Book Blurb

Kidnapping your mate is wrong. Even Crank knows that. But when his mate's life is threatened, all Crank can think about is getting the little neon-green-haired man to safety. It's just too bad that Anok refuses to be mated.

Crank goes into mating heat the moment he scents his mate. With Anok refusing to be mated, Crank's only choice is to be sedated until his commander can decide what to do with him and Anok can be dropped off on the closest planet. Giving him up at that point is impossible, unless he wants to go feral and have to be put down for the safety of everyone, especially Anok.

Anok is confused about the emotions Crank creates in him. He's seen what mates do to each other firsthand, and he wants no part of it, but he can't deny the draw to the handsome cougar shifter. When Crank gets sedated and everyone starts blaming him, Anok decides he needs to know what being mated means. He can think of only one person that can show him, and he's unconscious. But is he brave enough to have Crank awakened?


Book Review

I was waiting for Crank's story! Why? Because he was the last of the original crew members to find his mate and it had been kind of sad watching him longing and yearning for the man who would be his.

Anok is very happy being a courier of documents between planets and galaxies. He's taken care of himself for a very long time on the streets and he's happy being by himself. He saw what happened to his mom from her mate and he doesn't believe in the true mate bond decreed by fate. He thinks it's a myth! Imagine his surprise when trying to do a good deed nets him a cougar shifter claiming they are mates and kidnapping him aboard the Lady Blue.

Crank is just glad he's found his mate but doesn't understand why Anok doesn't want him or their mating. For a cougar shifter, once the mating heat begins, he has until the next full moon to claim his mate or go completely feral and have to be put down. Already Crank is feeling the instability within himself and he begs the doc to sedate him until Anok can be dropped off at another planet.

Anok doesn't understand what is going on, but he knows that Crank brings out feelings in him he's never had before. In order to get some understanding he knows he'll have to go to Crank and hope that mating him is as wonderful as everyone else says it is.
