"Sprite-sized Captian Trilby shows Captain 'Emperor' Rhis a whole new world"

Trilby Elliot's upbringing as a street orphan helped make her a tough Independent starship captain. The past 5 years she has worked hard and has everything she needs -- except parts to keep her ship flying. That is until a fighter craft crashes on the small planet where she is doing repairs. Finder's keepers... the law of the streets and the rule of salvage means she now has what she needs to repair her ship and more. Unfortunately the 'more' she wants to keep includes the surviving pilot. What is she to do with this attractive but arrogant mystery man?

Rhis is astounded to find this sprite-like woman captaining an antiquated cargo ship. He is even more surprised at her talents and courage. On his own ship he has been nicknamed 'the Emperor' for his demanding ways and he is enjoying having someone who knows him only as Rhis. Unfortunately, he must do whatever it takes to get back to his ship with the information he has in an attempt to prevent an Intergalactic war. If that includes hijacking her ship and forcing her to join him on his world, all the better as he is finding she has becoming a necessity in his life.

The inevitable changes in the relationship between Trilby and Rhis once he is again in control on his ship are explored as well as the danger they now must face. The worlds and politics that shaped the characters are woven within the story and the decisions made by secondary characters are an essential and intriguing part of the plot. As the adventure builds and the battle becomes a joint effort you will find yourself involved in the struggle and after the victory, wishing to remain in their universe.

This well-balanced story will please even the most discriminating reader. FINDERS KEEPERS has a strong romance plot as well as the high standard of adventure and suspense expected from a science fiction story. Others must support my opinion as FINDERS KEEPERS won the 2001 P.E.A.R.L. Award for Romantic Science Fiction; 2001 Dorothy Parker Award and was 2001 Sapphire Award Finalist for Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Book for 2001

Be careful what you wish for. You might get it...

Her ship's in shambles, her boyfriend's dumped her and she's frankly out of funds. Captain Trilby Elliot hopes her luck has changed when a high-tech fightercraft crash lands at her repair site.

Finders keepers. She can sell the ship as salvage, pocket the profits. Except for one small problem: the pilot, Rhis, is still alive and intent on commandeering her ship. And another much larger problem: someone very powerful and very important wants Trilby Elliot dead.
