Sophite adja Jerella Montegro has crossed the length of the Sangrah Provinces to connect with a Unarion she's only communicated with in her mind. Hunted by the theocrats on an order of execution, she has risked everything to come to the aid of the psychic sect she's only heard of in stories. To bring them into the rebel fold with the Sophites and Drumas, it's worth any price--including her life.
Unarion psychic Veric has spent the last few years mourning the betrayal of his lover, Keis, to the theocratic guards. Now, with the construction of a tower near the borders of his homeland, and the rift of a nexus opening in the city of Rimfel, he needs Jerella's help to defeat the theocrats and their sinister plans once and for all.
Guard General Keis has given his all to the uniform he wears if only to bring his secret agenda to fruition. With Jerella and Veric in his crosshairs, he can't lose. For what's the promise of the future without a few sacrifices? But what's his future without Jerella and Veric?

Bateo Gunner is dead.
The treacherous bastard met his fate in a Celedon prison cell by a stroke of a very long and delicate blade. The lethal strike appears to have come from an Ashlin tiger sword, and suspicions fall to the only other person of that warrior class in the royal residence.
Stationed on the royal planet of Celedon, Ashlin Warrior Nadja Kelswan is charged with acting as liaison between her country of Vanden and the Celedon tsia. Also, to get answers from Bateo Gunner on the conspiracy that turned Jovita Rees into a weapon and now infects a good portion of the Celedon Empire. Nadja’s most important duty came from the tsia himself, to act as Prince Rohan’s personal bodyguard. It is a task she takes seriously, even as the conspiracy around them thickens.
Duty prohibits her from acting on the intense feelings she has for the tsia’s heir. Seeing his sorrow and loss over Jovita to another man, touches Nadja deeply. But the prince keeps an active sex life going with the palace whores, and Nadja fears their approaches to sexual relationships will forever clash. It is in the middle of one such intimate transaction that Nadja must save the prince from an insidious laser-guided weapon sent from within the palace walls to kill him.
Prince Rohan of Celedon has had his heart broken twice: once by the faked death of his lover, Jovita, then by her desertion to another man. Loving only one woman since childhood, it surprises him when a raven-haired Ashlin warrior haunts his dreams. She’s strong and lithe and formal. Her stagnant hazel eyes are so different than the twirling depths of a Celedon’s. Her training as an Ashlin has also made her extremely wise beyond her years. He finds solace in her counsel. By rights he should hate Ashlin Nadja for her interference in his reunion with Jovita, but he can’t seem to help himself from falling under the warrior’s spell.
Any man takes his life into his own hands to attempt a seduction with so lethal a weapon as an Ashlin warrior. Now, with everyone in the palace a suspect to murder, it is Nadja who suggests they share quarters so she can better protect him. It is the chance Rohan has been waiting for since her arrival on Celedon.
The list of crimes against Celedon continues to grow: parts are missing from shipments to outposts, security vids are tampered with and the body of Bateo Gunner is missing from the morgue. The more questions they ask the more the questions come. Amidst all the chaos a new planet sends an overture of friendship to the tsia. It is an ill-timed and suspicious request as far as Nadja is concerned.
Nadja’s suspicions are realized when Rohan is taken ill and his body infested with a newer more sinister nanite. One that replicates faster and has the power to compel the host to do whatever the programmer wishes. Torn between duty to her sword and her love for Rohan, Nadja takes up the mantle of protector to rid the palace of the conspirators once and fall all. Even if it means giving her very life to save those she’s sworn to protect.
Two hearts, many worlds, one mission.
As Wynn St. Jyles searches for the fabled Amulet of Skia among the dangerous market stalls of the Alterrian Islands, memories of her last disastrous mission to the beta dimension haunt her steps. She’s determined not to repeat the mistakes that left her with a broken heart and permanent ear damage, but this trip doesn’t look much more promising.
