Hi Coffee Time Romance Readers! I’m Stephanie, aka S.J. Pajonas. For those who don’t know me, I write Japan-inspired Scifi Romance and Contemporary Romance (usually with an Asian twist). REUNITED, Book 3 of the Nogiku Series, just came out, and I’m excited to share it with you today. This is the third book in a four book series, so if you’re looking for a new world to get lost in, come check out Sanaa and Jiro.
Here are some early reviews of REUNITED:
“Although the entire series is a recommended read, book 3 was exceptional, and I am waiting on pins and needles for book 4!”
“My favorite of the series so far! The plot of this book was crazy. There was intrigue, exploration, adaptation to a new world, friendship, and romance.”
“There is little in REUNITED that was expected (and yes I spent time speculating given the way the second book ends) but that is not a complaint. Pajonas is an excellent storyteller and I cannot wait to see how this series wraps up!”
YÅ«sei has surprises for Sanaa Itami. The long trip across the stars ends with Mark Sakai delivering bad news from orbit over their new home, and thereâ€™s no turning back or moving on. Despite all their misgivings, this is where they will have to stay.
Sanaa, Jiro, and the rest of Earthâ€™s settlers move into a coastal town and stick to their plans to live the colonization life they dreamed of. But Sanaaâ€™s existence wonâ€™t be kept secret from her enemies for long. Kazuo promised he would see her in another life, on another world, and he aims to keep his word. Now she will face those who want their revenge and make new enemies while dispensing with old ones on her journey across the fascinating and unfamiliar landscape of YÅ«sei.
REUNITED, Book THREE of the Nogiku Series, is the third book in a captivating post-apocalyptic romance series that harnesses the cultures and traditions of Japan and sweeps them into the future between Earth and a faraway land.
My alarm chimes at 07:30, and I roll over in an empty bed to turn it off. Yesterday, I proposed plans for an electronic warning fence around the perimeter of our town, plans that took me several days and very late nights to put together. I was exhausted in the evening, and I donâ€™t remember falling asleep in bed.
Jiro takes me outside every night to sit under the stars, to watch them climb the night sky, and just be alone together. The first time he pulled me out to the garden was breathtaking. The two moons were above us and the entire estate was bathed in a glow that made everything fuzzy around the edges. Both moons are similar to Earthâ€™s moon, but the major moon is almost twice the size. The minor moon sits low on the horizon, a little brother off to the south of its larger brother, a huge crater punched into the center of its equator. After sunset, they are a wash of blood reds and fiery ocher, slowly fading to pure white as they climb higher in the sky.
Jiro and I chat about our days, I fold my fingers in the space between his, and lay my ear against his chest to listen to his heart. I am savoring every moment of my life, afraid my existence will be cut short along the length of my enemyâ€™s sword. Lying with Jiro each night under the stars is the only time I feel safe and alive. I often fall asleep on him, and he carries me in to bed when he canâ€™t rouse me.
The warm bed threatens to pull me back to sleep. I donâ€™t want to get up. Getting out of bed means I have to get dressed, have to eat breakfast and begin a day filled with fear, deceit, and uncertainty while my friends build their new lives and never give two thoughts to who else shares this planet with us.
