Giveaway and Blog Tour Stop for Haven 6 - by Aubrie Dionne

I'm thrilled to welcome Aubrie Dionne to my blog today.  Aubrie is no stranger to my blog, and it's always a pleasure to have her as a guest, and I genuinely love her books.

Aubrie says she grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.

Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A concert flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, science  fiction author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.

I read 'The Last Unicorn' years ago, and thought it was really moving, a beautiful story - and I thought the film did a really good job of putting the story across too. I also share her enjoyment of Star Trek. I could talk about films with Aubrie all day, but let's get down to the nitty gritty and introduce her latest book - soon to be released - 'Haven 6'.

A product of an illegal pairing, Eridani is the only woman without a lifemate aboard the colonization ship, the Heritage, and she is determined her less than perfect DNA will not get in the way of finding love. As the ship nears it's final destination of Haven 6 after five hundred years of travel, images of the surface show evidence of intelligent life on a planet that's supposed to be uninhabited. Commander Grier assigns Eri to the exploratory team to spy on the alien society and return with information on how to defeat them.
When Eri's team lands, tribes of humans attack and Eri is saved by Striver, the descendant of a colonist and a pirate from Old Earth's colonization efforts in other parts of the galaxy. Striver helps Eri rescue her team and they are drawn to each other despite their different allegiances. While Striver battles with trusting Eri, Eri must decide whether to warn him and his people about the commander's intentions, or follow orders and complete her mission.
