Intergalactic mercenary Kat Darah has been ordered to keep her shape-shifting ability a secret from everyone but those closest to her, for her own safety. She’s learned how to control the feral rage…for the most part. But when Lieutenant Rygard’s military unit goes missing, she’ll use every skill she has to find her man.
Lt. Christopher Rygard has witnessed his girl shift, and he still wants her. After Kat rescues him from alien clutches, he’d like nothing more than to wrap her in his arms again, but his first duty is to his men. And half of them have been shipped off-planet to be sold as slaves.
Kat and Rygard will need to form a new team to go deep undercover, posing as gladiators and learning to fight together in order to survive. In the arena, it’s all about who is the strongest predator…
See how it all began in Hunting Kat.

On Love Triangles...and Why There Isn't One
One of the first things I was asked when I turned in Fighting Kat was whether Bharguest was intended to be a love interest for Kaitlyn.
Bharguest has a very important role to play, but not as a lover. Actually *shudder*Bharguest as a lover is kind of creepy. Also likely to have a low chance of survival attached to it.
To be honest, I'm not big into love triangles. They happen in real life, no doubt about it. And they are an agonizing conflict. But writing one into a story isn't something I've been able to do without having it come out as contrived or predictable. I haven't as yet managed to write one well.
Perhaps it's because I'd want to make all the points of the triangle equally strong characters, people my readers would fall in love with. And if I succeeded, wouldn't a good portion of my readers be heart broken when two ended up together and one was left out? I'd be heartbroken for sure. And that wasn't where I wanted to go with Fighting Kat.
So no love triangle. At least not yet. And I haven't decided if there will be one in the future of the Triton Experiment series. But...Kaitlyn and Rygard have enough challenges to face already. I'm not convinced a love triangle has to be one of them.
