Oh, and it's Christmas soon.

It's just another day in the life of our fearsome Kordolians and their human mates. A light-hearted peek into Tarak and Abbey's new life on Earth.

Sanctuary is a 43000 word "slice-of-life" novella set in the Dark Planet Warriors Universe. It ties in with the current series and has a HFN ending.

Catalyst (Hidden Planet Book 2)

by Anna Carven on 2018-12-30

Stranded on a remote planet with no hope of escape.
Stuck in the unforgiving wilderness, where monsters hunt in the skies above.
No signal, no spacecraft, no translator.

Esania thought she and her people were escaping to the sanctuary planet of Torandor. Instead, she's ended up on a wild, uncharted nightmare called Khira, where the violet-skinned savages who guard them are just as poisonous as the deadly flora and fauna.

And the pale-winged demon who's just dropped from above might be the most dangerous of them all.

Catalyst is a full-length science-fiction romance novel (86000 words). It contains violence, swearing, explicit sex scenes, and aliens! It's definitely recommended for readers aged 18 and over.

Shattered Silence (Darkstar Mercenaries Book 2)

by Anna Carven on 2018-07-29

Enki Zakanin just wants peace and quiet. He's completed his mission, and on the journey back to the Kordolian Fleet Station, he'd prefer to be left alone so he can manage the literal demon inside his head.


So when a strange distress call breaks the silence, his first instinct is to ignore the signal. Why would anyone be foolish enough to broadcast an open signal in the Ninth?

My name is Layla dela Cruz. I need your help.

A human? What in Kaiin's Hells is she doing this far into Sector Nine?

Now, somehow, he has to go and get her.

After all, he's given her his word.

Shattered Silence is Book 2 in the Darkstar Mercenaries series. It features a lethal silver-skinned alien hero, a human heroine, and the usual action, violence, steamy sex scenes, and HFN ("happy for now") ending.

Taming Chaos (Darkstar Mercenaries Book 1)

by Anna Carven on 2018-04-20

Torin Mardak came to Zarhab Groht to hunt. Some idiot's been selling Callidum weapons on the black market, and he's been tasked with finding the traitor.

The illegal trading station isn't exactly Torin's favorite place in the Nine Galaxies. It's dirty, chaotic, and full of thieves and murderers, but as an elite Kordolian First Division warrior, he's the most dangerous thing on this floating cesspit, and he won't let anything stand in his way.

But when he encounters a group of humans who really, really shouldn't be here, his priorities might just have to change, because one of them is about to get betrayed in the worst possible way...

And she just so happens to be exactly his type.

Taming Chaos is Book 1 in the Darkstar Mercenaries series. It features a lethal silver-skinned alien hero, a curvy human heroine, and the usual action, violence, steamy sex scenes, and HFN ("happy for now") ending.

A Darkside Interlude: Darkstar Mercenaries Book 0.5

by Anna Carven on 2018-02-05

Commander Iskar Gar-Kurai isn't impressed by humans or their backwater planet. If he had his way, he'd be working closer to home, on a planet where it wasn't so infernally hot...

But orders are orders, especially when they come from the very top.

If he's going to be on Earth for the long term, Iskar needs to learn more about its strange inhabitants. That's why he's reluctantly agreed to hit the streets of Darkside. It's an observational visit, nothing more.

So why has this blue-haired temptress targeted him of all people, and what is he going to do about it?

Criminals must be punished, and Iskar has always done things by the book.

A Darkside Interlude is a 35000 word novella set after the Dark Planet Warriors series. It can be read as a standalone, but it'll probably make more sense if you read the original series first.

Destroyer (Hidden Planet Book 1)

by Anna Carven on 2017-12-12

A hair-raising ambush.
A malfunctioning ship.
A distant, uncharted part of the Universe.

Calexa Acura and her crew of misfits are lost, and their ship is in desperate need of repairs. When a massive spacecraft appears in their radius, they're helpless to resist its magnetic pull.

The terrifying ship is bigger than any craft she's seen in her life, and somehow, she doubts its occupants will turn out to be the friendly sort.

First Encounters are always better when they're amicable, but if necessary, Calexa and her crew will fight.

It's what they've always done.

Destroyer is a full-length science-fiction romance novel (95000 words), and the first book in a new series. It contains violence, swearing, explicit sex scenes, and aliens! It's definitely recommended for readers aged 18 and over.

Dark Planet Warriors: Earth Files

by Anna Carven on 2017-10-31

As much as Rykal thought she was sheer perfection in that outfit, he wanted to flick out a claw and gently slice the garment from top to bottom so he could pay homage to her naked form.
She wouldn’t escape his tender clutches.
But he would behave himself for now, because this particular outing was apparently an important event in Human culture.
He was about to meet the mother of his mate.

* * *

The Earth Files are short stories set in the world of the Dark Planet Warriors. You can expect sweet, steamy, and offbeat stories about the colorful characters from the main series. This book is intended as an accompaniment to Dark Planet Warriors, and may contain the occasional spoiler. It features Arin and Rykal, our protagonists from Forged in Shadow, and it’s set after Brilliant Starlight, when the Kordolians have returned to Earth.
Although it’s a spinoff, it isn’t the spinoff. That’s coming soon.

Brilliant Starlight (Dark Planet Warriors Book 8)

by Anna Carven on 2017-07-09

We're back on Silence, orbiting the Dark Planet while my husband handles unfinished business on Kythia. For some reason, he seems a little bit tense. According to Tarak, Kythian politics can be complicated. I just hope things don't get too complicated, because I don't want to be stuck here for too long. A warship isn't really the best place to raise a child.

The only way to keep Abbey and Ami safe is to bring down the Empire. Afterwards, it is the statesmen and scholars who will rebuild our civilization. I'm just here to provide the muscle, but above all, I'm here to keep my mate and my child safe. If anything or anyone dares to threaten them...
They know how I will respond.
The problem is that not all enemies can be taken down by force.

Warning: This book is a science-fiction alien romance. It contains swearing, violence, sensual sex scenes, and silver aliens with fangs. It's definitely recommended for readers aged 18 and over.

Brilliant Starlight is Book 8 in the Dark Planet Warriors series. It will make more sense if you've read the other books in the series beforehand, but that's probably not absolutely essential.
