Garrett Heskan isn’t sure which is worse… going to war against the Hollarans while commanding an untested starship, or reporting to Lt. Commander Durmont.
Lieutenant Heskan knows his escort destroyer, BRS Kite, must protect the fleet carriers assigned to Durmont’s escort squadron, but with his ill-prepared ship, the squadron’s arrogant commander and the fledgling nature of stellar aviation, Heskan’s work is cut out for him. What starts out as a simple Brevic attack into the Hollaran Commonwealth soon becomes a fight for survival in a series of battles that could alter the balance of power in the known universe. Conflicts abound in No Way to Start a War, between fleets, leaders, and cultures.

Trish Ackerly never expected to cross paths with Ian Rafferty again, but when she spots the former bully of her childhood years through her bakery window, she thinks she may just have been given the best Christmas gift ever: the opportunity to finally give Ian the comeuppance he deserves.
But clearly she does not have a knack for this whole revenge thing, because before she can make good on her plans, Trish gets inadvertently drawn into Ian’s life in an unexpected way that lets her see just how different the man is from the boy he used to be. In fact, much to her astonishment, she actually starts to like the guy.