Particularly when she’s dragged into a dark room, robbed of her aural implant—and the face swimming in her vertigo-stricken vision is the lover who, five years ago, left her in a pool of her own blood.
Kade, an exiled prince of the realm, still carries the pain of the devastating choice that forced him to leave Wynn for dead. Now she’s in his arms again, but the last thing she wants is him. She wants only what he’s trying to protect—the amulet.
Forced to become cautious allies in a violent, inter-dimensional arms race, Wynn finds herself fighting just as hard against a rekindled desire for Kade—leaving her wondering how she can hope to control the key to the multi-dimensions when she can’t even control her own heart.
Warning: Contains pulse-pounding action, vertigo-inducing plot twists, and a love that crosses dimensions.
Jovita Rees is running for her life.
Infused with nanites to heighten her natural abilities, she has become little better than a weapon for her people. The cost of these heinous experiments was the complete erasure of her memories. With little more than just the memory of her name and the medical torture she suffered on the Celedon science colony of Theta, she stows away aboard the Vanden vessel, Guidestar, to flee the guards of Presari Station.
Once there, she tucks herself away on a ship bound for Scicia. The Vanden ambassador, First Advisor to the Regent, Mallic Telonis is taking his leave. As a known connoisseur of beautiful women and non-committed sex, Jovita thinks nothing of hiding in Mallic’s suite, hoping she can exchange sex for safe passage to Vanden.
Mallic is shocked to find a beautiful Celedon woman in his bed. Too bad that despite her offer of memorable sex, she is terrified at the very thought of his touch. He knows this by the color in her cheeks and the awkward way she moves. He is also troubled she would go through so much to offer her body for a ride across the galaxy when all she had to do was ask him for political asylum. A check into her background finds unexpected results when it comes to light Jovita Rees was not only the court psychic to the Celedon tsia, but was killed under mysterious circumstances.
Mallic returns to the Vanden palace only to find things have changed during his absence. The Paladins, Vanden’s allies in the Vanden-Telesian War, want to settle the uninhabitable region of the planet to set up an outpost. It is enough to raise suspicions with both the countries on Scicia. Add with that the fact Presari Station is now using ‘bots for security guards and the entire galaxy seems to have gone mad.
Kristabelle St. Lucus is an etheralmancer, one who can take the soul of a person and lock them away in the lovely stained glass she designs for the Portamere Cathedral. This is her punishment for daring to be born with what the clerics call “the witching talent.” The Cathedral has become a prison for those who have defied the power-hungry clerics. It is not something she wants to do, but something she must do save her family from destruction. It is either that, or watch them burn for passing an unholy legacy on to their offspring.
Darius Castillo is a magi--a member of the scared order who work directly for the Magus, the rightful head of the church. Darius has watched in wonder as Kristabelle works her magic. Only he knows of her torture and pain at having to perform this horrific duty for the sake of her family. Only Darius sees the tears she shows no one. Under the guise of an acolyte, he is on a mission to discover the extent of the clerics’ treachery. Nothing the clerics do can stop the burning passion he feels for the artist or the need to save her and the souls she’s been forced to entrap.
Fallen angels never have it easy. So it is with Damon Serif, who’s just landed the most difficult assignment possible—protecting his sexy neighbor, Ivy Hawthorne, from a hoard of water demons bent on making her their queen. Though keeping the smoking-hot costume designer out of evil’s clutches is something he’s trained centuries for, Damon knows the real challenge is having her close without tasting her charms and indulging in her rather unique perspectives.
Ivy’s luck is finally changing. After years of designing costumes for off-Broadway plays, she’s finally got a shot at the brass ring. But now, her sizzling neighbor is following her around the city, insisting she’s the target of a demonic conspiracy. What’s more, his mere touch causes her body to climax with an intensity of which she’d only dreamed.
When Damon and Ivy connect, even the demons feel the heat, because together they are...Hotter Than Hell.

The fact Archer has made it his mission to help her put her life back together has its own advantages. But then again, Archer is only doing his job.
