Captain Tess Bailey and her crew of Robin Hood-like thieves are desperate and on the run. Pursued by a vicious military general who wants them dead or alive, Tess has to decide if she can trust Shade Ganavan, a tall, dark, and much-too-appealing stranger with ambiguous motivations.
Shade Ganavan had oodles of arrogance, oodles of charm, and oodles of something that made me want to kick him in the nuts.
What Tess and Shade don’t know about each other might get them killed…unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other before it's too late for them both.

“Tess is a tough-as-nails on the outside heroine who has overcome her pain with the biggest heart on any of the planets in the galaxy. Shade is content to let Tess call the shots, though he isn’t afraid to challenge her. Together, they are breathtakingly hot.”
