Lyssa Peate is living a double life as a planet discovering scientist and a space pirate bounty hunter. Unfortunately, neither life is going so hot...

Double Life, Book 1 in the Razia Series - Dr. Lyssa Peate is living a double life as a space pirate bounty hunter and planet-discovering scientist. Unfortunately neither life is going so hot.

And just when things couldn't get worse--that intern is mistaken for her hostage by the Universal Police. 

Alliances, Book 2 in the Razia Series - Lyssa Peate has a tenuous balance on her double lives--until fireball government investigator Lizbeth Carter comes barreling into them. Lizbeth blackmails Lyssa into helping investigate a strange string of activity, uncovering a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of the Universal Government. 

Conviction, Book 3 in the Razia Series - Clink, Razia's in trouble. Captured by a fellow pirate, she finds herself back to square one and begins to question whether the path she's chosen is the correct one. 

Fusion, Book 4 in the Razia Series - Just when things had evened out for Lyssa Peate, the Great Creator drops a big surprise in her lap. Now she's facing the biggest decision of her life and wonders if she truly isn't worthy of the life she's always wanted. 

Beginnings, a Razia novella prequel - Journey back to before Double Life and see how a spunky eleven-year-old student convinced an infamous pirate to let her join his crew.

 Piracy is a game. How much are you worth?


Since she was a little girl, everyone - from her father to the Great Creator himself - told Lyssa Peate the same thing: she's worthless. But when she becomes the pirate bounty hunter Razia, she can see the price tag on her own head. Employed by one of the four pirate syndicates, she uses bank transactions and her considerable wits to capture rival members. At least, she would be if Razia's boss ever gave her a chance. It's a man’s world, and all she’s allowed to hunt are purse snatchers while she languishes on probation.

To pay the bills, she's stuck in her old life as Lyssa, discovering and analyzing distant planets and selling them for cash. She's doing just enough to stay out of trouble, pretending to be continuing her father's mysterious research while away for long periods of time. Her slimy boss is always asking questions and even assigns one of her younger brothers, Vel, to intern with her. Already struggling to keep the balance between her double lives, she tries everything to rid herself of the kid...

...until the universal police mistake Lyssa’s intern for Razia's hostage

Double Life is the first in a four-book, new adult space opera series that readers call "well-written, entertaining, and engaging" with "a healthy dose of snark."

For fans of Marie Lu comes the first book in an epic series that bends the sci-fi genre into a new dimension.
 
 “A truly beautiful novel that redefines the form." —Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of Red Queen

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.
      The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit.
     But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it’s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.
      Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.
