Victoria Gardner was used to being the villain in other people’s stories. ‘Poison Pucker’ in the press translated to ‘pariah’ in the Guilds. Her affinity made her dangerous, but only to those who crossed her. When she arrives home to discover her sister abducted, it ignites every protective instinct. Kidnap and blackmail were trouble enough, but needing a stranger’s help to save her sister was worse. Trustworthy allies were few and far between in her life.Dominic Dawes is done risking his life for the greater good. He needs to get paid. His for-hire status and transport pod make him the perfect partner for Victoria’s rescue attempt. His cocky attitude and rough brand of handsome are the only red flags.
Their journey through the jungles is steamy and dangerous, filled with unexpected players crashing their plans.
One night together left them both thirsty for more. Can Victoria save her sister without sacrificing her heart? Will Dom’s need for credits keep him on mission when he discovers Victoria isn’t what she seems, and his old life beckons?
