Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy

Solae O'bora is the most successful bounty hunter around. She always gets her man and she's not above using her sexuality to do it. What she won't do is allow herself to become involved with any man who wants to control her.

Raav Asirian makes war for money, a ruthless mercenary with a reputation for exotic sexual appetites. He'd like nothing better than to get his hands on luscious bounty hunter, Solae O'bora, but she continually declines his advances. Until a twist of fate brings them together on Cyntr-Rho, the pleasure planet.

On R&R, Asirian spies Solae in a local hot spot, dancing seductively with a known felon. Assuming she's after a bounty, he makes a deal with the bar owner in an effort to bring the gorgeous hunter to heel. He's got something she wants, and to get it, she must agree to spend one night in his bed -- doing anything and everything he demands of her. Thus begins her initiation into the world of BDSM, where pleasure and pain are intimate bedfellows and giving up control is the biggest turn on of all.

On her own again, Solae arrives on Toru Two to collect bounty papers on the pirate who’d killed her mother and sister. To her dismay, she learns she is to be partnered with Asirian. Despite their mutual fears, they fall in love, only to be torn apart by a secret Asirian has kept hidden from her -- a secret she may never be able to forgive.

In a desperate bid for freedom, she steals his transport and flees, only to discover it's not so easy to leave a man willing to follow you across the stars.

About India Masters

See more books from this Author
India refers to herself as an old, Southern hippie. She is happily divorced with no intention of rectifying the situation because sometimes she can barely stand her own company, much less someone else. She has one grown daughter who she still refers to as "Doodle," and lives in a rapidly developing rural area in Florida where she shares her domain with all manner of wildlife, a swimming pool that is a breeding ground for a seemingly virulent strain of algae, and a black snake that likes to surprise her when she turns on the outdoor faucet and picks up the black water hose. India developed a love for writing while earning her B.A. in Criminal Justice from a northern college. She refers to herself as a late bloomer, as she married late, gave birth late, and got started writing late in life. She developed her love for all things quirky from doing psychiatric social work in both the community and corrections fields. She has always loved a good romance novel but found them lacking because all the good stuff was cloaked in euphemisms or happened behind closed doors. It wasn't until she joined a critiquing group that she discovered romantic erotica, and her first book, The Soul Collector, was born. She credits her success to the caring support of the women--and one, lone man--in her critique group, but especially to one member who took her under her wing and helped her learn everything from point of view to manuscript formatting.
