Book 1 in the Bounty series. When bounty hunter Gar is given a simple locate-and-retrieve mission, he's convinced it's a waste of his skills. His success rate is legendary, and this assignment is almost too easy. There isn't a more prolific space pirate in the galaxy than Captain Faolan. When he walks into a bar with a proposition heavy in mind, he's not expecting anything to go wrong. Forced from his solitary existence to work with Faolan, Gar can't deny his need and desire for a man who he should put in prison. When the hunter becomes the hunted, Gar must learn to put his faith in a man he doesn't know, or run the risk of ending up dead.
