Today, Out of Control Characters welcomes Marie Lavender, a great friend and prolific author, to our blog. Marie’s latest book, a science fiction romance novel, Blue Vision, released this week and we are giving her a chance to tell you all about it.
Brooke Sanders just wants to get away from her life for a while. A remote cabin in Montana fits the bill. She doesn’t expect to encounter a mysterious stranger with unusual blue eyes, or events that cannot be explained…
Colin Fielding is on a mission – scout a planet and return home to Endhivar. Simple really. What he doesn’t anticipate is that fate has a pretty twisted sense of humor. Suddenly, this human calls to him, every part of him, like the call of a true mate, and he can’t deny the connection as he gets closer to her.
Little do they know, someone is out to do them harm, as well as the world Brooke holds so dear. Can they stop what’s coming before it’s too late? Or will the universe lose a perfect gem?
Ganardebragh pressed a button on the screen and suddenly the visor opened. The vessel hovered on the outer edges of the Fulnax Galaxy. Numerous glowing stars dotted the space he traveled in. A shooting red star went past him and a smile hovered over his lips. Up here, he thought, it was perfect. The world felt infinite, full of possibilities.
Turning, he typed his destination into the computer.
A voice announced in the cockpit, “Earth…population 7 billion, 271 million, 282 thousand, 194. Estimated arrival—”
Then there was only silence.
He tapped the screen. “Repeat.”
A hush came through the inner compartment of the ship.
Ganardebragh hit a button. “Estimated arrival, computer?”
He sighed. Already, a glitch with the navigation system? This wasn’t good news. Still, he took a deep breath, knowing he would arrive, eventually. The computer knew the way, as there had been previous reconnaissance missions. He settled back in the pilot’s seat, unable to shake the instinct that some great change was coming for him. The sensation dogged at him, prickled along the back of his neck, as he clicked a pale green button. The warp drive activated, allowing the ship to jump through hyperspace once more. He wasn’t certain what the problem was, or when it would happen. Journeys could be uncertain. Even with all the preparation Endhivarians could manage for a scouting mission, the one factor which could never be entirely accounted for was a planet’s inhabitants. Blending in was paramount to the cause, though, and he’d learned to do it well.
He tried to brush off the odd sensation that something was wrong, but to no avail.
