Celia & Anne
Life is about survival–not romance–but her Vahking Prince never got the memo.
While I’m searching for my missing brother, I find myself in a dark alley with the wrong people. Too bad the hero that saves me is no better.
He thinks he can win me over with sweet words, but I show him that I’m a girl of action… by ditching his ass.
Unfortunately, fate isn’t easy to ignore. The Vahking Prince Rune’s blood Sang for me, and now I’m in his sights.
My family and my past keep me away from others, but Rune makes me forget all the lessons I learned to protect myself. Dammit.
Now, I’m starting to see there is only one destiny for me–at his side.
Will Rune be the one man who can break into my stone heart… or will my past push him away from me, too?
Humans are seen as weak. Helpless. Crude. And yet, I hold the heart of the Vahking King.
Thor found me battered and beaten—he believed me to be frail—but I taught that Vahking what it means to be human… To be fierce.
He nearly gives up his throne to be with me, but I can’t let that happen. Now, it’s time for me to show everyone what I am capable of. I will prove to this race that I am as strong as their warriors. I am meant to be with the Vahking.
Thor’s blood Sang for me. And the blood cannot be denied.
But when it comes time for the trials, something is wrong… My tasks are laden with traps. They are nearly the death of me. But as a human, I refuse to be defeated.
I have only two options: win my place at the side of the Vakhing King or… die.
Choler has yet to find his mate among human females and Thora hasn’t found hers among the Vakhings, but when they meet, sparks fly… from their weapons meeting in battle. Ouch!
There’s this tiny misunderstanding—well, attempted pillaging of women by the Vakhings—that turns into a kinda sorta kidnapping and suddenly Choler is involved in an intergalactic incident. Now he must use every ounce of his negotiating abilities as the Preor Ambassador and defuse the situation to avoid a massive war between Earth and the Vakhings.
Oh, and also convince his mate he’s not the enemy but truly his in every way possible. From the tip of her pert nose to the fullness of her breasts and the perfect roundness of her—ahem. She’s perfect in every way. She just also happens to hate Choler for the whole kidnapping thing. Dammit.
Faced with a tumultuous mating filled with emptiness, Choler must convince Thora he was an innocent bystander, but will she listen and soften her heart toward him?
Tyff wasn’t looking for love. He almost flew over it.
Tyff had always been a dedicated Preor warrior of the Third Fleet. His singular goal is to prove himself as a warrior and move up the chain of command. Yet he’s been overlooked time and again. Even more than advancement, he’s ached for a mate. Craved what he sees other Preor possess so effortlessly. But so far, the Knowing has remained absent—as has his mate.
When he’s tasked with flying over some human resistance-occupied fields, he takes his work seriously—believing in the future of combining the human and Preor species. He simply cannot understand the violence of humans and how brutal they are to each other.
It seems it only gets worse each day the Preor are present on planet Earth. Does Tyff even want a human mate considering they’re so selfish and reckless?
His choice is taken from him when he flies too near to Renay. Happy with her life in a small country town as a librarian, she’s a simple girl with simple needs.
Until Tyff gets close.
Now all bets are off and both of these souls are raging infernos of need and Knowing untill they get their hands on each other. All that pent up desire is going to make them pop. Then Tyff will understand that even with great brutality and violence, humans are capable of something even stronger.
Experiencing the Knowing is magical… until you have to deal with human in-laws…
Local news celebrity Sasha Dane and her mother are fixated on one goal—leverage their media presence to make life supremely difficult for the invading Preor. They want the aliens gone from Earth and for their unnatural hold on human females to end. Permanently. That’s how Sasha found herself at Preor Choosing Station Tau attending a Preor Choosing. Her job? Gather as much dirt as possible. If only that had gone according to plan…
Preor Healing Master Whelon never liked the human “cattle calls.” Where hordes of human females threw themselves at the attending Preor in hopes the Knowing would blossom. Nevertheless, he finds himself drawn to Choosing, pulled by an inexplicable force to attend. And that’s when it happened…
The Knowing. Desire. Want. Need. Hope…
Now, both Sasha and Whelon realize fate has a cruel streak. Sasha must contend with the differences between what she thought to be true—the Preor are an evil, women-stealing, vicious peoples—and reality… That the Preor cherish and love their mates and care for all human beings. Meanwhile, Whelon must realize that his fated mate has obstacles only she can fight.
Will Sasha overcome her mother’s teachings and embrace her Preor mate? Or will she deny the Knowing—deny Whelon—and curse them both to death?
He had thought he would never experience the Knowing. All he needed was the right woman.
After suffering a traumatic injury as a child, Dawn has lived a sheltered life under the shadow of tragedy. Despite her passion for botany, neither her family nor her limitations ever allowed her to pursue her dreams...until the day she encounters the Preor and they need help only she can provide.
Vende has grown weary. Weary of overseeing the engineering infrastructure for the Preor Third Fleet, weary of watching as his fellow warriors find their mates, and—after several failed Choosings—weary of trying to find his own. It's time he face facts and resign himself to the life of a solitary warrior. Then he meets Dawn and finally understands the full power of the Knowing.
Desire. Love. Need.
But destiny can be cruel to those it sidelines. With the fate of the Preor hanging in the balance, Vende and Dawn must face seemingly insurmountable odds to find their happily ever after--not to mention save the warrior race from extinction.
Will it be enough? Or will Dawn and Vende lose their love before it has a chance to fully blossom?
