Publisher: Ellora's Cave
Earth Federation Commander Dax Morrison is furious at being kidnapped and coerced into flying escaped Altezzan royals to the safety of Federation territory. Still smarting from being tricked, Dax refuses the offers of crown jewels or cash currency in exchange for his help. His price? He wants his voluptuous and oh-so-delicious kidnapper, Her Royal Hotness, Princess Ariana. He wants her bad.
Ariana is desperate to save her kingdom. The only one who can help is a sexy, irresistible Federation Commander who makes her want to do wicked and definitely un-princesslike things. Like kissing him, touching him and exploring his body.
In the midst of a perilous journey, Dax and Ariana pursue forbidden, sinful pleasures. In a battle against time, Ariana must find a way to show Dax they belong together. Forever.

Review: Great story. Super fast paced action in outer space. This was a very well rounded story. Great plot, high risks, emotionally charged environment and a likeable cast of characters. Dax is stubborn, but reasonable. So even though he was drugged and kidnapped, he recognizes the desperation motivating Ariana. That doesn’t mean he won’t extract a little compensation—sex baby. She’s hot and he’s horny. Only he never forces the issue. He likes Ariana, wants her, but he’s honorable and taking her carries too high of a price. She is a princess and that comes with certain responsibilities. For this reason, the sexual aspects are mild and not what I would classify as erotic for most of the story. However, Ariana’s life is at a crossroads. At any time she could lose it all including her very life and Dax makes her feel so very good. For the last 20 pages, their relationship becomes sexual, but the writing is still not highly graphic. This story delivers on great storytelling without a high number of sexual scenes.
