New #SciFi #Romance Release MIND: The Beginning

My latest SciFi-Fantasy Romance is out today!! Check out the blurb and excerpt below!

After Dina Ranger loses telepathic contact with her twin brother, Duncan, she breaks into his apartment and stumbles onto a special government unit responsible for monitoring the psychic population. She’s offered a job where she can use her psionic gifts to help people.
Stranded on earth over a hundred years ago, Liam of Shria is searching for a metal needed to repair his ship when he finds Dina inside an alien escape pod and narrowly saves her after she trips the alarm.

As the mystery and their relationship deepens, Liam helps Dina learn the truth behind her abilities while uncovering a plot to rebuild an ancient weapon, exposing dangerous secrets about the alien presence on earth that may change the future forever.

Dina stared into the man’s eyes, trying not to notice how they somehow looked silver under the moon, and focused on linking with him. His gaze narrowed, as if he knew, but it didn’t stop her. She pushed harder, further, forcing the link. She felt a slight connection, concentrated more, felt it grow.
“Who are you?”
“Liam of—stop! Who the . . .?” he spat, stumbling back. “What are you?”
“What the hell was that thing?”
“Most likely an escape pod or module from a larger craft,” Liam said, blinked, and shook his head. His face turned darker, and he snarled, “I’ll answer your questions, Dina Ranger, but not by force. Release my mind!”
The man knew her name. Aside from the invisibility and teleportation, he had some telepathic abilities. He didn’t seem to be the man who had set the fires and wasn’t responsible for that pod in the Gut. He was searching for something else. When she ended the link, the scowl on his face softened, his lips almost curling upward in one corner. His eyes, now a darker shade of gray, swept across the field to the pillar of smoke rising in the air. It grew bigger and darker, stinking up the Gut worse than it already smelled. They really needed to leave.
“Yes, we do.”
Dina grunted and unlocked the car. “Get in.”
They reached the end of the service road without a problem. No sign of sirens when they turned onto Route 9. She hoped the explosion was far enough into the Hook that no one noticed, but it seemed awfully loud to her. Then again, a front row seat would do that.
The man sitting beside her chuckled softly.
“Something funny, buddy?”
“You, you spunky little ball of energy.”
“Seriously? All right, let’s start over. I’m Dina Ranger, thanks for saving me from the exploding escape pod thing.”
“Hi, I’m Liam, and you’re welcome.”
“Why were you there?”
“Same reason as you, the radiation. My scans picked it up.”
“You have radiation data from there?”
“Mostly residual. Now I know why. The pod was covered, leaking bits of radiation into the dirt. Over time, it dissipates into the air, leaving small traces behind, not usually detectible from satellites in space.”
“Do you have readings on anything else?”
“Are you government?”
Dina slammed on the breaks, threw the car in park, and turned sideways. “Who are you?”
“You won’t believe me.”
        “Try me.”
