About the author

A native of Southern California, Christine Pope has been writing stories ever since she commandeered her family’s Smith-Corona typewriter back in the sixth grade. Christine writes in several sub-genres of romance, including paranormal romance, fantasy romance, and science fiction/space opera romance. The Land of Enchantment cast its spell on her while she was researching her Djinn Wars series, and she now makes her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.


C. Gockel got her start writing fanfiction, and she is not ashamed! Much. She received emails, messages and reviews from her fans telling her she should 'do this professionally'. She didn't; because she is a coward and life as a digital designer, copywriter and coder is more dependable. But in the end, her husband's nagging wore her down: "You could be the next '50 Shades of Gray' and I could retire!" Unfortunately, the author writes science fiction and fantasy, not erotica. She is sad about this; she'd love for her husband to be able to retire and just work for her so she could nag him.


Carol Van Natta is a USA TODAY bestselling science fiction and fantasy author. Works include the Central Galactic Concordance space opera series, paranormal romance, and retro science fiction comedy. She shares her Fort Collins, CO home with a sometime mad scientist and various cats. Find her on the web at Author.CarolVanNatta.com or facebook.com/CarolVanNattaAuthor.

Lindsay is a full-time independent fantasy, science-fiction, and sci-fi romance author who loves travel, hiking, tennis, and vizslas. She grew up in the Seattle area but moved to Arizona when she realized she was solar-powered.


Greta van der Rol is a writer, photographer, animal lover, and self-described space nut. She loves writing space opera with a dollop of romance - but she's written two paranormal novels featuring weretigers, and one historical fiction. She lives with her husband not far from the beach in Queensland, Australia.


Alexis Glynn Latner has written the science fiction novel "Hurricane Moon" (Pyr 2007, Avendis Press 2014) and more than two dozen stories in science fiction, fantasy, horror and mystery magazines and anthologies. She has a sailplane pilot's license, so she understands the calculus of risk and reward when people undertake adventure. She works at Rice University's Fondren Library in Houston, Texas, and teaches creative writing through the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies at Rice. Her Website is http://www.alexisglynnlatner.com.


Pauline doesn't love reality so she writes books. She tends to wander among the genres, rampaging like Godzilla (they were born the same year) through her characters lives, mixing peril and humor into her romance. However, whether she's writing science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, or cozy mystery she always delivers a happy ending.

An injured veterinarian and a cyborg with unusual pets must join forces to save their town.


The vast Central Galactic Concordance strictly prohibits genetic experimentation and alteration of humans on any of its 500 member planets. Animals aren’t so lucky.


On a frontier planet, veterinarian Bethnee Bakonin made a home for herself in the frozen north. Her minder talent for healing all kinds of animals would ordinarily assure her success, but her unwilling stint in the shady pet trade industry left her damaged and scared. She works around her limitations as best she can, and rescues pet trade castoffs.


“Volunteered” for a black-box research project, elite forces Jumper Axur Tragon now has dangerous experimental tech in his cybernetic limbs. He escaped and crash-landed a stolen freighter in the northern mountains of a frontier planet, only to discover a secret shipment of designer pets was part of the cargo. Determined to do right by them, he enlists reluctant Bethnee’s aid in caring for them—a definite challenge, considering Bethnee is terrified of him.


When greedy mercenaries come raiding, can Axur and Bethnee work together to overcome their limitations, with help from their unusual pets, and save the day?


It's a deadly adventure—with pets—in the fringes of space. Grab your copy of Pet Trade today!

Series note: Pet Trade takes place between Pico's Crush and Jumper's Hope in the Central Galactic Concordance series timeline, but is a standalone story. Originally appeared in the USA TODAY bestselling anthology Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2.

This boxed set contains the first three books in the Djinn Wars series:

CHOSEN

When a fatal fever nearly wipes out the entire world's population, the survivors of what became known as "the Dying" believe the worst is in the past. Little do they know…

In the aftermath of the Dying, survivor Jessica Monroe searches for sanctuary in a world unlike any she's ever known before. As fear and isolation envelop her, Jessica encounters the sensitive and helpful Jace, who she believes is another survivor. But Jace has a past and secrets of his own that's he not ready to disclose. Soon Jessica realizes that the destruction of humanity might actually be the first step in a larger, more complicated plan -- a plan that may very well involve her. Struggling to discover her role in a terrifying new world where everything has changed, she must decide who she can trust. But is the price for that trust just too high?

TAKEN

The choice is hers...
Live life alone, or risk everything for the djinn man she loves?

Jessica Monroe's time is running out.  A survivalist group is intent on eradicating Jace and all others of his kind, and it's up to her to rescue him from the stronghold of the Immune. With the survivors developing a weapon that could quite easily tip the scales in the war between human and djinn, Jessica is determined to save the man she loves -- even if means betraying what's left of humanity. 

FALLEN 

Would you sacrifice it all for the man you love?

When a group of rogue djinn attacks Taos, Jessica Monroe has no choice but to activate the device that was created to rid the elementals of their supernatural powers, even though the machine's very existence threatens to ruin the lives of her lover and friends.  It's up to Jessica to launch a desperate mission to retrieve the one person who can help: Miles Odekirk, the mastermind who created the device.

The threat of retaliation by the Los Alamos survivors is not the only danger Jessica must face. Enemies lurk around every corner, and when an ancient rival returns to carry out his own revenge, Jessica may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the man she loves, as well as the entire Taos community, human and djinn alike.
