Following a devastating injury, Detective Rose "Little Dragon" Lee takes a courier job to make payments on her ship. The job was easy...safe...until her ship is captured by the dangerous, war-like Nephris.
Nephris Commander Arad Soheil immediately recognizes his captive as the one person his government would most like to capture and terminate. Arad immediately files a property claim on the dangerous female, making her part of his household. Rose means more to him than a warm body in his bed or a vessel for his children. She holds the key to his freedom and his sanity, to his very life.
Because Arad Soheil is not what he seems, and his time is running out.
First, I have to confess that I'm a dork, and while most of you reading this will already KNOW that it is true, I have to clarify this for those who don't really know me. I read these books backwards. Yeah, I know, not devastating news, but I think they would have flowed a bit better had I read them in order. LOL Oh well...
Belinda McBride has me green with envy - she has a real talent for creating alternate/futuristic worlds with races of aliens that not even Gene Roddenberry could have dreamed up. I love the fact that her heroines are tiny, but powerful women, hell-bent on doing things their way and making it work. And to add fuel to the fire - she writes gripping stories that make you hunger for more. I highly recommend both the Black Planet series and the Imperative series, both from Changeling Press.
