Tracy St. John lives in coastal Georgia with her husband and son. You’ll often find her haunting train museums with her locomotive-loving son. Besides writing, she has also worked in video production both in front of and behind the camera. She’s usually cast as the gun-toting bad gal, getting handcuffed in the end. She has no complaints.
Engineer Velia Farrah always wanted to see an alien up close. Now that she’s assigned to study the top secret portal linking Earth to other worlds, she’ll get her chance. But when a fierce, gold-skinned alien from Risnar leaps from the portal and whisks her back to his home planet, “up close” takes on a whole new meaning.
Believing Earthlings had killed his fellow warriors, Jape Bolep is determined to destroy Earth’s access to Risnar once and for all. Grabbing a curvy handful of a human wasn’t part of the plan, but he has no intention of letting her distract him from his need for vengeance—no matter how much he aches to make her his.
Both are ready to do battle over right and wrong and good and evil, and their combustible relationship burns hotter than the sun’s surface. But distrust and treachery from all sides leave Velia and Jape in a fight against their own people to keep each other alive—and to ultimately save both Earth and Risnar from total destruction.

Only her love can redeem their crimes…if their secrets don’t get her killed.
Imdiko Conyod’s clanmates Dramok Erybet and Nobek Sletran are home from the war. However, he no longer knows these men. Changed by the horrors they’ve seen and done, they are very different people. How can he allow them to clan the traumatised Earther Rachel Hicks, whom he’s come to love so deeply? And how can he not clan her when she’s the only thing right in his life?
Erybet and Sletran keep secret the truth of the terrible crime they committed on the Earther colony of New Bethlehem. The damaged clan tries to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives with Rachel, a woman as passionate as any three men could wish for. But the murders of other Earther women mean Erybet and Sletran must face the monstrous act they thought they had left behind. Someone calling himself the Beast of New Bethlehem is murdering Earther women…and the killer may be closer to the clan’s beloved Rachel than anyone suspects.
