Terran One: To Aid A Rebellion Excerpt (Exciting) Formatting is screwy with blogspot and I'm not fixing it...

The elevator that Tere, Cal, Oln and the commandos were on stopped on the bridge. Tere looked out the main viewer. Andahar was in the distance.
“Tere, Saadark is one hour from the planet. Soran is thirty minutes out and Ceshien is already landing troops on the surface. They want cover,” Adam said.
“Mikhail, I want you to take out the parliament building as soon as we’re in position. After the parliament building is gone, take out the palace. We want to hit them where it hurts,” Tere commanded. “Commando leaders, this is what we’ve been training for. We’ll be on the ground. Adam, get Ceshien’s position on the ground and get that out through covert means to Saadark and Soran. We want everyone down as soon as they get here. Ciohar, Terran and the Terran One fighters are space coverage. I want them to take strategic positions. Tell Terran that we want their fighters to join our fighters.”
“Tere, we’re now in position to take out the parliament building,” Mikhail said.
“Get a display of the surface up,” Tere commanded. “Oln, make sure that Ten 07 knows that we’re taking out the parliament building.”
“Roger that, Tere,” Oln replied. He coded the information through the private channel to the assassin cyborg.
“Tere, we have communications from Andahar,” Cameron said.
“Patch it through,” Tere commanded. The lead commandos and Cal watched as the transmission came through. Tere knew the face well.
“This is Aneit Ladp of Andahar. We’d like to know why you’ve come into the Andahar sector. If you do not remove your starship, we will consider it an act of war,” Andahar’s leader said.
“This is the Terran warrior princess, Tere, Princess of Emanai. You have what is mine and I want them back,” Tere demanded. “I consider that an act of war. If you do not free them within five minutes, we’ll blow up key strategic locations.”
“I can assure you that we don’t have anything that would belong to Terran, warrior princess,” Ladp said.
“We have tracers in them, Ladp. Your time is now four minutes,” Tere said. She turned off the image viewer. “Mik, get your fighters into space,” she commanded over the com.
“Roger that, Tere,” Mik replied. Tere watched the fighter bay from the viewer. The image viewer turned on.
“I assure you, warrior princess, that we have nothing of yours,” Ladp said.
“Ladp, you now have two minutes,” Tere said. She had the cyborg turn off the viewer.
“Tere, we have word from Ten 07. He’s looking for Alaric, Alnon and Iylus,” Oln said.
“Do we have a position on Ceshien’s ground forces?” Tere asked.
“Roger that,” Cameron replied. “They’re on the ground. They have a special ops company heading toward the parliament building.”
“Tell them to keep their distance,” Tere said. Cameron relayed the message and received an affirmative back. “Okay, Mikhail, blow the damned parliament building. After that, take out the palace,” she commanded.
“Roger that,” Mikhail said.
“TJ, we’re heading down now. Let’s move out,” Tere ordered. She put her helmet on and turned to watch as Mikhail gave the signal to blow up the parliament building. Tere saw the massive explosion. Mikhail gave the order to take out the palace. The lead commandos headed to hangar four.

“This is war, TJ,” Tere said. “I want the shielding on at all times. Gentlemen, check your weapons. We know that they’re underground and I know where Ten 07 will take them. We have to believe that we have the Andahars on the move. TJ the drop is 622.378.”
“Roger that, Tere,” TJ said.
Tere opened a digital map of Andahar. She pointed to the drop position. “There are two entrances to these underground tunnels. This is where Ten 07 will take them when he finds them. I want Gar’s team to go in on the east side. Ben’s team which includes me is going in from the west. Take out anyone that gets in the way. Gentlemen, let’s get Alaric, Alnon and Iylus the hell out of there,” she said. “Kras, open the airlock.” Tere watched out the cockpit window as the hangar airlock opened. “Take us down, TJ,” she said.
TJ flew the viper out of the hangar bay as the Terran starships arrived. Ciohar’s, Soran’s and Saadark’s starships were in the distance. They were much smaller than the Terran One but they were capable. Tere watched Ciohar’s fighters leave their hangar bays. The Soran and Saadark transports, with their ground forces, left their starships at the same time that Viper 12 left.
“We leave the war to Saadark, Ceshien and Soran, Gentlemen. We are on a rescue mission. We bring them out alive. Kill anyone you have to,” Tere commanded. Sev realized, for the first time in their marriage, that Tere was an elite commando.

