When an independent deep-space scout crash-lands on an unknown alien world, the last thing she expects is to find herself claimed by a barbarian warrior. Aurina Phoenix spends most of her time zooming through uncharted space and gathering intel for her family's deep-space convoy, but her life takes an unexpected detour when a meteor shower brings down her ship. She finds herself on a barren, low-tech planet inhabited by dangerous beasts...and lands in the arms of a brawny barbarian warlord. 
Markarian warrior Kavon Mal Dor is known for his skill in battle. He lives to protect his clan...and to avenge the murder of his father. Every move he makes is part of his grand plan for revenge, including finding a legendary sword and marrying a warlord's daughter. But when a beautiful skyflyer crashes into his world, she is the one thing he never counted on. 
Fighting their incendiary attraction, Aurina and Kavon make a deal: she'll help him find the sword and in return, he'll give her the emergency beacon she needs to get home. But as the search for the sword plunges them into a dangerous adventure they find themselves consumed by a powerful passion and questioning everything they've ever wanted. 
Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think rival warlords, dangerous beasts and lost mines), cool offsiders (sexy alien warriors and overprotective brothers) and a steamy romance (lots of sexy times between two strong-willed people). This is treasure hunting sci-fi style. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

 A deep-space convoy master who demands everyone follow his rules...and the stowaway scam artist who's never met a rule she wouldn't break.
Dare Phoenix runs his convoy with absolute control. In uncharted space, lives depend on it. When one plain, dowdy woman comes aboard, his gut tells him that something is off about her. Soon there are assassins on his ship, sabotage, and people dying, and Dare discovers his drab passenger is definitely not what she seems. Instead, he uncovers a smart-mouthed scam artist who defies him at every turn.

Dakota Jones is a survivor. Life has taught her that if you don't grab what you want, someone else will snatch it away. Tired of having nothing, she's stolen a map to the location of an immense lost treasure from Earth and she's going to find it. Okay, so maybe stealing the map from a deadly terrorist group wasn't her best decision, but now she just needs to dodge their crazy followers, hide out on the Phoenix Convoy, and find a way to decode the map. Easy, right? Wrong. As soon as she sets eyes on the sexy, in-charge Dare Phoenix, she knows she's made a terrible mistake.

Dare and Dakota strike sparks at every turn...but with her life in danger, she reluctantly agrees to join forces with Dare to find the treasure. But every step of their adventure is dogged by danger, and the biggest threat they face is getting burned by their incendiary attraction. On this hunt, they will find themselves going beyond their depths, tested to their limits, and deep in uncharted territory.

Former Navy SEAL and CIA agent Ronin Cooper is used to living his life in the darkness. A loner by nature, he enjoys his work at Treasure Hunter Security, stays busy on the road, and never lets anyone too close. That is until he notices a mystery redheaded woman spying on him and his colleagues. Then he finds himself sucked into a dangerous rescue mission to Antarctica with a fiery, outspoken woman who pushes every one of his buttons.

She wants to believe Treasure Hunter Security can help, and soon finds herself facing off with the dark, intense, enigmatic Ronin.

As their mission takes them into the frigid ice and snow of Antarctica, Peri and Ronin’s intense attraction generates a lot of heat. Drawn irresistibly closer, they work to track down Silk Road and Peri’s sister, but what they find buried in the ice could threaten everything.

Q & A with the Author 

Q - How would you describe Treasure Hunter Security?

A - Treasure hunting Navy SEAL style! I like to call this my Indiana Jones romance series. All the books star tough, sexy former Navy SEALs who now work for Treasure Hunter Security. Dangerous archeological digs – no problem. Daring expeditions – sure thing. Museum security for invaluable exhibits – easy. Each book has a fast, fun thrill-ride adventure set in some exciting locales.

Q - Why did you want to write the series? 

A - I love action, adventure and romance. I have also always been a huge fan of ancient history. In Treasure Hunter Security, I get to combine my passions: action, adventure, sexy romance and some real-life history, myths and legends. I do *a lot* of research for these books. Each story explores some ancient myth or legendary treasure and takes us to something thrilling locations: from the desert sands of Egypt to the dense jungles of Cambodia to the cloud forests of the Andes. 

Q - What order should I read the books in? 

A - All the Treasure Hunter Security books are stand-alone adventures. However, characters from the early stories do appear in later books, and there is a slight overarching story with the black-market antiquities thieves our heroes face. So I think it adds something to the reading experience to read them in order. Here's the order I suggest: 

Treasure Hunter Security

Book 1 – Undiscovered (Declan and Layne’s story)
Book 2 – Uncharted (Callum and Dani’s story)
Book 3 – Unexplored (Logan and Sydney’s story)
Book 4 – Unfathomed (Morgan and Zach’s story)
Book 5 – Untraveled (Hale and Elin’s story)
Book 6 – Unmapped (Ronin and Peri’s story)
Book 7 – Unidentified (novella duo) – coming 2018
Book 8 – Undetected (Darcy and Agent Burke’s story)

Agent Honor Brandall enjoys her job as security agent for the Institute of Historical Preservation's expedition ships. Adventures to distant planets - awesome. Archeological digs for ancient old Earth artifacts - interesting. Keeping the archeologists safe - no problem. The fact she's tall, strong and good in a fight means most of the men she works with are intimidated by her, but she refuses to apologize for being good at her job. But on a mission to the barbarian world of Markaria, she finds herself paired with a brawny warrior who challenges her in every way.

Markarian warrior Colm Mal Kor is second-in-command to his warlord and spends his days training to hone his skills and control. He's dedicated to defending his clan...and to hiding the deadly secret he can never share with anyone. But when he's thrust into working with a beautiful, challenging skyflyer, Colm finds a wild attraction he never expected and the biggest risk to his hard-earned control that he's ever encountered.

On an expedition to Markaria's icy moons, Honor and Colm work side by side, but the ice and snow aren't enough to stop them from wanting each other. As their mission takes a deadly turn, they must trust each other to survive, but it isn't just wild beasts and ferocious enemies that are a danger... Colm is harboring something inside him that is far more lethal...something that might destroy them all.
