A Catalyst exclusive excerpt and release day giveaway from Dani Worth

Posted in Uncategorized / 7 Comments

Today I am excited to welcome Dani Worth to the blog with an exclusive exceprt of her new release Catalyst.

This is the third book in the Kithran Regenesis series and I swear this series just keeps getting better and better. Dani has also very kindly offered a chance for one lucky commenter to win all 3 e-books in the Kithran Regesis series. Enjoy!

A woman seeking answers, a younger man seeking love, and an older man seeking revenge must work together to achieve all of their goals…

The Kithran Regenesis, Book 3

Vala Gorun’s family was off Kithra when the explosions happened and although she’s back on her home planet helping with the rebuild, something she saw all those years ago still haunts her. So she hires a Tracker to find the human man she’d once loved—one she thinks betrayed her in the worst possible way.

In order to stop the search into his past, Jackson Canfield sends space pirates to kidnap the Tracker. He can’t afford to be found. Not now, when his revenge is almost complete. Unfortunately, instead of the Tracker, the pirates grab Vala and a young Gwinarian man instead.

Trapped on a pirate vessel with Bastian Sithbrun, a ridiculously attractive but younger man, Vala fights her attraction. But something about the twenty-year-old gets to her… But when the pirates leave them the unwilling guests of the very man she’d driven crazy with her teen crush all those years ago, Vala learns Jacks has been in hiding, working to right a horrible wrong.

Now the three of them must work together to reveal the truth behind Kithra’s destruction—if they can control the explosive passion that erupts between them long enough to complete their task.

Product Warnings

A tattooed, broken-hearted heroine discovers M/M/F love is crazy hot when not fighting giant alien lizards or worrying about age differences. And when the senses are narrowed to touch alone behind a massive waterfall? It’s scorching!

“I put him to work.” Lux grinned and reached up to secure her long black hair into a high tail. “Vala, the kid’s got it bad.”

“Got what bad?” Jarana eyed Bastian as he hefted a crate and carried it on the ship. Admiration lifted one eyebrow as her gaze slid down to his butt. “Absolute and utter hotness? Wonder if Maska would like him.”

“Don’t be greedy,” I snapped without thought then cringed when Lux’s eyes went wide and her grin took on a calculated gleam. Great, I did not need Lux Moyans getting into my personal business.

“Greedy?” Jarana’s mouth tightened. “You spent too much time on Earths.” She looked back at Bastian as he strode to the crates. “He’s got a sort of feminine grace to him, don’t you think? Like a dancer or something.”

“There’s not a feminine thing about him,” I muttered, wishing she would shut up.

She grinned. “I do think my Maska would like this one.”

She was messing with me. I could always tell when a Gwinarian love match was complete and she had that in spades with Maska and Erik. Besides, I didn’t think Erik would ever allow another into their tight circle. Lux and Jarana’s chuckles followed me as I had to force myself to walk, not stomp, to where Bastian now stood still, those dark eyes locked on me as always—like he couldn’t help himself. 

He ran his gaze over my tattooed arms before drawing them back up my body to my face. Heat turned those pretty eyes molten.

Squirm-inducing memories filled me of myself as a teenager. Had I looked this desperate following Jacks around?

When I stopped in front of him, I wished—not for the first time—that I’d inherited my mother’s long legs. I was short for a Gwinarian at five foot five, and Bastian had over a foot on me. I opened my mouth then shut it. Asking him why he was here or what he wanted was pointless. It was damned obvious. I just shook my head. “What am I going to do with you?”

“I have a few suggestions.”

It was the first time I’d heard his voice, and its smooth warmth flowed into my pores like steam from a saunobath.

Up close, his eyes were spectacular. Gwinarian eye shades came in ambers and browns and he had both—dark brown with a thin layer of amber that made his eyes look iridescent. He’d caught his long hair in a tail at the nape of his neck, but strands had wiggled free and framed his face. They looked silky soft, and before I could stop myself, I reached up to rub one between my thumb and finger. It was as satiny as it looked. I closed my eyes. “You are so young.”

“So?”

Again, I opened my mouth, planning to explain that I wasn’t looking for a relationship, but before I could speak, Lux let out a cry. I spun around to find her flat on the deck, a stranger standing over her with a tranque gun in his hand. He now had it pointed at Jarana who held her hands up in the universal sign for surrender. She watched him closely, eyes narrowed, and I knew she waited for the right moment to attack.

So I gave it to her. I screamed.
