I have just recently discovered Sherrilyn Kenyon. I read her new book "Fantasy Lover" and knew I had to read everything else she has written. I really enjoyed this sci-fi romance. I liked the fact that the characters had problems and weren't picture perfect. The supporting characters made the story whole and I would enjoy read stories about some of them.
This is the story of Alix, a slave who is a wiz mechanic and she hires on to be the engineer on Devyn's ship. She hopes to someday have enough money to get her own ship. Devyn has no idea that she is a slave and she keeps that info a secret from him. Devyn is a runner. He is a former HAWC doctor who had had enough of the horrible things he was assigned to do and now uses his ship to carry medical supplies and food to those in deperate need.
Neither of them realize that they are the targets of a evil man who will stop at nothing to see them harmed. Together they must learn to tust each other and face the evil. Along the way they find passion and love but its a struggle.
