From the author of the popular Iron Admiral series and Morgan’s Choice comes another rousing SciFi adventure to get your pulse pounding and your blood boiling (with that little dollop of romance):
She's lost her husband, her best friend is missing. What else has she got to lose?
Slightly shady freighter captain, Jess Sondijk, thought she had her life under control until Admiral Hudson's Confederacy battle cruiser stops her ship to search for contraband. His questions reopen matters she had thought resolved. What if her husband's death on his way back from Tabora wasn't accidental? Jess decides to investigate, while keeping Hudson at arms' length.
While he's attracted to the lovely Jess, Hudson is also concerned about what might be happening on Tabora and how that may involve the Confederacy's enemies.
Jess and Hudson's interests collide in more ways than one. But while Jess is more than willing to put her life on the line to protect what's hers, Hudson must balance the risk of inter-species war at worst and the end of his career at best, in a deadly game of political intrigue, murder and greed. At the end of the day, how much is he willing to lose for the woman he has come to love?
About the Author
Greta van der Rol wishes she was born a thousand years or so in the future, where space ships zip around the Galaxy and people have adventures on exotic worlds. Well, if you can’t be there, why not write about it? And slap in a healthy dollop of romance, too? After many years in the computer industry, Greta now writes full time. Her first published book, 'To Die a Dry Death', is historical fiction based on the true story of the wreck of the Dutch merchant ship Batavia off the desolate coast of Western Australia in 1629. There may some more historical fiction in the future but for now, Greta is working on more fast and furious space romps, because they're fun. She lives in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, near the beach. When she isn’t writing she enjoys cooking and photography. Visit her website at http://gretavanderrol.com
