In Starstruck, our handsome hero is a starship commander with a reputation as a brave daredevil, a thrill-seeking gambler, and a charming ladies' man. He's just been assigned his toughest mission yet: escorting our heroine, a dedicated and demanding diplomat, to negotiate peace among the warring races of the Alpha Sector. Our initially prim heroine is torn between disapproval of the hero's reckless ways and a powerful--but secret--attraction. Nail-biting tension, daring rescues, exotic space landscapes, amusing culture clashes, sexy encounters, and life-and-death struggles: they're all in Starstruck. And throughout it all, our hero and heroine discover that love is the most powerful force in the universe.
Michael Pocock, founder of Book By You®, commented, "Ever since I was abducted by aliens I've had this compelling urge to introduce an outer space romance novel. My staff think I was brainwashed--maybe I was--but it's a romance story that had to be told. The passion is out of this world!"
