The beginning of this story includes a
Prologue and definitions for the reader’s enjoyment to better
understand the setting of the story. This is a stand-alone
book, but is also part of the Hunters for Hire series.
Dean Savage is a bounty hunter and half-Rabian shape-shifter.
As a mixed breed, Dean’s shifting is brought on mostly during
anger or arousal. Alaya is the wife Dean left behind three
years ago. As the story opens, Dean has finally decided to
either consummate his marriage to Alaya or end it.
In Savage, before Dean can
take action to correct matters with Alaya, a distress call is
intercepted by Bounty Hunters, Inc. Alaya’s planet Sa-Ro Five
has been attacked by a gang of pirates known for their
brutality and blood-thirstiness. Dean sets out on his own
with the help of A.L. 110, otherwise known as Al, an android
with new more human-like upgrades. Between Dean and Al, they
leave Bounty Hunters, Inc, with two ships and enough weapons
and other droids in hopes of saving Alaya and others on Sa-Ro
Five. Dean’s rescue mission is two-fold: save the inhabitants
of Sa-Ro Five and convince his wife to consummate their
marriage and make a future with him.
Dean and Alaya’s reunion has all the
right ingredients: desire, passion, jealousy. The sexual
scenes are graphic and the story is fast-paced and enjoyable.
