The TPP have developed a new destructive weapon and intend to test it on the Borealis Space Station. Helios Talon, a Rebellion freedom fighter from Pith, is dispatched to the station to discover the extent of the weapon's development and stop it if necessary.

A Gentleman and a Rogue cleverly blends the fantastical and the historical into something bizarrely believable. A must read, whether you are a particular fan of the genre or not...because real heartfelt romance is still at the heart of the story. - 4 Stars, Long & Short Reviews.

Danube in Candlelight is a fantastic book filled with endearing characters, vivid descriptions and a story that flows well and is hard to put down." Definately one "You Need to Read." - Lupa, "You Gotta Read Reviews."
