Welcome to the Multiverse!
The Mender, Book 1
A lost time traveler, a Comanche warrior, and their love across clashing worlds.
The multiverse is broken. Mender Eva, a true believer in the time-traveling cult of Lux Libera, has dedicated her life to merging the world’s reality, one shattered universe at a time — but she can’t do that while stranded in 1835 Texas.
Injured and separated from her mission partner, Eva must find a way home. And there’s another problem: the handsome young farmer, Jim, who rescued her. If she’s not careful, he may have her questioning everything she’s ever believed.
Jim, a former Comanche captive, has been forced to return to Anglo society as an adult. A man of his word, he aims to keep a promise to an old friend even while he struggles to find acceptance within Austin’s colony of San Felipe. But first, he must come to terms with his past and the things he did to survive.
This first installment of The Mender Trilogy invites readers on an epic journey through pre-revolutionary Texas.
The Captive, Book 2
Love or Duty: An Assassin’s Choice
No longer a time-traveling assassin, Eva is desperate to start a new life with her husband — but her conscience has other plans.
When enemies attack the wealthiest plantation in Austin’s Colony, she and her husband, Jim, must flee a vengeful mob to take shelter with his family. The only problem is, Jim hasn’t seen his Comanche village in three years. And he’s not sure he’ll be welcome, especially with an Anglo-looking wife.
For Eva, their escape heralds an end to their honeymoon and takes her farther from her former mission partner, Tophe — a sworn sword, just like she was. While she’s had a change of heart, he has not, and if Tophe completes their mission, eighty men will be massacred.
In this second exciting installment of The Mender Trilogy, Eva must find a way to stop him — without starting a war with the time-traveling cult, Lux Libera.
The Guardian, Book 3
A reformed assassin must choose between loyalty and justice as she tries to stop her former partner from altering history.
War has erupted in Texas, and time-traveling assassin Eva is heading straight into the middle of it — with a desperate plan.
Originally sent to 1836 with her mission partner, Tophe, their assignment was to kill Francisca Alavez, the Angel of Goliad, a woman destined to save eighty men from a massacre. And things would have gone as planned if Eva hadn’t been stranded in the wrong place and at the wrong time.
Instead, six months later, Eva finds herself married, pregnant, and — despite her husband’s disapproval — determined to stop the assassination. And when one of those men doomed to die becomes her husband, she will have to make the hardest choice of her life: who to save. She will only have time for one.
This thrilling conclusion of The Mender Trilogy immerses readers in a revolution where nothing is black and white.
