A Handsome Space Pirate.
A Beautiful, Brave Woman.
Love that's out of this world...
To honor the debt her family owes Slayter Cardona, beautiful Teyla Dunai agrees to let him sell
her as a sex slave in the markets of Arkhon. Determined to bring as much value as she can on
the auction block, but inexperienced where men are concerned, she asks the handsome pirate if
he’ll teach her how to pleasure a man. Intrigued, and more than a little attracted to the lavender-
eyed beauty, Slayter agrees.
As he initiates her into the world of bondage, spanking and out-of-this-galaxy sex, though, both
Teyla and Slayter find themselves falling for each other. But Slayter has a responsibility to his
crew, and Teyla knows it is her duty to pay off her family’s debt. With the deal already agreed
upon, there doesn’t seem to be any way for their story to have a happy ending. Or is there?

“Have you ever been to Arkhon before?” she asked, trying to distract herself so she wouldn’t stare at him.
Slayter sopped up what was left of his stew with a piece of bread. “Once.”
She would have thought he’d go there more since he was a pirate. “What will happen when we get there?”
He hesitated. “I’m not quite sure. I’ve never sold a slave before, but I imagine it will be the same process as selling anything else there.”
Meaning she would be put on the auction block and sold to the highest bidder. “Do you know if buyers look for certain things when they
purchase a sex slave?”
He frowned slightly. “I suppose.”
“You don’t think they’ll want to…sample the merchandise before they buy, will they?”
“I’m sure some buyers might, but I don’t think the people who run the auction would allow that.” Slayter must have seen the relief on her
face because he gave her a reassuring smile. “You don’t have anything to be concerned about, Teyla. You’re a very beautiful woman. Any
man can see that.”
Considering the situation, the compliment shouldn’t have warmed her like it did, but she felt herself blush anyway. “It’s just that I don’t have
very much experience when it comes to sex. I mean, I’m not a virgin, but I haven’t been with a lot of men, either. I’m concerned potential
buyer will know right away that I’m inexperienced.” She looked at him from beneath lowered lashes. “I don’t want you to come out on the
short end of this exchange.”
He shook his head. “I really don’t think that’s going to be a problem.”
She frowned. “Maybe, but my family would be very embarrassed if I didn’t earn enough money on the block to cover the debt.” She took a
deep breath and let it out slowly. “This is very difficult to ask, but do you think you might be able give me some advice on how best to
please a man?”
“Advice?” His eyes went a little wide at that, and he cleared his throat. “Uh, actually, sex is more of a…hands-on thing.”
Teyla chewed on her lower lip. She couldn’t believe she was even contemplating what she was about to do, but the thought that one of her
sisters might end up where she was if she didn’t earn the required money to cover the debt was enough to give her the courage she
She lifted her gaze to look at Slayter. “Would you be willing to give me hands-on experience then?”
He arched a brow, but didn’t say anything. From the expression on his face, though, it was clear he was taken aback by her request.
“I know I probably shouldn’t be asking you for favors, but I just want to make sure you receive the money my family owes you.” When he still
didn’t answer, she added softly, “If you don’t find me pleasing enough to bed, I understand.”
She was afraid to think what that would mean when it came to her value on the auction block. What would happen if no one bid on her at
The corner of Slayter’s mouth curved. “I find you quite pleasing, Teyla. Perhaps more than I should.”
Her pulse quickened. “Then you’ll teach me?”
There was a very long pause, then, “Yes, I’ll teach you. If that’s what you really want.”
“It is. Can we start now?”
They only had a few days before they reached Arkhon, and she didn’t want to waste any time.
He hesitated, then nodded. “If you’d like.”
Slayter might have seemed hesitant when she’d first brought it up, but now that he had agreed, she could see the fire burning in his eyes.
Something told her the pirate would be a very thorough teacher. Heat pooled between her thighs at the thought of him showing her all the
different ways she could pleasure a man. She might learn more with him in a few days than she probably ever would have with the men on
Slayter stood and came around to her side of the table. Taking her hand, he gently pulled her to her feet. Teyla had known out the pirate
was tall when she’d stood in front of him in the cargo hold earlier, but now she realized just how tall he really was. She barely came up to
those broad shoulders of his.
She waited for Slayter to say something, but he simply gazed down at her. The smolder in his gold eyes took her breath away and she
swayed toward him. Her reaction to being so close to him caught her off guard, but before she could steady herself, he lowered his head
and covered her mouth with his.
The kiss took her by surprise and for a moment she didn’t know how to respond. She hadn’t expected Slayter to do something so intimate.
She’d thought they would shed their clothes and get to it. But as his mouth moved slowly and deliciously over hers, she melted against the
hard wall of his chest. He slid his hand in her long hair, deepening the kiss with a groan. Teyla parted her lips under his, sighing with
pleasure when his tongue invaded her mouth to claim hers. She ran her hands up his chest to clutch his shoulders, afraid if she didn’t hold
on to something that she would fall. She didn’t know a man’s kisses could be so intoxicating.
Or that the feel of his hands on her body could set her afire. But as his free hand slid up her midriff to cup her breast through the thin
material of her dress, the heat that had pooled between her thighs earlier completely engulfed her. If she responded to him like this when
they were fully clothed, how was she going to react when they were both naked?
That was when she remembered the purpose behind what they were doing. She was supposed to be learning how to pleasure Slayter, but
instead it was the other way around. She wondered if she should remind him of that, but as he trailed kisses along the curve of her jaw and
down her neck, she decided to play the willing student and leave the teaching part to him.

"OUCH! I think my hand is on fire from holding my ereader so tight! Have mercy the scenes were scorching and I continually found myself
putting my ereader in a chock hold. LOL!
Off to the sex slave auction, a typical day for a female from Teyla’s planet. Her father owes a pirate, Slayter, quite a bit of money. In order
to save his business, Teyla willingly offers herself to pay her fathers debt.
Never had he sold someone. Now this woman willingly offers herself to pay her fathers debt and Slayter finds himself in the process of
doing just that…selling a woman into sex slavery. However when Teyla asks him to teach her some carnal ways, Slayter finds she quickly
owns him. The idea of her belonging to another is just unacceptable. This realization is too late, because Teyla is taken by his enemy and
headed for the auction block.
The storyline was strong for a very erotic read. Sometimes when there is strong erotic content the story will lack, not the case here. I got it
and I liked it :D I want more from Paige Tyler!"

"Right from the start I found myself falling for Slayter. He may be a pirate but he is an honest man who lives by a code of conduct and
truly cares for his men. When Teyla asks for lessons he is more than ready to help her out, what he’s not ready for is his growing
feelings for her. Teyla is such a strong woman; she takes on so much and never thinks twice about helping those that she cares about.
Watching their relationship bloom was a great read. The sparks ignite between the two from their first meeting and continue until they
grow into the flames that burn up the pages of this story. I loved watching both Teyla and Slayter recognize their feelings and finally
come to terms with them.
This author does a wonderful job of bringing the characters in this story to life and making me feel their emotions so strongly. If you
enjoy stories with not only great characters but also an engaging plot than this is the book for you. I enjoyed the romance that
developed throughout the story, it had me rooting for Slayter and Teyla to find their happily ever after!"
