Lyndi welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Sixshooter.
Sixshooter by Lyndi Alexander
Genre Science fiction romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Valeni Pascual wants to be free to make a living hauling cargo with her spaceship and to understand the shapeshifting alien who presents sometimes as the steamy male Nik and other times as the blonde bombshell Nikki.
As a rebel insurgence builds against the oppressive government known as the Agency, Valeni and Nik/Nikki encounter a sexy Terran cowboy named Garrett Rawls. Since being pulled into this region of space by another mysterious wormhole, Garrett has looked for a way to return to Earth. After meeting Valeni and Nikki, he might have found something worth staying for.
However, dark forces may have a much bigger picture in mind for all of them. Valeni, Nik/Nikki, and Garrett are pulled into a life and death fight that lays bare all of their secrets and their desires. Will they lose everything as the battle against the Agency rages around them or can love pull them through?
Know the Hero from Sixshooter
Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.
It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?
He’s got Valeni and Nikki to be with if he wants female companionship, Nicholas and Luca if he wants an old-fashioned boys’ night…. but if they aren’t around, he’d likely watch old vids, read, tinker with the ship or toss a ball against the bulkhead, Steve McQueen-style.
What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?
Hot dog or sausage, something salty and not lowfat. He wouldn’t pay any mind to what actually is in the hot dog. This is a great trait in a new universe where you definitely have no idea what’s stuffed in between your bread.
Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.
He comes from Earth, in the western territories, so he is partial to denim or denim- type fabric pants, button up shirt. Natural type fabrics. I can’t see him in polyester type fabrics, no Trek onesies. Space suits or the like only in emergencies.
Does he know how to fix things?
He’s not bad at it. His favorite uncle and his Grandpa Maurice made sure this little cowboy was good with his hands. He could probably MacGyver almost anything.
He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.
He was asked to transport a cargo to another planet, without being allowed to know what the cargo contained. Being a good captain, he objected to this, but was persuaded by his friend Valeni to accept it anyway. His curiosity got the better of him and he pried one of the crates open. What he found was startling, and the consequences of his action were deadly.
How does he act around children he doesn’t know?
Just like he’s their big brother and gets to play with them all day and doesn’t have to act like an adult.
What is he like first thing in the morning?
Definitely a “hit the snooze button, put the pillow over his head, ten more minutes mom” person. Unless what’s waking him is a pretty girl in his bed. Then he just does what comes naturally. 😊
How does he act around people who don’t know what he is?
Not any different than he does the rest of the time. Garrett is what he is—everyone else can take it or leave it.
Will he let a worker handle things or do it himself?
He wouldn’t rudely take over, but he’s been raised to be a good guy and to be helpful, so he’d likely offer to help or even just handle something himself rather than bother someone who’s busy.
Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?
Hey, what you do when you’re drunk can’t be held against you, can it? I mean, there might be a tattoo. Or two.
Personal vehicle or public transport?
Personal. And with as much power as it can have.
Recycle or toss?
Traveling spacemen always conserve whatever’s possible, so recycle or give it to someone who needs it.
(With thanks for input to Kellie Hicks, who first originated Garrett long ago in an online RPG)
