The Sword & the Starship : The Earth Colony Chronicles--Book One
Genetically engineered to blend with a sophisticated, aristocratic world, Valara F'al-ten awakens from her hibernetic sleep in an uncharted star system, orbiting a planet rich in resources Earth Colony 5 needs, but how does one negotiate inter-galactic trade agreements with a society that still wields swords? Clan High Chieftain, Gordain Ryn Phellan, has problems-an outlawed clan, a rival chieftain, and a despot with mind-control capabilities-even before he captures the bewitching female who claims to have a flying ship. That she could be kin to his greatest foe and, having been assembled rather than born, might well be soulless should repel him. It doesn't. Instead, he finds himself torn between his responsibility to the clans and his escalating desire for her. Despite unnerving physical and emotional changes, Lara needs to complete her mission, but Dain's enemies have other plans. Past and future collide as they work together to neutralize the threats, leaving Lara caught between duty and the yearning of her awakening heart.