Terran One: To Aid A Rebellion Excerpt (Teary) Formatting is screwy with blogspot and I'm not fixing it.

Sev looked at Tere when she got off the com. He was rocking Theo.
“Ciohar wants their engineers to head back today so we’re going to meet with them, Sev,” Tere said quietly so she wouldn’t wake Theo. “I don’t want to miss Alaric when he contacts us so tell him that it shouldn’t take more than an hour for the meeting.” Tere kissed Sev and Theo before she left the suite.
Sev took the baby into the nursery and put him down in the crib. He went to Alaric’s desk and opened the middle drawer. He had no idea why he was curious about the palace recordings. He put a chip in the viewer and read the date. The recording covered the six months after he had first rites with Tere. He turned the image viewer on and did a search for Tere Andrews. He opened the first recording. Tere and Alaric were together and were talking quietly in the palace library. Tere had tears in her eyes. Sev turned the volume up.
“Beautiful, he’s happy that you’re here,” Alaric said. He took Tere’s hand.
“I have nanos, Alaric. He won’t take them,” Tere replied. “Why won’t he take them?”
“He’s been the happiest that I’ve ever seen him these past four years. You gave him something to live for,” Alaric said. “Tere, the doctor doesn’t think that he’s going to live through the night.”
Tere nodded. “I want to be with him, Alaric. He’s given me so much,” she replied. Alaric kissed her cheek.
“Come on, beautiful. Let’s go and be with him,” Alaric said. He took Tere’s hand.

Sev fast forwarded. Alaric and Tere were in Theodopholis Adron’s room. Sev recognized it. It was the first grand suite. Alaric was sitting in a chair next to the bed. Tere was sitting on the edge of the bed. She took the Terran world leader’s hand. Theodopholis Adron smiled up at her.
“Don’t cry, Princess. You’ve been a light in my life for the past four years,” Theodopholis said in a coarse whisper. “Please take care of Alaric when I’m gone. He’s going to need you.”
“I need you, Theo. Damn,” Tere said crying. “You’ve been so good to me. Please don’t go.”
“You’ve been a daughter to me. You should be married to Alaric. He’s too good to be married to that woman that he’s married to. I never should have told him to marry her,” Theodopholis said. He coughed a deep, hacking cough. Tere took a cloth and wiped his mouth. “Promise me, Princess, that you won’t leave my son alone. He’s going to need you.”
“I promise, Theo,” Tere said. “I’ll take care of him.” She looked over at Alaric. He had tears in his eyes. Tere wiped the tears out of her eyes.
The doctor walked over and checked the world leader. “He’s just sleeping now. You should get some rest,” he said.
Tere shook her head no. “I’m staying with him. He needs me,” she replied quietly. The doctor nodded. Alaric walked him to the door. Tere continued to hold Theodopholis’ hand while he slept.
After several minutes, Alaric walked back into the room and sat on the edge of the bed. “Tere, you need to get some rest,” he said.
Tere smiled. “I’m staying. He’d stay with me,” she said. “He wouldn’t let me be alone and I won’t let him be alone.”
“Sam said that my father asked her for nanos for me,” Alaric said. “I told her that won’t be necessary. I know that you’re in love with Sev Kensington.”
“I’m in love with you, Alaric. You know who I am. You know that I can be in love with both of you,” Tere said. She cleared her throat. “When is Jal coming back? I’m sure that she’ll be here once the funeral is over. Why did you marry her?”
“I couldn’t have you, Tere. She’ll never have my heart. My heart belongs to you,” Alaric said. Tere looked at Alaric and smiled a sad smile.
“I don’t want him to leave me,” Tere said crying. “He’s like a father to me.”
“I know, Princess,” Alaric said. He took Tere’s hand and kissed it.

