Captain of the Jumpvessel Singularity, he has spent his entire adult life navigating the void between the stars, blissfully avoiding any part of the fate that the higher powers had decreed for him in the war between the White Wind and the Red. But in a world where immortality is commonplace, death is not always what it seems, and destiny is not so easily cast aside. The Mentor In memory of his love for Tobias, Rafael became Antonio´s closest friend and ally, supporting his protégé´s advancement in the Spacer Guild despite the deep disapproval of Antonio´s family. Both Spacers have their secrets, however, and nothing stays buried forever. Will the truth set them free, or tear them apart?

From New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Selena Kitt - over a million books sold! Sibyl Blackthorne isn´t afraid of anything - except maybe being sold into marriage to a man she doesn´t love. A man she´s never even met. A man who, by reputation, is one of Scotland´s cruelest lairds in over a century. But what choice does she have, with her father dead and her uncle now married to his brother´s widow, putting him in charge of not only the Blackthorne fortune, but Sibyl´s future as well? Then her betrothed turns out to actually be far worse than his reputation, so headstrong Sibyl decides life as a peasant, or even death, would be preferable to a future with such a despicable man, and makes plans to run away. On an organized hunt for wolves - or, as the Scots call them, wulvers - Sybil escapes her fiancé´s clutches, only to find she´s run into something far more untamed and dangerous in the middle of the woods. When a big, brawny, long-haired man, who only speaks to her in Gaelic and calls himself Raife, simply picks her up and carries her off with him into the Scottish wild, Sibyl knows she´s in trouble. When he takes her to a place no human has ever been, she knows she´s gone over the edge. And when he, at last, marks her as his own, she discovers that only one wild heart can claim another.
