Romantic suspense author Maureen Miller has put out a boxed set of her Beyond Series, so readers can get all three full-length novels for only 99 cents (for a limited time). Maureen sent HEA a Beyond excerpt (and I bet you won't be able to read it and then move on without hopping over to your favorite e-bookseller to click on "buy.")
Here's the blurb about the Beyond Boxed Set:
From USA TODAY best-selling author Maureen A. Miller comes her thrilling Beyond Series. Three full-length novels for a limited-time sale price!
Did you ever wonder what it would be like if an alien spaceship took you from your backyard?
Did you ever think that you would experience an adventure full of danger and romance in a distant galaxy?
Aimee Patterson was about to start college in North Carolina, but then this happened...
Beyond. Aimee Patterson walked into the woods on the other side of the pond. She returned five years later with a tale she could never share.
Beyond: Two Suns. Alone in a desert world, Zak is now a damaged man. Reckless in his battle against the creatures that destroyed his family, he roams under the glare of the two suns, seeing phantoms — seeing Aimee. Five years had passed since Aimee Patterson left the man she loved. For five years she traveled the path of life, always waiting and looking to the stars, hoping that one day he would return for her.
Beyond: Three Paths. After spending years in space on an alien ship, Aimee Patterson is finally coming home. But this time she is not alone. Her lover Zak wants to meet her parents, and her friend Raja wants to experience life on Earth. Both get more than they ever bargained for. It was supposed to be an innocent trip to Earth.... now Aimee, Zak, and Raja are fugitives of the ultimate kind.
Here's an excerpt from book one, Beyond …
Ziggy cocked his head and emitted a low growl. For a moment Aimee wasn't sure whether he was going to dart deeper into the woods or just stand there barking like an insane puppy. But, he surprised her. Ziggy, the traitor, took off towards the pond like a herd of rabid Rottweilers were chasing him.
"Coward!" she yelled, turning to follow. "You could at least wait for me."
At least she'd meant to turn. She'd also meant to follow. Aimee couldn't move. If she'd done what she'd meant to do, she'd be walking nice and easy back around the pond, but she wasn't.
She thought for a moment that her muscles were locked in spasm from the two laps around the track during gym yesterday, but her hands and arms were paralyzed. She tried to clench her fingers into a fist and could feel perspiration bead on her forehead from the effort. She was motionless.
What the hell?
Even her lips could not move to speak those three words.
Light materialized around her as if someone had switched on a spotlight from above. She tried to squint against the vivid assault, but even her eyelids were frozen in place. Instead, all she could do was watch as the light grew brighter, bright enough that she could see through her hands. That freaked her out. Her hands were transparent, and she could see through them to the mottled leaves on the ground below.
The hum intensified and she began to feel lightheaded.
One lurch of her stomach and she felt nothing at all.
