An imperfect hero battles his inner demons in a race against time to save the woman he loves... First he had to rescue her. Then he’d try to win her back. A Marine serving in the galactic frontier, Lieutenant Lukas Frank has a lot in common with a street dog named Bang-Bang; they both started off as scrappy orphans fighting to survive—and beat the odds. Things change when Bang-Bang leads Lukas to starpilot Captain Carlynn Riga. The tough war hero learns what it means to surrender—his heart. Lukas’s struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, threaten to tear the three of them apart, but nothing threatens them more than when Carlynn goes missing in action. Now the rugged, emotionally scarred Marine and his K-9 partner must find Carlynn and bring her home, or risk losing everything he has finally found worth fighting for. (Expanded from the novella “Stray“, originally published in the Pets in Space 1 Anthology) “A heart-pounding space adventure!” —Goodreads “I have never read anything by this author before and I have been missing out. What a wonderful story that kept me reading right to the end. It grips you from the first words” —Goodreads “Sparks fly when Lucas, the Marine hero, meets Carlynn, the star pilot. A few months later different sparks fly and Lucas learns what it’s like to lose everything he always wanted. Can he find Carlynn and win her back?” —Goodreads “I am once again spell-bound by Susan’s thoughtful literary approach of bringing into play Bang-Bang to examine the risks associated with an unfolding love story and the way our past history opens as well as cloaks the heart to direct our present and future.” —Goodreads “Beyond the romance it dealt with the very real issue of PTSD really well, covering not only the person who has it but how it can effect those who love and care for them. I absolutely adored Bang Bang and cant wait to read Puppy’s story.” —Goodreads

An injured veterinarian and a cyborg with unusual pets must join forces to save their town. The vast Central Galactic Concordance strictly prohibits genetic experimentation and alteration of humans on any of its 500 member planets. Animals aren’t so lucky. On a frontier planet, veterinarian Bethnee Bakonin made a home for herself in the frozen north. Her minder talent for healing all kinds of animals would ordinarily assure her success, but her unwilling stint in the shady pet trade industry left her damaged and scared. She works around her limitations as best she can, and rescues pet trade castoffs. “Volunteered” for a black-box research project, elite forces Jumper Axur Tragon now has dangerous experimental tech in his cybernetic limbs. He escaped and crash-landed a stolen freighter in the northern mountains of a frontier planet, only to discover a secret shipment of designer pets was part of the cargo. Determined to do right by them, he enlists reluctant Bethnee’s aid in caring for them—a definite challenge, considering Bethnee is terrified of him. When greedy mercenaries come raiding, can Axur and Bethnee work together to overcome their limitations, with help from their unusual pets, and save the day? It's a deadly adventure—with pets—in the fringes of space.

STAR PUPPY Prince Rornn feels fortunate he can pursue his passions both in the air and on the ground. Being third in line for the throne definitely has its advantages – it allowed him to join the Space Forces as a top-gun starfighter pilot. What he doesn’t expect is to find a woman there who not only competes with him – she completes him. They’re already best friends, so why can’t he convince her that they’d be even better as more? Trysh joined the Space Forces with the secret hope that her absentee father might notice her accomplishments and acknowledge her. At the top of her game as a starfighter pilot, the last thing she needs is a way too charming prince to get in her way. Trysh learned at a young age what happened when a person lost their heart to someone above their social class – it led to heartbreak. But lately Rornn has her wondering if she wouldn’t mind being proved wrong. Then they rescue a tiny, starving yipwag pup from an alien world. It turns out that “Puppy” is as good at sniffing out terrorists as she is at helping her two clueless humans figure out that they need each other as much as they do her. Now all Rornn’s got to do is convince Trysh that he’s nothing like her father and that she’s just the right woman for him…before the terrorists discover their furry little companion.

Bei Tessa, deren Alltag mit Job und Familie mehr als ausgefüllt ist – bis der technische Fortschritt sie einholt. Und bei der Archivarin Isabel, die sorgfältig die alten Traditionen bewahrt, die die Menschheit im Exil zusammenhalten sollen.

A bureaucrat and an interstellar trader must overcome treachery and their broken past to save the last inhabitants of a dying planet. Frontier planet Polaris-Gamma is dying, afflicted by a suspiciously-timed blight that destroys all crops. Worse, the whole system is now under military quarantine by the Central Galactic Concordance to prevent the catastrophic blight from spreading. The settlers must escape—or perish. Caught behind the blockade, independent trader Gavril Danilovich finds his interstellar trading ship commandeered in the desperate plan to escape. He tells himself that's the only reason he stays, and not because he's worried about the woman he walked out on two years ago—who still lives on Pol-G. Supply depot manager Anitra Helden races to gather the last of Pol-G's assets. Her plan to launch a mothballed freighter off Pol-G may be crazy—but it can work, if she can talk Gavril into helping.
