Can love alone save the day? Award-winning author Linnea Sinclair returns with a vibrant interstellar thriller of romance and adventure in which two lovers are tested in the crucible of deep space.
Before her court-martial, Captain Chasidah Chaz Bergren was the pride of the Sixth Fleet. Now she's a fugitive from the justice of a corrupt Empire. Along with her lover, the former monk, mercenary, and telepath Gabriel Ross Sullivan, Chaz hoped to leave the past light-years behind - until the news of her brother Thad's arrest and upcoming execution for treason. It's a ploy by Sully's cousin Hayden Burke to force them out of hiding, and it works.
With a killer targeting human females and a renegade gen lab breeding jukor war machines, Chaz and Sully already had their hands full of treachery, betrayal - not to mention each other. Throw in Chaz's Imperial ex-husband, Admiral Philip Guthrie, and a Kyi-Ragkiril mentor out to seduce Sully, and not just loyalties but lives are at stake. For when Sully makes a fateful choice, changing their relationship forever, Chaz must also choose between what duty demands and what her heart tells her she must do.

“Mixes space opera with romance ... the smashing climax will please everyone.” (Publishers Weekly)
This is book two that continues the story told in book one of Sully and Chas. This series really is incredibly well written, with a lot of action, solid sci fi, and just the right amount of romance. So many authors get romantic sci fi wrong - this series really is the standard for the genre.
The narration was fine - I just wish she had not done accents (Sully had something that was a cross between British, SA, and Australian - really weird and off-putting, especially when no one else had one like it).
The original book, and story had a great scifi theme. Some sexual connotation, but still adventure. In this book, the author spent most of the time on a sexual theme. I had a hard time enjoying a scifi book, when it kept jumping into a romance novel.
