Summary

"Even if a magician's powers surface of their own accord, he will soon be dead if he does not gain the knowledge of how to control them." 
 
Alone among all the novices in the Magicians' Guild, only Sonea comes from lowly beginnings. Yet she has won powerful allies—including Lord Dannyl, newly promoted to Guild Ambassador. But Dannyl must now depart for the Elyne court, leaving Sonea at the mercy of the lies and malicious rumors her enemies are busy spreading . . . until the High Lord Akkarin steps in. The price of Akkarin's support is dear, however, because Sonea, in turn, must protect his mysteries—and a secret that could lead a young novice mage deep into the darkness. 
Meanwhile, Dannyl's first order to resume High Lord Akkarin's long-abandoned research into ancient magical knowledge is setting him on an extraordinary journey fraught with unanticipated peril—as he moves ever-closer to a future both wondrous . . . and terrible.

    The first three Warriors of the Lathar stories now in one bundle! 
     
    Captured by the Alien Lord -  
     
    He's big, sexy and even his muscles have muscles. Any other day, she'd climb him like a tree... If he hadn't captured her, and her entire base that is. 
     
    Sergeant Cat Moore has a little problem. Well, actually a big problem... a big alien war-group sized problem. When her base is attacked and boarded by a Lathar war group, she finds herself in the sights of their leader, Tarrick K'Vass. 
     
    The strong, not so silent and ruthless type, Tarrick's duty as a war commander means little time for himself. With no women of their own, a base full of human women is a bounty he can't ignore. Nor can he ignore the little human whose voice called out to him across the galaxy, a woman he'll stop at nothing to make his own. Even if it means a little blackmail...  
     
    Saved by the Alien Lord -  
     
    Earth girls might be popular...but they're definitely not easy. 
     
    Kidnapped by sexy aliens, Cat and the women of the Sentinel Five base are looking for a way home. Their captors might be ripped, hot warriors looking for that one special woman, but these girls have this little thing against being slaves. Even if their leader is well on his way to stealing Cat's heart as well as her body... 
     
    Then a new player enters the arena. A dangerous rival war-commander has challenged the K'Vass claim on Terran held space and all it's women. Tarrick K'Vass can't afford to let any of the earth women be captured, especially not his little human, Cat. 
     
    When his human is taken, he'll do anything to rescue her... Anything. Up to and including starting an intergalactic war. 
     
    Bonded to the Alien Lord -  
     
    Today is a good day to... get married? 
     
    Kidnapped by her very own alien hunk, Cat Moore is rapidly adapting to life as the chosen woman of bad-ass War Commander Tarrick K'Vass. It's not so bad. Her sexy alien has a thing about making sure her every need is met and has some very inventive ways of doing so. Until she gives him a bad case of mating marks around his wrist, and all bets are off. They're married without so much as a bended knee in sight, then summoned to the Imperial Court so the Emperor can bless their union. 
     
    Why? Because her sexy alien lover left one thing out when he introduced himself. Like being a freaking alien prince. 
     
    But someone doesn't want humans and lathar getting it on, and they certainly don't like the possibility of little human-lathar babies. In fact, they'd be more than happy if Cat and the other women didn't survive past the wedding. 
     
    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Try a bride whose alien wedding just got gatecrashed. Seems humans might be more like the Lathar than anyone thought... 
     
    **This bundle contains three previously released serial novellas: Captured by the Alien Lord, Saved by the Alien Lord, and Bonded to the Alien Lord. If you have already purchased these novellas, please do not purchase this bundle.**

    Having experienced more grief and tragedy than one person should have to bear in one lifetime, Detective Brooke Leighton has decided to leave her hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. Along with her ex-boyfriend, Nick Evans, they make the trip to the Canadian Rockies where his Pack is located. Nick has promised her answers, and she knows that only he and the Pack can help her through this transition. 
     
    The change in scenery isn’t an instant fix, however. 
     
    Brooke still struggles with accepting what she’s become: a werewolf. Even more, she struggles with the knowledge that it cost her the life of the man she loved. Brooke lives with constant nightmares of that night, and the only thing that helps ease her suffering is the one who caused her the most seven years ago: Nick. She shares a connection with him that she can’t quite explain; at first, it’s nothing more than familiarity before these feelings of betrayal slowly revert back to love and trust. 
     
    As if trying to control her urges isn’t enough, when they arrive at the manor, Brooke is met with more challenges than she originally thought. A jealous female, an aggressive full-blood, and lies make adjusting to this life almost impossible.  
     
    When the vampire coven they thought was defeated declares war on the Pack, can they come together as a team to save themselves, or will the secrets Brooke uncovers drive a wedge between her and her newfound family before they even stand a chance?
