#SFFSAT Snippet: Refugees On Urloon

For the next few weeks I'm posting snippets from my upcoming SFR release, Refugees On Urloon. This snippet is from my heroine Svana's POV.


Her heart beat faster as she walked outside toward the beach. I am not going to participate in the fertility festival, she reminded herself. Still, it was the closest thing to a party she had attended for years, the last being a small festivity when her daughter turned sixteen.

Liam would be there. He might participate, with an Urloon woman. Or maybe a crew member. The thought made her throat tighten. Oh just be honest, she scolded herself. You want him to participate with you--you want it to be an Urloon marriage. Like a romance tale.

  2. I love the way this snippet communicates that tense nervous feeling when a person first realizes they are attracted to someone. I got a few butterflies in my stomach reading it. Great Snippet!

    By the way, I started "Starlander's Myth" this week and I'm loving it!

  8. Cary-- there are some hot scenes in refuges, though I wouldn't classify it as erotic romance. Sensual, though.

    Nicole--I hope you enjoy Starlander's Myth. Have started a second book in the trilogy.

    Misa--you area romantic! :)

    Patrick-- Unexpectecd happening at this Moonfest!

    T.M. Hunter-- The Moonfest is certainly key to the entire story.

    Cassandra-- I have three teen daughters and could SO relate to Svana!
