STARWOMAN'S SANCTUARY (Diaspora Worlds #3) - Melisse Aires
|Ooh, is this a multicultural romance?!|
They are worlds apart, literally.
Sister Skyleen has built a Starwoman Sanctuary for the needy on a busy space hub. Orphans, aging spacers and the school keep her days busy. But at night Skyleen knows it is time to make a change from her vocation. The stranger, Kyler, reminds her of her dreams-- a husband, life as a peaceful settler, raising a family. First, though, she needs to turn the Sanctuary over to competent hands.
Kyler, military commander and heir to the throne of New Prague, is used to the best of everything-- technology, talent, and the luxuries of life. But something about the utilitarian Sanctuary and the beautiful Starwoman Skyleen appeals to him. With the invaders on the Alliance border, he can’t stay and explore this attraction. His duty lies on New Prague.
They learn invaders are charging toward the hub. Skyleen won’t leave –not without all four hundred Sanctuary members. Getting the Sanctuary to safety just might cost them their lives.
To celebrate this release, Melisse Aires is having a contest--one of the prizes is a lovely chevron amethyst necklace! Visit the author’s site for complete details.
