TRUE BLOOD by PATRICIA WADDELL
**2006 PEARL NOMINEE - BEST FUTURISTIC ROMANCE**
Someone's out for blood . . . True Blood
The unexplained explosion of the space freighter Llyndar
brings the League of Planets and the Korcian Empire to the
brink of war. The Korcian Guard is on full alert, and the
League is depending on Officer Danna MacFadyen of the
Diplomat Corps to defuse the situation. At the request of
her superiors, Danna puts her psychometric skills to work.
Was the explosion tragedy or terrorism? But Danna's soon
burdened with another question . . . Can she work side-by-
side with Cullon Gavriel, a handsome Korcian Enforcer,
without losing her heart?
Fighting isn't just in a Korcian's blood, it's in his very
soul. An Enforcer by trade and a loner by choice, Cullon
Gavriel arrives on Ramora with one purpose in mind: to find
out who's killing True Bloods. What he finds is a beautiful
Terran female with the ability to step into the past. But
can the information Danna gleans from her dreamscapes
prevent future murders?
As the pieces of an explosive puzzle fall into place, Danna
and Cullon step into a conspiracy that stretches across the
galaxy to the capital city of the Korcian Empire, where
shocking secrets are waiting to be discovered, and where
