Break Out

Book 1, Dark Desires

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The year is 3048, Earth is no longer habitable, and man has fled to the stars where they've discovered the secret of immortality-Meridian. Unfortunately, the radioactive mineral is exorbitantly expensive and only available to a select few. A new class comprised of the super rich and immortal soon evolves. The Collective, as they're called, rule the universe.

Two-thousand-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, vampire and rogue pilot of the space cruiser, El Cazador, can't resist two things: gorgeous women and impossible jobs. When beautiful Skylar Rossaria approaches him to break a prisoner out of the Collective's maximum security prison on Trakis One, Rico jumps at the chance. Being hunted by the Collective has never been so dangerous-or so fun!

Each book in the Dark Desires series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 18, 2014 – Croft's first Dark Desires adventure, a rambunctious space opera, is a lighthearted whimsical tale with a motley cast of renegade characters on a mission impossible. Skylar Rossaria, a no-nonsense soldier in the elite army of the Collective, disguises herself and offers both erotic and financial rewards to vampire Ricardo "Rico" Sanchez, roguish owner of the pirate space cruiser El Cazador, if he agrees to break her brother out of prison. Once he accepts, Skylar tries to hold off Rico's advances, afraid that her identity and true mission will be revealed, but her stoic armor begins to crack. Their tantalizing mutual attraction highlights the rigidity of her military life and makes her long for something more. Mystified and suspicious, Rico plays along until he can get a taste of Skylar's blood and learn what she's hiding. While Skylar lacks in personality, the secondary characters entice readers with camaraderie and secrecy. The blend of action, treachery, romance, and startling revelation will leave the reader anxious for the next entertaining adventure.
