SFR Bridge Presents: Mirror Shattered

Currently I am one week away from launching the second book in my sweet sci-fi romance series, Mirror Shattered! I've been busy getting everything together for my launch (party with us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/events/1386244284969504/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming) and thought I would treat to a special glimpse inside! Click the picture to go back to the homepage for others involved in this weeks SFR Brigade presents!



I am excited to present Mirror Shattered! It’s been two years since Maddie discovered the truth of her origins. No longer living the ‘comfortable life’ she has become a valued member of the Intergalactic Security Commission surpassing all expectations. Life isn’t easy as the ISC struggles under new leadership. Adding to the adjustment, the new leadership uncovers details that shake Mack and Maddie to their core.

Amid the chaos of what has become, Mack, Maddie and their team are sent off world on a mission that eventually fails, as they narrowly escape with their lives. En route to home their most trusted ally, the Isgurd, delivers more bad news. The team is left with the knowledge that the ISC never existed and the option to repair damage done by the time altering Synth.
Returning to 1965 is the easiest decision they face.
 
Here is the excerpt from this exciting installment! This is a sneak peak into a pivotal point in the book:
 
"Mack, please,” Maddie pleaded, tears rolling down her cheeks. “I don't want to fight you."
"That's too bad. I sure want to fight you." Mack ran toward Maddie.
 
Before Maddie could defend herself, Mack punched her hard in the face. Maddie gasped as the pain reverberated through her face and more tears swelled up in her eyes. Her hand instinctively touched her cheek, feeling the heat rise on her skin. Mack shoved Maddie away from the crowd, giving them more room.
 
"Look at you. You are weak. You are pathetic, Maddie. I can't believe we share the same DNA. You embarrass me," Mack bitterly said.
"Say that again," Maddie said in a low, dangerous voice.
"You. Embarrass. Me," Mack repeated.
 
Maddie finally had enough. She ran toward Mack, using her shoulder to knock her to the ground. She straddled Mack’s waist, her punch made contact with Mack's jaw as the other woman tried to toss Maddie off of her. Maddie’s stronger, robotic hand grabbed Mack’s arm and pinned it to her side. Another punch connected on Mack's face before Mack used her strong legs to flip Maddie onto her back, striking her as well. Maddie threw up her forearms to protect her face. The back of Maddie’s hand struck Mack in the face, causing her to whip her head around by the force of the blow then she elbowed Mack in the throat. The mad woman sputtered in shock and pain, grabbing at her throat. Maddie’s punch connected with Mack’s nose, potentially breaking it, and causing the woman to sputter and roll away from her.
 
"Had enough?" Maddie asked, breathing heavy.
"You wish," Mack said, getting back on her feet.
 
Mack grabbed Maddie by her shirt but before she could throw her punch, the sky above them started getting dark.
 
"What's that?" Maddie asked, looking up.
"You being wrong," Mack bitterly said, shoving Maddie away.

Wow, that's probably one level worse than normal sibling rivalry.
