Elizabeth Monroe is the captain of an Alliance starship—the biggest and best one they have—but she’s not entirely at ease. The leader of the Alliance’s military, the ancient and ambitious Admiral Kotma, has it out for her. On top of that, she’s started wondering what the point of all these years of loneliness has been.
All that goes out the window in one split-second. As she cruises near the edge of alliance space a torpedo rocks her ship—the first in a while—and instead of fighting back, her entire crew shuts down. Explosions rip through the hull, and suddenly, instead of being in charge of a star ship crew, Liz is hanging on to life by her fingertips, and is apparently, the only one.
A deep, commanding voice crackles through the busted communicator of her ship. Whoever’s at the other end insists he’s going to get her out of the wreck, and from what Liz can hear, he isn’t going to take no for an answer.
Like she has any choice. Between being sucked dry by the vacuum of space and being taken by someone she doesn’t know? Liz’ll take her chances.
Lakshin Sang is the heir to an empire he doesn’t want. The only life he’s ever known has been one among the stars. As the stalwart, cocky, and obnoxiously sexy captain of the Lakshin Empire’s flagship, he’s spent his life exploring the fringes of the universe. But now that he’s got Liz on board, he’s starting to wonder if there isn’t more to life than adventure…and he can’t stop staring at her, no matter how hard he tries.
This star-faring novel of love, loss, adventure and romance asks—can love bloom in the most unlikely place, between the most unlikely pair? Will Liz and Sang survive two armies, and a terrible darkness pursuing them, or will they be TRAPPED IN THE STARS?
