(Starfighter Training Academy, #2)
Publication date: June 15th 2021
Genres: Adult, Romance, Science Fiction
I’m ob-sessed with the game.
I spend so many hours playing that I dream about dangerous missions on otherworlds...and my gorgeous, in-game training partner, Kassius. That is, until I win. I beat the Starfighter Training Academy.
But is it a game? Or alien software designed to recruit new, unsuspecting sol-diers for a war in another star system? Because when my hot as heck alien shows up at my workplace demanding I leave Earth and travel to the Vega system? What? When he informs me it’s my duty to fight Queen Raya and the Dark Fleet? Claims hewants me as much as I’ve craved him? Let’s just say things get crazy.
Facing the truth is never easy, but when I arrive at the Elite Starfighter base I learn that Kassius cheated the system, hacked into the game, and lied to everyone on two worlds to make me his.
Now who’s obsessed?
I wiped my hands down my black pants, my palms suddenly damp. The eleva-tor ride to the first floor felt like an eternity as I made my way to the public meeting room I’d instructed this Kassius Remeas be escorted to. My high heels clicked rhyth-mically against the hard floor and I straightened my suit jacket, buttoned up the twolarge black buttons as if I were putting on armor. I arrived to stare at the closed door, hand shaking as I lifted my knuckles to knock.
Before I could knock again, the door opened, smacking against the wall and bouncing back a few inches. I jumped, startled. Then I stared. And stared. There, standing before me, was a really good likeness of Kass. Someone had gone all out. This guy had the same dark hair. The same crooked smile. The same small scar under his left eye. The same dark brown eyes. The same damn dimples that made him look like a mischief making, super-sexy space pirate.
He was dressed head to toe in black, the cut and tailoring exactly matched the in-game uniforms of a Starfighter MCS, but he had no adornments or anything else that indicated he was in the military. Any military. And fool that I was, my gaze darted to his chest to look for the Starfighter insignia. Which was there. Black on black, but the damn swirl was there. I even recognized the buckles on his boots.
What the hell? This space alien uniform was absurd. Laughable, which meant I was the brunt of the joke now for the half second my heart leapt and my body tight-ened as if he was real. Two heartbeats later the stupid organ ached ten times more than it had before as the leap of joy crashed back into the pit of despair. Because this man absolutely was Kassius Remeas, in the flesh.
So, was this man a model? Maybe the game developer had placed him in front of a green screen and based the avatar of Kassius Remeas on this man. Maybe I was hallucinating and a pimply-faced teen with a half-grown mustache and gangly legs was staring back at me. Perhaps the stress of the job had finally sent my men-tal health into a tailspin.
But I couldn’t tear my eyes off him. Fuck that, I couldn’t blink. Or breathe.
“Mia Becker.” He didn’t say more but inspected me with the same intense scru-tiny I gave him.
I wasn’t going to call him Kass. It would hurt too much. Uttering that one sylla-ble meant that I was buying into the entire joke. And I felt that it was all on me.
Without tearing his eyes away, he pulled me into the room and pushed the door shut behind me. He even reached around me to turn the lock. The sounds of the reception desk, security checkpoints and scattered voices dropped away, mak-ing us very much alone. The room was sealed and searched every morning for sur-veillance equipment. The walls were thick and there were no windows. We were truly alone.
I still didn’t speak and he narrowed his eyes. Then he closed the distance be-tween us, gently placed his hands on each side of my head and kissed me.
For a second I froze because a paid actor, or model–a complete stranger–was kissing me. With soft lips. With a need I felt seep through his fingers, his mouth. Ev-ery inch of him radiated with need. For me.

(The Montana Men, #1)
Publication date: June 7th 2021
Gen-res: Adult, Romance, Western
Two lives cross in a fateful roadside encounter. When ranch life turns deadly, will their unexpected love survive?
Addie Malory is struggling to improve the rundown farm she bought. And though she knows she can’t do it alone, she won’t tolerate men who think they can just take advantage of a single woman. Worried all her hard work will amount to nothing, both her hopes and her heart lift when she hires a hunky capable ranch hand.
Cade Brody’s past has left him broken. Drifting between rodeos after a shock-ing betrayal, he’s grateful to the pretty farm girl and her offer of a job. But after thugs vandalize the property and harass his gorgeous new boss, he puts aside his wounded heart as his protective instincts ignite.
With Addie’s dream in danger under a barrage of financially damaging attacks, she wrestles with the risk of her red-hot feelings for her rugged employee. And when his own past returns to haunt him, Cade may have to choose between pro-tecting the woman he loves and the healing reconciliation he’s wanted for years.
Nervously, she licked her lips.
His gaze dropped to her mouth, his face softened, and he leaned in a bit.
Oh God, is he going to kiss me?
Her heart rate went crazy, pounding in her ears so loudly, she was sure he would hear it. The air suddenly seemed too thin—she couldn’t get her breath as shestared up at him, completely mesmerized, wondering if his lips were as firm and warm as they looked.

She balances her free time between reading her favorite romance authors--in genres ranging from erotica and dark romance to sweet historicals and contempo-rary romance--and spending time with her family.
