DEFIANCE RISING, book I of Rising Trilogy
Illyria has never known a life without the Rebellion.
Nothing else matters…until she ventures out into unknown territory and is faced with an enemy that proves even more fierce and determined than she ever thought.
Bastien is infuriating, dangerous and annoyingly gorgeous. Eamon is familiar, comforting and turning into a man before her eyes. Both want her heart…but she is torn between duty and desire. When her choice affects all of mankind, how can she allow herself to be selfish?
There is a power within her that can change everyone’s fate…but she underestimated the most potent force on Earth—love. Illyria must discover if she has the strength to sacrifice her heart to save mankind.
“Now that is a beautiful sight.”
I whip around, instantly covering myself with my arms. “What are you doing here?” I scream. “Get out!”
“Aw, don’t tell me you’re a shy one. I didn’t peg you for that.” Bastien grins as he throws his leg over a rock and settles in for what appears to be an annoyingly lengthy time.
Using one arm, I swim as quickly as I can away from the center of the pool and head straight for the rocks. Bastien seems complete
ly unphazed by my rising fury and he grins down at me. He does however reach out to retrieve my dagger from the pile of clothes he’s perched beside.
“Have you no decency?” I growl through chattering teeth. If I don’t get out soon I’ll risk hypothermia, but there’s no way I’m going to give Bastien the satisfaction of seeing me naked.
Twirling the dagger in his hand, he appears to contemplate my question. “I suppose this might seem a bit forward of me, but I thought you might like to know it’s time to go.”
“Fine. Message received. Leave now!”
He leans over the edge, peering down at me. “And miss all the fun? I think not.”
RELINQUISH, book II of Rising Trilogy
The rising is over, but the war continues to rage. King Aloysius knows Illyria exists and will stop at nothing
to possess her. Jealousy drives a wedge between Illyria and Eamon. When Bastien reveals himself as her guide into enemy territory, an ambush lands them in captivity. Illyria is faced with the truth that she is not ready to face her destiny…or let Bastien go again.
VENGEANCE, book III of Rising Trilogy
Peace has come to Calisted under Illyria’s new reign as Queen. Volunteers return to Earth to help its people begin to rebuild. With her new husband at her side, Illyria has many things to celebrate and yet she worries that this time of peace is only fleeting.
Dreams of a man with piercing sapphire blue eyes haunt Illyria nightly and she can’t shake the feeling that she knows this stranger, or worse…that he knows her too.
When an attack on the palace leaves her imprisoned on a distant planet, Illyria must discover a strength within herself to survive, but she’s not fighting just for herself any more. This time mercy is not an option. All Illyria cares about is vengeance.
