On the verge of freeing his brother from a cruel master, Senth, an all party-fun-and-games thief, must take on the hardest assignment of his life: stealing from the Empress.

To make matters worse, he has no choice about working with a by-the-book rebel captain, a genetically advanced woman whose addictive pheromones could enhance his mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

When the unthinkable happens and the Empress kidnaps his brother, Senth must put aside his love of play and buckle down or his brother will end up with a far worse master, Senth will be guilty of treason, and he'll lose the love of his life -- forever.

The Antonello Brothers

Two tough brothers. That is a great description of Senth and Khyff Antonello. At the beginning of their saga, both are slaves, and as they work for their freedom, they find love. Or does love find them?

In At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, professional thief Senth Antonello must retrieve a device stolen by the Imperial Armada, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender it. His new partner, NarrAy Jorlan, is a genetically enhanced woman who could enhance the mission, or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss. He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

In For Women Only, Ambassador Mehfawni Ruh discovers the terrible secret Khyff hides. It could destroy her people and prevent her from leading them. She should shun the human, but how can she leave Khyff to suffer in the darkness that binds his heart? His secret truth is her people’s darkest lie.

Meet Senth and his big brother Khyff in At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, and For Women Only. Round out the fun with secrets of the shadowy Thieves’ Guild (of which Senth is a premier member) in the Thieves’ Guild Handbook. This scifi romance boxed set is sweet romance with a kick.

Excerpt At the Mercy of Her Pleasure (Senth’s story)

In this scene, Senth and NarrAy have just met. She’s considering whether to hire him to help her steal back the designs for a prototype her murdered parents designed. Because she’s a Better, an altered human with addictive pheromones, she’s not permitted to touch anyone skin-to-skin.

NarrAy offered her hand. She’d practiced this with her father as a girl. “A gentleman doesn’t try to overpower a lady’s hand, NarrAy. But he isn’t afraid to be firm either.”

She held his gloved hand between both of hers. “I can see you’re a gentleman, Mr. Antonello.”

His cheeks reddened. “Just Senth, ma’am.”

She squeezed Senth’s hand. “And I’m NarrAy. Never Ms. Jorlan, nor ma’am. Not on this job. Understood?”

He met her gaze. “Does that mean you want me?” He blushed again and glanced down at their still-joined hands. “For the job, I mean.”

She bit back a laugh. What an innocent. “So long as we’re clear on who’s in charge.”

“When it comes to theft, I am. For everything else, you are, in every way.”

You have no idea. She grinned at him. He had never once tried to look at her body. Maybe this dress will be okay after all.

“Come sit.” She gestured toward an adjacent room. “Let’s talk business.”

At the Mercy of Her Pleasure
Hired to steal back a prototype taken by the imperial armada, Senth Antonello retrieves it, but his brother is kidnapped to force Senth to surrender the device. Now he has to rescue his brother, outsmart the armada, and keep the item out of imperial hands. All doable, except for one small problem. He must do it in the company of NarrAy Jorlan, a genetically altered woman whose pheromones could enhance the mission or crumble it into dust with a single siren kiss.

He’s a thief. She’s a soldier. Do opposites attract? Oh, mercy!

Excerpt For Women Only (Khyff’s story)

In this scene, Khyff has just walked in the door after a month away working. Like many of us, he finds using tech a tough stretch, so when idBot, his electronic security system, greets him, humor ensues.

“Welcome home, Mr. Antonello.”

Khyffen Antonello flinched at the disembodied android voice. He let out a frustrated sigh. “I am never going to get used to that. IdBot?”

The home security system pinged in response.

“Didn’t I ask you to call me Khyff?”

“Yes, Mr. Antonello. Would you like to know the dates of your requests at this time?”

“No, I would not. Just change the greeting. Call me Khyff.”

“Yes, Mr. Antonello. Greetings and welcome protocols are found in the home security system settings in the main system. Would you like to adjust them at this time?”

“No.” His shoulders sagged. “Remind me later. I’ve been away for a month, okay? I’m a little tired.”

“Yes, Mr. Antonello. A reminder has been scheduled.” Locks activated with an audible click, and a slight increase in pressure on his ears told Khyff the flat had been sealed. “Premises secure.”

Khyff dropped his travel bag. The long commute had left him stiff, and he rolled his shoulders. In the living area, he swiped two fingers across a table and frowned at the dust. The cleaning droids had been skimping again. Not every machine was as efficient as idBot.

“Might be a good thing.” Khyff stretched, working out kinks. “IdBot, play music.” The blare of hard rock made Khyff jump. He clamped both hands over his ears. Drums thundered and boomed behind a wailing voice he’d heard on tour every day for the past month as security liaison for Wind and Thunder. “End music.”

