I’m excited to share the cover for MAKO’S BOUNTY, a Decadent 1-Night Stand story from BLUE GALAXY author Diane Dooley. One good thing about the 1-Night Stand series is that
It's reassuring to know that readers can expect a story along with the erotic journey. Each 1-Night Stand story centers around the concept of a one-night stand, which is arranged by the mysterious Madame Evangeline, a person who owns the exclusive online dating service. All subgenres are considered, so this imprint of Decadent's is yet another way for readers to find science fiction romance stories.
MAKO’S BOUNTY will release on March 13, 2012. Here’s the blurb:
For nine long months, at the behest of the evil Ravenscorp, Mako Dolan has been hunting the space pirate they call The Saint. Now she’s finally lured her prey to a one night stand with a mysterious woman—herself. But Vin Sainte is not at all what she expected. Far from being a ruthless space pirate, his main occupation seems to be rescuing nuns, adopting orphans and praying like a champ.
For nine long months Vin Sainte has been fleeing the bounty hunter from one temporary refuge to the next. Now he’s got Mako exactly where he wants her: weak from gravity sickness and ripe for conversion. Problem is he didn’t expect a foul-mouthed, hard-as-nails bounty hunter to be such a devoted daughter. His head on a platter is Ravenscorp’s price for her mother’s freedom.
They have less than twenty four hours. One will win; one will lose. Mako might be a fearsome predator, but Vin has the Lord on his side. Who will win the bounty?
I love the heroine-centric cover. The extra special treat is that the heroine is not only a bounty hunter, but a person of color. Sweet.
And a hero who prays “like a champ?” That’s gotta be a first.
I’m definitely intrigued. What about you?
