Angela's Epistles Tour and Giveaway

The Gap Year
Angela's Epistles Book 1
by Rita Kruger
Genre: SciFi LGBT Romance 

Angela Wright might have everything her father's money can buy, but that meant nothing to her on the night of her twenty-eight birthday. She is angry and a little bit drunk as she flees the scene of a fight with her mother.

All her life she has done the right thing. But she is tired of living under her mother’s shadow. How can she ever compete with Margaret Wright, the first Human judge on the Intergalactic High Court?

Within the space of a few days, Angela drops out in the last semester at Intergalactic Bureau of Investigation Academy, signs a bounty hunting contract to find the top ten criminals in the galaxy, and kisses Brenda, her best friend since childhood.
She might be late, but at last she is blooming.

“My gawd,” a voice said behind her.
Angela turned to see two teenage girls standing there with their mother. They were on the new treadmill bikes, where you walked on a treadmill like conveyer strip, and this created power to drive the bike. To Angela the ‘bike’ looked more like a skateboard with a handle. She considered getting herself one, but then decided to spend the money on an AI lover instead.
She got an older model. The saleswoman told her that he looked like Brad Pitt, whoever the hell that was. But at least now she could have cuddles- and more, as needed- and not have to run into the first available man’s arms.
The girl’s eyes were on the dress. It was quite exquisite, she thought earlier when she put it on. A figure-hugging dress covered in tiny silver sequins that weighted down on her like a heavy hand… or a tainted conscience.
“Is that a Clayton?” the blue haired girl asked.
“It sure is,” Angela said with a smile.
Gasps rose all around her. Some people liked Clay for his brand. Designer to the stars and the extremely rich and famous. Appointment by invitation only. She hated him because he was a brutal man who hit his girlfriends when they didn’t obey his every command. Under the dress were two small scars made by his rings. They would always be there to remind her of that mistake. The emotional scars on her mind would be with her forever.
And to avoid stupidity like that, Brad Pitt was worth every credit she spent so far, and

any future updates to software or maintenance that might need to be paid. He was a great listener, cuddled like a dream, didn’t complain when she slept with one arm and leg draped over him, and performed beyond expectations in all the required departments.

Sins of the Fathers
Angela's Epistles Book 2

Angela Wright is new to bounty hunting, and on her way to find Nuremburg, a cop-killer. She is also new to Uranus. And to loving a woman. She thinks she’s doing rather well, for a late bloomer. 

She learns that Uranus’ has a nickname. “Black widow.” Interesting Creatures. An underground where the resistance live in squalor. And a box with journals and pictures from her father, Winston James Wright.

Only, he died when she was six years old.
Meanwhile on Earth, a stalker rears his head. His has his eyes and mind Angela’s girlfriend, Bren.
Maybe blooming isn’t really what she thought it would be. Or maybe it is just that everyone else had a head start.

Back in her room, she put a video call through to Bren. Waiting for the connection to be made, she drummed her fingers on the table, already feeling the walls close in around her. At last Bren’s face appeared.
“You are a sight for sore eyes, babes,” Angela said.
“You look tired,” she answered.
“I’m not sleeping well,” Angela told her, wiping a hand over her face. “The bed is uncomfortable.”
“Is it too hard? Too soft?”
“Too empty without you,” Angela said, watching the smile spread across Bren’s face.
“Same here.”
“Everything here is so small and cramped.”
“Let me show you,” Angela took the screen, and turned it towards the door, “this is where you come in. Kitchen across from the office,” she moved the screen to the other side of the room. “Bed there. Shower there. Everything in a space the size of our kitchen.”
“No windows?”
“That would drive me crazy,” Bren said.
“And I’m stuck here because it’s raining and that releases some sort of toxic gas,” Angela said. “No-one is allowed outside.”

“Oh, no!”

Dancing in the Dark
Angela's Epistles Book 3

This is book three of Angela’s Epistles Series.

Finally Angela tastes success in as a bounty hunting. The Top Ten list of worst criminals was changing because of what she did. Having conquered her new career, she now turned her mind to new endeavours.

