Can love alone save the day? Award-winning author Linnea Sinclair returns with a vibrant interstellar thriller of romance and adventure in which two lovers are tested in the crucible of deep space, where there are only…Before her court-martial, Captain Chasidah “Chaz” Bergren was the pride of the Sixth Fleet. Now she’s a fugitive from the “justice” of a corrupt Empire. Along with her lover, the former monk, mercenary, and telepath Gabriel Ross Sullivan, Chaz hoped to leave the past light-years behind—until the news of her brother Thad’s arrest and upcoming execution for treason. It’s a ploy by Sully’s cousin Hayden Burke to force them out of hiding, and it works.With a killer targeting human females and a renegade gen lab breeding jukor war machines, Chaz and Sully already had their hands full of treachery, betrayal—not to mention each other. Throw in Chaz’s Imperial ex-husband, Admiral Philip Guthrie, and a Kyi-Ragkiril mentor out to seduce Sully, and not just loyalties but lives are at stake. For when Sully makes a fateful choice, changing their relationship forever, Chaz must also choose—between what duty demands and what her heart tells her she must do.

Whew, Shades of Dark was so much better than it's predecessor Gabriel's Ghost!I liked the story in Gabriel's Ghost, but there were a lot of minor issues with the writing and the characterization that Sinclair really improved upon in Shades of Dark.I thought Shades of Dark does a much better job of h...
After reading and enjoying the first book, Gabriel’s Ghost, in this series I was excited to read the sequel. Having now finished Shades of Dark, that excitement has soured. I will give credit to the fact that the plot-arc started in the first book is brought further in this work; the goals set fo...
This Dock Five series book had A LOT going on with the different factions, the betrayals, the inner conflict, the mission, etc. It looked like it was going to get a little kinky too. The ending is not what I was expecting and it didn't give closure to Sully and Chaz's relationship. I'm going to h...
