Sweet Starfire & Crystal Flame (Hardcover) Jayne Ann Krentz
She is Cidra, and ethereal beauty, sheltered by a spiritual race but belonging to another people. He is Teague Severnce, a rugged adventurer used to taking and getting what he wants. Side by side on a dangerous quest, they will soar from the shimmering towers of Cidra's home city, to mining towns of the galaxy's outback, to the deadly jungles of the planet Renaissance. It is their fate to battle both human and alien danger-and each other. For Severance will awaken Cidra's untamed heritage...and the stirrings of a dark passion.
A woman of glittering eyes and cool, celestial bearing, she is Kalena, the last survivor of a proud heritage. Now, disguised as an innocent country girl, she is on a deadly secret mission-to destroy her family's enemy at any cost. Only one man can stop her, the soldier they call the Fire Whip, the stranger commanded to tame her. In their world of fire and ice, light and dark, and terrible, clashing forces, only their union will have the power to burn through the growing darkness that threatens their world.
