Ruth has always been the tomboy, the last girl to be picked at the dance, but the first for any sport’s team. Offered the chance to go to space as a security officer, she leaves the toxic air of Earth for the recycled, clean air of a space station. She’s finally found a place where she can be herself—that is, until all hell breaks loose, and she’s forced onto an alien ship and into a cage. Never did she imagine she would wake twenty years later from stasis; stolen, sold, and almost sold again—but Ruth does what she does best and survives. When five sexy aliens arrive in the middle of her escape, she has no choice but to let them help. But can she really form a bond with these beings who believe she is their Other when humanity’s lost people are still being held captive by monsters?
