Sonja Grekov has spent her life in a gilded cage, trapped by her wealthy family’s expectations and the scroll tattoo on her face that declares her to be one of the coveted fertile women on Earth. No longer willing to be a pawn to further her parents’ ambition, she finally finds the courage to break free before she can be claimed in a loveless match. She is determined to set her own path, but never expected where it would take her...

Trevar Storm and Deacon Wilde are Alliance Elites, but there’s nothing elite about their current assignment. They crew one of the oldest freighters in the fleet, ferrying goods across Alliance controlled space with just each other for company. With a reputation for trouble and no chance at promotion, the two men are planning for the day they can go into business for themselves and leave their military lives behind.

A straightforward supply run turns into a life changing event when the two elites discover a treasure hidden in their cargo bay. Keeping their sexy stowaway may bring the full wrath of the Alliance down on their heads, but Trevar and Deacon won’t let her go without a fight. Will their journey end in heartache, or can three misfit hearts find love in the darkness between the stars?

3013: Stowaway is the fourth book in the 3013: The Series.   Author Susan Hayes does an amazing job of spinning a new twist into the 3013 series.  I love her sense of humor, made me really smile and laugh as I read this particular book.
Sonja we met in Renegade.  She is the daughter of wealthy parents. She is also a scroll. She has been pampered and protected for the uses of her greedy parents.  They want her to have the right match that would make them most money.   Sonja true to when we met her in Renegade she is a rebel. She wants her own life with her own choices.  She is willing to jump on the first transport ship to take that life for herself.
Trevar Storm is an empath.  He travels with his friend Deacon Wilde they are both Alliance Elites.  But they are the outcastes because of their gifts.  Deke can interface with computers.  He doesn’t show much emotion.  Because of these things most people stay away from him.   He has resigned himself to never having a scroll of his own. He wants one but he knows no woman would want a man like himself.
Trevar ‘s gift keeps him from wanting to be around too much emotion. So his best friend Deke is perfect for him.  He wants a scroll someday but wants to travel and make a business first.  I liked his laid back sunny personality it is a great contrast to the darker personality of Deke. They complement each other very well.
These two never thought to be a family unit until they have a sexy stowaway.  Sonja is the game changer for them both.   Her spirit, love, and care heals something inside of both men.
Ms. Hayes brings together romance, love, and a great sense of humor to make Stowaway an unforgettable story.   Stowaway is a part of a series that should be read in order.  I am really looking forward to the next story in the 3013 and who falls in love next.
