Book three in the Planetary Submissives Series
When ex-slave Zall is asked to be Captain Teslan’s cabin boy, he learns sometimes you have to bend your rules to offer your heart.
Zall is settling in on the ship Chalice chose for him. Even though he’s not a soldier, he’s learning from them and developing his own skills. When the ship changes captains, Zall has to decide if he’d rather keep his independence or offer himself to a man who might be everything he’s ever wanted…or his biggest mistake.
Danner Teslan has agreed to investigate a possible smuggling ring on a military ship. However when he arrives and meets Zall, he’s convinced the ex-slave is his other half. Zall is not interested in becoming another man’s property and Danner has to decide whether he’s willing to give another person the freedom to destroy his heart.
Zall is just starting to get his head on straight, and rebuild his self-confidence. All the sudden he feels a draw to someone who he feels will want him to be a slave again. Something he swore to himself that he would never do again. Then something happens, the draw keeps getting stronger and stronger to Danner. He doesn’t understand why, but finds that circumstances come about to make it easy for him to make excuses to himself so that he can brake his rule even if temporarily.
Danner is looking for his mate, but he really never expects to find him. So when he suddenly finds Zall during his tour on his new ship he is overwhelmed by his good fortune. That is until he reads more into Zall’s memories. Then all he wants is to make sure that his mate is loved and taken care of for the rest of there lives. As usual fate steps in to cause problems that they might not walk away from.
I really can’t say enough about this book,and this series. The characters are so real and believable that you can relate with each one. I’m not sure which one I like the most Zall because he has overcome so much in his life time, and he is still an upstanding man. Or Danner who has the quirks of his race, and yet he still is a stand up captain who cares about his crew.
