Deception in Emeralds by Laura Landon

Having lost several agents already, this mission has been classified as need to know information only and the story starts off with a bang, quite literally. Barnaby Linscott was on his way to a secret rendezvous for debriefing and was shot on the way. No one Read More

Excerpt from Nighthawk: Brighton was miserable. She hung her head, looking at her feet. How can I tell him what I am thinking? How can I confide in him?

I….” He shook her, gently. “No lies,” he snapped softly. “Tell me now or we shall spend the rest of our lives here because I will not let you leave until you tell me.

Starfall by Melissa Landers

Starfall Launch Blitz, Giveaway, & a deal on Starflight!!

Hi, booklovers! I’m author Melissa Landers, and I’m so excited to launch STARFALL, the second and final book in my Starflight duology! This story picks up shortly after the first book ends, but now Cassia and Kane are the main characters, with Doran, Solara, and the rest of the Banshee crew pitching in to help take down an intergalactic mafia. (You know, just an ordinary day in space.) And while saying goodbye to characters is never easy, I think I gave the crew a proper sendoff with plenty of humor, heart, and action.
