Présentation de l'éditeur
Darsey Ice never thought her first trip past Jupiter would claim the lives of her crew. But then she hadn’t expected to become the first person to make contact with aliens either.
Kidnapped, enslaved and lost on the Outer Rim of a mighty civilization light-years from Earth, the only person she can turn to is her enigmatic new owner. A dishonored outcast, he is just as alone as Darsey. Exiled by his people and struggling to survive, the last thing he wants is a rebellious primitive as a slave. She complicates his efforts to hide a dangerous secret and to complete a quest that is likely to claim both their lives. They will only survive if they can find enough trust to forge an unwanted alliance.
A science-fiction love story of alien romance, between a leading lady who packs a punch and her charismatic owner with a secret quest.
Biographie de l'auteur
The Casey Lea partnership began in 1990, with the arrival of Emma Casey Frost, first daughter of Shelley Lea and Gary. Although Emma was a very precocious child, it took another fifteen years before she began working with her mother. The result of that collaboration was a book. IceFlight is a brand new arrival in the sci-fi/romance genre and the first part of a trilogy, The Iron Altar. The second book is set to hit the shelves in late 2013, and another series set in the IceFlight universe is already under way. Shelley Lea (pronounced 'lee') was born on a snowy June day, near the bottom of the world, in Invercargill, New Zealand. Reluctant to supply a date of birth, she would rather claim several decades of maturity, but only a few days of actual wisdom. Those decades have covered a range of jobs, a couple of degrees (including English Lit), one great husband, plenty of travel, two gorgeous daughters, several scatty cats and one idiotic dog. They've also included an on-going struggle to put pen to paper in any spare second. This has led to some dire poetry, some eyebrow raising children's stories and finally to something resembling a novel. This languished in a sadly disjointed and hand written form until... Emma Casey inherited her mother's love of books and the ability to string two sentences together (sometimes three). She proved to be the missing link in trying to actually finish a manuscript. Younger, savvier and able to turn on a computer without causing it to explode, she picked up the book and ran with it. Emma is also studying graphic design and happily provides Casey Lea's cover artwork.
