They say in space, no one can hear you scream. But in the Badlands you can scream all you want. No one gives a damn.
Vikings: Like the gates of Hell, the military base of Camerico marks the line between order and chaos, in this case, civilization and the Badlands. Only Warriors -- Genetically Engineered Elite Forces -- keep the evil that occupies the Badlands at bay. But the Warriors have become as uncivilized as the lands they police. They make their own laws, and they take what they want -- and right now they want Amy.
Spartans: Lysander, Calix, and Thanos are warriors currently patrolling inside the Badlands. Artemis has been watching the trio -- she knows they are her true mates. She just hopes she can break through Thanos's grief and guilt before he does something stupid. Like letting himself get killed.
Comanche: Aylen has devoted her life to educating children. Determined not to recycle the myths the government force-feeds the populace, she prides herself on teaching her students the truth about the government and the history of humanity. But then a myth shows up at her door. One touch and Aylen's life will never be the same.
Marines: Michael, Alec and Vic are on a mission to rescue the Warrior they are convinced is their mate. It will take the help of many Warriors and Mutants to get them across the Badlands to the Great Abandoned City in the East. Fortunately Evandra can take anything the Badlands -- or her Marines -- can dish out. And follow it up with plenty of her own.
The Fin: The time has come for Que, King of the Fin, Raf, Right Hand of the King, and Kor, Master of the Guard, to find a queen. But not from the corrupt lands ruled by humans. Their queen must be pure of heart and as courageous as any warrior. More dangers than death lurk under the sea in the Badlands. And learning to swim won't help you escape.
Publisher's Note: Badlands contains the previously published novellas Vikings, Spartans, Comanche, Marines, and The Fin.

Excerpt from Marines
Breathy moans tickled Vic's senses. The sweet fragrance of feminine breath made him inhale deeply, trying to capture the elusive scent. If he could just hold something of the woman close to him, he could find her anywhere. Through the shadowy gloom, he could just make out a woman with long, flowing hair. The breeze caught the blue-black strands, whipping them all around her like a silken cloud as she walked toward them. The sway of her hips sent blood straight to his cock, and he heard one of his pod mates groan.
Vic turned his head slightly, never taking his gaze from the woman but able to see Alec to his left. Without looking, he knew Michael was on the other side and that he was adjusting his pants over his aching crotch. Vic marked that little detail down to it being a dream. Being pod mates, there had been a tentative mental connection, but nothing like this.
Without asking, Vic knew Michael's cock ached just looking at the woman. Alec couldn't believe any of it was happening and was as confused as Vic was. If this was only a dream, why did it feel all too real?
No. It wasn't just the feelings mixing through all of them. It was everything. Sight. Scent. Sound. Sensation. Vic was certain that, if he closed the scant few feet separating him and the woman, he could bend his head and taste her golden brown skin. His dream was that real.
Instinctively, he knew the woman was Juliette's mother. The woman they searched for. Though why they all seemed so fascinated with the perfection of her body, he didn't know. All that mattered, however, was scooping her up and carrying her back to camp.
And making love with her until she knew who she truly and completely belonged to.
"I belong to no one." Her voice seemed to echo in the stillness around them. "I make my own destiny. But I like the making love idea." Her voice was teasing. Mesmerizing. Her face was shrouded in mist, but the blue-black of her hair and golden hue of her skin peeked at him with tantalizing glimpses of what he was sure would be paradise. Her startlingly vivid blue eyes seemed to glow from the mist as she continued to approach them. Vic could never quite get a good look at her face, but he knew she would be beautiful.
She knelt before them, the fog swirling around their thighs and her body, obscuring her even though she was so close Vic could feel the warmth of her breath brushing his cock.
The others moved closer. Both of them stroked themselves openly, unashamed of the effect the woman had on them. Vic found he had much the same feelings and he grasped his cock, offering it to her just to see what she'd do.
Without hesitation, she wrapped slender-fingered hands around Alec and Michael as she held Vic's gaze. "I bow to no man, Warrior." Her eyes never left his. "Remember this night because I'll never do it again."
When her mouth closed around Vic, his eyes crossed and he threw his head back and groaned. His knees nearly buckled, but he held himself upright by sheer force of will. Then her mouth left him to find Alec, then Michael. She sucked and licked all three as if pleasuring them this way was the most important thing in her world, a direct contradiction to her words. Yet she continued.
Vic didn't care if it was a dream, or some kind of spirit walk like the Comanche often participated in. The only thing that mattered was her mouth around his dick.
Just as Vic was certain he'd reached the end of his endurance and would explode in the most intense orgasm imaginable, the world dimmed around him and the woman became as insubstantial as the mists surrounding her. "You will find me in the compound on the Eastern end of the Badlands next to the sea. Come by tomorrow night, or don't come at all." Everything brightened as if a light shone directly into his face, and Vic raised a hand to shield his eyes...