Sev forwarded through the recording. He had no idea that Alaric meant so much to Tere. He wiped the tears out of his eyes. He should have been there for them. He wasn’t even talking to Tere and didn’t answer her messages. He was too damned stubborn to realize what he had but Alaric knew. Alaric wanted Tere and Sev had no doubt that if Tere had never met him, Alaric would have been the married to her first. Sev watched more of the recording. The doctor was in the room again.
“He doesn’t have long. He’ll probably drift in and out of consciousness before it happens,” the doctor told Alaric. Alaric nodded. The doctor left the room.
“He gave me so much, Alaric,” Tere said. “He treated me like a princess. My father never treated me like that.”
“I know,” Alaric said. He sat on the bed behind Tere and held her. Tere put her head on Alaric’s shoulder. “I love you, Tere. My father always wanted us to be married. He regretted telling me that I should marry Jal.”
Tere touched Alaric’s face. “We can’t change that now,” she replied. Theodopholis called out for her. “I’m here Theo,” she said. She kissed Theodopholis’ forehead.
“Take care of my son. He needs you,” Theodopholis said. Tere took the world leader’s hand and nodded. “Promise me, Princess. Promise me that you’ll take him back to Emanai with you.”
“I promise, Theo,” Tere replied through her tears. “I’ll take him to Emanai but he needs to leave Jal here.” Theodopholis laughed and coughed. Tere smiled.
“I’ll be watching over you and Alaric,” Theodopholis whispered. “Tell Alaric. Tell Alaric that I can see his mother. She’s here for me. I think that I’ll be leaving now. Tell him goodbye for me, Princess. Tell him that he’ll never know how much I love him. I was tough on him but he’s turned into a fine man and will make a wonderful leader for Terran. Tell him that, Princess.”
“I will, Theo,” Tere said. She couldn’t hold back the tears.
“Don’t cry for me, Princess. You’ve given me a daughter. You’re the daughter that I always should have had. Thank you for your love for me and my son,” Theodopholis whispered.

Sev watched the world leader’s hand drop from Tere’s hand. Tere put her head down on Theodopholis and wept, deep heart wrenching sobs. She’d only cried like that twice before. When he was injured and almost died and when he brutalized her. He was angry that he wasn’t there for her and for his best friend. Alaric put his head on Tere’s back and wept with her.
“Damn it to hell,” Sev cursed. He wiped the tears out of his eyes. He listened for Theo. The baby was still sleeping. He forwarded through the recording. He stopped when he saw Tere in bed in the second grand suite. She was crying softly. The door opened and Alaric walked in. He was in his sleep pants on and no shirt. Tere looked up at Alaric and held her hand out to him. Alaric laid down next to Tere and held her until she fell asleep. Sev turned off the viewer. He didn’t know and she didn’t tell him. He put the chip back into the desk when he heard the suite door open. Tere walked into the bedroom.

Terran One: To Aid A Rebellion Excerpt (Be prepared with tissues)

