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

I’ve moved ahead again. The alien scientist in charge, Lampergg, has ordered the humans taken outside. Mateer, who has been undergoing torture in a separate area, is brought to join them for the first time, but has passed out from the severe treatment. Harker is a blow hard human prisoner with whom Megan, who’s a medical doctor, has already had one run-in. Punctuation a bit wonky to meet our rules – sorry! Slight differences from the published version, to fit the rules here.

The excerpt: 

“We’re setting you free for a while,” Lampergg said, making an expansive gesture toward the horizon, “Fourteen days to be exact. I expect you to explore the area, show us how capable you humans are of surviving in the wilderness, and get acclimated to the planet.” He grinned, “See if there are any holes in our perimeter – I’ve heard it said your species is quite clever. You will take him with you during this experiment,” the scientist said next, pointing at the injured prisoner, who lay unmoving.

Harker shook his head and objected loudly, “Man’s literally dead weight. We’re not going to carry him – Why should we? He’s nothing to us.”

“I’ll have him executed right now where he lies if you don’t.” In response to a signal from the scientist, a guard stepped to the invalid and rested the lethal tip of his pulse rifle against the man’s skull. Raising his bushy yellow eyebrows and running his gaze over the assembled people, Lampergg said, “What manner of beings are you humans?”

Outraged, Megan confronted Harker, “We can’t leave him here to be killed in cold blood – we have to try to help him.”

The Badari Warriors SciFi Romance Series canva both coversThe 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. Oh my gosh! So much going on in this snippet! They’re letting them go as an experiment? That in itself sounds suspicious. And I hope they don’t leave him there to be executed. A fabulous snippet! 🙂

  2. Letting them go to test for holes in the perimeter… Nice!

    And testing them to see if they’ll take the injured man. Another nice move.

    Wonderful possibilities here!

  3. Tough decision – carry around an injured prisoner who is going to use up resources – food and water etc or let him die – perfect conflict to put your characters in. Tweeted.

  4. Well I agree that they shouldn’t leave him to fend for himself. They should at least try and help him. I’m curious to know how Harker will react. Neat snippet!

  5. I’m curious to see Harker’s response to this threat. He made his declaration before Lampergg upped the stakes. His reaction now would reveal the kind of man he truly is.

  6. Yes, this certainly sounds like a test on more than one front by the Khagrish, and while I can see the difficulties in taking Mateer with them, he’s a heartless so and so if he thinks they can just leave him to be killed. Great conflict in this scene.
