Good Evening,

Have I got a treat for you! I've a second post at TRS today and this one is an extended excerpt from one of my older stories, Party Girl from the Soul Debt multi-author series. This tale is very fitting for this pre-Halloween week as it involves demons of all shapes and sizes and one human woman who will do anything to have what she wants...even make a deal to sell her soul...

New Scifi Release on Sale Today!

The Theme of Malathix Soul (box set): Scifi/futuristic Erotic Romance. Imagine Earth has established interactions with alien life. There is, of course, protocol to follow. A merchant planet, Malathix, wants to open relations with Earth and sends a ship to make this happen. When the ship enters our atmosphere, however, something goes awry, and the result is that the ship is destroyed and the Malathix are stranded. This is only a minor issue, though. The bigger problem is that their souls were stripped during the descent which results in their inner defense mechanisms--literal metal and scary sharp-everything beasts--being left unchecked. The only way to find balance is to locate the women to whom their souls became attached, and to convince each one that they are destined to be mates. 

In Soulless, Laya, a waitress in New Texas, doesn't understand why Space Lord Theradon is chasing her. Is it to kill her, or to love her?

In Broken, Thorn's determination to rescue his stranded brother is offset by Yvette, the female whose very existence could mean the salvation of their planet.

In Jagged, Camden lives with the guilt that he's responsible for their being stranded, but he refuses to open up to his mate, Deidre, who will give him all the answers he needs if he'd not only trust her, but his beast as well. 

I'm super excited that this box set: Malathix Soul, is available everywhere fine ebooks are sold as of today. You can pick up a copy from Amazon, All Romance eBooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Coffee Time Romances! So many choices; it's wonderful!

Okay, so this box set comprises of not exactly "new" stories, but they are newly smooshed together at a price that way beats what you would've paid for the stories individually (and the individual stories are no longer for sale). Besides, reading a series all at once takes you on the emotional ride the writer intended in the first place...without having to wait months inbetween. 

Buy Links for your quick and easy pleasure ('cause I'm awesome like that)  ;)

And have a fantastic, wonderful day!

Inspiring Music

A few years ago, when I wrote the stories that make up the Malathix Soul Box Set, I didn't simply sit down and pump out the tales. No, the entire beginning of this series had been working in my brain for quite some time as it was. And it all began with a song. 

As I had listened to this particular song, a story had swirled and formed until I had no choice but to write it down. This became Soulless. When I then turned to write Broken and Jagged, the same song wouldn't fit, but it led me to look at other songs that called to me, that seemed to embody the essence of what my characters were going through or needing. 

Enjoy the links below that will take you to each of the songs that led to the Malathix Soul Box Set. Warning, like the stories, the music is hard and a little dark, but it's spot on. ;)

(Please note that the links for the songs are to YouTube. Personally, I enjoy the listening more than the "seeing." Enjoy either way!)

Soulless was inspired by 
"Space Lord" by Monster Magnet.  

Broken was inspired by 
"Erase My Scars" by Evans Blue  

Jagged was inspired by 
"Far From Home" by Five Finger Death Punch 

Oh, and if you want to see how these stories turned out, 
drop by Changeling and pick up the Box Set
Reading these stories back-to-back is an exhilarating experience! 

Have a fantastic Hump Day!

Scintillating Sunday blog hop (with Aliens)


Please enjoy your Sunday with 8 paragraphs from my latest release, Malathix Soul (a box set). The following excerpt is taken from book 2 in the set, Broken. It's available exclusively (for now) from Changeling Press. 

“Hi,” she started.


“Are you okay?” It sounded stupid to her ears, but she couldn’t think of a single sensible thing to say. She prayed he didn’t ask why she was on his lap. She’d bet her life’s savings that telling him pictures in her head told her to do this wouldn’t go over well.

While she’d been lost in his tattoo -- and even now her hands continued to trace the patterns -- he’d shifted out of his beast form. His hands, the claws having receded, grazed her hips, wrapped around her ass and pulled her harder against his body. “I think I’ll be all right.”

She pushed her hips back away from him. What was going on? She didn’t want sex. Did she? She didn’t even know this male. Wait. What were they doing here? She had to take him somewhere, didn’t she? There was something they had to do.

His firm grip massaged her hips.

That’s right. She wanted to… she wanted to…

Pictures of how he’d feel deep inside her as she sat on him flooded her mind. Yes, that was it. I want to have sex with him. I need to have him deep inside me.

If you want more, you can pick up your own copy today from Changeling Press. 
Thank you for visiting today! Now, don't forget to share the love and hop on over to the next blog below!

Are you missing Comic Con this weekend?

Don't fret, so am I! If you love a good comic book convention (or comics in general), ease your sadness by visiting my convention. Well, Changeling Press's convention: Earth Con.

Earth Con, this time hosted by Fever Hitch Comics, boasts not only an outlet for comic book fans from Earth, but there's also a secret side that hosts alien fans as well. 

When Felicia is chosen by her company to dress up as an upcoming comic book alien, she cannot even begin to imagine what this will open to her: fun, excitement, eroticism, and danger! Neither could she believe how two aliens step in to take care of her--in ways that'll leave her begging for more. 

So indulge in your comic book/alien/menage fantasies, and welcome to Fever Hitch's Earth Con...

- An Earth Con story -

Genre/Themes: Sci-fi Erotic Romance, novella

She'll be their perfect mate…if they can keep her satisfied

Felicia Walker loves her job as an illustrator at Fever Hitch Comics. During this year’s annual Earth Con, she will not only draw caricatures, but she’ll also be decked out in body paint to represent the F’ldae -- an alien species from the comics. As she starts off a night exploring the off-limits, alien side of the convention, Felicia is unprepared for the spiraling events that will make her behave like a true F’ldae…in full mating heat.

