A disastrous marriage, a stolen transport, and a court-martial - can it get any worse for pilot Tirzah Simonian? Sparks fly when the case is assigned to Advocate-Commander Zeke Lucassen, and passions heat up as these two look for a reason to trust and a reason to love!
Given a choice between fight or flight, Tirzah Simonian has always been a fighter, but when she turns to flight to escape her disastrous marriage, her life comes crashing around her in a stolen transport. Now she’s to be tried by court-martial, and an acquittal is her only chance to save her career and get her life back on track.
Advocate-Commander Zeke Lucassen has no love for women who abandon their spouses. He’s under pressure from the Fleet to close the case hard and imprison Tirzah in the work camps, but the evidence he’s been given doesn’t add up. He has to choose between believing the evidence provided by the investigator, or the growing conviction the pilot may have been acting in self-defense.
Given the horrors in their pasts, neither one has any reason to trust the other, but both their futures depend on finding common ground.
