Michael Dirubio is a new author on the scene writing hard science fiction. I swear never to write a book about an elf, a quest, or a sword. Not that there is anything wrong with fantasy, I love it! I just miss Heinlein, Poul Anderson and Asimov. I served twenty years in the US Military on submarines so my lack of social skills is perfectly suited to being a writer. I don't currently plan to write a huge series. I don't want to tie myself down to the same characters. I have some published now and ideas for about ten more in my head. I write fairly quickly so ideally I plan to put out a book a year. 

Additionally, I think it is incumbent upon me to let you know I write simply for myself. I don't care for money or fame. If you have a criticism or I have made a mistake, please feel free to share it but I reserve the right to disregard all. I encourage anyone who thinks they can do better to please try. That's how I started: a simple premise: what if I were the program manger for a Mars Mission. I used my knowledge of the defense industry to look at that idea. My other books are similar, why did they do that? As for the rest, age, where I live and family? Unimportant but late fifties. I live in the bay area and have a long suffering wife.

desperately wanted to hear from Edmund!
Escaping Solitude (Escape Trilogy #2) - Sara Dobie Bauer
I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. Andrew takes Edmund back to civilization, to his home in New Orleans. Andrew's coven has some members who wish to harm Edmund, to take him away from Andrew and Andrew will not have it. To turn Edmund, Andrew needs an Elder so Edmund is let lose in the coven's library to find him. Then Andrew is called home to England, so the trip to find the Elder is put on hold. That is, til a terrible accident on board. Again, written only from Andrew's point of view, in the first person/present tense, same as book one. Knowing this going in, made it easier to overlook that personal quirk that I don't much care for books written as such. And of COURSE I wanted to hear from Edmund! There were several keys points along the way that I really needed to hear what he was thinking. Andrew introduces Edmund to some of his more baser pleasures, several of them, in the club with the red door, and oh that was such a surprise cos I did not see that one coming at me! So bloody hot! He also introduces Edmund to his coven's parties. But rather than Andrew go all ALPHA-protect-what-is-mine, it's Edmund who goes all don't-touch-what-isn't-yours on Felix, the one who touches Edmund. Oh of course Andrew wanted to rip Felix' head off for that, but he left Edmund stake the claim of Andrew, rather than the other way round. The trip home to England brought some more surprises, but also tragedy, when there is a storm. And we're left hanging! Cliff hanger, people, of the highest order! Not QUITE the one I was expecting, but still a massive one, that could still go either way! And I have to wait til Jan next year for the final part, and Lord is that gonna be a wait!! So, ONLY, only because Edmund doesn't have his say, because I think if he had, this may well have been a 5 star review... 4 stars

Sidney’s Triple Shot (Apache Crossing #1) by Lori King
Sidney’s Triple Shot (Apache Crossing #1) - Lori King

Sidney's Triple Shot is the first book in the Apache Crossing series, and I honestly can't wait to read more in what I am sure will be an amazing series. 

 

Sidney escapes from an abusive relationship and zig-zags across America, trying to leave her ex-fiance behind. The trigger for her leaving may come as a surprise, as she suffered through something even worse and stayed. I guess it was the straw that broke the camel's back. She makes her way to Apache Crossing, and finds work as a bartender at the Triple Shot. She is understandably nervous, especially around the brothers who own the bar.

 

Xavier, Tyce, and Noah, are all very different, but they all agree to go after Sidney. They see something in her that intrigues them, and brings out their protective instincts. Which is a good thing, as she is going to need them.

 

This was a well-paced story that is both heart-breaking in places, and also full of love and hope. I did find Sidney to be annoying at times, even as I tried to make allowances for her. For someone so scared of being caught by Robert, she has no problem doing stupid things, even after she thinks she is being watched. The three guys had more patience with her than I would have!

 

With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has a wonderful cast of characters, and I hope to read their stories too. Steamy in places, tender in others, this book has a bit of something for everyone. Definitely recommended by me.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Alien Indiscretions (World of Kalquor #9) by Tracy St. John
Alien Indiscretions (World of Kalquor #9) - Tracy St. John

Alien Indiscretions is the ninth book in the Worlds of Kalquor series. I have read some of these before, but not all of them. I would recommend you read the series though, as previous characters and relationships are mentioned.

 

Crissy and Tasha are Jessica's cousins, and have made their way to Kalquor to start a new life, one where they can be with whomever they wish. Crissy takes an instant dislike to one of the councillors, but is more than happy to push them onto her twin. Of course, that doesn't happen, and Crissy and the Kalquorians need to figure a lot of things out whilst they still have the chance.

 

This is definitely a case of those that know, see a different person, because at first glance Crissy is uncouth, brash, and downright rude at times. However, those that know her, love her. And there is enough about her to catch the interest of two out of the three Kalquorians.

 

This story has a lot of backstory to it, with an overall story arc playing a BIG part of this story. For that reason, I would definitely recommend reading some of the others before this one. It was all well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing is smooth, and there are plenty of sexy scenes for your titillation.

 

If you have read any of these books before, then I can absolutely recommend it. If you haven't, then I still recommend it, but would suggest you start the series properly first.
