About the Book

Three adventurous science fiction romance books from Christine Pope’s Gaian Consortium series:


Welcome to Iradia, a place where money talks and the stars offer escape…

In a world where treacherous crime lords hold sway, Miala Fels’ father becomes a victim of their malevolence. Determined to exact revenge, she embarks on a perilous journey to hack into a villain’s financial empire and steal their ill-gotten wealth.

But fate has other plans in store for her.

After the vicious crime lord Arlen Mast meets his demise at the hands of a rival, Miala finds herself thrust into a whirlwind of action and emotion. As she nurses one of Mast’s enforcers, the infamous mercenary Eryk Thorn, back to health, their destinies entwine, setting the stage for an epic tale of passion and adventure.

Miala has a singular objective in mind: to enlist Thorn’s aid in facilitating her escape from Iradia, in exchange for a share of Mast’s concealed treasures. Little does she anticipate that their alliance will kindle an intense, star-crossed love, destined to change the trajectory of their lives forever.


A tale as old as time, set in a brand-new world…

In the heart of a remote Gaian colony, Anika Jespers, a humble homesteader’s daughter, envisions her future as a series of unending days tending to her family’s farm. But fate weaves an unexpected twist when her father strikes a deal with their enigmatic neighbor, one of the otherworldly Zhore.

Unsure what to make of her new life — and the alien who shares it — Anika must let go of everything she’s ever known…and open her heart to the last person she ever thought would claim it.


Trust is a dangerous gamble…

For centuries, humans and Stacians have been locked in an apparently unending feud, rendering trust between them a rare commodity. But then Gaian Captain Lira Jannholm faces an unexpected proposition from Stacian starship commander Rast sen Drenthan, aimed at quelling a volatile standoff over a planet brimming with coveted resources. After Lira’s career nosedives through no fault of her own, she forms an uneasy alliance with Rast to unravel the mystery behind her fall from grace.

Escaping from their enemies in a ship stolen from a notorious sector criminal, Rast and Lira stumble upon a dangerous conspiracy that involves the highest levels of government. Their survival hinges on protecting a perilous secret that could reshape the galaxy’s power dynamics, jeopardizing not just their lives…but also their budding future together.