Agent Slate Reese, along with his best friend Agent Ryker Seals, are Metons who want to settle down, but they’re having a difficult time finding the female to complete their mating trio. An investigation lands in their laps that demands they attend the chaotic Earth Con, and Ryker sees this as an opportunity to release built up tension. With the vast assortment of alien species converging on this one area, surely there’s one female who wouldn’t mind spending a night with the both of them.

Some say Earth Con is a once-in-a-lifetime event, but will this particular one be the last for this fated trio, or will it be the beginning of many yet to come?  


Ryker lifted the drink to his lips and took a long swig. “Ah, Tazar beer. Nothing else like it in the universe.”

“You aren’t shittin’ me,” Slate mumbled, sipping modestly of his drink. “Stuff tastes like crap. I don’t see how you stomach it.”

“Acquired taste, my man.”

Slate grunted and set his forearms on the table.

“Do you think we’ll get any hits?” he asked Ry.

Ry shrugged and watched various species interact on the dance floor. “It’s a big convention. We made our rounds, dropped our hints, left our contacts. Now we sit and wait.”

Slate rubbed his huge hands together. “Something feels off.”

“You ever been to a con before?”

Slate shook his head no.

“They always feel off, like the universe is tilted or something. I think it’s because of the huge intermix of species coupled with the fact that we’re in an alternate plane here. Remember, the humans have not accepted other species as a general rule, so our presence is still relatively unknown to the humans next door.”

Slate chuckled. “You’ve always been the analyzer.”

“It’s why you keep me as your partner.”

The men shared a brief chuckle, then Slate spoke up again.

“Remember that walkway over on the human side? It was near the booth for that comic book place.”

“You mean Fever Hitch -- they’re the ones sponsoring this whole thing. But yeah, I remember. Why?”

“Did you see the F’ldae onstage?”

“No. Really? They don’t go out much. That species is frightened of their own skin.”

“Exactly. So why am I seeing the same F’ldae on the dance floor?”

Ry whipped his head around to where Slate was boring a hole through a female. Yes, it was a F’ldae, and Ry couldn’t believe his eyes. The little female was snuggled up next to a Bulzant, and that overgrown plastic looking thing looked to almost swallow the female. She turned bright eyes up to it and said something that made the Bulzant quiver.

“Damn, I never knew that species could move like that,” Ry said, amazed.

“What? The F’ldae?”

“No, the Bulzant.”

“Does it look like she’s okay to you?”

“Who? The F’ldae? Yes. She’s jamming right along --“ Ry cut his words off as his eyes zeroed in on her.

“What?” Slate wanted to know.

Ry chuckled. “Looks like your timid little creature is in heat.”

“What do you mean?”

“Wait until she turns -- there. See the orange markings along her ribcage? When a F’ldae goes into heat, those markings show up.”

Ry shifted back to his drink and noticed Slate hadn’t taken his eyes off the female. Hmm…

On the human side, he’d noticed Slate staring at the walkway but hadn’t thought too much about it. It seemed that F’ldae had caught his eye. And seeing her move on the dance floor just a little bit ago had caught Ry’s eye.

A F’ldae. In heat.

They didn’t have to ask her to be their third in a permanent relationship, but maybe he could sweet talk her into being their third for the night.

You can still indulge your convention love 
by immersing yourself in Fever Hitch

New Release Today: A Box Set

October is one of my favorite months: between fall setting in and Halloween, anything can happen. This month is extra special for me because I have a new Box Set being released from one of my publishers, Changeling Press (wide spread release will be at the end of the month).  

Malathix Soul comprises three previously released titles of mine: Soulless, Broken, and Jagged. It's darker sci-fi erotic romance that is sure to set you on fire! Check it out: 

by Ayla Ruse 

{At a special sale price!}

Three aliens search for the key to their survival within the human women they are fated to bond with. 

Soulless: Province of New Texas, Earth, Year 2142 Space Lord Theradon, of the merchant planet Malathix, lives on the edge of a darkness that threatens every human around him. He must find the piece of him that's missing or face his demise. Laya Brummel unknowingly carries within herself the means to his survival. When the pair finally come face to face, will it be too late to stop the death and destruction, or will they find something deeper to hold them together and save them both? 

Broken: Earth Star Command Station, Year 2142 Thorn d'Thiem is a man on a mission. Traveling to Earth to kick his sorry brother's ass back to Malathix is an interruption he can do without. His plan: get to Earth, find his brother, return to their planet and continue working toward their species' survival. Yvette Butler needs to escape her job on Earth's satellite outpost. Her plan: find a way to get off the outpost, leave Earth behind and find a new job and a new life on another planet. Will they work together to repair what's broken in them, or will they part ways, leaving only shattered remains? 

Jagged: Southern Province of New Canada, Earth, Year 2143 Camden Royst lives by a code of honesty and logic. When he bonds with his human, it's without the emotional upheavals his crewmates suffer. But his female isn't happy, and he can't understand why. Deidre Parker always dreamed of being swept off her feet by a tall, handsome alien. But Camden won't open up to her, and she can't live with a half-sided arrangement. When they lay their cards on the table will what they reveal be enough to repair their damaged hearts? 

Publisher's Note: Malathix Soul (Box Set) contains the previously published novellas Soulless, Broken, and Jagged.
