Spotlight & Giveaway: No Quarter (Bounty Book #1) by Christine d’Abo

NQ

pink-divider-1_thumb2_thumb1_thumb_t

Hello, my name is Christine d’Abo! Thank you so much for having me here on the blog today. I have been a big fan of all things science fiction since I was six. I started by watching reruns of the original Star Trek, moved on to watching (and re watching) Star Wars, and finally I was introduced to the world of Doctor Who.

My world exploded, expanded and I loved it all. The idea of space operas, and how they focus on the people and their developments, rather than the science was what appealed even at that young an age. The adventure, the romance, good versus evil, showed me that there could be more to live that what existed in my tiny world.

As I got older and my life experiences grew, I never lost that love of space opera. One thing that I wanted to do was to put my own mark on it, to show a different side to the worlds that had been portrayed. The Bounty series was my way of doing that. Not everyone in the universe is straight, and it’s important to show diversity out amongst the stars as well as here on Earth.

The men and women you’ll meet – both space pirates and bounty hunters alike – are full of life, love and are most definitely up to no good. I hope you enjoy reading their tales as much as I loved writing them.

Synopsis

When bounty hunter Gar Stitt is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he’s convinced it’s a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, after all, and Captain Faolan Wolf isn’t hard to find. He’s the most notorious pirate in the galaxy, and when he shows up planetside to take his pleasures, he’s far from subtle.

Faolan never expected a hot but tightly wound hunter to walk into his private party and try to apprehend him single-handedly. And when an unexpected betrayal forces them to work together, Faolan’s even more surprised to find himself drawn to Gar personally—especially since neither of them do personal.

Gar had intended to put Faolan in prison. Instead he finds his solitary existence shaken by his desire for the pirate. And when the bounty hunter becomes the hunted, he must put his faith in Faolan and his pirate crew, or run the risk of ending up dead.

Publisher's note: This title is an edited second edition, previously published in 2010

  7. I'm so glad that Chtistine mentioned that "not everyone in the universe is straight", because it's very true. A pet peeve of mine in the M/M genre that I've just begun reading is that everyone in their universe is gay. That is just as unrealistic as everyone being straight. I read M/M to get the occasional gay love story but get thrown out of the story because EVERYONE is gay. Hopefully the concept of having a touch of realism within fiction will catch on. It truly baffles me that in "gay" fiction EVERYONE has to be gay, and in "straight" fiction EVERYONE has to be straight. So I end up writing my own stories which include straight, gay, bi, human, vampire, demon, shapeshifter- all in the same universe. The horror of it all! I better publish soon or my completely shocking mix of sexuality in my characters will become old news, as hopefully the current genre classifications will soon be. Time for art to better imitate life, IMO.

  16. I love space opera, as well! Exploring how people have changed, and how they haven't, is just fascinating.
