Crux

The Jekh Saga

Book 2

8

Erin McGarry fears she’s becoming the very thing she hates. She traveled to the planet Jekh to get her big sister, Courtney, out of a jam, and now Erin has become a colonist, too. In spite of the planet’s unstable political environment and ongoing rioting by the native Jekhans, Erin fears that retreating to Earth would mean she’d never see Courtney again.

To complicate her ordeal further, as one of very few women on a planet of desperate men, people expect Erin to pick a lover—or two—and settle down. With the Jekhan race having nearly been obliterated by Terran colonists, Erin refuses to help further dilute their culture. But at least two men think Erin’s objections don’t hold water.

They may have been enemies at first sight, but Esteben Beshni and Headron Jiro intimately bond over a common goal: making Erin their mate. Just when they think they’ve made headway with convincing her, the men’s efforts are choked by the reemergence of Erin’s long-missing grandfather and by unsettling revelations about the abductors who created the Jekhan hybrid race. If they can’t convince Erin that a mixed-culture ménage is the intergalactic ticket to happiness, they may miss their chance to have children.

How can they help rebuild Jekh if the one woman who wants them both is too idealistic to commit?

As an adamant opponent of Terran settlement on the planet Jekh, Owen McGarry made his family name synonymous with “traitor” on Earth. Lobbyists standing to profit from off-world colonization hinted that the Jekhans were preparing to declare war. Nearly twenty years after Owen’s supposed death, his granddaughter Courtney wants to learn the truth—even if she has to travel to the far-flung colony to do it.

Court soon learns that not only was her grandfather right about the Jekhans, but that conditions on their world are far more hostile than she feared. Terran forces decimated the population of the resident human-alien hybrids, and the people who remain seem to be all out of fight. That is, except for the pair of men Court finds hiding in her basement.

Fugitives Murki and Trigrian see a future in Court. On a planet where so few women remain, she has the potential to be the mate the lovers need. And more, she could become the advocate for their people that her grandfather didn’t get the chance to be.

When the corrupt local government seeks to punish Court’s friends and family for her actions, she has no choice but to make a stand. If it takes a riot to make the people on Earth see that they were misled about Jekh, she’s more than willing to start one. After all, her reputation couldn’t possibly get any worse.

Go to earth. Find a woman. Bring her back. Simple.

The Emperor's Shadow, Xaandryn, is not a warrior. He's something else, whatever else, the Emperor needs him to be. An assassin, and, it seems… now he's a delivery boy. Sent to earth to retrieve the Lady Jessica's sick sister, he's anticipating an easy trip and, if he spends a little time getting to know the local culture… well, that's just a perk of the job. Right?

Human women though are endlessly fascinating, especially Jac Wright, the sick lady's nurse. He'd thought the warriors who'd fallen for human women had defective genes, that there was something wrong in their makeup that allowed them to fall prey to their human mates. But Jac is… something else. Tiny. Delicate. Beautiful.

When his mission goes sideways, and an attack puts a couple of them in danger, he escapes earth with not one, but two human women in his care. After all… she's only one tiny little woman. What could possibly go wrong?

Apparently… everything.

He's hot. Gorgeous. And a total liar...

When the hot 'doctor' who arrives to see her sick charge, Jac wright knows he's not on the level. No doctor looks the way Rynn does… hot, ripped and panty-wettingly gorgeous… not unless they're on primetime TV. Then the shit hits the fan, aliens attack and she finds herself on an alien ship with her charge frozen into a giant blue popsicle.

What's a girl to do? Kiss the hot alien, then knock him out of course. The problem is, she can't drive a car, never mind fly an alien spaceship. Which is a problem when other, bad aliens board the ship… with an assassin on side though, breaking out of an alien brig is child's play, but comes with a price: Rynn's trust.

But once on Lathar Prime her lover seems less than interested in bringing their relationship into the light of day. Will he realise what she's offering, or will Jac be forced to go to extreme measures to claim her alien assassin's heart?
