THE ALLIANCE Series by S. E. Smith: Interview & Giveaway

Razor’s Traitorous Heart
The Alliance, Book 2

Kali Parks is a shadow in the war between two factions that are fighting to gain control of Chicago. Born and raised on the streets, she stands as a silent sentinel at her brother’s side as he battles to gain control. She will do whatever it takes to bring peace to those she has pledged her life to protect, including fighting against the creatures that came to their world almost six years before.

Razor, a councilman for the Alliance, has been sent to oversee the remaining Trivator troops on Earth and make sure the transition for the induction of Earth into the Alliance goes smoothly. He is the one the Alliance calls when they have a situation that needs to be resolved once and for all. His reputation for dealing with difficult rebels is renowned. He asks no questions and takes no prisoners. His job is to eliminate all threats to the Alliance.

He finds himself torn between duty and something he is unfamiliar with, his heart. When a shadow warrior saves his life and disappears, he discovers his world is no longer as cut and dry as he thought. The more he learns, the more he discovers he is not immune to the warrior’s passionate desire to fight to protect her people.

Forced by duty to settle the conflict, he must decide between the Alliance and his own desire to claim the unwilling warrior. When the conflict escalates, he does the only thing he can; he makes a pact with one of the factions in exchange for a prize that will surely cause a battle of a different kind – the one for his traitorous heart.

Will he be able to claim her before she escapes from him again? Or worse, will she sacrifice her life to protect those she loves before he can?

“Hey, is anyone alive in there?” A soft voice called out from behind him. “Oh God!”

Razor turned his head as far as he could but from the position he was in he couldn’t see who had called out. He could only feel it. A deep heat mixed with the pain running through him. Frustrated, he closed his eyes and wrapped his hand around the top of the metal in his leg and pulled in another deep breath in preparation for the pain that would come with removing it.

His eyes jerked open when he felt slender fingers close around his wrist. “Wait,” the husky voice whispered next to his ear. “Let me make sure it didn’t hit an artery. If it did, you’ll be dead before I can get you to safety.”

Razor turned his head and breathed in the sweet scent of wildflowers. A low moan escaped before he could contain it. The heat inside him flared again, rushing through him at such a speed that he had to close his eyes again to calm the dizziness.

“I am dead either way,” he murmured as the metal around them creaked and shifted again.
“Not on my watch you aren’t,” the voice replied with a trace of amusement. “Now, keep your pantyhose on....

Hunter’s Claim
The Alliance, Book 1

Jesse Sampson and her two younger sisters have lived a hard life on the streets of Seattle, Washington for the past several years.

Four years before, the Earth received its first visitors from space causing mass fear.

Alone in a world gone mad with just her sisters, she has learned to use the darkness and the remains of the city to survive and keep what was left of her family alive. She has seen the savage side of human nature and finds they are not much different from the aliens who conquered Earth.

The Trivators have taken control of Earth to prevent the humans from destroying it in their fear.

A world of warriors, they are sent out by the Alliance of Star Systems to seek out new worlds. Their mission is first contact. They are to establish communications with the leaders of the new worlds they find and bring them into the Alliance.

Any resistance is to be quickly subdued to prevent unnecessary death of the inhabitants of the new worlds they find. Their payment comes from the success of their mission.

Hunter is what he is called. A hunter, one of the elite clans of the Trivators who seek out those who resist. His abilities to track, capture and eliminate those who try to harm any warrior is renowned.

He finds the tables turned when he becomes the one captured by a group of ruthless humans. Hunter is shocked when a strange human female risks her life to help him escape only to disappear into the ruins of the city.

He now has a new mission, finding the female who saved his life. He is determined to find her before she is damaged by others of her kind.

What he finds is a reward beyond comprehension to a Trivator warrior, a family.

Can he convince Jesse that he can give her and her younger sisters a better life on his world? Or will fear keep her from accepting what he has to offer?

Please give a warm welcome to Alliance Series author S. E. Smith.  Thank you for stopping by today.

What is your favorite part of the Alliance Series?

I think my favorite part is when the couples first meet. There is just some type of magic in the way the characters interact. The curiosity, the fear, the determination to do what is right even if it scares the daylights out of them.

If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?

Trisha Grove! She would have me living in comfort before the sun set the first night!

If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?

Gracie Jones. She is so down to Earth and determined. She is one friend that would be by your side even if you screwed up.

What inspired you to write your first book?

My husband inspired me to write my first book. He told me I needed a hobby. What I needed was a way to relax. I have always used storytelling as a way to help me when I was stressed, tired or bored. Every night I make up a new story to help me go to sleep. I've done that all my life. It seemed natural to just write what I was 'seeing'.

What is your favorite book that you wrote?

Lily's Cowboys is probably my favorite because she was my first book. There is something about Lily that makes me believe. She gave me the strenght when I didn't believe in myself.

Who or what inspired you to be a writer?

My mom's dad was my biggest inspiration. He died before I was born in an oil field accident. The times were tough and so was he. But inside, was a man who could write a beautiful, sensitive poem that told the story of heartache and pain. When my mom first gave me his poem when I was about twelve to read. She had found it in a box as she was going through some paperwork. He told the story of a horrific tornado in Hope, Arkansas. 

What is your typical day like?  

My typical day up until a week ago was pretty hectic. I wake between 5-5:30 am; get ready for work, check my emails and do whatever paperwork I can, then head out for a full day as a Technical Support Specialist going from school to school repairing equipment, installing software and troubleshooting issues. I would get home around 4 pm and answer emails before working on whichever story had claimed my attention. I took out enough time to fix dinner, clean a bit, maybe mow the yard if it was yard mowing day, before going back to the story and writing until about 9 pm when I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. After two years of working 80+ hours a week, I finally decided it was time to make a choice. I am now a full time writer who is going to be using some of that extra time for 'me' time.   
How do you overcome writer’s block?

I don't often have issues with this but when I do, I close my eyes and ask the characters to talk to me. So far, they've done a peachy job of it!

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I've just released two stories: Razor's Traitorous Heart: The Alliance Book 2 and A Warrior's Heart: Marastin Dow Book 1.1 in the anthology Alphas Unleashed. Razor's story follows what happens when aliens answer Earth's message. Razor is brought in to help end the conflicts between fighting factions who refuse to accept the Alliance. A Warrior's Heart is the story of two brothers who were kidnapped from Earth when they were young. They have managed to survive but it has not been easy. Just when they believe their luck has ended they meet two sisters from a species known as the Marastin Dow. This story follows their discovery of finding love when they least expect it and their willingness to fight to keep it.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

If I had one thing to say to my readers it would have to be Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is their belief in me and my characters that helps me continue to have the strenght and courage to write and share my stories.
