In 2785 Jaide Calanarre, spaceship augmenter, wants to get out of the debt that her brother buried her under. To regain the credit standing she once had, Jaide and her partner Sesame Calais contract their services to amplify the performance of a Draconian ship. Anyone with a half a brain would prefer mountains of debt rather than deal with the disreputable Draconians, in spite of their good neighbor policy since crashing onto Antarctica twenty-five years ago.

When Draconian Commander Skye D'Rath meets Jaide on the moon she is rude, thorny, and hostile towards him. Instead of the usual male running and hiding his tail from an aggressive woman, Skye finds Jaide's acerbic behavior amusing though he wonders if it is gender or racially based. He decides to learn more about this strange earthling, but never expected to fall in love.

This is a strong science fiction romance that insures the audience believes in the future described by author Autumn Dawn. A secondary cross species romance serves as a means of providing further insight into the Draconians and the twenty-eighth century earthlings. What makes RIDE THE STARS soar remains Skye and Jaide as individuals and in a relationship providing the solar center to a descriptive futuristic novel that has cross species appeal.
