Overview

Science Fiction Romance from RITA nominated author!

Injured in a bar fight and then stranded on a hellhole planet when her ship is stolen, smuggler Moriah Cameron finds herself at the mercy of arrogant Sabin Travers. She manages to elude him, but quickly realizes she has no good option to get off Calt, so she stows away on Sabin’s ship. Sabin discovers her just as she stumbles upon a secret that could affect hundreds of lives—a hidden Shielder colony. Forced to take Moriah captive to protect that secret, he decides to take her to Elysia to have her memory altered.

Instead of being grateful that he didn’t shut her up permanently, Moriah is infuriated about being delayed from picking up a crucial shipment. In return, Sabin resents the disruption this defiant and ungrateful woman creates in his life.

Having a strong aversion to domineering men like Sabin, Moriah manages to steal his ship and escape—after dumping him, drugged and naked, at a Pleasure Dome. Her freedom is short lived when Sabin catches up with her. He finds a way to make her pay, and she has no choice but to go along.

As they battle wills and wits across the quadrant, Moriah is shocked by her growing attraction to Sabin. But when she discovers he is also a shadower, all bets are off. She eludes him once more and heads to a dangerous but lucrative delivery. Things go wrong at the drop, and only Sabin’s major sacrifice can save her. But ultimately, it’s love, acceptance, and healing that save them both.

What readers are saying about this science fiction romance:

“A richly textured futuristic novel . . . and an absolutely wonderful read. Readers will delight in Shadower.” — The Midwest Book Review

“Catherine Spangler's previous novel, Shielder, garnered several awards as a highly regarded futuristic romance. Ms. Spangler returns to that same setting with the exciting, tense-laden Shadower. The story line never eases up due to the opposing objectives of the strong lead characters. However, what makes this tale a triumph similar to its predecessor is the audience can see and hear the heartbeats of these worlds like Giza, which in turn, provides an authentic feel to a wonderful science fiction romance.” — Harriet Klausner

“This is first and foremost a science fiction romance. The characters are flawed, and deep. I LOVED them. . . . The chemistry between Sabin and Moriah fairly sizzled.” — Monique Atgood

“Award winning author and writing sensation, Catherine Spangler fans the fire then feeds the flames of passion in Shadower. She expertly tells a tale of a dangerous cat and mouse game full of gutsy moves, calculated risks and raw sensuality. . . . If you love engaging sci-fi romantic adventure, don't miss this opportunity to sample Ms. Spangler’s finest work to date.” — Ballston Book House Review

“A Riveting Futuristic Romance = An Excellent Read! There is as much suspense as romance here. . . . and the romance sizzles. Ms. Spangler has created a grim universe where technology, progress and education do not prevent evil. She peoples her story with all kinds of fascinating creatures, and fabulous secondary characters. . . . Highly recommended!” — Jana L. Perskie

Meet the Author

Catherine Spangler is a bestselling and award winning author of the Sentinel Series (urban fantasy romance) and the Shielder Series (science fiction 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.

    Excellent futuristic romance

    SHADOWER Sabin Travers has seen the dregs of the universe so ending up in a hellhole on Giza is not much of a change for the bounty hunter while waiting for repairs to his ship. What is a shocker is the elegant looking woman at the other end of the bar. A planet like this dump only houses tired rejects servicing the lowlifes that frequent places like this. However, he ends up interceding when she becomes embroiled in a bar fight after she is accused of cheating during a game of chance. <P>Moriah needs to leave Giza in order to complete her smuggling mission. She sneaks on board his ship only to learn that her 'host' is helping the Shielders stop from getting annihilated. Both have immediate needs to assist large populations that apparently place Moriah and Sabin in conflict as to time and place. Also adding to the quandary is that Moriah and Sabin are falling in love with one another. <P>Catherine Spangler's previous novel, SHIELDER, garnered several awards as a highly regarded futuristic romance. Ms. Spangler returns to that same setting with the exciting, tense-laden SHADOWER. The story line never eases up due to the apparent opposing objectives of the strong lead characters. However, what makes this tale a triumph similar to its predecessor is the audience can see and hear the heartbeats of these worlds like Giza, which in turn, provides an authentic feel to a wonderful science fiction romance. <P>Harriet Klausner
