Dreams fill her nights. Nightmares fill her days.
The only thing worse than being a human nectar slave on Anteros is being bought by a tentacled alien who carries her away from everyone she knows. Now, all Keelie has left are dreams of two Anterrin men whose faces she never sees.
Siridin Sens is fleeing Anteros. When he finds a wrecked ship with a nectar slave survivor, it's a complication he doesn't need. She's disobedient, even after trips over his knees for a thorough spanking. And when she starts telling stories of hearing a ghost, he's had enough, and vows to get rid of her as soon as he can.
But the universe has other plans.
Can Keelie convince Siridin that her dreams carry a message for him, too?
Can Siridin save Keelie after he makes the biggest mistake of his life?
