THE DREAMER ...

Dayra Smith didn't know a flitter engine from a solar generator, but she was determined to turn a run-down piece of land into a working farmhold. And even though she had to slave day and night, the stubborn beauty refused to ask any man for help —- until the deadly forces of a murderous empire threatened her home.

THE DRIFTER ...

Down and out on Far Star, Coll Larren was stuck until the next merchant ship arrived on the distant planet. In need of food and shelter, he offered Dayra his assistance. Coll didn't know the first thing about plowing and seeding, but he was more than wiling to battle Dayra's enemies if his efforts would help him conquer her heart.
