SHADES OF DARK.
Court-martialed Imperial Fleet captain Chasidah Bergren is on the run with her fugitive lover, the telepathic mercenary Gabriel Sullivan. Rim-worlds and illegal deep-space outposts offer little safety. Corruption in the empire—expertly orchestrated by Sully’s powerful cousin, Hayden Burke—is everywhere: among her crew, her friends. Even her family. Then a mysterious operative offers critical intel on Burke’s plans. But Captain Del Regarth has plans of his own…
Everyone has a price. Everyone can make a choice. But when Sully makes his, Chaz must choose between what Sully has become—and what her heart demands she must do.
