After defecting from the Star Union 11 years ago, Starship Captain Lara Soto is now the leader of the free Chimerans. Her only regret is the intense young officer she left behind. When Terra's S.U.S. Interlace goes missing with her brother Rafael on board, she has to push aside the pain of her betrayal and team up with her old love once again.
Commodore Mitch Yoshida has never stopped thinking about the woman who deserted him. He's also witnessed firsthand the Terran discrimination Lara foretold, from sequestering Chimerans on starships to enforcing indentured military service.
With Rafael and the Interlace crew held prisoner, Lara and Mitch must travel to a whole new dimension to secure their release. Will they be able to resist their long-denied attraction and complete their rescue mission?
I haven't enjoyed a book as much in a long time.
It's a light SF book with not a lot of scientific background but it is a very enjoyable book. What makes it enjoyable is the romance without detailed porn-like sex. This is a sci-fi romance that can be enjoyed by all ages. I loved the plot.
