To survive, we all must make a choice, continue to hide or make a stand. But all choices have consequences, and those consequences lead to roads we never thought we'd travel; roads that may divide us in the end. Sacrifices will be made, not everyone will survive, and through it all there is one question driving us all, who will prevail... mankind or the aliens?

Simolif knew when his brother Jebaral found his life's mate. The blood lines in his arm had increased by one. And the sight of it had thrilled him like nothing else could... unless he, too, could find someone who could accept him for what he was, and who would not scream in fright to see his true self.
He never expected to find Professor Sarah Drumman. As an astronomer, she suspected there were creatures from another galaxy now walking the Earth. More than anything, she wanted to prove her theory to the world.
Their meeting would forever change their lives. Too bad hers meant nothing to the creatures who had landed on Earth looking for their missing cargo.
Reed and Taz are still adjusting to their new lives together when a medical emergency sends them flying down to Florida on short notice. Not quite the way Reed pictured introducing Taz to his family. Reed’s sister, Rene, welcomes the outgoing Taz with open arms, and the kittenish alien charms Reed’s parents.
But someone isn’t quite so enamored of Reed’s boyfriend—his homophobic older brother Jacob seems determined to be as unpleasant as possible, and he’s making their visit very uncomfortable. The sudden appearance of Reed’s controlling ex releases a flood of insecurity and bad memories.
Reed begins to doubt himself, and his ability to love and be loved in return. When strange items begin appearing out of nowhere, he wonders if he’s being stalked, or is he just paranoid? What can Taz do to prove to Reed that he’s more than enough man for this alien?
Yulen sees this as the perfect opportunity to show the citizens of Atty's home compound the power and status his wife wields. But first he, Atty, and his soldiers have to risk the journey against the oncoming horde of blood-thirsty crazies to get there.Atty is eager to return to Wallis, but one small detail stands in the way of her and Yulen's happiness. He desires an heir, and she is terrified at the thought of becoming pregnant. Worse, the dangerous trek has increased his ardor, and she is running out of excuses why they can't make love.
She left her clean clothes and wool towel by the ship wall and began to take off her old, sweaty outfit. The cool sea breeze caused her nipples to harden and goose bumps to dance across her tanned skin. She grinned and shut her eyes before reaching behind her and undoing her bun, allowing her sweaty hair to fall down her back to her butt. As she stood there, she almost felt like the wind was seducing her.
It's been too long, she thought, opening her eyes and gazing at the stars. I really need to take a lover for a night at the next port.
She walked over to the rope ladder and looked down into the sea below. Without bothering to use the ladder, she swung her legs over the side, clutching her bar of soap to her fat breasts, and lunged off the boat.
Tomas crept around and hid at the back of the boat behind some barrels where it was surprisingly empty. The sound of splashing quickly drew his attention. Curiously, he peeked over the side of the ship, expecting to see a fat fish jumping in the water, but instead he saw something else. It was Marmalade. Naked Marmalade.
He gasped and tried to stop looking before he got caught, but he couldn't. This was the first time he truly believed he had met a siren, or at the very least, a mermaid.
Even beneath the water, Tomas could see that Marmalade's breasts were large and fat. By the moonlight, he saw her golden hair flowing around her in the water, encasing her in a mystic, beautiful veil. He gasped and shuddered.
Marmalade moved toward the side of the boat and out of sight, and Tomas moaned, angry at himself for fantasizing about the enemy. As he leaned his head back, he heard more splashing and then banging by the side of the boat. Marmalade appeared again, much closer this time. Her golden hair fell down past her waist, clinging to her gorgeous sea drenched skin. Her eyes were no longer sharp but appeared mellow and refreshed, just as he imagined she would look after being bedded. Her lips were partially opened as she expelled a relaxed sigh.
He could imagine taking her roughly, just as she craved, until she screamed his name. She would never smart mouth him again after that.
Another ship has landed on Neverwylde, but are the visitors friend or foe? Kelen, Kyber, and the crew are hoping for a rescue, but preparing for a battle. The fight between Terrans and Seneecians has been put behind by those on the half-planet in order to survive, but the newcomers are not of the same mindset.
Even if they are rescued, where will that leave Kelen and Kyber? With neither being accepted by the other’s race, will they be forced to go their separate ways?
Everyone is hoping for their own happily ever after once and for all. But sometimes the worst terrors don't come from alien worlds.
They're closer to home.
That was, until Fortune returned without Atty.
Worried and frightened, the Battle Lord, along with a handful of volunteers, go in search of the Battle Lady. They pray they'll find her alive. Either way, they are determined not to return to the compound without knowing the truth.
What they discover will change their world forever.
