eBook Category: Erotica
eBook Description: As The TreeKeeper, Kayana holds the highest office on Vios, a planet colonized hundreds of years ago but reliant on an archaic economic system. In return for money, the colonites bestow upon Kayana everything she might ever need--except the things she longs for most. Chosen at age six for her office, Kayana never again left the Tree Hall. But her selectors did not see in her a restlessness, a yearning for adventure, that has grown stronger in adulthood. When the dashing star captain, Maddox, steals a kiss during a bestowment, he awakens in Kayana a passion she barely understands. But he also sets in motion a chain of events that will lead to his death--or the downfall of an entire planet.

9 Reader Ratings:
"A delicious blend of fantasy and science fiction all wrapped up in a love story both tender and hot enough to satisfy any reader of erotic romance."--Megan Hart, author of With Steps Like Knives
"...An enchanting story. The encounters between Kayana and Maddox are enticing, leaving me craving more."--Carla Vail, Coffee Time Romance
"I'm sorry," she said.
Maddox looked alarmed, then his face went blank. He sounded unconcerned when he said, "About what?"
"About my selfishness. I've been using you for my own pleasure."
Relief plain on his face, he laughed. "Sugar, believe me, the pleasure is mutual."
Kayana's throat felt tight. No one had ever used an endearment for her before. "What are you here for? Why did you come that first time? Why did you kiss me?"
He sobered and studied the blade of dark grass he'd been shredding. "I came because Mussie talked about you and made me wonder what kind of woman would take such a job. I kissed you because I had to." He looked up. "And I have no damned idea what I want from you. All I know is it's not dollas."
