I am giving away two copies of my 1 Night Stand, Mako’s Bounty, from Decadent Publishing. In the mood for something sexy AND funny? Yes? Then read the blurb and answer this question to enter: What is the occupation of the heroine of Mako’s Bounty? Don’t forget to leave contact info. Have fun on the hop. You can find the other participants here. Good luck!

* * * * *

For nine long months, at the behest of the evil Ravenscorp, Mako Dolan has been hunting the space pirate they call The Saint. Now she’s finally lured her prey to a one night stand with a mysterious woman—herself. But Vin Sainte is not at all what she expected. Far from being a ruthless space pirate, his main occupation seems to be rescuing nuns, adopting orphans and praying like a champ.

For nine long months Vin Sainte has been fleeing the bounty hunter from one temporary refuge to the next. Now he’s got Mako exactly where he wants her: weak from gravity sickness and ripe for conversion. Problem is he didn’t expect a foul-mouthed, hard-as-nails bounty hunter to be such a devoted daughter. His head on a platter is Ravenscorp’s price for her mother’s freedom.

They have less than twenty four hours. One will win; one will lose. Mako might be a fearsome predator, but Vin has the Lord on his side. Who will win the bounty?

Sizzling Hot Book Reviews:  ”If you love science fiction stories filled with laughter and passion, then Mako’s Bounty is for you.”

Reading Reality:  ”…a decadently delicious treat of a science fiction romance.”

Goodreads: “FUN sci fi novelette with a funny, delightful heroine in Mako the Shark and a charming, unexpected hero in Vin “The Saint” Sainte.”

* * * * *

For another chance to win a copy of Mako’s Bounty, as well as another of my science fiction romances, Blue Galaxy, I am currently giving away a copy of each at Pippa Jay’s blog – and I’m also chatting about birth control of the future.  Feel free to stop on by.

  2. yganoe says:

    The blurb is wonderful and leaves we wanting to know more!

  3. Jessica Subject says:

    Thanks for participating in the hop, Diane!

    I can’t say enough good things about Mako’s Bounty. I absolutely loved it! 🙂

  4. Lila Shaw says:

    Hi, Diane! Good luck with the hop! Love Mako’s Bounty too. Will there be a sequel?

  5. JLH says:

    I would love to read Mako’s Bounty. A female bounty hunter is unusual (usually it’s the men), but I love a strong woman.

  6. Drea Becraft says:

    This sounds like a very interesting book! I will have to add it to my TBB list!


  7. Arlene says:

    Yep, you hooked me as well with a female bounty hunter. I so love the combo of sci-fi and romance.

  8. Bounty Hunter – ah yes, apart from that mad dog guy, bounty hunter always makes me think of a bar of chocolate. Do you have Bounties in the US? They’re chocolate covered bars of sweet compressed coconut. — slurp – have to go and find chocolate now. Damn you!!!

    • Diane Dooley says:

      We have a similar choccy bar to in the US, but not as good as a decadent Bounty. Yum. Come to think of, one could increase the decadence of Mako’s Bounty by eating a Bounty bar at the same time as reading it. Double yum!

  9. I love sci fi romance. Sounds like Mako is a bounty hunter. Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. Melissa Keir says:

    Thanks for the chance to win! I loved Mako’s Bounty! Such a wonderful story!

  13. Tracy Riva says:

    Mako is a bounty hunter, although it sounds like she has been forced into it, or at least into this particular case. It will be interesting, to say the least, to see how the two of them work out their little predicament.


  14. Mako’s Bounty has been one book I’ve longed to read since I saw it up on the Decadent site. 🙂 I better get a move on and pick it up.


  15. Anne says:

    I ddn’t know the series also offered sci-fi books.

  16. buffykennedy says:

    A story about a female bounty hunter sounds so interesting. Yeah, another book for my list!


  25. Ashlynn monroe says:

    Just saying hi and the book looks great!

  26. Julianne says:

    This book sounds great! Your comment about birth control in the future reminded me a of a movie, which I can’t remember the name but it was in the future. And when they wanted to have sex, each person got into a rocket looking thing and then it would start to shake and the lights would blink off and on and you could hear moaning and then it was over in seconds. It was a funny movie too. But that would be one way to prevent pregnancy, the two people never touch each other.
