A Lesser Dark (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: There are a thousand ways to die in the desert—desperate outlaws, deadly predators, murderous elements, and betrayal. . .

Kaitar Besh, a veteran scout as legendary for his cynicism as his skills, is ordered to brave the deadly Shy'war-Anquai desert one last time. Escorting Leigh Enderi—a greenhorn Enforcer with a reputation as shady as his own—he soon realizes the ghosts of his past have come to haunt more than his nightmares.

When the mission breaks down in the wake of bitter hatred and mistrust, even Kaitar's fabled skills may not be enough to bring them home again. Stranded in the red wasteland without contact, food, or water, they uncover a betrayal that could bring all they hold dear crumbling to the dust. . . and tear down the wall of lies surrounding them.

The Lost Star Tales (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Wil Litang was the competent, but not ambitious, first mate of the tramp freighter Lost Star. So, when its captain became too ill to make their usual voyage around Azminn's ring of planets, he accepted the job of acting captain with some reluctance. As it turned out, his reluctance was justified. The Lost Star had a mysterious and dangerous past – a past that had caught up with it. Litang and the crew of the Lost Star are soon driven from their comfortable orbit to some of the most dangerous places in the Nine Star Nebula, including the fabled Lost Star itself.

The Bright Black Sea is not your typical space opera. While it has space battles, it's not military SF. While it's a tale of mystery and danger, star empires are not falling, rebels are not fighting desperate battles for freedom, and the fate of the galaxy doesn't hang in the balance. And unlike many science fiction stories which are focused on ideas or a “What ifs?”, the Bright Black Sea is a character focused story, which takes early space opera motifs – space pirates, sentient robots, and rockets – and incorporates them into a modern, episodic novel set in a tiny nebula of nine stars, hundreds of planets and lawless asteroid belts.

For a different type of space adventure, join Captain Litang and the crew of the Lost Star to discover the wonders and dangers of the Nine Star Nebula.

The adventures and misadventures of Wil Litang continue in The Castaways of the Lost Star – the first “episode” of the planned companion volume, The Lost Star's Sea – a new take on the planetary romances of Edgar Rice Burroughs and his kin.

The Devil's Concubine (The Devil of Ponong series #1)
QuiTai, ruthless concubine of Levapur’s mysterious crime lord, the Devil, receives an unexpected invitation to cocktails with disgraced Thampurian Kyam Zul. She doesn’t trust Kyam enough to drink anything he pours, and won’t help him no matter how hard he begs – or threatens. But when QuiTai’s ex-lover is murdered, Kyam is the only one who knows the name of the killer, and he won’t tell QuiTai unless she helps him first.

The torpid back alleyways of Levapur’s tropical colony hide more than lovers. There are things with claws, beings with venomous fangs, and spies lurking in the jungle.

Most of them want to keep their secrets.

One of them wants QuiTai dead.

(This is the first book in Jill Braden's critically acclaimed "Devil of Ponong" series. It is a complete, full-length novel, with no cliffhanger.)
