My mission was to lead a squad to the spacecraft where the females had crashed. We were to search and strip the crash site of all its power sources and return them to Huren. Easy enough for a seasoned warrior like myself, except I hadn’t counted on the Nuttaki horde who had swarmed us. Outnumbered, I was knocked unconscious and taken captive.
I woke alone and with the salty scent of the sea drilling into my sinus cavities, and I knew where I had been taken. My days were numbered if I couldn’t free myself. As I lay shackled, all I could think of was returning to the female who had finally awakened me, to return to my Gia before the Yulineon’s return. I would do anything to return to her, even if I had to forge an alliance with my enemy.
Nekko was lost, and I was, once again, alone. He was the one person on this dangerous, alien world who had made me feel safe. He was my steel, the sword that protected me against my fears. I mourned the lack of courage to tell him how I felt. I had wanted to, so badly. Nekko was fearsome, and I was just a virgin who had no experience with boys, much less with a formidable warrior elf. If the search team couldn’t find him, the moment might be lost forever.
Author Note: The Warriors of Valose Saga is meant to be read in order. Each book does have a HEA. However, this is a saga and titled accordingly because the story takes place over a lengthy period of time.
After losing all our females, I didn't think life could get any worse until I was stripped of my crown and exiled by my twin brother. With my world in turmoil, my spirit mate crashed into my life when I needed her the most. She was not of Valose but a stranger from another world.
Newly awakened, my ancillary heart beats for one reason only—to keep her safe. Now I must protect her from old enemies as well as new yet what came with her posed a unique danger that can't be fought with swords. There was nothing I wouldn't do for her. Unfortunately, what she wanted the most would tear apart my very soul.
I thought the abduction had been bad enough, but the crash-landing nearly killed me. Stranded on an alien world, all I wanted was to find a way to get myself and the other girls home. When the solution presented itself in the form of a kilt-wearing, hopeless romantic with serious muscles, sexy elf ears, and the belief that soul mates truly existed… Well, I was no longer in a huge rush to leave.
Everything had been lost in a single blast. Fellow warriors I'd known my whole life, taken before my very eyes, including the one I had trusted the most. As I picked up the pieces of what was left of my clan, betrayal had begun to surface until I had no use for the crown I had been bequeathed.
Anger had become my sole companion as I trusted no others. The truth lay in the ruins of my home. With a new threat looming on the horizon, I was resolute in my determination to go after it. Then my spirit tossed me a distraction of the most feminine variety. Why her? She was even more bitter than me.
Obsessed with finding a way off this death rock, there was absolutely nothing that could sway me from my goal—not even him. Especially not him! Definitely not the biggest, brooding a-hole on the planet. Like me, he had a reason to be pissed off, but that didn't mean I wanted to be stuck with him for eternity.
Then he goes and does something colossally stupid, and I couldn't help myself but follow.
I had lost one spirit mate, and I refused to lose another. She didn't know it yet, but one way or another, I was going to make her mine. She was stolen from me and I would gladly risk my own life to get her back. With a new enemy ruling in the city of Huren, there was no safe place. What we stumbled upon was worse than any of us could have imagined. Reunited with my female, the only way to safety was perilous. In the end, I would have to kill her in order to save her.
What happened on Valose stayed on Valose. I was not above some serious fooling around, but I had to resist going all the way. Why? Because sex equaled an unbreakable mated bond here, and I wanted off this freak show of a planet. Now that I was back in serious trouble guess who came to my rescue? The bristly, surly, otherworldly gorgeous male who I could hardly resist. How could I evade his heady seduction when he had a secondary heart that beat only for me?
Author Note: The Warriors of Valose is meant to be read in order.
War with the gray invaders was imminent, and an even bigger threat loomed beyond the stars. We had obtained more powerful weapons and had a spacecraft at our disposal. For the first time in Valosian history, all three clans had reached a temporary accord to fight as one for the good of our world. Even with all that, it still might not be enough.
I worried over the survival of my species, and even more so for the future of the abducted human females—especially one in particular. My Elise—the one who awakened me—had a disability, making her more vulnerable than the others in my dangerous world. It would be a great honor to be her protector as she was my only light in the impending darkness that was to come. I knew she felt the yearning of her spirit to join with mine, but she held herself back, and I had been too afraid of her answer to ask why.
As I watched her form silent words with elegant hands, a smile glided across my face. I felt like a fool to have not thought of this before, but what my spirit mate referred to as a disability on her world could be the key to winning the war on mine.
Vallon was in complete possession of my heart. His eyes drank me in as if he couldn't get enough of the sight of me. There was nothing I wanted more than to bond with him and be his spirit mate, but with my disability, I was a serious liability. I knew he would die trying to protect me, and his world was a most dangerous place. I couldn't allow him to give his life for mine.
Not only that, but he was of another species—one that lives considerably longer than mine. Now that we knew babies were possible on Valose, what if I was taking away his chance of finding a mate in a female closer to his own species?
I had been abducted by aliens, survived a crash-landing in a spaceship--none of which I, thankfully, remembered. Then, an alien medic--who looked like an elf from The Lord of the Rings--miraculously healed my injuries in record time. I made it through all that and even a trek through a deadly jungle to relative safety.
Just when I was beginning to feel like myself, I was whacked over the head and--once again--abducted. Only this time I knew my abductor, but catastrophe struck, and I was left on my own in the wilds of the jungle with only my wits to keep me alive. Injured and weaponless, how long would I last on my own?
