Today’s Teaser Tuesday

Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

beyond the red

Alien queen Kora has a problem as vast as the endless crimson deserts. She’s the first female ruler of her territory in generations, but her people are rioting and call for her violent younger twin brother to take the throne. Despite assassination attempts, a mounting uprising of nomadic human rebels, and pressure to find a mate to help her rule, she’s determined to protect her people from her brother’s would-be tyrannical rule.

Eros is a rebel soldier hated by aliens and human alike for being a half-blood. Yet that doesn’t stop him from defending his people, at least until Kora’s soldiers raze his camp and take him captive. He’s given an ultimatum: be an enslaved bodyguard to Kora, or be executed for his true identity—a secret kept even from him.

When Kora and Eros are framed for the attempted assassination of her betrothed, they flee. Their only chance of survival is to turn themselves in to the high court, where revealing Eros’s secret could mean a swift public execution. But when they uncover a violent plot to end the human insurgency, they must find a way to work together to prevent genocide.

 

Teaser

“As the fire dances around him and he spins through the air with a powerful and unquestionable grace, I stop watching the shi trace orange paths of light in the darkness and focus on him instead. The way he moves with such precision, the way the bronze light catches the angles and valleys of his perfectly sculpted arms and torso… He has never looked more beautiful to me. And by the end of the night, I will be engaged to marry him.”
