Wanted by the black market cartel, Lisa has come out of hiding to find her missing twin brother. She's carrying top-secret biotechnology that has both the cartel and the law hot on her tail. An alien pirate captain with smoldering eyes and a rock-hard body is the last distraction she needs—but he's also her only hope of escape...
An evil galactic corporation destroyed Captain Qaiyaan’s home world, and with no females left, his fleet has turned to piracy and revenge. The last thing he thought he’d find on a derelict passenger ship is an alluring human female carrying a solution to his race's salvation. And he definitely never expected the feisty ex-con to worm her way into his heart.
Together, they must fend off alien bounty hunters and keep their bucket-of-bolts ship from falling apart. Yet the greatest danger of all might come in the form of a single, passionate kiss. Will the very technology that allows them to be together end up ripping them apart?
Content warning: Explicit love scenes, superhero aliens, and heart-pounding action. This steamy sci-fi thriller is intended for mature audiences.
Then one day, her foul-mouthed, free-spirited, 90's-kitsch-wearing girlfriend Melody disrupts everything. She introduces her to a cynical, burned-out former teacher, who teaches them the things no longer taught in school. Poetry. Critical thinking. Human connection.
But these lessons draw the attention of EduForce, the massive corporation with a stranglehold on education. When they show how far they are willing to go keep their customers obedient, Jennifer has to decide what is most important to her and how much she is willing to sacrifice for it.
Private Investigator Hannah Franklin's life is turned upside down after being contacted by a former employee of MAX Home Security, the leader in security services. But they're not just protecting people anymore. Hannah's informant claims to have proof that MAX has ordered the assassination of politicians who stood against the corporation.
When her informant is killed and an attempt is made on her life, Hannah has no choice but to contact a freelance hacker. Her only hope now lies in the hands of a man she never expected to welcome back into her life.
Ian Bradley has lost his girlfriend and his job, as well as having acquired a very annoying gnome. Now his ex, Hannah, is in danger, and she needs his help. Ian vows to protect Hannah with every resource available to him—and as a technomage in a high-tech world, his resources are endless...
The very profitable pharmaceutical behemoth Forever Life, Inc. was ready to start Human trials using a new wonder drug that was going to liberate the world. Every disease known – cured. Every handicap or birth defect – eliminated. You don’t like your hair texture? Your eye color? Skin color? Height? One small pill taken at night, a short drug induced coma, and several days later – a new you. The problem was that Pete feared this new pill would lead to the extinction of humankind. This meant he had to stop Forever Life at any cost. Any. Cost. Which, included his life . . . again . . . and again . . . and again . . .
After some strange, but short rituals are completed, Royston Bustwick begins to preside over the agenda under a classical architectural feature – the painted dome of the Dominus Regis. He is depicted in a similar to the way Christ might have sat with his twelve apostles at the Last Supper. From here, on this day - he rules the state. A vote is taken to keep Governor Graves on life-support. This allows Bustwick to maintain dual roles and powers, as he fills in for Graves whilst his coma continues, as it has for the last 20 months. The Exchequer has objected. He believes it costs too much to keep a lame-duck governor in a permanent coma. We surmise that Spooner has alternative motives: he dislikes Bustwick enjoying this increase in power and position. What Spooner really wants is the State-leader's job.
When Jack Spooner is invited to take some meeting bread from a tray, it casts a shadow over the Exchequer as a potential ‘Judas’ figure. Commodore Petersen has informants everywhere throughout the Capital, who keep an eye on Spooner. The Exchequer as the anti-hero has begun to oppose the Docklands building project. As the meeting progresses, the oligarchs appear less worried than he, that the cost blow-outs can be contained by Sir Percy, Director-General Fagan and their officials within the Infrastructure and Tourism Bureau.
Dirk van Ritter – is discussed, especially his antics at Sir Percy’s gala-ball where he became the ping-pong champion at that charity event, held at St. Dandy’s - back in December 2025. The oligarch’s are raucous at hearing he might be a genuine ’foot-washer’. One who is attracted to washing the feet of others, possibly as a fetish, or possibly as an act of genuine service – we do not know. But if he is one, the oligarchs decide they want him to wash their feet, the next time they engage in that ritual.
