Captain Aricka Badu left Taarken Prime 12 years ago for very good reasons, and she seldom goes back. It was supposed to be a short run, but, between the pirates, a brewing civil war, and her ex, she may never get to leave.
Caden Carnes hadn't seen Ari in 12 years, but he'd never stopped thinking about her. Given their past, it wasn't exactly surprising she stayed away. What was surprising was seeing her back on Taarken, the mining planet she'd abandoned along with her lover and her family, ever.
Her brother's mining hauler is missing and Caden asks for Ari's assistance, along with her ship, to go find it. One discovery leads to another, until all their secrets are out. Caden and Ari don't have long to discover the most important thing in the universe: You can actually go home again.
