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.
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.
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...
Book 1 in the Maxim Colonies series. This sci-fi/space opera romance features a male human and a non-binary alien paring, a "mail-order bride" for hire trope, m-preg, aliens who look like aliens, smol and tall pairing, 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 2 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.
Some promises can't be kept…
From birth, my life has been a series of wrong turns and dead ends. Only one person truly loved me, and I walked away from them. Now, they're unavailable.
I have a dark soul. That's what I've always been told. Makes me good at my work, though. It's kept me alive, even when I haven't cared if I lived or died. Even when I welcomed death, and it still eluded me. Makes it easy not to get attached. I guess I'm lucky.
Until an unexpected reversal of fortune thrusts me into an unwinnable situation. Now, I'm not so sure I want to die.
But a brother's unkept promise might be the only thing that keeps me alive.

Can his wily pets outsmart the Master?

They don't know how to let go, give in...or give up.
The Devastation Trilogy Box set contains all three books: Dirge, Solace, and Release.
Dirge (Book 1)
He doesn’t know how to let go…
I was a husband, a father, a politician. Now, I’m just lost.
Maybe they can help find me, I don’t know. Maybe I shouldn’t be found.
Maybe the devastation that is my life should be allowed to crumble and decay.
There is no comfort in a funeral dirge, no solace in empty words spoken to me.
There is no release from this hell but death, and I can’t do that yet.
I don’t know how to let go.
But…maybe they can help me hold on.
Solace (Book 2)
He doesn’t know how to give in…
I’m in way over my head. I’m waiting for someone to point a finger at me and call me an imposter.
I don’t belong here.
Yet I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be.
I don’t know what the hell this is between us, but even while I hate it, I crave it, like a damn drug.
I need it.
I need them.
And I’ll do whatever it takes to stay here, even if it means giving up who I am.
Release (Book 3)
She doesn’t know how to give up…
The excuses are gone, and the gloves are off.
Except there’s a jungle of pain to carve through first, and I don’t know if I’m strong enough.
All I know is I’m willing to try, if they are.
I suspect if we can make it through to the other side that we’ll be unstoppable.
It’s the journey that’s a bitch, though.
So buckle up, buttercup. It’s going to be a wild ride.
The Devastation Trilogy is a no-holds-barred political romance set in the world of the Governor Trilogy series and can be read independently from that series. It contains a MMF pairing, including crossed swords, and features power exchange dynamics, older main characters, an age-gap romance, gay-for-you that surprises both of them, some FemDom action but mostly MaleDom, a secret workplace romance that could shatter all three of their political careers and end a governorship, old secrets, new secrets, survival after unspeakable tragedy, panty-dropping desktop shenanigans, two Dominants using their shared subby as a (willing) chew toy, second chances at happiness, and a satisfying HEA. George Forrester's character was first introduced in Lieutenant (Governor Trilogy 2) but you do not have to read that book to enjoy this trilogy.
They're the toughest decision he'll ever make.
Elliot Woodley has dreamed about being president ever since he was a kid. He's spent his entire life working toward that goal, even though it's meant living in the deepest and darkest of closets to do so.
Except Leo saw through him. Elliot knows he should let the man go…
Yet he can't.
He also knows Leo's deliberately baiting him with Jordan.
Leo insists they can have it all. Jordan doesn't seem to grasp how badly things can go if their secret escapes.
Elliot can't stand the thought of the two of them walking off into the sunset together and leaving him behind.
But can he find the courage to ask them to stay?
Inequitable Trilogy book 3.

It's a standalone trilogy set in the world of the Governor Trilogy.
(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.
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.
(Book 2 in the Bleacke Shifters series.)

I am Owen Taylor, governor of the great state of Florida.
