When space freighter pilot Calen Macleef accidentally wins Larissa “Bit” Earnest in a lucky hand of poker, his main concern is what his gruff and uncompromising brother, Jack, will say about it. Jack Macleef is the captain of the ship in a world where space travel has only recently become the norm and space piracy abounds.
Painful memories of prior abuse surface for Bit as she finds herself on a freighter full of rowdy, ungentlemanly merchant marines. Jack works to find a safe place for frightened Bit among the ungentlemanly crew, but good looks and innocent ways continually charm the men.
With tension and danger running high, each begins to wonder: Will they survive the pirates…and each other?
My journey to becoming a writer began in 8th grade when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books. I also learned the blessing of creating my own friends by writing down the stories that plagued my lonely mind–as demented as that sounds. Therefore at the ripe age of fourteen, I wrote my first novel. It sucked! But I kept going and now I am an Indie Author with numerous books out. I never imagined that first horrible novel about a man who crashlanded on his long-lost homeworld would turn into a lifelong passion.
I now live in Chicago, IL with my amazing husband and two rambunctious cats, Groot and Rocket.
Ok, short, with enough action to last for many more pages the author gives us an interesting story about how a servant girl manages to survive a ship full of men.
After being won at a poker game (yup, you heard that right), Bit learns that not every guy is a bad guy. Having to deal with all the guys on the ship, receiving their attention, not in an offending way, leaves our main character quite surprised and impressed. Her life has not been easy and she has had to deal with quite a lot. I will not get into the details now. Suffice to say there is a lot to uncover and a lot to read about.
The plot is very entertaining, there are plenty of things happening and for almost 150 pages, there are many things happening and there is not one moment of boredom. I loved every page and I would have wanted to read more.
The narration was amazing! Ian McEuen did a great job keeping the story and the characters alive. The quality of the audiobook was great as well and I would love to hear his voice on the next books in the series.
All in all, this book was great. I would have wanted much more from our main character and her issues, but this is something that probably will be explored later on. 4 stars and I do hope you’ll give it a try J
