Strike Force Cyberwarriors: Ganymede Survivors Romance (Ganymede Survivors Romance Collection)

by Val Roberts on 2019-06-25

They were strikers who fought from the Sol system network – hackers, gremlins, psychops, ghosts in the code. Then they were called in as peacekeepers when the Ganymede Mining employees revolted against the company, but a friendly fire hardware malfunction shelled their bodies. Luckily, they weren’t at home at the time, and their bodies could be repaired.

Years later, they’re sleepwalking through life either in the service or retired from it, and a few good women…wake them up, while helping them solve the mystery of the root cause of their temporary deaths.


Open Mike at Club Bebop

Travertine Garcia is dead broke and Luna City’s air tax is due in the morning. She turns to her last hope, the open mike at Club Bebop. After a perfect performance in deep netdive, she flatlines and owner Joe “Glitch” Bannister has to get her to life support while she reintegrates. She’s everything he didn’t know he needed, a deep-dive performer with an ancient-tech interface who can’t carry a tune outside the net.

When the Blue Dragon gang kidnaps her while he’s off chasing down a rumor about the Ganymede conflict that got him temporarily killed, Joe’s ready to fight for the woman and the club; but it’s going to take both of them to save the venerable stage and each other.


Getting Lucky

Lucinda “Lucky” Burbank, multibillionaire Luther Burbank’s only heir, is broke and stuck on the moon, working two menial jobs to pay air tax and occasionally eat and look for evidence her stepmother arranged her late father’s accident.

Alexei “Sasha” Davidoff is babysitting Club Bebop and investigating the vid clip that might show the Ganymede Incident’s first stage. Someone else is in the archive, but he/she/it runs; he finally corners it in the Bebop office and it’s Lucky Burbank, who he sort of had a brotherly crush on while his body was rebuilding.

It’s going to take both of them together—with some help from Ganymede’s ghosts—to solve the mystery of what caused the friendly fire disaster seven years ago.


Kindness of Strangers

The last thing Chandra Ramasamy remembers is the burn of a bullet hitting her chest after hitting the escape pod eject button. Now she’s in a net-avatar conference room with a military officer telling her she’s been in bad cryosleep for seven and a half years.

Can she piece together what happened after her memory stopped and help him figure out what killed him and his soldiers? Well, the MarsCorp thugs didn’t quite manage to kill her seven years ago, and now she has the Strike Force on her side. He’s a little stiff, but deep down he’s a gooey-hearted mother hen. She can work with that, particularly if she can help take down MarsCorp as payback.

Always make sure your murder victim is truly dead…striker payback is usually with interest.

Strike Force Colonel Rahmsin Singh is almost as much machine as man, and he wants to know the root cause. Unfortunately, the woman who can tell him that is in deep cryosleep...her body mostly a freeze-dried husk that's going to require a lot of regeneration, though her consciousness was protected.

The Unique Solution: A Dozen Worlds Romance

by Val Roberts on 2018-07-27

With no home, no family, and her grand plot an utter failure, Talyn Penthes emigrates to Garnford Major and goes back to her roots, remaking all those Zonan craft projects she was always pulled away from.

Sharif Tanaka Six-Alpha is worried. One of five clones of the chief exec of the Hauptmann cartel, which essentially runs the Garnford system, the highest-tech of the Dozen Worlds, he knows there’s a problem in the R&D department, as there doesn’t seem to be any innovation happening anymore.

Once back home, he learns that the cloned DNA is failing, and Tanaka generation five is fading fast so he’s running out of time to fix things. And on top of that, a series of suspicious accidents might mean one of Six-Alpha’s cloned brothers is trying to kill him—he’s not sure of it, but Talyn is (and she has experience).

It will take both working together to break the Garnford system out of its self-imposed deep freeze – if Talyn can keep Six-Alpha alive until the board meeting so she can put her Unique Solution into effect and save both Hauptmann and the man she loves.


Blade's Edge: A Dozen Worlds Romance Novel (The Dozen Worlds Book 1)

by Val Roberts on 2018-07-06

Sometimes getting in bed with the enemy gives you the edge you need...

For Zonan Silvergard Commander Taryn Penthes, an assignment to escort a group of Bariani diplomats seems routine-until the party is ambushed. And when she realizes the attacker she just killed is the Zonan Crown Prince's lover, political winds shift.

Now she's in a race to get the surviving diplomat to safety-while using whatever means necessary to find out what he knows.
Blade Von Stassos isn't all that surprised at the assassination attempt a mere fifteen minutes after he arrives in the Zonan capital. What does surprise him is the ferocious, deadly skill with which Taryn protects him. With no choice but to follow her lead, he tries to ignore the instincts telling him he's finally found a worthy consort in her. Which comes as a surprise, since he's not long on trust when it comes to women or Zonans.

Forced into an uneasy alliance, Blade and Taryn first seduce each other for information, unleashing sizzling attraction that can't be denied, even if they're each other's worst enemy. As the balance of power shifts around them, the only way to stay alive is to find out who wants them dead. And why...
