emotional and gripping, Radiant Fire is told in the spirit of dashing
adventure and the language of the current-day female warrior. The story
contains strafing wit, a mindless helping of... More > sexual indulgence, the
airborne violence of war and the charged energy of two people being
held apart by circumstances beyond their control. This tale propels the
reader toward its ultimate conclusion with all the captivation and
enchantment of a runaway train.
Shelley Baker’s mother is killed by a drunken driver, the young woman
dedicates herself to her father and to personal excellence. What
