Sylvis Trasker is captain of one of the galaxy's premiere luxury cruise ships. But when her ship is boarded by pirates, her boring life sailing the rich and famous around the wealthiest system in the galactic core becomes more exciting than she expected. These aren't just any pirates—they're Jardan, huge alien warriors known for their prowess both on the battlefield and in the bedroom. And their heavily muscled and roguishly handsome captain, Kash Dra'sten, is the worst of the bunch. Sylvis immediately hates his arrogant posturing, but his panty-melting smile and captivating wit make her body hum with desire.
Captain Kash Dra'sten is having a spell of bad luck. Their last few raids netted them next to nothing, and his crew is clamoring for a big payday. After they leave the safety of the outer rim to capture a luxury cruise ship, their plan to make a quick getaway takes an unexpected turn. They discover that the fiery human female captaining the vessel is the daughter of a wealthy duke with ties to the Tirinva royal court, and his crew demands they take her for ransom. Dra'sten knows that if he refuses, it will be mutiny for sure. It's not long before the tiny human's wit and courage—not to mention her beauty and her luscious curves—both amuse and excite him. But when he learns the truth about her family's business and the dangerous past she fled, he knows he must protect her from both his mutinous crew and her venomous father. And the only way to do that is to mate her. But it isn't easy to mate a feisty human female who hates your guts. Even for a Jardan pirate, who's used to taking what he wants...
