Many centuries from now, on a dark, gritty prison world, life is cheap and hope is as scarce as sunlight. Dark World is proof that the future is not always bright.
Tess Logan is an agent for the Resistance, an organization opposed to the Overseer government. When she is captured and sent to a Dark World as punishment, her life seems to be over. That is, until she meets Vincent–a mysterious and handsome man who is as powerful as he is charming. The problem is, Vincent is a vampire, or a victim of Xenovirus 423, depending on your perspective. Can she trust Vincent with her secrets? Can she trust him with her love?
Paula Wright is a prison shuttle pilot who crash lands on Dark World, hurt and stranded. There is a war going on and danger is everywhere. Fortunately, an attractive human soldier and commander named Jerod rescues her from the hot jungle, and helps nurse her back to health. Paula’s sharp mind is cautious, but her body is willing, and soon she finds herself falling for this tall, dark man. Suspense and steamy passions combine to form a dangerous bond, as they try to stay alive on a world that wants them dead.
On Dark World, the thrills are high…and the stakes even higher!

Read an excerpt…
Jerod ignored his words and lowered the business end of his laser rifle until the barrel was level with Solan’s forehead. “You may be tough, Solan, but are you laser-to-the-head-at-point-blank-range tough? I wonder.”
“What do you want from me, human?”
“The girl. Release her to us—now.”
“The female is mine.”
“Suit yourself. I’ll be sure to put ‘The female is mine’ in big letters on your tombstone when I bury you. Then again, a pain in the ass like you deserves an unmarked grave, wouldn’t you agree?” Jerod braced his weapon and prepared to pull the trigger.
“Wait!” Solan shouted.
Jerod hesitated for a second.
A second was all that Solan needed. With superhuman strength, he grabbed the woman with both hands and flung her up at Jerod like a toy—but not before sinking his yellow teeth into the tender flesh of her right palm. A glistening trail of lycan saliva, commingled with the female pilot’s blood, and ran down her hand as she collided with Jerod.
“You want her, you can have her. But she is still mine. Let’s see how long you will keep her when she changes before your very eyes!” With that, Solan sprang to his feet and fled with his remaining men who survived the attack. By the time Jerod caught the woman in his arms and laid her gently on the ground, Solan was gone.
