As part of the hop, I'm also offering a digital format of my scifi romance short story if you leave me a comment and tell me the most romantic gift you've ever been given (and it needn't have been on Valentine's Day). 

Welcome to Venus Ascendant, a Public Grade space station in the Andromedan Sector. With our open-to-all policy, any being in the universe can find their perfect R & R, romantic getaway or dangerous liaison at our purpose built resort. The on-board empathic AI Ganesa ensures that anyone coming to Venus Ascendant will find their heart’s desire, with suites that transform from luxurious boudoirs to sunset-lit beaches to dark BDSM dungeons. So come to Venus Ascendant and find exactly what you’re looking for!”
It was meant to be a romantic getaway for Marie and the love of her life Jaisen; a chance for him to get to know her better after months of her denying him more than a few stolen kisses. Instead, Marie finds herself dumped and alone on Venus Ascendant with no credit for a transmat and the next starship home not due for another hour.
But the all-seeing AI isn’t going to leave anyone aboard the space station with their dreams unfulfilled. Marie's boyfriend might not have made it to the station, but there are others willing and able to take on the role - even if they aren’t entirely human.
WARNING - Not suitable for under 18’s due to adult content.

  1. Thanks for joining the hop, Pippa! Great post!

  2. Hi, Pippa!

    Oooh, I haven't read good sci fi in a while.

    The most romantic gift that comes to mind at the moment is any time Hubby enables my book addiction, most recently a B&N gift card for our anniversary. :-)

    It's lovely "hopping" with you! Since I'm also hosting a stop, you don't have to put me in for the drawing.


  3. I read this story a while ago and LOVED it! :)

  4. My husband isn't very romantic, so he doesn't do gifts, but he does bring home flowers for no reason.
    Thanks for the fun blog hop.

  5. Hi JA and Cecilia. Thanks for stopping by, going to swing round all the posts tomorrow. Wow, today has been a doozy!
    Hi Jean, aww spontaneous gifts of flowers are sweet. :)

  6. My husband wrote a poem one year. It was really good. The next best thing is he printed the cover of my first book and had it framed.

  7. Awww, those are both very sweet! Thanks for stopping by Morgan.

  8. A bookcase - very thoughtful. Shows he knows me well.

  10. The most romantic gift I've ever been given is my husband. Cheesey, yes, but true. He doesn't just do one thing at certain times of the year, he does lots of little things throughout the year.

  11. Hi! Happy Valentines! Thank you for the amazing giveaway! Ive never been giving a romantic gift. I dont really celebrate the holiday. Thanks!

  12. Aww, thanks for all the great answers!
