"Can't you even cooperate with something meant to help you?" Talon snapped.
"How do I know it will help? I'd be a fool to trust you."
"I'm not giving you any choice, dammit." Without warning, his free hand shot forward to grab her forearm in a vise like grip. He jerked her against his side.
A jolt of awareness rocketed through Kari. Tucked under his muscular arm, pressed against the hard, warm side of his naked chest, she felt a tingle cascade through her body.
Talon smeared the nectar paste into the cuts encircling her wrist.
"This stuff must come in handy for someone with as many enemies as you have," she said sourly, retaliating for the strange, unwelcome feelings his proximity invoked.
"Exactly. Beryl has to patch up my wounds every other day. She can barely keep up with all the battles I'm in."
"You're only trying to cheer me with thoughts of your demise," Kari countered smoothly.Review:
As the daughter of the Dynast, Kari Solis has spent years in training to defend everything her father holds dear. The solar system was conquered by her father, Myklar Solis, twenty-three years ago but the Rebels, headed by High Commander Rand Marko, fight to regain control of their lives. Kari is determined to bring Rand in and stop the Rebels, but a lone smuggler who goes only by the name of Talon gets in her way-- and in the process, steals her heart. Talon lives on the edge, a smuggler by trade and a man without a name. His only companion is a human-like, telepathic bird named Beryl who watches over him like a mother hen. The gloves he wears hide his shameful secret-- one that only he and his brother Rand share. When Rand is captured by Kari and sent to the brutal Narkwar prison, Talon vows revenge. But he never counted on falling in love with the woman who seems more likely to cause him pain than passion. From the formidable glaciers of Serac to the magical, multi-hued world of the Sylphs, Nighthawk is a memorable journey. Kristen Kyle's debut novel is impressive and well deserving of the Golden Heart award she received. Ms. Kyle has a knack for vividly creating places that only exist in her imagination, although at times the reader may be reminded of the Star Wars movies. The villainous Naill rivals the very best (worst?) and this reviewer wished he had gotten what he deserved... perhaps Ms. Kyle can be cajoled into writing a sequel!A definite must read for futuristic fans! A dazzling debut novel from Kristen Kyle! Talon is a hero to love! Kristen Kyle is destined to be a rising star in futuristic romance! A page turner from beginning to end. Stunning descriptions jump from the pages!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
Determined to earn her father's approval, Kari Solis set out to capture the commander of the rebel forces wreaking havoc on their world. But she didn't count on her plans being upset by a rogue smuggler--a handsome loner concealing a shadowy past and an even darker secret.
After he managed to turn the tables and take her hostage, Talon should have rid himself of Kari's dangerous company at the first opportunity. Instead, he found himself torn between a raging hunger to possess her and a driving need to escape a passion that jeopardized everything he'd strived for.
Confronted by a dark menace threatening all they held dear, the two reluctantly joined forces, igniting a firestorm of cosmic passion that took them to a final battle--pitting the power of betrayal against the strength of their love. -- Book Description
