Overview

Lara Danexx suffered years of torment at the hands of the evil and twisted Ranzon Slavarien. But she escaped and raised an army of rebels to destroy him. Victory is within her grasp when an unwelcome intruder hunts her down and spins wild tales of her lost family and royal blood. This arrogant invader stirs her long dead emotions and threatens to ruin all of her plans. She can't allow herself to desire his touch, or believe his lies...too much is at stake.
General Anton Coridian gave his word that he would find his beloved queen's long lost sister, Princess Jondalara. He expects a pampered princess. Instead he finds a guerilla leader with an army of loyal cut-throats and rogues at her back. Every instinct he has demands that she is his lifemate and he must steal her away to safety. But the dark determination and pain in her eyes reminds him of his own tortured past. She offers him redemption and the chance to right an unspeakable wrong. Destiny must be laughing, because now he's fallen in love with a woman who will stop at nothing to free her people...even if it means sacrificing herself. Anton is determined to join her, both in bed and in battle. Now he must convince Lara that his love can save not just her life, but her battered heart.

Meet the Author

Cynthia Woolf was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in the mountains west of Golden. She spent her early years running wild around the mountain side with her friends.

Their closest neighbor was one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.

Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. She wrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she liked at the time.

She worked her way through college and went to work full time straight after graduation and there was little time to write. Then in 1990 she and two friends started a round robin writing a story about pirates. She found that she missed the writing and kept on with other stories. In 1992 she joined Colorado Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America. Unfortunately, the loss of her job demanded the she not renew her memberships and her writing stagnated for many years.

In 2000, she saw an ad in the paper for a writers conference being put on by CRW and decided she'd attend. One of her favorite authors, Catherine Coulter, was the keynote speaker. Cynthia was lucky enough to have a seat at Ms. Coulter's table at the luncheon and after talking with her, decided she needed to get back to her writing. She rejoined both CRW and RWA that day and hasn't looked back.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

Centauri Twilight follows directly after the events of Centauri Dawn. Anton is physically recovered from his life-threatening injuries and he needs to complete the mission his new sister-in-law and queen has requested of him. Once he finds her twin, Princess Jondalara, he can retire into dark solitude and regret. Slavarian took so much from him, but he still lives while so many others died. He meets with the rebels on Delaz, hoping they know where he can find the missing princess, but he finds far more than he bargained for. Lara shed the hope that her family would come for her when she shed the rest of her name. She was sold as a slave to Zelton Slavarian when she was just a young girl and built up her defenses accordingly. It didn't matter how attractive this scarred man was, there was no way she would give him her trust. All she wants is revenge against the men who hurt her, and Anton seems to have the means to help her make this happen. In her head, she knew that men only know how to cause pain. In her heart, she hoped this man was different. This book was much more visceral than its predecessor. The images of what was done to Lara show exactly how strong this heroine really is, because despite her past she still has hope. Lara is someone a person can really look up to, and Anton is a perfect fit for her. His scars, both physical and invisible, allow him to understand the person Lara is. The Slavarian in this book is a great villain for this tortured couple, because he is even more depraved than his brother. He is exactly the kind of person I love seeing brought to justice.
