He would do anything to protect her, if only she’d let him.
Corporal Sienna Jade wasn’t given a choice about joining the mission to Unity. Seen as a troublemaker after reporting an assault by a senior officer, the army wanted her gone. Sienna resents the army for assigning her to Earth Ship Siren, and suspects the fleet’s Unity mission will fail. But others would do anything to escape Earth …
Alex Tariel knew his only chance to get a place on ES Siren was as a prisoner, so he stole water rations. As a former construction foreman, his skills make him a valuable prisoner on board, but still a prisoner unable to control his own life. Instead of keeping his head down, he gets involved in the fights set up for gambling privilege tokens, the only currency aboard ship among the prisoners.
Getting patched up by Corporal Jade might be the best thing that’s happened to Alex on the trip so far, but becoming her ship husband puts him between her and the lieutenant who tried to kill her for kicks on Earth. While Sienna tries to keep control of her feelings for Alex, Alex would do anything to protect her, if only she’d let him.
As ES Siren faces its first crisis, a little trust and love goes a long way.
Ok so we have Sienna who was forced to be on Siren journeying to a habitable planet that age really has no want to go. But since she made a company about her commanding officer while on Earth she did not get a choice. Then there is Alex, who made a logical choice to steal some water to be put in jail at the chance of being place on Siren. Alex didn’t have much of a life to live on Earth and wanted a second chance.
Well you would have guessed but that one that makes the demands is back. He is as hateful and ruthless as ever. This story is taking place during the same time frame as Yours to Uncover. You will want to make sure you read it first just so you know a little bit about the series. I enjoy the erotica in this one a little more because of Sienna being in control. She would have to since the last relationship left her a bit scared and she needed to work threw it.
You still get a great story with enough suspense that you do not feel it is just erotica. You have an aspect of SciFi because of it being in space, on a spaceship, in ether year 2202. We do learn more about waits for them on Solitaire and how long prisoners have to work off their sentences. That was interesting to read looking forward to Yours to Desire and finding about the sexmeth that was talked about in both books.
