Balzak Lars is your average galactic hitchhiker: young, adventurous, good-natured-and quite eager to keep his real name hidden. When he finds himself framed for his uncle's crimes and in the hands of pirates eager to earn the bounty on his head, he has no one to turn to but one of the pirates themselves.
Though he has been burned by love in the past, Morgan Reid can't help but fall for this handsome stranger in trouble. For this man who inflames him with desire, he's willing to stand against dangerous crewmates, murderous aliens and his own fear of betrayal.
But the question remains: who framed Balzak and what will they do if their plans are foiled?
