Start with a Beauty and the Beast theme . . . with a few overtones of The King and I.
Blend in a science fiction romance set on a fiery desert planet; with a barbaric, primitive hero who’s not quite . . . human.
Add a fragile but strong-willed heroine, a forced marriage of convenience, a sizzling sexual attraction, and . . . well, you’ll have to read Shadow Fires to find out what happens!
Science Fiction Romance, RITA Finalist
Jenna dan Aron, a Shielder, lives a solitary existence, shunned by her people because she has visions and can see the future. She’s even foreseen her own destiny: to be a human offering, a mate for a savage Leor warlord. When two Shielder colonies need to be rescued, the Leors who are their only hope demand a bride for their leader in return. Knowing she can’t deny fate, Jenna steps forward.
The Leors are a hybrid race and only part human. Arion of Saura finds mating outside his race abhorrent, but he has no choice, as his kind faces extinction. His life is ruled by hard logic and physical prowess, with no room for softness or emotion. Bound to him, Jenna faces a life of barbarism with a mate who seems more beast than man. In the relentless heat of the wild Sauran desert, Jenna and Arion wage a battle of wills, until they discover that the heart is mightier than any weapon—and that love can forge shadow and fire together.
