Overview

Science Fiction Romance from RITA nominated author!

Celie Cameron has spent her most of her life as a smuggler, skirting the law. She’s given that up for more legal delivery runs, but she misses the adrenaline rush of danger. When a routine delivery goes haywire, throwing her into the company of a handsome pilot—an android, or so she thinks—Celie finds herself embroiled in galaxy-spanning intrigue and deception.

The android, Rurick, is a miracle creation. Because of past experiences, Celie has avoided relationships with men. But she finds herself attracted to Rurick, feeling safe to indulge in flirtation with a pseudo man. As they join forces to challenge an insidious threat to the populations of the Verante quadrant, the attraction between them grows.

But then Celie learns Rurick is actually a human—a royal prince—masquerading as an android, and all bets are off. He doesn’t agree, and ensures Celie is forced to work closely with him. They battle wits from a glittering royal palace to a shipwreck on a barren planet. Facing possible death, she can no longer deny her feelings—or the man. Together, they fight to bring light to a darkness every bit as depraved as the expanse of space known as . . . Shadow Crossing.

PNR Reviews - Leslie Tramposch
The latest Shielder adventure was well worth the wait. I credit my new found love of futuristic romance in large part to Catherine Spangler. Shadow Crossing is a grand adventure, filled with intrigue and incredible passion. It is a tale of greed, ignorance, and betrayal, of self-acceptance, and of love. Ms. Spangler just gets better and better. I can't wait for the next installment!
WordWeaving Reviews - Cindy Penn
Author Catherine Spangler's gift for memorable futuristic romance absolutely sparkles in Shadow Crossing. While it works just as well as a standalone, Shadow Crossing takes its part in the series of books about Shielders with aplomb. As always, Spangler populates her universe with characters readers come to love. Celie and Rurick share a powerful passion even as they work at cross purposes. . . . An absolute reading pleasure, Shadow Crossing comes very highly recommended.

Catherine Spangler is a bestselling and award winning author of the Shielder Series (science fiction romance) and the Sentinel Series (urban fantasy romance). She is a two-time Golden Heart finalist and a RITA finalist and has received numerous other awards and honorable mentions.

She’s an active member of Romance Writers of America and her local chapter, Dallas Area Romance Authors. A frequent speaker at writers’ groups and conferences, she has taught workshops on the creative process, writing techniques, writing paranormal romance, and goal setting.

Her fun fact: I celebrated the sale of my first book, Shielder, by drinking champagne from a plastic cowboy boot mug. My critique partners brought four of them to my house, along with the champagne. Drinking champagne from those cowboy boot mugs every time one of us sold a book became a tradition, which we still honor.

    Brilliant book from one of the best

    This book is selling $50-250 dollars in the used market around the world!! Small wonder! There are some hot names in Futuristic/Sci-Romance today, but to those who embraced the sub genre years ago, you will know one name was there leading the way: Catherine Spangler. She just gets better and better with each book in her Shielder series - Shielder, Shamara, Shadower, Shadow Crossing and Shadow Fires (Dorchester Publishing). Shadow Crossing, I think is my favorite of all her talented works. I just love the premise! Celie Cameron was raised in a rough part of the Universe, saw horrors done to her family that have left their scars, deep scars. Now, after escaping through a worm whole with other Shielders, she is a smuggler, skirting on the edge of the law in Quadrant 9. In the past two years, she has been more legit - okay, boring. Her deliveries are almost always legit, there is no need for laser blasting, fights with The Controller ships. So when she lands, delivering her next shipment on time, she is caught off guard by the condition of the planet where she lands. The place are slums, and it smells of trouble. In fact, the whole place smells. She has little time to consider this appalling condition, because she discover Raven, has stolen away and plans on having an adventure with Calie. Nineteen, Raven is a Shielder, an orphan, who had been sold into slavery by the Anteks. Nessa and Chase rescued her (Shielder; Lovespell 1999) and raised her as their daughter. With the apprehension over the planet's condition, and now the burden of worrying over Raven, Celie just wants to make contact with Max, her client, get her money and 'get the hell out of Dodge' before something bad happens. She meets Rurick, who she thinks is Max. The sexy man, with the golden eyes, turns out to be Max's android. One made to look just like Max. Max, Rurick, Calie and Raven and making the transfer of merchandise, when they are attacked. Max saves Raven, and Calie and Rurick escape into Max's ship. Calie is upset, leaving her ship behind means she has nothing, but Rurick and Max refuse to return Raven and her. Calie soon learns that Max and Rurick are on an important mission to fight an ever-growing evil. I cannot reveal more without ruining the delightful tale. It's Spangler at her very best. Max and Rurick are both sexy, hunks, but with a great sense of humor that keeps you smiling at their antics, especially as Raven falls for the stoic Max, and Calie lets down her walls of fear to let Rurick near. So if you love high-flying Sci-Romance, then don't hesitate. This is one super read.

    spangler writes another hit...

    Captain Celie Cameron has grown bored in the new quadrant. After years of surviving by relying on her wits and feeling the rush of adrenaline, the independent smuggler has become bored from the staid and dull events of her deliveries. So, she wishes for excitement only to remember 'be careful what you wish for.' Raven McKnight, the 19 seasoned daughter of her friends, had stowed away in Celie's ship. Both arrive on the colony of Joba for a supposed routine delivery, only to be attacked during transfer. Rurick (the alleged android) and Max flee with Celie and Raven on their ship, leaving Celie's behind. Although Celie's curiosity and attraction to Rurick is something completely new to her, she's too afraid of her past to embrace new possibilities of any type of romance, android or human. Through each exciting encounter, from crash-landings, to political assinations, Celie finds herself doing just what she never wanted to do...falling in love with a man..but not just any man, Rurick--the question is, is he the one to change Celie's opinion on love and men? <p><u>Shadow Crossing</u> is a fantastic story full of romance, action, and heart. A truly captivating addition to Spangler's Shadow series.

    Exciting futuristic romance

    When she relocated to a different quadrant, Celie Cameron gave up her successful smuggling career to go straight. Her plan is to ship only legal cargo. Her latest shipment is to Joba, but upon landing at the settlement, Celie discovers that nineteen years old Raven McKnight, the daughter of her friends, has stowed away on her vessel...... Celie accompanied by Raven is completing the transaction with Max Rior and the android Rurick when a firefight occurs. The two women flee with Max and Rurick. To her surprise, the independent Celie is attracted to Rurick, but avoids males, even technological ones, as if the gender was the plague. However, she cannot resist Rurick just like he cannot ignore her. As they fall in love and keep Raven safe, they team up to battle the evil that endangers the quadrant......... The fourth Shielder novel is an enjoyable outer space romance that has fan favorites returning while providing a fresh tale to new fans who will want to read this author¿s backlist. The lead couple is a delight as both suspects avoid anything remotely entangling the heart yet they fall in love anyway. The myriad of subplots tie back to the prime theme so that fans of both genres receive a strong novel that stands alone, but is even more satisfying for those who have read Catherine Spangler¿s previous ¿S¿ (for stupendous) works......... Harriet Klausner
