Longings of a Slave by Sophie Kisker
Coming September 30th
On a world where all women are slaves, one woman refuses to submit.
Enna is a runaway, forced to hide in the desert mountains with others like her. But despite the harsh environment, what she’s escaped from was intolerable, and she will never let herself be captured. When a chance comes to find her daughter, ripped from her arms just months before by her sadistic master, she only has her courage to fall back on, because she trusts no one else. Especially another man.
Captain Matias Acoff found his missing sister on Midros, kidnapped as a child from their home planet and raised as a slave. Now he’s helping to sort out other kidnapped women and return them to their homes. When he meets Enna, he finds himself involved with a group of runaway slaves. Even if she accepts his help to find her daughter, he can’t free her. She’ll always be a fugitive. And if she’s found, the law is clear, and the punishment for running is severe. When his assignment ends, how can he leave behind the woman he’s come to love, to face that by herself?
