The Triton Experiment series continues with Fighting Kat and one of the main questions readers had from Hunting Kat (Book 1) was how Kaitlyn and Rygard would make things work after the events on Dysnomia Station.
Kaitlyn and Rygard each have their own, distinct lives. As a mercenary, Kaitlyn is always on the move taking job after job as part of Captain Devron Rishkillian’s crew. Likewise, Rygard has covert, high risk missions to carry out for the Terran military. Neither gets much R&R planet-side, much less on the same planet—or space station—for quality together time. This makes the idea of being “together” somewhat challenging.
But not impossible.
In today’s day and age, we have so much technology in place to allow us communication with those dear to us. My siblings and I have fairly regular Google Hangouts. My little sister is in Montreal and my little brother is in Texas. That’s a pretty decent distance separating us, and yet we get to see each other and joke around and bond as siblings might. And then there’s Skype, which I use to call my mother in Thailand. The PJ Mommy still has her camera set to one side so she stares at the monitor image of me and I get to see the side of her head, but that’s okay because I get to laugh and talk with her…and see her. Even if it’s the side of her head. I not only use Skype and Google Hangouts with my boyfriend, but I also play online games with him like StarCraft 2 and League of Legends. Before his deployment, we used to schedule gaming dates, and we will again on his return.
Kaitlyn and Rygard’s long distance relationship is doable with the aid of advanced communications technology and kept between the two of them with the encryption help of a certain tech-friend back on Dysnomia Station. In fact, for them, the distance might have made their relationship that much stronger.
Book two of The Triton Experiment
Intergalactic mercenary Kat Darah has been ordered to keep her shape-shifting ability a secret from everyone but those closest to her, for her own safety. She’s learned how to control the feral rage…for the most part. But when Lieutenant Rygard’s military unit goes missing, she’ll use every skill she has to find her man.
Lt. Christopher Rygard has witnessed his girl shift, and he still wants her. After Kat rescues him from alien clutches, he’d like nothing more than to wrap her in his arms again, but his first duty is to his men. And half of them have been shipped off-planet to be sold as slaves.
Kat and Rygard will need to form a new team to go deep undercover, posing as gladiators and learning to fight together in order to survive. In the arena, it’s all about who is the strongest predator…
