Winter in Paradise by T. C. Archer Eotic Sci-fi

Science fiction has long been intermingled with horror. Who doesn't remember Frankenstein, The Tommyknockers, or Who Goes There? But monstrous creatures aren't necessary to make a science fiction story horror. A dark tone is what takes horror to the next--real--level.


Winter in Paradise is an erotic sci-fi story with a twist of horror. The possible loss of the man Major Kelly Andres loves forces her to face a reality devoid of warmth. A vision that comes all too easily on a subtropical planet that's been turned to ice by the planet's taskmasters.
 

Opening--

Major Kelly Andres woke from the nightmare, unable and unwilling to move. The feeling of depression and aloneness lingered like an Uldaran Howler bug waiting in the shadows of the cave to feed upon her carcass. In the dream, she was cold, freezing cold. Her fingers and toes where dead and black. Frost sparkled on her skin. Purple bruising and dead flesh spread from the frostbitten digits up her hands and feet to her wrist and ankles. She had felt no pain, only dead lifeless stumps that made her certain her hands and feet would be amputated—the kind of certainty with which a person knows their name, rank, and serial number. She was always cold and alone in the dream. So very alone.

She shivered despite the thick furs that cocooned her in warmth. The nightmare always left her hollow with the conviction she would spend her life with no hands or feet, deformed and unloved. She remained unmoving, sorting through her emotions. It was only a dream.  


Blurb--


On a planet turned to ice, a warm heart is worth dying for. 

When Major Kelly Andres awakens to find Major Byron Grayson gone from the cave that has been their military base the last five months, she realizes he has disobeyed her orders. He’s gone to activate the quantum disruptor that he hopes will draw enemy fire, enabling the Provisional Army to attack the enemy armada. It’s a suicide mission. And Grayson knows it.

Kelly has no intention of letting Grayson die alone in the frozen wasteland that planet Onyx has become since the war began. She’s determined to find him and bring him back to base, because when they die, she wants him in her bed.

I like the combination of science-fiction with horror. I have read from both genres but never in one story. It sounds interesting.
