Zero Gravity: Hawk and Kristina
The final book in the Believe Series, Shadow of the Hawk, was released through Cobblestone- Press in July. A shifter, Hawk or Grant Carmichael, can be relieved of his trial of being a hawk if he finds Merlin’s stolen book. Part of the challenge is engaging Kristina Palmer, a paranormal, in the search. And…zero-g draws the two, rubbing them to heat and vibrate in hot sensual attraction.
Zero gravity is weightlessness or the absence of stress and strain resulting from externally applied forces. Truly zero-g is more scientific and I’m only skimming the surface here, but relating zero-g to romance is when two accelerated forces come together.
Think of the impact of that first kiss with someone you adore. The electric of the impact might be strong enough to make you feel weightless. Right?
Grant, unwillingly, becomes a shifter as his punishment deemed fitting by Merlin after Grant helped a thief (Lilith) steal Merlin’s book of magic.
For centuries Grant uses his non-gravitation ability to search for the one woman who, as depicted in a prophecy, will help him find the book and return to being a human instead of a shifter.
According to Wikipedia zero-g is when “bodies are acted upon by non-gravitational forces, as in a centrifuge, a rotating space station, or within a space ship with rockets firing, a sensation of weight is produced, as the forces overcome the body’s inertia.”
For certain, a firing sensation rushed through Kristina when Grant kissed her. His arrogance and features reminded her of her gypsy relatives, but his kiss—straight from her dreams.
Despite wanting another kiss, she drew the chair in front of her like a shield.
And Grant, oh my. He put down the scroll, without reading the rest of the prophecy. He’d been drawn to her. Her warm and supple lips, slightly parted as if she’d anticipated the kiss, consumed his. Drugged by the contact, he wavered, then acted without clear and conscious thought, adding passion to the kiss. Yet, he wanted more, needed more.
Freefalling, Grant dives into a relationship with the beautiful woman he’s only dreamed about and planned to use to find a book.
Except, Kristina doesn’t feel the same.
During their international journey Grant draws even closer to Kristina, digging deep and finding they share more in common. Lack of gravity creates a problem when encountering a black hole and Lilith becomes that black hole sucking Kristina and Grant into a trap.
The satchel holding Myrddin’s bible clunked as it hit the floor. Grant’s stomach muscles tightened as he lost his one connection to being human again. His clothing fell off, and feathers twisted and turned, exploding from the inside out. He clutched his talons, shaping them to attack. He glanced at Kristina on the opposite side of the room. Two guards remained, and one sent lightning bolts in her direction.
“Kristina,” Mrs. Palmer wailed.
Kristina’s cells displaced, collecting into a whole in front of her mother.
He flew toward Lilith, dodging blasts of fire. Using his talons, he clutched her gun. It exploded with the bullet directed toward Kristina and her mother.
Zero-g is non-uniform.
Point of contact is made with a second object. For example the contact of a bullet with the woman he’s fallen in love.
Grant sucks in a huge breath. Can Kristina avoid the bullet?

“Simple educator” doesn’t begin to describe Kristina, not when she has the ability to read minds and shove someone’s molecules into another dimension. The kidnapping of her little brother by the Dark Angel adds another complication to her life, which is already messed by desiring Grant Carmichael.
Grant uses shifting and clairsentience searching for a means to an end, until he touches Kristina Palmer. A jolt of normal excited him and for the first time, in a century, he’d have to navigate a relationship the old-fashioned way. But will the sweet paranormalist allow him, a shifter, to seduce her?
