Warning- This story is set in the Bel’Tan galaxy where polyamorous relationships are the norm and love in all of its forms is accepted including M/M, M/M/F, M/M/M/F sexual situations. Basically if you don’t like hot dudes kissing hot dudes, this may not be the series for you.
As a highly decorated soldier in the US Army, Roxy had always accepted that her job was dangerous. And she understood that someday she might make the ultimate sacrifice for her country and never come home. But little did she know that she should have been keeping her sights focused on the sky, not the battlefield, for the real threat. Kidnapped by intergalactic slavers, Roxy and her fellow soldiers find themselves sold to a cruel and heartless owner who plans on using them as gladiators in an underground fighting ring in the Bel’Tan Galaxy.
Kadothian Warriors Cormac and Nosa have searched their entire lives for their Matriarch. She’s the one woman born to love them, the only woman that can save their souls from the madness. When they find out that Roxy is their bride they begin a slow seduction of the prickly Earth woman. Roxy was betrayed by her ex-husband in the worst way, and refuses to even consider a relationship with not only one man, but two. When they discover their alyah has been taken by slavers, Cormac and Nosa will do anything to save her. Even if it means infiltrating the fighting ring deep in enemy territory holding Roxy captive.
Roxy is a warrior in her own right, and as such she is smack in the middle of the chaos as what appears to be an apocalyptic event occurs. This book opens with her calling her family then as many people she can as she rushes to the National Guard Armory.
Forward to a few weeks later, Roxy’s sister has gone missing with Lorn. He’s one of the men currently living in the farmhouse next door to Casey’s house.
This is a favorite scene as Roxy in the company of her sister’s friend Paige confronts Nosa and his blood brother Cormac.
“What so you know about my sister?” Roxy demanded in a deceptively calm, cold voice. “Where’s Casey?”
It pained him to lie to her, but he couldn’t reveal anything about the Kadothian Empire until she made the full transition to Matriarch. All he needed was a kiss–one willing kiss initiated by Roxy–and he could give her his blood. Though he’d probably get his tongue bitten off if he tried to kiss her right then.
Her dark, sharp eyes narrowed on him. “You know something.”
“Forgive me, but I do not.”
Her lips drew back in a snarl, the careful calm of her icy façade cracking.
“You’re lying! I can feel it in my bones.” To his surprise, she drew a weapon from a concealed holster at her lower back. His crystal implant identified the weapon as a Ruger SR40c. She pointed it at him without hesitation. “Where. Is. She?”
“Roxy!” Paige shouted. “What the hell! Put that thing away right now.”
His blood brother made a low soothing sound. “Be at ease, alyah. We mean no harm.”
Cormac stated to move, so Roxy shifted the weapon his direction
Her aim was straight and sure as she aimed the gun at Cormac’s heart. “Don’t come any closer.”
Paige released a frustrated, groan loud enough to draw Roxy’s attention. “You promised you wouldn’t do this again! You swore to me and the sheriff that you wouldn’t threaten people anymore. You’re freaking me out! Knock it off right this instant Roxanne Eliza Westfall.”
To his surprise, Roxy blushed with embarrassment before she slowly holstered her weapon. Her gaze kept darting between them as she bit her lower lip. While her expression became blank, he caught the faintest hint of her emotions like a passing perfume caught in a breeze. Worry, sadness, exhaustion, curiosity, and confusion all colored her psychic signature–along with a tinge of discomfort. Paige made a frustrated noise then elbowed Roxy.
“What is wrong with you?” Paige whisper hissed. “You’re going to get thrown in jail! You promised your weren’t going to act like a crazy woman. You promised!”

Even Roxy has found herself insanely attracted to a couple of these men, but now her protective reflexes come to the fore and she is ready to do anything to find her sister. As tempers cool, Cormac and Nosa get her to agree to meet with them at a public place to talk. Of course that doesn’t quite go as planned.
Cormac returns to Kadothia to beg Casey to obtain permission to return home to quell the frenzy. None of the men can get close to their prospective brides because of her disappearance. She and her husbands get the council to agree and things look like they might settle down.
Roxy is so happy her sister is safe and she meets up with Cormac and Nosa again, but inadvertantly breaks their bond with Melissi. This causes all kinds of issues.
We see a lot of folks in this one, Casey and her bondmates Lorn and Nast, Paige and her bondmates, Tren and Rell, and Jaz and her bondmates, Mavet, Zentix and Tandar. Plus the initial bonds between Lacey, Gwarnon and Chel
A kidnapping, a battle to the death, a reunion with friends, and so much more. Lots of heat between the men and Roxy, and a mating that has some real tough issues.
Again I warn you: This story is set in the Bel’Tan galaxy where polyamorous relationships are the norm and love in all of its forms is accepted including M/M, M/M/F, M/M/M/F sexual situations. If you don’t like reading these things this book is not for you!
I am truly grateful words can’t melt a kindle, this books is erotic and sensual. With plenty of action, drama and suspense.

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she’s weird, and that sarcasm doesn’t translate well via text.
