Rebellion
by Rowan Bishop

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  Science Fiction Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Akyra Roux is an up-and-coming Security Operations commander: ambitious, dedicated, and fearless. Her soldiers have a reputation for getting the job done and cracking skulls, earning her a perilous mission to the far fringes of the galaxy.

As soon as she lands, however, Akyra learns the hard way that rival factions have a lot to gain by seeing her fail, no matter what the cost…

Captain Raemus Petrus is the hunky, charismatic leader of the genetically-engineered Titans stationed at the outpost. He has a job to do and battles to fight, and he doesn’t let anything get in his way. However, when Akyra and her team of hot-blooded females land on the planet, his need to protect her and his duty to betray her collide…

Can Raemus, engineered to be ruthless, prove he has enough humanity buried inside his heart to salvage his honor, save Akyra, and ultimately prove his ability to love?

Can Akyra, running from her past, learn to lose control of the one thing holding her back, her own heart?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT THREE:

“You’d give all this up?” Raemus pointed to the cluttered mess of the vehicle maintenance shed they’d been facing the whole time, “for a family?”

Akyra shrugged. “Family isn’t an option anymore.” She rubbed the birth control bolt deep in the skin of her shoulder, the one engineered with a homing beacon that would bring arrest, conviction, and death if removed from her body. “Being really good at fighting for The Church is all I got.” She felt pressure behind her eyes, and her nose began to itch, but she shook it off. “That’s why I’m the best commander I can be.” Akyra rubbed her hands against the intensifying cold. “What’s your excuse?”

Raemus didn’t miss any signs of sadness spreading over Akyra’s body, the slight slouch, the successive blinks, the three irregular deep breaths. “I’m with you,” he said. “I get it. When shooting bad guys gets you through the day, might as well become the best at it.”

She laughed through the frog in her throat. “Yes. Exactly.”

“Well, let’s see… I can let you shoot Levi over there if that’ll make you feel any better.”

She blurted out a big laugh.

Her smile! Raemus thought. Rich and honest. So… real.

GUEST POST:

Why I love Writing the Titan Romance Series

Theme is the most important commitment to writing any book. Without theme, even the most intoxicating, sexy story can leave a reader feeling unfulfilled by the end—often not even knowing why. Championing important ideas and questions, often those that define us as humans, is an exciting business. For me, it's the joy of writing.

My job is to pick an important question, choose a side, then spend an entire novel challenging the answer until I know it's correct. The best theme for any romance novel is Love Conquers All, and it's my absolute favorite. As a human, I believe love does conquer everything in the end. As a writer, however, my job is to make love work awfully hard to pull it off.

The entire Titan Romance series is a grueling test of love's ability to prevail. And that's going to make for some electrifying, dramatic romance. And what better setting to test the breadth of love's reach then the entire galaxy throughout which a future humanity is struggling?

Don't worry. Love will always conquer all. But it's going to take one heck of a road trip to prove it.

It's also requires the right kind of heroes and heroines to shoulder such a task. We're going to need strong women and big, hunky, confident men. And when I say men, I really mean genetically-engineered warriors of the future!

Alpha males come in a great gamut of shapes and sizes. I'm especially attracted to the idea of alphas as authentic leaders: powerful males who care about their followers, who listen, who trust others, who inspire with their passion, focus, and persistence—but who still get what they want.

No surprise, I find this to be the sexiest combination possible. And if I'm going to spend so many long hours creating a fictitious man to spend time with, why not make him tickle me in all the right places?

The leader of the genetically-engineered Titans, Raemus, knows his followers have chosen him as their leader. He also knows they won't stick around if he only used the nip-and-bark style of an alpha-hole.

The Titan Romance series follows the characters from oppression to freedom, so it'll take the right kind of alpha to lead everyone there. And since the overarching theme is Love Conquers All, the right kind of alpha is going to be an authentic leader.

That said, he's not going to be squeamish about completely obliterating his enemies. Grrrr...

Finally, I grew up under the impression that spirituality and sexuality were diametrically opposed. A lot of us did. Therefore, I wanted to smash them together and see what happened. But, you know, in the distant future. In the first books of the series, The Church of Nova Sol is an oppressive theocracy ruling the galaxy, a religion controlling the galaxy with an iron fist, including people's sexual functions. But as the rebellion begins, people experience both free spirituality and free sexuality. And the merger of the two. Frankly, for me it's a taboo I couldn't resist writing about!

I hope you get a chance to pick up Rebellion, the first book in the series, and give it a shot. If the ideas and themes I mentioned speak to you, then it might just be up your alley!

Lots of love,
Rowan
