Four aliens battle Intergalactic politics to rescue the Earth women destined to become their mates.
Entwined: When tragedy claims his brother, Bane steps forward to claim the Earth woman Ariana as his own, but Keshpan law states a slave can never be a bonded mate. A political storm is brewing that may rip Ariana from his arms. Bane may be forced to walk away from everything he knows to keep the woman he loves by his side.
Cherished: Lucie and Drexyl are drawn to each other from the very first, but the Tarnans aren’t going to give her up without a fight. Will it come to an all out war between the races, or will the two lovers find another way to be together?
Surrender: All Meghan wants is to return to Earth. But before her kidnappers can sell her, she is rescued by more pirates and taken to the alien world of Tarnan, where she is told she must choose a warrior mate. Zayne isn’t sure what to make of the Earth female. The road to their union is a bumpy one, and both are left wondering if they will ever be allowed to be together as more than friends.
Fated: There is but one thing a Tourmalane prince wants above all else — his mate. When Lyros finds Roux on a floating brothel, he knows he must rescue the small human. Lyros finds he wants to shelter her, protect her, and make her his in every way. But what if all he’s feeling is lust and not the true mating pull? Just when Lyros thinks he has everything figured out, Roux gives him yet another surprise.
Happily-Ever-After has never felt so good.

has struggled all her life, never able to claw her way out of the worst
neighborhood in Los Angeles. Her loser ex-boyfriend isn’t who she thought he
was, and now she’s in deep trouble — but Christmas is the time for miracles,
and Blossom needs one now more than ever. She just doesn’t expect her miracle
to arrive in such a sexy, purple package. When the notorious alien actor
Brexton knocks on her door, she does what any rational woman would do — she
slams it in his face. Wishing for a miracle is one thing, but having the
heartthrob of Hollywood on her doorstep isn’t what she had in mind.
has always wanted a mate and family, though he’s never been blessed with
either. When he hears about a single mom who’s in trouble, he knows he can’t
leave her to face her fate. Having a door slammed in his face hadn’t factored
into his plans, but that one glimpse is enough for Brexton. He’d do anything to
get another look at the sexy female with blue hair, and a body that would
feature in all his future dreams.
danger lurking around every corner, Brexton is determined to give Blossom and
her children a Christmas they’ll always remember. Now that he has the family
he’s always wanted, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe, and hopefully
share the first of many holidays with his new mate and kids.
Brexton scowled at his manager.
“You want me to do what?”
The little human rolled her eyes.
“I want you to hand out toys to poor children,” she said.
“Because it’s Christmas and doing something good for those less fortunate will look good. You’re making a lot of money from the humans on this planet, Brexton. Christmas is the time to give alittle back.”
“I don’t understand your human
holidays.” He ran a hand through his newly cut hair. He already missed the
length, not that it was exactly short. “Which one is this? The one with the
rabbit that lays eggs?”
His human manager coughed into her
fist. “Um, no, that would be Easter. Christmas is when Santa comes to visit all
the good little boys and girls to leave gifts under the tree. Well, for those
who celebrate and believe in Santa. Or can afford to put gifts under the tree.
There are a lot of religions that celebrate during this time of year, but
Christmas with Santa is the one people seem to focus on the most.”
“What is the point of this Santa
person? If he’s giving out gifts, why do I need to?”
“Are you being serious right
now?” she asked.
He sighed. It wasn’t that he was
opposed to helping people who needed it, but he didn’t understand why toys were
important this particular month as opposed to all year long. If children needed
toys, why wait and only give them out this one time? And if those families
couldn’t afford toys, did they have food or shelter? Handing out toys didn’t
seem like it would do much of anything to really help. He’d much prefer to make
sure those families could eat a good meal, or not worry about where they were
sleeping. If Santa was giving out toys, wasn’t his money better used elsewhere?
He stared at his manager and
waited for a better explanation. Sometimes human customs baffled him.
“You are being serious, aren’t
you?” she asked, her brow furrowing. “Brexton, you’ve been on Earth for nearly
ten years and have become something of a superstar among actors. How can you
not know how Christmas works?”
He just shrugged.
“Fine. I’m going to email you the
address of a church that’s hosting an event for poor children. They’re not
calling it that, but that’s what it is. You’ll help Santa hand out toys, mingle
with everyone while they open presents and have refreshments, and then you can
go donate money to whatever charity you want. But you’re going to this event!”
“I’ll be there, even if I don’t
understand the significance,” he assured her.
“I sometimes think you don’t pay
me nearly enough,” she muttered as she walked off.
Brexton shoved his hands into his
pockets and rocked back on his heels. If Christmas was such a big deal on Earth,
then maybe he should do something for someone in need. But he didn’t have the
first clue how to go about finding someone who needed his help. He doubted the
Terran center in his hometown of Los Angeles would be of much help. While they
did hire some humans, mostly the center was staffed by his people who were
trying to better the human/alien relations. Although, some were probably like
him. On his world, he was no one. Just another warrior amongst many, and he’d
never really cared for battle. Coming here had given him a chance at a new
life, and he’d hoped it would include a mate. So far, he hadn’t found the right
woman, though plenty had tried to get him into bed.
Plenty of females flocked to him,
but he’d been warned they wanted his money or his fame and not to trust them.
He’d tried dating some of the women in his profession, but that hadn’t ended
well either. They all wanted something from him, and it wasn’t a family. Not
unless they thought giving him a family would benefit them in some way. That wasn’t
the type of mate he wanted. While he loved acting, there were times he wondered
if he’d made the right decision, or if should have stayed on his home world and
taken a chance on finding a mate through the bride program.
One of the interns who worked on
set wandered by, and Brexton reached out to stop him. What was his name?
Something with a J… Joshua!
“Joshua, if I wanted to help a
family in need, where would I go?” he asked.
“You mean like adopting a family
for the holidays?” the intern asked.
He didn’t quite understand what
that meant, but he knew the term adoption. Perhaps that was the human phrasing
for helping a family over the holidays?
“Yes. Is there an agency or a
church that would be able to give me the information I need to provide a nice
Christmas for a family who is poor?”
Joshua scratched his head. “You
could try the Department of Human Services. I know they have a lot of programs
to assist those less fortunate. Not sure you’ll get someone on the phone this
close to the holidays though.”
