The Refugee Ruse (The Gaian Consortium Series Book 7)

by Christine Pope on 2018-10-04

A deserter. A grifter. A stolen ship. And one last chance for freedom…

With the remote Zeta Tau prison station about to be pounded into space dust — and with no help coming from Gaia’s crumbling star empire — Captain Landon Beck races to release one particular inmate before she’s abandoned to the tender mercies of the invading pirates and mercenaries.

Thanks to that bit of temporary insanity — or maybe a crusading streak that refuses to die — he has company on the badly damaged, antiquated transport ship he hopes to fly to anonymity and freedom: Dhani Warlow, a small-time grifter, dark-eyed and delicate, with an uncommon amount of sass.

After five years surviving in the underbelly of Gaian society, Dhani has seen the worst of the Consortium’s crimes against man, Zhore, and dozens of other peoples across the galaxy. Even so, in Landon she senses a man of honor beneath the hated uniform.

As they limp from system to system on their quest to reach Iradia and freedom, Landon and Dhani earn one another’s trust and respect, finally taking refuge in the only safe place left — each other’s arms. But as the Consortium crumbles around them, they might not survive one last attempt on their lives….

Note: This is the final book in this SFR series. Although each book has a standalone romance, the events going on in the background have built toward what we see in The Refugee Ruse, which is the looming collapse of the Consortium’s star empire.


Beast (The Gaian Consortium Series Book 0)

by Christine Pope on 2018-09-08

He’s hidden himself from the world. But can he hide from her?

Ever since a racing accident disfigured him forever, scientist Raymond Killian has locked himself away in a base on one of Neptune’s moons, working feverishly on his latest research project.

Newly minted Ph.D. Nora Whitaker comes to Triton to assist Dr. Killian with his cybernetic research. What she never expected to find was a man whose soul was so in tune with hers. But the connection they share may be destroyed forever if they don’t take one last, desperate chance.

Note: Although this novella is set in the Gaian Consortium universe, it takes place roughly a hundred and fifty years before the events of Blood Will Tell, et al., at a time when the Consortium was just beginning to expand into the galaxy outside Gaia’s solar system and hadn’t yet developed the star-spanning empire seen in the series’ other books.



Gaian Consortium, Books 1-3: Blood Will Tell, Breath of Life, and The Gaia Gambit

by Christine Pope on 2018-03-19

Three adventurous science fiction romance books from Christine Pope’s Gaian Consortium series:

BLOOD WILL TELL

Welcome to Iradia, where the Gaian Consortium looks the other way if enough money changes hands, and the best way to ensure a long life is to secure passage off-world....

When Miala Fels’ father is murdered by a vicious crime lord, she decides the best way to get her revenge is to hack the accounts of the man responsible and bleed his hoard of ill-gotten loot dry. Her plans go awry when Mast is killed by a rival, and she ends up nursing one of his men, the notorious mercenary Eryk Thorn, back to health. Her only thought is to have Thorn help her get off-world in exchange for half of Mast’s treasure. The last thing she expects is to lose her heart to him...or to have the consequences of that love change her life forever. (The Gaian Consortium Series, Volume 1)

BREATH OF LIFE

Anika Jespers, a homesteader’s daughter on a Gaian colony, thinks she’s destined for a dull existence on her family’s farm. But when her father makes an impossible bargain with their neighbor, one of the alien Zhore, she faces a future different from anything she could have possibly imagined.

The familiar story of Beauty and the Beast takes on new life in this SF romance novella, with the Beauty a homesteader’s daughter and the Beast an alien on a faraway colony world. (The Gaian Consortium Series: Volume 2)

THE GAIA GAMBIT

Humans and Stacians have been sworn enemies for centuries, so Gaian Captain Lira Jannholm has no reason to trust Stacian starship commander Rast sen Drenthan when he proposes a bargain that will end a dangerous confrontation over a resource-rich planet. When Lira finds herself disgraced and discharged from duty through no fault of her own, she joins forces with Rast to discover the truth behind her reversal of fortune.

Running from ever-multiplying enemies in a ship stolen from one of the most powerful criminals in the sector, Rast and Lira discover they are pawns in a conspiracy that reaches into the highest levels of government and has put them in mortal danger. The secret they uncover could change the balance of power in the galaxy forever...not to mention destroy their own future together. (The Gaian Consortium Series: Volume 3)
