At the author's request, this ebook is available only at Amazon.

Colonel Czerinski still has his hands full, trying to keep the drug trade and the Arthropodan spider commander under control on planet New Colorado after Major Manny Lopez used the time machine to bring two grade-A cookers from the past to concoct a special recipe of blue powder. Now a Polish cartel is going strong and making trouble. With Legion enlistments down, the draft is reinstituted, and Czerinski plucks likely victims from every quarter and lands in more trouble with more bad press. Can he keep it together long enough to make another successful wager on football, this time a game between guards and prisoners at the local jail? Familiar faces make an appearance, plus new ones - including a talking groundhog. The drug war draws to a close and Czerinski contemplates retirement from the Legion, but he's in for the duration as the laughs continue.

Rusty Scanlon, owner of a trendy boutique in the outskirts of New York City, Rusty has an eye for fashion and a gift for messing up her love life. She doesn’t trust men because they’ve all abandoned her – including her father, who ran out on her when she was only six years old. But when she meets Walter Margolis, she thinks she's found Mr. Right - until she tells him she’s pregnant. When a con man mentions knowing her father, she decides to find out the truth and find her father. Until she does, she can't commit to a life with Walter. Along the way, she and those around her learn about losing love and finding it, and what it means to be a family.
