Guest Blog: TAYRYM (Galactic Defenders #4) by Jessica E. Subject

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much to Allie for having me back to talk about my new release!

TAYRYM is the story of a young man named Tayrym, as he makes the most important decisions of his life while trying to get them all to work together. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be possible for him through most of the storyline.

In the Galactic Defenders series, we first meet Tayrym in BRYCE. He is a young teen then, and becomes part of a very important ceremony on his home planet, Hemera. He is mentioned again in JAGER when Gwenodyn, his best friend, is talking to her sister. In both instances, Gwenodyn calls him Scrym. That is her nickname for him, and it is explained in TAYRYM.

In TAYRYM, he is the main character, and he must face his sexuality and how it is perceived by others. He must also decide which dreams of the future are worth pursuing, and which ones are worth giving up. He deals with surprising joy as well as some heartbreaking moments before he is able to find his happily ever after. I hope you enjoy the next story in my Galactic Defenders series!

Tayrym has dreamed of becoming a Galactic Defender since meeting the infamous Bryce when he was just a 

boy. Finally an adult and awaiting the day cycle he is set to leave for training, Tayrym learns his long-time crush shares his affections. Now, he’s unsure whether he wants to leave, which dream matters more.

With the threat of being sent away for his sexuality haunting him, Guri keeps his feelings for his former classmate to himself. Even with a new progressive ruler on Hemera, he still hides his attraction to the young man. But when he catches the other shadowing him, Guri decides to take a chance. The only problem is, the man of his desire is leaving the planet soon. Possibly forever.

With obstacle after obstacle in their path, will Tayrym and Guri ever have a chance to be happy together? Or are they destined to fulfill their dreams light years apart?

Excerpt from Tayrym:

Gwenodyn sat on the very front bench and leaned forward, examining all the players. “So, let me figure out which one you have the hots for.”

She might as well have thrown him onto the field with that statement. Tayrym wanted to run and hide. Thank goodness most of the players were at the other end.

She nudged him. “I can eliminate one already. The guy who’s the net minder at this end is one of our teachers. If it were him, you’d find ways to stay after school instead of coming here.”

True. He didn’t dislike the teachers. They were only a few years older. But, they didn’t leave him with ylafats in his stomach the way his crush did.

“And I doubt you’d go for the two shorter guys on the other team. They’re cute.” She bit her bottom lip. “Really cute. But, not your type.”

How did she know his type when he’d just told her he was attracted to guys? Though she was correct, so far.

“That leaves the best players on each team, the one with the strong cheekbones who looks like he’s dancing across the field or the younger guy on this side who is determined to win even down a player. He used to be in our class, sat behind you. I think it’s—”

The ball rocketed toward them from center field. Gwenodyn wasted no time moving in front of him to catch the ball.

“Fornax Raw! What was that for?” Sol, the net minder-teacher, called to the other player on his team.

Guri shrugged in response, his gaze on Tayrym. Or maybe Gwenodyn. Most likely her. Tayrym didn’t stand a chance.

The one Gwenodyn had said danced across the field ran over to them to collect the ball and bowed. “Sorry about that, Princess.” Once he threw the ball back onto the field, play resumed.

“Well, I wasn’t sure before, but now I’m positive you like the guy who kicked the ball right at your head. Though, after that, I’m not sure why.” She pinched his cheek. “He could have ruined your beautiful face.”

As a shifter, Massak takes the form of both man and bear, so he should be her worst nightmare. One whiff of her scent, though, and he knows they’re meant to be together. Winter is the mating season on the planet of Jensen—a time when nature strips everything bare and primal instincts rise to the surface.

Writing Update

Hi, everybody. 2018 has been a busy year so far, and I thought I’d take a moment to share some of what I’ve been working on. As many of you know, Loose Id—a publisher I’ve been with for seven years—closed its doors this spring. I’m happy to announce that I’ve repositioned all my Loose Id books, so you can now get them through iTunes, Kobo, Amazon, B&N, etc. If you enjoyed the high quality of Loose Id publications, you should check out my post Loose Id Books: Where Are They Now?, which includes titles by multiple authors in several subgenres of spicy romance.

This year, I was thrilled to see all six of my Vampire Territory novels in print in trade paperback, and the e-books are now available in box sets as well. My polyamorous romance Husbandry got a sexy new cover and was re-edited.

Just this week, I overhauled my website to make it more mobile-friendly. The Home page and Books & Trailers page should now expand and contract according to screen size, and browsing can be done on touchscreens by simply hitting the book cover. All of the books on the Home page are now organized by series, too.

Most exciting of all, I’m working on the final formatting of Bare Season, a brand new release in my bestselling Children of Nanook series. The cover art is finished and looks beautiful. I anticipate Preorder links becoming available later this month. Stay tuned!

Vampires Get Together

Vampire Territory Box Set Volume 1: Books 1-3

Looking for a gritty paranormal romance with sex, sword fights, and lots of fang action? Read the first three books of Allie Ritch’s Vampire Territory series in one box set:

DRINKING PARTNERS: Between the Human Rebellion trying to kill him with poisonous suicide donors and snobby born vampires bucking his authority, master vampire Lucas Thane has his hands full. He wants Alexandra Gage, the Southern master, as his partner, but he also wants her territory. Alex has no intention of letting Lucas take over. Turned into a vampire against her will, she has had enough control taken from her. She’ll never let Lucas usurp her right to rule, but will she let him steal her heart?

JUST MY TYPE: There’s trouble in vampire territory, and Melody is right in the middle of it. A new arrival from Eastern Europe named Taspar Tong is out to take over her masters’ domains using the army he has at his command. In the meantime, there are two dangerous men in her life: Eryx, the dark-haired warrior who is always watching her, and Wess Gage, a soldier for the Human Rebellion. She has to decide which man is her type—the one who makes her feel human again or the vampire who makes her blood boil.

AFTER HOURS: Jaide has made a living as a soldier since she was turned into a vampire over a century ago. She’s confident in herself as a fighter but less sure of herself when it comes to a certain muscular, blue-eyed guard. Brasen sees the woman behind the warrior and is determined to make Jaide his own. He just has to prove to Jaide that they’re as good together out in the field as they are in bed.

Vampire Territory Box Set Volume 2: Books 4-6

Invading bloodsuckers and a deadly Human Rebellion are giving the local vampires plenty of action. In this box set, read the final three paranormal romance books in Allie Ritch’s Vampire Territory Series.

SUCKER PUNCH: Wess Gage started the CRU, or Cooperative Response Unit, as a way to bring humans and vampires together to hunt evil bloodsuckers like Taspar Tong. A vampiress and scientist, Natalia joins Wess and his team to develop new weaponry to protect the humans. What Wess doesn’t know is that she’s on the hunt for a traitor. Someone is leaking information to both Taspar and the Human Rebellion. Natalia risks her heart and draws Wess deeper into the vampire world. She needs to keep him safe until the traitor is finally revealed.

ANOTHER ROUND: Can revenge heal betrayal? Or will an unlikely romance give Zander, Maribeth, and Graham the strength they need to take on an adversary who knows their secrets?

LAST CALL: Victor Rafe is built for war, not love. All he can think about is revenge against Taspar Tong, who murdered his human family long ago. Cierra is willing to fight for his love, but will the stubborn vampire do the same for her? Or will Victor’s archenemy destroy them all?

Kalya has loved Rasik since they were children, and that love has followed them into adulthood.

Coveted and resented for centuries, her people stick to themselves and keep their abilities a secret. But when Kalya’s young cousin and Rasik’s brother run away together, she and Rasik are thrown together as they chase after them.
