Overview

Sabin has been in every hellhole in the galaxy. In his line of work, hives of scum and villainy are nothing to fear. But Giza's is different, and the bronze-haired beauty at the bar is something special. Not only can she sweep a man off his feet, she can break his legs--and steal his heart. And though Moriah isn't what Sabin had come for, she is suddenly all he desires.The man is a menace, what with his dark good looks and overwhelming masculinity. Worse, Sabin is a shadower, a bounty hunter, which means he is only one step removed from the law. He is dangerous to a smuggler like Moriah, to her freedom. Yet he draws her as a moth to a flame, and even as she pledges to stay cool, her senses catch fire. Then, in his arms, Moriah realizes that this bounty hunter is different. His touch is gentle, and his kiss sweet. And his love leads to a fantastic freedom she's never known.

Drinking champagne from those cowboy boot mugs every time one of us sold a book became a tradition, which we still honor.

Where do you hide in a galaxy that is ruled by Controllers? Controllers are far reaching beings that can dominate your very life for their own purposes. In a time where no place is safe and no one can be trusted comes this tale of two people determined to do anything to ensure the survival of those that mean the most to them. This includes breaking all of the rules... 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. Sabin and Moriah ignite the pages of this book with their battle of wills and ultimately, their surrender. If you love engaging Sci-fi romantic adventure, don't miss this opportunity to sample Ms. Spanglers finest work to date.

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.

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.

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.
