LUNAR HEAT
eBook
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Tentative Pub. Date: November 2013 (11-04-13)

LUNAR HEAT is a rewrite of a book titled ISLAND HEAT. As an author I wasn’t satisfied with the original. At first I thought I’d just update the story but then realized I wanted to do much more. So it’s got a new title and copyright. And this SF/romance is now set way in the future and takes place on Earth, the Moon, Mars and Io. Preorders on Amazon can be done on Nov 1 and the expected release date is set for Nov. 15th 2013.

SYNOPSIS:
A future that’s out of this world.
A seduction that’s out of control.

Wealthy, reclusive celebrity, Shara Weston, hides from her countless fans on a private asteroid in Earth’s orbit, but that doesn’t stop captivating alien Cade Archer from crash-landing into her life.

Cade’s on a mission to free his people from cruel enslavement by opening a portal from his planet to Earth, but a powerful enemy has followed him, hell-bent on stopping Cade at any cost. While Cade’s plan sounds noble, Shara can’t help but worry that an untested passage between his planet and hers could lead to the destruction of everything she’s ever known or loved.

Alone amid the stars, the attraction between them explodes. Shara must follow Cade down a sensual path of sweet domination . . . a path that frightens her . . . a path that pleases her . . . a path that could risk the lives of every man, woman, and child on two worlds.

Will she surrender to Cade’s intentions or will his quest for freedom destroy them both?


THE QUEST
Rystani Warrior 4
eBook
ISBN-13: 978-1611943436
Publisher: Belle Bridge Books
Pub. Date: August 2013 (08-15-13)



In THE CHALLENGE, he was a baby born in hyperspace.
In THE DARE, he was a four-year old Oracle.
In THE ULTIMATUM, he was a sex slave.

Now Kirek’s a full-grown Rystani warrior. During his previous mission, Kirek learned the Zin, the galaxy’s most ancient enemy, are about to decimate the Federation with weapons of planetary destruction. To stop them, he must sneak into enemy territory—without any aid from his wealthy and influential family.

Kirek once possessed the most powerful psi in the galaxy. But now he’s damaged. And alone. But not for long. Kirek has a plan.

When Captain Angel Taylor finds the sexy psi-warrior stowed away on her space salvage—and he admits he needs her help—she’s cautious. Angel’s a self-made captain and barely scraping by with her antiquated ship. But after Kirek promises her sole access to the galaxy’s richest salvage haul, she’s drawn into his reckless mission.

It doesn’t hurt that she finds Kirek devastatingly attractive. A perfect candidate for a fling. Too bad he keeps insisting that fate has brought them together, that they are destined to be life-mates, and that her psi is as all-powerful as his own.

However sexy Angel finds the Rystani warrior, she isn’t about to give up her skepticism, her independence, or her heart. So while they make an unlikely team, their battle of wills quickly escalates into a game of seduction.

But once they’re deep in enemy territory, Kirek risks everything—to save the Federation and to win Angel’s everlasting love.

“With absorbing descriptions, tense dialogue and great, in-depth characters, Ms. Kearney has another successful story on her hands. The Quest shouldn’t be missed!”

Other stories in this series: The Challenge, The Dare, The Ultimatum.

THE ULTIMATUM
Rystani Warrior 3
eBook
ISBN-13: 978-1611943429
Publisher: Belle Bridge Books
Pub. Date: August 2013 (07-31-13)



His captive has issued a most unusual ultimatum. . .
He must make love to her . . .
Little does he know that giving her what she needs may bind him to her forever . . .

Rystani star pilot Xander is willing to use unusual methods, no matter how unorthodox, to save the galaxy from a deadly virus. He’s already resorted to kidnapping bio-geneticist Alara Calladar in the hopes that her psi-talent of identifying DNA will help find a cure to save both their worlds.

But now his sworn enemy has revealed that her biology requires her to periodically regenerate her cells by making love or she’ll die. Really die.

Xander is stunned, yet fascinated, by her admission and wonders what other secrets she’s keeping. While he has little choice but to agree to trade his life-saving love making for her psi powers, he’s determined to keep an emotional distance. No way is he falling for her, a woman from a race who invaded and occupies his home world.

Soon their desperate bargain becomes a turbulent but all-consuming passion. Her body isn’t just rejuvenating each time they make love, it’s adapting to his on a genetic level. Before long she will be unable to make love to any man but Xander.

Xander resists becoming her conquest, but not even the dangerous mission can distract him from Alara’s appeal. She’s just the kind of woman he admires. Intelligent, resourceful, and passionate. If only he trusted her. If only she wasn’t the enemy. If only his heart didn’t have a mind of its own.

When together they must merge their talents to fight the most powerful forces in the galaxy, will trust win out, or will they lose each other forever?

The much-awaited sequel to The Challenge and The Dare.

Rystani Warrior 2
eBook
ISBN-13: 978-1611943160
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Pub. Date: July 2013 (06-28-13)



All Dora wants is to be the woman he loves . . .
All Zical wants is to complete his mission . . .
All the enemy wants is total annihilation . . .

Blocked by the limitations of her computer hardware, Dora has used only her smarts, her humor, and her sinfully sexy voice to intrigue Rystani warrior-pilot Zical. In order to experience human sexuality—and consummate her love for him—she builds the perfect female body to inhabit. Being human is more difficult and more wonderful than Dora expected. She didn’t expect the sensation of touch to alter her emotions. Nor did she expect chocolate to taste so good. Or love to be so complicated.

But for a Rystani star pilot, accepting Dora as a crew woman, never mind a lover, is downright confusing. Even if Zical considered Dora fully human—which he doesn’t—his tragic past has made him swear off falling in love. But as Dora’s increasingly human allure becomes hard to resist, a threat to the solar system sends them on a dangerous mission to the very edge of the galaxy.

As Dora explores the full extent of what it means to love, can Zical’s sense of honor and his proud adherence to Rystani customs ever let him give his heart to a woman who created herself only for him? And as their enemies turn deadly, Dora and Zical must overcome their pasts . . . if they hope to fight for all of their futures.

In the darkest hours of the Dominion War, as the Federation's downfall seemed ever more certain, Jem'Hadar and Cardassian forces conquered Betazed, the homeworld of Deanna Troi. Their victory sent shock waves through the Alpha Quadrant, and put the Dominion within striking distance of Vulcan, Andor, Tellar—and possibly Earth itself.

To secure their position in the very heart of the Federation, the Cardassians begin constructing space station Sentok Nor in orbit of Betazed. The station is to serve as both the seat of the Dominion occupation and the site of horrific experiments by Cardassia's foremost exobiologist, the infamous Dr. Crell Moset.

With Starfleet's forces spread too thinly in the ongoing struggle to retake Betazed outright, the U.S.S. Enterprise, along with some old and new friends, is deployed to carry out a dangerous and desperate plan. But no matter what the outcome, the consequences could alter Betazed irrevocably, forcing Deanna Troi to choose between her world's survival and its very soul.
