Charm knows how to get what she wants, but when faced with opposition, she tends to make bad choices. After a plan to subdue a Rullix goes wrong, Charm forces her way into two Auraths’ lives. They have a ship after all and can help her escape Earth and the Rullix.

Step-brothers, Thorne and Wade, are discussing Earth and mates when Charm dives into their presence. Each man believes her to be the partner he’s been waiting for. The men allow her passage in their spaceship, but are shot down by the Rullix and crash in a canyon.

Charm finds them sanctuary, yet even in the middle of nowhere, she still gets into trouble. Thorne and Wade have to figure out how to travel to Aurath before Charm’s bad choices lead to their demise.

This is book 2 in the Glorious Guild of Lady Windsurfer. This book may just be better than the first! Time has settled and all of the folks have found their way to Lady Windsurfer's house for a little R & R. This book focuses on how Wade, Thorne, and Charm got together and how they came to be mated to each other. It is an incredible story of their journey and trials they faced some twenty years earlier. The first book is set in the early years of the 22nd century, while this story mainly takes place in the last decade of the 21st. The world Jacey has created is a bit dystopian, and a bit wild west. It is a fascinating tale full of fighting and surviving, yet the love these three people find together is the driving force. No matter what, love always wins out.
Thorne Tyril is an Aurath who has traveled to earth. He has come here with his step brother Wade. They are the best of friends since their parents got together. Thorne has felt the presence of their mates in a couple of earth cities, and it has lead them to Las Vegas. With their ship out of commission, they have no choice but to wait. Vegas is a split city. The very wealthy can find the comforts and casinos, but most people live in the tent city surrounding it. Life is very hard for those people. Charm has been surviving by finding work for a merchant in the tent city, but he has made a deal with a Rullix for Charm to "entertain" him for a few days while he looks for females to abduct to his planet. Charm has always been a scrapper, never needing more than her smarts to get her out of tough spots. She decides to drug the Rullix, steal some jewels from him and escape on a ship out of the world she knows. When her plans backfire, she enlists the help of the two men to hide her from the Rullix. Both of them realize that Charm is the mate they have been sensing, and they try to leave earth in their ship. But the Rullix has awakened, and he is hunting Charm. When their ship is shot down not long after trying to leave Las Vegas, the men will find out that Charm isn't some damsel in distress that they can save. Without her help, they may not have survived the crash landing. From the moment they awaken in the cave that Charm's grandfather lives in, their adventure begins and is not an easy trek.
Can they convince Charm that they are mates? How will they survive the desert and hiding from the hunter? Can Charm let down her guard and find a life with the two step brothers? Their journey to get back to Aurath is full of twists and turns and all three of them learn a lot about what it means to find the one. This futuristic tale is such a unique world and the characters in the Guild are nothing short of incredible. If you love a great story about the struggle to find love, this book is for you. I loved this book and cannot wait to see what comes next!
