Michael O’Malley is a spy working for the Solarian Federation, undercover in a sting operation against Jerold Laricon and his Ligeian settlement on Titan. Laricon is a man with Machiavellian social restructuring schemes and a desire for world domination. It’s a bad time for Nina Stanley, O’Malley’s old flame, to get kidnapped by Laricon.
Muddying the waters is Michael’s need to fit in and partake of the succulent fruits of Laricon’s stratified system—including the sweet, beautiful, and willing Alyssa. Michael wants to help Nina and free Alyssa, but he also wants to crush Laricon’s unscrupulous and vicious rise to power.
Nina is appalled by what she experiences in Ligeia at the hands of the evil Laricon. Her goal is to get out, no matter what it takes. But what if the price is Michael's life? Can she live with herself if that happens?
Nota bene: this book includes polygyny, but is not a ménage story. The story contains dominant males, and some difficult situations. However, it is an erotic romance with a happy ending. If any of these elements offends you, this is not the book for you.
