Summary: Journalist Will Corwin has returned from his ordeal as a captive of the hybrid alien Warlord, Nod Korvus. But even as he attempts to settle back into his life and career, he finds the experience won’t let go of him. His mind becomes increasingly fractured by the trauma, to the point that he’s no longer even sure what is real and what isn’t. Dr. Amelia Warren wants to help him heal, but to do so means that she needs to call in a professional, which Will both resists as well as resents. Can she get through to him, before he does irreparable damage to himself and their relationship? When Will glimpses a path toward healing, it’s by finishing the last work of Father Damien Morgan, the priest who befriended Will, and who Nod Korvus brutally murdered, as a way of punishing him. Will wants to complete the school Father Morgan was building, but the Church has cancelled the project. Will decides to revive the project, calling upon his family resources for assistance. And when help is offered, it means turning his life upside down. Can Will build the school without abandoning the rest of his responsibilities? And, if he does, will it provide the healing he so desperately needs? And what of Amelia, and his stepson, Jonah? Must he leave them behind for the long months that building the school will take? What form will his healing take, and will there be something left of his life when it is done? And what new dangers lurk in the village of Burden? This is Burden of the Stars, the third book in Broken Stars, the steamy romantic sci-fi series by Chad Grayson.

Summary: Journalist Will Corwin and Doctor Amelia Warren have started to build a life together on the war-torn colony of Amara. They are even raising a child, Amelia’s ten-year-old brother, Jonah. While Will struggles to integrate his new security detail into his work, he pursues an interview he’s wanted for a long time, and makes a decision--and takes a risk--in order to get the story. When that risk backfires, and he is abducted by the hybrid alien warlord, Nod Korvus, it will be a struggle to balance his life with his integrity. Amelia wants Will back, desperately, but in order to do so, will she be willing to betray everything he stands for? And how will the arrival of the Duchess Ezri Sinclair, Will’s domineering mother--who very much does not approve of Amelia--complicate the rescue effort? This is Among the Captive Stars, the sequel to All the Promised Stars, and the second installment in Broken Stars, a series of steamy romantic sci-fi novels by Chad Grayson.

Summary: Five years ago, Will Corwin promised his family that he would come back to serve their Noble House, if they allowed him the time to pursue his career as a journalist. Now, that time is almost up, and the promise is due. Will travels to the war-torn Amara colony to interview the half-alien leader of a resistance movement, who might hold the secret to lasting peace, his last story to file. But fate intervenes, and when he meets a devout healer, Sister Amelia, their attraction cannot be denied, despite her vow of celibacy, and the fact that his mother has already arranged a marriage between him and another woman, upon which an alliance depends. For the last nine years, Amelia Warren has been a sacred healer for a holy order. But family crises, as well as the fated meeting with Will Corwin, make her reconsider her life choices. But leaving the order is not an option, as Sisters who leave must give up their powers, which inevitably leads to painful withdrawal and eventual death. As the war heats up on Amara, can Will and Amelia defy duty and tradition and establish a relationship, or are they destined to say goodbye before they can even come together? This is All the Promised Stars, the first in a series of steamy sci-fi romance novels by Chad Grayson.
