Summary

The forces of annihilation 
Throughout the galaxy, the near-invincible armiesof the alien Remor have set their sights on one goal: the complete extermination of the human race.Outnumbered and outgunned, The InterstellarDefense League cannot afford to discard any asset -- so a disgraced Sector Commander is being given a chance to redeem himself ... by sacrificing his life. 
The fate of Christoph Stone -- and, perhaps, the destiny of all humankind -- is to be decided on a distant frontier planet nestled deep in enemy-controlled space. Saddled with shockingly green troops, a captain with a checkered past, and a trouble-making civilian expeditionary force, Stone's mission is clear and clearly suicidal.  Because even his superiors are unaware of the weapon the Remor have waiting for the human invaders as they attempt to retake a captive world: an instrument of destruction that is demonic, unstoppable ... and obscenely human.

    A simple journey home to visit her parents turns into a race against time when Khorii happens upon a derelict spacecraft drifting in space, its crew dead in their seats.

    When life gives you brownies, make coffee. 
    Angharad ‘Harry’ Russo has had a busy week.  She’s fended off a swarm of pixies, battled blood-thirsty redcaps and put an end to a maniacal Fae prince hell-bent on eradicating the entire werewolf population.  She’s also decided to open a coffee shop.  Is it too much to ask for things to settle down so her life can go back to normal? 
    Apparently it is.  As if being metaphysically bound to Cian Nash, the most aggravating yet desirable man she’s ever met, isn’t enough, Harry’s just found out that the Magister, the biggest, baddest vampire around, is her father.  Talk about your daddy issues! 
    Harry just wants to concentrate on getting the coffee shop open, but between the freaky ghosts that keep haunting her and rogue vampires terrorizing the city, it looks like normal is a thing of the past. 
    This is book three of the Harry Russo Diaries. It is a stand-alone adventure with no cliffhanger. Intended for a mature audience.

    As far as job hazards go, Douglass Fraser didn't think crash-landing on an alien planet and spending her recuperation being erotically pleasured by three gorgeous men was in the United Planetary Parcel Service's courier handbook. There certainly wasn't a section on what to do when a very sexy king wants you to have his baby and save his world.

    After a youth spent trapped in space exile, Jeff Font returned to Earth to seek vengeance against the planetary mogul who had framed and destroyed his family. Jeff’s plans backfired: He was captured, drugged, rammed through a computerized court system, convicted . . . and ringed.The ring. The ultimate high-tech civics lesson. A surgically implanted electronic monitor that automatically caused unendurable agony when a convict strayed from righteousness. A ringer would do no evil, think no evil, see or hear evil robocops—nor defend himself or others from insult or injury.And in a corrupt world of licensed sin and satanic parties, floral estates, and city-size slums, ringers were the ultimate victims. But the ring’s data banks had not factored in Jeff Font’s strength, courage, and his will to fight society, the world, and the agony of the ring to unravel the plot that entrapped him—and see justice done.
