What's on the Reading Radar? #TBR #WishList

What is going on? Well, I forgot to create a post for the Reading Radar last Saturday. It has just been so busy with getting Constant polished for release (and all the things that go with it) and trying to catch up on the numerous projects waiting for me. Besides, I haven't read anything new in the last couple of weeks, but I have been re-reading. I have three audible credits that I can't find anything that I want to spend them on.

Title: The Brimstone Journals
Series: Collection Three
Author: Angel Martinez
Length: 165 pages

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Fantasy / 


Blurb: The Brimstone.

Cargo hauler, brigand ship, privateer. Crewed by the exiled, the misplaced, the uniquely strange and even a certain government assassin. Together, they've faced interstellar criminals, the wrath of archangels, the threat of frogs, their own terrors, nearly deadly buttercopters, and government paperwork. Through it all, as Brimstone's inhabitants expanded from two demons on the run to a complement of eleven various and sundry beings, they've become more than crew. They've evolved into family. Join us now for some snippets from the characters' timelines, flash fiction shorts between the stories from Shax and Verin as kids in Hell all the way to events after The Hunt for Red Fluffy.

The Brimstone Journals, Collection Three also includes a novelette in which the crew discovers that sometimes the simple task of holiday shopping is much more dangerous than it should be.

Title: MEM
Series: Alien Acquisitions, 1
Author: Misha Adrik

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Interstellar Assassin / Bio-engineered Super Human / BDSM (maybe) /


Blurb: Abel Bancroft is an Interstellar MI6 assassin who doesn’t do relationships. He is perfectly content playing at his favorite BDSM club and picking up random hookups to fill his nights. When he’s asked to play babysitter to a bio-engineered super-human, he knows his carefully ordered life is about to be thoroughly interrupted.

Humans fear the Reapers and Mem has known it his entire life. Raised in a facility on the barren moon of Arethea outside the orbit of Era 3, freedom is only a word that he knows exists in the dictionary. New London is supposed to be his opportunity to have a life, so long as he can put up with the arrogant, sexy agent assigned to watch him.

If the missions don’t get them into trouble, the sparks between them definitely will. Being perfectly matched by the MI6 wasn’t supposed to lead to the two of them crashing into bed together but sometimes falling together is the only way to keep from falling apart.

[includes: one smartass assassin Daddy, one genetically engineered sexpot, & making a place of peace in an uncertain universe]

Title: Mercenary Royal
Series: Dead Suns
Author: Shona Husk
Length: 199 pages

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Mercenary /  Arranging Your Own Kidnapping / 

Note: What made me look at this series is I stumbled onto the 2nd book that has a bisexual MC, plus the blurb is interesting with her arranging her own kidnapping. And if she actually uses the gun she's holding on the cover, then I'm there.

Blurb: Is it a rescue or a princess-napping? Nyssa Leofric can't marry the new head of Riel Industries. They trade in illegal weapons and he only wants her for her wealth and family name. When her parents insist, and unable to escape on her own, she arranges arranges her own kidnapping, hiring the mercenaries known as the Dead Suns.

Jessie Tabris believes in two things: getting the money up front and that people lie. He takes the job because Riel owes him credits. But when Nyssa's ransom is paid, he finds himself in a bind. No one should be forced into a life they don’t want. But the Dead Suns are threatening to disavow him and his team if he doesn’t return Nyssa to Riel.

Now they must work together or they could both wind up as part of Riel's next experiment.

For readers who like action, romance and space battles!

Title: Saint of Dead Gods
Series: A Saint-Moreno Supernatural Thriller
Author: B.C. Palmer

Genre: Non-Romantic / Thriller / Urban Fantasy / 

Note: I feel as if I have been circling this book for ages. 

Blurb: Adam Saint was never much of a sorcerer to begin with and would rather be at the bottom of a bottle than anywhere near the supernatural world. For ten years he’s done a pretty good job of that—and even managed to get his demonic possession issue under control. That little vacation is about to come to a very painful end.

When Adam is approached by the Coven to find not only a powerful young witch who can see the future, but also his mysteriously vanished uncle—Portland’s supernatural sheriff—he doesn’t have much of a choice in the matter. Old Saint Pete is the only thing standing between Adam and the wrath of the Sorcerer’s Enclave. Problem is, the people responsible are already on someone else’s radar.

