Seeking a diversion to her troubles, Minka meets Tigg at a bar on Planet Treox. She envisions a night spent wrapped in the exotic alien’s arms with no thought to the future. Tigg, however, is looking for a mate. In the throes of passion he impregnates his lover and informs her of his deed. Infuriated, Minka lashes out, only to have her night made more unfortunate by the unexpected arrival of her thwarted lover, and co-conspirator, Clay. Involved in illicit deeds, the ill-used Minka is horrified when Clay asks her to commit one more criminal act for him—one that he assures her will set her free of him.
Thus sets the stage for an adventure across the galaxy seeing Minka and Tigg flee from world to world. While their escapade puts the pair at great risk, Minka fears the greatest risk of all…losing her heart to her irresistible lover.
