Hell Squad: Hemi Cover Reveal
Release Date: May 30th

Science Fiction Romance Cover


Excerpt from Hell Squad: Theron featuring Hemi

Hemi Rahia fired his carbine, his focus on taking down the aliens.

Fucking Gizzida. The bastards had invaded the world, and killed and destroyed millions. He had zero issues mowing them down.

He yanked a grenade off his belt and lobbed it into a group of approaching raptors. He grinned. As flames erupted, his squad fanned out around him, firing at the aliens.

They were the toughest sons of bitches he’d ever fought with, and he was proud to stand with them.

“Think I’m going to have this year’s quota for the most kills,” Levi called out. The former biker, aimed his carbine, taking down two raptors in quick succession.

Hemi snorted and yanked his shotgun off his back. “You wish, King.” A raptor charged at Hemi with a roar, and Hemi pumped the weapon, then shot the alien in the gut.

“Incoming!” Tane yelled.

A raptor grenade bounced between them—an ugly, black device covered in spikes. Hemi and his squad mates dived out of the way.

He hit the ground and rolled, just as flames exploded behind him. He came to his feet and realized he’d been separated from the other guys.

Several raptors were moving in to surround him.

He pumped the shotgun. “Bring it on, assholes.” He shot the nearest raptor, the boom echoing around him.

A huge-ass creeper skittered closer and let out a screech. Damn thing was so ugly. He pumped the shotgun again.

Suddenly, laser fire sprayed the beast, cutting it down.

Hemi looked up and saw the Darkswift shoot past.

“Looked like you needed some help.” The smug female voice came through his earpiece.

“Baby, I was doing just fine, but I know you can’t stay away from me.”

He easily pictured Cam’s long, lean body settled in the Darkswift, and he easily pictured her nose scrunching from his comment. He waited for her snarky response.

A half snort, half laugh crossed the comm line and he realized Cam’s partner, Taylor, was on the line as well.

“Keep dreaming, Rahia.” Cam’s tone was sharp.

Ah, there it was. It was really sick, he knew, but he loved when she tossed that attitude his way.

He paused to shoot another raptor, and headed back toward his squad. “I’ve got plenty of dreams, Cam.” He lowered his voice. “And you star in all of them.” And it was about damn time she quit running and he made them more than just dreams.

A humming silence.

He grinned. Yeah, he loved poking at her and seeing her flares of passion and temper.

“Rahia, if you think—”

He cut her off. “It’s New Year’s Eve soon.” He kicked a dying raptor out of his way. “There’s a big party planned and at the stroke of twelve, I’ll find you.”

“Oh?” A slow, unconcerned drawl.

“The kiss at midnight is all mine.” You’re all mine. It was a promise.

“Keep dreaming, Rahia,” she snapped.

As more raptors converged, he swung his weapon around. Oh, he would. And he had every intention of making his dreams come true.

I am also squeeing with excitement to announce that the first two books of Galactic Gladiators are now available as audiobooks. The oh-so-brilliant narrator, Vivienne Leheny, has done an amazing job with not just the voices of the characters but also giving us the emotion of the series. Come take a listen to the alien world of Carthago.

      So, so happy to hear that, Sally. One of the reasons I write is in the hope that it helps my readers escape the real life stuff for a little while, and if my stories help people through tough times in any way, I am so incredibly happy. Stay tuned for more berserkers!

  57. Shannon Ferguson says

    I love, love, love this cover!! Hemi looks sooo sexy with all those gorgeous tats! Of course I can’t wait to read the book too… I already know it’s going to be great!

  58. Nice cover!! But then, I’ve never found one I didn’t appreciate. I’m back to Shaw for a couple days, waiting for 5/30.

  59. Omg omg omg!!! I don’t think I could wait 2 weeks!!! Good thing I’m on the launch team or I’d be quite upset I think. Lol. Congrats Anna on what I’d guess will be another awesome book!!! ?

  60. Oooh yes!!! Can’t wait for Hemi! Thank you for this bonus!

  61. dawn dohey says

    Hemmmmiiiii!!!! I love the cover ,now only to see a front view.

  62. I love the cover ! I think that it is very unique !

  63. Shannah Johnson says

    I absolutely love this series! The thought process behind it is amazing! I cant wait to read more and see Hemi and Cam together. This cover may be the hottest one yet (although I may just be biased on the beard and tattoos part). Hemi’s maori styled tattoos remind me of the ‘kraken’ they discovered. Either way this cover and series is hot.

    • Anna Hackett says

      Thanks so much, Shannah!! I think Hemi’s cover is pretty hot 🙂 So glad you are a Hell Squad fan <3

  64. I think this is my favourite cover yet – that bod and those tattoos! Sigh … can’t wait to read this one

  65. Loved every book in this series. I think all the covers look cool!

  66. Shawn Sumrall says

    That cover is all kind of gorgeous and I can’t wait to read it!

  67. terri knight says

    Awesome give away as always and love Hell Squad they rock 🙂 Can’t wait to read more!!!

  68. Lizabeth says

    Can’t wait to read Hemi’s story. Love every book in this series (as well as every one of your other series). Each one is a must buy. Keep up the great writing!!

    • Anna Hackett says

      Thank you so much, Lizabeth! I am so fortunate to have wonderful readers like you who love Hell Squad 🙂

  69. I love the cover! I am not, however, to keen on the full beard he has going on though. 5 o`clock shadow? heck ya! But not a full beard. Never the less, he is still hot, and I love the tattoos. The rest of the cover is great too of course ;b

    • Huh, I guess this thing is keyed into a different time zone, because it was 10:12 when I first posted, so I am not yet in the 20th…Hope I still qualify.

  70. Amy Bosinske says

    Yaaayyyy!!! Hemi is finally here (almost)! Can’t wait to read his and Cam’s story. The short story featuring Marcus and Elle was sweet. A reminder to take time for each other no matter what crazy is going on. Thank you Anna!

    • Anna Hackett says

      Thanks, Amy! I am so excited to share Hemi and Cam with everyone. And so glad you enjoyed a glimpse of Marcus and Elle 🙂

  71. Sheri Cordell says

    What an amazing cover…gorgeous ink, sexy backside, and with that dark beard I am imagining Hemi has piercing, blue eyes…YUMMY!!! You really have outdone yourself with this cover Anna. It would make a fantastic poster that I could *drool* over all day & night. Lord, it just got warm in here…LOL!! I am sooo looking forward to reading this story.
