A THIRDS Novella

THIRDS agent Dexter J. Daley can’t wait to marry his fiancé, Team Leader Sloane Brodie, but first he’s looking forward to celebrating his bachelor party—which he intends to be a shenanigans-free evening of getting his groove on with family and friends.

Of course events don’t work out as planned, but for Dex that’s nothing new. One thing is for sure, dodging drug dealers and hired thugs amid booze, dancing—and even a bear costume—will guarantee it’s a night Dex will never forget. Now he just needs to survive all the fun.

Enjoy this bonus story from the THIRDS universe. These events occur between Darkest Hour Before Dawn and Tried & True in the series timeline. While reading this story would enhance your experience of the THIRDS series, it is not essential to read before Tried & True

Suite de Grandeur et décadence

THIRDS, tome 5

Ash Keeler, l’agent Défense le plus féroce du THIRDS au sein de l’Unité Destructive Delta, est grossier et a mauvais caractère, mais son approche musclée est toujours synonyme de résultats, comme le démontre sa récente infiltration au sein de la Coalition. Grâce à ses compétences et avec l’aide de son équipe, il met fin aux agissements du groupe extrémiste meurtrier, non sans prendre une balle pour sauver son coéquipier Cael Maddock. En conséquence de son geste, les secrets d’Ash refont surface et il ne peut ignorer plus longtemps ce qu’il a dans le cœur.

Cael Maddock n’est pas étranger aux peines de cœur. En tant qu’Agent Recon pour Destructive Delta, il a manœuvré avec succès dans la jungle urbaine qu’est la ville de New York, glanant ses propres cicatrices en cours de route. Pourtant, rien de ce qu’il a déjà affronté ne s’est révélé un plus grand défi que le cœur d’Ash Keeler, son coéquipier soi-disant hétéro. Être amoureux n’est pas le seul danger qu’Ash et lui affrontent alors que des blessures se rouvrent et que de nouveaux secrets émergent, les forçant à s’interroger sur de vieilles loyautés.

A Harmony Ink Press Title

Cristina Mera Richards’s father is the latest victim of reaper Edgar Verner. Verner and the harvesters have been preying on the hovertown of New Bayou for too long, and someone has to put an end to their carnage. Cristina Mera decides she is that someone, but because Verner is an immortal alkemist, she will have to get creative when it comes to destroying him. And the stakes only get higher when Verner decides he wants Cristina Mera—and her unique powers—as his apprentice and under his control.

As a changeling, Cristina Mera can see and hear the spirits of the dead. It’s an ability she uses to free souls from suffering when their bodies become desiccated by the withering sickness—and one Verner intends to exploit.

A way out for Cristina Mera appears in the form of Wanderer Alkemist Nikola Skazat—a woman with a long past and many secrets—whose beauty and charm entice Cristina Mera as much as the opportunity for her help against Verner. As Nikola’s apprentice, Cristina Mera might find a way to save her hovertown. But she could lose her heart along the way—or even her life.

Sam, a geeky college freshman, has bigger problems than lusting after Marcus, sexy jock, college junior, and his big brother’s best friend. Chasing after a beanie caught in the winter wind turns into a tumble down the rabbit hole for them both—science fiction style.

Sam and Marcus find themselves trapped on a tropical island in the middle of a strange ocean on an alien moon. The sole structure is a ruined temple devoted to the art of love. Flustered, confused, and unable to return home, they need to figure out a means of escape from a hostile jungle teeming with dangerous life-forms.

In this tale where opposites attract and secret crushes are revealed, two very dissimilar young men discover they actually have a lot in common after all, but it will take their differences as much as their points of connection to survive on an island in the stars.

Le monde s’achève non pas dans une explosion, mais dans un déluge. Des tornades ravagent le cœur de Londres, une chaleur étouffante fait fondre le bitume à New York et des couches de permafrost de plus en plus épaisses paralysent la Russie. Au début, les hommes se mobilisent, organisent des co-voiturages et évacuent les populations, mais le temps ne fait qu’empirer.

À Durham, Danny Fennick, un professeur affable, s’est calfeutré chez lui en attendant que la tempête passe. Élevé dans les Highlands d’Écosse, il a connu des hivers plus rigoureux. Et surtout, il possède un avantage : c’est un loup-garou. Ou, plus exactement, un chien-garou. Moins impressionnant, mais tout aussi pratique.

Néanmoins, les loups-garous n’y voient pas qu’un simple hiver et franchissent le Mur du Nord pour marquer leur nouveau territoire. Parmi eux, son ex, Jack, fils du Numitor de la meute et prince héritier, et son frère, qui rêve de fratricide.

