For months, Mace Simms has been seeking an antidote for the poison killing her mentor. Her only hope is Alec Roiten, a brilliant scientist hiding on a backwater planet. Posing as a research assistant, Mace offers the elusive genius all the help she can, ignoring the explosive chemistry between them. Soon they’re close to a cure.

But then Alec’s former love Byron shows up, attempting to claim a bounty on Alec’s head, and all that careful research gets left behind when they’re forced to flee. And when Byron realizes the tip-off about Alec was a ruse by his rivals to lure him out into the open to kill him, the bounty hunt turns into a three-person scramble for survival.

Byron wants his old lover back, Alec is consumed by a haunting secret about the poison he’s desperate to defeat, and Mace is caught between them. But she’s beginning to think that’s exactly where she belongs as the three are drawn together in their race against death.

The Middle Book

Thank you for having me here today! Let me introduce myself. I’m Christine d’Abo and I’m an author and lover of erotic romance. I’ve been writing seriously for ten years and have been published for the last eight of those. I love video games, superheroes, and anything that will mess with your mind. I’m also a secret ninja, but I’m unable to discuss those matters. Shhh…

When I was writing No Remedy, I was very much concerned about what I think is generally known as “middle book syndrome”. You know what I mean. Book one rocked! Book three, amazing! Book two….well it was there. I had to be sure that the story I wanted to tell could not only stand on its own, but added depth to the universe that I was playing in.

In No Remedy, I wanted to ask the question, how far would someone go for someone that they loved. Mace is desperate to find a cure and save the man who she looks up to as an older brother. Leaving her family and friends behind, she embarks on an epic journey that will force her to lie and manipulate her way to her answer.

But Mace’s journey had to fit into the bigger picture of the universe while still standing on its own. As a writer I had to be sure to find that balance, and still keep things fun. I think both Alec and Byron helped with that part.

As a reader, how do you feel about the middle book in a trilogy? Love them? Hate them? What are some of your favorites?

  1. Thank you for sharing. As for the middle books in trilogy. I’m a bit mixed on it. Sometimes they can be great sometimes not so.

  2. I suppose it depends on the book and the trilogy! I’m looking forward to reading this one. violet817(at)aol(dot)com

  3. I actually don’t notice a ‘middle book syndrome’ but I do like to have all of the books in a series present before I start my binge because it irks me to have to re-read the prior stories when it takes so long for the next one to come out that I have forgotten the overall story arc! Thanks for the thoughtful post.
