If you haven’t read any of my Badari Warriors books, here’s the background:
Genetically engineered soldiers of the far future, the Badari were created by alien enemies to fight humans. But then the scientists kidnapped an entire human colony from the Sectors to use as subjects in twisted experiments…the Badari and the humans made common cause, rebelled and escaped the labs. Now they live side by side in a sanctuary valley protected by a powerful Artificial Intelligence, and wage unceasing war on the aliens.
Gabe worked the controls to send the flyer diving as close to the ground as he dared to go at this speed. Proximity alarms blared, warning him of both the terrain underneath and the three flyers on his tail.
Three! Where the seven hells had the Khagrish gotten three armed flyers?
He zigged left as a bolt of energy sizzled past his wing. Making a dramatic move straight up before jinking to the left again, he did a tight loop and banked in the opposite direction. No way was he leading the enemy to the valley where his friends and allies were hidden. He wished he had weapons, but his stolen flyer wasn’t equipped for combat.
Good thing I’m a reckless pilot. He grinned as he executed another daring maneuver. A towering front of gray and black storm clouds loomed ahead, and if he could just get into the maelstrom, he could lose the Khagrish chasing him – the lightning playing across the tops of the anvil shaped clouds didn’t deter him.
The blurb for GABE: Gabe Carter, hotshot pilot and ex-Special Forces soldier, is far from his home in the human Sectors, kidnapped by alien scientists to be the subject of horrifying experiments. Shot down by the enemy over desolate territory far from his Badari allies and gravely injured, Gabe’s only hope is a mysterious woman on the run herself.
Keshara has to decide whether to abandon the human to die of his injuries on a windswept mountain top or give up her own quest for freedom and take him to a place he can be helped. The undeniable spark between them complicates matters.
His attraction to her is off the charts but when she betrays him to the Khagrish enemy, Gabe doesn’t know what to believe. Trapped inside an alien lab bursting with mysteries and lies, his only hope may be to trust her…again.
Because the renegade alien scientist running her own private experiments wants to use him to accomplish her goals and perpetuate the evil, no matter what she has to do to ensure his compliance. Keshara’s life hangs in the balance and Gabe has to make a choice.

A note by the way – although I’m very sad that USA Today is closing the Happy Ever After blog at the end of December, I’ll still be writing for my own blog here, including doing the weekly New Releases reports, and also at Amazing Stories Magazine’s blog and the Love in Panels site. I LOVED writing for HEA and really appreciated their support for scifi romance. HEA will be sorely missed!
