Meet Judith Rook. An author, a blogger and a book reviewer. Judith writes and publishes Science fiction. She has created a series called Circe, consisting (for now) of two books, Planet Woman and Man of Two Planets. And this is SciFi like you’ve never read before. Imagine a planet that can think.
Circe can think, and the humans who live with her are slightly different from the humans on other planets. However, they keep themselves to themselves and do not make contact with non-thinking planets. But now Circe is reaching out to First Home, the strongest world of the solar system, because she has sensed a great danger approaching from far off in the galaxy, and she is making plans to deal with it.
Tethyn must escort the envoy and his entourage on an expedition to her hidden family home where he will encounter the planet herself, see some of her powers and learn about her past. The envoy is deeply affected by the experience. During the excursion Tethyn admits to herself that she has come to love Lewis although in return she cannot hope for anything other than his desire. But desire is not enough, and when Lewis wants to take Tethyn to First Home, she refuses him.
Then personal danger for Lewis arrives. An enemy has followed him from First Home, and lives begin to alter.
MAN OF TWO PLANETS
Borto Claibrook-Merjolaine, born and raised on Circe, the planet with a mind, is the only man of his generation to become a warrior. As he learns combat skills on the neighbouring planet of First Home his mentor, Hal, detects a dark creature hidden deep inside Borto’s personality. Coming from Circe’s own shadow, the being adds extra strength to Borto’s normal Circean abilities.
Also living on First Home, Borto’s sister, Tethyn, realises that she must go to find the source of a great danger which is threatening both Circe and First Home. Another planet farther away in the galaxy has learned about First Home and is preparing an invasion force.

THREE WAYS OF DESIRE
On a world controlled by élite military and merchant families, Yolande is due to be sold to the highest bidder. Against all custom, however, her strange and remote guardian, Morrain, decides that she will belong only to him and his best friend, Hagen, although if his plans are discovered, it will mean the end of his family’s wealth and influence.
Morrain forbids Yolande to have contact with other men, apart from Hagen, and begins to take her, unwillingly at first, through a series of sexual adventures. He binds her emotionally to him and marks her as his possession. Yolande begins to respond to and care for the man who treats her with both hard passion and gentle tenderness.
But Yolande will only be safe from the other families when she is married, and although Morrain cannot be his ward’s husband, Hagen agrees to marry her and share her with her guardian.
Yolande comes to equally love the two men who now dominate her life. Although intriguing sensuality binds them together, Yolande finds fulfilment in the developing relationships, before being swept up in a rebellion and abducted.
Can Morrain and Hagen rescue the woman they both love and desire with equal passion, without revealing the extent of their mutual feelings for all to see?
