An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a

dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.

For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.

Once Upon a Galaxy . . .

Zana Starchild is on a mission to restore her tribe’s livestock and save herself from one

more meal of kelp. Sure, it’s technically illegal to visit Old Earth, but to a rim rat like Zana,

galactic laws are really just guidelines. Her wrecked starship just means she’ll need to use her

backup plan to get off the abandoned world, an old Earth legend her uncle passed down to her.

Pulled from a relaxing shower, across the galaxy to Old Earth, Galactic Marshall Kyle

Kepler finds himself naked and marooned with a quirky rim rat. Zana’s broken more laws than

Kyle can count, and he plans to arrest her, just as soon as he can find transport off the planet and

a pair of pants.

A junk heap of a starship, a magical tree, and a roving gang of mutant kangaroos are just

the beginning of rollicking intergalactic journey filled with laughs, love, and adventure.

When series collide: Between Venus and Mars is not only set the multi-dimensional worlds of

the Soul Mate Tree legend, but also ties into my Hearts in Orbit series, a futuristic universe filled

with starships, aliens, and new technologies. And, of course, romance. The Soul Mate Tree

project offered me a great way to play with some new characters and further develop my

universe, while partnering with some of the best authors in the business.

The Hearts in Orbit universe is a place where galactic marshals keep the peace in the

cosmopolitan Core Worlds as well as the wild-west type rim world planets. While this book

works as a standalone, and you don’t have to have read any of the others, I consider it Hearts in

Orbit 2.5, fitting nicely between Pirates of the Dark Nebula and my soon-to- be-released Hearts in

Orbit 3 novel Captives of the Kratzen.
