Contains books one, two, and three of the Star Lawyers series, an action-packed deep space adventure filled with humor, romance, and adventure. Jump Gate Omega, Book 1
Without Jump Gate Omega, the Terran Commonwealth may not survive. If the new Matthews Corporation Jump Gate fails to span 2.5 million light years to the Andromeda galaxy, the heavily invested star-faring civilization of the Milky Way will face economic ruin and brutal war. The Star Lawyers must run a gauntlet to the Rim, dodging pirates, politicians, prelates, and predatory star nations intent on seizing the new Gate to Andromeda. 
Forbidden Sanctuary, Book 2 
What terrible secrets will Tyler Matthews and his star lawyers discover within the forbidden sanctuary on the mysterious, sacred planet Adao-2? Can the legal team from Matthews Interstellar Industries learn the truth in time to save M-double-I’s century-long quest to open Jump Gate Omega, bridge the 2.5 million light-years to the Andromeda galaxy, and prevent economic ruin and war in the Milky Way? 
While Tyler, J. B., Rosalie, and Lucy (her shapeshifter cat) battle pirates and religious fanatics, Suzie and her holographic AI colleagues—former ladies of the night, repurposed as legal assistants and starship crew—face an even deadlier foe. This unknown enemy threatens to delete all the starship Patrick Henry‘s programs and terminate their existence forever. To make matters worse, Cousin Esteban languishes in prison on Suryadivan Prime, where the former Catholic monk faces a death sentence for crimes he did not commit. 
The Blue King Murders, Book 3 
Some places, it’s a crime to be human….Tyler Matthews divides the legal team in half to wage courtroom battles on worlds half a galaxy apart. The Star Lawyers must defend Mr. Blue, their Quirt-Thymean friend and fellow attorney, for the murder of his king. But defending a regicide carries a penalty of death—for his lawyer! 
Meanwhile, J. B., Rosalie, and Suzie fly to a Mek colonial world to defend their mischievous Uncle Charlie, who’s charged with seduction and sedition among the matriarchal Meklavites. With Tyler’s penchant for attracting enemies, he’s soon dodging killer robots, fending off insurrectionists, and evading professional assassins, while J. B.’s team fights to escape the clutches of binary black holes that were not supposed to be in their flight path. 
Add to the mix a pair of beautiful, seductive alien queens with pheromonic powers and a conspiracy at the highest level of Quirt-Thymean society to launch wars of conquest like the old days of the empire.
