Hijacking a woman's spacecraft is definitely not the way to win her heart.
Gerald Wolff is a convict blackmailed into hijacking the ship belonging to Jed, a star Archer and descendant of one of the highest Blood lineages in the known galaxy, while he is but an outcast half Blood.
Jed has found Equilibrium by adhering to a strict code. Wolff's intrusion into her ship and her life upsets the balance of her obsessively controlled world. His very presence confuses her, yet they must work together in order to discover why they are being hunted, and to stay one step ahead of their pursuers.
Content Warning:Violence, sex, foul language, science.
It starts off rather slow, but it does build up to an awe inspiring tale. The sex scenes were steamy enough that my glasses had become foggy! Lets also say that my husband had a good night.
Gerald was so well detailed, that I could actually imagine him standing in front of me. And lets just say that, THAT was a good image to imagine. Jed was a bit to standoffish nearly the entire story, but I guess that was how she was suppose to be. Overall I greatly enjoyed the book, and couldn't put it down. The details were absolutely great, along with the detail of the ship. There were a couple of wordings that I couldn't put into context, but caught onto at the end. Love it!
