Woo hoo! Gambit released today from Carina Press, and while Emergence has my favorite of Kim’s short story heroes, Gambit has Daned–oh yeah. I would so wrap his sweet self in gold. *rawr* Actually, I’d like to get some gold for my husband. I mean, Christmas will be here before you know it. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind being turned into my gold-plated love monkey. 😉
Gambit by Kim Knox
Captain Chae Beyon is a hustler, a mercenary pilot, a wounded woman who prefers her men to be easily thrown aside.
Daned Traern is a first-caste Ladaian bound by tradition and DNA to protect his race. He’s willing to align himself with the hot space captain if she’ll transport him home in time to ensure the right candidate is crowned—and thus prevent a bloody war.
Disguised as Chae’s sex toy, Daned is erotically bound to her through living gold, alien tech designed to increase pleasure. When he frees himself, their passion only increases…but succumbing to temptation will bind them together—permanently.
But there’s more at stake than their needs. As Chae is dragged into a world of insane princes and sentient stones, hired killers hound them across the quadrant.
And then, as only her lousy luck would have it, Chae must choose between the good of the galaxy and her own heart…
