Book Spotlight and Excerpt: While You Were Away by D.J. Davis



Kev Thorsin has returned from a twenty-year war campaign across the stars, battle-weary and ready to settle down with the woman he was forced to leave behind. Amidst treachery that’s left his transport ship a floating hulk, he learns his own world has been overthrown by a corrupt regime. He’s driven to return to the only woman that’s been on his mind since the day he left.
His fiancé, Rianna Elain, is in the thick of it back home with a group of freedom fighters known as Libertas headed by the charismatic Terrill Briggs, a flirtatious yet honorable man who wants to see the people free once more and will go to great lengths to see it through. They are on the run from security forces and a noose that closes tighter each day.
In the midst of chaos, the two meet once more and their love for each other becomes a raging fire of passion hotter than the sun, an unstoppable force.  Hope for their future together rekindles, along with desires long pushed aside. A plan is hatched to take to the stars, bringing the remaining members of Libertas and their families to a place where they can live in safety, far off the grid, if they can just evade evil forces and get off the rock—a task easier said than done.  But will they succeed in starting a new life beyond Tetraparagon rule or will they live out their remaining days in hiding from a hand that stretches into the very black of space?

Reader Alert!  Warning!  Strong characters, mind-blowing action and steamy sex ahead.  Side effects 
may include a racing heart; heavy breathing and a need to take a hot shower with someone you love.

To My Readers:  I love writing heroes and heroines who are strong and confident in their own right, but who become so much more together than apart, a partner they can rely on when the chips are down and the crap’s about to hit the fan in the worst way.  The action explodes from the first pages, hot and heavy, and carries you through to a climax both satisfying and thrilling.  I hope you enjoy While You Were Away, my first work with Red Sage, and will join me for many more to come."       

About the Author: In truth, D. J. Davis is the definitive team of awesomeness that is Daniel and Jayne Davis.  Daniel has been writing science fiction and fantasy since he could hold a pencil.  Jayne is his grounding force, a writer in her own right, and his go-to for advice and support, as well as his brilliant wife.  Always one to push the boundaries, Daniel strives to write quality science fiction and fantasy with a love story behind it that will excite and titillate.  This powerful duo hits the ground running with tales that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

Excerpt:
“What are you going to do?” Rianna asked, concerned.
“Something stupid.”
The enemy ship was drawing into firing arc once more and they were almost out of options.  Kev pulled the connector from his case again and jacked himself into the computer.  The ship rocked with another direct hit as Kev reached up and hit a button.  The ship lurched and shuddered as if it was going to fall apart.
“You crazy mother—!” came Terrill’s shocked shout.
The transport lurched, the sound of groaning metal drawn out like some monstrous scream, and then the stars disappeared.
