Yolanda Sfetsos Tags Her Sci-Fi Romance, SHIVER


[Heather's introduction: Author Yolanda Sfetsos writes a science fiction romance series by the name of Recast. The next book, SHIVER, will be released by Samhain Publishing on January 7, 2014. In light of her forthcoming book, I invited Ms. Sfetsos aboard to tag her book for us. Entertaining, yet informative!]

I’d like to thank Heather for having me over, as well as suggesting that I come up with some tags for my SFR story, SHIVER. This is the third installment in my Recast series.

Here they are:

*Hero is an arena gladiator with a severe blood craving
*Vampires in SF
*Rebellious heroine not afraid to get her hands dirty to help others
*Psychic powers in SF
*An instant attraction hot enough to melt the ice caps
*Set inside an ice castle located in the middle of an icy tundra
*A control freak, meddling mother running a hidden dirty business
*The galaxy’s most dysfunctional family with way too many secrets
*A secondary character begging for his story to be told
*Generous side serving of cyberpunk with bots, AI, active Network and an evolving processor
*Action-adventure quotient: high
*Heat level: passionate, but sweet

Want to know more? Here's a link to the excerpt.

Thanks for reading,
Yolanda

RECAST blurb:

Blood made him a monster. Passion could be his salvation.

After narrowly escaping brutal captivity in the Clash Arena and the bite of a bloodsucking creature, all Eniell Knox wants is to get off the crappy planet that ruined his life. When he steals an abandoned ship and is shot down over freezing northern Fray, he finds nothing but more trouble. An alluring young woman who stirs his hunger—and her shackle-happy mother—could push him over the edge.

Day after day, Lian Shan lives like a prisoner, fending off a parade of creepy potential husbands her mother tries to force upon her. She longs to experience life outside the confines of her ice castle and meet the man whose face haunts her dreams.

When a handsome, mysterious man crashes onto the estate her world breaks apart, spilling unfathomable secrets. Some of them her own.

Though Eniell and Lian’s mutual attraction explodes off any known star chart, there’s something her dreams left out—he’s been bitten by a monster. Which means if he turns into one, the first thing on his menu could be her neck… 

Warning: This book contains shared temptation hot enough to melt ice caps, a warrior with a blood craving, a rebellious heroine who isn’t afraid to share hers, and the galaxy’s most dysfunctional family.