After my colleague and I stumbled upon the unimaginable, he was brutally murdered before my very eyes. I managed to escape the city of Huren before I succumbed to the same fate, taking with me the truth of the gray invaders.
In the jungle, I found the impossible. As a Royal Medic, I had treated everything from common ailments to gravely injured warriors with extreme proficiency, but the unconscious female in my arms had me baffled. She was definitely another species. What was more shocking was the call of her spirit to mine.
My spirit mate had eyes for another, yet her spirit called to mine. While my ancillary heart pumped andrenalyne through my veins, I warred with my instincts to pummel the male she favored, but her preference can't be forced. She must choose me.
Another battle takes precedence to mine when an unimagined conflict wages in the sky above us. The clouds burned with the battle as their ash rained down on our heads, making my role in the survival of my species paramount. It was vital that I tempered my rage, so I could work together with the male I wanted to thrash.
A nerdy girl from the inside out, I had never been faced with having two males vying for my attention. Never considered a pretty girl, it's both strange and exhilarating to feel so desired. Who should I choose? The male I've grown attached or the newcomer who called to my soul?
There was no time to savor my novel situation. With the safety of so many resting on the success of our mission, I must set aside my personal needs until later. For now, the three of us must work together as a team to penetrate the dome so the warriors can retake the city of Huren.
Alien abductions are total crap!
At least, that’s what I used to think. Now that I've woken to discover I've become victim to an interstellar trafficking ring, I don't have any other choice but to believe. Saved by a spacecraft full of gorgeous alien males, I must find a way home. Yet, these males have other plans for me, and I discover too late my true purpose. Daunting as it all feels, the more time I spend with these enticing males, the less Earth feels like where I belong.
Kat's Story (books 5-7)
A Nomadican male with a bad reputation.
A human woman on her own in the vastness of space.
Will she play his victim, or teach him a lesson he will never forget?
I traveled the stars alone for what seems like forever. It's been a long time since I last laid eyes on a Nomadican male, and this one is as arrestingly gorgeous as they come. Captivated by his feline gaze, my body roars to life at the scent of his musk. Rocked and shaken to my core, I want nothing more than a taste of him. Until he takes me captive and commandeers my ship. Attraction aside, this male does not know whom he's messing with. If he thinks for one second, I'll submit to his will; he's got another thing coming.
After my home world of Riosis was destroyed, thieving to survive became a new way of life. One that I have easily adapted. On the run from a Yulineon patrol, an opportunity sashay's by in a venomous disguise meant to fool the masses. Something about the masquerading female triggers a feral need deep within me that I never realized was there. Aside from my undeniable craving to claim her, the female owns a means for my escape. Once I take possession of her vessel, I find that I have greatly underestimated my captive and wake to find myself shackled. In the face of a common enemy, we forge an alliance. From there, we are swept into a torrent of unpredictable circumstances that leaves me forever changed. After all we have been through, I am challenged to succeed in the greatest theft of my life. To steal the heart of the one I love.
Her face had haunted me ever since she had wriggled out of my hold. I had returned, and my mission had been to honor the human females who had perished in the crash, scavenge what I could from the ship, and find the one who had gotten away. Before I could catch her again, I had been recalled. The settlement had fallen under attack, and my clan of exiles was on the move. Time was running out, and my spirit mate continued to evade me. Torn between duty and the pull of my spirit to hers, my ancillary heart wouldn't allow me to leave her behind.
I had no memory of who I was or how I had gotten here. I had woken up strapped to a table surrounded by gray freaks with slashing mouths and bulbous heads. I had gotten loose when we had crash-landed. Now I was hiding, hoping my memory returned and trying to find a way off this broken-down spacecraft. Then he found me, the silver-haired one. He wasn't like the others, but neither was he human. Something inside me called to him, but how could I trust a stranger when I was, also, a stranger to myself?
My clan had harbored the enemy from the stars. We had something they wanted, so we had struck a deal that had turned sour. Now that our end of the bargain had come due, we had been scrambling for an alternative payment when one, literally, had dropped out of the sky.
So, I had been sent on a mission to deliver our end of the deal. But the more of the truth I learned, the more wrong my mission had felt. Then there had been her. Isobel. An unexpected and delectable complication who had hated the very sight of me.
My mission had changed with the beat of my awakened heart, and now I must convince my spirit mate she was mine, find a way to join the exiles to help save Valose, all while saving my clan from itself.
There was nothing worse than an arrogant man. Yet, Tikkot wasn't a man but a Valosian warrior from a rival clan with a cocky smirk and a sultry stare. I had no reason to trust him and no reason to like him. So then, why did my heart flutter every time our eyes met?
My goal to return home had never wavered. Yet, the longer I remained on this world, the more unreachable my goal seemed. The planet of Valose was insanely dangerous even before the addition of the gray aliens. Then, just when I thought nothing more could possibly happen to me, Tikkot tossed me over his shoulder, caveman style, stealing me away.
I would have to break every Moktian law to claim my female.
War was imminent on the small, blue planet the humans call Earth. I was only meant to guide the human geneticists toward the answers she sought to avoid the brewing global conflict. But the more time I spent with the brilliant female, the more my attraction to her grows and the more reluctant I became to suppress my existence from her memories.
I assumed I was alone in my endeavors until an otherworldly visitor turned up in the lab I thought lived only in my dreams. His brilliant mind hadn't been my subconscious thoughts, and his sensual touches hadn't been the product of my wicked imagination. No. He was real! And he was sent here to help our world.
