The United Planets Fleet is all that stands between the United Terran Colonies and Satagosian raiders. At the rate they’re losing fighter pilots, the UPF is willing to take any able-bodied pilot, even ex-cons. Return to prison or join the ranks. For Radha Kaden it’s not a hard decision to make. Join in the adventure as Radha finds more than she bargained for on battle station, Sentinel Five.

Then a bar brawl violates the terms of her release and she has a choice. Go back to Acheron, the harshest prison facility in the combined systems, or pilot a fighter…
Thanks to high casualty rates Wing Commander Davin McAvoy constantly needs new pilots. Dead men can’t fly Valkyries nor can they protect the base or her crew. When he’s told he’s getting that rarest of creatures—an experienced pilot—he’s ready to throw a party. Until he finds out not only is his new pilot an ex-con but she’s a woman too.

Until he meets her and sparks that have nothing to do with the war fly…
