When space freighter pilot Calen Macleef accidentally wins Larissa “Bit” Earnest in a lucky hand of poker, his main concern is what his gruff and uncompromising brother Jack will say about it. Jack Macleef is the captain of the ship in a world where space travel has only recently become the norm and space piracy abounds. Painful memories of prior abuse surface for Bit as she finds herself on a freighter full of rowdy, ungentlemanly merchant marines. Jack works to find a safe place for frightened Bit amongst the ungentlemanly crew, but good looks and innocent ways continually charm the men. With tension and danger running high, each begins to wonder: will they survive the pirates... and each other?

Nice short story
Well written and plotted. I enjoyed the short story and hope there's a series.
As flat earth as the previous one
At least there was no child of fate or golden one
Trust and Treachery
Well written. Story was full of detailed characters with the best and not so good well represented. Flowed well, but a little short. Nice the have a sci-fi that doesn't rely on gore and sex alone to entertain. Thanks for a entertaining read.
