I’ve been sitting on this news since January! Seriously, I’ve been dying! And then we got the cover and I had to sit on that! (Isn’t it pretty???)
When Veronica Scott and I decided to do Pets in Space, we had no idea what an amazing journey we’d begun. The partnership with HeroDogs (such a great organization!) and the amazing authors sharing their stories with us? Happy sigh. It was as big an adventure for us as it was for the characters in those wonderful stories.
Even before it launched last year, we were asking ourselves, “Do we want to do this again? Could there be a Pets in Space 2?”
And the answer is a resounding YES! We’re changing things up a bit. You’ll find some familiar names and some new authors in our line up, but the one thing you can be utterly sure about.
There will be romantic adventures in exotic locations.
There will be happy endings!
There will be pets!
Here’s our official announcement:

Here’s the blurb for my story, Time Trap:
Hiding in time is not as easy as you’d think…
Madison lives by the rules of a time travel rebel – never tell anyone your real name, not if you want to remain alive. On the track of a traitor, Madison and her parrot partner, Sir Rupert, time travel into a trap. Their only way out sends them back in time and into the arms of a man that ignites a fire inside her.
USAF Master Sergeant Briggs is in trouble – not the kind he’d like to be, but still in trouble. He is bored out of his mind! Ordered to recuperate on a quiet bay away from the Garradian outpost, he’s ready to mutiny and go back to his beloved engines. When his friends send him a gift from Area 51, he figures it will relieve his boredom for an hour or so – until he turns it on and he gets his second present of the day.
Madison would love to get to know Briggs better, but it is just too dangerous. Unfortunately, she might not have much choice. With a Time Service Interdiction Force on their heels, can the three craft a plan that will save a base full of geniuses and technology and discover a happy-ever-after forged through time?