Vanessa Moreno’s life is about to change forever. She’s got two homicide cases that are equally horrifying, a foul-mouthed drunk raving about monsters and magic and other impossible things, and a man who spends half his time naked and the other half in the shape of a jaguar. The world has clearly gone insane—but if so, Vanessa must be mad as well.

Because monsters, magic, demon kitties, warlocks and ancient gods hungry for new life are deadly serious, and this dysfunctional dream team may be all that stands between us and the End. A tide of vengeance and magic is approaching, and billions of lives are on the line. Maybe they can stop it. Maybe they can’t.

One thing is for sure: survival in this world comes at a steep price. Always.

Saint of Dead Gods is a re-release of a previously published book "New Shoes", under Harbinger Press.

Title: The Unspoken Name
Series: (The Serpent Gates Book 1)
Author: AK Larkwood
Length: 464 pages / 18 hours & 37 Minutes

Genre: Fantasy / Action & Adventure / Priestess Turned Assassin / Wizard / LGBT 

Notes: So, I said that I had Audible credits to spend. I found something to spend it on. 

Blurb: What if you knew how and when you will die?

Csorwe does—she will climb the mountain, enter the Shrine of the Unspoken, and gain the most honored title: sacrifice.

But on the day of her foretold death, a powerful mage offers her a new fate. Leave with him, and live. Turn away from her destiny and her god to become a thief, a spy, an assassin—the wizard's loyal sword. Topple an empire, and help him reclaim his seat of power.

But Csorwe will soon learn—gods remember, and if you live long enough, all debts come due.

Title: Jack Addison vs. A Whole World of Hot Trouble
Series: The Complete Series
Author: KA Merikan

Genre: Erotic Romp / Fantasy / Humorous / Monster Hunter / Enemies to Lovers / Opposites Attract /

Notes: KA Merikan writes stories a little darker than what I usually read, but I saw this advertised as a humorous romp and I thought I'd give it a try.

Blurb: “Any monster is a lover if you’re brave enough.”

Jack Addison. Son of a world famous monster hunter. Irresistible jerk. Monster-curious.

Roux Chat-Bonnes. Ginger. Furry. Claws like razors and a tongue to match!

At just nineteen, Jack’s fresh out of a prestigious academy, set to make a name for himself as a monster hunter in a world where people need protection from strange and dangerous creatures.

Raised to see nonhumans as monsters to be eradicated, or at the very least—inferior beings, he soon finds out that he’s been taught lies, and his initial distrust of creatures turns into fascination that goes beyond anything his father could imagine.

After an encounter with a giant spider, Jack falls down a rabbit hole of affairs with werewolves, kitsune, a centaur, a merman, a tentacle creature called Nessie, and even a vampire!

But all of those dalliances fade in comparison to his one true heart throb—Roux Chat-Bonnes, a cat-like being, and his most vicious rival. As brave as he is infuriating, and as furry as he is sexy, Roux is the moral compass Jack wishes he didn’t have.

If he ever wants to win Roux’s heart, he needs to prove that he’s more than just a handsome jerk sneaking around with any monster he can get his hands on, but a man brave enough to do what’s right, even if it makes him unpopular. Even if that means standing up to his famous father.

In this serial, each episode encompasses a single event from Jack Addison’s career, but while they are partially self-contained, the romantic arc and Jack’s personal journey, develop over time, so it’s best to not read the stories out of turn.

Just Around The Corner! #constant #TheValespianPact

I think that I missed making Constant's announcement here on the blog. The third book in the Valespian Pact has a release date! March 20, 2020

Whew! There were days when I thought I would never finish this book. It was a problem child from day one and I'm pretty sure that Constant is a bit smug about that fact.

I have been writing Constant almost exclusively for the better part of two years. It has given me fits the whole way. I had a plan, really I did, and Constant refused to follow the plan, went off the rails (many, many times) and it did whatever the hell it wanted, despite my protests.

Constant is about Prince Mestor and Warlord Sohm'lan, but it's also about the Vondorian family and the Atlaintician people. I've said frequently that this is a story that needed to be told and I didn't realize it until almost too late. 

