Riven is a shapeshifter who can be anybody in the galaxy-but who is he, really, when he’s alone in the dark? Aleta is an empath who can feel anybody’s emotions, but what are her own emotions at the end of the day? And who are they together, when they team up to destroy the galaxy’s violent drug trade? Forced into service to a family of wealthy drug runners, Aleta fears her temptation to wield their power, a power she lacked as an impoverished orphan. Determined to destroy those same drug runners, Riven fears that his undercover mission will destroy Aleta as well. Ensnared in a web of mistaken identities and deadly political intrigue, Aleta and Riven struggle to survive: a shapeshifter and an empath, in search of themselves.

New Woman (20090803)
Sebastian Malheur is the most dangerous sort of rake: an educated one. When he’s not scandalizing ladies in the bedchamber, he’s outraging proper society with his scientific theories. He’s desired, reviled, acclaimed, and despised—and he laughs through it all. Violet Waterfield, the widowed Countess of Cambury, on the other hand, is entirely respectable, and she’d like to stay that way. But Violet has a secret that is beyond ruinous, one that ties her irrevocably to England’s most infamous scoundrel: Sebastian’s theories aren’t his. They’re hers. So when Sebastian threatens to dissolve their years-long conspiracy, she’ll do anything to save their partnership…even if it means opening her vulnerable heart to the rake who could destroy it for good.
