Some have deserted and fled to Mandalone with the mercenaries, renegade clone troopers, and rogue Jedi who make up Kal Skirata's ragtag resistance to Imperial occupation. Others--including men from Delta and Omega squads--now serve as Imperial...

U.S. Deputy Marshal Gideon Fox's first glimpse of the ravishing beauty was like a mystical vision. But when Lorelei Russell identified herself, the lawman in Gideon kicked in--this woman was wanted for murder! He'd have to tame his fierce attraction until justice could be served. For her part, Lori couldn't believe the injustice of it all. Falsely accused, apprehended by a hard-hearted marshal and, the most unfair part--how her body rebelled every time Gideon was near, making resistance to her...

"Nathaniel ... Icon. Celebrity. Heartthrob. But underneath his movie-star good looks, he's battling with the demons of his past. No one knows the real Nathaniel, they only see the pinup, the illusion he pretends to be. Then one night he is forced to rely on Katie Field, an ordinary young woman from a very different world. She may be starstruck but she isn't blinded by the bright lights of fame. Can Nathaniel trust her enough to reveal the real man behind the mask?"--Page 2 of cover
