Tall, curvaceous and attractive, with auburn hair and grey eyes, Cat is also independent and single minded. She has learnt to trust no one and to rely on her wits to survive. Raised on Earth with her only sister, her comfortable life was turned upside down when her father deserted them. She can handle a starship or a laser-gun and is well able to look after herself whether in hand to hand combat or with a weapon.
After several years in space, she has things in her past, secrets, which it would be dangerous to reveal, and one in particular which she has made a promise to keep safe, and to protect with her life, rather than allow it to fall into the wrong hands.
Past experience has led her to mistrust men and to be determined never to let another one betray her trust. Nevertheless, there is one man whom she has sworn to track down and confront – the man responsible for her sister’s death. When she finally meets the man she seeks, however, she is confused by conflicting emotions which have nothing to do with revenge.
Marooned on a hostile planet, somehow they have to find a way to work together, to survive.
