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 crash-landed 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.
This is book one in a new series set in the future, when space travel is an everyday experience. Unfortunately for Bit an indentured servant life has been horrendous with all her previous owners, and now she has been won in a card by a young man Galen.
Suddenly she is on her way to a freighter spaceship filled with men. Fortunately Galen’s brother Jack is the captain and he can see how frightened she is. Bit is taken back when her room is found for her with a lock on the inside.
This is centered around Bit and how she reacts to only kindness that is shown to her. This is an interesting start to a new series in which there a battle and many insights to the members of the crew. A short listen at only 3hours 57mins but with plenty fitted in giving me a taste to look forward to book two.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Charissa Dufour. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
