hair and unassuming brown eyes. The next minute he'd found himself in a
vast boundless void of light and space with no point of reference. It
was immensely peaceful with a sense of oneness and connectedness with
everything . Then he was spat out the other side, confronted by a woman
with sea-green eyes and hair the color of softly spun gold that flowed
down her back. Horror stills Michael to the core as he realizes that he
has travelled not just through space but time as well and this wondrous
woman is destined to fight to save his planet from an invasion of aliens
from the lower dimensions. Only trouble is she's going to be on the
losing side. Kiana's a warrior and her kind don't interfere with free
will or destiny."
"If I must face what I must face tomorrow though, I have something to ask of you. It may even be the reason you came.”
help him, he thought he’d sell his soul if she wanted it. “Ask away.
If there is anything I can do it would make me feel a bit less damn
helpless right at this moment.”
Kiana didn’t hesitate. If tomorrow was her doom then she wanted her moment with this amazing man. “Mate me.”
midnight her sixth sense woke Sarah. Looking up amongst the stars she
saw a strange and wondrous sight. A real UFO was coming into land due
south of her position. It was unlike any aircraft she had ever seen.
It was only because of her keen sight that she was able to make out its
almost circular shape. There were no obvious portals or windows. Its
mirror like surface sparkled like a myriad of diamonds. It wasn’t in any
stealth mode. It hovered over the land for a moment and then seemingly
disappeared straight into the earth.
Her curiosity got the
better of her. She banked her fire, gathered up her spear and her few
belongings and headed off in the direction of the UFO.
Astra wrapped the night around her, to conceal herself from any unseen prying eyes then she made her way over to their comatose bodies. She fished through pockets, photographically memorized names on drivers licenses and details of other documents she found on them. She planted small, wafer thin RFID tags deep within their wallets. Noting one guy’s well worn and assumedly much loved gold ring she carefully removed it and found a small space behind the gemstone it held. Just big enough to hide a small, almost transparent, voice activated transmitter. Then she carefully put everything back the way she found it and walked away, just in time. Jessup was driving back as he circled the block.
She took a moment to release the dark and her hold on the thugs minds then she dived into the passenger seat of the waiting car. “Hit the gas Jessup. They’re waking up.”
As his foot hit the accelerator he frowned at the waking thugs in the revision mirror. “How the hell did you…?”
Astra glared at him. “What did I tell you when you first became my partner?”
“Exactly. You saw nothing strange, heard nothing strange. You will tell no-one.”
Jessup shook his head to clear it. He’d seen her step out of a dark abyss and then the waking thugs were there. At least that’s what he thought he saw. No, he wasn’t putting that in his report. He’d be spending time with his workplace’s shrink if he did. Definitely didn’t see anything. “You have my word Jas.”
And his word was good. “I know I do.” Time had proven that.
Long ago a highly intelligent, science and music loving race of sentient beings was forced to flee their galaxy.

Now Adelaide must meet them and decide whether to they should be invited to join the sentient beings who are allied against their old foe.
Adelaide must use all the skills her new immortality has gifted her to tread a delicate diplomatic path. Diplomacy is the least of the challenges she faces. An ancient manuscript, assassination attempts and two males vying for her attention are just the start. Zak is an immortal vampire and Colonial Andrei Lupei his friend, feeder and bodyguard. But even Andrei is more than he seems. Together they must save Translavia from the enemy while solving an ancient mystery.
Okay, maybe that wasn't on the plus side but the local vet, Sally, who seemed to have the hots for him certainly was.
Only problem is he's had some rather bad news. Now he must put his trust in his new best friend Thex and the advice of an ancient mountain mystic.
In the meantime Sally's accidentally cut her hand. Her friends' seemingly ordinary cat licks the wound clean. After that life starts getting pretty strange.
The book continues the series' look at the metaphysics of the unconditional. There's erotic gun toting uber immortals, evil aliens, pagans, an earth goddess and all sorts of beings you didn't know the earth contained. Steeped in ancient mythology, mysticism, love, sex and taboo breaking alternate spirituality it will appeal most to the open minded looking for a fun read.
Guardians of the Rasselas is a novella set loosely within the world of the Left Hand Adventures series but it can be read independently. It contains adult references, diverse sexual relationships and some Australian slang.
Long ago Trian was a member of a team aboard a galactic defense spaceship, sent to stop an invasion of Earth. An unsavory group of demonic aliens wanted Earth for its mineral resources. They had no qualms about removing any obstacles in their way, planets, civilizations and anyone sent to stop them. It didn’t go well for Earth’s defenders. Immortal yet frozen in stone they had no choice except to wait out the eons. An ancient prophecy told that only through the compassion of spiritually evolved humans would each of them be freed. And there’s the first problem.
Phoenix knows she wouldn’t know compassion if she fell over it. She certainly isn’t spiritually evolved. Though she now lives in Boswell and she has had the retrovirus to repair her DNA she still can’t do anything like the others around her. She can’t telepath, except with the one voice in her head, she can’t teleport and she’s shown no sign of any other special skills. She’s the least likely person to help Trian yet it appears fate has decreed she’s the one. Then there’s the other problem. The stone that is currently Trian is holding up the side of a mountain. If that mountain side falls...
A hundred thousand years ago the immortal commander of the Malakim’s galactic defense fleet, fighting to protect the planets of this dimension from an invasion force, was turned into stone and plummeted to earth. Unable to use his immortal powers to free himself he must wait through the eons until a human is born with enough unconditional love and compassion to form a mystical bond with him and free him. The prophecy of a young immortal boy is his only hope "The heart of stone by love be free." In the meantime his enemy, the Din, have established themselves on the planet he sought to save. Possibly the oversouls of dinosaurs, they have demonic powers to possess another being by inhabiting their aura. They've built themselves a global economic empire, living in comfort at the expense of those they've enslaved.
The story does not belong to any one genre. It mixes mythology, paranormal romance, conspiracy, sci-fi adventure and is a light-hearted introduction into non-dual consciousness. One reader called the adventure "an expansive swirl of fantasy, sci-fi inter galactic battles, new age mysticism and more than a little in the way of lusty encounters involving a vastly experienced, endowed, ageless shape shifting spirit being and an initially sedate...librarian."
Tyra, the librarian, is called in to view the remains of her uncle who seems to have been slaughtered by a wild beast. She finds out that she belongs to one of the guardian families and has a prophecy to fulfill. She's worked for years at her desk in the city's library. Haunted by dreams of an alien warrior and a mysterious sage she's never been interested in having an intimate relationship. Now she must learn enough about tantra to free her destined mate and enough of martial arts to survive until she does, cross more than a few taboo boundaries along the way. Some bondage scenes, neo-tantra and menage sex.
This is the first book in the series called Left hand adventures. Lefthand Adventures is the business Simon trades under in Heart of Stone, until he sets up his new security firm. Lefthand also designates one of the many spiritual evolutionary paths the Malakim follow. Simon follows left hand path, using ecstatic experiences and shamanic practices. Whereas Thex follows the warrior’s path of justice and the protection of the innocent. Tyra adopts the middle path of love and compassion but that doesn’t exclude her from learning the ways of ecstasy or becoming a warrior in her own right. Other books in the series so far are A Lick of Immortality (Book 2) which focuses on John, Sally and Arion’s stories. Trust and Destiny (Book 3) is Michael, Sarah and Kiana’s story.
