Gifted with extrasensory powers, Mara had always been loath to use her special talents. But when offworlders kidnapped the Great Healer's daughter, she willingly volunteered to help rescue the child. Little did she know that her mission would take her across the universe--and into the mind and heart of a rakishly attractive commander.
From the moment Mara boarded his starship, Deke Sage knew she was going to be trouble. She was too naive and too trusting for her own good, and too captivating for his. He refused to open himself, body and soul, to the raven-haired temptress until he realized that without Mara's skills he'd never defeat his enemies--or savor the sweet delight of her love.
