To complete her research, she must leave home for the first time and travel to the most dangerous planet in the sector.

Rayce has given up treasure hunting, but his dream of renovating a starport is threatened by a lack of funds—funds Tru is offering. All he has to do is deny his attraction to his cool client long enough to complete one last mission.
