Unleashed Blurb

Lacey Garrett was about to be free. Before, she’d been shackled by despair. Her fiancé had run off with her business, her savings, and stuck her with his cat. What had she done to stop him? Nothing.

But she’d just been beamed to another planet. Here, she wasn’t an ordinary Earthwoman; she was part of a team. Here she could help a man like the roguish starship captain Zain Masters, could take a little weight off his broad shoulders if only he would let her. Here, she could face krudo, interplanetary defense systems, and galaxy-wide conspiracies. She could even defeat the monstrous Bobzilla that looked like her ex-fiancé! For Zain, Lacey could do anything—because his kisses, his touch, everything about him felt like destiny.

And that destiny was the true Lacey Garrett…UNLEASHED.


Unleashed Reviews

 4 1/2 Stars & a Top Pick —Romantic Times magazine

"Unlucky in love" is a bit of an understatement for programmer Lacey Garrett. Her ex-fiance Bob didn't just jilt her. He stole her half of their software design and most of her clients. She has one last chance to regain her professional footing but, one lonely night, can't resist answering one last e-mail. Little does she know that at the other end of the seemingly harmless message is planetary surveyor and interstellar fugitive Zain Masters, who, trapped on a desert planet, thinks he's stumbled upon the being with the knowledge to help him escape before the bounty hunters find him. Before Lacey can say, "Beam me up, Scotty," she's on an alien planet, in a sentient alien spaceship, with its alien captain who is all heart-stopping man. This sequel to Unearthed (2003) and Unraveled (2003) shows off Barry's flair for romantic comedy that's literally out of this world. —Nina Davis, Booklist Copyright © American Library Association.
