A hundred years from now, Earth has trading partners with alien beings, mostly humanoid. However, going into space brought forth an unknown enemy who attacks Earth at will.

The Zoastra is part of the Earthseekers, an organization originally designed to go into space. Its new mission is to find Earth’s enemies.

Ariel is stuck on a Victorian planet and steals Grace’s body and life to get off the planet. Grace must get her body back before Ariel bonds with Grace’s husband, Peter. Then there is Cross, the man on a mission to find those who killed his family. Ariel is attracted to Cross, but she’s stolen someone’s life.


    Listening to the school teacher drone on about the sex ritual rubbed her skin raw. No one experienced the pure fantasy Rochelle claimed mating did for the soul. She reviewed her plan in her head to ensure her escape wasn’t thwarted. The back of the spine was the perfect spot for the body switch, though less than one out of every three billion Sheratons had this power, if that many. She learned that in a book she’d found a few months earlier that explained how body switching occurred. If it was to be believed, Ariel’s fingers could return her life back. Just her luck the girl massaging her back had that unique power discussed in the occult history of the planet. It took her years to find the answer on how to reverse this. Ariel’s host body had the means.

    To keep her blood level low, Ariel let her eyes fade into her fantasy world. Lenchena in her stolen body, in engineering, cowering in a corner when Ariel strolled in to confront her, then using her fingers to steal her life back. Snapping back from her fantasy, she took notes. Everything had a purpose. Move forward with her plan, find the female who did this, and set everything straight. Staying in tip-top shape meant constant movement, but when the time came, she needed to be like the engines she once loved to work on. Engines had purpose and drive and precision. A genuine smile grew on her face, while she tasted home. Her mouth watered for victory. Precise movement in timed order would bring her life back. Being back on the Thrycer remained her dream, and she’d see that world again, through her own eyes.

    Fingers crossed, she turned her attention back to the teacher. Hopefully, whoever’s body she stole would understand she needed to fix this upset in the universe.

Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, after passing many tests proving how easy Math came to her. Then hating her life at the age of twenty four, she decided to go to law school. Four years later, after passing the bar and practicing very little, she realized that she hates the practice of law. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk. After realizing she needed change, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is rewarding, but writing is a passion.

During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.

When she woke up to what she wanted, the dream of writing became so obvious. She dreams of writing professionally, where her barista can make her coffee and a walk on the beach, can motivate her tales. Contemporary romances are just fun to write. She’s always thinking whose getting hurt and whose story is next on the list to fall in love. Victoria’s love of writing has kept her centered and focused through her many phases, and she’s motivated to write many stories.

Member of Florida Romance Writers, Contemporary Romance, Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal chapter of RWA, and in Savvy Authors.
