Enhanced World: Book One

Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency.

Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.

Finn Mayer dreamed of joining the FBI from the time he was fourteen and made every possible sacrifice to make it happen, including living with his selfish mother and bullying, homophobic brother and never having a boyfriend. But his undiagnosed dyslexia stopped his aspirations dead in their tracks. His last chance is to partner with Talon, an enhanced with deadly abilities who doesn’t trust regular humans with their secrets and wants Finn to fail.

Four weeks to prove himself to the team. Four weeks for the team to prove itself to the public. And when another group threatens their success—and their lives—four weeks for them to survive.

S.E. Smith
 USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author S.E. Smith presents the first three books of the Alliance series in a bundle!

 

Book 1: Hunter’s Claim

 

Four years ago, the Earth received its first visitors from space, causing mass fear. Alone with just her sisters in a world gone mad, Jesse has learned to use the darkness and the remains of the city to survive and keep what is left of her family alive. She has seen the savage side of human nature and finds they are not much different from the aliens who conquered the Earth.

After first contact, the Trivators found it necessary to take control of the Earth to prevent the humans from destroying it in their fear. Hunter belongs to one of the elite clans of the Trivators who seek out those who resist being brought into the Alliance of Star Systems. His abilities to track, capture, and eliminate his enemies is renowned, but he finds the tables turned when he becomes the one captured by a group of ruthless humans.

Hunter is shocked when a human female risks her life to help him escape, only to disappear into the ruins of the city. He now has a new mission: finding the female who saved his life.

What he finds is a reward beyond comprehension to a Trivator warrior: a family.

Can he convince Jesse that he can give her and her younger sisters a better life on his world? Or will fear keep her from accepting what he has to offer?

 

Book 2: Razor’s Traitorous Heart


Kali Parks is a shadow in the war between two factions that are fighting to gain control of Chicago. Born and raised on the streets, she stands as a silent sentinel at her brother's side as he battles to gain control. She will do whatever it takes to bring peace to those she has pledged her life to protect, including fighting against the creatures that came to their world almost six years before.

Razor, a High Chancellor for the Alliance, has been sent to oversee the remaining Trivator troops on Earth and make sure the transition for the induction of Earth into the Alliance goes smoothly. He is the one the Alliance calls when they have a situation that needs to be resolved once and for all. His reputation for dealing with difficult rebels is renowned.


When a shadow warrior saves his life and disappears, he discovers his world is no longer as cut and dry as he thought. Forced by duty to settle the conflict, Razor must make a painful decision between the Alliance he has dedicated his life to and his own traitorous heart.


Book 3: Dagger’s Hope


Dagger is a Trivator warrior known for his dark and dangerous edge, which makes him the perfect warrior for impossible missions. He fears nothing, until he meets a delicate human female who awakens his heart.

It has been a couple of years since Jordan Sampson was taken away from the war-torn Earth, and she is slowly adjusting to her new life on a strange planet. Fear, confusion, and uncertainty of what the future holds threaten to drown her as she tries to fit in. There is only one hope that keeps her going. It is the handsome alien male that stirs something deep inside her and makes her feel whole.

When Dagger is captured during a mission and sold to the illegal Fight Rings, it is only the memory of Jordan that keeps him going. Time blurs as he slowly sinks deeper and deeper into a world of violence and pain until he becomes more animal than Trivator.

Jordan knows Dagger is out there, somewhere. When she discovers where he is being held, she refuses to let anything stop her from rescuing him.

The fight to save Dagger takes Jordan on a journey that she hopes they both survive. The star system is a dangerous place for a young human female and a damaged Trivator warrior. Can Jordan reach Dagger in time, and if she does, can she heal his shattered soul?

 Lucia

It all started with a contract signed by him, then by me, while our families watched. While my father sat silent, a man defeated, giving his daughter to the Benedetti monsters.


I obeyed. I played my part. I signed my name and gave away my life. I became their living, breathing trophy, a constant symbol of their power over us.


That was five years ago.


Then came the time for him to claim me. For Salvatore Benedetti to own me.


I had vowed vengeance. I had learned hate. And yet, nothing could have prepared me for the man who now ruled my life.


I expected a monster, one I would destroy. But nothing is ever black or white. No one is either good or evil. For all his darkness, I saw his light. For all his evil, I saw his good. As much as he made me hate him, a passion hotter than the fires of hell burned inside me.


I was his, and he was mine. 


My very own monster.


Salvatore


I owned the DeMarco Mafia Princess. She belonged to me now. We had won, and they had lost. And what better way to teach a lesson than to take from them that which is most precious? Most beloved?


I was the boy who would be king. Next in line to rule the Benedetti Family. Lucia DeMarco was the spoils of war. Mine to do with as I pleased.


It was my duty to break her. To make her life a living hell. My soul was dark, I was hell bound. And there was no way out, not for either of us. Because the Benedetti family never lost, and in our wake, we left destruction. It’s how it had always been. How I believed it would always be.


Until Lucia.
