And it appears the trouble has extended (or is centered on?) the area around Stephanie Hawthorn’s hometown of Browns Point.
“There’s something out there.”
Those words from her brother, a detective for Tacoma’s police department, course through Stephanie head as she’s held in the iron grip of a stranger. The karaoke music of the SandBar, just on the other side of the restroom door, hides her calls for help. Now she awaits her fate as she glares into her assailant’s eyes—eyes that suddenly change in a frightening way…
This is no ordinary stranger.
This man who now holds her will forever change Stephanie’s life and introduce her to a world she had no idea existed. A world where people are not always what they appear to be. A world she is shocked to discover her own father and brother belong to. A world that she herself will become a key part of.
Stephanie and her newly found lover work together to track down the horrific creature that is killing innocent people in the area. But when tragedy takes a personal turn, she vows to stop at nothing to get vengeance.
But from the moment they meet, their connection is undeniable—and their passionate romance blurs the lines between captor and prisoner, between enemy forces and the love of a lifetime.
When you’re struggling to build a relationship among vengeful former friends and sinister foes, however, love can be a dangerous game. So when one of Tanner’s missions suddenly goes awry, Katrina finds herself embarking on a death-defying adventure to locate her lost love—but could soon become trapped in a perilous situation of her own.
Elite: One presents a roller coaster ride of romance and adventure as two star-crossed lovers find each other in a fast-paced science fiction world. Working together to combat the constant chaos of the universe around them, Tanner and Katrina must strike out against the forces desperate to hold them back—with surprises along the way that could change everything they thought they knew.
But that doesn’t last long.
Hours after David lands in his hometown, chaos finds both him and everyone around him. Something is going on in Roswell. Strange occurrences are happening all over town that no one can explain. Or is it that no one wants to explain? Something or someone has returned to wreak havoc on Roswell’s innocent residents.
And David knows what it is.
He’s seen it.
Back in 1987, during his sophomore year at RHS, it—whatever it was—sent him and his friends on a wild goose chase that ended in tragedy—the loss of one of his best friends.
So, what now?
Join David and his lifelong friends, the Jaguar Gang, on their adventure that spans two decades, beginning in 1987. It’s a chase to find something that isn’t supposed to exist. Something that will most certainly change all their lives if they do find it. Something that has lived in Roswell for a very long time—just waiting for David to return.
After nearly five years of running from the Luterae, she and her father have returned to the Puget Sound. And it’s not just the two of them that look forward to settling down for at least a few days rest. Stephanie’s now four-year-old daughter, Skylar, is eager to find out while life is like when you’re not hiding in a cargo container on a huge ship.
But less than twenty-four hours into their stay at beautiful Browns Point, Washington, and mayhem once again returns.
Stephanie’s father is called away on a mysterious mission to find out who is murdering hundreds of Tutellas – the same type of creature that he is.
And Stephanie herself has her own mission – To find Remington Octavius Augustus. Her former blood-sucking lover - and Skylar’s father. A father that Skylar has never met.
This time around, Stephanie must first fight to find her past love, and then fight to save her own daughter from a terrible, terrible fate. A fate that very well may be unavoidable. Join Stephanie and Skylar on a fast-paced story that combines action, romance, mysteries and monsters in one plot-twisting adventure.
Now it’s time to hear from the great man himself.
Over the course of an interview with a Terran writer named Giovanni, Tanner Ronin recounts the many good—and sometimes not so good—events that formed him into the most powerful warrior his people have ever seen. His years in military training, the great battles, his first love, and the never-ending challenges with his father are all laid bare in his story. Oh, and there was this mysterious fellow Elite named Canter along the way, wreaking havoc and changing Tanner’s life—and not always for the better.

Her world is shaken up when she unwittingly discovers a set of letters - love letters.
This discovery, along with the arrival of a handsome, but troubled American soldier, flips Gemma's world upside down and she finds herself with some very un-nunlike feelings. After the American disappears—and Gemma discovers a shocking betrayal by the convent’s mother—she throws everything she knows aside to go find what may end up being the love of her life.
She is now a fully recognized Elite Marine in the Gama military and, alongside husband Tanner Ronin, one of the most powerful individuals in all the Terran and Gama worlds.
