Where duty proves one hell of a four-letter word...

To whom it may concern,

It's time for me to run. I've always been kick-ass gal who never had to fight for necessities like most people of Earth in 2193 A.D. Born the only daughter to a career Space Marine officer, I was fortunate because opportunity placed an open doorway in my path at every turn. I rejuvenated hope on a planet ravaged from the perils of overpopulation by opening a wormhole...Not only did I stumble onto alien worlds and create even bigger nightmares the Global Bureaucracy fears I can't repair, but something about traveling through the wormhole makes people sick, forcing cybernetic implants--a technological band-aid--that doesn't set well with Earth huggers.

The Global Bureaucracy must flag me both a savior and detriment to Earth. I would too given the skeletons in my closet feel like one of those unshakable repetitive bad dreams. But someone is murdering my scientific peers from the wormhole project and my bodyguards--men who are the only people keeping me rooted in this reality's countdown to the moment my last brain cell blows making it impossible to correct the technical glitch with wormhole travel. Ultimately, the trail of bodies can only mean one thing--the murderer is coming for me.

I don't know what to run from--nightmares, memories, alien technology, or something caused by the wormhole's energy either in my brain or in my reality. And if this insanity can happen to me, how many earthlings who traveled through the wormhole will suffer as I have? So, I now run, unprotected by cybernetic implants, risking my life in stepping through the wormhole, heading to the crappiest Space Marine outpost in the galaxy to go into hiding, where my uncle, General Mad Axe, the outpost's commander, might be able to help me skirt the murderer long enough to correct the problem with wormholes before my body or my mind is irretrievably sucked back INTO THE SLIPSTREAM.

Dr. Charlotte Barley
Head scientist of The Quintet, the Wormhole Project

P.S. If you managed to hack into my computer and you're reading this letter, I'm dead. Earth huggers are right. Do not travel by wormhole.

"Slipstream builds into ménage like two male cats trying for the same in-heat feline. Nope, no were-animals but I don't know how else to describe it. Fitzroy and Laurel, a.k.a hunky uptight space Marines, are the two most unlikely on the planet to share a woman especially at the same time. Their interaction is funny, frustrating, and at times hotter than molten lava. Charlotte's sex dreams take this book from M/F/M to F/M/M/M... The "one-liners" in this story had me laughing out loud."

"I quite liked this book! It was funny and engaging and it made me think -- and in no way, shape or form am I a science or math person, but I actually understood quite a bit of what was going on here. Props to Moncrief for making it understandable. pleasantly surprised by the quality of the book and laughing out loud at the following quote: "Always be on your guard or you'll wake up with an alien penis shoved up your ass..."

"My second ever read from Skhye Moncrief was a winner! I loved it. Humorous in spots and hot everywhere else. Slipstream was written well and the characters and plot were well developed." ~Readaholic Reviews

"The underlying plots are fantastic and there is never a dull moment technically nor sexually. The sleep sex is truly out of this world but the actual eye open sex events show tender moments, lust and a whole lot of good erotic fun. Doors are opened and exploration has not ended." ~Erzabet's Enchantments

Meet the Author

Educated in geology and anthropology, writing lured Skhye away from finishing her thesis in (bioarchaeology) anthropology. Aside from muscled men in fur, leather, denim, and kilts, Skhye loves cultural ecology, cultural evolution, cultural relativism, and natural processes. Big ideas. Simple concepts that manifest in world building to crazy people like Skhye who studied anthropology and geology before turning to writing romantic fiction. Her rule of thumb is to love the good, the bad, and the ugly of every culture in her tales so that every culture in her tales and every aspect of her stories resonates as real as possible. And yes, she's "certifiably" geek.
