A rough around the edges mercenary and a little spit-fire determined not to be anyone’s pleasure slave-making contact has never been so volatile . . . or so much fun!
Rhyn is an ex-lawman working as a mercenary. He’s contracted to protect large space freighters and passenger liners through space. He considers most sentient beings too annoying to be around on a permanent basis. He’s content to swear at inanimate objects and tinker with his pride and joy-Baker’s Pride; a bastardised freighter with more than one nasty little surprise under the hull skin just waiting to spring on the unsuspecting pirates he loves to goad and chase.
That is until his latest assignment brings him face to face with a stunning, fiery little cat man slave named Lore. Will the siren he discovers lead him to new horizons or will he crash and burn up on re-entry to reality?
Lore’s not having a very good day. He’s been reclassified as a pleasure slave, traded off-world, knocked on the head and placed in stasis and now he’s woken up surrounded by four of the biggest, hairiest men he’s ever laid eyes on. Oh! And it looks like they’re pirates.
Just as well he’s handy with a skillet and the pirates aren’t immune to a few well placed hits! Will the sudden appearance of a glorious, dark skinned angel in a lawman’s hat be the answer to all his lust filled prayers, or is he just another devil in disguise sent to snatch all his hopes and dreams away again?
Jade Archer - How To Steal Blade
A disillusioned Dom and a bratty sub chafing against being a slave—oh! and those nasty cuffs that are cutting off the circulation to his wrists—this time making contact is going to require discipline. Deminic’s not happy. He relocated to the fast paced, cut-throat business world of the Mebian system to try and find what was missing in his life. Instead, he finds his days an endless parade of sycophantic business owners, fawning hostesses and toadying charity organisations. Even the joy he once found in dominating a sub has long since lost its appeal, as more and more often he finds they’re only interested in the tempting bulge of his credit chip. Surely, while he’s trying to figure out what he wants in life, it’s not too much to ask to find an honest sub? Someone who’s just the right combination of submission and challenge? Blade’s smart mouth and disrespectful attitude are always getting him into trouble. But this time he’s really outdone himself. He’s naked, gagged and bound over a rather ominous looking black leather bench. And the cuffs are really becoming annoying. For a start, they won’t loosen enough for him to get away before whoever he’s being offered up to like a tasty little lubed snack comes in. If only being bound and gagged didn’t feel so…incredibly tempting. When these two meet there’s bound to be some misunderstandings, but is the biggest one of all destined to drive a wedge between them forever, just as they finally manage to get free of the system that’s been dragging them both down?
Jade Archer - Where to Find Harte
When you’re a run-away slave, the very last person you should want to make contact with is a bounty hunter. Pity Harte can’t seem to keep his hands off the man. Harte is in trouble. Big trouble. And the only hope he and nineteen other cat man slaves have of surviving is to get a message out about what is really going on in the secret medical research facility they’re being held at. Unfortunately, the next to no chance Harte had when he ran away looks like a completely lost cause now he’s been captured by the infamous Logan McCabe. If only the man didn’t look like a walking wet dream he might be able to work out how to get out of this mess. Logan has always prided himself on his professionalism and dedication to doing a good job, every time. Falling for a target and reneging on a contract isn’t covered under either. It’s simple, not something Logan has ever considered doing before. Until Harte. Now Logan finds himself putting his heart on the line, regardless of his commitments. A pity the gorgeous man of his dreams doesn’t seem to have any qualms about crossing the line and grinding his misplaced affection into the dust. Between stubborn bounty hunters who won’t listen, a lab full of homicidal medical personnel, a system rife with abuse and injustice and a rather inconvenient internal time bomb threatening to end his life, Harte really is in a world of trouble. One that might not include the happily ever after he’s been hoping for.