Like I said, I had a plan and it was not for Mestor and Sohm'lan to have their own book. Their story was going to play out over the the next several books of the series with Mestor finally winning Sohm'lan in the last book, Legends. Their journey started while they were escorting Zeus and the Oethra 7 to Valespia, and I penned a couple of scenes to jump start things. Then I thought, "Hey! I bet there is enough to give them a novella that shares a timeline with Striker." And I wrote some more. Then I realized, that the 35k wasn't enough space for them... then, it reached 67k. I sent it out to the beta readers, and dude, it was not the best it could be.

Part of the problem was me thinking I knew what people wanted to read instead of writing the story that wanted to come out. There were changes coming to Atlainticia that I was going to mention in other books in passing because, dammit, I write romance and that other stuff was not romancey... but it was a part that makes the Vondorians, the Mar'Sani who they were, and shapes who Prince Mestor and Warlord Sohm'lan become.

Needless to say, that once I got over myself *cough*cough* wrong assumptions, I threw out chapters and scenes, and rewrote the story that had been waiting on me to get with the program. Two hundred and fifty thousand words (yes, you heard me correctly, 250k) later Constant is an Epic Sci-Fi/Fantasy Super-Novel. (And I never, ever want to write a story that long again!!)  Along the way there was a lot of cussing and cursing and threats of strapping the manuscript to a bonfire, but it eventually shaped itself into a novel of love and laughter, of hope and redemption, and of course, family. I can't wait for you to join the ride!


Can a Warlord and a Prince find love when the galaxy is on the brink of war?

Chief Warlord Sohm'lan has a job he loves protecting the family who claims him as one of their own. He has known the loss of a mate and believed he would walk alone for the rest of his life… that is until Prince Mestor demanded more from him than duty. Unable to fathom why Mestor would want a widowed older warrior, Sohm'lan maintains his distance believing Mestor will eventually choose an amor closer in age and experience, even though the thought causes him more pain than it should.

Prince Mestor is tired of pretending and his patience is eroding. He needs Sohm'lan to see past their respective ranks and duties to who Mestor is underneath it all. Worried Sohm'lan will be lost to him if he pushes too hard, Mestor and Sohm'lan are caught in a dance of denied desires and tangled obligations.

Warlord Sohm'lan and Prince Mestor struggle to find a way to their heart's desire against the backdrop of galactic conspiracies, the dangerous mission escorting the Fal'Amoric royals, and discoveries within the Vondorian family that threaten to tear apart everything they hold dear. The two of them stand together to fight the coming battle whatever the consequences.

What's on the Reading Radar? #read #WishList #TBR

What a week! I got a little breathing room and took Friday off. Got some packing done and laundry... and that sounds boring but it was a change of pace which I really needed. I did get a new read under my belt but I also did some re-listening of audiobooks too. 

Title: Stop at Nothing
Series: The Chosen One, 5
Author: Macy Blake
Length: 246 pages

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Poly / Gay

Notes: I read this over the week, excited to see how she would resolve the issue. It was a great culmination to the series. I love Nick. I love everyone else, but Nick...

Blurb: Series Finale

With all of his mates assembled, Sawyer Smith should be ready for his own version of the end game. He must defeat the god of air and restore both of their broken magics to all of the realms. There’s only one problem: he still doesn’t know how to do it.

HIs brother is a god and is raising the forces of darkness against Sawyer and his mates more quickly than he can mount a defense. It’s time to fight, but Sawyer has too much to lose to risk disaster. As the final pieces of the puzzle fall into place, Sawyer is faced with a task that seems impossible. He must go into battle without the knowledge or power to win.

So many of his questions remain unanswered, but Sawyer knows one thing: He will stop at nothing to keep his mates safe.

Title: Blazing
Series: Valos of Sonhadra
Author: Nancey Cummings
Length: 185 pages

Genre: Romance / Fantasy-Sci-Fi / Poly / MFMM /

Notes: I don't think that I have read anything by this author before, but this book is in the Valos series and I'm considering giving it a try. 

Blurb: A woman on fire.

Lucie survived four hellish years in prison, being sucked through a wormhole and crashing onto an alien planet. All she wants is to go home. Passion and rage burn in her. She wants her life back and nothing will stop her: not prison, not an alien planet and not three powerful aliens determined to claim her. They won't distract her with their smoldering embrace or fiery kisses.

Alien men forged from fire.

Sarsen, Ertale and Asche spent the last thousand years waiting for release from their bonds. When the intriguing female bursts into their lives, she frees them from their unending servitude and ignites the fire in their heartstones. Now she thinks she can just leave them behind?

