Alien, Mine by Sandra Harris Blurb Blitz Tour

Alien, Mine by Sandra Harris





Torn from modern day Earth and stranded on the far side of the Galaxy, Sandrea Fairbairn must use every particle of courage she possesses to adjust to her new life and live for tomorrow.

Eugen Mhartak, a general in the Tri-Race Alliance Army, refuses to bow to the merciless Bluthen. Haunted by the loss of far too many innocent lives he has vowed to drive the ruthless invaders from Alliance space.

The strength and valor of Eugen Mhartak attracts Sandrea as no man ever has, but she struggles to read the enigmatic general’s heart. Determined to help him triumph over the Bluthen she uncovers a diabolical plot against the Alliance.

Drawn by the courage and exotic beauty of Sandrea, Mhartak battles to overcome the barriers of cross-cultural differences that separate them and claim her ardent interest. He must conquer his deepest fears to be the man she needs. When his principles are betrayed by his own government and he is faced with the impossible prospect of taking Sandrea’s life in order to save his home planet, Mhartak desperately searches for a way to keep safe both his world and the magnificent woman who has stolen his heart.



“They’ve penetrated that far?” Graegen seemed amazed.

“So it would seem,” Mhartak replied with resigned disgust.

Their distress almost compelled her to offer comfort. She lifted a hand toward them and they turned to her. The similar, compassionate expressions in their eyes levelled a kick to her gut.


“The distance to your home is considerable,” Mhartak said.

“You can’t get me back?”

“Regrettably, no.”

Anguish pierced her heart while rage threatened to screech her rejection of fate. Her body folded and sagged to the bed, swamped by a violent flood of loss and misery.

“You will, of course, be welcome with us.” Mhartak’s soft words drifted like fragile petals into the dreadful turmoil of her emotions.

The lifeline he offered seemed all too insignificant against the tide of bitter despair burning her soul. Her throat clogged with churning emotion, she managed an abrupt nod.

“Is there anything we can do for you?” he offered.

She closed her eyes, unable to bear the pity hovering on their faces, unwilling to break down before them.

“No.” She drew her legs up and buried her face in her knees. 

“Would you like the medical officer to attend you?” Graegen asked.

“No, thank you,” she muttered into her legs.

“We will leave you then,” Mhartak said.

The door closed behind them and tears of angry, frightened desolation ripped silently from her heart. She cried for her family. There would be no closure for them, no end to their mourning.

No chance to say good-bye.

She cried for herself and cried for every stolen tomorrow, lost now to her forever.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Born in the far north of Australia, yearly cyclones, floods and being cut off from civilization for weeks at a time were the norm. An outrageous imagination helped occupy Sandra’s mind.

An abiding interest in astronomy and a deep-seated need to always see the good guys win naturally influences her writing. Not satisfied with the amount of romance in science fiction novels she set out to redress the balance.

She currently lives in sunny South East Queensland, Australia, with her husband and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who doesn’t seem to realize she comes from royalty and should act in a more appropriate manner.

My Review:  September 2013    ~ Review Copies ~

Alien, MineAlien, Mine by Sandra Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First, I would like to thank the author Sandra Harris for giving me this book for an honest review. I love this novel, Sandrea is a strong female, she survives being kidnapped and tortured by the Bluthen, and stranded far from home in an alien culture. Eugen Mhartak is a scary alien but he is a great hero. I loved these characters and the world the author built. I hope to see more books written by Sandra, keep up the good work.
