Publisher's Summary

From the dangerous desert sands to the deadly glitz of the city, the lawless desert planet of Carthago is filled with lethal hunters risking it all for the women who capture their hearts. Hunter contains two novellas and one short story all set in the Galactic Gladiators series.

Desert Hunter

Desert hunter Bren will do whatever it takes to protect the smart, beautiful Mersi from his darkest secrets. Born, raised, and sold into servitude on the desert world of Carthago, Mersi Kassar has finally found her freedom and her place on the Corsair Caravan, leading travelers from the gladiator city of Kor Magna through the desert. She also works side by side with her friend - the big, silent Bren - a man she’s desperately in love with. But stubborn Bren shuts down her every attempt to deepen the feelings they have for each other, and Mersi isn’t sure she can take the pain anymore.

 Bren Hahn hides a terrifying darkness within, and will protect the few people he cares about. That includes Mersi - a woman who sparks a simmering passion he finds harder and harder to ignore. On a perilous journey in the heart of the desert, Mersi and Bren rescue a strange alien creature. Working together to heal the big, shaggy canine, their smoldering desire ignites, but their feelings turn out to be the least of their concerns. A deadly enemy is hunting their new pet. An enemy that threatens Bren’s darkest secret and all they hold dear.

Please note: This was previously released as part of the 2018 Pets in Space Anthology.

Alien Hunter

The head of security Tannon Gi lets no one get close until a feisty cocktail waitress explodes into his orderly life. Mina Lan’Gar left the desert for a new life in the glitzy heart of Kor Magna known as the District. As a brand-new cocktail waitress at the hottest casino, the Dark Nebula, she’s just trying to get ahead, but all she seems to do is lock horns with the casino’s taciturn head of security, Tannon Gi. The man’s hard body, neat suits, and serious face make her want to mess him up a bit. When she overhears people conspiring to strike a private gladiator party the casino is hosting, she knows she needs to help Tannon stop the attack.

Once a deadly alien hunter and assassin, Tannon finally left the life that was destroying him, one kill at a time, and made a life for himself at the Dark Nebula casino. Nothing and no one causes trouble on his watch, and that includes the mysterious woman from the desert who stirs feelings in him that he’s never felt before. When he and Mina find themselves swept up in a fierce passion and a deadly plot, they will soon learn that nothing is quite what it seems.

Please note: This is a brand-new, never-before-published story.

A Galactic Gladiators Christmas

Mistletoe, Santa Claus, and eggnog. Cyborg imperator Magnus Rone finds himself in the middle of party filled with rescued humans from Earth, gladiators, cyborgs, and children, trying to understand the strange traditions of Christmas.

Please note: This story is available as a free read in the author's website.

two in one

I loved this book! We get to see more of the corsair caravan, more of the desert, and the Dark Nebula casino too. I love that in all cases, we still have the story developed so that we care for the characters' HEA, and the continuation of the series. Always a wonderful read.

Link to the next Galdiator series

Another great read by Anna Hackett with spot on narration by Vivienne Leheny. Hunter: A Scifi Alien Romance (Galactic Gladiators Book 12) contains three tales from the Galactic Gladiators series - one previously released in Embrace the Passion: Pets in Space 3 and one a free short story from the author's web site. If you were lucky enough to buy the first and read the second, there is a third offering that is brand new. The third novella takes place at the Dark Nebula and centers around Tannon Gi the head of security. As a group, they are a stepping stone to the next GG series, House of Rone. Enjoy!

Fantastic story and A+ narration

Anna Hackett and Vivienne Leheny make an unbeatable duo in this 3 story novella collection. Hackett's writing is always entertaining with fast-paced action, deep characters and a HEA. To date, Leheny is my favorite narrator. she brings so much emotion alive in the story and has so many different voices. I'd give 10 stars for this audible book if possible!

Really Good

Hunter the 12th Galactic Gladiators is a collection of two novellas and one short story. The first novella is about Bren Hahn a desert hunter who hides a terrifying darkness within, and will protect the few people he cares about and Mersi Kassar who was born, raised, and sold into servitude on the desert world of Carthago. Mersi escaped her servitude and was saved by by Corsair and Bren years ago. She is also in love with Bren but the stubborn man doesn't want to go there with her fearing hurting her with his darkness and in doing so nearly loses everyhting. Then the short story is about a Gladiator Christmas in which the rescued Earth survivors introduce the Gladiators and their allies to the Earth tradition of Christmas. An interesting and humurous tale in the series. The second novella is about Mina Lan’Gar and Tannon. Tannon is the head of security at the Dark Nebula Casino and Mina is a new watiress there. Nothing it what is seems with these two, they both have something going on with them but the pull between the two is undeniable and when they get cloes the sparks fly. Another excellent edition full of action, humour and steamy romance that I thoroughly enjoyed.
