Lieutenant Commander Ashton ‘Ash’ Haze has always embraced two things in his life: adventure and women. He gets more than he expects when he wakes on an alien planet after the experimental spaceship he and his companions are on is pulled through an ancient gateway they have been sent to explore. Now, his priorities have changed – or so he thought.
Kella Ta’Qui is a Turbinta – a race known for their skills as an assassin. Taken from her home as a child, she is trained in the deadly skills as a silent killer. Her first mission is to find and kill whatever was inside the unusual capsule that landed on the small planet of Tesla Terra. Her mission soon turns from one of predator to prey when she finds herself wounded after an encounter with her would-be target. Daze and confused, she stumbles onto others that would sell her to the highest bidder. Despair turns to hope when an unexpected male suddenly appears and carries her to safety.
Ash’s skills from his wayward youth and his training in the Navy come in handy when he discovers a desert city, but nothing prepares him for the impact on his emotions when he comes across a wounded alien woman. His discovery that she knows where a fellow crew member might be, unwittingly thrusts them both into the middle of a civil war between two rival causes.
The fight has begun and the race is on to find the other members before the Legion does. Can an easy-going Navy pilot and an alien assassin work together to reach the location of one of the capsules in the cutthroat Turbintan planet, or will Ash find himself served up to the Legion for the highest number of credits? Whatever happens, the war has begun with the first awakening of the resistance – a resistance that Ash has volunteered to fight with.
A batch of heart-shaped cookies stirs the imagination of the dragonlings and their friends when Carmen shares a magical tale of love. It will take a very special Valentine, a few mischievous dragonlings, their best friends, some clueless warriors, and two enchanting Goddesses to help a lonely woman find the dragon who loves her.
Love is in the air and not even the mighty warriors of the Valdier, Curizan, and Sarafin are immune to the power of celebrating their feelings for the women who have changed their lives. Hearts, glue, and glitter abound when the warriors help the dragonlings on their quest to assist Cupid in this delightful tale of love, hope, and happiness.
Destin Parks will do whatever it takes to rebuild the city he calls home, even if it means working with the new alien ambassador sent to oversee the project. His encounter with her predecessor left him hesitant to trust the alien diplomats assigned to Chicago’s rebuilding. The problem is – if he doesn’t work with them, they will try to replace him and that is not going to happen without a fight.
Jersula Ikera was assigned to Earth by the Alliance Council. The Council hopes her cool logic and calm demeanor will resolve the upheaval caused by the last ambassador. Jersula has fought hard for her position, and while not pleased with her current assignment as a liaison to the humans, she will do her best to help rebuild the world its inhabitants have destroyed. What she does not anticipate is her reaction to the hardheaded male that she has been assigned to. His ability to get under her skin and ignite a flame inside her leaves her confused and mystified.
Danger undermines Jersula’s efforts when she uncovers another alien cartel’s plans to traffic human women and children. A near fatal attack leaves her trusting no one except the one man who has sworn to protect them. Together, Destin and Jersula race to stop the traffickers before the women and children are taken off-planet. What they don’t realize is that the traffickers are not the only ones they are fighting against; the Waxian and Drethulan forces have targeted Earth.
Can Destin and Jersula stop the traffickers and prevent the deadly forces of the Waxians and Drethulans from destroying the progress they have made? Will the Alliance be able to protect Destin when the enemy discovers his connection to a powerful Alliance family? The battle for Earth has just turned personal.
