Her heart trampled and torn, innocent Georgina Anderson was desperate to return home to America. Leaving her sorrows on England’s shores, she defiantly boarded the “gentleman’s ship” Maiden Anne” disguised as a cabin boy- never dreaming she’d be forced into intimate servitude to the irrepressible rake Captain James Malory.
A handsome ex-pirate, the black sheep of a proud and tempestuous family, Malory swore no woman alive would entice him to matrimony.
But on the high seas, he would be bested by a high-spirited beauty whose love of freedom and adventure rivaled his own . . . and by an inescapable tidal wave of passion that threatened to engulf them both.
On the planet Kystran, year 2139, a place where technology rules with no room for passion, top-notch security guard Tedra De Arr is a force to be reckoned with. Statuesque, startlingly beautiful and the height of physical perfection, Tedra has never known a man’s touch — only because no man on her planet can vanquish her in battle — or in bed.
When the planet is taken over by an evil despot, Tedra manages to escape with her friend Martha — a wise-cracking computer. Together, they find refuge in an exotic world where powerful warriors reign supreme, an alien planet where the innocent but brazen Tedra challenges a bronzed barbarian named Challen.
Unfortunately for Tedra, she loses — and she must become Challen’s slave, fulfilling his every wish “even where he sleeps.” But what begins as punishment soon becomes sensuous joy — as Tedra discovers what it means to desire, as she tries to no avail to extinguish her passion in order to save her world.
