Iska (My Single Alien - sci-fi romance adventure Book 4)

by Arcadia Shield on 2018-06-08

Furry alien with a foul-mouth and a tail that needs stroking seeks role-playing nerd for fun times. Love is not an option.

When a jaded alien and a nerdy role-playing human find themselves at the mercy of a dangerous alien game, they must put aside their fears and use their skills to stay alive.

Iska Matusa is pissed. At himself, at the world, at everything. His latest bounty is proving hard to pin down and he's losing his cool. The only thing that calms him is the long hours he spends role-playing with the elusive, gorgeous Warrior Princess. The things he'd do to her if only she was real.

Avril Anwell spends her days keeping her head down and her mouth shut. A life of being abandoned and ignored means she knows that's the safe thing to do. Only in her kick-ass role of Warrior Princess can she be her true self. She's fearless, confident, and sexy as hell.

It also helps that she plays alongside a hot, mysterious gamer called Fang. She'd love to know the real Fang but is too afraid to get close. Rejection kicks like a mule.

When the game turns into a real-life nightmare for Avril, Iska puts everything he's worked for on the line to fight for her life. He won't stop fighting until she's in his arms and stroking his tail.

This is book 4 in the My Single Alien sci-fi romance adventure universe. It's full of adventure, lots of messy action, and a whole lot of alien love!

by Arcadia Shield on 2018-02-05

A lonely tech expert. A scarred, silky-voiced former government agent. With their combined skills, they must tackle a dangerous new threat that could destroy Earth. But it's not just their lives at risk, it's their hearts.

Jude Ember thrives on keeping his brothers, and everyone in the bunkers, safe. He works hard, loving what he does. But he has a weakness: Octavia. She’s under his skin, she haunts his dreams, and he longs to be with her. The trouble is, she’s just a voice on a pirate radio. They’ve never met. But he’s hooked. He has to meet her. A new threat from the State gives him the reason he needs to draw her closer. Will she live up to the fantasy he has created?

Octavia has survived alone for almost two years. She's a shadow in the night, never staying in the same place for long. As a former government spy, skilled in infiltrating terrorist cells, she’s used to doing things her own way. Since the State took control, she's covertly run Flame Radio.

Kade (The Ember Quest Book 2)

by Arcadia Shield on 2017-10-06

Near genius code breaker and hacker, Kade Ember is struggling. As the steady, switched on brother in the group, he hates to admit he needs help. Every day the battle intensifies against the mysterious, and deadly, State. There’s always more security to break through, more systems to hack, and a pile of finds to scan. He’s lost in his work, and uncertain why he’s still fighting. The State, a shadowy, violent new leader, who wiped out the planet’s rulers and destroyed the dragons, spin tyranny through people’s lives like it’s normal. They destroy and ruin anyone who speaks against them – and their top target is the Ember brothers. But Kade never rests, dedicated to ensuring their resistance movement remains hidden. But how far can he push before something breaks and even he won’t be able to fix it?

Then a mysterious message from a woman in Kade’s past jerks him into action. She’s living among the fierce rule of the State, doing their bidding, and helping them destroy and subdue the population. But a single word from her makes him realize there’s something bigger to fight for.

Honor Davenport has two goals: keep her smart mouth shut and use her DNA knowledge to remove disease from the world. As a key figure in the genetics company, Intergen, Honor unwittingly provides the State with knowledge of human DNA, and it’s manipulated to increase their power. But her curious mind is her downfall, as she speculates on unusual DNA she’s analyzed. Suddenly, she’s branded an enemy and has the threat of death hanging over her. Her message to Kade was a desperate one, a last gasp to hold onto life before the State destroy her. She never thought he’d creep through the night, risk everything, and set her free. But Honor has no clue what the Ember brothers are truly fighting for, and she’s oblivious to the danger the State presents.

When they join forces, it’s more than chemical reactions drawing Kade and Honor together. Kade wants Honor by his side, but first, he has to make her believe everything the State stands for is a lie. But in doing so, he risks her life. A chance to show her the truth puts them in peril, but stubborn Honor won’t stop probing and questioning and discovers much more than a lie. She discovers love, loyalty, and the truth.

Heath (sci-fi romance - The Ember Quest Book 1)

by Arcadia Shield on 2017-09-24

When the world falls, heroes will rise and fight for truth, justice, and their hearts.

Heath Ember is a fighter. He leads a group of stubborn, headstrong, brilliant warriors who fight to destroy the mysterious, deadly world leaders, restore the rightful powers, and protect the innocent. That includes his former colleague, the smart, and stubborn Annie, who makes him pause and wonder if there could be love among the ruins. Could there be hope in the dust, and a chance of happiness that seems like a distant, twisted memory? They find themselves fighting together and battling the State and their desire. Heath realizes love and Annie are the most important things. She ignites a fire in him he’s stamped on, and he never wants it to die. Whatever it takes, he will keep Annie safe.

In a world tipped on its head, Professor Annie Grimwald—a distinguished lecturer at Helstone University—is anxious. Her father, an eccentric dragon relic hunter, is missing. She’s tried everything to find him, and won’t rest until she's discovered what happened. In a moment of rashness, Annie contacts disgraced, brilliant, and gorgeous Heath Ember. Once a maverick, passionate lecturer, he's now ostracized and branded a criminal for arguing the State are a lie and an aberration who must be destroyed. But Annie is desperate, and Heath is someone she trusts. But at what cost?

When Heath and his brothers accept Annie’s plea, they find themselves in the brutal Badlands, infiltrating a state-run prison and discovering just how strange the world has become. Annie insists on going on this mission, determined to help her father and figure out why her memories conflict with the truth from the State. What do her flashes of memory containing dragons mean? And why does the State rule so fiercely against anyone who questions them?
