Meet Liberty Silke, a 'genetic deviant' from a wealthy and powerful family. She has two deficiencies that prohibit her from holding a 'real' job, voting, or procreating - she is blind and a lycan. But that won't stop her from doing her job of getting an important data clip back to Earth.

Meet Richard Moriarty, aka Rickie, aka The Hitman, aka Cupcake. Another lycan, this silent giant has a rough past that he doesn't want anyone to know about. All that will change when they have to take cover on his former home planet. He will do everything in his power to make sure his past doesn't affect Liberty. Besides, what could a beautiful, wealthy woman like Liberty want with a man whose secrets could get her killed?

This book starts with Liberty, Cupcake and Dragana trapped on Antioch Station waiting for Liberty's wealthy family to smuggle in a replacement eyesight chip for Liberty. They try to keep a low profile as they are fugitives from Earth, as well as Cupcake having a sordid past on Antioch. But luck is not on their side. When an old colleague spots Cupcake, things get bad in a hurry. Cupcake knows his time is running out, and Liberty wants at least one night to cherish and show him how she feels about him; she sees this as the perfect opportunity. Can she convince him to love her or will their enemies get to them before he succumbs? I don't want to spoil too many of the plots twists and turns, so I won't reveal anymore.

What a captivating series! I have not read the first book, FERAL (which did not detract from my enjoyment of this book at all), but after reading this, I plan to. And I can't wait for the next installment either - hurry, Ms. Gray, you've got me hooked! The two main characters are both hard, but vulnerable to each other. Cupcake's gentle side and romantic actions towards Liberty makes me melt. I wouldn't mind having a protector like him. The sex is infrequent, but what is incorporated is steamy and raw, definitely deserving of its E-rotic rating. The secondary characters add a lot of humor and depth to the storyline, making me anxious to read more. Pick this up and read it today. You won't be sorry.

This author is a very interesting woman with more than a dozen published books. Get the complete list at or email her at