Readers are introduced to the Attorney-General, Reginald Thudmore. He stands to propose a maverick plan to feed 5,000 citizen’s at some 12 sittings per day. After the great economic crash, millions have been turned out of the Capital into debt-internment camps. He is compelled to want to feed them more productively. He proposes to fund the compulsory acquisition of some ‘faster-food’ outlets. His slide show explains to the oligarchs how they are able to dispose of vehicles, and have the citizens lined up instead - in rows to get a meal. The proposal is met with enthusiasm and is finally passed by them.
In a dystopian near future, New York City has become the epicenter of decadence—gambling, the flesh trade, a playground for the wealthy. And underneath? Crime, fueled by “Dead Bolt,” a destructive designer drug. This New City is where Nox Boyet leads a double life. At night, he is the Vigilante, struggling to keep the streets safe for citizens abandoned by the corrupt government and police. During the day, he works in construction and does his best to raise his adopted teenaged son, Sam.
A mysterious letter addressed to Sam brings Nox in direct contact with “model” Cade Creel, a high-end prostitute working at the Iron Butterfly Casino. Suspicion gives way to an intense attraction as dark figures from Nox’s past and the mysterious peddlers of Dead Bolt begin to descend—and put all their lives in danger. When things spin out of control, Cade is the only person Nox can trust to help him save Sam.

Mara Gorki is a successful crime novelist trying to keep her lesbian relationship a secret. Horrified by what is happening in the country, she seldom leaves her apartment, attempting to create a private universe where she and her lover can hide.
But the external world comes crashing in when Mara is conscripted into The Hunt. Mara enters the contest determined to elude her pursuers, but the consequences of failure are too terrifying to contemplate.
Surrounded by the destruction of the human race, Euan, Nick, and Kira find solace in one another, making their underground bunker a haven and a home. Sheltered under layers of steel and cement, they should be safe, but danger isn't always kept outside – sometimes the enemy is within.
When their electronic warning system detects intruders, Euan and Nick must investigate. Outside, they discover the true terror that is approaching, and Euan must make a terrible decision: stay or go. To stay is to watch the only people he loves perish under the weight of pure evil. To leave is to face his certain death to protect them and potentially save humankind.
Despite all his preparation, skills, and strength, Euan knows that each decision carries the risk that he could destroy them all.
The second book in the Refuge Trilogy.
Family is worth fighting for—and family doesn’t always mean blood.
No one knows what calamity poisoned the earth and decimated the human population, but living close to the toxic ground means illness and death. Justin is determined to keep his twin sister and younger brother from that fate—no matter what he has to do. To earn enough to keep his family safe in a high-rise, Justin enlists in a deadly sport called Shadow Fray. He quickly finds himself in over his head, especially when he is scheduled to face the most dangerous player.
Hale—who competes as Black Jim—knows he won’t be on top forever, despite his skills. He fights for a better life for his daughter, but his time is running out as Shadow Fray becomes increasingly lethal. Something about the newest fighter intrigues him, but does he dare defy his masters to investigate? Justin and Hale will clash in the ring, while beyond it the powerful elite and the crumbling world seem determined to keep them apart. If they can find common ground, they might have a chance to fight for their futures.
Euan left his home whole, only to return broken, battered, and partially blind. He has endured the torments inflicted upon him by monster and man, but they are nothing compared to the consequences of betraying Nick and Kira. Incapacitated, he has no choice but to concede leadership to the man he considered his enemy, and is powerless as the distance between him and those he loves deepens and grows.
But his recovery time is short lived. The commander of destruction still lurks in the shadows, determined to dominate and control what is left of the human race. The final battle is upon them. They need a champion, a hero for humanity. There is no where left to run, and there is only one person who can provide the ultimate catalyst for change: A little, blonde sun–sprite, with crystal blue eyes.
Better to reign in hell....
