About This Book
Robin Owens returns to the future and the planet Celta for the sequel to her magical fantasy romance HeartMate, which won the 2001 RITA Award for Best Paranormal Romance. This time Owens introduces Ruis Elder, a Null with the ability to neutralize psychic powers — an unwelcome trait on a planet that prizes psychic powers above all. Scorned and alone, banished to life outside the major cities, Ruis finds solace in restoring an abandoned spaceship. A chance encounter with the beautiful, aristocratic Ailim prompts him to risk everything for another moment alone with her, even as she risks forfeiting her career, her family estate, and her good name.
