Book Description

Ex-pirate Cantor Marlowe is drowning in femininity. Perfumes assail him morning, noon, and night. And the voices! High and trilling when calling to attract his interest. Low and throaty when whispering dark and sexy promises in his ears. Loud and strident when bringing their never-ending complaints for him to resolve.

As the governor to a fledgling colony, Cantor and his fellow pirates have entered into a pact to set down roots, self-govern without Dominion interference, and raise families on an uninhabited planet at the edge of the known galaxy. Who would have thought the ex-cons they liberated to make their wives would have so much to complain about in paradise? 'Tis no wonder Cantor itches to go a-pirating.

Martha knows how to pick a lock. What the little thief can't figure out is how to steal Cantor's heart. When Cantor's head is turned by the arrival of an innocent harem girl, Martha fears she's lost her chance at love until the girl turns to Martha for a little lesson in love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Garden of Desire April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Since I am a fan of reading whatever strikes my fancy, the abrupt scifi-ish start didn't put me off. Though there is plenty of sex in the story, it's more about one man's path from wanting to get off the planet at all costs to finding he has good reasons to stay, and wanting to do just that. It wasn't the best thing I've ever read, but it definitely had its moments of funny, sad and sexy. All that in a short story! :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor book description April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am usually a big Delilah Devlin fan. I was surprised how much I did not like this particular book. First it is very much a FFM book. Lots of intimate interaction between the 2 women- way more than eluded to in the description. Second the main female character is 17. YES 17! That just skeeved me out. Sorry Delilah this one fell flat...and had a huge yuck factor for me (the teenager). If either of these details would have been more clear in the description I would have never downloaded the book. That being said I will continue to read this author and hope next time the characters are more tolerable.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Read! June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book, it's about space pirates who explore. So the space pirates are now settling down on a planet at the edge of the galaxy, with a bunch of women prisoners approximately 396, to the 100 male pirates. They are expected to mate, and to live on this gorgeous planet and not dominate. The pirate in-charge is Cantor, and he's feeling restless and basically tired of having so many women who wish to share his bed. He's not used to sitting around and being idle, not that he's not taking care of the everyday problems, but this is boring, plus he's tired of women just coming into his cabin and seducing him in his sleep. The women who most annoys him is Martha, though the sex is amazing, and her stamina is off the charts he doesn't like the fact she picked his lock to get at him. Read this book, it will make you laugh, and cry and most importantly cum up a storm. Right from the start the pages are sizzling and just keeps getting hotter. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting twist of fantasy May 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the first book that I have read by Ms. Devlin and I enjoyed it a lot. I want to read more by her. I hope she does more in this series. It had it all futuristic pirates and dragons along with a concubine. It is a must read.

We have the ex pirate Cantor who is the Governor of an off world settlement that they can self govern. It is filled with 387 woman and not enough men. Martha realizes she wants Cantor and goes out of her way to get him. When the transport ship returned Fahgwat was with them. When Cantor first sees Fahgwat he wants her but she is a virgin and off limits. He places her in his cabin for protection, Martha realizes that she could loose the man she loves to this new harem girl. She goes out of her way to show Cantor that he is better off with them then out pirating among the stars.

More About the Author

Up until recently, award-winning author Delilah Devlin lived in South Texas at the intersection of two dry creeks, surrounded by sexy cowboys in Wranglers. These days, she's missing the wide-open skies and starry nights, but loving her dark forest in central Arkansas with its eccentric characters and isolation--the better to feed her hungry muse! To Delilah, the greatest sin is driving between the lines because it's comfortable and safe. Her personal journey has taken her through one war, many countries, cultures, jobs and relationships to bring her to the place she travels now--writing sexy novels that hold more than a kernel of autobiography and often share a common thread of self-discovery and transformation.
