Resident Alien

The second novella in my Scifi Romance series, The Department of Homeworld Security is a bit more serious than the first

Resident Alien features a Sadirian soldier named Kira who’s been alone on a listening station orbiting Earth for two years. We start to see a bit of the seedy underbelly of the Coalition of Planets here with how Kira is treated by her government and with what she fears will happen to her if they discover her secrets.

I tried to balance sharing her perception and experience with keeping the light tone of the series. I think I managed okay… This one isn’t quite as light-hearted and funny as Gray Card, but what it misses in comedy it makes up for in heat. These two are… quite the affectionate couple.

We also get to meet Brendan Sloan, communications genius, who actually starts the Department of Homeworld Security and uses his substantial personal resources to get that clandestine group off the ground. It’ll be interesting when the series gets to the point that Earth governments learn that a group of civilians have banded together and are representing Earth in the first contact proceedings with other worlds 😆

Resident Alien also introduces my favorite group of “bad guy” aliens, the Tau Ceti. The Tau Ceti are still causing trouble in the worlds of the Department of Homeworld Security to this day.

Brendan has always dreamed of making alien contact. He’s about to get lucky.

Gray Card

Gray Card is the award-winning first book in my longest Scifi Romance series, The Department of Homeworld Security.

I have to be honest with you — this first book in the series is almost pure fluff (with lots and lots of heat). It’s optimistic, funny, and never gets too dark or intense. It’s also nice and short. Most people can read it in about an hour or two. I absolutely designed it that way on purpose.

Have you ever wanted to read a book and just let your brain shut down and watch the pretty pictures and have fun and feel good and then end up feeling even better when you’re done? That’s what I was aiming for with this book.

It has 50’s Scifi movie references. It has cool spaceships. It has a super-hot hero and an ultra-strong heroine and lots and lots of explicit… “affection” 😉 It is silly and weird and entertaining.

And most importantly, it’s filled with awesomely terrible puns.

What’s not to love?

Is he after her heart or her planet?

Forbidden Instinct

Any time I look back on Forbidden Instinct, I ask myself the same question. Why the heck haven’t I done more with this series?

I absolutely love it, have the second book halfway written, and have the rest of the series mapped out. Plus, I’ve received some of the absolutely best feedback about this series.

So, why haven’t I done more? The answer is… complicated.

Honestly? This series has a huge amount of potential, and I think that scares me. I know, it’s ridiculous and I should just push through and write it, but I really want to do this right. I haven’t given up on it, even though it’s been on the shelf for a while, and I’m actually still working on it in the background.

I will return full-heartedly to this series someday soon, I hope! And it will be epic…

To save the world, she’ll sacrifice anything—even the man she loves.
