Hunted and on the run, galactic smuggler Angel Torrence stole a ship to escape capture,
not realizing until too late that the ship’s computer, not she, was in control. With its
disembodied voice, arrogant, bossy and sounding very male, it blared out of the Icarus’
control panel, not to thank her for rescuing him and his ship from the terrorist attack, but
to instruct her to set a course for the most perilous planet in the known universe.
On the riskiest mission of his career, Colonel Nicoli Romanof had allowed his life essence
and his physical form to be separated. And the Harvesters had taken the bait; his body.
Now he needed the cocky pilot who’d stolen his vessel to help him retrieve his person and
destroy the deadly race of aliens. Then he discovered the young pilot was a woman and he
kissed his chances of success goodbye.
When Nicoli refused her assistance because of her gender, Angel would have moved
heaven and earth to prove she was up to the task. But she never expected the colonel’s
physique to be so magnificent or his heart to be so courageous. When a passion she
couldn’t deny flared between them, she wondered if they’d found love or flown…Too
Close to the Sun
Adrian Sun is an emotionally hardened galactic bounty hunter hired by Phoenix Eemin, a
Xenobian priestess, to rescue her father from a mysterious crime lord holding him hostage.
Because the Fourth Quadrant is no place for a woman - especially an empath - Adrian
and his partner, Jack Jones, head out on the rescue mission alone.
Phoenix, who is only pretending to be an empath, is easy prey to the criminals she
encounters after Adrian abandons her. Too soon, she's being held prisoner in the cloud
city of Heaven and forced to use her "empath" skills in order to stay alive.
When Adrian learns what happened to Phoenix, he can ill afford the time and trouble it
will take to rescue her, but there is something about the beautiful empath that arouses his
protective instincts and causes even his deadened heart to beat faster.
Then they learn that Phoenix's father is being held on the same planet where Adrian was
once held prisoner - and by the same sadistic madman. Adrian barely escaped once with
his life and his sanity. He's not sure he can do it again - even for the woman he loves.
But Phoenix is determined to go with or without him and he'll be damned if he lets her
walk into hell alone.
Jack Jones bears the mark of God's Tear- a bloodstone tear drop below his eye - given
to those Demon Wraith gang members who have endured something so by criminals
and government agents alike, he’s been in hiding for the last five years, but when word
reaches him that his young friend, Alexis Romanof, is missing,he's willing to risk his
own life to find her.
Alexis Romanof isn’t sixteen anymore. She's fully capable of taking care of herself and
she's made it her mission to discover who's behind the accidents plaguing her family's
tyrillium export business. When she finds them, she intends to bring them to justice.
She doesn't mind if Jack wants to tag along. After all, she’s been in love with him
since that first moment she saw him five years ago. And now that he's back in her life,
she's not letting him go a second time - at least not until he recognizes she's a grown
For her plan to work, though, they'll have to survive smuggler assassination attempts
and clear Jack's name with the government. And then there's her brother - Nicoli
Romanof - who's not too fond of his baby sister getting involved with a Demon Wraith.
