REVIEW

"Fast action Sci-fi worth reading again!"

In family military tradition, Chasidah 'Chaz' Bergren was a dedicated captain of an interstellar patrol ship. The shock of a railroaded court-martial and sentence of life imprisonment on Moabar had barely set in when she received an offer from a nemesis she thought was dead.

Gabriel "Sully" Sullivan was not a ghost, but an intergalactic pirate on a mission of mercy. Sully needs Chaz's help uncovering a deadly plot involving high council members of the empire. Their survival skills and determination are put to the test and on a more personal level, Chaz's trust and growing affection is tested time and time again as one-by-one she learns Gabriel's secrets.

Sully is an intriguing mix of authority and power with insecurity that grabs your heart. Chaz is sassy and pragmatic and is comfortable with her feminine disposition. Sully's friend Ren, Chaz's ex-husband Philip and her brother Thad may be secondary characters, but they are not secondary in this quest. The subtle weaving of events into a complex but easily followed plot makes this a book for your keeper shelf.

SUMMARY

A life-and-death battle where giving up the ghost has a whole new meaning...

After a decade of cruising interstellar patrol ships, former Captain Chasidah Bergren, onetime Pride of the Sixth Fleet, finds herself court-martialed for a crime she didn't commit -- and shipped off to a remote prison planet from which no one ever escapes. But when she kills a brutal guard in an act of self-defense, someone even more dangerous emerges from the shadows.

Gabriel Sullivan -- alpha mercenary, smuggler, and rogue -- is supposed to be dead. Yet now this seductive ghost from Chaz's past is offering her a ticket to freedom -- for a price. Someone in the Empire is secretly breeding jukors: vicious and uncontrollable killing machines that have long been outlawed. Gabriel needs Chaz to help him stop the practice before it decimates imperial space. For Chaz, it's a matter of survival. For Sully it means facing the truth about who -- and what -- he really is. The mission means putting their lives on the line -- but the tensions that heat up between them may be the riskiest part of all.
