-- A Disillusioned Soldier
Hector Dukelsky, an upper-class career officer, yearns to fight a righteous war instead of defending corporate interests on Banff, an isolated mining moon. That dream seems dead when his entire command is slaughtered while he’s on leave. He returns to smoldering rubble, with no chance to survive let alone strike back at the enemy.
-- A Pilot with a Chip on Her Shoulder
Catt Sayer, a working-class fugitive from the law, earns a meager income carrying supplies on a decrepit airship, but her hard-won career vanishes when invaders capture Banff. While searching for survivors, she rescues Hector and flies him to safety. But he doesn’t want safety. He wants her to risk her life on a hopeless trek to attack the enemy headquarters.
-- A Dying Moon
Catt is sure Banff will kill them long before the enemy can, yet she agrees to Hector’s mad scheme, certain he’ll quit after experiencing one of the moon’s eruptions or ferocious storms. But he doesn’t quit, and his noble dream—and his love—conquer her heart. She pits her life and love against Banff’s lethal environment, even though the only reward for success will be the opportunity to face 10,000 enemy warriors.

About the Author
Edward Hoornaert is not only a science fiction and romance writer, he's also a certifiable Harlequin Hero, having inspired NYT best-selling author Vicki Lewis Thompson to write Mr. Valentine, which was dedicated to him. From this comes his online alter ego, "Mr. Valentine." These days, Hoornaert mostly writes science fiction—either sf romances, or sf with elements of romance. After living at 26 different addresses in his first 27 years, the rolling stone slowed in the Canadian Rockies and finally came to rest in Tucson, Arizona. Amongst other things, he has been a teacher, technical writer, and symphonic oboist. He married his high school sweetheart a week after graduation and is still in love … which is probably why he can write romance.

Space Opera. Action. Adventure. Romance. You should not tell a man that he does not know romance. We know they they can make wicked with seduction when needed, action for effect, suspense to draw you in or along, but this was a romantic adventure set in space that could teach some that romance does not have to be hardcore in your face right now. This was a romance to bloomed over time and under stress induced situations. The world was rich and vivid. The characters warm, personable, and developed. Their adventure was engrossing, dangerous, and impossible. The creatures, tech, moons, planets, space itself were richly developed and allowed one to experience it visually. I got the goods delivered in this one. I got action. I got emotional sadness, joys, humor. I got some suspense. I got it. I could and would read this one again. Space Opera. Action. Adventure. Romance. **This ARC was provided via Bewitching Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.**
