His duty is clear, but so is his desire. As the days tick by with no word or ransom from the Regency, Tristan begins to question what loyalty means to his Prince, the Regency he's sworn to, and to the man who holds him captive.
Tristan begins to realize that being a prisoner may actually set him free.

Space pirates, unusual men and a great author – this book was made for me! Okay, I do understand that's not quite the case, but I do fall in the group of people who absolutely thrive under the influence of this type of drug and I'm more than willing to sign up for more.
Captain Tristan Kelley works for the Regency and is employed as a guard to a certain exploitative and reckless prince. When the prince demands they head for Blind Space to reach a certain luxurious destination, Tristan has no choice but to obey, but once they are kidnapped by a band of pirates, he is forced to recognize the difference between duty and loyalty. Not to worry, there is a certain pirate willing to help him along the way.
There were so many things I liked about this book. From the fact that Tristan was blind for the bigger part of the book to the way the author showed his transitions between the dark and the light. Then there was the whole Space policy which I thoroughly enjoy reading about. The possibilities are endless and fun always just around the corner. That brings me to the pirates with their extraordinary looks and fine manners. God, it was such a trip.
I absolutely loved the romance between the two men. There were so many details that held my gaze peeled to the screen I can't even begin to list them. Part of it I think was Tristan's inability to see. Every sensation he experienced was heightened and the author did an amazing job in showing that to the reader, the connection as well as the physical aspects of that relationship. Seriously, sex was just worded right that you have to read it. Or at least I felt that way. Love that in books, when they keep my attention even through the parts I've already read in so many other books.
This is one world I would have no trouble visiting again. I admit I used to read books by Marie Sexton much more before, and while I was skeptical about the switch from contemporary, I was anything but disappointed. Sometimes it's best to stick to what works, and the perfect wording, a romance that was just meant to be, a world meant to be enjoyed is something this author does best. Perfect from the beginning to the end.
