Excerpt: 

Vic hunched down in the tree line, using the tall grass to hide in as he watched the ranch Ira had instructed them to visit. Log-cabin-type home. Nice, covered wraparound porch with a couple of rockers. A large fenced-off area behind showed several horses grazing, tails flipping around as they enjoyed the warm sunshine.

Grinding his teeth together, he clutched at the ground, cursing the circumstances that had him squatting in the dirt instead of sipping a cool drink on his own porch. He’d always envisioned having the type of home Cole had, but with the resistance and Sector at odds, Vic doubted his dream of owning a homestead would ever come true. Needing to concentrate on making sure no Sector troops were hanging around, he took a deep breath and shelved the envy coursing through him.

Some dryer stalks rustled behind him, and all his senses came alive. Ready to spring into action and fight if need be, he calmed instantly when Quinn knelt beside him, distracting him from his observation by lightly brushing against him. Glancing at the man out of the corner of his eye, Vic savored the tingling sensation running up his arm.

“Are we going to go in?” Quinn asked.

Vic turned his head to address the question. No space seemed to separate them. So very close. His heart skipped a beat at Quinn’s nearness. Too close? his mind wondered. No, both his heart and head answered as an overwhelming urge to kiss the man gripped him.

Would Quinn accept my advance or punch me in the face?

Instead of acting on his impulse, he answered. “Me,” he said in a husky tone. “Not we.”

Quinn glanced at his lips, licked his own, then looked back up. “Vic.”

His name came out breathy, like a caress. Every instinct Vic had wanted Quinn to give him a signal, to lean closer. As he breathed in the other man’s scent, reminding him of the mountain stream and pine trees near the farm, desire hit him hard, but a sliver of sanity prevailed.

Then Quinn moved his face forward … in his direction.

“Don’t,” Vic murmured.

“Why not?” Quinn asked in a silky, yet challenging tone.

“We shouldn’t.” Despite his words, he shifted toward Quinn.

“Again I ask, why not?”

“There’s … danger.”

Quinn raised an eyebrow. “There’s always danger.”

Vic bobbed his head once, silently agreeing with his statement. “What about Meagan?”

“What about us right now? I know you feel the pull. Our chemistry.”

Vic wanted to ignore Quinn’s question and deny his claim, because it was neither the time nor the place, but he couldn’t. A definite attraction existed between them. He sighed. “Oh, Quinn.”

“Vic, I want to kiss you.”

He couldn’t ignore the plea or his own desire. Cupping Quinn’s face, he brushed his thumb over his lips, giving him enough time to pull away if he wanted. Quinn didn’t move. Their mouths met, featherlike at first, until Vic didn’t have the strength to fight the sexual desire blazing between them. He wanted to extinguish the yearning, tame the flames of attraction so he could concentrate on getting them all safely back to Las Vegas. But a small voice taunted him.

Just one kiss.

Okay, he thought, just one to slake his thirst for an intimacy he hadn’t experienced in a while. Wrapping his hand around the back of Quinn’s neck, he deepened the kiss. Molding their lips together perfectly. A fire ignited in his blood, burning through him. As their tongues swirled together, the caressing shock waves tore through his soul, altering all he thought he knew about simple lust.

One’s not enough. How can I possibly let him go now?

The thought made him gasp for air. Vic broke the kiss and stared deep into Quinn’s eyes, amazed to see his own arousal mirrored in the sky-blue depths.

As a youngster growing up in the cobbled streets of Stockport, UK, Clayton Graham read a lot of Science Fiction. He loved the ‘old school’ masters such as HG Wells, Jules Verne, Isaac Asimov and John Wyndham. As he left those formative years behind, he penned short stories when he could find a rare quiet moment amidst life’s usual distractions.
He settled in Victoria, Australia, in 1982. A retired aerospace engineer who worked in structural design and research, Clayton has always had an interest in Science Fiction and where it places humankind within a universe we are only just starting to understand.
Clayton loves animals, including well behaved pets, and all the natural world, and is a member of Australian Geographic.
Combining future science with the paranormal is his passion. ‘Milijun’, his first novel, was published in 2016. It explores first contact and genetic engineering under an alien invasion. Second novel, ‘Saving Paludis’, was published in 2018. This book is more of a space opera and hard science fiction, but reflects all of mankind’s emotions: love, power, greed, comradeship and sacrifice.
The exciting Milijun Book 2, entitled ‘Amidst Alien Stars’, was released in December 2019: this is the second novel in the Milijun Series.
The novels are light years from each other, but share the future adventures of mankind in an expansive universe as a common theme.
In between novels Clayton has published ‘Silently in the Night’, a collection of short stories where, among many other adventures, you can sympathize with a doomed husband, connect with an altruistic robot, explore an isolated Scottish isle and touch down on a far-flung asteroid. Work is now underway on a second anthology of Sci-Fi short stories.

How Six Became Six ‘Lights Out’ #ScienceFiction @kayelleallen @SDSXXTours

Lights Out
Bringer of Chaos: How Six Became Six
by Kayelle Allen
Genre: Science Fiction
Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You’ll live forever, they said. You’ll
save mankind, they said. They didn’t say that to do it, first he had
to die.
When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady
hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three
agonizing resurrections later, he’s assigned duty on the space
station Enderium Six.
He’s facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps
exists.
Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already
dead and this mission is codenamed “Lights Out.” No,
there’s more to this than he can see.
To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and
this time–somehow–find a way to keep himself alive…
Tornahdo is facing his most dangerous mission, the very reason Ghost Corps
exists. He must take out the king responsible for every war
between humans and Ultras since the origin of the Ultra bloodline.
If he succeeds, the war is over.
If he doesn’t, the Ultras will rule
mankind for another thousand years…
I’m Science Fiction author Kayelle Allen. I did a tour in the US Navy, where I climbed around airplanes fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home. I wrote my first novel at 18 but to this day, it’s hidden under my bed, where (trust me) it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in my galaxy-wide universe of stories. From childhood, I was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from my mother. From my father, I got a healthy respect for mechanical things. Small wonder I write Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr.
I’m a member of RomVets, a group of military and former military women who write romance. In 2014, I was awarded an honorary lifetime membership to the OutlantaCon Science Fiction Convention for support of the convention since its debut. I founded Marketing for Romance Writers (more about them below), and today it has over 7k members. I also lead a writer’s group in my community. Now that I’m retired, I stay busier than ever. I’ve been married so long I’m tenured.
I am a graphic artist as a hobby. Most of the art and banners on this site and in my social media were created by me, including my logo. I have a great design team that I also work with, commissioning special pieces. Check out their pages. Jamin (Volgraza) and Livius (Nano-Core) have huge amounts of talent. I am also privileged to work with a cosplayer who portrays my immortal king, Pietas. Take a moment to check out Nik Nitsvetov’s amazing work.
