Sten's ship crashed on Earth centuries ago, and since then, he's been hiding in plain sight, awaiting rescue. But a thousand years is a long time to go without companionship, even for a long-lived alien, and the human female he's guarded since childhood has grown into an alluring woman.
When a mysterious man offers to buy the "statue" in Angie's garden, Sten knows he's been discovered. The Rose Syndicate has hunted his kind for centuries, capturing and torturing his fellow Khargals in the name of science. But simply fleeing isn't an option; Angie has a secret. One he's sworn to protect.
Forced to reveal himself, Sten is confronted with a new truth. Impossible as it seems, Angie is his mate.
And the urge to claim her may be his undoing.
STICKS AND STONES is a standalone story in the collaborative Khargals of Duras series, with no cliffhangers and a guaranteed HEA. Enjoy the books in any order!
Once upon a time I thought I wanted to be a biomedical engineer, but experimenting on lab rats doesn't always lead to happy endings. Now I blend my nerdy infatuation of science with character-driven romance and guaranteed happily-ever-afters. My monsters always find their mates, with feisty heroines, tortured heroes, and all the steamy trouble they can handle. I promise my stories will never leave you hanging (although you may still crave more!)
When I'm not writing, I'll be in the garden or the kitchen, exploring Alaska with my husband, or preparing for the zombie apocalypse. I also love wine and hard apple cider, am mediocre at crochet, and have the cutest 12-pound bunny named Abigail.

A young journalist. An alien sex club. A Krinar who won’t take no for an answer.
Amy Myers is tired of writing fluff. She wants to work on serious assignments—and what better way to prove herself than to uncover something new about the mysterious Krinar, the aliens who took over the Earth just two years earlier? But when she meets Vair, the dark and sexy owner of a Manhattan x-club, she may get more than she bargained for...
Hunter Lyna Moore is untrusting by nature, doesn’t leave anything to chance and takes all the necessary precautions, especially when it comes to men. So how is it possible she’s pregnant after one mind-blowing sexual encounter with the male who captured her heart the minute she stepped foot on the planet? To make matters worse, the father has no idea he’s going to be a daddy and has been avoiding her ever since their—ahem—joining.
Dathan Sorak knows it will take more than informing Lyna that she is his destined mate for her to agree to his claiming. After months of planning, coaxing, and finally winning her trust, he makes his move only to have it destroyed when a threat from his past endangers her life. In order to keep her safe, he is forced to keep their connection a secret and keep her at a distance. A task made more difficult by the primal instincts driving him to bond with her and pushing him toward the edge of insanity.
His resolve to stay away from Lyna changes when he discovers she plans to leave Tarron…to leave him. Dangerous or not, he refuses to lose her and will do whatever it takes to protect and claim what destiny has proclaimed belongs to him.
Set against the backdrop of China's Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of destruction captures the signal and plans to invade Earth. Meanwhile, on Earth, different camps start forming, planning to either welcome the superior beings and help them take over a world seen as corrupt, or to fight against the invasion. The result is a science fiction masterpiece of enormous scope and vision.