Uriel 3019 has been a cybernetically altered angel since he volunteered for the program fifteen years ago. His devotion to the floating city of Heaven is fierce, and he’ll follow any command he’s given. But Uriel’s orderly world is crumbling. Angels are going mad, even hurting people. Some are rebelling, and the noble families are vying for control—by any means necessary.
Uriel’s latest assignment brings him into a secret society, where his partner, Raphael, is working for freedom and equality for all angels. Could their group be responsible for the angels’ recent erratic behavior? Uriel is determined to find out—and report on his findings. But he doesn’t count on Raphael’s confession—that he has feelings for Uriel—or the memories slowly starting to return from the time before he became an angel.
Is he on the right side? Does he dare to stand against Heaven, even if doing so will save his fellow angels from becoming soulless automatons? Uriel has to decide if his loyalty belongs to his superiors... or to the angel who’s stolen his heart.
A wanted man after the destruction of the Iron Butterfly Casino, Nox Boyet must flee the island of Manhattan—the only home he's ever known. Together with Cade, Sam, and the rest of their ragtag group, Nox must find a place to hide from the District Police and the violent group of unknown drug dealers on his tail.
The solution—the Creel family farm in South Carolina.
But home isn’t quite sweet for Cade, the prodigal son. As Cade struggles with his own secrets, shadows of the past threaten not only Nox’s life, but his relationship with his son, Sam.
Nox knows there will never be peace unless he finds the answers to all his questions—and the answers lie back on the island. Cade and the others must choose their paths—find safety or follow the Vigilante into the darkness of the city? The city where Nox will come face-to-face with the past.
In a state of reverie, an impractical idea of world peace has given birth to a culture in which the human race has chosen to live free of violent criminals. Instead, criminals have been systematically exiled to the lone prison city, Katingal, constructed in a far corner of Earth. Sentenced for the remainder of their natural lives, the wicked pit themselves against their soulless brethren. Exposure, disease, and starvation claim their victims daily. Those who survive nature’s wrath negotiate the perils of the prison city through murder and cannibalism. All the while, this inimitable death sentence satisfies civilization’s aim to punish the world’s irretrievable outcasts.
Charles “Yäbälay” Gravo is the criminal mastermind behind the world’s largest human trafficking network. As a prime most-wanted fugitive, he sets into motion events that will forever alter the realities of both civilization’s Utopia and Katingal’s Hell.
Eight people still breathing in a Dead Zone - how many can cheat Fate twice?
Trapped in the same city isolation area, curiously immune to a terrifyingly swift pandemic that has left corpses and suspicion in its wake, they face the same harrowing ultimatum: believe the media and report to a 'quarantine centre’, or believe their own eyes and attempt escape...
Their lives, and possibly all humanity, depend on them getting it right.
Fear of Misery is a vivid urban dystopian thriller, set in a London of the near future where resource shortages, overpopulation and climate change have seriously impacted the fabric of society.

Join this achingly portrayed band of everyday survivors on their dark, nail-biting journeys through vacant streets, disturbing questions, desperate losses and redeeming loves.
Would you make the same choices to save yourself or others?
If you can handle the fast-pace and compelling suspense then Fidelio's thought-provoking future-tech tale is right up your street.

This is the world of Glass Shore, a dynamic existence featuring fierce vehicles, cruel weapons and serious body augmentation.
Manhattan, 2076. The fabled city of gold realised; a city of dazzling buildings and beautiful people; a city celebrated for converting an obsolete subway system into an adult playground. Manhattanite Nikki’s life changes forever when she finds the files labelled ‘Project Blue Book appendix 63-A’. The report contains a disc related to the Glass Shore, the horrendous nuclear event at Puget Sound in 2062. Disclosure of these files is not an option, so powerful people want Nikki dead. To protect her Nikki hires Apollo, her long-time friend and lover, who is magnificent at his job. He is also a clothes whore with an honest enthusiasm for life.
Nikki and Apollo are the hottest couple in Manhattan. Betrayed by friends at every turn, set upon by bounty hunters and other elements of security, law enforcement and civil protection, they utilise the best hotels, the sexy Underground and the glorious city of Manhattan as their shield.
