Tethered by Pippa Jay
She can kill with a kiss. But can assassin Tyree also heal one man’s grief, and bring peace to a galaxy threatened by war?
For Tyree of the Su, being an assassin isn’t simply something she was trained for. It’s the sole reason for her existence. A genetically enhanced clone—one of many in Refuge—she’s about to learn her secluded lifestyle, and that of all her kind, is under threat by a race capable of neutralizing their special talents to leave them defenseless.
For Zander D’joren, being a diplomat has not only cost him his appearance, but also the love of his life. Scarred, grieving, he must nonetheless continue in his role as co-delegate to the fearsome Tier-vane or risk a conflict that could only end one way.
Now both of them need to keep each other alive and maintain a perilous deception long enough to renegotiate the treaty with the Tier-vane, or throw their people into a war that could wipe out Terrans and Inc-Su alike. But there’s more at stake than humanity, whether true or modified. Can the love growing between them save them both? Or merely hasten their destruction?
About the Author:
Name: Pippa Jay
Please tell us a bit about yourself: I’m a girl who writes scifi and the supernatural, a devoted Whovian and Scaper. Mum to three red haired monsters, and living happily in the historical town of Colchester.
What genres do you write and why?: Pretty much anything in the speculative fiction genre, with or without romance, but my first love is scifi.
Where do you find inspiration?: Everywhere! Honestly, it can be anything or everything. If I’m working to a particular theme or sub call, I’ll look through stock image sites or watch a DVD for something to spark a story off. Just recently I got the idea for another story from a friend simply misspelling zombie.
Best advice ever received?: Never give up—never surrender!
Coffee, tea or wine?: Coffee. Without question, and the stronger the better.
What is your favorite book(s) or author(s)?: I’m a big fan of Jaine Fenn.
Upcoming news and plans for the future?: Where do I start?! Okay, YA paranormal Restless In Peaceville releasing 20th August, a paranormal romance short releasing in October, and a superhero romance—When Dark Falls—releasing hopefully in November. I’ll also be re-releasing my scifi romance Keir before the end of the year, and I’m working on a futuristic UF short with an angel, and a YA post-apocalyptic zombie short.
