All Ashlan Moone, overworked and underpaid developer extraordinaire needs to get her virtual avatar program into production is money. Lots of money. And Cameron Shepard, Chief Technological Officer of the Shepard Group and one of New York’s most eligible bachelors is just the man who can help her. Hacking into his company’s virtual gala to get his attention seems like a good idea … at the time.
Cameron should be alarmed at the security breach the beautiful party crasher presented, but he’s too intrigued by her boldness to care. Tracking her down is easy enough for someone like him and finding out that Ashlan’s a kindred spirit in hacking and virtual reality sets off a flurry of emotions that have nothing to do with business.
But a relationship is hard to do when half the couple is a billionaire and the other a cubicle drone at a rival corporation who won’t let her forget just who she works for.

The last memory Anissa Alto has is watching the destruction of the research ship Spindle by a rival scientist and being unable to do anything about it. The next thing she knows, she’s waking up in an unfamiliar sickbay one hundred years later, surrounded by a crew of xeno-archaeologists led by Dr. Benedict Sawyer.
Sawyer’s plan was simple: dig up the artifact resting in the bottom of a pit on an uninhabited planet, become an academic superstar, and never teach undergraduates again. The artifact turning out to be a woman from a neighboring star system put into stasis throws his dreams of student-free research off-kilter, as does Anissa herself.
Anissa knows who destroyed the Spindle and why, and that the perpetrator is still out there a century later. But as she and Sawyer investigate, it becomes clear that the reason for the ship’s destruction is more than a case of scientific rivalry taken to the extreme and something far more sinister.

When Kai and Brya fled their home planet for Alliance space as teenagers, their lives took dramatically different paths: Kai joined the Alliance Fleet, and Brya found herself tangled in a smuggling operation.
Twelve years later, Brya has reformed and wants to leave that life behind, but she has one more illegal run to complete before she can. A chance encounter with Kai at Karys Station means she doesn’t have to make that last trip alone. But old feelings have a way of resurfacing when there are few ways to pass the time on board a clunky old space freighter, and Brya and Kai discover they have more than smugglers to worry about.
Does a freighter captain with a criminal past really have a chance at a future with a law-abiding Fleet officer, especially when she broke his heart years before?
