Noble Ark: Mankind's Redemption Book 1
Mwalgi pirates, parasitic aliens who consume human spinal fluid, are boarding the Noble Ark. When Larkin Trovgar, a half-human member of the attacking alien ship, turns on his own people, saving Aline Taylor's life, she feels duty-bound to watch over the impossible monstrosity. Despite his easy-going charms and virile physique, she's determined to see him as she would any Mwalgi--nothing better than an animal. As Larkin's presence brings out the best and worst in the human crew, and the Noble Ark is harassed by more Mwalgi ships, will Aline look past Larkin's alien heritage to find love, or will mistrust cost her everything?
Desolation: Mankind's Redemption Book 2
Aline and Lar escaped, but Lar's former ship, Desolashon, is still a threat. As tensions grow and Lar and Aline's situation worsens, finding a way out becomes secondary to daily survival. Merderous plots and jealous rivalries threaten their lives, but even greater danger lies in the secrets they dare not reveal.
Mwalgi Justice: Mankind's Redemption Book 3
Lar has one week until the authorities take him away and incarcerate him for treason. Aline's only hope for survival is to stay with Lar's brother, Jeraud, but it's a fruitless hope. The loving family of Lar's youth has disappeared, replaced by animosity, prejudice, and betrayal. If Lar and Aline thought surviving on a Mwalgi spaceship was impossible, now they face a planet deemed uninhabitable to humans whose authorities would like to see Lar dead, and a populace who would drain Aline's CSF without mercy.
Fourteen: The Number Prophecy Book 1
As one of the emperor's many sons, Fourteen hopes to be chosen as his father's successor despite master Chid Den's cautions. When magic and science combine to threaten Fourteen's life, it's too late to escape. He and Den must put their trust in Mariessa, a small sixteen-year-old girl with unusual abilities. As Den holds to his secrets, Mariessa continues to distrust, and Fourteen's pride brings contention, their survival depends on learning to believe in one another. And if the emperor's fear of their success is any indication, their efforts could affect more lives than their own.
