- A Crime Wave in a Corset by Stacy Gail
The letter G is being represented by Stacy Gail, whose short story I read during my Short Story Reading Week - A Crime Wave in a Corset. I received a copy through NetGalley.
While I couldn’t find out that much about Stacy, she does run a blog and released a book called Zero Factor, which has quite the cover.
"Armed and dangerous..."
A "Cybershock" Story Born a psionic-a rare human prized by the government for her gifts-agridome worker Via Brede lives by two simple rules: slip into stealth mode whenever the cybernetic-enhanced militia is near. And never remove the gloves that block her psychic ability. During a routine delivery, a tear in her glove connects her with what should be her worst nightmare. A meched-out soldier with bulging muscles and a scarred face that makes her heart pound like a pneumatic drill. She also envisions his death in an attack that happens..."now." Locke's typically ho-hum mission goes sideways when the stunning, green-eyed bubble farmer plants a sensual kiss that sets fire to every one of his remaining man-nerves. He also sees her vision. His own commander is about to kill him. He needs Via to find out why. First step is to get her to Old Las Vegas without succumbing to a raw, sexual need that burns in him like fever. Getting there will be a snap. Getting out alive-and winning her trust-might be a little tougher. Warning: This title contains mild violence, blow-your-mind Psionic sex, buns of steel (literally) and the usual hanky-panky at a bordello.