The silence made him groan with pleasure. “That’s better.” He lowered his hands. “IdBot, how did that music get on my setup?”

“Music added by roommate Senth Antonello.”

“My brother is back.”


That meant trouble.

‘You could’ve warned me my brother was home when I got in the door.”

“Yes, Mr. Antonello. Greetings and welcome protocols are found in the home security system set–”

“Never mind.” Khyff rubbed his temples.

For Women Only
When Fawni Ruh, a Kin ambassador, visits the capitol planet of the empire, she meets security expert Khyff Antonello, a human. A death in her family forces Fawni to return home, but she can’t bear to part with Khyff, and takes him along. Her family demands she cast out the human, or abdicate her future rule.
Fawni searches for an alternative, and stumbles upon Khyff’s secret. The cover-up, if exposed, will betray her world to its enemies, and bare her family to open shame. Her duty is clear. Yet how can she leave Khyff to suffer in the darkness that binds his heart?
His secret truth is her people’s darkest lie.

Three Things About Nathan Mutch

Please tell us three things you'd like us to know.


It seems like forever ago that I decided I was going to write a novel. It also seems like it was only yesterday. That's how life works sometimes.

I was willing to give it a shot. I'd write on Tuesdays and Thursdays to begin with. I didn't know what I was doing—I'd written short pieces before, but never a full-length novel. The project gathered steam with every writing session, and before I knew it, I had a book. The Unity was published, and I immediately began work on the second book. I built the universe for my characters while I was also building a family.


It wasn't until I wrote The Spike that I truly appreciated universe building in fiction.

A character is born.

The universe is born.

The universe is broken down and reordered to suit the character.

Few things survive the reordering of the universe, so the character is reborn.

Repeat as needed.

It seems like only yesterday that I decided to write books and, in doing so, reordered my own universe.

I'm glad I survived.


The Spike is a story about the human mind. It's about the lengths a person will go to uncover the truth, but more so, it's about the addictive quality of that search.

Ultimately, we can never know why we decide against one thing in favor of another.

Is it desire or attraction?

Is it a chemically predetermined path in our synapses?

The truth beckons to us. It invigorates like the thrill of mortal danger.

The truth is a drug.

The Spike by Nathan Mutch

Here's an excerpt from The Spike:

"This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be Medicine Hat."

–Rudyard Kipling

"We were born to die."

John McCormack knew a thing or two about death. He also knew a thing or two about when to keep his mouth shut. We were born to die—those were the words he spoke aloud just after closing the door to his last session with the military-appointed psychologist.

John recalled what the psychologist had said during their first session—that survivor's guilt was a natural consequence, especially since he alone had survived. No one could have foreseen that their brief exposure to the crashed alien ship would be fatal—that their hazmat suits would offer no protection.

"We were born to live our lives," the shrink had said. "The other Marines lived to serve. They died performing their duty."

John shambled away from the stuffy, claustrophobic office and stayed close to the corridor wall as if he might suddenly need it to steady himself. The faces of the fallen haunted him.

John spoke the words again. He spoke as if talking to his ghosts would somehow make them sympathetic.

"We were all born to die."

A strange but familiar voice rose up from his chaotic thoughts. It was so clear that it drowned out the memories, yet the voice itself was like a memory. As odd as it seemed to have a voice in his head that John felt didn't belong to him, what happened next was stranger still. His mind made the words his own.

"You are wrong, John. You were born for a specific purpose."

John nearly turned around and marched back into the psychologist's office. He was sure he had cracked, but the thought of dealing with a headshrinker again was a great weight pressing on his chest. He kept walking and took his ghosts with him.


Soon after John was granted separation from the Marine Corps, he found work at an off-world mining operation with the same company that had shot down the alien spaceship—an irony few of his fellow miners failed to point out. But John didn't require reminders. He remembered perfectly.

The alien ship had entered Earth's orbit undetected by every space observation network on the planet. GISEC, the Goryeo Inter-Korean Space Exploration Conglomerate, detected the ship with an automated orbital salvage and reclamation platform and mistook it for space junk. The AI on the platform decided the ship was a danger to nearby satellites and attempted to disintegrate it. If it wasn't for GISEC, the ship might have come and gone unnoticed.

Of all the places in the world, the falling ship's trajectory sent it hurtling toward downtown Medicine Hat. In the blink of an eye, the city was leveled. The city that was built on a giant gas field—the city with hell for a basement—was destroyed by a fireball from the heavens.

When John McCormack emerges from the alien wreckage, only he knows what he leaves behind—and what he has brought with him.
