About this ebook

Disguised as a boy

on a ship full of sex-crazed aliens...

What could possibly go wrong?

On the trail of her next big documentary, Joy boards a pirate ship under false pretenses. The hot alien captain with the washboard abs will make her female viewers go weak at the knees, and Joy wouldn't mind licking the Kantarellian rum right off his bulging copper muscles, herself.

Captain Kashatok isn't a man of rules, but the one thing he won't allow is a woman on his ship. His crewmen are immoral bastards, plus he needs to avoid triggering his own internal monster. When he can’t keep his eyes off the ship's new mechanic, he thinks he’s just protecting an innocent boy.

Except after Joy’s secret is exposed, her talent for fixing engines won't be enough to keep the crew in their place. Can she rely on Captain Kashatok to protect her? Or is he the most dangerous of them all?

Reader Promise: Steamy love scenes, dangerous aliens, and heart-pounding action with no cliffhangers and a guaranteed HEA. Intended for mature audiences.

*You can read this as a standalone, although you'll probably enjoy it more if you start with book one in the series, Rescued by Qaiyaan.

He's broken. She might just have the tools and the know-how to fix him. This is the second book in Mrs. Ley's new alien pirate series. If you liked Qaiyaan, you'll love this one too! Rather than a repeat or a direct take off of the last book, we get to go a whole new direction that then swings back and makes contact with the first book. Whereas Qaiyaan is pretty much a knight is rusted armor, Kashatok is definitely a true pirate, though far from 'evil'. Kashatok is crotchety and all around boorish for the first bit of the book, but he has his reasons and you come to love him more and more as he moves out of his haze of villainy. I think my favorite thing about the book is the interaction with the characters from the first installment. When I first started reading, I wasn't entirely sure it wasn't going to be one of those 'in the same universe but not connected' type of series. I'm happy to say, it isn't. The affection between Joy and Kashatok is very endearing and sweet. I really liked how she never backed down. Talk about courageous! Also, she's a mechanic. Who doesn't love a woman who knows how to wield a wrench? Maybe that's me projecting, but it was very nice to see a woman who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. I received an ARC copy for a review, and then purchased it anyways. It's that good. You know you want to.

Dang I don't have the next one. So much fun. I loved this just as much as the first part. yes I will be listening to it again. The narration made me see it. This book was given to me for free at my request from the publisher or author or narrator and I provided this unbiased voluntary review.
