To Buy a Wife (Book 1) (FREE)
In a harsh land where corruption rules and women are few, cold realist Hudson Land must purchase a wife to save his farm. Instead of an auction, he witnesses the start of an execution. With his first look at a beautiful woman in years, Hudson knows he has to have her—no matter the cost. Lake, a chemist and a rebel fighter, is resigned to her death, but when some back-hill farmer rescues her from the chopping block she has no intention of simply becoming his wife. She’s pledged her life to the Rebellion and being bought for some stranger’s bed doesn’t change a thing, even if his soft caresses are damn distracting. As lies and secrets build between them, are the quiet moments they’ve shared enough to stand against two warring factions in a world where only the strong survive?
To Keep a Wife (Book 2)
In the shards of civilization ruined by a global war, Lake has gotten the life she never dared dreamed of—a safe haven, and the love of a good man, her husband, Hudson Black Creek. But Lake’s hard-won happiness doesn’t last long when powerful Elders lay siege on Black Creek Manor in retaliation for a past defiance. As Lake watches everything she loves go up in flames, she sacrifices herself for the chance to keep Hudson and her brother alive. Syon, a diabolic Elder with his own agenda, will push Lake to her breaking point, forcing her to compromise—heart and soul— in order to survive.
Hudson wakes from a head wound to find that his whole world is reduced to ashes. With no memory of why he’s sacrificed everything for a woman whose name is tattooed on his chest, Hudson is determined to make his heart match the emptiness of his mind, and wipe out everything except the hatred for those who are to blame—the Elders and the wife he sought to protect.
As evil and fear spread across a war-torn land, Lake and Hudson are tested like never before, and both will have to forgive betrayals and risk greater heartbreak if they want a chance at saving their lives… and their love.
Dark Future (Book 3)
A woman caught between two futures…
Awakened in the middle of the night by a future version of herself, Kris Davenport is given a mission: go travel in time to save the world–and his life. Of course, her future self doesn’t tell her who he is just sends her into the darkness and straight into an alien invasion.
…must choose between the man who has her heart…
He turns out to be ConRad Smith, the callous, untrusting military commander of Earth’s army and the world’s last defense. There’s only one way for Smith to know for sure if this strange woman is an alien spy–slice her throat. Except, he didn’t anticipate the desire he would feel as he interrogates the hot-tempered, warm-blooded woman.
…or the fate that saves the world.
As Kris and ConRad struggle to trust each other in a world on the brink of destruction, they each will have to face the ultimate choice of whether to fight or die… survive or forgive.
“The future, it’s not like that. It’s not … better,” she said, focusing back on the road.
“What do you mean?” Her tone of impending doom was starting to wear on me.
“Do you remember our grandfather and how we would go and visit him during the summer?”
I nodded. I’d given up on rationalizing how she knew intimate details about my life. Crazy was a river you just floated along on.
The summers with my grandfather were some of my favorite memories. The days filled with sweet tea, fly fishing, and no one worrying when you stayed out past dark.
“Do you remember how he would talk to us about the end of the world? How we were living in the last days?”
I nodded again, not really understanding where this was leading. Grandpa had been a pastor at the local church. He hadn’t taught brimstone and hellfire, but he was concerned about “Judgment Day,” as he called it.
“Well, it happened, Kris. Armageddon is for real. And the future is not better.”
A shudder crawled along my skin. Whatever this was— a delusion, a psychotic episode, a carb-induced nightmare— she believed it. In her mind the end of the world was the absolute truth.
We turned into a deserted parking lot that led to the hiking paths up into the mountain preserve. The trail head was marked with a sign asking dog owners to pick up after their pets, along with a supply of “doggie bags” for the forgetful owner. A copper water fountain and empty horse trough filled in the rest. She parked the car and turned off the ignition, then focused her attention on me.
“I don’t want to tell you too much. I don’t want to bias your decisions. You just need to have more … integrity, more trust.”
She ran both hands through her hair and slicked back the disheveled mess. “Ah, I wish I knew, but I don’t. This time it has to work.”
“Tell me too much? You haven’t told me jack. What has to work this time?” Wisps of apprehension swirled in my belly. This woman looked too familiar and knew too much for me to keep dismissing her. “Is that what I’m supposed to do? Stop Armageddon from happening?”
“No.” She shook her head. “That’s already happened. You’ll be too late for that.”
