Southern Syfy has arrived in this “Dukes of Hazzard meets Buck Rogers” adventure tale.
In a future spawned from the headlines of today, enter a world of contrasts, where Man has conquered the heavens, while at the same time becoming quickly obsolete on his own world. A world where science and technology brings exotic fantasy creatures to life … for the right price. Where hot rod rockets and redneck “spacers” rule the skies.
Tiger Thomas was a rocket pilot during the Great Space Rush, when humankind colonized the Solar System in the twenty-second century. Now, all that’s winding down, and so has the demand for old spacers like him. He makes a living now doing whatever jobs he can find, legal and otherwise.
Returning to his hometown of Huntsville, Tiger looks forward to a relaxing weekend back on Earth. Who knows, he might even re-kindle that old flame with Lulah Carter, "the one that got away" years ago. A dinner and dancing ... who knows what might happen.
But when he rescues a genetically engineered, anthropomorphic fox girl from a clan of vicious, hillbilly thugs, his homecoming quickly turns sour.
Somebody wants this sexy, furry darling back. BAD! And they’ll do whatever it takes, including killing anyone who stands in their way. Tiger and newfound companion soon find themselves on the run from a deadly, high-tech unit of bounty hunters. And if that ain’t bad enough, revelations about this beautiful vixen starts to disturb him. Is she really a victim? Is there more to her than just a pretty face and a bushy tail? Is there something else? A part hidden and dangerous, waiting for the right time to manifest itself? And with all that to ponder on, there's also one other small problem ... he finds himself irresistibly attracted to her.
Oh, and then there’s that whole Lulah thing again. As if things weren’t complicated enough.
Well, so much for a relaxing weekend.

About the Author
I'm a Southern writer from the Birmingham, Alabama area. I'm married to my lovely wife, have 2 great kids, and a lazy ol' dog (the VERY reason I picked him at the shelter.) I guess people would say I'm living the dream, and I probably couldn't argue. I'm pretty blessed. When I'm not writing, I am reading, listening to good music (which leaves out a lot of today's stuff), going to the movies with the family or travelling around trying to broaden my horizons. I enjoy writing adult fiction and erotica. After all, who doesn't mind being a little naughty from time to time? People I don't wanna hang with, that's who! Let's face it, reading something hot stirs up the old hormones, releases endorphins, makes people feel good! This world could use a whole helluva lot more of that these days! As you may have already noticed, with me, what you see is what you get, subtlety has never been my style. Like fried chicken, Daisy Duke and football, my work has a decidedly down-home flavor. I always believe you write about what you know, and believe me, I know Southern. Visit me at https://www.facebook.com/JMorganWoodall or if you're on Twitter I'm @jmorganwoodall. Thanks

'Spacer' Tiger Thomas was just planning on a quiet weekend, but a surprise fell in his lap. The little fox is grateful for his rescue. Lulah Carter, Tiger's old flame, is hoping to get together with him. Things don't go as planned when hires guns chase after the fox and Tiger.
Not really a reader of sci-fi books but I really liked this one. It’s set in the future but Tanner “Tiger” portrays a good old southern boy in a time full of technology. I really enjoyed his time of reminiscing about the moments he had with his father and uncle. I also enjoy the aspect of half human half animal hybrid characters as it adds a flair to the story that I obviously don’t get when reading regular romance /erotic novels. There are a lot of political references, disdain for higher society, and of course lots of action haha. I’ll definitely be looking into more books in this genre as my interest has been sparked. :)
New to me author. I'm not new to sci-fi romance and this was probably closer to sci-fi than romance even though there was sex and other aspects. Tiger was a bit of a "dog" if you know what I mean but he was a nice guy for the most part. This is different from what I've read before which is good because more of the same is boring. Sometimes the dialogue got a bit much and kinda lost a little of the story for me. I didn't love the rape scene of our poor fox though. A warning needed to happen there. So it's not something I can read again. Personal reasons which for people sensitive to those kinds of things I need to be forewarned. Overall an ok read. It doesn't end on HEA but a for now. It's not finished I don't think though.
This is the second book I have read by this author, and is a different style to his first undertaking. This is a great scifi romp, set in the not so far distant future, space travel has become the norm and deep space pilots are off world for long periods of time. We meet our southern hero Tiger, a semi retired deep space pilot, who is not adverse to doing a little smuggling to make a dollar. Coming home from his last little smuggling sojourn in deep space for a bit of R&R, and to reconnect with his former love Lulah. We then find our hero getting sidetracked, doing the gentlemanly thing, saving a young woman's life, but she is not your typical young woman, realising that helping her is getting him deeper in trouble, he makes the decision that he cannot abandon her to fend for herself. So then the fun begins, extremely good gun fight scenes, as bounty hunters seek to take the woman away. Tiger discovers dangerous secrets, unexpected helpers and crazy hillbillies determined to harm the girl and anyone else in the way. Well written, interesting characters, very likeable main characters, both the good guys and some bad guys, and a few you really really dislike. All in all a good read, bit of fun, with some surprising twists and turns, that make for a great adventure. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. If you like a bit of scifi adventure with a healthy dose of Eroticism, I thoroughly recommend it.
