On the remote border world of Dusk, the Dusk Diplomatic Corps serves their planet as diplomats and aristocrats. A bombshell lands on the Corps when Terra sends a request for negotiations to begin mining the planet's most vital resource: magickstone, a uniquely rare element that allows those exposed to it to use magick and to live an unusually prolonged and vital life. Olivia Gunnarson and her lover, Merrick Grissom, believe Terra's real reason for wanting to mine magickstone is their desire for a new and devastating weapon of galactic conquest.
On Terra, Marine Corps Colonel Pedro Silva is dispatched as part of the Terran diplomatic team to serve as a military attaché. En route, he is advised of the unthinkable: The sitting head of the DDC, Ambassador Nils Trelawney, has been assassinated. A new and untested diplomat, Olivia Gunnarson, has been tasked to take his place. What Pete doesn't count on is that the outwardly demure ambassador possesses a wild streak... and her bodyguard-lover will do anything to keep his charge safe and happy. But with an assassin in the shadows and diplomatic relations between Dusk and Terra in jeopardy, will a love affair save them or destroy them all?
Sheridan Travers believes isolation is the best cure for a broken heart. In the aftermath of a messy divorce, she pulled up stakes and relocated to the last place in the country anyone would think to look for her: a small town in central Utah. Despite her best efforts, the locals are determinedly friendly. Especially Murray Young, a local politician who makes his intentions toward Sheridan more than clear.
The last thing Sheridan wants is to get involved with anyone, least of all a social climber who sees her as arm candy and an asset to his political career. During an ugly scene in the parking lot of a local supermarket, things suddenly change when an unpolished but polite stranger, Howie Wilson, steps in on her behalf. As her path keeps crossing Howie's, she begins to wonder if she should break her icy façade... or stay locked in her private Antarctica.
Never trust a faerie. Dutch has one wish, but he knows he'd better be careful who he wishes for!
New York City Homicide Detective Dutch Grunhauer and his partner Grace Mendoza have been working a case for the last thirty-six hours straight. All Dutch wants when he finally gets home is a minimum six hours sleep. But that plan flies out the window when he spots an intruder under his bed. The seriously ugly creature isn't human... and it has a seriously sexy, practically naked green-haired accomplice. With wings.
The faerie and her pet -- which appears to be the unholy offspring of a crocodile and a dingo -- are looking for lost socks. Because they got caught, the faerie has to grant Dutch one wish. But, as with all such wishes, there's a rather large catch. Dutch has three days to decide what he wants. Otherwise he, most of the people who share his Upper East Side walk-up, and the building itself could cease to exist.
Dutch knows Grace will never believe he's seeing faeries in his apartment... And as if things aren't complicated enough, the faerie's presence is doing uncomfortable things to his sense of professional boundaries. After three years, he's finally noticed his partner's a woman -- and one of the hottest women in the department. Dutch knows he'd better be careful what -- or who -- he wishes for!
