In search of a true and gentle love, fiery Shanelle Ly-San-Ter flees the lustful advances of the blue eyed barbarian who has been chosen as her lifemate – confused and frightened by the fevered yearnings the handsome brute has awakened in her innocent soul.
A warrior’s warrior, virile and magnificent Falon Van’yer is overwhelmed with intense desire for the spirited beauty who has vowed never to be his. And though the heavens themselves conspire against him, he will pursue his sensuous prize – and brave any peril to conquer and claim the keeper of his heart.
On the planet Kystran, year 2139, a place where technology rules with no room for passion, top-notch security guard Tedra De Arr is a force to be reckoned with. Statuesque, startlingly beautiful and the height of physical perfection, Tedra has never known a man’s touch — only because no man on her planet can vanquish her in battle — or in bed.
When the planet is taken over by an evil despot, Tedra manages to escape with her friend Martha — a wise-cracking computer. Together, they find refuge in an exotic world where powerful warriors reign supreme, an alien planet where the innocent but brazen Tedra challenges a bronzed barbarian named Challen.
Unfortunately for Tedra, she loses — and she must become Challen’s slave, fulfilling his every wish “even where he sleeps.” But what begins as punishment soon becomes sensuous joy — as Tedra discovers what it means to desire, as she tries to no avail to extinguish her passion in order to save her world.
