The Devil Within When a man makes a pact with the devil, he does so not in exchange for untold wealth, health, love, or longevity, but in order to stimulate his mind (he loathes boredom and despises boring people). The devil agrees to grant him the intelligence to survive in a hostile world, and soon the man stands in the very shadow of God, presiding over decisions that spell life and death for virtually every human being on the face of Mother Earth.
But “Mother” soon turns to “Mutha” as Markinson fails to anticipate his still human weaknesses and eventually falls in lust bordering on love. The only problem: the woman is a Central European Command (CEC) operative who has been assigned to paranormal investigations into terrorist links. When she learns from her lover who he really is and where he gets his power—and, worse, that he knows who she really is--she sets out to do the only thing her conscience will allow her to do. She must destroy him, even if it means making her own pact with the devil to do so!
Hidden Stars Shasti Rainhell is recruited by a Confederate spymaster for an expedition to find the origin of a new threat. A golden oval starship has landed on a Confederate world spreading death and panic. Where did it come from? What is lurking in the dark beyond known space?
Was Once a Hero Reluctant privateer Robert Fenaday searches the stars for his lost love. He’s joined by the genetically engineered assassin, Shasti Rainhell, whose cold perfection masks a dark past. Both are blackmailed by government spymaster, Mandela, into a suicidal mission to a doomed planet. Leading a team of scientists and soldiers, they must unravel the mystery of a planet’s death before an ancient force reaches out to destroy them.
Fearful Symmetry Having survived the nightmare world of Enshar, Robert Fenaday abandons privateering and his quest for his lost wife to begin life anew with the genetically engineered assassin, Shasti Rainhell. But spymaster Mandela has other plans for the pair, intrigue and murder on Shasti’s home planet of Olympia. Fenaday must fight his way to Shasti, facing her deadly creator and an alien mystery that could destroy the Confederacy.
Points of Departure Robert Fenaday must drive the starship Sidhe across uncharted space to rescue his wife before war breaks out. But can he keep his command from mutiny and his former lover Shasti Rainhell from murder as well?
