“Gladys Hawke is one of the toughest women in the galaxy. She’s a former smuggler and now pilots the largest Federation trade ship. Gladys may have gone straight, but she is still wanted on several worlds. She didn’t expect to be kidnapped by a creepy little lizard and sold to the highest bidder in the worst place in the galaxy. She also didn’t expect to be bought by Tagor the Pirate, notorious smuggler and harem keeper.
Captain Tagor is well known throughout the galaxy for his harem of slaves and well wanted for his smuggling and other nefarious deeds. His reputation is all an act, thought, and he’s a Federation spy and out to save the galaxy. But he needs Gladys to accomplish this and Gladys isn’t about to help a man who keeps a harem and bought her from a slave auction.
Both Gladys and Tagor have issues from their pasts that need to be overcome in order for them to succeed in saving the galaxy from a dire threat. A horror from Gladys’ past is going to come back to haunt her and she needs Tagor and his empathic abilities in order to deal with it. But Gladys isn’t used to trusting anyone other than her best friend Cha’ng. Tagor has a lot of work ahead of him helping her while trying to control his feelings for her.
Gladys Hawke was a great read that grabbed my attention from the first paragraph and didn’t let go until the end. The heat between Gladys and Tagor is scorching as is a certain scene involving Cha’ng and the “harem”. The universe that Samantha Winston created left me wanted more stories set in it. Even her secondary characters were interesting and she left just enough to the imagination to have you wanting more. Gladys Hawke is an exciting futuristic read and I hope Ms. Winston creates more stories set in this universe.”~Nicole Hulst, The Romance Studio
