Synopsis: Raheiran Special Forces captain Gillaine Davré has just woken up in some unknown space way station, wondering where the last three hundred years have gone.

Gillaine’s only hope of survival rests with dangerously seductive Admiral Mack Makarian, who suspects her of being a smuggler—or worse. But he can’t begin to imagine the full extent of it. For Gillaine is now Lady Kiasidira, holy icon to countless believers, including Mack—a man who inspires feelings in her that are far from saintly…feelings she knows are mutual. But when their flirtation is interrupted by a treacherous enemy from the past, Gillaine’s secret—and secret desires—could destroy them both….(back of the book)
Review: Once again, Sinclair has proven why she is one of my favorite author. With marvelous characters, exciting plots, mysteries, fabulous world-building - how could I not adore her work? This book is a stand-alone, meaning it takes place in it's own universe - similar to Games of Command. The two main characters are likeable, funny, romantic, strong and worth rooting for! I enjoyed the way the Hero and Heroine's relationship grew, the obstacles in their way and how things were resolved. I highly recommnend to anyone who enjoys sci-fi/fantasy mash-ups with a heavy streak of romance.
