picture of cover of Morgan's ReturnA short excerpt from my latest novel, the sequel to Morgan’s Choice, Morgan’s Return.

Morgan and Ravindra are on a planet where the women are in charge. It’s not Ravindra’s scene, no, not at all.

Two people, a man and a woman, dressed in cream trousers and shirts, their belts bulky with attachments, ambled toward him. No doubt the local police. He noted each carried a nerve whip, and a sidearm in a holster. The two slowed down, glancing at Jirra and Prasad, who sat together on a low wall.

The female police officer stared at him as she approached, looking him up and down as though he were a piece of meat. She licked her lips, a glint in her eye, her gaze sliding down to his groin, undressing him with her eyes.

The last time a woman had had the temerity to look at him like that, he’d been a callow youth fresh out of the Academy, a target for older women looking for some action while their husbands were away. He glared at her.

She stopped in front of him and turned, standing with legs apart, hands on hips, a hint of a lascivious smile lurking around her lips.

“On your feet,” she drawled.

Ravindra’s hackles rose. Still, this was another planet, different rules. He stood, taking his time, and folded his arms, gazing down at her. “Is there a problem?”

About Greta van der Rol

I'm an author of fast-paced, action-adventure novels, mainly space opera - although I've been known to write in other genres. I live not far from the coast in Queensland, Australia and enjoy photography and cooking when I'm not bent over the computer. I have a degree in history and a background in building information systems, both of which go a long way toward helping me in my writing endeavours.

  1. Misandry instead of misogyny? It makes for an interesting culture clash.

  2. Nice build up of tension/conflict. A nerve whip? Ohh, that sounds like a nasty tool for ensuring compliance.

  3. Very interesting set up. Strong men aren’t something I usually see drop in on a female-dominated society. I may have to check this out more.

  4. Ohh alpha male meets alpha female. Could lead to sparks there, Greta!

  5. Oh, boy! Sparks flying before they even said a word!
