CORSAIRS: STRAIK

 

 

What’s worse than finding a lost ship full of stolen humans? It’s finding out that your family is responsible. This is a wrong I have to somehow right, so I take off to find answers…and discover one of those kidnapped humans has stowed away on my ship.

She’s furious that I’ve deserted her friends. She’s determined to make me pay. Ruth swears vengeance and won’t be satisfied until she sees me destroyed.

It’s a battle of wills I’m determined to win.

Instead of breaking Ruth, I find that I’ll do just about anything to get her to kiss me again.

 

 

A Note for Sensitive Readers

 

 

Hello there!

In my ongoing quest to be more thoughtful, I’m working on providing content warnings for sensitive readers in my books. You don’t have to read this page, as it contains spoilers, but if you are a more sensitive reader, you might want to mentally ‘prepare’ for the road ahead. As always, if I’ve missed something you feel is upsetting, let me know and I’ll update this list. Please see below!

 

SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD

 

— References to human slavery

— References to past abuse of heroine

— Toxic parents

— Some on-page violence

— Pregnancy (honestly if you’ve read my books before, this will be zero surprise to you, but I thought I’d include it anyhow)

STRAIK

 

A water bath is the ultimate luxury in space. Potable water is always at a premium, and sitting and stewing in a bath until the water gets cold around me? Some might call it selfish. Up until a few days ago, that never bothered me. I come from the sa'Rin family. I am Straik sa'Rin, Fifth of the Name. My family has always been accustomed to fine things. To demanding privilege. To expecting more, simply because of who I am.

Up until a few days ago, I would have smirked at concerns. I would have deliberately wasted more water, perhaps, simply to show that I am not affected by such trivial concerns.

But that was before I learned the truth about my family. About sa'Rin credits. And now I'm questioning everything.

I lean back in the cold water, unwilling to get out just yet. The tub in my private quarters is enormous, as I'd requested when I had The Darkened Eye built. Just because I'm going into a life of piracy doesn't mean that I don't want to live in luxury, after all, and if I'm going to live on my ship, I want my comforts. My bed is twice the size of the quarters the a'ani crew is assigned. My clothing, while all black, is of the finest make, with black embroidery of my house symbol around the edges of every sleeve and collar. My weapons are top notch. My ship is of the highest caliber. My crew is well-trained and loyal.
