Excerpt: Chapter 1
"When a wounded runner stumbles into her workshop, sculptor Talena Spenser’s comfortable, quiet life is shattered. Aiding the escaped slave risks losing more than just her freedom. She is in phase, when Cy'ren females are overwhelmed by the drive to mate.
Mordacki Loren, shadow sword of House Nightfall, knows the pain of losing a mate. He never intended to take another. But Talena, raised by humans with little knowledge of Cy'ren ways, leaves him no choice. As the mating lust consumes them, Dack promises to honor her wishes - even if that means letting her go.
Scarred and hardened by a munitions accident that sent her Alliance career up in flames, Carmen Hawke joined the Cy'ren resistance as captain of the flagship Talon. When old flame Dack returns from a mission with Carmen's childhood friend and first love, Talena, in tow, the temptation to allow someone - or two someones - close to her again cracks her emotional armor.
Pursued by an unknown enemy, the trio works together to discover the secrets of Talena's past, and to uncover a threat that could destroy the fragile peace of the Cy'ren homeworld."
I haven't yet read any ménages with male/female/female relationship going on, but it worked for me in Nightfall. Talena and Carmen had been in love for years even though they hadn't met in several years, Dack was a new acquaintance that had had dalliances with Carmen before and was more than willing to accept Carmen to his and Talina's mating. The relationship with Dack and Talina was just lust in the beginning which was softened by the love and friendship between her and Carmen. In all not a bad trio!
What stood out for me the most about the characters in Nightfall was the male Cy'ren, they had the vengeance and their good looks going for them - of the whole book they were what intrigued me the most, Jace included though he was quite the bad boy of all alien bad boys. ;)

The Sexy Side of Sci-fi
by Robyn Bachar
There’s always been a sexy side of sci-fi. Many pulp covers featured a scantily clad woman wearing a space helmet and little else, usually while being menaced by an alien or a robot. In classic Star Trek Captain Kirk always got the girl in one episode and moved on to another in the next, a tradition carried on in Next Gen by Commander Riker. But the stories that I love have more than just the relationship of the week. What would the original Star Wars trilogy be without the romance between Han Solo and Princess Leia? Or Firefly without the sexual tension between Mal and Inara?
As a romance writer, the love story is always important to me. I want my hero to save the world and get the girl—or girls, as the case may be in Nightfall. Though I’m pretty sure Captain Hawke would have words with me for referring to her as a girl, because as the tough captain of the Talon she’s not the girly type. Being with Dack and Talena allows her to indulge her softer, squishy side, and that was an essential part of the story for me while writing Nightfall.
I wanted to tell a story with epic space battles and political intrigue, but also with a passionate romance. Together, Dack, Talena and Carmen complete each other, and as their relationship develops so does the fate of the Cy’ren home world. Writing red hot ménage love scenes was a fun added bonus, and I hope my readers enjoy the ride.
