|Book one of Tales from the Edge
When Sam Keller left the military, she ran to the far end of the galaxy. Now she captains
the Bonnie Belle, a spaceship full of courtesans who bring a little pleasure to hard-up
men on mining colonies. When one of her girls turns up dead, it’s Sam’s job to find out
who killed her, fast.
Marshal Daniel LeClair is hot as a star and quick on the draw. When his vacation gets
replaced by an assignment to help find the killer, he can’t help angling for a little action
with the saucy, hard-charging Sam. She’s got brains, attitude and a body he wouldn’t
Sam, six months lonely, might just indulge him. But the Guild that owns the Belle wants
the case closed yesterday. With pressure coming from all quadrants, Sam and her
marshal clash over false leads and who’s on top. But when the killer threatens the Belle
again, romance will have to wait. It’s a captain’s job to save her crew, no matter the cost.
"... a fast-paced, well-crafted tale of murder and mystery in outer space...the author's worldbuilding- or
in this case ship-building- is spot on and the literal lack of gravity takes the story to new heights - RT

|Book two of Tales from the Edge
Catherine Rodgers doesn’t like Mercy ships, or the courtesans who work on them—not
after her husband left her for a Mercy woman. But after her yacht gets blown up to
prevent her from cracking the lid off a corporate scam that’s left hundreds dead and a
few people very rich, the only ship around to save her is the Bonnie Belle.
Sean Harrison has worked as one of the Belle’s courtesans for years, bringing
happiness to countless women along the space lanes. When he’s asked to care for
Catherine while the Belle brings her to safety, it should be just another job.
Somehow it’s anything but. Sean is captivated by Catherine’s sense of justice and
responsibility. And Catherine finds a softer, more emotionally intelligent man in Sean
than she expected. Drawn together in darkness under the threat of death, they find the
beginning of something lasting. But with pirates after the Belle and a price on Catherine’
s head, that beginning might be all they get.
"...a well-crafted romance set on board the Bonnie Belle. The Mercy ship is even more of a character
in this outing, which brings the crew together in ways they never imagined...Nantus raises the stakes
with this fast-paced tale."
