(ORIG 02/95) BOOK #2
Book #1 Lord Of The Storm. Hunted by the Coalition and haunted by his past, Dax Silverbrake is determined that those who conquered his planet, almost completely destroying the Triotian people, will not enslave his young ward. But to rescue her, he must also rescue a woman who wears the notorious Coalition slave collar-a woman whose secrets could destroy what is left of his soul. Once an integral part of the Coalition command structure, collared slave Califa Claxton hides secrets that could mean her death by rebels and the Coalition alike. Her biggest fear is that the one act of courage which left her collared may never be enough to erase the past or give her a future. An unexpected and white-hot passion might change everything-if they can put the past behind them and risk everything for the rebellion.
