Spaceport: Hidden Phase NOW AVAILABLE

Posted in Uncategorized on October 9, 2008 by Lexxie Couper

Yep, it’s here. My favourite book to date. I fell in love with Sabain Talano. I hope you do too.

“Target acquired. Registered name, Sabian Talano.”
“Record?”
“None.”
“Military service?”
“None.”
“What have you got on him?”
“Registered name, Sabian Talano.”
“That’s it? No history of any kind?”
“No other information is available at this time.”

No one on Spaceport Adana knows who Sabian Talano really is. Everything about Talano, the head bouncer at the spaceport’s most popular bar, Haze, is shrouded in absolute mystery. All that’s known is this: Don’t piss him off if you want to stay in one piece. Don’t mess with Emylie, his equally mysterious companion, if you want to stay alive. No one knows who Sabian Talano is, and that’s exactly the way he wants it to stay.

So who is the woman in skin-tight red leather called Falynn Mavek who suddenly appears on the spaceport? Who is the massive man with her, she calls Forty-Two? What is she doing on ’Port Adana asking questions about the secretive head bouncer? And why do her eyes burn with hunger when she finally finds him?

Sabian Talano’s dark chilling past is about to catch up with him. And it couldn’t be more dangerous. Or erotic.

Haze, Spaceport Adana
IAC 211

“Who’s goin’t make me?”

Sabian Talano suppressed a sigh, his stare fixed firmly on the inebriated, slightly swaying Mendovian waving a broken bottle in his face. Every time a new ship docked, every time a new smuggler, illegal trader or bounty hunter landed on ’Port Adana, Sabian had to deal with at least one idiot too intoxicated to realize they were about to get their nose/muzzle/snout broken.

Tonight was no exception. The Mendovian with the broken bottle and twitching eye stalks had spent the better part of the evening — and a shitload of credits — pouring ale after ale down his throat, boasting to anyone who cared to listen about the haul of Ezelian Dream Spice he’d just snatched from under the IAC’s nose. Mauling the ropki girls, groping the bar staff and hurling insults at K’Mere’s latest rendition of the Zondorian classic “Whip Me” on karaoke.

As far as Sabian was concerned, the drunken imbecile should have been ejected from the bar after his second drink, but Hazel — being a big fan of pissing off the IAC — had given the smuggler a little more slack… (continue reading &aquo;)

Wow, Am I Behind!

There are so many things to tell you all I don’t even know where to begin….umm….

OK, let’s start with something that looks like fun (and will probably be cancelled after four episodes just cause I like it – grrrr). This is Nathan Fillion’s latest tv show. I LOVED Firefly, really enjoyed Drive, thought he was YUM-O in Desperate Housewives and have watched Dr Horrible’s Muscial Blog so many times I can now sing the songs in my sleep (am currently wearing a Captain Hammer t-shirt, in fact), so I’m pretty certain I will love this. What do you think?

What’s next? Oh, reviews… There are a lot of them. Ready?

Firstly, Cameron from The Romance Studio has reviewed Spaceport: Highest Bidder and gives it FOUR and a HALF HEARTS!! Woot! 🙂

“Highest Bidder is a nice addition in the highly entertaining Spaceport series from Changeling Press. The story was well crafted and while there was a lot going on in the plot, the author made it fit comfortably into the tighter novella-length work. The author’s writing style combined with great pacing to make this a read that’s over all too soon. The characterization was a real treat. Ms. Couper’s characters were all the reader could ever want and strong, emotional, and very likeable.The sensual scenes were well done and plentiful. Much attention was given to detail, making this story blend well with the others in the multi-author series but also building a credible world for the reader to lose herself in. All in all, a recommended read.”

Thank you, Cameron.

Then there’s Marcy’s FIVE STAR review over at Jerr. ”
Highest Bidder was my favorite story in the multi author Spaceport series. Ms. Couper developed a multitude of well-described characters, both good and evil. Dreylan was my favorite character. he worked very hard to help his lover, Naya, fulfill her responsibilities. She was a bit wimpy and I thought that she allowed him to take over too much of her responsibilities. They had extremely hot sexual encounters and I loved reading about them. I would have loved to have been there and watch them in person. This is the first story that I have read by Lexxie Couper and it was wonderful. I plan to read as many more of her books as possible. Enjoy Highest Bidder!”

My first Ellora’s Cave release, Stone’s Soul has received its first review. FIVE ANGELS from Rachel at Fallen Angel Reviews. “Stone’s Soul by Lexxie Couper doesn’t need a volcano to get you hot. Ms. Couper knows exactly how to get things heated up and this tale of an ancient warrior punished by a vengeful god brings fantasy and reality together with style. Jordynn is used to being a loner but when she starts seeing Kale the poor thing can’t help but think she just might have gone off the deep end. What she thinks are fantasies from an overworked mind are … (continue reading &aquo;)
