Star-Crossed Captive:
Blueshift Book One

Sworn enemies from birth, one of them heals and the other kills. 

In a future where our solar system’s resources are scarce and the struggle for power never-ending, Nia, a trauma surgeon from the ruling class of the CORE, finds herself on the front lines against the ruthless Tellusians. When her deep-space medical station is attacked, she’s taken hostage by Mace, a warrior who knows nothing but battle. Determined to escape CORE territory, he plunges her into Tellusian-controlled space.

Far from home, Nia’s survival begins with uncovering the truth behind the lies she’s been fed. But her growing attraction to the man who took her captive is an obstacle she never expected, his need to protect her a distraction she can’t afford. As she navigates the complexities of a culture far removed from her own, her captor may turn out to be her only ally.

Can she learn to trust the enemy amidst the chaos of war? Or will their opposing loyalties tear them apart?

Star-Born Anomaly:
Blueshift Book Two

She’s an anomaly and doesn’t even know it. 

In the distant future, Earth exists in a conservation zone. Researcher Wynn Lambdin is one of the few scientists privileged to still live on its surface. As a superstorm brews on the horizon, a stranger approaches her solitary outpost. Alarmingly, this trespasser walks the surface without a UV suit. That recklessness is certain to cause a slow and painful death—or at least it should. Instead, by morning the stranger has healed.

He's a Calypson, one of the mysterious residents of Sector Ten, known for twisting humans into husks of their former selves—a fate that horrifies Wynn and the rest of the system.

With all communication cut off due the storm, Wynn must protect herself against its deadly danger and the man who has taken refuge in her outpost. He turns out to be nothing like she would expect: a curious soul with a penchant for the literal. Inexplicably drawn to him, she declares a truce to wait out the storm despite his insistence he has come to “collect” her.

Their tentative peace is shattered when the eye of the storm brings a CORE Agent to her doorstep. Wynn becomes a target, trapped in the middle of a war and two opposing forces. With no way to know who to trust, unravelling the secrets of her past will force her to navigate a dangerous game of survival.
