Veronica! And since I’m late to the party today can I get away with saying that I agree with what everyone else wrote? 🙂 And I also LOVE your covers.
