Desperate to evade bounty hunters, space pirate Olena is forced to play the part of a hopeful bride as she takes refuge on a Galaxy Brides ship en route to Qurilixen. Olena vows to hide on the savage planet only as long as it takes to reunite with her crew. Meanwhile, she must escape pursuers and new husband Yusef.

Yusef knows he's found his soul mate, but despite their passionate sexual encounters, he senses Olena is hiding something. By the time he thaws her icy heart, war threatens them all.

Pillow crafts a spicy, spellbinding romance in the third installment of her Dragon Lords series. Set against a fantastic futuristic setting, the characters are engagingly realistic as they struggle against the pain of the past and the uncertainty of the present to find happiness.
