“A fun, erotic romp through a future sci/fi world of bounty hunters, pirates, and mercenaries.” —Goodreads
Solae O’bora is an interstellar bounty hunter who prides herself on always working alone. But when her most recent job presents a challenge she’s never encountered, she realizes she’s going to need the help of the one man she’s always spurned, Raav Asirian—a powerfully handsome mercenary who exudes dominant sexuality and threatens to take from Solae the one thing she values most, her control. Raav is willing to do the job, but it comes at a high price: she’ll have to go to bed with him, his way, to get his help.
Forced to choose between failing at her mission and surrendering to a man she fears will consume her completely, Solae reluctantly agrees to submit to Raav’s every demand, and soon the two are engulfed by a fiery passion. And as they give themselves over fully to a frenzied desire more intense than either of them ever dreamed of, they’ll come to realize the erotic possibilities binding them are as vast and infinite as space.
This book was previously published as Across the Stars.
“A fun, exciting, touching, and erotic story!” —Goodreads
Ilara Depherra grew up on the streets of Toru City, the victim of a corrupt child welfare system that did little to protect the children in its care. Now tending to the children of the dark city herself, Ilara teaches them the skills they’ll need to survive and hides them from the vile men who would enslave them. But when she’s targeted by a crooked official who will stop at nothing to control her, she’ll need the protection of a man who stirs her heart like no one has before.
Kei Rewu is an arena gladiator of intergalactic renown, but he’s been burned by unfaithful lovers too many times and has sworn off relationships for good. When Ilara turns to him for help and ignites a passion he’d all but given up on, he’s forced to confront his fear and betray the system that has made him a star. Surrendering to the undeniable sensual attraction that sears them both, Kei and Illara will have to risk everything they hold dear to find a love that will save them both.
This is a fully revised edition of a book originally published as The Gladiator and the Thief.
About the Author:
I was born in Melbourne, Florida when it was still a tiny little town, and I was pretty much raised at the beach. At a fairly young age, my father moved us to Summerville, South Carolina. He chose South Carolina because Northrup Aviation wanted to transfer him to California, where he figured his three daughters would wind up getting into trouble. As luck would have it, I grew up to be a hippie anyway! At 16 years old, I ran away from home to go to Woodstock. I wish I could say I made it, but I got caught before I ever got out of South Carolina.
I’ve been married twice – unsuccessfully both times – but the second one netted me a beautiful daughter who is nearly 23 years old. I’m happily divorced with no plans of changing my marital status.
I have a B.A. in Forensic Psychology and have been doing social work for a number of years. I’ve worked in Addictions, Community Mental Health, Corrections, and most recently, Child Welfare. Having seen the best and worst in people, I pretty much keep to myself now. My daughter worries about the lack of a man in my life but I tell her I write my own men now and the fantasy is better than the reality.
I’ve been writing since my early twenties but never thought about trying to get published until I met my pal, Sheri Livingston, in a Yahoo group. I have several e-books published and several works in progress on my desktop. I have so many stories in my head that sometimes I feel a little schizophrenic. But then, I’m a psychiatric social worker, so I can treat myself!