Not acceptable.

All three will do whatever it takes to make Lucie understand that her body and her heart belongs to them.

The Valos of Sonhadra series is the shared vision of nine sci-fi and fantasy romance authors. Each book is a standalone, containing its own Happy Ever After, and can be read in any order.
Blazing is a Reverse Harem story with three heroes and one lucky heroine, complete and no cliffhangers.

Title: Witchbond
Series: Kitsune Chronicles, 2
Author: Lissa Kasey
Length: 308 pages

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Urban Fantasy / Gay

Notes: LOVE this series. 

Blurb: If your super power meant you could turn into a kitsune, a powerful fox spirit, you wouldn’t fear for the life of your mate, right?

Sebastian survived an entire year on the run from the supernatural. Then he met Liam, his fated mate and alpha werewolf, and thought maybe he’d found a home. Until the fae come calling. They want control of Seb’s power, even if that means eliminating Liam to get it.

When a trick leaves Seb in trouble with the werewolves, the military, and the fae, he fears his only option is to run. Except Seb is done running. He will stop at nothing to keep Liam by his side, even if it means letting his beast loose on them all.

Title: Slay My Love
Author: Lee Colgin
Length: 242 pages

Genre: Slow Burn Romance / Enemies to Lovers / Vampire / Gay

Notes: I have never read Lee Colgin before but the cover caught my attention when I was book browsing. I've been looking for vampire romances lately and I love enemies to lovers, so I put this on the wish list. 

Blurb: What happens when you’re attracted to the very person who wants to kill you?

Gianni, a born vampire, lives among undead brethren striving to find his place in their society.

Franklin, a vampire hunter, accepts a mission from the Scourge to capture Gianni for testing.

The pair meet along dark city streets, and an ill-fated attraction smolders between them. Natural enemies form an unlikely bond, but the peace between them cannot last.

The Scourge—an ancient organization bent on conquering supernaturals—need a born vampire for their labs. Franklin needs to rise in the ranks to live up to his family name. Gianni is caught in the fray. Where shame and betrayal loom large, can a vampire and a slayer find love, or will one have to kill the other to survive?

Slay My Love is a gay paranormal romance with a slow burn enemies to lovers trope. Content includes passionate scenes and violence. Intended for mature readers.

56,000 words, standalone, no cliffhanger ending, HFN

Title: Lord of the Last Heartbeat
Series: (The Sacred Dark Book 1)
Author: May Peterson

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Dark Fantasy Horror (per one of Amazon's categories) / Gay

Notes: So Dark Fantasy Horror is usually not a category that I usually read, but I have been looking for something different and I'm not going to know if this is going to jive with me unless I give it a try. 

Blurb: Stop me. Please.

Three words scrawled in bloodred wine. A note furtively passed into the hand of a handsome stranger. Only death can free Mio from his mother’s political schemes. He’s put his trust in the enigmatic Rhodry—an immortal moon soul with the power of the bear spirit—to put an end to it all.

But Rhodry cannot bring himself to kill Mio, whose spellbinding voice has the power to expose secrets from the darkest recesses of the heart and mind. Nor can he deny his attraction to the fair young sorcerer. So he spirits Mio away to his home, the only place he can keep him safe—if the curse that besieges the estate doesn’t destroy them both first.

In a world teeming with mages, ghosts and dark secrets, love blooms between the unlikely pair. But if they are to be strong enough to overcome the evil that draws ever nearer, Mio and Rhodry must first accept a happiness neither ever expected to find.

What's on the Reading Radar? #TBR #WishList

Man, January passed without me accomplishing what I wanted to accomplish, and yet I've been crazy busy. Edits, edits, and more edits as I work on getting Constant ready for publishing. Bespoken Lost is at 74k and I started a Valespian Pact side story as a *super secret project* (I'm not going to give any hints about it other than I love this little story!). I had hoped that I would have chapters for Assassin's Retirement ready and posted, but... points up at the edits, those have taken up the majority of my time. 

I honestly have not done a lot of reading the last couple of weeks, and what I have read has taken days for me to finish because I've had limited time. But I did go a little pre-order crazy for books that I'm excited for the release of and all of them have been releasing the last week or so.

