Craig, first mate of the Galaxia pirates, returns after a personal vacation to find a new and interesting face amongst the crew. He instantly sets his sights to capturing the feisty navigator.
Tony and Craig's awakening relationship is pulled into turmoil when mercenaries corner the Galaxia, demanding they hand over Antonio Santiago – Tony's past has officially caught up with him.

When Tony is handed over to the mercenaries, at the cost of one crewmember's life, Craig is frantic to find him and discover the traitor. Tony isn't just going to sit back either. He's determined to get out of the situation and back to the Galaxia and Craig's arms.

ABROAD IN THE STARS is the first book in the Galaxia Pirates series, and we get a very thorough look at just what being a Galaxia pirate involves. Tony is their navigator, and has done a magnificent job of it so far, earning his place among the crew. Only a select few know of his 'real' identity of Antonio Santiago. Personally, I would say that Tony is more real than Antonio, but there you go. When the Captain's brother returns to the ship, sparks fly between him and Tony. Actually it was more than sparks that flew when they first met in a dark alley, but you'll read that bit for yourself. When Tony's parents decide they want him back, the crew of the Galaxia will do all they can to get their crewman back. And Craig will stop at nothing until he gets his lover back.
This is a brilliant story, HOWEVER if you are looking for rainbows and unicorns, then you're probably going to be disappointed! Personally, I loved the rough and tumble of it. Tony wanted exactly what Craig wanted to give. Both of them understood each other with no miscommunication. The steamy scenes are intense and brilliantly written. The world-building is mostly about the ship and Tony's family, but really, that is all you need for this story. You get an exceedingly good idea of the troubles the pirates face, and how much being a crew member means to them, and just what they will do if one of them is in danger.
Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this story grabbed me from the beginning. Fantastic start to the series, fantastic story, can't wait for more. Absolutely recommended by me.
