Dante knows the price of rebellion. The Grid created him in its likeness, turning him into a killing machine—tested, modified and enhanced to be a “better citizen”. Years may have passed since he escaped that freak show, but the scars are still fresh.

Without the mandatory implant, Steel scrapes by, living free of the Grid’s control. When a job goes bad, everyone around her dies, their minds crushed by the notorious Cardinal. But he doesn’t kill her. He takes her to a secret lair filled with fascinating, forbidden pre-Grid knowledge. Who is this man—ruthless murderer or eccentric loner?

Bad-mannered as she is, Dante can’t bring himself to silence the abrasive, cigarette-addicted Steel. Something about her calls to him, though trusting her could be a mistake. Should she betray him, it would wipe out years of patient waiting. Waiting while the Grid hunts him for the priceless information he carries within his living data vault. Waiting while his dish of revenge turns ice cold.

For Dante intends to go back. And this time, he intends to be the only one left standing.

Light speed isn’t fast enough to outrun the heart.

Metal Reign by Nathalie Gray
Francine knows her one chance to destroy a critical Imber fuel supply is a suicide mission, but better death than living like a rat under the enemy’s thumb. John may be only the ship’s cook, but he’s not letting his best friend go alone. Now’s a hell of a time to discover he loves her, but there’s no turning back.

The Mythmakers by Robert Appleton
Steffi and her crew of smugglers are so weary just surviving, it’s tough to get excited about one more crippled ship, even though it’s the salvage prize of a lifetime.
Until they discover it holds the last of Earth’s mythical creatures. Including the extraordinarily beautiful and uninhibited Arne. But the enemy is closing in, and Steffi must choose: cut and run, or tow the precious ship to safety.

Hearts and Minds by J.C. Hay
It was a simple smash-and-grab job. But the client failed to mention that Syna’s the diversion for an assassination attempt that leaves her with a sexy, telepathic passenger.
Inexorably, Syna is dragged into a war that isn’t hers, and discovers—between knock-down-drag-outs—that she and Galen are a whole, far stronger than the sum of their parts.

The invaders thought they had crushed humanity. They messed with the wrong species.

Francine Beaumont is tired. Tired of waiting for an armada of Imber ships to finish off what’s left of humanity. Tired of fear and privation. Tired of living like a rat, feeding off what scraps the cat lets her have.

When the chance comes to hit the Imbers where it really hurts—right at their fuel supply—she takes it. One stealth cruiser. One pilot. A cargo hold filled with explosives. A suicide mission for sure, but better that than doing nothing.

As the ship’s cook, John O’Shaughnessy knows everything that goes on aboard the warship. And something is definitely up with his Frankie. If she thinks he’s going to let her carry out this crazy plan of hers alone, that stubborn woman has another think coming.

Frankie thinks she’s gotten away clean…until her instincts tell her she’s not alone on her mission. Still, it’s a shock to find her peace-loving John standing there with eyes that spell murder. Now is a hell of a time to discover they’re more than friends. But there’s no turning back…

A woman bound to secrecy. A man bound to protect her.

Azalea’s canvas is the human body. Her brushes—the colorful silk scarves and ancient ways passed down from a long line of Shibari masters. She has bound the rich and powerful, the beautiful and talented. But she has yet to find the one person worthy to trust with her age-old secrets.

Now a serial killer is imitating her unique style, leaving a trail of death across Tokyo. She knows she is in danger, but to reveal her alibi to the grave-eyed investigator would mean doing the unthinkable—breaking her clients’ confidence.

In all his years on the force, Keveri Newman has never seen murder victims posed as lovers, limbs bound in exceedingly rare silk. Down to the last knot, the evidence points to only one suspect: Azalea. A woman who redefines elegance and mystery, who asks the impossible—for him to trust her.

Azalea is drawn to the plain-spoken, cynical detective with hands as wickedly skillful as her own. A third murder inextricably ties them to a single purpose, because that night, she wasn’t alone. She was with Kev. And the killer knows the only way to get to her is to separate her from the one man who can protect her…

Lycan Warriors, Book Four

Brioni believes there is good in everyone. Even the mysterious new lycan who joins Earth’s organized resistance. He does not mingle with the others, kills without passion and never, ever takes his goggles off.

One night, she happens on him secretly playing the ocarina. The haunting music calls to her, as does Haruto’s loneliness. For once, when she reaches out, he does not respond with his trademark smirk or disappear. And as she shares herself with him, Brioni learns just how wicked a lycan’s touch can be and how a mere lick can unleash a fire she had not known possible. His flesh brands hers, his mouth sears a decadent trail on her skin. Pure sensualization. Until all hell breaks loose.

Haruto never cared about consequences, to himself or others. Until now. He would do anything to shield his precious “Goth Fairy” from harm. He would kill for her. Or die. And the enemy knows.