Title: Not Quite Human
Series: Not Quite, 1
Author: Kaye Draper
Length: 151 pages

Genre: Romance / Urban Fantasy / Intersex MC / Poly

Notes: So I have been excited to get my hands on this book since she announced it was coming in her newsletter. 

Blurb: Not quite human, not quite beast. Not quite female, not quite male. Sometimes hunter, sometimes prey. Always alone. Until them.

Fiend hunter Sam “Sabertooth” Forest is used to being on the outskirts. A cur with a mix of shifter and human blood, Sam can’t fully shift to beast but can’t fully pass as human. Through sheer determination, and a desire to protect the broken shifter woman who raised them, Sam has managed to eek out a place of their own in a world devastated by the rift that allowed monsters to spill into the earth plane. Sam hunts monsters, sometimes curs and mongrels just like Sam. The work might be dangerous, and the humans might want to put the mixed breed hunter on their hitlist, but it’s a job. It’s freedom. Sam works alone and trusts no one.

The next hunt should bring in a big bounty—big enough to pay the pack extortion fee and keep Sam’s adoptive mother safe through winter. But when a Leprechaun horns in on the unicorn hunt and tricks Sam into forming a hunter’s guild, Sam is suddenly burdened by an overabundance of people.

Setting off to hunt one-horned murder beasts with an annoying leprechaun and a nerdy half-ogre is bad enough. But when you add in a betrayal by the seductive siren Sam has loved since childhood, and the machinations of a rich human politician, well…Sam’s simple, lonely little life just got a whole lot more complicated.

Author’s Note:

I love reverse harem, but I got sick of reading the same old tropes. In my books you will find atypical characters and varied sexuality. In general, you probably won’t find many alpha males or fainting females.

The Not Quite series is a harem/reverse harem urban fantasy series of novellas (between 35,000-45,000 words) and contains the following:

*adult language, and lots of it

*moderate levels of violence/gore/action

*graphic sexual situations

*polyamory/ multiple lovers

*LBGTQ and straight themes (the main character is intersex and will have both male and female lovers, and this is a harem, so expect M/F, M/M, F/F, MMMFF etc.)

*as usual, my characters all have their own emotional scars. This means the book MAY contain mentions of abuse, unpleasant situations, etc. Please do not read if you are triggered by things like this.

Title: Queen Takes Sunfires
Series: Their Vampire Queen, 11
Author: Joely Sue Burkhart
Length: 80 pages

Genre: Romance / Paranormal / Vampires / Poly

Notes: So far, I've been Team Shara over the other queens, but I've been looking forward to this book. Sunfires were a part of the bad guys in Shara's storyline and I'm intrigued how this will turn out.

Blurb: A Vampire Queen's Secret Baby

I awoke in a pile of garbage in a dark alley with no memory of what happened to me or even who I am. All I know is my name, Karmen. By the vicious scars on my body, I've been through hell and lived to tell about it. Barely.

In the hospital, my memory slowly begins to return. Something is after me. It's not safe. I have to get away. But I don't know who to trust. Certainly not the man who left me in the alley. He smelled like a wolf. Or the doctor, who asks me if I'm even human.

Then the doctor drops a bombshell. I'm pregnant. And I have no idea who the father is.

Only that his monsters hunt me in the burning light of day.

Title: Space Fox
Series: (G-Force Federation Book 1)
Author: LM Brown
Length: 202 pages

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Shifters / Gargoyles / mpreg

Notes: I Love Brown's sci-fi books. I can't wait to see what she has in store.

Blurb: Protecting his shifter from threats is easy, but can he protect him from his own ambition?

As part of the G-Force Federation, gargoyle Jude is a newly promoted pilot eager to prove himself on his first solo assignment. Unfortunately, his plans go awry when his craft is shot down, leaving him stranded in the desert.

Kirby is a fennec fox shifter on the desert world of Cairo. When Jude’s ship comes under attack he races to help him, and after the crash he offers to guide him back to the base.

Their journey across the harsh desert is fraught with dangers, one of which is the lure of Kirby’s scent as he goes into heat for the first time. Jude’s protective attitude towards him pushes all the right buttons with Kirby, and it doesn’t take much for him to persuade the gargoyle to be his first lover.

When Kirby discovers he is pregnant they know one of them will have to make a sacrifice if they want to raise their baby together, but can either of them give up everything they have ever known?


