His beast will have her beauty—but only on his terms.

Sirena Blaze has left a string of smiling males across the galaxy—but she’s not smiling now. After two attempts to sabotage her ship, it’s time to call for backup. Her warriors deserve the best, and that means recruiting a member of the elite Serpentian guard as co-commander.

One look at Slyde Stone, and Sirena’s smile returns. She sets out to indulge in the sensual delights for which his people are legendary.

Slyde would like nothing more than to bed the famous beauty, but a secret binds the hands that burn to take her. He is a half-dragon shifter, a race thought to be nothing more than a myth. He’s real, and so is the code he must live by—he can mate only once.

Sirena’s fury at Slyde’s refusal knows no bounds—until saboteurs loose a pair of deadly serpents on board the Orion. And the infuriating man has the gall to make a wager. If she finds them first, she can have him. But if he wins, she must agree to be his alone—for life.

Warning: Space cougar on the prowl, a handsome virgin in her sights. Hot love scenes, and even hotter dragon shape-shifting. (156 pages)

She can kill with her bare hands … but what will the lethal beauty do to his heart?

She's a half-human, half-Serpentian warrior who'll guard his ship with her life. He's the tough, war-seasoned captain of the Orion. But in their battle of hearts, it's winner take all.

The Orion Series, Book 2

**Author's Note: This book was previously published in 2009**

As a member of the legendary Serpentian guard, Tessa Alligon has been trained to kill, with her bare hands if necessary. And with her legs? She can take a strong man where no man's gone before. But when Captain Craig walks into the first Orion crew briefing, Tessa falls head over heels. Now to get the handsome commander to see how perfect they could be together.

Captain Steve Craig is a Space Forces veteran on his first peace-time assignment. The bridge of the huge, sleek space ship Orion is just what his battle-weary soul needs. But the alluring females in his ship's guard are strictly off limits … until PTSD knocks out this tough, ex-soldier, and Tessa is there to catch him.

Their first embrace flames hot enough to heat the cold of deep space. But Craig knows the liaison is a mistake, and one he can't afford to make again. Too bad he now has a hissing viper by the tail--one with revenge on her mind. Tessa aims to show him she's not a woman to be trifled with, and she doesn't mind doing it in front of the entire crew.

When Steve learns a saboteur is hiding on board his ship, perhaps even in the Orion's ships guard, he now wonders … is Tessa merely a woman scorned? Or is she the saboteur he must stop at all costs?

Until the night his ex-girlfriend knocks on his door.

Brynne Polson remembers dying. She can't believe she has another chance at life with her hot, brooding boyfriend ... except Gray doesn't seem all that thrilled to have her back, they're far from home, and she has a strange female voice in her head. And just how does a woman gain ten pounds while she's dead, anyway?

E'ea, a Galactic Guardian, brought back Gray's true love from the dead. In Brynne's body, she'll keep him safe from the assassins who want to stop his painting before he reveals any more of the future, then leave the couple together. There's just one problem--neither of them seem to appreciate her efforts. She must keep them alive and show them their importance in the future of the galaxy. At least this backward little planet has cheeseburgers.

In space, there are even more ways to lose your lover

She lost everything . . .

Ilya Mondas once lived her dream—life with a band of space gypsies wandering the wild plains of Frontiera, the freedom to use her tech savvy to wreak mayhem on pirates and slavers, and her big, soft-spoken warrior Var, who adored her. Then she lost him, and the life she loved.

She’ll do anything to get it all back . . .

Now on her own, she must take over The Pleasure Palace, a ragtag space-station casino, home to hookers, gamblers and rogues. But one or all of them want her dead, and they have the monsters to do it—human-cyborg gladiators, created for the illegal fight ring hidden deep in the center of her new home. Where the biggest, baddest cyborg of all looks eerily like her dead husband.

But can she trust anyone again?
