Megan is strangely surreal as she floats in the ocean, fighting her eminent death. Her history with men is littered with failure but she never anticipated death as the final end. Her latest boyfriend turned out to be the worst of the bunch. After he convinced her to join their finances she finds herself bumped off their celebratory boat ride while he rides into the sunset with all she owns. But wait! Is that light heaven coming for her? Could she really be going up, instead of down?
The light isn't heaven but is instead the beginning of a new life for Megan. She's managed to be scooped up by an acquisitions specialist from another planet. Megan calls him a pirate since his plan is to sell her off first chance he gets. Her lack of an oral filter is what killed most of her relationships so she sees no reason to monitor herself now. She lets him have it verbally. What she doesn't know is her behavior intrigues her captor since everyone he knows fears him. As her tirades continue she endears herself and he finds himself drawn to her in a sexual way. Why?
Guilty Pleasure Alert! Oh my God I adored this story. Since I too lack an oral filter (I speak my mind without restraint) I instantly identified with Megan. Her dialogue and diatribes were delightful and her observations about Tren's anatomy hilarious. I can't go into too much detail without ruining the story for you but this is a must read if you like a plucky heroine and a big scary man who is really a marshmallow for the woman he loves. These two were made for each other, it just takes them a while to figure it out. And we the lucky readers get to follow every step of the way. And there's a sequel! Kudos to the author for an original and well done story.
Abducted by a space pirate, she fights the temptation to let him plunder her goods.
A boyfriend's attempted murder leaves Megan floundering in the ocean. Sinking without hope, the bright light she sees in the night sky isn't her doorway to heaven, but rather the beginning of her accidental abduction by a space pirate. While thankful of his rescue, Megan stays true to form and just can't keep her mouth shut, even when he keeps threatening to kill her--or auction her off to the highest bidder. Even odder, despite her decision to not get involved with her wickedly hot captor, she can't help craving his touch.
Tren retired from his job as a mercenary so he could enjoy life, but he never counted on the boredom of normalcy. The acquisition of rare items has somewhat filled the void, but his accidental abduction of an outspoken earthling, who doesn't know when to shut up, turns his life upside. Her fiery spirit draws him while at the same time drives him insane. Struggling with his urges, he must decide-- throttle her barbarian neck or ravish her delectably lush body?
Despite what his heart tries to tell him, he's determined to sell her to the highest bidder even as he seduces her body. However, despite his best intentions, he discovers he can't let her go. And when a foe from his past thinks to steal her, he'll do anything to get her back.
