Chapter One Kystran, 2139 A.C. (After Colonization) The demonstration against boskrat killing had been going on for three days, with ecology students marching in front of the Fanya Science Lab, their projector banners flashing on and off in neon colors, protesting the need for the extinction of another species in the name of science.
The warrior could only shake his head, grinning, but Martha was lalughing her head off as the viewing screen behind them wnt blank.
Lithe beauty Tedra has dedicated her life to the art of combat, and no one, least of all a man, has ever been able to pierce through that rigid armor of single-minded purpose. Then political upheaval forces the elite bodyguard to flee her home, and the fiercely independent maiden finds that her only refuge is in the arms of a bronzed barbarian.
In a society where warriors rule supreme, Challen is the strongest and the most powerful. He claims Tedra as tradition and his own desires demand, but though he ignites her uninitiated passions, the proud fighter will not allow anyone dominance over her. Challenging him to physical battle, she also dares him to discover that she is a worthy partner, and together they can conquer all realms.
In the year 2139, fearless Tedra De Arr sets out to rescue her beleaguered planet Kystran from the savage rule of the evil Crad Ce Moerr. Experienced in combat but not in love, the beautiful, untouched Amazon flies with Martha, her wise-cracking, free-thinking computer, to a world where warriors reigns supreme--and into the arms of the one man she can never hope to vanquish: the bronzed barbarian Challen Ly-San-Ter. A magnificent creature of raw yet disciplined desires, the muscle-bound primitive succeeds where no puny Kystran male had before--igniting a raging fire within Tedra that must be extinguished before she can even think of saving her enslaved world. . .
