Major Lara McDaniel is a by-the-book type of officer. Being in charge of the Emperor's safety on board the cruiser The Federation and commanding the Imperial bodyguards isn't an easy job, but she's up to the challenge. At least until the entire crew is poisoned and her Emperor kidnapped.
Former Squad leader and now space scavenger Riley has had enough of military living to last him forever. He likes his life nice and uncomplicated, going from space station to space station looking to buy, sell, or trade his goods. What he isn't looking for is a bossy Major who commandeers his ship and his help.
Riley and Lara must find her Emperor and discover who is behind the kidnapping before an intergalactic war breaks out. Meanwhile, a different sort of war is brewing between Riley and Lara, one that pits Lara's brain against the desires of her body. As the danger increases, so to does the fire that is growing between the two reluctant partners.

Major Lara McDaniel does things by-the-book. She was in charge of Emperor Thomellt's safety on board his star cruiser. When a shipment of meat arrived from Empress Lisandra, the Emperor would not let Lara examine it before rushing it off to the kitchens for cooking. Since Lara was just getting off a long shift, she went to bed rather than eat. Therefore, she was the only person aboard that did not fall prey to food poisoning. It also meant that a group of kidnappers were able to board and take the Emperor without anyone being physically able to stop them. As soon as Lara discovered the Emperor had been taken, she set off in a small ship to trail the kidnappers. She ended up being ambushed. ............................... Riley (no last name mentioned that I could find) is a former military squad leader and scout. Currently he is a space scavenger. While going through a pile of debris he has just collected, Riley comes across an unconscious Lara. Upon awakening, she immediately commandeers his ship and they are off to rescue the Emperor. Meanwhile, the Empress assumes command of the armies and is declaring war. .................................. **** I stress that this is an Erotic Sci-Fi. There are many scenes that are not suitable for anyone under the age of seventeen. Now that I have done my duty in informing you of the exotic content, let me say that this story is very good indeed! I read the book for its story, not the erotica content. (It is just an added bonus.) It starts off with action, instantly catching my interest, which is a MUST with me. If a book does not start off interesting, then I drop it and pick up one that will. The two main characters have their own personalities and quirks, so I found them to be believable. The only down thing I can say about this title is that the ending seemed a bit rushed to me. However, this is one of the better erotica books I have had the pleasure of reading. ****
