Riana has everything a woman could want—a fast, sleek cargo ship, a thriving business as a trader in sensual goods, and a pick of handsome, accomplished lovers. So why the nagging sense of dissatisfaction with her life? Riana sets on a course to the Forbidden Sector in search of wealth and a place where she might truly belong. When her ship is caught in one of the fierce ion storms that plague the region and forced down on a male-dominated planet, she gets a crash course in living life without her most precious possession, her freedom.
Darias, Supreme Chief of Nexar, captured Riana and made her his slave. Yet no matter what Punishment he doles out, the woman still defies him, spreading among his people her outrageous beliefs that women should not be subservient to men. When his warriors’ rumbles of displeasure threaten to get out of hand, he realizes he’s been too lenient with his little troublemaker and vows to tame his fiery captive.
No longer does Riana want to just escape—she wants revenge.
Darias demands her complete obedience … Riana demands his surrender.
