This erotic romance is also an exciting science fiction story. What little world-building is necessary is well done, and the characters are nicely developed. Some readers may find the hero's treatment of the heroine objectionable, though she does get her revenge in the end. This story includes menage a trois and some BDSM.
Unaware of her heritage, Monica volunteers to live on Garathan for 10 years to help the women who are moving there. But when her physical transformation into a Sparnite begins, she finds herself on the Garathani ship with plenty of pursuers. The only way to stay safe is to mate with Kellen and Shauss.
