Being sent to collect a space pirate’s stolen cargo seems like the break Lieutenant Leia Ballore needs from the boredom of her current job as Guard to the Executive Family on Nas. Discovering the man of her dreams isn’t part of the plan. But Detective Jake Marshall is off limits. He’s been kidnapped into a time and a galaxy he can’t possibly understand, and it’s her job to send him home. Whether she wants to or not.
Coming to in a grungy prison cell with no memory of how he or his partner got there marks a definite low point in Jake’s life. Meeting the stunning Lieutenant Ballore does wonders for improving his day. Until he discovers the truth of where he is and what’s happened to him. Despite the unbelievable circumstances, though, he’s still drawn to the smart, tough warrior sent to rescue him, and the heat between he and Leia is impossible to resist. Yet staying in her universe and ignoring his own duty back on Earth isn’t an option.
Hunted across the galaxy by slave traders, Jake and Leia must rely on each other to survive. But as the desire between them builds, igniting into an unstoppable passion, they’ll find the choice between duty and desire no longer so simple.

Can two adventure junkies find a future together?
Clare O’Malley’s ambitions have brought her to the very top of her field, a profession that requires her to lie and keep secrets even from those she loves. But to become a bonafide legend, she has to find the former Shifter support group leader and Naravan cult hero, Kira Farseaker and bring her back to Narava. No easy feat, even for someone of Clare’s considerable talents. To find Kira, Clare needs the help of notorious smuggler, Raf Tygran. The sexy-as-all-hell pirate’s reputation is well earned. But falling for someone like Raf is a guaranteed disaster for someone like Clare, and she can’t afford the distraction. No matter how tempting he is.
Raf knows Clare is a liar the minute they meet. Which is good for him because he loves liars, and the delectable Clare is a liar he wants to know better. She’s the kind of woman Raf could fall hard for, trouble with a capital T. And he likes trouble almost as much as he likes liars. Smuggling Clare off Narava to meet Kira Farseaker is a job he probably shouldn’t take. But the prospect of spending weeks aboard his ship with her is a game too tempting to refuse. He intends to meet her challenge, and seduce her sexy chaos into his bed. Maybe even his life.
Then a threat from Raf’s past rises up to strike, and an already dangerous mission turns deadly. Facing their ghosts and this new threat to the galaxy will take everything they’ve got. And nothing will ever be the same for Raf or Clare. But if they can survive, without starting a rebellion, they might just find a way to love each other.
Paradise (The Naravan Chronicles Book 4)
by Isabo Kelly on 2018-06-08
Security Chief Meiling Trudeau thought she was finished with conman Duncan McClane two years ago when he got tossed off FarMore Space Station for good. But he’s back, now one of the richest men in the galaxy, and looking to rekindle their relationship. Despite claiming he’s gone straight, Meiling knows from experience that con-artists never change. Unfortunately, the chemistry between them is as hot as ever and resisting him is almost impossible.
Duncan knew the minute he saw Meiling she was the love of his life. But convincing her he’s gone straight for her proves harder than cheating at a cheat-proof holo-card table. Stumbling across a huge vein of the rarest mineral in the galaxy has made Duncan a rich man, though, and that wealth gives him the resources he needs to prove to Meiling that she can depend on him to have her back. If he can earn her trust, he might just regain her love.
With chaos brewing in FarMore’s biggest resort casino, Meiling will have to decide if she can rely on Duncan—with her space station as well as her heart.