Tere nodded and headed in to change. She dropped the curtain. Sev followed her. ST, Ashan and Oln went to join their wives for a nap. Tere took one of the dresses that Meid gave her into the bathroom and changed into it. When she walked out of the bathroom, Sev was listening quietly to Alaric’s conversation with Rhina. Rhina laughed when Alaric told her about getting wet when Tere splashed him with the land jet.
“Sam told me that Tere’s nanos should keep me alive long enough for the baby to be born at full term. I don’t want you to come back, dearest. I’m fine and I’m happy that you’re enjoying your trip. Ian and Tani are taking good care of me, as if I was their daughter,” Rhina said. “Alaric, I asked Cal about doing a swearing off. He told me that none of you would want that and that Tere would not be happy. I’m so sorry that I’m leaving you and the baby but I know that Tere and Sev will take good care of both of you.” Tere and Sev heard Rhina sniffle. “Sam will tell you if you need to come back. Please, enjoy your trip. I will always love you, Alaric. I’m so happy to have you in my life. Tere was right. You are very special.”
Tere sat on Sev’s lap, put her head on his shoulder and listened quietly.
“I love you, Rhina,” Alaric said.
“I know, Alaric,” Rhina replied. “Tere and Sev will make a good family for you and baby Theo. I know that Tere loves you deeply. She always has and Sev loves you closer than a brother. Never forget how deeply I care about you and I’ll always watch over you. Dearest, you know that death is a new beginning, not an end. I’m anxious to see my parents again and to meet Theodopholis. I dreamed about the ancient warrior princess. She came to me and told me that my journey would be an easy one and that there will be no pain. She told me that when the warrior princesses choose to leave this world, they have no pain and has blessed me with that.” Rhina cried. Tears fell down Tere’s cheeks. She didn’t bother to wipe them. She closed her eyes and listened. “I told Sam that she needs to keep me on life support until the baby can be born.”
Alaric spoke gently to his wife. “I don’t want a swearing off,” he said.
“I know that you're in love with Tere but I’m thankful to have you in my life. You’ve made these last few months full of love and happiness,” Rhina said. “I’m happy that I’m joining Arisable and the ancient warrior princesses, but I’m sad that I have to leave you and my son. I’m happy that Arisable accepted you because you need a wife and Tere is the only woman that I want you with even if you have to share with Sev,” she said. She laughed. Tere and Sev couldn’t hear what Alaric said. Tere kissed Sev and put her arm around his neck. “Don’t worry about me, dearest. I’m at peace. Ian and Tani are treating me with love and kindness as are Sien and Cal. Sien is spending most of her time here and Cal is over often.” She laughed again. “I think that Cal spends most of his time here because Ian’s here but they have all been very good to me. Continue with the negotiations. It’s important for the Terran people and for the good of everyone in the system. Don’t cry for me, dearest,” Rhina said. “I wasn’t meant to live a mortal life forever but it was always meant for you. You were always meant to be married to Tere even if she was stubborn. I had a dream right after I got pregnant. I didn’t tell you about it because I didn’t want you to worry. I know you and Tere well. Please don’t be sad for me and take care of Tere. She is going to need you. I’ll talk to you soon, my love.” Sev wiped the tears from Tere’s eyes.
Alaric turned off the viewer and walked into Tere and Sev’s room. “Damn,” he said, “she wouldn’t abort the baby. I knew that she was sick when I met her. She told me that she knew that I was in love with you, Tere, but that she wanted whatever time she had left to be filled with as much happiness as you have with Sev. When she told me that she loved me, she said she didn’t mind that I didn’t love her. I told her that I did love her. She smiled happily and hugged me tightly. Nothing was hidden. We were prepared for this from the day I met her but I didn’t know it would be this hard. Ian told me that Sam doesn’t think she’ll make it until we get back. She’s getting weaker every day but Sam says that they can keep her on life support in the medical bay until the baby can be born safely.”
“Alaric,” Sev asked, “Do you want to go back. Everyone would understand.”
Alaric smiled at them. “Rhina wouldn’t understand. She says that I’m supposed to use this time to become the true prince. I don’t think she wants any of us there when it happens. She told me that I’m not to go into the medical bay if she goes on life support and that Sam will bring the baby to us,” he said quietly.

Terran One:Remember The Commandos Synopsis

Copyright 2010 Terriel

Terran One: Remember the Commandos is an erotically charged science fiction romance, the first novel in the Terran One trilogy. Tere Andrews, a mercenary from the capital province of Mandmer on the planet Terran, Calvin Andrews, fellow Terran mercenary and Tere’s partner, and Oln Davis, an ex Allied Federation of Planets commando, set out to bring the last thirteen AFP commandos back to Terran as a last request of the late planetary leader, Theodopholis Adron.

Severin Kensington, one of the AFP’s four Kensington commandos, had been torn between his duty to the AFP military and his love for Tere. They had only seen each other twice in the four years they had known each other. For Tere it was love at first sight. For Sev, it was a raw need, an unfulfilled desire that he put aside for the good of the brotherhood. They are brought together again in Bans on the planet Teris. Tere has given up hope of ever marrying Sev and has decided to marry someone else. When she takes him to the Terran One, their relationship is taken to another level. Sev marries her through the Terran Miktuk and their lives will never be the same again.

Join Tere and Sev on their journey through life together. Tere’s hidden secrets come out when the tough, gritty commando discovers who she really is. Terran One: Remember the Commandos has graphic realism, eroticism and brutality. Readers will laugh and cry as the characters come to life in their minds. They will become members of the Terran One crew. The residents of the captains’ zone will become their family.

Meet the other Kensington wives: Meeg is from Hans on the planet Haadia. She is married to Jasper Kensington. She has a witty sense of humor that endears everyone around her. Sam is the Terran One doctor and wife of Ben Kensington. She is a beautiful blond from Bans on the planet Teris. She has been on the Terran One since it was created. Saram, a shy sweet woman from the planet Soran, is the wife of Jackson ‘JS’ Kensington. Saram blooms in the midst of the Kensington wives' friendship. Together the women learn that sisterhood is thicker than blood.

Terran One: Remember the Commandos will take readers on a journey that they will never forget.
