Author Bio:

M.A. Church is a true Southern belle who spent many years in the elementary education sector. Now she spends her days lost in fantasy worlds, arguing with hardheaded aliens on far-off planets, herding her numerous shifters, or trying to tempt her country boys away from their fishing poles. It’s a full time job, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!

When not writing, she’s exploring the latest M/M novel to hit the market, watching her beloved Steelers, or sitting glued to HGTV. That’s if she’s not on the back porch tending to the demanding wildlife around the pond in the backyard. The ducks are very outspoken. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and they have two children.

She was a finalist in the Rainbow awards for 2013.

To survive is to adapt…

Dale Michaels knows all about change. As he settles into his new life with the Tah’Narian starship captain Keyno Shou, Dale has adapted to life with an alien, space travel, and having his body mutated so he can carry a young. He’s closed the chapter on his old life.

Living on Tah’Nar, Dale has a loving mate and good friends. He’s helped cement peace with the Onfre. Sure, being double-dosed during his harvest led to some serious drama, but that’s over. Dale’s happy.
\
But life is never that simple.

Even though Dale loves Keyno, he still struggles with the way the Tah’Narians harvest young males as mates. Dale finds himself hijacked by his own body, courtesy of his extra dose of Tah’Narian DNA. Then there’s the devastating secret his mate, Keyno, has hid all this time. And if all that isn’t enough, outside forces threaten to rip Dale’s hard-won peace apart as well.

Join Dale for a non-stop adventure and a love that crosses several worlds and transcends space.

The Harvest: Journey’s End Exclusive Excerpt:

Book #2 in The Harvest series

Excerpt:

(The excerpt is from estrus (or heat) for Dale.)

Within seconds, his barb locked us together, making me cry out from the pressure of it engaging inside me. Keyno dropped down on top of me, propped up on his elbows, holding me close while I struggled to breathe. Lovingly, he wiped the sweaty hair away from my face while he murmured softly to me.

Finally, my brain engaged, and I remembered how to speak. Questions ran around in my head as my chest heaved.

“What was—fucking hell, what was…?” I was sweaty, dizzy, hoarse from screaming, and more than a little freaked out by what had just happened. “I don’t know what that was, but it was unlike anything I have ever felt, and scary as shit.”

“It’s normal, love. It has to do with your new womb, and the fact that you’re producing eggs now. Those eggs want to be fertilized; it’s a biological imperative. Your hormones are rising, driving your body to have sex, and when you do, your body rewards you. The orgasms you have during this time are different, because the pathway to your womb is contracting, drawing my seed up. Think massive g-spot and anal orgasm.”

A PaulB Review: Galactic Treasure (Earth Con #2) by Theodora Marie Adams

Standard

Rating 3 out of 5 stars

Earth Con Galactic TreasureTolkian warriors Zaraheed and Valvik are sent to Earth to search for the ancient Ark scrolls. They make their way to Earth Con, a science fiction convention in Austin, Texas. They meet rising author Connor Masterson. The three then bond during the conference while the aliens track down the missing scrolls before the space pirate G’herkon finds them.

Zaraheed and Valvik are sent to Earth by General Tsubotai in search of the Ark scrolls. These scrolls contain the ancient history of their people and might provide answers to why their people were dying earlier than expected. Posing as Zack and Victor, the two go to Austin, Texas to a science fiction convention called Earth Con. While standing in line to enter, they meet Connor Masterson, a native of the city. Connor, who writes magna that closely follows the history of the Tolkian, is taken by the two travelers. He offers to show them around the city during the duration and after the conference. Connor falls for the foreign travelers. Zack and Victor must protect their new human lover while searching for the scrolls before a space pirate finds them first.

The romance between the three characters seemed to lack something for me. It started out as the aliens talking about someone in line at the convention as a way to have fun while trying to complete their mission. Meanwhile, Connor, who believes he is just an average guy, cannot believe that not one but two studs are after him. They all get hot and heavy after a party in which Connor becomes inebriated by alien alcohol. Once an alien doctor tells the pair that they have bonded with Connor, they know that their lives are tied together. But then once they have to leave, they decide to court Connor while have a really long distance relationship. The situation just did not add up for me. However, the sex scenes were well written, which can be a challenge when it comes to threesomes.

The other part of the book concerns the search for the scrolls. The plot twist involving the space pirate for me seemed to be telegraphed too much.

It was a decent book but the ending felt hollow for me.

The cover art by Karen Fox depicts our three protagonists as described by the author. The long braids and pointed ears of the aliens are well done.
