"A futuristic romance that is full of adventure and intrigue"
Although niece to Sovereign Alexander of planet Oasis, Lily
is never left to forget that she is the daughter of the
Circe witch who killed his queen and infant son. Raised to
believe in the planet's motto - Strength, Honor, Unity &
Nobility, Lily has spent her life serving the needs of the
people of Oasis. Her Sovereign has asked her to approach
the Senate to request aid now that the Ravigans are
attempting to conquer their planet; so she is secreted onto
a cargo ship. When Ravigans attack the cargo ship, she is
desperate and assists an escaping cyro-prisoner and they
join together to escape the doomed ship.
Shaun Phoenix has had an unusual life, but nothing in his
memory is as unusual as what is happening now that he met
Lily. Suddenly he has psi-powers of a Circe witch which is
impossible as all Circe males with powers are killed at
birth. He agrees to become Lily's protector and his powers
and love for Lily grows. Somehow they must find a way to
prevent a war and be together but schemes and betrayals of
the leaders of 3 different planets stand in their way.
Author Colby Hodge, also writing as Cindy Holby, has a
skill at weaving a tale you don't want to miss. STARGAZER
is a futuristic romance that is full of adventure and
intrigue. The humor and dialogue are balanced and fast
paced. STARGAZER keeps you speculating as the plot thickens
and twists and motives and abilities are explored. If the
publisher fulfills the indication at the story's end,
Reuben, Shaun's best friend and sexy smuggler pilot, will
be the next story in Ms. Hodge's universe.
