As an undercover operative for the Constellation League, Marcos Starlaw's current assignment is a dangerous mission. Posing as a low-end gem merchant, he must infiltrate the Delta Seven mining colony to discern whether pirates have overrun the planet as his superiors suspect. Still, he expects to return home soon, back into the arms of the many women who eagerly await his return.
Burned and scarred by torture, Nova Drayton has lived the past two years in a cave, waiting for someone to help her people. The governor of her home world is a lying, thieving traitor who has taken up with the Limaxian pirates that have overrun her society. They've killed many innocents, including her parents and fiancE. Realizing law enforcers may never come—that they've likely forgotten their promise to so much as patrol her beleaguered colony—Nova now hates everything having to do with the vaunted Constellation League and its pretentious officers.
When Marcos comes face to face with the pirates and a weapon of mass destruction, he makes a critical mistake, blowing his cover. If Nova doesn't help Marcos escape the pirates well, he's already one heartbeat away from taking his last breath. How can he convince a girl who's lived through hell that he's the one she's been waiting for?
With nothing left but their own ingenuity, the pair must find a way to ally or die at the hands of cutthroats.
