Back cover blurb:
Cat Kincaid is obsessed with killing the man she believes is responsible for the torture and death of her sister, but when she eventually catches up with him, survival becomes a greater priority than revenge. Kerry Marchant, haunted by memories, regret and self-blame, shields himself from the pain of the past by committing himself totally to the starship, Destiny, of which he is part owner. However, the beautiful, red haired woman who reminds him of his lost love, and who he suspects is working for a corrupt regime, represents a possible threat not only to the ship, but to his heart. Marooned on an inhospitable planet, they need to work together to stay alive, fighting not only unknown assailants, but their growing attraction. But how can they learn to trust each other when he has vowed never to get close to a woman again, and she made a solemn pledge to destroy him?
"It was really a work of art...How the imaginative stage was set just so, how the story board was kept on simmer, and how the characters were defined (mainly the fiesty red-haired Cat & the capable and handsome Kerry). It was all so magnetic. The characters were like would-be friends that I admire...
...Within is a message that each human being might aspire to live life as a rep for humanity on earth! Pertinent issues of Earth are here entwined with a love story really "out there"! This book stays with me!"
From the opening page to the last this action-packed sci-fi tale Is a cargo hold filled to the brim with suspense, mystery, and heat.
Carol Conley (In D'Tale)
"If you love science fiction or If you love a good action book with some romance, I definitely recommend you read beloved Enemy and this series. I am looking forward to reading more by this author."

When Jestine Darnell is rescued from her sabotaged starship
by the crew of the Destiny her only objective is to complete her mission and
keep her promise to save a world from slavery.
Love is the last thing on her mind.
However, she has not counted on losing her heart to Kerry Marchant the ship’s second in command, who makes his
distrust of her painfully obvious, despite the chemistry between them. The completion of her mission has
consequences that neither of them could have foreseen.
Enter Dahll Tarron, who becomes involved in a long and
dangerous quest to find the Destiny. Fates become intertwined, perils shared,
culminating in the realization that sometimes love may be so close that there
is a danger it will not be recognized until it is too late…
"The lovely, lovely descriptions never slow the action, but manage still to convey emotion and carry the narration forward. This is an incredibly original tale, and for all the science fiction trappings is truly a classic quest for love, and the romance, which at first seems very much at the periphery, will become not only a primary motivation, but the chief joy of the tale. Adventure may be the main motif, but the heartwarming side will be a surprising bonus."

Two minds united against a common foe. Two hearts afraid to show their love: Long ago Tamarith fell in love with a man she can never have, and is convinced she will never love another. However, she cannot help but be intrigued by a handsome stranger whose psychic powers exceed even her own.
Vidarh seeks only to find his true purpose in life and to win the regard of his father, who eschews his son’s psychic abilities. Thrown together by a common threat to their planet, then torn apart by an evil greater than any they could have imagined, can Vidarh save the lovely Nifl woman who has captivated him, before it is too late? Will Tamarith and Vidarh overcome the deadly enemy who threatens to destroy all they know and love? Will they find the happiness they both seek? Or are they fated to live their lives alone?
LASR 'Best Book' Review
"This book is wonderful! There are few books that hold my interest to the point where I can't bear to put it down, but Children of the Mist is most certainly at the top of this list. The attraction between Tamarith and Vidarh is beautifully written. The involvement of telepathy would appear to make it easier for them to share their feelings, but this isn't the case. If anything telepathy makes it harder as they hide their minds from one another. This puts their lives in danger more than once..."
