Thrust into a deadly game….

Avery Lennox has been called many names, but bond mate was never one of them. Her position as Chief Security Officer for Cosmos Raines guarantees that her life will never be boring—especially after her genius boss decides to open a portal between Earth and Baade, a world filled with an annoying, male-dominated species called Prime—but after meeting one particular alien, Avery decides to pursue him through the portal.

The trip to another world was…indescribable, but it’s when she returns home that Avery is in the most danger. Someone else is as fascinated with Core as she is, and believes Avery is the perfect bait.

From the moment Core Ta’Duran met Avery, he was captivated by the human woman who shields herself with an icy demeanor and a gun. Avery knows he wants a lifetime with her, and even though she is fighting their bond, she still appears on his world with a tantalizing offer: three days together with no questions, no ties, and no regrets.

When he follows her back to Earth, instead of finding Avery, he discovers a menacing message left for him: agree to be hunted or Avery dies.

Can Avery and Core turn the tables on the ruthless killer who wants to display Core as a trophy in his private collection, or will Core lose the most crucial battle of his life?


She’d lost count of the number of dreams she’d had of him over the last few months. She always woke up tangled in her Egyptian cotton sheets, aching so badly she was ready to scream.

They were making it difficult to concentrate. She would be in the middle of reading a report or in a meeting with her team, only to realize that she had been staring into space, her mind focused on the huge, sexy Prime warrior.

It was time to nip this obsession in the bud. She was the Ice Queen. She could freeze a man’s balls off from a hundred paces. Her reaction to Core was simply primal attraction. They were both predators, how could she not want him?

Regardless of her desire, she would not allow her heart to become involved. Love created a vulnerability that could one day be revealed and exploited, no matter how hard a person tried to conceal it. No, once she satisfied her physical desire for Core, she could store the experience away and move on. It wasn’t like this was the first time she had been attracted to a man, and it wouldn’t be the last.

    Hooray! I didn’t realize that I hadn’t read the last two Cosmos books until i was rereading the series. I was thrilled to have “new” stories. I just finished Merricks story and realized it had been a REALLY long time since it was written. I nervously came over here to see the if there was any mention of Core’s story and here it is!!!! Just a short wait! I’m so glad! Can’t wait for Runt’s story, too. Your books are like the ild Calgon commercials – they “take me away” and I get nothing done until I’m finished. Hmmm. Maybe it is a good thing that it’s going to be about three weeks before Core’s story so this way I can get some work done ?

      LOL. Sometimes it is a good thing to just be discovered. I’m looking forward to returning to Cosmos’ Gateway. You are right, it has been too long!

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Adilene. I’m running behind – I slipped a book in that wasn’t planned – curse you squirrels! (Raises fists and shakes them dramatically while squirrels are ROTFLTAO). Core will be out the first part of July with Runt at the end so a definitely a Cosmos’ Gateway month!

      1. JJ says:

        Very disappointing, it has been promised several times over to be released at a certain date but every time it was pushed aside??
        Gateway is my favorite of the series and gets excited every time there is a “release date”

  10. Kate says:

    Very sad Avery and Core can’t have a baby. Can’t Terra and Cosmos come up with a womb repair kit in one of the next books? Pretty please? *sniffing dejectedly at 1 am because I really wanted them to have that happiness of a child and continued reading way past my bedtime in the hopes of a Happy End on top of the Happy End.*

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Sometimes it is the families that are made that are the best! Don’t feel sad for them. You might be surprised about some of the things that are still to come in this world! 😀
