Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: October 20th, 2020
YA Urban Fantasy, LGBT+, Sapphic Romance

Gemma’s a loner, but she’s got her twin brother Alex, so who really cares, right? When you’re a twin, you’re never alone.

Then, one day, she doesn’t have Alex anymore. Instead, she has a ghost named Eve and her brother’s dickhead friends for company—and one desperate plan.

They’re going to get Alex back.

It just means catching the Wild Hunt, convincing the fae to give them an Undying heart, and chasing down the elusive spirit of her dead brother first. Simple.

Falling in love with a ghost wasn’t in the plan. But sometimes you have to veer off track before you find what you’re searching for.

A haunting novel about grief, loss, and finding your way home.


The heavy sensation in Gemma’s gut twisted into sadness,  but like with most of what she felt since the other side took her heart, it was distant. Too far away to latch hold of, but too close for Gemma to ignore. “And are you enjoying it?”

A flash of a smile marked Eve’s face, and her gaze softened, the intensity in it fading to be replaced with an intensity of a different kind altogether—one that sent a bolt of something equally exhilarating and futile buzzing beneath Gemma’s skin.

“Against all odds, I think I am.” Eve ran her eyes down Gemma’s body, slow and deliberate. “But I’ll enjoy it even more if you tell me why you’re suddenly wearing those sexy gloves. Don’t get me wrong, I’m here for it, but what’s with the new aesthetic?”

Gemma’s chest tightened, and she glanced down at her hands, turning them this way and that. It wasn’t a secret; the others were bound to notice, eventually. But sharing the knowledge with someone felt reckless.

And yet she didn’t like the idea of being the only one holding it. She had never needed to keep a secret before; Alex knew all her secrets. And neither had she needed to share them. Telling him was like telling a mirror. There was something passive about it. Inevitable.

Inaction was Gemma’s island, and she wasn’t sure how to swim out to sea.

Slowly, carefully, she loosened each of the fingers on her left glove and held her hand out to Eve. Without breaking eye contact, Eve took the tip of the forefinger and drew the glove off.

The car door opened, making them both jump.

“Time to go?” Jason asked, staring at the two of them with an unreadable expression.

Gemma snatched the glove out of Eve’s hand and slid down the windscreen without looking back.

Spotlight: Kral, Mail Order Brides of Crakair #4 + Free Novella & Digital Swag

I have a confession. The Mars Needs Women trope is one I really shouldn’t enjoy. On paper, it’s a lot of things I don’t like. But I gotta admit, sometimes it just hits the spot. It’s this that first grabbed my attention about Ava Ross’ Mail Order Brides of Orakair series. Am I the only one?

Ava Ross
Mail Order Brides of Crakair, #4

Adult, SciFi Romance, Alien Romance


Publication Date
October 21, 2020

A stoic Vikir warrior meets his match in a spunky Earth woman determined to show him what he’s been missing.

After she’s kidnapped on her way to Crakair, Mila’s not sure she’ll ever meet her arranged mail-order alien match. Until Kral falls–literally–on top of her during his heroic rescue mission. Who wouldn’t be attracted to a gruff, scaly green alien doing all he can to save her from the bad guys? But with space stations and ships exploding around them, it soon becomes clear someone is determined to make sure she and Kral never reach Crakair.

Kral has settled into his role as Kral the enforcer and Kral the loner, the person he had to become after his father was killed and he was forced to assume leadership of his clan. He signs up for the Selection, never expecting to develop feelings for his Earthling female match. Despite the danger they’re in, she makes him laugh and shows him that life doesn’t always have to be serious. But with an enemy chasing them across the galaxy, Kral will have to tap his Vikir warrior skills to protect his Earthling bride.

Kral is the fourth novel in the Mail-Order Brides of Crakair series by sexy alien romance author Ava Ross. This standalone, full-length story has on-the-page heat, aliens who look and act alien, a guaranteed happily ever after, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.

AVA ROSS fell for men with unusual features when she first watched Star Wars, where alien creatures have gone mainstream. She lives in New England with her husband (who is sadly not an alien, though he is still cute in his own way), her kids, and assorted pets, including a yorkie pup and three cats.
