Chaos is his element…until a mortal woman’s touch snares his heart.

Catalina Castillo should be happy in her renovated vineyard house, weaving intricate tapestries. But her nights echo with emptiness — until she hears her name whispered on the wind, and a man steps out from among the vines.

He’s tall, black-haired, a stranger — and then he shifts. He’s the Lord of Chaos, the demon who helped the Castillo clan defeat their arch-enemy. When she offers him shelter, she’s not sure if it’s family honor or her body talking.

After months of being stranded on Earth, Loc has finally found a warlock with the power to send him back to his own world. But the dark New Orleans spellcaster wants something in return. Cat is the key to capturing the prize, but as desire weaves its spell between them, Loc finds himself struggling with something he’s rarely bothered with…a conscience.

With the demon realm calling him home, their attraction can never be more than that. But when the warlock kidnaps Cat, Loc realizes what he stands to lose. If he doesn’t act fast, she won’t need her innate ability to talk to ghosts. Because she’ll be one of them herself….

Demon Born is the fifth novel in the Witches of Canyon Road series, a spin-off from Christine Pope’s bestselling Witches of Cleopatra Hill books. Although characters from previous books in the series appear, this is a standalone paranormal romance.

The Consuming Fire—the New York Times and USA Today bestselling sequel to the 2018 Hugo Award Best Novel finalist and 2018 Locus Award-winning The Collapsing Empire—an epic space-opera novel in the bestselling Interdependency series, from the Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi

The Interdependency—humanity’s interstellar empire—is on the verge of collapse. The extra-dimensional conduit that makes travel between the stars possible is disappearing, leaving entire systems and human civilizations stranded.

Emperox Grayland II of the Interdependency is ready to take desperate measures to help ensure the survival of billions. But arrayed before her are those who believe the collapse of the Flow is a myth—or at the very least an opportunity to an ascension to power.

While Grayland prepares for disaster, others are prepare for a civil war. A war that will take place in the halls of power, the markets of business and the altars of worship as much as it will between spaceships and battlefields.

The Emperox and her allies are smart and resourceful, as are her enemies. Nothing about this will be easy... and all of humanity will be caught in its consuming fire.

Extraordinary women. Extraordinary love stories. A secret war.

The Sedona Files series follows the lives of a group of women as they work to foil an alien invasion...and just happen to fall in love along the way. This boxed set includes all six books in the series:

Bad Vibrations

She thought she could see it all…
He showed her so much more. 

Psychic Persephone O’Brien thinks she’s always prepared for the unexpected, but when she reaches out to distractingly attractive ufologist Paul Oliver for help, the two of them soon find themselves drawn into a far-reaching conspiracy that sends them on the run — as well as into each other’s arms. And after Paul is captured by sinister agents, Persephone finds herself joining forces with an unlikely group of UFO hunters to rescue Paul and derail an alien plot before it’s too late.

Desert Hearts

He needs her help.
She’s his only hope.
But he’s hiding something…

When a sexy stranger with no memories of his former life staggers out of the desert, pleading for Kara Swenson’s help, she can’t refuse — despite her better judgment. After all, being involved in the UFO community for many years has made Kara open to the strange and unusual. What transpires between Kara and the stranger is intimate and sensual, leading to complications Kara is forced to confront. And when the shocking truth of the stranger’s identity is revealed, Kara finds herself having to make a choice between the truth of her heart and an uncertain future.

Angel Fire

The winter brings more than just a chill…

When strange forces begin to threaten her hometown, it’s up to Kirsten Swenson to save her friends and family from certain destruction. Agreeing to work with a mysterious Man in Black proves to be more than Kirsten ever bargained for, because Agent Martin Jones is far more than he seems. With his ability to awaken the powers that have lain dormant within her, Martin draws out the shocking secrets that were buried in Kirsten’s past, while also encouraging her to give in to her heart. But when the aliens force her to make the ultimate sacrifice, Kirsten realizes that sometimes following her heart isn’t enough.

Star Crossed

She loves what she can’t have.
Can she destroy what she loves?

During an attempted invasion by an army of reptilian aliens, Grace Rinehart’s father, an alien-human hybrid, sacrificed his life to save Sedona — ultimately destroying the alien base.

But something survived…

Now, twenty-five years later, Grace uncovers what was left behind: the prototype for version 2.0 of an alien/human super-soldier.

As they grow closer and the sexy soldier’s hidden secrets come spilling out, Grace must face the truth of what the Reptilians have been plotting all along. Can Grace trust her heart, or will her distrust of the past destroy the future she wants so badly?

Falling Angels

An alien spirit guide.
A desperate rescue mission.
And one passionate love affair.

Despite her own otherworldly origins, part-alien Callista Jones never expects to fall for former spirit guide Raphael, but she can't resist the strange, intense attraction she feels for the handsome man. With all of her friends and family attempting to pull her away from him, her desire for Raphael only intensifies, driving a wedge between Callista and those she loves. When an alien conspiracy threatens their very existence, it's up to Callista to save them. But can she reconcile with her family and still have the angel who loves her?

Enemy Mine

She's the enemy's biggest threat.
But he just might be the savior they all need.

Although she inherited her mother's psychic gifts, Taryn Oliver didn’t foresee the consequences of possessing those special powers. Now, as the primary target of the ruthless aliens who are plotting humanity's enslavement, Taryn has to find a way to thwart their plans. After meeting the mysterious, half-alien Lir Gideon, she fights the attraction she feels for him, understanding that the very future of humanity could be at stake. What she doesn’t realize is that her connection with Gideon may be the key to saving not only everyone she loves, but the entire planet as well.
