Confident in her abilities, Detja steals at her discretion. Raised by Adan, a Katanic shape shifter, she has seen it all. Her adopted father is feared by all, yet he loves her. So when he sells her to her latest mark, for one credit, she’s horrified. Zarek is a Coletti, one of the most feared warlord’s in the galaxy. And he’s focused on her as his mate. Determining him suitable, Adan makes a deal for her since he will be otherwise occupied and unable to protect her. So begins a chase across the galaxy, man after woman. Hunter after prey. Evenly matched, who could possibly be the winner?
Full of acerbic and at times dark humor, this was a great read. Detja and Zarek are the parents of the hero from "Just My Luck." Telling the tale of how they came to be a couple was appreciated and enjoyed.
Detja’s attitude gets her far, but the direction is usually that of trouble. Loaded with weapons at all times, her attitude and manner were entertaining every step of the way. Using her diminutive stature as a tool, she manages more mayhem that a group of large warriors. This not only intrigues Zarek it attracts him. Having lost two mates prior, he is very interested in her ability to take care of herself and fight by his side. A courtship like no other, Detja’s stubbornness meets its match and she goes down fighting. But she does fall and she’s not alone. A great entertaining read.
Stealing from a warlord and giving him the one finger salute as I made my getaway was not the brightest thing I’d ever done. Okay, it was an incredibly stupid stunt.
Did I mention that this particular Coletti warlord is the most feared in the entire galaxy? That Zarek’s the ultimate predator and even the other warlords are scared spitless of him? That he never ever stops until he either captures or kills his prey?
Yeah, I have the big, bad after me and all because of one little finger. Okay and a Ditrim crystal the size of my fist. Am I worried? Of course, only an idiot doesn’t fear a very angry Coletti warlord. But, I am very good at what I do. Bad news is, so is Zarek.