Bren, her girlfriend, was still plagued by a stalker, and the police was not helping much.
Angela starts to read her father’s journals, at last. He speaks about a betrayal. They are also filled with concern for the atrocities that was happening on Uranus. Therefore she sets forth to rescue her brother from the Black Widow (Uranus). She has a brilliant scheme, a map, and just in case, a Plan B.
But can she leave Uranus untouched? Will its darkness touch her? Will she, and the team of people who are gathering, be able to get to the stalker before he gets to Bren?

“So tell me what happened before I go crazy.”
“He left something on the doorstep,” Bren said, and shook her head as if she wanted to rid herself of something really bad.
“It probably wasn’t flowers and chocolates,” Angela said. “By the look on your face.”
“It was blood.”
Bren coughed to clear her throat. Nodded. Coughed again.
“Three wine bottles, neatly cleaned, filled with blood,” Bren said. “And a nice hand-written card.”
“Human blood?”
“It’s at the police lab for testing. We’ll know in the morning.”
“You saw the detective that helped Thomas and Sarah the night they were kicked out?”
“Yes,” Bren said. “Detective Peacock.”
“What did he say?”
“He took a statement from me and Thomas. Sent a team of investigators to our home. They took finger prints and shoe prints and all kinds of stuff. But the detective said it might all just be ours.”
“That’s true.”
“So we are waiting to hear from them.”
“Did he text again?”
“Only to say there was a gift waiting. Nothing else.”
“That’s strange,” Angela said.
“Trim suggested that he gets a thrill out of seeing my reaction to the texts,” Bren said. “And since we removed all the cameras inside, it has lost its power.”
“If that is true,” Angela said, “and I do believe it might be, he would have been watching you as you went for the gift.”
“You think?” Bren asked, her eyes large and filled with fear.
“I do.”
“Gawd,” Bren cried, “I just want this to be over.”
“Me too, babes. Where’s Trim?”
“Outside. Patrolling the border, as he puts it.”
“He went with you to the police station?”
“He didn’t,” Bren said. “Insisted that as few people as possible should know of his presence. Says he is our,” Bren made quotation brackets in the air with her fingers, “secret weapon.”
“I love the idea,” Angela said. “To outsiders he will look like a wild creature, at most a beloved pet. Who would ever guess he has intelligence, or expect his strength?”
Bren nodded. “That is true.”
“Secret weapon,” Angela smiled. “You’d swear he had been doing this all his life.”
“Maybe he dreamed about it all his life?”
“He was in the resistance movement,” Angela said. “So he probably learned a thing or two.”
“Like setting traps? That would be nice,” Bren said.
“Imagine waking up tomorrow morning and there the perv is, hanging from the oak tree in the back.”

Bren smiled. “Oh, how I wish.”

“I think it would be better to look at that with Trim and Angelo present. They have a so much first-hand knowledge about the planet that might be useful once we start putting the pieces on the table.”
“Also,” he told her, “I think you need to start reading those journals. We don’t know how the court case will end. I also suggest we scan them, just in case.”
“You think I might lose this case?”
“I hope not,” he told her, “but this is Margaret you are going up against.”
“You are right, I know,” Angela answered. “But it is slow going with the code he used.”
“I always thought he was paranoid,” Thomas told her. “But then the death threats started arriving. Letters of warning that you’d disappear, or be maimed, or killed. That got to him. He could not comprehend what kind of a person would want to kill an innocent six-year-old because of the things her father were involved with.”
“You think he planned his own death?”
“No,” Thomas said. “But I do think he was preparing for the next attempt. He hammered me for that promise to look after you. This was for weeks before the event. I think he had decided that he was going to just disappear but was waiting for the right opportunity.”
“And he got it,” she said.
“He sure did,” Thomas said. “He loved you like his own. I don’t know if he ever knew you weren’t his, but he loved you more than anything in this world. If it weren’t for you, he’d have left Margaret within that first year of their marriage.”

“Maybe the journals will tell us if he did know,” she said. “Because I clearly don’t look anything like him.”
