The Bonds of Orion is the fifth book in the Loralynn Kennakris series. It will be available in 2017.
The war is going well: recent victories have Halith in retreat. Now recuperated and promoted, Lieutenant Commander Loralynn Kennakris is on leave, giving her a chance to do a few things she doesn’t have much experience with: resting, relaxing . . . and falling in love.
Mariwen Rathor was once an interstellar celebrity. The victim of a terrorist plot, she’s been living as a recluse after undergoing years of intense rehabilitation that suppressed most of her memories. But she’s never forgotten Kris. And Kris has never forgotten her. Meeting again after so long apart, Kris is stunned to find Mariwen offering her something she’s never had before: a home.
But life is never that simple. Sent deep into Halith space with Rafe Huron to rescue a hero long thought to be dead, Kris stays behind to save the mission and her team. Now, to save the woman she loves, Mariwen must do the impossible: take on the Halith Empire. Alone.
Or die trying.
Or something much worse.
