And the blurb. It’s still unofficial. So it may change:
Captain Chae Beyon is a hustler; a mercenary pilot; a wounded woman who prefers her men to be easily thrown aside.
Daned Traern is a first-caste Ladaian bound by tradition and DNA to protect his race. He’s willing to align himself with the hot space captain if she’ll get him home in time to ensure the right candidate is crowned—and so prevent a bloody war.
Disguised as her sex toy, he’s erotically bound to her through living gold, alien tech designed to increase pleasure. But when Daned frees himself, their passion only increases. A passion that risks binding them together permanently.
But there’s more at stake than their need, and Daned convinces Chae to help him. She is dragged into a world of insane princes, hidebound tradition and sentient stones, as hired killers hound them across the quadrant.
And that’s just the start of her day…
