What's New

Coming October 6, 2014

Her research can save them from extinction.

Her Blood makes her one of them.

A few want to kill her.

One man will do all he can to save her.


Adopted and raised by Terrans, Dr. Brianna Martin never quite fit in. Finding out she’s a long-lost female of the Prime race, she’s thrilled. And she has a mate living somewhere on Prime—one genetically destined to be hers alone. Before she figures out how to approach him, she’s attacked in her research lab.

Iolyn Caradoc is stunned at the news that his mate, matched to him soon after birth, still lives. Even more amazing, she’s a research scientist on the verge of discovering why the Prime race is dying. But pure-blood fanatics are trying to kill her and she’s on the run. Every primal instinct in him insists he find, claim, and protect his mate. But the woman won’t stay put.

When Bria finally meets Iolyn, she’s thrilled. He’s everything she could want—physically strong, highly intelligent, and … the other half of her soul. Yet, he’s also an overwhelmingly dominant and stubborn Prime warrior who wishes to protect her from everything—including her own Prime nature. As a Prime battle-mate, she has newfound instincts and skills—ones that will make her a true warrior. Ones she fully intends to learn and use.

If she manages to survive.

Newest Release from the Prime Chronicles Trilogy

Jo at Joyfully Reviewed says "Prime Selection is full of tension and suspense along with passion and humor all twirled together in a way that had me engaged from the beginning until the end."

4.5 Nymphs from Literary Nymph Reviews Only.

Blue Ribbon Rating of 5 from Romance Junkies.

4.5 Lips from Two Lips Reviews.

4.5 Stars and a Top Review from Night Owl Reviews.

Commander Nadia Petrovich, Science Officer of the Alliance Starship Galanti, has a problem, which has nothing to do with science. Her problem is Commander Huw Caradoc, the Galanti’s Chief Engineer. She and the stubborn Prime male have a growing connection he refuses to acknowledge—a bond that could drive him mad.

They are connected psychically and the bond grows stronger every day. If Nadia didn’t know it was impossible, she would suspect they were mating in the Prime tradition—a biological imperative that locates and marks a Prime’s optimum mate. But she isn’t Prime, as Huw tells her and anybody who’ll listen.

Nadia’s emotional anguish couldn’t have come at a worse time. The Prime and Galactic Alliance merger is finally under way, and the all-male Prime crews are learning how to work with female Alliance crew members. The Antareans threaten the outer arms of the Milky Way, and Prime rebels wreak havoc on the Prime home planet and elsewhere.

Despite the conflict surrounding them, Nadia and Huw will not be able to avoid their fate or their growing love. Prime selection will make the decision for them whether the timing is right or not.

SSI Book 2.5

Storm Front (free at LSbooks.com in various e-book formats)

Less than one week after Earl Blackhawk helped Risto Smith and Callie Meyers fight off a Colombian drug lord in Osprey’s Point, Michigan, he travels to Idaho to act as Risto’s best man at his marriage to Callie. There he meets Callie’s friend, Tessa Andrews. When he’d asked Callie to find him a woman just like her, he’d been teasing … sort of. but Callie had taken him seriously and he was glad she had.

Tessa comes to Idaho with a problem dogging her heels. A cyberstalker has resurrected a past she thought deeply buried. A past any decent man, a man such as Earl, would take one look at and run the other way.

But then, Tessa has never met a man like Earl. He’s more than attracted to Tessa, feels instantly protective of her, and nothing and no one will harm her while he’s around.

Tessa doesn’t believe she deserves a happy ever after, and when Earl and some others see the damaging images her cyberstalker sends her, she runs into the teeth of a storm front and deadly peril.

What I'm Working On Now(updated 03/04/2014):

Prime Imperative, Prime Chronicles Book 3 is with my editor

Watch this page and my FaceBook page (link on the nav bar to the left) for updates. Watch my newsletter also. The link for subscribing to my newsletter is on the left nav bar.

After Prime Imperative is done, I will work on the following SSI books in this order (until it changes -- the characters have a way of messing with me):

1. Storm Warning, Book 4, Tweeter's story. I have started this book and am at 9K words.

2. An Ill Wind, Book 5, Trey and Fee's story (started in Storm Front novella).

3. One of Keely's other brothers will get his book; probably Devin or Andy.

After that, it's up to the characters talking in my head to tell me who is next. :)

Plus, I would like to re-release sometime in 2014 my Dream Realm finalist book, Green Fire, which has been out of print since 12/2005. It was an e-book and trade paper release from the former LTDBooks in Canada.
