Drug runner Emilio Morales is one deal away from being the sole runner from Earth to the upper planetsâuntil his partner attempts a double-cross. Now, Emilioâs stuck in a disabled spaceship with an unpredictable, attractive female whoâs willing to help him out if heâll assist her in retrieving her ship from an impound facility.
Antonia âToniâ Smith is sick and tired of being beholden to men. The only way to guarantee freedom is to get back her bootlegging ship to run her own business again. When Emilio kills her ticket out, sheâs forced to rely on him for assistance. Emilio, the most wanted and annoying man in the solar system, is a sexy-as-hell means to an end.
But every plan the duo makes falls apart and every day they spend in each otherâs company increases the tension between them.
With the death toll rising and their defenses low, can Emilio and Toni get the happy ending they want, without falling for each other in the process?
Emilio watched her like a hawk. âHow the hell do you know how to do that?â
âI captain a ship. Most people donât just get to run a vessel because they win it gambling.â
âSo, youâve heard of me?â He winked at her.
She groaned. âYes, by reputation alone.â
âAll good things?â
âIf you call being a ladiesâ man who attracts desperate, scar-loving station-clingers a good thing.â She left out the rumors of his bedroom prowess. Because sheâd turned over a new leaf. No sex, no men and definitely no crazy stuff.
âI can tell from your expression youâve heard other things.â
How easily heâd read her since the moment theyâd faced off on Casa Manolo bugged her as well. She focused on the piloting. âMaybe that you won a fancy ship in a poker game.â
âBetter to win one than lose one,â he replied.
The words stung, the sharp pain taking up residence somewhere in the center of her chest. Why am I attracted to him again? âYou know what they say on Marsâ¦canât win big if you donât risk big.â
âMars girl, eh?â
Toni gave a single nod.
âMakes sense why youâre crazy.â
She wanted to take offense at his shocked tone, dismissive like so many of the men sheâd met over the years. The way the upper planets still regarded woman as objects more often than as productive members of society drove her nuts. âDonât let this dress fool you.â
âItâs doing everything but fooling me,â he retorted with a smirk.
