Merrick Ta’Duran is the powerful leader of the Eastern Mountain Clan on the Prime world of Baade. His people, known as the Ghosts of the Forests, live high in the Eastern mountains. Merrick feels the weight of responsibility as the males within his clan become desperate to find mates among the few remaining females. When word comes that a new species has been discovered, he knows he must do what is right for his people – even if it means traveling to a strange, alien realm to do it.

Merrick’s world changes when he is injured and captured by a ruthless group of humans. Drugged and held against his will, he is the subject of experiments and testing as the humans try to discover where he came from and duplicate his strength and ability to heal quickly. After months of captivity, he fears his life will end on the strange world until one chance encounter gives him hope.

Addie Banks’ world has been one of silence since a devastating illness when she was sixteen. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she goes to school during the day and works at night to put herself through college. Her life unexpectedly changes when she stumbles across something she wasn’t supposed to see while at work. Now, she hears a voice in her head – and it is driving her crazy. Her only hope for peace is to help the creature talking to her escape from the men holding him.

Merrick knows the female who helps him is his bond mate. She may deny it. She may fight it. She may even try to run from it. It won’t matter. She is his and he will do everything he can to convince her, hold her, even kidnap her if that is what it takes to make her realize that they belong together.

Will Addie hear the love and longing in Merrick’s voice? Can she trust and accept the new life he has to offer? Or, will a ruthless killer silence him before she gets a chance?

    • Hi Laura and thanks for the heads up. I think what you are seeing is the date I published the synopsis on which was back in November 2013. The release date is yet to be set. Sorry for the confusion.

  • have been waiting for Merrick’s story since he first appeared in the Cosmos Gateway books, I will keep checking back for release date. My favorite series are Zion Warriors, Lords of Kassis, Spirit Pass, and Alliance. You can’t write them fast enough and I have reread them many times on my kindle. Thank you so much.

    • I’m so glad you are enjoying my different series, Diana. I will let you know here and on FB once I have a release date for Merrick.

  • Can’t wait for any of your books, I enjoy each of your series. Please see about having your stories done audible. I would love to hear your books. Keep writing!

    • Hi Brenda,
      I’m working on audio books for all my series. Thank you for letting me know that you would love to listen to them.

  • Pls.pls.make the date for the release of Merricks story.
    I’m so so happy that you write a very interesting and awesome story. I hope you don’t forget the rest of the other series coz all of them I really really like. I pray that you will not suffer from mental or authors block so that you keep on writing stories that will enlighten our hearts and spirits after reading your books. God bless you.

    • Hi Lina,
      Thank you so much for your lovely post. Writer’s Block doesn’t seem to be a problem, thank goodness. The biggest issue is all the characters talking at the same time! Merrick’s Maiden will be out a little later this fall. I plan to finish Touch of Frost, Twin Dragons, Spirit Warrior, then Merrick’s Maiden. Now that I am writing full time, I look forward to discovering even more worlds!

  • I did the same thing, have been waiting for twin dragons all day. then I realized that it was a posting date I saw, not a release date:( oh well Im ready read, anytime you have something to publish even the childrens book if its for pre-teen. love to introduce my niece to your writing. chris

  • Love all your books…can’t wait for them to come out on audible cause I have a severely disabled daughter who would love to listen….they are do much fun and really do tell a story about perseverance

  • Just finished Twin Dragons and the 2nd book of the Alliance series. Then had to reread book 1 of the Alliance, can’t wait for Dagger’s and Saber’s stories.
    Now might just have reread the Zion Warriors 😉

  • I have read all of your books more than once……I love you stories and all the characters!!…I can’t wait for the new releases of all your series…..just finished Razor’s Traitorous Heart and can’t wait for Daggers Hope!…

    • I’m looking forward to Dagger and Jordan’s story as well. I think the most amazing thing is I ‘discover’ what happens right along with my readers when I am writing!

  • So I have read all these books but I don’t remember Amelia “Runt” and Derik meeting? What book do they interact in? I would like to read it,.

    I have just finished this series and I was in love with it. I have read/listened to several of your books. But this series was hilarious. I loved Rita and Rita2 and even DAR. In book 4 I actually laughed out loud. Thank you for your awesome writing.