Description: Deep space is no place to spend the holiday season, but freighter captain Maxine Fields has no choice. She has to make a special delivery, the kind that pays as much for her silent discretion as for her on-time delivery record.

So with nobody but the penguins on her favorite flannel pajamas to keep her company, she sets a course, pours a mug of eggnog, and contemplates what’s left of the ragged tinsel tree taped to her console. If only Santa would leave a little gift under that tree. No, a big gift — a tall, rugged, ready-for-action gift. One who would heat up the holiday and show her just what kind of stocking stuffer a naughty girl should get.

When Max responds to a distress beacon, she gets her holiday wish, and then some. Edmond Cabanesty might just be at the top of Santa’s naughty list. With growing dread, she reads the crimes etched into the side of his exile pod. Defection. Genocide. Murder. Oh, Santa, whatever will you deliver next…?

To My Readers: This story of Max and Eddy made me wiggle in my seat, clench my teeth, ball my fists and curse at the computer screen…then it made me sigh in contentment. I hope it does all that for you too!

He’s the worst of the bad, the deadliest weapon of them all, except to her…then he’s the gentlest teddy bear.

Liberty was the first member on the lycanthrope team of soldiers-for-hire. Her specialty is technology. She’s seen every member join, some of them to stay, others to leave — permanently. One colleague has always managed to make her lose her legendary cool. Unlike her, Cupcake hails from a humble background, hasn’t a credit to his name and lets people think he’s just a mountain of muscle, all brawn and no brain. Liberty knows better and has lusted after the quiet, towering lycan with the serious eyes for years, silently wishing he’d just make his move. But he hasn’t so far, even if there are days she swears there’s a bit of fire in his pale eyes, a hint of longing in the way he glances at her when he thinks she’s not looking.

Femme Metal, Book Three

Two species on the brink of war. Two warriors pitted against each other. Who will blink first?

Everyone knows Yithian bounty hunters never let go once they set their sights on a prey, never let emotions interfere with their predatory instincts, never, ever lose their legendary focus. One hunt, one symbol, one tattoo. Unyielding, unrelenting, deadly accurate. Everyone knows that. Yet Setesh, the most successful bounty hunter on his home world and vicious even by his own species’ standards, will break every one of his rules. He will lose sight of a prey, let his emotions cloud his judgment and even lower his guard for just this one time. All for a human. One he’s come to love. The only problem is that Carmela is a warrior too, and everyone knows humans may be small and unpredictable, but when riled, there’s not a crater deep enough to hide in. Not that Setesh would. He’s always loved a good fight — in and out of the bedroom.

RT AWARD WINNER

A species created by man to serve and obey. But we made a mistake…we gave it fangs.

We designed them for our use. To wage our greedy wars, toil in our poisonous lunar mines. We made them pleasing to the eye so our children would not have nightmares, tall and strong and smart so they would adapt to environments never meant to sustain life. We thought we had created the perfect sub-species. Obedient. Disposable. How wrong we were.

Helios stands alone. The first of a dying race. He has spent his life fighting to free his kind. To avenge them. His world is a cold, desolate one that has never been touched by grace or light until a hot-tempered woman, a human, marches into his life, his home and his guarded heart. Through Dawn’s dry humor and passionate embrace, he learns to trust again and to love. But just as he starts to hope, she is stolen from him. With his light gone, all that is left is darkness and revenge.

They took the one thing he loved and Helios will stop at nothing to get Dawn back. Even damn his eternal, vampire soul.

MY FIRST BOOK EVER PUBLISHED! SQUEE!

Femme Metal, Book One

Alexandra Novona has been called many things. Soldier. Enemy. Bodyguard. Bitch. Her body’s been through enough refits to trip every metal detector in the system. But nowadays, she’s what is politely referred to as a “privateer”. A new tag for an old job—slaver.

On the Femme Metal, a tough, ugly-as-hell little ship, she prowls deep space procuring males. Human or alien. She doesn’t much care. As long as they generate profit. And nothing will stop her from supplying her wealthy customers with top-grade male specimens for their brothel ships. Not even the seven-foot, blue-skinned, silver-haired wonder her customer very specifically requested. Unfortunately for Alex, she hadn’t counted on the gorgeous Yithian being a Hunter or how her own attractiveness and desirability could get her and her crew into hot water.

Sekmeth Meroh always gets his prey. For an exorbitant fee, he will catch anyone, of any race, on any world. He’s the best of his kind—a Hunter—and sneaky to boot. Sekmeth’s latest assignment—capture Alexandra Novona and her all female crew for a brothel ship near his own home world.

One little problem… Neither Alex nor Sekmeth can keep their hands—or lips—to themselves.
