Harlow is a Subservient, created to serve the military's needs. Even though her kind's been freed and she's managed to become a military captain, she still struggles with relating to humans, many of whom hate or fear her. So when a hot new navigator comes aboard her ship and she can't stop imagining him naked above her, she has no idea how to handle the pleasurable distraction.
Parker is a genetically engineered soldier, modified to be the strongest, brightest and fastest. But not even he is strong enough to fight the pull between him and his new captain.
As their attraction grows and the affair deepens, they have to work together to stop a political coup. If they fail, Harlow will lose the ship she loves. Parker doesn't know if she's capable of sharing his feelings, but he's willing to risk it all to protect her.
