Life in the future isn’t so different after all. Welcome to Galileo, a planet of extremes where air cars and horse-drawn wagons march side by side, and powerful storms compete with the burning sun. A planet where a man can make his fortune…or lose it. Richard Tyler came to Galileo in pursuit of Anna Reches, the girl of his dreams. Taking a job at the Double P Ranch was convenient and paid the bills. He never thought he’d come to love it, nor did he expect an undeniable attraction to his employer, Miss Charlene. With two paths spread before him, which does he choose? The wealthy socialite and luxury he was born to, or the cattle rancher who challenges him at every step and makes his blood run hot? With a busy desert ranch to run, Charlene Petersmire doesn’t have time for a relationship, nor does she want one, at least not until Richard Tyler walks into her world. He’s a brilliant technician and a charming man, but as her employee he’s strictly off-limits and her heart’s been broken before by a handsome face. Does she dare cross boundaries for a man courting her enemy? Will they face the oncoming storm together, or will love be washed away by the fury of the desert rains?
Misery died so she could save the world.
That’s what they told her.
Turns out they lied.
She was once a holy warrior with a noble cause. Now she’s using her earth magic to scrape by, meal to meal, motel to motel, city to city, one step ahead of those who call her traitor. Her jobs aren’t glamorous, but in the end, beggars can't be choosers and work pays the bills.
Denver was supposed to be just one more stop over. But, between an overly enthusiastic roommate, a gorgeous healer, and a challenging – not to mention lucrative – job for the Chimera Lord of Denver, Misery isn’t finding it easy to leave.
When she discovers the lesser fae are going missing, Misery finds a new cause, a paycheck and many reasons to stay. She just hopes pursuing them won’t get her killed…again.
