NOVEMBER, 2017 GENETIC SNARE By: Laura Baumbach The Plot: Bounty hunter Talos bows to pressure to bring his life mate home for the completion of his strict warrior culture‟s bonding ritual. Aidan, dis- placed eighteenth-century Earth pi- rate—light-fingered, sly, charming, and understandably naive about the new world he‟s been thrust into—can‟t wait. Even if it turns out someone wants him dead. The twenty-sixth cen- tury looks different, but it turns out to be a lot like his old life! An Excerpt The candles had stuttered out, leaving the room draped in pale gray shadow. It was a comfortable darkness, one Talos found rest- ful, a spectrum of low light in which his keen eyesight functioned well. Being able to see in the dark and underwater was a definite advantage for stalking prey. Talos was momentarily sated and fully rested after a few hours of sleep. The genetic mandate to claim his new mate at an increasingly awkward rate hadn‟t affected his hunter‟s sense of alertness and physical stamina. His body was cre- ated for the claiming ritual of his race, unlike his unprepared hu- man lover. They would have to bring this need to an end soon if Aidan was to survive it. Reviews Welcome.
