CAIT O' KEEFE's mother is human and her father is Sidhe.
Their sisterline is the last remnant of a once proud and
populous people. How do you make friends and find suitable
mates when most humans believe the Sidhe are imaginary
creatures from old folk tales? And how do you explain to
prospective mates that Sidhe culture expects every woman to
have at least two husbands?
Her people don't hide under shamrocks and they don't have
gauzy wings. They exist! And, at five foot eight, Cait
hardly qualifies as a "wee person". Strong empathic senses
are NOT magic powers and annual tetanus shots eliminate the
need to avoid contact with "cold iron."
Frustrated by her failure to find suitable mates, tired of
endless questions about the unusual tattoo on her left arm
and the fact that her human mother has two husbands, Cait
embarks on a journey of self-discovery. Sanctuary, a space
station orbiting the Moon, is her first stop. There, she
joins an expedition headed out to the asteroids where she
hopes to find tangible proof of an extraterrestrial origin
for her Sidhe ancestors.
The solar wing flight instructor for the expedition is
EDELMIRO JESUS SANTIAGO DE ARROYO (INDIO). He's also an
undercover agent whose terrible facial scars give him the
appearance of a hardened criminal. Betrayed by a previous
wife who tried to rob him blind, he conceals his emotions
behind an abrupt demeanor. Cait's easy acceptance of
Indio's scars breaches his aloof facade. They go out
dancing. That same night he awaken her deep sensuality.
He's not prepared to let her go off to the asteroids
TAMERLANE JEHU BARNETT (TINY) is the owner/creator of
Tiny's Emporium on Sanctuary Station. Hardly anyone knows
his real name and he likes it that way because Tiny sure
beats the hell out of Tammy for a nickname. A black ex-Navy
SEAL and explosives expert, he's Indio's undercover
teammate. He hopes to mount a low key courtship of Cait.
But when Indio hooks up with her, Tiny finds himself in a
win/lose situation between his best friend and the woman he
wants to court.
Warning: Explicit sex.
