As an obstetrician, volunteer and caretaker to several eccentric family members, Lillian Smythe has a full life. So when Aunt Fran does her annual birthday tarot reading and predicts Lillian will meet her true love, she’s not sure that’s a blessing. Even if the naked, well-endowed man on the King of Swords card does make her hot.

Serving as chauffeur to senile old ladies isn’t what caused Detective Brent Kennedy to move home, but as the new guy, Brent has to take whatever assignments are thrown his way. Having grown up on the wrong side of the tracks, he’s out to prove himself, even if it means he has to babysit Miss Smythe until her guardian can come pick her up.

Lillian is shocked. Brent looks exactly like the model on her birthday blessing card. But class differences, thefts and one very opinionated ghost come between them and Lillian begins to have doubts. Even if the is the best birthday gift she’s ever had.

Genre: Science Fiction
Author: Darrell Bain
Publisher: Twilight Times Books
Date of Release: March 2007
ISBN: 978-1933353661


Darrell Bain’s finest novel to date. Savage Survival is a coming of age novel like no other and Lyda Brightner is a character you’ll remember forever. Raped at eleven. Forced to kill. Subjected to suffering in one brutal and horrible environment after another, with no parents or guardian to protect her as she grows up. Millions of earthmen have been captured by invulnerable aliens and are being put through the strangest and most terrifying survival tests ever imagined. Young Lyda Brightner’s first experience after being thrown into the midst of undisciplined humans is horrible enough, but she doesn’t know that the trials are just beginning. She doesn’t know that only a few hundred of the millions of captives will live through the vicious and cruel winnowing process. Again and again as she grows into a young woman, she has to call on the only resources she has available: her own innate bravery, her quick mind, her unwavering belief in the goodness of the majority of humans and ultimately, an enduring hope that one day she will find someone to love. But even if she lives through all this, she will still have to face the final question. What do the aliens have in mind for the few survivors?

What words of inspiration do you have for writers who dream of being authors one day?
