Rownt trader Ondry and his human palteia Liam Munson are traveling aboard a ship with a contingent of Rownt Calti Grandmothers.  It will be the first time their species attempts to trade in human territory.  As Rownt spend their long existence in the pursuit of trade and accumulating wealth everything hinges on a positive outcome.

 

The humans had previously sent Colonel Susan Diallo to the large space ship as their representative in order to begin negotiations before the actual trading commenced.  Unfortunately the Rownt Grandmothers didn’t feel comfortable with the Colonel and they’ve asked Liam to be present when the trade negotiations start.

 

Though Ondry is proud of Liam’s position as aid to the Grandmothers he is becoming increasingly concerned with his palteia’s mental state.  It’s not that long ago that Liam’s submissive behavior caused the human to make poor choices which damaged his soul. Now he’s being expected to hold a difficult, dominant position which Liam isn’t really capable of doing without consequences.  The end to these negotiations can’t come soon enough.

 

Affiliations, Aliens and other Profitable Pursuits resumes the profound relationship between the alien Rownt and his human palteia.  Their fascinating, evolving love draws the reader into their complex world.  It’s a positive bond they share in this sometimes intense storyline.  There is no question that the series must be read in order.  Fans will be thrilled with Ondry and Liam’s latest book.  Any new readers would be completely lost so start at the beginning.  Affiliations, Aliens and other Profitable Pursuits offers a very particular kind of romance with bold characters and a unique otherworldly setting.  Let your imagination take flight as Ondry and Liam work their own brand of magic.

Earth’s alien invasion was worse than people once fearfully imagined it could be.  It wasn’t a blockbuster movie with great special effects.  Rather, it was the destruction of major cities and deaths beyond thousands.

 

As Chris and his family watched from their little town nestled in the California mountain foothills the whole thing seems unreal.  After clearing the cities the alien forces began targeting smaller population areas.  Any sign of fighting meant certain death.  It also became clear that small framed young men were being singled out and taken by the aliens for some unknown purpose.

 

The people of Alashar were compelled to abandon their planet when it became clear that their home would be taken into the void.  Scout ships found a new planet in Earth.  Told that the population was vicious and not worth saving the Alashar warriors decimated the human cities and then began destroying smaller populations.  They did however cull the males who would be well suited as sex slaves.

 

Chris and his younger cousin Morgan were captured when foraging for supplies at a tourist site.  Forced into cages Chris was about to be abused by an Alashar slave master when fate intervened in the form of another warrior intent on claiming the human.

 

Alashar warriors Lasar and Nary are soul match bonded.  As the dominant Lasar is titled the Ahna while Nary is the submissive Nasha in their pairing.  A visit to pick out a sex slave has unexpected results as Nary intuitively knows that Chris must be their own.  Something unimaginable occurs when Chris is brought into Lasar and Nary’s bed.  The human’s reaction to them cannot be.  Shaken and worried they will need answers before anyone else finds out what Chris means to their soul matched Alashar bond.

 

A clever blend of action, drama, and sensuality Slave For Two weaves a heart pounding, chilling tale. The world collapses and humanity perishes under the rubble in the first Soul Match book. Fighting for survival the characters shine in the tense storyline.  Riveting twists and turns in Slave For Two are certain to keep readers completely engrossed in this book.  Slave For Two is an addicting page turner and book two can’t come soon enough.

The unauthorized ship crash lands in the desert.  Somehow inexplicably, Ellis Ligoria, King of the planet Xol felt drawn to the site.  And it is Ellis who found the injured stranger, unconscious and hidden under the sands within the lost city.

 

It is a long road toward recovery for Jem. It’s also a real surprise that he wasn’t all human, but part Xolani, a genetically submissive member of the planet who could bear children for his Master.

 

Drawn to each other Ellis and Jem tried to fight what they felt even as the bonds began to strengthen.  Eventually they gave in to fate. Ellis accepted his responsibility to take care of Jem and married him.  Slowly Jem sunk into his role as a submissive and found a certain peace he’d never before known.

