DEDICATION: --
COVER TEXT:
Earthmen had first landed on the planet Dare three hundred years before, but they were still bound by the same standards of snobbery and fear.
Yet Jack Cage, eldest son of a wealthy human farmer, found himself strangely drawn to the native inhabitants of the planet, spectacularly beautiful humanoids whose rich, magnificent hair grew down to the base of the spine. To consort with one meant death, he realized. But why? Was it merely a matter of prejudice? And what were humans doing on the planet anyway?
These were questions which plagued Jack, and which were avoided by his fellow Earthmen, but he felt they were questions which could be answered by one of these sultry, glamorous aliens - if only he could win her trust.
But did he dare?
(Quartet Books)
