Disguised as a boy
on a ship full of sex-crazed aliens...
What could possibly go wrong?
On the trail of her next big documentary, Joy boards a pirate ship under false pretenses. The hot alien captain with the washboard abs will make her female viewers go weak at the knees, and Joy wouldn't mind licking the Kantarellian rum right off his bulging copper muscles, herself.
Captain Kashatok isn't a man of rules, but the one thing he won't allow is a woman on his ship. His crewmen are immoral bastards, plus he needs to avoid triggering his own internal monster. When he can’t keep his eyes off the ship's new mechanic, he thinks he’s just protecting an innocent boy.
Except after Joy’s secret is exposed, her talent for fixing engines won't be enough to keep the crew in their place. Can she rely on Captain Kashatok to protect her? Or is he the most dangerous of them all?
Reader Promise: Steamy love scenes, dangerous aliens, and heart-pounding action. Intended for mature audiences.
No cliffhangers and a guaranteed HEA. You can read this as a standalone, although you'll probably enjoy it more if you start with book one in the series, Rescued by Qaiyaan.
Ransomed by Kashatok Tamsin Ley
I loved this story. It was entertaining and interesting, with plenty of intrigue and action to pull you in and hold your attention from beginning to end. I loved the characters and their interactions and can’t wait to see what comes next. It was different and I loved exploring more of this world in this second book. It can be read as a stand-alone but there are certain things that you get extra benefit and meaning out of if you have read the first book.
Undercover reporter and a pirate ship
Second book in the series. Stand alone with a happy ending and enough info that makes you want to know what happens next!
Joy is going undercover to get a story on pirates and lands a job as a mechanic on Kashatok’s ship. Joining the crew as Joey (male) who appears to be a young male vs the rest of the crew. They go to hijack another vessel and of course things don’t go well.
I so enjoyed the action, adventure and danger in the book with some romance thrown in the mix. The characters from the first book also play a roles within this book (helpful to read book one which is also a fantastic story) which added to the action. I liked the story lines of Joy - the undercover reporter trying to formulate her story and evolve it as it develops from just pirates to slave traders. Capt Kashatok - trying to make sure nothing happens to Joey, keeping his integrity when taking over a vessel full of slaves, and then finding Joey is not a boy. The crew being a little salty that he allowed a female aboard……
Highly recommend this book (and the first one too)!
