Author: Susan Kearney
Heroine: Angel Taylor
THE QUEST is the fourth book in my series of strong heroines--and don't worry, you needn't read the other 3 first. Book four starts right at the beginning of Kirek and Angel's story. You see, he stows away on a hunk of salvage that Angels going to claim--a sneaky way of meeting one of Earth's best space salvage captains. Angel grew up with a sick mother and learned to take care of herself. She won her ship in a card game and she's willing to fight for herself and her crew. But when she meets Kirek, he pushes all the right buttons and she learns that falling in love takes the most courage of all.
Why does it take courage to fall in love? Well, first the heroine has to open herself up to the idea of having feelings. And that's tough, because you can be rejected. You can be hurt. Or you can be swindled. The Universe is a tough place and to survive it's a battle of the fittest. So letting down her guard is difficult for Angel. And yet, Kirek has a way of sneaking under her skin, of seeing things in her she didn't know were there. And when he asks the very private Angel to share her mind, she's staggered by the idea of opening up both her heart, her thoughts and her soul.
In addition Kirek suspects Angel has secret powers, ones she must learn to accept--for herself, for him and because the future of the galaxy is at stake!!
