From the cover: As an officer of the Alliance, Shanara had been trained to destroy the psychics who sought galactic domination. But on a mission to protect the General's daughter, the beautiful bodyguard was abducted by Tristan: the most dazzingly sensual man she'd ever encountered. Far from the monster she'd been prepared for, her enemy was a man whose dreams and desires she admired. And in the duel they waged, she felt him parry every thrust, and found herself pierced to the soul by the riposte of his kiss. Soon the fiery beauty knew that as surely as her body was Tristan's hostage, so was her heart, and she questioned all she'd ever known-for if the alliance was right and Tristan's people were evil, there would never be a time or a place for their passion.
