a Jim Money Story (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: Jim Money just wants his money back from Chuck. Chuck refuses to pay it back, and when Chuck's hardened brothers show up, Jim is forced to back down as shots are fired as he narrowly escaped danger.

Jim calls his best friend Steve to go collect from Chuck. Meanwhile, Jessica explains to Jim that although she loves the money he makes from illegal gambling and hustling, she wants a normal life free of the dangers associated with his lifestyle. After spending years building his gambling empire, Jim is reluctant at first, but he thinks about it awhile and decides to take a gamble. Besides, he would have a loving wife, and a stable family life free of the criminal elements that haunt him. He realizes that he could have that with Jessica. But before Jim could tell her, she receives a phone call and shuts Jim out.

THE NEXT DAY...

Jim receives a phone call from Carla, Steve's wife.

She insists that her husband and Jessica are having a fling. Jim denies that Jessica or Steve would do that to him, but he humors Carla. He picks her up and they go to Jessica's house. But when they arrive, they are greeted with a more sinister truth.

Will Jim Money get the wife and family life that he wants, or is he biting off more than he can chew?

Zoe McKinley has a boring life, an awful job, and a boss that throws staplers at her head. What could be worse?
How about being abducted by Aliens?

When Zoe is dragged aboard an extraterrestrial ship, she thinks she's been chosen as a concubine by the huge red-skinned male with horns and a devilish grin because he has a hard-on for Earth girls. But Sarden has worse plans for her--he wants to trade her to an alien petting zoo!

Can Zoe convince him she's worth saving? And can Sarden keep from falling for the little Earth girl with the sassy attitude and the lush, plus-sized curves?

Warriors of the Twelve Peoples—Alien males who need to bond with females.

From the pen of Evangeline Anderson, the writer who brought you Brides of the Kindred, comes a new race of Alien warriors…twelve races, to be exact.

Everyone thinks that live just evolved on Earth—
Wrong.
Our planet, and twelve others, all capable of supporting Terran life, was seeded by the Ancient Ones.
Then Earth was locked away, kept safe in the cocoon of our ozone layer. But now there’s a gaping hole in our security blanket and guess who’s coming to dinner?
That’s right—the Alien warriors of the Twelve Peoples—also descended from the Ancient Ones, are looking for mates and Earth girls are their first choice.

The Vorn are feared throughout the galaxy. Savage, horned warriors, these males can be surprisingly gentle to the females they choose to bond with.
Denarins come in pairs—two muscular males who share a psychic bond... and feel the need to share one woman as well.
And the Majorans worship their females as goddesses, the very color of their skin changing with their bonded mate’s mood.
Braxians are savage with black-on-white eyes that can see every spectrum of light. They will defend their females to the last drop of blood in their huge, blue bodies.

And there are more…so many more Alien warriors to pick from.
Which type of male would you choose?
Too bad you won’t have a choice, because thanks to the Alien Mate Index, an agency that abducts Earth brides for alien males, you could be snatched at any time and turned into a massive warrior’s mate or concubine.
So the real question is—who will choose you?
