Publisher's Summary

A new space pirate adventure from NYT and USAT best-selling author Michelle M. Pillow.

Dragon-shifter Lochlann left home to avoid a war in which he didn’t believe. Now, as captain of The Conqueror, in charge of a misfit crew, all he wants is to return without the label of coward. He’s been offered one chance at redemption: find Margot, a noblewoman’s missing sister. The only problem is, the woman disappeared years ago, and his closest lead is a stunningly beautiful look-alike droid crafted in her image. Alexis is programed to be everything he could ever desire, but getting her to reveal her secrets proves to be a true challenge for this alpha male.

Being a base model pleasure droid isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. Alexis can’t remember a time when she wasn’t the property of others. Multiple surgeries and endless tests have amounted to a life not worth living. When a pirate crew visits her facility, she sneaks onto their ship. Desperate not to be returned to her owners, she strikes a deal with the alluring captain: pretend to be Margot in exchange for freedom.

A Qurilixen World novel.

More sci-fi than romance

Listened to audio narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo. Captain Lochlann and his crew are on a mission to find a missing noblewoman's sister who was sold by her father to pay off a debt. If he can find her he can return to his planet and have his honor restored. Although he's been searching for years he hasn't had any luck. Alexis is a base model pleasure droid, who's filled with memories of torturous experimentation. When Lochlann's crew visits her facility she sneaks on their ship, but the medical mafia is going to want their droid back. Alexis looks like the long lost sister Lochlann's been hunting, she's human but she's filled with a lot of tech and seems to glitch a lot. I'm not sure if it was the narration or the story itself but it came across as very choppy and hard to follow. Alexis is a human with a lot of android parts but she comes across as more android and I didn't feel any romantic connection between her and Lachlann. The hero is a shifter but the tone of the book is almost entirely sci-fi, the shifter part of the story is almost non-existent. I had expected a more blended book with both aspects highlighted. I haven't read any of the Qurilixen books and maybe that would have given me a different perspective on this story but it was just an okay read for me.

Loved it!

This is the third book in this series. I loved this one the storyline was great and the characters lively. It went fast and kept my attention throughout. The Narrator did a wonderful job made the characters seem so lifelike. Would definitely listen to more of this authors work.

Makes you want to be a space Pirat too

Or to find your dragon shifter mate out in space. Definitely makes you want to hunt down the pleasure droid company yourself to kick some butt!

A winning narration!

Another winning narration. He brings to life with every word. Lachlan needs to find Margo in order to be allowed back on his home planet. When Rick brings a pleasure robot named Alexis on board their ship she happens to look like Margo. They soon discover that she is human and was with Margo when she died. They are being chased by the corporation that wants Alexis back. Plenty of adventure!!

Another fantastic listen

Book 3 in the series . Even though it’s book 3 it can be listened as a stand-alone. Michelle knows how to grab the listeners attention till the very end . Michelle writes strong characters. Both the hero’s and heroine characters are strong , know their mind and you will grow to love them. The heroine got rescued by the hero . Heroine is Margot. Hero is Lochlann. Margot is in a bad situation, her father put her up as a bet . Her father lost the bet and now she’s on a pleasure ship . Lochlann sees her and he knows he needs to take her back home , to the planet that he ran of from . As he saves her , he takes her back to the ship things get interesting between Margo and Lochlann . The prophesy that was revealed in book 1 comes true . Michael performance in this one is fantastic. He did this one as strong as the other ones .

THis series is getting better and better

I love this series and this book is great! I loved the interactions between Alexis and the crew and mostly between Alexis and Lochlann! Her robotic actions are fabulous but she becomes more as we go along and this makes the whole great! The diversity of the crew and their characters is brought out in this story with the danger as a a result of Alexis being on board but it also shows their solidarity as a crew! A great book to listen to and the reader is good!

Another Space Lord finds Love

You really can't go wrong with any Michelle M. Pillow book. The narrator does an amazing job with changing voices by character. This unique story has twists and turns and will not disappoint. Not every happy ending is paved upon rose petals and Alexis ,the main female character, definitely has had a hard life.

Really enjoyable

Having read several of the Quirlixen world books before, I was sure that this tale would not disappoint. The story was well written from the start to the end. The recording was well presented and easy to listen to. Severally a really enjoyable listen.
