Black Hole Bounty
by Sienna Bronwyn



Destiny is written in the stars? Maybe, but when you’re in a black hole you make your own damn destiny.

It’s not every day you get abducted by an alien general, but then, Jerusa Whichab isn’t having an average day. Earth is fading from view and she’s got a decision to make – cooperate with her despotic, yet unnervingly attractive captor or receive an injection of goo. General Toyeb can’t be trusted, and his body-healing, mind-blowing Theta waves leave her panting for more. But what choice does she have if she’s to stay alive?

None, if enemy bounty hunter Berwyck dal Korth has his way. Intent on capturing Jerusa, he performs a binding ritual to ensure she cannot escape him – a ritual with unforeseen side effects for both of them. Forced into hostile proximity, Berwyck and Jerusa battle to subdue their rising attraction, but will they conquer their desire – or succumb?


My Thoughts on the Black Hole Bounty:

I f you like your alien abduction with a little twist Black Hole Bounty is for you.  Let’s start with Jerusa Whichab.  She is a member of the Kuna Indian tribe.  They live off the coast of Panama and have an oral history that says they are descended from aliens.   Not a fact Jerusa believes until aliens abduct her.  Then there are the other two main characters, General Toyeb and Berwyck dal Korth.  Neither of them fit the bill as heroes.  Both have their really nasty side.  Then there is the year Jerusa is abducted, 1987. 

What follows is a book that includes back story, world building and character development.  Black Hole Bounty tells the beginning of the story and sets the stage for the next two books in the trilogy.  It may set up some romance but it is hard to tell.  Neither Toyeb or Berwyck have come off as great choices although Berwyck seems the better of the two.  There is a lot of story here and a lot left to tell.  Get started with Black Hole Bounty so you are ready when the next two books come out in 2015.

EXCERPTS (Please choose only ONE to use with your post):

Excerpt One:

My skin tingled with awareness. Someone, something was observing me from the shadows. I had to risk a peek, one tiny glance in the direction of that menacing energy.


The voice was male, clipped, but it had a hollow quality, as though it were filtered through a long tunnel. It sounded as if it came from the bottom right corner. I blinked rapidly, but my effort revealed only a fuzzy, humanoid shape. I ached to ask questions, demand answers, but couldn’t see who or what to demand them from. Where the hell were my glasses? Oh. Right. They’d fallen off during the Cessna crash. One minute I was hurtling to my death over my Caribbean island, and the next—the next my body felt as though it were being deconstructed, catapulting through the air and onto a spaceship. An experience my stomach had punctuated by hurling the beans and rice I’d had for lunch.

“Who’s there?” I croaked out. “Show yourself.”

“Are you rational?”

Good question. “Am I on a spaceship?”

“A military war vessel, to be exact.”

“Then I think I’m crazy.”

“Your behavior suggests as much.” This with a hint of irritation.

“Well, you’d act crazy, too, if you’d been through what I have,” I said, none too cautiously. “You abducted me.”

“No, I saved you.”

Was his emphasis on “saved” meant to make me feel grateful? “Thanks, much appreciated, but you have to take me back now.”

A heavy, put-upon sigh. “That is what you always say.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Sienna spent her adolescence staring at the dark skies over the Caribbean coast of Panama, dreaming up romantic adventures she now delights in writing down. She reads, writes and revels in romance, and she’s attracted to off-beat, sexy characters—in fiction and in real life! These days she lives a long way from the Caribbean, but when she drags her husband and children to Hermitage Castle to gaze at the stars, the vast beauty of space makes her feel at home.  Who knows, maybe an alien will pop down and invite them on a ride?
