Femme Metal

Nathalie Gray - 2005

And nothing will stop her from supplying her wealthy customers with top-grade male specimens for their brothel ships. Not even the seven-foot, blue-skinned, silver-haired wonder her customer very specifically requested. Unfortunately for Alex, she hadn't counted on the gorgeous Yithian being a Hunter or how her own attractiveness and desirability could get her and her crew into hot water. Sekmeth Meroh always gets his prey. For an exorbitant fee, he will catch anyone, of any race, on any world. He's the best of his kind-a Hunter-and sneaky to boot. Sekmeth's latest assignment-capture Alexandra Novona and her all female crew for a brothel ship near his own home world. One little problem... Neither Alex nor Sekmeth can keep their hands-or lips-to themselves.