Un hiver de loup n’est pas blanc. Il est rouge comme le sang.

Quello che doveva essere un progetto volto a migliorare la vita umana si rivela una ricerca che potrebbe portare alla distruzione di massa. La terrificante scoperta obbliga Kelly a scegliere tra guardare dall’altra parte per mantenere il suo incarico, come ha sempre fatto, o rischiare la carriera e forse persino la vita per fare la cosa giusta e salvare l’uomo che ha conquistato il suo cuore.

Will love set them free—or seal their fate?

In the sixty-seventh century, Trev, a master thief and computer hacker, and Khim, a vat-grown human android, reluctantly share a cell in a floating space prison called Steering Star. Trev is there as part of an arrangement that might finally free him from his father’s control. Khim, formerly a combat android, snaps when he is sold into the pleasure trade and murders one of the men who sexually assaults him. At first they are at odds, but despite secrets and their dark pasts, they form a pact—first to survive the prison, and then to escape it.

But independence remains elusive, and falling in love comes with its own challenges. Trev’s father, Dante, a powerful underworld figure with sweeping influence throughout the galaxy, maintains control over their lives that seems stronger than any prison security system, and he seeks to keep them apart. Trev and Khim must plan another, more complex escape, and this time make sure they are well beyond the law as well as Dante’s reach.

Avec Ash en arrêt, récupérant toujours de ses propres blessures, Sloane à l’hôpital, et Destructive Delta dans la ligne de mire de la Coalition, le Lieutenant Sparks ne veut prendre aucun risque. L’affaire est retirée des mains de l’équipe de Dex, l’enquête étant confiée au chef d’équipe Sebastian Hobbs.

Le désir de vengeance ne lui est que trop familier, mais certaines choses sont plus importantes, comme l’homme qui a promis de se tenir à ses côtés.

A Planet Called Wish | Book Three

A Planet Called Wish: Book Three

Sometimes there’s a difference between duty and doing what’s right. And sometimes doing what’s right comes with a high price.

Every aspasian at Asiq adores the handsome peacekeeper Resan—all except for Arin. While the other workers vie for Resan’s attention, Arin avoids him at all costs, which rouses Resan’s suspicion. When he discovers Arin is a runaway slave, Resan is bound by law to return him to his master. It is only later that Resan realizes what he’s done. Arin’s owner bought him at twelve, married him, and not only violated Arin himself, but loaned him out to his friends. Resan has returned him to a life of rape and abuse, and now he must make a decision: free Arin and abandon the oaths he swore as a peacekeeper, or leave him to languish and abandon his own conscience and heart.

The Sun Dragon: Book Three

The people of Earth thought they’d found refuge from their robot adversaries on the planet Draman, but they’re about to learn they were mistaken.

On the day of the Dramanian Naming Ceremony, the half-human, half-dragon children choose between colored robes representing the two genders recognized by their society. But for some children, the choice isn’t so simple.

Sara Lee, a Dramanian girl, faces a decision: remain as best friend and maid to Princess Nimue, or aid a child who refuses to select a robe. Battling the oppressive gender roles of her world means sacrificing her friendship with Nimue, but Sara Lee takes up the cause. When they’re assaulted by a robot spaceship, Nimue and Sara Lee join forces to seek the aid of the legendary wizard, Merlin. But even Merlin cannot keep them safe, so he sends both women back in time, where they must find Allanah, defeat the creator of the robot army, and find a way to defy the societal expectations determined to keep them from being together in the way they both desire.

Two very different civilizations—one bathed in bright sunlight and the other veiled in shadow.

Bad decisions, declining resources, and a king on the brink of madness force Prince Varo Kutchif, third son of the royal family and a starship captain, to attempt the impossible: barter for Black Phospolrock, an energy source the mysterious Helkan Kingdom has in abundance. Varo opens a line of communication with Adlar, an intriguing Helkan who seems to reciprocate Varo’s interest. He hopes so, because if negotiations collapse, Varo has orders to attack.

The Helkans preside over a planet shrouded in perpetual darkness. Several species have tried to exploit its natural resources through trade with them, but all have failed. Adlar Mondur is the older brother to the Helkan ruler. An assassin of the highest order, he’ll do anything to protect his king and his people—including tracking down the Yesri prince who crash-lands on their planet, leaving an ugly scar across its untouched beauty.

Thus begins a journey where two men from disparate civilizations grow from enemies to lovers.
