Capital Games | The Audacity Saga: Book 2
A NEW, MORE CIVILIZED MISSION
Two months have passed since Commander Ellen Ryu did the impossible and rescued mercenary Kael Sidassian—along with his mysterious cargo. Now the crew of Audacity is stronger than ever, protecting the galaxy against the abuse of technology. But after the team botches a simple humanitarian aid mission, Ryu and Kael find themselves on Capital, a neutral planet full of high fashion, decadent pleasures, and dark secrets.
Foundation scientist Chayana Persad has new tech that could help defend against Ryu’s oldest enemy. But local telepaths have been vanishing, and Persad’s son is missing—and somehow at the center of these crimes. As the crew searches for answers, they’ll have to dodge Capital’s corrupt police, allies with hidden agendas, and a traitor aboard Audacity itself. Enemies will strike, guns will fail, and the team will face some tough choices.
Can Kael, Ellen, and the crew pull closer together… or will this decadent planet rip them forever apart?
For lovers of romantic space opera, Lois McMaster Bujold, and David Weber, CAPITAL GAMES is the second volume in the Audacity series. It’s got action, adventure, and at least one pair of killer high heels.
Available shortly in ebook and paperback.

Snippets from Capital Games
Loud speakers blared at them above huge industrial filters three stories high. “Welcome to Capital! The air quality today is level turquoise, or excellent. No contaminants, viruses, or other foreign agents are detected. Pollen management is active. Filters are active. Remember, Capital air is extremely safe to breathe. Breathers are not necessary. Genoterrorists will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Welcome to Capital! The air quality today is turquoise…”
Adan shook his head. “Persad’s clean. Real law enforcement wouldn’t come through windows. Unless they do things differently here?” He raised his eyebrows. “Most civilized places, they show up at the door with papers. Uncivilized places, they show up at the door with guns.”
“Windows are only on Capital?” Jenny smiled. “We are special here. In a bad way.”