Space Fox is Book One in the multi-author G-Force Federation mpreg, scifi series. Each book in the series can be read in any order. Join the G-Force Federation gargoyle warriors as they embark on their mission to protect and serve the Federation and possibly find their fated mates.

Title: The Rebel's Mate
Series: Blue Solace, 7
Author: CW GRay
Length: 230 pages

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Fantasy / mpreg / Angst-Free / 

Notes: I'm re-listening to this series now. It's fun and cute and adorable and angst-free. I'm sad to see the series come to an end but excited to see what the author has up her sleeve.

Blurb: Welcome back to Charybdis Station and the crew of the Blue Solace: (Seventh Book in the series)

Finn Sterling is still adjusting to becoming the lieutenant of the blue fleet of Charybdis Station. As an orphan on Cardinal Hold, he never imagined he would have a position of authority as an adult and the trust his friends put in him makes failure impossible. When he is given the monumental task to find a large number of missing Vextonians, he'll take all the help he can get. When Finn's journey brings him to his mate, he discovers that finding the missing is only one part of the quest ahead of him.

Aiden Crow has spent the last year consumed with grief and his search for vengeance. When he meets Finn, he knows instantly that the man is his mate, but what could he possibly offer the beautiful, smiling Cardinal? As the search for the missing draw the two men together, Crow realizes that the greatest risk he faces is losing his heart.

Crow and Finn must work together to gather information so they can find the innocent before they are lost forever.

Author's Note: 55,000 words. This is a sci-fi/fantasy, m/m love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, a little sex, mpreg, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. 18+ readers only, please. It is also the seventh book in a series that is best read in order. Read "The Mercenary's Mate," "The General's Mate," "The Soldier's Mate," "The Lieutenant's Mate," "The Engineer's Mate," and "The Captain's Mate" first!

Title: The Dragon Mistress Book 4
Series: (The Eburosi Chronicles 11)
Author: R.A. Steffan
Length: 333 pages

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Dragons / Poly / 


Blurb: We ran away, but it didn’t solve our problems.Now, we’re going back to fight for Aristede.

And oh, yeah—there’s also the small matter of toppling Rayth’s corrupt younger brother from the Utrean throne, so we can remove the bounty on our dragons’ heads. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

As the king’s eldest son, Rayth grew up expecting to rule. Instead, he ended up disgraced and exiled. When he unknowingly stumbled upon the last five dragon eggs in existence, using the creatures to take back his crown was the last thing on his mind.

All that changed after Rayth’s brother Oblisii murdered their father and stole the kingship. With that fateful blow, what started out as a simple rescue mission to find our lost comrade has become something much more.

We won’t be safe until Oblisii is dead, and dragons are once more protected in the land of Utrea. To make that happen, we’ll have to risk everything in a desperate gamble to control the throne.

In the end, I just want my family back.
I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

* * *

The Dragon Mistress: Book 4 by USA Today bestseller R. A. Steffan is the last installment in a medium-burn fantasy romance series with dragonriders, where the heroine doesn’t have to pick one person at the end. It is part of the Eburosi Chronicles, along with The Horse Mistress and The Lion Mistress. It’s not necessary to have read any of the other books in the series before starting The Dragon Mistress arc.

A special note for Fantasy readers: herein, you will find explicit sex scenes, not all of which are heterosexual. If your gut reaction to that is “Eww” or even “Meh,” you probably won't enjoy this series.

Title: Alluvial
Series: Valos of Sonhadra, 1
Author: Amanda Milo
Length: 162 pages

Genre: Romance / Sci-Fi / Aliens / Dragons (that look like trees) / MFMMM

Notes: This I have read. It was fun and not dark like I expected since the word torture is in the blurb. I liked the re-imagining of dragons.

Blurb: Someone’s using me as leverage against my family. I was your average citizen, innocent of any crime worth going to prison for, and yet here I am.

But this isn’t a regular prison ship.



They alter me. And when the ship crashes on an alien planet, some of my new abilities come in quite handy—it’s the side effects that aren’t entirely welcome.

Not by me, anyway. The tribe of aliens that have taken me captive?
They don’t seem to mind.

~The Valos of Sonhadra series is the shared vision of nine scifi and fantasy romance authors. Each book is a standalone with a guaranteed Happy Ever After and can be read in any order.~
**Note: Explicit content, sexual situations, and language warning. 44K word novel.
