Here’s the Friday weekly peek for my upcoming book/spinoff from A World Beyond.

Rook and Seraphina were wonderful to work with. Can’t wait for readers to meet them.

“It’s true.” She stopped fighting and took a step toward him. Her finger poked at his chest. “You’re helping a known criminal. He’s worth more alive to the Alliance despite what he does. Forget everyone else. Forget those he’s harmed. As long as he has some value to them. Just forget Every. Damn. Thing. Else.”

Rook ran his hand down his face, weariness making him lose his focus. The emotions she brought out in him strangled him. He couldn’t reveal the truth without making things worse. It was bad enough she’d already figured out the salient points.

“Five minutes, Hunter One,” Kjar warned in his ear comm.

  He had to keep her here a little longer for the others to arrive.

“Rook, please. Just let me leave.” The look in her eyes begged him to do the right thing.

“Niehl’s death will increase the scrutiny on you,” Rook said but his heart wasn’t in it.

Seraphina shook her head frantically. “I didn’t kill him. Someone else did. Use the fancy tech I know you have access to and it will show the laser fire didn’t come from this roof. It came from the left and ruined my shot.”

There had been two shooters. Ghost Unit had confirmed. She must have sensed him weakening because she continued. “I have to do this, Rook. You can pretend all you want but you know what I’m doing is right. Jarad needs to be stopped.”

“Let someone else stop him,” he found himself saying.

“We’re in the building and on our way up,” Kjar reported. “Distract Tempest as long as possible if you have her. We’ve got your back.”

Disappointment crested Seraphina features as she watched him. She knew he was commed. She expected him to turn her in. A slow crack widened in his chest. If he let the team take her in, she’d never forgive him.


Not being selected as a Jutak warrior ruined Rook Atrian’s dreams of becoming one of the famed soldiers. Until an elite covert team reached out to him. Tasked with the darker missions that straddle the lines between right and wrong, the Ghost Unit fits him better than anything he could have imagined.

But now one woman jeopardizes the life he’s made. Her passion burns as bright as a flame and Rook’s never been afraid of getting burned.

Their mission versus their love. Which will either of them choose?

**From the universe that brought you A World Beyond comes a new series about hot, alien soldiers. Meet the members of Ghost Unit.

    I can’t wait to read it. I loved your World Beyond series, and even have them in audiobook.
