The clock is ticking for Passion. Because of her family's financial crisis, her father plans to sell her into slavery. Her only hope lies in fixing a beat up spaceship and escaping.
When a ship crash lands almost on top of her, a new solution presents itself. In exchange for repairs, they must take her with them. What she doesn't realize is the handsome, arrogant man who agrees to the offer is Dragon, son of the Emperor of the galaxy.
Along with his loyal bodyguard Hawk, the two show her pleasure beyond anything she's ever known. But when a twist of fate lands her as Dragon's slave, she's not sure whether to fight for her freedom, or surrender to their seductive caresses.
In this world, the Emperor has a chokehold on the galaxy, and those who disobey are brutally punished. Among the long list of things forbidden are most sexual acts. Passion's never really cared about the rules, so she, Dragon, and Hawk allow themselves to explore forbidden pleasures together. When Passion first realizes she's a slave to Dragon, she throws a fit, because all she wants is her freedom. It's fun to see Passion and Dragon butt heads over everything, and have poor Hawk try to mediate between the two without getting sucked into the arguments. I enjoyed the story here, and was sad to see it end. This book has a few too many exclamation points for my liking, but there weren't really enough to suck me out of the story. Overall, it was a good read.
