Medical Sci-fi with Romance for Christmas!

It’s nearly Christmas and I finally got around to wrapping presents for our kids and put them under the tree. I’m behind this year, but I’ve got lots of holiday cheer! And that’s what’s important. 

Are you done holiday shopping? Do you need some book recs for those on your list? *cough* or yourself *cough* This week we’re sharing our holiday book buys! 

Jeffe and KAK shared some excellent choices. I’ve read them, I can say that. So if you’re in the mood for some erotic romance, fantasy romance, or urban fantasy they have you covered! If you’re looking for some sci-fi with a romantic sub-plot, check out my audiobook—The Mars Strain!

We’ve colonized Mars, but we never should’ve come back.

When the first astronauts of the Mars Colony returned to Earth, they brought a mysterious, metal box they had found half-buried in the red dirt, called the Mars Cube. The scientists assigned to uncover its secrets tested it, scanned it, tried to blow it up, and everything in between. Then they accidentally opened it.  

Biosafety level-4 laboratories, BSL4, hold the most deadly viruses on the Earth, and Juliet handled them daily. Her research at the CDC landed her a position on the Mars Cube Investigative Team in the world’s only BSL-5 lab. The only drawback: Her ex was one of the astronauts that brought back the Cube. 

What was held inside the Cube shouldn’t have gotten out. It shouldn’t have ever been exposed to our planet because the Mars Strain is now loose and killing at a 100 percent mortality rate. Juliet is fighting for our very existence, Jake is working with the Mars Colonists to decipher the Cube’s holographic message for a clue, and someone wants to take over the Mars Program for themselves. They’re all watching the clock, and it's about to run out.

Happy wrapping and book indulging!
