SCORPION KING

Author(s): 

In this underwater adventure, LaCroix sets a scene that's totally believable yet completely otherworldly. A smooth-flowing storyline, appealing characters, conflict and romance make this an enjoyably quick and hot escape.

n 2307, the overcrowded conditions on Earth force humans to build Pacifica, an underwater city protected by a force field. Earthquakes now threaten, and Queen Naiya Pisces must rely on the Land-walkers to help her people survive. Captain Drake Scopillo hates water, but he agrees to lead a team of experts who will work together with Pacifica's team. There's instant attraction between him and the exotic queen, but Drake fears living underwater. Even worse problems await them. Someone else has their eye on the throne and will do anything to keep the lovers apart. (ELLORASCAVE.COM, dl $4.45)
