Elona is a noble woman who is posing as a painted lady; she talks with passengers and gets them drunk. She is looking for her twin sister. Elona owned a business but left her planet to find her sister. She decided to be a painted lady so she could get information on her sister's whereabouts.

Elona has been jailed for days and she still doesn't know what crime she committed and no one will tell her. She knows that whatever the crime, it's a death sentence.
Does Lance find his father? Will Elona get out of jail? Does Elona find her sister? Can Lance and Elona make a life together? You'll have to read it to find out!
3. Writing Structure ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Charles has weaved a story with a blend of sci-fi and a western. It's a great combination and he takes you on a journey of a space and western adventure. Mason is a man who looks at his life as a lawman and the choices he's made. He longs for Jessica but doesn't know if he'll see her again. Lance gambles with everything - his life, with Elona and with doing the right thing. He sees his faults and wonders if he can change. Elona is willing to search the galaxy to find her sister. In the midst of her search, she meets Lance. She's never met a man like him. The three of them work together to help each other find their answers.
4. Ending ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The ending is out of this world! It is fast-paced and engaging! There's lots and lots of action! You begin to see how the three "step up to the plate" to help each other! Without spoiling anything - the best I can say - it's an edge of your seat and thrilling ending!
5. Overall ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is Charles' second book. I've never read this type of book and I must be honest to say how much I enjoyed it! He's created characters that grow and develop; with each chapter, you begin to care for Mason, Lance and Elona. I also love how Charles writes about the vulnerability of Mason and Lance; they are tough on the outside but are unsure of themselves on the inside. This is a well-written story that I highly recommend!! I look forward to reading more stories from Charles!!
