In a universe torn apart by civil war, a warrior and a slave must fight for their lives and a love that may destroy them both. After five years behind enemy lines, Captain Cyani has to complete one final mission before she can return to Azra-a planet ruled by a sisterhood of celibate warriors. Along the way she finds a prisoner, chained and beaten-but radiating feral power and an unbroken spirit. For years Soren has endured torture as his captors leeched his very essence, a unique hormone then sold as a sexual narcotic in the shadow trade. Now he has been freed from slavery by a beautiful warrior woman with radiant blue eyes. After years in bondage, Soren's hormones are so unbalanced that he will die if he does not mate with a woman. Can Cyani be the woman he needs to survive, or will this forbidden bond destroy them?

This was an interesting read. While a lot was predictable it was a fun story to read. I look forward to the next one.
When I picked this up a few days ago, the blurb kind of gave me some pause. I was thinking I didn't want to read about some mission, I wanted us to get to the good stuff right away. And I was not disappointed. Cyani is getting ready to pull out of enemy territory when her scout fox, Vicca, locates a...
I don't often like futuristic stories, but this one was very engaging. It dragged a bit toward the beginning (I'd say after the first few chapters) but then it picked up again and I was totally sucked in. Toward the end I started to get frustrated with the heroine and her overblown sense of duty, bu...
