A body is found in the Alabama wilderness. The question is: Is it a human corpse…or is it just piece of discarded property?
Agent Samantha Rose has been exiled in a backwater assignment for the Commonwealth Bureau of Investigation, a death knell for her career. But then Sam catches a break—a murder—which could give her the boost she needs to get her life back on track. There’s a snag, though: the body is a clone, and technically that means it’s not a homicide. And yet, something about the body raises questions, not only for her, but for coroner Linsey Mackenzie.
The more they dig, the more they realize nothing about this case is what it seems…and for Sam, nothing about Mac is what it seems, either.
This case might be the way out for her...but that way could be in a bodybag.
The Colonies have spread throughout their corner of the galaxy, colonising any planet that will support life, or contains valuable minerals. Each planet has its own peculiarities, from the lost and primitive planet of Zerris, to the thriving planet of Urslat, to the meteor decimated Semala. And each planet has their own set of rules to govern what can and can’t be done.
But love doesn’t always play by the rules.

Who will inherit this new Earth?
The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age - a world terraformed and prepared for human life.
But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare.
Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?
Alien supersoldier Kugah needs the human’s wormhole technology to find a new home, far away from the alien race who created him and want him back. The only future he envisions is a life alone, far from anyone he could hurt. Then he meets the human doctor, Amelie. Her gentle, caring nature opens the possibility of a future with someone by his side.
She's fascinated by the tall, dark alien.
Dr Amelie Benton's interest is purely scientific of course. But when the ship's passengers begin to show signs of unnaturally rapid ageing after a desperate trip through a wormhole, she has no one she can rely on other than the strong, silent alien.
If she can't find a cure for the ship's passengers, soon she and the alien might be the only two left alive on the ship. Will they risk their growing connection on a desperate rescue mission?

He’s even more surprised to realize that the woman he’s loved for years is the one who reveals it to him.
Gannon Consul knows the meaning of power. As next in line for leadership in his caste, he is well acquainted with the lengths to which the Realm will go to stop someone from reaching above their station. Gannon senses that change is coming. He just never expected that it would come in the form of the one woman who calls to him like no other.

Choices have to be made ...
Kira struggles with her love for both Gannon and Tai even as she takes on a greater role that strengthens her position among her peers. When given a choice she’s never believed possible, Kira thinks she has the answer to her every desire. Unfortunately, her every desire doesn’t come as easily as she hopes.
... even as time runs out
As Kira comes to terms with her desires, her rising status becomes threatened by revelations that lead her to a truth that’s been buried within the Realm’s past.

While the Realm stands defiant amidst rising unrest, Kira is thrust into a role that puts her at the forefront of her system’s governance and law, and supporting a landmark position. Following a devastating turn of events, she turns to Tai for a shoulder to lean on after making a painful choice to ensure Gannon fulfils the role he was meant for.

She needs a partner.

sci-fi romance, pretend relationship, free, freebie, fake marriage, snow, winter, dystopian,
Jenn Klein was raised in the human world unaware of her gryphon heritage or the legacy before her. Devastated by the death of her twin brother, she makes the uncharacteristic decision to find emotional connection with a stranger, a man she knows only as Talon in the cave-like sleeper cab of his rig. But no sooner is she introduced to the gryphon world they’re meant to share than she’s violently taken and forced to fight, delicately balancing the human world she knows with the world of the gryphons.
Born and reared a proud warrior, Talon’s life takes the turn of most male gryphons; that of a rogue, existing in both the human world and on the fringes of his adopted Rocky Mountain eyrie. After proving himself to the beautiful but emotionally damaged rogue female in his truck they part ways. He’s haunted by her presence in his heart until they’re reunited in his eyrie. When she’s torn from his arms he’ll stop at nothing to have the woman he now calls Shadow returned to his side.
When Cloud is expelled from Master Sky’s ranger training program, the last gryphon she expects to find at her den is her old lover Soar. Now she’s the only gryphon with the skills to get inside a corrupt Calgary eyrie and Soar needs her in more ways than one. Cloud has little choice but to accept the mission. Success will get her back in Sky’s good books but accepting Soar as her working partner will either heal her broken heart or ruin it completely.
Master Soar walked out of Cloud’s life when her departure to the ranger program was inevitable. She was motivated, beautiful and too young to tie herself to someone like him. As much as it hurt, it was better to let her go. But when the Calgary eyrie is at the centre of a conspiracy to destroy his own, he’s forced to play every card he has, including Cloud. When Cloud shuts him out and starts to operate on her own he has no choice but to go in after her, risking the entire mission to get the gryphon he loves out alive.
