Morgan is a career officer in The Fleet and she loves her job.  While she wishes for companionship, she is also not willing to give up her career.  The one man she is currently “in lust” with is the one that she has vowed to never have again.  She has no desire to be another in a long line of women that Commander Lawless leaves in his wake.

Fleet Commander Jon Lawless doesn’t understand why Morgan continually avoids him.  It is not like he took advantage of her the one night they wound up together.  In fact, she took something from him, his heart.  He can’t stop thinking of her, but if she avoids him how will he convince her that his heart is hers for the taking?

A surprise asteroid shower will change everything.  Morgan and Jon wind up on the same escape shuttle and land on an alien planet.  Now they need to work together to survive, and see if they are the only ones that did.  Will things change when they are forced to communicate and work together?

Shipwrecked takes the idea of being stranded on a desert island to a larger scope, and these characters are stranded on an unknown planet.  But, many of the same trials and tribulations confront the characters and Ms. Marquis does a fine job of including a foreign landscape and habitat into the story.  I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters.  Ms. Marquis did a wonderful job of showing how impressions can lead to misconceptions about other people, especially around topics that might be uncomfortable to actually ask about.  I enjoyed Shipwrecked and think if you are a fan of Sci-Fi erotic romances you will also.
