This is a scifi paranormal romance with high heat.
A devilishly passionate tale of a fierce demon captain and the mysterious young princess he vows to protect. Their passion will ignite the stars.
As captain of the merchant ship Marada, Sebastian has been commissioned to deliver a curious parcel to a ruthless pirate named Ethanule. But when a bewitching young woman mysteriously appears on his ship, he finds it impossible to focus on the job...and to keep his hands off her.
Held captive most of her life, Analia makes a desperate bid for freedom and escapes onto a craft led by a fearsome demon who sparks her desire, but her secrets are more dangerous than she knows. If she is to maintain her freedom, she must gain Sebastian's trust while concealing her true nature.
Analia has been a slave all her life but after being sexually abused by the man who owns her, she escapes and takes refuge on a ship of demons.
Sebastian isn't sure he can trust Analia when he finds her on his ship but they fall for each other and he knows he has to try and keep her safe.
Analia is a strong character but she's had to be with the way her life has been. But even after being sexually abused by her owner, when she gets to know Sebastian, she feels something for him. I think it's because he treated her kindly and was nice to her. I really liked these two together. I liked how wonderful he is with her and how we see her excitement at times when she experiences something new. Her being a slave her entire life and her secret abilities made her owner Darius want to get her back and it also showed just how sheltered she had been kept.
I really liked the secondary characters that were aboard the ship and I look forward to getting to know them more in future books. I've read this author before and liked her books so I thought I would give this one a try and I'm glad I did.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
