Coll Larren thought he’d pretty much hit bottom—until he jumped ship on Far Star and discovered just how far down, down could be. Once, he’d dreamed of freedom from the Empire’s oppressive rule, fought for it, almost died for it, but dreams can die as surely as the men who fight for them, and what does a man do when there are no dreams left? Now he’s broke, beaten, and determined to never again get sucked into a hopeless fight. That is, until he comes to the rescue of a golden-haired beauty with powerful enemies who doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit.

But how can she possibly face the needs roused within her by one dangerous, blue-eyed stranger if it means losing...everything?
With an absent-minded king for a father and twelve motherless, trouble-prone brothers to care for, Princess Arianne has had her hands full. Then her brothers go a little too far with their pranks and a witch turns them into swans.

Scout ship pilot Bram Mason has found solace in the dangerous, lonely work of exploring newly discovered planets. But there’s a difference between dangerous missions and suicidal ones, and his latest assignment definitely qualifies as suicidal--an ancient probe has reported the discovery of a planet at the very edge of the galaxy, a planet rich in a rare mineral used by humanity’s mortal enemies, the vicious, alien Gromin, to create an airborne poison capable of wiping out life on every human-inhabited planet known. The risk that the Gromin have intercepted the probe’s message is too great to ignore, and Bram’s is the only ship anywhere close. Even though scout ships are built for speed, not firepower, Bram is assigned the task of locating the planet and defending it against any Gromin incursion, no matter what the cost. Bram is prepared to risk his life if he has to, but he isn’t prepared for the assault on his heart by a woman half a galaxy away.
