Rifted Hearts by M. A. Guglielmo

Riftworld ● Book 1


Welcome to Moon Star Ranch, Home to Monsters and Mustangs.

The Monster Apocalypse is old news, but Remi Gatti has a fresh take—travel tourism to monster portals. Too bad it’s only a cover for his real job as a half-human spy. When he’s sent to Moon Star Ranch to charm a veterinarian with ties to his crime family’s enemies, Remi’s sure this will be an easy seduce-and-run job. How hard can it be to ride a horse anyway?

Kaveh Salehi, a world expert on the medical treatment of alien species, has his own secrets. His friends at the ranch don’t know he’s part dragon and the alien entity known as the Matchmaker has chosen a human as his destined spouse. His clan wants the oblivious soulmate located and kept safe, whether that person wants to marry a monster or not. When Kaveh discovers Remi’s also not fully human, he asks for help—and Remi is more than up for the job. How hard can it be to fake date a sexy stranger anyway?

For once, Remi doesn’t want to lie to his mark.
For once, Kaveh doesn’t want to do the right thing.

How hard can it be not to fall in love with the wrong person?

Riftworld ● Book 0.5


Remi Gatti, a half-human con man with a psychic ability to manipulate sexual desire, has to steal a wedding present from a newlywed marine biologist—without the scientist’s sea-monster wife eating him first.

The job should be straightforward: board a tourist bus bound for Salem, seduce his mark, and make a clean get away with the gift—a powerful alien artifact Remi’s larcenous family wants for its own nefarious purposes.

But the unconventional married couple was brought together by the Matchmaker, an alien entity that can alter reality to further its matrimonial mission. Remi might not believe in true love, but his powers are useless against it. When the con goes bad, the usually amoral Remi struggles with a moral dilemma—help the couple and incur his family’s wrath, or try to outmatch the Matchmaker and face the consequences of defying love.
