I Have Cover Art!!!!

My cover artist, Dawne, has worked her magic again:)  I love how she captured GiNae's blue hair:)

Here's the blurb and excerpt:
Still mourning the tragic death of his beautiful mate, could another Chosen one already be waiting for NiKoh SiLah? To avoid what he’s not ready to accept, he throws himself into his work at Planet Security.

Leaving the Academy behind to follow her dream of working with animals, GiNae SoJae returns home. Preoccupied with work and not ready to take a mate, she’s horrified when her body enters Maturity. GiNae fights the changes occurring within her. But during nightly dreams she cannot control, an unknown man teaches her the secrets of her body.

Will NiKoh and GiNae succumb to the paths they think have been chosen for them or will they discover the true Chosen life that awaits them?

“NiKoh, your pin has something wrong with it.”

NiKoh looked down at the Bonding Pin he had worn for the past sixteen years and frowned.  The marital knot in the center of his family crest had separated.  “It may have done that after BeSai’s death.”  His voice wavered a bit.  “I had not noticed.  Did yours do that, Mother?”

ReNae stepped closer to him and examined the pin.  “You are young enough to take another Chosen.  I have heard of this happening, and it usually means you are close to meeting her or have already done so.”  She peered into her son’s eyes.  “Are you aware of this?”

NiKoh shook his head, but a sudden vision of him with GiNae in his arms made him blanch and brought him up short.  No…it is not possible!

“NiKoh?”  His mother’s voice snapped him back to the present.

He shook his head to rid the picture in his mind.  “I am sorry.  So much has happened lately and I was not paying attention.  I need to return to the office.  Blessings, Mother.  KiRah.”  NiKoh teleported back to his office and told LyDie not to disturb him.

GiNae?  But she has not reached Maturity yet!  

Maybe she is entering the first stages.  I have noticed I enjoy her company at our evening meal, and thought she seemed more relaxed around me.  I do not think I have been visiting her in the dream state…I may have to activate the sensors tonight.  If I remember correctly, BeSai and I had coordinating dreams.

But I remembered those!  Surely I would remember dreams.  I do not feel any different toward her than I did when she first came to live with us or even returned home from the Academy.

NiKoh paced the length of his office, searching his feelings.  Aside from his initial embarrassment at being caught self-pleasuring himself the night GiNae returned home from the Academy, he had not given her much thought, until demanding they join him for the evening meal.  Truthfully, it had been ViShe’s conversation he craved, but since GiNae had revealed an ability to tell humorous stories about her day, he found himself looking forward to seeing her.  But that did not mean she is my Chosen, does it?  It has been nearly twenty years since I went through this! 

At this time, NiKoh is due to release April 13th, but aside from having to write a prologue, the book is finished, with the exception of the final proof.  I'm hoping NiKoh will be released before my trip to That Book Place Author's Fair in Madison, In on April 4th.

Stay tuned!
