Through Uncharted Space

 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.

Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think assassins, space terrorists, underwater adventures), cool offsiders (some sexy brothers) and a steamy romance (lots of sexy times between a bossy man and a smart-mouthed scam artist). This is treasure hunting sci-fi style. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

His career plan never included becoming one of the galaxy's most infamous treasure hunters. And it certainly never included his one weakness: Nera Darc.

Astro-archeologist Niklas Phoenix loved his job studying and safeguarding artifacts at the Institute of Historical Preservation...until he learned that it was all a lie. Forced out of the Institute, he joins his treasure hunter brothers, but now the Institute is trying to lure him back for the ultimate treasure hunt--a return to the planet that seeded life throughout the galaxy. But only one thing convinces him to go--his deadly, seductive rival has joined the expedition.

Dangerous and enigmatic, Nera Darc has made a life for herself where she calls the shots and bows to no one. Niklas Phoenix has become her dark obsession and on the lethal mission to Earth, they are compelled to join forces to survive. But Niklas threatens to tear down Nera's internal walls and melt the ice around her heart...but she knows caring for someone is just a weakness others can exploit.

As Nik and Nera strip away each other's secrets, a brilliant passion is unleashed, but the dangers of Earth strike from every side, and a darker enemy is closing in.

Treasure hunters, dangerous desert planet, wild beasts, and deadly thieves—the only thing standing between her and danger is one lethal man who might be more dangerous than them all.

With a secret map in hand, astro-archeologist Dr. Lexa Carter is excited for an expedition to a lawless desert planet in search of an invaluable old Earth artifact. She finally has her chance to prove herself to her disapproving family. But instead of adventure, she finds herself in the middle of treasure hunters, feral beasts, dangerous enemies and wild sandstorms. And her unwelcome protector is her museum’s mysterious—and frankly arrogant and annoying—new head of security, Damon Malik.

After years as a galactic spy, Damon Malik just wants a quiet job where no one tries to kill him. Instead of easy work in a museum full of artifacts, he finds himself on a backwater planet babysitting the most infuriating woman he’s ever met. Lexa might be smart and gorgeous, but Damon knows trouble when he sees it.

She thinks he’s arrogant. He thinks she’s a trouble-magnet. But among the desert sands and ruins, their treasure hunt—led by a young, brash treasure hunter named Dathan Phoenix—takes a dark turn. Someone doesn’t want them to find the treasure and they want Lexa and Damon dead. Damon isn’t sure if he wants to strangle Lexa or kiss her, but they will need to work together to have any chance of surviving among galactic ruins.

Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think desert ruins, dangerous animals and freak sandstorms), sexy treasures hunters and a steamy romance (lots of sexy times between a smart archeologist and a mysterious former spy). This is treasure hunting sci-fi style. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

Book Three of THE PHOENIX ADVENTURES series, and winner of 2015 Prism Award for Best Futuristic Romance.

Unlucky-in-love salvage mechanic, Malin Phoenix, didn't intend to get caught up in a coup and kidnapped by a sexy cyborg. But she finds herself swept into an adventure to help the deadly, emotionless CenSec, Xander Saros, retrieve an ancient Terran artifact and save his planet.

Soon she's racing across uncharted space and is magnetically drawn to the cyborg whose strong arms and muscled body ignite a desire that burns brighter than a supernova. But Mal can never let herself forget that she can't fall in love with a cyborg who can never love her back.

The crowning glory of the Centax Security program, Xander is heavily enhanced, his emotions dampened to nothing to allow him to be the most efficient, lethal killer in the galaxy. As he and Malin hunt for the remnant of the galaxy's first computer, the Antikythera Mechanism, their quest leads them into the lair of a dangerous technomancer. But Xander can't identify his greatest threat--the enemy or the fascinating woman who's making him feel.

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.
