A gambler is cheating in
a den of the Borealis space station, and Lieutenant Zara
Frankel intends to catch him in the act. She always gets her
man, but this one could prove more than she can handle.
Captain Czerno Drake,
code name Black Dragon, has come under cover to break his
innocent uncle from the most secure penitentiary in the galaxy,
on the Borealis space station. He will stop at nothing to
succeed, even enrolling the help of the lovely straight arrow
TPP enforcer. When Zara realizes that she’s been used by a
shrewd but seductive rebel, her reaction surprises everyone,
most of all herself.
THE BOREALIS SERIES
In orbit over
a deserted outpost at the edge of conquered space sits an aging space
under the control of the Trans Planetary Protectorate. Its name is
Borealis, and it is slowly falling apart
as the Protectorate funnels its massive
resources into the border wars,

GIRL MEETS BOY
When she breezed through the doors of the
crowded and noisy casino, Zara glided straight to the private
area behind the row of tall greenery and searched the high
stakes tables for her suspected cheater. The owner said he wore
a tan and yellow outfit and flaunted a white fluffy Terran cat.
An ostentatious luxury.
She easily spotted the caramel overcoat
and the sleeping white fluff on the pink gambling table. From
the back, as she walked toward the table, she studied the square
shoulders stretching the expensive velvet, strong shoulders for
a pleasure-seeking dandy. The gleaming dark hair tied at the
nape with a yellow silk scarf denoted a rare degree of
refinement for a human male, and as she neared him, the musky

crossed her spine and her legs melted like chocolate in a solar
flare. Despite the extraordinary refinement of his garb and
manners, this man was alpha-male through and through, and as
wild as they came. Eye candy in caramel velvet and yellow silk
wrapping. All she could think about was unwrapping him, like a
present at yuletide.
