Nice Review!


This was fun to find posted on The Binding:

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every minute of reading!

Chose first book out of curiosity, the second out of being absorbed into the characters and the third to find out what happened to them all! Can see openings for even more in the series!

Star Dog by Laurie A Green

I was very happy to have Courting Disaster: StarDog 2 included in this collection, giving three returning characters from my Inherited Stars Series their own adventure in a new book. The StarPup from my original story, StarDog, teams up with Captain Jagger and Ketsia Tayah from the novel Inherit the Stars to discover life after Operation Reset is anything but a happily ever after. Trouble is amiss in the galaxy once more, and they’re about to fly head-on into a dangerous new menace.

If you missed StarDog in the original Pets in Space, I’m offering a free copy via Instafreebie so you can experience all the adventure, intrigue and romance of the prequel. Grab your copy here:
