She’s in a steady relationship with Penny Harris, but she can’t let go of her memories of Tess Hayes.

My name is Lilith Mae Madison and I am captain of the Phoenix. There is something strange happening on my ship, something that cannot be explained.

On the other side of the known universe, we are waiting for a wormhole to open so we can return home with news that could save the human race, but someone, or something, has other ideas. My crew are being picked off one by one, and whoever is responsible is very, very strong, and very, very clever.

I’m struggling to hold onto my sanity while also maintaining control of my ship and crew. My trust is divided between John, my second in command and Maggie, head biogeneticist and my lover. John is impulsive and headstrong, and I am unsure of his full intentions. Maggie, on the other hand, is gentle, kind, loving and sweet, but I know she is withholding information from me…vital information!

With time and crew running dangerously low, I must find the killer before it’s too late!

Prequel to the A Woman Lost series
by T.B. Markinson

Free for five days. It’s also enrolled in Kindle Unlimited. Hurry! Sale ends on April 27th.

Graduate student Lizzie Petrie feels more comfortable around books than people. Although an expert in the Hitler Youth, she’s a novice in love. Her former lesbian lover is blackmailing her, and not even those closest to Lizzie know the full story of their abusive relationship.

When visiting high school English teacher Sarah crosses Lizzie’s path at the campus, their attraction is instant, but not without complications. As they start to spend more time together, suspicions arise from both women in this sexy piece of LGBT fiction.

Plenty of good-natured teasing takes place between lovers as well as between PhD students in this lesbian contemporary romance. No relationship path ever runs smoothly, and oftentimes, those who can’t keep their mouth shut hasten necessary confrontation.

Lizzie finds herself buried in a mess of lies in this romantic comedy. The harder she tries to keep Sarah and the rest of her friends from finding out the truth about her first girlfriend, the more endearingly clueless she becomes.

A message from A. E. Radley

She’s conducting a lesbian and bi-women fiction survey to find out what people think about the genre. Questions range from pricing and promotion to editing and covers. A.E. needs your help. It takes less than ten minutes to complete the survey, and the responses are completely anonymous. The results will be made freely available to all authors and publishers and will hopefully help to shape the genre.

You can complete the survey by clicking here, and if you could share the survey with your friends on social media, that will help to get even more responses!