 

Unknown to Ellis were the secrets and lies Jem held from him.  His old life wasn’t as a simple Vagabond travelling the stars.  Jem is the son of a very powerful man, a member of the High Council Leland Prentiss.  Worse Jem was married to Bellamy Wallace whose influence knows no bounds.  They want Xol to join the Planetary Union.  Something the King has refused thus far.  When Ellis discovers the truth it might not matter in the least that Jem loves him.

 

Love is blind.  But no one can forget where they come from, what makes them the person they are.  In Pretty Human a man is forced to face some ugly truths rather than sweep them under the proverbial rug.  Strong motivations and fascinating charactizations bind Pretty Human together.  The slightly confusing start however presumes the reader immediately understand the traditions and behaviors of Xol people.  Having said that, once Ellis and Jem’s romance begins to evolve Pretty Human becomes an exciting love story with engaging power plays and more. Each chapter draws the reader further and further into Jem’s traumatic past and his chance at a loving future.  A slow start and a wondrous ending.

Series: Border Wars #3
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: MM, Science Fiction

Peacemaker Merq Grayson and former Dark Ops Armise Darcan follow the Revolution and the will of their leaders.  Months and months of playing hide and seek with members of the Opposition council have ended.  Only the Opposition leader Ahriman Blanc is still alive and kicking, hiding from them.  Blanc is the last one on their list to assassinate.

 

Back at the Revolution’s underground bunker they suffer devastating loss from a source they mistakenly thought neutral.   Merq sees a shift in those he can trust.  Something is going on.  His inner voice is answered when suddenly Armise voluntarily leaves his side and disappears.  The hardened Peacemaker grows more brutal in the war and shows his grief to no one.

 

Darcan’s return ravages the Revolution leadership and nearly destroys Merq.  Trusting his lover is something he can’t shake, even after the Dark Ops defection and consequent return.  As Merq wrestles with his feelings he learns the true reason for Armise’s actions.  Not only does the news send the leadership spinning, but a worse threat is revealed to them, courtesy of Armise.

 

The horrors of war are explicitly told in the third installment in The Borders War series titled Powerless.  Unbelievably barbaric conditions, fancy tech, and a binding love are the focus in this tense, twisty tale.  An action that shakes Merq to his soul involves his lover which stretches their relationship to the brink and shows a necessary emotional edge to Powerless.  A new, worse problem is the tantalizing ending to set readers up for the next story.  Powerless is a powerful cautionary tale with a strong, unshakable bond between the main characters.

Series: Border Wars #1
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: MM, Science Fiction

In the year 2558 the world is divided into five separate nations.  The population’s been decimated and for the past three hundred years the Borders War has raged.  Soldiers are ironically called Peacemakers.

 

One such Peacemaker, Merq Grayson named for his past relative who invented the sonic bullet is considered the most skilled assassin in the Continental States.  He lost his parents to the Borders War at five years of age and the government then took charge of him.  They trained Merq to be the perfect weapon by the time he reached his teens.

 

Lethal Dark Ops assassin Armise Darcan of the People’s Republic of Singapore is Merq’s counterpart in the war.  Perhaps better.  Four years older than Merq, Armise is a solitary killer whereas Merq has always been assigned to a team.

 

For as long as they can remember Merq and Armise have been enemies, the deadliest of foes which makes their secret even worse.  At each encounter their passion ignites.  If anyone from either side knew what was happening they would be charged with treason, yet Merq and Armise are unable to stop their combustible love making or their emotional attachment.

 

Suddenly everything changes when a ceasefire is called.  Leaders from each side chose the Olympics as a way of healing.  Both Merq and Armise are expected to attend and compete in the rifle competitions.  They both know that nobody is to be trusted.  It may be a time to bring people together.  But for what?

 

A highly absorbing drama, One Breath, One Bullet brings a scary, deadly future to life. This thought provoking character story pits two emotionless killers against each other and sparks fly.  Dark and dangerous from beginning to end One Breath, One Bullet is a riveting story.  Love is not allowed for Peacemakers, so Merq and Armise make each moment count. For them, a moment must last a lifetime in One Breath, One Bullet.  Book one is a bull’s eye for forbidden love.
