I hated the military…and now I’m an alien’s pet!
I hated the Terran military. I didn’t volunteer, either. Like so many others, I was drafted as cannon fodder in the senseless Terran war against the Algonquans. Not like I had much of a future ahead of me, though, without a rich family to pave my way or even pay for me to have a wife.
Now, my entire ship’s been captured. If what we’ve been told about the alien race is true, I’ll never be seen again. I hope they don’t eat me.
Turns out the truth is far different than we were led to believe. The Algonquans aren’t vicious, insectoid monsters, either.
We’re now their pampered pets…and they’re using us to help replenish their population to win the war.
You know, maybe this isn’t the worst life after all.
This standalone MMMM, sci-fi romance features humans as aliens' pets (and more), m-preg, a touch of power exchange, and…interesting alien tech. This book was previously published under my Tymber Dalton pen name. It has been revised and expanded for re-release.
This wasn't in the contract.
Simon Quigley had no idea what to expect when he agreed to do this for the money, but the eight-foot-tall pink alien isn't what he was expecting. For starters, Simon's straight.
And Mohrn isn't a girl.
The contract? It's unbreakable.
It's going to be a long five years...

I've lived a long time. Some might say too long. I honestly don't know what drew me to Lucius' club in Tucson, of all hellish destinations, but dark and self-destructive thoughts have increasingly beckoned to me, as of late.
Then I meet her.
She challenges me from the very start and awakens something I'd thought long dead and cold inside my soul. Even her name should burn my lips, yet I can't let her go.
But when pieces of the past catch up with us, will I be able to keep her safe?
I've spent most of my life running, but that bastard had my number from almost the second our eyes meet. He's the first of his kind to break through my defenses when I thought I was safe here, of all places.
He's done worse than steal my heart--he's given me hope.
Now what the hell do I do?
Especially when it looks like my past is catching up with us.
This time, I might have run out of options.
(Note: Lesli Richardson also writes as USA Today Bestselling author Tymber Dalton.)
MEET THE CHIEF: Behind every good man is a real bastard.
Behind every good man is a good woman. That's what they say.
They're wrong. Even my wife would agree.
The truth is, behind every good man is a real bastard—that would be me.
I knew from the day I met Owen that the only way I'd ever get him was to make sure I took whatever it was he loved and wanted most and hold it so close to me that he couldn't help but come with it.
And now…now there are people who want to tear the three of us apart.
I'll die before I let that happen.
I am Carter Wilson, chief of staff to the governor of the great state of Florida.
And, according to him and my wife, a bastard extraordinaire.
Book 3 of the Governor Trilogy. This MMF contemporary political romance features friends to lovers, GFY, a secret workplace romance with high political stakes, power exchange, wounded heroes, a cinnamon roll hero, an Alpha hero who will kill to protect his loved ones, and a guaranteed HEA.
MEET THE LIEUTENANT: She never comes in second.
I never come in second—that's just how my daddy raised me.
Except now, I find myself willingly choosing exactly that—being second. Publicly, I might seem to serve at the governor's pleasure, but that's nothing close to the truth.
He serves me at mine. Especially the pleasure part.
We both serve my husband, Carter. Or, as Owen dubbed him long ago, the bastard extraordinaire.
I never knew what I was really getting into when I met Owen and Carter. Maybe it's better I didn't. Maybe I would've run away if I had.
Boy, how I love him. Both of them. Somehow, they make being second okay. And in eight years?
It'll be my turn.
I am Susa Evans, lieutenant governor of the great state of Florida.

(Book 3 in the Bleacke Shifters series.)
[MF, paranormal romance, wolf shifters, Alpha heroine, geek hero, IR with secondary characters]
There's a Bleacke wind blowing...
Dewi Bleacke is the Targhee wolf pack’s Head Enforcer. As little sister to the pack’s Alpha, her older brothers have demanded she has a froufrou formal wedding. Dewi’s only consolation is that it’ll be a double ceremony, with Beck and Nami saying their vows, too.
As they prepare to head to the pack’s compound in Idaho, Enforcer Joaquin Carlomarles shows up at Dewi’s front door. Dewi had assigned him to Mexico to get him out of her and Beck’s fur, but now he has the head of a drug cartel on his tail, looking for revenge.
With orders to bring Joaquin to Idaho, Dewi and the others set off. Then an unexpected mating throws yet another monkey wrench into the plans. That’s when danger finds the Targhee pack, forcing Ken to extremes he never dreamed for survival. Keeping himself and Nami alive in the Idaho wilderness might even require help from an unexpected source, as answers to old tragedies are delivered on… A Bleacke Wind.
(Book 5 in the Bleacke Shifters series.)
It's beginning to feel a lot like...baby season.
With the Targhee wolf pack growing, Dewi's dual responsibilities as Head Enforcer and head of the expanded Pack Council are beginning to weigh on her nearly as much as her pregnancy. But it's beginning to feel a lot like the Bleacke family can't do anything the easy way. When a family Christmas vacation at the pack's Idaho compound goes sideways in completely unexpected directions, Dewi will need every ounce of patience she has not to banish half her family to the doghouse. Literally.
(Book 6 in the Bleacke Shifters series.)
Impending fatherhood is doing more than ruffling Ken’s fur…
Being the “geek grazer” husband of a female Prime Alpha wolf who’s also the Head Enforcer of her pack isn’t the easiest gig in the world, but Ken’s adjusting to his new life. The fact that his brothers-in-law are also the Pack Alpha and the pack’s second in command doesn’t exactly lower Ken’s stress levels. Now that Dewi’s pregnant with their first child, Ken’s doing his best not to feel overwhelmed.
Easier said than done.
Except Ken’s more at home with computers than Pack Musters and wolf politics. Unfortunately, now the Pack Alpha has tasked Ken with a nearly impossible assignment—trying to help the brothers and their mates keep baby-sister Dewi’s surprise baby shower a secret.
A wolf hasn’t just met his mate…but his match.
Dewi Bleacke’s life is complicated enough, between settling in with Ken, her new vegetarian mate, being the Targhee pack’s Head Enforcer, and trying to manage daily responsibilities running the extended pack council there in Tampa.
Oh, yeah, her brothers insist on a formal wedding.
But when long-time friend and Enforcer partner, Beck, finds his mate during an operation, Dewi feels guilty that he has to let her go or risk the completion of their job. She makes it her responsibility to help Beck track her down.
Looks like the headstrong Namiyah Drexler won’t be easy to get along with. Until Nami’s family gets in trouble, and she needs Dewi’s help to save them. Adding insult to injury, Nami teams up with Ken to help plan the shifter wedding of all weddings.
Dewi would rather face a drug gang than wear a froufrou dress…or, she just might have to do both.

"Where do you get your ideas?"

MEET THE GOVERNOR: He kneels for only ONE man.

Who is also, as of when we were sworn in this morning, my lieutenant governor.
