Krantor’s Mate

One day, on a planet far from Earth, I meet my fated mate. The only problem is, he’s in love with someone else.

Martha has enrolled on a six-month exchange program to the planet Ven, whose people have recently made first contact with Earth. Newly single and broke, Martha looks forward to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to find out more about the Venorians, an intriguing humanoid race of massive bronze-skinned people.

As the son and heir of the Kran, planet Ven’s ruler, Krantor has four somars—men who are his lifelong bodyguards and companions. He loves them all dearly, but one of them, Prilor, he loves best of all. Krantor knows he’s destined to meet his fated mate one day, but it’s Prilor he wants to spend his days and nights with. And he certainly hadn’t banked on his fated mate being a human!

Will Martha give up her life on Earth for a fated mate who already loves another? And what of the feelings she has developed for Shanbri, another of Krantor’s somars?

Author’s note: this is a standalone sci-fi romance with steam and spice aplenty, featuring FM, MM, and MFM relationships, and a guaranteed HEA for all.

What people are saying about Krantor’s Mate:

What a phenomenal read. The worlds, cultures, and species created were diverse and detailed. The characters were rich, vivid, and beautifully flawed. I went on such an emotional ride with this book. It is so amazing to watch this talented author weave such a magical journey with such a balance of realism and fantasy. I can see myself turning back to this book time and time again.Goodreads reviewer

Laijar’s Temptation

I am on a mission to find out why the airships on Earth have stopped flying. My race, the Venorians, have been keeping an eye on this planet for centuries, but have yet to make contact with humans. Unfortunately, my descent to Earth does not go as planned.

Life during the Covid pandemic sucks. I’m stuck doing home learning alone in my family’s ranch house in Colorado. My boring existence comes to an end, though, when a gorgeous bronzed skinned alien crash lands on our property.

The attraction is immediate between Laijar and Daisy when they first meet, but Laijar knows he cannot act on his desires. While he has had his fair share of lovers growing up in the sex positive Venorian society,  Daisy is young and inexperienced. It would be wrong to take advantage of her crush on him. Laijar is determined at all costs to resist the temptation, but Daisy has other plans.

Author’s note: this novella is a prequel to Krantor’s Mate. This steamy sci-fi romance can also be read as a standalone. While this is an FM romance, there are explicit scenes with MM action. However, there is no cheating and a guaranteed HEA for the two main protagonists.
