As a space pirate, Val's job is to “commandeer” enough loot to help feed her clan, the Blues. When their latest raid is interrupted by the Surebloods, a rival pirate clan, she's furious. Determined to tell their leader, Dake, exactly how she feels, she's stopped short by the rugged handsomeness of the Sureblood's leader.
One night of passion ends in disaster when her father is murdered, and all signs point to the Surebloods. However, Dake is captured before he can clear his clan's name. After five years imprisonment, the only thing Dake wants to do is get back to the fiery redhead he spent one incredible night with, and work on uniting their two clans.
But can their mistrust be set aside long enough to work together? For there are enemies lurking in the shadows, determined to see war brew between the clans. And they don't have any quelms about using the one thing both Val and Dake cherish about the most to crush their spirits...their son.
Susan Grant is one of my favorite sci-fi romance authors, and this book just proves my faith has not been misplaced. She had a knack for seamlessly blending intrigue, suspense, and romance to tell a story that leaves you on the edge of the seat. I've often found myself swearing at the characters, wondering how they could be so dense at times. The world building makes me feel like I'm riding along with the characters, exploring the galaxy with them. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes not only science fiction, but a wonderful love story, as well.
