A book and a $5.00 Starbucks giftcard. The item on the right is a replica of the book cover on a card. How cool is that? I won this in a giveaway at Deal Sharing Aunt. Ms. Woolf, the author contacted me direct for my info. I received the book within six days. Can you believe that! You can read more about her at CynthiaWoolf.com.
Allow me to reprint the storyline (taken from the back cover):
They stole her love, her life and want to steal the secrets secured in her mind. Secrets that could topple world governments and decimate quadrant security forever. Now she's on an epic quest to find out why and make those responsible pay.
Honora Reyestat gave up everything to become a member of the esteemed Gregarian Guard. No family, no friends, no connections-nothing that can ever be used against her. Captured and enslaved, she's become a prized gladiator for her master. Given the task of training a new slave, she recognizes a fellow Zolthor and the son of a tribal leader at that. Her mission changes from discovery of the enemy's tactics and secrets to returning Joridan to his people.
Drawn to this fierce woman as no other, Joridan Dolana tries to explain she is wrong. He's not Zolthor, he's Centauri. He was raised on Centauri with his sister. Faced with proof of a father's ultimate betrayal, he must choose between revenge and the protection of this woman who has sworn to never return his love.The book is 309 pages, and large print (love that).
Look, she even signed the inside for me. It says Enjoy the story! Cynthia Woolf.
And on the card, she wrote Enjoy a cup on me. Cynthia Woolf.
Gosh, I feel so special! I can't wait to start reading the book.
