Medical Officer, Dr. Anya Rambo knew in her gut something was amiss the day an unidentifiable object collided with Staging Platform 13. Though it seemed to pose no immediate threat, Anya suspected that the coffin-like object was far more dangerous than it appeared. Long missions away from home can take its toll on anyone, but when the female crewmembers all started experiencing the same sensual dream, Anya decided to investigate. Was the alien object the cause of this strange phenomenon?
Legion was the last of his kind. He had travelled eons alone without contact with other life forms. His energy had been almost depleted. Clinging to the smallest spark of life, Legion was near insanity from surviving for so long amid the dark nothingness of space and time. Deprived of sensation and contact with other beings, Legion barely recognized the strange emotion that gripped him the moment he saw Anya -- Desire. She was the one. His destined mate. And he would have her...if only he could eliminate the annoying presence of another male, Zavier.
Perhaps Legion wasn't the last of this kind after all.
LEGION was expanded from an original short novella, and unfortunately it shows. Described as a story that features 2 heroes, Hero #2 (Zavier) shows up much too late in the story. Zavier does little to earn his "hero" status and this reader struggled to understand his appeal to anyone, including Anya. Zavier provides much needed conflict in the story, but really does nothing more than offer a slight contrast to Legion's character (Hero #1) and ramp up the sexual play of the story. Dropped subplots and the omission of a clear conclusion add frustration to an otherwise intriguing tale.Read more ›

Dr. Anya Rambo was on assignment on Staging Platform 13 when a large mysterious object started on a collision course towards the station. The crew was celebrating the success of their mission and was less than prepared to deal with this impeding disaster. Before she could scream "danger, danger", Anya is dealing face-to-face with an alien life form called Legion. On top of everything else, Legion is gorgeous with amazing powers, which gives her reason enough to resist him. A series of chaotic events forces her to react quicker than she would like and before she can recover from one disaster, she's flying headfirst into more and more insanity with her emotions in overdrive.
As a being of god-like perfection and power, Legion finds it difficult to understand human beings despite the similarities. He has lost his entire world and people. Anya is the answer to his loneliness, the perfect woman to call his mate. But just as the woman he desires is beginning to understand him better and open her heart to him, Zavier makes an appearance, only to complicate matters more. Who is Zavier? Zavier is someone who could be categorized, at least to Legion, as the worst person to arrive on the scene and the biggest threat to his newfound happiness.
I thought I knew what was going on in the first chapter of Legion. Wrong. This novel had enough plots twists to keep a seasoned reader like myself on the edge until the very end. The character development for Anya, Legion and Zavier is superb. Anya is intelligent and capable, facing off toe-to-toe with Legion and Zavier. Legion and Zavier are alpha males and certainly the least of their worries is yielding their all to Anya.Read more ›
