Krystina Merkos is reluctant to leave her home planet, but agrees it's best that her father doesn't have to concern himself with her safety while he fights a civil war.
But it's not all plain sailing. The captain wants to seduce her – and pirates want to sell her to the
murderous sect waging war on her father.
The journey on an Imperial warship becomes much more palatable when she discovers that Ben Paulsen, an old flame from her high school days, is a senior officer on the ship.
When the frigate is attacked by a pirate fleet intent on capturing Krys, she faces impossible choices. If she hands herself over to the pirates, she will die a painful death. If she doesn't, everyone will die.
Unless she and Ben can contrive a way out for them all.
Hi, I’m Greta van der Rol. I'm a writer, photographer, animal lover, and space nut. Most of my books are space opera with a dollop of romance - but I've written two paranormal novels featuring weretigers, and one historical fiction. I live with my husband not far from the beach in Queensland, Australia. When I’m not writing I take photographs of nature and animals, and now and then I do some cooking.
