Starvan

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
When a starvan ran from his wedding, nets came out all over human space. They translated it as "prince of investment." Even some of his own people had forgotten what it meant.

The Shadow Syndic thought they could use a starvan as bait for a trap, but his loved friend was still alive. The top man thought human space was his. There is only one true king! The dragon king! More

About Sharon L Reddy

I write science fiction romance, but it's the literary definition of romance. Swashbuckle, Baby, in "white tie and tails." High romantic fantasies, million word mysteries, family sagas, statesmen, gurus and wise immortals. Loving dads, sons and brothers, and of course, the women who understand and appreciate them. High fashion and landscape design. Materials and art, the books are built to be read very fast, specifically for the way women visualize. Research on the soap operas of the fifties, trends in international populist (fan) fiction, technological development, and above all, long-term entertainment value. It has to be good in reruns. The intent is create a body of work that's just fun to read, in spurts or bursts over decades. Ethics, responsibility, nobless oblige, the power of money, the use of prestige. I write good guys win. Period. They're fantasies for women. Men with lots of muscle say, "I love you," a lot.

Most of what is currently published was written in the first decade, 1991-1999, before Mother Nature changed my personal definition of "mature audience." I hope you'll remain with me as I and my work mature and enjoy the second decade of my work now being published, as well.

I've lived many places and visited far more. My current residence is on a high mesa in New Mexico, in the United States, where I am engaged in a habitat restoration project.

Explanation of the Pilots Group:
Some of these works have been sitting on my hard drive close to twenty years and they're no fun for anyone just sitting there. They're exactly what they've been titled, pilots, like for a TV series. It is my intent and hope that other writers will choose to continue the adventures of the characters. There are only three restrictions. Don't kill off my heroes, don't make good guys bad guys and give my story credit if you publish. Yes, you may publish and make money on your stories. I loved reading and writing fan fiction, but the limitations on it could be frustrating, so... Have fun with these works that specifically don't have them.

Review by: Owl Eye Press on Oct. 30, 2012 :
I was informed by the author this book was meant to be read fast. I didn’t understand the statement until I put it down and picked it back up a few weeks later, to read while enjoying a glass of wine. (allows the mind to relax and soak everything in without a need to consciously analyze) I quickly realized the brilliant dialog NEEDS to be read fast. If it’s read slowly with the intent to digest the meaning you will lose the well set amusement of the characters.
And what characters! This sci-fi adventure is geared towards women - not to say men won’t enjoy it, but with the romance element they may find it not to their liking. I truly enjoyed the emotional world set up by the author. Love is a universal language spoken without restriction or judgment of others.
The visuals created are sometimes wordy, but the pictures painted within the mind are vibrant, fun, and entertaining. Several times I laughed outright.
***Bonus treat*** I was what I thought to be halfway through the book when I realized there are TWO novels in this download! For the price of one, you get to continue the journey immediately.
(This ebook was given to me from the author for my entertainment pleasure.)
