"A highly sensual intergalactic romp"

Tabitha is a new recruit on an intergalactic police cruiser ship. Unfortunately, her first encounter with Captain Keer, the commander of the ship, is less than flattering. Since her first impression was not favorable with Captain Keer, Tabitha is ignored and disregarded. When an important mission to gather data about a slave trader is assigned to the crew, Tabitha decides to help, but getting herself caught by the slaver trader in question. Her only hope is that Captain Keer will find her and release her from her torment, both mental and physical.

I liked Tabitha. She reminds me of myself: motivated, a bit naïve, and a lot clumsy. Captain Keer is incredibly stoic and reserved. Together, they match well. I did not completely understand how the characters could fall for each other, especially since they had not spoken much, but I give the author the benefit of the doubt that maybe I missed something. Or it was love at first sight.

Overall, Punishing Tabitha is a thoroughly enjoyable short story. I can only fault the story in that I wished Keer had more time to tell the story in his perspective earlier on in the story. Since he explains himself later, this fault is minor. The rest of the story is humorous and extremely sensual. A great short story!

Sergeant Tabitha Bryce just wants to make a name for herself. But as the youngest junior officer in her crew, she doesn’t get much of a chance to shine. Taking a gamble, she stages a daring one-woman sting. But her plan backfires and she finds herself being stripped naked and sold as a sex slave. To her mortification, it is her stoic, unobtainable captain who buys her freedom.

Her new master, Captain Keer, has been the commanding officer aboard Pride of Justice for years and has never lost his cool—until a junior officer with dreams of glory is placed aboard his ship. Now he must get Tabitha out of the mess she’s gotten herself into. But he doesn’t count on the bonus that comes with his new “slave”—a thin silvery cord wrapped around Tabitha’s most intimate areas that won’t come off without some special attention from her new master. Now he must try to free her from permanent sexual bondage to the love knots without losing his heart.
