Nadia Green has everything going for her. She’s the youngest lieutenant commander in the history of the Earth-Space Intergalactic Council, she’s a respected scientist, and she’s engaged to a handsome man with important family connections.
But Nadia also lives in a strict society that doles out harsh punishments for even the most minor crimes. When a lapse in judgment leads her to steal medication from her starship’s medical unit, Nadia is sentenced to life on Tolbos—a small, barren planet controlled by ruthless warlords. Although the Council has outlawed the death penalty, a life sentence on Tolbos is a sort of living death. To survive, prisoners are forced to mine kaptum—a mysterious metal that reshapes itself into whatever its owner desires.
Within hours of crash-landing on Tolbos, Nadia finds herself captured, stripped, and placed on an auction block, where she’s purchased by Ivar Holok, a brutal warlord with golden eyes and an ability to wield kaptum with a mastery unlike anyone she’s ever seen.
Ivar is instantly attracted to the beautiful slave, but he suspects her presence on Tolbos has sinister implications. The Council wants him dead, and what better way to achieve its goal than by planting an irresistible assassin in his bed? No matter how much he wants to trust her, Ivar has to protect his people—even if it means denying Nadia her freedom. He vows to keep her enslaved and at his mercy until she confesses her involvement in the Council’s schemes, but he didn’t count on the slave enthralling her master.
Nadia Green has everything—power, prestige, and a fiancé. That all ends when she’s sentenced to life on a prison planet. When she’s enslaved by a ruthless warlord, she must convince him to trust her. But can she convince her traitorous body to stop responding to his touch?

This is a guest post I wrote for my book blitz. I figured I'd put it on my blog, too, but with GIFs! I don't know what I did before the internet. I mean, just look at what it has to offer! Anyway, here are 10 things I wish I'd known before I started writing. Write the...read more
Here's something to know about me: I have never used a beta reader. It's not because I don't want to. I'd love to have an objective reader or two take a look at my drafts and give me their honest opinions. Readers are an excellent judge of shitty plots, underdeveloped...read more
I'm writing a romance series about werewolves and I don't care who knows it. Also, it's pretty edgy in the S-E-X department. As a reader, I scoop up paranormal romance novels like a long haul trucker at an Old Country Buffet. A scroll through the reading apps on my...read more
