Romance / Fantasy / Science Fiction

Science Fiction Romance from RITA nominated author! Injured in a bar fight and then stranded on a hellhole planet when her ship is stolen, smuggler Moriah Cameron finds herself at the mercy of arrogant Sabin Travers. She manages to elude him, but quickly realizes she has no good option to get off Calt, so she stows away on Sabin’s ship. Sabin discovers her just as she stumbles upon a secret that could affect hundreds of lives—a hidden Shielder colony. Forced to take Moriah captive to protect that secret, he decides to take her to Elysia to have her memory altered. Instead of being grateful that he didn’t shut her up permanently, Moriah is infuriated about being delayed from picking up a crucial shipment. In return, Sabin resents the disruption this defiant and ungrateful woman creates in his life. Having a strong aversion to domineering men like Sabin, Moriah manages to steal his ship and escape—after dumping him, drugged and naked, at a Pleasure Dome. Her freedom is short lived when Sabin catches up with her. He finds a way to make her pay, and she has no choice but to go along. As they battle wills and wits across the quadrant, Moriah is shocked by her growing attraction to Sabin. But when she discovers he is also a shadower, all bets are off. She eludes him once more and heads to a dangerous but lucrative delivery. Things go wrong at the drop, and only Sabin’s major sacrifice can save her. But ultimately, it’s love, acceptance, and healing that save them both. From the AuthorNumerous readers have asked about a follow-up to my debut book, Shielder, and I was thrilled by so much interest. I'm delighted to be able to honor those requests. Shadower is actually the prequel to Shielder, however each book stands alone, and can be read in any order. When Sabin and Moriah appeared as secondary characters in Shielder, they sparked the moment they met. I knew I was going to have to give them their own story. Shadower is an exciting and sensual galactic adventure, with these two at odds from the very beginning. When bounty hunter Sabin Travers comes to Moriah Cameron's rescue in a bar fight on a hellhole planet, he has no idea she's a smuggler dealing in illegal goods. All he knows is that she turns his universe upside down, drugs him, and steals his ship. Yet, despite her treachery, all he can think about is her seductive wiles. Moriah never suspects the handsome stranger is the one thing she hates most: a shadower. But she recognizes! the threat Sabin poses to her, with his charming wit and dark good looks. The attraction she feels for him is far more terrifying than being arrested and imprisoned. For she hides a secret far darker than her unlawful activities . . . . I hope you'll come along on the adventure. You can re-visit some of the familiar characters from Shielder, and meet new ones. Book three of the series, Shamara, will be available in fall 2001.
