After escaping her alien captors, Anneliese Thompson has reclaimed her life on Earth, but she never forgot the Risnarish man who set her free. Now he’s back with an ominous message—the Monsuda are coming for her again. To survive, she must return to his planet and let his people help her. But this former soldier is done sitting on the sidelines—this time, Anneliese wants in on the fight.

Risnar warrior and scientist Nex Clauhahz searches for the former captives he freed from the Monsudan hive. Anneliese’s fire and strength instantly draw him to her. He vows to do whatever it takes to protect her, even if he has to save her from herself.

As alliances are threatened and new enemies are uncovered, Nex and Anneliese search for a way to defeat their common foe. With everything she cares for teetering on the verge of destruction, including her own warrior strength, Anneliese must prove her loyalty and worth—and embrace a second chance at love and a life worth living.

She’s dealing with her past; he’s struggling with his present—together, they’re fighting for their future. Azura has been a member of the Galactic Forces for over a decade. Her entire life has been dedicated to protecting Earth. So much so that she agreed to undergo bio-enhancement surgery to better equip her to fight. But, nothing could prepare her for the greatest fight of her life—overcoming the loss of her fiancé. After three years of grief and suffering, she’s finally ready to move forward and to take control of her life again. Even if that means joining what could potentially be the most dangerous mission Earth has launched in centuries. Minos is a Samou Warrior. The dragon-shifters have long been allies of Earth in their enterprise to keep peace throughout the Galaxy. More than just any warrior, Minos is a high-ranking, confident leader who is prepared to take on any challenge presented to him. When Earth’s safety is compromised, he’s ready and willing to step up and take the lead on the dangerous expedition into deep space. When the two meet, sparks fly. Azura thinks that opening up to Minos about her past will be the most challenging part of the mission. Minos believes that keeping his feelings for her at bay will be his biggest struggle. Little do either of them know, survival itself will soon become their main priority. With only the other to rely on, they will be forced to face both the past and the present while struggling to hold onto hope for the future. Will love conquer all? Or, will the situation, their personal struggles, and the dangers that surround them pull them apart?
A gargoyle imprisoned.

Captured, starved and blinded, Tas hates humans. For eighty agonizing years, he’s plotted all the gruesome ways to exact his vengeance. Then one day his captors make a fatal mistake. When the door to his cage opens, he’s ready to destroy the human on the other side. 

But a different instinct takes over when he scents the female. His mouth waters and his fangs ache, demanding he make the fearless female his.

A single mom, desperate to save her kid.

Juniper owes a lot of money to a very bad man and unless she does what he wants, he’ll hurt her kid.

To clear her debt, all she has to do is drive a van and not ask questions. But when she hears a voice in the back, she realizes she may not only be a thief but also a kidnapper, and that’s where she draws the line. 

What she finds in the back isn’t the loot she expected, but it also isn’t a person. 

It’s a gargoyle… who intends to claim her as his mate.


Taken for Granite is a standalone novel in the collaborative series the Khargals of Duras, featuring a grumpy gargoyle and an HEA. 

A thousand years ago, a Khargal scouting party left Duras, only to crash on a planet called Earth.

Injured and outnumbered, the stranded Khargals hid among stone effigies and observed the slow evolution of the planet’s primitive inhabitants. With no means of returning to Duras, they watched from their shadowy perches and faded into legend, becoming the mythical gargoyles. 

Until today. Long after any hope for rescue had died, the distress signal has finally been answered. 

It’s time to go home.
