"Hot, fun, futuristic read!"
Gaelyn has bounty hunting in her blood. Generations of men
in her family have been bounty hunters, and Gaelyn is no
exception. Even though there aren't many women in the
profession, Gaelyn is well trained and has proven herself.
Now that Gaelyn has a ship of her own, it will be much
easier for her to track down and capture her bounties. No
longer will she have to wait on public transportation. She
still can't believe she won the sweet little ship in a game
of cards, but she's not complaining. Of course, getting to
Quaoar is much easier now. Not that she really wants to be
there, but it is where she tracked her latest contract.
With any luck at all, she's managed to send Reese—a quite
handsome Trondite who has managed to win some of her
contracts—to Jupiter. At least she hopes he went to
Jupiter. After he won her last contract, thereby depriving
her of half a year's pay, she doesn't want him winning this
one too. So when she gets to the bar the squeed at the dock
referred her to, she is not at all pleased to find Reese
there. And not only has he lost his ship, but his weapons
and he's broke. So they bargain and finally come to an
agreement. The fact Gaelyn has always been attracted to
Reese doesn't have any bearing on her allowing him to stay
in her room and agreeing to work with him.
Will the two of them be able to find and capture the
creature they're after? Or will they find something even
more important to the two of them?
CHASING BOOTY is a hot, fun futuristic read. Shannon Leigh
proves her talent once again as she takes on a new genre
and totally masters it. Gaelyn is a tough as nails woman
and doesn't back down from a challenge. Reese is pure alpha
male, but Gaelyn is up to the challenge of taking him on.
The action is non-stop, the danger is very real, the world
building is perfect and this all makes for a very hot,
enjoyable read. This is one you don't want to miss.

When cops can’t catch the most-wanted criminals, they hire Gaelyn. She comes from a long line of bounty hunters, including her father, uncle, and grandfather. Extensive training in weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, and adverse conditions have seasoned her into a formidable opponent against any contracted hit, whether male, female, alien, or human. She has little fear of the unknown and thrives on adventure.
Only one other hunter matches her status—Reese, a Trøndite from the small planet of Sør-Trøndalag in the Capricornus Sector. And the man has a knack for stealing her contracts. Both cunning and gorgeous, the mix doesn’t seem quite fair. But attractiveness holds little power over money. Reese had beaten Gaelyn out of a half-year’s pay a scarce three months ago, and she will be damned if he outwits her again.
Thinking she’s duped Reese back onto Jupiter, Gaelyn isn’t too happy when she runs into him on Quaoar at the Blue Moon, an authentic hole-in-the-wall bar tucked at the end of a narrow alley in what would be considered the rough part of town; just the place to find her contracted hit. But Reese not only has the information she needs to find her mark, he also has a business proposal that’s too tempting to pass up. And a partnership with Reese just might prove rewarding in a way Gaelyn never expects...