There’s only one solution for a nasty case of writer’s block, and that’s murder. Specifically, that of one Mercy McCabe, a cunning SoHo art dealer who was once our Latina narrator’s rival for the scrumptious Bebe. When she discovers that McCabe has squandered Bebe’s affections after stealing her away, revenge is not enough: she must admit her guilt, sentence herself, and beg for her own execution, Soviet-style.
In the all-too-terrifyingly-familiar America of Heartland, the inconceivable has become ordinary: corruption and greed at the top have led to mass starvation in the heartland; hordes of refugees have escaped from resettlement camps and attack the cities; a puritanical Caliphate has toppled Constantinople, with America in its sights. Meanwhile, escaping her New York life in disguise, our heroine lures McCabe to her home turf: a hilltop house in the Great Plains where her parents worked as domestic servants. Her nemesis, though, is slippery, and McCabe disappears, threatening to ruin a homicidal masterplan so detailed as to be akin to love.
Heartland is a hilarious, genre-defying debut that confronts taboos of race, assimilation, and sex through a high-voltage tale of love, language, and revenge.

GENUS is a time of genetic selection and enrichment - life chances come on a sliding scale according to wealth. For some there is no money or choice, and an underclass has evolved; London's King's Cross, or The Kross as it is now known, has become a ghetto for the Unimproved. In The Kross, the natural, the dated, the cheap and the dull, live a brittle and unenviable existence. But unrest is growing; tension is mounting and a murderer is abroad in these dark quarters...

Simon, a convicted serial killer of the rich, undergoes treatment at a fledgling private criminal rehabilitation firm, IVRRAC. Simon is then sent to the alpine village of Trentsworth, a town full of rich socialite women, to ascertain whether he is cured of his murderous impulses or not. During his stay in Trentsworth, Simon falls in love with his neighbour, Kyndrea, the only child of a rich widower. After a time he realises there is no way she would be able to love him due to his past. Through this anguish he discovers that the rehabilitation process has failed and he is still able to exact his revenge with dramatic and unexpected results. During the aftermath of his actions he is informed what the anagram IVRRAC stands for and the awful truth that IVRRAC has its own dark secrets and Trentsworth is not at all what it seems.
"One mistake, one tiny error in that psych report, the treatment won't hold and that will spell disaster. Suicide, massacre or most likely both! I'll stay with him and watch events carefully, but I won't be held responsible."
All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain. But ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms.
Those ruins house the corrupt and the criminal--men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. He'll defend the O'Kane gang with his life, but no fight prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.
Her innocence is undeniable, and so is their attraction. But if she wants to belong to Jas, she'll have to open herself to a world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.
BEYOND CONTROL (100,000 words, 398 pages)
Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude to become one of the most influential people in Sector Four, where the O'Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. There's nothing she wouldn't do for the gang--and for its leader. But she bows to no one, not even Dallas O'Kane.
Dallas fought to carve order out of the chaos of the sectors. Danger threatens his people, but his liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire--and no one says no to the king of Sector Four.
Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.
BEYOND PAIN (89,000 words, 350 pages)
Live fast, die young--anything else is a fantasy for Six. She's endured the worst the sectors had to throw at her, but falling in with Dallas O'Kane's Sector Four gang lands her in a whole new world of danger. They're completely open about everything, including their sexuality--but she hasn't survived this long by making herself vulnerable. Especially not to men as dominant as Brendan Donnelly.
Bren is a killer, trained in Eden and thrown to the sectors. His one outlet is pain, in the cage and in the bedroom, and emotion is a luxury he can't afford--until he meets Six. Protecting her soothes him, but it isn't enough. Her hunger for touch sparks a journey of erotic discovery where anything goes--voyeurism, flogging, rough sex. He has only one rule: he won't share her.
In Bren's arms, Six is finally free to let go. But his obsession with the man who made him a monster could destroy the fragile connection they've forged, and cost him the one thing that makes him feel human--her love.
