She has three rules: Sail alone, trust no one and never, ever fall in love…
A decade after her rich-girl life fell apart, Devin’s a changed woman—her name, her face, and her attitude. Fast-talking, and as hard-as-nails as any sailor, she navigates the most dangerous solar roads in the universe. Times are tough, but she gets the job done. Always. The last thing she needs is a delay, but when she runs across a stranded sailor she has no choice. The law of the roads demands she rescue him… even if he is the last man in the universe she ever wanted to see again. The husband she fell for, but ran from before their wedding night…
She’s the one who got away. Now she’s uncharted territory…
Kelwin Sayeed is a super-soldier without a war and with money to burn. His latest and most ambitious project, the solar flyer Artemis, was supposed to prove him worthy of the famously reclusive Solar Sailors, but instead a catastrophic computer failure has him at the mercy of the most hazardous road of all; Icaria.
No sailor would leave another to certain death though, and he’s rescued by another ship. He expected a sailor born and bred to the roads, with skin wizened like beaten gold. What he gets is a woman whose voice does things to his body that should be illegal and whose golden-tinted skin sparks erotic fantasies. She seems familiar, but he can’t place her. Yet. Once he has her in his bed, he’ll spend an eternity figuring out what makes her tick.
When pirates decide to gatecrash the party, it turns out his mysterious woman has secrets of her own and a past he’s intimately familiar with. He escaped her father's trap once... this time, he has a second chance to claim what he's owed without losing anything. Especially his heart.
**Contains a self re-invented woman with a low tolerance for b******t and a tendency to snark, a hot former soldier with a brutal approach to protecting what’s his, and a solar-kissed romance that spans years.**
