My cover designer and friend thought the original cover looked muddy in the thumbnail version, so she took out the lovely red nebula. I have to admit, it looks cleaner without the reddish mist. The original version is in an earlier blog. What do you think?
If you want to know how the book came about, you can check out the story of our collaboration here.
Updated cover versions are available at Amazon, Smashwords, and Create Space for those who, like me, prefer an actual book. B&N should be available soon.

Valara & Gordain’s story is one week away from publication! We’re so excited to finally share their tale with you.
Does she have a soul?
Genetically engineered to blend with a sophisticated, aristocratic world, Valara F’al-ten awakens from her hibernetic sleep in an uncharted star system, orbiting a planet rich in resources Earth Colony 5 needs, but how does one negotiate inter-galactic trade agreements with a society that still wields swords?
Clan High Chieftain, Gordain Ryn Phellan, has problems—an outlawed clan, a rival chieftain, and a despot with mind-control capabilities—even before he captures the bewitching female who claims to have a flying ship. That she could be kin to his greatest foe and was assembled rather than born should repel him. It doesn’t. Instead, he finds himself torn between his responsibility to the clans and his escalating desire for her.
Despite unnerving physical and emotional changes, Lara needs to complete her mission, but Dain’s enemies have other plans. Past and future collide as they work together to neutralize the threats, leaving Lara caught between duty and the yearning of her awakening heart.
