First Contact Science Fiction

There is a time to weep and a time to mourn.

For the CSV Lion of Judah, that time has not yet come.

The war with the League of Sol ended in victory for the Terran Coalition. Major General David Cohen and his crew conclude their three-month goodwill cruise with one final FTL jump. But instead of returning home in a blaze of glory, the wormhole collapses and hurls them more than four million lightyears into the unknown.

Stranding them in a distant galaxy.

With dwindling supplies but buoyed by hope of a miracle, David follows the evidence to a nearby inhabited planet. After a disastrous first contact with the less advanced alien civilization, rival factions threaten the tenuous peace—and reignite a centuries-old genocidal conflict.

Now David and the war-weary Lion must take up arms once again to head off a catastrophic event in hopes of unlocking an ancient technology’s secrets.

Before the chance to return home is lost forever.

Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Between being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their money…and the babysitter.

Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.

But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnight is a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.

Zoe Kealoha’s work as a military scientist was supposed to change the way America hunted terrorists. It should not have made her a target. But it did.

Amidst autumn leaves and rumored ghost sighting, Alex must choose between duty to his family or the devotion of his heart.

Alex Drake, Earl of Linsfield, has spent years ensuring his brothers’ futures. But an uneasy feeling tugs at him. His young step-sister, neglected by her father, is in need of his care and protection.

Lady Elizabeth Vaughn faces a dire choice: support her family, or risk losing everything they hold dear. Her father’s health continues to decline, despite the efforts of Bath’s finest physicians. After four failed London Seasons, marriage remains an elusive salvation. The family curse is to blame, according to her aunt—it states no lady from their lineage shall marry for love.

An unconventional meeting between Adam and Elizabeth sparks an instant friendship. As they help each other find solutions, their hearts soon become entwined as well. Yet, when forced to choose, how can Alex pick between saving his step-sister, or following the desire of his heart?
