The Commons, Book 1
All Lily wants is a fresh start. A desk job in a cryonics lab, miles from home, seems like the perfect way to begin her new life. She just doesn’t expect her employers to be a pair of power-hungry psychopaths from the far future who won’t let anyone stand in their way, including their quiet receptionist.
Hauling a pile of museum artifacts in a dilapidated patrol ship, the worst things Captain Rian Marska expects to deal with are bickering crew members and a long, lonely trip across the galaxy. An Earth exhibit coming to life and claiming to be from the year 2017 is not something he imagined possible. Nor is he able to admit the feelings she stirs up in him.
When Rian’s superiors sweep Lily under the rug, they take it upon themselves to find out why she was taken from her own time and what her kidnappers want. What they discover has implications not only for them, but for the entire civilized universe.
The Commons, Book 2
Lieutenant Honora Kharn lives and breathes the Kurran Empire’s Special Ops unit: A highly skilled fighter pilot and warrior, she is selected to go back in time and thwart a plot by the Nym, the number-one enemy of civilized space. When she returns home with a man critically injured by Nym agents, she finds herself dishonorably discharged from Special Ops, and responsible for a man centuries from where he should be.
Andrew Claybourne realized too late that the scientists he trusted to handle his final affairs were anything but. When he finds himself hundreds of years into the future with only the irritable and antisocial Lieutenant Kharn for company, it’s difficult to find an upside to the otherwise interesting new time he’s landed in.
Unable to get along but strangely drawn to each other, they try to forge new lives for themselves as they travel through space together. But when the opportunity to go home surfaces, neither of them are sure if that’s where they truly belong.
