His captive has issued a most unusual ultimatum . . .
He must make love to her. . .
Little does he know that giving her what she needs may bind him to
her forever . . .
Rystani star pilot Xander is willing to use unusual methods, no
matter how unorthodox, to save the galaxy from a deadly virus. He's
already resorted to kidnapping bio-geneticist Alara Calladar in the
hopes that her psi-talent of identifying DNA will help find a cure
to save both their worlds.
But now his sworn enemy has revealed that her biology requires her
to periodically regenerate her cells by making love or she'll die.
Xander is stunned, yet fascinated, by her admission and wonders
what other secrets she's keeping. While he has little choice but to
agree to trade his life-saving love making for her psi powers, he's
determined to keep an emotional distance. No way is he falling for
her, a woman from a race who invaded and occupies his home world.
Soon their desperate bargain becomes a turbulent but all-consuming
passion. Her body isn't just rejuvenating each time they make love,
it's adapting to his on a genetic level. Before long she will be
unable to make love to any man but Xander.
Xander resists becoming her conquest, but not even the dangerous
mission can distract him from Alara's appeal. She's just the kind
of woman he admires. Intelligent, resourceful, and passionate. If
only he trusted her. If only she wasn't the enemy. If only his
heart didn't have a mind of its own.
When together they must merge their talents to fight the most
powerful forces in the galaxy, will trust win out, or will they
lose each other forever?
The much-awaited sequel to The Challenge and The Dare.
All Dora wants is to be the woman he loves . . .
All Zical wants is to complete his mission . . .
All the enemy wants is total annihilation . . .
Blocked by the limitations of her computer hardware, Dora has used
only her smarts, her humor, and her sinfully sexy voice to intrigue
Rystani warrior-pilot Zical. In order to experience human
sexuality-and consummate her love for him-she builds the perfect
female body to inhabit. Being human is more difficult and more
wonderful than Dora expected. She didn't expect the sensation of
touch to alter her emotions. Nor did she expect chocolate to taste
so good. Or love to be so complicated.
But for a Rystani star pilot, accepting Dora as a crew woman, never
mind a lover, is downright confusing. Even if Zical considered Dora
fully human-which he doesn't-his tragic past has made him swear off
falling in love. But as Dora's increasingly human allure becomes
hard to resist, a threat to the solar system sends them on a
dangerous mission to the very edge of the galaxy.
As Dora explores the full extent of what it means to love, can
Zical's sense of honor and his proud adherence to Rystani customs
ever let him give his heart to a woman who created herself only for
him? And as their enemies turn deadly, Dora and Zical must overcome
their pasts . . . if they hope to fight for all of their futures.

"Midnight Magic". Many years ago, a heartbroken magician used magic

heartbroken and lovelorn fall into it and find love and happiness.

Susan Kearney returns to the universe of The Challenge, this time
following the adventures of Dora. In the first book, Dora was the
sentient computer who is almost like family to the protagonists.
Now, Dora-whose computer mind is that of a capricious teenager,
except with access to all of the information ever put onto
disk-wants a body. She wants to be human. She wants to experience
feelings, not just catalogue them. And she wants to kiss Zical,
desperately. She transfers her computer mind into the body that she
believes Zical would find attractive-but she's still only sixteen.
And now she has to figure out how to work her clumsy human limbs,
how to walk without falling over, and how to deal with the strange
ache in her chest. It doesn't help that she and Zical are stranded
on a strange new planet (and she wasn't sup- posed to have followed
him!), and they don't have the use of their psychic powers...
