Ryke wants nothing more than to escape the space pirates of the Gloria Furore and go home to his young son. He’s pretended to share their views and has worked his way up the ranks to co-pilot of the Armada Seven, commanded by the most vicious space captain of all. The capture of Princess Anguissa and her ship, the Archangel, is a moment of triumph for his superior—except that Anguissa never plays by anyone’s rules. In a flash of dragon fire, she incinerates most of the crew and takes command of the Armada Seven. Ryke is spared, but he’s not sure why—what plans does the beautiful dragon princess have for his future? And what will she demand to grant his wish of returning home?

Ms. Cooke builds a multi-faceted world
This amazing series by Deborah Cooke traces the lives of each of the 12 dragon shifter princesses of Incendium as they find their HeartKeeper, the mate they are destined to love. The Outlaw in the title is the Princess Anguissa, a renegade ship's captain and smuggler who thrives on danger. The elusive Ryke, an umbro (Soul-Stealer) from the planet Centurios, has been kidnapped and forced to serve the Gloria Furore, a vicious and ruthless group of mercenaries. When Anguissa is captured by the same group that holds Ryke, they work together to escape, even though their worlds demand that they be sworn enemies. As Anguissa and Ryke face crisis after crisis, they begin to realize that they have more commonalities than differences. As always, Ms. Cooke builds a multi-faceted world in which her characters reside, facing challenges and danger on the way to their inevitable HEA.
