Erotic Sci-Fi/Dystopian Romance – FF & MF
Caught in a tangle of lies, Calla Jacobs must sort through the truth to discover where she truly belongs. A biologist for Planet Core, she finds herself ensnared in a web of deceit. Sent to Airondelle, she must work with a team to prepare the newly discovered planet for colonists from Earth. But the mission does not go as she expected. Her former lover, Erik Edwards, shuns her, sending Calla into the arms of Melina Holloway, their commander, for the attention she craves and more. A confrontation among the trio leaves her with a broken heart, and fleeing from the two people she trusted most.
Attempting to break free from the lies that bind her, she discovers Planet Core has deceived everyone. And when she returns to Earth, Calla learns just how far Planet Core’s control reaches.
Melina stood up. “Well, I guess we’re done for tonight.”
Instead of packing up the Jeeps and heading back to camp, they lingered, staring at each other in the moonlight. Calla didn’t want to move. She fixated on her commander’s mouth. What would it feel like?
Before she realized what was happening, Melina pressed her lips to Calla’s. Holloway’s hand met the small of her back, drawing her in closer. Calla sensed the woman’s hunger, but pulled away, surprised by her commander’s actions and still ashamed of her body’s rush of desire.
“Holloway, this isn’t allowed. You of all people should know that.”
Melina strolled around behind her, keeping her hands on Calla’s shoulders, and kneaded the knots across her back. “No one needs to know. It’s just the two of us out here.”
Calla moaned as her commander’s thumbs dug deep, releasing her stress from the mission and Erik’s attitude. The massage was the precise touch she needed. “That feels so good.”
Melina swept Calla’s hair from her shoulders and kissed her neck, turning the massage into something sensual. “I have much more planned for you.”
“Holloway, I’ve never ….”
“Been with a woman?” Melina spun her around. Tilting her head, she gazed into her eyes, brushing a thumb across her lips. “There’s a first time for everything.”

The Underground #2

Erotic Lesbian Sci-Fi/Dystopian Romance
Determined to find and bring back her girlfriend, Brook enlists in the next mission to the foreign planet, Airondelle. But the deception at Planet Core continues, and Brook doesn't realize the depth of her father's involvement until he orders her terminated. Struggling to stay alive, she quickly learns nothing is as she believed.
Will she ever find Melina? Or will Brook be stuck light years from home, alone, and with a fierce predator hunting her down?
“Let’s go, Malock.” Jager raised his eyebrows. “Or did you change your mind?”
She stood and released a deep breath. Even with her trepidation, she refused to back out now. Melina waited for her. “No, I’m looking forward to seeing Airondelle for myself.”
Brook spun away and rushed to catch up with her comrades. If she revealed her plans, she’d be stopped before she could find her lover. She would have to hide Melina right under their noses to bring her home. She pushed her shoulders back. I can do this. I have to.
The all-terrain vehicles sat loaded with equipment for the mission in front of the swirling mass of the portal. Her father certainly wasn’t wasting any time getting a team back to Airondelle. Crewmembers already filled the first vehicle, so she hopped into the back of the second.
Jager passed around everyone’s mission directives then shoved in on her left. Thank goodness he was the last to load. With his bulk, he occupied both of the remaining seats.
Before she had time to read her personal orders, they proceeded into the portal. She passed through the spinning matter, her body pulled and stretched in every direction. Unknown forces pushed on her chest, making it difficult to breathe. She gripped the seat, hoping she wouldn’t get pulled out. But the awkwardness didn’t last long. The transporter room light years away, clean, fresh air poured into her lungs. The alien vegetation of the foreign planet lined the rough dirt road they traveled. She yearned to explore the flora and fauna on a more intimate level. And she would, after setting up camp.
She opened the folder with her mission directive inside. Instead of the stack of papers detailing what Planet Core expected of her, she found a single sheet.
Her father’s handwriting scrawled across the page. You can never know the truth.
Hard, cold steel pressed against her temple. A gun. Her breath caught. What the hell is going on? She grabbed her knapsack and launched out of the vehicle.

The Underground #3

Erotic Gay Sci-Fi/Dystopian Romance
The rebellion is stirring…
Will Garrison leads the fight against the control of the corporation—he wants his people to have their rights to live and love back. Reunited with his lover, former Planet Core medic Tim Harris, the men disagree on how to take down the corporation.
And the desire for freedom…
Tim’s plan requires that he provide a distraction while Will leads The Underground’s forces in a lightning raid, but who can Will trust when he’s already been betrayed once?
May cost these men everything…
Timing is everything, because if either fails The Underground may be crushed under the weight of Planet Core once and for all.
“Let’s do this.” Gun aimed to shoot, Will took a deep breath and stepped inside the portal. The mass pulled his skin in every direction. His stomach churned. And then the sensations ended.
He’d made it. Resting his hand on the closest structure, he inhaled sharply, trying to gain his bearings.
The rest of the team gathered beside him, Brook and Melina the only two not affected by the trip.
“Shit.” He needed to focus, regain control. He blinked hard then glanced around the transporter room. Empty. No one had come to meet them.
“Something’s wrong,” Melina whispered, ready to fire her own weapon. “There is always at least one guard in here.”
“I guess we got lucky.” Dale sauntered to the center of the space, raised his arms and spun in a circle. “We are all alone in here. Time to find the fucker and take him down.”
A sudden hiss silenced him. Red light burned his clothing and left a clean, cauterized hole through his chest. His eyes rolled back in his head, and he fell to the ground.
Will rushed in front of the others, shoving them behind the portal.
So much for being alone. How many waited to take them down? He peeked around the structure, weapon at the ready. No one. The guards had to be hiding, waiting for him and his crew to come out.
And come out they would, fighting all the way.
