Hard as Rock (Khargals of Duras Book 2)

by Stephanie West on 2019-02-19

After the loss of her parents, Meline scrapes together the cash to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Armed with her great-grandfather’s journal, retracing her heritage should be exciting, yet she can't shake the frightening feeling someone’s been watching her from the moment she arrived in the old city. Then Roc shows up just when she needs him, offering to help. He's sexy-as-sin, wealthy, and well-connected, but there’s something he’s hiding.

Roc needs to locate his Khargal sire's lost sigil before all hell breaks loose, and Meline holds a journal with the answers. After centuries of "liberating" art, he's never thought twice about lying or stealing, but when the captivating woman appears at the site where his father's buried, he hesitates. Something about her has gotten underneath his stoney exterior, and he doesn't know what to do.

When a clandestine group hunting the sigil emerges, Roc and Meline must face them together before the sigil turns everything to ash. Yet the challenge may not be finding the sigil so much as breaking down the wall guarding Roc's heart.

----------
Hard as Rock is a standalone novel part of the collaborative series the Khargals of Duras.

A thousand years ago, a Khargal scouting party left Duras, only to crash on a planet called Earth.

Injured and outnumbered, the stranded Khargals hid among stone effigies and observed the slow evolution of the planet’s primitive inhabitants. With no means of returning to Duras, they watched from their shadowy perches and faded into legend, becoming the mythical gargoyles.

Until today. Long after any hope for rescue had died, the distress signal has finally been answered.

It's time to go home.

Warrior's Plight (Cadi Warriors Book 6)

by Stephanie West on 2018-10-06

Vintor crossed the universe to save the human race, except things didn't go quite as planned. He awoke to find himself imprisoned in a human stronghold, fighting against the drugs they used to subdue him. That’s where he found her, his enemy and his only salvation.

Working for a secret branch of the government had taken its toll on Maya, but there was no way out, not if she wanted to hold back Armageddon and protect everyone she loved. The beast of a red man from an unknown race who showed up on her operating table only highlighted what she’d fought to repress—she couldn’t spend another day in this living hell.

When her own people served her up like a sacrificial lamb, Maya squeezed her eyes shut and waited for death’s release as the demonic alien pinned her to the wall. She never expected to find redemption in the arms of a captive alien or a love so strong she was willing to take on the world to free them both. Getting lost in the embrace of her warrior was a wonderful plight.

Warrior’s Plight picks up shortly after Vintor and Ashtoret land on Earth and runs concurrent to Warrior’s Purpose, Cadi Warriors 5.

Caution – This story features a scene where Vintor, while drugged out of his mind, mates Maya. It may be a trigger for some readers.

Warrior's Purpose (Cadi Warriors Book 5)

by Stephanie West on 2018-05-28

Abby has fought long and hard against the undertow of grief trapping her family. Her sister, Providence, went missing nearly a year earlier, yet their father adamantly refuses to abandon the search. Abby struggles to maintain hope, but the loss hurts too much and life must go on, right? Finally beginning to accept her new normal, she’s unprepared for the arrival of two strange men who claim to know her sister while spouting stories of alien invaders. Worse, the giants looked more like demons than aliens with their blood red skin, and their unbelievable tale is just as cruel.

Ashtoret was honored to be chosen for the mission that would save the human homeworld, although that wasn’t his only reason for going to Earth. He made a solemn oath to his friend Providence that he would bring word to her family she was safe. Never in his wildest dreams did Ashtoret think he’d discover his singular purpose for being on the hostile blue planet.

Caught in the crossfire, Abby doesn’t know what to think, but she can’t stand by when all hell rains down upon their strange visitors. With threats closing in from all quarters, Ashtoret must fight to hold onto his sexy, brave human.

Like all my tales, Warrior’s Purpose is intended for adults.


Warrior's Pain (Cadi Warriors Book 4)

by Stephanie West on 2017-08-26

Riley was sick of constantly getting the short end of the stick. If it wasn’t enough that she’d been sent to prison for her brother’s crimes, then got abducted by aliens; being hauled onto the auction block certainly took the cake.

“You know what, fine, bring it on!”

Unwittingly, Riley goaded Fate into throwing everything it could at her, and it did. The sadistic b****, Destiny, put not only the lives of thousands into her trembling hands, but then it twisted the knife, making Riley fall for a man who was untouchable.

“Life isn’t fair,” Riley gave a slight bitter laugh, her chin quivering. “It culls the sick and the weak from the herd with cruel efficiency. It doesn’t care if you can’t handle the avalanche that it rains down on you. It doesn’t know the meaning of mercy. It takes and takes, till you have nothing left to give, then casts you aside.”

But Riley refused to break under the weight of it all. She couldn’t. The human colony, and Earth itself, depended on her. Riley just wished she could trust her instincts about the massive red-skinned alien who showed up at the auction to buy her. Unfortunately, she’d been hurt one too many times to take the risk, and the secrets she kept were more important than the suffering of a lone individual.

Cyprian turned his back on his family’s less than honorable legacy, choosing instead to dedicate his life to serving the people of Cadi. It was that dogged focus on his duty, that led Cyprian to the off-world auction, playing the part of a traitor. His mission was to find who was behind a series of abductions, and bring everyone safely back home.

Except rescuing the tattooed, dark haired human didn’t happen the way it should have. With her unbreakable spirit and hot body, Riley stripped Cyprian of the control he fought so hard to maintain. Yet the warrior found he couldn’t live without the pain in the a**.

“You are mine. I never lied about that,” Cyprian growled at Riley. “You know it’s true. Stop lying to yourself. Don’t force me to tie you up, because you know I will. I may not be able to get you to spill all your secrets, but there’s one thing I’ll force from your lips.” It wasn’t an idle threat. Cyprian would seduce Riley till she admitted she was his.

Discover how Riley and Cyprian drive each other mad and fall madly in love, while putting it all on the line to save their people, in Warrior’s Pain.
