Captain Shaylah Graymist, hero of the Coalition and ace fighter pilot, was tired and more than ready for a little R & R. She heads over to visit her old friend, Califa, and finds that Califa has a little surprise gift in store for her - Wolf, a pleasure slave. Shaylah is stunned when she sees the gorgeous man that Califa has saved for her to try out. She has always hated the Coalition's slave policy, but she is undeniably drawn to the sexy man ready to serve her every whim. Still, she cannot force herself to use the control that operates the slave color Wolf wears to make him want her. Shaylah decides that it is better just to keep him around so that he won't be punished anymore and to treat him like a human being for the first time in many long years.
Wolf doesn't know what to make of Shaylah. He was expecting another Coalition officer who would be only too happy to take advantage of his many charms, but Shaylah was different. She seemed to truly care for him and spent a whole week without using his body. Wolf finally found someone that he could open up to and told Shaylah a bit about his life on Trios, the gorgeous planet that was captured through trickery by the intergalactic Coalition - the same Coalition that Shaylah works for. When Shaylah betrays his trust at the end of the week, Wolf is furious and feels that Shaylah was just playing with him to give his captors the key to break him. When he becomes uncontrollable, Califa sells him to the brutal mining colony that is the last stop for rebellious slaves.
When Shaylah discovers what happened to Wolf because she wanted the pleasure of one evening in Wolf's arms, she feels responsible and heads out across the galaxy to save him. They are forced to hide on her ship together to try to avoid Coalition notice and the close quarters change their relationship into something more intimate, but not quite the friendship that they shared when they first met. Shaylah has just about convinced Wolf that she truly feels for him when he finds out that she has been keeping critical information from him - some of his fellow Triotians are alive! Determined to rejoin his people, Wolf forces Shaylah to take him there and nothing can prepare Shaylah for what she will find on the planet of Trios...
I am so glad that I found this book for sale on the internet. It is well written and the characters are wonderful! I really liked Wolf and Shaylah and thought that the worlds that they explored throughout their adventures were well developed, too. the book is a fast, fun read that is fast paced and can be read in a couple of hours. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the sequel, The Skypirate, which I hope will be just as good. I know the price is a little high to buy this book but the relationship between Wolf and Shaylah is hot, hot, hot and you will love the story so find a copy and buy it!
