|A love beyond time -- and space.|
When the woman known as the Black Star Princess falls into the hands of enemy ship captain Mikiel, they discover a love that brings them together, along with the crews of their cyborg vessels. And they uncover the long-ago betrayal that condemned lovers Nani and Darian to endless servitude as the heart of those vessels.
The events that condemned Nani and Darian to a living hell have inextricably bound together everyone they hold dear. They'll do whatever it takes to find one another in the vast reaches of space -- and to unite their peoples. But as more and more trusted friends are revealed complicit in their long-ago betrayal, it seems there's no one they can trust -- but each other. Is what they had so long ago still strong enough to heal the rift that threatens to tear their home worlds apart?

5 Nymphs! -- Scandalous Minx, Literary Nymphs
"The author peppers tidbits throughout the story that seem innocuous, but make the reader curious, without hinting that they are part of a larger mystery. When the first twist in the story is finally revealed, it is absolutely mind-boggling in the most delicious way! As the pieces of the puzzle fall into place one by one, we see that there were no superfluous moments in the story, and see Karland for the craftsman she truly is."

"Marteeka Karland takes us on an interstellar romp that is both convincing and erotic in nature. This well-written sequel lives up to its predecessor's story and gives us a glimpse into those aboard the ship and the varied people that make up the crew. The fiery connection between Damon and Phoebe is fantastic."

"This was a well-written story, with several twists and turns. I truly enjoyed the characters, Phoebe and Damon, but the secondary characters were just as intriguing. I am hoping there will be more to come from these wonderful characters in the future."

"Third in an exciting futuristic tale, Black Star Diamond is a terrific addition... I enjoyed the fast pace, scorching sexual interludes and the overall entertaining style found in Black Star Diamond."
-- Lisa, Joyfully Reviewed
"Fast paced and full of the kind of no-holds-barred sex that Marteeka Karland excels at writing, Black Star Diamond once again proves that this is a sci-fi series you just shouldn't miss."
-- Lori Ann, RRT Erotic
"Menage sex is definitely a strong point in Ms. Karland's repertoire as she keeps it unique and titillating rather than just another bit of fluff to keep the story an adult rated fantasy. The story itself is full of action as the living being within the ship's makeup helps them fight for their lives. This is a great series.."
-- Dee Dailey, The Romance Studio
"Black Star Diamond is filled with action, erotic play and suspense. Marteeka has fast become one of the authors I can rely on to deliver a well-written story."

Praise for Black Star United
"This was a fantastic farewell to one of my favorite series. We got to see all of the previous characters in fleeting roles and The Black Star was saved. It really doesn't get much better than that. Oh, did I mention the scorching hot reunion? Marteeka Karland took a fantastic idea and ran with it. I am very happy to have been able to be here throughout."
