**2005 PEARL NOMINEE - BEST EROTIC ROMANCE**
In an embattled, sexually-charged new world of the future, the adventure begins...
Beautiful Trinity Yeager's mission: join Nathan August's star-hopping team of mercenary soldiers. With one condition: Trinity must prove her resilience as a lover for him and his first officer, Sebastian Cole.
Trinity not only sees Nathan's bet. She raises it...
Now, from galactic dens of depravity to far-reaching planets of dominant females and strapping male slaves, Trinity, Sebastian, and Nathan join forces, risk flesh and blood, and push the boundaries of erotic adventure in order to protect, honor, and service.
Trinity Yeager faces an unhappy life on a colony of religious zealots who make the Taliban look conservative. Her only chance for happiness is to convince a mercenary starship captain to accept her as a member of his crew, giving her the transport off-world she needs. But Captain Nathan August is skeptical that Trin's situation is as bad as she claims. He decides to test her. The only position available, he tells her, is that of his sexual toy. He expects her to back down, but Trin calls his bluff-even when he tells her his first officer will join him on the "test drive." Trin, Nathan and first officer Sebastian Cole all get a ride they'll never forget. But just how far are they willing to go?
