Interplanetary Marine Lt. Lukas Frank has a lot in common with a street dog named Bang-Bang; they both started off as scrappy orphans fighting to survive—and beat the odds. Things change when Bang-Bang leads Lukas to starpilot Capt. Carlynn Riga. The tough war hero learns what it means to surrender — his heart. Lukas’s struggles with PTSD threaten to tear the three of them apart, but nothing threatens them more than when Carlynn goes missing on a mission. Can a scarred marine and his unlikely canine partner find Carlynn and bring her home, or will he lose everything he’s finally found worth fighting for?

Navigator Taro Shall has a mission no one wants – find a way to eradicate snakes on a starship. He never expects to find the answer to his problem in a charming street vendor named Adini. His already unusual mission becomes more complicated when he suddenly acquires an adorable StarDog that soon sweeps him and Adini into the maw of a brewing insurrection.

Young Roboticist Ten Jaxdown has to deploy, and possibly sacrifice, the swarm of investigative robots that he has invented and cares about more than anything else in the star system. It may be the only hope for those depending on him and his robots to save them. Yet, even as frantic preparations for the unprecedented deep-space rescue mission are set in motion, it could all be threatened by sabotage.

Anastasia Steed is an intrepid young mission designer. She steps forward with an idea that can improve the odds of the mission. Neither she nor Ten expect the assistance they receive from a very unusual pet. A pet that will bring together two alienated human beings who didn’t realize they needed each other. Can Ten and Anastasia discover who is behind the sabotage, save the mission, and discover what is evolving between them? With a little bit of unusual help, anything is possible.

Graig Roble is the Senior Commander of security for the Guardian Fleet. His expertise as a weapons specialist and combat master is his world, what he was born to do - or so he thought until he finds his resolve and focus inexplicably wavering. Even returning to his position aboard the Atlantis can't save him; if anything, it has left him questioning his own motives. He never thought that could happen until he met Simone Campbell.

Simone's focus is on her home world - Earth. She thought her life was full with her research as a botanist. After all, she always believed that helping the people of her world become self-sufficient should take all of her concentration - except it doesn't. There is one man that keeps pulling her attention, and her heart, away from her job.

Graig's gift of a puppy to keep her company does more than that, it keeps him in her dreams. How can such a simple gift bring her comfort and make her long for more? Graig and Simone are about to find out that sometimes love can blossom from the smallest, furriest ties.

By Carysa Locke
Teegan’s job as a hunter is to track down the Talented, those driven insane by their gifts. She and Ember, her psychically gifted fox, have tracked dozens of people for Cole, the man who works to rehabilitate and recover these troubled souls. When one of Cole’s most dangerous patients escapes, Teegan and Ember are on a hunt that could prove fatal if she doesn’t keep her focus on her mission. Unfortunately, Cole is proving one distraction that might make this her last hunt if she can’t do that.

Can Teegan keep her heart and mind in the game long enough to save an entire planet’s population, or will her distraction lead to heartache – and possibly death for everyone?

Sexy, addictive, and perfect if you are looking for unique stories filled with hot, alpha dragon-shifting alien men and strong female protagonists that will leave you cheering for more! 


  • Christine says:

    Is there a way to still get a copy (ecopy) of pets in space?

    • S.E. Smith says:

      The anthology is no longer on sale, unfortunately, but many authors have their stories available. I will be expanding mine to full length then release it. There is still a lot to tell!

  • Angie says:

    When will this book be available on Amazon UK? It looks great!

    • S.E. Smith says:

      The first one is no longer available but Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 will be available worldwide in October.

  • Dave Bedwin says:

    Good set of stories. Though a couple of them lost me overall it’s a good read.

  • Christine Frey says:

    Hi SE Smith! Can’t wait for this to come to Amazon. What I like is that I have more authors to fall in love with. I recently discovered this genre and am sad to say all vampires have bit the dust unless they are also aliens. ?

    • S.E. Smith says:

      LOL. Have you read Taking on Tory? It is free. She is a Vampire that is a little different, along with the rest of Magic, New Mexico. Still, I do love my aliens!

  • Dawn says:

    Is this amazing book going to be on Amazon? I have been looking but can’t find it ! Thanks for all the amazing books! ???

  • Dianna Slowey-Thomas says:

    This sounds impossibly fun!! I already want more?! I enjoy fantasy and science fiction, but as a voracious reader, after awhile they all start sounding the same. This is a much needed add for the genre. I can hardly ?wait

    • S.E. Smith says:

      Thank you, Dianna! It is always rewarding to be able to offer something new and exciting to readers. I agree, about it being difficult when they all start sound the same. It is one reason why I move from series to series and then start a new one, to keep them fresh! Thank you again!!

  • Diana says:

    I, too, love cats! I didn’t see a Zephyr synopsis. Is this available for pre-order?

    • S.E. Smith says:

      It will be available for pre-order on all sites except for Amazon due to their schedule and ours. I’ll be sending out links when they are available.

  • Lisa says:

    Sounds like fun, although I don’t see any cats in the synopses, and was hoping for more.
