Heris Serrano was an officer from a family with a long tradition of distinguished service in the Fleet. So when a treacherous superior set her up and forced her to resign her commission, she thought life had lost all meaning. But she still needed to pay the bills—which was how she ended up as "Captain" of a rich old lady's interstellar luxury yacht, the Sweet Delight, which just added insult to injury ... or so she thought.

But Cecelia, the rich and exceedingly well-born old lady, turned out to have more brains than most admirals Heris had known, and when the pair ran into a secret society whose idea of ""fun"" was hunting and killing people, they quickly put a stop to that blood sport. But that was only the beginning. The heir to the throne himself was involved with the society, and Heris soon uncovered a plot against the royal family and a conspiracy within the Fleet itself. And whoever controlled the Fleet controlled the galaxy . . .

Before it was all over, Heris would be given a chance to rejoin her beloved space navy ... if she could manage to stop an invading armada with only one destroyer, two PT boats, one ore scow, and—oh, yes—an old lady's space yacht Sweet Delight. Impossible Not for Heris Serrano.

This is my second time reading this. The first time was more than a decade ago. At that time, I most appreciated the plot. this time round, I was able to appreciate the character growth that is, I think, the best part of this series. Furthermore, I saw how beyond the story, the author was seeking to get readers to consider the dark side that could emerge should biological discoveries uncork the genie of eternal youth. I could wish that the author had spent more time on transitions. There are many places where I found myself saying, "Huh? Where's the seque from the just ended paragraph to this one?" But those are minor considerations when balanced with what makes this series well worth not only reading but rereading.

It's Moon...it's always fabulous! A roaring good space adventure, one that continues with the unobtrusive character in charge of the now loyal Despite.

Very good read. Thoughtful exploration into the world she's creates . A good adventure but she not afraid to pull the trigger either. Not recommended as a cure for insomnia. You've been warned.
