Lurin's Surrender: It's the hefty bounty on his head that draws Captain Mara Seni to Lurin Vez, not his darkly handsome visage, his intelligence, or his compelling, electric blue eyes. When she captures him, however, she very quickly discovers that the legendary sensual skills of the Thesha are no myth and Lurin means to use every skill he possesses to win his freedom. The Thief of Mardu: Professional thief Isa Araye has a bad feeling about her current job, and the dead body she trips over near the safe proves something is terribly wrong. Catam of Mardu, a successful bounty hunter, is bored with his life, restless for reasons he cannot explain. So when his peacemaker brother needs his help, he readily agrees. How hard can it be to track down a murdering thief hiding on his own homeworld? But things are not as they seem, and Catam's boredom turns into something else entirely as he and Isa set out to prove her innocence. Rating: Contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and mild violence.
