Description


Two hearts are never more than one dimension apart. A routine fuel run through one of the planet's dimensional portals explodes in violence when Major Geneieve Lockhart's Jumper team is hammered with an unprovoked attack. With her ship disabled and contact to mission control limited, Genie faces her worst nightmare--losing her crew on the blood-soaked floor of a foreign desert. Help comes from an unlicensed freelance mercenary ship, piloted by a man she never thought she'd see again. Her AWOL ex-lover, Lt. Col. Dante Bowen. Bowen knows answering Genie's distress call puts his undercover mission to expose a governmental conspiracy at risk. But after faking his death six years ago, he owes her something. Ending up chained in her cargo hold for transport to his own court martial wasn't the thanks-for-the-rescue he expected. The bridges between them may be in ashes, but their desire burns as hot as ever. Even as Genie wonders what happened to Bowen's code of honor, her body betrays her heart at every turn. The hostile race that attacked her ship, though, is coming back to finish them off. The only way to ensure freedom--on both sides of the dimensional divide--is to put her trust in the one man who betrayed it? Warning: Contains action-packed dimensional travel, hot military wartime sex, betrayed lovers and evil, power-hungry bastards.
