Starfire is technically the third title in the series. It's also the second full length novel and to be honest kind of holds a special place in my heart. It was where I first started playing with really broken characters. Jemma is pretty close to my fave and pairing her with Raven still feels so darned right.
But let me know your thoughts!
“You need to let me do my job, Raven. I know how you feel, but you can’t be here now.” Her voice was soft but firm.
“I need to be with—” His voice was hoarse with fear. She looked pale, abrasions clear on her face, as she lay so still.
Jemma and Raven find forever on the eve of war.
Jemma Cardnew is hard-nosed and determined. Her life consisted of growing up in an orphanage, only to be kidnapped and dumped at the academy without choice by those in charge of the Elector. She deems anyone telling her how to live her life to be high-handed. That includes Raven, the ship’s gorgeous engineer, no matter how much she feels emotionally drawn to him.
Raven Fraser has a multitude of problems: the power matrix of the Elector is leaving the ship unprotected and afloat in space while Crick Sur Banden taunts the Empire, leaving them on the verge of war. And the woman he dreams of is avoiding him, playing havoc with his concentration.
Thrust together under trying circumstances, the promise of explosive passion consumes them both as they attempt to save the Empire.
Content Warning: Space travel, violence, and evil aliens abound

Where To Buy
Let's face it, times are pretty tough right now. With everyone walking around aware that at any second, they could catch the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) we all need something to brighten our lives.
With that in mind, I'm planning on releasing a series of readings by me, of my books. Today, I thought I'd start with Miss Elspeth's Desire.
I hope you enjoy this!
I'm always aware that things crop up in the author world and sometimes people react negatively to them, In the hopes of being transparent, I am in the process of trademarking my Pen Name: Imogene Nix
As many may know, some years ago I lost my original domain, www.imogenenix.com and I've been struggling to gain it back. One of the many things I had considered was TM'ing Imogene Nix and using it as the impetus of dealing with the CyberSquatters who'd held it to ransom.
Part of the plan was to TM Imogene Nix in order to disallow anyone else from access. As things pan out, I've been spending a lot of time lately putting the groundwork together. Then last week, I learned I could regain the imogenenix.com domain. However, it occurred to me, that TM'ing Imogene Nix for the purposes of "Publishing Books" would do more than assist me with regain the domain, it would also allow me to use that name (and that's all I'm TM'ing) for the purposes of Brand Protection.
I've been using it since 2011 so with an extensive history and books lining up everywhere, it makes sense to ensure that no one else can use that as their pen name. (Which is all I'm looking for.)
So below is a screenshot of the actual filing information.
Unlike other authors, I only seek to keep the pen name from being used by others for the purposes of a pen name. This is expressly for the purposes of publishing. This does not stop someone using their real name in life. It purely allows me to protect the publishing arm of my business.
Class 41 is totally 100% being used for Entertainment Purposes.
I'm more than happy to answer questions if anyone has any. I'm more than happy to explain what I'm doing and discuss ramifications however, this is not about stopping people using the name in real life, if they are a sewer, a dancer or anything else.

This initial filing is in Australia. I will later on be undertaking to TM it Internationally.
