Book Description

Newly-promoted Captain Brett Butcher is about to achieve his life-long ambition to command a battle cruiser. But before he takes up his new posting, he goes home on leave, hoping to perhaps catch a glimpse of his first love, the unattainable Lady Tarlyn.


When the queen is assassinated in a terrorist attack, Tarlyn’s life is thrown into turmoil when she, too, becomes a target. The last person she expects to rescue her is her childhood sweetheart, Brett Butcher.


As Validor’s Ptorix and human populations face off over a group of islands neither owns, the calls for war grow louder. Torn between duty and ambition, Butcher and Tarlyn struggle to prevent an inter-species conflict, while the ember of love that has smouldered for so long bursts into flame.


But with planetary peace at stake, both will be forced to choose; love or duty.

About the author

Greta van der Rol
Australia - but often cruising the Galaxy

Hi, I’m Greta van der Rol. I'm a writer, photographer, animal lover, and space nut. Most of my books are space opera with a dollop of romance - but I've written two paranormal novels featuring weretigers, and one historical fiction. I live with my husband not far from the beach in Queensland, Australia. When I’m not writing I take photographs of nature and animals, and now and then I do some cooking.
