Description: Sequel to AQP's best seller Eluria's Enforcer ... Kierra Andromeda and Jarek Bakari discovered an unexpected path to love and sanity when sold in captivity to the masochistic Tribunal Leader Odon to serve at his compound on Argadia. Saved from certain death by Eluria Zydon, they became part of the Freelion Rebellion, fighting to save Argadia from the stranglehold of the power-hungry Tribunal. Yet the scars of the past continue to haunt them. Although Jarek, a Serdionese Mindwanderer, was able to protect Kierra's mind from complete destruction during their time in captivity, she is unable to physically withstand the touch of another, including Jarek. Jarek carries his own hidden scars. How much of Jarek's soul did he barter to save Kierra from certain death before they were rescued? A slender thread binds them together, but will the violent past break through to claim them once again and destroy the fragile healing they have begun to achieve? Will the thread be severed or strengthened by at last facing the monsters that will be revealed? [Genres: Science Fiction / Futuristic / BDSM]

"4 1/2 Flags! ... A powerful book. Adrianna Dane's creativity shines in this book. There are many unique concepts introduced throughout the text. Jarek's ultimate sacrifice that he's kept from Kierra is heart-breaking in its intensity, which makes his love for her all the more beautiful ... When the tables are turned and Kierra must try to save Jarek, [the story] catapults from powerful and intense to potent and commanding ... While it is not for the faint of heart, I strongly encourage everyone to read this book."--Kerin, Euro-Reviews
The colors of his essence soothed her, stroked through her mind, settled her within a cocoon of pleasure. She caressed his chest, swirled her thumbs over tight, hard nipples, liked the feeling and felt an answering response in her physical body. Swirling fire entered her stomach and veered downward. Her shax released what seemed to be a liquid fire of pure need, and her radiance shimmered brightly. Her breath quickened.
"I want to seal with you, Jarek."
"Not yet, na nivia. You've only just begun to heal. I would do nothing to cause you pain. We will go slowly."
All these years he'd been so patient with her. Yet he'd always had faith her spirit and her body would mend.
She felt the glimmer of unshed tears in her eyes. "I love you, Jarek." She saw his fingers clench as they rested against his thighs.
"Touch me, Jarek. We can move slowly, but I need you to touch me."
He raised a hand and placed it lightly over one of hers. She felt a tingle, like an ache, but not quite the same, more a throb of acknowledgment. The sensation was one of excited awareness, the shade of pain was consumed by the pleasure.
"Jarek," she whispered.
Carefully, he rested his other hand over hers. "I have waited for this moment, dreamed of it."
The air around them was scented with arousal, hers as well as his, an awareness of need. They sat like that for long moments, as he entered her mind and guided her to sanctuary--a place of safety where his colors would slide through her, pleasuring her in the ways of a Serdionese mindwanderer. Slender shafts stroked her, eased her, teased her, until wave after wave of his passion colors consumed her.
